Stitch Fix Review July 2016

I HATE shopping in an actual store. I find it exhausting, discouraging and irritating. I do! I am 5’2″, curvy (that’s my story and I’m sticking to it) and I have wide feet. I usually leave a mall with socks and low self-esteem. I love having someone narrow down my choices for me. Nordstrom has a lot, a lot, a lot of shirts. But Stitch Fix sends me five. Even if I don’t like any of the shirts they send me, at least I’m not sad when I’m done trying them on.

If you read last month’s review, you know that I was not thrilled with the results in June. The only thing I kept was a necklace. Customer service at Stitch Fix was very responsive to my feedback and assigned a new stylist. I decided to give them another shot and I’m glad I did. If you have not heard of Stitch Fix before, you can read all about it here.

I had so much fun opening the box on Facebook Live! I loved getting your feedback throughout the day on your favorite items. It took me a few days to try everything on, but here are the results!



THML Dejen Embroidered Top ($58)

I saw this top in my Pinterest feed recently and noticed that it was pretty sheer across the midsection. I tried it on with a white camisole underneath and liked it much better. The fit was perfect and I loved the soft, lightweight cotton. This will get a lot of wear this summer with denim shorts and navy capris. I loved it with my Kut from the Kloth Catherine Boyfriend jeans. (Shoes can be found here.)




MARKET & SPRUCE Sam Hi-Lo Short Sleeve Tee  ($44)

When I pulled this tee out of the box, I loved it! It was a great neutral color and the fabric was soft and stretchy. It is really comfortable, but the length is not flattering on me. I thought it would be more loose fitting on the bottom. But due to the stretchy material and the longer length in the back, I ended up with bunched up fabric in the back. It’s probably a great shirt for a taller person, but just too much fabric for me.

I paired with the the floral shorts that also came in this fix (see below!) and some tan Ecco sandals.




LEVEL 99 Cindie Linen Printed Short ($78)

I loved these shorts right out of the box. The print is bright and cheery and they are super comfortable. The fabric is a linen blend…so you get the summery look of linen, but with fewer wrinkles. My stylist suggested I try them with the gray tee (above) or a chambray shirt. I like the this look a lot better.





LOVEAPPELLA Winere Henley Knit Top ($48)

Let me start by saying that this shirt is butter soft. But I had a feeling I wouldn’t like it on. It reminded me of something I would have worn in elementary school with the red stripes and buttons. And the sections of horizontal stripes near the hip area is not flattering at all. My stylist suggested wearing this tee with jeans or denim shorts. Meh. Just not a great fit or style for me.




UNPUBLISHED Mark Printed Short ($54)

Did you see my face when I pulled these out of the box? Tiny, short, WHITE shorts. Hmmm. Even my 13 year old god daughter said, “Horizontal stripes? Really?” But I wanted to give these little shorts the benefit of the doubt. I do own bleach, so maybe I could make these work. They were fully lined and had a zipper in the back, which made them a bit more dressy than your average shorts. I pictured myself wearing them on date night with a navy blue blouse and cute summer sandals. Okay…maybe.

Girls, I am not even kidding when I tell you that I could not get those shorts past my thighs. 

But don’t they look pretty in the box?



I really enjoyed this fix. Though I didn’t love everything, I did end up with two pieces that will carry me through summer. Both are bright and cheery and just what I needed to brighten up my everyday casual wardrobe. I’m looking forward to another Stitch Fix closer to fall. I always get excited when sweater season rolls around!
