I’ve tried Stitch Fix before, but it had been a while and I thought it was time to do it again! Sadly a lot of my warm weather clothes don’t fit, but let’s not talk about that, so I thought this would be a great opportunity to get some shorts, capris or a maxi skirt. I always make sure to remind my stylist that I live in Florida and I do enjoy having someone push me a bit outside of my comfort zone when looking to get new clothes. I do get stuck in quite a rut.

Are you familiar with Stitch Fix? It’s a styling service subscription box that sends you five items per box, ranging from jewelry and jeans to purses and shoes. You fill out a style profile that lets you select everything from if you like to show off your shoulders to linking to a pinterest board where you can pin items you like to help give your stylist inspiration, here’s mine! The box costs $20 upfront and that goes towards whatever you purchase. If you do choose to purchase all five items you get a 25% discount.
Stitch Fix Review April 2018 Box
Ready to see what I received? As I mentioned, I asked for springy options that are appropriate for Florida weather, and possibly shorts and/or capris. This time of year long-sleeved won’t do me any good unless it’s a cardigan to wear in the office. Please remember that I am not a fashion blogger, nor used to modeling clothes on here so don’t judge!
Everything always looks so pretty packaged in the box! At a first glance, I was very excited by the colors and variety of fabrics. I always love to see the styling suggestions that they have for each item.
Outfit One: Clothing Item 1 and 2
The jeans are Cosmic Blue Love – Adrianne Distressed Boyfriend Jean in Light Blue, $88 and the shirt is Michael Stars – Verna Dolman Sleeve Knit Top in Light Gray, $88. The jeans were a decent fit and I liked them, but I didn’t love the fit enough to justify the price tag. I’ve never really found a dolman top that I like how it fit, and this one was no exception. The fabric also felt almost like sweatshirt material so not quite right for me this time of year. Verdict – I sent both of them back.
Outfit Two: Clothing Item 1 and 3
These are the jeans again from the first outfit with a Skies are Blue – Edgar Border Print Knit Top, $54. I loved the colors of this tank top, the pattern and the back was so much fun! I don’t currently have a bra to go with this which was one strike against it. Verdict – I almost got it, but decided that I wanted to limit myself to one item and this wasn’t the winner.
Outfit Three: Clothing Item 3 and 4
This is the top again from the second outfit with a pair of Dear John – Finnegan Cuffed Short, $58. The shorts were nice, but the pockets gaped a bit and I could tell they would bother me. Verdict – sent back
Outfit Four: Clothing Item 5
The top is my own and I’m wearing it with a Gilli – Morgana Maxi Skirt, $48. The colors are fun and it’s so soft and comfortable. I wanted a maxi skirt and was happy with this one! Verdict – kept!
Overall I was pretty pleased with my Stitch Fix and look forward to my next one. It’s nice to get some different options and find some new pieces for my closet that are a bit different than what I already have! Have you tried Stitch Fix? Give it a try!
