Stitch Fix: August 2017 Review

It’s been a few months (April) since I’ve done a Stitch Fix review, so I’m excited to have a new one for you today! Believe it or not, this is actually #24! It’s hard to believe that I’ve now received 24 boxes from Stitch Fix. Whoa!

I actually received a “fix” back in June requesting some items for the BlogHer conference and my birthday, but it was pretty terrible. As in wrong style, wrong sizes, just wrong, wrong, wrong. I reached out to Stitch Fix expressing my disappointment, and they offered to waive my styling fee this time around to make up for it. Let’s see how my new stylist did this time around.

Stitch Fix August 2017

August Mist Juleen Metallic Dot Knit Top ($38)

When I first pulled this out of the box, it looked SO small. In fact, I was thinking my 10 year-old sister would be able to wear it instead! But I was pleasantly surprised when I put it on and found that it stretched (not in a bad way) to fit me, and wasn’t clingy (like I thought it’d be). I like that this can be worn as is when the weather’s warm, and would also look great with a cardigan or jacket over! Verdict: Kept

Californian Stitch Carola Wide Leg Pant ($48)

“Ummmm what?!” was my reaction to these pants before, during, and after seeing and trying them on. My stylist wrote that these would give me some Reese Witherspoon vibes which I was excited to hear reading when I read her note, but when I saw what the pants looked like I was very confused. While they do feel comfortable on, they’re SO not my style. They reminded me of a mix between an accordion and window blinds. Just… weird. Verdict: Returned

Renee C Jayani Racerback Top ($38)

I’m not normally a fan of shirts that show too much upper arm (this girl needs to start doing some more arm workouts), but I really liked this racerback top! The colors are bright and fun, and it’s a great addition to my wardrobe for summer! Also, more on these jeans below, but I’m obsessed! Verdict: Kept

Nine Britton Nicola Knit Midi Dress ($50)

The color of this midi dress is GORGEOUS. I was on the fence on this one but ultimately decided I didn’t love it enough to keep it. The front was a bit awkward, especially in the waist area with the band (sometimes you just can win with dresses with those). Verdict: Returned

Liverpool Elizabeth Super Skinny Jean ($78)

I’ve received Liverpool pants from Stitch Fix before, and they’re always my favorite item in the box! This brand seriously knows what’s up when it comes to comfort AND style. This pair of jeans was no exception. While I know I’ve sworn off keeping jeans before, I couldn’t resist this pair because (1) I appreciate a good pair of stretchy jeans (this has a waistband instead of a button) and (2) I feel like they’re very flattering, which can be a hard quality to find in clothing! Plus, most of my jeans (at least the ones I wear all the time) are darker, and these are a little lighter. #Variety, ya know? Verdict: Kept

This fix was MUCH better than the last one and as you can see, I ended up keeping 3 out of the 5 items sent. I’m thinking I’ll sign up for one more next month to (hopefully) get some good fall pieces before my fall travel, since fall is my fave season for clothing!

What are your favorite summertime clothing pieces? Do you have any faves from this fix?

  • Totally agree with all of your choices this go-around! I love the grey tank top and the jeans look awesome on you!

    • Thank you!! So glad I got some keepers this time around!

  • I’ve never heard of Stitch Fix before! That grey tank looks awesome on you, I love it! You’ll be able to style it in so many different ways.

    • It’s amazing! My fave way to buy new clothes, for sure!

  • Nicole Leith

    I had too many misses with StitchFix and haven’t used them in a long time. Looks like you got a pretty good box this time around. I especially love the tops in this one.

    • Aww bummer, I’m sorry to hear that. Did you have a Pinterest board set up and request specific things? I’ve found that really helps!

  • Love the tops you received! They are so cute!

  • Brenda Melendez

    I like the 3 items you kept. I think my daughter would like all of them also, and I might also like the jeans, especially since they don’t have a button.

    • The jeans are SO comfy! Definitely a brand I recommend!

  • Audrey Knizek

    LOVE that racerback top! It’s so flattering on you. I agree about the pants though…what even are those?! Haha!

    • Thanks, Audrey! My thoughts EXACTLY on those pants, haha. No thanks!

  • Amanda Faber

    Such cute pieces!! And I love those jeans!!

    • Aren’t they amazing?! So thrilled to have them!

  • Tami

    I actually like everything you got (except those accordion pants, haha!) I LOVE those jeans and that racer-back top the most – they’re so cute! I got Liverpool jeans in my fix last month and they’re such great quality and super flattering!

    • Me too! As soon as I got my first pair of Liverpool pants I was like where have these been all my life?! Love them!

  • Those jeans look so good on you! Also loving that racerback top.

  • Too bad the dress didn’t work out because the color was so pretty. You managed to snag some pretty great stuff though! I got jeans in my Stitch Fix as well and love them!!!

    • I know, I was really torn on it! But told myself if don’t love something 100% that I shouldn’t keep it. I’m glad you got jeans you love too! Yay!!

  • So sad to see you returned those wide leg pants. So cute on you!

    • Thanks, Alexis! I just felt SO awkward about them, haha. The material/texture was definitely something I wasn’t digging.

  • thesophiadiaries

    wow looks like you got some great finds this time! that grey top is so cute! what a great transition to fall piece <3

    • I did! Really pleased with a lot of the stuff my stylist sent!

  • I would have kept and returned the exact items! Love the top you kept. It’s such a fun print. :)

  • I did it a few times! My first box was amazing! and then it just kept going downhill and I got some AWFUL pieces so I cancelled after 3 boxes because it just wasn’t worth it. They also kept sending me items WAY more expensive then I had specified – but jokes on them because I found amazing jeans that fit me, and found them on ebay for half off NWT!

    • Oh no! That’s really frustrating. But yay for your win finding a good, new pair on eBay! I’ll need to keep an eye out for my fave brands on there!

  • yay for a good fix! that is awesome they waived your styling fee after a bummer box. that dress is such a gorgeous colour but i totally understand not keeping it. you gotta love it! i haven’t done a stitch fix in over a year, i might have to do one soon!

    • Exactly! I was keeping things that I wasn’t 100% crazy about and ended up not wearing them, so I’m trying to be pickier with things I keep! You should definitely give it a try again soon!

  • That’s great to hear they have good customer service and waived your styling fee. I still haven’t tried a stitch fix, I’m so picky so I’m too scared I’ll waste the styling fee…I do love that dress color too!

    • If you have a Pinterest board with your favorite styles and request specific things, you should be ok! Also, when you first sign up you get a $20 credit so you don’t have to worry about wasting the styling fee money! You should give it a try!

  • Stitch fix does jeans so well! I’ve had almost 30 fixes but I haven’t gotten one in a few months! I actually really liked those wide leg pants on you – theyre a cool statement style!

    • They really do! I love the Liverpool + Kut From the Kloth brands!

  • Great fix! I have one coming in two weeks. I just pinned the two tops to my Stitch Fix pinterest because they are both really cute. And I can so relate to the elastic waist dresses, I can never win with those.

    • Yay! I hope you got them in your fix along with some other great pieces!

  • I lovvvve the dress you didn’t keep and the skinny jeans look great on you! I have bought a few boxes, but I can’t afford a $80 dress and they kept sending me items around that price range. All of the items I have bought from them though, I have loved and have worn over and over.

    • Ugh, that’s so frustrating. I do wish they sent more items at a lower price point, but I guess if they’re pricier and I wear them enough it evens out in the end!

  • mckenna bleu

    I love those items! That top that you kept looks great on you!

  • Kristen Jones

    Those skinny jeans look great on you! I love the metallic dot top, too!

    • Thanks, Kristen! Those were my fave items in the fix too!

  • I love the purple dress on you, I think you should reconsider. The metallic dot top is cute too!

    • Thanks, Anna! I ended up sending it back because I didn’t love it 100% but I hope I get something similar in that same color that works a little better!

  • I love the items you kept! The pants definitely don’t seem to fit with the rest of the box. I got four Stitch Fix boxes earlier this year – one of my boxes was a HUGE hit and I kept everything, but my last box was such a flop that I decided to stop my subscription for a little while.

    xoxo, Paige

    • Thanks, Paige! I was really surprised they sent those pants too! I guess hits and misses come with the seasons as well. I’m not much of a summer clothing fan!

  • I love the items you kept, but that pink dress looked great on you as well!! Glad they did better this time!

    • Thanks, Sara! I didn’t love it 100% so I decided to send it back. Trying to be better about that, haha. I loved the color of the dress though!

  • You look great in everything! Super cute looks!

  • Tori Dunlap

    I’ve heard of Stitch Fix, but never knew what it was for! haha Looks like a super interesting service.

    • It’s the best! I always have trouble finding good clothes when I shop in store, so I appreciate getting things based on my style profile sent to my door!

  • Anna Hubbard

    Glad you got some good items! Too bad the dress didn’t work out, that color is so pretty!

    • Thanks, Anna! I loved the color of the dress too! I’m hopeful I’ll be able to find something similar soon that works a little better!

  • meghan king

    Everything you got was super cute! I have my fix delivered every four months and I always look forward to seeing what I’m going to get!
    xx Meghan

    • Yay! I hope you get some great pieces in your next one!

  • Lots of great pieces! I especially love the racerback top. The pattern is so pretty! Also, good call on those wide leg pants. I’m not too keen on them either.

    • I love the racerback top too! Definitely didn’t think I’d be a fan when I first pulled it out of the box, so it was a a nice surprise!

  • You look so great in these! I’m not a big wide leg pant, but I heard they’re coming back in style!

    • Thanks, Ashley! I’m not into them either, but they definitely seem to be making a comeback! Maybe if they change the material things would be better, haha.

  • Amy

    My boyfriend’s mom uses stitchfix and loves it! I love the pieces you got, especially the pink dress!

    • That’s awesome! Have you given it a try yourself yet?

  • I have never heard of stitchfix! sounds interesting!!

    • It’s the best clothing styling service! You should definitely check it out if you’re in the market for some new clothes :)

  • I loved the colour of that midi dress! But yes those pants were not so great haha!

    Jennifer Ashley //

    • Ohhh those pants, haha. I loved the dress color too! Hoping I can get something similar in a future fix!

  • Such a great haul, minus those pants ;] I haven’t done SF in a while because I was disappointed in my last few boxes — but maybe I should again!

    xx katie // a touch of teal

    • You definitely should! My favorite time of year for clothes is fall/winter and I’ve gotten so many great things from SF at that time!
