May Stitch Fix Review

In Fashion, Uncategorized by Madison Mayberry6 Comments

Last time we chatted about Stitch Fix, I was quite unhappy. I felt that my requests had been ignored and I wasn’t getting pieces that really matched my style. After expressing my frustration, the team at Stitch Fix e-mailed me to get specific feedback (in detail) about what I was looking for in my fix and what I was unhappy about. Their customer service was fantastic! I explained that I was only looking for classic pieces and basics, that I … Read More

Creating a Capsule Wardrobe

In Fashion, Uncategorized by Madison Mayberry8 Comments

You know those weekly roundups that people do on their blogs? I love them. Although I don’t currently have my own version on Espresso and Cream, I soak up the roundups from other people. Recently my dear friend Laura posted a round-up which included a link to the blog Un-Fancy. It was all about creating a capsule wardrobe. If you’re like me and have no idea what a capsule wardrobe is, then check this post out. As I was reading … Read More

Stitch Fix April Review

In Fashion, Uncategorized by Madison Mayberry29 Comments

It’s been a while since I did a Stitch Fix review, but that doesn’t mean I haven’t still been receiving boxes every month. To be honest, I was just a little lazy when it came to snapping photos of my last two fixes, so I had nothing to share. But now that we have more sunlight (aka time to snap nice photos) the reviews have returned. In the past, I’ve been very vocal about my love for Stitch Fix. It’s … Read More

Face Shapes and Makeup

In Fashion, Uncategorized by Madison Mayberry6 Comments

When it comes to makeup, I will be the first to tell you that I know very little. I rarely mix-up my look, I tend to stick with the same neutral eye shadow for work and special occasions, and the idea of lip color scares me to death. I think my experience with wearing too much makeup in middle school really scarred me for life. Sure, I wear makeup most days, but I don’t wear much. I’ve always wanted to … Read More

November Stitch Fix Review

In Fashion, Uncategorized by Madison Mayberry8 Comments

Another month and it’s high time I did another Stitch Fix Review! I slacked on documenting my fix last month and returned my items before I had a chance to document what I kept and returned. I’m back on the ball for November. This month’s fix was a bit of a mixed bag. There were a couple items I really liked and a few that left me scratching my head. By far, my most successful fix was the box I … Read More

My Latest Stitch Fix Box Review

In Fashion by Madison Mayberry10 Comments

Right before we left for our trip to Italy, I received my latest box of Stitch Fix goodies. Perfect timing, right? I was even more excited about the fact that this was the best box I’ve received yet! I fell in love with three out of the five items that were sent my way, which I would consider a big win. Since the weather is starting to get cool around these parts, I was also excited that the items I … Read More

Hello, friends! It’s been a while, hasn’t it? Joe and I just got back from the most wonderful 10-day-long vacation in Italy and I’m just now sitting down to my computer for the first time in just as many days. It’s been one of the most amazing trips I’ve ever taken, and I can’t wait to share all about it! My mind is already swimming with ideas on posts about packing light (we only traveled with backpacks), amazing Italian recipes … Read More

My Stitch Fix Story

In Fashion, Uncategorized by Madison Mayberry10 Comments

It’s no surprise I love Stitch Fix, is it? I know, I sound like a broken record. But I’ve had so much fun with the service, so when the Stitch Fix team asked me if I wanted to be featured on their blog with four other of their favorite bloggers I jumped at the chance! Of course, we all know that I’m not a fashion blogger, and sometimes I tend to fall into a bit of a rut with my … Read More

This Month’s Stitch Fix Review

In Fashion by Madison Mayberry8 Comments

Happy Monday, friends! I hope you had a great long weekend. Joe and I stayed close to home this weekend since Joe had to work on Friday and I didn’t. It was so relaxing not to have to travel and to enjoy a mini little stay-cation in our city. Major bonus? It was super quiet in the city! We ate at a restaurant that’s usually super busy and didn’t have to wait for a table, played a ton of tennis … Read More

Life Lately (Outfit Edition)

In Fashion by Madison Mayberry6 Comments

Happy Friday, friends! Do you have any big plans for the weekend? Joe and I had an absolutely crazy weeek! We started taking tennis lessions through our city’s adult summer recreation program and the classes are on Monday and Wednesday nights. On Tuesday I met a friend for a drink after work and got my hair colored (blonde, blonde, blonde!) and Joe played in a competitive yard game league (?!) on Thursday night. Tonight? I’m ready to sit on my … Read More
