Get your fashion fix

I’ve been trying Sitch Fix lately and love the opportunity to try pieces I wouldn’t pick out myself. I like trying out different cuts, styles, & prints.

You fill out a style profile of sizes, what you like,  styles you like. Sizing has been pretty much spot on .

Stitch Fix is a monthly fashion box that sends you 5 pieces of clothing /accessories based on your profile. You get to try them on, keep and buy what you want. You then send the items you don’t want back to them in the pre-addressed envelope. The styling fee for each box is $20 which will be applied to what you decide to keep. So if you have an item that $54  , you will pay $34.  If you love the whole box you also get an additional discount.

I also like that they send a paper with different ways to style the pieces you get. Plus a paper with prices of each piece.

 

You can try it too! Get $25 to go towards you styling fee / items you buy ( The styling fee is $20)  I also get $25 if you use my link 🙂 win win

 

Here are some of the pieces I have tried.

GreenDress

Loved this green dress. It fit perfectly and felt great on. I ended up keeping it. My $20 styling fee which was given to me, went towards this purchase so I only paid $18 for it.

Black& White Outfit

Here is a outfit regret. I wish I kept the top but also the bottom as well.  I loves the fit and feel of the Dee Elly stretchy crop top.  I also liked the print on the skirt.

I totally would have kept this dress if it was a little longer. The curse of being tall. I loved the cut ant fabric. One of those dress you can throw on and be put together.

Navyprintmaxidress

I wouldn’t have gone for this floral print. When I first saw it I was like eh not for me but then tried it on and it grew on me  I loved the stretchy top and cut out in the back. Again … if it were a little longer I would have considered keeping it.

KaleighAdaliaJumpsuit

I really like the cut of this Kaleigh Adalia jumpsuit.  It was soooo comfortable. It almost felt like pajamas but it would be acceptable to go everywhere in this outfit. The fabric was a little heavy and the print I was iffy on. It did make my butt look great though.

StitchFixdresstop

I would have kept the dress if it was in dress code for work but felt like I wouldn’t wear it enough. The top on the right didn’t fit quite right. Also tip: The skirt is not a skirt….its a dress I folded.

Stitch Fix Box review

Im a bit reluctant to trying clothing boxes because I can be picky with my clothing. I also have some issue with fit because  I am tall, have hips, & a small waist, long torso lol the list goes on.  Will they really know my style if I answer a few questions and choose some pictures?

Well thanks to T-mobile for hooking me up on T-mobile Tuesdays ( if you are a T-mobile customer , download the app for goodies!) with a $25 credit to use. I thought why not?

You can get a $25 credit too if you use my link ( I get credit as well) win win.

Stitch Fix Box

When you sign up you answer questions about your style , there are also photos of styles to choose from , & questions about your sizing,  so the stylist can choose what is best from the results & have them personalized.

It was a simple process.

You are charged a $20 styling fee which can be put towards an item in your box.

You have 3 days to decide what you want and don’t. There is a prepaid mailer in your box to return the items you don’t want. You only pay for what you keep.

My box came and I was excited to see what was inside. There was 5 items.

  • 2 tops
  • shorts
  • dress
  • necklace

They also send a price list & a sheet showing how you can style the pieces.

StitchFixStyle

One of my favorites from the box is this Pixley Crissie dress $68

I love the scallop detail on the neckline , the fit, color, and back.

I didn’t like that it had snap closures in the back. I do have long arms but a pain to do.

StitchFix Dress

 

Project Social T Natassia Mesh Trim Knit Top $40

STS Blue Eleonora Distressed Fray Hem Denim Shorts $38

The top was really comfortable and liked the mesh detail. It was so soft. It was a bit pricey for what it is though.

The shorts were also comfortable and a nice length.  A size smaller would have been better , when I checked their site they were out of the smaller size.

When I saw this print on this Renee C Jayani Halter top ($48) I wasn’t sure but when I tried it on I was pleasantly surprised. I didn’t care for the fit of it though. I prefer it to be more fitted or flowy.

StitchFix Halter

 

Last piece was an accessory . Bay to Baubles Sutara Filigree Circle Pendant $28

I liked the design but a bit too long for me.

StitchFix necklace

Overall , the items they picked are something I’d try on or stop and look at ….maybe minus the halter for the top but that’s what is great about these boxes. Trying something you might not.  The prices are a little high, for me anyway . I’m a bargain shopper so I know I could find similar pieces at places like Marshalls/TJ Maxx . I also wish they gave at least a week to think about it vs the 3 days. Especially since I just moved and am on a strict budget right now.

Have you tried Stitch Fix before? How did you like it?

Save money while shopping online

About a week ago I went to Marshall’s for a TJX rewards access event.  P.S if you shop at Home Goods, TJ Maxx , or Marshalls, sign up it’s free.  Every time you shop you will be entered into a sweepstakes, opportunities for giveaways, & special events.

At this event there was coffee, donuts, a chance to win a gift card ( I won $20!) , & free holiday wrapping paper.

I ended up buying this great black jumpsuit. I just tried it on for fun and was surprised it was the right length as well as fit in the right places. Being tall anything one piece is usually a miss.

I also found this Tommy Hilfiger coat which I really liked. It was warm, sleeves were long, coat was a great length, & the hood looked good and fit right. I feel like its going to be a very cold winter so I needed something to keep me warm.

I wanted to wait because I was very close on one of my survey sites to cash out , and one of the option was a Marshalls gift card. Well it didn’t go as planned and I didn’t want to wait. I went back & my size was gone!! Oh no. I was pretty bummed because I haven’t been this happy to find a coat in awhile.

I did take a photo of the tag when I was at the store the first time . I googled it and guess what? It was at Macy’s for the same price! YAY

My deal ended up being WAY better too.

Coat $79.99 ( $85.07 with tax)

  • Used 3 Macys gift cards ( from survey sites) about $64
  • $5 in plenti points
  • $16.xx on a egift card from a survey site

I paid $0 out of pocket.

Here is where it gets good.

 

ebates tommy coat

You can find the Tommy Hilfiger coat here

Macy’s had a deal if you spent a certain amount you would get back $10 in Macy’s Money

I used Ebates & received $9.60 back

There was also a deal on plenti if you spent $50 you would get back $10 plenti points

I ended up getting $29.68 back with different sites!

Ebates is great and I highly recommend adding the Ebates cash back button to your browser. That way you are reminded to use it. I would always forget, ever since I added the button I never forget.

If you use my link >> EBATES you will get back $10 on a qualifying purchase of $25 or more. Which can easily be done with holiday shopping.

I also suggest signing up for honey . If you want to save a little more money and/or you’re tired of looking for promo & coupon codes this site does it all for you.

 

 

What sites do you use to save?

Spring Wardrobe

 

It’s feeling like Spring every day still not warm enough for me to wear my new dresses but giving me hope I can wear them soon haha

Dresses

The only think I love wearing is dresses , so I always buy them. They are so easy to throw on with sandals for everyday or throw on heels for a dressier look.

Navy Polka Dot dress was $9.99 at H&M !

Mossimo Purple/ Magenta dress at Target for $26.99 I believe.  I loved the color, chevron, & the top.

MarshallsNineWestPurse

 

I found this Nine West bag at Marshalls for $19.99. I’ve been needing a smaller black bag & when I glanced in that section I found it right away.  I can be picky when it comes to my bags & never seem to have luck. I used a gift card I had which made this deal even better.

I have some more gift cards burning a whole on my wallet. I think I need to go on a little shopping spree.

Have you added anything new to your wardrobe for Spring? What is on your list?

OKAjewelry Earrings – So cute!

I recently received OKAjewelry earrings to review. I’ve been looking for this style of earrings for awhile . The photo on Amazon didn’t do these justice , when I opened the box I was very happy with this look of them.

You can find them on Amazon here for $25.95

OKAJewelry Earrings box

They come in a silver box with , velvet foam thing to keep them in place. They are gift ready!   These are 18k brass plated silver cubic zircon crystal earrings. They are about the size of a quarter.

OKAJewelry Earrings size

The back of the earring/ part that goes in your ear is a little thicker than my normal earrings but went into my ears easily and they were comfortable in. Once you put them in you squeeze the back part so they stat in place. I even took a nap with them in and they were still in place.

When the light hits them they give off a great sparkle. They are fun, feminine, fashionable, & easy to wear.

Great to wear casually or add the final touch on a dressier outfit.

I received these earrings at a discount for an honest review. All opinions are my own.

Before Christmas if you were the first 250 shoppers at Macy’s you would get a $10 gift card. I had to go to the mall anyway , so I stopped in. I wish there wasn’t a time frame because I didn’t have to shop that morning so went back a day or 2 later to buy something. With holidays , it was hectic but found something pretty easy.
