Stitch Fix review, July 2014

Name: Stitch Fix
Details: For $20 a month, Stitch Fix will send you a bag of five fashion items--tops, bottoms, jewelry, accessories--and let you decide which ones you want to keep. You can take the $20 you already spent and apply it toward the cost of your purchase.

Let's plunge right in and take a look at the items that I received in my latest Stitch Fix shipment.

1. Leigh drape-back tank from 41Hawthorn (retail value: $44)
2. Lucilla mixed-stripe maxi skirt from Kensie (retail value: $58)
3. Sylvia front-zip crossbody tote from Urban Expressions (retail value: $68)

I'll start by stating that, while I didn't not like any of the items that I received in my Stitch Fix, I decided that most of them weren't thrilling enough for me to keep. For example, there was nothing wrong with the salmon-colored tank top from 41Hawthorn, but I already have a tank that's almost exactly the same color and style as this one. (I actually received the older tank in a previous Stitch Fix.) I also liked the skirt, but I decided that I didn't have enough tops with which I could pair it to justify its purchase. Finally, the tote was cute, but I have so many bags already that I don't need another one. I returned everything that you see in this photo.

4. Bessie crochet overlay striped tank from Mystree (retail value: $58). I loved this top, and I ended up buying it. The combination of horizontal stripes and a lace overlay could have looked busy and confusing, but somehow it works. 

5. Jane abstract mini chevron-print belted dress from Skies are Blue (retail value: $58). I liked the style of this dress, as well as the print, but I wasn't a big fan of the color. The white-and-salmon combo didn't look terrible on me, but also didn't really flatter my coloring either. In looking at this photo, I realize that I should have notched the belt a little tighter than I did while wearing it here, but you get the general idea.


Ultimately, this Stitch Fix shipment wasn't a home run, but it wasn't a bust. Like I said previously, I didn't hate anything that I received, and I think that my stylist did a good job of selecting pieces that she thought I'd like. Still, four of the five items just didn't click for me. Oh well, on to August!
