Tops on Tuesday


I got another StitchFix in the mail yesterday, and I was very pleased with it. It was more me than my last one. I decided not to take pictures of all of the items, but they did a great job filling my style profile. I got four dresses (three that were just okay) and a top. I'm keeping the top, and I really wished that the dress that I loved had fit me. It was too small in the rib cage. That always happens to me.

The top that I'm keeping I love.
It'll look cute with skinny jeans or shorts, and it'll be perfect to take to Hawaii--that's where we're going on our honeymoon :) (more on that later). I also really loved the price and the tag that comes with it.
At $28, I couldn't really not keep it. You pay $20 to have a stylist pick out clothes and send them to you. Then that $20 becomes a credit if you decide to keep something. If you don't keep anything, you don't get the $20 back (that's the one disadvantage). But since I loved this top, that $20 credit made it cost $8 in my head. 

I also love that it comes with outfit suggestions. I wouldn't even think to tuck it in and wear it with a skirt. The flowy nature of it makes me forget that it can also be worn that way. I'll be keeping this tag in my closet for inspiration.

If you're thinking about signing up for a fix (that's what they call a shipment), I would highly recommend it. It's a really fun way to try on clothes that you wouldn't think about. It's also nice because they have a lot of brands that only sell to wholesalers and you can't buy online or in stores. Not one of the items I received this time can be found anywhere else that I've seen (and I did search for price comparison). Here's the link to sign up with my invitation. I do get a $25 credit if you order a fix from my link, so I'd love if you decide to do it if you went through me.

And while I'm at it, I thought I'd show you another top I picked up at Francesca's a couple of weeks ago when my mom was in town. It's a bit out of character for me (since I like solid colors), but I think it's cute.
You can't really tell, but all those dots are actually different colored stars. I pulled it back a little in the back because it's very flowy too and doesn't photograph as well as it wears, but it's a fun summer shirt because of the stars and cut that transitions well into fall because of the burnt orange color (it's a little brighter in the picture than it is in actuality).

Francesca's has been really hit or miss for me in the past, but I did pick up quite the haul of cute tops when I went last time. 

And lastly, although it's not about tops, I wanted to tell you about Shanna's bauble swap.
I signed up yesterday, and you trade jewelry with another blogger. You can send gently used pieces or buy new items, and you know who you're getting so you can talk about what you like and don't like. Click the button and it will take you to her page to learn more and find out where to sign up.
