Hello, friends!! I’m back with my July Stitch Fix review. I don’t know about you guys, but this summer has just flown by for us! We have filled our days with all things summer leaving absolutely no extra time for shopping trips. We have just 2 weeks before schools starts. And we love to spend our summer outside soaking up the sun and enjoying the sheer fun of summer, not in a dressing room crammed 5 people deep (yes, friends, I travel with an entourage of 4)! Luckily Stitch Fix has my back! Five pieces hand selected just for me and sent right to my door!
How does Stitch Fix work?
Stitch Fix is an online styling service that provides you with 5 pieces personalized to you. Items range from clothing to shoes to accessories. When signing up for Stitch Fix, you fill out a style profile to give them an idea of your price range, body shape and size, preferences, and style. You also have an opportunity to write a note to your stylist explaining any specifics for that fix (i.e. particular needs, upcoming events, must haves, etc). Unlike most subscription services, there are no set number of required fixes. You can sign up for as often as monthly or simply schedule them along the way as needed. After you sign up, you are charged a $20 styling fee, which is then applied to any items you decide to keep. If you love and keep all 5 items, there is a 25% discount applied to your entire purchase. Once they are mailed to you, you have 3 days to choose what you like and what you don’t, check out on an app on your phone, and then throw the pieces you don’t want into a prepaid envelope they provided and pop it back in the mail. Super simple and you never have to leave your own home (can I get an Amen?!). You can also check out my post How To Get The Most Out Of Stitch Fix for more Stitch Fix tips.
I’m still on the quest for all things summer fix with tanks, casual dresses, and a third attempt at summer sandals, a romper, and shorts. I had a new stylist again this fix, so still working on building a relationship with my stylist where she really understands my style wants and needs.
So here’s what I got…
Market & Spruce Elody Embroidered Detail Dress. This dress was super cute with really nice embroidery, cut outs at the top along the neckline, and a tie back to add some special details to a simple summer dress. It’s bright with a lightweight fabric making it perfect for summer. I really loved the elastic at the waist to define shape. While I liked the dress, I didn’t need the dress. It’s too short for church and too dressy for my everyday. I am currently more in need of casual cotton and knit dresses for everyday wear right now, so this didn’t fit that bill.
Papermoon Egan One Pocket Knit Tee. When I first saw this tank, I thought I would love it. I love stripes…seriously, friends, stripes are my go to pattern. This top was exactly what I needed in my closet: casual, easy tanks that I can wear running around with the kids. I loved the front pocket and back key hole details, too. It also has this really cute zigzag stitch in the striped pattern making it just a little different from most striped shirts. However, when I tried it on, the proportions seemed off. The tank felt too long for me once I paired it with shorts. I really wanted to love it, but couldn’t.
Just Black Rhye Distressed Frayed Hem Short. These shorts had a nice light wash, distressing, and unfinished hem making them casual and great for everyday wear. They have a longer inseam giving them almost a Bermuda shorts feel. In theory I should love these shorts, but in reality I do not. The length is too long for me. I know, I know. Last fix I turned down the distressed fray hem denim short because the length was too short, and this month I’m complaining that these are too long. But I’m a firm believer in the importance of being picky when it comes to your clothes. All to often I have kept something I didn’t love and then regretted it.
Kaileigh Marisole Knit Romper. I’ve been on a quest for a romper this summer, but just haven’t been able to find the right one. Fit can be a little tricky with rompers, and if you’re long waisted, you might want to size up. This romper was so comfortable with the softest knit material. It also had pockets, which is always a selling point. The cut with a v neckline and tie waist were flattering. I had pinned a similar floral romper on my Stitch Fix Pinterest Board, which is why my stylist sent this particular one. While the material and cut were great, the print was a miss. I like florals, but something about the size and colors of this floral didn’t work for me. I was envisioning something a little softer, while this print felt much bolder than I wanted to go.
Dolce Vita Laser Cut Slide Sandal. I was sent the most beautiful pair of gladiator sandals last fix that I had to turn down due to the hefty price tag, so I requested a more affordable option this time. These red slides are extremely comfortable with a cushy bottom, and at a lower price point. I do like them, but somehow they just don’t align totally with my style. I will also note that they did slip a bit when I walked, so sizing down a 1/2 size may help with that fit issue.
Yes, friends, you read that right. I sent it all back. My stylist gave me everything I asked for, but each piece was just a little off for me. I am working on being pickier with my pieces trying to be mindful of if I like it or love it. Love it pieces are the only things I want in my closet these days. It can be really easy to fill up a closet full of good enough pieces and then feel frustrated every time you go to pick out an outfit. So I’m holding out for the love its, and sending it all back.
