May Stitch Fix Review

May 14, 2015

It’s ALWAYS a good day when my monthly Stitch Fix fix surprises me and arrives a few days early! That’s definitely a treat! 馃檪 My April fix was pretty much amazing and I kept every single item in it, so I was extra pumped for my May fix to arrive. Kimberly J. is still my stylist and I really hope it stays that way for, pretty much, forever. Haha!

For this fix review, I’m going back to the original way that I review my fix… I take pictures of each item as I try them on and show you exactly how they look on, what I think of the item (quality, etc.), price point, and whether or not I kept it.

Now, I’ll be honest, this fix was not my favorite. The聽thought聽behind each item was spot on, but fit was definitely an issue in this fix.

Without further ado, let’s get to reviewing my May Stitch Fix fix!

Papermoon “Birch Lace Detail Blouse” – Size XL – $44

Stitch Fix - Papermoon "Birch Lace Detail Blouse" #stitchfix @stitchfix

There’s not much I can really say about this top other than I LOVE LOVE LOVE it. It’s so pretty, the lace detail is on point (or on fleek? haha!), it’s extremely lightweight and comfortable, versatile in that I can easily dress it up or down, and the price point was definitely right on.

It was a DEFINITE keep!!聽Stitch Fix - Papermoon "Birch Lace Detail Blouse" #stitchfix @stitchfix

Bay to Baubles “Esla Feather Earrings” – $28

I will be honest, I was torn on these earrings. They’re really sturdy and SUPER cute, but to be honest, they were a little heavy for my taste and y’all know how much I LOVE my lightweight Nickel and Suede earrings… so I just KNEW that I wasn’t going to wear these.

So, as cute as they were, I decided to return them.

Renee C “Cloey Keyhole Top” – Size XL – $48

I actually really liked this top, but fit was definitely an issue with it. The picture doesn’t do it justice, but the print is gorgeous and the fabric is so soft and flowy. BUT, the arm holes were MASSIVE and so my bra showed on the sides and because of the halter-top style of the top of the blouse, it would be very difficult to find a way to cover the bra. I mean, I COULD have had it altered, but I think that just isn’t worth it, to be honest.

So, as much as I liked it, the fit made this top a no-go and I decided to return it.

I will say, I think the price point is a definite yes.

Loveappella “Lyndrel Knit Top” – Size XL – $48

Stitch Fix - Loveappella "Lyndrel Knit Top" #stitchfix @stitchfix

This top was just… okay. It was SUPER soft… like BUTTER soft… so that was a plus. It has a hi-low hem (it’s lower in the back than in the front), and I do love a good striped shirt. But I just didn’t LOVE this one in particular and I thought the price point was WAY WAY WAY too high for a basic striped tee like this. I probably would have kept it had the price point been lower… but $48 for a striped tee? Nah.

Thus, I returned this one.

Mavi “Huntter Cutoff Paint Splattered Short” – Size 14 – $88

 

Stitch Fix - Mavi "Huntter Cutoff Paint Splattered Short" #stitchfix @stitchfixYou know I love you guys if I’m showing you the picture of these shorts.

I specifically requested denim shorts in my fix this month and I love distressed denim and Kimberly knows I like to try different stuff… but these were definitely a NO.

Now, because I like to keep it positive, I will say that they are INSANELY comfortable… Mavi jeans in general are like butter and very soft and stretchy… so that wasn’t an issue.

But the actual CUT was just awful on me. I don’t like shorts that “hug” my thighs, if that makes sense. I like shorts that fit a little baggy around the thigh.

Also, $88 for these was definitely way too high in my opinion. I mean, I know Mavi is a luxury jean, but that price is off for these.

So, I returned them.

There you have it… my May Stitch Fix fix review.

I only kept one item, but that doesn’t mean I don’t still LOVE my stylist and Stitch Fix!

Now what do you think? Do you agree with the item I kept? Any items you loved? Have you tried Stitch Fix yet?
