This is the box I’ve been waiting for. This is what my Stitch Fix dreams are made of. This is the box when I kept it all.

My lovely ladies, if you’ve been around theboxqueen for a while you know how much I adore Stitch Fix, and how I find a couple new additions to my closet every month from this fun personal styling service. Can’t wait to share with you one of my best “fixes” so far.

Dear new readers, if this is the first time you are stumbling upon theboxqueen, you can find all my previous Stitch Fix Reviews here and join us in the fun. 🙂 Let’s get into the details.

STITCHFIX AUGUST 2014
STITCHFIX AUGUST 2014

Since I wrote my latest review in May, I have taken extensive trips, and have been traveling most of summer. I was craving Stitch Fix BIG TIME.

It was beyond exciting to receive a box full of amazing patterns, and colors including my all time favorite florals and lace. ( I’ve been asking my beloved stylist Ishara for both forever, so thanks Ishara for listening once again.  <3 ) Totally worth the wait! Another lovely surprise was to see all five pieces fit perfectly. It became evident to me that there was not a chance in the world I was sending back any of the five. This is how my July/August fix became the one I kept it all.

How Stitch Fix Works and How to Get Your Best Fix

  • At Stitch Fix Website, you fill out a VERY detailed style profile. They ask everything from your height, weight, to top and bottom sizes. You include details on the types of styles you like such as glamorous, preppy or boho as well as a bunch of info on how you want things to fit.

Theboxqueen’s Tip: Be as honest with yourself here as possible. I remember when I first filled my style profile, I answered the Q’s with more of what I dream my style to be rather than what was actually needed for my current lifestyle. I am a mom of three young kids. I love glam style, and incorporate that into my life here and there. The truth is most glam pieces are not functional for my everyday life. I now ask for more casual styles.

My suggestion is to fill out the style profile even if you are not ready to order just now; it’ll give you an idea on your style and you’ll get a sense on what Stitch Fix is about.

  • You pay a $20 styling fee upfront. This is applied to your keepers, so if you keep at least one piece you don’t lose it.  Also when you keep your whole box ( like I did here) you get 25% off the entire purchase. I always keep at least one piece as I would hate to lose my styling fee.
  • Make a Pinterest board that is a good representation of your style. Pin types of Stitch Fix pieces you like as well as your own photos so the stylists can see who they are styling and your fashion choices.

Theboxqueen’s Tip: Here is my personal Stitch Fix Pinterest Board. I pin what I like from Stitch Fix here as well as how I styled previous pieces so the stylists can get a better idea of what I like, my body type etc. I think these all help them find the best pieces for me.

  • Leave detailed notes to your stylist when you check out. When it’s time for checking out, they ask you for feedback on your fix. Write why you loved your keeper item(s), and the specific reasons why a piece didn’t work for you.

Theboxqueen’s Tip: I always make sure to include details such as ” The waist was a tad too tight” or ” The color wasn’t flattering on me or ” ” The skirt was two inches too short for my taste”. The more specific the better.

  • Make requests but know that there are no guarantees. One fun thing about Stitch Fix is the surprise factor, and how it pushes you out of your comfort zone.
  • If you don’t want to wait too long for fixes, sign up for automatic shipments. You can determine the frequency. I usually go for once a month nowadays but I may make it more frequent again once the new season rolls in.
  • You have three days to decide, and mix and match with your own clothes. When you are done, you send back everything you don’t want to keep; in a prepaid envelope included with your box. Love how quick and easy this system works.

I know you are waiting to see the beauties. Here we go. 🙂

This first piece made me squeal with happiness. What’s not to love? The tank top has flowers, layers, and it is pink & green. The shape of the tank is pretty perfect too. It was such an easy decision to keep it. I love my styling cards, keep them in a photo album for organization. I’ll surely style my top with denim in fall under an open cardigan.

I was at Alacati, a small town near the Aegean sea, traveling when I wore this outfit. I usually don’t include a lot of pics of the same look, but I wanted to share with you this beautiful place.

Collective Concepts Jayde Layered Floral Print Tank ($64) This was the romantic trip I was telling you about. The three day one I took with my husband when we left the kids with my parents. It was a nice change of pace. We spent the day walking the cobblestone streets, and taking pics of the wonderful local buildings, historical houses, and local artwork.

There were street side coffee shops, and restaurants everywhere. LOVE those. Eating outside is the best.

These are the windmills, accessible from downtown. I realize the top is a bit too loose from the side in this pic but in reality it actually falls closer to my body though still relaxed. It must be how I am standing.

I appreciate the vibrancy in the color scheme. I thought this statemet necklace, also in the green family, went nicely with the top.

I chose white shorts as a neutral balancing element to pair the tank with as I went with color for the accessories including the mint green shoes. The little cross body bag is also in neutral.

This dress is everything. ( When Rachel Zoe says “everything” I love it, and the word actually fits this dress haha) It’s the “just right” length, color ( which is actually much lighter than the pic on the styling card), and style. The fit would be flattering on many types of bodies. LOVE!

The night outfit on the styling cards was my inspiration.

41 Hawthorn Clementine Lace Detail Chiffon Dress ($78) This one dress (Stitch Fix’s in house brand) embodies so many things I adore. Pink, purplish color- check, lace trim -check, and a twirl inducing full skirt- check check check. I couldn’t stop twirling in it, reminded me of my New Years dress as an eight year old. It was navy, with polka dots and a big red bow. I could love this dress just for reminding me of those memories. Thanks Stitch Fix.

I chose all black accessories. The lace peep toes added a bit of glamorous edge, and my Charles Jourdan purse is a good evening bag size. Keeps my cards, id, phone, and make-up.

Choice of jewelry is a rose shaped bangle, and colorful drop earrings.

This is an instagram shot of how I styled the dress another evening, with different shoes, and a clutch.

Stitch Fix paired the Flutter Top with pants for both day, and night. My first instinct was to match this top with white pants as well. Instead of flats I added peep toe neutral heels.

Papermoon Yanna Floral Print Flutter Sleeve Blouse ($48) The blouse has a marbled print of florals. The turquoise, and purple mixed in with the coral/pink is stunning.

I feel like this top has a classical touch to it; made me want to style it classically with white pants, neutral slingback pumps, and a neutral bag. I used extra large coral stone stud earrings in a star shape, and a modern gold tone bangle- sometimes all you need is simplicity.

These shorts are so fun. For one, they are completely true to their name- soft and comfy. I was initially worried they would be too short, and too tight. Well they are short. 🙂  I mostly wore them during travels at beach towns instead of in the city. They are not too tight at all though to my relief. I styled them for an after pool dinner with friends, closer to the night look on the styling cards.

Tart Rochelle Ikat Print Soft Short ($68) I chose to wear the Ikat Print with a ruffled scoop neck top, blue accessories, and an aqua clutch. The Zara shoes have a mix of textures & colors, and they are in my list of favorite summer heels.

Details

Two new bracelets. They are made of leather, glass beads, and silver.

The last piece out of my Stitch Fix box is the V-neck lace trim detailed top. This one also has a strap of lace detailing on the back. I wore this outfit to a sightseeing trip, visiting a palace. I went with jeans similar to the day outfit in the styling cards.

Pomelo Lana Lace Detail V-Neck Tank ($58) I’ve always liked wearing white, black, and grey together. I wore grey Mary Jane thick heels so I could walk a bit more easily, and added some color with the pop of red.

I took maybe fifty pics in front of this spectacular door. So intricate craftmanship. <3

Overall Impressions: My long time stylist Ishara did so good listening to my needs, kinds of patterns/ styles I love, and the shapes that work best for my body type. I am SO happy with this month’s Stitch Fix, and have made a little capsule wardrobe from the five pieces, coming up with many many outfits.This box was also especially convenient. I was super busy running from one place to another, and enjoyed this aspect of the service even more.

Have you treated yourself to a Stitch Fix yet? What has been your experience with the service? I can’t wait to connect with you, and talk about our Stitch Fixes. So much fun sharing the excitement and enthusiasm we have for Stitch Fix. <3

  • What a LOVELY fix and your photos are simply the best!

    • It was my dream fix, and makes me very happy to know you enjoy the photos. I love taking them. <3 Happy weekend, XO, Elif

  • fashionguru

    I loved all the pieces and you look amazing on all. Now after becoming a Golden Tote edict and a Wantable fanatic I am afraid to give a try on stitch fix, just because I am afraid that another subscription might hurt my budget. Even though you have almost convinced me. 🙂
    I loved the pictures in Alacati. I would love to see that town one day.

    • Thx Ferda. It does sound like the next step would be Stitch Fix after those two haha, maybe try it once- the worst you would lose is $20 and there is no commitment 🙂 It is pretty addicting though, so true 🙂 You have to see Alacati, that place is the cutest town ever. It was my second time there, love it. Have a wonderful Saturday, XO, Elif

  • Cheryl

    A fabulous fix! I would have kept everything, too. I think it makes a huge difference when you provide detailed notes, link to a Pinterest board, etc, as it helps your stylist really get to know you and your likes. As always, love your styling, and your pictures are stunning!

    • Totally! The improvement between my very first fix and these last ones is HUGE. I always pin like a crazy women, and try to write as much detail as possible. Love that now stylist notes can be edited until shipment, I always wanted to add things before as an afterthought and couldn’t. Yayy for that! 🙂 Thanks for the sweet words Cheryl, the places were so beautiful taking the pics were extra fun. Have a nice weekend, XO, Elif

  • Nuray Baysak

    Your reviews are always so full of great informatıon and wonderful pictures. This one is no different. I really enjoyed your gorgeous photos and wrote down your tips to get the best fix. Thanks for all the attention to detail.

    • I try to do my best to be informative and have nice photos. Thanks so much for noticing and your support. 🙂 Hope all the tips will be helpful for you. XOXO, Elif

  • The layered tank is so cute!

    • I love it myself. Such a nice print too. 🙂 XO, Elif

  • Sophia

    Best Stitch Fix review. From the load of info to the pics. I always look forward to these. It’s cute the pink dress reminds you of your childhood.

    • Thx for putting a huge smile on my face. I put a lot of effort in these reviews and so delighted to know they are useful to you Sophia. <3 That dress; I love it. Can't stop twirling in it. Have a wonderful new week, XOXO, Elif

  • Great box Elif!! Love the way you styled that tank and the dress especially!!

    • I was so happy to receive such a dream box 🙂 Thx Priyanka. Have a nice Monday, XOXO, Elif

  • Wow! You got some awesome pieces this time! I love that first floral two layer tank! So pretty and that pink layer peeking out at the bottom is such a great detail. I also love the white tank with black lace- so right up my alley! Glad you got your dream box this time!

    • The white tank does remind me of your outfits Gina 🙂 It was such a nice surprise this box. the pink tank has everything I like and the dress was a personal fave too. Thank dear. XOXO, Elif

  • dousedinpink

    You hit the jackpot with the box this month! Love all of the pieces, especially the floral layered tank the dress! You look amazing!

    • Thx Jill 🙂 It really was the jackpot equivalent of Stitch Fix 🙂 XOXO, Elif

  • alisonlumbatis

    Oh my, your pieces are amazing! It’s so hard to pick a favorite. The way you styled all of them is great!

    • Thx Alison you are so sweet! I am enjoying all the pieces! 🙂 XOXO, Elif

  • I love all of these outfits. I really wish we had stitchfix here in UK. I like the fuchsia dress plus the floral tank. I like how you style the items too!

    • I wish they shipped to UK Lorna. It is so much fun guessing what they’ll send, tweaking the style profile, and pinning to my SF board to show the stylists what I like. The surprise factor gets me each time 🙂 So happy you like the styling, thx dear, XOXO, Elif

  • WOW! that Pink dress is beautiful 🙂 looks great on you

  • I am in love with the floral tank and the pink dress – they look awesome on you! Off to request them for my next fix. 🙂

    • Those two are really pretty cute. Did you have luck getting them in your next fix? I hope so. XOXO, Elif

  • Hooray for the perfect box! Every time you post a StitchFix review, I am tempted to try it… it’s just that the “surprise factor” is one of those things that I can’t totally get with. When friends give me clothes as gifts or when they clean out their closets, I almost always end up returning everything! I know I’d be able to return stuff to StitchFix, but there’s still something that’s keeping me from giving it a try! What’s my deal?

    • I think you would enjoy this!! Give it a try once, if it doesn’t work you don’t have to continue. I think the styling fee is definitely worth the surprise and the anticipation haha. Have a lovely Friday dear, XOXO, Elif

  • Your blog is so lovely! The design is great 🙂

    where did you get the mint and gold statement necklace you are wearing with the first outfit?

    • Hi, that necklace is from Wantable. One of my favorite statement necklaces. I also reviewed here among with some other pieces. Hope this helps! XOXO, Elif

  • First of all, you look amazing in everything so that’s not fair. 🙂

    In my first box, I got your shorts but in a sleeveless top. It was the first piece I kept. So funny if you wore both pieces together. I haven’t had such good luck lately, but I’ll give them a couple more tries. I’m madly in love with their jewelry so that makes the $20 worth it.

    Thanks for the great reviews.

    • Theboxqueen

      Tiffany I can’t believe I am just seeing this comment. It’s been 6 months arghh. Makes me glad I ditched to Disqus commenting. First of all thanks so much for your lovely words. You are very welcome and hope you’ve visited again in the meantime for my most recent ones. <3 Haha can't believe those shorts fabric came in a top. Would be a hilarious pair worn together :-)) I've just recently started getting their accessories and completely love them. Hope you are having a great weekend. XOXO, Elif

  • SnapsandBits

    Of course I had to go back and read the other one where you kept it all. Great fix!
