Stitch Fix Round 2

My second Stitch Fix came in the mail the other day. After my first fix, I wasn’t entirely sure what to expect this time around. Although it was super fun filling out the style profile, linking to my Pinterest board (!), and receiving a personally styled box of items in the mail, many of the items were much too expensive (including the jeans I bought) or a little bit not my style. But I really enjoyed the process and I believe in trying new things at least three times before deciding whether I like it or not.

In light of trying new things, I thought it would be fun to style some of the items I received with some items I already had in my closet. Also, I need major help making a decision on what I should buy this time… : )

I was super excited to find that I really liked my entire fix this time. And it was much less expensive than my last fix ($170 for everything versus $300 for everything in April). To me, this says that there truly is someone on the other end taking my feedback into consideration and checking out my style dreams on Pinterest. The colors, styles, fit, and prices of this fix were much more realistic for me. And let me just say, the quality of all the items I’ve received so far – even the accessories  – are pretty top notch. So much better than the Forever21, Charlotte Russe, and JC Penny’s quality I’m used to.Nature Crafts Love: Stitch Fix PeekNature Crafts Love: Stitch Fix Peek

This fix was super great because not only did everything fit (expect the maxi dress is a little too big), but it’s also filled with a good mix of things I can wear to work or out-and-about.

Has anyone else given Stitch Fix a try? I’d really love to hear what others think. Okay! Off to go try everything on AGAIN, and maybe make up my mind about what I should keep. : )

ps… for the crocheters and knitters out there, that Baggu canvas bag would make the PERFECT on-the-go yarn bag.

We’re moving! (actually, just packing so far, but you get the idea)

Alright. I officially feel like an adult… not really. But we are buying our first house (eep!), which is kind of adult-like. We’ve been spending much of the last month and a half exploring neighborhoods, daydreaming about pinterest-perfect kitchens, and purging all our crap. We’re downsizing so the last part is kind of critical, and definitely not as fun as the former. We have a few weeks left until closing, but the packing festivities have already begun!

In the downtime, I’ve been spending a lot of time thinking about what kind of inspiring spaces we’ll create. My Pinterest home board is bursting out the sides of my screen with images of kitchens, pillows, living rooms, craft spaces, and backyards. Sometimes I think Pinterest gives me unrealistic expectations of what I can actually accomplish… those Pinterest fail pictures really resonate with me every once in awhile. ha! But! I’m going to try to be a make-shift interior designer anyway.

One space I’m really excited to play around with is my crafting area. I have this little collection of cameras that I’ve been dying to put up on display somewhere. While I still use most of them, I’ve discovered that carrying them all around with me at once is… crazy. And keeping them packed away in a box is too shameful.

Cameras2I’m not one for hoarding large collections of things, but I really can’t help myself when it comes to cameras. I’ve been on the lookout for simple and non-cluttered ways of displaying these little guys. If you’ve seen any, please share!

Looking forward to sharing some summertime bungalow inspiration and DIY’s here on the blog!
