Unboxing // June 2015 Stitch Fix review


Another month, another Stitch Fix review...  

This month marks my 14th Stitch Fix box (you can sign up here if you're interested). Last month, I wrote in a lot of detail about how I haven't been happy with my Stitch Fix service. 

Since then, they've partnered me with a stylist who I'll have every month, gave me a one-month credit, and seem to be taking my feedback to heart. This box was much more my style, but still let me try some new things.

My only issue is still the price. The pieces ranged from $44 to $78 each for a total of $302. After the $20 styling fee and 25% discount, the whole box could be purchased for $211.50.


41Hawthorn Sloane Colorblock A-Line Ponte Shift Dress $78 | STATUS: Sent Back

I rarely (if ever) wear shift dresses, mostly because they never fit me properly (until this one). 


Out of all the shift dresses I tried one, this one might have been the closest, but as you can see in the pictures, it's still pulling a bit across the bottom half.

I really liked the material of this dress though -- it was heavy enough to provide coverage (no VPL), but light enough for summer. 

Ultimately, I wasn't a fan of the colors -- too dark & Fall-ish for me. It reminded me of an elementary school teacher, actually. That, combined with the fit, meant it got sent back.
41Hawthorn Edwin Scarf Print Top $58 | STATUS: Sent Back

I'm not a fan of paisley print and this handkerchief scarf print tank is a little too similar for my tastes.


Also, now that I'm looking at the photos, I'm not a fan of how the blue horizontal stripes cut me across my two widest areas on my top half. It makes me look wider than I really am, I feel.

On the flip side, this material was really smooth and comfy. It wasn't at all see-through, either.

Overall, I just wasn't a fan, especially for the price.
Pixley Brook Dot Print Tie-Waist Top $44 | STATUS: Sent Back

Ugh... Out of all the items in my box this was the one I liked the most, but it didn't quite fit me right.


I've been on quite a 60s/vintage kick lately and this shirt definitely had a retro feel to it.

I have a very (very) short torso (i.e. low rise jeans come up to my bellybutton - no lie). So this "tie-waist" top didn't end anywhere near my waist. In fact, it was almost all the way down to my pants inseam. Because of this, I couldn't get the knot to tie properly.

I mentioned in my item feedback that I really did love this top and would love to get similar, but shorter, styles in the future so hopefully that will happen.
BRIXON IVY Leah Skirt $68 | STATUS: Sent Back

I did like this skirt (and the stylists suggestion to print mix it with the polka dot top). However, I didn't keep it. Mostly because I just bought a skirt almost exactly like this from Target a month ago for only $20.


This one has a longer hem and the fabric has a heavier weight to it. If you're requesting this skirt though, I would recommend going up a size. While the skirt did fit, it was extremely snug around my waist.
Mystree Batya Textured Skirt $54| STATUS: Sent Back

This skirt was just OK to me -- it wasn't bad, but it wasn't great either. I liked the idea of it though, but wasn't 100% fond of the execution.


Word to the wise: This skirt is see-through when you're standing in direct sunlight.

Additionally, the to layer of embroidery (or lace, or crochet, or whatever it is) was a lot stiffer than I expected. The skirt had little to no movement because of it and actually gathered up when you tried to sit.

Overall, it wasn't a hit for me.
So, that was my 14th box! I definitely feel like the style is moving in the right direction. Hopefully it keeps up!
