I’m really glad I stretched these out because this box was a home run too just like the last one:) While this is affordable, I’m not sure my budget can handle a full box more often than every few months and if Gillian keeps hitting it out of the park that’s what we’re looking at.
So, before we get on to the fashion show, a little about Stitch Fix. Stitch Fix is a personal styling service. You fill out a style profile online, schedule your fix and wait for the package of goodies!! Try everything on in the comfort of your own home and keep only what you want. Use the pre-paid envelop to mail back the rest (if anything!!) and that’s it.
A few details:
- There’s a $20 styling fee, which is used towards your order
- If you keep all 5 items you receive 25% off your order.
- You choose your price range.
- The more feedback you give to your stylist, the better your fixes get over time. So be sure to be very specific to your stylists so that they can send you things you’ll love. I highly suggest hooking up your Pinterest style board to your profile as well.
Lastly, if you want to sign up use this link. (Full disclosure, I get a referral bonus if you use that link. You can too once you’re signed up and share with your friends!)
Now, on to the fashion show. I actually broke out the tripod and tried to do these myself. You’ll see my little helpers in there periodically because it seems that the only time I can get them to sit for a picture is the only time I would rather they occupy themselves otherwise.
#1 Level 99 Andrea Abstract Print Linen Shorts
I wasn’t real sure about these out of the box but once I found a shirt (which is horribly wrinkled) and the shoes I really started to dig it. Not something I would have bought for myself but that’s why I love Stitch Fix – they open you up to new ideas and styles.
#2 and #3 Honey Punch Sifaya Chevron Print Dress and Street Level Juno Small Folded Clutch
I LOVE this dress. Stress L-O-V-E!! It fits perfectly and can be dressed up or down. I had flat sandals and my Lisa Leonard necklace on for dinner the other night and it was perfectly casual. In the pic I switched to heels, a dressier necklace and the hot coral clutch and it would be appropriate for a date night or a night out with the girls.
#4 Sweet Rain Adriann Racerback Hi-Lo Floral Dress
This is a little more romantic than I normally wear but it fits well and was so pretty on that I just had to keep it. It’s got a cool short liner with the longer chiffon over top. Paired with a pair of gladiator sandals (which I don’t actually have…) it would be perfect for a Saturday afternoon out or add my normal platform sandals and it works for an evening out too.
#5 Renee C Francisco Crochet Detail Tank
This was the only one that I did not love when I put it on. The cut was nice but the material is so light and skin colored that I struggled. However, my opinion has been changed. I put a pink tank under it and paired it with my Navy shorts and it actually worked really nicely. Not one of those shirts that goes with anything but with the right thing it’s cute.
So that’s it! I asked Gillan for shorts this time around and she delivered. This next fix I’ve asked for a skirt instead of a dress (or along with a dress) so we’ll see what they come up with. My next fix isn’t until September so I’ll have a bit of a wait (but the skirt will be a fallish skirt I hope!)
One thing to think about, if you’re on the fence – Stitch Fix is great if you have an event coming up and need something to wear. Just tell them what the event is and what look you’re thinking about wearing (formal? casual? beach wedding? cocktail party?) and let them style you! I think I may do that for a Nov/Dec fix so I have something for the work Christmas party.
