Oh how I love getting shipping confirmation emails from Stitch Fix! That sweet message saying my next fix is on its way (and knowing that I can cheat and see what it is I’m getting). It’s like the countdown to Christmas. I check my tracking obsessively and then rush to the mailbox as soon as delivery has been confirmed.
This month, I was especially interested in the items would get, especially after writing a post all about how to make Stitch Fix work for you. I would feel pretty silly if I received a dud of a fix.
My April fix did not disappoint. In fact, it’s the best fix I’ve ever gotten, further proof that my tips work! As I ripped into the box and tore through the tissue paper (after documenting with photos of course), I was thrilled at the bright patterns in my box.
First thing I always do is check my note from my stylist. She was unable to get me any of the 6 items I requested by name but she did say she used those items and my Pinterest board as inspiration for the items she did send.
Next I take a look at each item along with the style cards to get different ideas of how to wear the item and what to try it on with.
I gather the coordinating items from my closet that I think might look good with the items from my box, including the proper undergarments (seriously you can’t try on clothes sans bra people). I also usually force my husband to witness my personal fashion show to get someone else’s opinion. I can tend to gravitate towards ‘mom styles’ (as my husband calls them) so it’s nice to get another point of view, plus I do want him to like what I wear and how I look.
So, here is what I received in my April Stitch Fix.
Kut From The Kloth Galden Button Down Blouse
At first I wasn’t sure how I felt about this shirt. The pattern was fun but I wasn’t sure if I was really into the flowers. My husband wasn’t 100% either. Floral patterns are really on trend for spring and summer, so I figured it might be a good addition to my current closet.
It looked cute with a pencil skirt and jeans. After scouring my closet, I found 3 cardigans that I already own that match colors in the pattern and looked good paired with this shirt (which means lots of versatility). I also tried the shirt tucked into a pair of white wide leg slacks and that pretty much sealed the deal for me.
41Hawthorn Moni Studded Shortsleeve Blouse
I’ve wanted one of the Moni Studded Shortsleeve Blouses since I joined Stitch Fix. I received a medium in one of my first fixes and it was too big. This one was a small and fit much better. It’s fitted enough to show my shape but not so fitted that it shows the stuff I don’t want anyone to see. My husband even liked it (and he generally doesn’t like shirts that ‘cover’ this much).
I paired it with skinny jeans, a black cardigan and flats, as well as bootcut jeans and wedges. Both were super cute! Love the versatility of this top.
Brixon Ivy Lex Textured Floral Knit Fit & Flare Dress
This dress has such a great print and a fun bright color for spring and summer. The fit was right on, showing off my curves and hiding my hips. My husband also liked the scoop neck, which showed a small but tasteful amount of cleavage. I can’t wait to wear it to weddings and parties this summer.
I paired it with a grey cardigan as well as a coral cardigan and it was cute. Thinking it would be fun to try with cobalt blue cardigan or jacket as well
41Hawthorn Colibri Solid Tab Sleeve Blouse
I’m not a huge fan of purple. I actually don’t own any purple tops. I do like how it’s bright and will be great for spring and summer. This shirt fits really similarly to a few other shirts that I own and love. My husband didn’t love it, mainly because he said it didn’t show enough skin (such a guy) but finally came around at the end.
This looked great with skinny jeans and black skinny slacks for work. It was a little long to tuck in to a skirt (too much bunching). I also think it would look cute with white skinnies, which I don’t currently own but I’m thinking of investing in for summer.
Tart Maxine Knit Chevron Jacket
I love the print of this jacket. I wish it was a bit more fitted. I’m also not a huge fan of navy, mainly because I own so much black. I do need another cute jacket for going out (which is what my husband said), so I talked myself into it.
I like it with rolled up skinny jeans, a t-shirt and flats for a casual look. I also liked it with skinnies or bootcut jeans, a cute tank and wedges.
This is the first time I’ve liked every item in my fix. I ended up keeping everything, which saved me over $70 (if you keep all 5 items you get a 25% discount). I probably would have only kept 3 items (in an effort to not go spending crazy) but once I factored in the discount, it was only $10 more to keep the two additional pieces. So of course I kept it all!
