Stitch Fix Updates: February and March

So not only have I been failing to write new blog posts, but the ones I need to write I threw stuff out!

So I usually do a Stitch Fix review after every box, but I forgot after my February box and then I got my March box and I was like “I forgot February!” Then I realized I tossed BOTH sheets with the item info on it. So sadly this post is a picture recap. I don’t have the names of the clothes, or the prices.

I will try to get my shit together for next time, promise.

What I can tell you is I bought my whole February box.

February Dress

Love this dress. It’s prefect for work.

February Top and Pants

These pants I wear all the time. The top I loved, but after washing it once it shrunk :(

February Striped Top and Vest

Big fan of this top. I wore it for my work head shot! This vest is also comfy, but hard to pair stuff with.

My March box was not as great, but still fun. I want to blame my weight gain on not liking a lot of the stuff.

March Top and Pants

This top was the only thing I kept. The pants had a fun pattern, but were too tight.

March Top and Necklace

This sweater was cute. It had a large stripe pattern, but you couldn’t see it with a tank under it. The necklace was just too much of a statement for me.

March Jacket

This was a jacket, but I felt it was more like a cardigan. The lace pattern was just too much for me.

I am looking forward to my next fix. They have shoes now! I also asked for more spring items.

If you don’t have Stitch Fix yet, get on it!

Mediterranean Cruise: Corfu, Greece

Sunday took us to Corfu, Greece. I wanted to go on this cruise because it was one of the few that went to Greece. Corfu isn’t the most popular port, but it was nice.

Corfu, Greece

We got off the boat and decided to walk downtown. I kept forgetting walking for me and Cheryl was a lot different than walking for my mom, aunt and uncle.

We saw a pirate ship on the way!

Corfu, Greece

We also went past the new fort.

Corfu, Greece

The old town was a cool area. We were there early so shops were opening up as we were walking around.

Corfu, Greece

We bought some souvenirs and then headed to the old fort.

Corfu, Greece

It was a few ear each to go in, but it had a high hill overlooking the water where we wanted to take pictures.

Corfu, Greece

The hill was a steep climb so my mom and aunt stayed at the cafe in the fort.

The fort was also a prison. It was cool walking around looking at everything.

Corfu, Greece

The walk uphill was slippery. The rocks were slick from all the people that used them. Luckily there were handrails to keep me from falling.

Corfu, Greece

The view was awesome!

We headed back down and had some cold drinks in the cafe. It was hot again. That’s what we get for going on a cruise in the summer.

Corfu, Greece

Then we walked around more. Most of the shops were open now.

Corfu, Greece

I wish I had worn my bathing suit. There were people swimming in the water, but to go back to the boat and come back again would have been silly.

Corfu, Greece

That night the one restaurant turned itself into Le Cirque, a famous NYC restaurant. The food was good and there was an awesome sunset outside.

Corfu, Greece

That night Jeremy took over the main lounge and did a one man show. The fact that Jeremy could play the piano, harmonica and guitar made me realize I wish I could play at least one instrument.

Corfu, Greece

We were starting on our last few days of the cruise!

July Stitch Fix

Molly is the best stylist. Sadly after this month I am switching to an every other month order until I figure out my finances.

Weston Faux Wrap Dress

The first thing I tried on was this Weston Faux Wrap Dress. I loved the pattern and the fit. The best was that it looks like a wrap dress, but doesn’t come apart like one! It was only $68 too which is cheaper than dresses I have gotten before. Keep!

Astrid Tie Neck Blouse and Karla Textured Short

Next I paired together the Astrid Tie Neck Blouse and Karla Textured Short.

When I pulled the shirt out of the box I was in love. Unfortunately it was HUGE on me. Again I know baggy and flowy is a style right now, but it just doesn’t flatter me. Had it fit I would have definitely paid the $54 for it.

I had been asking for lace shorts for a while now. I really liked these because they weren’t ALL lace and they were a fun color. They also weren’t super tight on my legs. The best part was they were only $44!

Siena Cropped Pant

Next in my fix was the Siena Cropped Pant. The color was really fun and I actually like this combo with the top (from Express), but the fit wasn’t right. They hugged in weird places and were baggy in others. Also for $58 they were pricey for not fitting well.

Hillcrest Mixed Media Chevron Necklace

Last was this Hillcrest Mixed Media Chevron Necklace. Chevrons are really the best shape. It was only $28 too!

So I wound up keeping 3 things and sending 2 back. I begged them to keep Molly as my stylist because even though two things didn’t fit right I still LOVED the style.

My mom has been talking about my fixes for a while now and I finally convinced her to sign up!

New Orleans Cemetery Tour

New Orleans Cemetery Tour

New Orleans is famous for their unique funerals and cemeteries. On our recent trip we decided we wanted to go on a tour of the cemeteries.

We used Spirit Tours, but there are a bunch of different tours available. The tour was only $25. You MUST take a tour of the cemetery. You can no longer enter the cemeteries without a tour guide.

Our tour started out in the French Quarter. Our guide walked us around and explained the history of the city.

He showed us some old houses where movies have been filmed.

It was a really nice day to be walking around New Orleans.

New Orleans Cemetery Tour

Because of New Orleans high water table, the bodies need to be buried above ground. Before, when they were below ground, the water would rise and they would float around the city.

We visited one of the more famous cemeteries, Cemetery #1, near the French Quarter.

Most of the crypts are by family. A lot of family members can be buried in each crypt, but not all at once.

Even the crypts, which are very heavy, are slowly sinking into the ground.

A lot of the crypts are very old and in disrepair. The church doesn’t take them away from any families, but unless someone pays them to upkeep them they can fall apart.

The reason you have to take guided tours through the cemeteries now is because there has been a lot of vandalism and theft. It’s pretty sad that people would destroy such historic works or art or someone’s tomb.

Sometimes tombs can be bought by families. This will be the final resting place of Nicholas Cage (yes the actor). He built this pyramid tomb and (without permission) fixed up the tombs around it.

New Orleans Cemetery Tour

The whole place was a mixture of old and new. One crypt could be crumbling and falling apart and the one next to it looking brand new.

A lot of the larger tombs were built by societies. The members would then be put there when they died. Hundreds of bodies are in each of these crypts.

At the back of the cemetery is the Protestant section (it’s a Catholic cemetery). The graves are not as large and dramatic. Most have sunk underground and then the church digs them up and restores them.

The reason this cemetery is so famous is because the famous voodoo priestess Marie Laveau is buried there.

She made voodoo famous and a lot of people aren’t even sure if she is buried there. People leave crazy offerings at her tomb and write on it. They have been trying to keep it fixed up and get rid of offerings when people bring them.

New Orleans Cemetery Tour

The entire cemetery was very interesting. I am glad I was able to see this piece of history.

I highly recommend going on a tour if you are in New Orleans, but remember you have to take a guided tour. There are other cemeteries you can visit on other tours. There are hundreds of cemeteries all over New Orleans, but remember they are sacred burial grounds. Be respectful.
