April Stitch Fix Review & Link-Up

April 11, 2016·

Another month, another Stitch Fix review. This was actually one of my favorite fixes… even though (spoiler alert) it was only a 2 out of 5. My stylist, Kimberly J. just really knows my style and knows what kinds of things to send me…

What is Stitch Fix, anyway?

First, let me just say, that if you are new here OR you don’t know what Stitch Fix is, basically, in short, Stitch Fix is a box that you sign up to get (can be however often you want… it is NOT a subscription because you don’t HAVE to receive one every month and there is no contract or anything like that… I get one every month because I WANT to)… you pay a $20 styling fee, fill out a style profile (likes, dislikes, sizing information, etc.), and then a stylist picks out five items he / she thinks you would like and then they send those items to you in a box – this is your “fix.”

Once you receive the items, you try them on, you keep what you like, and you send back (in a pre-paid envelope) what you don’t like. The $20 styling fee that you paid at the beginning goes TOWARDS the cost of the items in your fix. If you keep all five items, you also get a 25% discount.

So, if you keep any items, the $20 is credited… if you don’t, you’re just out $20. That’s it.

Without further ado… my April Stitch Fix review…

Brixon Ivy “Pinson Drape Cardigan” – Size XL – $54

I have seen this cardigan in a few other people’s fixes and I have loved it every time I have seen it. So, needless to say, I was really excited when I saw Kimberly J. included it in my fix. The moment I tried it on, I knew it was win. It is so lightweight and perfect for spring, it’s really soft and comfortable, and the light blush pink accent gives it such a unique, feminine flair.

It makes a great neutral layering piece! I know this is one I am going to wear over and over again… so it was pretty much a no brainer!


31 Bits “Citron Escape Beaded Necklace” – $38 & 31 Bits “Lena Beaded Link Bracelet” – $42

Ethically made in Uganda.

I LOVE 31 Bits. I have been a huge fan of their jewelry for years, so I was SO pumped to see a couple pieces in my fix. The story behind 31 Bits is amazing (I will be sure to share more about them in a future post!), but I love that their pieces are so unique and really show the handmade nature of them.

I loved the necklace and I loved the bracelet, but I knew the necklace was just a piece that I would wear more often. The colors are great for spring!

VERDICT: Necklace was kept. Bracelet was returned.

Pixley “Malan Cargo Jacket” – Size XL – $84

I realllllly wanted to love this coat. The pattern is so fun, I love the style, the fit was pretty spot on… but I just honestly couldn’t justify keeping it when we are about to head into a North Carolina late spring / summer. Maybe at another time of year, but it just wasn’t in the cards for right now. It is super cute though!


Pixley “Siene Blazer” – Size XL – $78

Not going to lie, when I first saw this blazer, I was like, “Ehhhh I don’t think I would like this at all.” And then I forced myself to try it on and I actually really liked it! My only problem was that I couldn’t think of THAT many ways to wear it. And, my biggest thing when adding pieces to my closet is whether or not I can think of a ton of ways to wear it… so needless to say, this particular piece just wasn’t a keep this time.


What do you think? Do you have a favorite piece in this fix? What items would you have kept? Any that I should have kept?
