Stitch Fix #2

 OK, so I tried Stitch Fix again since I took Dressing Your Truth.  I made specific requests and I feel that they did take into consideration many of them.  I truly do not like to shop and I wanted to see again what they sent me.
I just love opening surprises!  It's like Christmas.  I received 5 items: 3 shirts, 1 cardigan and 1 pair of pants.  The colors were gorgeous although two of them did not follow my color card.  But thankfully, the one item I liked did!
Here is what I received.  What do you think I picked?  I chose something that I could wear with multiple things and what I really needed.  You guessed it, the cardigan.  It's the coral color.  I tried it on and fell in love.  One thing I learned from Dressing Your Truth is that you need to LOVE what you have to wear. 

I am not easy to please and I truly appreciate the time and effort that Miranda made to put together this Stitch Fix.  I was very honest with what I thought of each piece so hopefully that will help them to better style my Stitch Fix.

And since I'm not planning to shop much this summer, I scheduled my next Stitch Fix for August.

    When Calls the Heart...A Telling Silence DVD Review + Giveaway!!

    When Calls the Heart (A Telling Silence) has two stories combined in one movie.  The town of Coal Valley is still reeling from the mine explosion taking several men from the community and leaving devastated families.  Elizabeth Thatcher is a young teacher who left her affluent life to be where she belongs by helping these families move ahead and look toward a bright future.  She loves her students and is concerned for young Rosaleen who has not spoken since her father was killed.  One day Rosaleen goes missing and Elizabeth is desperate to find her.  She enlists Jack Thornton, the town constable and close friend to help her.  In the midst of this little girl's disappearance, Jack discovers that one of the widows has some whale oil in her shed which looked to be the cause of the church fire that occurred three months prior.  All of these events are swirling around with secrets being kept and Elizabeth and Jack sorting out their feelings for each other as well as for the friends that they are trying to protect.

    It's another great family movie filled with mystery and hope for a small town.  Elizabeth has a heart of gold and makes everyone in her path feel loved and respected.  She is always ready to fight for her students and give up her comforts to sacrifice for those she has come to love in this small mining town rocked by tragedy.  It's fun to watch her interaction with her students, the parents, the townspeople and of course, Jack Thornton.
