Another Stitch Fix arrived and it was a ray of figurative sunshine during four straight days of rain here. I requested the stylist I’ve had for a while now, Carlee, because I adore her. And this time, I left my fix in her capable hands; I didn’t make any specific requests.
It was even more exciting to open the box without any possible idea of what was inside.
And there were some fun items in store, or rather, in box. That said, I’m having a really tough time deciding what should stay and what should be returned. Please share your opinions. And also, kindly forgive some of the photos. We tried to dodge the aforementioned rain drops for them, but it just got too heavy so we moved inside where the lighting is iffy at best.
Danette Skirt by Le Lis
I used to wear skirts all the time but haven’t as much lately, so I was excited to see this one in the box. The fabric was an interesting texture. I feel like the skirt I got curved down in the front more than the one in the image that was cut straight across, which I like better, but it’s not a huge issue.
Please forgive the lack of styling here. Skirts like this make me wish I was so very short waisted.
VERDICT: Returned. I thought that this was really cute, but there was a snag in it, and I worried that more would follow. I’m going to keep an eye out for another navy skirt or see what Carlee can find for my next fix.
Have Cold Shoulder Knit Top by Le Lis
I did wonder about the yellow, but I think I like it. I loved that the detailing carried over to the back, and that a normal bra works nicely with it.
VERDICT: Kept. I’m a fan!
Sheila Knit Dress by Le Lis
I wonder, though, if the polyester with a bit of spandex will be all that breathable. I think I’d like it more if the top was less blousy (is that a word?)
VERDICT: Returned. While I really liked it, there were issues on the hem where stitching didn’t match up, and it wasn’t quite even. The width of the navy stripe at the bottom varied from one side to the other. Those imperfections aren’t okay at this price point.

Also, I had to include the full length photo with the shoes from this fix last year. I thought they were cute with this shirt, though again, they weren’t quite as cute together in the pictures as I thought they were in person.
VERDICT: Kept. My husband and daughter both voted yes and I opted to go with them.
Abrienne Split Neck Cap Sleeve Knit Top by Daniel Rainn
VERDICT: Returned. I liked this a lot, but it was pretty shapeless and a little pricey. I liked the other two shirts better.

So, that’s my fix. What do you think? What should stay and what should be returned to hopefully find a perfect home with someone else?
If you’re new to Stitch Fix?
If you’re unfamiliar with Stitch Fix, it’s a clothing subscription service that sends you a box of 5 items that a stylist selects for you based on a few things, including a questionnaire that includes questions about your style, size, and budget preferences, what you want and what you don’t want, as well as your Pinterest board and requests you make with each fix. (Find tips on getting your best Fix here.)
The stylists selects five items (tops, bottoms, dresses, accessories, coats, shoes etc.) and mail them to your door, so you can try them on at home and see how they work with pieces you already have in your closet. You have three days to try them before sending back any you don’t wish to keep in the enclosed, prepaid mailer.
There is a $20 styling fee that is applied to your order, and that is charged whether you keep any items or not. If you keep all five items, you get a 25% discount on everything. You are only charged once you “check out” at Stitch Fix.
