Stitch Fix #11 Review

Last time around my Stitch Fix (#10) was a bust. To make up for the wrong sizing + style, Stitch Fix offered to cover my $20 styling fee this time around, which is/was much appreciated! This time around I requested some options for dresses to wear to the wedding I was attending, and other fun end of summer pieces. Here’s what I was sent.

Dear John Finnegan Roll Cuff Chino Short ($58)

These shorts weren’t terrible, but they weren’t great either. They were a dressier type of material, but I don’t find myself needing dressy shorts ever really, so I decided to send these back. If they had been a bit cheaper, I probably would’ve kept them. Verdict: Returned

Market & Spruce Sam Hi-Lo Short Sleeve Tee ($44)

(Yes this is the same photo as above). Although this shirt is plain and there’s not a whole lot to it style-wise, I really liked it! The material was super soft and it’s a tee that can be dressed up or down, which is always a plus! It’s also definitely more than I’d ever spend on a shirt like this, but I cringed at the thought of losing $20 for the styling fee and I did like it, so I went for it. Verdict: Kept

41Hawthorn Sugar Dot Print Dress ($74)

This was one of the dress options sent to wear to the wedding I was attending. I’m fine with polka dots but this just seemed a little much. Plus, the waistline wasn’t right on me and it just wasn’t super flattering overall, so back it went. Verdict: Returned

Mo: Vint Angelus Button Back Top ($54)

I was on the fence about this top. While I thought the style was fun (perfect for falls in Florida), I’m not a fan of wearing the “muscle shirts,” where my arms are fully exposed. After going back and forth, I decided against keeping this one. $54 is too much to pay if I’m not totally sold on it. Verdict: Returned

plaid sleeveless top

Gilli Taylan Dress ($64)

Right out of the box, I knew this dress wouldn’t be a keeper. While it wasn’t totally clingy, it wasn’t flowy enough to be flattering, and the pattern wasn’t too “me.”  Verdict: Returned

I’m not sure what happened to my stylist Emily (maybe she left the company?) but I miss her and I wish Stitch Fix would give her back!

If it was still summer, I’d probably take a break from Stitch Fix for a bit (summer is my least favorite season besides my birthday), but since fall is just around the corner and I have some trips coming up, I’m going to see what kind of fall clothing is chosen for me next time around. I’ve already seen some really great pieces on their social media accounts!

    oh that sucks you weren’t able to find a dress – both dresses look super cute in the pictures, but understand your reasons for returning them. i actually really like the top you kept, love how it’s longer in the back!

      Thanks, I’m glad I kept it! I might’ve kept one of the dresses if I wasn’t intent on finding a dress for the wedding (neither seemed good for what I needed at the time). On the bright side, I ended up wearing a dress from a Fix a while back :)

    Such a bummer! My fixes have been a bust lately too. My last one was closer, so I’m hoping at least I’ll get the same stylist and we’ll be back on track :)

      Who’s your stylist? I’m hoping with fall clothes things will start to get better! Can’t wait to see your fix!

    I really liked the last dress on you, but the pattern is a bit bold, especially for a wedding. The tee is awesome though. It looks super comfy!

    • September 10, 2015 / 8:38 PM

      I really love it! I could sleep all day in it! I felt the same way about the pattern being a little much. If I wasn’t set on finding a dress for the wedding, I might’ve kept it!

    I hate that you’ve had such bad luck lately! I’ve had similar issues- the clothes look good on the hanger, but the fit is not right. I have a fall box coming next week so I’m keeping my fingers crossed! Hope your next fix is better!

    • September 10, 2015 / 8:41 PM

      Ugh, it’s so frustrating! I hope you get a good fix this time around! I love fall clothes so I’m hoping they’ll start to get better soon!

    I’ve been meaning to subscribe soon! It’s good to know that they’ll make any mistakes right!

    • September 10, 2015 / 8:40 PM

      Yes! You should give it a try. I’m thinking the fall/winter picks will be great – those were my favorite fixes last year!

    I have never heard of Stitchfix, I will have to check them out! Thanks for sharing!

      Having a stylist pick out clothes and ship them to your doorstep is great! Sometimes it’s hit or miss, but I’ve gotten some of my fave outfits from them!

    From quite a few people’s posts lately it seems like StitchFix has been struggling with good orders. I hope that’s just a coincidence and everybody starts getting great fixes like we’re used to!

    • September 10, 2015 / 8:39 PM

      I so agree! I’m thinking things will start looking up with fall fixes. You just can’t go wrong with fall clothes (… or at least I hope not lol)!

    After reading a few posts on stitch fix the last few months, I’m not sure if I would try stitch fix now. It seems that your impressed with them right now???

    • September 11, 2015 / 11:15 AM

      It hasn’t been stellar the past few months, but summer is also my least fave clothing season in general. Last month was a complete bust though and I reached out to the company and they tried to make things right (which I’m impressed by). My best fixes have come between fall and spring, so I’m hoping that’ll be the case again this year.

    I haven’t done stitchfix in a while. I keep seeing so many people strike out and my last one was super pricey! Nordstrom rack has been my go to lately.

    I haven’t done Stitch Fix in a while, but I do love a few of the pieces I have got in the past!
