Stitch Fix 2 arrived a couple weeks ago and I am so excited to share what I received. Only my second Fix and I’m already loving this service. Find out what I kept and lessons learned!
Stitch Fix 2: What I Kept and Lessons Learned
Hi Y’all and Happy Friday! Depending on when you are reading this today, I’m either headed to port to board my cruise ship or I’m already living it up, headed to the Bahamas! We will be cruising until Monday, with our two besties. I’ll share as many pictures as I can!
Today, I’m sharing my favorites from Stitch Fix 2, plus a couple lessons learned/tips & tricks for you! If you remember from my last Fix, while enjoyed a few of the items, I ended up sending everything back. When I initially filled out my profile, I felt like I was pretty detailed in what I did and didn’t like. But, I filled out my profile again and switched up a few things. At the recommendation of an Instagram comment, I left pretty detailed reasons for why I returned all my items.
This is key: be as detailed as possible and make sure your style profile is up to date!
It worked, because I ended up keeping EVERYTHING in this fix. Now, when I pulled out 3 of the items, I wasn’t so sure they would work. I thought I got another not so great box. But Stitch Fix 2 had some great pieces, that looked amazing, once I tried them on.

Tip #2: try it on. Just because it looks ‘not cute’ when you unwrap it from the box, doesn’t mean it won’t look amazing. Case in point, these shorts.
Esmeralda Denim Short
I pulled these shorts out of the box and gave them a stink face. To me, the pattern was weird and they were long. We all know I have trouble fitting into shorts. Either they fit my waist and my legs look like sausages stuffed in casings OR they don’t make it up to my waist because they can’t fit over my thighs…and sometimes calves. I was AMAZED when I put these shorts on and:
- They looked pretty cute
- While they were tight, I didn’t have any extra thigh skin hanging out the bottom
The waist is a little low, but it’s manageable. I paired it with my new favorite tank from Old Navy with a little gap in the back. And, it was only $2. What what?! These shorts were a keeper!
Trish Button-Up Tank
Another piece I wasn’t so sure about when I first saw it. It was cute and I did request shirts for work. When I put on, The Husband, surprisingly, said YES right away. I love the pattern on top and the chunk of navy at the bottom. It has a slight razor back, which I LOVE! Love showing off my back and shoulders. I originally wore this with dark denim to work, shorts for a weekend outing and here, with light skinny jeans (to show off the navy bottom) and my FAVORITE Franco Sarto Gabriel Wedges. Simple, but classy. Keeper!
Ann Beaded Drop Earrings
While I ended up keeping these earrings, I gave them to my cousin as a birthday present. I received Stitch Fix 2 the day I chopped all my hair off again. Dangly earrings + short hair = not a good combination. While they were cute, I had a handful of people that I knew would like them just as much and wear them more. Keeper…but for a birthday present.
Bowie Solid Dolman Sleeve Top
I’ve wanted a Dolman shirt for a while now. The color is one of my favorites, so I figured this would be a solid choice from the get-go. It’s a bit see through, which I’m sure you can guess, The Husband enjoyed, so I added a spaghetti strap tank. It goes well with jeans, black capris and this Circle Lace White Skirt from LOFT (ps, it’s final sale and only $39!!) and the Frano heels. It’s airy and light for summer and I will likely layer with a cute jacket for fall. My one beef is that is does shed little pink fuzzes! Otherwise, keeper!
Amie Striped Belted Maxi Dress
Saved the best for last. This dress, y’all. I knew it was a keeper the moment I pulled it out of the box. It fits like a glove, in all the right places. The pattern is perfect, the scoop neckline shows off my collar bones and shoulders, while the back is a little lower, showing off my back muscles, again! My girls are not that big, but for some reason, they look nice and perky in this dress. The belt adds a little something extra and breaks up the pattern. Plus, there is a little thigh length thin lining in the dress too. I find that some of the Maxi dresses I try on tend to just lay over your body and show off certain areas that might not need as much attention. The lining this dress is super light and definitely helps the dress hug all the right spots. This dress makes me feel ah-ma-zing. Like, super confident and awesome. Keeper!
Thanks to The Hubs for being an awesome iPhone blog photographer. His skills are getting so much better. If you haven’t tried Stitch Fix yet, I totally recommend it. It’s only $20 for the styling fee. If you decide not to keep anything, you are only out $20. If you do keep everything, you receive 25% off your order and the styling fee gets applied to your order. There are options for every budget, which is one of things I love. I’m definitely willing to spend more on jeans, for example, and a little less on tops.
