Stitch Fix Review #5

Happy Tuesday guys!

It has been a while since I last talked about Stitch Fix on the blog. As I am currently in between sizes and not feeling my best, I have started scheduling fixes every other month versus every month. Whether it’s shopping online, in-person or with the help of my Stitch Fix stylist, it’s hard to shop when you don’t feel your best. But, after receiving an email reminder from them a few weeks ago, I figured it was time to schedule a fix and test my luck.

In case this is your first time hearing about Stitch Fix back in January. It is an online personal shopping and styling website. After registering for the site, new members fill out an in-depth style survey and profile which helps the Stitch Fix personal stylists get to know you. The questions include things like sizes, styles, favorite colors, brands, and other likes and dislikes.  Once you finish the profile you are able to schedule your first Stitch Fix delivery. Each Stitch Fix delivery is a box of five pieces of clothing or accessories. Each month I share with you a recap of what I receive (January FebruaryMarch and April) and my thoughts on each piece. Your personal stylists selects the items for your individual fix based on the answers you provided in the survey. There is a $20 styling fee which you have to pay up front, but, the good news is that this $20 works as credit towards any of the items you want to keep.


Many of my friends who have loved Stitch Fix for years told me to give my stylist time to figure out my personal style, and therefore expect each box to get better. In advance of scheduling this fix, I spent time going through m profile and leaving a note for my stylist regarding my recent weight fluctuation. This month’s box had a few items that definitely took this feedback into account. I’m hoping that next month I’ll finally get to try out their newest feature – SHOES!

Here we go! Remember – If you see anything that you like below, feel free to pin and/or ask your stylist in the notes section of your next fix for something similar! Your stylist does her best to get to know you and therefore will read your blog, check out your Pinterest board and even your Facebook page if you give her access so she can see what you wear and love! In addition, remember that while I do get a small amount of compensation if you join Stitch Fix, all thoughts and feedback are my own opinion!

Stitch Fix Wilam Blouse

Papermoon Wilam Blouse – $38  – Keep – The moment I touched this top I hoped it would fit. The light weight fabric is perfect for the hot Summer months and it is unlike anything I own. The vibrant pastels brighten up any look and the material, while sheer, works well with my nude t-shirt bra. I have paired this blouse with shorts, skinny jeans and even a pencil skirt – each time receiving multiple compliments!

Stitch Fix Cindie Linen Short

Skies are Blue Garrick Button Down Top – $58 – Return –  As soon as I saw this top I laughed because it reminded me more of my mom than me. She has an almost identical top that she wears frequently. This top was the only pure disappointment in the box as it was way too large and just didn’t seem to fit my style profile or age.

Level 99 Cindie Linen Short – $78 – Return – I loved these shorts SO much. The fit was flattering and the material was light weight and comfortable.  Shorts tend to run small on me due to long legs and muscular thighs but these worked perfectly. The price tag was far to steep, in my mind, for a pair of casual shorts. I tend to buy my shorts at J Crew Factory so I’m accustomed to an under $30 price point for shorts, not nearly $80.

Stitch Fix Blouse

Hawthorn Lisbon Stud Detail Blouse – $58 – Return – While I loved the color of this blouse, I just couldn’t get past the stud design nor the sleeves. The shirt fit perfectly in the neck and body but the sleeves were too puffy for my taste.  The heavy, metallic studs seemed to ruin the the light, flowy fabric and feel of the top.

Stitch Fix Scallop Blouse

 

Papermoon Violeta Scallop Detail Blouse – $44 – Return – I loved this top as soon as I saw it in my box. The scallop detail and open back are a fun change from most of my tops. But, as soon as I put it on I realized how plain it was from the front which therefore made it seem like just another black tank. If I didn’t have two black tanks that I loved already, I would have kept it but since from the front this looked identical to both of them, I just couldn’t rationalize keeping it.

Your turn: What piece is your favorite? What would have you kept?

    I love the striped top that you kept and also the black scalloped one! I totally get it though if the front is too similar to stuff you already have. I get so angry with myself when I literally buy multiples of shirts and not realize :)

      Thanks Jenna! Yeah maybe I should have kept that black one…

    Meanwhile, I did just pin the black blouse, but I wanna see the front!

    I like that black tank, but I hear you on having too many.

    • ashleyd June 29, 2016 / 12:10 pm

      That’s my biggest thing with Stitch Fix is trying to make sure they send me things I don’t have :)

    Too bad the front of that last top wasn’t more exciting, I love the scallop back!

    • ashleyd June 29, 2016 / 12:10 pm

      I know Danielle I loved the scallop back too! In fact the more I look at it the more I regret sending it back. *sigh*

    I agree with the gals above, that black tank is FAB for the back!

    Meanwhile, I know feeling your best is about YOUR feelings, but I have to say I think that you look fantastic. I’ve been silently thinking it to myself over your last few blogs and insta. Maybe it’s that good ol Vermont fresh air giving you a glow 😉 I hope you’re not beating yourself up at all, because I think your journey and determination are pretty darn inspiring and that’s why I love keeping up with you. <3

      Aww thanks Gwen! That is so sweet! I have been beating myself up lately but I’ll try to take a step back :)

    Love the striped blouse and also the detailing on the back of the last one unique! But you also look well and fit, I know what it is not to be at the comfortable weight but hopefully you are feeling better!

    I am with you on the price of the shorts – I am a big fan of Loft and their Riviera shorts (both 2 and 4 inch inseams) and they are all super on sale right now! I maybe bought 3 pairs today :)

    • ashleyd June 30, 2016 / 12:54 pm

      Thanks for the heads up Gianna! I love those shorts especially the fun patterns! :)

    Hi Ashley – great post. The black was so lovely from the back but yes plain from the front. The stripy top that you are keeping though is gorgeous! I am not sure if it is my iPad but all your photos seem to be horizontal when they should be vertical and I have to turn my screen (or head) to view them properly.

    • ashleyd June 29, 2016 / 6:59 pm

      I am working to figure out the issue!

    I ‘m pretty sure that your mom and I are close in age. I want to give you some advice that I bet she would agree with. You are just fine the way you are. Don’t fret too much about body issues. Strive for healthy, but beyond that be gentle with yourself. Years from now you will look back on this time and realize you were in your prime. I too beat up on my self for years. I look at pictures from the past see a young attractive woman. Why I didn’t I see that then?? Enjoy your youth and beauty. Your middle age self will thank you later.

      Thank you for the sweet words Lealie!
