April Stitch Fix

I have officially recovered from the Girl Scout Cookie Binge-a-thon of 2014.  I’ve also snapped out of the guilt ridden self-esteem smack down that unfortunately followed.  I’ve weighed myself, I’ve worked out a couple times, I’m ready for refocusing time.

This month I was ready for my fix.  I updated my style profile by adding this blog and a Pinterest board.  I figure the more information the stylist has the better my fix.  Mission accomplished.  My stylist, Jinnah, nailed it.  Everything in my fix was exactly what I love.  The most touching part was how personal the note was.  Sure there is always a “personal” note but in reality I was just a Heather in California.  This note, however, referenced me because my stylist took the time to check out the links I added.  I can’t tell you how sweet she was.  This experience just got better.
This month, Jinnah picked out a lot of great pieces from 41Hawthorn.  Included were the Ivy tulip print tab blouse, Moni stud detailed 3/4 sleeve blouse, Abrianna long sleeve knit cardigan, and the Beckett graphic print v-neck blouse.  Also inside was the Fletcher lace trim blouse from Papermoon.
As always, I tried on all of the clothes before checking the prices.  Do you know how hard that is?  
41Hawthorn Ivy Tulip Print Tab Sleeve Blouse in blue ~ $68.00
I LOVE this blouse.  The sweet tulip print, the fabulous fabric, and perfect cut stole my heart.  I could not wait to try this on, having already decided that this blouse was mine!  I slipped it on and then…my ladies got flattened weird.  This blouse fit everywhere else so well except across the chest.  
I actually debated buying it any way as a motivator to think thin but at $68.00 I had to say no.  Sadly, I must add.  I really love this blouse.
41Hawthorn Moni Stud Detailed 3/4 Sleeve Blouse in dark pink ~ $58.00
Another fabulous blouse.  I loved the style of this top.  I have to admit I’m not usually a fan of stud 
accents but my opinion was swayed by this chic combination.  The fabric was so light and the cut was perfect!  I love arm coverage while still being cute.  The downside?  This extra-large blouse fit way more like a medium.  
41Hawthorn Abrianne Longsleeve Knit Cardigan in navy ~ $48.00
Blue just so happens to be my favorite color.  I love the way it compliments my eyes.  I also happen to love layering with a cardigan.  This piece is the perfect weight for layering all year round.  The front drapes well and the length is flattering to my body type.  Not having a navy cardigan, I couldn’t resist!
Papermoon Fletcher Lace Trim Blouse in black ~ $48.00
My heart skipped a beat when I first laid eyes on the floral lace trim.  I love embroidered blouses.  They are so sweet and feminine and unique.  I was disappointed by how short the front of this blouse was.  Being a sleeveless top, the lack of length made this awkward and boxy.  Not even a cardigan or jacket could improve this disaster.  
41Hawthorn Beckett Graphic Print V-Neck Blouse in blue ~ $54.00
At first glance this blouse was my least favorite.  The pattern didn’t really speak to me but I did kind of liked the neck line and color block trim.  The fabric is light and the cut was comfortable and flattering.  I paired this with the cardigan and I was suddenly in love.  The pattern and I bonded.  I felt put together. This is an outfit I can dress up or down.  I’ve been secretly wanting to not look like such a slob while still being comfy, casual, and cute.  This blouse fits the bill.
Can you guess how this fix ended up?
Stitch Fix Selfie!  I couldn’t help myself.  How cute is this outfit!  I can’t believe that is me!  I think tomorrow is a great time to debut my cute new fix!

  1. Oh hey, there you are! Great to add a “face” to your name… and you look great. The blouse is really pretty and flattering! I might have to give Stitch Fix a try sometime. 🙂


  2. *Beaming* THANKS San! You just made my day!! Sometimes the clothes are a little pricier than I would typically spend but I've found some really cute stuff! I love that you can send back anything you don't want for free AND your $20.00 monthly fee goes towards any purchases. Kind of feels like a dislocated discount. I'm super happy with this outfit and got tons of compliments! : )
