Stitch Fix: Reveal and Review – June 2016

Summer has finally arrived and we are roasting in 90+ degree heat here in Charlotte although the summer months also brought some bright colors and fun outfits to this month’s fix. It wasn’t my favorite fix but partly due to a few complaints I had with individual items as opposed to the overall style of the box.

So let’s see what Tina sent this month…

Dolce Vita Davina Metallic Thong Sandal – $59

These are my second pair of Stitch Fix shoes and I really love these (like the last pair). The yellow is right up my street and would brighten up an outfit with a pop of color. My issue with these shoes – and why I’ll be sending them back – the price. Stitch Fix are charging $59 for them. I found them on Amazon for $35. That’s a huge mark up. Unfortunately I couldn’t get a price match because they weren’t in the same color on Amazon. I’m not particularly happy with that aspect of Stitch Fix. I won’t be requesting shoes anymore from them as both pairs have been overpriced. However, on the plus side, I just ordered a different pair of Dolce Vita sandals from Amazon!

Market and Spruce Ralphie Romper – $64

I love this romper. Normally rompers are really short on me because I have long skinny legs. This one was a great fit. Very comfy and flattering around the stomach – great for my mummy tummy! My stylist suggested I pair it with the yellow sandals. I did and loved the pop of color. Black and yellow is a favorite color combination of mine.

ARATTA Simmaron Cut Out Back Top

Well clearly this top is WAY too small. It’s the first time that’s been an issue (see the next top for the opposite problem – both the same size!). It’s also just a bit weird. I see why my stylist sent it. It’s similar to the pattern on the Fate maxi dress I kept last month. However, the colors and super weird cut out back are really not my style. So this one’s a no!

Papermoon Argus Lace Detail Knit Top

I love the style and color of this top so much. Bright pink is another one of my favorite colors and the lace detailing on the top is gorgeous. BUT, the material is of a poor quality and felt like it had already begun to lose its shape. It is also much too large for me. Again, another Stitch Fix sizing issue. If their XS tops are this big, they really need to offer an XXS. I wouldn’t even get XS in any normal stores so I wonder how the women out there slimmer than me cope. A real shame but I have no choice but to return it.

Bishop + Young Flin Kimono – $54

While I hadn’t explicitly asked for a kimono in this fix, I was secretly hoping for one! This kimono was beautiful. The material as soft as silk and the fit was good. The only reason I didn’t keep it was the colors. I don’t really own much orange and really struggled with working out what to put with this. It did however confirm in my mind that a kimono is missing in my life so have since purchased a mint one on Amazon!

Overall impressions:

An interesting box this month. While I only kept one item, this felt very much my style. In fact, if nothing else, it gave me lots of good ideas for my own wardrobe and inspired some Amazon purchasing (although I’m sure Stitch Fix would rather that didn’t happen!). Until next time…
