Stitch Fix Review July 2015 and Giveaway!Monday, July 06, 2015
You guys.....I am so excited to share this month's Stitch Fix with you (and to tell you about our first Giveaway)!!! There were lots of "Oooooh's" and "Ahhhhh's" when I was opening the package. My stylist is amazing! She sent some really great stuff.
Let me back up for a second in case some of you haven't heard about Stitch Fix. It's a personal styling service for clothes. You fill out a detailed questionnaire to let them know about your style and then each month (if you want) a package comes to your door with 5 items. You get 3 days to try on the clothes and decide what you like. You pay a $20 "styling fee" which covers shipping both ways, and the money for the stylist to choose your clothes. If you like anything that $20 gets taken off your order! Pretty cool. If you want to keep all 5 pieces, you get an extra 25% off your total! You can't beat that! If you want to send something back, you just pop it in the postage paid envelope that they provide you and put it in your mailbox. Easy Peasy. You can check out Stitch Fix here.
Ok, back to my awesome July Fix. I had asked for some casual tops/dresses and maybe a bag that could work as a beach bag. Well don't you just know my wonderful stylist (Hi Kristy!) found all of that? A couple months back she even sent me this dress that I loved (here) and on the feedback form, I mentioned I would buy it in every color....seriously. lol. Last month she mentioned they didn't have any in my size, but she remembered and sent me one this month!!! Giveaway- I am giving away a $20 Stitch Fix gift card to one lucky reader! That's $20 off your next favorite item or a risk free fix since it will cover the styling fee! You can enter at the bottom of this post!
When I got my shipping notice, I looked ahead of time to see what I might be getting (i know...bad!) and I could not for the life of me find this tank! So when I pulled it out of the box, it was really a surprise. I think the first thing I said was "Ooooooo". It's a pretty mint green lace overlay with a grey tank under it. The tank itself is like a soft thick t-shirt material, with the lace overlay sewn on top at the neck and shoulders. I love the colors and the lace. Perfect shirt and I'm pretty sure I'm going to live in it.

Skies are Blue Henlow Knit Halter Top $38
This tank is great. It has an interesting pattern, great colors and a cute cut out in the back. The only thing is, I don't usually do halter tops. I'm small chested so strapless bras don't work well on me. I know they make halter ones, but I don't have one. This tank is growing on me though, as I look at the pictures, I really do like how it looks. What's nice is that it's looser fitting while still being able to show off your figure. If halter tops are your thing, I bet you'll love this one!
Status: Kept for discount
Gilli Kamile Jersey Ruched Detail Dress $54
This was the dress that I was sent a couple months back in black, that I loved and wanted another in a different color. Look at this gorgeous green! Green is my favorite color and I still think this dress is amazing! I will also get a ton of use out of this piece. It's so comfortable while being fitted up top and skimming the rest of the body so it could easily conceal any trouble areas. She also mentioned that this dress would be great for the cruise that I am going on next month. I agree! This dress will look great in the Bahamas! lol.
Street Level Erik Striped Tote Bag $48
This is the bag that my stylist sent that she thought would be a great beach bag. How do they do it? This is exactly what I pictured when I requested something that could work as a beach bag. Down to the navy blue and off white stripes. Perfect for the beach to throw towels, sunscreen, cover up, phone, and other essentials. It's a canvas bag too so sand should clean up easily from it! Nailed it!
C.Luce Izzy Striped Dress $68
You guys, this dress! I feel like Jackie Kennedy in it! I took so many pictures of it because I want you to see it from every side, it's that good! It seems a little more dressy to me than casual, but I think it's just because I usually live in jeans. First of all, it's navy and white. The top has some pleats on it....but the surprise is in the back. Just look at that detail! And the cut out! The dress flares out at the waist. When I searched for this dress before it was delivered, I only saw it in a mint green color....I like this navy even better! I just love this dress too much to send it back!
I think this might be my favorite fix yet! And that's hard to do since this is number 11. Gosh, next month will be my 12th fix. A whole year of fixes! I'm still excited every. single. time.! I might have to do a 1 year check in post after I receive that box that maybe talks about which pieces are still my favorite and stood the test of time, any surprises from pieces I thought I might not like and did... If you want to join the fun, start filling out your Stitch Fix questionnaire!
