I have a confession: we didn’t run the 10K that we had signed up for this past weekend.
And I have no regret. Between our weekend filling up so quickly, coupled with the fact that Evan’s knees have been bothering him (I guess you hit 30 and fall apart…) and my realization that I was just not at all motivated to run right now, we ditched our race.
So technically, my “reward” of a new Stitch Fix for running a 10K became just a fun spring surprise My friend Lara’s family came over this weekend to have a co-garage sale with us, so I had some friend input on this new Fix – always a plus over my so-not-interested husband. I had a new stylist this time, and I have to say that Barbara just ROCKED it! And she wrote the sweetest accompanying note, so she just may be my new permanent stylist
So here’s what I got for my third Stitch Fix…
How cute is this Pixley Kathy Striped Fit & Flare Dress! But is it me? And the back is a little more “open” than I usually like to go. But it’s so cute… and bonus – Brenna-friendly! We all know I love a good stripe. I think yes on this one?!
The Market & Spruce Julia Utility Jacket was such a disappointment – because it was SO CUTE…but just a touch too big in the shoulders/sleeves. I love it so much that I think I’ll ask if there is any chance they have it in a petite size… to accommodate my short alligator-like arms It’s exactly what I’m looking for in a spring jacket! (And it looks fantastic with the striped dress!)
The Bancroft Leighton Metal Bauble Necklace was love at first sight! I don’t have anything like this, and I like everything about it. Done and done – it’s staying put right here on my neck.
On to the next items… dressy tops!
So I love this pop of color from this top! I think my two other tops that I’ve kept from previous StitchFixes have been from 41Hawthorn, which this top is too, so I clearly like their style. This one is the Rosa Tab Sleeve VNeck Top. The color is fantastic, and I love that you could dress it up or down. I think I’m going keep this one… thoughts?
And lastly… Lara and I oohed when I pulled this top out. It’s the Tucker Split Back Blouse from Renee C, and it’s such a fun pattern (and another Brenna-friendly top!) I think this one might be a keeper too, what do you think?
If you’re interested in giving StitchFix a try, I’d love for you to sign up with my referral code! Here’s what I tell all my friends – I absolutely LOVE it, and I tend to be a more frugal type of shopper – there are different price points you can pick, so I chose the least expensive. Most of my items have ranged from the $20s for the jewelry up to the $70s for the jackets. The tops have averaged in the $40s, which I will pay for a nice top that I love. I’ve already gotten their worth times one hundred out of the items from my previous fixes. Because they do tend to be on the higher side of my personal price point, I definitely only stick with the items that I absolutely love, and it’s worked well so far. No regrets at all! Some of my friends invest a little more in their wardrobes and it’s been fun to see what they get too… and then I always tell them I’m just going to borrow from them
If you’re new to Stitch Fix, you fill out a profile with your sizes and personal style info. They send you 5 items, and you have 3 days to decide what to keep. You can write a note to your stylist and request certain types of items. You can schedule regular fixes, or like I do, just every once in a while when you want to go “shopping”. I think I’ve made a purchase at the mall once since signing up last fall… Stitch Fix is so convenient – and so exciting when a new package arrives!
