March 2015 Stitch Fix

It's my favorite time of the month... my Stitch Fix arrived!

If you don't know what Stitch Fix is, check out my intro post. Here's my past fixes (that I've put up on this blog):

December 2014
January 2015
January/February 2015
February 2015

I thought it would be fun to include my note to my stylist. I'm always impressed by how closely Shan follows my requests. For this month, I asked for:

Note: "Spring, spring... I desperately want spring to arrive in New England. I would love, above all, for florals in my next Fix. I also love white, lace, and bright colors like coral and turquoise this time of year. I also have law prom coming up on April 18th. If you have anything formal (it's a ball), I'd appreciate it in this box even if the price is higher than normal."

And I got...

Isaac Floral Print Tab-Sleeve Blouse:

The first thing I pulled out of my box was this floral blouse. This is perfection for spring! I've been looking for a floral print on a white/cream background, but have had a hard time tracking something similar down.

The only problems with this shirt is the tab sleeves (I find tab sleeves commonly look sloppy on me) and the size. Even though my size in tops is set to "small" on my Style Profile, I ended getting mediums for all my shirts! I'm not sure how the mix-up happened, although I did recently increase my size for dresses and outerwear.

I emailed customer service and asked if they had this top in my size in stock. Luckily, they had this shirt and will send me an exchange.

Verdict: KEPT (after exchange)

Moni Geo Print & Camisole Blouse:

This top certainly satisfies my request for "bright colors." I actually like the pattern and hope to incorporate more patterns into my wardrobe. This is a shirt I've actually received before in black, but I requested this shirt in more colors/patterns because I love the style. It's a shirt I could wear with leggings/jeggings since it covers the bum.

Again, however, this shirt was too large. Luckily Stitch Fix also had this in stock in my size, and so they'll be exchanging this top too.

Verdict: KEPT (after exchange)

Alessandria Crochet Bib Lace Top:

I asked for "white, lace", and this top certainly fits that request. I have mixed feelings about this top. While it's light and airy, which is perfect for spring, I'm not really a peasant top sort of girl (although I'm not sure if this actually is a peasant top - I'm pretty ignorant about fashion). I'm also not crazy about the sleeves that cinch in at the wrists.

However, I can't help but wonder if I'm not giving this top a chance. Like the other shirts, this was too large for me. Since I couldn't return an exchanged item, I decided to let this one go.

Verdict: SENT BACK

Addie V-Neck Dress:

This is the dress that was sent to me for Barrister's Ball. I was certain the dress would be unflattering on me when I pulled it out of the box.

To my surprise, I think it looks pretty good on me. I'm hesitant about sleeveless dresses, since I feel my arms are a little chubby. However, I don't have a LBD and I feel like this could be worn on date nights. Therefore, because of its versatility, I'm keeping it.

Verdict: KEPT

Tamar Lace Detail Sweater:

My last item was a sweatshirt with lace insets. The lace insets are present in both the front and the back.

I like the idea of this, but it just didn't fit my style. I'm generally not a fan of sweatshirts because I feel like they're too boxy. This one was no exception.

Verdict: SENT BACK

Barring the sizing problem, I felt like the customization of this fix was very good. I asked for "florals" and "white, lace, and bright colors." I also asked for a dress for Barristers Ball. In response, Shan sent me a floral blouse, a colorful top, two tops with lace, and a dress. She pretty much hit every request I threw at her this fix!

I would also like to give a shout out to Stitch Fix's customer service. They responded to my email within the same day I sent it and were courteous throughout the entire process. I'll report back on the exchange process, but I really appreciate good customer service!


  1. I think your new LBD looks great on you. I'm glad you decided to keep it.

  2. Thanks! That's a relief! Sometimes it's hard to get over insecurities, but I won't be so self-conscious to wear it now. :)

  3. that dress looks amazing on you!! glad you kept it. that's good to hear about their customer service!
