Dear Stitch Fix ladies how have you been since last month? I sure missed chatting with you.

My life has been fast-paced as usual, and I feel like once again a month has gone by with a blink of an eye. Today, after a long, and fun day of me time ( finally got a facial after a really long time), blog work ( took more pictures for this review), kids activities, puppy playdate, my son’s school auction, and writing this post, I feel rather exhausted but so excited. Why? Because this is my first Stitch Fix that includes accessories, and I am thrilled to finally start showing you some examples of what they carry. Cuteness alert- Stitch Fix does amazing on the accessories department too!

STITCH FIX REVIEW - MARCH 2015
STITCH FIX REVIEW – MARCH 2015

I am not entirely sure why I chose to receive only clothing items until fix #22 haha. I think it was my perception of having a bit too many accessories at home. ( which is completely true btw) In any way, I am so happy with my decision of asking my dear stylist Ishara for a bag & jewelry this time around, and I am not sure whether I’ll ever look back, & revert to my old ways of just wanting clothes.

Are you new to TheBoxQueen? If so, a warm welcome from me, and a virtual hug. <3  You may want to start your Stitch Fix reading from my Stitch Fix reviews section. That place is seriously packed with info on everything Stitch Fix.

You can find how this fun personal styling service works, see all the pieces sent to me styled in outfits, (along with my style tips) and even get my tips on how to get your best fix. I even link to Stitch Fix items I find elsewhere (if I can)  in case you can’t get your request from SF, and can’t live without a certain item you see here. I am on my 22nd Stitch Fix ladies, I’ve got you covered. 🙂

Let’s start the fun ladies. What do you think? You can find my outfit details under photos. I tried to find the exact matches, or linked to super similar styles. I am also sharing why I chose to keep or send each piece.

In this Stitch Fix, I got three clothing pieces, and two accessory items. This pullover sweater was the first one out of my box. Stitch Fix provides these nifty styling cards for each piece they send. You can even collect them in albums to give you ideas for future outfits. They show options for day & night looks.

Mystree Aldora Pullover Sweater ($58) & Romolo Harriot Floral Cluster Necklace ($42)I

Style Tip: I loved how Stitch Fix styled the white knit over jeans. I added my own twist by pairing mine over ripped jeans with a faint rose pattern, and used printed pumps instead of booties. Even if you avoided destroyed jeans until now, I invite you to give them a try. They look great on all body shapes, add an instant modernness to any simple look, and I believe they are ageless.

You just need to find the one that works with your lifestyle. Give them a try! If you want to go for a more put together look, pair them with pumps like I did. It’s all in how you style the jeans. The jeans I link to in solid blue are a great starter piece, at an amazing price point. I just can’t imagine my closet without my beloved ripped jeans. 🙂

STITCH FIX REVIEW – MARCH 2015

I love the light, airy feel of this knit top.

Style Tip2: Sometimes when I like the cut, fabric or feel of boyfriend jeans, but want a closer fit, I go one size down. That’s what I did with the Joey boyfriend jeans here. I could go both sizes, and chose the smaller one. I love the resulting fit that’s between skinny jeans, and straight cut.

Stitch Fix also sent me the Floral Cluster Necklace. I thought the blue tones in the middle of the petals paired really nice with this white/blue outfit.

STATUS:

Aldora Pullover Sweater – KEPT

This sweater is right up my style alley. It’s the perfect piece to add casualness to many different looks. I plan to continue wearing it with my jeans. I am also thinking of adding this top over skater, and pencil skirts to create a contrast of styles. I couldn’t let the sweater go.

 Harriot Floral Cluster Necklace – SENT BACK 

If you are just building your statement necklace collection, I think this necklace is a great starter. As someone who has too many statement necklaces in her jewelry box, especially in floral shapes, I thought I probably didn’t need another similar item. Also the $42 price tag was a tad steep for this piece in my opinion.

STITCH FIX REVIEW - MARCH 2015
STITCH FIX REVIEW – MARCH 2015

I think how Stitch Fix styled this pencil skirt, in the prettiest of yellow hues, was right on point. How adorable is the striped top, and flats look for day, and the scalloped top, & heels for night ?

STITCH FIX REVIEW - MARCH 2015
STITCH FIX REVIEW – MARCH 2015

Brixon Ivy Sabina Textured Pencil Skirt ($58) and Urban Expressions Ayana Studded Envelope Clutch ($38)

In box #22, Stitch Fix , along with the pretty textured skirt, sent me the Urban Expressions studded turquoise bag that double as a clutch, & shoulder bag with the included chain. I thought colors of these two pieces really complimented each other.

The floral tank top is one of my new purchases. I actually bought this tank in three solid colors as well. It has a really nice cut. The tank is lovely on it’s own, but super functional to use under open cardigans, blazers, and see through tops.

STITCH FIX REVIEW – MARCH 2015

The pattern on the skirt is subtle in person, however looks special when worn in an outfit. I love that although there is a pattern on the skirt, it is still very easy to pattern mix with it.

STITCH FIX REVIEW - MARCH 2015
STITCH FIX REVIEW – MARCH 2015

Style Tip: Pattern mixing can give new life to the pieces in your closet, and let you multi-task them in fresh looks. To strike a balance, make sure one of the prints is more subtle, while the other is more prominent. Add some fun accessories. Don’t forget to mix in some neutral anchoring pieces into your ensemble, like my beige shoes, and belt. They’ll bring the whole outfit together.

STATUS: 

Textured Pencil Skirt – SENT BACK

It was SUPER hard to send back this pencil skirt. I was really fond of the soft yellow color, and the texture on it. You know I made the decision to only keep items that I can wear frequently. We are still in fall mode here ( I know it’s almost spring but the weather feels like fall, not quite winter, and not quite warm), and I am saving my lighter weather picks to next months.

Studded Clutch – SENT BACK 

This clutch is the best size for easy use, and I love that you can double it as a shoulder bag. You may know, I have quite a number of clutches. Otherwise this was an easy pick. <3

The fifth, and final piece of my Stitch Fix was the Market & Spruce open cardigan. As I would have myself, they styled it with jeans, and over a casual dress.

STITCH FIX REVIEW - MARCH 2015
STITCH FIX REVIEW – MARCH 2015

Market & Spruce Quito Open Drape Cardigan ($68)

This striped/chevron print open cardigan, and it’s colors are really pretty. This cardigan technically had a lot of potential. It’s no secret I like open cardigans. (See the one I kept from my February Fix) The fit on this one was a bit off on my body though. I felt it just didn’t lay right. I had to arrange it to stay as I like.

STATUS – SENT BACK

Part due to the fact that I just recently kept another open front cardigan, part because of the fit problems, I sent back this piece. It’s cute though, and may look different on your body. Worth trying.

Are you considering treating yourself to a box of pretties from Stitch Fix? As a girl on her SF #22, I obviously say go for it. LOL. Seriously though, you need to try this service at least once.  You need to experience the excitement of anticipating which pieces will be sent to you, play dress-up mixing & matching with your own clothes, and just enjoy being a girl. See for yourself if Stitch Fix is for you. <3

    I’ve been waiting for this review since you posted you got accessories this month on TheBoxQueen Facebook. You got really cute stuff. As usual I love your styling tips. I think you kept a great item. I have my eye on the clutch too tough. The roiled jeans are awesome too. Great job on the review Elif!

    • Theboxqueen

      Thanks for the kind words Sophia; so very happy you liked reading the review. Aren’t the accessories adorable? I think I am going to continue asking for them so stay tuned to see many more. 🙂 You should definitely try those jeans- cool, and great value. Enjoy your Tuesday! XOXO, Elif

  • Tulay Ban

    Best choice! Beautiful transitional sweater. I love both the fit and the pattern. And those destroyed jeans!!!

    • Theboxqueen

      Yes completely transitional. I think for our weather here it is the perfect choice. The destroyed jeans are one of my best finds lately. 🙂 Happy Tuesday. XOXO, Elif

  • Cheryl

    I’m so glad you gave the accessories a try! SF carries beautiful scarves as well. I love the sweater you chose to keep- perfect for a variety of looks. And the Nordstrom tank! I’ve been looking for cute tanks to wear for layering, so I will definitely check them out. 🙂

    • Theboxqueen

      Yayyy for SF accessories 🙂 I remembered you telling me they carry really nice accessories and I couldn’t stay away any longer LOL. That Nordstrom tank rocks! I have it in solid colors & print,and they get so much use, pretty good priced too. Have a lovely Tuesday sweet lady! XOXO, Elif

  • Overall, I think you got a great fix. I agree with you on sending the cardigan and necklace back, but I would have kept that skirt…it’s gorgeous and you don’t see that brocade, raised texture too often. I really like the bag too!

    • Theboxqueen

      I would have kept the clutch if I didn’t have so many similar ones. The skirt was a fab piece too. Couldn’t have gone wrong with either I feel like. You need to ask for the skirt if you are doing SF before they sell out. Hope you have the best Tuesday dear. XOXO, Elif

      • Yes, I thought about asking for the skirt since I’m expecting my next Fix next week, but I decided not to because I like to be surprised.

        • Theboxqueen

          Have you received your fix Amy? Did you get any keepers? 🙂 Understand the love of the surprise element. The surprise factor is the fun part for me too.

          • I received my fix on Saturday and it was my worst fix ever. I only kept two items (I usually keep everything). I will be doing a post about it on Wednesday.

  • You got a great box this month! I love that white sweater! You styled it perfectly with those distressed jeans! The pencil skirt is gorgeous but I understand why you sent it back!

    • Theboxqueen

      Love the sweater but the jeans make it even more special I think. Thanks Jill. 🙂 Hope your week has been great so far! XOXO, Elif

  • Great box, I love that yellow skirt, it would have been hard for me to send that back too, but you picked the best!

    • Theboxqueen

      I am very happy with my decision. Already worn the knit top again this time over a dress. The yellow skirt was fab too though. Have a great Tuesday <3 XOXO, Elif

  • Janet Little

    Oh that skirt was stunning. I also like the cardigan colors on you.

    • Theboxqueen

      I kinda wish I kept the skirt too- looking back I like it even more. 🙂 Thanks for saying hi Janet! 🙂 XOXO, Elif

  • ADA

    Another fantastic review and 3 great and Spring-forward outfits. I love, love the pops of Floral on the first 2 Outfits. Both pairs of pumps are gorgeous. The 2nd look is my favorite. Pairing that jacquard yellow skirt with the wide belt and floral tank was genius!

    P.S. Welcome by and link-up with me today, Thanks. =)

    • Theboxqueen

      I am really looking forward to spring, and of course spring outfits. 🙂 Loved putting together warmer weather looks. Happy you liked my dear! I can’t wait to wear a similar outfit to the pencil skirt one in a couple months. Hope you have the loveliest Wednesday. Thanks for bringing some sunshine over here. 🙂
      XOXO, Elif

  • Sibel Gultekin

    I love the white sweater and the yellow skirt. The white sweater is the perfect piece to add to one’s spring collection, you can also wear similar clothes in the fall with a jacket. When it comes to the yellow skirt I would have said yes; it is the perfect color that brightens your day and is very elegant yet casual. Great fix! (Also, I have to say the bag and jewelry were quite an adventure)

    • Theboxqueen

      Yes and yes! Totally agree. I thought the white knit would be so versatile for now, spring, and fall. It’ll take me through a couple seasons. 🙂 I hear what you say regarding the yellow skirt. It’s gorgeous. Hopefully I’ll get something similar in one of my spring SF’s. Thanks for saying hi my dear!! XOXO, Elif

  • You look always perfect!

    Stunning!

    Kiss,

      Hi Maggie! Thanks so much for the sweet words. 🙂 XOXO, Elif

  • What a fun Fix! I love that yellow skirt.

    • Theboxqueen

      It was super fun, and I was so happy that I asked for accessories as well.The yellow skirt was gorgeous. Hope I receive smt. similar in spring. Thanks for stopping by! XOXO, Elif

  • I like the light spring colours. I can’t wait to start getting warmer here as well 🙂
    That pencil skirt in lemony shade is my favourite piece from this post.

    • Theboxqueen

      Ahh Lu, all these comments are almost making me wish I kept the skirt. It was indeed gorgeous. Hope when I am full on spring shopping mode ( which already started bit by bit) they send me a similar piece. Yes for warmer weather please. 🙂 XOXO, Elif

  • jess

    I really like the clothes and accessories you chose. I dothe opposite with jeans, i go up a size to make them into boyfriend !:-) Great idea too. Love the all white with the floralshoes and pretty necklace. Love the yellow print skirt, a favorite color for spring, and the bag is really pretty , a blue very much in season. You look great in all!

    from the link up,

    please stop by, jess xx

      I love hearing about all the different ways we make clothing our own. Going up a size to make jeans into boyfriend jeans sounds fun & interesting too. 🙂 Happy to hear you liked the outfits Jess. The white sweater I kept is so very versatile. I wore it with yellow jeans and mary janes just today. Thanks lovely lady! XOXO, Elif

  • The white outfit with the colorful shoes = such a cute outfit! Also really love Urban Expressions clutches (vegan!) and the pencil skirt. Adorable outfits 🙂 Found you via SITS and hope you’re enjoying your weekend!

    • Theboxqueen

      Charlotte welcome to TheBoxQueen! Urban Expression vegan clutches really are great. I have a couple, and use them all the time! Thanks for saying hi! Have a fab new week. XOXO, Elif

  • Tracey at Salty Sweet Life

    I really enjoyed your post! I just got my first fix last weekend and I was super excited for it! I recently purged my closet big time and since I hate shopping Stitch Fix seemed like a great way to get some pieces that I really loved. I love that yellow skirt!

    • Theboxqueen

      Welcome to TheBoxQueen Tracey! So happy to know you enjoyed the post. 🙂 Stitch Fix is perfect for refreshing a closet, and make it more up to date; especially after a good purge. 🙂 Which SF pieces have you kept that are your favorites? I find a favorite in each my fixes. This month it is the white sweater. XOXO, Elif

      • Tracey at Salty Sweet Life

        I kept 3 pieces from my fix. A pair of dark wash skinny jeans that fit perfectly (trust me that is hard to find!), the “Colibri” arrow print blouse, and a striped draped front cardigan. I sent back a maxi dress that I really wanted to like, but ultimately didn’t like the fit of and a necklace. The necklace was really cute, but a little pricey in my opinion for costume jewelry.

  • md kennedy

    I love this post – so much inspiration! And,that skirt is to die for.

    • Theboxqueen

      Yayyy for the post being inspirational, and yes the skirt was so pretty!! Thanks for saying hi! <3 XOXO, Elif

  • Stefanie Resciniti

    I love that yellow skirt! Great pairing.

      Welcome to TheBoxQueen Stefanie 🙂 The yellow skirt was really cute. Happy you like the pairing. <3 XOXO, Elif

  • Jessica Robertson

    I love how you paired the yellow skirt!!! Never would have thought of that!
