Stitch Fix #2

What is it?

A stylist picks out 5 items specifically for you based on a style profile you fill out as well as a "note" you can send to your stylist.

The cost is $20 for the stylist, but is credited for any item you keep.

Whatever you don't want, you send back in the prepaid envelope.

If you keep everything, you get a 25% discount, which usually makes one or two items free!

I received my second Fix on Friday and was so excited to try everything on! I specifically asked for longer shirts and tunics to wear with leggings, and some clothes for an interview, as well as a specific purse I've been eyeing for a few months.

Look at all the pretty colors!

The green shirt was too big, but lovely. I sold it to a girl on Facebook.
The burgundy shirt had the prettiest sleeves, but was too short for my torso. Sold this one.
The purse was not the one I asked for, and too small for my needs with lots of kids. Sold it too!

What is Stitch Fix? Review #1

Today I got my very first stitch fix and I'm so excited! First of all, what is it?

It's a monthly subscription clothing box. You pay $20 for a stylist to pick out some clothes for you based on height, preference, what you post on your Pinterest board, etc. They send you 5 items to try on at home with things you already own and you can pick whatever ones you want to keep. The $20 works as a credit toward anything you keep. You send back the rest and wait for your next box!

I decided to try this out because I don't really have stores for clothes shopping in my area. Plus, it's fun!

Okay, here is what I got in my first box:

They always send this cool styling card to show how to wear the clothes.

Don't mind my crazy face. These are the Mavi Freida Skinny Jeans.

Paired with the Pixley Tracy Dot Print Cross Back Knit Top

Added my jacket and the Octavia Jolene Zipper Flap Crossbody Bag.

Then I decided to pair with a skirt and …

Smart shopping to buy Frye boots

Long time no see!

Well, I've been eyeing some boots for a year and a half. They are designer, name brand, expensive boots. It's snowy and wet and wintery where I live for at least 4 solid months (sometimes 6) out of the year. I think this deserves a quality pair of real leather boots that will last me at least 10 years. Let's not talk about the price right now.

In an effort to afford my boots, I am doing a month long "eat out of the pantry" challenge starting tomorrow, February 13th - March 13th. If I can cut my grocery budget by $75/mo, I can afford my boots if they are on sale and I can find a coupon code. :)

I will be allowed to purchase fresh fruits, vegetables, and dairy products (milk, butter, etc).

Breakfasts will be oatmeal, cereal, toast, eggs, etc.
Lunches are usually sandwiches, leftovers, quesadillas, macaroni, and ramen.

Dinner ideas for the next month:

13 - Marinated Pork loin, mashed potatoes, peas
14 - Leftovers or Sandwiches
15 - Tacos
