October 2018 Stitch Fix Review

Last week I got my Stitch Fix. The photos are horrible quality and weird angles. My husband was lying down and refused to get up. I would have redone them but I was done for the night. I always ask my husband for his opinions and then I text the pictures to two of my very honest friends for their opinions too.

If you are new to Stitch Fix, this is how it works:

1. Fill out your Style Profile. This gives detail on your style, sizes, budget and anything else like a link to your pinterest board.

2. Once you have “ordered” your box, they will send you 5 items from a personal stylists.  It is a $20 styling fee which is applied as a credit toward anything you keep. I actually have a Style Pass(I have no idea how I got it) which means I pay $49 for the whole year instead and I get a one-time $49 credit.

3. Try everything on. They send you Style Cards with recommendations on how to wear your outfit.  You have three days to decide what you do and do not want.

4. Buy what you like and return the rest. If you keep all 5 items, you get 25% off your entire purchase.  Don’t like something, they send you a pre-paid mailing bag to drop in the mailbox.  It is free shipping.

Here is what I got:

Papermoon Larie Crew Neck Blouse ($44) and Democracy Kathryn Bootcut Jean ($68)

I kept the blouse. I thought it would be a nice top for teaching that I could wear with jeans but also professional pants. The jeans fit great but when I unbuttoned them, the zipper automatically went down. If I am paying $68 for jeans then I want them to be really sturdy.

Same jeans and Papermoon Ampton Back Detail Knit Top ($34)

This top was so soft and was almost a keep. My two reasons for not keeping it: not a fan of olive colors and thought the blouse was more professional. I had decided to only keep one item even before I opened the box because I am trying to spend less money and put more into savings. You know, being adult and all.

Same jeans and top from above and Just USA Starling Denim Jacket ($68)

First, the jacket would not button on me so fit was a no go. Second, not a fan of denim jackets. I don’t think I have ever owned a denim jacket and I am not going to start now. For the people who love denim jackets, good for you and I am sure they look fab on you, just not a fan for myself.

Market & Spruce Britta T-shirt Dress ($64)

This was almost a win too. I love t-shirt dresses. However, not a fan of the price. My friend also did not like the neckline and sleeve detail. I also own a lot of striped items so maybe if this was different print or even colors because most of my striped items are black/white or white/navy.

Foodstirs August 2018 Review

It’s been a month. Let’s just get started on a Foodstirs review. We actually did this one a few weeks ago but yeah. So every two months we get a FoodStirs box. Foodstirs is a baking subscription box and if you are on the plan, they send you a box every other month. August was a summer theme box. They include everything you need for the dry ingredients. They also include the decorations. I just needed to provide the eggs, butter, and water.

This month was a boat themed caramel brownies. Please excuse the messy table, we had all of our brownies ingredients out. This one was pretty easy and I liked baking the brownies in cupcake cups instead of a brownie pan, that way your kid gets their own already portioned brownie. Plus you put a piece of caramel candy in the middle. This one needed a lot of parent help especially if your kid is really young. I had to poke holes for the flag and tape the bowl. My son really had fun though and couldn’t wait to show his dad what we made.IMG_20180923_190039201 (2)
