Stitch Fix August 2016 Review

How it works:

1. Fill out your Style Profile

2. Pick the date you’d like to receive your shipment

Select a delivery date from the calendar. At the time your Stylist selects your items, you will be charged a $20 styling fee. That $20 will be applied as a credit toward anything you keep from your shipment.

3. Try everything on in the comfort of your home

4. Buy what you like and return the rest

  • Take three days to decide what you’ll purchase and what you’d like to send back. You’re only charged for items you choose to keep when you check out.
  • Check out by logging into your account to pay for the items you want to keep. The $20 styling fee will be applied as credit toward any items you purchase. If you buy all five items, we’ll give you 25% off the entire purchase!
  • Simply return the items you don’t want in our prepaid mailer and drop it into any USPS mailbox. Stitch Fix clients enjoy free shipping both ways as a benefit of using our service.

5. Tell us what you think

If you choose to receive recurring shipments, we’ll automatically schedule the delivery date for your next shipment. You can always choose an alternative date that better suits your needs or opt out of regularly scheduled shipments entirely. Stitch Fix does not require a membership fee or a monthly subscription.

  1. 41Hawthorn Aribau Twist Neck Halter Blouse:  $54

I LOVE these shoes.  My stylist found these on my pinterest board as well.  AND every Toms shoe that is bought the company donates a pair of shoes to a child in need. These are not only pretty but they are so comfortable as well.


3. Le Lis Lavania Lace Knit Top: $48

This top is adorable and can be worn with jeans for a casual look or dressed up as well.  I love this top with my shorts shown below and my toms shown above.  Adorable outfit!


4. Dear John Finnegan Cuffed Short: $58

I love Dear John brand shorts.  They have just the right amount of stretch.  I wasn’t sure about the red ones that I received but I tried them on and LOVED them!  That is something I learned from stitch fix.  Don’t judge the item by the look.  Try it on!!


5. Honey Punch Seaside Mix Material Top: $38

Not only did I have this top pinned on pinterest but it only cost $38!!!  It is more adorable in person.  The colors on the back are beautiful!! This is my favorite piece in this fix.
