It’s time for another Stitch Fix Review 🙂  My favorite kind of review to write!

Last month’s fix was just so-so for me.  Nothing fit my style perfectly and I actually ended up, after thinking about it the whole 3 days, sending it all back.

So for May’s Stitch Fix, I asked for all soft, cotton, colorful items.  I have a lot of polyester in my closet and thought it would be nice for a change.

(If you are new to Stitch Fix skip to the end of this post for a short description of the whats and how-tos & for a link to sign up for your own box of happiness!)

As the weather gets warmer, the boxes get smaller, don’t they?  Haha!


When I opened the box up, I was happy to see fun color, patterns, and even textures!  And lots of soft knit.




This box came with 4 tops and a pair of shorts.  3 of the 5 items came directly from my Pinterest board (so definitely make sure you keep your board up-to-date between fixes because I really do think it helps!).


Let’s try on, shall we? 🙂

Item # 1:  Loveappella Earny Swing Knit Top




Out of the box, this was my least favorite item.  The pattern isn’t really me, although I like the length & softness of the top!  After trying it on, I didn’t like it well enough to want to keep it.  Again – not my favorite style/pattern.

Item # 2:  Skies are Blue Gellie Cold Shoulder Knit Top




My first impression of this top was that I loved the colors and cold shoulder detail (my stylist seems to send me a cold should option each box!) but I was sure it would be too short in the torso.  After trying it on, though, it surprised me that it was long enough!  I’m thinking about keeping this one – what do you think?

Item # 3: THML Blaisdell Embroidered Top




I just love everything THML makes….this top is no exception.  I pinned it but made a note at the bottom “I love it but it looks like it might be short” and that is exactly the problem with it.  It’s got great colors, details, etc…the embroidery is beautiful, but it’s just too short in the torso 😦  So sad…it has to go back.

Item # 4: Dear John Finnegan Printed Cuffed Short



Aren’t these shorts so FUN?  I’m in love.  Jennifer (my stylist) recommended pairing them with a gray t-shirt which I did 🙂  But they can go with SO many things.  They are soft and stretchy.  There’s just one problem…they are too big:


When that happens, did you know you can email Stitch Fix at and ask for a size exchange?  If they have the size you are looking for, they will let you exchange it, BUT all sales are final after that (i.e. if the exchange ends up being too small/big, you are stuck with it).

I emailed for a smaller size!  Fingers crossed I can get it 🙂

Item # 5:  Papermoon Almeria Eyelet Cotton Top




Isn’t this a cute top?  I love the eyelet detail and the way the neckline is cut high.  Shockingly, I don’t think it’s too see-through, which was my concern pulling it out of the box.  I’m considering keeping it because I have nothing like this in my closet now.  What do you think?  Keeper?

May was such a fun fix – full of color & softness (thanks to my stylist for listening and sending only cotton items!).  I still have a couple days to decide what I want to keep besides the shorts, so feel free to weigh in & let me know what you love!

  1. I really like everything except the 1st top. I even like the one that you think is too short because I ALWAYS wear a long tank under everything so I would do that & it would totally work. Love your reviews! The top with the cut out shoulders is to die for on you!!!


  2. Clothes look great on you! I wish I had that much luck with stich fix! I’ve already sent 2 shipments back 😦
