27 March 2015


You tired of another Stitch Fix post?  Ha, I have another fix coming next week, so I hope not!  I also have been pre-scheduling my posts, so I bet you'll be seeing more from me now.  Does that make you happy!? ;)   I used to be good at time management, but once a kid came around....naptime means Binge Watching Netflix, cleaning, or just collapsing on the couch.

Here's what I got in my 11th box!

1.  Lizza Split Neck Blouse by Creative Commune







I actually requested one very similar to this except it had turquoise trim.  This one was super duper cute and I was SO close to keeping it.  It was a tiny bit too big for me and after consulting my mom, my cousin, and hubby...i didn't keep it.  My stylist reccomended I wear this with Chuck Taylor's, which would have been super cute.  But oh well.  RETURNED


2. McCarthy Cutout Detail Blouse by Pixley



This top was also LOVE for me.  The color, the matierial, the detail.  I love everything about it.  But...for some reason I sent it back. ha, don't you love it when you kind of wish you hadn't returned something?  Or is that just me that will have a full cart of clothes/shoes/etc and then talk myself out of every single item...

Anyway, the reason I didn't keep this is because 1)It was just a plain color 2) I would have to wear a strapless bra every single time.  #aintnobodygottimeforthat
I hate wearing strapless bras.  So there.   RETURNED


3. Floria Split Back Knit Top by Papermoon




Hubby loved this top.  Me, not so much.  I don't care for split back pieces and the fabric was that really soft stuff that will get pulls easily. (I don't know the exact name for it). So this was definately not my favorite.  RETURNED

4.Llana Polka Dot Dress by Leota


Loved this pattern.  I am a complete sucker for polka dots.  I also loved the color.  I did not, however, love the fabric.  It was pretty clingy, as you can see my backfat in the last photo. haha!  And I didn't like feeling like I had to suck in 24/7 because of my baby pooch.  Have i mentioned how much your body changes after you birth a child?  Worth it though :)  RETURNED


5. Lex Textured Floral Knit Fit and Flare Dress by Brixon Ivy







 Now this.  This dress was instant love.  It's textured, which is a plus.  It's blue, which is my favorite color to wear.  It's a fit and flare which makes me want to twirl around (see photo above), and it's SUPER comfy to wear out and about with my wild monkey child.  I wore it to church last week and got a few compliments on it! You can also dress it down with a jean jacket (Perhaps the same one I've had since 9th grade? Sure!)  So I bet you can guess that this one went in my closet. KEPT

FACELIFT

24 March 2015


Wow, right?

My blog got a NEW NAME and a facelift!

I've been toying with the idea for a while of getting a new name. I have been Mrs. DIY and the tennis guy since I started this blog, in 2010!  However, I am not much of a DIYer anymore (well, I am, but I never blog about it).  And let's face it.  This is mostly about my kid.  He takes the spotlight. 

And this is a place for me to journal.  To write down my thoughts, my dreams, my bad days and good.  I am not blogging for fame, for comments, or for recognition.  I tell my story so I can re-read it in the future. So my kids can read it one day.  So my family can read it.  So that's how I came up with "The Jones Journal".



I am still Mrs DIY, but my blog just has a new name. ;)

Hope you like it!



**Some small changes are still taking place, so thank you for bearing with me.*




Stitch Fix #10

23 March 2015


I have two Stitch Fix reviews to do until I am caught up.  These next two do not have me modeling the items, sadly.  I was pregnant at the time, and puking my brains up 24/7.  So I didn't exactly look or feel like taking photos.  Sorry.  I did take photos of the pieces though and so I hope you still enjoy!  I know you wanted to see my gorgeous self, but you'll have to wait. HA

Here is what was in my 10th box!

1.  Zena Knit Top by Gentle Fawn



 This was not impressive from the box, but was quite the opposite when I put it on.  Super soft material and really long.  I like long.  It is like a dressed up T shirt...but I didn't want to spend $40+ on it, so I didn't keep it.  RETURNED

 

2.  Renesme Floral Print Dress by Brixon Ivy

  I love florals so I was excited when I saw this.  I really really almost kept this dress, but hubby told me it looked too much like grandma's table cloth/curtains.  sigh.   It was very cute, but when I looked at it a lot, I realized hubby might have a point.  RETURNED

3.  Aleah Heathered V-Neck Dolman Top




 In my very first fix, I received a dolman top.  I had always said they were not cute, but when I got that one, I changed my mind.  Seriously, I know I have worn that thing over 100 times.  So I LOVED this one when I saw it. The color is really in style this year, and the softness is unparallelled.  YUM.  KEPT.


4.  Yaiza Printed Wrap Dress by Pixley




This dress was just okay for me.  I love wrap dresses, but the fabric was too clingy for my hips and the V neck was too low for me, which means I would have to wear a camisole every time underneath.  Just wasn't a fan of this dress.  RETURNED.

 

5.  Leighton Metal Bauble Necklace by Bancroft 



I have 3 bauble necklaces, and although they are not gold, I still have three.  So just for that reason, I didn't keep this.  It was super pretty though.  RETURNED.

So overall, this might have been my least favorite box I've gotten, but that still won't make me unsubsribe! I love Stitch Fix.  Want to sign up?
