Hey Y’all, Good to see you! I’m glad you stopped back by to see my latest Stitch Fix box for April 2016. First, give me a shoutout where you came from — Pinterest, Instagram, Facebook? How did you find me? I have an entire Pinterest Board devoted to Stitch Fix Reviews so check that and my Style Board out. While you’re at it, create your own style board and make sure to add the link to your StitchFix Profile so that your picks line up with your style.
If you are new here, you can see my first & second & third box reveal here.

Now you know I love getting packages delivered to my door, but do you know how I get great picks? I’ll give you a few tips for getting the best fixes.
HOW TO GET YOUR BEST FIX
1) Keep your style profile up to date. Stitch Fix is always adding new questions to the style profile. Be sure to look through your profile every few months to answer any new style questions. Also, as you find your style, update your choices. It is very specific down to colors and patterns you like and dislike. Use that to your advantage.
2) Write a note to your stylist each time you schedule a Fix. Do you have an event coming up? Let your stylist know about it so she can find you something special. In my first two fixes I requested pants. And did my stylist ever deliver! I got two amazing pair of pants that fit perfect and looked awesome! I also put a reminder – like “I’m allergic to wool, send summer printed tops that hide my “fat mom arms”, make sure the length is modest, I love florals, pencil skirts are my favorite.”
3) Leave feedback when you checkout. The more detail the better! If the sleeves on that shirt were too small, or if you weren’t crazy about the color but loved the pattern, put it in the feedback. I try and hit on these points in each feedback- weight of fabric (light, too heavy), fit (too tight, shapeless), length (too short, perfect length for long legs), color/pattern preference (whether I liked the design, great pattern, too plain, more embellishments) and lastly the price point (was it within a decent price point and is it worth it for the item). These specific things will give your stylist something concrete to work with so that your fixes will continue to meet your needs.
4) Link to a Pinterest style board and keep it updated! This is the absolute best way to really let your stylist know what looks you want to emulate. You can find some great pins to add to your Board by following the StitchFix seasonal board (see end of this post for a preview of the Board).
5) Try on each piece. Even if you aren’t sure if you like it and even if you don’t think you like a piece, TRY IT ON. You may find that you love the cut or fabric or fit or pattern. It will also give you a feel of the piece so that you can leave specific feedback. Take it one step further and enlist the help of a friend. What does your bestie think? Does she love a piece because it looks great on you.
6) Use the App. Always on the go? Try on the pieces, snap a photo of yourself and when you have a few minute, update the feedback on the mobile app. It is my saving grace. I am horrible about following through and getting around to things, so being able to instantly try on, look at the fit, feel the clothing, and leave feedback all before the excitement wears off is helpful.
April 2016 Stitch Fix ReVEAL
Are you ready to see my April 2016 Stitch Fix reveal? It arrived on my dourest three days early, eek! I was so excited to see the box. It had a mix of soft pink and blue items- tops and dresses just like requested. My stylist, Mary, has been with me for the last couple of outfits and she definitely reads my feedback and requests and delivers every time! Ready to see what I got?!?
PIXLEY Stevie Jersey Dress $74
The first item in the box was this amazing Jersey dress from Pixley. How sweet is this dress? It is a Pixley, which I have come to find is one of my favorite brands. The fabric is always soft, flexible, slightly stretchy and lightweight.
Here’s an up close of the print.
The dress has amazing shape to it. It gives you an hourglass shape regardless of body type. It’s really quite amazing. I love that the light pink contrasts the black. It looks perfect paired with nude and black pumps. I know I will be wearing this one a lot. Thanks Stitch Fix!
MARGARET M Christiana Textured Pencil Skirt $78
Up next, a navy pencil skirt from Margaret M. By now, y’all know I love pencil skirts. Like really love them, and this is no exception. The pencil skirt is my go to spring/summer outfit. I can grab a tee and head out the door. I don’t have to worry about the wind picking up my skirt (like with dresses). I know you know what I’m talking about.
Holy booty, this skirt gives me a great look! Did you see my post about how to wear bold pencil skirts? This guy is navy, textured with a diamond pattern, and skinny. It is fitted, but not too tight. It falls at the knee and has a small slit in the back. It looks amazing with a button down or just a tee. It’s the perfect addition to my summer & spring collection. It looks cute with the Skies are Blue blouse that came in this Fix too!
ELAINE Ikat knit Shirt $44
I love ikat print and this knit top is no exception. I am wearing it all day today! To say this fabric is soft is an understatement. It’s buttery soft. It’s amazing. It’s a coral and sky blue pattern with a cute little pocket on the left. It has a bib cut, longer in the front and back and shorter on the sides- looks great with leggings. Today, I’ll be wearing it with cuffed skinny jeans and a pair of Jack Rogers sandals. But, it looks cute untucked with a pencil skirt too or a jean jacket!
