Welcome to Thursday Fashion Files!
I will be taking occasional Co-Hosts for Thursday Fashion Files, if you are interested you can email me at carrie (at) curlycraftymom (dot) com to set up a date.
I always enjoy ordering a Stitch Fix box every Fall, because who doesn’t love Fall clothes? I believe this is box #12 for me! I was pretty happy with this box, I landed up keeping 3 of the 5 items. I usually only keep 1 or 2, because they do tend to be a little more on the pricey side… but, the quality is always top notch! So, let me share my box with you and which items I kept (and why).
This Fall floral sheer top with the adorable black bow tie was a MUST have for me. It fits nicely, and I love the boho sleeves and the black bow and ribbon is just a super cute touch. I also landed up keeping the burgundy corduroys. I already have a burgundy pair, but oh my… this pair feels like butter! Ok, it really doesn’t feel like butter, but the corduroy is almost like velvet. I paired this pair up next to my old burgundy pair of pants and I knew I had to upgrade, because this is a piece I’ll wear all Fall long, y’all.
This top is really soft and I did love it. But, I’m looking for more long sleeves tops right now. However, it would be nice for a HOT Fall day, which we’ve had several days with temps in the 90’s this September! It looks more pink to me than burgundy. I thought it was super cute with my white denim and booties. I also gave my hair a little side braid, because plaid makes me think of braids! 🙂
I’ve been wanting a new cardi, somehow my closet seems to be void of many cardigans. When I used to work out of the house, I had a ton of cardis! I love this grey one, because the color will be versatile. It is a little longer than the usual cardi, which will be great if I’m layering a tee over leggings and I still need to cover by bum. 😉 Or, if I just want a snuggly piece to wear and it pairs really well with this dress (that I didn’t keep). You can’t really see in these photos, but the sleeves have a cute zipper detail. I’m planning on pairing this grey cardi with a lacey black tank that I just received on the blog soon!
The dress was really pretty, it has metallic colors in the floral print. And, who doesn’t love a dark floral print this time of year? It has more of a boho shape and I felt it was almost TOO big around my waist, even for a boho design. I kind of prefer dresses to be a little more form fitting, maybe because I usually wear dresses out for girls nights or date nights and I want to show my curves! Is that so bad? 🙂 I rarely wear a dress to church anymore, since we go to the Saturday service. It was really cute, though with the cardi!
Since I kept 3 items, I almost decided to keep the ENTIRE box, which I have never, ever done. However, I am one of those people that doesn’t want to have items hanging in my closet that I’m not 100% in love with… and, it did still mean more money spent (especially after taxes). So, I sent back the 2 I wasn’t 100% in love with and kept the 3 items that I did love! It worked out perfectly! I think I am going to try to order a Stitch Fix box every season, it is always a fun surprise in the mail and I love being able to select an item or two that I normally wouldn’t have found on my own.
