I love surprises, but sometimes I can get a little impatient. For instance, the wait for my monthly Stitch Fix box can make a week seem like two months, especially when I receive the notice that the box is in the mail. It is always worth the wait, in the end!
This month, four of my five items were keepers. I ended up keeping everything, however. Why? Because if you keep all five items, you receive a 25% discount and the discount was greater than the cost of the skirt I did not like. My job is in the middle of the clothing drive, so I will donate it to someone who will appreciate the item more than I do.
The first item I pulled out of April’s box was this adorable polka dot dress from Gilli. The fabric has a bit of texture and the fit is great. It will be easy to dress up for work or down of the weekends.
It was suggested that I pair the Gilli dress with this infinity scarf. While I don’t love that combination, I do love this scarf in its own right. The scarf is made of a lightweight fabric and I think the floral design is beautiful.
The Lila Ryan denim jacket was an item that my stylist had in mind for me last month. Since denim jackets are so versatile, I said to send it along. It was suggested that I wear the jacket with the polka dot dress, but I can actually wear this with a great many items in my wardrobe, including the floral dress from my March Fix, and I anticipate wearing it often. Not only do I love the jacket’s versatility, but I also love that it is slightly cropped and has an updated, modern feel.
It doesn’t come through in the photo, but the royal blue color of this Papermoon top is stunning. The tulip sleeves are a cute, fun addition to an otherwise basic top and it was immediately welcomed into my closet.
I wanted to love the Renee skirt–it is even more striking in-person than it is in this photo. Not only does it has this fun, bold pattern, but it is also textured. Unfortunately, it is a pencil skirt and just does not work with my body shape right now. Unless I can find a long shirt that works with it, the skirt will become a donation item, which is a bummer because it was my favorite item of this month (until I tried it on).
And now the wait for the next box begins… Does anyone else use Stitch Fix? If you don’t, but would like to, click here.
