Last week I received my most recent Stitch Fix and although it was mostly a miss I can at least appreciate that I feel like my stylist tried which is more than I can say for previous fixes.This month there were actually two items I hated so much that I didn’t even bother trying them on and another one I hated the moment it touched my skin. We will get to all of that in just a minute.
First, here is the style card they sent me.
Now, on to a review of the items they sent me.
Brenon Chambray Dress
No. Just…no. I hate the feel and the look of this dress when I pulled it out of the box. I’m not a chambray fan anyway except for the occasional shirt. The moment I saw this dress I tossed it back in the box. I knew I would never wear it and I didn’t even want to consider it.
Blumberg Crochet Trim Top
This was another item I hated. The color was fine but I didn’t care for the little white poms along the collar and the length of the shirt was a little bit short. I thought there was a chance I was being too harsh but when I held it up to show my husband he snarled his nose at it too so back in the box it went.
Cindie Linen Printed Shorts
If you follow me on Instagram then you know this is the item I chose to offer up as a sneak preview of my Stitch Fix when it arrived. I asked them to send me shorts this month (even though I’m super self-conscious in shorts) and these were so comfortable to the touch. I loved how they fit and I loved how light the linen material is but…they had a price point of $78! There is no way I would spend $78 on a pair of shorts. As my friend Blair put it on Twitter, “That’s criminal!”
But…I had a $50 credit on Stitch Fix (you get $25 per referral) which made the shorts only $28 out of pocket. So, because of the credit, I kept these.
Wilma Crepe Romper
I asked for a romper because I really, really wanted another romper. I was hooked on them after the blue and white on I bought at The Limited last year so you’ll understand when I say this is the piece that disappointed me the most. In my notes to my stylist I stressed that I live in Atlanta and it is hot here during the spring and summer. I wanted pieces that did not require layering and that were light, breathable materials.
This romper doesn’t require layering but it is a semi-heavy material that did not feel breathable at all! It had long sleeves unless you feel like rolling them up (which I usually don’t) and the crepe material was quite itchy. I tried it on but hated it. I was going to take a photo but the button across the breast gaped so I opted against photos.
Toree Maxi Dress
Oh, this dress! THIS dress. I loved the maxi length, I loved the material, and I loved the floral print. This was almost a total WIN! I was even willing to bite the bullet on the $88 price point and buy it because I loved it the moment I laid eyes on it.
The only issue with it was the lack of a waist. There was elastic but it was too high to be my waist and it was awkward below my bust. If I pulled it up to just under my bust it made my chest look huge and the material was too loose. If I pulled it down a bit it looked awkward. There wasn’t really a “perfect” place for the elastic to sit. I knew I would be uncomfortably fidgeting with it every time I wore it so, reluctantly, I sent it back.
From what I remember, this is the first month I’ve worked with Patrice as my stylist and I feel like she at least tried to nail down my look. I did say I love dresses and denim so I see why she thought the chambray dress would work for me (I clarified that when I did my checkout) and I appreciate her taking a risk with that crochet top. The shorts were perfect (although the price point was high), she did send a romper like I asked, and the dress was almost perfect.
For a $20 styling fee (which I applied toward the purchase of the shorts), it is fun to receive a fix each month and I’ve already scheduled my next one. Interested in trying them out for yourself? You can sign up -> here.
