July Stitch Fix Review & Link Up

July 13, 2015·

Is it me or have the months gone by EXTREMELY fast this summer? I can’t believe we are almost halfway through JULY. What in the WHAT?! Crazy!

Anyway, I received my July Stitch Fix fix last week and it was another GREAT one! My stylist, Kimberly J., is really taking my feedback and also pushing me outside of my comfort zone and getting me to try new styles. Which I LOVE. Not everything is a hit, BUT, what it’s doing is telling me even more what I like, what I don’t like, the kinds of styles that flatter me, the kind of cuts and fits work for me, etc.

This month, I requested some basic layering pieces (I have been on the hunt for some good mix-and-match basics), and also some light and flowy pieces. Check out what I got this month, see what I thought, and ultimately, what I kept! 🙂

Papermoon “Remmie Geo Print Maxi Skirt” – Size XL – $58

Stitch Fix Papermoon "Remmie Geo Print Maxi Skirt" @stitchfix

I really liked this maxi skirt a lot. It’s a gorgeous print (photo doesn’t do the color justice), and it’s very lightweight and stretchy and flowy. I had it hiked up VERY high on my waist because it was really long. And, sadly, while I really did like the skirt, I didn’t LOVE it enough to warrant keeping it. I am being conscious with my spending right now and only purchasing things I know I could love and wear many different ways. While the skirt is gorgeous, it just didn’t fit into that category.

Verdict: Return

Loveappella “Denison Fringe Trim Knit Tank” – Size XL – $54
Stitch Fix Loveappella "Denison Fringe Trim Knit Tank" @stitchfix

I was not crazy about this tank out of the box… the material is SUPER soft, and I do love the fringe detailing, but the tie-dye print just didn’t feel like me. When I put it on, I felt like I was SWIMMING in it. I don’t know if it was just meant to fit like that, or what… but it was just huge. Looking at the pictures, it doesn’t look AS huge as it felt on… but still huge nonetheless.

I loved what my stylist was trying to get me to try… but in the end, this top was just a no go.

Mavi “Ruxin Distressed Paint Splattered Boyfriend Jean” – Size 14 – $98

I. Love. These. Jeans. Yes, they’re $98. Yes, they’re $98 for a pair of jeans that’s already been distressed and paint splattered. And I don’t. even. care. They’re SO soft (I have another pair of Mavi jeans from a previous fix that I ADORE – Mavi jeans really do feel like butter). I’ve been wanting to add more distressed denim in my wardrobe. I love boyfriend jeans.

They are long, but that’s nothing a pair of scissors can’t fix. 🙂 Plus, I’ll wear them cuffed. I’ve already worn them almost every day since I got them. These jeans are really amazing. I know I’ll be wearing them a ton!

Verdict: Keep!

Pixley “Vyner Fringe Top”  – Size XL – $64

Stitch Fix Pixley "Vyner Fringe Top" @stitchfix

I wanted so badly to love this top. I loved it out of the box. Excuse the wrinkles… no time to iron or steam. I really loved it, but when I put it on, something just didn’t feel right. It just didn’t completely feel like me. I can’t put my finger on why or what it was… but it just wasn’t me.

So, back it went.

Verdict: Return

Market & Spruce “Sam Hi-Lo Short Sleeve Tee” – Size XL – $44

Stitch Fix Market & Spruce "Sam Hi-Lo Short Sleeve Tee" @stitchfix

Okay. Okay. Okay. $44 for a gray t-shirt. I know. BUT. You guys. This shirt, is like… heaven in a t-shirt. It’s a VERY lightweight and stretchy material that is impossible to describe. It’s almost got threads that feel like sweatshirt or sweater material… BUT, it’s very thin and breathable.  See? I told you it was impossible to describe. I’ve NEVER felt a top like it.

The moment I put this top on, I was like YES! THIS! ALL OF THIS! It’s just the ideal layering piece. Versatile. Will go with anything. I love the hi-lo detail. I love how stretchy and lightweight it is. It’s just phenomenal.

I have also worn this shirt A LOT since I got it and I am so. glad. I kept it!

Verdict: Keep!Stitch Fix Market & Spruce "Sam Hi-Lo Short Sleeve Tee" @stitchfix

So there you have it! I kept 2 of 5 items this month, but I really did love a few more of them… the 2 I kept were just the ones I felt I would wear the most. I am SO loving my Stitch Fix still! It’s like Christmas every month when that box shows up on my doorstep. CHRISTMAS IN JULY!
