My June Stitch Fix has arrived, and sadly most of it did not work out this time.
I was excited to see a bright salmon colored item, some yellow (hurray!!) and a green and blue patterned item. Not too exited about the grey.
Bay to Baules – Serratoga Double Layer Leaf Necklace $32
It was a pretty enough necklace and the price was fine, but the two layers kept getting twisted together and I knew it would constantly be annoying me.
Verdict – Sent back.
Tart – Baylie Abstract Print Fitted Dress $128
When I first pulled this one out of the box, it was so short I wasn’t sure if it was a tunic top or a dress. Turns out it was a very short dress.
Not only was it way too short on me, but there was a deep v in the back and I was super uncomfortable in it. It did nothing for my figure whatsoever. Also $128 for a knit dress that was poorly made and had a hole in the back just seemed ridiculous.
Verdict – Going back, quickly!
Pomelo – Downing Striped Knit Shirt $44
I had been asking for a yellow item since my very first fix (15 fixes ago now) and this is the first yellow item. I was excited for the color, and the fit was cute, but for some reason there were these little nubs in the fabric (hard to explain) that made it really itchy. I would only want to wear this on the weekends as a casual top but the fabric would make me pass it up in the closet. So unfortunately this cute little top is also going back.
Verdict – sadly, going back
41Hawthorn – Linda Cross Front Knit Top $54
Now if you notice, so far everything is going back. But this was by far the worst offender.
Look a little familiar? In a previous fix I got a tank very similar to this that I called the Miss America reject:
It might not be quite as bad, but it’s bad.
It boldly highlights every lump and bump and gives me an odd “pregnant with an alien baby” look.
Verdict – please remove this from my body and my sight.
Tart – Juliano Chevron Print Twist Shoulder Cowl Neck Top $88
At last, something I might consider keeping. But $88??? It seemed really high for just one stretchy knit top. The cowl neck was really fussy, and I was right about to just return everything and take the $20 styling fee loss on this one until I tried it on with a white linen blazer. Suddenly I could see myself wearing this to a presentation at work and it seemed like it might be worth the extra $68 to keep it.
Verdict – reluctantly keep
Well, this wasn’t the best fix I have gotten. The dress was completely wrong for my body, the tank was a disaster, and the yellow tee while a good try was just not comfortable enough. So I ended up keeping one top for a total of $88 which eats into my clothing budget for a month with only one item to show. Since this seemed to be an outlier, I decided to give it one more go in June and scheduled my next fix for 3 weeks out. My fingers are crossed that I get at least 2 pieces I like in the next one. I requested a nice summer weight outer layer like a jacket or blazer, and maybe some bottoms if they have curvy style. We’ll see what happens with a second June box.
