Finally it happened. I opened my Stitch Fix box, and with a squeal, under just 5 seconds I told myself I would definitely keep one of the items. See I usually try each piece I get with my own clothes/ accessories, and take my time. I didn’t have to with this piece as I’ve been swooning over it for a while. So very excited it’s staying with me. The rest of the box was super cute too, and I may as well start telling you about it all from the beginning.
Whether you are trying to decide if you want to order a Stitch Fix of your own, are on your fix #23 like me ( I feel like such a Stitch Fix veteran 🙂 ) or whether you are waiting for your first box, I invite you to start your reading at TheBoxQueen’s Stitch Fix section with all my previous reviews. There you’ll find a wealth of information on how Stitch Fix works, how to get your best box, and see the types of brands & pieces they send in outfits I put together along with my style tips. There’s even a Stitch Fix Remix Series ( second edition is coming very soon )
As asking for accessories in my March Stitch Fix for the first time was such a success, I asked for them again. I ended up receiving two tops, a pair of patterned jeans, a green satchel bag, and a cuff bracelet in my April box.
Are you ready to see everything I received in detail? As always I am starting each piece with Stitch Fix’s nifty styling cards. These cards are super useful to collect, and refer back to. You’ll also find my style tips, and all the outfit details under the pictures. Let’s begin. <3
I’ve seen the Dear John jeans before, and I think I even pinned them on my Stitch Fix pinterest board. ( I update my board frequently with my SF outfits, and new Stitch Fix offerings. You can find it here) I like how Stitch Fix styled the jeans with flats, and heels for day & night.
Dear John Niki Cropped Skinny Jean ($78)
As soon as I held these jeans I thought they would make a lovely outfit for a day around town. I paired them with this Green V Neck Top. It comes in 5 colors, looks great with a bralette, and is a versatile spring/summer basic. I bought this top in 3 colors. I wore low heel mint sandals, and modern jewelry including the bracelet from RocksBox . ( see my review here, and receive a month of free subscription with code Theboxqueenxoxo )
The exact same jeans can also be found here.
Style Tip: Busy patterns such as these cropped jeans become the center of attention in an outfit. It’s best not to overpower them with other busy elements, and keep the rest of your pieces clean. I purposefully chose a solid color top, color block mint sandals, and delicate accessories. Even my clutch is a neutral to add balance to my look.
For your reference I am about 5 4′ to 5 5′ and these cropped jeans look more regular length on me. I actually love the length.
STATUS – UNDECIDED. These pants are really cute. As you’ll see below though I purchased two new jeans, and also bought the white rose ones from my March Stitch Fix post. I feel like I went overboard with jeans lately. As I had only a couple days to make my decision, I sent these jeans back to Stitch Fix. I am seriously thinking of purchasing them here soon though.

This colorful tie-back chevron sleeveless top was one of the two tops I got in my April Stitch Fix. In the styling cards they showed two outfits with it; one with a cardigan, and another in a blazer.
- Olive & Oak Arynn Tie-Back Chevron Print Tank ($48)
- Urban Expressions Elisha Zipper Accent Structured Satchel ($58)
- Zad Leon Multi-Colored Beaded Cuff ($34)
I think my longtime stylist Ishara had a pattern going on here with these three pieces that could go together ; she is talented like that in choosing cool pieces. In my opinion, the colorful Zad bracelet, the STUNNING green satchel ( Hint, hint 😉 ), and the chevron top match so beautifully.
Style Tip: When you have a multi color piece to start your outfit with, look closely to figure out which colors would compliment it. My goal here was to come up with a romantic, springy look. These pink jeans in the perfectly on trend hue act like a spring neutral against the rainbow of colors on the chevron top. I introduced pop of other colors with the bead bracelet, and the green bag but kept my high heels a true light brown neutral as an anchoring piece.
Same bracelet in gold & silver & another similar ZAD bracelet I loved
These pink skinny jeans are one of my latest purchases. This shade of pink is pretty popular this season, and I love how it can act like a neutral with so many colors in the warmer months.
1) Olive & Oak Arynn Tie-Back Chevron Print Tank – SENT BACK
Although very pretty, as you may see from my pictures this chevron tank is see through. I would need to wear another layer under it at all times which I found to be kinda cumbersome. In addition I already have MANY chevron pieces in my wardrobe. I sent this piece back.
2) Urban Expressions Elisha Zipper Accent Structured Satchel – KEPT Ladies this satchel is IT. It’s the piece that had me at hello, and I am holding onto it never letting go haha. It found its deserving place in my dressing room.
3) Zad Leon Multi-Colored Beaded Cuff – SENT BACK
What a gorgeous bracelet. I have so many similar bracelets in nearly identical colors so it made sense to send it back. Love the fit of it too. Check out the same one in silver, and gold.

This lace detail long sleeve top was the last piece in my April Stitch Fix box. Both outfits in the style cards featured jeans, and I agree that this top was made to be worn with jeans.
Loveappella Georgini Lace Detail Knit Top ($54)
The Loveappella lace detail top is super soft, and has a relaxed fit. I bought these more relaxed style destroyed jeans ( you know I have a slight
obsession love affair with destroyed jeans. Ok maybe not so slight haha it’s at I can’t NOT buy one when I see one proportions ) These ones are so comfy, and perfect though. Really!!
Style Tip: A long sleeve lace detail top, jeans, and pumps is an effortless everyday outfit which you can make special with little touches. Half tuck your top, add your favorite necklace, and find a purse that adds color to your outfit like my red one adds a punch to the navy dominated look.
Necklace is Wantable. ( all my reviews here )
STATUS – SENT BACK
Right now my shopping is in the “in between” stages. I am buying a lot of short sleeves, spring jeans, skirts, and dresses. I think if this top was short sleeved I would probably keep it.
