Little joys in life sometimes look like receiving your Stitch Fix box on a Friday when you weren’t expecting it until Saturday. 🙂 I ripped open my 19th fix the very second I saw it and almost immediately loved everything inside. I didn’t have any specific wardrobe needs this time around, so I just asked my stylist to surprise me with a couple dresses, tops, and shorts. She didn’t disappoint!
Side note, but I’m a part of a Stitch Fix Influencers network, and the other day we were asked what our favorite thing about Stitch Fix is. It only took me a second to come up with my answer: the clothes always fit. Always. In the past I’ve struggled with ordering clothing online because brands size their clothing different. A medium top may fit like a large for one brand and a small for another. This is especially true with pants and shorts, but some of my favorite pants and shorts have come from Stitch Fix.
When I started doing these posts 2.5 years ago, I was worried that I would receive pieces of clothing that were too small to pose for pictures in, but somehow that’s never been the case. I truly believe that if you’re honest in your styling profile about your stats and body type that the stylists will be able to pick well-fitting clothing just for you.
Let’s take a look at what my stylist sent this month, and please enjoy finding each of my three munchkins (Hadley, Sadie, and Teddy) sneaking into most of the pics. 🙂
What is Stitch Fix?*
Stitch Fix is a stop-anytime apparel subscription service that sends customers five pieces of clothing and accessories once a month (or more or less depending on one’s preferences) based on price points that one designates in his or her profile. Stitch Fix stylists hand-pick what to send each customer based on one’s online profile created upon sign up. Customers are charged a $20 styling fee upfront per shipment, but the styling fee is later applied to any item(s) the customers chooses to keep. If one chooses to send back all five items, Stitch Fix keeps the $20 fee. A customer’s best bet is to keep at least one item since $20 has already been paid. Stitch Fix also includes a prepaid bag to send all unwanted items back. If a customer chooses to keep all five items, he or she gets a whopping 25% discount off of the entire box. So awesome!

Market and Spruce Moni Dress
Like the fit, color, and style, but I just don’t love it enough overall to pay $68 for it (my most expensive item this month). I can’t see myself jumping up and down to pull this out of my closet, and so for that reason, back it goes! You guys know I only keep items that I’m excited to wear and feel confident in.
Dear John Shorts –
I received a pair of these exact shorts in blue last year and wore them all summer long! I can vouch that these shorts are absolutely fantastic. They wash and wear so well without wrinkling or changing shape. I’m not keeping the pair I just received though because I just purchased a light gray pair of shorts from J. Crew (look for them in tomorrow’s post about Magic Kingdom!) I don’t need two pairs of shorts that look so similar.
Colette Knit Dress –
I slipped on this dress away from the mirror, and not only did it fit like a glove, but it was so incredibly comfy! As I walked to the mirror, I crossed my fingers that I liked how it looked because that would seal the deal. It’s the perfect dress for pairing with sandals and running errands or throwing on with a pair of heels or wedges for a date night. The lace detailing is also beautiful! Definitely a winner. I was really excited to rip the tags off of this one and hang it in my closet.
Honey Punch Mix Material Top –
This top is casual, comfy, and cute, but it doesn’t have me jumping up and down. I’ve kept a mix material top before, so I can see why my stylist sent this one along. I won’t miss it though and consider this one pretty easy to send back.
41Hawthorn Neck Blouse –
I’ve been wanting to add more bold prints to my closet, and this one fits the bill! I love how versatile this top is; I’ll be able to wear it with pants, shorts, and skirts. It’s thick enough where I don’t need to wear a cami underneath, which is rare for sleeveless tops. This is another item that I was confident ripping the tags off and hanging it up in my closet. You’ll be seeing this top in a lot of pictures this spring and summer!
