This week my Stitch Fix package couldn’t have arrived at a more perfect time. One reason being we haven’t been able to get out to shop since we’ve all been sick and there were a few last minute things I still needed before I fly out to the Influence Conference next week, so I was starting to feel a little anxious. Reason two: it was exactly what the doctor ordered for this mama, some much needed time to try on clothes and be girly while the babes napped. I didn’t want to stitch, clean, shower or even read. I just wanted to shop in the comfort of my own home, so thank you Stitch Fix for making that happen.

If you don’t know what Stitch Fix is by now you can see my previous posts about it HERE and HERE.
But basically Stitch Fix is a fun and easy way to keep your wardrobe up-to-date. They get your style and size preferences, then send you a package of stylish goodies to try on at home, in your closet, with your favorite jeans and heels.
Free Personal Shopper + Stylist in the comfort of your own home!
In other words IT’S AWESOME! And if you haven’t already you need to get on their wait list for your first fix HERE.

Okay, so like I said earlier when this box arrived I couldn’t have been happier, that is until I opened the box and saw all the goodness inside. I literally squealed and had decided on the spot that I was most likely keeping it all, as long as it all fit of course!
I had requested darker hues and fall colors for this fix and they basically nailed it! So  lets just get started and see what you guys think of this fix. (oh and please keep in mind these are fresh outta the box, no ironing was done so excuse the crunchy wrinkles in some of the garments, also my grapes from the vines pictured behind me in each photo are all over the cement and I didn’t take the time to clean the photo “backdrop”…roll with it)

dress

First up was this Arrow Shirt. I loved it and even paired it with a pencil skirt and a hundred different shoes. Very versatile + super chic = KEEPER!dress

Okay so this Annette Silk top is beautiful. I love the black collar and the fabric covered buttons, the pleats running in different directions on the bust area and on the end of the sleeves! Short in front but longer in the rear. It is perfect and I love it. Definite keeper!dress

Now onto the dresses: First of the dresses was this Belted Cowl-neck Dress. I liked it on the hanger but when I tried it on and discovered it had pockets I was instantly sold! It has a modern-vintage feel which is right up my alley. KEEPER!dress

So you know how I mentioned I was getting stressed about last minute things for the Influence Conference next week? Yeah well one of those things was finding a striped dress for the Stripes Party they are having. Now I’m not against stripes or anything it’s just that I’m not a big stripes wearer unless it’s a patterned stripe or vintage. So since I hadn’t found anything that I actually liked and was running out of time to shop, you better believe I did a happy dance when I pulled out this little number made by Charlie Jade! Oh and it has pockets. Pockets people!!! Yes I have a thing with my dresses having pockets. I love when they do. I could go on and on about this dress but you get the point, this dress is a keeper! LOVE LOVE LOVE! dress

Now all was going so well until I got to this Jersey Wrap Dress. So two things about me. I really don’t do Jersey and I hardly ever do wrap dresses. Like ever. So though I loved the color I was nervous about this piece. I wasn’t surprised when it was just as I expected when I tried it on. Totally Bleh! I hate the length and there of course is no pockets not to mention jersey just shows everything. I have a slip and a tank dress underneath this and you can still see lines of everything. 
So here’s the deal. One of the great things with Stitch Fix is they offer you a 25% discount off your entire order if you keep all five pieces.
I loved the other four pieces but would pay so much more if I only bought those four. I calculated it up and realized if I bought all five pieces I would actually be getting this and another piece for free. So because of the credit I still had available and the amount I was saving with the discount I pulled the trigger and bought all five!
Now here’s where it gets interesting. I’m never going to wear this dress. It’s super comfy and cute but just not me. So I thought of my friends who might wear it and couldn’t come up with anyone that has the same size and so I’m offering it to one of you. 
That’s right one lucky reader get’s this dress just for reading about my fix!
So here are the deets: 
size – XS
designer/brand – Hourglass Lilly (Calafia Jersey Wrap Dress)
color: plum
