June’s boss is a Stitch

When the mailroom guy brought up my boss’s Stitch Fix box yesterday, I said, “Oh, this is so exciting! She gets her Stitch Fix, see, then all the people who read me vote on what she should keep or return!”

His look was priceless. Like, everything in that entire sentence was a “?” to him. Men think we’re weird.

Anyway, if you just got here, my boss gets a subscription called Stitch Fix. Every month they send her clothes, and she has the option to buy them all or buy some of them or return the whole dang thing in disgust.

Fortunately, we, the viewing audience, are able to scream at her and tell her what to do with her clothes, which if you ask me makes perfect sense. Let’s begin.

Lace detail blouse, $68
Faux knit wrap dress, $78
Teardrop earrings, $28

I had photos of her NOT shutting her eyes, but this captures The Joy of Boss. I like it.

Black boyfriend sweater, $58

Keep in mind that if she buys all of them she gets some sort of discount, and if she returns all of them she’s out $20. You pay $20 every month for this subscription, and if you order anything you get that $20 toward your purchase. Also, I keep typing 420 and not $20 and am on own nerves.

Vote now! She’ll make her pressing clothing (bah) decision this weekend.

And now I have to go because the cat is meowing desperately and I know he’s got himself trapped somewhere, a thing you might find alarming but that happens about 20 times a month, so.

A poll-ing-ly,
June

  1. Not my favorite box of choices. I’d happily go shopping for someone for $20 a shipment. Easiest money, ever. I seriously should’ve been a professional shopper. I love to spend other people’s money.

  2. I’ve been ordering Stitch Fix boxes for years and I have COVETED that white top forevah! There seems to be a bit of controversy in the comments about that top. The photo doesn’t help highlight the positives because the top is wrinkled, and it just came out of the box. I think it has excellent potential for Boss! If she had tried it on at home she likely would have put on some darling jeans, tucked it in a bit in the front and put on cute sandals. Adorable!
    I find Feb/Mar to be the worst time for Stitch Fix.
    Thanks for the fun post! I admire Boss for letting us outfit her by committee.

  3. Well, good gravy, I had no idea there were prices. Just like at the store, I never notice the price tags and am always shocked. I voted yes on everything except the sweater that just hung there. Did not love the sweater. And yes, I am sure she could find a less expensive version of some of those things, but then she has to schlep to the store and stand in those dressing rooms with the bad lighting and feel awful about herself, which I assume is the reason she is stitch fixing and NOT wanting to do that crap.

    Thank you , Boss of June for doing this and I hope you let us know which items you like and keep. That way we have an idea of the things you like for the next voting!

  4. I have to say that Stitch Fix has not impressive me with their choices at all! Boss should take you shopping with her and forget this mess.

  5. I think the black sweater would be cute with jean pants but not with a skirt.

    The lace blouse makes boss’s hoots look…. lumpy or something.

  6. My daughter sent back EVERYTHING this month in her StitchFix – all of it was horrible. What’s the deal SF??

    I liked the wrap dress and the earrings – I would have liked to have seen the skirt without the sweater over it, but I said yes to the skirt because it could come in handy some time.

    I wish I had some friendly female coworkers to talk about clothes and such with. I work with all men – it sucks.

  7. So funny I went with what I thought looked good on her and didn’t even glance at the prices. Every time my vote was with the majority. Yay conformity! I’m part of the crowd!

  8. oh I think most of this is so awful! Earrings I said yes – she would at least get a little value for her $20. I think this gal is gorgeous – has a beautiful smile and seems pretty “with it” (is that old fashioned? lol) I think she should go to local stores and find flattering things…. She will do much better than buying any of this overpriced stuff! Not a fan of stitch fix!

  9. I actually voted for all, didn’t look at the prices. OK, I looked at the prices. The black cardigan is a year ’rounder for me, so maybe keep that one, unless it has a lot of poly.

    You all are into spring already, and we’re getting *another* snow event this weekend. Gee, only 6-10″ yet again. Hard to be excited about spring fashion, when it’s never going to get here.

    • Let me help you out: it is not flattering – it makes her look wide all the way down and I think it’s because she is busty. Also, no way should someone pay $68 for a blouse like that She could get the same one at Marshall’s or TJ Maxx, or even Macy’s for $25 or less!

  10. I wonder if next time you could take a picture of what she is wearing that day , so we can get a sense of her usual.
    I think I remember some of her outfits before in just regular photos and she isn’t a bright color person.

  11. Tell your boss thanks for letting us play along. The only thing in the box that was truly appropriate for upcoming warm weather was the white blouse. One presumes that Stitch Fix is trying to sell as much of their winter inventory as possible.

  12. I voted Yes on the blouse, but that was before looking at the price. I want to change my vote to No. I think everything is overpriced.

  13. I would only keep the earrings because they end up only costing $8 with the $20 fee credit.
    If they’re not her style she could save for a gift to someone else.

  14. It’s because of Joob and her boss that I, too, get a monthly Fix (which I first typed as “Fux” and why don’t I use THAT more often). In my first box, I kept two things and since then it’s been “meh”. Color seems to be an issue. Joob’s Boss is a sport to put up with our nonsense.

  15. I’m undecided about the sweater. If she loves it, it might be worthwhile. I’ve bought expensive sweaters and I’ve bought sweaters from Walmart and they both pill at the same rate. But I’m just that way with clothes. I thought the skirt was too short. Love the dress on her. I like that she does this for us!

  16. I loved the wrap dress and skirt but then reading everyone’s comments, I’m thinking they are right! It is kind of blah box for the start of SPRING! I think those two pieces are really great for work year round but the prices would be the determining factor for me!

  17. I liked the skirt and the dress, everything else was unflattering i think. Oh, i also like the earrings. I had to pause my stitch fix, i was buying everything and it was getting too expensive. I’ve decided to only get clothes from them, the jewelry is cute but wasaay overpriced for what it is.

  18. I agree, I didn’t think any of the items were great, the first top would be comfortable for summer, but not worth the cost. The dress wasn’t a good color for cute boss. The skirt was okay just not with the boy sweater.

    Cute boss is very brave modeling for us.

    • Thanks for the Atlanta/Savannah input Tee. We are planning on going to Tybee Island. I am hoping to do Savannah Friday night and all day Saturday and Tybee on Sunday, depending on the weather of course. We are hoping to do Mrs. Wilkes’ Dining Room on Monday, our flight home is at 6:15 out of Atlanta so I am hoping that leaving Savannah by 1 PM will give us enough time to return the car and make our flight???

      • DG, you might want to give yourself more time, traffic northbound I-75 at westbound I-285 can be backed up several miles. I would be a nervous wreck, THEN you have to get through the security checkpoint. How far in advance do you need to be at the gate? I’m thinking 45 minutes. Just note the amount of time it takes you to drive to Savannah and add at least an hour to return your rental car and get to your terminal. Have you ever rented a car out of Atlanta Airport? It is like a huge city adjacent to the airport.

        You are going to really enjoy Savannah.

        • It is not uncommon for trucks (18-wheeler) to turnover on the ramp from I-75N to I-285W because it’s almost a U-turn. Remember Atlanta traffic is always heavy.

          • Thanks again Tee, I have heard about the crazy Atlanta traffic but I was hoping the airport was on the outskirts and the traffic wouldn’t be so bad.

        • Thanks Tee, that sounds like a good plan. I really want to go to Mrs. Wilkes, but it isn’t open on the weekends and they don’t open until 11 but we plan to go and line up by 10 AM…. So I am thinking we will be done by 12:30 or 1… BUT we will skip it if it turns out the drive will take longer. I would say I would like to be at the gate by 5:30 so need to return the car by 4:30. I have never rented from Atlanta, just had many layovers there in the past.

  19. It’s late winter and they send a blah box? Where’s the color to get you excited for spring? The earrings were ok (I’d probably just splurge and buy some locally instead of those, though). The dress was ok but probably not at Stitch Fix’s price.
