Stitch Fix Review: April 2014 Spring Styles

As always, I purchase my Stitch Fixes on my own. If you’d like to sign up, I’d love for you to use my affiliate link. I might send you cupcakes or a puppy, or just my undying gratitude.

Wondering how Stitch Fix works? It’s easy! Fill out an online style profile and pay a $20 styling fee. A Stitch Fix stylist puts five amazing pieces in a box and sends it your way. Try the pieces on at home and decide what to keep or send back in the postage-paid envelope. Your $20 styling fee goes towards whatever you keep. So much easier than dragging myself to the mall with two kids in tow.

Welcome to my Stitch Fix Review for April 2014!

Stitch Fix Review April 2014

To be honest, my March fix wasn’t really all that spectacular. There were some communication issues and my stylist missed some of my previous comments about not wanting jeans and the sizing was off. I really think it was an anomaly. The company is growing so quickly (yay) and I think  it’s just growing pains. And I did end up keeping this gorgeous bracelet from my fix, so it wasn’t a total loss.

I went ahead and scheduled another Fix, but it wasn’t going to ship until late May (whomp, whomp). Thankfully, I went back in a few days later and I was able to snag a Fix for this week. (TIP:  keep checking to see if you can get an earlier shipping time) I really want to get some Spring color and life into my wardrobe, as well as get a few great pieces for our Florida vacation next week. I asked for a maxi dress and pieces I could wear here and in Florida. I linked my stylist to my Stitch Fix Fashion board so she could get a sense for my style loves.

This Fix more than made up for last month’s fix. Jinnyi was my stylist this month and she did a great job. I’m really going to need your help this month, y’all. Take a look at my Fix and leave a comment letting me know which pieces you think I should keep or send back.

1. Mystree Mixed Stripe Jersey Maxi Dress $78

Ok, so really? I don’t need help deciding on this one because it’s a YES. I’m just about 5″5′ and finding maxi dresses that don’t drag on the floor is pretty hard. This is the perfect length and I love how it looks with and without a jacket. The jersey material is soft and it’ll be perfect for cool summer nights. And I can wear some great, colorful statement necklaces to give it some pop.

2. Splendid Isla Striped 3/4 Sleeve Pocket Tee $58

This top is actually see through thanks to the eyelet design, but I love it. It’s soft and comfortable and reminds me of California for some strange reason. I wore a nude cami under, but it would look great with a bikini top peeking out during the summer. Also, it’s winter in Western New York Still, so please excuse my ghostly white skin. Thanks.

3. Pomelo Wrenn V-Neck Jersey Top $44
Pomelo Wrenn V-Neck Jersey Top Stitch Fix Review April 2014This top is super soft and I can dress it up or down. It would look great under a blazer or suit coat, but I could wear it with capris and flats or even shorts. I do love the bright color. My only hang up with this shirt is the material seems to wrinkle easily.

4. Tulle Delmare Elephant Print Cut-Out Detail Blouse $48
Tulle Delmare Elephant Print Cut-Out Detail Blouse Stitch Fix Review April 2014My only complaint about this shirt is the cut outs on the shoulders make it necessary to wear a strapless bra with this top and I am not at all a fan of going strapless. That being said, the fit is great and it’s not too billowy. It’s a great silky material with little elephants for the print. It’s not something I’d never buy for myself, and I was a little skeptical when I saw it in the box, but it’s growing on me.

5. C. Luce Donatella Colorblocked Short Sleeve Blouse $54
C Luce Donatella Colorblocked Short Sleeve Blouse Stitch Fix Review April 2014This is the one I’m most torn on whether to keep or send back. I love that it has a total 60’s vibe to the top with the shape and color block. I totally feel a little Mad Men wearing it. There are slits on each side of the shirt, and it definitely shows a lot of stomach if I lift my arms up over my head. So, total toss up on this one.

Total Fix cost: $282.00 (less 25% buy all discount and $20 styling fee= $196.50)

Ok, now it’s your turn. What do you think I should keep and send back? And don’t tell me to send back that maxi dress because it’s mine. All mine.

    I love it all. I, too, wish I could find Maxi dresses or skirts for my 5’2″ height! Love the Eleohant blouse, but if you feel like you won’t wear it simply because if the strapless bra, don’t get it. Could you try one of those bras with see through straps? I totally love the turquoise top!

    I got the v-neck top in my box this month too! I love everything, but hear you on the bra strap issue.

    Thanks for sharing this. I’ve been curious about Stitch Fix. I actually do like everything you got, especially the dress!

    Gah, I love it all! Definitely keep the maxi dress. I love the elephant print shirt, but if you’re not comfortable with wearing the strapless bra each time, send it back! I would say send back the jersey top because it will definitely get too wrinkled. I love the color of the last top. I’m no help!

    The dress and the striped shirt are my favs!

    Ok, LOVE the maxi dress. Tops 2 & 3 make me happiest. Adore that color on you!

    Love the elephant print top! I’m only 5’2 and buy a lot of maxis from Great prices.

    Really? You look adorable in ALL of them!! $196.50 for four quality tops and a slammin’ maxi dress? That’s an awesome deal because they ALL look fab on you! In different ways and for different reasons, you could rock all of these pieces and get your money’s worth!

    Stopping by from Stitchfix blog. I’m patiently awaiting my 2nd fix and hoping to get some cute items! I love shirt #5 the most. I think it’s a keeper!

    You have a gorgeous figure so all the pieces look great on you. If you want to eliminate one piece would say send back the stripe shirt. It my be better quality but you could find one just like it at Old Navy for $15. The dress is a definite keeper!
