Captain America

Joan and I took a trip downtown this week for a Girls Night Out. We thought we would grab dinner and check out the set where they are filming Captain America. We happened to stumble upon them actually filming a scene when we first got there.

This was the view from where they let us stand... well let's just say that was not good enough to see anything. So, we went on an adventure to get a closer look.

Still not good enough!! So, when they were between run throughs, we cut through and caught the next picture.

They were very serious about having cell phones out while walking through as they don't want any leaking of who will be starring in it. They kept Captain America well hidden from view.

Here's Joan sneaking around in past the blocked gates... watch out you are about to get in trouble Joan!!

After sneaking around, we found a corner to stand on that was pretty close to the action. We did catch a little video of the the filming in action but for some reason that video won't upload.

Then it was dinner time!! I just had to share the next picture of my Jale Berry martini. It was blueberry and jalepeno! One would think that's a hot mess, but it was delicious!!

After dinner, we went back to the set and were able to walk through (not in the street though or you get yelled at!) We did get the pictures of the beat up cars though!

I told Joan that we are not allowed to hang out in places where we get into this much trouble anymore. We were sneaking around like teenagers and I'm too old to be scared like that!

Stitch Fix Review

It's time for a Stitch Fix review again. I actually have 2 fixes for review. I didn't post my last one- got lazy with the blog overall. Time just slips away.

If you are not familiar with Stitch Fix, it is a fun online personal stylist shopping experience. My post here explains the full process of getting a fix!

So, I'm going to start with my latest fix I received yesterday. First, I received a cute dress called Santina. 

I really loved this dress and wanted to keep it soooo badly. But, it was a smidge too tight in the chest. So, it had to go back :(

Next up is a dress called Fenn.

I loved this dress too!! It was a perfect fit and style. But, it held a hefty price so reluctantly, this one had to go back too.
 Plus, my darling dear daughter told me it looked like Grandma's wallpaper. I thought it was pretty.

Next up is the Dorian blazer.

As you can see my darling dear daughter loved the blazer, but me... not so much. I'm not a blazer type of gal. I would rather put on a cardigan than a blazer. So, it went back too. 

This next piece is a cute top from Mystree called Elly.

I love the top!! It has tiny cutout triangles on the white stripes. It is formed fitting and just really nice looking. This is a keeper!! I need some white shorts to go with it or a white skirt!

Next up, Rosy long-sleeve dress... get ready...

It's scandalous!! I think I would really like the dress with some leggings, but I really wanted something I could wear now... it's summer and in the 80's so leggings are out! I contemplated keeping it to wear in the fall, but in the end decided to schedule another fix asking for something more for summer and not quite so short!

So, 1 item was the winner from that fix even though I did like some of the other things. Overall, my stylist- Jackie, is pretty good at getting my style on target. She knows I love leggings and dresses, but just not in the summer!

Okay, on to the fix that I didn't blog last month.

Up first, Chris and Carol Mac tank... Love!!

 It is a shear tank with extra material in the back that is flowy. I love it! It was keeper and I have worn it on a few occasions already!

Next, a colorblock cardigan.

 My stylist hit the nail on the head with a cardigan like this as I already own it's twin! So, it had to go back.

Next up, Adeline jersey dress by 209 West.

I love the dress!!! I love that it has the rope belt and it is a great fit! Another keeper!

Next up, the necklace... I'm sorry I can't remember the name of it. But, I loved it and it was a keeper too!

And, the final piece was a dress...

I really liked the style of this dress. It had tiny flowers on it and was cute but the girls were trying to bust out of the buttons on the top and we can't have that! So, it had to go back.

Overall, I love my fixes. My stylist really has a feel for what I like. If you are interested in trying out Stitch Fix, follow my referral link and I will get credit :)
