Stitch Fix Review #5! 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 in my last review I said I was requesting fair and festival pieces — we hit those kind of summer celebrations pretty hard, and I love having cute, breezy pieces ready to roll. I peeked, and not gonna lie, given unlimited funds, this could have been a 5/5 at first glance, but we’re moving and 1) I need to buy all the organizational things and 2) My husband will flip if I add a lot more stuff to move. Bottom line: we’re hoarders and I didn’t discover it until I had to put all our stuff into boxes. So I’m going to be a little lighter on the fashion posts until we’re in our new house — food I can justify, but beautiful new clothes mid-move will be a tougher sell :). Here’s what my stylist sent:
Stitch Fix Piece #1: Market & Spruce Elody Embroidered Detail Dress $68
Initial thoughts: I super heard the lyrics “I’m a Barbie Girl …” in my head when I saw this dress. Is it wrong to be 36 and still love hot pink from head to toe? If it’s wrong, I don’t want to be right.
The Try-on: Love the color and the length of the dress is great. Once I got it on, I remembered that I do have a dress from a previous fix that is this exact color story and a similar cut too. And I’m the tiniest bit squished at the top, so not a great fit, unfortunately.
The Verdict: Returned
Stitch Fix Piece #2: Skies Are Blue Edgar Border Print Knit Top, $54
Initial thoughts: Love everything about this! The color, the cut, the print. I’m interested that it says it’s a knit top because it looks very blousey.
The Try-on: So I thought I would love this, but it ended up being the first piece that I just can’t post a picture of it. The knit structure ended up being it’s downfall. It was just a bit tight and it could not have been more unflattering. Loved the caged detail on the back, but when the fit doesn’t flatter, no amount of cute cage detailing can save it!
The Verdict: Returned!
Stitch Fix Piece #3: Sweet Grey Juni Mixed Material Top, $58
Initial thoughts: I love red, white and blue color combos for summer, not at all limited to the Fourth. Love the cut and a mixed material top is usually super comfortable with the breezy cotton back combined with the blousey front. I’m not always a fan of a tie neckline, so we’ll see.
The Try-on: Love the feel of this one! The silky front just felt so amazing and I loved the cotton back. But I’m someone who is in fall prep mode starting about July 5th, and while this is so cute, I don’t see it working as a layering piece going into fall with these colors
The Verdict: Returned
Stitch Fix Piece #4: Market & Spruce Lexxi Tie Back Knit Top, $44
Initial thoughts: Loving this casual/cute mix! The stripes are perfect and I love any back detailing that says “business in the front, party in the back.”
The Try-on: The knit on this is a great weight and felt really luxurious and it has a great tie back detail at the neckline which I loved. I think this is great to wear now and I could really see it paired with a red or gold cardigan to take it into fall.
The Verdict: Kept!
Stitch Fix Piece #5: Sole Society Medina Woven Tote, $59
Initial thoughts: You know how some people are shoe people? Well I’m a super bag/purse person. My husband tried to institute a 1 in 2 out policy on new purses/bags — guess how well that went? 🙂 This is so cute and fun and Sole Society is one of my go-to purse brands. My only hesitation is summer is close to 2/3 over and I don’t know how well this will travel into fall.
The Try-on: I wasn’t sure of the rules for removing the plastic wrap on the bag, so I left it on for the pic. I thought I would love this, but the fringe detailing is really plasticy and just seems off somehow. Like as if only the fringe is made out of recycled plastic bags, but it doesn’t really go with the rest of the tote.
The Verdict: Returned!
So that’s it for Stitch Fix Review #5. If you saw anything that inspired your fix, you can always pin right from the image, or I have a board just for the screenshots here. Next fix I’m requesting all things fall: layering pieces and general fall preparedness :). What’s on your next fix list? I’d love to hear in the comments!
