Today is the day I review my entire June box from Stitch Fix as well as the results of my Instagram Poll! Are ya ready? Here is Item Number 1!
Margaret M "Lea Printed Short"
When I first saw these shorts in my box my first thought was "Oh no, I don't need nor do I want shorts!" Other than the garden, I rarely wear shorts because I am more comfortable in skirts or dresses. But once I put them on, I was in love. They were so comfortable! Hubby loved them too, and since I had nothing like them already in my closet, I kept them. I have worn them so much already because they are so comfortable and go with anything! They were definitely a good investment piece. Instagram readers loved them too, coming in at #2 with 84% of voters saying to keep the shorts and only 16% said to return them.
Daniel Rainn "Dharma Crochet Detail Knit Maxi Dress"
Y'all know how much I loved this dress so returning it was not easy for me. Everyone loved it here on the blog and on Instagram too. But, because I just received a very similar maxi dress from Stitch Fix last year, I could not justify keeping it. The dress came in at #3 on Instagram with 75% saying to keep it and only 25% said to return it.
Daniel Rainn "Micaela Embroidery Detail Tassel Knit Top"
Although I found this top too hot to wear now (it's very heavy and thick), I can't wait to wear it in the fall with a jean jacket or cardigan. The colors are perfect for fall, plus, I really don't have much of this color in my closet already. This top came in at #4 on Instagram with 71% of readers saying to keep it and 29% said to return it.
Cosmic Blue Love "Adrianne Boyfriend Jean"
These white jeans were the #1 item on Instagram with 88% of readers saying to keep them and 12% saying to return them. They were great jeans! The fit was awesome. The problem? I already own white jeans and did not need another pair.
Market & Spruce "Ezide Textured Print Top"
This polka dot top was the least liked on Instagram and my least liked as well. It polled at 67% "Keep" and 33% "Return". I usually keep any white top Stitch Fix sends me (can you possibly have enough white tops?), but this one did nothing for my heavy arms, plus the back was a thin solid material and you could see right through it. Back it went!
In summary, this was a great Fix for me. I had a new stylist "Karen". I have no idea why, didn't ask for one. All the items polled above 65% "keep" on Instagram. I liked everything but the white top. In the end, I kept only what I felt would make a great addition to my wardrobe: the shorts and the embroidered detail tassel top.
So what do you think? Did I make the right decision?

I think you did the right thing keeping the shorts - they are so cute! Shorts are a summer staple for me :)ReplyDelete

Away From Blue
So fun to see your Instagram poll results! Those printed shorts are really cute on you and I love the embroidered tassel top!ReplyDelete
Jill - Doused in Pink
Thank you! Yes, readers seem to really love to see the poll results, and I do too. It also helps me decide what to keep if I'm on the fence some times.Delete
It's funny because white jeans are something I will have a couple (or 4) pairs of since they get dirty and will be in the wash bin when I want to wear them.ReplyDelete
ha ha! Even though I have two small closets full of clothes and under-the-bed storage, I really try hard to minimize my wardrobe, keeping things I only really need or use. I never understand it when women talk about white jeans getting dirty. I don't think my white jeans get any dirtier than any other type of clothing. I definitely don't wear them in winter like a lot of other bloggers in warmer states do. Mine would be covered in salt stains in minutes if I did that. And I don't wear them on rainy or muddy days. As for wash, I've never been one to accumulate a lot of laundry. I always stay on top of it so rarely is something I need "in the wash" when I want to wear it. Now ironing, that's another story! :)Delete
You got some really nice pieces again, Amy. I like them all! Great choice to keep the shorts and tassel shirt. I also love how those white jeans fit you but it's understandable why you ended up sending them back.ReplyDelete
I think you made great choices, since you couldn't justify a second pair of white jeans, but I'd have had a really hard time saying goodbye to that blue maxi.... Everything looked great on you - even the white top you didn't care for.ReplyDelete
Thank you, I did have a hard time saying goodbye to the maxi. I really wanted to exchange the one I had! Maybe I should have tried selling the one I already owned and kept this one? I don't know. I don't have the success on Poshmark other bloggers have.Delete
Everything looks great, but I understand you why you can't keep everything.ReplyDelete
I'm glad you ended up keeping the shorts! They are really cute on you! I don't think you can ever go wrong with printed shorts! I haven a few and wear them all the time!ReplyDelete
Thanks Laura, Yes, I can't believe how many times I've worn them already!Delete
These are lovely dear, especially the first one!ReplyDelete

Thanks Jess. I tried to visit your blog on Saturday and it was down. Saturday is my blog visiting day. I'll try again this weekend!Delete
Hi! I came over from Blogging Grandmothers to say hi. You are SO lucky that Stitch fix worked for you. I gave them 4 chances and the outfits were terrible. I was vacationing in Florida, told them that, and they kept sending me heavy, really ugly outfits. I wouldn't have put them on my great grandmother. Your outfits look really cute!! I like the clothes that you kept.ReplyDelete
Wow! I have never heard that before. I'm so sorry you had that experience. I've been a Stitch Fix subscriber for years. Most of the clothes in my closet come from Stitch Fix now. I rarely buy clothes from anywhere else.Delete
