March Stitchfix Review

I signed up for Stitch Fix in January and recieved my first box in February.

If you haven’t heard of Stitch Fix, you pay a $20 styling fee to have the box created and shipped to you, but the $20 gets applied as a credit towards anything you buy.

 Unfortunately, I was a little disappointed with my first one.  Most of the stuff didn’t fit.  I only kept one top, but I figured I would give it another try.  I went on the site and adjusted my sizes a little, left a couple of notes, and updated some of the items I had pinned on my Pinterest board.

And that made a world of difference!  My second box came two weeks ago, and I was thrilled with it!  There were 2 dresses, 2 tops, and 1 necklace.  I really love that in each box, not only do they send the items, but they send “style cards” with suggestions on how to wear the items.

This maxi dress is SO comfortable.  Plus it has wider straps so I can wear a normal bra with that. If you are “well-endowed,” you’ll understand why this is a big deal lol!  This is going to be a go-to piece this summer.

Sorry for the lack of quality— I forgot to take one with my good camera

I was surprised by how much I loved this top.  I think it really helped that they provided the “style card” for this item otherwise I would’ve never thought to wear it like this.  I am a little skeptical of wearing leggings as pants anyway, but this was long enough that it covered my rear so I didn’t feel as exposed.

I really loved this dolman-sleeve top.  I actually sent it back and I am really regretting that decision.  I knew I was keeping the maxi dress and the other top, so I couldn’t justify the price, especially because it will be warming up soon and I won’t get much wear out of it this season.  I am definitely going to be hunting for something similar come fall.

DSC_0832 This necklace was also in my box.  I liked it, but I find I really don’t wear necklaces a whole lot.   I made a note of that for the next box, so I am hoping they send me some earrings or a ring or something.

There was also another dress in the box, but it wouldn’t even come close to zipping, so it went back.  I have already scheduled my April fix, so stay tuned for a review about it in the upcoming weeks.

What do you think of my items?  Have you tried Stitch Fix?  If you haven’t and are interested in it, they are all about referrals, so I would LOVE it if you used this link: https://www.stitchfix.com/referral/3401437!

***I doubt I have to note this, but just in case, this is in no way a sponsored post.  Stitch Fix has no idea who I am other than just another customer.  I am just sharing my personal experience with it. 🙂

Five On Friday

Hey y’all! Just in case you missed it, it’s Friday! Which means the weekend is just mere hours away. And even though I’m always excited about the weekend, I am more so than usual today because my hubby and I are headed to Raleigh to see some great friends (including my lovely friend Ashley from Sweet Carolina Belle) and go to a Hurricanes game!

{ONE} I love board games.  We are having a game night with a group of friends while we are in Raleigh.  We just got this game and I can’t wait to play it!

{TWO} I can’t believe I’m admitting this, but I am becoming an Apple lover.  I got an iPhone a few months ago, and I thought that would be the extent of my Apple products, mainly because my hubby is a computer nerd and doesn’t care much for Apple.  He surprised me this past weekend by getting me the iPad Air! I am loving it so far! {The public flogging can commence now…}

{THREE}  Speaking of which, since I am a clutz, it is essential that I adequately protect any fragile items like my phone or iPad, however I can’t stand to pay the prices most places charge for cases so I went straight to Amazon.  I found this case after just looking at a few and I knew it had to be mine:

{FOUR} I love reading blogs {that’s what inspired me to start my own} and one of my favorites is Fit and Feminist.  She wrote two great posts this week that you should definitely check out: Lay off the Women in Tutus and Enough with the Elitism in Fitness.

{FIVE} I think Target managed to sum up my entire relationship with my hubby in two wall decorations.  I almost bought both of them.

Book Worm

This past weekend, I broke a rule of mine and went to see a movie based on a book before I had actually read the book.  I normally try to read the book(s) before I go see the movie version.  But I had a chance to go see Divergent with my sister, her husband, and my husband, so I took it.

  

I really enjoyed the movie, and it peaked my interest to read the books, probably because if I read them, then I know what will happen and I don’t have to wait for the rest of them to come out.  I downloaded the trilogy onto my Kindle App (you can get it for free on both Android and iTunes} on Saturday night, and well, I have barely been able to put it down.  I read the first one, Divergent, in less than 24 hours, but that was mainly because I was at my in-laws all day Sunday while my hubby worked on fixing their internet issues, so I couldn’t watch TV, stalk people check out Facebook, or work on the blog.   I finished the 2nd book {Insurgent} on Tuesday, and I finished Allegiant last night.

I haven’t read a good book in a while, and now I am on the hunt for some good books to read since I finished this series.  So I thought I would share a few of my favorite books {which as I made this list, I realized that almost every one of them have been or will be turned into a movie. Maybe I need to read broaden my horizons}.

{ONE}

The Hunger Games Trilogy // Team Peeta!

{TWO}

Moloka’i // very interesting to learn some of the history behind this Hawaiian island, even if the characters themselves were fictional

{THREE}

Safe Haven // The town of Southport, that the main character moves to, is just a short drive from where I live

{FOUR}

The Shopaholic Series // the books are WAY better than the movie

{FIVE}

The Giver // I’m actually going to reread this soon as it has been so long since I read it, and the movie comes out in August

What are some of your favorite books? I would love to hear your recommendations!
