My 19th Stitch Fix Review – March 2015

What could possibly be better than new clothes? Answer: having a personal stylist that selects items she thinks will be perfect for you and SHIPS those items directly to your door. Sound too good to be true? It’s not! Stitch Fix is the online styling service for women and they do just that! My 19th shipment from this amazing company arrived this week and the items that my personal stylist, Layla, selected for me were as beautiful as ever. Enough talk, let’s dive right into the clothes.

The moment I opened my Stitch Fix Stitch Fix shipment to reveal this stack of gorgeous fabrics, I knew instantly that Layla had outdone herself once again. I have some serious spring fever happening over here in Michigan right now and I just about drooled over the colors and textures that she thought would be perfect for me. Layla had definitely done her homework and scouted out My Style board on Pinterest. I couldn’t try these clothes on fast enough!

Stitch Fix Review - March 2015 #stitchfix

I have a serious color crush on peach and blush so I gravitated first toward the Gilli Airy Knit Sweater from Mak ($48).

I loved the lightweight casual knit and I tried the sweater on with a light colored casual pair of flare leg jeans and a pair of gold sandals. The combination was so gorgeous and the color palate was like a breath of fresh air.

I absolutely loved the color and texture of this sweater but it was just a touch too short and too boxy for me. I know people are going to leave a ton of comments telling me I should of kept the sweater. I agree that it is gorgeous and very much my style, but if a top is boxy on me, I will always talk myself out of wearing it and this sweater is way too pretty to get buried in the back of my closet.

The next item I tried on was the Pinson Drape Cardigan from Brixon Ivy ($54). Oh, my word. This is a fabulous cardigan. I’m pretty sure it came straight from fashion heaven.

Any time I dress, I try to balance out the top and bottom of my outfit. One part should be fitted and the other should not be. Since this cardigan had a lot of beautiful drape, I wore it with a sequenced off-white tank and a pair of skinny jeans.

There are no words for how much I love this cardigan. It’s so feminine and the heather gray color puts an interesting casual spin on it.

My gold sandals and white ceramic Fossil watch also looked fabulous with the ensemble.

This cardigan was definitely a keeper!

Next up was the Lyla Skirt from Gili ($48). At first, I wasn’t sure what to make of this skirt. The heather gray cotton fabric put a distinctly casual spin on this item. Yet it was pleated and lined; which meant that it was good quality. I was determined to give this skirt a chance.

I’m not going to lie. At first, I had no idea what to wear with the skirt. On a whim, I kept on the Pinson Drape Cardigan and just added some nude pointed toe heels. Strangely, I didn’t think it was awful. It did violate my rule of mixing fitted items and draped items on top and bottom, but it wasn’t bad. Well, the shoe color was bad. But the clothes weren’t.

I dug a little deeper in my closet and decided to play it conservative with a black beaded cardigan over a white tank. I also added black patent leather heels.

The ensemble was conservative, but the heather texture of the skirt added a pop of fun to the outfit . I am a faculty advisor for NJHS at my school and inductions are coming up. Last year I had the worst time selecting an outfit to wear for the event. I wanted to wear a dress and look professional. Unfortunately, all of my dresses are either formal or casual. There is no in between. Until now. I think I have the perfect skirted outfit to wear at inductions this year.

The fourth item included in my fix was a Bixby Dot Print 3/4 Tab Sleeve Blouse from Pixley ($48). I Instantly fell in love with the colors and the playful print.

The blouse was simply gorgeous when I tried it on.

Much like the Gilli Airy Knit Sweater that I tried on a decided to return, this top was also a bit boxy. It didn’t look bad on me, but it did resemble a maternity top. I wasn’t trying to look pregnant in this photo, but I kind of do.

I’m so torn because I didn’t look pregnant from every angle while I wore the top and it was really beautiful (and comfortable!). I have to make up my mind soon, but I am so undecided about whether to keep or return the blouse.

What do you think I should do?

The fifth and final item included in my fix was the Vivienne Floral Print Sleeveless Blouse from Daniel Rainn ($68). I had told Layla that I was loving all things feminine (especially floral prints), but I wasn’t sold on this blouse right away. It was a little to… vibrant.  I’m drawn to soft colors right now and I was certain that this item was going right back to Stitch Fix.Stitch Fix

And then I tried it on.

And guess what?

I kind of loved it. The fabric was light and airy and the arm holes weren’t too big (a common problem for me).

I also liked that the blouse was longer in the back which provided a little extra coverage.

I always love to add layers so I wore a white cardigan over the blouse and it was still gorgeous.

And just like that, an unwanted blouse became a keeper.

  1. I would keep it all. That peach top looks great on you. I don’t think it looks too short or boxy, but you are the one wearing it. Maybe keep all and sell it on the fb group? I’d be interested (depending on size and washing instructions)! :0

  2. I definitely think you should reconsider purchasing the Bixby top – it looks so adorable on you! I must find a drape cardigan like your 2nd item – it is simply perfect! Jen 🙂

  3. great fix! I love the cardigan and the floral shirt!!! I got the Pixley blouse too and had the same problem, too boxy. I am very small on top and boxy does not work for me. Pretty top, though!

  4. Thanks for sharing your StitchFix experiences! I like the peach sweater on you better than the polka dot top. I’d keep the sweater over the polka dots if you keep either of them.

  5. I LOVE the Pinson drape cardigan. I am going to ask for it in my Fix next month. You described it perfectly– feminine yet casual. A few months back, I think I got a similar Daniel Rainn print top– same print on blue, but it was long sleeved and oversized and on me it looked like an art smock. Whoops. But I love the sleeve-less blouse on you! The Gilli Airy sweater is really pretty but I too worry that if something feels a little short already, I know that in Kindergarten it will go up even higher when I’m teaching or sitting on the floor. I like the Bixby Dot shirt, but I don’t LOVE it. You don’t look pregnant though!!! 🙂 Let us know what you decide

  6. Do you feel like the skirt could be casual enough for flip flops? It is so cute and I would love some casual pieces for chasing my kids around, but not sure if this would be too much. Looks like it could go both ways. Anyway I love all your stitch fix posts! Probably what I come to see most on your blog.

  7. Your stylist is great and you do a fabulous job of making the clothes look good. Keep the blouse…and I want that sweater!

  8. Although the peach color looks fabulous on you, if you don’t love it- don’t keep it! Same with the Bixby dot print. I’m the same way, I have too many clothes I have purchased that I didn’t LOVE and they are inevitably donated!

  9. i would keep the first shirt over the blue top. Just my opinion, but I think it looks better on you than the blue. Like you said, you don’t want to wear a top that makes you look pregnant when you aren’t. the pink top looked good at all angles. Great fix! It all looks great, I’m excited to get my first fix next week.

  10. I actually agree with you on the sweater! The color is really cute, but I like my clothes long and flowy. The flowery shirt looks gorgeous on you… I’m definitely pinning that one!

  11. I love the polka dot top on you. It does not make you look prego at all. 🙂 The print is too cute. Keep, keep, keep! 🙂

  12. I think you always look adorable. I think the peach sweater would look great with skinny jeans and /or white cropped skinny pants. Polka dot top great too and with o long necklace it would eliminate the fullness you feel makes it a pregnancy top. They’d both be fun in warmer weather. In California we’d be wearing all those items year round.

  13. i think you should keep the 3 you know you like and return the other 2 – if you’re undecided, then you don’t love/need/want the blouse enough to keep. there’s always next month! and the one after that! i especially like the super bright tank, and i don’t even like bright colors so that’s saying something (:

  14. Hey Maria! I love your Stitch Fix posts and this one was no exception! Question for you, I just got my most recent box and I feel like I always talk myself into keeping everything because of the discount even if there are one or two items I am not completely in love with. How do you justify returning certain items if it means spending only a small amount more to keep everything? Thanks in advance! I am sure my husband would appreciate any advice you can give me 🙂

    1. Hi Morgan! I have definitely kept a few items for the discount that I have ben on the fence about. If I don’t absolutely love something and feel confident in it, I never wear it. I only had to add a few items to my closet that fell into the “I don’t love it” category for me to become much more careful about which items I choose to keep. Now I only keep items if it TRULY is cheaper to have the benefits of the buy all discount on the items I really love.

  15. Hi Maria!

    Now that it’s been in your closet for a few weeks, how are you feeling about the grey skirt? I just got the same one in my fix, and I can’t decide if I want to keep it! There just seems to be a mismatch between the conservative cut and the casual jersey fabric. Have you gotten much use out of yours?

    1. Hi Ellen,
      Unfortunately, I don’t wear skirts often during the cooler months and right now the high is only 50 degrees in Michigan. Even if I LOVED the skirt, it still wouldn’t get much use, but I am happy that I decided to keep it. I think the fabric and cut will make it easier to dress the skirt up or down.

  16. Love all the items in your recent fixes – who is your stylist at Stitch Fix? I’m on my 7th or 8th fix and they are hit or miss so figuring out who to guide my stylist better. Thanks!

  17. I have to know, how did you fill out your style profile? I absolutely love every single thing in your box!

    1. Hi Claire! I know the skinny jeans are Guess brand but I’m not sure if the exact style. I found them at Marshalls a few years ago.
