Stitch Fix Review #14: June 2016 and $700 SUMMER GIFT CARD GIVEAWAY
You guys! I’m super excited for this month’s review post! My fix was really diverse and covered a wide range of styles. I think anyone could have found something they liked in this one. And, this time around I’ve teamed up with a group of amazing women to bring you a HUGE Stitch Fix giveaway! Summer is here and if you haven’t tried Stitch Fix before or haven’t asked for a fix in a while now is absolutely the time to sign-up and order a fix, right after you enter to win the gift card! Entering is easy – we’ll get to that in a second. First, let me tell you about Stitch Fix (feel free to skip right over if you’re an old pro), then we’ll get to my review of the pieces (can’t skip the clothes!), and lastly, you can enter to win this fantastic prize.
What is Stitch Fix:
Stitch Fix is a monthly (or semi-regularly, it’s up to you) personal stylist service. The most popular option is a monthly home delivery of 5 items, clothing and accessories, to your door, picked by your stylist. The monthly stylist fee is $20 (yep, that’s it!) and if you choose to keep any of the items, that $20 goes toward your purchase. Once your Fix arrives, you get 3 business days to decide which items to keep, and which, if any, you want to send back. If you need to send items back, they provide you with a prepaid package that can be placed in your mailbox so you literally have to do nothing. To purchase the clothing/accessories you want to keep, you log into your online account, and select the ones you’re keeping and checkout. That’s it!
If you are someone who hates shopping, but doesn’t mind someone shopping for you, this is perfect. If you are someone who needs to be shopped for – then you need this service. If you’re intrigued and you want to step out of your comfort zone and let someone else give you suggestions based on information you’ve given them about what you like, this is what this service is all about!
How to sign up:
Your Stitch Fix stylists will need to get to know you, so you begin by creating an account and taking a personal style quiz and filling out your style profile. This is kind of fun and gives you quite a bit of say in what shows up at your door each month. **You will select your desired price ranges during this part as well. All of your answers and preferences can be changed at any time.
You should also start a Pinterest Stitch Fix board for your stylists to see what your personal style is all about. Be specific and detailed with what you post on there, that will help guide them. There’s a spot in your style profile to paste the link to your Pinterest board.
You can leave the stylists additional messages if you are looking for something specific to arrive in your box – for example, if you have a wedding to go to, or will be going on vacation, job interviews, etc. Your stylists will send you options for these events. You can request to NOT receive specific items in your boxes (I just requested to no longer receive jewelry). I asked not to receive pleather or real fur…
You’ll select when you’d like your box delivered each month (or how often), and it’ll arrive on your doorstep You’ll get an email a week or two before, asking if you have any last minute requests for your stylist, and another email when your box has shipped. Once it arrives, you’ll have 3 business days to decide on which items you’ll keep or send back.

Lucca Clare Scallop Hem Printed Short: Returned
According to the note from my stylist, my entire fix was styled around these shorts but I found that nothing really worked with them, except maybe the teal top below. Nevertheless, I adored them! I was super excited to see Rachel was sending them but I think you can see why they didn’t work out. They were too big around the waist and bulky in the midsection. I also thought they came up too high on my torso and the look just wasn’t quite right, do you think so too? On the other hand, the pattern was perfect for me, right on my style right now and I’m loving scallop hemlines too. I was sad to send these back.
Shiraleah Jesse Crossobody Bag: Kept
After seeing all the amazing handbags Stitch Fix has posted to Pinterest I started pinning a few. I was hoping for a blush or mint (notice a pastel trend?) tote or crossbody but Rachel sent this. My initial thought was no, not what I was hoping for, and that I’d send it back. But then after giving it a shot I decided to keep it. The deep fuchsia color is nice – my handbag collection is super boring so I definitely don’t have anything like it. The material has a matte finish, which I like. There was some rub-off from my pants onto the purse so I have to be extra careful (it did come off easily with a wet washcloth).
Pixley Rivero Button-Down Blouse: Returned
This top is different. I kept an open mind about it but couldn’t make it work. First, it was too big – it seemed to tent out around me and wasn’t flattering. For a peplum top to work I felt it should be fitted around the bodice. I also didn’t know what to make of the blue lace and the collar. What do you think? I found it hard to style too.
Market & Spruce Ochoa Asymmetrical Panel Tiered Knit Top: Returned
At first this top is a lot to take in, but I did like it. It’s flattering, right? The material is stretchy but form-fitting. All the paneling and eye-play is a bit much for me. I also thought the neckline was nice but too low for work, so I sent it back.
Papermoon Lawton Braided Neckline Blouse: Returned
I was a little disappointed with the fit of this blouse. I have it tucked in because otherwise it didn’t flatter me very much. This one also seemed to flare out or “tent” from my chest and needed to be tamed with some tucking action. Otherwise, I thought the color was gorgeous. The material was super lightweight but also a bit sheer. I have a very similar one in my closet already so I sent it back. I paired it with a skirt I received from my March fix!
This fix wasn’t a huge winner for me, and that’s ok. No clothes this round but I surprised myself by keeping the crossbody Rachel sent and I’m excited to add it to my wardrobe this summer! I have another Fix coming in June because of the way the timing works out so there will be another opportunity for some summer pieces.
