My First Stitch Fix Review: My July Fix

This month I signed up for Stitch Fix, something that I'd been thinking about for a long time. It appealed to me not only because of reviews I've seen on other blogs, but also because even when I have money to shop (which is not as often as I'd like) one thing I don't have is time. Stitch Fix makes shopping easy by sending five pieces, based on the style profile I filled out and link to my summer style Pinterest board, which I can choose from and keep all or none. I really enjoy reading others' Stitch Fix reviews, so I thought I'd share mine here.

Here's what I got in my July fix.

{one} Bay to Baubles - Piper Teardrop Bauble Necklace: $34

I love that my stylist, Katrina, sent me a bright statement necklace, because this is a detail I love adding to outfits. However, for some reason I just didn't love this one. I can't even say exactly why, I just know that to me it wasn't worth $34.

Verdict: Return

{two} Hailey 23 - Gavin Striped Dress, Medium: $68


Stitch Fix Review: July 2015 | www.shealennon.com

Guys, I really wanted to love this dress. After my Old Navy striped dress shrunk, I've been keeping my eye out for another one, because it's something I know I'll wear all the time. It isn't too obvious in the photos (surprisingly--usually photos are the worst!), but it was not flattering. The area just below the waistline was very clingy; that area of my body has never been my favorite, and it's even less so since the whole 9 months of growing a human thing happened a couple of years ago.

Verdict: Return, regretfully

{three} Skies are Blue - Kavinski Button Down Blouse, Small: $44

I was impressed by the quality of this blouse, and this is something I would totally pick for myself and try on at a store. I liked it, however I just didn't love the fit. It was a little loose overall, and the shape just didn't really flatter me. For $44, I just didn't like it enough to keep.

Verdict: Return

{four} Dear John - Lillie Cuffed Short, 6: $58

I liked these and they fit well, although once I rolled them up they felt a little short. However, I already have a pair of jean shorts (seen here) that I really like, so I just couldn't justify having another really similar pair.

Verdict: Return

{five} 41Hawthorn - Shalley Split Neck Blouse, Small: $48

I loved this blouse! You know how I've been talking about wanting to add more color to my wardrobe this summer, and this one fits the bill. I love the cobalt and bright pink, and the pattern is fun and different from anything I have in my closet. I immediately thought of several ways I could wear it. Although $48 is more than what I typically spend on a top, I think it's worth keeping.

Verdict: Keep!

Overall, I had a great experience with Stitch Fix. I felt like my stylist listened to what I wanted and looked at my blog and Pinterest board, and really used those things in her selections. I liked all the items I got, even though I didn't love them all on, which is pretty normal for any shopping trip. I also didn't have the budget to buy everything, so honestly I'm relieved that it was a pretty easy decision for me. I'm hoping to sign up for another Fix next month, although I haven't signed up for the automatic monthly delivery. Right now with all the house stuff we have going on I'm just going to play it month to month depending on our budget. But for those unsure and thinking to try it, I would wholeheartedly recommend Stitch Fix!

Have you tried Stitch Fix? Are there any subscription boxes you receive each month?
