Stitch Fix Review – February 2014
Stitch Fix is a monthly styling subscription service. When you sign up you take a pretty in-depth survey about your sizes, your style, and pricing preferences, and then your personal stylist sends you 5 items to try once a month. The fee for this service is $20, and that includes free shipping and free returns. And if you keep any of the items they send you, you get to deduct the $20 fee from the total. (If you keep all five items, you also get a 25% discount!)
I love online clothing shopping, but I tend to stick to items I know I won’t likely need to return, so I don’t take many risks. What I like about Stitch Fix is that my stylist usually sends me a few items that are totally me, and one or two items that push me out of my comfort zone a little bit.
The Subscription 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
Each fix comes with styling suggestion cards and a letter from your stylist. I could tell that my stylist looked at my past feedback when putting together my suggestions, and I really appreciate the letter!
My stylist included this piece since I loved the open cardigan in my last fix. It definitely is my style, and has a wonderful beach vibe – I’ll probably end up keeping this piece.
(A look at the hood).
The print of this dress is cute and slightly nautical (which I love), but the length was a few inches too long for me, and it was a little roomy in the torso as well. This one is going back, and I may need to update my dress size in my account.
Under Skies Tribal Print Tab Sleeve Blouse – Cost $58
I LOVE that they sent me all spring/summer prints in this box. I’m so over winter and definitely don’t want to pay full price for any winter clothing.
This top looked better on than I expected. It’s going in the maybe-keep pile!
Pomelo Priya Tribal Printed Knit Back Tank – Cost $54
This top was cute on, and I like the print, but $54 is pretty pricey to me for a tank, and since I don’t absolutely LOVE it, I think it’s going back.
I do like the mixed fabrics though!
There were lots of blouses/tops this month! This is another one that was surprisingly flattering even though it looks kind of boxy in this picture.
I’m not sure how often I’d wear it since I don’t wear jeans that much, so I think I’ll send it back.
Verdict: I love all the prints and colors my stylist picked for me this month, and the open hoodie cardigan was a great addition to the box. Nothing was a miss out of the five items in terms of what I would wear (and if this was Golden Tote I’d be thrilled with my items), but since I’m paying full price unless I keep everything, I only want to pick items that I love and will reach for time and time again when getting dressed. I think that means I’ll just be keeping the hoodie and tab-sleeve blouse this month.
(I’m still waiting for the shipment when I decide to keep everything and get to save 25%!) What did you get in your Stitch Fix this month?
