Stitch Fix August 2015 Review & Giveaway

Another month, another Stitch Fix! I always get excited to receive a package on my doorstep every other month or so from Stitch Fix. To recap, Stitch Fix is a clothing service that you can schedule monthly or to fit your schedule. For a $20 styling fee (which is put towards anything you keep) you’ll receive a box of 4 clothing items and one accessory. They pick items based on your size and style profile. It’s always a fun surprise to see what my stylist, Kimberly, has picked out for me. This month I totally spaced it and hadn’t updated my Pinterest Fashion Board with anything from Stitch Fix I’d been eyeing, so it was interesting to see what Kimberly had picked for me on her own!

Overall, I think she did an awesome job, but to be honest, after the #NSale shopping I was feeling a little guilty and decided not to keep anything for myself. However, I did still keep something… but it’s for one of you! Read on to find out what I received this month, and what I’m giving away. :)

Stitch Fix August 2015 Review & Styling

Stitch Fix August 2015 // Just Black Dean Skinny Jean Petite in Dark Green // hellorigby.com seattle fashion blogger Just Black Dean Skinny Jean in Dark Green, Size 4P, $78 – Returned
I’ve heard rave reviews of the Just Black skinny jeans, so I was thrilled to see a pair in my Fix. Unfortunately, the sizing was wonky for me – too loose in the hips/waist, but tight/fitted everywhere else. I did like the fun color, even if green isn’t a color I particularly am crazy about.

Stitch Fix August 2015 // 41Hawthorn McQue Solid Lace Sleeve Blouse in Navy // hellorigby.com seattle fashion blogger 41Hawthorn McQue Solid Lace Sleeve Blouse in Navy, Size Small, $48 – Returned
I thought this was such a great top. I liked the fit and the drape, but when it came down to it, I have something similar in my wardrobe already, and I wasn’t sure I would wear this enough. I’m kind of regretting passing on it now, but oh well.

Stitch Fix August 2015 Review & Styling // Papermoon Bastille Tulip Sleeve Blouse in Off-White // hellorigby.com seattle fashion blogger Papermoon Bastille Tulip Sleeve Blouse in Off-White, Size Small, $38  – Returned
I liked this top, but after seeing it in photos, I realized the white made me look way larger than I felt I looked in real life. What I loved about this were the pretty tulip sleeves, which I found flattering on my not-so-petite arms. White is such a difficult color, so I requested Kimberly re-send this in a different color. Fingers crossed they have this in another neutral tone!

Stitch Fix August 2015 // Renee C Lahna Printed Dress in Fuchsia // hellorigby.com seattle fashion blogger Renee C Lahna Printed Dress in Fuchsia, Size Small, $78 – Returned
Out of the box I thought this was a fun dress… however on, I felt like it was too long and the print too oversized for my frame. Cute, but not for me.

Stitch Fix August 2015 Review & Styling // 31 Bits Aria Beaded Bib Necklace in Coral // hellorigby.com seattle fashion blogger 31 Bits Aria Beaded Bib Necklace in Coral, $46 – Kept
I kept this for one of you! I love it. However, I don’t need any new jewelry right now… so why not share the love? Get yourself entered below if you want to rock this piece.

    No I haven’t tried Stitch Fix…I always worry about clothes not fitting. My favorite place to shop is Talbots.

    I still haven’t tried Stitch Fix but I may give it a shot one day. I’m such a thrifter though so they seem a little pricey sometimes.

    I haven’t tried Stitch Fix, mostly because I can’t spend that much on clothes, although I would love to have someone choose some stuff for me.
    I agree with your assessment, all the clothes you were sent this time seemed like they were just ALMOST right, but not quite.

      Thanks Breenah! It would be nice to find something similar at a lower price point. I find a lot of the clothing Stitch Fix sends to be more “fun” pieces which I prefer to spend less on since they’re not going to be in my closet forever.

    I love Stitch Fix! I am getting my 7th fix next week, and I can’t wait! I usually keep one or two things from each one. Sometimes it can be frustrating when things don’t fit or aren’t quite my style, but a lot of times I end up discovering great pieces I would not normally have found on my own. I love the convenience, flexibility and fun of it.

    On a side note, my first thought was that I love your patterned pants, but then I realized those aren’t part of the fix!

      Ha! Nope, those were from Golden Tote. ;) I do love a good printed pant. I do the same with Stitch Fix – usually keep one or two items that I haven’t seen anywhere else!

    Hi Jenn and Rigby,
    I found your site by doing some Google and Pinterest searches after seeing someone walking the most beautiful, regal dog yesterday. Ah, it’s a Shiba Inu! I’m not in the “market” for a dog right now (market is totally the wrong word). Actually, I’m always dreaming of getting a dog. Just as a responsible future pet owner, this is not the time. Our grandpuppy, a golden retriever, exhibits many Shiba Inu tendencies. I think she’s a wanna-be! And now that I’ve seen so many beautiful Shibas, who wouldn’t? Good information that you’ve shared. Also, you’re a good generation younger than me, but your outfits are adorable, especially for our PNW climate, as freaky as it has been this summer. I’ll be stopping by your site when my neighbor is nowhere to be seen and I want to see a cute Shiba Inu.

      Hi Julie! Aw, that’s too funny! So glad you found us and learned a bit more about breed. They’re definitely a unique breed, too funny your grandpuppy is similar in personality – you definitely don’t hear that too often, haha! :)

    love that lace top! someone else got it and it like burned when she was using her hair dryer or something, so it’s probably for the best you didn’t keep it ;)

    I love Stitch Fix although it can be pricey and you can get similar items at TJ Maxx for a lot less. I still order occasionally and I have to say that I LOVE about 95% of what they send me.

      Definitely true, I think the convenience factor is a nice perk and it’s fun to have someone pick out items for you though! ;)

    I haven’t tried Stitch Fix. I’d consider it as long as it’s not one where it’s automatic every month unless you opt out. I just don’t want to pay $20 every month!

      I did every other month! Then after a year, I would just randomly order a month at the beginning of a season, if I got a referral credit or birthday/Christmas money. And if you do every other month, you can still drag the “send date” to another time. So, every 6 weeks or 10 weeks. I saw your comment and thought I’d let you know because I don’t know if it was always like that!

      Oops – somehow missed responding to this, sorry Mattie! They let you choose what dates you get your fix, however if you don’t change it, they do come every 30 days. Hope that makes sense!

    It seems like I always see you post and see something like that really pretty dress, but anyone who is dressing a petite person would know not send it. I’m not an expert on body types, but my mom and I have different types, and mine changed during college, so anyone who looks at an easy chart on “dress for your body type” wouldn’t send that dress! So weird.

      Yeah, sometimes I feel like people don’t believe I’m short, or that I don’t want to show off my bust or that it’s the size it is… even when the measurements are there. It’s not just Stitch Fix, it’s been almost every clothing subscription I’ve tried. :/

    I’ve heard of but never tried out Stitch Fix before. I’m glad you shared about your experience, and I’m definitely interested in learning more. I feel like I could benefit from the help of a stylist!

      Stitch Fix is definitely worth a shot if you’re in the market for a few new styles and a personal shopper. Hope you get to try it out soon!

    Great review! I’ve always wondered about subscription boxes like stitch fix, and you did a nice job here summing up the perks!

    I know your pants aren’t part of Stitch Fix but I have to say I LOVE them! I still haven’t tried any clothing services but my favorite place right now is an online boutique called Piper & Scoot.

    i’ve been really bad about updating my Pinterest boards too. That necklace is really cute, what a great idea to do a giveaway with it. I plan on entering soon!

    The necklace that you kept is so beautiful. I have never tried StitchFix, but I have tried other clothing subscription services. I love the try before you buy services because they really help keep my wardrobe fresh!

    I don’t personally subscribe to Stitchfix, but I ordered it for my mom and she absolutely loves it! My favorite shopping spot is J Crew, but LOFT is a close second!

    I haven’t tried Stitch Fix yet. My favorite places to shop are Target, Kohl’s, and Forever 21. Too bad about these items not fitting correctly. I’m hoping the other color in the blouse turns out better. Thank-you. :)

    I haven’t stitch fixed yet, but I’m tempted. I prefer to find bargains, so I’m hesitant to pay full price on Stitch Fix. Thanks for the chance to win!
