(Stitch Fix) Review Number Two!

I have a confession to make:  I have had this Stitch Fix review written in my head (and these photos taken!) for a few weeks now, but my life got crazy and I've had to pause the blog for a little bit.

So, I actually received these on April 10th, but the clothing is all still seasonal, so I'm going to do a review anyway!

If you're not sure what Stitch Fix is, feel free to check out the first few paragraphs of my first review.

Otherwise, let's get down to business!

(By the way, if your brain just read that last sentence and then immediately followed it with "to defeat the Huns" then we are destined to be friends.  I'm Grady - Nice to meet ya!)

The glorious box (and some mad photoshop skillz on my part)!

Looks promising!

  • DownEast Tobi Cropped Lurex Cardigan, $58.00

Okay, let me be real with you all for a minute here.  I'm not a SUPER curvy girl, but I'm curvy enough that a cropped fit is just not gonna work for me.  The fabric and colors were cute, but I knew when I read the word "cropped" that this was going to look hilarious when I tried to button it.  And low and behold...
Verdict?:  Sent Back.

  • 41Hawthorn Floral Crinkle Scarf, $28.00

The second that I saw that I got a scarf, well, I'll be honest - I was disappointed.  It was a lovely scarf, but unless I'm trying to keep snow from going down my parka, I just have no interest in scarves.
I thought that I had stated in my Style Profile that I didn't want any scarves sent to me, so I was a little peeved at first.  Then I went and checked it... Somehow I was in a dream world when I filled it out, because sure enough "Scarves" was checked off as an option for things I might want to receive.  Whoops.
I changed it right away for next time, of course, but in the meantime...
Verdict?: Sent Back

  • Jack by BB Dakota Evian Striped Skater Dress, $65.00

Okay, so I was really excited about this when I saw it in the box, but the jersey material was SUPER clingy.  Like...Wowzer.  The fabric felt soft, but I did not feel comfortable in this.

Verdict?:  Sent Back

  • Peppermint Spence Peter Pan Collar Hi-Lo Dress, $48.00

I LOVE LOVE LOVE the color of (and collar on) this dress!  However, I wasn't 100% sold on the Hi-Low look.

But, after seeing the photos and walking around the apartment wearing this dress (it's so incredibly comfortable and the fabric is awesome!) I decided that I was going to go for it!  Also, the price tag was great (only $28.00 after applying my $20.00 styling fee)
Verdict?:  Kept!

  • Black Sheep Mily Floral Pleated Tie-Waist Dress, $88.00

I was BEYOND excited about receiving this beautiful dress!  I had seen it on the Stitch Fix Instgram and I was obsessed with the pattern!  What I didn't know, however, was that it is actually two pieces - an underdress/slip type thing, and the sheer floral dress with tie over it.  The problem with that?  Every time I walked the slip underneath would ride up like CRAZY.  Way way way too high to be appropriate to wear in public.

I almost didn't post this photo because it's SO SHORT, but I wanted you to get what I'm talking about!  So not okay, and I'm not going to pay $88.00 for something I either can't wear or that I need to purchase something else to wear underneath in order to go out in public.  No, thank you.
Verdict?: Sent Back.

Overall I would say that my second fix was pretty good, but I wasn't as impressed as I had hoped to be, especially since they had some information about my tastes from my reviews of my first fix.  HOWEVER, I was still happy to find something that I loved (and I've worn the dress a few times since, always receiving compliments, so that's a plus!).

I have another box coming in a few days, and I'm excited to see how that will work out, but I also don't know that I will keep doing this with any kind of regularity if it doesn't start to feel a little bit more personalized.  But, I mean, I'm a reasonable lady so I can expect it to take awhile before I start to LOVE everything in every Stitch Fix box.

So that's where I'm at right now!  And, just to be 100% clear, I am not affiliated with or in any way paid/sponsored/supported by Stitch Fix, I just think it's a really fun company and I enjoy reviewing my Fixes!  However - full disclosure, as always - if you use the links in this post rather than Googling to find the website, I will earn credit towards future Fixes.  

Thanks for reading!


  1. i love the purple dress! i'm glad you picked it--i got nervous there for a second.

    1. Yay! I'm glad you like it, too! I really was worried that I'd never wear it because of the Hi-Lo aspect, but I actually love it, turns out! (Miss you, by the way!)

  2. I found your blog through google via "stitch fix review" since I am waiting for my stitch.
    a) Cropped cardis are not suposed to be buttoned and are suposed to be fitted
    b) You are not super curvy, you are not slightly curvy... You do NOT have one curve.
    c) Jersey material is known to be clingy and show every bump, however you do not have a bump.
    d) Advice from a fellow red head: please take the braids and pigtails out. You're a big girl. Also, mascara and normal face expressions go a long way. Your outfits would look 10 times better had you actually perfected your hair and face. Not that sitting at home blogging means you have to look beautiful 24/7 but you're posting pics of yourself for public view. You have so much potential.
    e) scarves are an everyday accesory if done right.
    f) your review would be way more helpful had you taken normal poses rather than awkward positions where you cannot tell the fit of the clothing.

    Pigtails weren't even cool when we were 5.

    1. First of all, I do appreciate you checking out my blog, regardless of what you have to say.

      However, I will still respond to your comments (although I also feel like I shouldn't, since you are just an anonymous rando on the internet, really)...

      a) True. I just don't like them because I like to button my cardigans.
      b) ...Okay?
      c) The clinginess is not a "looking good" problem, it's a comfort level problem. I just don't like tight/clingy clothing.
      d) I will probably wear my hair in pigtails until I'm 90 and I'm 100% okay with that. I also understand that it drives some people crazy and they think it's ridiculous, but this is one of those times where I say "to each his own" and move on. And you're totally correct that I could look a lot nicer with make-up and done up hair, but that's really not me and I wanted this post to be, if nothing else, realistic to me and my lifestyle.
      e) I have no desire to perfect the art of scarves. People can and do make them look AWESOME, I'm just not one of those people.
      f) This actually is a good point and one I will try to remember. Although, I'm not sure I can take the "awkward" part away, haha.

      Your closing point, however, is just you intentionally being a butthead and therefore I'm choosing to ignore it. :-P

      Have a good day!

  3. I was looking at stitch fix reviews and landed here.
    I don't wear scarves either. Another thing, I have a daughter your age, which means I'm twice your age and sometimes I wear my hair in a braid.
    Sometimes people forget that kindness counts and grace looks good on everyone.

    1. Thank you for this! :)

      Yes, absolutely. I had trouble responding honestly and with kindness (especially because I'm new to blogging and the bluntness of that comment surprised me!) but I think I did alright.

      Thank you again for reading and then taking the time to comment - I really do appreciate it.

      I checked out your faith blog as well - really powerful stuff on there. I really felt like I was supposed to read it. Thank you for sharing yourself there! <3
