Stitch Fix : Round Five (Vlog!)

Another week, another Stitch Fix post! I know, I know. I thought I'd make this one a little more fun (or at least less redundant) by doing it in a vlog! I don't do many vlogs... not sure why. But I think it's because I get severely embarrassed before I even hit "record"... seriously. And I say "um" a lot and have weird mannerisms and of course talk like the world is ending in 30 seconds and I have a whole chapter to recite. Whatever. Here I am in all my weird speech glory! Take it or leave it! ;) (There's also some audio/video lag... sorry! It didn't have the best time when exporting from iMovie... I think at a few spots it actually repeats what I say... Whoops! Newb!)


If you don't have time to watch the video or can't stomach 11 minutes of my jabbering, here's a text version, too. (Beware, the colors are all wonky thanks to the sun going in and out of the clouds in my office!)
BB Dakota - $90
This dress is such a beautiful color. Much like another BB Dakota dress I have, the Kelly green is a nice surprise in my closet. I would never in a million years pick this dress up off the rack to try on, but I really did love it. The crepe fabric, the asymmetrical cut, and even the wrap... yep, I'm not normally a wrap dress fan. It makes me feel instantly classy. Mike has already requested that I wear it this weekend for his birthday. We'll see. ;) (You can buy it here!)

Aryn K. - $88
This was a really beautiful dress, even with the strange loin-cloth type front. I really had hoped it would work. It fit, but just wasn't perfect. Like my video said, "a leeeeetle tight on the bum!" I did appreciate the bright color though! If you're on the hunt for a beautiful dress to wear to a wedding or something, snag this one up! (You can buy it here!)

Jarlo - $94
This dress is PERFECT! Perfect! I'll take one in every single color please! The cut, the heart print mesh at the top, the sweetheart bust... I want a million of them. Can you just picture how precious it'd be in red and pink and yellow and green and purple, etc? Yeah, overkill, whatever. Another one of those dresses that I'd wear every day! 

Line & Dot - $99
Okay, no. I can't get behind the crochet/embroidered dresses with the weird shoulders/bust and then the smocked waist. I feel like it's everything I hate in a dress, all wrapped into one. Actually that just sounds harsh. The color was beautiful and I would have actually loved it if the bottom had been longer, and if the smocked waist were just in the back... and maybe if the top actually had a shape. I wanted to like it, I did. But I didn't. Not much else I can say about that! ;) 

Marlyn Schiff - $28
These earrings were beautiful, but last week I mentioned I forgot to say "No earrings!" in my questionnaire. Whoops! They were a great price, too. I considered keeping them for a friend or my mom, but just didn't think they fit anyone's style well enough. I promptly edited my questionnaire to say no earrings though :)

And as always, here's an invite link to sign up for Stitch Fix if you're into the idea! Leave a link below if you've done a review since the last time! ;) I wanna see your goodies so I'll know what to ask for specifically next time! haha xo

PS; Hopefully I wasn't too painfully awkward to watch in vlog form. I'd like to do more in the future, but I gotta get over my weird video-phobia! ;) Let me know if you'd like to see any specific videos! (also, I have really bad posture.)

  1. Holy cow you have the cutest slight southern accent! It's always fun to see and hear the bloggers talk and interact rather than just seeing pictures :)

    1. I definitely hide it a lot >.< I don't know why... I've always kind of downplayed my accent because I'm like self conscious about it. Halfway through the first take I told Mike "UH I SOUND SO STUPID! I'M TOTALLY CHANGING MY VOICE. LIKE NOW!" haha

      Delete
    2. I don't think you sound stupid at all! I wasn't expecting it, but you have a lovely voice :) I know the feeling though….I hate the sound of my voice on camera so I try to avoid it as much as possible on my blog.

  2. You are really cute in videos. You always make me smile :) So keep on vlogging! I really love the green dress!

  3. I would love see you do more v-logs! You are adorable :) Posting videos like this really allows readers to connect with you on a more personal level.. I feel like most bloggers are so concerned with protecting their "my-life-is-a-fairy-tale" image, they won't do things like that because it actually shows that they are, in fact, human, like the rest of us lol not just pretty entities captured in photography land. Also, I lovvve your southern accent. I am a southern girl myself, so it's so refreshing to hear a fellow southern gal.. not another neutral, phony accent. lol Anyway, /longcomment! Xo, Rachel

  4. when you send the items back do you have to pay for the shipping? i'm sorry if i missed that. i'm so picky when it comes to getting clothes online because i need to try them on, even if it's a tshirt lol. i'm a weird shape ;) anyway, i love your voice! don't be embarrassed :)

  5. CUTE CUTE CUTE! I love the vlog. Your accent is seriously way cute...I wish I could make mine just a little less noticeable like yours. I'm so with you on the smocked waist! I've never enjoyed smocking of any kind unless it's on kid clothes.

  6. I don't think you're awkward at all! You're adorable! Plus, I love listening to your sweet accent. That green dress does look super pretty. Hope we get to see it on you!

  7. i thought your video was sweet & very unawkward haha
    i adore that green dress, kelly green is my go to color and the style is so pretty! more vlogs would be fun, i think we all love your accent :)

  8. You have thee most cutest accent ever. And you are so sweet. I actually watched the whole thing cause I liked your voice so much. More vlogs please!

    ReplyDelete
  9. Kaelah,do more vlogs,please! And no,you don't sounds stupid/weird/whatever. I'd probably feel the same if I did a vlog though,haha. Secondly,I love the BB Dakota & Jarlo dresses - they're too cute! Happy Tuesday!

  10. Just chiming in to say I watched the whole thing after I read the post because you're just so freakin' cute. It would be even better if we could see what the dresses look like on you, though. Just sayin'! :)

  11. Just chiming in to say I watched the whole video even after reading the post because you're so freakin' cute. It would be even better if we got to see what the dresses look like on you, though. I'm one of those people that have a hard time imagining what it actually looks like on.

  12. I loved the vlog and don't be embarrassed by your accent, embrace it . I use mine to get out of speeding tickets, for some odd reason cops in Texas don't give tickets to girls with a sweet southern accent.

  13. Loved the vlog lady! Your accent is adorable and your presentation flawless. It's always cool to see/hear the person behind the blog posts every now and then. Great SF post too! I'm hunting down that black dress right now; perfect addition to my closet (:

    ReplyDelete
  14. i know this is basically what everyone else is saying, but i love watching vlogs from bloggers, because i think it's interesting to see the voice and mannerisms of people you've been reading about for so long. and you are absolutely adorable :)

    ReplyDelete
  15. I really love this stitch fix posts. I don't even know why.. You give such a good explanation for every item etc. I just like to see how you 'shop' I guess. And you definitely have to do more vlogs, indeed!

    ReplyDelete
  16. you are so country..in the cutest way!! haha you're adorable! most of my family is from the south so i'm the "yankee", always get made fun of for not talking with an accent haha wish i had one! that black heart/mesh dress is so perfect!

    ReplyDelete
  17. The Jarlo link isn't work, but I love the dress! Where is it available online?

    ReplyDelete
  18. Aw, you're sweet on video! You have a lovely voice and do you not say "um" too much. :D Loved seeing your blog and I hope you'll do more in the future!

    ReplyDelete
  19. Love your voice!!! I'm always really self conscious of mine as Its so up and down, high and low. You have a lovely tone! Xx

    ReplyDelete
  20. You are so cute! Somewhere different from what I imagined you to be but so much cuter and nicer and I love your voice! Don't want to be a kiss-ass, but I mean it :) xx

    1. Somewhat. Obviously. Haha. Autocorrect >:(

  21. You should make more videos! I enjoy watching them. You're making me want to sign up for stitchfix so bad!

    ReplyDelete
  22. I think your accent is adorable. I thought I'd get that out of the way first.
    Second I would love to watch more vlogs of yours, the presentation was really good and very engaging. Makes me wish there was a Stitch Fix style thing in Australia!

    ReplyDelete
  23. Okay, first, the obvious thing, your accent is awesome. I could listen to it all day...you know, in a not creepy way.
    Second, I really enjoyed watching this vlog (and it looks like quite a few people have) so don't be afraid to do more! Last I'm pretty jealous there isn't a Stitch Fix style thing in Australia yet, it's such a good concept!

    ReplyDelete
  24. Okay, you are just the cutest thing. Looove the vlog. I'm really loving that green dress and I second Mike, I definitely think it would be an excellent little birthday dress! (Or perhaps a nice bachelorette outfit?) Is this box using the same price point as your previous ones did? I'm really wanting to try stitch fix but am terrified that I'll pretty much want to buy everything and wave goodbye to my paycheck...pretty dresses do that to me :) Can't wait to see more of your vlogging!

    ReplyDelete
  25. I loved your video! Although I have been following your blog for awhile, this is the first video that I have watched of yours and your accent is soooo sweet!
    More videos please! :)

  27. Your vlog wasn't at all awkward. You're a complete natural and just adorable! Ditto on needing the Jarlo dress in every color!

  28. Adorable :) wicked accent! Keep up the vlogging

    ReplyDelete
  29. Your accent is really sweet Kaelah! It would be pretty rad if you made weekly vlogs, your decision to make one was clearly a step in the right direction. :)

    ReplyDelete
  30. I just got my first box last week, it had a variety of items and I only kept one. I'm looking forward to my next one to see what they'll put in there!! :)

    ReplyDelete
  31. Hi Kaelah! I recently did a stitch fix (they sent me that same orange wrap dress). I was pretty dissatisfied with the whole thing, but I'm considering trying it again but being much more specific about what I do and do not want. I did it in this post:http://letitberawphotography.blogspot.com/2012/04/stitch-fix-and-me.html

    ReplyDelete
  32. I loved your vlog! Your accent is charming! For some reason when I read your blog you never sounded like that in my head, pretty weird right? And you are awesome and adorable on camera, I always feel like a dork too ;)

    ReplyDelete
  33. I love your vlogs! Your accent is adorable! :D
    And thanks for recommending Stitch Fix! I'm on my second box, and it really is very cool. :)

    ReplyDelete
  34. Ughhhhhh I cannot handle your adorableness. CANNOT. Your voice/accent is wonderful, and it makes me long to revisit my southern roots (was born in Ar and the majority of my extended family still lives there even though I don't).

    ReplyDelete
  35. you are sooo adorable! Loved this video! I'd actually wear the Line & Dot dress if it was a different color and just throw a belt on the waist!

  36. I think we need these stitch fix subscription boxes in Oz... although my purse disagrees

  37. You are so pretty and sweet and articulate and I am lovinggg that accent! I hope I develop one over the next few years ;) (highly unlikely because hi.. I grew up on Long Island)

  38. oh my gosh you are too cute! great vlog!

  39. LOVED watching your vlog - you're very sweet and soft spoken but not in that obnoxiously over the top cute way. Just the right mix of cute and smart! :P And you've got the sweetest smile, I love watching vlogs and am glad I finally got to see one of yours!

    That green dress is fantaaaaaaaastinc, I'm seriously considering singing up for stitch fix just to see what they'd send me :S the intrigue is getting to me!

  40. your accent is adorable!:) I have a slight southern accent too. Whenever I first meet people, I always try to hide it but it always end up creeping its way out of my mouth! So woo hoo for southern accents! :)

    ReplyDelete
  41. Loved your video! It was so cute.

    ReplyDelete
  42. Wish they did it for Australia!!! Sounds like a rad idea.

    I also prefer a-line type dresses and smocked waisted dresses are quite unusual, aren't they! Ridiculous.

    Hope they come to Aus soon, i'd jump at that opportunity!!

  44. Oh my gosh you are freaking gorgeous! Love this video and your accent.

  45. Sooooooooooooooooooo expensive! Even with a discount.

    ReplyDelete

    1. I think "expensive" is a relative term. To some, yes. To others, dirt cheap. (I'm more on the "it's expensive!" side, but I'm also looking for more long lasting/quality pieces, and I won't get that on a Forever 21 budget) :)

  46. Stitchfix seems really neat! Great job with the video. Maybe it was just me, but the audio and video weren't totally in sync after the first few minutes. :( Otherwise you should definitely do more!

    ReplyDelete
  47. Love the vlog!! I love hearing what bloggers sound like and their mannerisms, it's usually completely different than what I imagined. I've been wanting to do one but I still haven't mustered up the courage!
    BTW love the dresses!

    ReplyDelete
  48. You are the cutest! Seeing you on video makes you seem so relatable. I signed up for an invite to stitch fix, it's right up my alley... but could also be dangerous for my bank account. oh well!

    ReplyDelete
  49. First of all, I just have to say, you have the cutest accent in the world. Like, it makes me want to move down South (I live in the Midwest) in order to aquire such an accent.

    Anyways, I THINK that this is the same dress as the green BB Dakota dress, but for only $83: http://www.modcloth.com/shop/dresses/ivy-got-a-feeling-dress
    The color on the picture doesn't really match, but the reviews say it's actually much more of a green than it appears to be in the picture. So if anyone wants to save $7!

  50. I don't think you were awkward at all! I love your accent and you seem so cute and sweet! Definitely do more vlogs!

    ReplyDelete
  51. You voice just blew me away! It's definitely not what I expected! I've seemed to have attributed a made up voice to you from the way to express things when you write. But alas, it was the complete opposite. It was better! Perhaps like the time I read Harry Potter as a child and had my world tuned upside down at the release of the first movie. Either way, quite the successful first vlog!!
