Stitch Fix Review August 2018……what I kept, what I returned and what you should request!
The end is in SIGHT! This is my last real summer wardrobe request……and I'm already starting to shift to wanting fall pieces. My Stitch Fix box was scheduled to arrive RIGHT before our trip to Walt Disney World and our Disney Cruise……so I wanted tons of great pieces that were perfect for a tropical summer vacation. I asked for shorts, dresses, and fun summer accessories. And I got some PERFECT pieces for a great tropical vacation!
In case you aren’t already familiar with STITCH FIX…….a bit about the service: STITCH FIX is a personalized styling service that sends five pieces (including accessories if you choose)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 (like a conference or vacation). You choose how often you get a fix (for me it’s usually 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.
Splendid Amalina Faux Wrap Maxi Dress (size medium, $198, returned): I had a tough time deciding whether to keep this dress. It fit REALLY well…..but it was just too pricey for me. Plus, I always worry about wardrobe malfunctions with a wrap dress, ha!
Dear John Finnegan Printed Short (size 12, $58, returned): I loved the colors in these shorts, and the fabric was great. The fit was OK, but not great. And to me, that means I probably wouldn't have worn them a TON.
Bujibaja Whimsical Clutch ($68, returned): Isn't this clutch ADORABLE? I loved it so much……but the practical side of me realized I'd probably not get a ton of use out of it. If it had been a little less pricey, I might have kept it….but $68 for a product I'd use once or twice? Didn't make sense for me.
Margaret M Lea Printed Short (size large, $68, returned): I LOVE these shorts, and own them in another print (you can see them HERE). I considered keeping them in this print as well, but felt like I wouldn't wear BOTH that often. But these? A must request for pear shaped bodies. You can pin the image to your own accounts to request from your Stitch Fix stylist. They come in a TON of prints!
Lost + Wander Larsen Embroidered Off The Shoulder Midi Dress (size medium, $88, kept): I was prepared to not love this dress. It looked OK on the hanger. And normally I don't love dresses that require a lining. But it fits like a DREAM. It's light and airy and perfect for even into early fall with a jean jacket over it. I love it and I'm SO glad I kept it!
