May 2015 Stitch Fix Review (Fix #24!)

May 2015 Stitch Fix Review - virginiasweetpea.comSometimes I wonder if Stitch Fix keeps a record of how many “fixes” each customer has received.  I have a feeling that I am one of their top loyal customers as I just received my 24th shipment.

I love getting an email letting me know that a “fix” is on the way.  I wasn’t expecting this one until Thursday and was pleasantly surprised when it was waiting for me after school on Wednesday.

If you aren’t familiar with Stitch Fix, after filling out a style profile, five items are sent to you that your personal stylist thinks that you’ll like.  I request to only receive clothing but you can also receive jewelry and hand bags.  Shipments come to you as often as you’d like, I choose to get one every month.  You can see what was in my May 2015 box here.  I kept a dress and cardigan and love both!

Pulling the neatly wrapped bundle of clothing out of the box each month is so exciting.

May 2015 Stitch Fix

 

Since I’ll be attending the Haven Conference in July, I asked my stylist to send clothing that would be great to wear there.  Each month your stylist sends a note along with your items.  You also receive style cards with pictures suggesting two ways to wear each piece.

Stitch Fix for May 2015

 

Amy Embroidered Skirt and Fun2Fun Blouse

It’s been a number of years since I’ve owned a longer skirt.  When I pulled the Amy Embroidered Skirt out of the box, I liked it immediately because of the fun pattern along both the hem and waist line.  Elizabeth, my stylist, suggested wearing this skirt with the Fun2Fun black tank tucked in.  I couldn’t get it to look right tucked in, so I left it out.

I love this blouse but not with this skirt.  The lace detail at the top is pretty and I think that this would look great with a different skirt or with shorts.

 

Barrymore Solid Pleat Detail Top

Elizabeth suggested to wear the Barrymore Solid Pleat Detail Top with a black pencil skirt that I received in a previous fix.  She’s right, this top would look great with that skirt.  I paired it with the Amy Embroidered Skirt to see if I would like the two together and I do.

I didn’t like the orange top tucked in and wanted to show this skirt’s cute patterned waist, so a looked in my closet for another blouse that could possibly work with this skirt.  A navy top, also from Stitch Fix, looks better tucked in than the previous two blouses did.

The necklace is from Rocksbox and I’m planning to buy it.  (Rocksbox is similar to Stitch Fix but it’s jewelry instead of clothing.  You can wear the three items sent to you for a month and then you either buy what you like or send it back postage free.  See this post for a discount code.)

41 Hawthorn Noah Textured Dress

This dress is so comfortable!  It has hidden pockets which is a fun feature.  This is a dress that I could easily pack for my conference without worrying about wrinkles and comfortably wear all day.  It also is perfect for work.

This dress’s fabric is thick for a summer dress, so I probably wouldn’t wear it to an outdoor event on a hot summer day.

41 Hawthorn Rocco Faux Wrap Tank Dress

I always have loved a wrap dress and this one is no exception.  This is a perfect travel dress, it could be balled up in a suitcase and pulled out with no wrinkles.  It’s super comfortable and I’ve always loved navy blue.  I remember one of my first years of teaching one of my girls asked me if I knew that I’d worn something navy for 7 days in a row.  🙂

My necklace is vintage.  My aunt let me have my grandmother’s jewelry and it was among her things.  It could have been hers or it could have belonged to one of her aunts.  I hope my aunt will remember the original owner.  I wore it to school not long ago and several of my girls commented on it.

Stitch Fix charges a $20 styling fee that is deducted from what you purchase.  If you purchase all five items, you get a 25% discount.  I almost always buy one item per month and two times have purchased all five items.

I really struggled with what to keep this month.  It’s great when you like nearly every item and have a debate over what to keep.  I finally had my husband read this post and make the decision for me.  He’s always been able to shop for me and pick out things that I like.  Just ask my tennis friends, one in particular wants him to be her personal shopper for tennis.

 

Amy Embroidered SkirtReturned

I liked this skirt but it was over my budget and I worried that I would get it dirty too quickly when I wear it to work.

Market and Spruce TopReturned

I didn’t like this enough to keep.  The back is longer than the front and I already have several tops with this design.  Also, orange is not my favorite color to wear.

Fun2Fun Lace Detailed Blouse –  Returned

I really liked this blouse but decided to invest my money in the dresses since I can use them for both work and Haven.

    This was such a great post as I’ve not heard about this clothing service before. Ur descriptions were so helpful and I’m surprised at the seemingly great quality too. Just one suggestion would’ve like to have seen the prices noted as that is the biggest part of the equation in readers determining the value and whether it is affordable for our budget or even comparable to what we buy elsewhere. I will spend $200 on a dress easily if I love it and it’s good quality made in the U.S. Like everlane has excellent quality pieces all made in the U.S. So you see and know the process and what quality you receive. Would like to see more of that info in posts so not to have to go to the site and find it and possibly be disappointed things are made in China or out of my price range. Thanks!

      Including prices is a great suggestion, Kimberly. I actually debated whether to do that or not. Just so you know, the two dresses that I kept were $68 and $84. I have found the clothes to be of very high quality.

    I got that blue wrap dress too. I don’t like the tie so I wear it with a leopard belt from Target. It’s my favorite dress, but I’ve received sooo many good ones. I pinned the other dress, and I’m hoping they send it to me.

    PS I’m sure somewhere is the number of your fixes. I remember being shocked by my number (15? 18?), but I’ve only kept all five items twice)
