Stitch Fix Review #9: April 2015


Stitch Fix Review April 2015 - The Everyday Warrior

It’s my favorite day of the month! Stitch Fix day!

In case you are not familiar with Stitch Fix, let me bring you up to speed. Stitch Fix is a monthly subscription service (although you don’t have to get one every month, you pick how often) that sends you clothes and accessories based on a style profile that you fill out. You can keep what you like and send back what you don’t. There is a $20 styling fee but if you keep any of the items, the $20 fee is deducted from the total purchase price of the item(s) you keep. If you keep all 5 of the items from your fix you receive a 25% discount on EVERYTHING. Basically it is like playing dress up as an adult…..and it is both fun and addicting!

Every month you can also leave a note for your stylist. So if you have an event that you need some clothes for or if you just have an idea of what kind of pieces you want to add to your wardrobe you can pass that information along!

This time around I told my stylist Diana, that I was looking to build up my Spring / Summer wardrobe and that I was looking for shorts, dresses and short-sleeved or sleeveless tops. I also asked for a new handbag or clutch for Spring as well as a delicate necklace. Diana and I have been together for a while now and she typically always delivers on my requests so let’s take a look and see what she sent me this month!

Stitch Fix Stylist Note - The Everyday Warrior

Item #1: Dear John Finnegan Roll Cuff Chino Short

When I first laid eyes on these shorts I thought that they were super cute! I love the pinstripes and the pink and white coloring. They definitely say Spring and dare I even say Summer, is right around the corner.

The only downside to the shorts is that they are a size too big. I did email Stitch Fix’s customer service to see if I could do an exchange in a smaller size but sadly they informed me that a smaller size is not available. The shorts are 75% cotton so perhaps they will shrink a bit? That’s what I am banking on anyways because I love them too much to part with them.

Item #2: Brixon Ivy Jarred Lace Detail Cap-Sleeve Blouse

As Diana mentioned in my note, this top is similar to the Skies are Blue Kaia Crochet Trim Top that was in my fix last month that I did not keep. And although this blouse is still a bit flowy, I LOVE it!

I love the color and all of the lace detailing. And most importantly I like the way it looks on me. The top can be dressed up or dressed down and I think I will get a lot of use out of it!

Item #3: Street Level Juno Small Folded Clutch

As I mentioned I asked for a bag or clutch this month and Diana sent me this burnt orange clutch. Interestingly, I already have a similar clutch that I kept from fix #3 but it is a different print and fabric. I don’t mind that they are similar because at first glance they do look very different.

My favorite thing about this clutch is the fabric on the inside!

Don’t you love it?! I love small details like that and for me that is what can change something from a so-so item to a must buy item and that fabric has landed the clutch into the keep pile.

Item #4: Zad Alisha Curved Bar Necklace

Zad Alisha Curved Bar Necklace Stitch Fix - The Everyday Warrior

This is the first fix that I have received that has contained two accessory items. Typically I receive one accessory per fix but I asked for a bag and a necklace and Diana sent me what I asked for.

This necklace isn’t exactly what I had in mind when I asked for a delicate necklace and it isn’t something that I would normally give a second look at if I saw it in a store but once I tried it on I really liked it and I think it will be a very versatile necklace.

Status: Kept!

Item #5: Olive & Oak Phoenix Dress

Olive & Oak Phoenix Dress - The Everyday Warrior

This dress definitely says Spring doesn’t it?! I know a lot of people love chevron print but it is a hit or miss with me. Sometimes I love it and sometimes I do not. It just depends on the individual item. I don’t mind the chevron on this dress although I am not sure this is something that I would pick out for myself. But that is the whole point of Stitch Fix, right?!

I do like the detailing on the top of the dress both in the front and in the back but I am not wild about the elastic waistband. I’m a bit on the fence about this dress but since I am keeping the other four items, it is less expensive for me to also keep the dress so I can get the 25% discount.

Status: Kept!

Once again, Diana put together a great fix for me! I love it when I like enough of the items so that I can keep the whole fix and get the 25% off. It is such a great deal that way!
