My email tells me that my September Stitch Fix box is on its way which reminded me that I never wrote a review of the last box I received.
My last Stitch Fix arrived at the end of July and as you may or may not know I spent most of July, August and September deciding that I had no words to write. I also spent a good majority of those months eating all the things in all the restaurants from Virginia to Pennsylvania to New York to Texas so I'm not sure any of these items would fit me anymore. :/
This was not my favorite box, but I did keep a couple of things. I have talked to quite a few friends lately and the opinion of Stitch Fix is definitely mixed. Some hate it and have never liked a single piece that they've received. Some love it and very often keep all five pieces.
I am in the middle. Needless to say I love clothes. I also love the little surprise of getting a box on my door step every other month. Of course, I've got that joy, joy, joy, joy down in my heart from Jesus but sometimes, I feel like Jesus sends me the perfect fun top just when I'm feeling kind of low because He loves me, this I know, for the Bible tells me so. Anyway, generally the fact that the $20/month fee is lost unless put toward a purchase is motivation enough for me to usually keep one piece at least. All that to say that Stitch Fix and I are sticking it out for a while longer.
Of the five items this time, two were more geared toward fall and those are the two I kept. Perhaps it was because when I got this box at the end of July, Virginia was suffering temperatures the likes of which would have made the Heat Miser have to take a knee. For that reason, I was looking forward with great optimism to a time when I wouldn't feel like I was going to burst in to flames outdoors and the more fall-ish items appealed to me.
Here are the items in no particular order.
Papermoon Lupita Cross-Back Top
This top was just really pretty. Pretty colors, pretty style. It was a silky or rayon-y material if I remember correctly which was a little too dressy for my August schedule of events which included watching Joe play golf, shopping for faucets at Home Depot and the aforementioned sweating bullets.
So basically, I thought this was really pretty and it fit well, but I didn't keep it because for everything there is a season and this top and I were not destined to be together in a time such as this.
Bay to Baubles Alle Stone Teardrop Earrings
These are cute earrings. I didn't keep them. I'm still looking for some everyday gold earrings that don't have any color on them. I have worn the same silver hoops for years and years and am just now branching out into gold earrings every once in awhile. This is a process I need to take slowly. It's not as if I can just go full throttle into gold and gem stones at one fell swoop. I just didn't see me actually wearing these that often.
good hYOUman Teighlor Slim Fit Drawstring Jogger Pant
When I first pulled these "joggers" our of the box, I couldn't quite wrap my head around jogging in them. First they are too cute to be worn for actual exercising. Second, like I mentioned, it was so hot when I received this box that the mere thought of jogging made me want to pour a bucket of ice over my head. So, I changed the name to "bloggers" or "College Football Watchers" and went ahead and tried them on. They are crazy comfortable and so soft. I kept them and plan to spend an enormous amount of time in them this fall while I watch other people jog on tv.
Here's the side view that I wanted you to see because a lot of yoga/sweatpant styles these days are so low rise that there is always a risk of everyone seeing London, France and Your Underpants when you lean over to tie your shoe or pick up the bag of Tostitos you dropped on the floor while you were cheering for the Longhorns. These are not too low. They're pretty perfect.
Street Level Mila Suede Fringe Crossbody Bag
I really thought I liked fringe, but I've received a few items with fringe from Stitch Fix and I'm just not feeling it. This fringe would probably graze against my leg and make me feel like a mosquito was buzzing around me. I don't love the color. I like mint in my chocolate chip ice cream but not on my person. I sent this back.
Renee C Thisbe Colorblock Open Draped Cardigan
Well, that's it. I think my new box should be here any minute.

Have a great day!
