Stitch Fix

Wait a minute, didn’t I already share a Stitch Fix post this month? Didn’t I say that for my budget I only get fixes every other month? Well I broke my own rules and got another box this month because I wanted to take another stab at getting a holiday dress. So this month I have a second fix, #20!

December 2016 Stitch Fix #19

Who has time to shop in person these days? Thankfully there are people that will do it for you like the stylists at Stitch Fix.

Stitch Fix

This month is my 19th Stitch Fix! I requested a black puffer coat, long warm sweaters to go with leggings, a fitted waist dress with a print (that wasn’t stripes), and any tops that had fun details (such as aztec prints, leather, shoulder details, etc. basically anything that wasn’t lace or crochet). Let’s see what I got!

Alrighy folks, it’s time for my October Stitch Fix! This month, I asked for olive or rust color moto jeggings, an oversized sweater or something with shoulder details, a long sleeve dark (but not black) dress, and just fall attire in general. So let’s dig in.

August 2016 Stitch Fix #17

I don’t have time to shop so I let the stylists at Stitch Fix do the work for me.

Stitch Fix

Time for your bi-monthly installment of headless photos of me. June’s Stitch Fix was the first time I kept all 5 items and I had high expectations for this month’s, especially since I had Christine again who is the same as June, hooray!

June 2016 Stitch Fix #16

Remember when I almost cancelled Stitch Fix? Talk about a 180 as I almost kept all 5 items this time around!

Stitch Fix

After 2 failed attempts in April are you surprised to see another Stitch Fix post? Not gonna lie, I nearly cancelled after all that. Granted, I did have very pleasant interactions with their staff in regards to my displeasure so before cancelling I decided to give them one last chance – fixes #1-13 were just dandy so maybe it was just a fluke. If not then at least I tried.

For fix #16, Christine actually checked out my blog, recipes in addition to stitch fix reviews, and I think it really helped! And she definitely listened to the feedback I gave in my previous fixes. Spoiler alert: this fix won me back and tempted me to keep it all for the first time ever. Let’s check it out shall we?

April 2016 Stitch Fix #15

Skip the mall, finding a parking spot, and waiting in line. Get a personal stylist from Stitch Fix and let them pick out 5 items tailored specifically to you – shipped right to your door!

Stitch Fix

Remember when I posted about my least favorite Stitch Fix 2 weeks ago? Well the awesome people over at Stitch Fix granted me a redo and even refunded my $20 styling fee so it’s as if it never happened! I tried to be as painfully specific as possible in my note to my stylist this time and made sure my Pinterest board was up to date. I even went though my style survey again just to make sure I covered all my bases. The more info the better, especially since I am kind of particular and already have a lot of items in my closet arsenal.

April 2016 Stitch Fix #15


So let’s try this again, shall we? Pardon the photos as no one was around to help me, so enjoy the humor that is me trying to take these photos in my full length mirror. It reminds me of Myspace photos from back in the day – except my head is cut off cause as usual I’m making strange faces!

April 2016 Stitch Fix #14

Shopping can be a pain in the butt, searching all those racks for particular items you are looking for. Instead, let your own personal stylist with Stitch Fix do all the work and it will be shipped right to your door!

Stitch Fix

AT LAST! My Stitch Fix has arrived! Ever since downgrading from every other month to quarterly in order to stick to my budget I have been patiently waiting for this one to arrive, tried to provide a helpful note to my stylist, and pinned things. The more details you give them both in your notes and your feedback, the better your fixes are supposed to be and I wanted to make sure that every fix counted since I am only getting 4 a year right now.

April 2016 Stitch Fix 1


Now that it’s here you can imagine my excitement. I’ve never not kept at least one item and usually I don’t keep more just because the price tag is too rich, but I was ready to splurge a little because I’ve been doing so well thus far with my budgeting. Prepare yourself… because this was not what I expected…

I am cruel to myself. You see, a few friends and I banned together for a year long spending-limit/savings goal, setting a limit for all personal shopping expenses for the year in an effort to beef up our savings accounts. Thankfully we agreed that travel is not included as I already have my tickets to visit family in LA in a few weeks. However, here I am with my latest Stitch Fix, wishing I remembered to reduce the frequency of their arrival! You can have fixes sent to you at various frequencies and I have been sticking with every other month because it worked better with my budget, but I think I am going to reduce to every 3 months. For more details on Stitch Fix and how it works, check out my post from December 2014.

January 2016 Stitch Fix #13


Since the fix is here in my arms, I figured I may as well let myself take away one item since I can apply the $20 styling fee towards anything I keep. Otherwise, I’d have to kiss it goodbye and mark it off from my total allowed for the year – no bueno. So let’s see which piece is the winner shall we?
