Stitch Fix Review August 2015

Can you believe the summer is almost over??  The kids are heading back to school in just a couple weeks and I am so sad.  I love it when they are home!  Besides, who is going to help me with my Stitch Fix reviews when they are back at school :-)

This month's box just arrived and I decided to do another video.  I generally am not one to want to see myself on camera or share myself with the world so last month I felt totally strange doing an un-boxing video.  However, I got a lot of positive comments so I figured I could do it again.  Plus, I have become obsessed with watching other people's videos too so I want to contribute myself.  Here goes!
This time I added in some quick shots of me trying on the clothes.  Please have mercy on me.  I have zero knowledge on how to edit a video so I mashed these up together as best I could.

Here's my style card from this months' fix.  I love how personalized this service is. 

Okay so the clothes.  I accidentally sent back the items I didn't want prior to taking photos so I only have the pictures from the two items I kept.  I will go ahead and show you the style cards for the other items though.

Andrew Marc Cora Shift Dress, Size L, $78

 I just didn't like this dress.  It was a bit more tight that I am comfortable with and I felt like it was a bit plain.  If I am going to spend big bucks on clothes, I have to LOVE them.  I didn't love this.  Verdict: RETURNED

Renee C Lahna Printed Dress, Size L, $78

 This is a pretty cool dress and definitely had that "different" factor I was looking for.  However, it was too tight in the chest and was a little more snug all over than I would like.  The main problem though was the side seams.  They did not match AT ALL.  Not cool.  Not cool at all.  This shows poor quality and I certainly let Stitch Fix know when I reviewed the clothes.  Verdict: RETURNED

Papermoon Wynn Blouse, Size L, $48 (I think)

 This blouse was so-so but had a few issues that I can't live with.  One, it's super sheer so in my opinion it should have come with a cami to wear under it.  Second, the pockets on the breast look like some kind of strange exterior bra.  Un, no thank you.  Finally, it was snug in the arms and made me feel like I was wearing a straight jacket.  Verdict: RETURNED

Brixon Ivy Pinson Drape Cardigan, Size L, $48 (I think)

Don't you love this??!!  I think it's fantastic.  I have already worn it out during the day with just some jeans and a cami and then I have worn it to work with some dressier pants.  It's perfect.  It adds a layer of whimsy and romance to my wardrobe.  The style card has it paired with a dress and a colored shirt and I don't know if I'm that adventurous yet.  For now I will keep this styled over a white shirt.  Verdict: KEPT

Margaret M Emer Houndstooth Straight Leg Pant, Size L, $98

One word for these pants: Perfection.  These are the most comfortable and versitile pants I have ever seen.  They will be great in summer or winter, with casual shirts or a dressy blouse.  I love them.  I love them so much I have asked for them in every color and style they come in.  Victoria if you are reading this, SEND MORE EMER PANTS!  Verdict: KEPT

If you have ever thought about joining Stitch Fix, I highly recommend it.  I would also love it if you would use my referral link.  I am not affiliated with Stitch Fix in any way but if you sign up with my link, I get $25 off my next order.  Thanks!  Here is the link.
