Stitch Fix Review – April 2017


Every month, when I sit down to write my next Stitch Fix review, I think “Man, this month has FLOWN by!”.  April is no different!  I can’t believe the month is already half over.


My April Stitch Fix box came 5 days late, which ended up working well with my schedule to make time for taking pictures.  I had some serious battle of the wills going on about whether I should peek on my Stitch Fix app ahead of time or not, but in the end, I waited to be surprised.  I’m always happy I waited.


I didn’t request anything specific this month, so this box was a complete surprise!  I did request a “budget” fix to see what price points looked like.  It turns out Stitch Fix on a budget is FUN!

(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!)


Right out of the box, I liked everything!  And this month, I thought it would be fun to take the kids to the park to play & fly kites for my photoshoot.  Let’s check out April’s box!

Item # 1:  Loveappella Nay Crochet Trim Knit Top


First impression: I loved that this cream tank top wasn’t see-through!  That’s a rare quality in a light-colored cream top, in my experience.


Unfortunately, the pros ended there for me.  I felt that the fit was a little off & I didn’t love the cut – it was boxy and too flowy at the bottom for my taste.


Yep.  Sending this one back.  If only my muffin top was returnable, too!  😉

Item # 2:  Fun2Fun Andrae Tie Neck Blouse


I’m a sucker for floral patterns – this one is no exception!


Isn’t it cute?  The drawstring is a nice touch, too.  The pattern, like I said, is adorable!  And the fabric was light & airy, too.


The length, though, was short on me.  I plan to send this one back, too.

Item # 3:  Papermoon Lonni Crochet Back Knit Top


This was my least favorite item in the box – I like the crochet detailing, especially in the back, but I wasn’t a huge fan of the plainness of the top.  But check out that price!!  $38?!  Way to go Stitch Fix for a budget-friendly item!



It grew on me after trying it on.  And even more after reviewing the pictures.


I dunno, y’all.  I might end up keeping it.  It’s cute, subtle, and a good price!

Item # 4:  Dear John Lillie Cuffed Demin Shorts


You’ve been seeing these shorts all through my previous pictures.  I couldn’t really change bottoms in the park, so I wore them with all 4 of the tops Stitch Fix sent me.


I love the Dear John brand.  These shorts are no different: great quality, good length, and good fit.


My only minor, small complaint?  The cuff isn’t sewn in place.  It came pre-rolled, but after 1 wash, it will be hard to re-roll.   And this mama don’t do ironing  Ain’t nobody got time for that.  Because of that, I’ll probably send the shorts back.

Item # 5:  Leo & Nicole Amalia Knit Top


I saved the best (& cheapest) for last!




It’s long enough to wear with leggings.  The pattern is orange and I have nothing orange in my closet.  I can’t remember the last time I tried on something orange that I liked that wasn’t Halloween themed.


I’m keeping it!  At $34 it’s basically a no-brainer.


Overall, this month’s fix was SO fun to try on and decide on.  I would have kept those shorts, if not for the cuff/roll not being sewn in place.  That orange top – my keeper – is just the best!  I love it.

Would you have kept something different?  What item was your favorite?
