A Stitch Fix Review...

This month's Stitch Fix was full of several almosts: things I liked in theory but that didn't quite work when I put them on. So spoiler alert: I sent it all back.

Loveapella Abella Maxi Dress ($78)

I wanted to love this dress, but I couldn't. I think maxi dresses really have to be a certain material/cut for them to work on my body type. I liked this print, but when I put it on, I just wasn't in love.

I probably should have put these on for you guys so you could see how they fit. But I clearly didn't. 

They're boyfriend jeans, and they fit just fine. I also liked the dark color and the distressed detail. But the bottoms flared out in a strange way and just made the jeans look odd on me.

Skies Are Blue Alexa Embroidery Detailed Tank ($48)

I wanted to love this shirt because it's totally my style. But the top sits across my chest in a weird way, and it isn't long enough for my taste.

I can see myself having liked this for work... if I had been able to try it on. The Stitch Fix tag said "XL," but the actual dress was a medium. I was super bummed that I couldn't test it out, and apparently they don't have any more, but Stitch Fix's customer service was incredible, and they refunded my $20 styling fee.

41Hawthorn Carla Crochet Detail Blouse ($58)

The color and style of this top were perfect. And it fit just fine. But again... it was just too short for my taste.

This is the first time I haven't found something I loved in my Fix. And since I haven't kept as much from my last few Fixes as I had been keeping previously, I went back through my style profile and created a Stitch Fix-specific Pinterest board. I'm hoping my stylist will take a peek at my board and get a better idea what I'm looking for each month.

Have you guys tried Stitch Fix yet? Are you loving it?

Ugh I hate that they mislabeled a dress! That would bum me out. Hopefully your next box will have more stuff that you like.

That color block dress was cute, I would have been bummed!
