June 2014 Stitch Fix Review

I'm going on a cruise in a few days and was so hoping for some tops I could bring with me.  Luckily, my Stitch Fix stylist, Michelle had me covered!

I've been blogging about my Stitch Fix boxes for the past four months now, and I am always so excited for it to arrive.  If you haven't read my other posts and don't know what this is, Stitch Fix which is a personal styling service.  They have an online portal where you tell them your style, size, and budget, and one of their stylists puts together a box of 5 items that are specially picked for you!  They charge you a $20 styling fee which is refunded to you in the form of a product discount if you make a purchase.  You can also get a 25% discount if you buy all 5 items.  If you happen to dislike anything, or the fit is wrong, send it back within 3 days in a free prepaid envelope and you will not be charged for it. 

You'll see the box that all my clothes arrived in.  I actually saw FedEx right out from my bedroom window, grabbed my camera, and snapped a picture of it right by the front door.  I couldn't wait!





Opening the box is always so much fun!  I love seeing my style cards with ideas of how to wear the items.  I also enjoy reading the letter from my stylist.




Some of the colors I received in the past were a bit dull.  I requested some fun patterns and colors for this month, and Michelle definitely delivered!



DARYN SOLID JERSEY KNIT TOP


 I love the simplicity of this top, and especially the bright color.  I really like how it is more fitted on the top and is loose fitting throughout my hips.  The scoop neck in the back offers a bit of a surprise.  I was actually thinking the shoulders would slip off, but I think that because this has one of those built in bras, it actually stays in place quite nicely.  I paired it with a longer necklace to jazz it up a bit.


TRISTAN FLORAL PRINT BUTTON FRONT BLOUSE


Floral patterns are kind of my thing.  These colors are beautiful and the fit of the top is pretty flattering on me.  This is a definite keeper and going with me on my cruise!



BRIGHTON ABSTRACT PRINT OPEN-BACK TANK


Ok, I'm not going to lie.  I probably spent a good 10 minutes trying to figure out how to get this bad boy on.  The back draping is a bit tricky to get right.  Once I finally got it correct, I loved how unique it was.  From the front it looks like a typical tank, but the back definitely offers a surprise.  I feel like I'll have to wear my hair up to show it off!  I'm also pretty lucky that I had a racerback bra, because it is 100% needed.



POLLY MINI CHEVRON PRINT TIE-WAIST TUNIC


 I'm not going to lie.  I tried this on with the tie around the waist.  I put it on with the bow in the front and back.  Hated it because it falls on a bad place on my hips.  I was really hoping to like it because the pattern and color is so cute.  My mom actually suggested just taking the belt off and wearing it with leggings and a longer necklace.  I think it made all the difference.  It's so comfortable and something I can just throw on while still looking put together.


BRYAN SHORT-SLEEVE OPEN-FRONT CARDIGAN


I am a bit obsessed with cardigans, so I'm happy to receive one in a color I don't have.  It actually  matches a chevron print blouse I have perfectly, and I don't wear the blouse too often because it's kind of too poofy....that's the best I can describe it.  This cardigan hides the poofiness and makes me like that shirt so much better.

 Overall, again, I decided to keep everything and save the 25%.  I'm a sucker for a good deal!

  2. Courtney,
    The whole box retailed fora little over $200. Because I bought everything, I saved 25% and then I had $75 credits from people signing up with my referral link (at the beginning of this post). It doesn't end up being too bad with all those discounts factored in! :)

  4. I love all the colors and patterns they sent you. I just received my first fix yesterday and am in the process of deciding what to keep. I found your review through the Stitch Fix website. How did you link up to that? I am thinking of creating a review too on my blog and I'm not sure how to get it to show up on their website.
