I've gotta be honest, I was a little disappointed with Stitch Fix this month. Normally, they send me a reminder email a couple weeks before my box is going to be styled. This enables me to have time to write a note to my stylist about specific things I'd like in my box. I only get a box every other month, and I don't like to write the note too early, because I'm not always sure what I'll be looking for. Anyway, this time, the first email that I got from Stitch Fix, was letting me know that my box had shipped. Say what?! Eeeekkk!! I had plans to ask them for summery clothes, including a new pair of shorts, a sun dress and NO more skinny jeans!
Stitch Fix has incredible customer service, though. When I emailed them, they were quick to apologize, stating that it appeared an email had been sent, but they adjusted some sort of filters so people had recently complained of the emails going to junk mail. When I went to check my junk mail, it had already been dumped the week that it would have been sent, so it's impossible for me to know. Regardless, they offered to have me send the box back and get an entirely new box, at no cost. Yes, amazing service. However, when my box arrived, I was pleasantly surprised at how much I liked. Chirstina has styled my last few boxes and does a great job! She's commented on the helpfulness of my Pinterest boards, so I'm guessing that's how she nailed several of the pieces. I'm not 100% decided on everything, so I'd love your input.
#1 Nawny Tiered Back Knit Top
My first impression....I loved it! In fact, I loved it so much, I decided to keep it right away! I've already worn it and feel like it's the perfect transition top, from cool to warm weather. The material is really light, but it's 3/4 sleeved, so it keeps me warm, especially in my chilly classroom. My favorite part is the ruffle along the bottom and the absolutely fabulous back! Sorry for the poor quality picture. I really should have waited for my hubby to get home, to snap pics (especially of the back). I took a picture of it, straight out of the box, so it's wrinkly looking, but once I ironed it, the ruffles laid nicely.
#2 Topanga Crochet Detail Flutter Sleeve Blouse
Another win, straight out of the box. It's exactly what I was looking for, to wear this summer. It's lightweight, flow-y and neutral. I can wear with jeans, shorts, or a maxi skirt. I paired it with a cute cardigan when I wore it the other day, but I think it's cute, alone, too.
#3 Robyn Textured Pencil Skirt
When I first pulled this out of the box, I loved the print and the texture of the skirt. However, I have to be able to teach fitness classes at school, so it's a rare occasion when I'd have use for something this dressy. I love the elastic waist band, and it's a great length...hitting just above the knee. And if I wore skirts, this would be a great one to keep. I couldn't justify the cost, however.
#4 Aiden Skinny Jean
This is where I need your help! I love the fit of these jeans, and they are a really pretty mint color, but I have a darker teal pair, and can't decide if I need/want both. These are more in style (less "mom" cut), and the length is perfect for sandals or flats. Ugh. They aren't cheap, so it's definitely an investment....but one I'm willing to make for a well fitting, great pair of jeans.
#5 Omar Crochet Bib Top
I'm the most torn on this item. Because I took it straight out of the box, it's still really wrinkly. Sorry! I didn't want to iron if I was going to return in. It has really pretty crochet detailing along the neckline and it's a racer back style (with a zipper), up the upper back. I think it's a good length, and it seems to be a good material. Just can't decide how much use I'd get out of it. The detailing on the neckline is very low cut, so I couldn't wear it to work, unless I wore a tank underneath (which might look funny). What do you think??
Alright, I need your opinions!! #1 and #2 are the only ones that I've decided to keep for sure. What are your thoughts on the others? If you've never tried Stitch Fix before, you've got to give it a shot! For a $20 styling fee, they send you 5 items in each box. If you keep any item, the $20 fee is applied towards the cost, making the service absolutely free. You never pay shipping on delivery or returns and I've never worked with a company with better customer service. What have you got to lose? Click HERE to try it out!!
