It felt like my Stitch Fix #25 came pretty quickly this month. After the amazing Stitch Fix that was my May box, I was curious to see what would follow those pretties. ( see my May Stitch Fix here – it’s really good; I kept the whole box! 🙂 ) My lovely stylist of course managed to impress me as usual, and chose five lovely items for my (technically) June Stitch Fix.

If you’ve just found TheBoxQueen I invite you to read all my posts in the Stitch Fix reviews section. You’ll find a wealth of information there on How Stitch Fix Works, Tips for Getting Your Best Stitch Fix, many styled outfits & style tips, two Stitch Fix’s where I kept it all – First Here, Second Here, and even a Stitch Fix Remix where I re-styled all previously styled pieces. (I’ll continue with these series soon.)

In my June Stitch Fix, I received two tops, a pair of pants, a shift dress, and a beaded statement necklace. As I haven’t kept the whole box this month, I’ll tell you whether I kept or sent back each piece and my reasoning under the pictures. Also, written under the photos, you’ll find links to the items in my outfits, and my style tips.

As always, I am also including the style cards that comes for each item in all Stitch Fix’s. My cards look a bit fuzzy, I guess there was a bit of a printing issue there. I think the pics will still give you an idea on how Stitch Fix stylists envisioned the pieces in outfits, followed by the looks I styled. Hope you enjoy ladies; let’s start! 🙂

First out of the box was this cheerful, and colorful ribbon strap top. It has such a fun, lively print that it was impossible to not notice it first. Stitch Fix showed this top styled with jeans, and a pencil skirt.

Pixley Milagra Ribbon Strap Blouse ($48)

This adorable blouse could be paired with just about anything. It could be worn with jeans, shorts, worn tucked into skirts, and with fabric pants. Stitch Fix also sent me this Kut from the Kloth pants this month, and I thought the pants, and the Pixley top made a charming pair.

STYLE TIP: Summer means sunshine, beaches, blue skies, and flowers. It means vivid colors, and happy prints. I love to put together colorful outfits in summer months. What I recommend is mixing and matching unpredictable hues together like the blues, and pinks with the orange/gold necklace.

When you choose to do an out of the box pairing such as this look, my advice would be to have a balancing common color that anchors all the other colors. In my outfit, it’s the blue in the top that is supported by my blue pumps. I also kept my clutch a neutral grey.

STATUS: KEPT

I couldn’t resist keeping the ribbon strap top. Perfect addition to my summer closet. LOVE it!!

The ZAD necklace is also from my June Stitch Fix box.

IMG_9936

The pants you see in my outfit is shown styled in a sporty look, and with a simple black tank in the Stitch Fix style cards.

Kut From The Kloth Siena Capri Pant ($58)

I love Kut From The Kloth brand. I’ve previously kept these pieces by the brand: These pants, and this vegan leather jacket. This particular piece was made for Stitch Fix by Kut From The Kloth; however you can find many great Kut From The Kloth Pants here. They have great cuts, and I love the fit of the brand in general. This pink one is particularly cute.

STATUS: SENT BACK

I absolutely loved the pants. The fit was lovely, too. I sent them back as I already bought a couple colorful pants from recent sales. I am a big big fan of Kut From The Kloth tough.

Zad Priscilla Multi-Beaded Strand Necklace ($38)

This Zad necklace is very similar to a necklace I received from Wantable here. This orange/gold version is perfect for summer. I couldn’t find the exact piece but liked these two necklaces from the same brand. Zad Necklace Option 1, Zad Necklace Option 2 

STATUS: SENT BACK

As I mentioned above, I have an almost identical necklace in a different color. I ended up sending this one back. I did really like it otherwise.

IMG_9963

A while ago I pinned the Dakota Crochet detail top on my Stitch Fix Pinterest board. My stylist  kindly included it in my June box. Stitch Fix styling card shows two outfits that are almost the same.

IMG_0208

Daniel Rainn Dakota Crochet Detail Halter Top ($68)

I wanted to do something completely different with the crochet detail halter top. As you can also see in the picture below, the untucked version of the top has a straight down fit. I didn’t find it flattering on me. Instead, taking my cue from mixing and matching unexpected colors/patterns, I chose to tuck it into a maxi skirt with an orange printed waist. I liked the end result of this mini pattern and color mix. 🙂

IMG_0245

Untucked version.

IMG_0232

STYLE TIP: I love maxi skirts with cute sleeveless tops. You can use any printed, colorful top and tuck it inside a maxi. You can either choose a skirt with a built in belt like mine or you could belt it with a wide belt. I think the outcome is a glam boho look perfect for the warm months.

IMG_0211

I think the print is gorgeous, and the crochet detail is always in style.

IMG_0212

Back of the top has a really pretty cut.

STATUS: SENT BACK

I almost kept this top, too. I think I would have kept it if I liked it more untucked. Although it’s a really beautiful piece, it wouldn’t have been very versatile for me. If it fits you better though, don’t miss out on it. So pretty!

The Skies are Blue shift dress is styled casually under a cardigan with flats, and for a night out with heels by Stitch Fix. 

IMG_0166

Skies Are Blue Ernest Printed Dress ($68)

The Skies are Blue dress has a lovely print, and a cute color palette of white, pink, and purple.

IMG_0153

STYLE TIP: These type of shift dresses lend themselves to casual or fancier outfits. As the dress is straight down, I wanted to show off the pretty neckline and shoulder cuts of the dress. A side braid helped with that. I chose high heel ankle strap shoes that are from a similar color family of the purple in the dress. White drop earrings, and a white clutch completed the look.

IMG_0172

STATUS: SENT BACK

I’ve recently bought a couple shift dresses. (usually they are not my style) Also this particular dress had a slight fit problem. Although it is the right size for me, and it fit me, it bunched up slightly around the hip area which is a no no for me. I ended up sending it back. I must say though if you get the right fit with it, the dress is quite lovely.

Have you tried Stitch Fix yet? As my Stitch Fix count increases month by month, now being on Stitch Fix #25, I repeat the same thing. I think you should give it a try at least once to see if this personal styling service is for you.

The boxes keep getting better as your stylists get to know you more, and the styling fee $20 is completely applicable as credit towards your purchase. In each of my Stitch Fix boxes I at least find that one piece that my closet can’t live without. If you choose to keep the whole box there’s a 25% discount. Seriously have fun with it once to figure out how you like Stitch Fix. Obviously, I absolutely love the surprise, great customer service, and convenience.

    June? where?! love the Dakota on you! clever girl to tuck it in! and those plum shoes? A-DORABLE.

    • Theboxqueen

      Hahaha Jody the way my Stitch Fixes have been sent my way the dates slowly crept to mid month from last days of each month so it had to be June right now in NW US depending on my previous fix publish dates LOL. Joking aside, thanks lovely lady. I am loving my plum shoes as well. Happy weekend. XOXO, Elif

  • I love the casual look of the first outfit and how you’ve achieved a perfect colour blocking. The shift dress is my favourite though!!

    Lu | http://www.balgarka.co.uk

    • Theboxqueen

      I really liked the cheerful colors/patterns they sent me and loved putting them together. The shift dress was so cute you are right. Wish it fit better. Thanks Lu, always so fun chatting with you. XOXO, Elif

  • I really love the top you kept. Definitely my favorite piece from this fix. 🙂

    • Theboxqueen

      Abby it is cute right? Glad you like it too- I absolutely couldn’t part with it 🙂 Happy Thursday. XOXO, Elif

  • I really like that top you kept! it’s a shame you didn’t keep any of the other pretty printed pieces, but you’re right if the fit isn’t good or you have something similar, they won’t get worn.

    Away From The Blue

    • Theboxqueen

      Exactly! Because of my love for shopping, and the variety of etailers/retailers I like, my goal is only to keep pieces that will be super versatile, and that’ll be worn many times. The top can go with so many outfits. 🙂 Always great to hear from you, happy Thursday. XOXO, Elif

  • Well the fact that your fix arrived early scares me, as I have a June fix scheduled to, but I’m not home right now as I am on vacation. I sure hope it doesn’t arrive when I’m away. I actually like everything you got except the necklace. But if you already have similar pants, you certainly don’t need to keep those, and if the fit isn’t right on the top, I understand why you returned those too.

    • Theboxqueen

      One box arrived early a few months ago once and the cycle began with my review being next months as a result. ( as the SF came at the very end of the previous month) This time tough if I get mine in June I think I’ll break the cycle by naming the post June2 :-)) Did you receive your June fix? Any cute pieces? I wasn’t that into the necklace myself especially as I had a similar one. I think if I didn’t keep my May box this one could be a keep all SF. Always great to chat with you. 🙂 XOXO, Elif

      • No, I haven’t received it yet, although I did get an email that it’s on it’s way. I’m just happy it didn’t come while I was on vacation. That would have been a disaster!

  • paulakiger

    These are all cute! I enjoyed your descriptions. The statement necklace really is adorable; I think it is what I would be tempted to keep the most! Followed you on all your channels; first time visitor from #SITS. 🙂

    • Theboxqueen

      Welcome to TheBoxQueen Paula. So happy you found me and you enjoyed the descriptions. 🙂 Happy Thursday. XOXO, Elif

  • Cheryl

    Love the top you chose, so cheerful. Stitch Fix is so much fun 🙂

    • Theboxqueen

      It is!! I can’t get enough of Stitch Fix. The top is cute right? Love the print and the vibrant blue. <3 XOXO, Elif

  • Marina

    Elif, you have the BEST Stitch Fix reviews I’ve found and you always look great in everything, plus your photography is wonderful! I am awaiting my second Fix and I am concerned because it seems that 90% of the pieces I’ve seen online have no waist emphasis at all. I am petite and bigger on top and that hanging straight down, boxy or flaring out from the top thing does me no favors. Do you think it’s just Stitch Fix, or is the waist just “out” in fashion right now?

    • Theboxqueen

      Marina thanks for your kind and sweet words. I appreciate them so much. So happy to hear you enjoy the reviews, I love working on them; and all the details that go along with them <3
      I also have a problem with no waist emphasis ( and mention it quite a bit – smaller waist, and looking disproportioned with straight down looks) the reason I love to use belts and tuck things in. I think it is not just SF. I got similar pieces in my other clothing subscriptions, and see them a lot at the stores.
      Your best bet with those would be a thin belt, or straight down styles not to have too much fabric (more close fitting) See my April Golden Tote review for some examples I have in this type of styles. Hope these help a bit! <3 Happy Thursday. XOXO, Elif

      • Jessica Rosen Bishop

        Hello,
        I am having the same struggles as Marina. I am on my third fix. I am petite with a huge bust (which of course is hard to fit in the first place, and super hard to flatter) and I find that the majority of the tops are super blousey and make me look as if I am late into my 2nd trimester. I have ask for structured pieces to no avail. And also find a lot of the tops make me look frumpy (or matronly).

        I just started reading your blog, and I enjoy how you style your items, and how you work basically casual items into your day to day wardrobe and always look put together. I also noticed that none of the items make you look frumpy. I guess it’s partly because of your body size, but also the items they send you just look much cuter than what I am getting.

        I work as a high school teacher so I have the liberty of being able to dress up or dress down as I need to.

        Any suggestions? (I don’t have a pinterest, and don’t want to get one. That’s a can of worms, I DON’T want to open right now…lol)

        • Theboxqueen

          Hi Jessica! Sorry to hear you are having problem with SF pieces/styles. 🙁 I think for me the Stitch Fix boxes kept getting progressively better especially after my 3rd or 4th box when I found a stylist that really got me and my body type. (I do pin a LOT of my favorite pieces as well as the outfits I put together in my Pinterest but I understand you don’t want to start one. )

          ****First of all thanks so much for saying the pieces don’t look frumpy on. For that, What I try to do is thinking how I can best highlight the piece in an outfit for my own use in case I keep it. For instance if it is a flowy top and it doesn’t seem like it’ll flatter me, I tuck it in. ( or style over a fitted piece if it’s a shirt) In the end I keep pieces that are versatile and that require not too much styling. (In other words pieces that are easier to make look good if that makes sense LOL. )

          ******To answer your question about how to get better items in the first place: What worked for me is to be SUPER specific if I strongly dislike an item. In my first ever SF ( which isn’t reviewed here) I got pretty much pieces that didn’t fit well, or colors that were bland. I wrote every little detail in the check-out survey that I didn’t like. I also let them know I love color, patterns, lace etc.
          Another strategy that has worked for some readers is emailing SF directly and asking for help. You can tell them about your body type, type of pieces that you like best on your body, and ask their help for a specific stylist or their suggestions. I did get emails from readers telling me that this has helped them, so hopefully it will help you too.
          Also have you considered asking for work appropriate dresses? I know this is not related to your questions, but just an idea. SF seems to have the loveliest dresses. 🙂

          Let me know how your next SF’s go! I would love to hear from you. Have a happy Tuesday! XOXO, Elif

          • Jessica Rosen Bishop

            Thank you for your advice. I did cave and make a pinterest page and it did help quite a bit, as my subsequent fix was much better. They also emailed me when I mentioned I was displeased with my last fix and they offered me a credit,and at least now I have a dialogue open with history of my concerns.

            I actually kept 3 items from this box, which is, as you know, a horrible number with stitch fix boxes, but I felt each of the 3 items had a strong place in my wardrobe, and I just couldn’t rationalize the final two, even though they said they would exchange one of the items for a different size, but it would be a final sale. And that would be a bit of a gamble with a $50 top.

            Are you aware of any sites, or facebook pages where people buy, sell, or trade stitch fix items? That might be helpful for me for the future.

            Again, Thanks a lot. I enjoy reading your posts and looking at the photos of your outfits.

  • Aylin

    I loved all the pieces on you except for the pants (the color is lovely, though) . I am seriously thinking of ordering a stitch fix when I return from vacation.

    • Theboxqueen

      Aylin I think you should try it at least once! It’s SUCH a fun anticipation, and you get to use your styling service credit for a purchase. They send a great mix of pieces including jewelry and bags if you specify you like them. I think you would enjoy trying it. Happy Thursday! XOXO, Elif

  • Mai Tran

    Love the halter top! What an eye-catching piece!

    • Theboxqueen

      It really was. I would have kept it if I didn’t have a super similar top at home. XOXO, Elif

  • Sibel Gultekin

    This is a really great stitch fix box. I love all of the pieces. I agree with your opinion on which piece to keep, thought the others are equally beautiful.

    • Theboxqueen

      It was another amazing box right after the wonderful May box. Stitch Fix has been doing a great job with my picks lately. I can’t wait for the next one. Happy Thursday. XOXO, Elif

  • Talba1

    Love your choice! But I also adored the Daniel Rainn Dakota Crochet Detail Halter Top as well. I do not know how it looks tucked out. But in it is beautiful:)

    • Theboxqueen

      The Crochet Detail Top seems to be a favorite. I would have kept it in a heartbeat if I didn’t have an almost identical top already. Thanks lovely, I am very happy with my choice of keeper item too. 🙂 XOXO, Elif

  • These are such cute outfits. I have never heard of stitch fix before now.

    • Theboxqueen

      Welcome to TheBoxQueen Sandra, and thanks! 🙂 Stitch Fix is so fun. XOXO, Elif

  • El-The Beauty Isle

    I have a friend that really liked Stitch Fix too and I’ve been tempted. Great post!

    • Theboxqueen

      So happy you enjoyed the post 🙂 ( Sorry missed this comment before) You should try SF, it really is fun <3 Thanks for stopping by, XOXO, Elif

  • Bethany Blackmon

    Any chance you want to sell the 41 Hawthorn Madox Tribal Print dress you got in April 2014? 🙂

    • Theboxqueen

      Hi Bethany! I just saw this 🙁 I sold that dress a while ago but wish I could have answered you before. Hope you find/found the Tribal Print dress. Happy Tuesday! XOXO,Elif

  • Jody DesChenes

    oh, i’ve always loved Daniel Rainn Dakota and if i had a life where i wore more dressy tops, it would be mine! how big is your closet anyway? (; do you ever do purges? and if so, what do you do with your outgoing? (not that i want them, you’re tinier than me, just curious) (:

    • Theboxqueen

      Haha Jody just catching up with the comments that I missed for some reason in this post! Laughed out loud to the closet question :-)) SO many people ask me that. I would say it is mid-sized but packs a LOT. ( and a couple dressers too LOL) I do purges frequently. I usually do that on Facebook groups/ or send picks to ladies who directly ask me. 🙂 Have a lovely Tuesday dear. XOXO, Elif
