Haven't heard of Stitch Fix before? Stitch Fix is an innovative styling service that pairs real stylists with online clients, sending you 5 handpicked pieces each Fix that your stylist thinks you will love. You fill out a style profile online, and provide detailed feedback for each piece you are sent, whether you chose to keep it or return it. With each fix, your stylist learns a little bit more about you to tailor-make your fixes to fit your style.

That said, if you choose to sign up for your own Stitch Fix deliveries using the links provided on this site, you will be using my referral code.

I've had Danise style my fixes since February, and I love the styles she picks for me (even though they might not all fit). She is very keen to check the styles I'm pinning on my Stitch Fix Style board and reading my feedback from previous fixes. I like that she challenges my style palette with pieces that I would not necessarily pick for myself. While this month's fix was not as successful as some of the others I've had, I did have a ton of fun and loved the excitement of it!
Onto the pieces that I received in my April Stitch Fix Box
This polka-dot top is totally retro! I've been loving polka dots lately, and who doesn't love a great black and white geometrical pattern? Paired with a fluorescent colored accent and you have a summer ensemble. This top was a little too sheer for me, which you can notice by looking at the pocket. Also, the armholes were huge, and it just felt baggy on the top half because of the large armholes. I hope my stylist sends me more polka dots though!
Diaz Embroidery & Crochet Detail Cotton Top - BRIXON IVY ($74)
This top is light and romantic, perfect for a breezy summer afternoon. I'm always wary when it comes to white clothing though, and especially white clothing that costs almost $75 dollars! I imagine sipping Pinot Grigio and nibbling on cheese and berries on the patio in this top.
For the price, I just couldn't afford this top, so I returned it. And I'm glad I did, because it turns out that my mom has one very similar.
Leilani Statement Necklace - Bay to Baubles ($34)
If I decided to keep either of the crochet detail tops, I would have kept this necklace. I liked the antique gold finish and the subtle bling it brought to those tops, but with my current wardrobe, I prefer either all metal or something with bright colors.
Cheli Striped Maxi Dress - Renee C ($68)
This was the one keeper in the entire box, and of course its another striped piece. I've already worn this dress to a barbecue and it is so comfortable! With my stylist's suggestion, I paired it with the coral cardigan I got in my March fix and the necklace I got in my February fix.
Tavek Crochet Bib Blouse - Fun2Fun ($38)
This top, oh, how I loved this top! The color, the crochet detailing, the fun split back were just some of the things I loved about this top... until I tried it on. My big chest strikes again! The A-line top did not fit over my bust and instead created a uni-boob. Blah, nobody wants to see that. I guess that's why its so important to try every piece on, love it or hate it. Maybe I'll be able to find a similar top that fits, or maybe I'll get one in a future fix!
Even though I only kept one piece this month, it was worth it. With my styling credit, the dress I kept was a little over $50, including tax and it is so versatile, I know I'll be wearing it throughout the summer and into fall. Stay tuned for what next month's box has for me (scheduled to arrive mid-May)!
