We’ve been having a crazy heat wave here in the Pacific Northwest so for this stitch fix I requested knit fabrics and skirts and dresses:
Here’s what I got:
Marlyn Schiff – Aliza Stone Teardrop Earrings $28
I didn’t take a separate picture of these and while the color is nice, they reminded me so much of the cheap earrings you get paired with a necklace at Charming Charlie. I wouldn’t have kept these if it wasn’t for the 5 item discount.
Pixley – Randa Tiered Knit Top $48
While the fabric was a soft knit and it had a nice fitted silhouette, I didn’t care for the lack of color and the weird gathers hit me in very unflattering places and had the effect of making me look like an armadillo. Again, I wouldn’t have kept this if it weren’t for the 5 item discount. More on that later.
Gilli – Tyra Maxi Dress $88
I loved the color of this (it’s bright orange, hard to tell with the pic) and I loved that I could easily wear a bra with it. When I tried it on I liked the way it looked okay but felt it made me look a little bit wider in the hips. Now that I see this photo I’m not so sure the shape is working for me. Not sure I should have kept this one?
Papermoon – Remmie Printed Maxi Skirt $58
The fabric on this is sooo soft and I love the colors. It was a little bit big in the waist though. I complained when Lindsey sent me a size small maxi skirt, but now I think it might have made sense. The waistband was just really loose on this, but I did like the way it fit my hips better. I guess I’m between sizes.
Pixley – Ohara Faux Wrap Tie-Waist Dress $68
I love this dress. The fabric is great, the fit is great, and the color is nice. Perfect for work!
When I was done trying everything on, I was all set to send back the armadillo tee, and the earrings but quickly found out that I would be spending $3 less than if I kept all 5 items because of the 25% discount. I figured even if I donate the armadillo top to the local charity shop it’s worth the $3 for the earrings. I wish the prices were a bit more reasonable if you’re not keeping all 5 items, but overall I was really pleased with the soft fabrics and the pops of color this time. I still didn’t get my requested stylist Lindsey because they said she’s still on vacation, but Joannie did a good job on this one. I already went ahead and scheduled my next stitch fix for August and can’t wait to see what I get!

Ahh, totally jealous about that last dress – I got it a few months ago but it was super mini short on me. Love the maxi, too!
love the tan sandles you are wearing in the first pic with the black shirt and khaki shorts – where from?
They are Nine West Sacco sandals from DSW.
