Last month, I shared my first Stitch Fix clothing box with you. While I was happy with most of the items in that box, I did return a few. Since it was my first box, Jessica (my personal stylist) and I are still acquainting ourselves. I ordered another box and eagerly awaited my March spring Stitch Fix delivery.
As a refresher, Stitch Fix sends you a surprise box of clothing and accessories tailored to your personal style. It’s based on a style profile quiz and a Pinterest board that you share with your stylist. You pay a $20 styling fee, but if you keep anything in the box, Stitch Fix credits the styling fee to your bill. You only pay for what you keep and they include a convenient pre-paid shipping envelope. If you keep all 5 items, you get a 25% discount.
Last month, I returned a purse I thought was leather. I asked for a neutral boho bag, a mini skirt, and a statement necklace. I also mention that I live in Florida. We are already experiencing temps in the 70’s and 80’s. I don’t like layering in the spring, and don’t currently need any long sleeves.
What was in my Spring Stitch Fix?
Statement necklace: Jessica fulfilled my statement necklace request and sent this Bay to Baubles Tristin Hammered Ovals Collar Necklace.
I love the way it lays right on top of my collar bones. When I opened the box, I was unsure about the coppery tone, but it actually looks pretty good on my skin.
It’s lightweight and clasps easily. Many tops in my wardrobe will go well with it. Additionally, it’s versatile enough that I could even where it around the fall and winter holidays.
Button Down Blouse: This blank tank is cute, and I love the shiny piping around the neckline. However, notice the fourth button down in the photo. The button-hole is completely stitch closed. Without removing all the thread and re-sewing it, the button-hole is useless. Besides, I have several similar black tanks.
DECISION: Keep the necklace AND I want more statement jewelry. Sending back the tank since it’s damaged.
I loved this Papermoon Sheydon Trim Detail Blouse as soon as I pulled it from the box. It’s the perfect shade of navy blue and the pattern in the horizontal stripes adds just a pop of color that match my favorite jeans!
I dashed to my closet, jumping cat hurdles along the way, dug out these jeans and my sandals. It’s a perfect combination for spring!
BONUS: The necklace looks amazing with it.
You can’t see the pattern in the photo – so here’s a blow up:
Decision: Keep it!
I strongly debated keeping the Brixon Ivy Pinson Drape Cardigan, however, I really don’t wear long sleeves in the spring or summer.
I had asked for no long sleeves in both my earlier feedback, blog post, and personal style profile, but this is the one thing that Jessica got wrong. It is cute, but it’s just not me.
I don’t mind wearing grays or pastels, but not next to my face. I feel like they wash me out like a bad photo. Also, it’s just too warm for sleeves.
Decision: Send it back
Last month, Jessica delighted me with a pair of perfectly fitting Just Black Jeans. That’s genuine accomplishment with my under-five-foot frame. I am totally perplexed that this pair didn’t fit at all. I love the wash, and that they sit below my belly bean, but these jeans fit about 3 inches too wide in the waist and sag in the derriere. At 44 years old, I don’t need my hiney to look saggy. It’s totally not a confidence booster. The legs are also a bit long and drag the ground.
Perhaps inconsistent sizing within the brand is to blame, but I couldn’t justify keeping them. This one wasn’t Jessica’s boo boo. The jeans were otherwise great.
Decision: Send them back
Spring Stitch Fix Overall Impression
Jessica’s personal note mentioned she read my blog post blush. That tickled me. Being heard feels good.
The Spring Stitch Fix Disappointments
She said that Stitch Fix didn’t have any neutral boho bags like I had pinned and asked for. While I do love the tops she sent, they aren’t similar to my Pinterest board with much edgier choices. They also didn’t have any short skirts. I would have been happier with shorts.
One top arrived damaged, the jeans didn’t fit (though the style was great), and I received a cardigan after asking for no long sleeves.
The Spring Stitch Fix Delights
The jeans, even if ill-fitting, had great style. I just can’t say enough about the necklace and the Papermoon Detail blouse. It completed an outfit for me perfectly.
I will wait until summer before ordering another box with high hopes that they re-stock boho bags, shorts, edgier tanks, and short skirts. Hopefully, I won’t get long sleeves in the summer.
Out of all these items, what would you have kept?
We enjoy hosting parties and my husband and I are both avid gamers. You can find me on PS4 as SunshineFlaGirl. We also play tabletop RPGs and eurogames.
