Stitch Fix Review - July 2014

Monday, July 21, 2014

It's the middle of summer which means its time for short skirts and fun maxi dresses and Stitch Fix is great at delivering both of these. Stitch Fix is the answer for the girl who is in desperate need of a wardrobe update, but has literally no time to shop. You can get fixes every 2-3 weeks, monthly or for any specific date you choose. I've been getting fixes every 2-3 weeks because I seem to be in dire need of new pieces for my wardrobe. For more into about the logistics of Stitch Fix, check out one of my earlier posts on it! This fix was full of bright pieces to welcome the halfway point of Summer. My stylist for this month, Emily, sent along this cute little note to explain her picks and how to style them!
The first piece that I knew I had to try on was the Angie Tenessy Chevron Print Maxi Dress. It was a beautiful green and white chevron print and the fabric was incredibly comfortable. I loved the thicker straps on the dress that allowed me to wear it with a normal bra and the higher neckline that made it look modest, but fashionable without showing lots of cleavage. I paired the dress with the Street Level Bonnie Striped Straw Clutch, which I immediately knew I'd like as soon as I saw it. It looks like an awesome day or night out essential, especially suited for the summer season. As cute as the pieces looked, I had to take a pass on both. Asking myself how often I'd wear the maxi dress, I couldn't find many situations where I would prefer it over a shorter version of a similar dress. I couldn't imagine constantly having to hold my dress up so I wouldn't step on it during an event. However,  since trying this item on and loving it, I would consider buying a maxi dress in future as it was just so cute! I also passed on the clutch. My reasoning was the zipper and the fact that it got stuck several times while I was showing the item off to one of my friends. A sticky zipper is a non-negotiable with me as I don't always have the patience to keep trying to open/close my purse until it works.

The second item that I tried on was the 41Hawthorn Ruffle Front Tank. It was a really beautiful pink/orange color and was made of a really comfortable material. I also liked that it was sleeveless, so it would be perfect for hot summer days. I paired it with a long white skirt from Anthropologie and thought it was a great bright color match for the summer season. The only part of the top that i didn't enjoy was the actual ruffle. I felt that it called too much attention to my chest and made it stand out even more. I think it would look awesome on a girl with a smaller chest, but on me, I felt it just didn't work. I had to take a pass.

One of the last pieces that I tried on was the Loveappella Kaci Abstract Chevron Swing Skirt. It was the perfect height for a summer skirt and did that awesome twirl out when you spin around. It had a tight band at the top and flares out from there in little pleats. I paired it with the Amour Vert Racquel Solid Silk Blouse. The blouse felt amazing on and was such a great color for me that I was very sad to pass on it, but it was more of a tank top than a blouse and for $78, I couldn't justify the expenditure. The one thing I couldn't pass up though was the skirt. For $58, the price was well worth it, especially since I can't say that I have a skirt similar in pattern. It will be great to pair with any solid color blouse and perfect to wear for work with a solid color top and a blazer.

Although I was bummed that I still didn't find that perfect summer fit and flare dress I was looking for, I did find some great pieces that I would not have selected for myself. I have fixes coming every 2-3 weeks now so I'm sure there will be more awesome dresses in my Stitch Fix future. What was your favorite piece from this fix? Let me know in the comments below!
