So sometimes I love Stitch Fix so much that it seems impossible to wait a whole month before getting a new shipment. July was one of those months – I had a credit (Thank you!!) and figured let’s schedule an extra July box because SUMMER and COLOR and FUN!
Before I get started, I wanted to pass this on to you! I got an email from Stitch Fix offering a $25 credit to YOU for your first fix that is scheduled before July 28th! That’s a free box to try it out (and $25 to spend if you like it!). To get that deal, click on the picture below using my unique referral link for the $25 credit (I also get a $25 credit, so it’s a win-win!)
$25 credit is applied when you create a Stitch Fix account & schedule your first Fix for delivery by July 28, 2016, using the unique referral code below:
Go schedule your own box of SUMMER and COLOR and FUN!!! 🙂
This time, I asked for a top I had been eyeing, a pair of stretchy jean shorts, and maybe a dress, just to mix things up!
This is what happens when you aren’t home when your box comes – your husband tosses it in his workspace/garage:
That doesn’t make for good pictures! Let’s try again:
So first thing I noticed was that my usual stylist, Jennifer, was still on vacation. Boo!
Even though I still wasn’t back with my preferred stylist, my fill-in did a really great job listening to my requests. The maxi dress she sent was LONG enough for my 6 foot frame, which still shocks me.
Let’s unbox it!
Wow! Love the colors/patterns!
Summer in a box.
My initial thought was that I loved 2/5 items. After trying them all on, I’m keeping 1 item. But I am writing this review the day I got my fix, so feel free to weigh in with YOUR opinion!
Item # 1: Papermoon Wigan Shoulder Zip Short Sleeve Knit Top
Initial thoughts: Ew. Blah. Zipper = yuck.
After trying it on – I still didn’t like it. It was a great length, but the zipper detail actually zipped open (which I thought was odd). Plus the placement on the shoulders made the fabric pucker like I had shoulder pads under there. Believe me when I say the LAST thing my broad shoulders need is attention drawn to them. This is going back!
Item # 2: Brixon Ivy Rolfe Knit Back Top
Love the knit back/mixed material thing! And the colors were fabulous!
I am kind of on the fence on this one. I like it. I like the flowers/colors/mixed-material. I was a little boxy in the fit & I’m not a huge fan of wide strapped tanks. I don’t know, maybe I’m being too picky? The price was a little steep, too ($54). What do you think?
Paired with it – Item # 3: Liverpool Esmeralda Demin Short
Um – these aren’t demin shorts – they are tie-dyed shorts!?!
They were also 1 size too small (stretchy wasn’t the word that came to mind when I squeeeeezed into them). I pretty much hate them – the color, cut, fit, etc… I was envisioning normal/regular/plain Jane demin shorts. Oh well: sending them back!
Item # 4: Market & Spruce Elaine Kat Print Pocket-Front Knit Shirt
I requested this one, but in a different color/pattern.
I love it! The knit is so soft, the colors are fun & bright, and the length is perfect! This is a keeper!
I saved the best & worst for last.
Item # 5: Fate Ruby Maxi Dress
I really thought I wouldn’t like this. Maxi dresses are NEVER long enough. But this was a perfect length…and it’s gorgeous…and there’s NOTHING like it in my closet. Nothing. I want to buy this SO badly.
Isn’t it beautiful?!
You guys…I’m so sad…because look at the back *sob*
Not only is it completely sheer in the back, but there’s a gaping, wide hole, with a drawstring tie. HOW IS ONE SUPPOSED TO WEAR THIS WITH A BRA?!
Help me! I want this, but I have to be able to wear a strapless bra (which is already a feat of nature).
This dress is sadly, probably going back 😦
I loved getting a bonus fix this July!! There was lots of fun colors and patterns to try on and it’s the greatest that I can try on summery clothes without going to a store & shopping for them!
Did I peek this fix?
Well…define “peeking”. 😉
Next one will be in August!
