September Stitch Fix Box Review

I haven’t done a Stitch Fix in a long time.  I might have a slight addiction though since this is my 18th box!! I have to say that my boxes have definitely gotten better since my first box.

Tips for a better Stitch Fix box

Update your style profile monthly.

Always make sure that you are honest with your sizing. I would like to say that I am still an extra-small in shirts, but now that I have been doing CrossFit for about a year, my arms are a little bigger. I would get frustrated when I was sent shirts that were too tight in my chest, now I updated my sizing and the clothes fit better!

Also, if you really don’t see yourself in a style make sure you tell your stylist! I hate sheer shirts since it gets awkward when I have to figure out the bra situation for work attire. So I told my stylist. Now I don’t receive them!

Pin, Pin, Pin

Pinterest is a huge help because I love pinning other stitch fix reviews. I made a Stitch Fix board where I put all the looks I love. If you search “stitch fix” on Pinterest, you can find other bloggers who have reviewed their fixes. I just head to their blog and pin what I love!

Okay, let’s get to the fix!

Jacket - Stitch Fix

Red Shirt - Stitch Fix

Blue Jacket - Stitch Fix

Dolman Sleeves - Stitch Fix

Gray Jeans - Stitch Fix

First off – I thought this was a pretty good fix. I wanted more fall clothes since it was September and I asked for a new pair of jeans. I actually thought I would keep everything in my fix because I loved the colors…but then I tried the clothes on.

Navy Jacket – oh man, did I want to keep this. But it was a small instead of extra-small and I just got swallowed in it!

Gray Jeans – We had a love/hate relationship. I loved the color, but I didn’t like how tight it felt on my thighs.

Blue/Cream Sweater – I loved the blue/cream striped sweater but the material felt too stretchy and I thought it would later be too big on me.

Geo Print Top – I didn’t like the material. It was like that slinky-stretchy material and we just don’t get along.

Red top – I actually really loved this! It wasn’t too tight on my arms and it was perfect for work.

 

Out of all the items, I kept the red top. It was perfect for work and was light enough to wear while it’s still hot in NorCal.

Essential Apps for Bloggers

Hey bloggers – if you are always on the go, this list is for you. Between checking stats, responding to comments, and editing pictures here are the essential apps for bloggers. 

Dropbox

This cloud storage is a key tool to keep all your files and pictures in one place. Access everything from your phone or computer, this makes sharing media kits a breeze.

Bloglovin

The app is perfect for following the blogs you love and finding new favorites. Plus it’s fantastic that even if a blog isn’t registered on Bloglovin you can still follow their feed.

A Beautiful Mess 

This app is one of my all-time favorites. Make your photos pretty with fun filters and text and share them easily with friends.

Hootsuite

It’s great to schedule posts and tweets in advance. Sometimes the day get away from me, it’s 6pm and zero tweets have been published. Now that I have Hootsuite I schedule sponsored tweets and others ahead of time.

Mailbox

Nothing is more glorious than zero inbox. With Mailbox it’s super easy to swipe emails into files, see conversations in a chat-like view, and put off emails that you just can’t deal with right now.

Google Analytics

Who wants to know their live blog stats even when you aren’t on your computer? (I do!) I actually find the mobile version of Google analytics to be easier to follow than the desktop version. Now when a company wants to know my unique views for my blog, the answer is in the palm of my hand.

 

Have a favorite app that you can’t live without? Leave your faves in the comments!

How to Order Glasses Online

Say you found the perfect pair of glasses online, but you aren’t sure of how they are really going to fit. Normally, it’s easier to find glasses at the store since you can physically try them on. But we all know the prices at the store are significantly higher than online. Save some moolah and here is an easy guide to order glasses online.

This guide is brought you by Zenni Optical. Want a fantastic deal on eye glasses? Of course you do. Zenni Optical has glasses starting at $6.95. All of their glasses include free anti-scratch coating which is amazing since I have a tendency to stick my glasses in my purses without a case. I know, it’s horrible!

I picked out some adorable frames for fall. My favorite pair is the bottom left with the touch of green!Zenni Optical

Have you ever shopped online for eye glasses? What has been your experience and favorite shops?
