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).
The Box: Stitch Fix
The Cost: $20 Styling fee (Pay for whatever items you keep minus the $20 credit).
The Products: 5 clothing and accessory items selected for you based on your Style Profile.
Ships to: US Only

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