A JOURNEY IN RUNNING, LIVING, LAUGHING AND LOVING

Stitch Fix #15: AKA the time I contemplated spending $38 on leggings

Sunday, October 18, 2015

Time is absolutely FLYING in our world! Our son turned 8-months-old, I've been running being a crazy KEEP Collective lady, and we've been planning all sorts of fun activities with our family and friends! I almost forgot that I had another Fix coming... ALMOST.

If you don't know about Stitch Fix (<--Referral link!), let me give you a little rundown. Stitch Fix is a clothing subscription service, and you decide how frequently, or infrequently, you'd like a shipment. You'll fill out a detailed style profile about your sizes, style preferences, and budget (and it's super fun to fill out the profile to see what your style preferences are!). 

Then, you decide when you'd like to receive a shipment! Stitch Fix will send you five clothing items or accessories to try on in your own home! This is perfect for seeing if the pieces you receive will work with the pieces you already have. Your Fix also arrives with detailed styling cards to give you ideas of how to wear each item. Each Fix costs $20, but the fee is credited toward anything you decide to keep. When you've decided what you don't want, you simply check out online and mail the items back in the prepaid mailing envelope. If you keep everything, you score a 25% discount! I love that I can work with my current wardrobe to see what will work best with what I already have. 

And, if someone signs up through your referral link, you get a $25 credit to use toward your next purchase! 

You can see my previous Fixes here:


This time around, Tan chose a few swings and a few misses for me, but I would really love some outside opinions. What would you keep? And what would you ditch immediately? :) 

1. Mystree Jalila Mixed Material Knit Top, $58
Normally Tan hits it out of the park, but this top is just, no. I don't love the mixed material. I don't love the flouncy hem. I just. Don't. Love. It. 

2. MTLA Kristin Fleece Legging, $38 
3. Crescent Tinsley Lace Detail Blouse, $58
I think three years ago, I would have LOVED this top! But my first thought now is, I can't wear a real bra with this, and that's annoying. Super cute, but not necessarily something I need in my closet at this top. But these leggings. Oh. My. Gosh. They feel like what I would imagine wearing a fluffy cloud feels like. So, so soft. And they're $38, but they're a perfect shade of burgundy and did I mention that they feel like wearing a cloud.

4. Fun2Fun Danika Split Neck Beaded Blouse, $54
This top was the surprise of the box! I really didn't expect to like this off the bat. It looked a little boxy, but once I put it on, I kind of loved it! I could dress it up, dress it down, wear it with the cloud-like leggings... 

5. Everly Sherm Dress, $58
This dress is so gorgeous, and I already have another gorgeous dress by Everly, but the top is just too darn big. Like, gaping because it's so darn big. Maybe a size smaller, and it would be perfection, but this one just doesn't work. 

So, what do keep? Return? Help!

    1. I'm with you, lady! It's so pretty, but it's SO big on top! If I turned sideways, my whole bra was showing! Not. Good!

  2. I am quite positive I have the same dress, just a different print! It is the perfect dress to spin around in:) It looks great on you, but maybe the smaller size would work!

    1. It is the PERFECT spinning dress, Elena! I'm going to ask if they have a smaller one I can exchange it for!

  3. I love the Fun2Fun shirt; it complements your dark hair really well! Also, you should buy the leggings! If you love them that much, then pretty soon you won't even remember how much they cost. Life's too short not to have things that you love!

  4. The leggings Mrs. Putt. Who wouldn't want to be wearing a cloud? AND the beaded blouse, because you deserve to feel good and look good (:
