Well, well, well – look who just turned 50. I have noticed that with blogging, aging happens fast. Especially in Stitch Fix years. This means that 50 months ago I started receiving a monthly box and I haven’t stopped since, proving the theory to be false that all good things must come to an end [take that Geoffrey Chaucer — yes, this is the guy who originally said it apparently, google told me].
While I have much to talk about [hello, anybody else watch the bachelorette last night] I’m going to jump right into business. This fix was exactly what I wanted it to be – half love, half not so love. I say this only because I kept all 5 items in my last fix and well, the budget didn’t really want me to keep it all this month. The unfortunate part is that there are a few items I really, really, really want to keep – I just don’t know yet if I will or not. Oh the dilemma, be a gem and help me decide. Okay let’s do this thing.
Oh but wait, before we begin – did you notice in the title it says that one of you will be winning a $50 Stitch Fix gift card? You read that right sister friends – it is open to new and returning Stitch Fix customers so be sure to enter!
Here are a few words about Stitch Fix and how it all works for you virgins out there [it’s okay, I won’t tell anybody].
2. Order your first fix! Your card will be charged a $20 styling fee however, if you keep any item [one or more] you will be credited back the $20. Because of this I always recommend keeping at least one item or you are essentially giving away $20 for nothing in return. You will receive 5 items [made up of clothing, jewelry, and handbags, whatever you prefer]. I personally only want clothing in my fix so I just always let my stylist know!
3. Decide what you want to keep and what you want to send back [in a postage paid envelope]! You have 3 business days to do so – use this time to try everything on, see what you have in your closet that pairs well with it and don’t be afraid to say yes to something that you wouldn’t normally. That’s what makes Stitch Fix so fun! If you keep all 5 items you will receive 25% off your entire fix, winning!
It should be noted that while I have chosen to receive monthly fixes, this is in no way a subscription service and you are able to decide when you want another fix, whether that be in 6 months or 2 years from your first fix! As always, if you ever have any questions feel free to leave them in the comments section below.
Okay now seriously, here we go! Remember – If you see anything that you like below, feel free to pin away and/or ask your stylist in the notes section of your next fix for something similar! I am the queen of copying other fixes!
1. Fate Selita Strappy Back Top – Small – $48 – Kept
There is no denying that I love this tank oh so much – in fact, I wore it the first evening I opened this fix. The color is so pretty, I love the strappy back and I love even more how well it pairs with a brown leather jacket [shown above] so that I can transition into the fall with it. Hands down my favorite item in this fix.
2. Crescent Mendoza Tassel Trim Top – Small – $48 – Undecided
This tank is super cute and unlike anything I really have in my closet. I love the boho / tasssel vibe it has going on and the blush pink color which drips with feminine touches. The only question that I keep asking myself is how often would I really wear it? If I don’t know how to answer that question, I feel like back it should go. But it’s so cute though. LIFE IS SO HARD.
3.Michael Stars Mik Knit Crochet Detail Tank Dress – Small – $78 – Undecided
Okay so I get that $78 seems a little expensive for a 100% cotton dress because mostly it is expensive, however after trying this baby on and realizing how comfortable it is and how much use I really could get out of it [pair with a jacket for the fall] I think it may be a keeper. I love items that are easy and this dress looks adorable with wedges, booties, flats, sandals, etc. I feel like this is a great must-have item and the detail back doesn’t hurt either. Probably keeping.
4. Street Level Maddox Fringe Clutch – $48 – Returned
I can totally appreciate the fringe trend [I’ve been wearing and digging these shoes lately!] but this seemed like a heck of a lot of fringe in a small amount of space. I don’t love accessories that overwhelm the outfit and I felt like this clutch did just that. Sorry but back it goes. On the bright side, it does look kinda adorable with this top and heels.
5. Tart Milla Crew Neck Knit Top – Small – $58 – Returned
I love this top, I really do – so cute, so soft, a great basic and the list goes on. The main reasons why I am not keeping it is because I feel like I have similar tops in my closet already and because I’ve been eating a lot of candy recently and it felt a little tight. Remind me to lay off the Jelly Bellys next month. Or don’t because juicy pear and peach are where it’s at. Nothing but love for this shirt, it’s just not for me at this point in time.
Alright there we go friends – one definite keeper, one I’m most likely keeping, one undecided and two returns. Not bad if I don’t say so myself. Be the decision maker for me – pink tank and dress, what do I do?
ps. wearing this strapless bra with the tanks and dress featured above! I love this baby and so many of you who have purchased have reached out and said the same! nice work supporter of breasts, you did us well.

If there’s one thing the LIY Team did this Summer [besides go for boat rides and drink seltzers] – it was read. Audio books, Kindle editions, good old fashion physical copies… you name it, we read it. While we went through a few that weren’t so great, we did find a few worth passing along! […]
