Stitch Fix Unboxing + Try On | May 2019
After having 2 “dud” Stitch Fix boxes the past couple of months, I was thoroughly impressed with my May subscription box!
Since I didn’t like some of my previous Stitch Fix boxes, I left very specific feedback in hopes of improving the types of items for future boxes.
I’m so glad I did because they emailed right back and suggested I create a Stitch Fix Pinterest board of clothing I like and then link that board to my Stitch Fix account.
I also went through and updated my preferences in my Stitch Fix account and wrote a very detailed note to my stylist about how I’m looking for fun, brightly colored clothes to wear for a Mom’s weekend in SoCal.
All the legwork paid off and I’m stoked to show you what was inside this month’s Stitch Fix box! And don’t forget that if you sign up using my link, you’ll get $25 off your first Stitch Fix box!

WEST KEI | JULIANNA CUFFED SLEEVE TIE FRONT BLOUSE
When I originally held up this blouse, I thought it looked ginormous!
But, then I saw the ties and realized it could create a nice cinched waist. But, I wasn’t sure if it tied in the front or the back.
So, I cheated and looked at the style guide that was in my Stitch Fix box and saw it was modeled with the shirt tied in front.
Retail Price: $44.00
What I Liked about this West Key Front Tie Blouse:
It felt very professional. This would be cute to wear to a conference with cropped pants and wedges.
It’s super versatile and I really wanted to love it.
What I Didn’t Like about this West Key Front Tie Blouse:
I’m not a fan of crepe fabric. It just feels weird to me.
I also don’t like things that tie in front of my stomach. It looks bulky and makes the silhouette look off to me.
FINAL VERDICT: Return
WEST KEI | KENDRAH TIE DETAIL BLOUSE
This is another blouse from West Kei with a different take on the tie detail.
My son LOVED this shirt because of all the leaves and he thought it was super beautiful. I had high hopes for this shirt and really wanted to like it as much as he did.
Retail Price: $44.00
What I Liked about this West Kei Tropical Print Shirt:
I thought the print was really nice. I’m all about bold, tropical prints and I don’t have anything like this yet.
The fabric felt really nice and it was very comfortable to wear.
What I Didn’t Like about this West Kei Tropical Print Shirt:
I hated the tie in front. It left a peep hole that showed my stomach near my belly button. It just felt awkward.
And it was a bit wide.
FINAL VERDICT: Return
EMORY PARK | CALEY OPEN KIMONO
Actually, this was the first thing I saw when I did my Stitch Fix unboxing. The color really jumped out at me and I couldn’t wait to try it on.
I’ve been trying to add a kimono top into my wardrobe because it’s a nice piece to layer and instantly change up an otherwise boring outfit.
This one is nice because there are slits on the side.
Retail Price: $34.00
What I Liked about this Emory Park Floral Kimono:
I love this shade of red! I don’t feel like I can pull off all shades of red with my complexion (and obsession with pink lipstick) but this one has a blue undertone.
It’s really lightweight and wispy and it’s a quick and easy way to elevate my usual t-shirt and jeans look.
Plus, I think I could even use it as a beach cover-up when I travel to save on suitcase space.
What I Didn’t Like about this Emory Park Floral Kimono:
My son didn’t like the flowers on it, but I think they provide a nice contrast to the red. I almost wish it were a tad longer.
FINAL VERDICT: Keep
LOVEAPPELLA | TORRI KNIT MAXI DRESS
I’m SO into yellow this season! I used to avoid it like the plague because I thought I couldn’t pull the color off.
But, I’m realizing how happy I get when I see a pop of yellow. So, I’m throwing caution to the wind and incorporating a lot more yellow into my wardrobe this Spring and Summer.
Retail Price: $78.00
What I Liked about this LoveApella Floral Maxi Dress:
I love the bold yellow color! It’s super soft and stretchy in all the right ways!
This maxi dress photographs pretty well and because the fabric is thick, I could wear it for Spring, Summer and Fall.
What I Didn’t Like about this LoveApella Floral Maxi Dress:
I’m not sure about the actual print when I look at it up close. And the fluttery sleeves might feel weird when I put a jacket on.
It kind of reminds me of some maternity/nursing dresses I owned (because of the wrap neckline) but it definitely doesn’t look maternity when I wear it.
FINAL VERDICT: Return (although I really had to think about it!)
SKIES ARE BLUE | JAELYNN LATTICE DETAIL JUMPSUIT
I totally saved the best for last!
I currently only own one jumpsuit and it’s too formal to wear for most occasions. But, I’ve been secretly searching for an awesome jumpsuit that I could wear at home or for travel.
This one made my heart leap a little!
Retail Price: $74.00
What I Liked about this Skies are Blue Floral Jumpsuit:
I’m in love with the bright blue base color of this jumpsuit! And the pinkish orange flowers really pop!
The fit is perfect for my body shape and it’s definitely something I would have picked up if I saw it in person at a store.
This piece is going to work well for my trip to California and I know I’ll be able to wear it on our upcoming Caribbean cruise as well as for summer date nights in Seattle.
What I Didn’t Like about this Skies are Blue Floral Jumpsuit:
Nothing! It’s just what I’ve been looking for!
FINAL VERDICT: Keep!
While I didn’t end up purchasing the entire Stitch Fix box, I did find some items I really liked. And I know that my new stylist Jennifer is starting to understand what I’m looking for.
In her note to me, she even said she also has a long torso, so she specifically pulled items that will compliment that. And she sounded excited to hear what I thought about each piece.
Next month, I’m heading to Knott’s Berry Farm and Disneyland with my 5 year old, so I’m looking for fun clothing that will look good and be comfortable to wear all day long. Wish me luck!
