It’s August and almost time for back to school. Remember when back to school meant buying sweaters, corduroys and Trapper Keepers? No? Possibly I am dating myself. Well now the kids head back to school in the Summer rather than the Fall and dressing for the occasion can be a little tricky. This is where Teen Stitch Fix comes to the rescue.
If you are new to the Mayhem (first of all, welcome) here are some links to my earlier posts about Stitch Fix July Stitch Fix Review and June Fix Review . This post is about my daughter’s latest Fix, you can read about her experience here Stitch Fix Teen Edition

Let’s get to Piper’s back to school Fix because it was stellar. Her stylist this time was, Wendy and she really set her up with some nice stuff. First out of the box was this super cute, soft and lightweight plaid shirt and snappy shorts.
She paired these two items with a white tank top for a very stylish, potential first day of school look. The shorts were also part of the this Fix they are navy blue, have an elastic waist and lace trim at the leg. The fabric is a poly blend and nice enough to dress up or down depending on the circumstance. It’s a very all-American look.
This fun, silver tassel necklace completed the look
Next out of the box was this cute, black knit dress. Since dress code at Piper’s school requires shoulders to be covered, this dress will work as a nice layering piece either under the flannel shirt in this fix or the jean jacket from her denim jacket from her May Teen Stitch Fix.
Finally, this sweater is the perfect layering piece to go from Summer to Fall.
To be clear, this furball did not come with the Stitch Fix, he just wanted to be part of the photo shoot. This is Percy, Piper’s cat. He showed up unannounced on our porch one day and is now one of the feline members of our family.
This was definitely a 5 for 5 Fix, but what was the financial damage? Actually, not bad. As those of you who have read these posts know, I give her a budget of $100, anything over that she has to pay for herself. The total cost of this Fix was $196, with the 25% discount for buying all 5 items, and the styling fee credit of $20, the final cost was $127. This meant she only had to work a few hours at my office and she had 3 new cute outfits to head back to school in.
