When I first told you about Stitchfix, I told you how easy it is for me to get addicted to things.....
And it turns out, I became a Stitchfix addict. Over the last few months, I’ve gotten five fixes. Have I kept anything? Ummmm no. But partly because I didn’t care so much about the actual shopping part. I just really liked getting surprises in the mail. Whether I ended up getting anything or not, I loved every second of waiting for my package, tearing open my box, and seeing my mystery picks. And then there was always the fashion show around the office. Can’t beat that. 

If you missed my last post on the subject, you may be wondering...

What is stitchfix

Pretty much this:

Need a refresher on how it works?

Pretty much like this: 
Now that style profile is no joke. Stitchfix has all kinds of info about me on file. They know my sizes, my likes and dislikes, they even have links to my blog and pinterests boards. Plus I update my profile after each fix I receive, telling them what I liked and what I didn’t so they could nail it the next time. And when I found out I was pregnant, Stitchfix was pretty much second in line for the announcement (after Dustin.)

"Guess what! I'm pregnant....and you guys are among the first to know!!

I know you don't officially do "stitchfix maternity" but I was hoping you could help 
pull things that would have some longevity of use. Anything longer, stretchy, and/or without a formal constructed waist.... I'm still in my first trimester, so I'm not huge, but pieces that could grow with me a bit would be great."

That might seem a little personal...but it turns out I have a personal stylist. Her name is Margaret.

See? We're tight.
(I'm a little bit joking, but she did answer about a milllion of my questions via email this time around, so even if she has other clients, she's still very patient and attentive.

Since I haven’t kept anything (I came reaaaaaaally close, but couldn’t quite pull the trigger on any of them), I haven’t posted about it. BUT...this time? They got me. Each box comes with 5 pieces, and this last shipment had two items I was swooning over.

First, this emerald tunic:

(excuse the wrinkles. It will obviously never look like that when I wear it. ha.)

Pantone has officially named this the color of 2013, and I couldn’t be happier. I love this rich tone, the drapey rayon, and the roomy silhouette. (It might actually fit me for another two weeks!) I can see it mixing in with the multitude of blues and neutrals that I already own, and will be an easy layer piece. It seems super versatile, plus, it’s perfect with a scarf. Sold. Wait....almost....because we have this contender too: 

Cream and tan polka-dot sweater with open knit back.

You guys. I pretty much die over this sweater. I don’t know what it is that has me so transfixed (oooooh stitchfix pun, yes!) It might be the super soft fabric, or the tiny knit dorito (seriously, that’s what it’s called) at the neck, or the striped cuffs....Or it could be the itsy bitsy dot pattern, or the beautifully stitched back panel. Or the roomy silhouette (for real....girl needs a little extra space these days).

I love them both, but was completely torn over which to keep. So naturally I took to facebook and instagram for advice. 

30 some comments later green was the clear winner with the masses....but I was still torn. I actually have to return the box today and I’m still not sure what I'll keep. I might just say "Happy Early Birthday to Me!" and keep them both. Tempting.....

{Edited to add...kept the green. I'll miss you dot sweater.}

I DID. I did love my fix!

Now go get yours!


  1. Funny How you were eyeing the second one @ Rosewood :) I guess it was meant to be! I hope you kept that cozy number!

    1. I know!!! It was fate...I couldn't believe it!!

      I actually looked at your site to see if you still had it. No such luck though. :(

  2. knit dorrito. oh my. I'll forever cherish this new fashion phrase.
    the emerald tunic was a great fix to keep. can't wait to see what's in the next box!

    1. See? Stick might learn something! :)
      (Now you're waiting for the fashion equivalent of a crunch wrap supreme, aren't you? Aren't we all.....)
