getting my fix

i am completely addicted to stitch fix.

fix #5 arrived last week, and it may be the best one yet. because i went back to my profile and removed all of the jewelry, all five items in this box were pieces of clothing - just the way i like it. 

first, i tried on these fabulous brick red skinny cords by kut from the kloth.

this is a really great color that will work wonderfully for fall/winter. and they're so comfy that i kept them on as i continued my little fashion show. 

next up: this super cute black lace-y tank.

another top that is the perfect length and drape-y fit for pairing with leggings:

just to reiterate...i'm totally aware that these pieces don't actually go together. honestly, i was just too lazy to change into another pair of jeans for this photo shoot. you know me. 

i dig how this little colorblock cardigan fits, and like the pants, isn't necessarily something i'd have chosen myself. for me, this is the beauty of stitch fix. i tend to get stuck in a rut and pick out the same stuff over and over again (just ask the teen), and this is a fun way to break out of my comfort zone. 

the final piece from this fix is the only one i was iffy on. but because of the "25% off the whole box" that they dangle in front of you, it was actually cheaper to keep it all than to send it back (note to the hub: please don't kill me). anyway, it is cute and i can wear it with a cardi, tights and boots now and sandals in the spring and summer.

  1. Really cute pieces! I'd probably put that dress with some leggings, tall boots and a cardigan so I could get some everyday wear out of it! Just a thought :-)

  2. Been wanting something to spice up my wardrobe and have been loving seeing your boxes...decided to bite the bullet and try it out (via your referral link!). Sad that I will have to wait until mid-December to get it, though (12/14 was the earliest they had!)


i heart comments. i wan-na hear what you have to say.
um, i think.

squeezing in all the sightseeing

this was our NYC home for a whole week: it was one of only a few hotels that i could find that offered two beds in a room rather than, say, ...
