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.
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.
I was mesmerized by this door. The color is so full of life. <3
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.
Front lace detailing.
The back of the dress goes all the way to the neck.
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.
Front detail. You can see how the colors go so nicely together.
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.
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.
How do you ladies like my lion friend? So regal.
I wore navy nail color, and my wishbone bangle.
Back lace print detail.
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.
