I've got some exciting news today! Not only do I have one of my very favorite fixes to share with you today, but I also have the good news that the waived styling fee promo has been extended through the month of January! If you are a new customer, sign up for Stitch Fix, and schedule your very first fix, you can get your styling fee waved. That's right. No $20 styling fee and worrying if you don't like anything then your $20 will be lost. So, if you've been wanting to try Stitch Fix (or been wanting to sign your husband up - that's right, there is Stitch Fix Men!) but you've been on the fence about it, try it, risk free! Click here to get your styling fee waved and schedule your fix!

And, while you're at it, ask Santa for a gift card to help you cover the cost of the items that you're going to want to keep (believe me, you're going to want to keep at least one!). Have a gift card mailed to your home, print it at home and include it with a greeting card, or have the gift card emailed directly to the recipient.

Try your first fix risk free!If you don't know what Stitch Fix is, let me tell you a little about it. Stitch Fix is basically a personal shopping service. First you fill out your online profile by answering some questions about likes/dislikes, style, sizing, price range, etc. Then you can write a note about what you're interested in as well as link a Pinterest style board to help your stylist know what you're looking for and what your style is. Your personal stylist will then gather some items that she thinks you'd like and sends them to you. You try them on in the comfort of your own home and decide what you do and don't want to keep and then you have three days to send back whatever you don't want. Easy peasy! The styling fee is normally $20 per fix, but is being waved for November if you are a new client. Normally if you send back all the items, you lose the $20. If you keep one (or more) items, they deduct the $20 styling fee from your total and you pay the difference. If you keep all five items, they deduct the $20 from the total and you get a 25% discount on all the items. Pretty great! If you're a new customer and you're interested in signing up, if you want to use my referral code then I'll get small credit to my account and will be forever grateful. As for future fixes, you can schedule them for as often or not as you want. You can auto schedule one to come once a month or you can do like I do and just schedule one when you want one. I usually get between 8-10 per year.

On to my fix!

41 Hawthorn | Jaycee Ribbed Hem Knit Top

THIS SHIRT!!! When I saw Desiree get this shirt in her fix a couple months ago, I wanted it. Everything about it is perfection. First of all, LOVE the color. It is like the perfect mix of pinkish cranberry and perfect for winter. It's light weight yet long sleeves which is perfect for Southern California winters where the weather can't decide if it's actually going to be cold or hot. And it is one of the most flattering shirts I've ever owned. I couldn't keep this piece fast enough.

Verdict: KEPT!

RD Style | Mckinley Ribbed Detail Pullover

This was another clear keeper right out of the box. First of all, I LOVE this deep green. It's gorgeous in person and perfect for fall and winter. And then when I tried it on, I loved how flattering it was. I don't know how they did it, but the way the sweater fell when it was on was perfect. I love the detailing on the hem as well as along the shoulder and under arm area. It is also light enough for California winters and thin enough to layer under jackets when it actually does get cold at night.

Verdict : KEPT!

41 Hawthorn | Kenton Ribbed Boatneck Pullover

This is one that I was on the fence about. I love the color gray and I love stripes and I thought the sweater was flattering, but it didn't scream "love" to me like the other two sweaters did. I thought, if I loved the other four items in my box, I'd keep it for the discount, but if not, then I'd send it back. It was cute, but something about the boatneck was throwing me off. Looking back, I do kind of regret sending it back.

Verdict : Kept for the discount and then sold (see below).

Urban Expressions | Valerie Convertible Satchel

Raquel gave me exactly what I asked for with this one and I wanted to love it because I love this style of purse, but there was something about it that I couldn't love. The color was gorgeous. That wasn't the problem. The main problem was that it didn't seem quite big enough inside for me and when I was using the long strap and not the handles, I didn't like how the handles fell, especially on the side that hit my body. Small annoyance, sure, but for the price, I wanted to love it. And I didn't.

Verdict : Kept for the discount and then sold.

Kut from the Kloth | Miles Skinny Jean

If you've been reading my Stitch Fix posts for any amount of time, you know that I'm obsessed with this brand. I seriously ask for KFTK jeans in EVERY fix and Raquel nailed it this time. THESE JEANS. They aren't quite my beloved Kut from the Kloth skinny jeans, but they are pretty amazing! These are actually unlike any other KFTK jeans that I've had because these are high rise. Ordinarily I didn't think I'd like that type of pant, but man is it flattering. They are a dark wash so they are already flattering and slimming, but the high rise pushes it over the top. Yes, $88 is a lot for jeans, but I've already worn these like 7 times since I got them a week and a half ago. #worthit


So, to sum it up, another AMAZING fix from Raquel! Seriously, she is amazing. I love that she reads my blog, sees the pieces on me, and also checks my Pinterest board to see what kind of things I'm liking. While this fix could have easily been a 5/5, I was trying to stay on sooooooomewhat of a budget and not buy the whole thing, so instead I kept my 3 most favorite items and took to the Stitch Fix Buy, Sell, Trade board on Facebook to see if anyone was interested in the 2 items I didn't want to keep so I could "keep" all 5 and get the discount. It worked and the 2 items I didn't want, I was able to sell. I passed on the discount to the buyers, got to keep my favorite items, and everyone was a winner! I should note though... I never do this. This is the first time ever that I've ever kept something just for the discount and sold it. Normally I just keep the items I love and send back the rest. Problem this time was that I REALLY wanted the 3 items I kept and I didn't want to pay $200 for them, so... problem solved :) I don't know how often I'll do that, if it all, but for me, it worked this time.

  1. I really like that bag! also love the shirts!

  2. Great fix!!! Good call on keeping it all and selling!

  3. That Jaycee top looks so cute on you and I adore that color! And that McKinley pullover is pure perfection. I love everything about it. That bag! I am so into that color this year. And I love that style. Bummer it didn’t work for you, though! That facebook group sounds pretty great! Glad you were able to get the discount and sell the two items you didn’t love.

  4. The two sweaters you kept look amazing on you- color & fit!! Too bad the waived fee is only for newbies, I want a new pair of Liverpool jeans!

  5. YESSSSS to all those kept. You know I love that burgundy top - I wear it all the time! And that green sweater is SO GOOD!!!
    I've juuuuuust started converting a few of my jeans to high rise. Um. Game. Changer.
    Solid call on keeping all five, and selling the two you didn't want, for the discount!
    Per the usual, Raquel nailed it.

  6. That ribbed hem top DOES look pretty amazing. What a great fix!

  7. Did the Green Mckinley sweater ever stretch out or shrink after wearing?
