Y’all I’m on a freaking roll with the workouts right now, if you consider one week some kind of long-term commitment. I think it’s because I’m keeping them short and sweet. Yesterday I ran 2 miles of sprints around the gym.
Today I did some squats, lunges, bicep curls, and abs. I basically had no game plan and it kind of showed. But at least I did something, right?
Moving on. Let’s discuss the fact that I got sucked in to playing dress up again. I honestly thought that my first Stitchfix (<-affiliate link) experience would be my only one. I’m not going to lie, it was fun to have clothes sent to me. At the same time, though, I wasn’t sure that it was a totally worthwhile endeavor.
Then I wore the crap out of the two items I purchased, a dolman top and the best pair of skinny jeans I’ve ever owned. I also realized that I hadn’t really gone shopping for clothes since I got my last “fix”. I’m not sure that’s a causal relationship, but I do think that it means I might have a few dollars to play around with in the budget when it comes to clothes. So, yeah. I bit the bullet and ordered another fix. I couldn’t resist. I’m just not that strong, y’all.
This time, I asked for a shipment of “summery” dresses and tanks and another pair of skinny jeans. I do like that part of the process. They make it really easy to say what you did and didn’t like in the first fix, as well as allow you to request certain items in the next one. Is this what it feels like to have a personal shopper? So freakin’ fancy. I’m basically Iggy Azalea at this point.
I’m going to warn you in advance: these are terribly grainy pictures. Maddux wasn’t a huge help in shooting these. Apparently toddlers don’t want to help with lighting and focus. Whatever.
The first thing I took out of the box was a pink infinity scarf. It’s nice, but I think I could find it cheaper elsewhere. That being said, there is a “styling fee” for Stitchfix that is applied to whatever you order. If you choose zero of the items, you have to take that fee as a loss. So, I’d keep the scarf if I didn’t find anything better. I ain’t throwing away money, y’all.
Next up was a loose, grey tank. The back is much cuter than the front, but I still don’t know that I’m 100% sold.
Then came a rockin’ mini-dress, which was obviously made for me.
Just kidding. It’s just a super long tank paired with what I’m now thinking my be too short of shorts. There is a cool slit in the front of the shirt, but I’m assuming it was meant for someone with cleavage. Barkin’ up the wrong tree, guys.
Then I pulled out the jeans I requested. Unfortunately, I was hoping for something a little more colorful. These could be nice with boots in cooler weather, but they don’t scream “you need these now!” to me.
And then, finally, the dress. I have to be honest, I’m still a little bummed this isn’t a brighter color but that’s not enough to completely kill it for me. One question, though. Is chevron over? I feel like that’s the biggest potential downside here.
And there you have it. Now, just like last time, I need your help. What should I keep, if anything? I intentionally didn’t put prices because I want your opinions based on the items alone. If you want to know how much a specific item costs, though, I’ll totally fill you in. Just let me know.
