February 2017 – Stitch Fix Review

Have you heard of Stitch Fix? I am sure you have but just in case.. Stitch Fix is a fashion subscription service where a stylist hand picks 5 different clothing items or accessories for you to try on and potentially purchase. They charge a $20.00 styling fee that is then applied to any of your purchases. You can get a fix sent as frequently or as infrequently as you want and you don’t have to purchase anything if you decide not to (note: you lose the styling fee if you don’t buy anything). Everything you get is a surprise and you have 3 days to try things on and decide which items to keep, mail back what you don’t like and repeat. More FAQ on SF here.

This year I am sharing my reviews of my fixes and you may have already caught the one I did in January. I am a little late in posting my February review but let me just say this was a great box and I was really glad to see some different kind of pieces this time. I asked my stylist for some pops of color and some casual pieces. I think she did a pretty good of trying to match my asks with what they have in the Stitch Fix inventory. I am still loving my Pinterest board to death and constantly tweaking it.  If you are going to do SF you really need to consider investing some time in a Pinterest board and keeping it up to date with your latest fashion likes, loves, and “OMG cannot live withouts”! I don’t want to waste anymore time so let’s get right to it!

Disclaimer: I was not paid or compensated by Stitch Fix to share my thoughts or promote their service. However, I have listed my referral link in the post which grants me a credit if you sign up for your own fix. 

  • Bay to Baubles – Fletcher Chandelier Earrings $28.00 

I have had to be mindful of how much jewelry I get from SF. In my last few fixes I had asked them not to send me any because I was amassing quite the collection and running out of places to put things. This time around I figured it was about time for a new pair of earrings but they needed to be a statement piece or something more exciting. I pinned a few examples of chandelier earrings and was pretty excited to see this pair in my fix. I love gold everything so it was kind of an easy choice.

Verdict: Kept

  • Skies are Blue – Frankie Lace Detail Blouse $48.00 

All of a sudden I wanted a navy blouse with lace or some sort of cute detail. I was pinning navy blouses left and right. So, this arrived and I was super excited. YASSS, a cute navy blouse! Then I went in to my closet and realized I have like 3-4 other navy blouses. Why did I think I needed more? How did I forget that I even had that many in there?!?! So many questions. But listen, this is cute, simple and affordable so…make it 5 navy blouses. Note: This is why the idea of making a capsule wardrobe makes my armpits sweat. I don’t know what this editing process is and yes, I need all the choices!

Verdict: Kept

  • Rune – Donaald Cowl Neck Knit Hoodie $64.00 

I was getting to this point where I was asking my stylist to send me only things I could wear to work or out with the girls. I forgot that I also want to look cute when I am running errands and going to yoga, who doesn’t?! I had seen some more casual pieces on Pinterest and simple looking hoodies. It might seem like a waste but I never think to run to the mall and pick up a hoodie or sweatshirt. Usually I inherit these from my athletic siblings or purchase them on vacation as a form of souvenir. I decided to ask Cassie for a hoodie or something casual and she sent over this hoodie. Honestly, I pulled it out of the box and felt a little underwhelmed since it wasn’t overly detail but then I put it on. It has thumb holes!!!!! I love sweatshirts with thumb holes, it is like trying on a dress and discovering it has pockets. I liked the fit and actually appreciated the simplicity of it. The cowl neck was a nice feature and the hoodie is the perfect sizing, I actually still felt cute in it!



Verdict: Kept

  • Loveappella – Zola Knit Dress $64.00 

Cassie is crushing it in the dress department. She must have sensed that I was getting comfortable with showing off the curves and being secretly sexy without having the girls on full display. The color of this dress just spoke to me immediately. At first I thought this was going to be a bit too tight on me but this dress is magical. It has some sort of stretchy power that I cannot quite put my finger on. Also, the little detail of the slit is kind of amazing. There is some sort of spandex panel thing happening there (super technical fashion terms at work here…) and it smooths everything out. I wore this dress for my Vday dinner and felt very sexy. I also covered it up with a blazer and wore it to work…still feeling myself but in a professional “business” kind of way. Dear Cassie, you are crushing it with the dresses. Keep it up!!

Verdict: Kept (I mean, duh!)

  • Pixley – Tarnow Sweater Sleeve Cargo Jacket $78.00

This was an unexpected piece. I haven’t really received anything like this in the past and things that might have been similar I have usually sent back because the pattern was either too much or the jacket/coat was not terribly flattering. I kind of loved the sleeves on this. Were it not for the sleeves I might hate the jacket because the color kind of said camo/military to me. The sleeves were definitely a cute detail and made it feel feminine. This jacket has a hood with the option of folding it up and zipping it away. I also like how the jacket is structured and has a drawstring in the middle for additional tightening/loosening as needed. Perfect jacket for transitioning in to spring and could see it working well as you transition in to fall as well.

Verdict: Kept

In Summary: 

I am sure you were keeping track but I actually kept my entire fix! This was the first time in over 2 years of using Stitch Fix that I actually kept the entire box *round of applause*. I think the combination of different pieces at reasonable prices helped me to make the decision. I have certainly sent things back based on cost alone so this time around I was glad to see that the things I loved were also affordable. This is an example of Stitch Fix getting it right! Can’t wait for my March fix and sharing it with all of you. Stay tuned.

Mushroom & Asparagus Quiche

Something’s just make me smile!

It was basically summer for one day and I had mixed feelings about it. I loved feeling the sun because it instantly lifts your mood but then I remember that I am feeling the sun and wearing short sleeves in February because our planet is a mess, so, yeah. I think a lot of people felt the same way. I enjoyed it as much as I could and honestly it helped give me hope that sunny days were heading our way. In the meantime I have this really sunny Quiche to look at and pretend that spring is already here.

I can hardly believe that February is coming to a close and we are already in March. Part of me is grateful that the time is moving along but then the other part of me feels like I am still trying to sort out all my ish and it would be great if we could just hold the phone for a minute. I am still processing that it’s 2017 and I am now half way through 30 which means starting next month I’ll officially lean in the direction of 31, and I don’t even know! Ahhhhhhhhhhhh! I don’t even know why I became an adult, I think most of us agree that it can sometimes be the worst.

Some of you are probably reading this and saying to yourselves, dude chillax! I mean, you are probably right. I don’t even know why I get all worked about these things. I think I just needed to get it out there, that alone helps me to get grounded again. Thanks for listening guys, it really helps hehe.



I should maybe consider talking more about this Quiche since it’s probably why you are here (you read as rolling your eyes and saying “duh”). I basically love Quiche and whenever I am tasked with hosting a brunch, I turn to Quiche because it is delicious, easy, delicious, and kind of fancy (yes, I said delicious twice…I know). I think I have mentioned before that we were a Sunday brunch kind of household. Saturday you could have cereal or whatever you wanted but Sunday morning was the best part of the weekend. We would usually wake up to the smell of something already cooking. If it smelled like bacon, I was already excited. My mom is the queen, of a lot of things, but in this case, making a frittata or scramble with whatever leftovers we had sitting around. It’s pretty amazing! On a few rare occasions we would have a Quiche but these were usually reserved for holidays or special events. Either way, they make me think of Sunday’s as a kid and always starting the day with a big brunch. I realize posting this on  Sunday is poor timing because how are you going to make this now but maybe save it for next Sunday or whatever, make it and eat it during the week. You do whatever you want!

Quiche is super easy, even more so because I don’t usually fuss with making my own crust. You certainly should try it at a least once with homemade crust but since you want this for breakfast why stress yourself out? I always buy the refrigerated crust because it’s easy and works just fine. This also allows me to focus on the great ingredients that I want to put inside the Quiche. I love playing around with different flavor combinations, I usually go in the veggie direction but love adding salty bacon or pancetta from time to time.

Mushroom & Asparagus Quiche

Yield: Serves 8

Mushroom & Asparagus Quiche

Recipe adapted from Cook's Illustrated Cook Book

Ingredients

  • 1 Refrigerated Pie Crust
  • 8 Oz. Asparagus
  • 1/2 Cup Sliced Cremini Mushrooms
  • 1 Shallot Diced
  • 2 Large Eggs
  • 2 Egg Yolks
  • 1 Cup Milk
  • 1 Cup Heavy Cream
  • 1 Cup Sharp Cheddar Cheese Shredded
  • 1/2 Tsp. Salt
  • 1/2 Tsp. White Pepper
  • Pinch Nutmeg
  • Ice
  • Water

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 375.
  • Allow pie crust to come to room temp on the counter before handling.
  • Cut Asparagus stems so they are evenly sized, you should use your pie pan to determine how long they should be so that they can fit in a nice circle.
  • Heat a medium pot of salted water to a boil.
  • Add Asparagus to the pot and boil until they turn bright green.
  • Transfer the asparagus to an ice bath (ice and water in a bowl) to stop the cooking. Drain & set aside.
  • Dice the mushrooms into small pieces and saute in a pan with the shallots, you can use a little bit of butter but I prefer olive oil.
  • Cook mushrooms until soft. Set aside.
  • Place the pie crust in your pie pan and form to the shape of your pan. Prick the bottom with a fork several times to prevent air bubbles.
  • Place pan with crust in the oven for 10 minutes or until lightly cooked (should not be brown). Remove from oven to cool slightly.
  • Combine eggs, egg yolks, milk, cream, salt, pepper and nutmeg in a bowl. Whisk to combine.
  • To prepare quiche layer the mushroom and shallot mixture on the bottom.
  • Follow with the cup of cheddar cheese, evenly spread around the pan.
  • Place the asparagus in a circular pattern with the tips facing toward the edge of the pan (It's ok if they don't all fit).
  • Place the pie pan on the cooking rack (pulled out from the oven), carefully pour the custard mixture over the asparagus. Some of the pieces may move but that is ok.
  • Slide the rack in to the oven and cook for 32-35 minutes.
  • Quiche is done when a knife inserted comes out clean.
  • Remove from oven and allow to cool.
  • Quiche can be served warm or at room temp, my preference is warm 🙂

    How to host an easy Oscar party

    It’s award season! Time to bust out the champs and don a sparkly dress for the 89th Academy Awards.

    Every year the hubs and I watch the Oscars with our best guesses as to who will walk away with the coveted gold statue. We are the worst at seeing the movies before the big show so sometimes this helps us decide which movies we want to put on our must see list. Of the films nominated for Best Picture we did see Arrival and Hidden Figures. I thought both films were great but I know the others are supposed to be great as well. This year’s race is going to be a tough one but I have everything I need to put together a great party.



    Disclaimer: I’ve partnered with SkinnyPop Popcorn in creating this post but did not receive any form of compensation. All thoughts and opinions are my own. 

    The Oscars are all about celebrating movies and the art of filmmaking. When I think of the movies I think of popcorn. Whenever we go to the movies I usually like to get a small container of popcorn, light on the butter. For whatever reason, I think we end up eating most of it before the movie even begins. I am also a salty & sweet kind of girl so pairing my popcorn with some sort of chocolate candy or something on the sweet side is usually a must. I think there are a lot of people out there who enjoy the salty/sweet combo so you’re party guests will be pleased by this fun and easy popcorn recipe (full recipe below)!

    This recipe is super simple and you can make it minutes before the big show. Whenever you are hosting a party it is always good to have a plan that wont leave you stressed out at the end of the night. Also, I might have really enjoyed drizzling the chocolate all over the popcorn. I mean, you should have fun when entertaining right?

    If we don’t order popcorn at the movies (which is like, never) then we might order some pretzel bites or a hot dog. Is it strange that you can get a hot dog at a movie theater? As I ponder that question you might be asking yourself where this is going. I know the Oscars are fancy and people wear dresses that cost more than my house (oh, geez, I really hope not) but for some reason I just thought pigs in a blanket would be a great addition to the menu (full recipe below). I may have made them slightly more fancy than your typical pigs in a blanket but they are small and delightful.

    Instead of the usual cheddar cheese I opted for gouda and a little spread of honey mustard just for that added touch! Again, simple and easy. Your guests will enjoy popping these in their mouths in between handfuls of popcorn.

    Ok, so we have the food covered and now we have to talk about drinks! There is really only one option for drinks in my opinion, champagne! Since you’ll be spending the whole night listening to acceptance speeches you might as well have a glass of bubbly in your end. I figured my friends would probably want their own bottle because they know how to do parties and it is great that you can get little bottles for occasions just like this.

    To complete your party set up you will need to think about the kind of decorations that will help set the stage (pun intended) for your Oscar party. I really wanted to emphasize the glitz and glam so I went with the gold theme. I even had edible gold star-shaped sprinkles in the popcorn! I really enjoyed putting a gold touch on everything. Thankfully all the craft stores know how to read my mind and are adequately stocked with all things in gold. I think this is where you really get to have fun!

    Now you are all set for your Oscar party. So go fill out your ballot, gather your friends, get cozy on the couch and watch your favorite stars rule the red carpet. Thanks to SkinnyPop Popcorn for providing the fun ballots and helping me get ready for the big show.

    How to host a Narnia themed Dinner Party

    Remember when I told you about my desire to start a dinner club? I think we did it! I think we started a dinner club. It is even more legitimate since I created an Instagram account for it (see here). So, I think whenever you host two dinner parties AND create a social media account you have just started a dinner club. When we started thinking about our winter installment we decided to let a literary classic be the source of our inspiration, C.S. Lewis’ The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe. Here’s how we did it…  

    Our amazing invitation which can be found at Paperless Post.
    • Picking a theme – It turns out that picking a theme can be very hard, especially when you 0r your co-host might not share the same vision right away. For this dinner party we started out by creating a Pinterest board  where we pinned pictures of decorations and food that seemed appropriate for a winter dinner party. Somehow in all of the pinning and discussion we landed on Narnia as our theme. We wanted to stay away from something that was too much like a Christmas dinner and we knew we would host the party after New Years so that was not an option. If you know the story then you know Pevensie children wander through a wardrobe to find themselves in a winter wonderland. We wanted to create that winter wonderland.

      White tablecloths, crystal glasses, candles, and fine china did the trick!
    • Setting the menu – The menu is my favorite part of planning (I am sure you can guess why). I usually get overly excited and since we had such a fun theme to work with, the menu was important. So here’s how the menu planning usually goes (typically over drinks)…

    Me: I know we talked about doing something like Cornish hens but what if we do some sort of red meat or like seafood…oooh maybe like a surf and turf!

    Anna: Oh yeah, that could be really nice! 

    Me: Yeah, like maybe we do steak for 15 people and pair it with fish and like the whole plate is white and the meat is the only color on the plate and it’s just really pure… 

    Anna: Hmm, steak for 15 people you say? Is that going to be hard to pull off? 

    Me: Ooh and how about we do…

    Anna: Hey, remember when we talked about Cornish hens? 

    Me: Yeah, ok, I think we should go back to Cornish hens.

    So we ended up making Cornish Hens, cauliflower mash, roasted mushrooms, and roasted green beans. Everything was easy to execute and truly spoke to the winter season. (See pinterest board for recipes) 

    • Make a cake! – Alright, you don’t have to make a cake to have a successful Narnia themed dinner party but it only seems fitting to have cake at a party. I really wanted to push myself so I decided that my biggest contribution was going to be to make a layered cake with some sort of winter decoration. If you follow this blog then you probably know I don’t typically make cakes. I like to bake but cakes always seemed to fall in the category of being too stressful. I took a deep breath, drank a few cocktails and then got to baking. Anna arrived the next morning to help me finish decorating (she also kept me sane). I was extremely proud of the final product. We also had a Turkish delights in honor of the book but not everyone loved them (you should still make them because they are from the book). 



      The cake was a black magic chocolate cake (recipe on pinterest) with a buttercream frosting.
    • The decorations – I think any winter themed dinner party is going to be a little more fancy than one you might host in the fall. We knew we really wanted to play up the fantasy element but also have fun with it. Our hosts were gracious enough to allow us to use their fine wedding china and fancy glasses. We also pulled together lace tablecloths and candles to make a very elegant dining layout. If you check out our Instagram page you will see some the fur coats and crowns that helped bring home the Narnia theme. I wouldn’t suggest you run out and buy fur coats for just this purpose, we happened to have a friend who had a few lying around, ha!
      We found lace crowns on Pinterest and knew we had to have them so Anna armed herself with spray paint and glue and made sure we all had beautiful crowns to wear.

      We couldn’t have a night in Narnia without Aslan the lion!
    • What to drink – Punch is always a good idea! Our hosts put together a delicious blood orange punch that our guests enjoyed before the meal. They also crafted a beautiful ice mold to go along with it. The punch was a bright way to start the night and since it was winter it was a nice distraction from the winter weather outside. We serve wine with dinner (of course) and ended the evening with some fun cocktails. One of our guests made coffee ice cubes which were a great addition to the kahlua and vanilla vodka cocktails we served with cake. If you want to go alcohol free then I suggest hot cocoa since that is very Narnian.

    That’s how we hosted a Night in Narnia and how easy it is for you to host a winter dinner party with your friends or family! Stay tuned for our spring installment and more adventures with the Pittsburgh Dinner Club.

    January 2017 – Stitch Fix Review

    Happy New Year!!

    Confession: I don’t make New Years resolutions because I don’t really see much value in deciding in January to make major changes or updates to my life. I’d like to give myself the flexibility to do that year-round, less room for error haha! I do however, think it is important to go in to the New Year feeling renewed in some aspect and perhaps willing to try new things. And so, over vacation I decided you get to see more of me (eek, I hope that’s good) because I don’t see many people who look like me or reflect features that I relate to, and I realized if I want that to change then I should be the one out there, duh! So here’s a bit more of me… 

    Have you heard of Stitch Fix? I am sure you have but just in case.. Stitch Fix is a fashion subscription service where a stylist hand picks 5 different clothing items or accessories for you to try on and potentially purchase. They charge a $20.00 styling fee that is then applied to any of your purchases. You can get a fix sent as frequently or as infrequently as you want and you don’t have to purchase anything if you decide not to (note: you lose the styling fee if you don’t buy anything). Everything you get is a surprise and you have 3 days to try things on and decide which items to keep, mail back what you don’t like and repeat. More FAQ on SF here.

    I have been using Stitch Fix for some time now. This was actually my 24th fix, wowza! I first learned about it when a co-worker came in wearing this adorable simple dress for a holiday party and everyone asked her where she got it. She said Stitch Fix, which at the time still had a waiting list. I had some immediate reservations about signing up because she was someone I viewed as being fit and easy to size where as I saw myself as a bit harder in that department (read: curvy and not fit). I am one of those one-size fits all skeptics – “like, yeah no, it will not fit me but let’s try and hope to maintain our dignity”.

    Well anyway, fast forward to today and you can see I got over my fear and took the plunge. I wouldn’t say all fixes were great but I usually found at least one piece that I was willing to add to my wardrobe. SF recently increased their size offerings (up to 16/XXL) and I believe they are preparing to launch a plus-size line this year so size concerns should not be an issue. Also, there is a Stitch Fix for Men which is great for those guys out there who need to spruce up their wardrobes (or spouses/gfs who want to spruce up their guys wardrobe). I have learned a few tricks and tips over the course of my time with them and I wanted to share my latest fix and some notes on how you can get a good fix below.

    Disclaimer: I was not paid or compensated by Stitch Fix to share my thoughts or promote their service. However, I have listed my referral link in the post which grants me a credit if you sign up for your own fix. 

    p.s. I used my phone for these pics (clearly…) and they aren’t the bestests but they’ll do. I’ll probably step up the photo game in future posts but for now I hope you don’t mind. Also – ignore any signs of clutter or chaos in the background, k, thanks!

    • Seychelle – Snare Cozy Shearling Bootie  $150.00

    I told my stylist, Cassie, that I wanted a pair of blue booties that I saw on Pinterest. She said she couldn’t get those exact ones but thought I would enjoy these instead. When I saw these I immediately went “want, want, want!”. Then I looked at the price and said “ok, but only if they are amazing and I just can’t take them off…”. So, long story short… I tried them on and liked them a lot but had some concerns about keeping them clean in our Pittsburgh winter weather. They are suede and thus likely to get stained and dingy in our wet/snowy climate. I also had a hard time with the $150 price tag since I already own a pair of neutral booties. I liked these but wanted to make sure I felt free to wear them without fear of getting dirty.

    Verdict: Returned

    • 41Hawthorn – Donelson Ruffle Blouse $64.00 

    I asked Cassie to send me a shirt/blouse in red. I was thinking I needed a really nice red blouse for work. Something that would brighten up those dreary winter days. I was pretty excited to see this blouse at first but had some concerns about the ruffles (Pirate shirt??). I tried it on and found that it was the cut that was actually least appealing. For some reason I didn’t think it was terribly flattering on me. Thumbs up for color, thumbs down for fit.

    Verdict: Returned

    • Kut from the Kloth – Mollee Knit Dress $88.00

    Here is another item that I pinned to my Pinterest board (notice a trend?) and asked my stylist to send me. I had a feeling this would be a great addition to the wardrobe and the color was perfect! I tried it on and kind of went, “yup!”. This dress is a bit form-fitting (read: curve highlighting) but I was ok with that. The draping details and asymmetrical lines are a nice way of working with that. I already saw myself wearing it to work (note my styling…)!

      

    Vedict: Kept

    • Fate – Rowen Faux Suede Quilted Vest $78.00

    I am really feeling vests and ponchos right now. I put a lot of vest options on Pinterest board so I was glad to see one in this fix. This one was kind of cool because it had all this fun detail. The belt buckle collar and the faux pocket flaps were cute in my opinion. Some people might see these as silly but I liked the detail. I loved the gold accents and thought this would be nice to wear for a casual Friday at the office or even on the weekends. The vest feels well made and sturdy and I think it will get some good wear.

    Verdict: Kept

    • Market & Spruce – Pacci Cowl Neck Sweater $78.00 

    Remember I said I was really feeling ponchos? Cassie clearly took note of the ponchos and cowl neck sweaters I pinned to my board. I was excited to try this one on since it immediately looked cozy. The minute I put it on I knew it was too big (note the sleeves). The sweater felt well made but just too big.

    Verdict: Returned*

    *Stitch Fix has added an exchange feature for this reason but given that I now have two ponchos in my closet and the grey was just not exciting enough to keep I decided it was ok to just return.

    In Summary:

    I thought this was pretty good fix. I kept 2 out of the 5 items which is pretty on par for me. Over time I have learned that your Pinterest board can be your best friend. I have tried to pin individual pieces instead of outfits. I want to make sure my stylist knows what I am looking for exactly instead of seeing a whole outfit. SF does not send you pieces that are designed to be a complete outfit but they give you outfit suggestions on little picture cards (see below). Also, after each fix I go in and do a sweep of my board, removing things that no longer appeal to me or are similar to something I just bought or received. Adding a note on the pin saying what you like about the item is also a good way to get your stylist thinking of what to select for you.

    Style Suggestion Card

    It is also important to give detailed feedback when checking out. This helps your stylist know why you are returning items so they can stay away from those items in the future. If you need a very specific piece i.e., a dress for a wedding or a blazer for work it is best to be very specific and say what kind of wedding you are attending or what style you prefer. Giving your stylist examples will always help them so they can find something similar. If you like your stylist you can request the same stylist for your future fixes by saying “Same stylist” in your note, if you don’t specify they will sometimes give you a new stylist.

    Having Stitch Fix has greatly reduced the number of visits I make to the mall, honestly I find I go to an actual store maybe once a month. I have found that it is much easier to try things on at home and for you moms out there I bet this would be a godsend! Ready to sign-up, click here!
