Stitch Fix August 2015 (Fix No. 7)
Technically, this fix arrived in July. Between work and family obligations, however, I’m just now getting around to writing about it. Hopefully, I’ll have a second August fix to post in a few weeks!
This was my 7th fix and I still feel like it’s Christmas morning each time that box comes! It was actually dark outside when I picked up my box from the porch, but I waited until the following morning to open it, so I could photograph the stack of clothes in better light. That took A LOT of self control, so I’m pretty proud of myself!
What I Asked For:
For this fix, I wrote: “I adored the necklace in my last fix! I’d love more jewelry like it. Although it’s still 90 degrees outside (and will be for some time), I’m already thinking about pieces I can wear in the fall. I’d definitely be interested in some transitional pieces and less summer items (i.e., shorts; summer dresses.)”
What I Received:
I received the Corinna Striped Dolman Top by Market & Spruce in my June fix and this top is very similar in terms of fit and material. Here’s a picture to compare:
I kept that version, but didn’t keep this one. As with the Corinna sweater, this one was super comfortable and I love the burgundy. That said, this isn’t actually the most flattering cut on me. I therefore would mostly wear it around the house and I can’t justify two such sweaters.
Care Instructions: Dry Clean Only
If you like it: This top from Macy’s has a similar feel, but, if you like the Sawyer sweater, I strongly suggest requesting it in your next fix. The material on Stitch Fix’s version is really the best.
This was another item that I debated keeping. I actually didn’t make my decision on this item until right before I dropped my return package off. The pink color of the back of the sweatshirt is perfect and I like that it’s a pretty unique item. I ended up returning it because the neckline and sleeves weren’t very flattering on me.
Care Instructions: Hand Wash Cold/Tumble Dry
I’m so glad my fix contained another necklace I loved. I actually don’t like fringe, so surprised myself by liking this necklace. It’s a good quality necklace for the price.
This was the first piece I ever received from Stitch Fix of which I was not satisfied with the quality. The material was 100% cotton, but felt stiff and cheap. Combine that with the price and the fact that it was dry clean only, and this was a definite return for me.
Care Instructions: Dry Clean Only.
If you like it: Considering how many striped sweaters are out there, it was strange that I had trouble finding one that looked exactly like this one. This version comes close and is only $20!
When I first took this out of the box, I really didn’t think I’d like it. I feel like dresses with this cut are generally not very flattering on me. I ended up LOVING this dress, however. It was very flattering for my figure. It definitely showed off my butt, which was fine with me, but I figured I’d share that for people who aren’t as keen on flaunting this feature. I also loved that this dress hits two trends: the popover trend and the split back. I can’t wait to wear this dress.
Care Instructions: Hand Wash/Lay Flat to Dry
If you like it: This is really a unique dress and I didn’t find anything like it. This dress features the popover aspect and the stripes of the one from my fix, as does this one. I also like this popover dress, although it’s nothing like the above! Erin from Living in Yellow received the long-sleeved version of this dress in her March fix, so requesting that version is another option.
My fixes keep getting better and better! I only kept two items, but I almost kept four and, if I had, it would have been cheaper to keep all 5, with the 25% discount. I’m also impressed with Kimberly’s picks and her attention to my Pinterest board.
