Stitch Fix Unboxing: Hello Summer

With summer in full spring, my wardrobe is in need of an update. I asked my Stitch Fix stylist to send me trendy pieces to get me through these hot and humid days.

How Stitch Fix Works

  1.  Fill out a style profile and share your likes and dislikes with your stylist. I recommend putting together a Pinterest board.
  2. Schedule your box. They can be sent to you automatically or you can schedule a box one at a time.
  3. Pay $20 when your box is styled.
  4. Get excited while you wait for your box.
  5. Open your box and try on everything your stylist sends you.
  6. Decide what to keep and what to send back. (You have 3 days to do this.)
  7. Share your thoughts at checkout so your stylist has a better idea of what to send you next time.
  8. Send back any pieces you don’t want. (Shipping is free!)

Inside Fix #5

For Stitch Fix #5, my stylist sent me cute and trendy pieces to update my wardrobe for summer. Here's what I was sent and what I thought...

1. Statement Maggie Crochet Trim Tank Top – $54

I really like chambray, but this top didn’t do it for me. The cut was too boxy, and for the price, I figured I could find something better.

Verdict: Sent back.

2. Alice Blue Jessicka Ruffle Cold Shoulder Blouse – $38

I was on the fence about this flirty, cold shoulder top. Pastels are not my favorite, so I decided to pass, although I really like the way the blouse looks in pictures…

Verdict: Sent back.

3. Jella C Penner Tie Front Top – $34

I really like plaid, so I had to have this tie front top, which is the perfect plaid top for summer. Funnily enough, this was, also, my stylist’s top pick for me.

Verdict: Kept.

4. Velvet Heart Gladys Denim Skirt – $44

I had asked my stylist for a denim skirt, but I should have been more specific as I was looking for a button-down, a-line skirt. While this skirt is cute, it felt a little boxy, so I ended up getting a denim skirt at Gap.

Verdict: Sent back.

5. Report Footwear Gladiator Sandal – $49

These sandals are so cute but too big. I was very sad to have to send these back. I really wish shoe sizes were standardized because a size 6 could be a 36 EU or 36.5 EU or something else entirely. Now, I’m on the lookout for another pair of gladiator sandals.

Verdict: Sent back.

Thoughts on Stitch Fix #5…

For Stitch Fix #5, my stylist sent me cute and trendy pieces to update my wardrobe for summer. Here's what I was sent and what I thought...

In my note to my stylist, I asked for trendy pieces to update my summer wardrobe – gingham tops, embroidered tunics, off the shoulder or cold shoulder tops, a chambray button down, and a denim skirt. I, also, mentioned that I really liked boho looks.

At first glance, Stitch Fix #5 was disappointing because these pieces are decidedly not boho and the tops all felt very similar. However, I do think the pieces I received fit my overall style, and I love the plaid tie front top. One of the problems with Stitch Fix, is that it’s not a true styling service in the sense that your stylist will hunt down exactly what you are looking for (see using Stitch Fix for an event) and general requests can be interpreted in many different ways.

While I like using Stitch Fix from time to time, I don’t feel like I’ve ever received the perfect fix. So far, I have not wanted to keep all five pieces, which is great for my wallet, I guess. Of course, I’ve, also, read that fixes become more personalized the more you use the service, and my occasional fixes may be getting in the way of finding the perfect fix.

Still, I look forward to getting my fix in the mail and will keep using this service because I have discovered some of my favorite pieces this way.

  1. I always love the days when my Stitch Fix arrives! Just wore a piece last night. That tie front top is cute and so is the cold shoulder one! Great fix!

  2. Ah, that’s a bit annoying that you only like one enough to keep. I love the idea of this but I imagine it could get quite expensive.

  3. I always love seeing what people get in these boxes. So fun! I like the pastel shirt on you, but you have to stay true to yourself. Bummer about the shoe size. I do wish they were more standard too.

  4. That’s too bad about the cold-shoulder top–that looks so adorable on you! But I know what you mean… sometimes if you’re looking for a specific style (aka, boho–always my favorite!) you tend to want items that reflect this. Hopefully the next box is a better fit!

  5. Bummer that there are so many misses, but hopefully the more you use the service, the better they will get to know what you like. That plaid tie-up top is super cute!

  6. I would have had to keep that plaid top, too! It is super cute. I actually LOVE that skirt, I love the fringe on the bottom of it. I look forward to seeing the skirt you picked up instead of it, though!

  7. I love stitch fix, every time you do an unboxing I always kick myself for not being a member. I love it when you make videos, that ruffle cold shoulder blouse is pretty darn cute.

  8. No surprise that I love the peach pastel top with the frilly sleeves, but I can see how the plaid tie top is a better fit for your style and wardrobe. I think it has a lot of potential for remixing come fall as well. I’m getting closer and closer to trying StitchFix since I see they’ve added plus sizes, and I have tried one of their competitors. Thanks for sharing your ongoing experience!
