May Stitch Fix Review
It’s Stitch Fix time once again! There are 2 items that I’m still undecided about at this time and I’d love any input you can offer!
Last year I decided to join Stitch Fix for a number of reasons. Mostly because I don’t like shopping (but I loooooove cute clothes) and I tend to be a hard size to shop for. If you are a difficult size, too, I know you get me on this. Grrrr, isn’t it so frustrating when you are trying to shop and nothing fits – no wonder I dislike shopping so much!
Anyway, I got rid of 95% of my closet and decided from here on out, I’m only keeping a minimal amount of pieces, ones that I absolutely love and are a 10 out of 10 for me. I’ve been using Stitch Fix to build my seasonal wardrobes and it’s been a blast! Having a personal stylist shop for me and then getting a surprise package in the mail…and the stuff actually fits?! What a fun treat it has been over the past year! Plus I haven’t had to go shopping or set foot in a mall at all! Woo 🙂
What is Stitch Fix?
If you are wondering what in the heck is Stitch Fix, let me tell you! With Stitch Fix, you get a surprise box complete with 5 handpicked clothing and/or accessories picked out just for you from your very own personal stylist. You get to keep only what you want (for me it has to be a 10 out of 10!) and you can send back whatever you don’t want in the postage paid envelope. You can schedule a Fix whenever you want – no monthly commitments or anything like that. For those wondering about the cost, it is affordable. The clothes are definitely more expensive than Target, but about equal to what you would expect at a department store.

May Stitch Fix
My May Fix showed up and I could tell it was going to be a good one right out of the box. Look at all those pretty colors 🙂
So let’s take a closer look! Here’s what was in my May Fix….
Skies are Blue Topanga Crochet Detail Flutter Sleeve Blouse
I saw this top on Pinterest and immediately fell in love. The fun, flirty flutter sleeves and the adorable crochet detailing were details that I absolutely adored and were totally my style.
I thought this top would be the perfect staple piece to add to my spring and summer closet so I pinned it. I’m so glad my stylist decided to send it to me! I think it would look so cute with any color jeans/pants and would also look great dressed up a bit more and paired with a skirt.
VERDICT: KEEPING! LOVE!
Kut From The Kloth Siena Capri Pant
I have to admit, when I first opened up my box and saw that these were capris, I was disappointed. I definitely love the coral color (one of my favs!), but I am a petite pear shape. Capris just aren’t flattering for that combination, or at least not for me. But Stitch Fix always recommends you try everything on, even if you don’t think you’ll like it. So I did. And I was pleasantly surprised.
They fit me kind of like ankle pants, not capris. I thought the looser, more relaxed fit made my thighs and backside look slimmer, too (woo!). And they are so lightweight! Plus this coral color goes with a lot in my closet – navy, blues, yellows look so good with it. In fact, my stylist recommended these capris for every top that she sent in this Fix! And to my surprise, they really did work with each one.
I really like these pants, but am questioning the length since they are technically supposed to be capris. Do they look like a weird length, like my pants are too short? Or can I get away with this? Thanks for any opinions you can give – I really appreciate it 🙂
VERDICT ON PANTS: Undecided! Help!
Olive & Oak Arynn Tie-Back Chevron Print Tank
A little confession: I always peek at my Fix before I actually get it. You see, when Stitch Fix emails you to let you know your package shipped, you can do a little detective work. With the help of google, you can peek at what you are going to get. I know, I know! That totally ruins the surprise, but I can’t help it – the suspense just kills me. Everytime I get sent the Stitch Fix shipped email, I tell myself not to peek, but I always end up peeking. The struggle is real 🙂
Anyway, I saw that I was getting a chevron shirt and my first reaction was, “ugh, chevron. I am so over chevron.” But then I got it in person, and wouldn’t you know, it ended up being my favorite piece out of the Fix at first glance. I was totally drawn to the bright, refreshing colors and thought it was absolutely adorable, chevron and all. I don’t like heavy fabrics so the lightweight fabric of this shirt was so nice! Because it’s so lightweight, it would be perfect for hot summer days.
My stylist suggested pairing it with the coral capris she sent. It is definitely a cute outfit, but I couldn’t help thinking that it might look even better with the white denim I got from my last August Fix.
As adorable as this shirt is, I really don’t think it’s a quite a 10 for me. Maybe a 9, which makes it a tough decision. I keep going back and forth whether I want to keep it or not, which should be my sign to let it go – it’s obviously not a 10, right? Bummer! I might regret sending this fun, colorful summer top back, but it just seems a bit too flowy/shapeless for me.
VERDICT: Still a bit undecided, but am really leaning towards sending it back. Should I change my mind?
Daniel Rainn Hal Crew Neck Blouse
This was my husband’s favorite piece from the Fix. I loved it, too. The bright blue was such a pretty and flattering color. But it was too big, especially around the arm holes. Plus I already received a top very similar from Stitch Fix last winter, which I adore:
I don’t need 2 blue spring/summer tops that basically serve the same purpose. I was so happy to see that this bright blue and coral pair so nicely together though. What a pretty color combination, right?! If I keep the coral pants, I’m happy to know that I can pair my already owned Stitch Fix shirt with the coral capris!
VERDICT: SENDING BACK
Collective Concepts Tori Scoop Neck Blouse
When I first saw this top, I wasn’t a fan. I didn’t care for the pattern and it’s not really my style at all. I think it would probably be super cute on some people that maybe have that boho vibe going on, but it’s just not me. I tried it on, regardless, but it didn’t get any better. This one is an easy decision— sending back!
VERDICT: SENDING BACK
Well, that’s it for this time around! I really love the flutter sleeve shirt and now just have to decide about the coral “capris” and chevron top. I’d be so grateful for any input! You guys always help me out so much and I am so grateful for you!
