Spring Date Night Makeup Tutorial

It has been a few months since my last StitchFix, and since I’m in the process of purging my closet and switching it over to spring and summer wear, I thought now was a good time as any to add a few new pieces to the mix.
I’m sure you’re all familiar with this service by now, but in case you aren’t, in a nutshell you pay a $20 styling fee to have five clothing and accessory items sent to your doorstop. You have three days to try on the pieces and decide what you do and do not want; whatever you don’t keep, you simply pack it up in the prepaid envelope and drop it in your local mailbox to return. The $20 styling credit is applied toward any items that you do keep, so I suggest that you always try to purchase at least one item from the box so you aren’t out that money.

If you recall, I was less-than-impressed with my December 2015 Fix, so I was a little skeptical this time around. I had a gift card from Christmas waiting to be used, so I kept my fingers crossed that it didn’t go to waste on pieces that I didn’t absolutely love.

I remembered to request the stylist that I like, Caitlin, and I left her a specific note that I was looking for neutral, spring tops that had sleeves. Well, she sure listened to my requests and nailed this fix.

Liverpool Bongiovi Chambray Top – $54.00
Verdict: Returned It
When I first saw this print in the box, my immediate thought was “hello, hippie-wear.” I was pleasantly surprised at how cute this shirt was on, though. I didn’t find the cut to be very flattering on my figure, which is why I returned it, but I could see it looking super cute with a pair of white skinnies or distressed cutoffs.

Chambrai Ramsdell Button Down Top – $58.00
Verdict: Returned It
There’s not a whole lot to say about this top. It was nice quality and fit great, but I already have a couple chambray shirts in my closet that I couldn’t justify purchasing another. So, back it went.

Loveappella McCally 3/4 Sleeve Raglan Knit Top – $54.00
Verdict: Kept It!
This was the top that I was most excited about, and I was even more thrilled when I put it on. First of all, it’s neutral and has stripes – that pretty much sums up my preferences. Second of all, the material is super soft and comfortable, which makes it perfect for everyday wear. I also am a fan of the cut – it reminds me of an old-school baseball tee.

Market & Spruce Cammy Deep V Neck Ribbed Knit Top – $44.00
Verdict: Kept It!
I live in tees, so I’m always happy to add another one to my collection. I love the ribbed material of this top and just like the striped top, I’m a fan of how this top is cut on the bottom (sorry, it’s hard to tell since I have my hand in my pocket). The high slits on either side, which creates a “bib”-like style, seems flattering on my figure, and it keeps the shirt from appearing too generic. Pretty sure I’ll be living in this come springtime.

Stitch Fix Review March 2016

Gentle Fawn Tressie Shirt Dress – $88.00
Verdict: Returned It
This is a dress and absolutely should not be worn with jeans, but I didn’t want to horrify all of you with my pale winter legs. I adored the print of this dress – it was girly and a bit bohemian, but I wasn’t sure how much wear I would get out of it. Plus, the arm openings were a tad big, which caused my bra to hang out. A bandeau would easily remedy that problem, but I just didn’t want to go through the hassle.

Stitch Fix Review March 2016

Overall, my stylist did a great job – the fact that I kept two of the five items made this my most successful StitchFix yet!

  • Love both the tops you kept, so classic and timeless! And loving that dress even though you returned it. It’s perfect for summer and spring! <3, Pamela Sequins & Sea Breezes

    • I agree with you! If it would’ve been just a little smaller, I think I could’ve made it work. I loved the print!

  • Owen Davis

    Love all of these! I did it once and have been wanting to try again but I am so picky about how stuff fits I find it easier to just go to stores!

    • I know, it’s definitely a gamble, but I just think it’s so fun getting clothes delivered to your door!

  • Love that striped top on you!! That dress is also really cute but boo to the bra issue. That happens to be a lot. :-/ I also think that the shape of the striped shirt and the t-shirt are very flattering on you. πŸ™‚

    • Thanks, lady! I appreciate that since because of your job you know what you’re talking about, lol. πŸ™‚

  • Soooo I love your hair like that! And loving the tops that you kept!

  • Debra Stachelski

    Overall cute things, but I like what you chose to keep! Too bad the dress was a little big, I thought it looked cute on you. Love your hair like that, too!

  • You can never go wrong with a good tee – love the length of that one! And bummer that the dress didn’t work out, it’s adorable for spring!

  • Christina Sotherden

    I love the striped shirt you kept – stripes & neutrals you can never go wrong with. I love the dress too but I’m with you – I hate when the arms scoop too low, it’s always the worst!

  • Love the two knit tops you kept, perfect for Spring!! I like the print on the dress but think you made the right decision on returning that one!

    • Thanks, lady! I was so torn about the dress because I loved the print, but why keep something when the fit is off?

  • Love the striped top! That’s perfect. Too bad about that dress – I love the print!

  • Loving the tops you kept, especially the striped one. Perfect for spring <3

  • LOL @ hippie-wear! I love the print of the top, but can see what you mean about the cut being kind of blah. You can tell from the picture how soft that stripe shirt is– it looks sooo nice! I also love the dress (shirt?), but you’re so good about not keeping things if you know you probably won’t wear them much!

    • Haha, I really didn’t know how else to explain my thoughts about that top – not that I mind a little hippie-wear. I definitely went through a flower child phase back in the day. πŸ™‚ The striped top is so soft and comfortable!

  • I love longer length tees and the ones you kept looked super comfortable!

  • The two tees you kept are so multi functional and they look incredibly soft!

  • I like the tops you kept! I’m always skeptical about paying too much for a basic tee, but the more expensive ones are always the softest and last the longest!

    • I agree with you! If I didn’t have a gift card, I probably would’ve only kept one of the tops, but I loved them both so much!

  • Biana Perez

    I love the two pieces that you ended up keeping and even though you didn’t keep the dress it looked so pretty on you! xo, Biana –BlovedBoston

  • I am such a fan of light grey heather fabrics – I think they’re so flattering with light hair and eyes! I was ready to do the spring switch over this weekend but now with the snow storm I’m going to have to hold off a bit longer πŸ™ The print on that dress is so pretty, it’s too bad the fit was off!

    • I know, I was bummed about the dress, too for that same reason. It’s starting to warm up a bit here, but I still don’t think we’re quite there. In the meantime, I’m purging and getting rid of stuff in my closet to make room for the spring stuff!

  • Love these!! The first and last ones are my favorite πŸ™‚

  • I love the three quarter length shirt that you received! It reminds me of a baseball shirt too, and I love the stripes! Hooray for getting so many great pieces in your box this month!
