Stitch Fix Review #3! For anyone wondering, “Stitch what?” Stitch Fix is a styling service where you fill out a profile and a stylist chooses five pieces (clothes, shoes, accessories) to send your way for a $20 styling fee. If you keep anything from your fix your $20 fee is applied as a credit and if you keep all five things, you receive a 25% discount on your whole fix. You have three business days to make your choices and anything you don’t like gets popped into a prepaid envelope and dropped into the mail. Basically Stitch Fix is a mail order personal shopper.

So my last Stitch Fix was my first 0/5 and while my wallet was glad to take a break, I definitely had big time sender-backerer’s remorse over that romper! I thought that third time had to be a charm here so I asked for another go at a romper as well as some bright fun pieces. I followed my five tips to get your best Stitch Fix and it so made a difference, plus I linked my Stitch Fix profile to a new board that you can see here and I think it helped to have all fresh pins. I was excited about every piece when I sneak peeked it!
Collective Concepts Hyacinth Lace Romper, $74
Initial thoughts: I was so ridiculously excited for this one! LOVE the bright red, lace fabric and the style of this one is awesome. Pretty sure this was going to be the romper of my dreams.
The Try-on: So in love! The criscross top give great coverage, no additional tank top needed and there’s even a hidden button where the top crosses to make sure that it doesn’t slide open more. Designers take note, this is an awesome feature. I did feel like it was just a tiny bit tight in the torso during the initial try on, so I did end up exchanging it for an XL to get just a little more torso length. But I will be wearing this romper all over town this summer.
The Verdict: Exchanged!
Skies Are Blue Zacary Ruffle Trim Blouse, $54
Initial thoughts: I loved everything about it. My preferred color palette could best be described as “would never get lost in a crowd” and this 100% fit the bill. Plus it just looked girly and fun.
The Try-on: Love the ruffle double peplum at the bottom and it was so comfortable and flattering on. I wore it to a recent networking lunch and it was the perfect mix of dressy and fun.
The Verdict: Kept!
Cece Sportswear Raelyne Off the Shoulder Cotton Top, $68
Initial thoughts: I was 10/10 pumped about this top. I liked that this skimmed off the shoulders. A lot of off the shoulder tops make it so hard to move your arms. Like where are people going that they don’t need to move their arms at all?
The Try-on: This was perfect! I’ve committed to never wearing a strapless bra again, and the way this was shaped I just moved my straps down off my shoulders and called it a day. It was so flattering and cute and I loved the print. My Stitch Fix actually arrived right before a date night, so I wore this and felt like a million dollars!
The Verdict: Kept!
Skies Are Blue Vesler Ruffle Detail Blouse, $54
Initial thoughts: Love the color (see “brighter is better” above)! This looks bright, breezy and fun!
The Try-on: I need to be a little discerning — I can’t keep everything every single month, although that is a dream 🙂 — so while I did like it, I think the tie front and yoke at the top looks just a little young for my style.
The Verdict: Returned!
Margaret M Sylvie Printed Straight Leg Pant, $98
Initial thoughts: I loved a printed pull-on pant from a Stitch Fix last year so I was excited to see a bright color option.
The Try-on: I was so on the fence on these. If I was keeping these, I was keeping everything because of the discount. But I just could not find the right thing I would wear with these. My style card showed it with a chambray shirt, but it just didn’t work. The top I’ve paired it here with does definitely match, but up close it’s just way too much pattern. I don’t want an expensive pair of pants that I don’t have anything to wear with.
The Verdict: Returned!
This fix was everything I love about Stitch Fix: go-to pieces for your closet with little to no effort by you! Next time I’m asking for some athleisure pieces — looking fancy while lounging about is the goal. I’d love to hear what’s on your next fix request list in the comments!
If you saw anything here that inspired your next fix requests, you can always pin right from the pictures, and I’ve started a Pinterest board that’s just the screenshots in case that’s easier for you to pin. You can find it here.
