Vote on June’s Stitch Fix

I’ve decided I’ve been phoning in my appearance, with the lack of Botox and fillers, and my dumb hair, and especially with my clothes. Hello, same things year after year. So I revamped my Stitch Fix (SF) membership, a thing you should be familiar with as we usually delight in voting on the SF outfits that come to my boss. But she has put her SF membership on hold so it’s up to me to take the reins, apparently.

These and other horse refs hoofing your way as I welcome you to the “Yay or Neigh on June’s Stitch Fix Roundup.”

If you AREN’T familiar, SF is a subscription service where they send you clothes and you decide to keep them or return them in a huff. You can help me decide on that, right here in this blog.

The advantage my boss had is that (a) she gets to be my boss WHAT A REWARD and (2), she had me to photograph her when her SF box came to the office. Seeing as I live alone, except for with pets and they have no thumbs, I had to improvise by placing my phone on my kitten scale, then setting the timer.

Here is a photo of me before I tried everything on, in my regular outfit, so we have some idea who we’re dealing with. The silhouette we have, so to speak.

Kidding. But her hair is magnificent.

Do you find it sad that I posed like a mannequin alone in my kitchen in front of my kitten scale? That’s because you don’t know the meaning of fun.

All right. Here’s our first item up for judgement. Please keep in mind I requested everything be machine washable.

This is the Whitley Striped Open Cardigan. Here it is from the back.

You see that I began putting away all my Christmas cards and then lost interest, a trait my old college roommate Sandy can tell you dates back to at least 1989.

Let’s vote!

Next up, another sweater! Will the unpredictability ever end?

I know this looks like a careful art pose but really I noticed that counter needed wiping.

Just to shake things up a tad, let’s get into my jeans. I’ve NO idea what these poses are meant to do.

I guess I didn’t step far enough away from the camera, but they go all the way down to the ankle. In case that affects your decision-making. [From the movie Arthur. Burt: “I never drink. I think drinking affects your decision-making.” Arthur: “You may be right. I can’t decide.”]

Let’s move on to a pink top that we will assume won’t normally be worn with my black bra.

I think really the best part of me are my yes-or-no lines on these polls. I was born to write these.

Finally, they sent me a purse. I’m pretending to hail a cab, what with all the cab hailing I do here in Greensboro. You can also see the jeans again.

Here are its guts.

Please vote at some point before tomorrow morning when I have to send these items back or keep them forever like my grandmother’s dance card.

Thank you for your participation in this pressing matter. Thanks for fixing my stitch.

I love this thread,
June

  1. You looked great in everything, but I just didn’t like the items – too trendy and I wasn’t convinced they were good quality. And pricey!

  2. The vote on the pink sweater is a travesty. I say this as a hetero female but the wrap on that makes your ass look like straight 🔥.

    I demand a recount.

  3. Those clothes are pricey, or is it just me? They look good on you but I wasn’t crazy about the jeans. And the purse although I like it, you can get a nicer one for that price. This was fun.

  4. This was fun! Love voting for your clothes. I did Stitch Fit for a bit, kept a couple things, mostly accessories, I’m cheap though, so most of the clothes I sent back. I AM interested in jeans if they are as good as a lot of you suggest!!

  5. I’m curious to know if the things they sent truly are machine-washable. I did Stitch Fix a few years ago and most of the things they sent were hand wash even though I said only machine wash.

  6. Thanks for letting us vote. I am one of the few that didn’t care for the jeans. Loved the cardigan but not the blocked sweater. It’s strange how our opinions differ. I totally missed the prices though. That was fun!

  7. This is a lot of fun. The majority agreed with my opinions which made me feel good, something I care little about personally but my body is harder to work with. I like living vicariously through you and yours. I liked the blush sweater but it’s way too big on you. You do need clothes that color. I really enjoy that subdued pink. Things look so good on your work out reward body, especially those jeans. You must have them!

    1. I opened the post at work earlier and then had to close the page to take a call (stupid work getting in the way of my internet time). So I probably showed as one of those that didn’t vote. I have now, though.

  10. Now that I voted on everything, I’ll wear my “I voted” sticker I get at the polls. My favorite is your own black outfit. I didn’t even see the price so only voted based on what I thought looked flattering. Sorry, but I don’t think the color-block or pink top’s shape or thin material do anything for you and the purse’s size is overwhelming. All I’d see is a walking purse. These are my opinions so you can ignore them at will.

  11. This was fun! I voted no on the color block sweater and purse only because I thought they were too expensive. You could totally find similar for like, $16.99 at TJ Maxx. But every item looks good on you!!!

  12. ‘Jordache’. Genuis. I probably said yes to too much. To clarify, I liked the pink sweater from the rear angle. I think my only objection to the front is the weird pose- hard to get an idea of how it would actually look cause I am guessing you don’t stand like that often. Plus the black bra was distracting. I HATE open cardigans. I need a closure so I don’t feel the need to hold it closed. If you like thst sort of thing- well it looked good. I am with the other commenter who asked if the jeans were comfy. The block sweater looked nice. Purse- too big for you. I did not take price into consideration because I figure if you are asking us, then you are willing to pay thise prices. I am a sale shopper to the extreme, so I would not pay full price for that stuff.

    Loved your descriptive voting lines!

          1. yep, i figured that out as well.
            I do like these polls because I like seeing you in different clothes for a vote.
            You are a hoot. I am not at all complaining…just on the dumb side today.
            You do your thing, I will try to do mine.
            I enjoy whatever you decide to do , because I like your style.
            I think we all do or we wouldn’t be here. Be patient with us and don’t give up.

      1. I was just away on a well needed vacation and a bit spendy. A lot of stuff was on sale but not everything. (I bought some last minute gifts too). I am therefore not judging the spending. I judged on how they looked on your new, rocking body alone.

  18. You absolutely WERE meant to write those Yes/No lines. They were the best part of the whole post. I wish we could do this every week.

  19. You are the only Stitch Fix I need June. I laughed at every single yes/no line.

    I voted strictly along the lines of what looked good, ignoring cost. I’m cheap. The only one I didn’t like was the block sweater – just too meh. The pink is a great color for you. The jeans look great, but how do they feel? I’m more about “can I feel my legs or is the waist cutting off circulation to the bottom half of my body?” If they don’t feel good to wear all day, I don’t care how they look. The purse is pretty, but are you a big purse girl? I ditched the big purses a few years ago and just carry a small crossover bag. I realized I would never need to actually live out of my purse so why was I carrying so much junk around every day?

    Anyway! Thanks for letting us chime in! It was harder than it seams. I’ll stop there… I’m running out of good material.

    Lovely post lovely June!

  20. Good gravy now I have to go back and look at the prices. I only voted on the look not the price.
    Cardigan , I wouldn’t spend that much.
    If you will wear those jeans for years, go ahead and get them.
    Try more color.
    You asked. 🙂

  21. I have gotten SF several times myself. Usually their jeans picks are really good. They love to send me those open cardigans that I really don’t care for. There is always at least one item in the box that is so ugly/awful/wrong/overpriced that it keeps me from keeping the whole box, even though I end up getting that item for free with the discount. Keep the jeans, the black top, and the pink one, if you like it.

  22. Well, that was a fun way to start the day! Cute choices! Yes, Jordache looks good in those jeans. Jeans I’ve gotten through SF have turned out to be my favorites, and, bonus, I didn’t have to go hunt them down myself.
