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!

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.

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.

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?

Get ready for your bi-monthly installment of awkward Erin photos! Aka showing you what I got in my latest Stitch Fix while trying not to feel self conscious. I purposely cut my head off every photo because you don’t need to see the expressions I am making haha. Not familiar with Stitch Fix? In short it is like have a virtual stylist who picks out clothing based on your preferences and feedback. You can have fixes sent to you at various frequencies and I have been sticking with every other month because it works better with my budget. For more details on Stitch Fix and how it works, check out my post from December 2014.

November 2015 Stitch Fix 1


This month I was yearning for thick warm sweaters and some fun pieces for fall. Sonjya was my stylist this month and she pulled some great pieces inspired by my Pinterest board. Let’s see what I got…

It’s Stitch Fix time again! I know I said I signed up for fixes every other month and I already had a fix in August but I had to switch around my months because I will be moving in December and don’t want it lost in transit! So September/November/etc it is! For more details on Stitch Fix and how it works, check out my post from December 2014.

This month I actually had a few requests: emerald green skinny jeans, olive army vest, sweater, and maybe a floral or flannel top. Just to see if I could pull them off. Let’s see how it went…


P.S. I didn’t have my designated paparazzi this time so pardon my subpar photos of my outfits. I did my best with what I had!

It’s Stitch Fix time! This month I was more excited than usual because the amazingly awesome Hayley (Domestic Rebel) was my stylist! I was so excited to hear that she is one of their stylists now and made sure to request her for my next fix. Easy peasy!

It’s been 2 months since my last Stitch Fix which means a new box has arrived! I signed up for fixes to arrive every other month since it fit better with my needs and budget but you can adjust as you prefer to twice a month, every month or only get them when you request, even if it’s only once a year. Once a fix arrives, you have 3 days to try it all on and if you keep all 5 items you get 25% off! For more details on Stitch Fix and how it works, check out my post from December 2014.

June 2015 Stitch Fix 1


The great thing about this fix is that it arrived just in time before I head off to the west coast. I’m heading to LA for my nephew Griffin’s 1st birthday and then to San Juan off the coast of Seattle with my childhood friends celebrating our collective 30th birthdays. So let’s see what my stylist, Lana, sent me!

Side note: Other than the necklace I received in this fix, the jewelry I am wearing (Loren Hope palmer necklace, House of Harlow 1960 thin arrow bangles, Gorjana azra studs) from Rocksbox which is similar to Stitch Fix but it is strictly for jewelry. Want to try it out? For a free month (no strings attached for real) use code: ERINBFF367.
