Having your own personal stylist isn’t just for the rich and famous. Sign up for Stitch Fix and get real style advice for real people.
It’s Stitch Fix time again! I don’t shop much beyond groceries and crafty things these days so it’s fun to get this box in the mail. What I like best is that you can pick how frequently they arrive from as frequently as once a month to as little as only when you ask for one. Right now I am thinking every other month may suit me. For more details on Stitch Fix and how it works, check out my post from December 2014. Otherwise, let’s dig in!
Side note: Stick through the entire post and you’ll also get a chance for a free month of another fun fashion service – Rocksbox.
1. Collective Concepts Esten Button-Up Sleeveless Blouse / XS / $54: While I am not normally much of a pink wearer, I do own a similar color/style shirt that is past it’s prime and could use an update. It does wrinkle easily, as you can see in the next photo, after only a couple of minutes being tucked into the skirt. MAYBE. Final decision: Kept, time to trade in the older one.
2. Gilli Kelsey Skirt / S / $54: I enjoy the texture and print of this skirt. So much so that I already own a very similar skirt, except mine fits more like a pencil skirt which I prefer. RETURN.
3. Kut From The Kloth Denny Knit Pant / 4 / $68: I have a serious weakness for skinny jeans, especially soft, comfortable ones. However I already own a pair of black skinny jeans and do not need another. While this pair is slightly more comfortable than mine, they were crazy long and had to roll them up. (Admittedly I do roll my pants on purpose sometimes but I still don’t need a second pair.) RETURN.
4. Urban Expressions Adelade Woven Fold-Over Clutch / $48: I don’t usually trade out purses based on my outfits/seasons, instead I tend to use the same purse until it falls apart. But I do like to downsize when it’s for a special event like a wedding or a night out where I don’t want to deal with a bulkier bag. This woven fold-over clutch it a great size, color, and versatile. But $48? MAYBE. Final decision: It’s pricey but gosh it’s pretty and multi functional so I splurged.
5. 41Hawthorne Jace Abstract Chevron Print Dress / S / $68: In case you were unaware I love purple, so this dress was the first thing I noticed in my box. It also happens to look really cute paired with a belt and a blazer (which I failed to get a picture of). I also like that the chevron print has a print within itself. Inception prints! KEEPER.

Anything you think I should or should not keep?
BONUS TIME: All the jewelry (except the belt) were part of my Rocksbox this month, which is a similar service exclusively for jewelry. I’ve been having fun enjoying my first month for free as you can see in a few of my Instagram & Twitter posts (1 / 2 / 3). If you are interested in trying out Rocksbox, I have one free month to share with 3 lucky readers which I will randomly select on Friday. Just leave a comment on this post with your Valentine’s Day plans – Cooking? Going out? Having a girls night? Tell me and that will count as your entry. Of course you’re welcome to also follow me on Facebook / Twitter / Instagram / Google+ but it will not increase your odds at winning. But you will win my love ;-). CLOSED
Disclosure: This is not a sponsored post! I pay for these clothes on my own. However, this post does provide referral links for new sign ups which gives me a little credit to go towards my next box.
