I’ve been trying to transition my wardrobe since I’ve moved and also graduated from college. I really want to start building my wardrobe with good quality clothing pieces that don’t make me look like I’m 18, but also don’t make me look older. I’ve seen people post about Stitch Fix and I was always curious about it so I thought I’d give it a try since this was the perfect opportunity. Overall, I was super impressed and really enjoyed it. I was sent items I would never have picked for myself and ended up falling in love with 2 of the items.
What is Stitch Fix?
Stitch Fix is a styling service. You pay a $20 styling fee and a stylist sends you a box with 5 items to try on. What’s great about Stitch Fix is that you don’t have to leave your home and you can try on your clothes, shoes, accessories, etc. with the items you’ve been sent to see how you can style each item. When you checkout, you have a few options:
- If you keep 1 to 4 items, the $20 styling fee is applied as credit to the total. So if you buy 1 item that is $65, you pay $45 since you have the $20 styling fee credit.
- If you keep all 5 items, your $20 styling fee is applied as credit to your total and you also receive 25% off the total purchase.
- If you don’t buy any items, you’re simply out $20.
Before I was sent my items, I filled out my style profile with my likes and dislikes, created a Stitch Fix Pinterest board, and left a note for my stylist on what I want and/or don’t want. This allowed my stylist to have an idea of what items I would like to be sent in my box.
Here’s what was in my July 2016 Stitch Fix box! If you have any pieces that you think I’d like to request in future boxes, let me know!
Collective Concepts Marimar Rope Detail Top – $58 – Kept
I’m not really into the paisley pattern so when I saw this top, I was less than thrilled because it looks SO similar to paisley. When I tried it on, I fell in love with it! I live in Dallas, Texas so the heat is on another level here and this shirt is perfect for hot days! It has somewhat of a cap sleeve, but large arm hole and it’s super flowy so it lets me stay cool on hot days. It’s so cute paired high waisted distressed denim shorts and will transition perfectly into the fall with flared jeans. The top has this really cute rope detail (well duh, it’s in the name) and has the prettiest colors. I wear mostly black, white, and grey so this is a nice pop of color in my wardrobe.
Crescent Romero Strap Detail Blouse – $44 – Returned
My next item was this cute floral top. I really liked the style of this top and thought the pattern was pretty. The pattern seemed a little older for my taste, though. It’s a thin material and is flowy so it’s perfect for the Texas heat. I really loved the strap detail on this top. I tried this on with my black skinny ankle pants for work, a pair of dark skinny jeans, and a pair of dark flared jeans. The top looked nice with all of them so it’s a great work to casual top. I couldn’t see myself getting much wear out of the top though especially for the price so I didn’t end up keeping it.
Loveappella Taliah Knit Dress – $64 – Kept
This was the second item I kept and also the item I thought I’d hate. I usually don’t like small patterns like this, especially on a dress because it’s a lot of pattern. When I tried it on, I didn’t want to take it off. It’s so comfortable! And I loved how the pattern looked on! What really sold me though was the neck detail. It has this triangle cut out that looks so good on. It’s a flowy dress and super light weight so it’s absolutely perfect for exploring Texas in the heat. It’s also a great piece to transition from work to casual as well as summer to fall. I tried it on with a light sweater and jean jacket and both looked so cute. The dress looked great paired with just about every shoe I own especially some cognac sandals or cognac wedges.
Skies are Blue Avelina Jersey Dress – $68 – Returned
I thought I would really like this dress, but was less than impressed with it once I tried it on. It’s a bit on the heavier side especially since it’s lined, so it would be super hot to wear. I also didn’t like the neck detail on this dress. It just looked off when I had it on and made the dress look a little too nice. The dress didn’t seem to dress down well and I really like items I can dress up or down so I can wear them to work or out running errands. I also didn’t like the pattern when I got it on. I ended up returning this dress.
Dear John Marson Wide Leg Denim Trouser – $78 – Returned
I thought I was going to love this pair of jeans when I opened my box. I did like them, but I wasn’t in love with them so I couldn’t justify spending the money. They were SO comfortable, which made it really difficult to say no to these. My favorite item of clothing is jeans so this was a struggle. I requested a pair of nice flare jeans that I can wear casually, but also dress up for work. These were what I requested, but the wide leg looked off on me. I have a small frame with large hips so sometimes the wide leg can make my body look disproportionate so I need flare jeans that fit in the legs. I’m hoping next time I’ll get a great pair that looks good on!
Overall, I was really pleased and impressed with my Stitch Fix for July 2016! I can’t wait to see what’s in my next one! If you’re interested in Stitch Fix, you can sign up here: Stitch Fix
