For those of you who don't know, Stitch Fix is a service that sends you 5 items of clothing and/or accessories picked out by a stylist. I's a great service for people who (1) can't style themselves; (2) hate shopping; and (3) are clueless about dressing for different occasions. All three of those apply to me.
Stitch Fix costs about $20 a month, although that's applied to the cost of the clothing item(s) you choose to keep. You get a 25% total discount if you keep the whole box. For more information, see Stitch Fix's general information.
This month, though, someone insisted on spying on me. She makes an appearance in some of my photos. :)
1. Tania Lapis Pendant Necklace

2. Corinna Striped Dolman Top
Now, I usually love the dolman tops that Stitch Fix sends me. This dolman top, however, falls below my crotch untucked, has a rounded hem, and (unlike most dolman tops) doesn't cinch in lower down. On my short stature, all of this combines to make me look like a squat dwarf. :) Not flattering! So... I'm wearing this tucked in the front and untucked in the back. Luckily, like most Stitch Fix tops, this top is ultra soft and comfortable.
Verdict: KEPT. (Normally I would have sent this back because it doesn't flatter me without being tucked in. But with the 25% discount for all 5 items, it was cheaper to keep this).
3. Mandy Lace Detailed Short Sleeve Blouse
Fyi, I requested this top on my Pinterest Board. I squealed when I saw that my stylist had seen that and had sent me this top in my box. In my experience, I've found that Stitch Fix stylists are pretty good at selecting pieces that are similar to my Pinterest board, so make sure you have one if you're subscribed to this service.
4. Jordanne A-line Skirt
A-line skirts are so flattering for my body type. When I peaked at my box before it arrived, I thought I was going to get a grey colored skirt since most Stitch Fix reviews had that color. Imagine my surprise when I found out it was dark green!
And you know what? I LOVE the different color. It's still conservative and work appropriate, but it also brings a pop of color into my otherwise grey and black work wardrobe.
And best of all, it's lined and comfortable.
5. Rebekah Contrast Detail Blazer
Last but not least, Stitch Fix sent me a blazer! I forgot to take a picture of the inside, but the lining has polka dots which, in my opinion, are adorable. However, the most amazing part of this blazer is that the sleeves aren't too long. They're the perfect bracelet length that allows me to show off my watch.
This was yet another box where I bought all five pieces. Stitch Fix is killing it!
I immediately cut off the tags of three of the pieces (the blazer, white blouse, and skirt), and the other two were definitely pieces I like and will wear. While it's unfortunate that the dolman top in this box doesn't quite flatter my short stature without being tucked in, I've learned a lesson that longer tops may not be the best tops for me.
Do you agree with my decisions? Do you also subscribe to Stitch Fix? Let me know!

I couldn't resist, but the pumps I was wearing with my jeans are my new favorite shoes:
I bought them on sale at Lord and Taylor over the winter break, and these are the first shoes I have owned where I feel like a million bucks when I wear them. They're suede and color blocked in navy and cobalt blue. I'm kind of in love with them.
Dear god, I'm such a girl...
Anyhow, to end this post, I end with a photo bomb. My cat is the queen at photo bombing, and let's be honest... she's way cuter than I am. :)
