Review of Stitch Fix #12

Stitch Fix Review - Mavi Kalie Bleached Denim Jacket & Level 99 Lillian Distressed Crop Skinny JeanThis latest box of goodies means I’ve officially been Stitch Fixin’ for a year! There were a few duds in there, but by and large I’ve been SO pleased with each fix—seeing that box waiting for me at my apartment is like Christmas morning every time! My latest delivery was no different. I’m absolutely obsessed with the three items I kept, so cue the faux fashion blogging and basic betch slang words …

Sweet Grey Zachary T-Shirt Dress $68 = KEEPER

YASSSS. (I told you there would be basic betch slang words involved.) I’ve worn this dress like 17 times already. It can easily be dressed up or down, is comfortable, flattering, my favorite color—I just love it. Stitch Fix Review - Sweet Grey Zachary T-Shirt DressStitch Fix Review - Sweet Grey Zachary T-Shirt Dress &  Mavi Kalie Bleached Denim Jacket Stitch Fix Review - Sweet Grey Zachary T-Shirt Dress

Mavi Kalie Bleached Denim Jacket $98 = KEEPER

I requested a denim jacket in this fix (for all you SF newbies, each month you can send your stylist a note requesting items or styles you want/need), and my girl Layla did not disappoint. I like that the denim is thin enough so that I can roll the sleeves, and the size makes it perfect for wearing on its own or over a hoodie. Stitch Fix Review - Sweet Grey Zachary T-Shirt Dress &  Mavi Kalie Bleached Denim Jacket Stitch Fix Review - Mavi Kalie Bleached Denim Jacket & Level 99 Lillian Distressed Crop Skinny Jean Stitch Fix Review - Mavi Kalie Bleached Denim Jacket & Level 99 Lillian Distressed Crop Skinny Jean

Level 99 Lillian Distressed Crop Skinny Jean $98 = KEEPER

I also requested some white skinny jeans in this fix because the pair I currently own is completely stained (pretty standard—I don’t realize what a slob I am until I eat a meal while wearing white clothing). The fit of these is perfection, and while I’m not crazy about the hem on the crop (it’s a little wide rather than tapering as the ankle slims), cuffing them is a simple fix for that. Stitch Fix Review - Mavi Kalie Bleached Denim Jacket & Level 99 Lillian Distressed Crop Skinny Jean Stitch Fix Review - Level 99 Lillian Distressed Crop Skinny Jean Stitch Fix Review - Level 99 Lillian Distressed Crop Skinny Jean Stitch Fix Review - Mavi Kalie Bleached Denim Jacket & Level 99 Lillian Distressed Crop Skinny Jean Stitch Fix Review - Level 99 Lillian Distressed Crop Skinny Jean

Tart Zera Lace Bomber Jacket $108 = RETURN

stitch-fix-lace-jacketI wanted to like this jacket so, so bad. When I held it up, I was like “hell yes!” and then when I tried it on I was like “dangit.” It’s just a little too big for how I’d like to wear it. I envisioned pairing it with a tight crop top and distressed high-waist jean shorts or as a cover up on cool nights over a casual summer dress. If I were to layer a hoodie underneath it, it’d be the perfect size, but otherwise it’s just a bit too shapeless. Super cute though!

Loveappella Kellyton Mesh Shoulder Top $48 = RETURN

Stitch Fix ReviewThis top is cute and the material is ridiculously comfy, but I already have a few similar shirts. I love the sheer top with a sort of cap sleeve, but the horizontal hem at the top of the chest is never a flattering look for my girls.

This latest fix got me so excited, I switched my shipment frequency from every other month to every month–so I’ll have another post for you later in August (hopefully with a bunch more cute stuff!). If you’re new to the Stitch Fix game, you can check out the first post I did about the styling subscription service.

And I’ll leave you with a sneak peek of September’s cover of Vogue … Stitch Fix Review - Sweet Grey Zachary T-Shirt Dress &  Mavi Kalie Bleached Denim Jacket

Happy 4th of July! (+eShakti Reader Discount)

red, white & blue 4th of July outfitWoop! One of my favorite weekends of the year is here! After I’m finished teaching this morning, I think Joe and I are going to drive down to Newport for the weekend. We’re really good at changing our minds last minute though, so who knows where we’ll end up. :)

red, white & blue 4th of July outfitI recently got a chance to try out eShakti, women’s online retailer that allows you to customize your clothing orders. Instead of just selecting a size, you enter your measurements, hem length preferences, style preferences, etc. and they’ll design your custom item specifically for you. I thought this skirt would be fun for summertime, and opted for a knee length so that I could pair it with a crop top (I suppose I’m too old to pull off a crop top with a mini skirt–gotta pick one or the other haha).

The check out and customization process was super easy, and my skirt fit perfectly when it arrived. I loved my experience with eShakti and am excited to be able to offer you all 10% off an order with them!

eShakti Discount Code for P&I Readers

Get 10% off any order at eShakti using the code pumpsandiron. Valid through 7/30/15. Happy shopping!

Stitch Fix Review (Fix #10)

Stitch Fix Review - Alessia SkirtI told myself that once I ran out of Stitch Fix credit (which I did), I would be pickier about what I kept and would only get fixes every other month. So what did I do? Scheduled a fix immediately and keep everything in it. Damnit, Nicole.

Juno Small Folded Clutch by Street Level ($38)

I think this will get a lot of use come wedding season. It’s small; the gold color will match any outfit if I’m wearing gold jewelry; and the delicate chain strap makes it fancy enough to be worn with a dress. Stitch Fix Review - Juno Small Folded Clutch &  Lennon Top Stitch Fix Review - Juno Small Folded Clutch &  Lennon Top

OUTFIT DETAILS | top: Stitch Fix // jeans: Stitch Fix (from this previous fix) // bag: Stitch Fix // necklace: c/o Francesca’s // shoes: Kork-Ease // sunglasses: c/o ICU Eyewear

Alessia Skirt by Eight Sixty ($84)

I’m a sucker for unique pieces like this. I love the longer length mesh over the short lining—so fun! It’s actually a very feminine skirt, but for some reason I decided to pair it with an 80’s-inspired muscle crop and go a little more rock ‘n roll with it. It kinda works/I kinda look crazy, but I’m into it. Stitch Fix Review - Alessia Skirt Stitch Fix Review - Alessia Skirt Stitch Fix Review - Alessia Skirt Stitch Fix Review - Alessia Skirt

Linden Sheer Detail Sleeveless Blouse by Pixley ($54)

This will be a great wardrobe staple. A black, button-up blouse is something I can wear all the time and the sheer detail gives it a little personality. I also love the material—soft and light. Stitch Fix Review - Linden Sheer Detail Sleeveless Blouse Stitch Fix Review - Linden Sheer Detail Sleeveless Blouse Stitch Fix Review - Linden Sheer Detail Sleeveless Blouse Stitch Fix Review - Linden Sheer Detail Sleeveless Blouse

Deena Crochet Back Blouse by Daniel Rainn ($68)

Keeping this top was a no-brainer. Bright, colorful print and a crochet back—so perfect for the warmer months! Stitch Fix Review - Deena Crochet Back Blouse Stitch Fix Review - Deena Crochet Back Blouse Stitch Fix Review - Deena Crochet Back Blouse Stitch Fix Review - Deena Crochet Back Blouse

Lennon Top by Eight Sixty ($58)

The quality of this top sold me—the lining is a heavier, soft material—and the delicate sheer top layer makes it a good option for more formal occasions. Stitch Fix Review - Juno Small Folded Clutch &  Lennon Top Stitch Fix Review - Juno Small Folded Clutch &  Lennon Top Stitch Fix Review - Juno Small Folded Clutch &  Lennon Top

Ok, I’m officially in Stitch Fix time-out after this one. I’ll be back in a few months with another of these posts, but in the meantime, you’ll be enjoying yoga pants and sneakers, my friends. :)
