It's Fix time!
I tend to schedule my Stitch Fix boxes about every six weeks, and usually around a special event or trip.  It is pretty awesome that you can choose the specific date you want your Fix to arrive!  

This time around I was looking for a some fun pieces for an upcoming trip to Spain -- items that could hopefully also transition into the fall season!  

My stylist Hilary delivered and sent me some fun, bright, unique choices -- and a fab pair of jeans!

#1 Uribe Pleat Detail Top (Papermoon)
I think this peplum tank is super cute, with such a darling floral print.  It could even work for fall under a lightweight cardi, with jeans and booties.   The only downside was the fit.  You see that I cinched it with a belt, as otherwise it billowed out and had an odd boxy fit.  It either needed to be tighter on top...or I need considerably larger boobs.  The latter is not going to happen, so...RETURN. 

2. Gonzalez Double Strap Tank (Pixley)
3. Tory Distressed Ankle Zip Skinny Jean (Pistola)
4. Maci Metal Lace Cuff (Kevia) 
This tank I thought I would not like when I initially opened my Fix, as it looked boxy and basically ill-fitting. kinda made me happy wearing it!  Soft material, billowy yet with the hi-lo cut it is sort of flattering, and a bright print.  The thin double straps and v-neckline add a little flair. Something about this tank is fun!  I'll probably return it, but you never know!
These skinny jeans are adorable - a great wash, just the right amount of distressing, very soft/stretchy, and the zippers!  Oh, the zippers!  The zippers at the ankles are fabulous.  The perfect skinny jean.  You know, if you love skinny jeans.  I just don't love skinny jeans given my ample, child-bearing hips.  Plus, I already have three pair in different washes that are just just fine for when I need them. However, if you are a skinny-jeans loving gal, you should request these Pistola jeans from your stylist!!!!  I returned these, though, as I need a slightly looser fit jeans, Hillary!!!!!
I said I'd be okay with a statement bracelet or ring in this fix, and so I was sent this metal lace cuff.  I am okay with it, but I wasn't in love.  I'm more of a minimalist, beads/stone, or leather kind of jewelry girl.  The sparkly lace detail of this cuff is a little much for me -- and it kept sliding around, which was bothersome.  This was an definite return.

#5 Glenice Cold Shoulder Blouse (Collective Concepts) 
I had requested a fully off-the-shoulder top; however, when I saw this cold-shoulder blouse I knew I had to give it a chance!  The ruby color is BEAUTIFUL, and will transition to fall easily with the longer sleeves.  I can see this with black skinny jeans or leather leggings and heels for a night out, or with blue jeans, booties and felt hat as I wear in these pics.  This was my definite keep from this Fix -- I am in love with this top!
Whenever I have a Fix photo shoot to do, my babes inevitably want to join in on the fun!   
Are you interested in getting your own Stitch Fix box, delivered to your doorstep with five pieces hand-picked by a stylist based on your requests and fashion profile?  It is really fun, ya'll.  The stylist fee is $20, but that is credited to whatever you decide to keep.  Another great thing is that it sometimes forces you out of your comfort zone, giving you options that you may never have picked up a store.

Just make sure you try on everything in your box, at least twice, to get a feel for whether or not it is something you would enjoy wearing!  Sometimes you know right away, and other times you need a bit to dwell on what direction you want your wardrobe to go.

You get three days (sometimes a bit more) to try on your items with the rest of your wardrobe and decide what looks best and feels best on your figure, then you just put what you don't want in the provided envelope and mail it back.  Easy!  Fun!  Try it for yourself by clicking the link below!
