StitchFix #11 review - May 2015

So, I haven't been blogging about my Fixes. (Or at all, actually.) 

I have a ton of other exciting news (including job stuff and KonMari) but for now, here's my StitchFix #11 review!

I get a $25 credit if you sign up and get a Fix, so if you love this and want to try it (the most you could be out is $20 styling fee if you hate it all and return it) please use my referral link:

First, I LOVE the stylist I have had the last 2 months. Last month I kept everything in the box for the first time ever! And this time I was also pleased as punch with stylist Niccole. I know she is looking at things I have in my closet already from prior Fixes and also at my Pinterest board I linked! 

Here is the note from Niccole:

Item #1:
Bancroft Dante Cut Out Metal Oval Layered Necklace - $32
This is really pretty. I am lacking in a silver necklace of this length, and this one is not heavy on my neck. Gorgeous. But, I am trying to decide if it is bringing me joy.
Verdict: waffling but I kind of love it now that I'm looking at the photo. 
(PS, note cute bicycle shirt from Fix #10 last month.)

Item #2:
41Hawthorn Edwin Scarf Print top

So, Niccole sent this top because I loved the bicycle top and this one was a similar cut with a more eclectic print. I am apparently between SF sizes. I typically wear a M/L in tops, a 10, maybe a 12. I do not have a particularly well-endowed chest area. (This is ok with me ;)) - but the larges were sometimes tight in the sleeves (I do have linebacker arms) so I tried one month to get XL tops. Well, the armpits hung low and you could see my bra from a sleeveless shirt. So I went back to large. I think it's fine. I do LOvE this print and it will pair nicely with my baby and my neutral color suits for work. And it looks great with my KUT from the Kloth skinny jeans.

Verdict: Keeper!!

Item #3:
Brixon Ivy Lex Textured Knit Fit & Flare Dress in yellow 

Before I post photos of this... I knew I wasn't going to keep it when I saw the fabric. I thought the color was awkward, not for my skin tone, and I just didn't think I'd like it. It looked a little green on the style card and was cute enough... Just not "me" - plus, I have had a little trouble with some of the SF dresses being a little short (since I AM well-endowed in my backside area).

But, in my lamenting over whether this dress brought me joy, my fierce yet adorable friend and fellow StitchFix fan, Amy said "well it brings ME joy!" So I tried it on and took some photos and - hell's bells, it's pretty cute and joyful after all. 
(Note cute denim jacket from prior fix.)
So.... It doesn't make me look nearly as frumpy as I thought it might, it's not too short, it's knit so it's way comfy... I'm feeling a good bit of joy out of this one...)
Verdict: Keeper!!!

Item #4:
41Hawthorn Abrianna knit cardigan in navy
So, I've had other of these open front type cardigans sent by stitch fix. I liked them. I sent them all back. They did not bring me joy. However, I think Niccolw might be a mind-reader because I was just thinking while planning my cruise wardrobe for next week's trip that I wish I had a more neutral, non-denim, throw over many outfits cardigan or knit jacket or something. I wear my denim jacket a LOT. But I also have two great pairs of KFTK jeans and I'm not all about the denim suit thing ... So, behold, the perfect cardigan of glory:

Verdict: Keeper!!!

Item #5:
Renee C Alondra Ruched pencil skirt in navy

I thought, "um, no." When I got this out of the box.
as previously mentioned, I like big butts and I cannot lie (mostly because I have one and I own it and it's pretty tight from boot camp and running, but still super curvy...)
However, again I decided to try it on and take some photos to share and when I got the whole look on, dayum if it doesn't look great. 
And this is going to make my Husband happy:
Verdict: waffling...

In the end, the total for everything is $270. After my $20 styling fee is applied, it's $250. But? If I keep everything, I get a whopping 25% discount on the lot and the total is $187.50


so- yay, it all brings me joy and I'm keeping it all and I hope I have Niccole forever and ever as my stylist.
