Another month, another Stitch Fix review...  

This month marks my 16th Stitch Fix box (you can sign up here if you're interested). I've noticed in the past few boxes since I've been working with the same stylist that the items I'm getting are more in line with my sense of style.

I did like a lot of the pieces in this box and considered keeping a few, but the one I really wanted actually had a flaw. The others, I just couldn't bring myself to pay the price. 

I know I've mentioned this a lot in my reviews, but it is true - I rarely spend more than $20-$30 for any item. If I do, it's usually because the item is already on sale and there's a slim chance my size will still be available if I keep waiting for it to go further down.

The past few months I had bumped the price per item  up in my profile hoping I'd get better quality items, but I'm not sure if that's really the case. The prices have all been really similar to what I got when I had selected "the cheaper, the better."

The pieces ranged from $54 to $58 each for a total of $278. After the $20 styling fee and 25% discount, the whole box could be purchased for $188.50.


Pixley Hanneli Polka Dot Swing Skirt $54| STATUS: Sent Back

This was the skirt I really wanted to keep. I think it's fun, it's flirty, it had a good length so it could still be professional in the office.


It's actually more of a navy color, though it looks almost black in the photo. The fit was very good & true to size.

There were a few spots on the skirt though where the blue ran into the white or the white ran into the blue. 

If they had been smaller and less noticeable, I might have considered keeping it. But I saw them immediately after pulling it out of the box. 

For the price of the skirt & the flaws, I sent it back.
Collective Concepts Esten Button-Up Sleeveless Blouse $54 | STATUS: Sent Back

This was a pretty standard sleeveless tank. It would have been good for work and the color was very pretty.


It fit true to size and wasn't sheer at all, as you can see here. 

I don't really have a whole lot to say about it because it was just like any other sleeveless tank you'd find.

Again, for the price, I know I could find something similar for less at Target, New York & Co., etc.
Skies Are Blue Elle Floral Print Fit & Flare Dress $58 | STATUS: Sent Back

Ryan really liked the look & pattern on this dress and thought I should keep it.


I liked the color and pattern (it was kind of a floral scribbly pattern). The fit was a little snug for me around the waist, but fit well on my top & bottom half.

My biggest hang-up on the dress was the material. For one, it was super thin and I worried about it being sheer. 

And also, it had a really weird feeling to it. It reminded me of those faux "silk" PJs you got as a kind that had that kind of sheen to it. 

As an adult woman, I just feel a little too pre-school in this dress.


41Hawthorn Astrid Tie Neck Blouse $54 | STATUS: Sent Back

I got another sleeveless blouse in this box. I liked this one as well, but again, I have a very similar style from Target that I got for almost half the price.


Neckties always worry me -- if placed wrong they drag your whole shirt down, which was the case with this one.

I liked the black & white clover-like patter on the blouse though.
Gilli Morgan Swing Skirt $58 | STATUS: Sent Back

I also got a second skirt in the box. I liked this one a lot as well, but, again, couldn't bring myself to pay the price.


Unlike the first skirt, which has a zipper & clasp closure, this one was elastic & pulled right up. I find those types of skirts tend to shift around during the day and need more adjustment than others.

The skirt is mostly white colored with black stripes. I'm a sucker for a good stripe, but white on bottom makes me nervous: 
1. because darker colors on bottom slim you. 
2. I spill a lot of stuff, sit in stuff, generally am a clumsy person.
So, that was my 16th 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!
