Stitch Fix #5 – Spring & Summer Style

It has been a long while but I finally decided it was time for another Stitch Fix! If you’ve been reading along for a while you may recall I accidentally received two Stitch Fixes at the same time – WHOOPS! So that ate up my clothing budget for a little bit. That was almost a year ago! I’ve been really good with my spending and I have a little bit of referral credit (thanks to all of you! xo) so I figured now was a good time!

And for the first time, I recorded an unboxing video. Follow along with me while I open my Stitch Fix package and see everything for the first time. Also, Vela makes an appearance and then knocks the camera to the side towards the end. #professional

So now that you’ve watched my initial reaction to the clothes, here’s what I thought after trying them on:

Stitch Fix #5 - Spring & Summer Style

41Hawthorn – Astrid Spade Print Tie-Neck Blouse – $54 – The print on this top looks very similar to the print on a maxi dress I kept last year from Stitch Fix #3, so I can see why my stylist sent it to me. I loved how the material felt. It’s 100% polyester but feels very silky. Ultimately, though, it was very boxy on me, and I’m not a huge fan of tucking in my tops. It looks fine in pictures but it was SUPER baggy and not the most flattering piece. I do like the print, though.

Sugarlips – Celise Pencil Skirt – $58 – I returned a similar pencil skirt from Stitch Fix #4 and I think I recall saying I’m not a huge fan of the bright color. My stylist did note this one was a slightly different shade but It’s still not for me. Plus it didn’t fit – I felt lumpy and I couldn’t get it zipped up all the way! Too much Valentine’s candy, I suppose.

Pixley – Edmond Chevron Print Shirt – $54 – Right out of the box, I loved this top! Even more so when I put it on. It fits really well, the rayon spandex blend is very soft, and I love the chevron print (typical blogger statement). The problem is, it seems like I am always drawn to dark blues and purples for my tops and the point of Stitch Fix is to try new things, isn’t it? Would have loved to have received this top in some different colors – maybe something a little brighter for summer.

Henry & Belle – Tianna Straight Leg Jean – $158 – These were cute but a little tight at the waist (despite the stretchy material). I love the idea of capris but I remembered after putting these on that they always make me look a little stumpy. What do you think? But ultimately it doesn’t matter because I would never spend $150 on a pair of jeans. They would have to be, like, the most wonderful greatest pair of jeans on the planet and come with a lifetime warranty.

Pixley – Ryder Colorblock Dress – $78 – This dress is really cute. I liked all the colors together and it fit near perfect (just a little bit of armpit pudge). But I really feel I’m way too old for this dress. This is an adorable dress for a 15 year old, maybe. Not a 35 year old.

So which item(s) did I keep?

Stitch Fix #5 - Spring & Summer Style

I kept the chevron top! It really did fit well and I suppose there’s a reason I have so much navy blue and purple in my wardrobe. I feel really comfortable in it.

Did I make the right choice? What items would you have kept for yourself?

  1. Out of the box, I didn’t like any of the things you got, BUT after you tried them on, I became a fan. I knew you’d keep the Chevron top! lol It didn’t speak to me out of the box, but it looks great on you. I actually liked them with the capris and I’m not a fan of capris in general or white pants. Good call on sending them back. You can find similar ones for way less. Even a plain white skirt would look great with it. Out of all these things I probably would’ve only kept the dress for myself. It’s adorable, but way overpriced for what it is. I think you looked great in it. 🙂

  2. Agreed. If the sweetheart neckline of the dress lined up with your own “sweethearts”, I think it would’ve been more of a keeper.
