My latest Stitch Fix box arrived the day before my birthday last week. Woohoo birthday fix! It’s been awhile since my last fix in October (and it was pretty decent), so I was excited to see what my stylist chose to send me this time around.
For those unfamiliar with Stitch Fix, it is an online personal styling service. When you sign up, you fill out a detailed profile about your sizing, cost, and style preferences. For $20, your stylist selects 5 items to send to you. If you like them, you can purchase the items. Your $20 styling fee can be applied towards the cost of the items you buy. You can keep all, none, or some of the items (if you purchase all 5 items, you get 25% off your order). You don’t have to commit to a monthly subscription — you can schedule one-off boxes whenever you feel like it! I have also found that curating my style Pinterest board has really helped guide my stylists towards what I like.
For this fix, I asked my stylist for travel-friendly items to refresh my summer wardrobe. I also specifically requested no shoes (I’m particular about my shoes and perfectly capable of picking them out on my own).
Here’s what was in the box:
Liverpool Reed Distressed Bermuda Denim Short
StitchFix always knocks it out of the park for me on bottoms. These shorts are no exception. I love the dark denim wash. They are distressed but not *too* distressed, and the fabric is not too thick, making them perfect for humid DC summers. I was a little wary of the length, thinking they might be a little too long on me, but they are comfortable and I actually don’t have any plain blue denim shorts in my closet at the moment (!) so I decided to keep them.
Brixon Ivy Jarred Lace Detail Cap-Sleeve Blouse
This is definitely the WTF item of this fix, and you know what? It’s not bad. The color is great and I don’t hate the lace. I like that I can wear a regular bra with it and it’s mostly obscured by the lace. It’s also not too blousey like a lot of the workwear Stitch Fix tops seem to be (most of them are boxy and not flattering on me). It’s definitely outside of my comfort zone but I’m willing to take a chance on this top!
Colette Chavez Pop Color Cuff Knit Top
I liked this top when I tried it on, though after reviewing the photographs I decided it is a little too long and baggy on me. However, the fabric is sooooooo soft and I LOVE the stripes with the pop of lime green at the cuffs! Luckily, Stitch Fix now offers exchanges so I exchanged it for the next size down. The smaller size arrived within a few days and it looks great. I’m too lazy to take new pics though.
Gilli Mitchel Knit Maxi Dress
I love everything about this maxi dress! The way it’s cut makes it feel dressier than the typical maxi. I love the print and how soft the fabric is. The left side panel of my dress had a blemish in the fabric, so I exchanged it and got a replacement dress in the same size. I’m probably going to hem it an inch or two, but otherwise it’s perfect.
Octavia London Mixed Material Satchel
I don’t love this bag, but since I loved all of the clothes it makes sense for me to keep the purse and thus the discount. The bag is way bigger than my usual purses and doesn’t have a lot of inside organization. I do like the mixed materials, but unfortunately I don’t think I will get much use out of it. I will probably sell it on one of the Stitch Fix Facebook groups.
My stylist did a great job with this fix. I’m starting to think that being less specific with my requests is the way to go!
P.S. Corner has been getting fixes (yes, they style men now!) but I have yet to convince him to let me take pictures of him modeling his items. Maybe next time!
