Stitch Fix Review – March 2016

MarchStitchFix2016

It’s time for another Stitch Fix!  March’s fix came up fast, it seemed like, but I was really looking forward to March because I wanted to see some good spring items this time around.

In preparation for my March fix, I went and stalked Stitch Fix‘s Polyvore account (here) and pinned some new items to my Pinterest board.  My wonderful stylist send 3 items that I pinned!

(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!)

Look at all the wonderful color this time!  I thought this box would be a 5/5 for sure when I opened it up (first impressions).

At first glance, it’s SO good, right?  You’ve got your floral, stripes, staple black, and embroidered tops!  I was fairly certain my budget was in for a world of hurt this month.

But then after trying all the things on & styling them a couple ways, I’m thinking I might keep 1 or 2 items.

But let’s see how things look on!

Item # 1: THML Lenon Embroidered Top (a top I had pinned)

Gorgeous, isn’t it?  I love the cut & pattern!

Even the back has this cute detail ❤

But can you see what makes me hesitant on this top?  It’s see-through.  Now, I *know* I can wear a cami underneath it, but I’m not sure I want to have to mess with it.  I wish it was a thicker material to start with so I could just pop this top on and go.

I need help deciding on this piece!

 

Item # 2: Loveappella Malbec Elbow patch Knit top

Meh.  I like the stripes but the list of likes stops there.  The length is too short in the torso, the elbow patches are not my thing, and the sleeves are too short.  This was my husband’s favorite piece until I tried it on and the fit was off.  So this will be sent back.

Item # 3: Papermoon Casine Crochet Back Knit Top

This was my least favorite piece out of the box.

Not ready yet, husband/photographer!

And it remains a “no” after trying it on.  The fabric is clingy in the wrong spots, I’m not a huge fan of the busy pattern, and the crochet detail in the back isn’t really something I love.  This was another send back item.

Item # 4:  RD Style Blaire Cold Shoulder Pullover Sweater (another pinned item)

Oh my, do I like this sweater!

Look how fun the sleeves are!!

I’m fairly sure I’ll be keeping this sweater for a date night or girls night out.  I pretty much love it.

Item # 5:  Crescent Jardell Chiffon Overlay Blouse (I pinned this, too!)

IMG_2536

Sigh.  Isn’t this such a pretty top?  Feels so girly.

But.  It’s pretty short in the torso.  I even had in my note under my pin: “I like this top if it’s long enough.”  It’s not long enough, I don’t think 😦  What do you think?  Keep this anyway?

So first impression out of the box, I thought I would be keeping all 5 items in my fix.  But after trying things on & styling them a bit, I think I’ll keep 1-2 items.  I’m on the fence about the THML blouse and the Crescent floral top.

Of course, I can’t wait for my next box!  🙂
