My Spring Fix
The thing I love about Stitch Fix is that while you can always request specific things from your stylist, you can also let her surprise you. Most of the time I go the “surprise” route because I feel like I have a pretty good handle on what I like, what’s in style, and what will work for my shape and my lifestyle. However, I’m not the best at stepping out of my comfort zone. That’s where my stylist comes in. For this Fix I requested some dress options I could wear for Easter brunch and also to school. Let the unboxing commence…..
1. Market & Spruce “Evander” Dress ($68)
This is kind of what I was thinking when I requested a dress for Easter and school.
It’s comfortable, drapey and stretchy, the length is perfect, it has a fun print, and I can wear it with a denim jacket, moto, or cardigan when it’s chilly.
2. Daniel Rainn “Harlow” Shirt Dress ($78)
Truthfully, when I first saw this dress, I wasn’t even going to try it on. It was a little too “girly” for me (I prefer more trendy, classic, or casual stuff typically). Me? In a silky dress? But I gave it a shot because I really liked the pretty soft green color. When I tried it on, that good ‘ole Stitch Fix magic happened….
Sometimes you have to try something on to “get” it. This dress! You guys, it’s lightweight, but not flimsy. It’s floral, but not too girly: it’s got a trendy oriental vibe with the split collar and floral print. It checks my comfortable and can-be-casual boxes, so it’ll be great for teaching.
I love how it looks with casual sandals and a denim jacket, but I really can’t wait to style it with a black moto and heels for a date night look. Guys, I think I could wear this dress just about anywhere!
3. Gilli “Willet” Knit Skirt ($48)
This skirt has the cutest bird print! It’s also stretchy and drapey, so it felt like wearing your most comfy baggy gym shorts, but looks way better, obvi. To me it sort of had a cool French girl vibe going.
I love it with a plain white tee, and I think it would look cute with a long sleeve bodysuit if I had one. This is another item I could wear with a variety of layers (cardigan, jackets, etc.).
4. Kaileigh “Surah” Wrap Top ($42)
This top was so flattering, and marigold yellow is a color you’re going to be seeing a lot of this spring.
I tried it on with black jeans, and it would look really cute with distressed straight crops or shorts this summer (and of course with white jeans).
I love how the red of this little Kate Spade bag makes the red in the floral print pop. It was a little low-cut for me, but I can usually remedy that with a safety pin.
5. Renee C “Leena” Printed Skirt ($48)
This was another item that I didn’t think I’d like at first. Stretchy pencil skirts aren’t always the most flattering on me (hello hips). This skirt was a pleasant surprise: it wasn’t clingy or unflattering at all.
See what I mean? I tried it with a black peplum tank, and it looked cute down and also knotted. I think it would look amazing dressed down with a graphic tee and sneakers (totally my thing)!
It’s another piece that will layer well with things I already have him my closet (denim jackets, cardigans, bombers, blazers, and of course, moto jackets).
I ended up keeping #2 (the green floral dress) and #5 (the white + black skirt). I floundered between keeping all of it (because then I’d get the 25% discount on the total!) and just keeping these two items. In the end, I kept just the two, although my heart is still pining away for the bird-print skirt (#3) and the yellow wrap top (#4).
Have you tried Stitch Fix?
If you’ve never tried Stitch Fix before, now’s the perfect time. Stitch Fix has offered my followers a special deal: if you sign up before April 13, 2019, and schedule your first Fix, Stitch Fix will give you $25 to spend on it!
Here’s how Stitch Fix works. You sign up and complete a style survey to let your stylist know your unique preferences (fits, colors, styles, etc.), and add a note if you want something special or to add more info. Your stylist sends you 5 hand-picked pieces. There’s a $20 styling fee, and it is applied to the cost of anything you buy from your Fix. You try things on, keep what you like, and send back what you don’t (there’s a 25% discount if you decide to keep all 5 items). Returning what you don’t want is easy: just drop the items in the enclosed free return shipping bag. You can do a one-time Fix, have them come on-demand, or set up a regular schedule. I’ve been receiving Stitch Fixes for 4 years now on a semi-regular basis, and I still get a little charge of excitement whenever that little box appears on my front porch. So fun!
Stitch Fix for Friends
Did you know there are Stitch Fix services for men and kids? We’ve gotten a few Stitch Fix Kids boxes for my 10-year-old son, and it’s been a lot of fun for both him and me. Check out some of the Fixes he’s received (see our Stitch Fix Kids Box 1 and Box 2 reviews). Up next for our family is Stitch Fix Men: I have made it my mission to get my husband or one of my adult sons to try it. They haven’t caved to the pressure yet, but one day, this is going to happen.
