In the time since May’s box arrived, Michigan decided to skip spring and jump right into summer. I totally approve! And my June Stitch Fix box is here!
If you want to know how Stitch Fix works, visit one of my other reviews on this site, located in the tab under the banner at the top of this blog.
This month, I asked Kimberley for some pieces we had discussed through Facebook (we became Facebook friends last month. It’s the best), such as a white blouse, denim, or jean jacket, colors like red or purple, a non-clingy pencil skirt, and more. I also updated my Pinterest board to reflect some of the newer, summery items I liked which are offered by Stitch Fix.
Let me show you what she sent!
Skies Are Blue — Durin V-Neck Top; Extra Small; $48
Orange is typically an unkind color against my skin tone, but I really wanted to try this top on and was pleasantly surprised to discover I liked the color and pattern. I also need more casual summer clothes (Over the last year I’ve focused on more work-friendly attire), so I was happy to see a cute tank in the box. I love that the straps are adjustable and definitely need that in most strappy tank tops. The cut outs on the neckline, which add more interesting qualities, are great too, and I appreciate that the piece is lined with the same orange fabric, so I don’t need to worry about inadvertently flashing anyone. This tank looks great by itself, and also works really well under a darker wash jean jacket. Once I get that summer tan it’ll look great. This one is going in my closet!
Kut From the Cloth — Gracelyn Pencil Skirt; 4P; $58
This was a big question mark for me when I pulled this out of the box. The color was pretty, but I never really know what to do with casual pencil skirts. The two descriptions just don’t seem to go together in my opinion. I tried it on and noticed right away it was a little bit too big, and then found a basic black top in my closet to pair with it. Unfortunately the outfit really didn’t do anything for me and I didn’t care enough to try other clothes with the skirt, so I’ll be sending it back.
Papermoon — Bastille Tulip Sleeve Blouse; Extra Small; $44
This. This is what I’m talking about! I absolutely LOVE this top, like I knew I would when I saw it in the box. I couldn’t wait to try it on and start mixing and matching it with other items I own. This piece is the perfect amount of dressy and it works really well with my Lila Ryan dark wash skinnies I purchased from Stitch Fix a few months ago, as well as my gray pencil skirt, black dress pants, and just about every other type of bottom you can think of. The sleeves are darling. When picking out accessories, I unusually wanted to match it with something gold because of the off-white color. If you know me, I don’t really own any gold jewelry, but I found a great option at Charming Charlie. There’s no way I’m not keeping this.
Liverpool — Anita Printed Skinny Pant; 4P; $78
This is probably as far out of my comfort zone as possible. I’ve never really been into printed pants, and these were pretty out there for me. They are technically a dressy legging, definitely fit the part, and they were very comfortable. However, they were a bit too long for me and I just couldn’t get past the loud print. Needless to say, they were off as soon as possible and into the return bag. Not my style.
Papermoon — Shila Swing Knit Top; Extra Small; $44
This was another top I wasn’t expecting to like because of the print, but again, I did once it was on me. The problem with this top, however, is that it’s not petite, and therefore has huge armholes. This means I absolutely have to wear a cami underneath, and even so, my bra strap could still be seen. Too bad; I might have said yes to this one. Back it goes with a disappointed sigh.
The variety in this box was great, and I ended up liking more than I expected! I also like that even though Kimberley chose some louder pieces than normal, I appreciate that she sent plainer items to appease my less adventurous side. This fix definitely welcomed summer in a great way for me!
What’s your opinion of this month’s items?
What do you think I should request next month? I think I will ask for more casual summer items, or even some shoes, but I’d love your opinion. Leave me a comment in the post!
