One year later, my closet is bursting with Stitch Fix goodness. I wear my items multiple times a week, and almost all of them are favorite wardrobe pieces. Let's total up what I've accumulated in the last year, shall we?

All righty. Let's get to that review, shall we?
This month I'd asked my stylist for a blush colored top to go with my two pairs of magnificent red jeans. I also mentioned a fun skirt for spring that was not too fitted and possibly giving a necklace another whirl. I really wanted a fun statement piece and have seen some cute things in other people's fixes. My January box was a bust for jewelry, but I was willing to try again. The rest I left up to my stylist. She always does a bang up job of sending me stuff I didn't even know I wanted or needed.
Then, I laid everything out on the bed and took a pic.
Now we get to the hang up and try-on stage. As most of you know, my rule is to NOT look at the receipt until I'm done trying everything on. I do not want to judge an item before I actually try it on and see what it looks like.
Here we go!!!!
1) The first item I hung up was the Remmie Maxi Skirt by Papermoon for $58. I noted right away that I had several items in my closet I could wear this with. In fact, I took it over to my closet and held it up to some things I thought could work.
I took some fun pictures of the stretchability of this skirt. Unfortunately, they all turned out blurry! Let's just say I could do pretty much anything in this skirt without problems, it is THAT stretchy. Sweet! Never know when I might need that kind of mobility. KEEP!
2) The next item I tried was the Emanuel Split Neck Blouse by Daniel Rainn for $74.00. This was a lovely sheer blouse that came with an attached camisole.
Can I say adorable? And pretty? And feminine?
3) All right. After all that excitement, let's bring it down. Turn down the lights. Imagine it's Friday night and you need a nice clutch for your 3rd date with that nice guy from Match.com. I would highly recommend the Adelade Woven Fold-Over Clutch by Urban Expressions for $48.00.
Sadly, I didn't need this. Sorry, clutch, you're going back. NO.
4) My last item of clothing in the box was the Melita Pull-Over Cable Knit Sweater by Brixon Ivy (Get it? Bricks and ivy? LOL. Very clever, designer.) for $68.00. I was pretty okay with getting a sweater, because the weather here still permits it for another month or so.
5) The last item in my box was the Adrianna Circle Bib Necklace by Zad for $34.00. I really liked this one when I got it out of the box.
So that is how it went this time around. Keeping 3 and sending 2 back. Not bad.
NEWS: I have had to reduce my Stitch Fix deliveries to quarterly from now on. I need to slow down my purchases and focus on my finances in 2015. So, you won't see as many reviews from me as you used to. However, I am still looking forward to writing more of these. They are just a ton of fun.
Please leave your thoughts about this month's box. I love hearing from you!
And, if you haven't tried out Stitch Fix yet, can I lure you in to use my referral code:
I will receive a $25 credit after your first order. Thanks for considering!
