I loved my April 2019 Stitch Fix so much that I asked for more of the same in my May 2019 fix. My last fix was packed with super cute business casual pieces. To my surprise, I found myself wanted more even though I don’t wear this type of clothing all that often. This fix didn’t quite impress me the same way, which might be a good thing for my wallet. I did still find something I love though!
As always, my stylist Chelsea, did a really great job trying to meet my requests. While this isn’t my favorite fix, I can see why she picked some of the items that she did.
Before I get into the full review of the items I received, let me tell you a bit about Stitch Fix and how it works. If you are already familiar with Stitch Fix, skip on through until you get to the May 2019 Stitch Fix Review heading.
What is Stitch Fix
If you already know what Stitch Fix is all about, go ahead and skip over this part. If you’re new to Stitch Fix, here is a brief summary of what you can expect.
Stitch Fix is a clothing subscription box. You can sign up to receive boxes on certain intervals, or just order a box whenever you want (this is the option I always choose so I don’t have to remember to cancel etc.). There are now women’s, men’s, and children’s Stitch Fix subscriptions available!
Each box you order will come with 5 items. These items are clothing, shoes, accessories, and jewelry. Stitch Fix now offers add-ons as well. These are items like camisoles, underwear, and bras that you can order in addition to your 5 items.
When you first sign up, you’ll fill out a style survey. Be brutally honest with this section! You’ll also have the opportunity to add any notes when you schedule your fix. I usually use this area to request certain items that I may have seen in other reviews or on Pinterest, or to request certain types of items. You definitely don’t want to skip this part. I find that being really detailed in the notes section helps to ensure that you get items that you will love!
After everything is filled out, choose the date you’d like to receive your fix.
How Much Does Stitch Fix Cost?
You pay a $20 styling fee that is credited towards anything you purchase. Shipping is free both ways. Buy what you love, return what you don’t. If you buy all 5 items, you’ll also get a 25% discount! And yes, if you don’t buy anything, the $20 fee is not refunded (as it goes towards the time to curate the items and their shipping costs). There has only ever been one time that I didn’t buy a single item.
The cost of the items varies. You can set your price ranges in your survey. Stitch Fix even carries designer brands now!
Now that that is out of the way, check out everything I got this month below!
May 2019 Stitch Fix Review
Tribal Maura Printed Straight Trouser ($58.00)
Seeing these pants while peeking at my fix, I was disappointed. The print is just way too much for me. I tried them on anyway, because you never really know until you try things on, but all that did was seal the deal. These are just not for me. Even my 11-year-old son was like “no.” Haha. I couldn’t keep them after that!
I was happy to see they were a size smaller than I usually get and fit perfectly. There’s the bright side.
Market & Spruce Bliss Mesh Detail Knit Maxi Dress ($78.00)
I was also disappointed to see this dress, but not because I don’t like it. I have a basic black maxi dress that I love already and just don’t see the need for two. I also didn’t love the way the elastic waist on this particular dress looked on me.
I would have returned this, but someone in a Stitch Fix Buy/Sell/Trade group wanted it without the discount, so I sold it to her instead.
Verdict: sold in a Facebook group
Emory Park Roxy Open Kimono ($34.00)
A kimono didn’t really fit what I was asking for (business casual), but I have a history of purchasing them and I’m sure they are super stocked on them since they are still so popular.
I didn’t want to love this, but I do. It’s a more casual design with little yellow flowers all over it. I can see easily pairing this with jeans and a tee or tank top for a cute casual summer look.
Sweet Grey Juni Mixed Material Top ($58.00)
This was the one piece that I thought for sure I was going to keep. I love the color and the style is similar to the top I received in my last fix. I can totally see why my stylist chose it.
Unfortunately the fabric isn’t as forgiving as last month’s top. It’s very thin and clingy. This top just did not look as flattering so I opted to not keep it.
Bancroft Kansas Drop Earrings ($28.00)
I’m pretty sure I have my Stitch Fix profile set to either never send jewelry or rarely. I could be wrong, but I haven’t received jewelry from them in ages so I just assume it’s set to not send.
These earrings are really cute and totally my style, but I just rarely wear earrings these days. I got out of the habit when my youngest son was born and was constantly grabbing at them and haven’t gotten back into the habit of wearing them. Basically all my old earrings are like new again. For that reason, I decided to not keep these either.
Final Thoughts on My May 2019 Stitch Fix Items
Overall, I can see why my stylist chose the items that she did in this fix. It’s not quite what I was looking for, but I did find one cute item so I can’t complain.
The total for all of the items in this fix is $256.00 which is a little lower than most of my fixes have been. The 25% discount for buying all 5 items is $64.00 which would have brought the total to $192.00 had I bought the entire fix. Instead, I just paid $34.00 for the kimono.
I have yet to schedule my next fix, but plan to ask for summer clothes.
