Stitch Fix Review August 2016: What I loved, what I’m keeping, and what you should request (plus a giveaway)!
Sniff, tear……this is my last Stitch Fix review of the summer. Yup, as I filled out my feedback and packed up the items I was returning…..I realized my next Stitch Fix delivery will arrived once school is in session. Did that change what I’ll be requesting for next month? YUP. I let my stylist know I wanted casual work separates……and gave some specifics (dolman tops, light blouses that hit at the hip, colored pants, and dresses that are elementary school teacher appropriate).
If you read last week’s post about what to do when you don’t LOVE your Stitch Fix…..then you know my Stitch Fix Review for August is going to be a bit mixed. There were pieces I loved, and pieces that made me scratch my head a bit!
In case you aren’t already a Stitch Fix nut…….a bit about the service: Stitch Fix is a personalized styling service that sends five pieces to your doorstep. The great thing? When you join, you fill out an extensive styling profile. You can request certain items or even ask for options for a specific event. You choose how often you get a fix (for me it’s once a month). In the comfort of your own home, you try on all items. Then you keep what you love, and send back the rest…..and all with free shipping! There is a $20 styling fee, but you can use that $20 as a credit towards any of the items you keep. And YES, you can set a price range you feel comfortable with.
Stitch Fix Review August 2016
Wisp Sheree Dress ($108): This dress. I seriously couldn’t love it anymore. The print, the cut. It’s amazingly flattering, and I love the bright colors. I can wear it now with sandals, and in the fall with booties and a jean jacket. I kept it ( and it takes a LOT for me to keep anything that costs more than $100)!
Fun2Fun Kaur Dolman Sleeve Top ($48): I wanted to love this top. But somehow, it was all wrong on me. It was a little too short, and I wasn’t in love with the print. It went back, I’m sure someone will love it….it just wasn’t for me.
Market & Spruce Kristah Ruffle Knit Blazer ($78): Disclaimer, I am NOT a blazer person. I know, as a teacher….you totally picture me wearing blazers. I think my stylist did too. And, I think they’re a great year round staple. Somehow, I’ve bought a couple over the years and they never get worn. I will say, this one fit like a dream and had the cutest ruffles on the back. If I was a blazer person…..I totally would have kept it.
Loveappella Tavares Knit Top ($48): I love stripes. And this striped top is totally my style. In fact, I have it in another color. And I own something VERY similar from another brand. If I didn’t own about a million striped tops, I would have kept this one.
DV8 Darma Fringe Ankle Strap Sandal ($65): Orange is the perfect color for transitioning to fall. And I could totally see wearing these sandals with dresses now, and a pencil skirt once the weather cools down a bit. But, I’m on sandal overload. I have so many pairs of sandals, that I just couldn’t justify keeping one more pair.
