Stitch Fix Review: My August Fix

I tried Stitch Fix for the first time last month, and it was such a fun experience that I decided to try it again this month. The concept is perfect for me right now; I don't have a lot of time to go out and shop, plus I love the surprise element of not knowing exactly what I'll get in my fix. It was reading other bloggers' reviews that made me want to try Stitch Fix myself, so I try to make my reviews as detailed as possible in the hopes that it helps you decide whether it's right for you.

Here's what I got in my August fix:

{one} 41 Hawthorn - Filbert 3/4 Sleeve Popover Blouse, Small: $58

A white blouse is actually something I've been wanting to add to my wardrobe; however, this just wasn't quite the right one. You can't tell because it's tucked in, but it's really long. That works for tucking, but I'd like to be able to wear it un-tucked as well, and that just didn't work. Also, I didn't love the sheerness of the fabric or the style of the sleeves.

Verdict: Return

{two} Margaret M - Francesca Pencil Skirt, Small: $78

Okay, this was the only item in my fix that was an immediate "no." You know I love me a colored pencil skirt, but this one was hugging my curves in all the wrong places. Also, even if it did flatter me I just can't justify paying $78 for another blue pencil skirt (I have both a navy blue and turquoise version).

Verdict: Return

{three} Pixley - Meryl Tulip Print Sleeveless Blouse, Small: $54

Now this one I loved right out of the box, and I hoped that I loved it as much on. The tulip print is so whimsical, and it's not one I've seen very often. The fact that it's done in a neutral gray color makes it wearable and not too cutesy looking. I love the loose, but not too loose, swingy shape, and I know it will be great over skinny jeans but just as cute tucked into a pencil skirt for work. I love this top!

Verdict: Keep (if you couldn't tell)

{four} Kut from the Kloth - Siena Cropped Pant, 6: $58

My August Stitch Fix Review |

The word I would use for these pants (on me) would be "meh." They just didn't quite fit right--the waist and thighs were a little loose, while the calves were weirdly snug. I really have the hardest time with pants; finding a pair that fits well seems to be next to impossible.

Verdict: Return

{five} 41Hawthorn - Jace Chevron Print Dress, Medium: $68

My August Stitch Fix Review |

In the box, this dress looked just okay to me. However, when I put it on I loved the pattern and the style. It's fully lined and clearly well-made, which makes the $68 price tag a little easier to swallow. However, it was just too loose in the shoulders, and it would need to be taken in there for me to feel comfortable. I'm sure it's an easy alteration, but it's just not something I have time to think about right now. I'm not sure if sizing down to a small would have made a difference, but I doubt it since everywhere else it fit great. This one made me wish I had some sewing skills!

Verdict: Return, sadly.

Do you get clothes altered? I know I should if I find something I like, but it's something I rarely take the time to do.
