As some may know, I am now doing Stitch Fix once a quarter. This seems to be working well for me. I added so many new pieces to my wardrobe that first year, I had to slow it down some. Now I get new clothes for every season, which is just about perfect.
My March box is my 'spring' fashion box, and I was looking forward to it. The only thing I think I requested from my stylist for this fix was a 'soft' blazer. Instead of those structured, stiff-fabric blazers, I was looking for one that was of a softer material and stretchier. Interestingly enough, I noticed on Stitch Fix's Instagram (or maybe it was an email I received) that blazers were 'in' this spring.
I also asked for more colors and prints. But the rest I left up to my stylist. I seem to get better fixes when I am not too demanding!
The floral print especially stood out to me. I don't buy much floral print. Not sure why. Maybe I'm missing out on some fun, fresh prints with my aversion to florals.
As is my experience very time, I NEVER look at the pricing for each item before I try it on, and I NEVER dismiss a clothing item just by looking at it. I try everything on. Even if I think I'll hate it. I have ended up with some surprise favorites by treating my fixes this way.
Let's dig in and see what I got, shall we?
1) First I picked out the Felecia Colorblock Ponte Dress by 41Hawthorn for $78. I don't have any orange in my wardrobe. Zip. So this caught my eye. Why have I avoided orange?
I will admit, I was not in love with this right off the bat, but was willing to give a whirl!
Sorry, but NO.
2) The next item I tried on was the Celso Mesh Detail Knit Top by Loveappella for $54. This was the floral item you saw in my pile. I hung it up on the hanger and had a feeling this was going to be a winner:
|Glorious Red Pants of Awesome|
3) Feeling good about this fix so far. Not bad. Keep one, reject one. The next item in my box was the Tameron Button Down Blouse by 41Hawthorn for $58. I liked this because of the fun print and the color. It said 'spring' to me.
Hard to really see the color, but it was a royal blue. I had rejected a white blouse last year that I really regretted (I got it in January of 2015 and thought it was too cold to purchase such a summery blouse). This time, since I only get quarterly boxes, I didn't want to dismiss a cute blouse just because I couldn't wear it much immediately.
Okay, you all are probably thinking: That's super cute! Oh definitely a keeper.
Yeah, you would think that by looking at the photo. It fit well, it was a cute style, etc. However, what is hard to really see in a photo is the dizzying affect this had on the eyeballs when it was in motion. A little nauseating, sadly. I WANTED to like it. I did. But the pattern was just too much for me. Sadface.
So this was a big old NO just based on the print. Not on the fit or fashion.
4) Hm, what kind of fix was this going to be? 2 rejects, 1 keep - only a couple of things left to go! Uh-oh....
The next item I tried on was the Elissa French Terry Striped Moto Jacket by Market & Spruce for $74. This was actually an item I had on my Pinterest board, so I was super excited to see my stylist send it to me. This is a first for me. (but I really haven't done a great job of keeping my Pinterest board up-to-date, so I'm not blaming StitchFix for that)
5) The last item in my box was a skirt - the Morgen Skirt by Gilli for $54.
In the end, my March box was a very satisfying fix. 3 out of 5 is fantastic. I added several new pieces to my wardrobe and was able to freshen up my fashion choices for spring. YAY!
The funny thing is, if you look at my Stitch Fix Pinterest board, my stylist did an excellent job of trying to find me things that matched items I'd flagged in the last few months. I had no idea until I looked at my board with fresh eyes.
If you have yet to try Stitch Fix, consider using my referral link below. I will get a $25 credit when you make your first order, just to give full transparency. Even though I've been doing these reviews for almost 2 years, I haven't gotten much in the way of credit (not a complaint, just honesty...I write these reviews for the fun of it...not for the $$).
Thanks for stopping by! I'd love to hear your comments on what I kept and what I sent back.
