Happy 4th of July! I got my July Fix. It was very red, white, and blue!
I asked for 5 dresses (including 2 maxi dresses!) in this fix, and here they are.
‘Andrea French Terry Striped Shift Dress’ by Tart. Do I like red stripes? Yes and this dress would be perfect if I was looking for a 4th of July outfit, but I wasn’t. Plus, it seems too simple for the price.
‘Fiona Embroidery Detail Striped Maxi Dress’ by Pomelo. Yay maxi dress! My stylist suggested wearing it with wedges, since it’s probably a little too long for me, which it is. Well, the problem is when walking in heels in a maxi dress, I feel like I’m gonna step on the dress and trip over. The top part of the dress is lace – interesting mix. The cut of this dress is so flattering though. Continue reading
After some confusing and unhappy times (my July rambling), I made some changes to my life. Hopefully, it‘s for the better (not worse!), but who knows? – we’ll have to wait and see. :p In the meantime, I have been away from blogging and I owe you guys two Stitch Fix reviews!
So here’s my last month’s fix.
Argghh… I’ve been really bad at updating the blog! Why, you might ask?
Well, the truth is (this is about to get into a real intimate, what-blogs-were-originally-meant-to-be moment here) I’ve been kinda down. And what have I been so down about? It’s just a little bit of this economy and a lot of my job. I do have a job, which some would probably say I should be glad about. I know, I know, but that doesn’t take away from the fact that I am under-employed! A lot of my young co-workers are, and apparently so are a lot of people out there. Underemployment leads to boredom and disengagement. Doing that day in and day out, you start to forget what you can actually accomplish and lose confidence and feel undervalued. I had tried to focus on positivity and things that I like outside of work (i.e. figure skating, fashion, Pinterest, and this blog). But after a while, the negativity from my day seeps into my positive parts instead of the other way around like I intended. Overall, I know my situation is not that bad, but I still feel undervalued. I’m not even looking for a new job. My first experience in Corporate America leaves me with a bad taste. You’re at best a task, at worst a seat warmer! I can go on and on about this. But maybe that’s a topic for another blog? 🙂
Anyways, back to fun things like Stitch Fix review, shall we? 🙂
So I got my July fix, and here’s what came in the box! When I opened it up I saw that red top – gasp! So cute!
