Stitch Fix--#2

**Warning--I interrupt my normal quilty posts for a Stitch Fix break** 

I came home from work on Monday and found a sight that made me second fix had arrived.  A little retail therapy in the comforts of my own home.  I quickly retreated to the bedroom to explore the contents of the box.

Lets just say the colors contained within the box made me as happy as the scrappy quilt on my bed.  Before I sorted through the colorful pile, I read the note from my stylist Raquel.

Kut From The Kloth Jonathan Skinny Corduroy 

I think I cringe every time I pick up a pair of jeans and see the word "skinny" in them.  I embrace who I am and "curvy" has always been a better adjective, but I digress.  I had visions of the pair of skinny jeans from my first fix, so with a big sigh I tried them on and to my surprise they fit.  Not only did they fit well but the dark gray color would fit into my wardrobe just right.  Had they been some sort of crazy bright color, I would have immediately put them in the go back bag as soon as I tried them on.

Hawthorn Gideon Polka Dot Sweater

Playing around on Pinterest, I have seen this sweater appear on several other blogs and thought it was cute.  However, I did not pin it.  I was super excited to see that Raquel had chose it for me.  It's heavier weight which will be super warm and fits in all the right ways. 

 Corduroy jeans and the Hawthorn sweater

 And the super coolest thing about the sweater?  It is reversible!  Two in one, I had to keep it.

Market & Spruce Lauderdale Knit Cardigan

I fell in love with this piece the second I saw the color and picked it up.  It is super soft and the turquoise would add a nice pop of color to any outfit.  If it had not fit, I probably would have had a complete meltdown.  Which would have been okay to do, since I was in the safety of my own room without any security guards to escort me out and tell me I'm making a scene.

Plus I was able to look in my closet to see if I had anything that would go with it, instead of assuming that I do and finding later, nope not a thing.

Look by M Sammie Plaid Infinity Scarf

I absolutely loved this scarf.  I hope this picture does it justice.  The colors were beautiful for fall and it was soooo soft.  If it had been a little bit cheaper in price it would have been hanging in my closet or around my neck as we speak.  But since I was sending the next item back I couldn't justify keeping it.  Honestly, I can probably find something a bit cheaper very similar the next time I go out.

Cool side story.  My daughter came home from school and said remember that scarf you got yesterday?  I was in class today and I said to my teacher, "Is that scarf from Stitch Fix?"  She said the teacher looked surprised and said, "Yes, how did you know that??"  Jen laughed and said my mom got it in the mail yesterday.  Good eye, baby girl.  Good eye.

Market & Spruce Sawyer Space Dye Dolman Sleeve Knit Top

I loved the deep burgundy of this shirt and the fabric was super comfortable.  My daughter's first comment when she saw me in it was, "Wow, mom, you look comfy."  However, it was a bit big on me.  It kind of hung like a tent and came almost down to my knees.  So with a sad look on my face I placed back into the bag to go back.

So, to my stylist, Raquel, I say, great job!  I was super impressed with my second fix.  Want a fix of your own?  Check out my first fix here and read about all of the coolness that is Stitch Fix.

This is so cool. When I saw the first picture I thought that you got fabric in the mail, and then it turned out to be clothes. They all look great on you!

I love reading about your Stitch Fixes! Thanks for sharing these. Man, I love that cardigan, and I love what you put with it. Being blond, I bet you totally rock that colour. And a reversible sweater? Who knew. Bonus. Yep you look great in the pieces you kept. I always cringe when I see corduroy, as I think it makes my thighs and butt look fat, never mind the skinny adjective in front of the jeans as well! They look terrific on you Tish. :-) Yeah, on your daughter's eye!!

I'm enjoying these posts. Who thought I'd be so interested in another person's blind-date clothing shipments? ha. I've been into plaid and scarves this fall too, so props to your willpower sending it back :) I also love funny little coincidences like you'e daughter's teacher's scarf.

You look great in your pics - yay for clothes you love! Those infinity scarves are really easy to make Tish and they are fast. I'm planning on making a few myself this winter. Enjoy your stylish new threads! :)
