Stitch Fix: March 2018 Review

My 22nd Stitch Fix showed up yesterday afternoon so I got right to trying the pieces on and taking photos! I feel like it’s been forever since my last Fix so I was excited to dive in. The colors and patterns in the box were totally on point for my taste…and look, the teal item even matches the accent pillows on our sofa:

Happy 3 Year Blogaversary To Me

Three years ago today I started this blog. I had been writing Brooklyn Orchids, my blog about orchids, for years, but I wanted to have a separate place where I could write about beauty products and other non-orchid-related things that interest me.

Stitch Fix: December 2017 Review

Happy holidays to me: my 21st Stitch Fix arrived on Friday evening! I couldn’t take photos on Saturday because we got our first snow of the season that day and the light in the apartment was too dreary. I enlisted my husband to photograph me on Sunday, so he gets photo credit.  🙂

You may remember that my last Stitch Fix was a bust, but the colors in my stack of clothing were promising this time: some jewel tones, a metallic, and a floral print!

Stitch Fix: September 2017 Review

Can you believe I received my 20th Stitch Fix this week?! I sure can’t! Prior to this Fix, I reviewed my style profile and made a few tweaks to make sure it best reflected my current preferences, especially since they recently added some premium designers to their offerings! I didn’t receive any pieces by the luxe designers in this Fix, but to be fair, I did check the box in my profile that says “mostly non-Luxe/occasional Luxe item.”

My stack of clothing this month was quite colorful!

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:

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.

Stitch Fix: February 2017 Review

My seventeenth (!) Stitch Fix arrived the other day and made for a very welcome distraction from packing up the apartment for our upcoming move to DC.

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:

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:

Stitch Fix: May 2016 Review

Spring is finally in full swing here in Brooklyn (took ya long enough, Mother Nature!), and my May Stitch Fix arrived last Friday to help outfit me for the warmer weather. My Fix was scheduled for May 17th, but it didn’t even ship until the 18th. They used to ship my Fixes so that I would receive them on or even sometimes before the scheduled date, but more recently they’ve been shipping them later. I asked them about this on Twitter and the response was a canned “The scheduled date is your estimated delivery date.” Maybe they just have so many subscribers now that they can’t keep up with them, which is a good problem for the company to have.

Anyway, here’s a peek at my fourteenth Fix: a nice variety of colors, patterns, and textures!
