Stitch Fix Review #7 September 2015

What a crazy Septemeber! I’ve been away from my computer for a while…awesome vacation (Yay Disney!-look for my future post) It feels so good to be back on and I have a fantastic review for my fellow Stitch Fix fanatics. Jessica was a awesome this month, I loved everything and if I wouldn’t have had an unexpected cell phone expense I would’ve bought it all! Here’s a quick rundown of Stitch Fix for those unfamiliar:

 You fill out a very detailed style profile explaining every aspect of your style and how you like things to feel and fit. Your personal stylist will handpick five items for you which can include tops, pants, dresses, jewelry, purses, etc.. It is free shipping both ways.  There is a $20 styling fee initially but that will come off the price of anything you keep even if you keep just one thing. And if you keep everything you will get a 25% discount!! If  you decide to try it please use my link here so I can keep doing these posts on what I love!

Item #1 Mystree Chamberlain Striped Drape Front Cardigan

This was amazing, I loved this so much. Super soft and cozy

Item #3 and #4 Pixley Malynn Asymmetrical Soft Moto Vest and Romolo Genevieve Stacked Chevron Pendant Necklace

I was iffy on the vest, I think I could have made it work. I kept the necklace, I had it on my Pinterest board about a million times!

Item #5 Hem & Thread Highley Lace Detail Knit Top

This top was really soft and pretty, you really need to wear something underneath, kinda see-through.

21 Pieces of Stitch Fix: My Entire Collection!

It’s no secret my love of Stitch Fix so I thought I’d do something fun and roundup all the pieces I’ve collected so far! Ok, maybe not quite all, there is a few pants and shorts missing but you get the point :) There were a couple of shirts I didn’t keep but they were too cute for me not to include!

So here’s a super quick rundown of how Stitch Fix work: Fill out a style profile and your personal stylist will send you 5 items based on your profile and your Pinterest board (which I highly recommend doing) you will be much happier if you do!  You have three days to try things on and after the three days keep what you want and send back what you don’t!! Yes that easy! Free shipping both ways and your $20 styling fee will go toward your purchase! If you do decide to sign up please use my link here so I can get a referral and keep doing what I love.  My previous posts will give way more details if you’re interested so feel free to look through my past reviews!!

God showed up even when I didn’t believe he would..

James 1:3 NLT

“For you know that when your faith is tested, your endurance has a chance to grow. “

Another month has come and gone and I hope it was fantastic for you and your family! I felt strongly to share my heart with you and what occurred this week within our community.

This was an incredibly enlightening week for me both spiritually and emotionally. Something that could have had a terrible outcome, turned into something powerful and beautiful.

A dire situation arose in a small town I work in and at the time it seemed destined to turn into a tragedy. The entire community went into action and did everything in their humanly power to help. Hundreds showed up. Those who could help physically did, and those who could only pray, did.. I helped a little physically, but mostly I  walked and prayed, hard. I sadly haven’t prayed like that in a very long time. And it hurt, because God was doing something in me I never expected. He was teaching me to BELIEVE that he would answer my prayers, even when I didn’t think he would. 

A miracle happened.. God answered us, and saved a precious life. We all cried tears of joy and I also cried tears of humility because I didn’t believe God would show up. Even though I prayed and prayed my heart just didn’t believe. I let the devil win a small victory by planting a seed of disbelief. I wonder how many other times I’ve prayed for the Lord to answer me and unaware my heart was weak. 

1 Peter 1:7 NLT

“These trials will show that your faith is genuine. It is being tested as fire tests and purifies gold, though your faith is far more than gold. So when your faith remains strong through many trials, it will bring you much praise and glory and honor on the day Jesus Christ is revealed to the whole world.”

God hears us. No matter what we think. I know he realizes our weaknesses and loves us anyway. 

I also have never seen such an amazing display of love and unity within a community. Something great happened that day, Jesus showed up, even though we couldn’t see him, we knew he was there. He taught me more that day than I have learned over many years, to trust that Jesus hears me and he will answer when I call his name. 

My heart is full of joy and thanks today as is for many others. I know this won’t be the last time I will be tested, but I know then my heart will be stronger and I will strive to believe what I pray..

Blessings, Monica
