Stitch Fix Review – February 2014

This post may contain referral/affiliate links. Read the full disclosure.

Stitch Fix Review - February 2014 Subscription Box

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.

Stitch Fix Review - February 2014 Cards

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!

Stitch Fix Review - February 2014 Hoodie

Loveapella Brownson Striped Hooded Open Cardigan – Cost $78

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).

Stitch Fix Review - February 2014 Dress

41 Hawthorn Madox Tribal Print Fit and Flare Dress – Cost $68

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.

Stitch Fix Review - February 2014 Blouse

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!

Stitch Fix Review - February 2014 Top Front

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!

Stitch Fix Review - February 2014 Top

Collective Concepts Cathleen Abstract Chevron Tulip Sleeve Blouse – Cost $68

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?

  1. All of that looks so cute! I would have never imagined spending money on something like this, but you are seriously tempting me. I love the Collective Concepts top and that hooded cardigan.

  2. I agree very much with the first comment. This fix was a complete miss for me. I did end up keeping one pair of jeans, brand Kut, however , probably shouldn’t have because it was the second pair of Kut jeans they have sent to me. Everything else was a complete miss. They even sent me similar items to what I have sent back in the past with comments!! I saw they just welcomed a bunch of new stylists, so maybe that is where the confusion lies. I much prefer Golden Tote! I would live to try Le Tote, but I can’t ever log into their website – some technological glitch. Has anyone else tried Le Tote?

  3. This month’s fix was mostly a miss for me. It was my sixth, and while the first three got consecutively better, the fourth was a complete screw up on their end (new stylist who welcomed me for my ‘first’ fix, totally ignored all my style notes and request notes – sent the whole box back and contacted CS), and the last two were ‘meh’ at best. A lot of the Stitch Fix magic is gone for me now…I might give them one more shot going into the spring months, but I may just stick with Golden Tote. The price point per item is just so much easier to swallow, even if some of the items are total surprises!

  4. For those of you who subscribe (to StitchFix or any of the other services), I’m wondering how much variation there is from what we see on this site? I’ve been kicking around the idea of signing up for a clothing subscription, but I prefer solid colors to prints and bright colors to pastels/neutrals, and I haven’t seen much of that here. It might just be that Liz and I don’t have the same taste in clothing, and that what she gets sent reflects how she filled out the questionnaire. With different answers, maybe I’d get completely different selections?

    I just don’t want to be stuck paying $20 if I won’t end up liking anything in the package. (If I keep at least one thing, it’s worth it. But if I don’t keep anything, I’m out the $20.) It’s very easy to take the plunge with something like Ipsy or Sample Society, because they’re cheap and I’m usually guaranteed to like a couple of things in the box, or with JustFab because I could browse all the shoes on the site before signing up (and I’m not stuck with what’s in my boutique). It’s a harder decision for me with clothing and jewelry items.

    • Thanks, I’ll check it out.

    • I’ve gotten 2 fixes and they were definitely way different than what Liz gets, as I think I have the opposite style. I have kept 4 pieces so far: a red v neck top, army green utility jacket, black cropped pants and a striped sweater. Hope this helps.

    • I’ve gotten two fixes and they’ve sent me lots of solid colored items, some gorgeous solid color blouses in cobalt, pink, navy and white. I was very detailed in my requests and explaining what I wanted and didn’t want. There was a dress in the first fix that is seriously one of my favorite items of clothing in my closet now! It’s definitely worth trying this service out if you are on the fence. I gave them a link to a pinterest board I made just for stitchfix style inspiration. That may have helped them pick!

  5. I love Stitch Fix. It took me two shipments before I found my perfect box. I am super thorough with the quiz and feedback. My stylist is Kau and she’s amazing. They always listen to requests. I have to say this is def one my top fav subscrition.

  6. This is one of the best stitch fix I have seen in a long time, if this was my I would had kept Everything!

  7. I’m on the fence with StitchFix. I just got my third fix and it was terrible! It’s gone downhill from my first fix and each one gets worse despite me giving detailed feedback each time and linking them to my Pinterest style board. Last fix they sent a pair of colored denim jeans that I loved but fit a little too tight. I asked them to send one size up and instead they sent me a different brand of jeans (not colored denim like I asked for) that were FOUR sizes bigger!! I told them I’d give them one more chance but maybe StitchFix isn’t for me. Sorry to rant Liz! I do really like all the items you received, and I love that open cardigan!

  8. Everything is very cute!! I am eager to try Stitch Fix? Do they ever have any coupon codes?

  9. I receive my fixes at the end of the month, so I’m commenting on my January fix (link below to see the items I received). I liked it. I’m happy if I get at least one thing I feel comfortable about keeping. So far 41Hawthorn, has not been a line that fits me well. But I have discovered other brands that I love and have some fantastic go to pieces, thanks to Stitch Fix

  10. I love those prints. I like this box much better than golden tote just because I like to choose what I want to wear. Golden tote sometimes has things I wouldn’t be caught dead in.
