My 9th shipment from Stitch Fix arrived last week and oh-my-word was it a good one! This was actually my favorite fix so far. (Spoiler alert: I decided to keep all of the clothes!) With fabrics and colors this gorgeous, I couldn't possibly return any of it. I have so many wonderful photos to share with you today, as well as a really great giveaway.

I promise to tell you all about how this amazing service works at the end of the post 🙂
The first item I tried on was this gorgeous Lydia Floral Print Key-Hole Blouse. I loved the rich colors and this blouse will be a wonderful addition as my wardrobe transitions from summer to fall and I get ready to go back to school.
The Lydia blouse was a perfect fit. I love the keyhole detail and vertical stripe down the center of the top. It's unique and oh-so-feminine.
I took my stylist's advice and paired the keyhole blouse with the Malin Bootcut jeans from Kensie which were also included in my fix.
The jeans fit PERFECTLY around the waist and in the back.
I wanted to play with the gorgeous colors of the blouse's floral print as I start to prepare my wardrobe for the change of seasons; so I added a chartreuse 3/4 sleeve cardigan from my closet, my black Fossil watch and my Lovestruck Tieks. I love everything about this outfit!
The jeans are great, but I can't usually wear denim to school. To make the ensemble a little more kindergarten teacher-appropriate, I swapped the chartreuse for a similar tan sweater, my J.Crew Pixie pants (a fall wardrobe ESSENTIAL), and some brown riding boots.
The complete ensemble was comfortable, stylish, and work-appropriate!
Next up was the Bowie Solid Dolman Sleeve Top in a vibrant coral/orange. I do not own any orange clothing and I was immediately drawn to this color. It was just so different from everything else in my closet.
I kept the Pixie pants and boots on for this outfit and just traded the blouse for the Dolman top. When paired with a few simple gold necklaces, the ensemble was perfectly laid back and fashionable.
I get a lot of questions from Kinder Craze readers about my brown boots. I purchased them at Nordstrom a few years ago. I haven't seen them in stores since, but they do sell a very similar pair on Amazon!
My stylist also included a Jalie Denim Jacket from Liverpool Jeans in the fix. Denim is the perfect layer to many of my outfits because it goes with everything, and provides just a little extra warmth without adding a lot of bulk.
I added the Jalie denim jacket right on top of my orange dolman top. This particular jacket has much more stretch than the two denim jackets I already own. It was unbelievable comfortable to wear over a long sleeve top.
I am not a fan of cool temperatures, but this outfit instantly put me in the mood for a pumpkin latte and a day of apple picking!
The final item in my fix was the Rhianna Scoop Neck Gathered Maxi Dress. My stylist must really want to see me in deep blue clothing because this was nearly the same shade as the Lydia keyhole blouse and the fit and flare dress that arrived in my 6th fix.
I don't often wear jersey dresses or anything with a scoop neck, but this dress was a winner. The front and back featured a panel with gathered fabric. This helped draw attention away from those “problem areas”. When paired with my cropped denim jacket, this outfit was a perfect to wear as warm September days turn to cooler evenings.
So there you have it!
All five items included in my most recent fix were gorgeous and fit like a dream.

How Stitch Fix Works
If you love all of these great clothes, but are wondering how Stitch Fix works, let me fill you in! Stitch Fix is an online personal styling service for women. To get started, simply complete a free style profile on the website. When you are ready, you can schedule a “fix” and you will be connected with a personal stylist. She will hand-pick five items she thinks will be a perfect fit for your figure, sense of style, and budget. The service costs only $20 and includes free shipping.
When your fix is ready, the clothes are shipped direct to your door so you can try them on in the comfort of your own home. You have three days to try the items on and decide which clothes and accessories you wish to keep. Simply ship back the items you don't want in the pre-paid shipping envelope (returns are also free). If you choose to keep any of the items, your $20 styling fee is deducted from the price of your clothes.
Once your selections are made, check out online and give feedback on each garment. Your stylist will use the feedback to provide an even better fix next time!
Buy All Discount
One of my favorite things about Stitch Fix is that if you choose to purchase all of the clothes in your fix, your order is automatically discounted 25%. Since I bought all of the clothes in my fix, I saved $91.50! The fix cost me $274.50 instead of $366 (which would have been the price without a discount.) This is the second time I have bought my entire fix. (You can read all about the first time I bought it all in this blog post.)
Stitch Fix Giveaway
Now that you have seen MY latest fix, how great would it be if you won a fix of your own? I am giving away a $20 Stitch Fix gift card that will allow you to try out the service and schedule a fix risk-free.
