Stitch Fix August Review

This month’s stitch fix was somewhat disappointing, but I did get one incredible item.  Here’s what I requested:

And Here’s what I got.  Mostly dark colors…

Stitch Fix August 2015

 

Bancroft – Cambridge Metal Belt Cuff Bracelet  $28

I didn’t care for this bracelet, it just wasn’t my style and was uncomfortable for someone who is typing all day.

Market & Spruce – Leavenworth Sleeveless Top $44

To be fair, I did pin this on my pinterest board, but in person the colors were more navy/red than purple/red like it looked in the picture from Stitch Fix.  Also the collar hit me uncomfortably and if I’m wearing a sleeveless top I don’t want a high neck.

Leota – Abilene Polka Dot Dress $148

I fell in love with this dress before I saw the price.  The cut, the fabric, the polka dots!  I loved everything but was a bit sticker shocked when I saw the price.  Despite that I decided this was the one item I was keeping this month.  I already wore it to work.

Tart – Kaylie Solid French Terry Blazer $128

Again, this just wasn’t my style.  It was very “Academic/Preppy” which I don’t really wear and had shoulder pads.  Also a really high price tag for a knit blazer.  I was surprised at the price of the items this month!

Brixon Ivy – Steph Dress $58

Absolutely not.  This is a very thin knit cut in a very unflattering nightgown shape.  She said she sent this because I had pinned a similar dress from the stitch fix pinterest page, but on the stick thin twiggy model this looked adorable.  With my figure, a shapeless nightgown is not something I’d ever wear or pick for myself.  I wish the stylist kept the client’s body type in mind when picking items not the literal things they saw on pinterest.  I like the idea or look of some things but not the literal translation for me.

Overall Impressions

So while I was happy with my adorable (albeit expensive) polka dot dress, the rest of the items were off and not at all my style or right for my body type.  I signed up for a September fix but am considering cancelling it and purchasing a pair of Hunter boots I’ve been eyeing on the Nordstrom site… What do you think?
