Stitch Fix #13

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.)

This was July's Fix.  After June's disappointing box, I was really, really hoping for a good one!  I had requested the same thing as the previous few boxes - easy summer tops (no ironing) that would show off my waist.

The first thing out of the box was Market & Spruce's "Belvedere" Knit Top ($44):

 Yay!!  The fit was great.  I especially loved the v-neck - not too deep, and just the right width.  Jamie said it made him dizzy, but I was really cute under a colored cardigan.  Keeping!

Next up was Renee C's "Naya" Knit Top ($48):
This was just... eh.  I didn't love the big print (the... butterflies? across the bust & tummy?), the cut didn't do anything for me, and the colors were dull.  No, thanks.

My next possibility was the "Shenley" Mesh Detail Knit Top from Loveappella ($48):

This was a great color, and I really loved the mesh detail on the shoulders and upper back!  The material, though, was just too stretchy and it was too tight overall.  I thought about requesting it in a larger size in my next box, but there was no guarantee that the stretchy material would fit me any better in a larger size.  I told Jamie that, if I can get to a point that I have no unwanted lumps & bumps, I may request it again.  For now, it had to go back.

Next up, Market & Spruce's "Elaine" Ikat Print Pocket-Front Knit Shirt ($44):
I was surprised by how much I liked this!  I'm not usually a fan of ikat print, but I really liked this one in the bright pink and navy.  I had a loose, flowy fit, but somehow still had shape, so it wasn't tent-like in the least.  Keeping!

The final shirt was the "Montgomery" Cross Front Knit Top by 41Hawthorn ($48):
Another flattering top! This is ruched on the sides, and the faux-wrap front is high enough that I don't have to wear a cami underneath.  Yay!  Keeping!

I was so happy to get a good box after the previous one.  I kept 3 out of the 5, and really wanted to keep a 4th one.  (I pushed my next box back a few weeks later than scheduled since I was keeping so much).  I thought the stylist, Lauryn, did a great job paying attention to what I had requested, so I asked her to style me for my August box, as well.  That should be arriving in just a few days, and I can't wait to see if she does as well with that one!

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!)
