Stitch Fix #12

Stitch Fix is a personal shopper service that I've enjoyed for a while now.  (I hate shopping for clothes for myself!)  You pay a $20 styling fee for each Fix, and 5 items are sent to you.  You can request certain kinds of items, and they're sent based on a sizing & style profile that you fill out beforehand.  You can even request a certain price range for each type of item ("as cheap as possible" for jewelry, $50-$100 for pants, etc).  The $20 is applied to anything you purchase from your Fix, and if you buy the entire box you get a 25% discount.  (If you don't buy anything, you lose the $20.)

I'm behind on posting my Fixes.  This one came back in June.  I also have July's to post, and just got notified that my August Fix has shipped!

For Fix #12 I had the same request I've had for the last few boxes - easy summer tops (no ironing) that would show off my waist.

The first one up was Market & Spruce's "Corinna" Striped Dolman Top ($48):

This was just okay.  The bottom half didn't fit well, the sleeves were a bit tight (and too long for a summer top), and it was a bit itchy.  Usually I like dolman tops on me, but this was a "no."

Next, the "Walli" Knit Tank from Skies are Blue ($48):
This was a big, fat "no" since it made me look big and fat.  Uh-uh.  A tent-like shirt is the furthest thing from "showing off my waist."

Next, I tried on Market & Spruce's "Nolen" Printed Detail Henley Tank ($54):
(Sorry for the blurry pics!)  The detail on this was really pretty, and I loved the colors.  The collar, though, was very, very stiff, and the knit material was so thin and stretchy that it was not flattering on my bum.  I would have kept it, though, had it not been for the uncomfortable collar.  And the price tag.  I didn't want to look down while wearing it because it kept poking my jaw.  Sending it back.

Next was Papermoon's "Marisol" Mixed Material Knit Top ($44):
This was so cute from the back (loved the polka dots!), but it didn't work from the front.  The material was so thin that I had to wear a cami underneath and, though the picture may not completely show, really hung in an unflattering way.  Reluctantly saying "no."

Last up was Pixley's "Evo" Multi-Stripe Knit Henley Top ($48):
I loved the stripes and the tabbed sleeves, but what were they thinking?  The button front is fake.  So those buttons pulling at the bust can't be opened - they're just there pulling.  Why??  And the cream color didn't work well with the other colors; it really washed me out.  Nope.

So this box ended up being a disappointment.  I kept nothing, and lost my $20 styling fee.  (Luckily, next month was better!  That post - my July box - will be coming in the near future!)

If you'd like to try Stitch Fix for yourself, I'd love for you to use my referral link.  (If you order a Fix, I get credit to my account!)
