Stitch Fix July Review

July 7, 2015

Stitch Fix July 1Right after returning from vacation I had a new Stitch Fix box to welcome me back to real life. I’ll admit, it helped a bit in softening the post-vacation blues and was a fun surprise when it arrived at my door yesterday morning. Since I haven’t decided which items to keep and which to return, I was hoping you might be able to help me with this month’s box? I’m super torn on what items to keep! Let’s dive in…

1. Brixon Ivy Azure Lace Overlay Blouse $54
I thought this top was sort of strange before I tried it on, but when I look back at photos that Joe took, I really like the top?! I’m not entirely sold either way, because in some respects it seems a bit casual for work and doesn’t really fit my style, but it’s fun and a little different, too.

Stitch Fix July 42. Pixley Carlyn Pleated Skirt $58
I wanted to love this skirt, but I’m not sure it’s really the most flattering thing? Overall, stretchy waist skirts don’t tend to be the best look for my body type, at least that’s what I’ve always thought. And I have a skirt that’s pretty similar in color and shape, so I’m not sure it meets a real “need” in my closet at this time.

Stitch Fix July 23. Pixley George Crochet Detail Knit Top $44
As you can probably tell from the photo, this top was a little bit too short for my long torso. That said, I’m not sure I would think about keeping it even if it was longer. It’s casual and cute, but at this point I’m not really looking to buy clothes that are super casual. They need to work for the office and at home!

4. Kut From The Kloth Kate Boyfriend Jean $78
I love this brand of jeans and have purchased a pair or two from Stitch Fix before. My complaint is that they are semi-boyfriend but not really? I have a few pairs that require you to roll the bottom up and this just seems like more of the same. I guess I would rather have a pair of skinny jeans that fit well. But I do love the way these fit and how comfortable they are!

Stitch Fix July 35. Pixley Joaquin Hooded Vest $74
I asked for a denim vest but was told in my comment card that they weren’t able to find a denim vest and included this vest instead. I’m not a huge fan of the loose fit and giant pockets at my hips. Although I appreciate the effort of including a vest, this one doesn’t really seem like a suitable alternative to a denim vest. I was hoping for something a little more cropped and fitted.

So what items would you keep? Which ones would you return? I desperately need your help deciding this time around!

    I like the first top and I think it could work well with a lot of different outfits – with jeans, with dressier pants, or under a blazer. I have a lace overlay top and it’s really versatile and easy to dress up and down! That piece is a keeper.

    To be honest, it all looks good on you! For sure to keep for me would be the lace top and the vest. If you have a skirt similar to that one, I wouldn’t spend money on it. I actually really like those pants, too! I think you could dress them up or down.

    I actually love the vest and it looks great on you! I think it would be a great transition piece into fall and early winter too!

  • Reply Ami Kochendorfer July 7, 2015 at 2:57 pm

    I love it all too!! Sorry I’m no help ā€” Keep it all. šŸ™‚ And tell Stitch Fix to start sending me stuff like this! šŸ˜‰ They have been missing the mark the last few times and I’ve had to send everything back. :-/

    If you’re not 100% comfortable in any of the pieces or confident that they’ll work in your existing wardrobe, don’t keep them because you won’t wear them. The vest is a nice transition for fall. The lace overlay top could definitely be used in an office or with jeans.

    It sounds like you’re playing devil’s advocate on all of the pieces… so… if you’re not in absolute love with any, return them all! Maybe all five will be keepers next month and then you won’t feel guilty for buying them all šŸ™‚ Thanks for sharing with us.

    Keep the lace top! I had a similar one from Express and while I initially bought it to wear with jeans, I found that it was incredibly versatile and ended up wearing it with dress pants, pencil skirts, shorts, you name it! This one looks great on you with jeans, but I bet you’d be able to dress it up to make it work appropriate too.
    Also, that vest doesn’t scream summer to me but it might make for a great fall wardrobe piece.

    In my opinion, there are so many cute things you tried on this month! I’m in love with the lace blouse and the skirt, and I think the jeans are a fun change from the typical skinny jeans. The striped top and vests are cute, but I wouldn’t keep them if you’re not in love with them.

    I love 1, 2, and 4.

    I actually love the vest and the way you styled it – I think that’s the cutest look of all of them! That vest can go with maxi dresses or jeans and is a great transition piece. I think you’re right about the skirt, you can find one that fits better and is cuter.

    I love the first white top – can totally be dressed up or down. And I actually really love the vest too! It will help transition summer clothes to fall!

  • Reply Katherine Kelly July 7, 2015 at 6:24 pm

    I say the first top is a great option for work! Pair it with a great blazer or fun cardigan and it works. I think even on its own it could work, too. Also, I like the vest for some reason … but if you were looking for a closer cut, then maybe not.

    I don’t comment very often, but I have to say, I am in love with the first top. I have a lace one that is similar that I wear a lot, but that one takes it to another level! I can’t figure out where to buy it, or I would own it at this very moment! I love the idea of a stitch fix box. One day I’ll invest in the concept, for sure. šŸ™‚ Love seeing your Stitch Fix posts.

    The lace overlay top is DARLING. Keep…. or let me buy from you šŸ™‚ ha!

  • Reply Sonya J July 7, 2015 at 9:48 pm

    What pants are you wearing in the last photo? They look great on you!

  • Reply Urban Wife July 7, 2015 at 9:57 pm

    If you’re not fully in love with any of the pieces, don’t keep them. Better the $20 styling fee ‘wasted’ than stuff in your closet you won’t wear. šŸ˜‰ For the record, I think they are all cute minus that khaki vest which looks like something Steve Irwin might have worn.

    I love the Lace Overlay top and think it can be flexible for work and casual wear. It is adorable!

  • Reply Kate July 8, 2015 at 2:11 am

    Loved seeing all the pieces you got! The lace top is definitely my favorite- I think it looks great on you and you could definitely dress it up or down!

    All the pieces look great on you! I would keep the lace top and the skirt.

  • Reply Caitlyn July 8, 2015 at 6:34 pm

    I like the lace top and the shorter stripe top would look more dressy with high waisted pants/skirt.

  • Reply Ellie C July 9, 2015 at 2:49 am

    I absolutely love that vest on you!! So adorable and versatile!
