Who is ready for another Stitch Fix Review? I got my 25th Stitch Fix box a week or two ago and I have all the fun for you today. Yay!
My box this month contained a mix of spring and winter fashion. It has been perfect for where I live. Often, this time of year, here it will be snowing one day and sunny and 70 two days later. So, a box with a mix of seasons is great to add something new no matter what the weather is for the day. Oh and since I don't like beating around the bush, I will tell you that this fix was about a million times more fun to try on than Stitch Fix #23 that I showed you last time.
I will show you what was in the box and tell you what I did with everything, but first, for those of you who are not familiar with Stitch Fix, let me tell you about Stitch Fix.
In my opinion, Stitch Fix (affiliate links throughout this post) is perfect for busy moms (like me) or people who don’t like to shop (like me) or have a fashion addiction and have always secretly wanted their own stylist….Stitch Fix is a great option. I also think it is great for helping you find pieces for your wardrobe that you wouldn’t normally even look at in the store. Variety can be a great thing and Stitch Fix helps with that for sure!
You will want to start by signing up for Stitch Fix. When you do so, you will fill out a style survey. It will give your stylist ideas of what you like and don’t like as well as your sizing information. Then you need to sign up for your first fix and wait patiently until the box comes. If you are like me, the date of your next fix will be kind of like your due date when you were pregnant….you won’t forget it. At. All.
When your fix is sent, you will be charged a $20 styling fee. Once the box arrives, try on everything in the box within 3 days. I love that I can try things on anytime I want and anytime that is convenient for me.
Select what you plan to keep and what you plan to return. Go online to your Stitch Fix account and check out. Leave your stylist very specific information about what you liked and didn’t like. It will help future fixes get even better. I’ve also found that starting a specific Stitch Fix Pinterest board (like mine here) and ONLY pinning things I would actually wear and that I think would look good on me (versus inspiration and amazing things you like, but would look horrible on) to that board has helped. I leave notes in the pins as to what I like or don’t like in the pin.
As you check out, you will pay for whatever you are keeping. At that time, your $20 styling fee will be deducted from the total cost of the items you are keeping. If you hit the jackpot and you love everything in your box, you will get a 25% discount on everything in the box! Yay!
First up in this box is the Market & Spruce Xander Short Sleeve Woven Back Sweatshirt.
I paired it with the Mercer Skyler Distressed Skinny Jean.
Ok, so for those of you who love my Stitch Fix posts and follow them, you know what fun I've had with finding jeans. The sizing hasn't been right or the cut wasn't quite right. I found out with my last fix that you can go into your style profile and change your sizing. I thought my stylist could/would change it based on my feedback. Nope. I had no idea I was supposed to keep up with that. Probably a Duh moment, but anyway…I have learned that I am not a size 30 in jeans but rather a 31. Guess what, I changed my size and these jeans fit perfectly! I'm so happy about that because I love them. I love white jeans and I love the distressed look and now I've got both in one pair of jeans. Perfection!
The top is really cute as well. I love the two fabrics and two colors. All in all, it is a great spring pairing.
This is the Market & Spruce Brentwood Jersey Stripe Tiered Top. I had pinned something very similar to my Pinterest board. I think this box is the first box that I have pinned something from the Stitch Fix board and actually gotten it in my box…and it happened twice this month. Woot, Woot!
I love this top. The sleeves are long enough, which is often an issue for me. It is one of those things that is so nice…when your sleeves are long enough. I also love the way it looks on me and that it is warm, since I'm usually cold.
My styling cards showed this top paired with a pink cardigan. I wish I had a bright pink cardigan, but since I don't, I pulled out a cute blue cardigan from a fix ions ago. Love it! Though, Stitch Fix…I need a bright pink cardigan. 🙂
The last two items in the box, I ended up pairing together. This is the 41Hawthorn Berneen Doman Knit Top.
This is the other item that was in my box that I had pinned to my Fashion Pinterest board. It is the Skies are Blue Kembla Knit Jacket.
I paired the top with a pair of jeans from another fix. I love these jeans! I like the top as well. It looks good on. I did feel just a little self-conscious in the top because of the banded bottom and how that is fitted. I felt like in real life, it kind of accentuated my wiggly belly.
I added the Knit Jacket with the shirt. My girls hated this jacket. I'm not really sure why, but I kind of liked it. I debated whether to keep this one or not based on what I felt like it could go with from my closet as well as the whole keep 5 – 25% discount concept.
So after photographing myself for a bit…this is how I get. It gets a little old to stand there and try to pose well and smile and make sure I tilt my chin down, etc., etc. So…silly faces are a part of the process. 🙂 Especially when my kids are too into playing with the Lego city they just built to actually come photobomb. What…no photobombing…well, I'm not too proud to tell you that I love it when they come photobomb. It makes it fun. AND I'm not too proud to tell you that I forced my kids to come photobomb….for you guys… Yep!
I love how even the dog knew she needed to participate! Lol!
Can you tell my oldest daughter, Snowflake, is totally not into photobombing today? I'm such a mean mom…making my children photobomb. 😉
Duh! If they don't want to do it, chances are it isn't going to work as well. Still…I had fun! Thanks for patronizing your mom girls and making that last bit of my photoshoot a bit more fun. 🙂 ♥
Here is what I did with this box:
- Market & Spruce Xander Short Sleeve Woven Back Sweatshirt – $54 – Kept
- Mercer Skyler Distressed Skinny Jean – $98 – Kept
- Market & Spruce Brentwood Jersey Stripe Tiered Top – $68 – Kept
- 41Hawthorn Berneen Dolman Knit Top – $58 – Returned
- Skies and Blue Kembla Knit Jacket – $68 – Returned
I really debated keeping all 5 items because I was debating the Knit Top and thinking I wanted to keep it. With keeping that top and the 25% discount it would have made sense to keep all 5 items. The thing that was my deciding factor is that I just didn't want to spend that much money this month. I've been training for a race and I need a new pair of running shoes more than I need all 5 items. Therefore, I decided to send back the two items I did rather than keep them all.
Don't forget to pop on over to Instagram and follow me there. I have more Stitch Fix pics and photo bombing going on over there and I know you don't want to miss it. 😀
What would your Stitch Fix Review be for this box? Leave me a comment. I’d love to hear.
