Two fixes and two giveaways in one month!? Somehow the stars aligned and I lucked out with timing, and I hope you luck out with winning! You can enter to win at the end of this post, please follow all bloggers for extra entries to win! But first, let’s review my second June Fix. Last month I nabbed a purse, which was the first time that I ever purchased an accessory from Stitch Fix. It wasn’t the first time I walked away from a fix without any clothes, but it’s been quite a while. I was eager to see what summer pieces might arrive this round because that’s basically what I (very vaguely) asked for. I also asked for dress options for upcoming events this summer.
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!
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.

I always get worried when I sneak a peek at what’s coming my way on my Stitch Fix app and immediately fall in love with something. This top looked too good to be true in the preview photo but fortunately it was just as perfect in person. The combo of colors is perfect for so many pieces in my closet, like these blush skinny jeans and my teal Margaret M pants, also from Stitch Fix. The v-neck is a delicate added touch that I liked a lot, and the top is slightly longer in the back which is ideal for me. The sleeves had a hidden tab if you want to roll them.

This plaid button-down was very pretty and so so soft. It was a little tight in the arms for me though. I didn’t understand the price for such a basic top, as it was 100% rayon. My stylist sent me a very similar top in another fix and though I liked that one too I didn’t keep it either.
What do you guys think of this top? I didn’t think I would like it, but I did. Despite the description, it isn’t actually lace, it’s more of a crochet top. I liked the detail and pattern. I also liked the hemline. The arm holes were too big, for me, and the fact that the arm holes for the overlay were huge didn’t make the appearance from the side any better. Despite my concern about the armholes I still liked the top quite a bit but I did wind up sending it back. I received a cobalt blue top with a lasercut design and similar hem in a recent fix and I haven’t been wearing it as much as I thought I would.
Are you guys getting the impression that I’m not much of a pattern person? If so, you’d be right. It’s not that I don’t like pattern, because I do, it’s just that I’ve been really unimpressed with the patterned dresses from Stitch Fix. I didn’t like the patterns in this dress, none of them (there are several…). I did like the fit, neckline, hemline, and the cutout in the back. Had this been in a totally different color and pattern, I’d have wanted it.
This is a great maxi! It’s so flattering and comfortable. I liked the break-up in the pattern on the chest and on each hip but the patterns weren’t identical so I thought it looked a little unusual. I probably would have kept this one if I already didn’t own a very similar maxi.
Overall, I thought this was another decent fix. Obviously the floral blouse was a winner for me and the cobalt lace overlay top really grew on me too. If I didn’t already own a similar maxi I would have been keeping that one for sure! Next fix I’ll be asking for more summer pieces and dresses. I’m going to change it up a little bit by asking for more neutral/blush colors because my fixes have been predominantly jewel-toned recently.
