March Stitch Fix

Another month, another box! My March Stitch Fix box is here! This month around I asked my stylist to send me items that can transition from spring to summer. I also told her that I'm a huge fan of retro/vintage and asked her to incorporate it into the box. I also let her know that I'm really into wearing skirts right now.

So how does Stitch Fix work?

Start by filling out your style profile. You will complete questions on sizing, pricing, preferences, colors, etc. You can also write notes about likes and dislikes. Make sure to link your fashion board on Pinterest so your stylist can see what you like. This really helps! The notes to your stylist can really help determine what you get in your box. Take the time to write your stylist a note! I feel that's one of the most important things to getting the items you really want to see in your fixes.

Next, order your first fix! You will be charged a $20.00 styling fee however, if you keep any item [one or more] you will be credited back the $20.00 towards that purchase. I always recommend keeping at least one item or you are essentially giving away $20.00 and getting nothing in return. You will receive 5 items (made up of clothing, jewelry, and handbags). I personally never want jewelry in my fix so I just always let my stylist know! If you refer a friend you get credit so your styling fee could potentially be free.

When your box arrives decide what you want to keep and what you want to send back (in the pre-paid postage envelope)! You have 3 business days  from receiving your fix to decide so use this time to try everything on and see what works best for you. Go out of your comfort zone!
This is what makes Stitch Fix fun! It's like being a celebrity and getting clothing sent to you! I've chosen to receive monthly fixes but remember it is in no way a subscription service and you are able to decide when you want another fix, whether that be in 6 months or 2 years from your first fix! As always, if you have any questions feel free to leave them in the comments section below. To save some cash on future fixes they offer an awesome referral package, if you use my referral link I'll get to bypass the styling fee at least once!

Let's get started! Remember - If you see anything that you like below, feel free to pin it and/or ask your stylist in the notes section of your next fix for something similar! 

1. London Times. Nancee Dress. Size 6 Petite

I hated this dress in the box. When I pulled it out I thought the color was way too bright. Now that I've tried it on I think it looks really nice. The dress has a lot of detail but for me the top is just a little too big. I also don't think I would wear it more than once so this is going back for me.

2. Papermoon. Harselle Dolman Knit Top. Small.

It's casual, it's light and I really like it. This is a keeper for me! It's my style and I know I will get a lot of wear out of it.

3. Market & Spruce. Jetson V-Neck Blouse.

Hated it. Would never wear this. It's not my style. I don't like showing my arms and it's not my color. It's a return for me.

4. Pixley. Mori Henley Top. Small.

Hated it. Didn't even really want to try on. It's a return for me. I don't like the pattern. I hate that it had such a deep v neck and I hate that it's sleeveless.

5. Margaret M. Christiana Pencil Skirt. Medium Petite.

I love this skirt. It's a little shorter than I'd normally wear for a pencil skirt but I really like it. I can't decide.

Now... what items would you keep or send back?

Such a bummer about those two sleeveless tops! I really like the papermoon tee though. I have several papermoon items and love them! So soft.

I love the first two items a lot! Sorry to hear the dress doesn't fit you right - I think it's adorable!

I love the dolman top! It's totally something that I would wear. :)
