July 2014 Stitch Fix Review

I am so excited about today’s Stitch Fix review! No, there’s no recipe. But please don’t let that scare you off! Today is all about the clothes! Another of my great loves. ๐Ÿ™‚

I have loved the concept of Stitch Fix ever since I first saw it, it just took me a while to finally do it. My friend, Ashley from Spoonful of Flavor, finally convinced me with her awesome reviews and the super cute stuff she was wearing at BlogHer Food in May – ALL from Stitch Fix!

So I finally signed up, and I’m sharing it all with you! The hubs even took pictures of me in everything – eek! I have loved reading others’ reviews so much, I’ve been dying to share mine with you. I hope you think it’s as fun as I do!

So what is Stitch Fix?

Well, basically it’s like having your own personal stylist. But better.

More specifically though, it’s a monthly subscription (although you can set it to every other month too). When you sign up, you fill out a profile where you specify all kinds of things like sizes, price, shapes and styles you prefer, colors and patterns you prefer. You can make a pinterest board and link to that so that your stylist can get a feel for what you like. You basically want to provide as much detail as you can so that they can pick stuff to match your style.

Then you pick a date to have your box arrive. You’ll get 5 pieces. It can be clothing and accessories. You pay $20 a month to receive the box and if you decide to keep stuff, the $20 goes towards the purchase of your items. If you keep everything, you get 25% off – score! Plus, if there’s a month that’s not so good and you don’t want a box, you can turn it off for a month – no penalty.

Once you get your box, you have 3 days to try everything on and decide what to keep. This part is my favorite, obviously. They even give you an awesome card that has suggestions on what to pair the items with!

The July Stitch Fix Guide to Styling Laid Out on a Picnic Table

I loved trying every on! I am a shopper. I love it. But recently I feel like the stuff I find in stores is kind of, well, boring. And it’s all the same. And when I do find something unique, everyone else loved it too and my size is gone. AND maybe I love something, but I’m not sure what I have in my closet that will go with it. Well Stitch Fix has solved that problem. They can send super cute, unique things and you get to try everything on with the stuff in your closet. I tried everything on with different bottoms, shoes, jewelry, you name it! It’s dress up for adults. ๐Ÿ™‚

Once you’ve decided what to keep, you return the items you don’t want by putting them in the prepaid mailing bag that comes in the box and put it right in the mailbox! You can give them feedback on what you liked and didn’t like to help them send even better stuff in the next box.

Stitch Fix Try-On & Review

It’s an absolutely BRILLIANT concept! I’m 100% in love! So let’s look at what they sent in my first box:

1. Wilam Zig-Zag Print Top from Chris & Carol – $44

I loved this top. It fit well. I love the colors and chevron pattern. The only problem is that I not only have a lot of chevron already, but I also have a lot of this peachy color as well. If it’d been different colors or another pattern, I might have kept it, but instead I sent it back.

2. Ivy Chevron Print Tab-Sleeve Blouse from 41Hawthorne – $48

Also loved this one. I’m totally into this type of top right now and I liked that this one had kind of a v-neck (I think they make me look skinnier ๐Ÿ˜‰ ). It fit well and I thought it’d be good even into fall with the little longer sleeve. But I had the same issue as the first – similar color and pattern. That being said, I almost kept it. Then I decided I’d rather wait for something a little different. Decisions, decisions.

3. Felicia Floral Crochet Fit and Flare Dress from Mystree – $78

I fell in love with this dress as soon as I pulled it out of the box. It’s totally different from anything that I have and exactly something I’d love. Like, perfect. I adore lace and I loved the big and different lace of this. The only thing I wasn’t totally sure about was again, I prefer a little more of a neckline – v-neck, scoop neck, something. I also normally like a little more length. But I overlooked both of those things because I wanted to dance around like a little girl in it.

AND, when the hubs was taking the pictures, he stopped right in the middle to walk towards me and take some close ups. I was all “what are you doing?!” and he gave me that look that says he thinks I’m beautiful and said that that picture was for him. If this dress has that kind of power of him, how could I send it back?! ๐Ÿ™‚

4. Dita Colorblock Sleeveless Ponte Dress from 41Hawthorne – $78

This dress surprised me a bit. When I first saw it, I wasn’t sure how I’d feel. The material is a little heavy (rayon fabric) and while I like the colors and generally like color blocking, I wasn’t sure I’d find it flattering on me.

When I put it on, I liked it more than I expected, but still didn’t feel like it really did much to flatter me. Plus, both dress were sleeveless and had the same neckline. I’d rather another dress with some little sleeves maybe. I did like the length of this one a little better though.

5. Wintor Crystal Gem Bracelet from Pixley – $38

This bracelet is seriously beautiful. Every time I see the picture, I wonder if I should have kept it. But I’m really more of a silver gal, despite gold being so on trend right now. Also, I don’t dress up a ton and this felt a little dressy to me. Plus, I tend to be more into necklaces and earrings. So sadly, I sent it back.

So that’s it! I kept the Felicia Floral Crochet Fit and Flare Dress from Mystree, and sent the rest back. Everything fit pretty well – which really surprised me for my first box. I can’t wait to see my next one! They must be super busy, because I won’t get my next box until the beginning of September. How will I wait that long?!

    HI! You looked awesome in your Stitch Fix. I hope to try it soon. Personal question that you do not have to answer but I notice on some Stitch Fix posts people are also listing the sizes. I think that is so helpful then if we pin the selection, we can guess if we need a bigger or smaller size based on whether you felt it was true to size. Just a thought.

    1. lifeloveandsugar@gmail.com

      Great suggestion Sharee! Thanks for the feedback. I think most of my sizing in the past for dressed and tops is either a small or medium, if that helps with this particular fix. ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Laura

    I have to say my first box is waiting for me at home and I only hope what I get is as cute as all the stuff you received!

    The Felicia Floral Crochet Fit and Flare Dress does look awesome on you!

  3. Julie @ This Gal Cooks

    Isn’t Stitch Fix so much fun?! I really like both dresses as well as the bracelet! But I’m like you – I’m more of a silver gal. I also liked the chevron shirt. Haha, I had the same problem with one of my fixes. I received this cardigan that I REALLY liked but it was in coral color and I already have 2 coral colored cardigans so it went back.

    Can’t wait to see what you get in your next fix. Now I need to get on the ball and do the post for the fix I got 2 weeks ago. Haha!

    1. lifeloveandsugar@gmail.com

      Thanks Julie! It’s so hard to decide – I really did like everything. They do a great job! I can’t wait to see your stuff!

  4. Jocelyn @BruCrew Life

    How fun!!! That dress with the pink band is my favorite for sure. It looks adorable on you and the neckline is perfect for fun, funky necklaces!!

  5. Ashley | Spoonful of Flavor

    You received a great first fix! I love the dress you picked and everything else looked great on you too! I can’t wait to see what you get next.

    First – love your blog!!
    Second – I got my first fix last week! I loved it, it was like Christmas morning. Oddly enough we received the same bracelet – and had the same thought. I’m a silver girl too. I kept one item and set up my next fix! I love this service.

    1. lifeloveandsugar@gmail.com

      Thank you, I’m so glad you like the blog Niki! Stitch Fix totally felt like Christmas morning! I loved it! How funny that we got the same bracelet – glad I don’t seem crazy for only wanting silver. ๐Ÿ™‚

  7. Mandy @ Mandy's Recipe Box

    Super cute! I loved them all on you. It’s so hard to send stuff back. Sweet hubby you have, by the way ๐Ÿ™‚
