A Stitch Fix Full Of Colors & Patterns

If you remember, my February fix kinda missed the mark. Okay, it a lot missed the mark. It was the first box in a while, that I really didn't like anything. And while I was disappointed, I didn't give up, because I know Stitch Fix could redeem itself.

And thank goodness I gave it another shot, because this month's box did not disappoint! Every item pleasantly surprised me, and I can honestly say, I like it all! I liked the pieces so much, I decided to spare you the annoying mirror selfie's, and break out the ol' tripod to take an ACTUAL picture of everything. You're welcome ;-)

Before I dive into what I got this month, let me tell you about Stitch Fix, you know, in case you've been living under a rock ;-)

First thing, stitchfix.com and check it out! Next, create your style profile. Also, be sure to start a Stitch Fix Style pinboard and link it to your profile so that your stylists can get a feel for your clothing tastes and preferences. Then schedule your fix!! The stylists will hand pick 5 items for you to try on. They send the clothing pieces directly to your house, you try them on and decide what to keep (if anything) and then you send back what you don't want. Super easy and convenient!
  • There's a $20 styling fee, which you can use toward your order. (that's awesome!!)
  • If you keep all 5 items you receive 25% off your order.
  • You choose your price range.
  • The more feedback you give on the pieces sent to you, the better they get over time. So be sure to be very specific to your stylists so that they can send you things you'll love.
Not that I haven't said this a million times, but I love Stitch Fix! They keep my closet interesting and I still get excited every time I see one of those cute Stitch Fix boxes show up on my doorstep!

Alright here we go!

Item #1- Ursula Pleat Detail Blouse by Daniel Rainn
LOVED this. I'm always on the lookout for bright & fun patterns, that aren't played out like the chevron print. This was the first piece of clothing that stuck out to me in this box, and I was even more in love once I tried it on! I'm excited to get some use out of this once the sun decided to show it's face.

Item #2 - Evella Boatneck Top by Market & Spruce
So first let me say that I do like this top, a lot, actually. But will I wear it? That's a different story all together. I'd like to say that I would, but I could see it just hanging in my closet and never coming off the hanger. So I'm on the fence. What do you think??

Item #3 - Elaine Ikat Print Pocket-Front Knit Shirt by Market & Spruce
This was a pleasant surprise. I will admit that I peeked on the app to see what was coming, and when I saw the picture of this top I wasn't totally stoked. But in person, I kinda like the bright pink/purple, and the pattern is fun. I don't have any Ikat pattern tops, so it would be nice to add the variety to my closet. Not to mention this is a very comfortable, casual shirt. So that's a plus.

Item #4 - Charlone Halter Blouse by Skies are Blue
Again, another super fun pattern. I am REALLY loving the patterns in this fix! When I'm out shopping on my own, I tend to just stick to plain, solid colors. So thank goodness Stitch Fix is lookin' out for me, keeping my closet versatile. ;-)

Item #5 - Balla Cargo Vest by Laju
This was the biggest surprise to come out of the box. When I peeked at my fix on the Stitch Fix app, they didn't have a picture of this item, so I didn't know what to expect. I just saw the name of it, saw the word "vest", and thought "NAH!" I totally wrote it off. And even when I pulled it out of the box, I was skeptical. However, I tried it on and was really shocked at how much I like it!!

So yah, this vest is completely different than anything I own, or would ever think to buy at the store. But again, another reason why I love this company -- they totally take me out of my little bubble. Sometimes they hit it out of the park, other times they don't. But hey, more often than not I'm happy!

OH! AND!! Guess what? Stitch Fix is now offering SHOES! Yes, shoes. Now they can dress you head to toe, literally. How awesome is that? Make sure to update your style profile to include your shoe size! :)


OK, so what did you think of my Stitch Fix this month?? What should I definitely keep? Should I send anything back??

#1, #4 and #5 are my favs! This almost makes me want to get another fix just so I can request that first top!

Number one is awesome!! Keep, keep, keep!

I'm in love with that vest. It is a serious keep. My second favorite item was item number 1. Overall, you got a great Stitch Fix this month!

I would say it's a 5/5!!! I would definitely keep the striped Market and Spruce! I requested this top and got it in my last fix and it's the perfect striped staple that every closet needs and it looks fab on you!!
