Stitch Fix Review #3

I was so happy with my April Stitch Fix that I decided to get another box in May. I had asked for work clothes as I have a conference coming up in June. Let's see what my stylist Kristin picked out for me.

Stitch Fix Review #3
Styled with: Rocksbox jewelry (Use code sarapbff2 for a free month)

Alice Blue Bullen Swiss Dot Blouse Size XS $54

I really hated this top. It's an off-white color when I prefer true white. It's completely sheer and the sleeves make my shoulders look even broader. The style also had an old lady vibe to me. This was a definite no.

Verdict: Return

Kut from the Kloth Siena Cropped Pant Size 2 $58

I've been looking for olive green pants but the cut on these was all wrong. They were a little tight in the thighs and just generally unflattering. They also wrinkled easily and looked too sloppy for work. It's too bad though--the length was perfect.

Verdict: Return

41Hawthorn Rocco Jersey Faux Wrap Dress Size XS $78

Stitch Fix Review #3
Styled with: Rocksbox jewelry (Use code sarapbff2 for a free month), Steven Flats from Stitch Fix #2

I had asked for a wrap dress. I was thinking a print or color and they sent black. I also wanted short sleeve or sleeveless rather than 3/4 length. This dress was tight in the waist and the fabric was ultra-heavy--too heavy for summer wear.

Verdict: Return

Stitch Fix Review #3

Nine West Xeena Pointed Toe Pump Size 6 $79

Tart Kaylie French Terry Blazer Size XS $128

I was debating back and forth between these last two items. I had asked for closed toe shoes that I could easily walk in as I will be on my feet for most of the conference. These pumps weren't exactly what I was looking for but I fell in love with the cobalt blue color.

I had asked for a white knit blazer and they sent this charcoal one. I was going to send it back as I think this is better suited for fall and winter but the fit was excellent and it was comfortable to wear. The price was on the high side but I won a $50 Stitch Fix credit from Living in Yellow, which made the price more palatable. Ultimately I decided the shoes just weren't comfy enough so I sent them back and kept the blazer. I'm now on the lookout for blue suede shoes though.

Verdict: Return the shoes, Keep the blazer

Although I only kept one item, I was reasonably pleased with this box. To be fair, I had asked for fairly specific things and with the exception of the top, I felt like Kristin did a pretty good job overall.

Linking up with Crazy Together

If you are unaware, Stitch Fix is a clothing subscription service. You fill out a style profile with sizes and preferences, pay a $20 styling fee, and your stylist chooses 5 pieces to send to you. In addition to the clothes you get a personal note and style cards with ideas of how to wear the clothes, a price list, and a postage paid return envelope for whatever you send back. Then you have 3 days to try on the clothes and decide what you want to keep. If you keep at least one item, your $20 styling fee applies toward your purchase, and if you keep all 5 items, you get a 25% discount on the total. You can also choose when to receive your box--whether it's by scheduling automatic deliveries or simply ordering a box when you want one.

This post uses referral links. If you are interested in trying out Stitch Fix and sign up using my link, I receive a $25 credit. This is not a sponsored post--I am a regular subscriber of the service, and I promise to only give my honest opinions of the clothes and the service.

  1. That blazer looks AWESOME! I agree on the other items although the swiss dot blouse looks nice under the blazer. But weird without it. You can find better shirts that will look great both ways.
