(Stitch Fix) May 2017 Review: Blue + White Denim

(Stitch Fix) May 2017 Review: Blue + White Denim

So, this is Stitch Fix#6.  I’ve been feeling pretty neutral on the last couple of boxes.  I always find something to keep so that I don’t lose my styling fee, but I haven’t been wowed like I was with that very first box.  One of the things I noticed in recent boxes is that my stylist hasn’t been sending many premium brand items. These are the designers I wear when renting from Rent the Runway and Le Tote and what I prefer to buy. For my Fix #7, I’ll ask my stylist to send more premium brands.   

With that said, this latest fix was a decent box and I kept several items!

For those of you who are unfamiliar with Stitch Fix, here’s how it works.

1. Fill out your Style Profile

Begin by filling out the Style Profile. This helps them understand your size, style, shape, budget and lifestyle. Completing your Profile  takes about 10 minutes.

2. Pick the date you’d like to receive your shipment

Select a delivery date from the calendar. At the time your Stylist selects your items, you will be charged a $20 styling fee. That $20 will be applied as a credit toward anything you keep from your shipment.

3. Try everything on in the comfort of your home

Make sure you to try on everything our Stylists have picked for you because you never know what will look great on you. Create new outfits by pairing what’s in your shipment with items that are already in your closet.

4. Buy what you like and return the rest

Take three days to decide what you’ll purchase and what you’d like to send back. You’re only charged for items you choose to keep when you check out.

Check out by logging into your account to pay for the items you want to keep. The $20 styling fee will be applied as credit toward any items you purchase. If you buy all five items,  you get 25% off the entire  purchase

Simply return the items you don’t want in our prepaid mailer and drop it into any USPS mailbox. Stitch Fix provides free shipping both ways as a benefit of using the service.

******************************

So here are the items that I received based on my style profile! Stitch Fix recommends that you try everything on because you might feel differently about it once on your body.  So, that’s exactly what I did!

Liverpool Lanna Denim Jacket.  Price to keep: $78.00

Lakeview Denim Alex Skinny Jean. Price to keep: $58.00

Renee C Jayani Racerback Top. Price to keep: $48.00

Need a Spring jacket!  This denim one is perfect — well, almost.  The fit and feel are great. It’s stretchy, which is great. I just wish the color were a little darker.  This lighter color will be tricky to wear with darker blue and black jeans, but pairs very nicely with white jeans as you see here.  In the end, this is a staple item that I need.

STATUS: KEPT

The top is just too cute — especially with the jean jacket. I like the bright blue and purple colors, and they look nice on my skin. The silky fabric allows you to dress up or down. Given the bargain price, I really debate breaking my “one item per box” rule and keeping this.

STATUS: KEPT

I don’t need the jeans.  I have several white pair.  Even though these are a nice fit and are thin enough for the Spring and Summer seasons, I can’t justify adding a duplicate to my closet.

STATUS: RETURNED

 

Skies are Blue Barb Strappy Detail Blouse.  Price to keep: $48.00

 

I like the style of this blouse but, typically, I’m not a fan of orange.  And, I can’t get over it here. I will send a note to my stylist to see if this comes in other colors because this is a great top to wear out on the town this summer.

STATUS: RETURNED

 

Margaret M Gwen Textured Knit Dress. Price to keep: $98.00

   

Ugh, yuck!  This dress is not at all flattering on me – not good for my square figure.  I think you need to be really curvy to pull this one off.  While I think this would be a cut Summer dress for someone, it’s not for me!

STATUS: RETURNED

 

 

So, what do you think about this month’s Fix!  Let me know!

How do you rate these items in this Fix?

    1. Thank you! I have to start opening these boxes without preconceived notions about what I do and don’t like. Got to open my mind a bit.

  1. The light blue denim is actually a great color on you, and a denim jacket is timeless. I actually prefer it when my jacket and jeans contrast a little, so I don’t look like I’m wearing the Texas tuxedo by accident.

    I agree with Cassi on the orange top! The detailed neckline frames your face really well! However, the silk top you chose to keep seems way more versatile.

    1. Thanks, Catherine. I do like the style of the orange top. I asked my stylist if it comes in my fav color – red – so we may see it again next month!
