Keeping busy and another Fix

Hi there…

Since cutting Facebook ties, I’ve literally felt a monstrous weight off my shoulders. I’ve had more time to work on NEW projects for my shop and soon I’ll be debuting them. My shop’s main focus has always been centered on Military Pride, and I’m working on introducing some organizing tools that will help military families, civilian families too, keep things tidy on a day-to-day basis. I’m really excited to share them with you… stay tuned.

Speaking of organizing. I’ve been doing a lot more of it. I’ll be posting about that, hopefully, this week. Since we’ll be PCSing (Permanent Change of Station, a grand ol’ military acronym for moving) at the end of the year, we, and I really mean I, need to make sure we’re as prepared as possible.

Our little guy is growing up far too quickly, as they do. He doesn’t say much but he is plum full of mischief. He’s enjoying preschool and loves his teachers a ton.

My fourth fix arrived a bit later than usual this month because of a technical problem, but once it did arrive, I was very happy with it.  On to the Fix.

First up: A beautiful 41Hawthorn Wren Vintage American Flag Scarf. I mentioned in a previous post how my Stitch Fix stylist has been telepathic, well she was yet again. I had literally been eyeing scarves like this. When I opened my Stitch Fix box, I was thrilled to see one inside. 🙂 What I absolutely love about this scarf is it isn’t just an American Flag printed randomly on the scarf.  It’s actually a full American flag.  Love Love LOVE it. I’ll definitely be wearing it this weekend for the 4th of July.

Verdict: A DEFINITE keeper. How could I not? At $28.00, it’s about the same price I’ve paid for other scarves.

Next: Kensie Jeans Kaleigh Ankle Biter Skinny Jean. While I would have never picked these up for myself, once I put them on, I absolutely loved them and I have far too many pair of standard ol’ blue jeans so why not a bright red pair. Kensie Jeans are great too. They have the perfect amount of stretch to them.

Verdict: Another keeper. At $88.00 they are worth every penny because they’re made well and will be worn for years.

Up next: Papermoon Shea Striped French Terry Dress. When I pulled this dress out of the box I thought, “umm, this is going to look horrible” but it didn’t. It was super cute on and oh-so-comfy. I’ve already worn it. I dressed it up a little with one of my scarves and wore it to a retirement last week.

Verdict: Needless to say I kept it of course.  At $48.00, I couldn’t send it back.

Next: Papermoon Nellie Daisey Print Top. Another one I would have never picked of a rack for myself. The print would have been a bit to flowery for me it hung on the hanger a little too frumpy to me. Once I put it on over a little cami and my Level 99 Selena Skinny Jeans, it was the perfect outfit for a casual day out.

Verdict: Yet another keep that I’ve already worn. At $44.00 it was a little more than I would have usually paid for a tank, but I liked it enough to not send it back.

Next: Pomelo Dido Mixed Print Knit Top. This one was a beauty, adorable on, and so comfortable.  Sadly, when I was taking pics for this post, I noticed a snag on the back. BUMMER. I emailed Stitch Fix to see if I could exchange it for one that wasn’t damaged. Unfortunately, they didn’t have anymore on the rack.  BIGGER BUMMER.

Verdict: This one did go back.  I loved the detail on the sleeves and the back was so cute with a little sheer polka dot. 🙁 Sad. At $58.00, I would have kept it had it not had the snag.

Customer service at Stitch Fix is amazing. I was able to still get the 25% off my purchase because I would have kept all five pieces had the last one not been damaged. I sent it back and look forward to my next Fix. It should be on my door step in a less than two weeks.  Yay!!!
