Spring Stitch Fix Review: 3 Keepers

In this spring Stitch Fix review, I'm sharing the three keepers from my latest fixes and how to style them.

It’s been forever since I’ve shared a style post on the blog (Pumps & Iron should just be Pumping Iron at this point) so I thought it’d be fun to show you guys a few pieces from my two most recent Stitch Fix deliveries. I get a fix every other month so this spring Stitch Fix review is of keepers from April and June.

I mentioned in past posts that I increased my price ranges in my Stitch Fix profile. The great thing about that is I’m getting high quality pieces from brands I know and love. The downside is that I typically can only afford to keep one or two items from each fix. That’s not really a downside though as I have more of a quality-over-quantity attitude about my wardrobe—a necessity when you share a closet with your boyfriend in a small city apartment.

Spring Stitch Fix Review

The Charlie High Rise Skinny Jean by Joe’s Jeans

In this spring Stitch Fix review, I'm sharing the three keepers from my latest fixes and how to style them.

OUTFIT DETAILS | Hummingbird bodysuit via Stitch Fix // Urban Outfitters sunglasses // Joe’s Jeans via Stitch Fix (also available in a cropped version) // Street Level bag via Stitch Fix // Steve Madden strappy heels

I usually get designer jeans from Nordstrom Rack (it’s so hard to justify paying full-price when you can always find them on sale!), but when I tried these on from my April fix delivery, it was one of those don’t-care-what-the-price-tag-says-I-need-these moments. They’re just so comfortable! And ripped! And actually long enough for me! Worth the $150 because I wear them at least twice a week.

High Rise Button-Up White Jeans by Pistola

OUTFIT DETAILS | MODA International blouse — super old, but Revolve has a ton of adorable floral blouses (one of each, please) // Pistola jeans via Stitch Fix // Kork-Ease heels — old, but this pair is cute, too!

White jeans have a lifespan of about one summer with me (note to self: stop wearing them to The Chicken Box). And true to form, these white jeans from two summers ago are now stained and ready to be retired. These new white jeans have a cute frayed hem and a button fly which is a super cute detail if paired with a cropped top or bodysuit. This is my second pair of Pistola jeans from Stitch Fix now and I’m a big fan of the brand. More affordable than other designers (around $80) and have a lot of stretch to them. In this spring Stitch Fix review, I'm sharing the three keepers from my latest fixes and how to style them.

OUTFIT DETAILS | Pistola jeans via Stitch Fix // adidas sneakers // a shirt I stole from Joe (haha)

White jeans are great for dressing up and down. I like wearing them with longer shirts like this plaid one I stole from Joe’s side of the closet because then when I inevitably sit down on dirty benches or the grass I have a layer of protection over my white pants. 😉

Ruffle Bodysuit by Hummingbird

In this spring Stitch Fix review, I'm sharing the three keepers from my latest fixes and how to style them.

I’m obsessed with this bodysuit and the best part? Under $30! It’d look so cute with high waist shorts, a maxi skirt or jeans. Because the ruffled part is fairly long, I don’t have to wear a bra with it which is the real standout feature—anyone else thing strapless bras are the devil’s handiwork? Can’t. Stand. Them.

If you like these occasional style posts, let me know! I honestly don’t shop frequently enough anymore to do these all the time (unless you guys are into seeing me in the same shirt and jeans every day haha), but I’d be down to get my fake model on every other week or so.

I highly doubt the dads of America are spending their Sunday reading a Stitch Fix post on Pumps & Iron, but if any are: Happy Father’s Day! 🙂

Recent Stitch Fix Keepers

Stitch Fix review - Andrew Marc jacket

I’ve received a couple Stitch Fix deliveries since last posting about them so today I’m highlighting the keepers from each (plus sharing another non-Stitch Fix top I’m currently obsessed with). This long sweater was in one of the fixes, but since I’ve already worn it on the blog I decided to spare you the redundancy today.

Teanen Puffer Coat from Andrew Marc ($118)

Stitch Fix review - Andrew Marc jacket

OUTFIT DETAILS | Tank is from a novelty t-shirt shop in Boston – this tank is the closest I could find online // Jeans from a previous fix // Jeans are from a previous fix // Converse high tops // gas station cheapie sunglassesStitch Fix review - Andrew Marc jacket

I was on the hunt for a new winter jacket and fell in love with the burgundy color of this. The collar is thick and padded and the hood is removable.

Alpine Plaid Wrap Scarf by Look by M ($38)

Stitch Fix review - Look by M blanket scarf Stitch Fix review - Look by M blanket scarfThis oversized blanket scarf is impossibly soft and warm. I tend to wear black on black on black outfits all winter so the color of it will be a welcomed addition to my typically boring color coordinating.

Pistola Jeans ($88)

Stitch Fix review - Pistola jeansRips AND zippers?? Sign me up. I got these in a fix in September so I could be off a little with the price but I know they were under $100. I’m new to the Pistola brand but am officially a fan!


(Not Stitch Fix) Lexi Top by Clayton c/o Shopbop ($62)

Lexi Top by Clayton with boyfriend jeans Lexi Top by Clayton with boyfriend jeans Lexi Top by Clayton with boyfriend jeans

OUTFIT DETAILS | Zara jeans – old but similar by ILY Couture ($88) and Rag & Bone ($225 but 15% off with code GOBIG16) // Jeffrey Campbell booties – old but the designer has a similar buckle style in a low-heel bootie and I’m obsessed with this split-ankle bootie as well // H&M jacket – old but this is similarLexi Top by Clayton with boyfriend jeans Lexi Top by Clayton with boyfriend jeans

This has become my go-to shirt for going out for dinner or drinks on the weekend–I love it! I’m totally into the choker trend so the fact that this is an off-the-shoulder top and choker in one made me fall hard for it. Shopbop is actually having a sale right now where the more you spend the more you save so take advantage of it! The sale code is GOBIG16.

Stitch Fix Men Review: A Look Inside Top Model Joe’s First Fix

Stitch Fix Men Review

Not a day goes by that Joe doesn’t do or say something to make my face hurt from laughing so hard. It’s difficult to explain him to someone who hasn’t experienced Joe in person, but he’s hilarious. And not because he’s trying to be, but just because Joe being Joe is ridiculous. I know I sound like an obnoxious obsessed girlfriend but it’s really not just me–I can’t even count how many people would list Joe as one of their favorite humans. He’s 24/7 entertainment. So with all that said (damn does Joe own me a back rub tonight or what??!), it’s been this ongoing joke among our friends for years that Pumps & Iron needs “more Joe.”

At it appears Stitch Fix got that memo.

If you haven’t heard yet, Stitch Fix launched a men’s service! Joe actually loves fashion but he literally wears the same four things every. single. day. and rarely takes the time to go shopping. A service like this is perfect for him (and talk about a great gift idea–I find men so hard to shop for!).

I was going to just let Joe go ahead and fill out his style profile by himself, but then I looked over his shoulder and saw him leave this note to his stylist: screen-shot-2016-09-12-at-9-08-37-am

Yes, that’d be Justin Bobby of The Hills.

Ohdeargod. Aaaaand that’s my cue to step in.

Being the seasoned Stitch Fix vet that I am, I knew the more detail I provided about Joe’s style, the better the chance his stylist would have of getting it right. I admittedly went into his account and–err–elaborated a bit. Still, I figured the first fix would have a few duds as it takes time for any stylist to get to know her/his client. Wrong! Joe’s stylist NAILED IT. He kept all five items!


Joe’s First Fix

Kohen Waffle Knit Bomber Jacket by Ezekiel ($80)

Stitch Fix Men Review Stitch Fix Men ReviewJoe’s wardrobe is black, black, more black, a little gray, some white undershirts. This jacket is perfect for fall weather layering and the zipper detail on the sleeve gives it a bit of edge. Keeper!

Walter Slim Leg Jean by ROHM ($68)

Stitch Fix Men ReviewJoe likes his clothes to be very fitted so I was almost shocked that these jeans fit so well. Again, black, black and more black is Joe’s favorite so these are perfect.

Marathon Hooded Pullover by Alternative Apparel ($40)

Stitch Fix Men Review - hoodieAnother great piece for layering and Alternative Apparel stuff is so soft and comfy! Keeper.

Essential Wash Long Sleeve Shirt by Hawker Rye ($58)

Stitch Fix Men Review Stitch Fix Men Review

Shoes are Cole Haan

This shirt is awesome. Slim fitting, great material, and can be worn to the office or for everyday. One of Joe’s favorites from his first fix!

Back Beat Nep Shirt by Howe ($79)

stitchfixmenshirtThis last shirt was a “like” not a “love” but with the 25% off discount you get for keeping all five items, it was a no brainer to keep it. I don’t think it’ll be in heavy rotation like the other clothes, but it fit Joe great and will definitely get some wear!

I’ll conclude Joe’s first (but certainly not last) modeling blog feature with my favorite shot from the other day. Eat your heart out, Kate Moss.

Stitch Fix Men Review

Does that pose deserve a “YASSSS KWEEN! WERKKKKK!” or what?!

Maybe next time he gets a fix, I’ll make Joe write the post as well as model for it. Not quite sure the world is ready for that though (haha). In the meantime, tell your husband/boyfriend/best friend/dad/mailman that Stitch Fix Men has arrived!
