Stitch Fix Review #2

So everyone, I decided to do Stitch Fix again.. I wanted to give it another try to see if they could open more horizon a little bit. Pretty much, I only buy clothes from Banana Republic, LOFT, and Nordstrom (if they're lucky), so I've been in a rut. Also, someone used my referral ID from my blog (THANK YOU whoever you are!), so I had $25 in clothes credit to use.

Anyways, I linked my Pinterest clothing board to my style profile, and they took my requests to heart. They totally rocked my Fix! So, here's my review of my 2nd Fix. And, just so you all know what life is really like for me, after I tried on all my pretty clothes, took a million pictures, and started blogging, do you know what I look like? I am eating Sloppy Joes with my fingers at my computer desk, wearing old Wal-Mart green pajama capris with my BYU sweatshirt, trying to type while Carter watches Cars downstairs (don't judge--the kid loves the line "turn your lights on, your moron!" Oh, and at least we've weaned him off Talladega Nights), AND my pajama pants are now stained by Sloppy Joes. Classy.
Warning: a majority of these pictures are selfies taken with my iPhone in my bathroom. Honestly, they're better than my freaking webcam, which is terrible. Until Carter grows up and learns how to use my Canon Rebel, this is all I can get. And, can I just say how easy iCloud makes transferring photos from my phone onto my blog/computer? Amazing.

Here are my box contents. 1 skirt, 2 blouses, 1 blazer, and 1 silver statement necklace. Not too much color, but I can easily add color (aka, my cardigan collection).

Outfit #1: 41Hawthorn Rectangle Cluster Statement Necklace, as well as the Lasome Jay Houndstooth Printed Skirt (green sweater and blue button-up blouse by Banana Republic)

Verdict: LOVE love love this necklace! Totally me! Skirt--loved it too! It had an elastic waistband, and it wasn't a pencil skirt, but it still worked for me. It didn't give me muffin top at all, which is surprising. Anyways, I'm pretty sure I can easily use both of these pieces in my work and casual wardrobe.

Outfits #2 and 3: Collective Concepts Rilo Arrow Print Shoulder Stud Blouse (ankle pants from Banana Republic and pencil skirt from LOFT)

 I was really trying to show the arrow studs on the shoulder in this one..
I don't have a full-length mirror in the house, so I found Carter's counter stool to make me a little taller and show off my legs outfit.

Verdict: It was a little tight in the arms and chest, but I had to keep it, especially when I saw it with my pencil skirt.

Outfits #4 and 5: Renee C Rossi Polka Dot Print Neck-Tie Blouse (with pants from Banana Republic and skirt from Ann Taylor)

 Showing a back view. Um, these pants are a little tight.. yikes. Why, yes, I do wear bright pink pants to work! I figured after all the crap that happened this summer, I may as well wear happy clothes even if I'm not happy.

I was actually looking for a cream and black shirt to go with this emerald/turquoise pencil skirt, and this top definitely came in handy. It's like they read my mind!

Verdict: Keeper, although, again, it's a little tight in chest/shoulders. However, I do not care. A cream shirt with polka dots and a neck tie? Hellz yes. Ok, so maybe that statement isn't really me, but the shirt is.

Outfit #6: 41Hawthorn Toshi Contrast Detail Blazer
 I wish these pictures could fully illustrate my discomfort! I'm only smiling because I'm laughing.
Where's Chris Farley when you need him? "Fat guy in a little coat..." Also, in this last picture, that is not an eyebrow piercing, but actually dirt on my mirror. I included it for humor's sake.

Verdict: Pass, although I wish I could keep it. Blazers are good in theory, but for a girl like me with broad shoulders, bigger arms, and a full ribcage and chest, they don't often work.

In summary, this was an awesome Stitch Fix. My wallet will have to take a break for a while, but I will be back! Oh, and don't forget, if you want to try Stitch Fix, use my referral link.

You got some great stuff! I totally love the necklace! And the polka dot blouse. You have some really cute color neutrals to pair with all of that stuff too. Glad it was another success!
PS-Totally did a double take at first on that last picture thinking I spotted an eyebrow piercing. Haha!

Looks great! There's also a great personal styling service Tog and Porter that I use. They do. one on one styling via video chat and then send you your box. They don't charge for styling time, only what you keep. Almost too good to be true. I don't know what I would do without them
