April Stitch Fix Review

I feel like it's been so long since I've done a Stitch Fix review that I probably need to start all over and explain everything, but for the sake of time let's agree on a couple of things. First, I'm about to copy and paste from a previous post. Second, you are welcome to keep on scrolling down to the good stuff is this is all familiar and you just wanna see what goodies were in that beautiful box already!!!


Here's the other thing. Since my last Stitch Fix post, I have purchased a new computer and soon after had to have said new computer's hard drive wiped clean and restored to its original factory settings because I got lucky enough to have a virus completely destroy my computer before I even had a chance to mess it up on my own. I lost my photos and all my software.

That means no photo editing software is currently at my disposal, man.

I used a free Windows 8 app to tinker with these a little, but there are nothing like what I'm used to being able to give ya. Forgive me?

Here we go.

Super Quick Recap of Stitch Fix:

  • Sign up and get excited because you DON'T have to go to mall to shop for clothes! 
  • Fill out your detailed Style Profile. Be very, VERY honest. 
  • Start a Pinterest board dedicated to your personal style and include a link to it in your Style Profile. This is invaluable information for you stylist to chose the best items for you! 
  • Schedule your first "Fix" and work yourself up into a frenzy as your personal stylist chooses some great clothes for you to try on
  • Pay your $20 styling fee and wait for the goodies to arrive on your doorstep
  • Receive a box full of items hand-picked by a personal stylist, just for you, based on your profile and your requests. 
  • Try everything on, keep what you want, send back what you don't. (The $20 styling fee comes off the price of anything you choose to keep and if you buy all 5 items, you get a 25% discount!)

P.S. If you see anything pictured here that you would like your stylist to try out on you, PIN IT to that Pinterest board you share with your stylist. Make notes on the Pin about why you like it - the fit, the style, the color, whatever! The more info, the better your Fix. Swearsies.

Kensie Rebekah Contrast Detail Blazer - $88.00
Street Level Parvin Reversible Hang Tag Detail Tote - $48.00

Here is a perfect example of why that Pinterest board is such a good idea. I saw this top on Pinterest in someone else's Fix and I immediately put it on my own board with a very subtle hint to my stylist. Pretty sure it was something like "PRETTY. MAMA WANT."

Well, Mama got it.

The lace sleeves on this blouse are just dreamy. It covers enough of my upper arm that I don't feel like I'm waving twice when greeting a friend and just makes me feel all classy and stuff. My stylist, Patrice, also sent this fabulous blazer because I'm pretty sure I wrote the word "blazer" about 14 times in my notes to her.

Side Note: I absolutely cannot read the name "Patrice" without growling it like Robin from HIMYM. So sorry, Patrice. I'm sure you're delightful.

Here are these three items together - the lace sleeve top, the blazer, and the reversible tote. Now, the sleeves on the blazer are a little short for me, but I decided to suck it up and keep it anyway because blazers are my jam and everything else fit so nice.

Just so you can get a feel for this bag, check out how much it holds. That's a 15.6" laptop, friends. I also have a Bible, a notebook, my wallet that was likely overflowing with pennies and Culver's tokens, and a bag of pens in there. Now, I wouldn't call it big enough or rugged enough to be a full-time laptop bag, but it works in a pinch. I love using it as a work tote though!

Here is the blazer and bag with another outfit. I'm willing to fork over a little cheddar for a blazer because they are magic.

 Pixley Yaiza Printed Wrap Dress - $78.00

When I first pulled this dress out of the box, I wasn't so sure about it. The print threw me off a bit. When I tried to actually put it on, I was straight up confused. It was like trying to solve a puzzle box or something. Once I realized how to actually work a wrap dress and got it on, I LOVED IT. I wore it with leggings and black riding boots and I was so comfortable. It really creates a nice waistline.

Market & Spruce Corinna Striped Dolman Top - $48.00

I wish you could feel how soft this top is. It's sooooo comfy. I love that it is really long so I can tuck it in if I want, but it leaves me enough room to cover my trouble zones and my booty if needed. I wear this probably more than any other item I got in this Fix.

So, for those of you keeping score at home, I did keep all five items in this fix which means.......25% discount! 

Want to look back through my previous Stitch Fix boxes to get a better idea of what this is all about? Click on over this way, friend. It's my favorite way to not shop for clothes and the idea of having to go back to the mall to shop straight up terrifies me.
