Four times a year I like to receive a order from Stitch Fix; one Fix for every season. I do this not because I hate shopping, but I like to try on clothes that I might not normally pick for myself. For this Fix, I didn't have anything specific in mind, so I just asked for summer clothes and I requested no sleeveless tops. I had a new stylist this time. My past twelve Fixes I had the same stylist, this time I had Heather.
In this Fix, I received one dress, one pair of shorts, and three tops.
The dress is a Sydnie Shirt Dress and it is a size Medium. The cost is $68.00.
This is the styling card. I think it would look great with either of these options. It was 90 degrees the day we photographed this outfit, so I didn't add any extra layers. I chose mustard sandals and a bright coral bag to echo the colors in the dress.
The dress had the strangest print across my back. My daughter said "It looks like you have a second set of boobs on your back". LOL! So, I think you may have figured out by now, it went back!
Sorry about the tag hanging out in back. My photographer didn't notice it when taking the pictures.
The next items I received were the Greda Woven Shirt Trim Knit Tee and Cuffed Denim Boyfriend Shorts. My first thought when I saw this shirt in my Fix was "Oh no, not another striped shirt!". I just donated several striped shirts because I didn't like the way they looked on me and I determined I was one of the few women on the planet who didn't look good in stripes. But I tried the shirt on, and it ended up being my favorite item in the Fix.
The shirts I donated were made of a very clingy material, and this shirt had a nice loose fit. Plus I liked the little extra details such as the faux layering and the buttons on the side.
I styled my striped top with a new back pack bag from JCPenney, white sneakers, and the Kut From The Kloth denim shorts included in this Fix.
The striped top is a size Medium and costs $54.00. As much as I liked the top, I couldn't justify spending that much money for basically a striped tee shirt. So, I sent it back.
Here is the styling card for the shorts.
I really loved the shorts included in this Fix. Like all Kut From The Cloth pants they fit like a glove (for size reference, I'm wearing a size 6). I loved the length, the slight distressing, and the unfinished cuff. However, at a cost for $68.00 they were just too expensive for shorts and I really did not need them. So I sent them back.
The next item in my Fix was a pretty cobalt blue top. Here is the styling card.
I really love this top. The details are very pretty, and the color is very flattering on me. However, I thought the babydoll cut of the sleeve made my arms look fat and I already own a cobalt blue short sleeve top. So, with regret, I sent it back. My stylist said in her note to me that she included this top because I pinned a similar cobalt blue top on Pinterest. But, I only pinned that top because I liked the style, not that I necessarily wanted a top in this color.
Cobalt blue looks great with white, so I styled the top with white Bermudas and white sandals. I added a bright pink bag for an accent color.
The top is a size Medium and the cost is $64.00. I think that's pretty high for a blouse...another reason it went back!
I really did love all the details in this top. The front of the top had the cutest neckline and hem, and the back of the top had a row of buttons!
The final outfit in my Fix was a Poncho Style Blouse. Or, as I referred to it, "My Golden Girl's Top"
Here is the styling card:
Maybe if I were ten years older, I would wear this outfit but I just thought between the print and the cut that it was too old for me. OR, it would look great on someone a lot younger than me that doesn't have to worry about her clothes aging her. I could definitely see this top on a skinny twenty something gal!
I kind of liked the top because it's so cool and comfy. It's very sheer, so a tank underneath is a must. I wouldn't mind trying this top in a different pattern, so I will keep a look out for something similar next time I'm shopping.
The top is a size Medium and the cost is $48.00.
I unfortunately ended up forfeiting my $20.00 styling fee and sending everything back. My daughter was the one who convinced me. She won me over by saying that even if I lost the $20.00 I still got the enjoyment of receiving a surprise package and new clothes to do a blog post with. What the point of spending another $34.00 to keep one item (the striped tee) that I could buy somewhere else for less that $20.00?
Even with a new stylist, I haven't been having a lot of luck with my Fixes lately. I think I liked everything in this Fix but I either owned something similar already, the price was too high, or there was something not-quite-right about the item that didn't make it worth the cost.
So what about you, what was your favorite item in this Fix? I'd love to hear from you!
Have a Great Day! Amy

The Poncho top is by far my favorite Amy. This looks amazing on you. I also like the dress, but I would maybe wear the white jeans with it too.ReplyDelete
I really enjoy reading these stitch fix reviews,it must be great unwrapping it all, a bit like Christmas! xx
It's so funny, because I didn't like the poncho top at all when I first saw it, but then it grew on me. I think I will look for a similar top elsewhere with a different print.Delete
Hi Amy, the striped top is my favorite. I actually like the poncho style floral top on you. I don't think it looks too young for you to wear. I feel the same as you do by saying the items are more expensive than I want to pay. I am very frugal and have three children so those prices do not fit in my budget. I enjoyed seeing your pics of this Fix. ~Lisa~ReplyDelete
Thanks Lisa, the striped top was my favorite piece too. And I did like the poncho top eventually, but I'm frugal too. I felt like I could find both these pictures elsewhere for a fraction of the price.Delete
I think all outfits look cute on you, I like the print on the front of the dress, but I agree it's a little strange on the back. I really like how the poncho shirt looks on you - I think it's my favorite for this post. I agree though they are so pricey, and that's why I didn't sign up for stitch fix. I actually made an account a while back but it's just too expensive for me and I'd only pay those prices if they were absolutely "must have" items, so I can totally see why you sent everything back.ReplyDelete
Thanks Elli. I did like aspects of all the items I received in this Fix, but when I can buy the same item for a fraction of the price at JCP, I just don't see the point. I think Stitch Fix is for people who either don't like shopping, don't have the time to shop, or don't know how to shop. I obviously don't fall into any of those criteria. I'm going to keep my eye out for a poncho blouse now!Delete
Some very nice pieces, and I agree - the striped top in indeed a winner. I like the poncho style top too, very fresh and summery. xoxReplyDelete
Thanks Patti...those two items seem to be the most popular.Delete
I really like that first dress. It is really gorgeous and I actually like the pattern and colors. I do understand when you say it looks a tad bit short. Too bad none of the items worked.ReplyDelete
There were many aspects of the dress that I liked, but the pattern on the back and the shortness of the dress were the main reasons I sent it back. I almost kept it though!Delete
I've never tried StitchFix, but I always love reading reviews.ReplyDelete
I think you got some cute items, but I agree that the prices are a bit steep, especially if the items weren't "perfect" or you had already something similar. I do love the poncho top though. I think you look great in it, and when you find something similar in a print you love, it'll be great for summer.

Thanks Andrea! Yes, for a budget shopper like myself, Stitch Fix isn't a good fit for me. I think this will be my last Fix. But it's been fun!Delete
I love all of these looks! I am partial to the stripes. Love!ReplyDelete
Thanks so much! I loved the striped shirt, it was just too expensive for me.Delete
You did get some cute items, but the prices were quite high this time around! I think you did the right thing by not getting anything. I probably would have been in the same boat.ReplyDelete
Thanks Laura! Yes, I was stunned that the cut-off shorts and the cobalt top cost so much.Delete
Loved your try on, you looked gorgeous in everything and I found your Golden Girls reference so funny! But, you know, that top was my favourite by far! Loved the red colour mix and style on you and I loved your styling of it with the white jeans.ReplyDelete
Ha-ha! I'm glad someone got my Golden Girls reference. I don't think too many of the young un's know of this show. Thanks so much, since that top was so popular, I will look for a similar top in a better pattern and price.Delete
