Spring Style Has Arrived
My latest Stitch Fix is my 25th! Can you believe it?! I sure can’t. My box arrived last week and I waited a couple days for good enough lighting to take photos. I’m still working out where and when to get the best light in our new home. Currently we’re getting some really nice late afternoon light in our living room, and I’m pretty happy with how my pics turned out this time. MUCH better than last time!
I was excited by the mix of colors and patterns of my items when I pulled them out of the box:
What is Stitch Fix?
In case you’re not familiar with Stitch Fix , it’s a subscription-based personal styling service for women, men, and kids. It’s free to create an account and complete a style profile. Once you schedule a Fix, a stylist selects five pieces of clothing, accessories, or shoes for you. When the Fix arrives you have three days to try the items on and decide which ones you want to purchase. You’ll find more info on how it works at the bottom of this post.
March 2019 Styling Notes
Stitch Fix assigned Jennifer to style me again. I didn’t input any notes or specific requests prior to this Fix; I kinda wanted to just see what my stylist would come up with. Jennifer sent me two tops, a cardigan, a dress, and a jumpsuit. Everything looked super promising on the styling cards…three different floral prints? Yes please!
The first piece I tried on was the Fun2fun Zahari Split Neck Blouse ($38), a super cute, sheer red top with a small black-and-white floral print. Honestly, it’s not something I would be drawn to in the store but when I tried it on I liked it. The cut is a little boxy, but it looks good with a half tuck like you see below. I don’t even mind that it’s sheer—I actually think it looks cute over a black bra. So the verdict on this blouse was KEPT!
Next I tried on the Colette Romey Cold Shoulder Knit Top ($34). I’ve been interested in cold shoulder tops and have tried a few on at H&M but none have worked out. I really liked this one, though! The top is super soft and I love the sage green color. This one also looks better styled with a half tuck rather than hanging loose.
Here’s a profile shot where you can see the shoulder slit and detail. Super cute! Obviously, the verdict on this top was also KEPT.
I tried the Pixley Abriella Waffle Knit Cardigan ($48) over the cold shoulder top and it looked really cute. The cardigan is SUPER soft and has drapey pockets, which I love. I also like the slightly purple-leaning slate color. This will be a really good layering piece as we move from winter into spring. Clearly, the verdict on the cardigan was also KEPT. I mean, POCKETS!
Next up was the 41 Hawthorn Cristen Shirt Dress ($78), which is basically the same shirtdress I kept from my December 2017 Fix and absolutely love. I actually saw another woman wearing that dress out at a bar recently and told her I had the same one from Stitch Fix. So we bonded over the dress for a moment…look at Stitch Fix, bringing people together! 😛 Anyway, I don’t always love receiving another version of something I already have, but in this case I was thrilled. The color and pattern are different enough for me to justify having another in my closet. I absolutely love this dress too! I’m really feeling teal these days so the color and florals are perfect. The verdict? KEPT, duh!
I’ve requested jumpsuits in past Fixes and have received a couple short rompers that didn’t work out. They can be difficult because I have a long torso, so if they’re not long enough I get camel toe, which is a big nope. This time around, Jennifer sent the Loveappella Valentina Crochet Trim Knit Jumpsuit ($78). And I’m in love with it! The floral print is right up my alley. I also like the wrap top style, the crochet detail along the shoulders (which you can’t see in my photo), and the ruffly sleeves. The jumpsuit is super comfortable and the torso is long enough to avoid even a soupçon of camel toe. It’s a little loose around my waist, but not to the point where it looks bad. I do wish it had pockets, but otherwise it’s fantastic! So yeah…the verdict was KEPT.
Peeps, I kept the whole shebang this time! Jennifer totally knocked it out of the park, so a big thank you to her. Because I kept all five pieces, I got a 25% off my order. Without the discount my total would have been $276, but instead I spent $199.42 (minus the $20 styling fee, plus tax). That’s an average of just under $40 per item. I’ve already worn the red and green blouses and I can’t wait for the weather to warm up enough to wear the dress and jumpsuit!

What is Stitch Fix?
Stitch Fix assigns a personal stylist to select five items for you, including clothing, accessories, and shoes—and ships them right to your door.
Sign up at Stitch Fix and complete a style profile by filling out your clothing and shoe sizes, what sort of styles you like, color preferences, and more. They offer plus sizes and maternity wear as well! You can even specify a price range you’re willing to spend per piece. The style profile is comprehensive, and you can include a link to your Pinterest style board (here’s mine) to help guide your stylist. They’ve added a rating feature to the website where you can give a thumbs up or a thumbs down to specific items so your stylist can better tailor Fixes to your taste. You can request specific items via your Pinterest board or by leaving a note for your stylist on the Stitch Fix website, though there’s no guarantee you’ll get them.
Then you schedule a Fix (you can get one as often as you’d like). Ladies: you can now add Extras (e.g., intimates like bras, underwear, camis, etc) to your order before your stylist starts working on it! Stitch Fix will send you a box containing five items selected for you, along with a stylist note and outfit ideas.
You have three days to try everything on and decide what to keep or return. If you keep any items (even just one), they’ll deduct a $20 styling fee from the total cost. The styling fee can be applied to your extras. Even better? If you keep all five items, you get a 25% discount on everything! You only pay the $20 styling fee if you send everything back. What happens if you don’t like some of the items? Stitch Fix makes it simple for you to return whatever you don’t want to keep. Each Fix includes a pre-addressed, USPS postage-paid envelope for easy returns. Schedule your first Fix today!
