This is my second Stitch Fix Review for a summer wardrobe. And once again, I only kept less than half the items my stylist picked for me.
I was really hoping this fix would be a good one. I left my stylist a note saying I’d like some bright florals and maybe some pretty shorts like I received in my last fix, but from a socially ethical brand. Well, I did get some pretty florals, and I did get some shorts. But overall, the fix was disappointing.
Summer Stitch Fix Review: Box 2
Floral Tank Top
This floral tank top was the first thing I saw when I opened my box, and I was super excited because I absolutely love the print and the colors. The fit is fantastic too. The arm holes are not too big, like many tank tops, and the neck is perfect – not too high, not too low. The fabric is soft and light, which is great for hot summer days, but also nice for layering when it gets cooler. And body of the shirt isn’t super tight, which I appreciate because I’m rather sensitive about my mid-section. So this was a keeper!
I wasn’t sure about these shorts when I first pulled them out of the box. They looked really short, and side slits feel a bit sexy to me. But after trying them on, I actually really like them. They are a little shorter than I normally wear, but I don’t feel like they are too short. I appreciate the small amount of stretch and that they are American made. I was a little disappointed since I told my stylist I’d like some pretty floral shorts. But I did happen to be also looking for denim shorts, and these were a good fit. So I kept them.
I have mixed feelings about this dress. Overall, it’s a great dress. It’s American made, the cut is very flattering and the fabric is lovely. It’s that fluid, slinky type of fabric that hangs really nicely. But it just isn’t quite my style. I tried this with a few layering pieces, and it didn’t really work. The neckline in the back was sticking out the top of the layering piece and it looked awkward. Also, the print is pretty but again, not quite my style. So this was a pass.
I’ll be completely honest here. When I pulled this dress out of my box, I literally laughed out loud. To me, it looked like an old lady’s skirt suit from the 60s or something. But when I tried it on, I actually really love the cut and fit. It’s very flattering and I love the pockets! But it’s a bit too dressy for me, so I passed on this too.
Oh yeah. And they sent me sandals. I wasn’t really looking for sandals, and these were pretty forgettable. In fact, I forgot to take a close-up photo of them for this post! But they are the brown sandals I’m wearing in all of the photos above. The quality didn’t feel that great and they weren’t very comfortable. Plus, they were made in China by a brand with no published social ethics standards. So they went back.

I think the most disappointing thing about this fix is that it felt like my stylist didn’t even look at my Pinterest board. For those who’ve never used Stitch Fix , they ask for a link to a style inspiration board on Pinterest (in addition to having you fill out a style profile). And the dresses especially don’t feel like they fit with anything I have on that board. The shorts and sandals are basic enough that they probably fit in almost any wardrobe. And the tank top is perfect for me. But even the tank top feels like a lucky pick because there isn’t really anything like that on my Pinterest board either.
Here’s the board. What do you think? Did my stylist match my style with these picks? Or did she miss the mark?
