Fall is upon us! Ok, so it went from burning hot, humid, drippy summer to a few days of fall and immediately into “we’re getting a butt ton of rain” and possibly the remnants of some hurricane name Joaquin. So long fall, you were short, sweet, and a tease!
I did take some time to pin a few things this month as well, minding my note to the stylist as well. As always, she came through. I’d like to give a blogger shout out to my stylist this month, Leslie, for being the bomb dot com of my fix. This is the first fix I recall where I truly “liked” everything that came–from the colors and patterns–this was a great fix. Some fit issues kept me from keeping more, but I realize that everyone has a different shaped body.
Liverpool Reagan Skinny Pant- $88
Wanted to love. They fit but I felt like they were too skinny for me. I adored the pattern on these pants and I own another skinny leg pant from Gap but there was too much spandex in these or something.
Brixon Ivy Lawley Cable Knit Open Cardigan-$68
I adored this sweater. I love the color and knit that it had. The front lapels that melted into the pockets was amazing. The downfall of this sweater was where it laid on my body, right on my butt. When I caught view of myself in the mirror, I noticed it made my backside look bigger. I’m short so it may lay differently on someone who is a half inch taller or shorter.
Market & Spruce Fierro Elbow Patch Crew Neck Sweater-$58
This was a cute sweater. Lightweight black with adorable dark grey patches. It would have been great to wear over a collared shirt to make me the ultimate preppy professor. This sweater laid funny on my hips, hugging my middle and making me self-conscious. It was also a thin sweater, great for layering but I’m not sure if it was $58 worth of sweater. Super cute. If it laid nicer on my hips, it would have stayed no matter the price tag.
41 Hawthorn Kassidy Faux Wrap Dress-$68
This dress is perfect for multiple seasons and the pattern was super fun with a beautiful dark red/pink mosaic pattern. I wore this to teach in and received at least three compliments throughout the day. It’s a flattering length and opens just enough at the hem for a slimming effect. I wore this on a muggy fall day with a simple cardigan over it and didn’t need too much jewelry because of the pattern. I’m going to pick up some tights for cooler weather and wear it with short boots.
Market & Spruce Colibri Polka Dot Print Top-$48
I loved this top as well. It was really soft with a flattering collar. When I tried it on, it was too snug across the bust and shoulders, making it an automatic “return” item. I loved the pattern. The polka dots weren’t obnoxiously big and this would have worn well under a jacket for a complete outfit. I wanted this to fit! I was so excited when I peeked at my shipment.
Stitch Fix has been a great service for me. I can honestly admit that I’ve cut down on purchasing clothes in general and when I am at Target, I’ll think, “no, a box is coming soon” before I spend money on stuff I won’t wear or just wear a few times. I can honestly say I wear the crap out of my stitch fix pieces. I get compliments on them frequently and the clothes are always interesting and not things I would normally purchase.

No pressure either way. Stitch Fix doesn’t compensate me. I pay the $20 styling fee each month and appreciate what they send me.
