Stitch Fix Review #11

Time for another Stitch Fix Review! This month I asked my stylist to send me colorful prints and patterns to get me ready for the Spring. I also requested a grey military jacket because I've wanted one for a long time now. I love that I can choose how specific to make my requests to my stylist. I can list specific items I'd like to receive, or leave my requests more vague so that I'm surprised with what they choose for me. I love surprises!
Here is the note my stylist wrote to me this month: Hi Stephanie, I had fun filling this Fix with prints and patterns that are perfect for spring! I was able to find you the Lydia blouse by Collective Concepts that you pinned. Nothing says spring like this bright floral print, style it with your leggings and a cardigan for a trip to the park, or dress it up with some skinny jeans and heels for a date night out! The Papermoon tank and the Alejandra blouse are great layering pieces that will add some fun color and patterns to your wardrobe. The Papermoon tank will look especially good with your Abrianna cardigan! I was also able to find you a fabulous grey cargo jacket by Coffeeshop that I think you are going to love. It runs a little small so I sent you the next size up thinking it will be perfect for spring and by fall you will be able to wear it with a sweater! Enjoy! Heather
My pictures this month in the clothes are pretty bad. I've been taking care of sick kids and trust don't want to see what I look like right now. So I have conveniently chopped off my head in these pictures. You should thank me! Unfortunately I also didn't have time to pair these Stitch Fix items with the appropriate clothes from my closet. So I just threw on a paid of white jeans and snapped some pics really quickly. I'll do better next month!

Here is what I got:

Kennedi Knit Sleeve Cargo Jacket by Coffeeshop
This jacket was sooo close to what I was looking for! The grey color was perfect, as was the fit. Unfortunately I just wasn't in love with the printed knit sleeves. If this jacket had been grey all over I'm almost positive I would have kept it. Adam loved it and told me to keep it. However, I felt like the sleeves made it less versatile. If I kept it I would always be uncertain about what kind of shirt to wear underneath it. I want a military jacket that can be worn over any print or pattern, and this one just wasn't it. So close though! Status: RETURNED

Alejandra Split Neck Blouse by FUN2FUN
When I first pulled this top out of the box I wasn't in love with it. The print didn't look like "me" and it looked too big. But then I tried it on. Adam immediately loved it and told me to keep it. I love how cold the material is and think it would be great to wear in the warm springtime weather here. I can picture it looking cute with dark skinny jeans and a cardigan and or even with white shorts in the summer. I also really like the split neckline. The last two shirts I kept from Stitch Fix have a split neck and I think it is a flattering neckline on me. (I'm learning all sorts of things from doing Stitch Fix!) Status: KEPT

Lydia Floral Print Key-Hole Blouse by Collective Concepts
This tank top is one that I pinned to my Stitch Fix pinterest board after seeing it on a number of other Stitch Fix reviews. I thought the floral pattern was really unique, and I can picture it looking great under my mustard colored cardigan. Unfortunately the top just didn't "wow" me in person like I thought it would. I love the colors but something about the fit just felt strange. I was kind of disappointed that I didn't love it like I thought I would. Status: RETURNED

Renoir Kimono by Honey Punch
When I read online that I would be receiving a kimono in my box I thought "Oh no, I am NOT a kimono kind of person". Then I googled a few kimonos that other Stitch Fixers had received and started to get excited by the idea of a kimono. I was seeing lots of pretty floral prints and I could imagine them looking cute over a white t-shirt in the warm weather. So when I pulled this black and white chevron print kimono out of my box, I was confused. This wasn't what I was expecting at all! Once I tried it on I hated how it made me look. The dolman-style sleeves just make me look really wide across the top. I'm already large enough on top right now, and I don't need to keep anything that's going to made me look bigger.

Ocala Henley Tank by Papermoon
 I really liked this tank top. The fabric was incredibly soft and the shirt fit really well. I even put my Abrianna cardigan over it, as my stylist suggested I pair the two together. I went back and forth over this shirt, but ultimately decided to only keep one item this month. I probably would have kept this shirt if my budget allowed for it! Status: RETURNED

So as you can see I only kept one item this month. But that's okay because I am saving up my clothing allowance for future fixes! Once I lose more baby weight I want to request some jeans, shorts, and summery dresses from Stitch Fix. My summer wardrobe is seriously lacking, and I can't wait to see what Stitch Fix sends me next time!

What are you waiting for? Have you signed up for Stitch Fix yet? I would love it if you used my referral link here, as I receive a small clothing credit for each person who signs up under my name. Let me know if you get a Fix!
