Stitch Fix Box May 2016 box

Stitch Fix is a personal styling subscription box. Your stylist will send you 5 pieces based on your profile for you to try on at home and hopefully fall in love with. There are no coupons for Stitch Fix but if you hit the jackpot and keep everything, you save 25% on your whole fix (read below for details).

Everything always comes wrapped so neatly!  It makes it really fun to open!

Every box includes a set of styling cards with suggestions on how to wear the particular item. There’s usually a dressed up (right) and dressed down (left) version for each piece of clothing. I do wish these cards were accessible in your Stitch Fix profile. If you email them they’ll send them via PDF. Stitch Fix customer service has been super helpful lately!  I also find the styling cards very helpful. I am not a naturally good-at-fashion person and these help a LOT. Even if I don’t keep the pieces I use them as inspiration – like my own personal fashion editor!

Here’s how Stitch Fix works: fill out your style profile! This includes style, budget, what you’re looking for, and you can get as detailed as you want with the notes to your stylist. It really really does help to provide notes to what you’re seeking, and a Pinterest board if you have one!

You will also receive a separate paper with a list of your items. You’ll be charged a $20 styling fee and shipped five items to try on at home. If you keep anything your styling fee will be applied to your order, but if you don’t, you will pay the $20 fee. This is so worth it. If you keep everything you get a 25% discount, so it pays off to be specific. You will check out and get charged through your Stitch Fix account. Return the pieces you don’t want in the prepaid mailer (free shipping!).

Stitch Fix Box May 2016 review

Everything in my fix for May. The colors and styling made me super happy this month!

Gilli Janice Printed Maxi Skirt ($58) I love this!!! Perfect fabric, beautiful gorgeous print that coordinates with the purse, great length! I was really excited about this one – and it’s no wrinkle!

Brixon Ivy Linda Dress ($68) Oh let me tell you how happy I was that there was a perspective to the styling in my box! Everything matched and even if I don’t keep everything it gave me a pretty good idea of style trends right now! This is a cute spring/summer dress, and it’s lined, too. Perfect and bra-friendly style.

Market & Spruce Elaine Ikat Print Pocket-Front Knit Shirt ($44) I liked the pattern on this shirt, but to be honest, it felt like more of a nightshirt than something I’d wear in public.

Market & Spruce Melrose French Terry Knit Top ($54) I didn’t expect to like this shirt, but it looked great on, even my husband said must keep.

IMG_9630I loved the detail on the collar.  Apparently my choices tell Stitch Fix I love tops with embellishments (I don’t think it’s on my profile). The more fixes you get, the more data they you have on you, it’s all sort of magic.

Shiraleah Jesse Crossbody Bag ($48) Oooh! I love getting handbags in my Stitch Fix box! They are always sturdy but relatively inexpensive (but not cheap) and super cute!

Stitch Fix Box May 2016 (10) This bag can be used with or without strap – if you’re using it as a pouch, a wristlet attachment is included.

Great length! I was thrilled with my May Stitch Fix! This month I felt that my stylist took my preferences into account while curating a box of on-trend spring choices (last month didn’t feel that way at all!). This was a really great way to start off the month of May and infuse some color into my wardrobe!
