April 2019 Stitch Fix Review

April is almost over, well like in 8 days. This month I had a Stitch Fix and now have time to review it.

Here is how Stitch Fix 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.

I always get feedback from my husband and two friends through text.

Here is what I got:

Everything is Stitch Fix except the shorts. Those are mine, they are my favorite and I have had them since 2003. Oh and I took these pictures on a Friday night after work which is why my hair looks like this mess.

Market & Spruce Ezide Textured Print Top $58

IMG_20190405_193432352 (1)

This top is cute and it fit great. It was really comfy too. My friends loved this top. However, I sent it back. The back of the shirt was pretty sheer so I couldn’t really wear it without a cardigan or something and since I live in Houston, I don’t really want layers in the summertime.

Skies are Blue Asa Striped Ponte Blazer $78

IMG_20190405_193501873 (1)

This is a cute blazer and would look cute with a pair of skinny jeans. My husband really liked this blazer while my friends did not. I returned it because while I liked it, I am not a blazer person. I think it would just end up hanging in my closet all day.

Colette Romey Cold Shoulder Knit Top $34

IMG_20190405_193353488 (1)

The fabric was really soft but it was really short. The sides of the shirt go to right where my waistband is and I really hate short shirts. I also do not really like cold shoulder tops. Also, it looks like I am not wearing this top correctly but I swear I am. Therefore, I sent it back.

French Grey Troian Brushed Knit Dress $48

IMG_20190405_193109729 (1)

Everyone loved it including me. This was a winner. The fabric is to die for soft. The pattern is cute and I like the colors. I have already worn it to a baby shower. It fits great and it is really comfortable too. Highly recommend this dress.

Kidbox Winter 2018 Review

I did not mean to get a Kidbox right now. My son has a lot of clothes and he is in the middle of transitioning between sizes. However, I was out-of-town when I got the e-mail and when I got home and remembered to say “skip” it was too late. It did workout though because winter came early and we realized we hardly have any long-sleeves.

Here is how it works:

  1. Go to the website and fill out a style survey. They ask for things such as colors to avoid, what do you need more of, what will they not wear, their style.
  2. They only ship out 5 times a year but you can skip a season if you would like.
  3. Review the box. You have 7 days before you are billed. If you keep everything, it is $98. If you keep only a few pieces, they offer it at a discount.
  4. Ship back what you do not want.
  5. If you kept it all, pick a charity you want Kidbox to donate clothes to.

We did not keep the whole box because we only needed a few pieces.  Here is what we got:

IMG_20181119_194431745 (1)

IMG_20181119_193800472 (2)

  1. Adidas Long Sleeve $17

We kept this shirt because we need more long sleeve shirts. We liked that it was not white and he does play soccer.

2. Puma 2 Piece Hoodie and Pant Set $42

This set was cute but the pants looked huge. Also, my son is sort of a nudist so getting him to wear a hoodie takes a miracle. He has even had to miss recess a few times for it. So we returned it.

3. Flapdoodles Boys Raglan Tee $13

It is long sleeves, soft and blue so we kept. Blue shirts really make my sons eyes pop.

4. Miki B Boys Camo Joggers $26

I hate camo, I really do. Plus these felt almost like PJ material so back they went.

5. Nanette Batman Tee $12

My son loves Batman but this went back because of the T-shirt problem. Plus I could always get him a Batman shirt later on at Target or Old Navy.

6. Paper Demin and Cloth Boys Jean $33

These went back as we did not need any jeans currently.

7. Reebox Boys Tee $17

Again, short sleeve so it went back.

The area we live in does not get cold often or for too long but our son only had like 5 long-sleeved shirts and I was sick of washing them constantly so I was only looking for long sleeves.

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:

IMG_20181008_113919739 (1)

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

IMG_20181005_195954944 (1)

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)

IMG_20181005_200055712 (1)

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)

IMG_20181005_200137247 (1)

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)

IMG_20181005_200319357 (1)

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.

Kidbox Back to School 2018 Review

My husband and I decided to get my son another Kidbox with his next size up. Not that he is there yet but it will be nice to have once he gets there.

Here is how it works:

  1. Go to the website and fill out a style survey. They ask for things such as colors to avoid, what do you need more of, what will they not wear, their style.
  2. They only ship out 5 times a year but you can skip a season if you would like.
  3. Review the box. You have 7 days before you are billed. If you keep everything, it is $98. If you keep only a few pieces, they offer it at a discount.
  4. Ship back what you do not want.
  5. If you kept it all, pick a charity you want Kidbox to donate clothes to.

In this box we also got a water bottle and a coupon. Kidbox has another box called Kidsentials  and they are $30/box which gives you socks and underwear. The coupon is to try is for $15. We will probably try it but his next size. We signed him for the sporty style box.

IMG_20180807_195257846

  1. Adidas Boys Logo Tee $20, their price $15
  2. Lee Color Block Raglan Short Sleeve $33, their price $25
  3. DKNY Boys Subway Raglan Tee $18, their price $14
  4. Puma Boys Color Block Fleece $34, their price $26
  5. Puma Boys French Terry Jogger $36, their price $27
  6. Lee Boys Slim Fit Stretch Denim Jean $36, their price $27
  7. Reebox Boys 3PC Set $66, their price $50

So all the prices come to $243 or $184 their price. However, if you keep everything it is only $98.

We like almost everything in this box. The Puma sweatshirt is not my favorite but my son will not wear coats but will wear a sweatshirt so it will work for his school cubby. I do wish there was maybe one long-sleeve top but our winter was so nice last year that this year will probably be terrible(meaning really warm) and we might not really need any this year.

July 2018 Stitch Fix Review

Last week I got my Stitch Fix. I didn’t have time to try them on until the day they were due. 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.

Here is what I got:

IMG_20180716_080007916

My letter from my stylists

Market & Spruce Elody Embroidered Detail Dress ($68)

IMG_20180713_132726173

This dress was cute and has small cutouts on the top. One of my friends did not like the dress because she thought it felt too 95-97 with the daisy fad. I didn’t like how high the armpit holes were. I couldn’t see myself being comfortable wearing this all day so back it went.

Alice Blue Simona Henley Blouse ($36) and Kut From the Kloth Kristi Frayed Boyfriend Jeans ($88)

IMG_20180713_132937538

I love Kut from the Kloth jeans so I knew this pair would be a winner. I needed a new paid of capri’s for when school starts back up. These fit so well and makes me look slimmer. The blouse was cute but had no stretch to it which I like my shirts to have some stretch to them. So the blouse went back.

Your Story Bowman Lace Detail Top ($44) and same jeans

IMG_20180713_133023975

One of my friends really liked this top, my husband thought it was okay and I though my meh so it went back.

Threads 4 Thought Ade Colorblock Legging ($74) and top from above

IMG_20180713_133202919

Now this outfit is a winner! Just kidding, I just didn’t feel like finding a top. These leggings were so soft and comfy. However, they are see-through and not squat proof. If I am going to pay $74 for leggings, they better not show anything!!

Summer 2018 Kidbox

I decided to get my son another Kidbox, one for summer. My son is starting to outgrow his 2T clothes so I was interested in what we would get.

Here is how it works:

  1. Go to the website and fill out a style survey. They ask for things such as colors to avoid, what do you need more of, what will they not wear, their style.
  2. They only ship out 5 times a year but you can skip a season if you would like.
  3. Review the box. You have 7 days before you are billed. If you keep everything, it is $98. If you keep only a few pieces, they offer it at a discount.
  4. Ship back what you do not want.
  5. If you kept it all, pick a charity you want Kidbox to donate clothes to.

So I thought I took a picture of the clothes but I didn’t and now I am too lazy to go get them out of his dresses.

IMG_20180601_105836830

So here is my “bill.” You can see the retail price and their discount. So if you keep everything, it costs only $98. We loved almost everything we got this month except the ECKO clothes. They seem huge. The Puma 2 piece is adorable as are the two shirts from Appaman and Andy + Evan. The Reebox shorts are also nice. My son is very active and during the school year he plays soccer and takes a yoga class.

We are always happy with the whole Kidbox process. Want to try it? Go here.

May 2018 Stitch Fix Review

This month I got a new stylists that I have not worked with before. I guess I forgot to request the same ones but this one was really good too that I have already requested her again. I also made not that I was looking for something in a cobalt blue for my sororities convention. But they didn’t have anything that would fit the criteria.

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.

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:

IMG_20180506_194552143

Romolo Roshina Station Ball necklace $34 (returned)

IMG_20180506_194612757

I love silver jewelry but this piece was way too long for my liking. It would look super cute on other people I tend to like short delicate necklaces.

Studio Blue Freya Skinny Jean $58 (return) and Mix by 41Hawthorn Jessa Essential Knit Tee $32 (return)

IMG_20180506_195019718

The stylists recommended these pants because I have bought bright colors before. However, I do not like light purple. It just makes me look gross. Plus these pants are like a half-size too small. The shirt was comfy but nothing special to spend the money on. It is also in the high 90s now so I would not get to wear it until next January.

Le Lisn Juri 2fer Maxi Dress $74 (kept)

I love this dress. The skirt part is very light weight and has slits and the just the right amount of sass. The only draw back? My horrible year around tan line. The stress was really comfy though and I can wear it year round here.

Wisp Leeah Lace Knit Dress $68 (kept)

IMG_20180506_195615303

Another winner. This will be perfect for convention. I think it takes some weight off of me which is always a plus.

So I spent more than I wanted to this month but I did get 2 dresses I really like. Want to try Stitch Fix for yourself? Go here

Stitch Fix March 2018 Review

I received my 28th Stitch Fix yesterday. So I quickly took some pictures. I really have no idea what I am going to keep.

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.

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:

My stylist I had in January was on vacation so I got a new stylist again. I also get advice from my husband and two friends through group messenger.

IMG_20180314_185458989

Nine West Speak Up Satin Printed Flats $69

IMG_20180314_185413918

I am a sucker for flats, especially pretty flats. These would look cute with jeans and a simple shirt or like black pants with a solid top. My problem is the price as I am on a budget for the time being. So I am undecided.

French Grey Gerarda Ruffle Hem Brushed Knit Dress $54

IMG_20180314_185341607

This dress is a little heavy but really soft and comfy. My problem, it is a little too short. So from the front, it looks fine, in the back though, the ruffles are on my butt. My husband liked this one the best and didn’t think it looked too short. My friends liked the dress too but haven’t seen it in person.

41 Hawthorn Dabit Sheer Detail Blouse $54 and Liverpool Annemarie Skinny Jean $78

IMG_20180314_185203176

Don’t like the blouse. The color looks gross on me and there is a gap in the buttons where my bust is. So it is definitely no. My friends were not a fan of the grey jeans, but my husband really likes them. So again, not sure.

Skies are Blue Mishella Lace Yoke Knit Top $58 and same jeans

IMG_20180314_185113504

My friends all like this top but I am unsure. The shirt color and lace color just don’t seem like they go together but you can’t tell by this picture.

So I am not sure what to keep this time and what to send back. I have a couple of days to decide.

Kidbox Spring 2018 Review

A couple of weeks ago, I got an e-mail about if I want to order a spring Kidbox for my son. I haven’t ordered him a box in some time now and he is starting to change sizes so I thought it might be perfect time to order him a box. In reality, I probably should have skipped it because I am getting all my fun hospital bills but its only money, right?? Oh, I am being completely facetious with that last comment.

Here is how it works:

  1. Go to the website and fill out a style survey. They ask for things such as colors to avoid, what do you need more of, what will they not wear, their style.
  2. They only ship out 5 times a year but you can skip a season if you would like.
  3. Review the box. You have 7 days before you are billed. If you keep everything, it is $98. If you keep only a few pieces, they offer it at a discount.
  4. Ship back what you do not want.
  5. If you kept it all, pick a charity you want Kidbox to donate clothes to.

The information card

 

IMG_20180307_193352241

  1. Puma Boys 2 Piece Top and Short Set $42, their price $32

I love this set. My son is pretty active and involved in sports. He plays soccer, swims, just started yoga and loves to trail run so this is perfect for him.

2. DKNY Boys 3 Piece Set $66, their price $50

The set is a jacket, jeans and short sleeve. My son does like layers so we will not be wearing the jacket most likely.

3. ART+EDEN Boys graphic tee $29, their price $22.

My son loves dinosaurs so this is a win.

4. U.S. Polo Assn. Boys Short Sleeve Stripe Shirt $18, their price $13.

Cute button up shirt.

The little giraffe stuffed animal, I think came from the box, otherwise I have no idea where it came from.

IMG_20180307_193313339

  1. This is the back of the DKNY outfit.

2. U.S Polo Assn. Boys Twill Short with belt $24, their price $17

We wear shorts like 10 months out of the year so these are perfect.

3. Puma Boys Performance Tee $22, their price $17.

Another great short but my athletic kid.

 

Total came to $201 but their box is only $98. For some reason, I had a discount which made my total to $78.40. I don’t know how I got a discount but I will keep it. Want to try Kidbox? Go here.

 

January 2018 Stitch Fix Review

So I got my Stitch Fix on a Friday, it was supposed to be returned and I hadn’t tried on the clothes yet and then I had surgery. Luckily, the company is great and gave me a couple of weeks to try them on. So I waited until I felt comfortable trying on clothes.

Anyway, here is how it works if you are new:

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.

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:

I have a new stylist this month which sometimes means you are starting from scratch but I think my new stylists did a pretty good job.

IMG_20180125_053630094

Vigross Erika Skinny Jean ($68) & Pixley Axel Colorblock Mesh Insert Pullover ($58)

IMG_20180124_193256668

Sorry the picture is blurry, my son was attacking my photographer. The top is a light sweater with a purple triangle at the neckline and a purple stripe down both arms. Not really my color choice or design. The jeans are comfy but seem tight. It could be that they are too small or I am still bloated from my surgery. I really don’t want to keep them though and it be that they are just too small.

Kaileigh Katinka Knit Dress ($48)

IMG_20180124_193732389

This dress is really comfy and my husband loves this dress. However, I am not a fan of the bell sleeves.  Not sure if I can get past it.

IMG_20180124_193435752IMG_20180124_193429045

Same jeans and Truly Poppy Jarred Lace Detail Cap-Sleeve Blouse ($58)

I love this shirt and so do my two friends who I sent these pictures to. My son did not as he said “Oh no, holes!” That is style advice from a toddler. I believe this top will be a keeper. I like that is has some sexiness without being trashy and still modest.

Mix by 41 Hawthorn Abrianna Longsleeve Knit Cardigan ($38) and the same jeans and black top.

IMG_20180124_193612363

First, I love the color. While I own a lot of cardigans, I do not own any this vibrant shade of purple which is labeled as Jewel Tone Purple. I love cardigans as a teacher because I can put on some simple pants, a tank and wear a cardigan for an easy but put together outfit.

 

So comment below on what I should keep.
