That One Time I Shot a Promo Video for Stitch Fix! (+special offer details!)

If we’re Facebook friends, you may have seen that in September I shot a video for Stitch Fix (in front of the camera, not behind!) So I thought I’d share a little bit more about how that came about and what it was like. Also at the end of this post, I have some exciting news for anyone who has been considering trying Stitch Fix, but hasn’t jumped the fence yet ūüėČ

So, how did I end up at Stitch Fix headquarters in front of a camera? I saw a facebook post on our MOPS page. Someone who knows someone at Stitch Fix, asked if anyone in the group had been a Stitch Fix client since 2014 (oddly specific) and was interested in going on camera for a client testimonial. I saw it and thought “Huh. I’ve been a client since 2014, but going on camera? Nah, no thanks.” I hate seeing/hearing myself on video and the whole idea just seemed a bit intimidating/terrifying. So I ignored it and moved on. But then I started getting tagged by several other people in the post telling me I should do it. Peer pressure. I gave in and contacted the person JUST to get more information about it, not to confirm I would do it.

Then I got more details and thought “Ok….why would I pass up this opportunity?…That’s just silly. Suck it up and do it Krystal!” And so, I did (along with 3 other people I don’t know- but we all shot separately).

Prior to the taping, they sent me a questionnaire about my experience with Stitch Fix, and then came up with a “script” using my responses. I was told I’d be reading this script from a teleprompter and wouldn’t have to memorize anything. And that it would be directed, etc. They also gave some recommendations for outfits I should wear (from Stitch Fix of course) and¬† that there would be hair and makeup on site! Thank goodness I didn’t have to be responsible for that lol.

When I arrived, I was extremely nervous but excited at the same time. The “set” for the video was legit…WAY more involved than I had imagined. In my head I thought there’d be like 1 camera, a plain backdrop and a light or 2. Oh no. This was a set that made it looked like I was sitting in a bright and airy living room in an expensive San Francisco studio apartment. I sat on a couch, with props behind me, there were several cameras in addition to the actual teleprompter, lights all around and a crew of about 10-15 people. So…not at all intimidating or anything lol.

I got dressed, had my hair and makeup done and then it was time. Even though they told me beforehand that I didn’t have to memorize anything and I would just be reading from a script, the director instructed me to “read….but don’t sound like you’re reading”. That is so much harder than you think lol. Also, I naturally spoke way too fast the first 2 takes and had to keep slowing down. We did a bunch of takes reading the exact script word-for-word, and then a few where I was allowed to ad-lib a little bit to make it sound more natural, like having a conversation with a friend. Then she asked me some questions that I answered off-the-cuff, and honestly that’s what I felt way more comfortable doing. The scripted stuff felt so awkward, so I’m happy we did that little unscripted Q&A portion.

It was over before I knew it (maybe only 15-20 mins total on camera?) and then they sent me on my way (with some snacks).

Being my own worst critic, I spent the whole car ride home thinking about all the things I could’ve said differently. But out of several takes, I’m SURE they got at least something usable lol. I know it’s just going be a short little clip, edited together with the other client videos.

If you were wondering, I’ve haven’t seen the final video. We were told it was being used as promotion/marketing material for a corporate presentation (but no other specifics were given). I don’t know if I’ll ever see it, but I think I’m okay with that lol. I left with $100 Stitch Fix credit and a fun experience ūüôā

And I’m thankful for the crew member who insisted on making sure I got some photos of me on set, for my memories (and this blog post lol)

Stitch Fix Review #32

Hello Lovelies,

I’m back with Stitch Fix Review #32! I’ve been meaning to get this post together for awhile now but life with 3 kids is crazy, unpredictable and so very exhausting. When I’m most motivated to be in “work mode” and be productive in the office is during the day. But constant interruptions from the kids and activities and snacks and diapers and meltdowns, etc. etc…. makes mommy productivity really difficult. So then I tell myself, “I’ll work on it after bedtime.” But then after bedtime, I’m so stinking exhausted from the day that all I want to do is collapse on the couch. Not keep working.

So there’s my totally unnecessary, long-winded explanation for why I haven’t blogged as much as I’d like to haha.

Now, back to Stitch Fix. (And seriously, I’m so tired right now I’m going to keep it short and sweet…and I apologize in advance for any typos). It’s just one of those seasons of motherhood right now…

Stitch Fix Review #32

 

Item 1: Ashley Off-The-Shoulder Blouse (Q&A) $54

Ashley Off-The-Shoulder Blouse (Q&A) Stitch Fix

Ashley Off-The-Shoulder Blouse (Q&A) Stitch Fix

I almost kept this one because I love the color and the cute sleeves (and it’s not sheer! horray!) HOWEVER, it honestly wasn’t that comfortable for me. It’s all blousey material with just a little stretch in the sleeves., so I felt kind of restricted in it (a bit too tight across the chest). In my note to the stylist for next time I asked for more casual fabrics and if they send another off-the-shoulder top, for it to have more stretch. And I do already have 2 other royal blue blouses.

Oh, and¬†I apologize for the wrinkles on the shirt. It came that way and since I wasn’t keeping it, I didn’t want to risk ironing or steaming ūüėÄ (and also…who has time for that??). Return.

 

Items #2 and #3: Kay Skinny Jean (LIVERPOOL) $88 and Gypsy Studded Gladiator Sandal (REPORT FOOTWEAR) $49

Ashley Off-The-Shoulder Blouse (Q&A) Stitch Fix

Kay Skinny Jean (LIVERPOOL), Gypsy Studded Gladiator Sandal (REPORT FOOTWEAR) Stitch Fix

I asked for light wash denim and casual go-to sandals for the summer. My stylist delivered on both counts here! The jeans are very figure-flattering with a good amount of stretch. Keep. The sandals are casual and comfortable with edgy studs that I didn’t think I was going to like, but once I paired them with different outfits I really started to like the flair that it added to each look. Also keep!

 

Item #4: Larretta Lace Detail Blouse (JELLA C) $38

I was soooo disappointed that this top didn’t work out for me. I love everything about it but the straps just felt too long (making the whole thing hang low on me, which made me uncomfortable). But the color, the fabric, that lace detail on the back…ahhhh I love it! So sad to return this one.

 

Item 5: Arabella Cold Shoulder Tie Detail Dress (FREE HEART) $48

Arabella Cold Shoulder Tie Detail Dress (FREE HEART) Stitch Fix

Arabella Cold Shoulder Tie Detail Dress (FREE HEART) Stitch Fix

I didn’t hate this dress as much as I thought I might lol. I generally do not like shapeless dresses like this on me because I already lack curves and I feel like I just drown in the fabric. Like¬†I’m wearing a potato sack. However, this one really wasn’t all that bad. I like the idea of this dress. It’s hard to tell from the pictures but it’s a very light-wash denim, that was incredibly soft and comfortable! If it weren’t for the cold-shoulder and tie detail, I’d throw a belt around the waist and probably keep it. Alas, I’m not a fan of the cold-shoulder or tie detail on this dress. So I returned it. I’d definitely be willing to give more dresses like this a try though in the future. OH and it had pockets. I do love me some pockets.

 

RECAP: I kept the jeans and the sandals. Returned everything else.

And that’s that folks. Bedtime for me now lol.

Until next time…

 

Stitch Fix Review #31- Spring Fix Take 2!

Welcome to another fun Spring fix from Stitch Fix!¬†I LOVED my¬†last fix¬†and how springy everything was, so I asked my stylist to keep on going with the spring theme (why stop?!)¬†One of my favorite things about this box in particular are the price points! Definitely one of the cheapest fixes I’ve received yet. My wallet approves. Additionally, it’s filled with super cute spring items that were hard to resist. Though I did have to resist¬†some of it. Read on to find out why…

Item 1: Kami Basic Cork Wedge (NINE WEST) $79

Ohhh these shoes. I’ll be honest, at first…I wasn’t thrilled. Only because I’ve been looking for a good neutral¬†wedge sandal. Ya know..like, brown. Boring, I know. But I wanted something I can wear with everything this spring/summer. And these¬†babies are bright blue. Definitely not neutral. But they are stinking ADORABLE. And I loved the pop of color it added to the outfits I tried them on with. So I took it as a challenge¬†to try spicing¬†up my outfits with pops of color in the shoe, instead of elsewhere. Just in this fix alone, they paired well with 2 different outfits (see below). Since I am a big fan of neutrals, I really do have plenty of neutral tops and bottoms in my wardrobe that will work well with them. So….I kept them! ūüėÄ

 

Item 2: Camille Ruffle Sleeve Blouse (NAPEAN SEA RD) $48

This top is super cute and fun & flirty. I love the off-the-shoulder thing and the ruffles (though for some reason it made me feel like a flamenco dancer…). This top screamed “let’s go on vacation to a tropical island and drink cocktails and dance the night away!!”… at least that’s what I heard. Or Miami. This would be a good Miami outfit. HOWEVER…it is way too see-through. I know it’s not as obvious in the pictures, but in person, trust me. You could see my belly-button and the top of my pants a little too well. I just don’t like that look. It’s not lingerie ya know what I mean?? And because of the spaghetti straps and off-the-shoulder-ness, wearing a cami underneath doesn’t really work. ¬†Sigh…. Sorry, rant over. Conclusion: I returned this one.

 

Item 3: Everett Crew Neck Top (PAPERMOON) $34

This has a very “j.Crew” look to it. It’s simple but well structured and I was super impressed with the quality, especially for that price! As I mentioned before, I do love a good neutral. I love that I can pair this top with basically any color jean and add pops of color (in the shoe and/or jewelry). ¬†Bonus, it is NOT see-through ūüėČ KEEP!

 

Item 4: Emmett Crew Neck Blouse (ALICE BLUE) $32

After receiving these cute pink pants in my last fix, I asked for some tops to wear with them and mentioned Navy specifically. So I was happy to receive this one with the tiny little arrow print! I actually ended up¬†exchanging¬†this one because of a slight defect. I disguised it well in these pics but the hemline was really uneven (and not on purpose). I also sized up so it would be a bit longer. Stitch Fix Customer Service is AMAZING and took care of it right away. They stand by their service and quality standards so if something isn’t up to snuff, they’re always willing to make it right. After 31 fixes (155 items), I’ve only had an issue with 2 items. Not bad at all!

 

Item 5: Brittny Tulip Sleeve Knit Top (KAILEIGH) $34

I was a little underwhelmed with this one if I’m being honest. It was just sort of “okay”. Pretty color, love the tulip sleeve detail but I wish the fabric and shape was a bit nicer. I got the feeling that after 1 wash/dry cycle, any shape it did have would be lost. I do admit that I could’ve styled it better here. Since it was such a casual fabric I wanted to go for a more casual look with the distressed denim and chucks. But I think it would’ve looked a lot better with grey jeans or a nice dark blue wash, and some flats. ¬†If I had more time to spend on these photos and posts I’d style everything a few different ways. But ya know…kids. So final verdict on this one: Returned.

RECAP:

  1. Blue sandals: KEEP
  2. Yellow ruffle top: RETURN
  3. Grey striped top: KEEP
  4. Navy arrow print top: KEEP
  5. Pink knit top: RETURN

Stitch Fix Review #30- A Spring Fix!

It’s a Stitch Fix milestone, everyone! The big 3-0. ¬†I was worried this review would never happen. My family was hit with the plague recently (aka the worst cold in the history of colds). Naturally, I got the worst of it and it lasted almost 3 weeks. This past week was by far the worst I’ve felt, and I procrastinated taking pictures of my fix until I could shower and put on a happy face (thankfully Stitch Fix gave me an extension on the return period because their customer service rocks). Anyway. I tried really hard not to look like a hot mess in these photos. I really did.¬†I had just finished a major coughing spell right before we started¬†and it looked like I had been crying for hours. But, the show must go on!

In my¬†last fix I asked for “going out” pieces and I LOVED all the bright, bold colors I received.¬†For this one I decided to switch gears a bit and asked for a “spring refresh” with casual items for spring (and summer). I mentioned colored denim, subtle florals and a neutral wedge sandal in the note to my stylist. I’m pretty pumped about this one. Upon first glance (when I peeked at the items before it arrived)¬†¬†I thought it could be a 5/5. Dangerous.

Stitch Fix Review #30- A Spring Fix!

Item #1: Attica V-Neck Tank Top (ALICE BLUE) $34 and Item #2: Chester Cargo Short (PISTOLA) $68

Stitch Fix #30- A Spring Fix! Attica V-Neck Tank Top, Chester Cargo Short

Stitch Fix #30- A Spring Fix! Attica V-Neck Tank Top, Chester Cargo Short

Let’s start with the top. I ADORE the print. It is exactly the kind of floral top I like and what I asked for. Subtle. I don’t prefer to wear all-over, big, bold floral prints. This one is just perfect. And I’m obsessed with the colors. So very spring-y. The only downside: it shows a bit more skin than I’m normally comfortable with. Nothing crazy or anything. But the spaghetti straps require me to wear a strapless bra which is inconvenient while breastfeeding (but I won’t be breastfeeding forever)¬†and while I don’t mind v-necks, this is¬†a loose-fitting top so I just need to be careful if I bend over lest I spill out (not that there’s much to spill, truth be told!) But it’s nothing a good cami can’t fix! And I found a really pretty one that you’ll see in a minute!

As for the shorts, they come straight off my Pinterest board! They fit perfectly. I love the army green color. I love the cargo style. They go with most everything. Keeper. I love Stitch Fix.

 

Item #3: Adorra Skinny Jean (JUST BLACK) $88

Stitch Fix #30- A Spring Fix! Attica V-Neck Top, Adorra Skinny Jean

Stitch Fix #30- A Spring Fix! Attica V-Neck Top, Adorra Skinny Jean

I kept on the same shirt to wear with the jeans because the colors work well together! And I added a lace extender cami from Grace and Lace¬†because I just got it and really wanted to see how it would look. It’s not the BEST combo with this particular top but it does make it a bit more modest ūüėČ ¬†Anyway, this is about the jeans! Stop distracting me. ¬†I was a little nervous about the pink color. Because let’s just say it…they’re pink pants. But the fit is wonderful and I can wear them with a lot more than I thought I could initially. I’m being brave. I’m being bold. I’m keeping the pink pants!

Stitch Fix #30- A Spring Fix! Attica V-Neck Top, Adorra Skinny Jean

Gorgeous, right?

Almost done!

 

Item #4: Jesslyn Dress (FUN2FUN) $48

 

Stitch Fix #30- A Spring Fix! Jesslyn Dress

Stitch Fix #30- A Spring Fix! Jesslyn Dress

Stitch Fix #30- A Spring Fix! Jesslyn Dress

I’ll be honest. I couldn’t figure out how to wear this dang dress. I think it’s probably because it was a bit too small. But I fiddled and fussed with it¬†for way too long. I couldn’t figure out how far down on my shoulder it was supposed to go, where the ruffle should be placed in relation to my boobs and every time I adjusted that, the elastic part at my waist would move and look totally off, and anytime I even so much as thought about raising my arms, the sleeves would pop up over my shoulders. Then I thought “maybe it’s supposed to be there”…but no, that didn’t look right. “This HAS to be an off-the-shoulder-dress!” Needless to say, I’m not keeping this dress lol. I just wasn’t comfortable in it. BUT…it sure does look cute, right? Great color. Lightweight. Cute ruffle with little pom-poms hanging from it.

Oh, and one of the best things about this fix- everything is machine-washable. My stylist knows that this mom-of-3 lifestyle doesn’t allow for much “dry clean only” in my life¬†ūüėÄ

 

Item #5: Serina Perforated Wedge (REPORT FOOTWEAR) $60

 

Stitch Fix #30- A Spring Fix! Serina Perforated Wedge

I asked for a neutral wedge sandal and that’s exactly what I got. While I love the color and the height of these, I just didn’t love the style. The perforated thing doesn’t bother me, I just didn’t like the straps. Covers too much of the top of my foot I think…. I’m picky. We’ll keep trying in the next fix to find the winners. But these ain’t it.

(For more shots of these sandals on- see the pics above with the blue dress!)

 

To Recap:

  1. Attica V-Neck Tank Top: KEEP
  2. Chester Cargo Short: KEEP
  3. Adorra Skinny Jean: KEEP
  4. Jesslyn Dress: RETURN
  5. Serina Perforated Wedge: RETURN

I’m excited to add those 3 keepers to my wardrobe! Keep an eye out for those pink pants. I’m on a hunt now to find even more tops to wear with them (perhaps I’ll blog about it…”What To Wear with Pink Pants”). Stay tuned!

Stitch Fix Review #29

Welcome to my first review since the big move: Stitch Fix Review #29! It was really fun taking these photos with a new backdrop. I love that I have a few options now- inside the house with glowy natural light in the living room, outside in the backyard with some greenery/fence action, or right up against our BLUE house! In front of the red front door is another option, but I’d be kind of embarrassed to”model” right out front for all the neighbors to see haha. So, for this shoot- we went with the blue house backdrop.

As I’ve said several times before, Stitch Fix was a LIFESAVER for me as a new mom, approaching my 30’s, trying to figure out my style and the best fit for my body. Over the course of 2 years worth of fixes, they had pretty much replaced my entire wardrobe. So I started getting more specific with my requests for special occasions or certain¬†items I was pining for.

For this particular “birthday fix” (it came right before¬†my birthday), I asked for “going out” pieces for date nights or girl’s nights. Items¬†that I would not necessarily wear during the day around my kids.¬†I was very pleased with what my stylist delivered- and especially loved all the bright, bold colors! I tend to get a lot of neutrals and a lot black in my fixes and trunks (for good reason, I almost always keep them lol). But I wanted more color in my wardrobe, and that’s what I’m getting now. Hooray!

Stitch Fix Review #29

 

1. Jax Filagree Drop Earrings, BAY TO BAUBLES- $28 (KEPT)

I didn’t get a great shot of the earrings other than the photo above, but I’m wearing them in all the other photos too. I didn’t have any earrings like this until now and I know I’ll wear them with just about anything, whenever I’m in a gold jewelry mood (which seems to be quite often recently).¬†So these were no-brainer keepers.

 

2. Charleene Woven Hem Split Back Knit Top, COLLETTE $38 (RETURNED)

Stitch Fix Review #29 Charleene Woven Hem Split Back Knit Top

Stitch Fix Review #29 Charleene Woven Hem Split Back Knit Top

Stitch Fix Review #29 Charleene Woven Hem Split Back Knit Top

While I love the red color, the soft fabric and the woven hemline- I ended up returning this. Mostly because of the sheer back. I don’t like that you can see my bra strap..and even the bumps of the straps underneath it. I already have too many tops that I need to wear a cami underneath and I just want more things that I can wear by itself, ya know? I’m almost on fix #30 so I’m getting picky lol. I do need more of this color in my wardrobe though so I’ll be asking for another red top in the future. And I really do love that kind of hem. Sigh…

 

Maisha Ponte and Faux Leather Jacket, EDYSON $88 (RETURNED)

Stitch Fix Review #29 Maisha Ponte and Faux Leather Jacket

Stitch Fix Review #29 Maisha Ponte and Faux Leather Jacket

This faux leather jacket is pretty much perfect. It’s such a great piece to add a little “edge” to any outfit. It was super comfortable and looked amazing with the outfit I had on. I also love the open drape front. So you’re probably wondering why the heck I returned it lol. Well, it’s because I JUST got my first REAL black leather jacket from Trunk Club about a week earlier. So it didn’t make sense for me to keep this since the “black leather jacket” category¬†is already covered in my wardrobe now.

4. Castello Scallop Hem Blouse, ALICE BLUE $44 (KEPT)

This is a perfect “going-out” blouse. It does require a strapless bra which made it lose a FEW points, but again…it’s for going out. I can make a little extra effort haha. I love the royal blue color and the scallop hemline (such a cute detail). The back is cute too. It was my husband’s favorite out of the entire fix, so that helped¬†make my decision a little easier ūüôā Keeper.

5. Alexis Dress, FRENCH GREY $48 (RETURNED)

Stitch Fix Review #29 Alexis Dress

Stitch Fix Review #29 Alexis Dress

Sadly, this dress didn’t fit. Too big in the chest area…story of my life lol. Also, I’m not really big in to wearing bright pink. Had it fit me well enough and I wanted to give it a try, I would probably pair it with a jacket or cardigan to tone down all the pink. But it is a cute dress and would look great on someone else! It’s also a really great price for a Stitch Fix dress!

So, what do you think of my fix? If you see anything you like, be sure to pin it to your own Pinterest board so your stylist can see!

Before I go, just want to remind you about an exciting announcement that Stitch Fix made this week– they launched Plus Size!¬†I’m thrilled that this amazing service is available to more women now. Well done, Stitch Fix!

Stitch Fix Launches Plus Size!

Hello lovely readers! I’m popping back on to the blog, escaping all the moving chaos, to share some exciting¬†Stitch Fix news with all of you. After years of offering personal styling services to women, sizes 0 to 14 (including petite and maternity), Stitch Fix is now expanding their size range to include even more women. Today, Stitch Fix launches¬†Plus Size! Sizes now range from 0 to 24W and XS to 3X. ¬†I read that there were over 75,000 women on the waitlist for this. That is significant (and very telling)!

Note: This post contains affiliate links. If a purchase is made using a link, I will receive a small commission which helps support this blog. 

Stitch Fix Launches Plus Size!

Stitch Fix has been a wardrobe lifesaver for me as a mom of 3 little ones who rarely gets to go shopping alone, and even when I do, I always end up in the juniors department with no idea how to dress myself lol. So I’m thrilled that even more women, of all shapes and sizes, get to take advantage of this service now.

It’s not just about the shopping convenience. It’s about having a personal stylist help you figure out what your style is and how to best dress your body with the most flattering fit to give you confidence in how you look. There is so much value in that for me, (and clearly thousands of other women too) that makes this service worth every penny!

Stitch Fix Launches Plus Size!

For this launch, Stitch Fix even created their own exclusive brands and partnered with some of the others they’ve been working with, to include plus sizes. And they worked closely with 3 beautiful women chosen to represent the needs of women with curves: Allison, Kristine¬†and Alexandra. Check out their style blogs and be INSPIRED. Seriously.

This launch is a long-time coming and I’m so excited for everyone who has been waiting for this!

Stitch Fix Review- January 2017

Stitch Fix Review- January 2017

Stitch Fix¬†Review- January¬†2017 is here! My first fix of the New Year. This Bay Area rain has been preventing me from getting these photos taken outside, but thankfully there was a brief respite this afternoon (and we finished JUST in time before it started back up again). For this fix I requested distressed denim, casual flats and something trendy. I received just that! I’m on the fence about one of them in particular and would love your opinion to help me decide. But first, a reminder of how this thing works:

Stitch Fix is an online personal styling service. You create an account online, ¬†and complete a style survey with your preferences and sizes. Then, you schedule a fix. You can sign up for automatic fixes or schedule them on demand, totally up to you! A stylist will put together a fix for you, containing 5 items based on your style profile and notes/requests. Once your fix ships, you‚Äôll be charged a $20 styling fee, which is credited toward your purchase if you decide to keep anything. You have 3 days to try stuff on and checkout online. Then you send back whatever you don‚Äôt want, in the bag included in your fix (a shipping label is already on it). Free shipping both ways! Super simple. It’s the perfect solution for anyone who doesn’t have much time to shop, doesn’t enjoy the shopping experience (in stores), or just has no clue how to style themselves (::raises hand::). Or, for anyone that just wants to experience the fun factor of having a box of clothes arrive on ¬†your doorstep ūüôā

Ok, back to my fix!

Item 1: Jerri Polka Dot Pullover Sweater (RENEE C) $64

This, I am definitely keeping. A simple sweater with a cute detail: embroidered polka dots! It’s a fairly thin sweater and a bit sheer so I wore a cami underneath it. But I love everything else about it. Because it’s thin and not bulky, it can easily be worn underneath another layer (like a cardigan or open jacket). I can’t wait to try styling this in other ways! If we weren’t racing the rain when we took these pictures, I would’ve experimented a bit. I did pair it here with my locket necklace from my J.Crew Trunk. I love pairing pink and grey together.

Item 2: Ailsey Frayed Hem Crop Jean (JUST USA) $58

I’ve had a very back-and-forth relationship with distressed demin. I used to like it and then decided I didn’t. I made sure my stylists knew I never wanted distressed denim. Now, I’m back to liking it again. However, I’m very picky about the amount and “style” of the distressing lol. I want it look as naturally distressed as possible, and not too much. These jeans, unfortunately, didn’t pass the test for me. That said, they fit perfectly, I like the frayed hem at the bottom and the price was definitely right! So if it weren’t for my pickiness, these would’ve been keepers.

Also, if you’re wondering who/what I was smiling at in those first photos:

Stitch Fix Review- January 2017

Gwen likes to hang out with mommy and daddy during photo shoots ūüôā She always brings out the best natural smiles and makes it less awkward to model (I’m most comfortable BEHIND the lens).

Item 3: Bardeux Knit Jacket (TRIBAL) $88

Stitch Fix Review- January 2017: Bardeux Knit Jacket Stitch Fix Review- January 2017: Bardeux Knit Jacket Stitch Fix Review- January 2017: Bardeux Knit Jacket

This jacket/cardigan is a beautiful color that looks even better in person. I’d say it’s a “mid-weight” jacket- warm and so very soft. I love the asymmetrical zipper thing too. I received a similar one in another fix¬†awhile ago. However, the giant lapels on this one kind of threw me off. I’m not sure why I don’t like it, but I just don’t. They’re too big. Am I crazy? I mean, for the price I should really love it, and not be caught up on the size of the lapels lol. Probably returning this.

Item 4: Bariel Cold Shoulder Blouse (CRESCENT) $48

As you might’ve guessed, this is¬†the “something trendy” item. I’ve seen the “cold-shoulder” thing on various blogs and Pinterest boards for awhile now but it was never something that I thought I liked. Even the first time I tried this one on, I wasn’t sure about it. However, the more I look at these pictures…the more I think I may like it. It’s kind of growing on me. Out of all the “cold shoulder” tops I’ve seen, this is by far my favorite. It’s definitely a unique piece, out of my comfort zone and unlike anything I have in my wardrobe (except for the black and white thing…I have a lot of that going on). It’s kind of fun and “flirty” without being too immodest. The first thing out of my husband’s mouth was “Soooo, date night?” I *think* that means he likes it? haha What do you guys think? Should I keep this one? Or cover those shoulders? Help me decide!!!

Also, before showing you my last item, just want to highlight my new pretty necklace from Mint + Birch.

Mint and Birch Custom Necklaces Mint and Birch Custom Necklaces

I’ve been following Mint and Birch on Instagram for awhile and finally decided to order a necklace set as an early birthday present to myself ūüôā I love them! I love wearing something so personalized to me, with some very special dates on them <3 I wear them just about every day.

Also- I have no affiliation with Mint + Birch whatsoever, just wanted to share. These custom necklaces would make a great present for a very special woman in your life (Valentine’s Day is coming up!)

Item 5: Jutti Chambray Flats (TOMS) $84

Stitch Fix Review January 2017: Jutti Chambray Flats Stitch Fix Review January 2017: Jutti Chambray Flats

Stitch Fix Review January 2017: Jutti Chambray Flats

I actually love these flats. So much so that I already own a pair haha. Just in a different color. This pair in particular was too big. My feet did grow during my last pregnancy, but not to a size 9. I think that must’ve been all they had in stock. In any case, they’re very comfortable flats and I love the neutral grey color of these and the texture. If they were the right size and I didn’t already own a similar pair, I would’ve kept them.

To Recap:

Jerri Polka Dot Pullover Sweater: Keeping
Ailsey Frayed Hem Crop Jean: Returning
Bardeux Knit Jacket: Returning
Bariel Cold Shoulder Blouse: Undecided, but leaning towards keeping
Jutti Chambray Flats: Returning

¬†Now¬†check out some other fixes for even more style inspiration! I’ve linked up with some other bloggers to share our recent fixes (hosted by Maria at Crazy Together). Enjoy!

Stitch Fix Men Review- January 2017

Happy New Year Everyone! We’re kicking off¬†2017 with another Stitch Fix review! But this one isn’t mine. This is our very first Stitch Fix Men Review- January 2017. If you weren’t aware, Stitch Fix for Men launched just last year. I’ve personally¬†been a Stitch Fix customer since the summer of 2014, just after having baby #2. ¬†And I received my #27 fix (!) in December. So I was excited to see what they had to offer for Men and signed my husband¬†up for early access. A service like this is perfect for him because he likes to dress well but hates to go shopping! Therefore, ¬†it didn’t take much convincing to try it out ūüôā

He actually received his first fix a while ago last year, but because of the craziness of pregnancy/giving birth/having 3 kids, we never got around to writing that review. He kept a great pair of shoes from that one! The other items he received were great too (very much his style) but either the fit wasn’t right or he just didn’t have a big need for the item. Well, his stylist listened to all of his notes from that fix and sent him an INCREDIBLE 2nd fix. Seriously, she nailed this one.

*Note: this post contains affiliate links. If a purchase is made using one of the links, I receive a small commission which helps support this blog. That said, all opinions are 100% ¬†my own ¬†(or “our” own in this case)! We love to share our experience with products and services we love with all you lovely readers ūüôā – Krystal & Ivor

Before jumping into the fix, let’s quickly go over how Stitch Fix for Men works (hint: exactly the same as ¬†Stitch Fix for Women):

Stitch-Fix-Men-Personal-Stylist-Box

HOW IT WORKS:

 

1.¬†Create an account online and complete a style survey. This will give your stylist a good idea of what clothing styles you like and dislike, your sizes, how much you’re willing to spend on certain items, etc.

2. Schedule a fix. ¬†You can sign up for automatic fixes, or schedule them on demand whenever you want. Once your¬†fix is scheduled, you can leave a¬†note for your stylist with any specific requests you might have. For this fix, my husband asked for items similar to those pictured in an email he received from Stitch Fix called ¬†“weekend vibes”:

Stitch Fix Men Review

3. When your fix ships, you’ll be charged a $20 styling fee, which is credited toward your purchase if you keep anything.

4. Once your fix arrives, have 3 days to try on your items at home and check-out online. At checkout, you can (and should) leave detailed feedback about each item so they can make any improvements for future fixes.

5. Then use the already-labeled shipping bag included in your fix to send back any items you don’t want (free shipping, both ways!)

That’s it! Very easy and very convenient. Things we love ūüôā

So let’s get started with my husband’s fix! You may notice that it looks quite similar to what was pictured in the email above, per his request!

 

Stitch Fix Men Review- January 2017

With each fix, you receive a personalized note from your stylist. Here’s his:

Stitch Fix Men Review

 

Item 1: Mateo Textured Chukka (TOMS)

 

Stitch Fix Men Review- January 2017 Stitch Fix Men Review- January 2017

 

What he says:¬†They’re extremely comfortable.

-a man of few words ¬†ūüôā

 

Stitch Fix Men Review

 

What she says:¬†I loved these as soon as I saw them. While I can’t comment on how they feel (Ivor took care of that above lol), I am a big fan of how they look. ¬†I like the ¬†“chukka” style on him ¬†for a casual shoe. It’s not TOO casual but not too dressy either. He has a similar pair in brown so it’s nice that he now has a¬†pair in grey- another neutral that will go well with many outfits. ¬†And the textured print thing just makes them a little more interesting. ¬†I approve!

 

Item 2: Hunter 1/4  Zip Textured Pullover (TAILOR VINTAGE)

 

Stitch Fix Men Review Stitch Fix Men Review- January 2017

 

What he says: It’s soft and a great weight for California evenings/winters.

 

Stitch Fix Men Review

 

What she says:¬†First of all, I got a smile out of him! Win. Second of all, this is a great sweatshirt. While there’s nothing particularly special or unique about it (and let’s be honest, my husband isn’t quite as concerned about¬†such traits in his clothing as I am lol), it keeps him warm, it looks good, it’s another neutral so he’ll wear it with everything, and he doesn’t have another shirt like it already. Keeper.

 

Item 3: Marina Jean (A GOLD E)

 

Stitch Fix Men Review- January 2017 Stitch Fix Men Review- January 2017

 

What he says: ¬†I like the fact that they’re a classic denim, with no stretch. I think the wash is great.

 

Stitch Fix Men Review

 

What she says: Like he said, I love the¬†classic denim look. ¬†A lot of jeans have some stretch to them (even men’s jeans), and while there’s nothing wrong with that it’s just nice to have some variety. The medium wash is really nice and they look great on him. These were a little pricey but good denim is totally worth it. Especially since he only really owns 2 pairs of jeans (now 3) and wears them out until they’re no longer acceptable to wear in public ¬†ūüôā

 

Item 4: Ontario Button Down (ORIGINAL PENGUIN)

 

Stitch Fix Men Review- January 2017 Stitch Fix Men Review- January 2017

 

What he says: I like the pattern and it works really well with the jeans and other items I received.

 

Stitch Fix Men Review

 

What she says: ¬†This is a classic “Ivor” shirt. He has a ton of ¬†button down shirts and a large portion of them are plaid/checkered. While he doesn’t necessarily need another one, I like the colors of this one in particular (he doesn’t have one like it) and I know he loves this brand (Original Penguin). It’s just too tight for his muscular chest. ¬†Not a bad problem to have really ūüėČ

 

Item 5:  Kolt Four Pocket Jacket (EZEKIEL)

 

Stitch Fix Men Review- January 2017  Stitch Fix Men Review- January 2017

 

What he says:¬†Like the pullover, it’s the perfect weight for California weather (spring/summer nights, all day fall/winter). It’s comfortable and soft and I love how well it works with the other things I’m wearing. ¬†The stylist did a great job putting together an entire outfit.

 

Stitch Fix Men Review

 

What she says:¬†I LOVE¬†this jacket! The whole look together is perfection (he’s wearing 4/5 items in his fix…you just can’t see the shoes). The funny thing is, he was just telling me the same day his fix arrived, that he really needed a coat like this. Something heavier then a zip-up hoodie, but lighter than a heavy winter coat. It was an item that was missing in his outerwear collection, so he was thrilled to get this! It looks fantastic on him. It’s a dark navy blue color (which is more obvious¬†outside in natural lighting. Inside it looks much darker, see pic below).

 

Stitch Fix Men Review

 

TO RECAP:

He kept everything for the discount (you get 25% off for keeping an entire fix), even though the button down shirt is¬†a little too small. He really loved everything else and it was cheaper to just keep it all with the discount, then buy the other 4 items by themselves. Stitch Fix does now offer exchanges but sadly they were out of stock in the size he needed. So we’ll be selling the button down shirt!

What do you think? Would the man in your life be interested in something like this? Sign him up ūüėČ

My Favorite Things From Stitch Fix- 2016

As the year comes to a close, it’s always nice to reflect back on all the good things that happened. In an especially rough year, ¬†it can be easy to only see the bad and let it overshadow the good. If you’ve spent any amount of time on social media recently, you’ll see an onslaught of “good riddance 2016!!”¬†comments, and other similar sentiments. So in a year like this one, I think it’s even MORE important to spend time reflecting on the good. I mean, my beautiful daughter came into the world this year. As did my miracle nephew, Mason. I made new friends. ¬†And I received really amazing new clothes, which isn’t nearly as important as the previous things mentioned but I still feel very grateful for it. These are all good things to celebrate ūüôā So, we’ll start with My Favorite Things From Stitch Fix– 2016!

Here are my top 5 favorite Stitch Fix  items/outfits that I received this year. Some are maternity, since I spent half the year pregnant : )

*Note: This post contains affiliate links. If a purchase is made using one of the links,  I will receive a  small commission which helps support this blog!  That said, all opinions are 100% my own.  I just love sharing my experience with products and services I love with all you lovely readers! 

In no particular order…

1. Charlote Ruched Side Maternity Knit Top ($48) and Taylor Maternity Cuffed Demin Short ($54)

 

Best of Stitch Fix- 2016 Maternity Taylor Maternity Cuffed Denim Short  Best of Stitch Fix- 2016 Maternity Charlote Ruched Side Maternity Knit Top

This was the outfit I lived in for the majority of the 3rd trimester. The top was lightweight enough that it was OK to wear during the summer heat (MOST days. Some days were just INSANELY hot, and wearing no clothing at all was almost an option). The shorts were the only pair of maternity shorts I owned and luckily they were super comfortable, fit well and went with everything. So they got a ton of use! I’ve since passed both pieces on to another pregnant mama (because this shop is CLOSED, people), but I’ll always have these pictures to look back on ūüôā

 

2. Sina V-Neck Printed Maxi Dress ($78)

 

Best of Stitch Fix- 2016 Maternity Sina V-Neck Printed Maxi Dress Best of Stitch Fix- 2016 Maternity Sina V-Neck Printed Maxi Dress

This dress technically isn’t even maternity but it came in a maternity fix because it worked so well with the baby bump! ¬†And of course, I love that I can still wear it now, postpartum. It’s so light, comfortable, breathable, figure-flattering and has a gorgeous print! I can’t wait for warmer weather to start wearing this again. Bonus: it’s also nursing-friendly!

 

3. Genevieve Stacked Chevron Pendant Necklace $28

 

Best of Stitch Fix- 2016 Genevieve Stacked Chevron Pendant Necklace

Sigh. ¬†I ¬†LOVED this necklace. I had been looking for a long, gold pendant necklace to wear with my casual outfits and my Stitch Fix stylist delivered. I wore this almost every day for several weeks… until… my daughter broke it ūüôĀ She ¬†didn’t mean to of course. She sort of jumped up into my arms and her little hands pulled down on the necklace and the chain broke. I keep telling myself ¬†I’ll¬†take it somewhere to get it fixed. But all moms of little ones know how likely that is lol. ¬†RIP chevron pendant necklace.

 

4. Addison Skinny Jeans ($88)

 

The Best of Stitch Fix - 2016 Edition- Burkett Lace Detail Knit Top My Favorite Things From Stitch Fix- 2016

I have a feeling you’ll be seeing a lot more of these pants in 2017. I pair them with just about everything that you can possibly pair with burgundy skinny ¬†jeans. The fit and length is SO perfect, which is surprisingly rare for me. I’m 5’4, so not *quite* petite, but most pants still run long on me. These “ankle” length pants feel just right. They also have a lot of stretch to them. It was one of the first pair of “pre-pregnancy size” jeans that I could ¬†wear¬†postpartum, even when others of the same size still felt too tight. Amazing, amazing jeans!

 

5. Ceaton Contrast Front Knit Top ($54)

 

My Favorite Things From Stitch Fix- 2016 Ceaton Contrast Front Knit Top My Favorite Things From Stitch Fix- 2016 Ceaton Contrast Front Knit Top

Last but not least, a favorite from my most recent December fix! This gorgeous striped floral top is so soft and so pretty. I had nothing like it in my wardrobe (until now). Whenever I immediately wear an item out in public that I JUST received, I know it’s going to be a wardrobe fave. This was one such item.

 

Well, I hope you’ve enjoyed reading my reviews this year and I look forward to what 2017 will bring! I’m working on a major blog redesign and other improvements to make your experience as a reader even better! I can’t wait ūüôā

Before you leave, I’ve linked up with some other bloggers to share our¬†most recent fixes (hosted by the lovely Maria from “Crazy Together”). Check it out!

Romantic December Stitch Fix Review

Well friends, 2017 is almost here! So this is likely my last Stitch Fix review of the year! Hard to believe. Somewhere between being super pregnant, giving birth and then suddenly having 3 kids (ages 3 and under), I lost track of what “number” fix I was on, skipped a few months and didn’t find time to review some of the ones¬†that I did¬†receive. But I’m back on track for 2017! I hope… ūüôā Thankfully, Stitch Fix keeps track for me. This is Fix #27, a “Romantic December Stitch Fix!”

I’ve titled this a “romantic” fix because I think all the pieces I received have an element of romance to them. It wasn’t something I specifically requested, but I’ll take it! I did request some options to wear for my husband’s “New Years” party coming up, and while I only kept 2 things from this fix, I was very pleased with my options.

Before I get into this fix, let me give a quick summary of how it works, for those of you who may not be familiar: Stitch Fix is an online personal styling service. You create an account online, ¬†and complete a style survey with your preferences and sizes. Then, you schedule a fix. You can sign up for automatic fixes or schedule them on demand, totally up to you! A stylist will put together a fix for you, containing 5 items based on your style profile and notes/requests. Once your fix ships, you’ll be charged a $20 styling fee, which is credited toward your purchase if you decide to keep anything. You have 3 days to try stuff on and checkout online. Then you send back whatever you don’t want, in the bag included in your fix (a shipping label is already on it). Free shipping both ways! Super simple.

Now, let’s get started with my December fix!

Note: This post contains affiliate links. If purchases are made (or you sign up for Stitch Fix) using one of the links, I receive a small commission which helps support this blog. That said, all opinions are 100% my own. I love sharing my experience with all of you! 

Romantic December Stitch Fix Review

 

Item 1: Leeah Lace Knit Dress (WISP) $68

 

Romantic December Stitch Fix Review- Leeah Lace Knit Dress Romantic December Stitch Fix Review- Leeah Lace Knit Dress

Romantic December Stitch Fix Review- Leeah Lace Knit Dress Romantic December Stitch Fix Review- Leeah Lace Knit Dress

Romance element #1: lace! I love the soft lace and the gorgeous navy color of this dress. It’s a good length and the skirt part is nice and flowy. However, it wasn’t the best fit for me. It might be hard to tell from the photos, but it was just a bit too big ¬†and didn’t have the most flattering cut/shape for my body. Therefore, returned.

I styled it with the suede leather jacket I received from Trunk Club (LOVING the navy/cognac color combo!), my new necklace from the J.Crew Trunk, and my favorite leopard print heels. Oh, and we can’t forget my hair-tie “bracelets” (oops…) ūüėÄ

 

Item 2: Rumi 2fer Mixed Material Dress (WISP) $98 / Item 3: Shirley Metal Lace Collar Necklace (BAY TO BAUBLES) $34

 

Romantic December Stitch Fix Review- Rumi 2fer Mixed Material Dress Romantic December Stitch Fix Review- Rumi 2fer Mixed Material Dress

Romantic December Stitch Fix Review- Rumi 2fer Mixed Material Dress Romantic December Stitch Fix Review- Shirley Metal Lace Collar Necklace

For our 2nd romance element: red and black florals (and a shiny “lace” necklace). This dress is very well made (and a little pricey). I love the colors and the print of the bottom. I like that the top is solid black, making it a perfect blank canvas for ¬†a shiny accessory. This¬†dress (and the previous one) would work well for weddings, date nights, work parties, etc. But sadly, the fit was off again for me. A little big, a hair too long. I just didn’t feel great in it. So, returned.

The necklace is a light and bright silver and “collar” length as described. It worked really well with both of these dresses. But I already have similar pieces that I love a little more, so I returned the necklace too.

 

Item 4: Burkett Lace Detail Knit Top (PAPERMOON) $48

 

Romantic December Stitch Fix Review- Burkett Lace Detail Knit Top Romantic December Stitch Fix Review- Burkett Lace Detail Knit Top Romantic December Stitch Fix Review- Burkett Lace Detail Knit Top A Romantic December Stitch Fix Review- Burkett Lace Detail Knit Top

Romance element #1 again: lace (black lace this time- pushing it a bit more toward the “sexy” side of things). Simply put: I love this top.¬†It is so soft and honestly, I can’t¬†get enough “lace detail” in my wardrobe.¬†The sleeves have a nice stretch to them so it’s not uncomfortable or tight. Very flattering fit. Absolute keeper!

I paired the top with my favorite Stitch Fix jeans- the “Addison Skinny Jean‚ÄĚ by Just Black, Kendra Scott Earrings¬†and Vince Camuto booties!

 

       

 

Item 5: Ceaton Contrast Front Knit Top (LE LIS) $54

 

Romantic December Stitch Fix Review- Ceaton Contrast Front Knit Top Romantic December Stitch Fix Review- Ceaton Contrast Front Knit Top Romantic December Stitch Fix Review- Ceaton Contrast Front Knit Top Romantic December Stitch Fix Review- Ceaton Contrast Front Knit Top

Final romance element: pink florals! I love the contrast of the flowers on the black and white stripes. The photos make the stripes look more bright white, but in person it’s more of an ivory color, which makes it even MORE romantic¬†in a vintage sort of way. I love that it’s not striped all the way around- making it more flattering. It has a relaxed fit, and it’s longer in the back, so not “boxy” (which used to be a complaint of mine with a lot of Stitch Fix tops in the past). It’s a soft knit material- like a thin sweater. I really can’t say enough good things about it. It’s a keeper!

Regarding how I styled it….there’s something about the romantic florals that made me want to pair it with pearls. Flowers and pearls is a classic¬†“romantic” combo, in my opinion. I wore these earrings on my wedding day and I honestly have no idea where they came from lol. But here’s a similar pair. The jeans are actually maternity jeans that I’m still wearing (5 months postpartum) because they are amazingly comfortable. It’s a “side panel” ¬†maternity jean which I think should just be¬†standard in all pants.¬†And my shoes are “patent leather” nude flats. ¬†Similar pair here!

 

RECAP: 

Item 1: Leeah Lace Knit Dress (WISP) $68: RETURNED

Item 2: Rumi 2fer Mixed Material Dress (WISP) $98: RETURNED

Item 4: Burkett Lace Detail Knit Top (PAPERMOON) $48 KEPT

Item 5: Ceaton Contrast Front Knit Top (LE LIS) $54 KEPT

 

While the dresses didn’t work out for me, I am very happy with my keepers. I’m wearing the striped floral top as we speak (I’m kind of obsessed).¬†Looking forward to my first fix of the New Year! Stay tuned…
