Stitch Fix: Reveal and Review – April 2016

During spring break we had a fabulous week in Orlando with our family. It was wonderful. What was not so wonderful was the 12 hour painfully slow drive home. However, the misery of sitting in a car for so long with a toddler and baby was soon forgotten when we pulled into the drive and saw my Stitch Fix box on the porch 2 days early! To top it off, it was very nearly a 5/5.

Let’s see what was inside…

Pixley Kornelia 2fer Textured Knit Dress – $74

I LOVE this dress so much! It’s perfect for date nights and is a great balance of young and sexy (love the neckline and tight bottom) and age appropriate! I requested all dresses and skirts in this box but other than that, was fairly vague. This was one of the reasons I love Stitch Fix – a complete surprise and now a much loved inclusion in my wardrobe.

Loveappella Clarabella Lace Detail Maxi Skirt- $58

I love the lace detailing cut out. My stylist said it was very ‘chic and on-trend’. I don’t know if it’s ‘on-trend’ but it’s very me! However, it is just a little too tight and I like my maxi skirts to be a bit brighter as I tend to wear them with plain t-shirts as you can see from how I’ve styled this outfit. It was a hard decision on whether to keep this but in the end, the waist band had the final say!

Le Lis Cecilia Zipper Detail Aline Skirt – $58

I love the pale yellow of this skirt. I have tons of this color pinned on my Pinterest board so clearly my stylist looked. My stylist also recommended I pair it with a feminine blouse. I tried it with last month’s Skies are Blue Henley blouse and I wasn’t loving it. My husband said I looked like a 80s receptionist. Hmmmm. So I tried again with the Papermoon blouse from Fix#6. This looked much better. I love pale yellow and black – it’s a winning color combination in my opinion. Anyway, I decided against keeping this as didn’t love the fit/length on me. Plus it was super see-through (never good for high school teachers!).

Pixley Dexter Faux Wrap Dress – $68

I was so torn about whether to keep this dress or not! On the one hand, it’s the perfect dress for school – comfy, cute color and just the right length. On the other hand, I just thought it was a little boring and I didn’t love it. I went back and forth on keeping it and in the end, returned it. Hopefully I won’t regret that one!

Gilli Tahj Maxi Dress – $78

I was SO happy this dress was in my box. I requested it specifically and pinned it, but it’s always in high demand on the Stitch Fix B/S/T Facebook groups so I thought it was going to be near impossible to get. Well, I got it! The minute I tried it on, I fell in love and actually wore it out to dinner the next day! It’s flattering, beautiful quality and the colors are fab! LOVE!!!!

Overall impressions:

This was my second with my new stylist Tina and I will be requesting here from now on. It was such a great fix. While I only kept two items, all five were so close to my style and Pinterest boards, that to me, it was a success. That’s what I’m looking for in Stitch Fix and they delivered. Plus I now have two gorgeous dresses for date nights!
