Stitch Fix #9

I signed up for another Stitch Fix for February. My last box was great, but I didn't get to keep as many of the items as I wanted. So I thought I'd give it another whirl right away.

This was my best box yet! My stylist, Kia, called it "gold" because she said she had fun putting it together for me.

One of the best tips I have for you if you're thinking about getting a box, make sure to pin items you really want on Pinterest and change the caption to explain what you love about the item you're pinning. Then don't forget to leave a note in your request about your Pinterest board. Kia picked so much of what I'd pinned.

So let's take a look at what I got this month! The theme for this box is...Don't Knock It Til You Try It.

My first item is this color block hoodie. When I pulled it out of the box I was underwhelmed to say the least. But like most Stitch Fix items, once I tried it on, I was really happy with the fit and the way it looks on me. I like that its a "dressier" version of a lazy-day sweatshirt. Keeping this!

The next item was this cool cargo vest. It is really hard to tell if this is navy or black. They call it navy, but sometimes it reads black. I knew I'd love this before I tried it on. What can I say, I have the thing for vests right now. I got my mom a really cool vest for Christmas and I've been kicking myself for not getting myself one too. Now I have my own. Keeping this!

Oh, no they didn't. They sent me jeans. There is no way that they could possibly pick a jean that will fit. I have enough trouble finding the right size and style on my own. I was just sure that I would be disappointed when I tried to put these on. But...they fit like a glove. Plus, I love that they are slightly distressed boyfriend jeans. I don't have any distressed jeans, so I'm keeping these. So happy!

The fourth item is this cute striped tank. I was also worried that this wouldn't be flattering on or that it wouldn't fit across the bust area (my last box was wrought with that issue). But lucky me, it fits great and is really flattering. Plus I love the detailing with the yellow stitching. Keeping this!

Ahh, item number five. This was the one thing that I didn't have to try on to know it wasn't going to work. I look terrible in colors like this. I know blush is one of the hottest colors of the season, but it's just not for me. Plus the cut on the bottom of this wasn't flattering with my hips. This one is going back for sure.

So at the end of the day I am keeping four of the five items. So happy with my new pieces...especially thinking about how I'll style them with all my Stella & Dot bling. :)

Happy Valentine's Day to all of you. I'll be wearing something from my box out to dinner tonight.
