August Stitch Fix

Another month, another box! My August Stitch Fix box is here! This is my 17th fix! I can't believe I've received 17 of these in the mail! This month around I asked my stylist to send me a few specific items. I wanted to see a jean jacket, some printed palazzo pants, a kimono and some ankle booties.  I've now learned to be very specific in my stylist notes! My stylist let me know on the note that only one of my requested items would be in the box. Stitch Fix is constantly shuffling their items and they just didn't have the other items available right now. Before I show you my fix here's a little information on how it works....



Start by filling out your style profile. You will complete questions on sizing, pricing, preferences, colors, etc. You can also write notes about likes and dislikes. Make sure to link your fashion board on Pinterest so your stylist can see what you like. This really helps! The notes to your stylist can really help determine what you get in your box. Take the time to write your stylist a note! I feel that's one of the most important things to getting the items you really want to see in your fixes.


Next, order your first fix! You will be charged a $20.00 styling fee however, if you keep any item [one or more] you will be credited back the $20.00 towards that purchase. I always recommend keeping at least one item or you are essentially giving away $20.00 and getting nothing in return. You will receive 5 items (made up of clothing, jewelry, and handbags). I personally never want jewelry in my fix so I just always let my stylist know! If you refer a friend you get credit so your styling fee could potentially be free.

When your box arrives decide what you want to keep and what you want to send back (in the pre-paid postage envelope)! You have 3 business days  from receiving your fix to decide so use this time to try everything on and see what works best for you. Go out of your comfort zone! This is what makes Stitch Fix fun! It's like being a celebrity and getting clothing sent to you! I've chosen to receive monthly fixes but remember it is in no way a subscription service and you are able to decide when you want another fix, whether that be in 6 months or 2 years from your first fix! As always, if you have any questions feel free to leave them in the comments section below. To save some cash on future fixes they offer an awesome referral package, if you use my referral link I'll get to bypass the styling fee at least once!
 
Let's get started! Remember - If you see anything that you like below, feel free to pin it and/or ask your stylist in the notes section of your next fix for something similar! 

1. Fun2Fun. Molina Split Neck Top. Small.
 
I didn't like this top at all when I first took it out of the box but once I put it on, I really liked it. The sleeve's are 3/4 length and the design has a very vintage boho feel.
2. Market & Spruce. Careen V-Neck Dolman Knit Top. Small.

This top is so soft. It's a little big but I like that. If I put on any winter weight it won't show! I also like the color and design.
 
3. Pixley. Lagio Mixed Material Top. Small.
 

This top is definitely something not in my comfort zone. The lace detail I really like but I would never pick this pattern up in the store and think, "oh that would look great on me!" I love that the back is all black and when you turn to the front you get the design. I don't know if this is a keeper or not? I'm not too keen on the cap sleeves their shorter than a normal short sleeve.
4. Brixon Ivy. Barrington Tie Neck Blouse. Small.

I really like this shirt but I don't like how open the neck is. It's a little big in the chest but the arms were just right. The tie neck is a nice feature on this shirt. I have a shirt very similar so I don't know if I will keep this. It's also very white and I'm afraid I would stain it or get makeup on it and not be able to remove it.
5. Gilli. Chandler Printed Wide Leg Pant. Medium.
 
I love love love these pants! They literally feel like butter on your skin. As soon as I saw them in my box, I was like SOLD! The pattern it dynamic but I think I can always wear these in the winter so I can transition them from summer to fall. It also has a vintage vibe and I love it.
So what would you keep? What would you send back?
