April Stitch Fix Review

Updated: Sep 7, 2019


This is my second box from Stitch Fix, and it was so much fun to try on! You can read about my very first Fix here. I included my request for as many ethical and made-in-the-USA brands as possible, and my stylist did note that is an extra challenge, and not always available due to their constantly-changing inventory. I didn't request any specific styles or pieces for this box just to see what my stylist would find. So here's the run down on what I got, what I kept, and what I thought.


{Stitch Fix Basics: Stitch Fix is a style box of 5 items chosen for you by a stylist and delivered to your door! A style survey tells your stylist about your style, size, and price point preferences. The stylist fee is $20, which also includes shipping and return shipping, and is credited toward any items you keep from your Fix! You can get Fixes every few weeks, monthly, every other month, or every 3 months. You can share links to your Instagram and/or Pinterest board to give your stylist ideas of what you like. You can also leave a note for your stylist about what types of things you might like to see in your next Fix. If you want to try it out, this link will get you $25 off any items you keep from your first box!}


Market & Spruce, Kaye Embroidered Dress, $78, returned

This dress was pretty, and I loved the floral border-print skirt, but I didn't like the fit or look of the bodice or sleeves on me.


Madewell, Cotton Pocket Cardigan, $128, returned

Okay, I LOVED this lacy cotton cardigan, and probably would have worn it a ton, because I love and wear cardigans and don't have one anything like this. But. The care instructions were "reshape and lay flat to dry," which is time consuming and not something I want to do right now. I typically will wear cardigans multiple times (like, a lot) between washings, but now that I'm a mom, sometimes that doesn't happen (cue baby spit up, boogers, and sticky fingers). For a lower price, I might have risked throwing it in the dryer, but not for $128. So it went back, but I'm still a little sad about it.


Laila Jayde, Kaylinda Dolman Sleeve Knit Top, $58, returned

This top was cute and different from anything in my closet, but it just wasn't love. I think it was something about the print across the shoulders and arms.


Just Black, Addison Skinny Jean, $88, returned and Kaileigh, Ashlynn Mixed Material Top, $42, kept!

Both these pieces are made in the USA, which I fit the values I want to include in my wardrobe choices, so that was a win! I liked the color of these jeans, but they were just too tight and too low rise for me to wear. The top, on the other hand, was love at first sight, and I'm so glad it worked out! I love the mixed print and fabric (The stripe is a knit and the floral is woven.). It's super light weight and will need a tank underneath. I can see wearing this a lot this spring and summer, maybe with black jeans for now and denim shorts once it warms up more!


Cosabella Pajama Set, add-on, $78, kept!

Yep, I loved my pajamas from last month so much I ordered another set in this burgundy color! They will be replacing some pajamas so old that the elastic is wearing through the band, and I expect to wear these just as long. (In addition to the 5 items your stylist picks out, you can also choose pajamas and underthings to add to your Fix.)


Overall impressions: I liked about half of the styles in this Fix, which I think is pretty good for my second one. I was definitely happy to see a couple made-in-the-USA brands. It took me a while to get this post up, so my next fix will be here soon, and I'm looking forward to it!

What do you think of these styles? Did I make the right choices?
