Layers of Transition

Temperatures are slowly dropping, mornings are a little more brisk and crisp, and I am just itching to layer up. But despite the fact that it’s supposed to be 80 degrees later today, I am going to dress like it’s going to be 69. That’s just how I roll 😛 .

Fooled You Not + Giveaway Winners

There once was a girl who lucked out in finding a beautiful dress for only $20 thanks to her wonderful fairy shop mother — Crossroads Trading Company. The design was divine, the fabric was elegant, and the girl left the store excited to wear the dress to her next ball. Then a week flew by  with no ball in sight. Then another week flew by and it felt like she would never be able to wear it. Eventually she said “Oh what the heck. I’m going to wear it to work instead!”

And off she went the next morning.

Top/Dress: H&M – Similar // Pants: Gap // Jacket: StitchFix (check out my review post)  // Purse: Abaco Paris // Flats: Anthropologie – Similar // Necklace: Lauren Conrad via Kohl’s – Similar

**Tip: Fold/scrunch/tuck a dress to wear it as a top! Who needs to wait for a special occasion? 🙂 

This particular dress had a slim fitting thin layer underneath with the patterned chiffon layered over and so it was easy to fold the bottom under. When choosing a dress to wear as a top, make sure that the bottom half of the dress is more snug (sort of like a body con dress) so that if you fold it, it can just sit on top of your hips. It’s just an option.

I had quite a few people come up to me today complimenting me on my “shirt”. Little did they know… 😉

Happy Thursday!

The Beauty of Gettin’ Stitch Fixed

I LOVE shopping as much as the next girl, but sometimes you just can’t deal with the indecisiveness, crowded malls, long lines, and fluorescent lights. Sometimes, shopping isn’t as pretty and easy as it seems until…

STITCH FIX.

I was just introduced to Stitch Fix — a company who provides you with a personal stylist. This stylist uses the resources and the information that you give them (such as a Pinterest board, FB, IG, etc.) and picks out 5 items for you to choose from. It’s like my own personal shopping fairy came by for a visit! You get to keep the items you like, and then mail the rest back in a prepaid envelope!

Okay, you’re probably saying to yourself..
1) Who says I need help shopping?
2) They don’t know who I am. How are they supposed to dress me?
3) Total waste of money.

Honestly, I said those same things. But I thought I’d give it a try because my last experience at the mall was kind of a drag — no parking, not in my size, long lines, and crowded spaces.

1) You probably don’t need help! But let me tell you, if you’re sometimes lazy and don’t want to step out of the house, but want something new…STITCH FIX is your FIX.
2) They do their research! The more information you give them (a.k.a preferences, social media sites, etc.), the better your stylist can assist you. They ask A LOT of questions to make sure that they serve you well!
3) It costs $20 to sign up for one style fix, but what’s neat is that you can use that $20 towards your purchase! Um, winner. And if you decide to buy all 5 items, you get 25% off your entire purchase!

I had to wait about a month for my box due to the Stitch Fix high demand, but it was worth the wait. It was so fun opening the box and being surprised about the lovely items inside. After much deliberation, I decided to only keep my favorite two items (scroll down to see!) for the sake of my bank account. 🙂

(My stylist was Lydia. I HIGHLY recommend her!)

What I love about this blouse is its design and flattering shape. It hides the tummy but slightly tapers in so it isn’t boxy. The shirt is versatile — casual, dressy, you name it.

As for the jacket…I’ve been looking for a thin neutral jacket for quite some time. Somehow my style fairy totally got the hint from my bio that I needed one. Ha. She chose a great pick for me with this classy but still a little edgy moto jacket.

I’m in STITCH FIX bliss at the moment. 🙂
