After getting last month’s Fix late, this month’s has arrived early. I basically have now received two Fixes in a month! If you are not familiar with Stitch Fix, it is a great online personal styling service that surprises you with 5 items each time you request a delivery (a “Fix”). I started the service back in January and love all the great clothes, jewelry and shoes that have been sent. I have always kept at least one item, and last month for the first time, I kept all 5! My coworkers are really starting to notice. I am constantly receiving compliments on my outfits and friends are telling me I’ve got such great fashion sense!

In my note to Kaley (who now seems to be my consistent stylist), I mentioned that I seemed to be buying a lot of items with floral prints (check them out in April, May, and June reviews), so I wanted to avoid floral this time. I didn’t have any specific needs, so I asked her to focus on casual weekend wear like denim cutoffs and tank tops. It is starting to get hot out here and I want some things to stay cool in this summer.
I’m bummed that she wasn’t able to find me any denim cutoffs. I have really been eyeing distressed denim cutoffs. But let’s get to the new items and pictorial reviews. You may notice the quality of these pictures is quite a few steps up from my closet mirror selfies. I am thrilled that my husband agreed to play photographer for an hour and was able to capture some amazing shots (thanks, My Love)!
41Hawthorn Montgomery Cross Front Knit Top – XS ($48)
This top is a very soft and light top with interesting detail in the print as well as the faux “wrap” look. It fit me well, but I wasn’t quite sold on how it crossed in the front. The placement of the v-neck kept shifting a bit. If I hadn’t just purchased all 5 items from my last Fix, I may have kept this one, but the budget was a bit tighter this month.
Kut from the Kloth Kate Boyfriend Jean – 2 ($88)
Per Kaley’s instructions, I paired the cross-front top with the boyfriend jeans and the Seavees Baja yellow slip on sneakers I received in last month’s Fix.
Jeans wasn’t something that I asked for this time. I was hoping more for shorts than pants since we will likely have 80 and 90 degree temps for the next couple months. These fit ok, but I’m not a fan of baggier boyfriend jeans in general. And the hubby said they made my butt look flat! That’s a “No”!
Pixley Ivonne Halter Top – XS ($48)
This halter is sassy for a date night look. I paired it with my Karen Kane Scallop Faux Suede skirt from June’s Box as well as my Vince Camuto sandals (similar here). I like the paisley print in these earthy tones. My daughter even decided to participate the photo shoot below.
Unfortunately, the fit was way off on this one. It may not look so bad in the pictures, but the top was tight across the bust and really loose with lots of excess material around the bottom. Too bad…I really like how the colors complement my hair color.
FUN2FUN Patson Pleated Henley Top – XS ($44)
This to was actually the first one I tried on out of the box. I immediately put together this outfit, going for a bold, summery look with my Anthropologie skirt, Stitch Fix necklace and cuff, and Guess Espadrille wedges. My husband said that it looked very “Mediterranean”. I agree and I love it! I have already worn this outfit to work.
One thing to note is that this top is a bit long. It will probably only work for me tucked in, but that’s fine by me.
Papermoon Mula Knit Tank – XS ($38)
I love the bright colors and stripes of this top. It is an extremely soft material and has a fun keyhole in the back. I paired it with a black Izod golf skort (similar here), but could have worn white capris with it as well. I really struggled with whether to keep this one. At first I didn’t want it because the bottom hem is long in the back and has some elastic that causes the shirt to bunch. Then I saw these pictures and started reconsidering. In the end, my budget and the fact that I didn’t “love” it won out, so it went back in the bag.
I only ended up keeping one item this time, but I had so much fun putting together outfits and a photo shoot for this!
