You guys. My stylist (that's right, I have a stylist. Don't you? Why not? This IS my third post about this stuff) sent me the box from Heaven. 
I LOVE 4/5 items, but I am keeping all 5 because I will pay less keeping all five and getting 25% off the total than if I sent the one item back that I don't like. 
Pretty colors!

You guys. Unless you work with me and have heard me talk about this jacket thing forever, you have no idea how excited I am that I got this. My friend Brooke got it at school and as soon as I saw it, I knew I needed it. Apparently, my stylist agreed, because she sent it to me. :o)
 It even has pockets!

 Featured here we have the Berneen Dolman Knit Top by 41Hawthorn paired with the Anita Skinny Pant by Liverpool. Amazing. I think I will be wearing this to school tomorrow.
 I wish there was a way to describe the fabric of this top. But there isn't. So you will just have to sign up for your own box and request this shirt to experience it yourself. ;o)
And wait till you hear this. My AMAZING stylist said in her note to me that I requested black skinny pants in the FIRST FIX (three months ago) and we had struck out, so she was trying again! Can you believe this? This woman remembered my request and struck gold. I am already searching for more of these pants on ebay. They are amazing. I don't think I will be able to wear pants from a store other than Stitch Fix ever again.
 And this dress will be sold online. If you would like it message me in the comments below. It is horrible on me. I am sure it would be lovely on anyone else. Sparky told me that I look Amish in it. Nothing says sexy quite as much as the Amish. Oh, wait. Anything says sexy more than the Amish. That is exactly what the Amish don't want.
 I can hardly  believe I am posting this photo. Wow.
Shockingly, the fabric of this dress is really really nice. It is thick and well made. And instead of actually being gray, it is a black and white very fine stripe which appears gray. It is much prettier in the box in real life. Am I convincing you to buy it yet? ;o)
 Last up we have this scarf. This is the Avia Stripe and Dot Infinity Scarf by Octavia. I probably don't need any scarfs, but I like the color. It is more coral-like in real life. Also, I like infinity scarfs much better than others because they don't choke me and make me too hot. So I am keeping it.
 Here is my awesome styling card, so I know how to wear everything.

Sitch Fix #2... a month late

Hey. Well all know I suck at blogging so let's just move past the fact that I waited two months since my last post. ::hangs head in shame::

Well, I got Sparky to take pictures of my in the items I got in last month's Sitch Fix box since I was already wearing one of the items anyway!

He was a good sport.

In case you forget what Stich Fix is, and you are incapable of scrolling to the next post, here is some info I stole right from their page.

I love it. It is SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO much fun to receive a box of five items on your doorstep. 
Here is what I got in my second box: 
First up is my outfit from today. I dress for indoor temperatures. So although it was 72 outside today, the air was on in the school. That means in inside temp. was about 42. The top is from Stitch Fix. It is the  Fierro Elbow Patch Crew Neck Sweater by Market & Spruce. It is hard to tell in photos, but the sweater is a light mint color with turquoise-ish elbow patches. (pants are sevens from some store, necklace on clearance from Target, boots Born) 


The next THREE items from my box are below. The shirt is the Canon Button Detail Striped Knit Top by Loveappella, pants are the Denna Colored Skinny Jean (red?!) by Kut From The Kloth, and the necklace is the Genevieve Stacked Chevron Pendant Necklace by Romolo. 
These pants. Oh. My. Goodness. I love them. I wish I had them in every color ever created. They feel like I am wearing sweat pants, but they look much nicer. The ONLY complaint I have is that the card and tag call these pants "red." They clearly aren't red to anyone who has eyes. They are maroon, or some pinkey hue. No one would ever dream of calling these red. I would still like a good pair of red pants, but I LOVE THESE pants so much I don't care what color they are. 
In fact, I love these pants so much that I went to a Nordstrom Rack down in FL while I was on spring break and tried on some shorts by the same brand. I got two pairs. I initially only bought one, but I loved them as much as the pants and had to go back and get another pair because I cannot imagine wearing any other shorts this summer. 


 With Wyatt. :o)

At this point, you may be noticing I look like a stuffed sausage in this shirt. You would be correct. I don't enjoy shirts this tight. While the teachers at school assure me that this shirt accentuates my hourglass figure, I know the truth. It shows off my rolls and makes me look ridiculous. I believe I will be trying to sell it online. It was worth keeping to get the 25%off for keeping all 5 items.
 Here is a close-up of the necklace. I would never pick this up at the store, but I love it. I have a military-inspired jacket that it was absolutely made for. I am basically unable to wear the jacket without this necklace now.

Last up is the Ivy Petal Print Blouse by Pixley. LOVE. As soon as I saw this in the box I knew it was a keeper. It love the print. I thought it might be too boxy when I held it up, but it is much better on.
 Random picture of me turning around. That is how I roll..

Stitch Fix 1

I got my first Stitch Fix box in the mail yesterday when I got home from the 100th day of school!!! I ripped my gray wig off, threw my granny outfit on the floor, and hopped into these bad boys.
Just you wait.
It was as amazing as I was expecting.
Unfortunately, it was nearly impossible to take pictures of myself using my phone camera in a full length mirror.
I only have one full length mirror in the house and it hangs in an awkward alcove in my bedroom. The light from the hall doesn't get reach it, the light from the bathroom doesn't make it out the door, and the light from the bedroom only goes far enough to let me use the mirror to make sure I don't have toilet paper sticking to the bottom of my shoe, but not enough to show detail on outfits.

It's amazing.
The box is pretty.

So is the packaging:

 1st up is the Jarred Lace Detail Cap-Sleeve Blouse:

 I love the higher neckline so I can still bend over to help the little kids at their tables, but the lace detail adds interest.
 The back is AMAZING! I call this a mullet shirt. Business in front, party in back!
 The fabric is wonderful, it has a long cut and I love it. It is a keeper!

Next up is the Stellan Draped Cardigan:

Who doesn't love a good cardigan. This one is ridiculously soft. the stripe is cute and adds interest to solid colored tops.


 Next, The Estrella Skinny Jean:
 I wore these jeans in all the photos. I wasn't too sure if they were too tight or not. They are skinny jeans, so they are supposed to be tight. But how tight is too tight? That is where my colleagues came into play today! Thanks guys! They assured me that these fit perfectly.

My favorite, Tiller Sailboat Sweater:
 I wore this one to school today with khaki pants and sperrys. I got more compliments on my top than I have ever gotten on one top in my life. The fit is perfect, the boat is awesome, and I will be wearing this as my new uniform. Be prepared to see this sweater a lot.

Last, Freida Regular Length Skinny Jean:

Unfortunately, these pants didn't fit. I am still marveling over the fact that these people who have never seen me before were able to send me a pair of JEANS in the mail and they fit me perfectly. So the fact that this pair of pants didn't fit didn't make me too upset. The only bummer was, if these had fit I would have saved 25% on my entire order since I loved everything!!





 Here is the note I got from my Personal Stylist. I am fancy.
