Stitch Fix Review-April 2016

When it arrived a couple of weeks ago, I loved what I saw in my April Stitch Fix because I still want some bright prints for my spring and summer wardrobe! 
There were many cute outfits pictured on the cards they sent with my box.
Once I unfolded everything, I was a little disappointed. I knew some of the styles and lengths wouldn't work great with my complexion and figure.

Here's what I received this month:

Pixley Edmond Henley Knit Top: sent back. This is the second shirt of this type I have received and I wanted a less busy pattern than the first time I got the shirt. This came in my favorite colors, but the print was too crazy for me again and it didn't look great on as a result. I do love that this shirt is soft and really flexible because it can be worn with shorts, pants, or a skirt.
Brixon Ivy Lex Textured Knit Dress: sent back. This was a beautiful dress in a lovely color and print. Two negatives for me stood out though--the color was not flattering on a pale blonde and the fit wasn't the best for someone like me who carries a little more weight in the upper middle section than I like to.
I think this dress would be lovely on a tan brunette!
I saw this print in the box and thought it was pretty cool looking, but the Collective Concepts Caspar Maxi Dress was another disappointment. I sent it back.
I don't think busy patterned maxi dresses look great on petite gals like me. It was not flattering at all.
The 41Hawthorn brand seems to work for me. I liked this Carla Crochet Detail Blouse enough to keep it because I thought it was a cute top for any season, but I thought it was especially bright and fun for spring/summer. 
I pinned this Octavia Brooks Crossbody Bag a while back in a more neutral color, so I was surprised to see a pink purse in my box. This design is absolutely perfect for me, so I kept it because I think I'll get enough use out of it and it's a fun pop of color to add to a black dress or more neutral palette outfit.
Overall, I think my fixes are getting better and my stylist, Sarah, is trying her best to send me things I will really love. I have yet to receive a box of five items I totally love, but I hope to someday.

  1. I pegged you for the top and the purse. The pink color is super cute and now I want the same top. It sounds like you're working with the same stylist each time. Hope it keeps getting better. I totally wouldn't have done a maxi either. I think I'm too short for maxi dresses. I might have liked the yellow dress.
