Stitch Fix Review – September 2013

Stitch Fix Review - September 2013

Stitch Fix is a monthly clothing subscription service for women – complete with your own personal stylist! For $20 a month they ship you 5 new items based on your style profile, and if you decide to keep any item they deduct the $20 from cost of the item. So basically you get a stylist for free! (And if you decide to keep all five items you get 25% off everything).

Every month the selections are supposed to get better as your stylist learns about your likes and dislikes from previous boxes. I’ve been very happy with the service so far (this is my third month).

The only thing to keep in mind is you have 3 business days to get the items you don’t want to the post office (in a StitchFix pre-paid mailer).

Stitch Fix Review - September 2013

Tulle Atlantic Faux Fur Trim Hooded Coat

In my feedback on my last fix, I requested faux fur – and my stylist delivered!

Each item also comes with a card that has two styling suggestions.

I was pretty sure I was going to keep this coat until I put it on. I love the color, and the fit with the tie-waist belt, but I had such issues with the zipper! (My approach to Stitch Fix is that since I’m paying full price for the items, anything I keep must be 100% perfect!). Sadly, this coat did not make the cut.

Norwood Cowl Neck Long Sleeve Sweater – Value $58

Stitch Fix Review - September 2013

This lightweight sweater turned out to be one of my favorites in the box. It drapes beautifully and is perfect for layering in fall, and I think I’ll probably end up wearing this every season!

41 Hawthorn Galway Print Button-Up Blouse

(I believe 41 Hawthorn is the Stitch Fix in house brand).

Stitch Fix Review - September 2013

The cut on this blouse wasn’t for me. It was too short to tuck in, and not figure flattering otherwise.

Kensie Kaleigh Ankle Biter Skinny Jean - Value $88

Stitch Fix Review - September 2013

I’ve never worn colored jeans before – but after trying these on I fell in love. Between last month and this month, Stitch Fix has been amazing at sending me perfectly fitting pants!

Zella Spaghetti Strap Maxi Dress

Stitch Fix Review - September 2013

I love maxi dresses (and I let my stylist know it) so I wasn’t surprised to see  this in the box! This dress was so soft and cozy, but I ended up sending it back since I’m in fall mode now – AKA lots of leggings, layers, and faux fur vests. I’ll need to update my profile and let them know to pause maxi dresses for now!

Verdict: I am really happy with Stitch Fix. This month I added two amazing and versatile pieces to my wardrobe. The sweater and colored jeans are both items I probably would never buy shopping online, so I’m glad they were delivered to my house so I could try them on!

Do you subscribe to Stitch Fix? What do you think of the clothing stylist service?

(FYI – I only listed the prices of the items I kept because I managed to lose my invoice before I did this review, so I’m not sure what the items would have cost me if I kept them).

    1. I love my stitch fixes! It took me a couple months to get sizing of tops right, but I have kept at least one thing every time (my favorite are the Just Black by JustUSA jeans they’ve sent, they just fit me really well!) I think one thing that people need to remember with the tops is that they are usually boutique sizes. Not your typical gap, sizing. I found it best to go up a size.

    2. I just had my second fix in part due to your reviews… thanks! I had the same cowlneck sweater in my box and fell in love with it — soft and cozy and perfect for the Florida fall/winter. I felt like the stylists really listened to the feedback I provided on my first fix. I can’t wait until my October fix.

    3. I’ve only had one StitchFix box so far and was highly impressed with it. They got my style right the first time. Though I only kept one item as most of the other items were similar to other items I already owned, I love the Maddy M Fleather Cardigan I got and have been wearing it non-stop! I can’t wait for my September box to arrive! xo

    4. I continue to be super impressed with Stitch Fix. I loved the brown tote that they put on Facebook, and while they didn’t have any in stock, they sent me an adorable striped tote that will be perfect for vacation next month!

      Unfortunately, this month I had a few problems (credit not showing up, double-charged the styling fee, finding a hole in an outfit after one wear) but they have really excellent customer service – every issue was addressed within one business day and quickly resolved (credit added, double-charge fixed, new blouse sent priority two-day mail and a prepaid label sent to send the defective blouse back).

      I asked for a pair of colored denim in my next fix because I feel like every review I’ve seen has RAVED about the jeans! My roommate got a pair and she LOVES them.

    5. After two miserably failing boxes, I decided to cancel. I am sure that it takes a few boxes until they get it right, but I don’t have enough money to be throwing them twenty dollars until they figure it out! I actually liked my first box better than my second and they were both terrible! I couldn’t even keep one item to justify the money. I think it is well worth the money though, but sadly I gave up. I am glad your box is great though!

    6. Those Kensie jeans I received in Navy, and they are by far my favorite jeans I’ve ever owned. Such a good buy.

      You got a great box this month, I hope mine looks this good! Did you ask for a jacket? Curious how much it cost. I’ve had to be really picky because of how expensive each item has been. But Stitch Fix is such an awesome service. Thanks for sharing your Fixes! :)
