I’ve learned something about Stitch Fix – the more specific you are about what style you like, the more you’ll like your fix. Makes sense, right?
Help me decide what to keep and what to return:
INA BOYFRIEND JEAN ($78)
These jeans were totally vanity sized. They were a size 8 and were so loose on me I would have thought they were a 10. Anyway, these looked SO cute on. I felt really good in them too. They are super flattering, as you can see from the second photo. However, when I unrolled the perfect cuffs, the jeans were a really funky length, so I’d only be able to wear them cuffed. Keep or return?
NORRIS CHEVRON PRINT SLEEVELESS BLOUSE ($44)
I like the idea of this blouse with the longer back, but ugh, CHEVRON. I’m just not into chevron. What do you think?
OHARA FAUX WRAP TIE-WAIST DRESS ($68)
Enter the blank stare. I’m just NOT into wrap dresses, and you already know I’m not into chevron. I had a gorgeous black DVF one years ago, and I only wore it when I had a really, really skinny day. I just don’t like the way they look on me and I don’t think they suit my body type. Agreed?
ARLEY TORTOISE JEWEL PENDANT ($38)
This necklace is really cute. I probably have a million like it though. What I really want is an oversized fake pearl necklace with massive pearls.
BECCA LACE DETAIL FLORAL PRINT BLOUSE ($68)
Ahhhh! I loved this blouse. It’s loose fitting but I can get over that. I love the print and I love the lace detail on the back. I also like how conservative the neckline is.
By the way, it’s really funny to stand in the bathroom trying on all these clothes and taking pics. I think I need a new setting ha.
What should I keep and what should I return?
For the uninitiated, here’s how Stitch Fix works: You pay $20 for your box of clothes picked out for you by a stylist. They know your sizes and style by a profile you fill out, and they know what you’re looking for because you tell them. If you keep any of the items they send you, the $20 gets applied to them. If you send everything back, you pay $20 and call it a day. You have 3 days to decide what to keep and what to send back, and they do their best to pick pieces within your budget.

How is it possible that in one blink, just one blink, 5 years have passed?
Marriage isn’t easy. Anyone who tells you it’s easy is lying. But life with a partner who’s just right for you makes life so much grander. more colorful. brighter. Happier.
For our 5 year anniversary, my PhillyBoy made me this beautiful video of our lives together. It literally starts from day 1 - when we met at a wedding and fell in love right away – and continues all the way until today, 2 homes and 2 kids later. It’s a 30 minute video, and I couldn’t even speak while watching it. What is it about nostalgia that makes you choke up inside? And what is it about me specifically that makes me want to bake cookies at 7 AM after watching that video?
I know most of you probably won’t spend your morning watching this, but I’ve shared it all from the start. How could I not share this too? Here’s the video:
And here’s a first year wedding anniversary video that showcases just our wedding photos specifically.
What a full and happy 5 years together! Happy anniversary my love.
