March Stitch Fix Review & Link-up

March 28, 2016·

Another month and another Stitch Fix review! Y’all know how much I love Stitch Fix, this is not a secret by now… and I know some think that I always get awesome fixes where almost everything works… and while my stylist, Kimberly J., is amazing and totally knows my style… not every fix is a win. Sometimes I get a “dud” fix, too. Doesn’t make me not love Stitch Fix. 🙂 It just means that that particular fix didn’t really work.

I always take the mindset that if you walk away with at least one item from a fix, it’s a win. And, this fix (spoiler alert), I walked away with one item. So, let’s call it a win!

This was my first fix I received after having Amos, and so honestly, I think a lot of what didn’t work in this fix was just struggling with trying to fit my awkward postpartum body. I’m in that stage where maternity clothes are too bulky and my regular clothes don’t fit yet… so, that’s fun… 🙂

In any event, I love to share what I got in my fixes because some of these items may work for you in your next fix!

I did NOT take photos of myself in the items this time because, again, my body just wasn’t quite ready. 🙂 And that’s okay! I made a human! 🙂

Enjoy my review!

March Stitch Fix Review

Nakamol “Wixon Beaded Layer Cuff” – $44

Ethically manufactured in Thailand by local artisans.

Nakamol "Wixon Beaded Layer Cuff"

I received a Nakamol necklace in my fix last month and I absolutely loved it. I wear it all the time! This cuff is really, truly, seriously beautiful. I love the mixed metal look, I love the beading, and the handmade feel of it is just perfection. I also love the Nakamol brand and all that it is doing to empower and provide opportunity for local artisans in Thailand.

Now, the but… BUT, I actually have a cuff kind of similar to this one already and I just couldn’t justify having another one that similar. So, I opted to not keep it. I am probably going to regret this decision, but oh well. 🙂

Verdict: Return

Octavia “Flo Graphic & Dot Print Oblong Scarf” – $28

Octavia "Flo Graphic & Dot Print Oblong Scarf"

There’s really not a whole lot to this scarf other than the colors are beautiful, it’s long and flowy, AND it’s REALLY lightweight. I looooooooove lightweight scarves, especially for spring and summer. I don’t own any “mint” colored scarves and this one is so beautiful! Plus, the price was totally spot on for it. So, it was a no-brainer to keep it!

Verdict: Keep

Loveappella “Lillac Cross Back Knit Top” – Size XL – $54

Made in the USA

Loveappella "Lillac Cross Back Knit Top" Loveappella "Lillac Cross Back Knit Top"

First, the pros of this shirt: I love the blush pink color and the fabric is CRAZY soft. Almost buttery soft. I also love the Loveappella brand (designed and manufactured in Los Angeles, CA).

The cons: It hugged my post-partum body in a totally unflattering way (which is why I didn’t even photograph me wearing it). I realize that will change, but I couldn’t justify keeping something I didn’t love RIGHT NOW. Also, the “cross back” part of the shirt isn’t really my style… while it’s super cute, it just looked weird on me and hit me really low.

Ultimately, this one was a “NO.”

Verdict: Return

Loveappella “Hendrik Layered 3/4 Sleeve Knit Top” – Size XL – $58

Made in the USA

Loveappella "Hendrik Layered 3/4 Sleeve Knit Top"

I also really wanted to love this top… but the fit was very, very funky on me, personally. Maybe it’s my post-partum body or maybe it’s just the shirt… but it fit very strangely. It was much tighter on me than other Loveappella items I have tried and it also was cut shorter than I would have liked. I think it’s a great neutral piece for someone’s closet… just not mine, unfortunately.

Verdict: Return

Papermoon “Cresson Knit Top” – Size XL – $38

Papermoon "Cresson Knit Top"

This top is actually REALLY cute on the hanger and I think would be REALLY cute on someone else… but on me, it just didn’t fit right. Again, I think a lot of the fit issues in this fix could be a result of my post-partum body… but, it is my current reality… soooooooo… 🙂

The material is a very lightweight knit sweater material and I love the “baseball” style sleeves. The pocket detailing is cute and the navy color is beautiful. I also think the price was GREAT for this top… it just wasn’t a go for me this time.

Verdict: Return

What do you think? Any pieces you loved? Any you think I should have kept? What have you gotten in your fix lately?
