Stitch Fix #39 Review

I’ve still been receiving fixes every month only you haven’t seen the last 15 because I’ve been in a funk.

I blame Trump. I mean, who can think about reviewing clothes when everything is going to shit?

But then the two friends that actually read these reviews said they missed them and I figured maybe a small thing I can do is distract them with clothing for a few minutes until more terrible things happen or until 45 and his team get nailed by Mueller, preferably the latter. And so, another Stitch Fix Review is born.

If you’ve heard of Stitch Fix, skip this paragraph! Never heard of Stitch Fix? Briefly, Stitch Fix is a styling subscription service in which you fill out a profile (sizes, styles, and price point) and receive a customized fix of 5 items (clothes/accessories) delivered right to your doorstep. There is a $20 styling fee but it’s credited towards anything you keep. Keeping all 5 items gives you a 25% discount, which is awesome when it happens. You dictate the frequency of your fixes. If you’d like to try it, I have a referral link here and also at the end of this post and if you sign up through my link I get a small commission at no cost to you. Yay! And now for my review of my 39th Stitch Fix box!

This month’s fix was styled by Austyn, who has been my stylist for a few months now. She always tries really hard and writes nice notes.

Here is what Austyn sent:

  1. Lila Ryan Liza Distressed Skinny Jean, 2, white, $98 ($74 with discount)
  2. Daniel Rainn Katarena Lace Detail Knit Top, XS, black, $58 ($44)
  3. 41Hawthorn Abberly Cut Out Detail Knit Top, XS, navy, $44 ($33)
  4. Honey Punch Seaside Mix Material Top, XS, black, $38 ($29)
  5. Lemon Tart Shania Knit Maxi Dress, XS, $98 ($74)

I liked the colors and patterns in this fix, but I am getting super-picky and hard to please, mostly because I don’t really need anything so I have to love anything I might keep. This makes Austyn’s job really difficult.

First I tried on the Katarena Lace Detail Knit Top with the Liza Distressed Skinny Jeans.

Aren’t my flowers pretty?


I loved the pattern of this top right out of the box. It’s got a cute meshy area up top and also in the back.

I’m not sure I love the sleeves though. I think this would be cuter sleeveless. I like this outfit but I’m not sure it’s worth the price. I have two pairs of white jeans already, boyfriend and flares. Do I really need white skinny distressed jeans when I spend most of my time in sweatpants or athletic shorts? Probably not.

Next up: same jeans, Abberly Cut Out Detail Knit Top.

This top was ok and the coral detailing is fun. But I just don’t see myself wearing this. The sleeve length is weird to me (here I go again with the sleeves). I’d tend to wear sleeveless or 3/4 before I’d do this just above the elbow thing.

Same jeans, Seaside Mix Material Top

This is pretty short for my long torso! And also not so interesting from the front.

I like the pattern in the back but the front is a deal-breaker. It’s got that high-low thing going on, which I don’t mind unless the front is too short!

The last thing I tried on was the Shania Knit Maxi Dress.

This dress was super-similar to a dress I returned in the last fix I blogged about here.

This fits well on top, but it’s so so long. I’m 5’5.” Not petite by definition but I tend to need petite maxis, and Austyn sent a petite one last time that I kept (and didn’t’ blog about) so I’m not sure what happened this time.

The other thing about this dress is that the fabric is really heavy. That is not exactly what I like for summer.

I am leaning towards not keeping anything this time. What do you think?

If you’d like to give Stitch Fix a try and don’t mind using this link, I’ll get a $25 referral credit towards my next fix once yours ships. And that would be awesome.

(I have no affiliation with Stitch Fix other than a referral code. I buy these clothes myself and all opinions are mine).

    I mean, you can have the maxi hemmed if it’s not too spendy. The color and cut are great on you. I have a Banana Republic maxi in that same cut that I thought would be too heavy a fabric and it turns out to be one of my summer faves now. Other than that lukewarm thought, this box sounds like a total miss. blah.

      Good to know about the fabric. Maybe I’m over-reacting to that.

    I vote for the Abberley Knit top and the distressed white jeans. The Top is pretty unique, has enough edge with the coral detail, and the sleeves are the new more popular length. They go into fall very well. The jeans just plain look great on you, and by your admission, you don’t have white skinny jeans.

      Thank you. I need to decide soon. I am past my date already (shhhh).

    Ok. I agree with all of your comments, especially regarding the sleeves. I love the dress, but definitely would not keep if it is heavy material (defeats purpose of summer in MA. (Maybe in norcal it would work.) Love reading the reviews! Cindy

      Thanks Cindy!

    Too bad the seaside top doesn’t have the same fabric front and back. LOVE the back, but agree the front is just meh, and that’s what people will see until you leave!
