Today I got a special surprise in the mail – my first Stitch Fix! It’s a subscription style service that sends you a box full of goodies once a month, depending on your style and price preferences. You can get super specific with your preferences or choose “I want to see it all!”
I’m always wanting to try something new, but constantly stuck in the same old ruts, so getting a box full of goodies picked out just for me everything month is a great way for me to break out, while still being able to send back anything that isn’t really me.

This afternoon I came home to a box with these beauties:

  • Line and Dot Embroidered Silk Top $66
  • Ladakh Floral Lattice Back Tunic Dress $118
  • BB Dakota Red Stripe Maxi Dress $105
  • Charlie Jade Strapless Silk Dress $98
  • David Aubrey Turquoise Spike Necklace $75

So much fun stuff! Unfortunately, the tops and dresses ran a little big (which was completely my fault and I’ve updated my size profile – oops!), so I’m sending them back this time, but I’m already ready for another box! The silk top was by far the cutest, and I loved the maxi too – if only they were a tiny bit smaller. The floral tunic and the silk dress didn’t fit my body as well as I would like, and the fabrics weren’t my favorite, but this stylist was definitely on the right track. The necklace was fabulous, but the gold was just a little too yellow for me… I’m a little neurotic about gold. It has to be just the right shade. Overall, I was extremely pleased and will be requesting a new box soon!

You pay $20 which becomes a credit toward any of the items in your box.  Although I didn’t keep any this time, I’m very happy with the experience and am excited to try again. I’ll keep you posted!

Preppy, classic clothes are always the first thing I’m drawn to. The clean lines, the timelessness; they get me every time. One of my goals this year is to start accessorizing more, adding a bit of pizzazz to my wardrobe. I love these classic looks with a bit of a modern touch.

Being a week or so into the new job, I’ve got work on the brain constantly. Luckily, this translates over to fashion more often that not. One of the gals in our office had the most lovely chartreuse silk blouse on Friday, and it made me crave a beautiful flowing piece for my own wardrobe.

I don’t think I can chose just one.

Another day in court. Another day of jury duty. I take my duty very seriously, but must admit my mind does occasionally wander. I’ve been pondering the style of the lawyers a bit. One a man, simply dressed in a basic suit. The other, a woman, whose outfits vary a bit more from the suit options. I tend to dress a bit more formal for my office usually, although working in the retail industry I try to add a touch of trend. But if I had to maintain a certain presence in court?
I might lean this way:

The lovely ladies of the office and I were chatting the other day about prints, as two of them showed up in some fabulous leopard pieces. I’ve never been particularly adventurous when it comes to prints, except maybe a smattering of stripes and checks, but I’m hoping to branch out a bit this year.
Husband, on the other hand, is quite great at trying new patterns and is always getting me to push my boundaries. I’ve been perusing his Pinterest for ideas and have my fingers crossed that one of these is in the wrapped pile of boxes in the corner of our living room.
