Another month, another Stitch Fix review...  

This month marks my 15th Stitch Fix box (you can sign up here if you're interested). I've written the past few months about my issues with Stitch Fix and how they've been working to resolve them. I have the same stylist each month now, which I like. The styles still aren't quite right, but they're getting better. 

Additionally, I upped the price range for items one level to see if I'd get better quality stuff. I'm not quire sure if it's helping or not. I really haven't gotten anything that's been worth the price so far.

The pieces ranged from $48 to $74 each for a total of $322. After the $20 styling fee and 25% discount, the whole box could be purchased for $216.50.

BRIXON IVY Lex Textured Floral Knit Fit & Flare Dress $74 | STATUS: Sent Back

I actually really loved the fit of this dress. I have a hard time finding dresses that fit my top and bottom half properly, which is why I tend to gravitate toward A-line dresses. Even still, they don't always fit right.


This one hugged my curves on top without gaping open and allowed me room to breathe and sit on the bottom.

I even liked the yellow color a lot, too. I checked my closet and I barely own any yellow. However, the dress had a floral gray/silver pattern on it (which you can only see faintly in the photo) that I could not stand.

So, unfortunately, it got sent back. I'd love to see more dresses cut like this in the future though.

Street Level Huron Reversible Magnetic Closure Tote $48 | STATUS: Sent Back

I don't carry a tote outside of the beach, so from a practicality standpoint, this bag wasn't for me.


However, the colors were a little too much for me as well. It's photographing more orange-ish here, but in real life the tote looked very purple and red (it reminded me of the Red Hat Society).

Additionally, it was super difficult to flip in and out. You can tell on the orange side that it looks more square than rectangle - because I could barely flip it! So, all in all, not a tote for me.

I was however glad to see that the pricing was close to retail value. These totes are also available at Nordstrom, and some in other colors are on sale for $35 at GoJane.

BRIXON IVY Lucille Crochet Skirt $74 | STATUS: Sent Back

I liked the idea of this skirt, but not the actual skirt in real life. I know it seems like I complain a lot in these reviews, but if I'm going to spend more than $20 on an item, I want to really love it!


This photographed a little more navy than it was in real life. It was actually closer to a purple color, which I really liked. I do like the see-through hem at the bottom as well.

The fit was just a little too snug for me though and I'm not a fan of crochet anything. So, this skirt got sent back.

Daniel Rainn Holsen Crochet Detail Top $68 | STATUS: Sent Back

First off, let me say I'm not even sure if I'm wearing this shirt correctly. The tank underneath is connected to the top and got all twisted. 


Secondly, a second crochet item in the same box!? I couldn't take it. I made a point in my notes to ask for no more crochet in the future so hopefully that works out.

Crochet aside, I wasn't a huge fan of this top. It was a little more boxy than I like to wear. I have wider hips so I like more fitted items that show off my waist on top.

Daniel Rainn Lorena Split Back Silk Blouse $58| STATUS: Sent Back

Out of all the items, this was the one I was considering keeping the most.


Blue is my favorite color, and this was a beautiful shade!

The blouse fit well throughout the bust and waist area, which was nice, but I felt it was a little too long on me (short torso problems).

The split back also added another level of interest to the blouse, which I really liked.

The material wrinkled pretty easily, as you can see. I don't own anything silk so I'm not sure if that's standard or not.

Overall, I liked the idea of the blouse, but couldn't bring myself to spend $58 on it.
So, that was my 15th box! Tell me what you think about Stitch Fix in the comments below. If you're interested in Stitch Fix, you can sign up here!
