Stitch Fix: June 2017 Review

My 19th Stitch Fix arrived in the mail on Friday, so I did a little fashion show and enlisted my husband as photographer yesterday afternoon. When I opened the box I was excited to see a variety of colors and patterns inside:

Friday Five

1. Kogod Courtyard: last Saturday my husband and I did a date night downtown. We started off by visiting the National Portrait Gallery, then had a drink at Dirty Habit and dinner at The Smith (both of which were great, BTW). The museum was wonderful and I want to go back to explore more, but my favorite part was this unbelievable courtyard topped with a wavy glass and steel ceiling! The room reminded me of the DUC (Dobbs University Center) at Emory, which is a building constructed around a historic building at the center of campus. This beautiful courtyard had a very peaceful vibe…I must return.

Stitch Fix: April 2017 Review

Today happens to be my six-week anniversary of moving to Washington, DC, so receiving a box from Stitch Fix felt like a good way to mark the occasion!  🙂  You may remember that my last Fix was a complete bust, but I didn’t let that turn me off.

Happy New Year! I don’t know about you, but I’m thrilled that 2016 has been laid to rest and am ready to get this year rolling. The sooner we can get Trump in AND OUT of office, the better.   🙂

1. Stella & Dot Icon Convertible Watch: I actually ordered this watch more than a month ago but completely failed to post about it. I had been wanting to get a watch for quite some time, and when I saw that Stella & Dot was offering this one at a deeply discounted price—$49 instead of the usual $148—I had to have it. (This watch is currently on sale for $88.80, still good deal.) And I love it! It comes with a gold and a silver bezel for the face plate so you can switch it out depending on your mood. Cute!

Stitch Fix: November 2016 Review

My latest Stitch Fix arrived this past Saturday—a few days early—to brighten my mood after the dreadful election outcome last week (#ugh #notoverit). This Fix is number sixteen for me; my calculator tells me that means I’ve received 80 items total from Stitch Fix since I first signed up (though I haven’t kept every single piece)!

My box came filled with seasonally appropriate shades, patterns, and textures:

Rent the Runway: Nicole Miller Black Venice Dress

I attended a wedding in Williamsburg last weekend and decided to rent another dress from Rent the Runway for the occasion rather than buying something new or wearing something old from my closet. After spending many hours browsing RTR’s website (which is enjoyable in and of itself!) for the perfect dress, I settled on the Nicole Miller Black Venice Dress, a beautiful lace piece with cutouts.

Stitch Fix: August 2016 Review

It is HOT HOT HOT here in Brooklyn—according to my weather app it currently feels like 106°F outside—and when it’s that hot out I just go NOPE and sit my ass inside, in the AC. Fortunately, my August Stitch Fix box arrived yesterday to help keep me occupied during this self-imposed heat lockdown. This is my fifteenth Fix and it actually arrived almost a week early; I had scheduled it for August 18th but it arrived on the 12th!

Here’s a sneak peek at the goodies my stylist picked out for me this time around:
