July Stitch Fix (Fix #2)
I received my second Stitch Fix box in the mail on July 2 (3 days ahead of schedule!). They did a great job this time. In fact, I almost kept everything except a few of the pieces weren’t quite perfect.
I received a lot of questions from friends and family members after my last post asking about what Stitch Fix is and how it works.
Stitch Fix is a personal styling service. When you sign up, you fill out a detailed style profile about your sizes and tastes. For $20, you receive a box with 5 items. You don’t have to sign up for a regular subscription of any kind — just have Stitch Fix send you the box when you feel like it! If you like the items, you can buy them. If you don’t like the items, you can send them back. You can pick and choose which pieces you keep, and the $20 styling fee is applied to the price of the items.
I’m really enjoying it so far. Stitch Fix has sent me a bunch of items that I would not have picked out for myself, but that actually looked pretty good on me or encouraged me to explore a new brand that I hadn’t heard of before.
Without further adieu, here’s what was in my second box:
Carson Front-Twist Sleeveless Blouse
I love the orange color, but I’m not really into the drapey-ness of the blouse. Stitch Fix keeps sending me drapey tops (maybe because I told them I didn’t want to show my midriff?). I left some feedback so hopefully I stop receiving loose tops. The top is only held together in front by 3 stitches; it seemed at risk for wardrobe malfunction at the slightest tug. Sending it back.
Johnny Skinny Jeans
These jeans are great. The denim feels thick and expensive and I (somewhat surprisingly) like the dark wash. I love that the inseam is short enough that I can wear them with flats. They actually remind me of the jeans I received in my last fix, minus the accents plus back pockets. So good job Stitch Fix for taking my feedback from my last fix into account. Keeping ’em.
Aislinn Honeycomb Collar Necklace
I love this necklace. I wouldn’t have normally picked it out for myself but it totally works. I don’t have a lot of chunkier pieces so this will be a great addition to my jewelry box. It’s chunky but not too chunky. Keeping it.
Saiara Sleeveless Dress
This gray and black dress was a little too big in the bust. I can see why they chose it for me — it is reminiscent of some Herve Leger dresses that I like a lot. The fabric seems to wrinkle easily, so I was thinking it would not be great for riding public transportation because it would wrinkle on the hour ride to work. It’s hard to tell because this photo was taken from the side, but from the front, the placement of the side stripes didn’t really do anything to accentuate my figure. The price was also a little steep so it’s going back.
Deena Abstract Print Belted Wrap Dress
This jersey dress is great — perfect for hot summers in the city! It’s hard to tell in the photo, but it’s actually navy and white. I thought it was black when I first tried it on because it was dark and stormy out the afternoon that I received it. At first I was wary because it is a wrap dress, but once it’s on, it is so cute! Definitely keeping it.
