Review: Stitch Fix #17 (WITH VOTING!)

SF17

If you recall, my last Stitch Fix was just a total bust. I was ready to give up and emailed them, exasperated. They offered to waive my styling fee to give ’em another shot, so here I am. Ready for #17?

HAILEY 23 Kerrigan Dress, $78

97E19D59-FB24-4213-8EFA-BE75B6447FF5

Steve: “You could get this at Old Navy, right?”

Yes, he’s kind of right. I love the top, but the bottom is a little heavy and maybe a little matronly.

 

BRIXON IVY Cristen Shirt Dress, $68

27C8B8D6-98E7-463A-905C-0B8381E30A80

I was so excited when I took this out because I love the pattern and shirt dresses are fun, right? The fit feels a little off, though, and I’m not sure how I feel about this much mint color.

Steve: “So they stopped sending prison stripes and are just sending flowers now? This looks like a Victoria’s Secret kitchen apron.”

SKIES ARE BLUE Pagan Back Strap Chambray Top, $48

B00D60B1-686B-4681-AD77-538F3C35E6C4

BF8FFD6B-A9DF-448E-873F-B862FA46DAEC

Sorry, not ironing these before posting, so wrinkles it is! I LOVE the chambray, but the metal holes in the bottom are a little odd. I like the t-back design. Would you pay $48 for this?

Steve: “This looks like it was made out of a pillowcase.”

 

MARKET & SPRUCE Benni Crossfront Knit Top, $48

732BF5C8-756B-4409-B199-0F58CC79879C

I love grey! I love the feel of this top! But again … $48? Seems a little steep for a plain grey top …

Steve: [Grabs the front] “You could put a baby kangaroo in here!”

 

SKIES ARE BLUE Klide Woven Back Knit Top, $48

99A1F4CD-CECC-41D6-9198-672F713D09E3

Steve: “This is the clothing version of a mullet — business in the front, party in the back.”

I can’t even talk about this. I dislike it even more after trying it on. The green is too bright, the sides are weirdly high, the pattern is not my style — negative.

 

I don’t know, guys. I’m torn on a few pieces. I was feeling really optimistic when I opened this one, but now — a little less so. Help!

StitchFix #16 (or the one where they didn’t listen to anything I asked)

STITCHFIX

Another day, another StitchFix (technically, it’s two words — Stitch Fix — but pretty sure everyone under the sun spells it as one word). After the last one and sending back the shirt because it had a hole, I was feeling pessimistic but decided to give SF another chance. (Maybe I’m a masochist?)

I asked for: 1-2 dresses for summer weddings, short-sleeve or sleeveless tops, mostly solid colors (no red, orange, or yellow), and all V- or U-neck (crew neck is not flattering on me). Here’s what I received:

PIXLEY Pestova Knot Back Top ($44)

StitchFix review

Well. This is a pattern — and a very busy one, at that. It’s an odd fit, too; the sides expose bra and it’s a little short in the front.

Steve: “Why do they keep sending you shirts that look like you’re going to Woodstock?”

PAPERMOON Neptune Racerback Top ($38)

StitchFix review

Another pattern. I do like this one, and the back is a cute racerback with a solid blue section. (I didn’t show it because I had massive cupping marks.) I guess it’s kind of U-neck, but I don’t love the cut or the pattern.

Steve: “This might be the only thing I’ve ever liked.” WHAT!?

41 HAWTHORN Arlinda Textured Dress ($68)

StitchFix review

You can’t really tell, but this is black with a dark purple pattern. I’m okay with a pattern on the dress, but this is very dark for summer weddings. It’s cute, but not sure if it’s cute enough.

Steve: “PURPLE RAIN, PURPLE RAAAAAAAAAIN!” (I’m laughing because he was singing.)

LE LIS ZULA DRESS ($64)

StitchFix review

My eyes are dizzy just looking at this. #1 – Pattern. #2 – Heavy, not summery. #3 – Not really nice enough for a wedding. #4 – Crew neck!

Steve: “Why do they also keep sending you stuff that looks like you’re a zebra or in prison? I don’t get it.”

DOE & RAE Aliza Knit Textured Dress ($68)

StitchFix review

THIS DRESS IS SO HEAVY AND SHORT WITH A CREW NECK AND NOT AT ALL SUMMERY WTF

I think Steve mumbled something along the lines of LL Bean making this.

Guys. This sucks. I’ve loved SF SO MUCH, but these last two Fixes make it hard to not pull the plug. What say you?

Review: Stitch Fix #13 (or the one where my husband writes the review)

Each time I get a Stitch Fix, my husband shares his witty opinions. He was on fire this time, so I decided to let him take over the review. Without farther ado …

Jazz Embroidery Detail Blouse ($58)

Stitch Fix review

“This looks like a top to go to Mad River. It’s basically just asking people to look at your boobs. And it’s like you’re in a gang. It looks like a big gold chain.”

Brentwood Jersey Stripe Tiered Top ($68)

Stitch Fix review

“Oh, they finished the back! I think they forgot to finish the front; it’s just in pieces. Do you think they forgot to sew the pieces in the front?”

Mallorca Henley Top ($48)

Stitch Fix review

“My grandma had a couch like this. We sat on it.”

Northridge Cowl Neck Jersey Top ($68)

Stitch Fix review

“Are we in New York? Are Snuggies and blankets as shirts a thing now?”

Curtis Dolman Sleeve Knit Top ($48)

Stitch Fix review

“Red Bull gives you wings! But really, I think we could use rubber bands to pull up in the sleeves.”

I told him that I’m keeping the black top.

“That’s ok; we have black spray paint.”

 

Review: Stitch Fix #11 (or the one after a very long break)

SF11

Let’s pretend it hasn’t been exactly one month since I’ve posted and just dive into this Stitch Fix order.

Laina 3/4 Sleeve Striped Tie-Waist Dress ($38)

FullSizeRender_4

 

It’s super soft, which is nice, and I love grey, but it’s kind of a terry cloth material, which makes it feel more like a beach cover-up.

Esten Button-Up Sleeveless Blouse ($58)

FullSizeRender_2

Love the fun grape color and I love a good sleeveless top, but this doesn’t really feel special. It’s kind of like any top that I could get at Marshall’s or something — and definitely spend less than $58.

Jaclynn 3/4 Sleeve Button-Up Cardigan ($38)

FullSizeRender

I loooove cardigans and this is a nice dark grey (although it looks a little brown in the pic), but I prefer slightly longer cardigans. It also didn’t feel different from an Old Navy cardigan that would cost half of what this does. It is had some special embellishment or something different about it, I might consider it.

McQue Solid Lace Sleeve Blouse ($48)

FullSizeRender_3

Do we have a winner here? I love the navy and the lace sleeves are so pretty. (Don’t worry, I wouldn’t wear it with a tank underneath, so there would be no line.) I lean toward v-necks, but I could dress this up with a necklace.

Trinidad Chevron Print Henley Blouse ($48)

FullSizeRender_1

I know that it’s wrinkly and hard to see, but this is a pretty blue chevron pattern. Here’s a closer pic to show the pattern and buttons:

So, what do you think? Which Stitch Fix picks are keepers and which should be returned?
