A few weeks ago I received my Summer Stitch Fix box in the mail and while I ended up keeping 2 items, that particular Fix didn’t have what I was hoping to see. This is totally my own fault though, because I could have told my stylist what gaps I was hoping to fill in my summer wardrobe, but I chose to just leave it up to chance and see what was sent in the hopes that I would be pleasantly surprised. Do I regret leaving it up to chance? NO, because I ended up receiving one top that is totally me, and another that I would have never picked for myself that I ended up loving.
I decided to go ahead and order another Stitch Fix box at the end of June and be much more specific with what I was looking for. I was hoping to see casual, light-weight tops that are versatile enough to be worn multiple ways – with jeans/shorts/yoga pants/Nike shorts – and can also be layered with sweaters during the cooler seasons. I also mentioned I wouldn’t be upset if she threw in a casual dress as well. During these summer months I’m all about loose-fitting, light-weight clothes because it’s near impossible to keep cool. Let’s get to it!
Stitch Fix Review – Summer 2019 Round 2
Item #1: Nike Gym Vntg Tank
LOVE this Nike top! I love the racer back and can definitely see myself working out in this and wearing it on hot summer days running around with the kids. It can be worn in the fall with yoga pants and a light athletic jacket.
Item #2: Papermoon Ampton Back Detail Knit Top
I love that this top is versatile as well. As you can see, it can be worn with Nike shorts for a super casual feel, or denim shorts. I actually wore it out last night to Campus 805 with a pair of white shorts. It’s so light and so comfy. I also love the back detail (see the photo below).
Item #3: Pink Clover Daisee Button Back Knit Top
THIS TOP = my style to a T. Like many of Stitch Fix’s garments, it is ridiculously soft. One of the reasons I almost solely buy items from Stitch Fix now is because of the quality of their clothes. You’re not getting something that’s going to shrink up or change shape after you wash it. It retains its quality wash after wear after wash after wear. Like the previous top, this one can be worn with many different types of bottoms and I know I will get my money’s worth out of it for sure. (You can’t see in either picture, but it buttons all the way down the back, which gives it a little something extra.)
Item #4: Market & Spruce Meg Knit Dress
This dress is very similar to the navy striped dress I received in my first Stitch Fix box last summer, which is awesome because I wear that dress all the time. I wore it all through the winter with sweaters and I wear it frequently on it’s own in the summer. I can see the same happening with this dress as well. Again, it’s super soft, and the fit is just right. Another big plus with Stitch Fix is that they know your measurements/size so they can send you clothes that are likely to fit very well. I like that the dresses they send are the perfect length (they always send petite).
Item #5: Kaileigh Jolla Mixed Material Knit Top
This top was my least favorite of the shipment because of the two different fabrics (see photo below) but I did like how it looked from the front and it was cheaper to keep it than to send it back (if you keep all 5 items, you get 25% off). Even though the mixed material isn’t my favorite style, I know I will still wear this a ton because I like how it falls, it’s light and loose fitting, and it’s modest. Again, I can see myself layering this with a sweater in the winter and being super comfy (can you tell I’m ready for cold weather already? Summer is just not my jam.)
My stylist absolutely took my suggestions and sent items that I loved. Before trying Stitch Fix, I would read reviews and think I’m not sure that I can spend $150-$200 on clothes at a time! But now that I’ve tried it, I realize that even though I’m only keeping 5 articles of clothing, it fills in gaps in my closet, and I don’t feel the need to go out and buy new clothes every season. I can honestly say that I don’t remember the last time I bought clothes in a store. Another reason for this is that the quality is so good on these clothes, I can wear them time and time again, and they don’t wear out.

A few other things I like about Stitch Fix:
– You don’t have to hop around to different stores searching for something you’re looking for. If you would like a specific piece of clothing or if you have an upcoming event that you need an outfit for, let your stylist know before scheduling your box.
– You can set your price point wherever you’re comfortable with, so that you will get items that are within your budget.
– Returning items is free. Just use the prepaid, pre-addressed envelope and toss it in any USPS mailbox.
– You can stop at any time. You can schedule recurring boxes (every month, 2 months, 3 months, etc.) or you can request them on demand. You are fully in control.
– The initial $20 styling fee is applied toward anything you decide to keep from your box. It is most beneficial to keep at least one item from your shipment, or you will lose the $20 styling fee.
– If you give honest feedback, as time goes by your stylist will get to know your style better and will send you items that you are more likely to keep.
– The quality of the clothing is top-notch.
