Stitch Fix Review – March 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!)
FYI – My items are reflective of my style and price preferences, so your Stitch Fix may be completely different!
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. In my experience, the letter is very detailed and shows that my stylist really looked into my preferences when putting my “fix” together.
I love the bright coral color of this bag, and the zipper detail is about as edgy as I can go, so this bag is a food fit for me.
I love the lining print too! I’m debating about keeping this one – it really just depends on if I think I’ll wear it enough!
Papermoon Waters Diamond Print Maxi Dress – Cost $78
I was so happy to see a maxi (my favorite clothing item ever) in this box! Unfortunately this dress was a few inches too short on me, and I can’t justify paying $78 for a maxi that isn’t perfect, so I’m sad to say it goes back to Stitch Fix.
Mavi Kalie Denim Jacket – Cost $98
This is probably the most well-made denim jacket I’ve ever tried on. Even though I just got a denim jacket from Golden Tote I’m thinking about keeping this one because I know I will get so much use out of it that I can justify the cost!
Sadly, I can never pull off dresses like these. (This kind of waist band always ends up creating a blouse-y top that isn’t flattering for me).
These tops are actually sewn together at the shoulders. I liked it on more than I thought I would, but because I can’t change up the layering with this top I think I’ll send it back since I don’t think I’ll wear it enough to keep it.
Verdict: This box was a mix of hits and near-hits for me. I think I’ll likely keep the denim jacket and the purse, and I’ll pass along my feedback on the rest of the items to my stylist. I am really happy to see that they started sending spring and summer items in March though! In the past I feel like they’ve been a little behind in the new seasons, and I will only pay full price for an item if I can wear it for an entire season!
