Poppa said that he thought I should try out a summer Stitch Fix. I decided he was right so for the first time during the summer season, I ordered one. (All Stitch Fix links use my referral code!) Stitch Fix is a company that provides you with your own personal stylist. Your stylist will send to your home 5 items in each shipment for you to try out. You keep what you like and send back what you don't want. More details are at the bottom of this post!
For this fix, I asked for tops that I could wear out to dinner and to church. Here's what Addie sent to me:
2. RENEE C Loni Keyhole Back Top~ $44
3. MARKET & SPRUCE Eldridge Lasercut Blouse ~$64
4. PAPERMOON Marisol Mixed Material Knit Top~Navy $34
5. Q&A Kely Tie Neck Halter Blouse~$48
I love the lace at the bottom of the white blouse and the over the shoulder cut was perfect for me. I liked the high low style of the patterned top. I liked the color of the lavender shirt. I almost kept the polka dot and navy one, but I talked myself out of it. The tie neck was an interesting detail in the halter top.
I didn't find anything to keep this time although the white blouse and the mixed media navy top came close. The fit was off this time in most of them or they felt uncomfortable on. Some of them were just too over sized or the patterns just don't suit my tastes. I tend toward more of a classic style with subtle patterns and solid colors. What I really liked most in this fix was all of the style details. I'm a sucker for lace especially. I think the small details are lovely.

Here are more details about how it works...
In case you have never heard about Stitch Fix, it is a company that provides you with a personal stylist for a fee of $20 for every shipment called a fix. In each fix, you will be provided with 5 items. You try the items on in the privacy of your own home, with your entire closet right there. After 3 days, you drop the items that you want to return into the provided envelope (no shipping charges applied) and give the bag to your postal carrier or drop it off at your post office. Then you go online and checkout, listing what you are keeping and what you aren't. If you choose anything from the fix, your $20 styling fee is applied to the clothing. If you choose to keep all 5 items, you get 25% off your entire fix.
To start a Stitch Fix profile, You go to their website and make an account. This is free and you should totally do it even if you aren't ready to schedule a fix. It goes through your sizes, preferences, samples of clothing styles, color interests, price points, and lots more. There's even a box to add additional information. Another great thing to do is build a fashion board on pinterest. Pin things that you really love to your pinterest board. That gives your stylist a wonderful idea of what you are looking for and what you really like. If you see anything in a Stitch Fix review that you really like, pin those. Pin mine away, if there is something you like here too! You can click on the box below to see my board.
When you are ready, you schedule a fix. You can receive a fix every 2-3 weeks, every month, every other month, every three months, or as you want to schedule them. Once you schedule a fix, you make a note to your stylist. In your note, you let your stylist know what you are looking for...like pieces for a special event or a hole in your wardrobe.
