Stitch Fix Review: 4.0

You know what is more exciting than seeing that your latest Stitch Fix has shipped?

Nothing.

Absolutely nothing is more exciting...so, when I saw on Monday that my fix had already shipped I, of course, was ecstatic and immediately peeked at my order. (How do you peek, you say? Well, you "go to checkout" and voila, there are the contents of the fix that is on its way to you! Just make sure you don't actually "checkout" yet...)

As I compulsively checked the tracking information and then saw my fix was arriving one day early...then TWO days early I was giddy!! And then..."Package could not be delivered in a secure place." WHAAAAAAAAA? Quickly remedied by a phone call to the P.O. Phew. Crisis averted!

Without further ado...following is the super quality fashion show of my latest fix.

First up...this outfit. The Liverpool Reagan Skinny Pants were ADORABLE. Buuuuuut, kinda trendy? And for nearly $100 (well, okay, $88), I was getting cold feet about buying them and then having them be obsolete next winter. I think I'll jump on the plaid bandwagon with less commitment...like a scarf. However, they also fit like a glove. So, there was that. But...ugh. What a dilemma. 



The shirt? RD Style Angus Split Back...can I just say something here? Who invented split back shirts? Cuz I'd kinda like to kick 'em where it counts...I mean, they split right across your butt, making it look like your butt exploded right out of your shirt. No. Just...no.



Next up, Calandra Side Button Poncho...I pulled this bad boy out of the box and thought, "Well, great. If our power goes out, the whole family can snuggle up inside this GINORMOUS poncho to keep warm." But then I put it on and something magical happened. It just...flowed. And hung in all the right ways and did it still feel big? Yes. But not big in a bad way...and then my husband told me I looked "super cute" and HELLO. If your husband uses the words "super cute" it MUST be good! (For the record, my fashionista teenage daughter also concurred.)



Finally...Beetlejuice, beetlejuice, BEETLEJUICE!!!!! 



This 41Hawthorn Benson Blazer (ugh...does anyone else hear "blazer" and think shoulder pads and 1980 with Farrah Faucett hair?!) reminded me of "Beetlejuice" from the second I saw it when I peeked at my order. Some people tried to tell me fun ways to wear it...but I just couldn't get past the Beetlejuice feel to it! Also, it was a bit snug. However, it was absolutely LUSCIOUS. So soft and thick and stretchy and just...wow. But no. And under it? The Sam Hi-Lo Tee which was, well, a tshirt and I think it was supposed to be a looser fit and $44 for a tshirt?! I just couldn't.



I think it goes without saying that this was a 1/5 fix...that poncho did it for me and the pants I would've totally gone for if I had the 25% buy 5 discount, but alas, back they went, along with the rest of it!

And, *sob* *sniffle* *tear*, I've done the responsible adult thing and delayed my fixes until February because: Christmas. Mama can't be spending good money on herself when there are oodles of presents to be purchased!!

Coming soon...

Come here looking for the tutorial? It can be found here: Halo Braid Tutorial! Let me know how it goes!
I had something in mind to try on Baby Girl's hair the other day...my best bud, Dr. J, did something similar to it on Belle once, and I was trying to replicate it.
Instead, I got this:

Isn't it pretty?! It didn't take nearly as long as it looks and isn't nearly as intricate as it looks!
Vlog tutorial coming soon...(for those of you waiting, I'm sorry it's taking me so long!)

Halo Braid Tutorial!

How appropriate, "halo braid", no?! ;) Finally, I have this ready for you...I apologize for the delay!
This braid looks intricate, but is really quite easy and quick to pull off...the original video (prior to the warp speed braiding...watch the video to see what I mean) was just a bit over 8 minutes long...not too shabby!
So, here you go...right in time for you to try it out on your little girl for Easter!


Crock-Pot Fajitas

You must stop whatevertheheck it is that you are doing, and make this recipe. Right now.

Well...wait. You should probably finish reading this post first...you know...so you know how to make it...
But then...STOP! STOP everything, make this, and thank me later!
Oh, hold it...wait just a sec (again)...actually, I got this recipe from Melissa...yes, the Melissa of this story!
And this story...which, well...is the same story, just told two different ways! ;)
So, you can thank her...I guess.
Well, in any event...prepare your tastebuds to be tantalized!
You'll need this:
And, this:

You'll also need chicken breasts or steak, but since photographing your "main ingredient" is, like, soooo passe, I've left it out. (Ahem...)
Just keepin' up with the times, friend.
So...slice up those peppers and onions into cute little strips...
And...try your best to not slice up the little fingers that are sneaking away pepper strips...
