Fabulous Friday - the Stitch Review #4 (it's a keeper)

Happiest of Friday's!

This week was the official start of school and Friday could not have come at a better time!! It's been a wild week getting used to my new job and figuring out school drop offs and pickups with FIVE kiddos! I'm happy to report that it is not as hectic as I thought it would be and I absolutely adore having so many kids!! It's not always easy and their nap schedules don't always match up but I love it so much. 

I got a "present" in the mail - it was from Stitch Fix and without giving anything away, I think it's safe to say that I LOVED this fix!!!! I might have to keep it all.  

How it works is you sign up and then fill out your profile and identify your style preferences, then schedule a Fix and they send you 5 items to try on.  You get charged a $20 styling fee but that goes towards any of the items you choose to keep.  If you keep all five items they give you a 25% discount.  It's really fun and you get to try on not only the items they ship you but with other pieces you currently have in your closet!!

I chose to not have them send me any accessories since I haven't liked any of them so far...and that has proven to be a good choice.

SO here it is y'all, enjoy!!

Not only did I get the sweetest note from my stylist but she really hit this one out of the park. I always asked myself (in my head) how all these other bloggers and friends got such great Fixs and mine were all lack luster. Well I think with the honest feedback and detailed requests it's finally starting to work for me. 

Andplusalso please forgive the horrible lighting, dirty mirrors and overall awful selfies. But do take notice of my adorable photo bomber!!

Kut from the Kloth Iriss Twill Short in Olive

At first I was hesitant about the shorts when I saw them on the idea card.   After I put them on I was still a bit unsure.  I liked the color and thought all the pockets were fun and I liked the wide waistband, but the fit around my thunder thighs was a little tighter than I prefer.  They are also a bit longer than what I usually buy (which probably isn't a bad thing)...

No there is nothing wrong with my legs...that is just one dirty mirror thanks to somebody's hands pushing on it daily.  Why don't I notice how dirty these mirrors are in person?  It really sticks out in pictures.  As you can see they are a bit form fitting but maybe if I do some jumping jacks and lunges my thighs will thin out a bit??

The beauty of Stitch Fix is getting to try on these items with other pieces of clothing in your closet.  These shorts look great with a relaxed black tee.  After further review (and thinking about going to Disneyland in a couple weeks) these shorts might have to stay considering the other pieces I got in this Fix, it might be worth it to keep them for the 25% discount for all 5 items.  (Photobomb!!)

Pixley Indianan Graphic Print Mixed Material Tee in Light Grey

When I first saw this on the card my thought was - just what I need: Another Grey top!!! But you know what? I love Grey and that is probably the reason why I have so many options in my closet and so many other home items in this color (bathroom, Ellie's room, house color, etc)  Plus I cannot get over the patterned detail on the shoulders and backside.  

How cool, right?!!

I love that it is a V-neck, because those really are my favorite and its a relaxed fit so I can actually eat while wearing it.  I remember back in the day (high school) where a top could not be short enough or tight the longer and looser the better!!  I don't know if that is because of trends or age, but I am way more comfortable in something that doesn't look like its painted on!!  Not to mention that the armpits are pretty loose so I don't think I have to worry about sweat when I get hot (which is basically all the time...)

So I am pretty sure this one is a keeper...what do you think?

Liverpool Mira Skinny Jean in Blue

Okay these were practically a joke when I pulled them out of the box.  I know that my Stylist mentioned in my note that they are are favorite of moms but the wide elastic waistband kind of reminded me of a maternity pant (even though I have never worn a pair).  But when I tried them on, they weren't extremely long (actually kind of were the right length) and I loved the waistband.  It hit me right in the area I am self conscious about to "cover" it up and I loved them.  

I might not be able to front tuck my shirts all the time since the waistband isn't something I want to accentuate but I do love how stretchy they are and the wide waistband allows me to squat down and sit on the floor without having a "plumbers crack" showing - so that in and of itself is a bonus.

And again they look pretty good with some of my own things so they just might have to stick around...any thoughts?

Market & Spruce Aleah Heathered V-neck Dolman Top in Green

I think that Stitch Fix must have some sort of agreement with Market & Spruce because I have gotten something from them in all of my fix's.  I know that a lot of other bloggers have requested this item, I didn't and when I saw it on the outfit card I thought that for sure I was going to hate this top.  I did ask for something that would transition into Fall  and my stylist knows I love green.  After I put this one on I was like "Oh, that's why everyone loves it"...I love the fit and the material is really soft and stretchy.  The sleeves hit at the right part of my arm - I cannot stand having clothes on my wrists, I always roll up my sleeves...

It's nice and loose in all the right places and its long enough to cover my assets when I don't want to show them off or feel like throwing on a pair of leggings... And again with the V-neck speaking my language once again.  

See how loose and drapey it is around my midsection??

The color is so perfect that it goes so well with my favorite scarf!!  I can see this top taking a permanent spot in my clothing rotation!!

Can we please talk about how dirty my mirror is? I swear it doesn't look that bad in person...

Daniel Rainn Eliza Crochet Detail Blouse in Navy

Hot Damn!!! I am on the search for the perfect floral top - so I ask for one in every fix.  When I saw this one on the suggestion card I loved it and hoped that it was going to look just as good on.  This one totally takes the cake on any that I have received.  It has the best flowers on it, the color is flattering and I love the fit and the lacey crochet detail on the sleeves.

If ever there was a floral top I would pick out myself, this would probably be one of them.

Seriously, I couldn't stop smiling once I put it on.  This one is a KEEPER fo' sho'!!!!

I decided to not look at the pricing card until after I tried everything on because I didn't want that to sway my choices, but I was pleasantly surprised at the price points of each item.  And if I got all 5 items I would receive a 25% discount which makes the floral blouse free!!! I am pretty sure that I would wear each and every item in this fix multiple times and they would be a great investment!!
