You may have noticed I didn’t do a Stitch Fix review in February. I did receive a fix, but I got it right before we left for our Punta Cana vacation. I ended up sending everything back from that fix and didn’t have a chance to get pictures taken so I could blog about it. It was disappointing because I asked for items I could bring on vacation, but didn’t get anything I was hoping for. I’m guessing they just didn’t have warm weather clothing in stock yet. The stylist tried to convince me a few pieces would be good for vacation, but I felt like she was taking winter things and trying to turn them into spring and summer things.
For my March fix, I asked for clothes that would transition from winter to spring well and I asked for some fun, bright colors. I’d say my stylist did well in both of those categories. Ready to see what I got?
Collective Concepts Rilo Button-Up Blouse $68
This blouse was exactly the kind of color I was looking for. After a long, drab winter I wanted some bright colors in my life. It’s also a good piece for transitioning from winter to spring as the sleeves can be worn up or down. Keep!
41 Hawthorn Harriet Chevron Print Detail Dress $64I really didn’t want a dress. I wear dresses a lot in the summer, but not as much in the winter or even spring. When I put this on, though, I really liked it. It’s sleeveless, but I can style it now with a jacket or sweater, tights, and boots and later I can wear it without a jacket and with sandals. After I looked at this photo I realized that it made me look a little wide, so when I wore it the next day, I added a belt so my waist would be more defined. Keep!
Octavia Gweneth Chevron Lace Infinity Scarf $28This is another fun, bright color for spring that I liked. I like how a scarf can elevate a standard grey t-shirt from boring to a cute look. I got the grey t-shirt you see here, by the way, in my very first fix last June. This is a lightweight scarf that I’ll be able to wear all spring and into the summer. It’ll be great for adding a pop of color to my neutral pieces. Keep!
Collective Concepts Lydia Floral Print Key-Hole Blouse
Tops are tricky for me. I usually get size medium because I have longer arms and broad shoulders, but sometimes the looser styles are too big. This blouse is a size medium, but I think it would fit better in a small. What do you think? Exchange? Or return?
Pixley Hadley Moto Jacket $98
I’m torn on this jacket, too! I asked for a spring jacket or coat in a fun color, but this wasn’t what I had in mind. I was thinking of a trench or something similar that I could wear often. This seems less like an everyday outerwear jacket and more like something I’d wear as part of an outfit. That doesn’t mean I don’t like it. I think it’s cute. But I’m not sure I need it.
At first I thought I’d definitely return it, then I considered the “buy all discount” of 25%. If I keep everything, the total cost would be $229.50. If I return just the jacket, the cost would be $208.00. I’d say it’s worth paying the extra $21.50 for the jacket. If I decided to return the key-hole blouse and the jacket, my total would be $140. The difference is $89.50. That makes each item I’m considering returning $44.75 instead of $68.00 and $98.00. Oh, Stitch Fix math!
Can you help me decide on this one, too? Keep? Or return?
This is the first time I’ve posted my review before I’ve checked out. I need to check out today and would love your help in deciding what to keep or return! Should I keep it all and get the 25% discount? Or should I return the blouse and/or jacket? Help!
