Stitch Fix Review – April 2014

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

Stitch Fix Review - April 2014 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!)

FYI – My items are reflective of my style and price preferences, so your Stitch Fix may be completely different!

The Subscription Box: Stitch Fix

Stitch Fix Review - April 2014 Cards

Each fix comes with styling suggestion cards and a letter from your stylist.

Stitch Fix Review - April 2014 Jeans

Just Black Rogers Distressed Boyfriend Jean – Cost $78

These jeans are perfect except they are one size too large. My other pants from Stitch Fix have fit perfectly, so I’m thinking this brand may just run large. Sadly these are going in the return envelope!

Stitch Fix Review - April 2014 Maxi

Lily Multi Stripe Maxi Dress – Cost $98

I am always requesting maxi dresses from my stylist, and she’s definitely getting better at finding me the perfect dress! This one is fully lined, and very well made (It definitely feels like a $100 dress). I’m not sure if I love the colors and print enough to wear it all the time and justify the cost. It’s in the maybe pile right now.

Stitch Fix Review - April 2014 Top

Fate Annabella Knit Layered Top – Cost $58

As soon as I put on this top I knew I’d be keeping it. It drapes beautifully and is a perfect summer top to put over anything!

Stitch Fix Review - April 2014 Wrap

RD Style Crochet Knit Drape Front Cardigan – Cost $68

I love this style of cardigan, but unfortunately this one isn’t draping right on me. Back it goes!

Stitch Fix Review - April 2014 Sw

Yumi Bernie Pointelle Detail Knit Top – Cost $88

I love this color! It’s a pretty loose top, so it’s not the most flattering, and I don’t think I can justify keeping it at $88. (Since I pay full price for my Stitch Fix items, I make it a rule that I have to absolutely LOVE each item I keep).

Verdict: Every item in the box was a hit or a near hit for me, so I feel like my stylist is getting better at picking out pieces that match my style and clothing requests.

Do you subscribe to StitchFix? Was your April “fix” a success?

  1. Stitch Fix was so exciting in the beginning as I felt my stylist understood me, though I noticed they kept changing stylists. My monthly fixes should be getting better with my feedback, but many times I feel like they are striking out because they are not reading my comments or even heeding my style profile. Please read my comments Stitch Fix! My style is demonstrated by my Pinterest, my style is very specific and I have clearly outlined what I love and hate. Maybe they don’t have the inventory for me as I prefer a lot less boho, and more chic. I clearly state that in my Golden Tote too because some of their styles are just beyond comprehension. I hope both get better.

  2. I have the same problem as others -my fixes seem designed for someone else. I won’t turn this into a rant. I wish that if StitchFix requests such an in-depth profile, they would really follow it. I don’t want it to take 5 fixes for them to get it right.

  3. I received the FATE Annabella Ponitelle Knit Layer Top in my March fix. I too, knew right away it was a keeper! Love this top!

  4. I actually just had my first fix and I loved every item so much! Unfortunately, I didn’t have the funds to purchase it all. I did however purchase the Alexander Aztec Drape Cardigan. I mean I just adore it, even if it is summer time! I loved the jeans they sent me as well from Kensie, but I found them 30 dollars cheaper online so I bought them there. Overall I was thrilled with my stylist, I got lucky!

    • In the response I got from Stitch Fix, they did tell me to let them know about any pricing concerns before sending a fix back in the future. So, if you like an item but see it cheaper elsewhere, it might be worth letting them know and giving them the opportunity to drop their price.

  5. I just got my first fix earlier this week and I am in love! I got two pairs of colored skinny jeans, a tank, a short sleeve top and a long sleeve zip up cardigan. At first sight i loved every item! Unfortunately neither of the pants fit (one was close, other was way off). I kept all the tops. Style wise, it was dead on though. I could really tell that the stylist paid attention to my profile/notes/pinterest. I loved the cards with the outfit ideas. I have already scheduled my next fix and I can not wait to get it!!!

  6. I like your Stitch Fix better than mine. I had stripe-a-palooza, not what I requested. Sent it all back, and its my third try 🙁 Going to take a break for now. Any tips? http://wp.me/p4lGPl-8L

  7. Just got my second Fix yesterday and I’m frustrated because I feel like the stylists are completely ignoring my style profile. I mentioned that I’m an hourglass shape so I like tops / dresses with defined waist. My first fix, I got two flowy chiffon dresses and a loose top. I also made a note that I’m not a fan of the current tribal / Aztec print trend and this fix I got TWO tribal print tops.

    Why are they going out of their way to send things I hate? Have others had this problem?

  8. Do you keep the same stylist? It seems that every month I end up with a different stylist, and it feels like they can’t learn my style if it keeps switching. I’m sure they read notes in my file, but it’s a different person each time. My most recent fix was lots misses for me when I feel like 4 fixes in that I should be getting better items. Last month had lots of near hits, and I think I even mentioned that I was close to keeping everything but decided against it. I would have thought they would take that to mean that the stylist for that fix was a good fit for me and kept her with me, but I got switched again. I even wrote them an email and haven’t gotten a response.

    • I think they switched my stylist once, and then it did take a fix or two for her to start to get my style preferences. Hopefully they respond to you soon and stop switching your stylist!

      • I sent them an e-mail last week with some of my frustrations/concerns and I haven’t seen a response. I was also rather upset that one of the shirts that they sent me was $68 and the company’s website was selling it for only $56, and it wasn’t on sale. As I said to them, I expect to pay retail, but that kind of mark-up is ridiculous. If I hadn’t had the $20 styling fee, I would have sent the whole last fix back. I ended up keeping a shirt that was okay, but I doubt I would have purchased had I tried it on at a store, but I didn’t want to see the $20 go entirely wasted. 🙁

    • Maggie—
      I had different stylists for my first 4 or 5 fixes, and most of them were just OK. A couple months ago I got a box that was so bad—it didn’t seem like they were listening to my feedback or looking at my Pinterest board at all! I sent StitchFix my comments and told them I would give them one more chance. After that I finally got a stylist who “gets” me… I actually kept all the items from the first fix she sent me and I would have kept everything from the last box too if not for some fit issues. I’ve requested to keep her and she’s been my stylist the past couple months.

      • I actually just sent a follow-up e-mail to the one that I had sent last week, because they said that I should hear back within 48 hours, and it has been about 4 days since I sent my e-mail. I really do hope that they manage to match me with a stylist that ‘gets me’ because I love the idea of it. I am jealous of people who have gotten fixes where they want to keep everything.

        • Hey Maggie – it took me five fixes to get that “perfect” fix also, and I think I had 4 different stylists during that time. You better believe I’ll be requesting the same one from here on out! You can see my fixes at littlesustainableme.wordpress.com to see what my stylists did…

    • I did eventually get a response after sending a follow-up e-mail. The woman who responded has offered to be my stylist for the next fix. I have also gone and added a lot more to my pinterest board in hopes that it will help her get a sense of my style, and she has said that she will put a note on my file not to send me anything gold. I did notice when looking at my profile that they don’t give any options for only wearing gold or silver, it is just mostly one or the other or a mix of both. Fingers crossed that my next fix will be a step up!
