It’s time for my birthday fix review! For this fix, I asked for spring and summer classics, a dress for my birthday, and something to wear to a concert, nude works shoes, and something fun like the pair of amazing green shoes I got two fixes ago. I’m very happy with how my stylist approached this, although she didn’t send anything for a concert.
WHAT IS STITCH FIX?
Stitch Fix is an online personal shopping service! It’s actually quite simple. You are matched with a personal stylist and they send you a box with five items whenever you need, but you can request recurring boxes (the options are seasonal, every couple of months, once a month, and every 2-3 weeks). There is a styling fee of $20 per box, which is credited to anything you purchase. It is free to return anything you don’t want or need! I’m planning on writing a more in depth post about the styling, checkout, and return process soon, so stay tuned for that! To sign up, you can visit Stitch Fix’s website and take the free style quiz. Also, please feel free to use my referral link here!
WHAT I GOT
Cupcakes and Cashmere Balei Tie Front Button Shirt in Green ($98) — RETURNED: I want to keep this shirt so badly, I really do! I love button downs, stripes, green, I love how airy and flowy and springy and cute this top is. But life doesn’t work that way when you’re five feet tall. This shirt felt too long, and the ties hung awkwardly right near my crotch. I know it’s supposed to be cropped, but cropped on other people = normal length on me. Also, it might look fine in the picture, but when I turn to the side it looked weird.
Via Spiga Forte Leather Heel in Taupe ($250) — RETURNED: I just don’t like these. I don’t like the square toe, or taupe in general. Also, they didn’t fit my foot properly and I was about to have one of these horrifying moments.
Kate Spade Fiorella Ponte Cutwork Dress in Navy ($248) — RETURNED: This dress is so sweet and lovely! I was originally skeptical when I pulled it out of the box because it looked really long, but it draped nicely when I put it on. BUT! This dress made me feel self-conscious about my arms. My arms have always been pretty bulky and muscular, and I never feel 100% confident in short sleeves or cap sleeves. It looked cute from the front, but when I turned to the side and saw how large it made my arms look…I just can’t. I don’t want to spend this much on a dress that I won’t be fully confident in.
Rag & Bone High Rise Ankle Skinny Jeans in White ($195) — RETURNED: What are these, pants for ants?! These were WAY too small. I can’t even begin to explain how small these were. I couldn’t get them past my knees. I don’t know a single person who would be tiny enough to fit these who isn’t under 10 years old. No try on photos for these!
Lilly Pulitzer Marvista Knit Wrap Dress in Pink ($178) — KEPT: So, as a good old fashioned New Yorker who frequently wears all black and spent like 75% of my life being really emo and anti-everything, I always thought that I would never be caught dead in Lilly Pulitzer. As I got older, I thought “I will never be caught dead in Lilly Pulitzer…outside of Florida.” In a weird twist of fate, this dress arrived right as my parents bought a house in Florida, so into my closet this goes. Also, this is easily the most flattering thing I have ever put on my body. I get why you Southern folks can’t get enough of this shit.
Thanks for reading!
