I’m super excited to share my March 2020 Stitch Fix unboxing with you today. I found it to be a nice change from all the winter clothes I had received as of late from Stitch Fix.
Being a Floridian, winter clothes are typically a waste so I was thrilled to see more items geared towards spring. I’m seriously dying for spring to get here already! This inconsistency in temperatures is driving me crazy. And don’t get me started on all the rain…
Springtime in Florida is probably my favorite season. There’s tons of sunshine, very little rain and a minimal amount of humidity. I pretty much try to convince everyone I know to visit Florida during the spring. Embarrassingly, I wrote an entire post on it. Can we say obsession?!
But let’s get back to the clothes. As you can tell, I was very pleased to receive items in this month’s Stitch Fix that gave me more of a spring feeling. All five items were good transitional pieces from one season to the next. I must admit, Stitch Fix really shines in that department!
I had a great time trying on all the items from my current box and putting on my monthly fashion show for my Instagram followers. I’ve been doing these fashion shows for quite some time now and I find them to be fun and extremely helpful.
I say they’re helpful because I kindly ask my Instagram followers to vote on whether I should keep or return each of the items I receive in my monthly boxes. Believe me, there have been many times where I was on the fence about an item and the votes helped me solidify my final decision on the item.
Last month, I got the bright idea to upload those videos to my YouTube channel so those of you reading my posts could get a better idea of what the items look like on me. Light bulb moment, I know. I share the brand name, sizes and price of all the items from my box within the video.
This is still a new feature for me and a work in progress. I’m always open to any feedback or recommendations on how I can improve. Please don’t hesitate to let me know in the comments below or even send me an email. I love hearing from you all.
Stitch Fix Box Review: March 2020 Fix #56
As much as I liked all the items in this month’s fix, I ended up keeping only one of them. After 56 boxes, and receiving clothes on a monthly basis, I’ve become a little picky on what I decide to keep. There are plenty of times that I really want an item but I ultimately decide to return it. Most of the time, I return the item for one of these reasons: I already have something similar to it in my closet, it’s too expensive, or I don’t think I’ll wear the item enough to make the purchase worth my while.
One thing is certain, I make sure to tell my stylist, Sierra, all these details when I checkout. I want her to know what styles I like, what items fit or didn’t fit me, and if I think something is too pricey. This is how I have managed to receive so many amazing boxes for the last 5 years. I wrote all my tips for getting the best Stitch Fix boxes in this post, here.
Item #1 RAILS Cara Printed Tee SIZE- XS $88.00
My thoughts: If I’m being honest, my initial thoughts on this item was, “Why the heck are you so expensive!” This is mainly because I loved the shirt so stinking much but couldn’t stomach the idea of spending over 80 dollars on a basic v-neck shirt. Yes, the material felt like butter on my body. Yes, I loved the zebra print and cream color of the shirt. But, heck to the NO would I pay that amount of money for it. On the flip side, I am now actively looking for a cheaper version of this shirt on Amazon, Target, and Walmart. If you come across one, please give me the details!

My decision: RETURN
Item #2 DIBA Kubuli Cutout Suede Open Toe Booties SIZE- 5.5 $95.00
My thoughts: I might have a slight obsession with shoes. Maybe it’s because I’m a size 5.5, but I find shoes to be just so darn cute…and I want almost all of them! I have received shoes in many of my other fixes and every single time I struggle with the dilemma of keeping them just because I’m a “shoe girl”.
Let’s talk about the pros of these cute booties first. I absolutely fell in love with the olive color of them. I have another pair of shoes in the same color, also suede, and I’ve worn them to the ground. But since I already have a pair of shoes in olive, did I really need another one? Maybe I did because the styles are completely different but I had a few more cons that ultimately helped me decide to return these. The elastic band around the ankle had a weird buckling effect on the material of the shoe. It bulged out on the side of my ankles and I didn’t care for that at all. Also, and please don’t kill me here, after looking at these shoes a little closer I wondered if they might be a little too old lady-ish for me…

Item # 3 DEMOCRACY Eddie Colored High Rise Skinny Jean SIZE- 0P $68.00
My thoughts: At first glance, I wasn’t sure I was going to like these pants at all. You normally don’t see jeans in a burnt orange color. Or at least I haven’t before. After putting them on, I was actually surprised how flattering the color truly was. I paired it with the zebra print t-shirt and it matched well with it. I kind of dig the color now! My only con, and it was a big one, was the way the jeans fit in my crotch area. There was so much rippling happening and it didn’t flatter me at all. What a shame because I think it would be nice to own a pair of denim that wasn’t in a typical denim color.

Item # 4 MARKET & SPRUCE Bekie Mixed Material Top SIZE- XSP $54.00
My thoughts: This shirt had me at TEAL PINEAPPLES. If you follow along with me and my blog, you know I’m completely and utterly obsessed with teals and blues. Basically, my entire house is the same color scheme as this top. I love the neckline of this shirt and the feminine crocheted detail down the entire back of it. It’s a little on the long side so you can tuck it in the front or tuck it in completely like I did with the knit skirt I was also sent. I loved everything about this shirt and I just had to have it. It will be perfect with a cardigan or denim jacket during spring but will transition into the summer without that additional layer just as easily.

My decision: KEEP
Item # 5 SKIES ARE BLUE Louise Knit Skirt SIZE- XS $48.00
My thoughts: Last month I was sent a long skirt from my stylist, Sierra, and I was on the fence about keeping it due to its long length. Because I’m so short, I tend to wear shorter skirts. In my mind, it gives me the illusion that I look taller than I am. I decided to send back the skirt last month and shared my concerns about it with Sierra. In response to my feedback, she sent me this skirt that was still on the longer side but still shorter than the one from my last fix. I must say, I did love the length. I think it’s very flattering and I would love to try another skirt in this length sometime in the future. I also loved the feminine touch of the scalloped hemline. My biggest complaint was the material was a little too stretchy and my hips were pop, pop, poppin’ out the sides! I just couldn’t get passed that and decided to send it back.

Final thoughts for my March 2020 Stitch Fix Box:
I think Sierra did a great job finding items within my style profile but some just didn’t fit well or weren’t worth the money in my opinion. Like I mentioned early, I made sure to give all this feedback to Sierra in hopes of better luck with my next Stitch Fix box. I’m confident Sierra won’t let me down. Plus, April is my birthday month so I’m expecting big things from my next fix!

I receive a fix every month and would love to get shoes with it. I wear 10 1/2 in womens. Do you have that size in a womans shoe?
Hi Crystal! I don’t actually work for Stitch Fix so I can’t answer that question 100%, but I can say I have received shoes multiple times in my fixes. I wear a size 5 1-2 though 🤦🏽♀️ I would reach out to Stitch Fix and see what I say.

Oh wow!! Thanks for sharing 💗
Loved reading your rationale for keeping or returning. I am a newbie: box #3. Love it since I detest shopping for clothes. Always one item at a time, usually clearance or on sale and usually something I need not serendipity. In the 3 boxes I now have 12 different configurations of real outfits. I look good. Husband commenting: you look good. The best part is having choices and pictures to show what goes with what. So thank you for your genuine feelings on your experience.
If you can’t tell, I’m obsessed after all these fixes!! I truly feel like it’s Christmas every time a box comes. I love trying on clothes that I would probably never pick for myself and then realizing I love them. So happy you’re enjoying the service and finding my posts helpful. I’d love to see some of your 12 new pieces. ❤️
