My April Fix | Celebrating 2 Years With Stitch Fix & A Giveaway!!

There isn't much easier or more fun than to have things (awesome things, BTW) delivered right to your doorstep. When I signed up with Stitch Fix in April of 2013, I never dreamed I would still be as into it as I am today. Two years later, guys. TWO YEARS, I have been getting monthly (sometimes every 2-3 weeks) fixes. And obviously, I love getting new clothing to makeover the sad wardrobe that's been clogging up my closet for the past few years...

But also? I'm oddly, but lovingly attached to Stitch Fix as a company. I've grown so fond of the way they care, and the way that they are so purposeful about trying to get to know my style and personality! I've mentioned this before, but when I have a good experience with a company, I will shout it from the rooftops, because truthfully, that doesn't happen nearly enough. People tend to be more vocal about the negative experiences they have with businesses, right? So I've sort of made it my goal to go out of my way to support business I love.


So not only do I have my April Stitch Fix to show you today, but I also have a GIVEAWAY!! I mean, 2 years of fixes kinda deserves a celebration I feel like. Don't you?? But you'll have to wait until the end of the post to get to the good stuff. First, you have to help me decide what I should keep from this months fix! :-)



Item #1 - Ben Striped Airy Knit Top
Grey & stripes? Well... that's my love language right there. I think this would be a fantastic addition to my closet, and a perfect top for both Spring & Summer.

Item #2 - Lucia Embroidered V-Neck Jersey Top
Item #3 -  Nik Skinny Jean
Let's start with the top! I actually pinned this top on my pinterest board a while ago, and my my stylist noticed it and put it in my fix! After putting it on, though, I'm not 100% sure about it. It's definitely comfortable, but I'm not totally sold. I've been going back and forth about it, what do you think?
Next, the jeans. I have to apologize for not getting a full photo of them. I wasn't thinking! They fit pretty well, but I'm a little nervous about the light wash. I don't know why.. I think it's because it's out of my comfort zone to wear such a light wash. BUT, that said, that's one of the reasons why I love this service, it urges me to consider things I might normally just pass right over!

Item #4 - Sicily Pintuck Detail Blouse
Oh Nicole (my stylist!), I could totally give you the biggest hug right now!! I specifically requested this top after seeing it in someone else fix. And I am always so pleasantly surprised when they send me my requests! And yes, this fits and looks exactly as I'd hoped it would!! I love it so much. I've been really into florals lately.

Item #5 - Elisha Zipper Accent Structured Satchel
And because I'm demanding and annoying, I also requested this bag!! And hallelujah, my stylist sent it to me as well as the top!!! I am literally giddy with excitement, because this is exactly what I was looking for this season. The color, the style... everything. And it's super important to me to have a cross-body strap that I can use, plus something that's big enough to fit all mine and my kids' junk! SQUEEE! So stoked about this.

And that's it for this Stitch Fix!! What did you think?? What do you think I kept?? ;-)

Now for the giveaway!! I've teamed up with Stitch Fix, and one lucky winner will receive a $50 Stitch Fix credit! Only catch? You need to be signed up with them. So hurry and sign up, and fill our your style profile if you haven't already! You just might win the credit to put toward some awesome clothing. And if not?? Well, I'm betting you'll love this service anyway and will want to continue with them!

So here are the ways you can enter! Best of luck everyone! The winner will be chosen on April 15th!

**UPDATE: This giveaway has ended!! Congratulations to the winner, Trish (Entrant #1172)!!**

I am a cardigan girl with jeans on the weekends and slacks on the weekday. I am getting my second fix today! I love how its starting to get me out of my comfort zone a little bit

Angie's Angle said...

I am very relaxed and comfortable!

Kimberly said...

Lately, very casual! I'm a jeans and t-shirt kinda girl. ;) I like to dress up a little bit more when going out though. I like casual chic, with a little bit of edge and bohemian touches. ;)

Nora Spaulding said...

I would say its girly comfort. Definetly very tee shirt and jeans kinda person but i love sweaters or a flowy top or like i just got a kimono for the first time ever. my style is evolving right now.

Kimberly said...

And BTW, I love the jersey top and the purse! I've pinned that purse and another similar one in the same color...hoping I get either one in my next fix...such a fun color!

Molls said...

Hard question! My workwear is business casual, I usually go for fun, girly tops with a simple pant of black or gray pants. Once I get home however, I usually change into jeans. I have 5 pairs from Stitch Fix and recently donated all other jeans I owned because nothing fits me as well as their pants!!

I started getting fixes about a year ago after seeing several bloggers (including you!) posting about what you received. In fact, I requested a couple pieces from your last fix! :-)

Heather Mundwiler said...

My style lately is definitely casual laid back. I'm heading into my first Texas summer and looking forward to light and airy sundresses!

Kate Greer said...

I am a tshirt and jeans kinda girl.

Jessica said...

I love everything! The purse is a very pretty color, perfect for spring! I have to try this out. Thanks for the giveaway!

Kathryn said...

I'm definitely a classic girl! Layers in jackets and accessories are my favorite thing ever-- much like StitchFix is becoming to me! :)

Lindsey Fetzik said...

I'm also really into floral this season. I've never been into floral, or girly prints, but this year I'm loving them!

Lauren Roell said...

I have a more preppy style. I love skirts and dresses, and ballet flats are my go-to shoe. Flowy shirts and dresss are my favorites.

About this month's fix... the only one I don't really care for is the same one you are on the edge about, the blue and pink 3/4 sleeve. I love the rest!

Lauren said...

This is a hard question. I'm not one to follow all the styles/trends right away. I am learning to branch out a little bit and try new things thanks to StitchFix.

Keep the black floral top. It accentuates your great arms!

Ashley Dalton said...

I am clueless about style... That's why I am loving Stitch Fix!

Laura said...

Love the beautiful bright bag and the floral blouse. I like the soft blue top on you, too. Thanks for the giveaway!

SLAM said...

During the work week, I love a cute dress and sandals-definitely business chic. On the weekend I'm more casual with shorts and a cute tank.
I would keep #3, 4, and 5! Love that bag!

jen said...

i love that last shirt and of course that bag, hoping 3rd time is the charm for my stitchfix!

Julie S. said...

I am on a boho kick lately-- fringe vest, distressed jeans, kimonos. I am pretty much willing to try any trend once BUT I know that some things just won't work for me!

ADSchill said...

I think you know that I know you got the purse. And that floral top is the bomb. I like comfort items that are multipurpose and have a hint of romantic style.

Valerie Earnest said...

I love it all! I have a very similar purse, only a bit lighter in color. Enjoy!

Lynne Patton said...

Classic with a twist of trendy. Now that I'm pregnant it's tough to find clothes that are cute and fit my style. I hear Stitch Fix now does maternity. I might have to try it again!

Liz said...

I signed up for Stitch Fix a couple weeks ago after seeing a friend post about it on FB and have been devouring reviews ever since (yours are some of my favorite). I NEED that satchel in my life and hope my stylist can fulfill the request in my fix :) thanks for another great review, I'd definitely keep the floral blouse it looks great on you!

Michele Leaver said...

I adore Stitch Fix...received two fixes so far and have kept all five things each time! Yay!

Kelley said...

My style is definitely girly comfort. I love flowy tops, dresses, polka dots...etc, but I want to be comfortable!

vtgirl2011 said...

My style is flowy tops with skinny jeans (maybe "boho casual"). I love the pintuck blouse above!!

Cara said...

My style is pretty lazy and whatever maybe looks okay and is comfy! I need a serious overhaul, and have been seriously thinking about signing up for Stitch Fix to help me define a better style!

Whitney H said...

Is it weird that I don't think that I have a personal style? I like to wear tons of things but the most important thing for me is comfort! I have to be comfortable!

Courtney said...

They sent me light wash skinnies once and I thought meh at first too. Definitely not what I gravitate toward, but I kept them and I LOVE them. They go with everything and are so cute and so I vote that you keep them! I also super love the bag you got. Such a great color!

Lindley said...

These are all so cute! It looks like our styles are pretty similar 😊 I received my first fix last month and I am already looking forward to my next one!

Hege | Repolished said...

Love that flower top on you Mandy! Happy Anniversary! :)

Meghan said...

Jeans and t-shirt, but I want to branch out from that!

Mary Liswell said...

I'm definitely a t shirt and jeans kind of girl and I love how stitch fix is helping me branch out. I really love the floral top you got!

Emily F. said...

My clothing style is classic but casual. I love lace and pearls!

jyonash said...

I have never tried them, but I have lost a lot of weight and have practically nothing to wear and hate shopping so it may be worth checking into! I like the jeans!!

Jodi said...

I like the 1st shirt but not the 2nd. I LOVE the bag! You make me want to join SO badly but then I know I will spend an extra 100 or 200 hundred bucks a month. Lol! But maybe someday soon b/c I love all your stuff and it seems like so much fun.

Jamie Lewis said...

I am loving the items you got. I think I might need to change my profile and get some accessories. That bag is gorgeous. I want it!!!

Megan Stilley said...

I like to think of my style as casual classic. Basic items that are all comfortable but still somewhat stylish.

Once Upon A Time said...

Always striving for that balance between cute and comfy!

andrea said...

I am a jeans and t-shirts kinda gal! I enjoy dressing up, but overall I just want to be comfortable.

Cousin Becky said...

Love the last look with the purse! Cute... tempted...

Tamara said...

I'd say classy casual... I love pieces that can double between work and weekends!

Elizabeth R. said...

Classic / casual.

Claire C. said...

I just signed up for my first box and I can't wait to try it... Although I wish it was arriving sooner than May 2nd! I think you should keep the first top and the bag :) I love versatile pieces that I can dress down or dress up. Have you tried Rocksbox? Same idea but for jewelry! If not you should!

Danielle Lakes said...

I love that floral top and the jeans! I need that bag in my life!

Jodi said...

Comfy!

Health, Love & Fire said...

I would say I'm casual dressy - I like to mix jeans with nice blouses or tops :)

Margaret said...

That last blouse and the bag- swoon!! I love them both!!

I really like bright colors- so I try to always add a pop of color to my outfits, whether in my business casual work attire or more relaxed weekend wear

Joules (from Pocketful of Joules) said...

My personal style is a mixture of hippy + a little edgy. =)

Kathryn said...

I love classic preppy looks!

twomiracles said...

My style is definitely laid back and comfy. lately I have been trying to add pieces to my wardrobe and dress it up a little bit. I love stitch fix and the way they get me to try things outside of my box.

Karen Bettencourt said...

My style has like you been going through a lot of changes since Stitchfix (almost 1 year). Mostly though I am a skinny jeans, tank top, and cardigan girl.

Becky said...

My style is classic, tailored and feminine - but also comfortable, when possible!

kaley said...

gah, i LOVE that bag. i'm a skinny jean, tshirt and flops kinda girl - but i do love wearing long, flowy dresses on occasion! i would love to win this credit!

Adrianna Douma said...

My style is casual, since I stay home with my kids! I got the same purse in my last fix and am obsessed!!!

CJ said...

Casual but I try to look tidy, if that makes sense. I love that black floral sleeveless blouse. Striking!

Aislinn said...

I would say I am casual yet preppy. I love to dress up once in awhile and wear heels.

Diana Trotter said...

The last out is my favorite on you, I love that blouse!!! Plus that bag, great combo. I like the 2nd top on you too, the pattern and color combo is different. It looks like a nice, relaxing outfit for the house or for grocery shopping, sometimes you need outfits like those!

Britt Moore said...

I think the Lucia Embroidered V-Neck Jersey Top looks great on you! I love StitchFix

Heather said...

My style is casual and comfortable! I like jeans and t-shirts, but also like dresses for work.

I love classic pieces and floral dresses.

Kara Heitzenrater said...

I love classic with detials.

Amy said...

You always get the best clothes!

Robin said...

I'm a casual girl - jeans and comfy tops - but am trying to expand my wardrobe and discover new styles. It would be awesome to win your giveaway as I just signed up for Stitch Fix and expect my first fix on 4/20! Yay!

Amy Beth said...

I just heard about Stitch Fix this week. I can't wait to try it out!!

Emily said...

Machine washable children friendly but still classy. :)

Lauren said...

I feel like I am getting lazier and lazier in my clothing choices. It's now whatever is most comfortable aka workout clothes! But I am looking for dressier tops to go with my jeans :)

Teresa Cox said...

I like being comfortable so I'm usually pretty casual; jeans, t-shirts, cardigans are always my go-to. But since getting pregnant I am in love with maxi dresses! So comfy and they're always stylish.

Jenn, hellorigby.com said...

I'm guessing that you kept the last two! The floral blouse is my favorite on you - so cute! I'd describe my style as bohemian with a classic spin. :)

Marissa Giddens said...

I love the bag you got in your box! It's so cute! My personal style is typically casual, but I enjoy the occasional flared skirt every now and then!

Amanda Smith said...

Dressy but comfortable. As a teacher I have to be dressed up every day, but like to still be comfortable moving around constantly.

Oak & Oats said...

Cute and Classic!

meg mcilvaine said...

I love #4!

S said...

My style is classic with bold colors and patterns.

Radically Abandoned said...

My style is comfy feminine. It has to be soft and wearable, but also cute and feminine. Gap, Anthro, Banana Republic and JCrew are my style go-tos :)

Gennie Parkman said...

Oh my gosh, that floral top is just the best! I want it now, too! haha :) Mine is casual but feminine. :) Love JCrew, Nordstrom, Loft, places like that. :)

Betsy Gettis said...

I'm a jeans girl, all the way! I definitely think I need to try out StitchFix again...this fix is awesome!!
