I kept everything in this April 2018 Stitch Fix review!

This is only the second time that I have kept everything from my Stitch Fix box. I tried to be a lot more specific in my note to the stylist with what I was looking for and it paid off. Did I love every item? No. But 4 outta 5 ain’t bad!
What is Stitch Fix?
If you already know what Stitch Fix is all about, go ahead and skip over this part. If you’re new to Stitch Fix, here is a brief summary of what you can expect.
Stitch Fix is a clothing subscription box. You can sign up to receive boxes on certain intervals, or just order a box whenever you want (this is the option I always choose so I don’t have to remember to cancel etc.).
Each box you order will come with 5 items. These items are clothing, shoes, accessories, and jewelry. Stitch Fix now offers add-ons as well. These are items like camisoles, underwear, and bras that you can order in addition to your 5 items.
When you first sign up, you’ll fill out a style survey. Be brutally honest with this section! You’ll also have the opportunity to add any notes when you schedule your fix. I usually use this area to request certain items that I may have seen in other reviews or on Pinterest, or to request certain types of items. You definitely don’t want to skip this part. I find that being really detailed in the notes section helps to ensure that you get items that you will love!
After everything is filled out, choose the date you’d like to receive your fix.
You pay a $20 styling fee that is credited towards anything you purchase. Shipping is free both ways. Buy what you love, return what you don’t. If you buy all 5 items, you’ll also get a 25% discount! And yes, if you don’t buy anything, the $20 fee is not refunded (as it goes towards the time to curate the items and their shipping costs). There has only ever been one time that I didn’t buy a single item.
Now that that’s out of the way, let’s get to the clothes!
April 2018 Stitch Fix Review
For this fix, I asked for Spring items. I requested certain colors (I’m obsessed with mustard yellow lately) and even made notes as to what I didn’t want (hot pink!).
My stylist was Roseann again. I was a little nervous after the last box, but it seems we’re back on track now!
Shaine Ruffle Detail Silk Blouse by 41 Hawthorn ($78.00)
This was the first shirt I tried on. It’s actually dark green, but looks more black in the photo. I wasn’t sure I’d like the color on me and the length seemed a little short.
But, when I tried it on, I loved it! I like the neckline and the ruffles (they are hard to see in the photo, sorry!) and even though I’m pale as can be right now, the green didn’t look too bad! I think it will look much better once I have a little self-tanner on again, though.
This was an expensive shirt and if I wasn’t keeping everything I would have returned this based on cost alone. I don’t have a problem paying more for higher quality clothing, but since this is a shirt I won’t wear all the time, I don’t think it would have been worth it (for me) to buy on it’s own.
Korrey Flutter Sleeve Cotton Top by Collective Concepts ($54.00)
Roseann saw that I had this pinned on my fashion board on Pinterest and was able to find one to send to me! She sized up on this item, knowing that sometimes tops are a little snug in the chest for me.
I think I would have been fine in my usual size, but this shirt wasn’t so big that it looked bulky on me. I don’t care for it untucked as much as I do with the front tucked in. This is also a great shirt for layering, which I do often!
I did look to see if an exchange was available, but there wasn’t. I do love that exchanging sizes is now an option though!
Garis Cross Front Linen Top by Market & Spruce ($54.00)
As soon as I saw this, I knew I was going to keep it. I don’t know what my obsession with this shade of yellow is lately, but I want it all! It’s not a flattering color on me at the moment, but after a little self tanner, it will be perfect!
I love the v-neck and the bow at the bottom! The tie is actually adjustable so you can wear the bottom loose, or tighten it.
The fabric is a little itchy, but it’s pretty minor, and won’t stop me from wearing this top as much as possible!
Matt Knit T-shirt Dress by RD Style ($54.00)
Roseann sized up with this dress as well. I’m really glad she did because even a size up, this is still just a little tight in the chest area. I’m going hard with my diet and exercise still, so I’m hopeful this will fit perfect in a few weeks!
She mentioned pairing this with cute sneakers and that’s exactly how I picture wearing this, along with a cute jacket! This dress has a little pocket on the front and is slightly longer in the back.
This isn’t the highest quality item, but it’s definitely a great casual piece for running around with my kids this season.
Topanga Cargo Zipper Detail Skinny Pant by Pistola ($88.00)
So, these jeans were actually a miss for me. I only kept them because with the 25% discount, there were basically free.
They are my usual size for jeans, but way too tight. I also don’t love the zippers up the side of the leg. The smaller pocket zippers don’t bother me as much and I do like the unique color.
I’m still undecided as to if I will hold onto them to see if they fit in a few months, or if I’ll list them on eBay, or if I’ll donate them. For now, they are hanging out in my closet until I decide.
I’m really happy with this fix! I think that Roseann, once again, took everything I said into consideration when making her choices for me. I’m kind of a plain Jane when it comes to pants and sizing can be so tricky! Just seeing how a shirt in one size can be too big and the next item in a size bigger is too small makes me totally understand how difficult it can be for the stylists! I definitely have to give her credit for trying to figure out when to size up for me.
The total for my fix was $328.00. The 25% discount of $82.00 brought the total paid to $246.00 or just under $50.00 per item. For reference, I choose the $50-100 range for most items in my style survey. They have lower and higher-priced options, as well as maternity and men’s boxes now too!
