Hi, guys! Happy November! I have a fun blog post + GIVEAWAY for you this morning! 🙂
As you might know, Mal and I are huge fan of Stitch Fix and really look forward to receiving our monthly “fixes” in the mail. He loves fashion, and I hate shopping, so it’s a win-win for the both of us. I mean, stylish apparel, selected with our personal tastes in mind, arrives right to our front door. It doesn’t get easier or better than that!
When it comes to opening our fixes, it’s always a fun event, but Mal and I handle things quite differently.
I typically open my fix as soon as it arrives. I open the box, immediately look at the style card, pull out each of the items to get a better look, and then let the box sit untouched for a few days before I eventually try everything on and make some decisions – only because I know I’m running out of time and need to send back the unwanted items to Stich Fix.
Mal, on the other hand, waits days until he even opens the box. Not because he’s not excited about it, but because he needs to find the perfect time and right state of mind to make important fashion decisions.
Mal takes out each piece and then immediately tries it on. We always have “fashion shows” for each other to get the other person’s opinion, so, after he gets my take, he makes a decision on each article of clothing. Once he’s made his choices, he finally looks at the style card. Isn’t it funny how opposite we are with how we handle our fixes?
MAL’S STITCH FIX
Top left to right:
EZEKIEL Cleveland Fleece Jacket ($78) – KEEP: Mal loved this bomber-style jacket for work. He plans to wear it over collared shirts in the colder months.
ORIGINAL PENGUIN Braylon Leather Sneaker ($80) – RETURN: Mal was pretty close to keeping these sneakers, but he ultimately decided that he already owned a couple of pairs that were similar.
EZEKIEL Hammond Textured Hoodie ($75) -KEEP: Mal loves hoodies and wears them all the time – at the gym, school, hanging out with friends, and lounging around the house. He loved that this one was more high-end than his usual hoodies.
TAILOR VINTAGE Nathan Heathered Baseball Henley ($59) – KEEP: Mal loves a good Henley shirt, so this item was an easy “keep” for his wardrobe.
ALTERNATIVE APPAREL Cole Cotton Modal V-neck Tee ($38) – KEEP: Mal has a ton of worn-out v-neck t-shirts that need to be replaced, so this one was definitely a keeper. It’s super soft!

MY STITCH FIX
NOISY MAY Yasmin Open Back Detail Knit Top ($36) – RETURN: I was pretty close to keeping this top, but I wasn’t sure how much I’d really wear it (plus, it was handwash-only), so I passed.
T4T Emory Jogger ($48) – KEEP: The second I touched these joggers, I knew I wanted them in my life. They’re so incredibly soft!
ANDREW MARC PERFORMANCE Rosella Mesh Back Performance Legging ($50) – RETURN: I really liked these leggings, but they were too long. Whomp whomp.
MELLO DAY Josh Knit Top ($46) – KEEP: I immediately loved the style, color, and texture of this top. It’s so cozy, and I know I’ll wear it a ton with jeans and leggings.
KEDS Champion Novelty Lace up Sneaker ($55) – RETURN: I love KEDS, but I’m generally not a fan of sparkles, so I sent them back.
