June Stitch Fix Review

My June Stitch Fix has arrived, and sadly most of it did not work out this time.

Some colors!

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

Gold Leaf Necklace

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

Dress or tunic?

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 for me

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

Yellow at last!

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

Looks promising…

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

Overall Impression

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.

  1. I have tried Stitch Fix as well and I am 49, blond, blue-eyed, 120 lb, athletic woman (all in my profile) and they kept sending me clothes that my mother would wear. Returned everything each time and said no thank you. I can do better on my own.
