Favorite time of the season – Stitch Fix review time! I received my box on Friday (and even did a Periscope of the live unboxing, crazy!) and now it’s time for me to share my goods and what I kept/sent back.
I will fully admit something – I’m horrible about surprises. So, as soon as I see that my Fix has shipped, I always log in and go to the checkout page to sneak peek at what I’m going to be receiving. And I will admit, when I saw the list, I was a bit nervous. And I think I had good reason to be, but I think I know why, as soon as I opened the note, I saw that my usual Stylist, Amanda, was on vacation this month. Her sub did a reasonably good job, but I can understand now why I was less than enthused with this Fix. On to the goods.
Skies Are Blue Sia Embroidery Peasant Top:
I love the embroidery detail in this top, it’s lovely. This is a unique piece and it’s lightweight and would transition well to Fall. In the end though, I just couldn’t see what I would wear this with so it ended up as a thumbs down. VERDICT – RETURNED
Creative Commune Glenlea V-Neck Blouse:
I loved the colors in this top, definitely are hues that I enjoy, but it was just way too flowy and thin and well, like a maternity top for me. So this was a no go as well. VERDICT – RETURNED
Collective Concepts Cerritos Tie Neck Blouse:
Again, love the colors and I will admit to being mildly surprised by this top, when I read in my sneak peek I was getting a tie neck blouse, I assumed it was going to be some horrible eighties style bow tie type thing. This is definitely not that at all. But, it just felt like a muumu on me, I didn’t like how long it was and again, just too flowy feeling. VERDICT-RETURNED
Market and Spruce Lauderdale Knit Cardigan:
I actually really did like this cardigan, it’s super soft, nice and lightweight for layering and it’s a great color that will go with a lot of things. And that’s the problem, I have a cardigan identical to this one in this exact color, so I couldn’t justify having two. VERDICT – RETURN
Margaret M Emer Jacquard Print High Waisted Cropped Pant:
Oh my God these pants. They are amazing. They pull on like leggings and are SO comfy and I didn’t want to take them off. However once again, super similar to another pair I already own and the price tag on these was definitely a bit on the stiff side and I just couldn’t justify it. Sad panda. VERDICT – RETURNED
Yes you read that right. I returned my entire box. This is a first. I have always found at least one thing worth keeping in each of my Fixes, so this was a bit of a heartbreak for me that I was sending everything back. I am certainly not blaming my substitute stylist, but I’m feeling she just didn’t quite understand my style preferences the way my normal gal does. I’m not breaking up with Stitch Fix even after one bad box, I went ahead and scheduled another one before Fall is over to give it another try. So, we’ll see if the next one is better! What do you think – did I make the right decision in sending everything back?
