This is the 19th Stitch Fix that I’ve received since I started getting them back in September 2014. I usually only keep one or two clothing items, but I’ve obviously been pleased with the service to get it for so long! If you’re not familiar, Stitch Fix is a subscription box service that has you fill out a style profile survey, and then they send you 5 clothing items to try on – you decide what to keep and what to send back!
Julie has been my stylist since the beginning (aside from one fix when she was on maternity leave) and she’s done a great job getting to know me but also getting me to try different things as well. This time around I asked for some shirts and dresses – but no dresses with elastic waistbands, since I’ve found that doesn’t really work for me. Let’s take a look at what Julie sent!
Renee C Revill Crew Neck Blouse – $48
This is a bold pattern, but I rather liked it. However, I wasn’t crazy about the way that the shirt fit. It was really cute in the back – there was a slit in the back and it was a hi-lo sort of design. However, this shirt probably needed to be more fitted or something for me. This is a little weird to describe but bear with me. Chances are you’ll know what I’m talking about. It’s one of those shirts that hits your boobs, and then never curves back in but just kind of hangs at the same distance that your boobs stick out, which is not a particularly flattering silhouette. Returned.
LILA RYAN Avianna Cropped Denim Jacket – $78
Apparently the 90’s are back! It’s been a long time since I put on a jean jacket. The one that I had back in elementary school was also covered in awesome(?) patches. I was cool, yo. Anyway, I actually liked this a little more than I expected to. The cropped look is cool, but I just don’t think denim jackets are really my style anymore. And the sleeves were a little short when my arms weren’t down by my sides. I’m glad to have tried it though, since I love Stitch Fix for pushing me outside of my comfort zone! Returned.
Loveappella Atherton Lace Sleeve Knit Top – $48
I was super on the fence about this one because it’s cute, and it fits well, but it’s also a bit plain for a $48 shirt. It was very soft and fit well, and the sleeves and very cute. It matched the skirt it came with. Ultimately I decided not to keep it due to both the price and the color. I have a lot of navy blue in my closet already, and not a ton of bottoms that match well with navy blue. Returned.
Loveappella Livia Crochet Detail Skirt – $48
I liked some things about this skirt but not others. I really liked the colors – it was a dark gold with navy blue and white, which are colors you don’t see combined all that often. But ultimately I decided to pass on this skirt. It was a little on the short side, and I wasn’t crazy about the crochet detail. As someone who works in a library, I want to try and avoid that “old lady librarian” look, haha. Although it doesn’t stop me from wearing cardigans all the time. Returned.
Skies are Blue Stacy Knit Swing Dress – $58
So I wasn’t totally blown away by this dress, but this is the item I ended up keeping. It’s a color that’s a little bit different than other stuff in my closet, and it fit well. I also think it will be a good dress for fall, and one that can transition to winter. I could definitely see adding some leggings, boots, and a sweater to have a dress I can wear in the winter too! Kept.
Overall this fix felt a little bit underwhelming, but I think I’m just being more picky. The shirts, dress, and skirt are all my style in terms of patterns. But I’ve been spending a bit more lately and didn’t want to spend the money for something I was only so-so on. I think the dress is comfy enough that I’ll be wearing it a lot, so it’s a good investment!
