Stitch Fix July 2016 Review #10

Stitch Fix July 2016 Review via @stitchesandpress

Sometimes the best clothing items are the ones you didn’t know you “needed”, until your Stitch Fix stylist sent it to you and realized its value. This was a welcome but unexpected Stitch Fix shipment. Here are the contents of my 10th Stitch Fix box.

  1. STREET LEVEL Roxy Cork Clutch ($48) - For special occassions I trade my everyday crossbody bag for smaller handheld options that function primarily to hold the essentials (phone, wallet, lip gloss, bag of gummy bears). Although I love the look of a clutch tucked neatly under the arm, I also appreciate a bag that comes with an optional crossbody strap, as this one does. The interior is simple black fabric with pipped cork lining the opening of the pockets. I love that it’s not overly embellished so it goes with anything, but still has a unique vibe with hints of gold sparkle and cork finishing.

  2. PIXLEY Sondra Textured Knit Dress, S ($78) - Despite living in the South, I own very few summer dresses. This Stitch Fix box arrived on a day where the humidity was in the mid 70’s, the UV index was 11, and the temperature was pushing 90. The fabric is heavier than you would expect for a summer dress, but the weight keeps the material from bunching around the waist and contributes to a slimming silhouette. And while black doesn’t seem like the typical summer color, this item was on par with my style with the simple cut out details around the shoulder.

  3. 41Hawthorn Moni Studded Short Sleeve Blouse, S ($54) - This top was the most surprisingly piece in my box. It was the one item that I thought was an automatic no, but actually loved. The loose, flowy fabric is breathable and comfortable, yet avoids looking sloppy. This top can serve as a chic option for a professional ensemble.

  4. SKIES ARE BLUE Robledo Lace Top, S ($58) - This shirt is slightly cropped, but with high waisted pants the hem line hits right around the waist for a polished look that isn’t too revealing. I typically shy away from lace tops because they have the tendency to feel old and dated instead of chic and vintage. However, I was pleasantly surprised by this one. The eyelet pattern is intricate but not too busy. I especially love the scalloped hem and keyhole back closure.

  5. LIVERPOOL Phillip Straight Leg Trouser, 2 ($98) - I’ve been eyeing a variation of these cropped trousers for a while, since they seem like the ideal foundation for a variety of looks. This pair is sleek, simple and sophisticated. The cheery color makes a fun statement, yet is still able to complement a wide variety of tops and looks. The fit was perfect in the waist and upper thighs, but the cut was too tight around my calves. In general I have a tough time finding skinny pants that I’m comfortable, but these were close to a win.
