My Third Stitch Fix Box Review!

This post may contain Affiliate Links. Thank you for your support!

I received another Stitch Fix in the box this week, and wanted to show you all what I got! I’m still trying to decide on one item and I’d love to know what you all think!

First of all, if you are not familiar with Stitch Fix, it’s a service where you can sign up, fill out a custom profile of what style you are, and then a stylist will personally pick out 5 different items to send to you in the mail. You pay $20 for the styling fee, but if you keep any item that $20 fee goes toward the item.

Every outfit comes with a styling card, that shows two different ways you can wear each item.

It’s not for everyone, but I especially love it for busy moms who can’t get out to shop for themselves a lot, or for those who just hate to shop! 

Here are 4 of the 5 items I received. I didn’t take pictures of the racerback top I received, it honestly made me look pregnant and I wasn’t interested in sharing the picture on here. Needless to say, it’s going back. 🙂

Don’t forget that you can pin any of these pictures on Pinterest if you have a Stitch Fix Pinterest board!

Skies are Blue Delila Embroidery Neckline Knit Top in Red color from Stitch Fix.

Skies are Blue Delila Embroidery Neckline Knit Top– $54.00

I love the cheerful colors of this top, and it goes with our Rainbow Denim Skirt so well. I thought about keeping it, but there was actually a small rip on a seam, and I just decided to send it back.

Gilli Sanora Knit Maxi Dress from Stitch Fix! This navy blue polka dot is really cute with a side tie, and comfortable knit top.

Gilli Sanora Knit Maxi Dress – $78.00

This navy blue polka dot is really cute with a side tie, and comfortable knit top. I added a cami under it, and the denim jacket. I love the polka dots, but didn’t feel it was as flattering for this mommy-of-six-children-with-mommy-tummy. I’ve realized I need a few gathers in a dress. Back it went.

Gilli Anwen Jersy Dress from Stitch Fix! This is a really cute summer dress, but it's shorter than what I like. You could put a skirt extender under it!

Gilli Anwen Jersey Dress – $64.00

This is the dress that I can’t decide if I should send it back or keep it! I’ve been trying to stay away from buying more black clothes (thanks to the Dressing Your Truth Program), but I love the style of this dress.

It’s much shorter than I would ever wear out. I cropped the picture, but you can get an idea of how short it is (a few inches above my knee). I’m trying to decide if I should get a skirt extender, or just send it back. What would you do?

A perfect find from my latest Stitch Fix Box! A Gilli Betheny V-Neck Maxi Dress in navy blue, with vibrant colors! It will be great in the fall and winter with a jean jacket!

Gilli Betheny V-Neck Knit Maxi Dress – $78.00

This was the awesome item that I’m totally keeping from my box! I love the colors, the fit, the length, really everything about it. 🙂 I had it pinned on my Stitch Fix Pinterest board, and my stylist saw it so she sent it along. Hurray for a good stylist!

So there you go! If you want to try Stitch Fix out, you can schedule a box here, and even select the date of when it will arrive!

 

Modesty and the Good Old Days (Is There Such A Thing?)

This post may contain Affiliate Links. Thank you for your support!

Oh the good old days. We all like to talk about them. Back when things were simple. You know, horse drawn wagons, living off the land, making your own clothes time period.

Modesty And The Good Old Days (Is There Such A Thing?)

And best of all? Everything and everyone was so pure and virtuous. We didn’t have things like Playboy magazines, affairs in marriages, immodest clothing to attract attention, or filthy language being used to describe how great a woman’s body looks.

Seriously? I jest.

It feels like the modesty standards are constantly being pulled backwards. If we could only dress like the ladies did in 1950’s, the world would be a better place.

But what about the ladies in the 1910’s? They would have considered the 1950’s clothing to be horribly immodest, and the ladies to be sinful. They were showing more legs and more arms in the 1950’s!

Scratch the 1900’s altogether, we need to dress like the pioneers did in the 1800’s! Admittedly, this was a more modest time period. But think back to the Regency time period of the 1700’s. If you have watched the classic Pride and Prejudice with Colin Firth, you know the dresses might have been maxi length, but plenty of cleavage is spilling out of those gowns!

prideprejudice

We don’t need to go back in time to dress modestly. Decent clothing standards weaves in and out of time, going back to the garden of Eden, when Adam and Eve made garments from leaves. Is that the most godly way to dress still, since it was done in the Garden of Eden?

Cultures dictate clothing. Styles change, and sometimes it’s not always a sinful thing. They just change style. Don’t overthink it, and don’t over spiritualize it. Find what is modest in today’s world, and wear it. Don’t feel like you have to dress like the prairie days, or the 1950’s, or the victorian time period to be modest.

We live and breath and move in in our times. Some people were alive when they first used horse and buggy as a child, and then died with an automobile in their garage. The world changes, and we change around it. We need to seek the Lord, find out what our own modesty standards are going to be, and not base it on modesty standards of 200 years ago.

If you wore a victorian swimsuit of bloomers and a swimming hat to the beach today, you would draw so much more attention to yourself than if you wore a cute swim skirt and a top. Or board shorts and a shirt.

Don’t fool yourself into thinking that history is always best. What you will end up doing is attract a lot of attention as you walk around in your prairie dress, and people will think that’s what Christianity is all about.

Live in the world, but not of it. Live in the culture, but not immersed in it. Live in the present time, but always hoping for the future, the return of our blessed Lord and Savior. Don’t go backwards. Keep your feet firmly pressed on the straight and narrow path, and walk on in your Christian life!

Happy 4th of July! I hope you have an awesome day celebrating the Birthday of America! We always have a huge day planned with our church, and my husband and brother in law are always the coordinators for it.
Blue Maxi Dress from Stitch Fix, with a Halftee Underneath!

I’ve shared this dress a few times on here before. It was the one item I kept from my last Stitch Fix box, and you can tell I wear it a lot! We had a family wedding we attended last night, so I wore it to the wedding.

Blue Maxi dress from Stitch Fix, with a short sleeve halftee! I wear my hair up in a halftee often, and having it curled and pulled up is great for summer months!

My sister and I sang together at church Sunday, which we had not done in quite awhile. I kept thinking of my mom, and imagining her beside us, singing her beautiful alto that blended so well. This month it will be 6 years that she passed away, and we all still miss her so much.

My June Stitch Fix Review

This post may contain Affiliate Links. Thank you for your support!

It’s been awhile since I requested a Stitch Fix Box, so this was super fun to get! I made sure and took pictures of everything I got to show you, even though I only kept one thing!

If you are not familiar with Stitch Fix, here is how it works! 

First thing you do is fill out your style profile. This gives your stylist ideas on how tight or loose you want your clothes, want pricing, sizing, and color preference you have. This is also the place you link to your fashion board on Pinterest, so your stylist gets an idea of what you like! I have a board just devoted to pinning Stitch Fix items.

Now you just order your fix! You have to pay a $20 styling fee, but that fee is refunded if you end up keeping any item in your box. I always keep at least one thing, so I don’t blow through $20. Every box comes with 5 items. Stitch Fix offers clothes, shoes, accessories, jewelry, but you can specify what you want. I don’t have anything checked on my profile beside clothing, but I might try some other categories at some point!

The box will show up in a few weeks (you can schedule when you want it to arrive, but it normally takes around 2-3 weeks for the stylist to put together you box, and it to arrive). You have 3 days to try everything on, and decide what you want to keep. A postage paid envelope is included, so it’s super easy to send back! If you keep all 5 items, you get 25% off your order!

So…now it’s reveal time! Please feel free to pin anything you like below, so your own stylist will see what you might like!

Collective Concepts Darcee Peplum Blouse – Medium – $58.00 – Returned
Floral Darcee Peplum Blouse by Collective Concepts from Stitch Fix.

I really liked this style and the print. The style card that was included said to pair this with jeans, so I picked a denim skirt to wear. However, it wasn’t terribly flattering (especially a side view). I could easily see people asking if I was pregnant while wearing this shirt, so it went back! I’m actively working on losing weight now, so once I get back down to a size small I’m going to try another Peplum top!

Market & Spruce Careen V-Neck Dolman Knit Top – Medium – $48.00 – Returned

I really liked the colors of this top and it was really soft. However, it really did *not* look flattering on me. Definitely made me look pregnant. *sigh* Having a 10 pound baby was so hard on my stomach muscles! It’s something I’m working on!

The top was also hot for a midwest summer, and I didn’t want to keep it for fall, because I’m hoping I’ll be back in a size small again! 🙂

Loveappella Swindle Lace Arm Knit Top – Medium – $58.00 – Returned

Loveappella Swindle Lace Arm knit Top in Black

Loveappella Swindle Lace Arm knit Top in Black

Isn’t that sleeve beautiful? I was tempted to keep this, because I love the lace sleeve! However, I’m wearing very little black now, thanks to a online program I recently through (review coming soon!). Plus, it just felt large on me. So..back it went! If you like black though, it is lovely, and very soft!

41Hawthorn Cameron Button Down Blouse – Medium – $58.00 – Returned

41Hawthorn Taeron Button Down Blouse

I liked the colors of this blouse a lot. However (you knew it was coming!), I didn’t think it was flattering. It sort of reminded me of a man’s top, which I really don’t like. The style card said to pair it with a white pair of pants, so I used a white skirt instead! Once again, it was really soft and I wanted to like this top. It just didn’t bring out a happy feeling in me, so back it went.

Loveappella Carmella Knit Maxi Dress – Medium – $78.00 – Kept!

Loveappella Carmella Knit Maxi Dress - Love this!

Maxi dress from Stitch Fix.

Halftee Short Sleeve, perfect for wearing underneath sleeveless dresses and shirts!

I loved, loved, loved this dress! It was definitely a keeper. I have very few dresses in my wardrobe right now, so I was really glad to see this included. It is soft, and flattering! I wore it with a short sleeve halftee, or a short sleeve denim jacket (the halftee was much cooler!). It was totally worth getting the whole box just to find this dress! I like that it can be dressed up with a nice necklace or shrug, or kept causal. A belt would probably look cute as well!

So there you have it! My June Stitch Fix box, and I’m already looking forward to the next one! You can schedule monthly fixes to come, but I just go in and schedule them for when I want them to come.

If you hate to shop, or have very little time to get out, this might be a good option! It’s not for those families who are on super tight budgets, but if you have a monthly clothing budget, or just really need to update your wardrobe with some good quality clothes, Stitch Fix is a great option!
