It’s time for another Stitch Fix Review This month I have a treat for you because I was able to open my box with my best friend, Jennifer, when she opened her box! So this is a 2 for 1 review!
Last month’s fix was great, full of color & summery items. I kept the amazing floral shorts, after getting one size smaller, and LOVE them. I’ve worn them many times this past month.
So for June’s Stitch Fix, I asked for two things: a cargo jacket and a replacement Market & Spruce HiLo T-shirt. I bought my previous HiLo shirt off a SF Facebook group and it snagged badly enough, I needed another. I love that shirt and was happy to buy it again!
(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!)
My box came & I had to wait 5 whole days to open it since I was traveling to see my friend & was waiting to open my box with her. #torture
But before I knew it – I had 2 boxes to review!
We are the same size (bonus!) so we got to try on our box’s items and then each other’s items, just for FUN.
My fix is on the left (YELLOW!) and her’s is on the right. My amazing stylist, also named Jennifer, sent me both of the items I requested – YAY!
My friend Jennifer’s fix included a couple pairs of shorts (which she asked for) and some tops with short sleeves. She wanted top that were summery but not tank tops.
We had just a blast trying on our items with each other. It was like shopping together at home. We snuck our style session in while our babies napped 🙂
Jennifer’s item’s were:
She had a pair of black shorts already and wasn’t really needing these. If you remember, I was also sent these in a previous fix and didn’t love them either.
The top was fun, but boxy, and she didn’t like the cut.
The black top was nice, but made of heavy material that was very warm, almost like a flannel blanket. Definitely not summery. And the shorts were her favorite item sent – great color and fit, but just a little big in the waist. She didn’t want to go down a size because she was afraid they would be too tight in every place but the waist then.
This top was interesting – it was super long (which I liked when I tried it on) but it was clingy in places that didn’t flatter much. It was a great color, just not a super great fit.
Ultimately, my friend Jennifer sent her whole box back. She would have kept the coral shorts if the fit hadn’t been off.
Now. Let’s move onto my box & review!
Item # 1: Market & Spruce Chaplin Hooded Anorak Cargo Jacket
So I requested this gorgeous, perfect jacket. I saw it in this review and knew I needed to request it. And when I tried it on, it fit so perfectly everywhere BUT the sleeves. It was just a tad short in the sleeves and if it shrunk at ALL when washed (and I got the feeling it would), it would be too short for my taste. If I am going to spend $88 on a jacket, it needs to be perfect. I sent this back – and I might regret it, but I did.
Item # 2: Skies are Blue Deprimo Cutout Back Top
Isn’t this top just adorable? I loved the pattern and embroidered detailing. It was, however, see-through and a little short in the torso. I sent this one back, too.
Item # 3: Colorblock Beatriz Braided Trim Top
Um, so this top. It’s very YELLOW. I wasn’t a fan. It also reminds me of Charlie Brown. While I like Peanuts, I didn’t want to look like Charlie Brown, so – sent this back, too.
Item # 4: Level 99 Adelynn Side Slit Demin Shorts
These, my friends, are my Daisy Dukes. Booty shorts. Wow. SO short on me. Maybe girls who have smaller, short legs can pull them off, but I felt super uncomfortable in them, even though they “fit”. Sent these babies right back!
Item # 5: Market & Spruce Sam Hi-Lo Short Sleeve Top
And from last fix, the same top:
I was SO, SO happy to get a replacement Hi-Lo top. I love this top – lightweight, without being see-through, and everyone needs a gray t-shirt. It’s cosy, but can be dressed up with the right accessories. I kept this happily!
Overall, June’s fix was fun, with different options to try, and I was happy to replace my Hi-Lo shirt. I wish the jacket had been a perfect fit, and was sad to see that one go.
The best part, though, was trying on my items with a friend. Unboxing your fix with a friend is such a neat experience. If you ever have the chance, I highly recommend it!
