Who's ready for another Stitch Fix reveal? I'm really excited to share the 5 items from my third Stitch Fix box. For this one, I asked my stylist, Stephanie, to send me a blue cardigan, a blue skirt, a red skirt, a white blouse, and a scarf. Scroll down to see what she chose for my July box.
Before I show you this month's outfits, let's learn a little about Stitch Fix.

Stitch Fix is a subscription box service that styles personalized outfits for you and sends you the items to try on and purchase if you like them. Before you get your first Fix, you’ll answer some questions about your style and size to ensure the best fit. Also, you can request certain items (i.e. shoes, blouses, jeans, etc.) or leave it a mystery. The stylist encloses a personal note with each one of your Fixes.
Another item you receive with is style cards. They suggest different ways to pair the items with other clothes that you may already own.
Stitch Fix is a great service for busy ladies or those who want a professional stylist’s advice. You get to try on all of the clothes at home, where you can mix and match the pieces with clothing and accessories you already own. That’s an awesome bonus. Family and friends can see you wearing the clothes and give you their opinion to help you make the final decision.
Stitch Fix will mail you 5 items per box. If you want to keep any of the items, you’ll pay for them online; if not, just seal them up in the pre-paid envelope and mail them back.
Out of all the clothing boxes I’ve seen online, Stitch Fix is one of the most reasonably priced! You are charged a $20 styling fee. If you keep any items, the styling fee is credited toward the cost of the items. If you don’t keep anything, you only have to pay $20. It’s a fun and easy way to expand your wardrobe and look more stylish without having to go shopping!
Treat Yourself to Some Exciting New Clothes!
Are you doubtful about trying this out? It’s a fun way to get new clothes without spending hours of frustration at the mall or scrolling through confusing online stores. Getting a professional stylist to custom select pieces for your wardrobe is such a great experience.
Here’s a perk for the enterprising ladies out there! If you refer a friend or family member to Stitch Fix and they order a box, you both get $25 off your next one. It would make an awesome girls’ night if you and your best friend ordered boxes and opened them at the same time!

In my second Fix, my style cards showed some beautiful items that were paired with ones in my box. I requested that my stylist send me the red-and-white faux wrap skirt and a flowy blue cardigan from the style cards. Unfortunately, my stylist (Stephanie, third time in a row) wasn't able to find the exact items I requested, but she did an amazing job of finding similar items.
I also requested a navy blue or denim pencil skirt, a white T-shirt or blouse to wear with the red skirt, and a scarf. Stephanie sent me a beautiful gray knit dress instead of the scarf, but that was okay. (It did not have had a scarf in stock that coordinated with my style or color choices.) Scroll down to the reveal and try-on to see the surprise gray dress!
Keep scrolling for the exciting reveal and try-on!
Margaret M - Deandra Textured Skirt
The first item I tried on was this lovely Deandra Textured Skirt from Margaret M, an exclusive Stitch Fix brand ($68; $51 with buy all items discount). The jacquard fabric is 76% rayon, 21% nylon, and 3% spandex.
Pros: I really loved the length of this A-line skirt and how professional it looked. It didn't have any buttons or zippers, so it was quick and easy to pull on. The two darts in the back gave the skirt a bit of a tailored feel, and the thick fabric had a nice weight to it and was wrinkle resistant. The color was neutral, and would coordinate with a lot of different tops.
Cons: My main gripe about this skirt is the price. There really wasn't a lot of fabric or other features that justified the $68 price tag. The skirt didn't have a zipper, elastic or lining. Also, I wouldn't wear it as much because it's more business casual. Since I only get one item from each box, I need to be picky about which one I like best!
Outfit Details: I paired this skirt with a flesh colored cami, lace tank, and white lacy blouse (all from Aeropostale). The white wedge Patrizia sandals are called Fern (purchased from Rack Room Shoes), and the necklace and earrings were handmade by me several years ago.
Hazel - Almore Lace Detail Top
Next, I tried on this Almore Lace Detail Top by Hazel ($40; $30 with buy all items discount). The fabric was 51% rayon and 49% nylon.
Pros: By far, my favorite part of this blouse is the lace trim around the armholes and hem. It really added a nice touch of casual elegance. The peplum style was pretty, and the shade of white wasn't too bright for my skin tone.
Cons: Unfortunately, this blouse had a lot of cons! The fabric was SUPER wrinkled when the blouse arrived, and even after ironing and steaming it, the blouse still wasn't as smooth as I would have liked. The fit of the top made me feel a bit too chunky. The fabric was extremely see through, the neckline wasn't flattering, and the armholes were way too large. Definitely not my favorite item.
Outfit Details: I wore this blouse with a flesh colored cami, lace tank, and dark blue skinny jeans from Aeropostale. I completed the look with handmade jewelry and my Diba Kyra suede heels from Stitch Fix.
Nine Britton - Kate Hacci Knit Dress
I was excited to put on this Kate Hacci Knit Dress by Nine Britton ($44; $33 with buy all items discount). The fabric was 81% polyester, 15% rayon, and 4% spandex.
Pros: The shade of gray, you guys, was so pretty! The fabric was super soft and comfortable, and the three quarter length sleeves were a nice length for early fall wear. The cross straps on the neckline and the pockets added some lovely detail. Overall, I was thrilled with this gorgeous sweater dress!
Cons: The length of the skirt was obviously too short to wear without leggings underneath, but I liked the look of it with the leggings and suede black boots. As much as I love this dress, it just isn't a summer outfit; I wouldn't be able to wear this dress until mid to late October here in south coastal Georgia. I didn't want to wait three months to wear it!
Outfit Details: This dress is paired with a flesh colored cami, white T-shirt, and black leggings from Aeropostale. The Franco Fortini black ankle boots are called Chesney and were purchased from Rack Room Shoes in the fall of 2018. All the jewelry is handmade by me.
Renee C - Avril Maxi Skirt
Next up was this Avril Maxi Skirt by Renee C ($48; $36 with buy all items discount). The fabric was 96% rayon and 4% spandex.
Pros: The red and white print was patriotic and colorful--perfect for summertime. The fabric was comfortably stretchy and flowy. I loved the ruching at the sideseams on the yoke. This skirt would be great for wearing outdoors on a hot day.
Cons: I wasn't totally in love with the print; it only looked good from a distance. Also, I just bought a navy blue maxi skirt a few weeks ago, and probably wouldn't wear this one as often as it is a bit more dressy.
Outfit Details: I wore this skirt with the Almore Lace Detail Top by Hazel, which was one of the items from this box. Underneath, I wore a flesh colored cami and lace tank from Aeropostale. The shoes were from Aldo, and the jewelry was handmade.
Cotton Emporium - Marybeth Waterfall Brushed Knit Cardigan
Last of all is this Marybeth Waterfall Brushed Knit Cardigan by Cotton Emporium ($38; $28.50 with buy all items discount). The fabric was 69% rayon, 27% polyester, and 4% spandex.
Pros: Out of all the items in my July 2019 box, this cardigan fit the best with my personal style. I fell in love with the color, the soft fabric, and the pretty hemline. It would look great paired with a scarf, jeans, or a skirt. It's just the right weight to wear in a cold, air-conditioned room during the summertime, or on my upcoming vacation to Canada. In case you're wondering, the sleeves are full length. I just have them pushed up, so they look like a three quarter length sleeve.
Cons: Not many problems with this cardigan! The only thing that might be a problem is that the fabric looks like it could snag on rough or sharp objects. That's a common issue with any knit clothing, though. I'll just have to be extra careful.
Outfit Details: I paired this top with a flesh colored cami, navy blue pocket tee, and medium blue skinny jeans all from Aeropostale. I wore my favorite Adidas socks and denim blue Converse sneakers. The necklace and earrings are also from Aeropostale. The red and white tote is from Roots (a Canadian clothing store), and the white sunglasses are from Children's Place. (Yes, they're my youngest sister's sunglasses.)
What I Kept
Here's the rundown on what I received in my second box:
- Deandra Textured Skirt from Margaret M ($68; $51 with buy all items discount), return
- Almore Lace Detail Top from Hazel ($40; $30 with buy all items discount), return
- Kate Hacci Knit Dress from Nine Britton ($44; $33 with buy all items discount), return
- Avril Maxi Skirt from Renee C ($48; $36 with buy all items discount), return
- Marybeth Waterfall Brushed Knit Cardigan from Cotton Emporium ($38; $28.50 with buy all items discount), keep
If I bought all 5 items, I'd receive a 25% discount on each item. That's what the "buy all items discount" means. If you really like 3 or 4 of the items, it sometimes can be cheaper to buy all 5 to get the discount. You can always sell your least favorite item at a local consignment store or on Poshmark or Ebay.
My aim with each box is to keep my favorite item out of the five. I want to be budget conscious, plus pick what's most flattering, versatile, and timeless so I can enjoy wearing it for more than one year.
