My Stitch Fix came a day early and it was just what I needed to pull me out of my post-Disney-World-vacation-funk. Even Emmy was excited about it, even though I kept reassuring her that it was just clothes for mama.
And guys, it is so springy. If being in 75 degree weather the last couple weeks didn’t make me long for spring, this latest Stitch Fix definitely pushed me over the edge. (This post contains affiliate links)
Jennifer, my personal stylist, is the best. Just look at all of this spring goodness:
If you’re unfamiliar with Stitch Fix, you can read more about this amazing service after you check out all of the beautiful clothes I received this month.
So this month, I requested more edgy-boho items, something romantic for a date night, and colored denim.
Atta Dress by Papermoon. ($58)
This dress is what Jennifer sent for a date night look. Initially, I thought the last thing I need right now is an LBD. But the length of this dress is perfect for me, not too short so I feel very comfortable in it, especially with tights.
The laser cut detail at the hem adds a nice touch and the subtle lace detail adds some romance. I tried it on with my gray Steve Madden pumps with it, because Jennifer suggested some heels, similar pumps here.
But it’s more likely that I would wear it with my slouchy black suede boots.
I like that it has sleeves but when I tried to add a layer, I didn’t love it. I tried so many cardigans on with it, and they did nothing for the look. I’d have to wear something over it most of the time since I am always cold. And when I put tights on with it, it kind of lost the charm of the laser cut outs.
This dress is a Stitch Fix Exclusive, and it’s made in the USA, which Jennifer knows that I always appreciate.
Although I do like the price of this dress, I’m sending it back. RJ told me “it’s fine” and I agree. It’s not special enough.
Bastille Tulip Sleeve Blouse by Papermoon. ($44)
I didn’t think that I would love this top when I pulled it out of the box, but I do. I like the coral color, it makes me look kind of tan, right?
I love the tulip sleeve detail. It adds a nice, feminine touch.
And it has a keyhole back. I’m beginning to wonder if keyholes are a Stitch Fix thing, or maybe just a Papermoon thing, because I notice that a lot of the tops I receive have keyhole backs. Maybe it’s because I pin so many tops with interesting backs to my style board?
The bold color looks perfect with my booties and my white, destructed Gap denim, similar here.
And makes me dream of warmer weather. Especially since we got all of this snow last night. Jennifer suggested that I pair this top with my next item: bright and cheery yellow jeans.
Giovanni Straight Leg Jean by Level 99. ($108)
I was a little sad when I opened my Fix and saw these. I knew that I would love the fit and that they would be super comfortable, because I received a burgundy pair that I have worn all fall and winter and am in love with. Jennifer knows that I love them. I was actually wearing them when my Fix came. But the high price point made me sad. The color also made me a little nervous. Yellow pants?
They are just as comfortable as I feared they would be and not at all see through for such a light color pant.
They look great with a little cuff and my Steve Madden booties, similar booties here.
And, they are made in the USA, which makes me love them even more.
Jennifer suggested that I “pair the yellow jeans with the Papermoon blouse for a bold-winter banishing statement.” And she is right, it is pretty bold. But is it too bold?
I threw on my trusty denim jacket from the Gap (you can find a similar one here). I’ve had this for, no joke, 12 years. I think the jean jacket tones down the bold colors a little and I always need another layer unless it’s the middle of summer.
I feel like I will actually wear these a ton, because of how comfortable they are.
I prefer the way they look with a neutral top, don’t you? RJ definitely does. He said he prefers my style over the way Jennifer suggested I wear it. And I have a plethora of white, gray, and black tops in my wardrobe to make them look a little less bold and more of my taste.
Avril Floral Printed Skinny Jean by Dear John. ($88)
Floral denim? I was so skeptical of these initially. Jennifer sent them because I asked for items to transition into spring. On the style card the jeans were shown with a denim jacket.
Maybe if it were a floral skirt instead I would love it. I just don’t know if I can pull off a floral denim. These do not feel as nice as the Level 99 pants. They were a little snug pulling on and are not nearly as soft.
The cuff is sewn in, but I don’t mind the length for spring. It’s a good length to go with my nude flats, similar here.
Jennifer suggested that I pair these romantic jeans with the edgy Monoreno jacket I kept from my last fix. And I do like the way they look together.
Here’s my dilemma. Even though I requested colored, spring denim, I really need some denim, denim. My favorite pair of skinny jeans ripped right down the length of the back pocket last week. My favorite jeans that I’ve have for a few years and I wear all the time and have had repaired. So what I really need is a pair of faded, destructed denim that fit me awesome and are so worn in they don’t even feel like I’m wearing jeans, jeans.
Frey Roll Tab Blouse by Alice Blue. ($48)
I love navy blue and the price point of this top. Jennifer sent me a similar top in this Fix in dark green that I kept, and I am tempted to keep only this top, probably because I am boring.
I love the length, how it is longer in the back and that it buttons all the way down. It looks good with the floral printed skinny jeans, but it also looks great with my white denim.
I tried it with the yellow Level 99 jeans, too, and I love it even more with them.
The sleeves are roll tab, and when unrolled they are kind of awkward. They hit at a weird spot on my long arms and are just really wide.
What do you think? Is this top too basic and not special enough? Of should I keep it because it is basic and I know I will wear it often?
Now, are you wondering, how does Stitch Fix work? Well, it is a personal styling service for women, and it is amazing. First, you complete a really fun style profile online and then schedule your fix. You pay a $20 styling fee for each Fix and a personal stylist picks 5 items–just for you! You leave your stylist a note for each Fix to let her know if there’s something you desperately need to add to your wardrobe or a special event you’re attending or a look you’re shooting for (it’s been edgy-boho for my last few and I love it!)
Once your box arrives, you have 3 days to try your items on, send your friends selfies, keep trying different tops on with the pants…whatever you need to do to make your decision on what to keep. Then you check out online, leave specific feedback for your stylist, and send whatever you don’t love back in the pre-paid envelope that is included in each Fix. Your $20 styling fee gets applied to whatever you decide to keep and if you do keep it all, you get 25% off!
If you’re ready to try Stitch Fix, just head on over there and fill out your style profile and let the fun begin! If you use my referral link, I will receive credit which helps my Stitch Fix addiction…I mean it helps me to be able to do these fun Stitch Fix reveal posts each month!
So, tell me what you think! If I only keep one item, what do you think it should be? Do you hate the floral jeans, or love them? Should I keep the yellow pants because I know I will wear them a ton, even though they’re pricey?
