Summer Stitch Fix | June 2016 Review

We have been in a huge purging mode over here, which means that my closet has undergone quite the transformation in the past month. I took no prisoners – anything that hadn’t been worn in the last six months to a year is either waiting to be sold on Poshmark (check out my closet here!) or was donated. I’m now slowly starting to add a few quality pieces back into the mix, so I scheduled a summer Stitch Fix that I received late last week.

Summer Stitch Fix June 2016 Review

In case you’re not familiar with Stitch Fix, it is an online style service that connects you with a personal stylist based on your style profile and preferences. There is a $20 styling fee, and you receives five items in every box – whether it’s all clothes or a combination of clothes, shoes, accessories, etc. – and you have three days to try everything on in the comfort of your own home. The $20 styling fee is applied to any purchase that you make, so I always recommend keeping at least one item so you aren’t out the money. Once you decide what you want to keep, you send the rest back in the provided prepaid envelope. Easy peasy!

As usual, I requested and worked with my stylist, Caitlin, on this fix. Since I’m lacking in the tops department at the moment, my note to her asked for summer tops (not tees, I have enough of those!) that easily could be worn casual or dressed up for date night. I asked for tops with sleeves – short or 3/4 quarter length, preferably – but cap sleeves are a big no because that style hits funny on my arm and isn’t flattering. I also requested my usual neutrals but with a pop of color, such as blue, thrown into the mix.

Caitlin did a fantastic job of reading my note and pulling pieces that met my requirements. This probably was the most personalized fix that I’ve received yet, and I was this close to keeping everything. So, let’s take a look at the clothes!

Market & Spruce Sam Hi-Lo Short Sleeve Tee – $44.00
Verdict: Returned It
Oh, be still my heart – another super soft grey tee. It was really difficult for me to return this top, especially since Caitlin strategically put this in my fix because she read this post and thought it would be a great option for when I’m getting dressed on the fly to be ready for a house full of contractors. I was surprised that I liked the hi-lo cut – I normally just like longer tees so I can tuck the front in a bit, but I liked the overall relaxed feel of this one. And, it was as soft as a blanket. I didn’t want to take it off.

Le Lis Bayle Crew Neck Blouse – $48.00
Verdict: Returned It
I was pretty excited when I saw this top in the box – black and white AND stripes? Duh, that’s like my perfect blouse. I did like the cut of the top, but I found it to be a bit boxy and overwhelming on my frame. I kept saying to Ryan that it looked like I was trying to hide some weight gain when I had this blouse on. I probably would’ve kept it if it was shaped differently.

RD Style Timbers Split Neck Tunic – $64.00
Verdict: Returned It
This was the only top/dress/tunic that I wasn’t thrilled about. First of all, I’m still not sure what it’s meant to be – is it a top? Dress? It was ridiculously long, but it was still too short for something I would’ve felt comfortable wearing as a dress. I tucked it in for the purpose of this photo, but I wouldn’t rock it like that in public as a top. The mystery continues. Honestly, if it would’ve been just a normal length top, I would’ve been all over it – you never can go wrong with chambray.

Skies are Blue Walda Embroidered Top – $54.00
Verdict: Kept It!
YES! This was exactly what I was looking for when I requested this fix. A white, airy blouse with a fresh pop of blue – perfect for summer days and cool evenings. I wore this blouse paired with tailored shorts this past Friday when we attended a local wine walk on our town’s main street, and I never felt too warm in the sun or with the humidity. This will be getting lots of wear throughout the next few months.

Kut From The Kloth Sinclaire Button Front Blouse – $68.00
Verdict: Kept It!
Again, another big YES. I’m a huge fan of button down tops because they are so easy to throw on with practically anything. This one fits the bill because it’s super lightweight (and sheer, so I will wear a cami underneath), and I love the floral pattern and colors. I easily can throw this on with a pair of shorts or jeans during the day, and then tuck it into a skirt for nighttime.

Just like my last Stitch Fix, I kept two of the five items, which I consider a definite win. Now my wardrobe is a little freshened up for the next few summer months!

  • Absolutely loving the last two tops! So cute and perfect to dress up or down! Sequins & Sea Breezes

  • That floral top is my favorite!! So pretty and cute with your denim shorts. I also think that it looks great on you!! πŸ™‚ I was also thinking about Stitch Fix yesterday for some reason haha. I did a major closet clean out a few months ago and now I feel like I don’t have any clothes haha. Thanks for sharing and I hope that you are having a good week so far! πŸ™‚

  • I love seeing stichfix posts and love the two tops you kept! The floral print is so pretty and I love how light and airy both of them look.

  • Looks like you got some great stuff! So many cute tops!

    So many great items! The striped top is such a strange shape. I don’t think I could have resisted the gray tee – love the items you kept, too!

  • Loving that embroidered top you kept, and I can’t imagine how hard it was to return that gray tee!

    I can see why you were excited to receive this latest StitchFix, really cute stuff and I like what you picked, especially the floral top. I think you should have kept the grey tee, too!

  • I love the tops you kept!

  • When I saw the collage up top, I was hoping you’d keep that white blouse! It’s absolutely lovely, and looks so great on you! The floral button up too, such perfect summery tops!

    I really like both pieces that you kept – they look so great on you!! I can absolutely see why you returned the pieces that you did! I need a closet clean out soon too! xo, Biana

  • That’s such a bummer that the chambray top was too long! I didn’t even realize how long it was until you said that you had to tuck it in. Hopefully you can find another one that works for you!

  • Love the pieces you ending up keeping- perfect for summer (especially that embroidered top)!

  • Everything looks so great on you so it would be so hard to send things back πŸ˜‰ I do love the two pieces you kept though!

  • I love the two you kept! You styled that tunic well, I couldn’t tell it was that long!

  • I think you kept the right two pieces! I’m a sucker for embroidery and that first top is sooo pretty! I liked the grey shirt as well, but I think you could definitely find something similar for a lot cheaper, you know? Although it does sound amazingly soft!

    • I love the embroidery top, I was so excited to wear it right away over the weekend. And I agree about the grey shirt!

  • Christina Sotherden

    I love the ones you kept – they were my favorites in the collage up top and I would have picked the same two – so cute!

  • So glad you kept both of those last two blouses. I’m all about embroidered tops and that one is too cute!

  • Love the tops you kept! Great Fix!

  • I didn’t know that about the $20 styling fee being applied to a purchase. That’s nice. the two tops you kept are perfect. Pieces like that are summer staples for me because they are easy but still look so polished.

  • I still haven’t gotten on board with Stitch fix, I feel like I can find the same items for better prices… but maybe not? I guess it is convenient! Your picks are super cute! I would have had a hard time sending that grey tshirt back πŸ™‚

    • I totally know what you’re saying – like the gray tee for example, I couldn’t really justify keeping it for $44. Pretty sure I could find something similar for less money.

  • Love the white and blue top you kept! Nice choice πŸ™‚

  • oh snap i am scared to click on your poshmark closet because i am not supposed to be shopping!
    i love that grey hi low tee! it looks amazing on you, but definitely not worth $44. bah. love the two tops you kept!

  • Kristy Simon

    I agree with the picks and what you sent back!
