Stitch Fix Subscription Review – June 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!
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 box comes with cards with styling suggestions for every piece, plus a letter from your stylist. (FYI – my box this month is all dresses and skirt because after last month I decided no tops, and updated my profile. Golden Tote tends to send out lots of tops as surprise items, so I didn’t need any more!)
41 Hawthron Ernesto Striped Fitted Dress – Cost to Keep $78
I love the coral and white stripe colors of this dress, and it fit perfectly too. The only thing I’m trying to figure out is if the ruching at the waist is flattering or not. I may end up keeping this one – I think I need to try it on again!
Under Skies Rho Mixed Chevron Sleeveless Dress – Cost to Keep $58
This dress is lovely, and fits pretty well (it’s just a bit loose, but I’m guessing it will fit perfectly once it goes through the laundry). The only issue I have is the length – it’s a little too long for me.
41Hawthorn Harriet Chevron Print Detail Dress – Cost to Keep $64
What’s weird is that this is the same brand as the first dress that fit me really well, but this one is super loose in the torso. Back it goes!
Honey Punch Quincey Striped Maxi Skirt – Cost to Keep $58
I’m a little disappointed to get another maxi skirt since I just got one in my last fix – and I keep asking for maxi dresses! This one is a super thin fabric too, so back it goes.
Gilli Kamile Jersey Ruched Detail Dress – Cost to Keep $58
This dress is extremely flattering, and I may end up keeping it. I do have so many similar dresses though, so I’m not sure how often I’d wear it.
Verdict: The only issue I’m realizing with this Fix, is that for me, these are somewhat classic/preppy looks, and I’ve requested only Bohemian Chic and Casual Chic items, with an emphasis on not wanting anything for business casual/work, or cocktails/special occasions. (I’m going for more of a Free People / Golden Tote look). I just went back to my survey and updated it again with specific comments about my preferences, so I’m hoping that helps for my July fix – my stylist did respond very well to my other requests for this month. Also, to be fair, these dresses may be casual chic to most people and just not me. (And it’s not that I don’t like classic/preppy looks – it’s just that after working at ModCloth for 4 years with an amazing employee discount, I have more fancy and adorable dresses in my closet with tags on them than I will ever wear!)
What did you get in your Stitch Fix this month? Do you feel they are doing a good job at getting your style right?
