I scheduled my latest fix to come at the beginning of August knowing that we have our Destin beach vacation coming at the end of the month. When we unexpectedly ended up coming to Phoenix, I changed my shipping address and updated my note to my stylist to say that I just wanted something that made me feel pretty and special.
I was so excited when I got my notification that my fix had shipped and instantly went to my Stitch Fix app to peek at what was coming in my box. As soon as I looked my heart sank because I knew 1000% that my stylist, Nicole, hadn’t styled it. She has been killing my last few boxes and this one…..was clearly not from her.
I messaged her on Instagram just to double check and sure enough, she had been on vacation when my box came through! Wah!! She suggested that I give it a chance first, but if it was really terrible to contact customer service.
So, here is my latest fix!
Okay, so first of all, since my stylist mentioned that she sent me some styles to keep me “cool, confident, and comfortable” through the summer I have to say I was a little confused to see jeans, a navy dolman, and a long sleeved shirt in this fix.
Honestly, I actually did like the fit of the jeans(though not the price. Oof!) but I won’t be wearing jeans until like….October. So they definitely didn’t need to be in this box.
As far as the tank, I kept a 41hawthorn top back in Stitch Fix box #10 that looked almost exactly like this. Like….totally the same. I don’t need two of the same looking top in my closet, so back it goes.
I love, love, love dolman tops. I really do. So this *could* have been a win. Except, I already have a blue dolman AND horizontal stripes? Well, that ain’t doing me any favors now is it? Back it goes!
You guys. This shirt. The Seinfeld puffy shirt is all I could see.
I tried it on and it got even worse. Just nopppppppe.
Like, if I could think of the most polar opposite of anything Courtney would ever wear in the history of ever….it would likely be this shirt.
The one redeeming piece in this entire fix! I LOVED the floral. The fit of the skirt was perfect and I love how it looks in these pictures. But honestly, I wasn’t thrilled with the fabric(it was this super stretchy material) and I really couldn’t think of anything in my closet back home that I could wear with it. So, I pondered it for a minute but really couldn’t find a way to make it work.
So for the first time EVER(and I’ve had 2 0/5 fixes in the past) I emailed customer service. I let them know how much I had been looking forward to receiving a box from MY stylist and how disappointed I was that 1) I had a substitute stylist and 2) how I didn’t want to keep anything from my box. Stitch Fix customer service replied within MINUTES and let me know that they scheduled a new box for me with Nicole and that they would waive my next $20 styling fee.
So, as I’ve said before, Stitch Fix is an amazing service that I just love. Be on the lookout for another Stitch Fix review in a few weeks with my new box! And if you want to try Stitch Fix for yourself, use my referral link HERE!
