My stylist, Hayley, worked extra hard on my Fix this time. She emailed to let me know that my Fix would be a few days later than the expected day because she was working on getting me a few specific items. This wasn't a big deal at all, except for the fact that I was leaving on a 6 am flight back to Texas the next day to finish up things with the move and if the Stitch Fix items didn't work out I was going to have a hard time returning them in the allocated time frame. I contacted customer service about the potential issue and they wrote back that they would extend my return date by a week.
Turns out, I didn't need the extension. I do believe that I have my first 5/5 Fix.
I switched up my style profile this time around--I checked that I loved all styles, wanted to try every style and to just surprise me. Hayley did her research, though. In her note she mentioned my blog and how she read that I liked black tops with a unique twist.
Jarred Lace Detail Cap-Sleeve Blouse
I love this blouse. The material is a poly-rayon mix that is heavier and the lace detail is fantastic. It zips up the back, has a great neckline and is easily dressed up or down. My normal medium seemed to run a little big, but I like my tops to be a little longer/looser. If you like your tops to be more form fitting I would recommend sizing down.
This top was a definite keeper for me. To be perfectly honest, most of my wearable, every day wardrobe consist of black tops and jeans so I'm always up for adding new ones in. I styled it with skinny jeans from Express, black pointy toe stilettos, a ring (available to be requested in a styled box from Redbird Vintage) and a bangle set available to purchase from Redbird Vintage Box.

Skies are Blue
Hayley said that she tried to focus on a boho/vintage vibe for my Fix, and this dress for sure encompasses that. I love it.
The crochet top is a great detail, it's long enough to be classy but still short enough that the shift style isn't frumpy. Love the color, length, cut, fit...everything. A definite keeper.
I styled the dress with some gold & tan wedges from Nine West, a bangle set from Redbird Vintage Box (we're obviously obsessed with bangles right now) and a Mala necklace that was made by Shinseina Jewellery.
The owner of Shinseina Jewellery, Lise, and I had several emails back and forth. She personally hand makes all the necklaces for each individual and uses antique & reclaimed materials. I had let her know that I was really stressed out about moving and feeling completely unconnected from my kids and friends because I had so much on my mind. The beads in my necklace reflect my request for balance & patience. I love it and wear it often. She is adorable, sweet and professional. Contact her via her shop's Facebook Page to purchase your own Mala.

Denise Bootcut Jean
I had peeked at my Fix and wasn't thrilled to see denim in there. I've never had luck with Stitch Fix jeans. My luck changed with these.

Guys. I know that wearing the same pair of jeans for 3 days straight is gross. I totally realize that. BUT...I just have to say that these jeans withstood the test of turning cruddy after a couple wears. The material has a bit of stretch and even after wearing them to the movies on Tuesday, on a 3 hour/6 am flight Wednesday, on an 8 hour car ride Thursday and then on ANOTHER 8 hour car ride Friday THEY STILL LOOKED AMAZING! I'm almost scared to wash them. I'm obviously keeping them. I do need to point out that Hayley mentioned that these were a long, and they fit me totally normal. I'm 5'8 and typically wear a regular length for jeans that I plan to wear with sneakers/sandals and a long if I want to wear heels. These hit me at the perfect length for flat shoes but would be way too short with heels, so I wouldn't necessarily consider them to be long. They are, however, perfect for what I need.
Market & Spruce
I always ask for tunics so I was happy to see this one in my Fix. I have one extremely similar (and the exact same color) that I got from Golden Tote a few months ago so even though I really like it and love the style, it'll be up for sale or trade on the Stitch Fix boards. The material is a little thicker so it isn't sheer and the I love the gold button details.
I accessorized with skinny jeans, black booties, a thin black belt with a gold buckle and a bangle set from Redbird Vintage Box. Love this color and cut, just can't justify having TWO maroon tunics with gold accents.

Lex Textured Knit Dress
I'm not typically a fan of fit & flare dresses. I've never quite gotten rid of my "mommy tummy" so I don't like anything that hugs too tight. I do, however, LOVE the colors and pattern of this dress. It is really comfortable and the pattern makes it really forgiving (or at least more forgiving than a normal fit & flare dress).
I accessorized with the same Nine West wedges, a thin gold belt, a large tan vintage clutch (similar HERE) and a gold tone locket (still available) from Redbird Vintage Box.
I'm a fan and I'm pretty sure it's a keeper. This was my husband's favorite item from this Fix and I trust his opinion :) It is for sure a fun dress and I love the vintage style pattern.
