Stitch Fix Review #7

It’s been 8 months since my last Stitch Fix delivery, which seems crazy. Then again, I was pregnant up until 3 months ago so I kind of gave up on getting a box during pregnancy and chose instead to have a mini maternity capsule wardrobe.

Since we’ll be taking a trip to the beach next month, I figured this month would be good to get a new fix and ask for a few items that would be useful not only for the trip but to start adding to my wardrobe as I slowly try to build a capsule. {p.s. More on capsule wardrobes.}

My stylist did a great job with accomodating most of my requests and the items were lined up fairly well with my style as well. Let’s take a look at my 5 items!

1. DEAR JOHN Finnegan Roll Cuff Chino Short {$48}
I requested some shorts since it’s summertime and I need some more in my wardrobe. I’m also on the hunt for some quality denim shorts, that will go with pretty much any top. While the pinstripe on these shorts was cutesy, I just don’t see them getting much wear in my closet.
*Pros: Sizing was fine, quality seems pretty good
*Cons: Not denim, would be harder to coordinate more tops with, a little too short for my taste

2. THML Thornton Spaghetti Strap Top {$48}
This blouse was the dressiest of my fix and I just loved the colors. However, I can’t think the last time I wore a spaghetti strap top and don’t intend to start anytime soon. It’s just not a very flattering style on my body and especially not very handy for nursing, if it doesn’t have any give.
*Pros: Great color combination, love the detail on the front and two different fabric styles
*Cons: Emphasizes my already broad shoulders, not nursing friendly

3. MARKET & SPRUCE Veria Cross Over Knit Top {$48}
A great top, especially for summer and a bonus is that I can totally and easily nurse in it. I think it would look great with dark wash denim shorts (or jeans) and strappy sandals, or dressed up a little with white linen flowy pants. I really wanted to love this top 100% but in the end, I decided against keeping it.
*Pros: This one is definitely nursing friendly, pretty design and color combination
*Cons: I felt like this top just fit really weird on me, maybe it was too much fabric and clung in the wrong places?

4. ROSETTE Tiera Knit Top {$38}
Out of all the tops, this one was my favorite. It’s not exactly nursing friendly but the looser bottom allows for fairly easy access. Plus, it’s navy/white stripe so that wins in my book. If I was brave, I would wear white shorts with this top but it’ll probably be denim or my peach colored chino shorts.
*Pros: Fit well, fabric seems sturdy, great color, flattering around midsection
*Cons: Have to pull up to nurse in, but then again that’s just a temporary concern

5. GILLI Zuli Striped Maxi Dress {$74}
My stylist followed through on my request for a maxi dress. I really wanted to keep this piece but in the end, decided against spending this amount of money on a maxi dress which likely wouldn’t get a ton of mileage. If it was $20 less and navy/white or black/white I would definitely have kept it.
*Pros: Love the color, fit well and fabric feels like good quality jersey
*Cons: I just can’t justify the price tag for what I’m getting, since I own other maxi dresses of similar caliber and have paid less. It was also a smidgen too long.

If you kept track, I ended up keeping just 1 of the 5 items from my fix this time around. Usually I’d like to keep 2-3 items but since it was my first fix in a while I’ll give it a pass. I also realize I’m being pretty picky especially since I’m trying to be more intentional about what I purchase for my wardrobe. Overall, I was pleased with my fix and know that I’ll get some mileage out the tank I kept.

Fellow Stitch Fix users…what’s been in your box lately? I love hearing what other people get in their fixes, since each fix is unique. If you don’t use Stitch Fix, what are some of your favorite go-to pieces of clothing?

    It all looks great! Well, that one top is weird, but that’s the top’s fault, not yours :p It’s nice to have a fix that’s good overall! I haven’t ordered one in quite a while, but I’ve got a Gwynnie Bee review coming up on my blog.

      I’ve not heard of Gwynnie Bee before! I’m curious to see how it works for you. Have you tried Golden Tote? That’s another one I might consider for the future.

      • Elizabeth says:

        Gwynnie Bee offers plus sizes. 8 on the low end and I think up to a 32? I don’t remember. I need to put the post up because it helped me get an idea what else was out there. I’m not sure if the service is really for me (it’s pretty different from Stitch Fix) and there’s not as much in my size. Anyway, I’ll let you know when that happens 🙂 Never heard of Golden Tote, but I’m taking a look!

      • Urban Wife says:

        Ok, thanks for letting me know. I think it’s neat that so many more styling services have popped up over the past year or two. At least it gives consumers more options for using styling services, even if they all slightly differ from each other.
