I’ve changed the frequency of my Stitch Fix boxes to be quarterly or so, to be timed for seasons. It’s one of the great things about Stitch Fix – besides having your stylist put together clothes for you, you get to pick what you want, and you decide when you want it. Here’s my Spring Stitch Fix Box Review for the box February 2017.
If you haven’t heard of Stitch Fix before, Stitch Fix is a styling subscription service personalized for you. You go online and they ask you questions about your preferences in style and price points. You can put together a Pinterest board of outfit inspirations, and you can also include notes before the box is put together on what you would like. Then, based on all that, a stylist will pick out 5 pieces to ship to you that are mailed to your home for your consideration. You choose what you want to keep, and give feedback on why you liked or are returning the pieces you didn’t like so they can better improve knowing your style.
As you can see from this box, my stylist fulfilled my ask of looking for more tops that I can wear over leggings since I’ve recently become addicted to them rather then putting on jeans or pants, as well as adding some pops of color for spring.
I am not sponsored or paid in anyway to share this box:I just really enjoy how the service provides me great clothing statement pieces that I always get compliments on and are unique instead of what everyone can find at the same stores locally.
Rune Porter Leggings
I have to admit, the Rune Porter Leggings looked good on my butt. But, I already have several pairs of black leggings, and couldn’t rationalize having yet another. So I returned these. But, they were great in that they were thick enough to hide any underwear lines and had some up and lift. Since I tend to wear tunics that cover my butt though, that magic wouldn’t be appreciated by anyone anyway, but could be for those of you who might wear shorter tops with your leggings.
Alice Blue Kameron Embroidery Detail Tunic
The Alice Blue Kameron Embroidery Detail Tunic was too snug by my butt so based on the fit alone, I was sending it back. I also tend to if there are details to like it more on my upper body then my lower body as I don’t like drawing attention to my midsection, so that was another strike against it. I definitely did like the ideas of styling the tunic, but the third strike for this was when I saw it was already quite wrinkled when I removed it from the box. I am always thinking about how much care I need to have for a garment – if I have to be steaming or ironing it, that’s extra work I usually don’t want to do.
Market & Spruce Barty Henley Tunic
The Market & Spruce Barty Henley Tunic is this gorgeous jewel color that the photos just don’t do justice to and I think is very on trend this season since magentas and pinks are coming back. I also love these type of shirts that I can wear as long sleeves but also have a clasp so I can roll it up to turn them into 3/4 shorter sleeves. The buttons are pretty and I like how they are along the front and by the end of the sleeves (whether styling the sleeves long or short). I can unbutton this shirt in the front a bit to show a tank top too. I kept this shirt.
Crescent Amparo Tie Neck Tunic
This Crescent Amparo Tie Neck Tunic is a great length for leggings, I love the pattern and that’s it’s flowy and has the little edge detail along the bottom and sleeves. It’s great for layering but also lightweight that I could pull it off in early summer too. I kept this piece.
Gilli Ryland Maxi Dress
This Gilli Ryland Maxi Dress gave me a little pause because it’s long (curse being 5’2″!) and would probably require me wearing heels. But, I love how easy it is and the balance of the more fitted top with a loose skirt that makes me feel a bit princessy. The fact that the pattern is unique but feels timeless also was in its favor. Usually with these wrap tops and my smaller chest, I am trying to pin or wear tank tops underneath to avoid overexposure of skin, but not with this top- it’s stretchy and stays flat against me instead of gapping. Win! I kept this piece.
Where do you like to get your clothes from? Are there any certain fashion trends that you love or are looking forward to this year? I’m curious to see if shirts with feminist sayings printed on them are going to take off and what the sayings will be, and if I can find more than one outfit to use my black corset belt…
