Ohhh how much I love Stitch Fix delivery day! It is one thing to get the email saying your package has been shipped but when I see this box on my doorstep another level of excitement comes out!For this month’s fix I asked for pieces that I could wear back to school and transition into fall- yes I am aware that it is still summer and I still have a few weeks before I return to school, however fall is coming.
As always with any Stitch Fix, I am charged a $20.00 styling fee. My stylist checks out my note that I write to her on the Stitch Fix app or website, my Pinterest board and my style profile and carefully selects five items for me to try on. I can keep whatever I like, and what I do not like I take back to the post office in a a pre-paid bag and send back. Checking out is easy and I always use my app for that. If I keep anything I can use the $20.00 styling fee as a “credit” and you also can snag a 25% discount if you keep all five items!
So for my August Fix I was sent one pair of pants, one cardigan, one short sleeve top, one 3/4 sleeve top, and a dress.
First up is the Laurie Skinny Pant by Liverpool. These pants were very comfortable and a nice shade of grey that would be perfect for work however they were just too tight for my liking. They did also have an elastic waist band which I was a fan of but the tightness outweighed the comfort. End result: RETURNED
Next was the Marisol Mixed Material 3/4 Sleeve Knit Top. On first inspection these seemed like a boring knit top, however when you turn it around, it has an adorable white polka dot back! This shirt was slightly longer in the back which I was a fan of but overall I was just not attached or overly attracted to it. End result: RETURNED
The next item I tried on the Falisa Crochet Detail Knit Top by Loveappella. I did not love this print at first glace but did like the detail on the back. This top was very soft but I think over priced. End Result: RETURNED
The fourth item was the Abrianna Longsleeve Knit Cardigan by 41Hawthorn. While I absolutely loved this color and softness of the fabric I own too many cardigans to justify another one right now. End Result: RETURNED
Last but certainly not least was the Deonna Dress by Skies are Blue. As soon as I saw this dress in the package I knew I would be keeping it. I already had the perfect event picked out to wear it too and was just so over the moon excited to have a beautiful, comfortable dress in a color that I do not already have in the closet! I am wearing the dress TODAY for an event I have and I already feel more confident and ready to knock it out of the park! End Result: KEEPING!!!
While I did only keep one item, I could not be more happy about the timing, fit and feel of this dress. I did not have time to go out and buy a new dress for my event and did not want to wear my plain old boring black shift dress.
