April Stitch Fix Reveal
Sweet baby Jesus, last week was Spring Break week. The sun was shining, the birds were singing, the kids were fighting. But I got an early surprise for lil’ old me in the mail – my latest Stitch Fix box. I’m so excited to share this Stitch Fix Reveal because this fix was filled with beautiful spring pieces and did not disappoint! If you’ve read one of my Stitch Fix Reveal posts before, feel free to jump down and dig in. If you’re new to Stitch Fix (be afraid, be very very afraid), let me tell you all about it.
What is Stitch Fix?
Stitch Fix is an online personal clothing styling service. Start here by filling out your style profile (it just takes a few minutes!) and order your first Stitch Fix. Five items (clothing, accessories, jewelry and/or shoes) are chosen for you by a personal stylist and shipped directly to you on the date that you choose. There is a $20 styling fee that is applied to any items you purchase. Take a few days to try on everything at home and send back anything you decide not to keep in a prepaid package. If you choose to keep all five items, you get a 25% discount.
Stitch Fix has been wonderful for me because I don’t get to shop much and I love the ability to try on things in the comfort of my own home. They have excellent customer service and I like that there is no commitment. You schedule fixes as little or as frequently as you want them – no contract.
April Stitch Fix
For this Fix, I asked for a new handbag or tote, a dress and some light spring/summer pieces for an upcoming vacation with my husband to Hawaii. Here’s some of the things I had pinned to my fashion board:
My stylist certainly delivered! I was so excited to open this box and try things on, I loved the pretty colors! If you see something you like, be sure to Pin it for your stylist – I’ve found that pinning your favorite items is the best way to help your stylist know what you’re looking for. Please meet my assistant, Beckett:
I can’t even with his little face. My husband assures me that he is a long hair kind of kid so we are working on growing it out. Poor guy has my hair, big and wild. I set up my camera on a tripod with a remote and he was in charge of pushing the button. He was so cute about the whole thing, “Ok, go mommy. I ready!”
Market & Spruce Amberley Cut Out Detail Knit Top ($48)
I love this top! Anything with stripes gets me right away, but the detail at the back makes is a little more interesting. I know this is a staple that will get a lot of wear on its own, or layered. I paired this shirt with my Just Black Bryden High Rise Distressed Straight Leg Jeans from a previous fix that I am OBSESSED with.
Daniel Rainn Dacey Crochet Panel Knit Top ($68)
I loved the soft pink of this shirt and the fabric was so soft and had a nice drape to it. I tend to gravitate toward jewel tones but I liked this softer look. I didn’t feel like this shirt fit me well though. Being short, I walk the fine line of having things fitted enough but also not too tight to draw attention to my midsection, which has always been my trouble area. This just felt too big.
Dear John Finnegan Printed Cuffed Short ($58)
At first look at these shorts, I thought – yikes! The fabric reminded me of drapery. However, I kept an open mind and my stylist had noted that I had pinned this pair of floral trousers. I like the idea of a bolder pattern on shorts or pants, I could see these shorts being really cute with a simple white t-shirt and a hat, or with a chambray shirt. In the end, I decided they probably wouldn’t get much wear from me, but they fit perfectly and were really comfortable. I’m glad my stylist included a more risky piece (at least for me!)
Street Level Anchorage Diamond Printed Tote ($68)
This tote is just what I was looking for. I love the pattern and it has a ton of pockets to keep everything organized. I worried that it could be a little too big, but I took it with me on a weekend away and it was so nice to have something that could carry an extra layer, a water bottle, or any other larger items. I think it will make a perfect beach bag for an upcoming vacation. Good job Lucy!
Brixton Ivy Linda Dress ($68)
I liked the look and length of this dress, I’m partial to anything with a boho vibe. I didn’t think it was the most flattering to my shape however. I am very short-waisted to I have to be careful with waistlines and this seemed to accentuate my lack of waist, lol! I like the look my stylist was going for and I hope I can find something a little more flattering in my next fix.
