March came FAST y’all! I can’t believe it. March is one of my favorites months because spring is so close & it’s my birthday month. This particular March, I’m headed on a 3 night cruise on the Disney Dream, which I’m so excited for.
This review is really mostly about the Stitch Fix pieces because when your photographer is your husband, 5 items is 3 items over his patience limit 😉
Quick reminder: For just $1 processing fee, you get a box anytime you want of 2-3 outfits worth of clothing. No pressure to buy or keep and many of the same brands as Stitch Fix offers. The Trendsend boxes gave me my monthly subscription box “fix” without the $20 styling fee.
Here’s what the inside of the Trendsend box looked like:
There were 2 complete outfits in the box. I liked the attention to detail; one of the tops was tucked into the jean jacket.
The jean jacket was nice, really long in the sleeves, which I loved, but it was pricey ($85) and I already have a jean jacket. I really liked the gray striped top, but the torso length was too short. And the jogger pants were so cute & budget-friendly! But I don’t know, there’s something about jogger pants that I don’t like. I felt “meh” about them.
The jogger pants paired with an extra shirt in the box – I loved the color of this top!
This outfit was cute! The plaid top fit me perfectly, the cardigan is cute & a duster length, and the jeans are a favorite brand of mine: Kut from the Kloth. The polka dot scarf is adorable in theory but I felt like I would have no idea how to pull it off in real life.
I ended up keeping a cardigan from Evereve I ordered separately that came the same day as my Trendsend box. I LOVE this cardigan. I saw Joanna Gaines wearing a similar one this past week and hunted one down for myself.
In fact, the earrings, black tee, and cardigan are all from Trendsend and I love them all.
My daughter wanted in on the fun 😉
Anyway….let’s move onto Stitch Fix!
For my March Stitch Fix box I requested things I could cosy up in. Picture wine + book + fire clothing.
(Btw, if you are new to Stitch Fix skip to the end of this post for a short description of the whats and how-tos & for a link to sign up for your own box of happiness!)
After opening up the box, I was loving that there was graphic, stripes, AND floral in there!
Item # 1: Sophie Rue Arwyn Off the Shoulder Pullover
This sweater was my least favorite thing, pulling it out of the box.
It looked unflattering on me and the length was short, so it remained firmly in the return pile for me.
Item # 2: Pink Clover Unwin Cold Shoulder Knit Top
It’s always FUN to see stripes in my Stitch Fix box!
I have to say though, despite the stripes, I really hated this top! (Tell me how you really feel…) Ok, I will: It was baggy in the wrong places, the ties on the shoulder kept coming undone, and there was lots of extra fabric in odd places.
Big fat nope. This went in the return pile, too.
Item # 3: Andrew Marc Performance: Coco Graphic Knit Top
Um, I love this saying! I have a soft spot for graphic tees.
But the tee is a little short (pre wash and dry) and a little see-through for it to be a winner.
Item # 4: LUQ Amadine Raglan Sleeve Knit Top
Isn’t this raglan cute?!
It’s a bright pop of color and I love the raglan style. It’s a tad short but otherwise I like it. I love the price point, too!
I’m on the fence with this one…it’s nice Stitch Fix gives you 3 days to think about it 😉
Item # 5: Market & Spruce Bambrey Cowl Neck Knit Pullover
I saved the BEST for last.
This floral print is just SO amazing. I love it. It screams “spring”. And the length of the pullover is perfect! And it’s not see-through. Love, love, love.
I am keeping this beauty, and taking it on my cruise next week!
So I kept, for sure, the gorgeous floral pullover and that great cardi from my Stitch Fix and Trendsend/Evereve boxes this week for my vacation! I am super pleased with my finds.
