Spring Forward: Stitch Fix Review and Gift Card Giveaway!

With an early Easter and spring upon us I am anxiously awaiting the return of warm weather! I'm so glad my Stitch Fix arrived with a few pieces that will be just perfect for the transition to spring. I did a little early spring cleaning and made room for a few new favorites. I was happy to find a few keepers!

In addition to my usual Stitch Fix review, I thought I'd try something new and giveaway a $20 Stitch Fix gift card! More on that later.

First, I want to show you the fabulous pieces from my spring Stitch Fix. I have a feeling you'll be pinning a few! And, there just might be a surprise in the box. Can you guess what's hiding behind the usual tops and jeans?


No, it's not #3. I mean, that is #3, but he didn't come in the box. It's shoes! That fun little Stitch Fix bag contains one lovely pair of shoes! In case you haven't heard, Stitch Fix is now carrying a wide assortment of styles.


They just happened to be one of my favorite shoe styles, ballet flats. For a mom on the go, these are a must-have. I love prints like these with a bit of shimmer to add a hint of glam to basic assembles. I see a lot of other animal prints out there like cheetah and leopard print. The snake print is a nice, unexpected addition. Beige, brown and grey are great neutrals; I suspect they'd go with everything, both dressy and casual. And, they fold up so you can throw them in your bag for a quick shoe change.


Stitch Fix sent me a size 10 where I normally wear a 9.5 so I'm assuming these only come in whole sizes. I have wide feet so 10s often work out for me, and ballet flats are a great choice. Unfortunately, these were too long for me. Bummer! I loved these instantly. Perhaps I'll request a 9 in my next box.

Be sure and head over and update your style profile with your shoe size if you haven't already! And, of course, schedule a Fix and request your favorite shoe styles. If you'd like to request this pair, Stitch Fix calls them Yosi Samra Snake Print Flats, $75.

I can't decide which piece to show you next, I love so many! I have a feeling, this one is going to be a reader favorite, the Skies are Blue Caine Fringe Open Cardigan, $54.


I love this brand! It's always on trend, each piece is well made and true to size, and the prices are just right. I was happy to see this in my box because I've been eyeing it.

I broke out my white jeans and borrowed a minty pastel top and booties from #1 for pictures.

     

This quote came to mind while shooting this Fix. It was crazy windy, with comedic timing given my recent haircut and decision to stop straightening my hair. I'm not quite convinced that all good things are wild and free.



I also tried the cardigan with the 3rd item in my box, the Kut From The Kloth Cai Bootcut Jeans, $88.

     

I can't stop thinking about these jeans! Lately, I feel like Loft jeans are too stretchy and just slip off, and these fit really well overall. But, given I rarely wear boots under jeans (these are #1s), the 33 inch inseam is just too long for me. 

Here's another shot. I love the wash. It's hard to send back a pair of jeans a teenager insists are perfect....


These have a very similar fit to the Dear John Marson Wide Leg Trouser, which I also love, but with an extra inch or 2.

Let's move on, because, well, this. 


I would have kept this, even if I had to use it as a hand towel. I'm a sucker for embroidery, and love wearing navy. I normally hate pink, but it just works here. It's the THML Longoria Embroidery Top, $58.

Here's a close-up of the gorgeous detail. 


It reminds me of the THML Christy Embroidered Top I got in August that didn't quite work out due to fit. This structured short sleeve is so much more flattering on my round shoulders. I'm always happy to find new things to wear with my white jeans, too.

The last item in my box was the one I thought I would like the most, but the fit didn't quite work out.


It's the RD Style Anso Mixed Material Knit Top, $58. I pictured myself wearing it with mint skinnies (next box?) or grey leggings.

But.... the fit was so off on me I decided to show it to you on #1 instead.


Clearly this isn't working on her either. She's almost as tall as I am (5'6") and about the same size. I think this top may work better for petites, it just needs more length in the torso. Well, my wallet will be happy, because if this had fit right I would have kept it for sure.

I'm really excited about my new embroidered top and cardigan! I already ran out and bought a basic white Loft t-shirt to wear with the cardi (Embroidered Vintage Soft Tee).


I have plenty of things that go with it, but I had a $15 Loft birthday coupon burning a hole in my pocket! Tees are on sale for $20 bucks so I picked up 2. They have a gazillion colors online, in petites, too.

  16. Intruiged by those shoes! I know you said they were big but would love more detail - were they comfortable otherwise? Sturdy? I've always been impressed with Stitch Fix's item's quality but never had shoes in a fix.

    1. The shoes were super comfy, and had a lot more support than a similar pair I have. The soles are padded. I also appreciate that they cover the toes completely. Hopefully you'll get a pair of shoes soon!

    2. Excellent news! I tend to stay away from flats as I haven't found any decently priced once that have good support but I think I may just request these in my next fix! Thanks for the extra info :)

  17. How does the support seem in the shoes?

  19. I received that THML embroidered top as well. Sadly, I had to send it back because the band around the bottom was a bit too snug for me. It is beautiful, isn't it?

  37. Those jeans looked great on you. I agree with the last top though. The sheer white hit at such a bad spot. Oh and I was completely surprised by the price of the flats. I'm interested to see what the price points end up being for Stitch Fix shoes.
