Stitch Fix Review #6

It’s time to share my latest Stitch Fix review with you all!  This month I did my best to give my stylist very specific requests for things that I wanted and needed to add to my closet – a work appropriate dress as well as a fun tank top which can be dressed up or down.  Overall, she definitely listened to my request though I realized I should have been more specific in regards to the work dress request. When I actually need to wear business attire it is business casual versus business. I easily could have kept three of the five items in this stitch but I have a rule of only keeping one item per stitch.

August Stitch Fix

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 theStitch 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. EachStitch 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 FebruaryMarchApril and June) 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. Based on this month’s fix, I would agree with what my friends have said and think that my stylist is doing a great job listening and even asking questions.

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!

Alice Blue Alasdair Scoop Neck Blouse – Medium – $44.00 – Return – This tank top is a fun top for Summer, especially Fourth of July since the vibrant red and navy colors pair perfectly with white jeans for a patriotic look. Unfortunately, I am not a fan of scoop neck tanks and this tank was too large and flowy for my shape. If it fit better I would have been tempted to keep it but in the end decided to return it.

Brixon Ivy Ekland Lace Top – Medium – $58 – Return – I absolutely love the cut and fit of this fun and flattering tank top which includes a cross back and v-neck. However, I have never been a fan of lace whether it be for my wedding dress or wardrobe pieces. In fact, over the years I can only recall owning black lace items which due to their coloring and style, barely resembled lace. If you like lace then this top should definitely be requested in a fix as it fits perfectly and would be the perfect tank to pair with jeans and heels for date night!

Pixley Nelda Halter Blouse – Medium – $44 – Keep – When I saw the vibrant pattern of this top I immediately told Bo that I hoped it would fit. It is unlike any top tank or blouse that I have in my wardrobe and screams Summer. I have worn it four times already – once with white jeans, once with dark jeans, once with jean shorts and even tucked into a navy pencil skirt for work! The cut and style which includes a slim halter strap as well as a v-neck flatters my shoulders and flat chest while the bottom portion is flowy enough to be comfortable but doesn’t add bulk or size. This is hands down my favorite Stitch Fix item to date!

Adrianna Papell Tallulah Dress – 8 – $98 – Return – As I mentioned, I requested dresses which would be work appropriate in this fix. This dress, which would be perfect for a more formal office setting or a cocktail event, is too formal for my typical work meeting. The style of this dress may work on some people but it fit me so poorly that a picture wasn’t worth sharing. The semi cap-sleeve cut was too thick for my shoulders and arms – adding bulk and even though the dress appears long, it hit me at the worst point possible – mid thigh. As you can see in the second picture, there is detailing along the neckline which adds some detail and removes the need to wear a necklace with it. In addition to the dress being too short, the fit was very odd on me – too small in the chest and then large in the hips which is the reverse of what I typically experience.

Adrianna Papell Nevara Dress – 8 – $98 – Return – This was the second work dress included in this box. While the cobalt color is perfect for my complexion, this style was not flattering on my figure. Once again, the thicker strap/sleeve made me seem thick in the arms and shoulders while the square neckline did nothing. The rouching, which is supposed to be flattering was too loose in my mid-section and just hung awkwardly. The crepe material is far too fancy for my work meetings and overall this dress just felt old and stuffy.

    The halter is so pretty on you. I think you made the right choice, not sure any of the other items are very on trend or classic. In reading stitchfix reviews, it seems it often comes down to fit, which is a challenge when dealing with so many different brands. But I do have a few pieces that I wear all the time, which were totally worth it.
