For the past few months, I have been getting Stitch Fix boxes delivered to my house. Stitch Fix is an online personal shopping site where a personal shopper picks out 5 items to send you each month. You get to try on the clothes in the comfort of your own home, pick out what you like and send the rest back in a pre-paid shipping envelope. The items are a bit pricier than what I would spend on my own at the store, but they are quality, name brand, items which I find to be a nice little way to pamper myself. I also love how fun it is, I mean, every month, I get to open a box of goodies and get to pick out a present for myself!
So let me just show you what I got this month!
Article 1: Aspen Boat Neck Striped Cotton Tee by 41Hawthorn $48
I loved this shirt. It was comfy, I LOVED the neckline. It was a thicker material so I knew it would hold up with my busy life. It was striped, which was awesome since I've been into stripes lately.
Those of you who follow me on Facebook seemed to love it as well! However, a couple comments said that there wasn't much that was special about it, and I would have to agree. It's a simple black and white shirt, and for $48, I could find something similar for less money.
Status: Returned, reluctantly
Article 2: Maddox Sheer Shoulder Tie-Dye Knit Shirt by Laila Jayde $44
First, this shirt was too big. When I got sick in April, I lost like 23 lbs and so I have a whole knew challenge when it comes to clothes. I loved the colors on this shirt and where I was iffy when I saw it, I was surprised to see that I liked how it looked on. Had it been in a smaller size, I might have kept it.
The opinion on Facebook was about the same as mine, it was a nice shirt, good colors, horrible fit. I agree.
Article 3: Montgomery Chevron Cross-Front Top by 41Hawthorn $48
I loved this top. It's not something I would normally try on myself because this style shirt usually never works out for me with my chest. I almost didn't even try this one on. But, once I did, I was in love. It was so comfortable, the fabric so soft, and it's a little stretchy which is nice and forgiving.
Your comments on Facebook agreed with my feelings as well! You all loved the color, style and cut. We are kindred spirits.
Article #4: Caldwell Pocket Front V-Neck Tee by Tart $54
Great shirt right? Lovely color, sure! But this shirt...I have one exactly like it, minus the pocket. I got it from Target for $8. There was no need to spend so much on it.
I didn't post this one on Facebook, but what did you think about it?
Article #5: Giuseppe Striped Funnel Neck Sweater by Evolution by Cyrus $48
When I opened my Stitch Fix box and saw this sweater, I had mixed emotions. I LOVED the color, I was taken back by the cut. Again, I almost didn't even bother to try it on because I figured I would hate it. Alas, I was surprised when I put it on and fell in love. I actually liked the neckline, which I thought I would hate. I loved the fit. I loved it all. But, it's impractical for the season and though I could buy it and just save it for fall, I don't want to spend almost $50 on something that would just sit for a few months.
I also did not post this one on Facebook, what are your thoughts? Should I have kept it?

So overall, I really enjoyed this box. I really think they captured my style and my desire for more color in my wardrobe. I was saddened that the prices were a bit higher, but I had some referral credits to use so I was able to get that shirt for FREE!! And I still have a $4 credit.
I would encourage everyone to try it, at least once! And if you do, please use my referral link, I get $25 for each new referral!
Additionally, I didn't blog about my March Stitch Fix that I got. Here are pictures of what I got:
