Hello everyone, Happy Monday! As promised, I am styling two of the looks from my very first Stitch Fix box. As I mentioned, I ended up keeping all five pieces! It’s so fun to have someone restyle your look. My stylist took the time to check out the blog as well as my Pinterest and Instagram posts, so I am impressed!
Have any of you tried Stitch Fix or one of the other mail styling services? I have many friends who sing the praises of Stitch Fix and I wish I had something like it when I was working 50 hour weeks! I have been buying online for many of my clothing items for some time. My go-to shops have been Nordstrom, Talbots, Lands End and JJill for some time, as they have quality pieces and their petite sizes run true-to-size. I just read an amazing statistic: malls, as we know them, will be closing at the rate of one out of four or about 25% in the next five years as we are all taking advantage of the convenience of online shopping. I still enjoy the occasional trip to the mall, but the crowds and parking can be very time consuming.
For today’s post, I am styling four out of the five pieces from my box. For the first shot, I am wearing the Balla Cargo Vest in olive.
I’m a bit of a sucker for olive as it seems to complement my skin. This top is made of tencel that looks like linen. It has a snap front top and an inside waist tie to shape the fit at the waist. I wore a tight body cami under it, and you could easily wear a short or long sleeve tee or top underneath. I loved the fit and feel, so it was a keeper!
With my Franco Sarto sandals and bronze cross-body, the outfit is almost complete! However, the cute gold cuff bracelet, also part of my Stitch Fix box, added some great bling along with my silver and gold disc earrings.
I am also styling some great jeans that were part of my box. They are by Lila Ryan and I love the fit of the super skinny ankles. The front closure consists of four buttons rather than a zipper, a really cute detail. They are stretchy (yay!) and super comfortable. Ok, another keeper!
The second top in my box is a really colorful floral: the McKenna Tie Halter Top. I wasn’t sure it would look good on me, but once I put it on, I loved the beautiful colors and the drape of the fabric.
This will be a great top to wear with shorts or summer skirts. You will see me wearing it this July in Cabo! I am wearing a strapless bra with it due to the halter style. I’m not crazy about the one I currently have. What is your favorite strapless bra? I would love to get ideas from you!
Of course, what REALLY sold me is the back detail. Once again, it is the details that make the piece and the details on this top work really well. The piece that is fitted around the neckline on the front are the loose pieces used to tie the halter, as shown here. I just love it~
I hope you enjoyed me sharing my experience with Stitch Fix. I ordered one every-other-month so will be sharing the next box with all of you. If you are using Stitch Fix or another company’s service, I would love to hear about your experience! And a picture or two would be so great to share with others! You obviously don’t have to be a beauty queen–that is my point, that no matter what our age or body shape or anything else, we can still be stylish, flaws and all! Believe me, every time I work with these pictures, I see the flaws, but I am learning to live with what I have and enjoy it. I want all of you to do the same! That is the purpose of my blog.
Tomorrow I will share the piece de resistance from my Stitch Fix box, so be sure to check in and check it out! And, as always, thanks to many of you for Liking and Sharing my posts on Pinterest, Instagram, and.Facebook. I so appreciate it.
