Spring has officially arrived in Chicagoland and I am thrilled to finally be able to switch over my wardrobe to warm-weather clothes. It’s skirt and dress season for me, so when my April Stitch Fix arrived with both, I knew it was going to be a great one!
I LOVE the Kamile Jersey Ruched Detail Dress. I love the color, the cut…everything. It’s comfortable and light and fits me perfectly. This dress would be fine for my day to day routine, or for a special dinner out.
Before receiving a pencil skirt in my fix, I wouldn’t have said I could pull one off. I’m curvy and short, and have never thought that either of those could work for pencil skirts. I received the Christiana Textured Polka Dot Pencil Skirt and was so bummed because I fell in love with the color and polka dots and knew that I was going to be sad that it didn’t work out. I *always* try on every piece that I receive, though, because you never know. And this time I was really excited to see that it worked! It’s a different shape than I’ve worn before, but I love it. The fabric is stretchy and comfortable and classy. I’m so tickled that my stylist had me try something totally new because I never would have tried a pencil skirt otherwise.
I love Emer pants. I really do. They’re so comfortable and I love how they look. I received the Emer High Waisted Cropped Trouser in petite, and while I still love the fit and it’s still super comfortable, in this case I’m sending them back. I have so many black pants (mostly from Stitch Fix!) and I just don’t need another pair. If they had been a color or in a print, I would have kept them. I’m definitely making a request for next month.
I had seen the Alessia Skirt on the Stitch Fix blog and fell in love with it. I had made a request for it last month, but it wasn’t available. My stylist found it for me for this month, though, and I was so excited to try it on.
This skirt is a dream! Oh my word. It’s everything I hoped it would be. Classic, but with that funky twist that I love. It could be casual or dressy. It’s both long and short because of the mesh overlay.
My fifth item was the Martin Mini Layered Metal Cuff. It’s dainty with a bit of edge and is adjustable. I love seeing it on my wrist, and it goes with every item I received this month!
My April Stitch Fix was a big success. I returned the pants, but only because of the color. My stylist not only worked to find a previous request for me, she looked through my Pinterest boards again for inspiration. Everything I received was a direct result of requests and research. If you see something you’d like to try, make sure you communicate with your stylist via your profile where it gives you the option.
