Stitch Fix Subscription Review – July 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 is all dresses per my request since Golden Tote tends to send out lots of tops as surprise items, so I didn’t need any more!)
Angie Soren Mixed Print Ruffle Bordered Dress – Cost to Keep $58
I liked this dress on more than I thought I would, but it isn’t a piece I would reach for first in my closet, so back it goes. (Since Stitch Fix is full price unless you keep all 5 items, I only keep pieces that I think are fantastic!)
LA MADE Lorrie Maxi Dress – Cost to Keep $98
When I first picked this up, I thought there was no way I would like it on – the material is SO thin! Surprisingly though, it drapes beautifully, and I love the rope detail in the back:
It’s pretty pricey though, so I’m debating about keeping this one.
Mystree Striped Jersey Maxi Dress – Cost to Keep $68
I’m not crazy about the asymmetrical stripe design of this dress, and it’s a tad short for me, so it’s going back. (I do really appreciate that my stylist sent me so many maxis per my request!)
Tart Martine Mini Ikat Print Maxi Dress – Cost to Keep $168
This dress is just stunning, and it is from one of my favorite brands too. (In my opinion, Tart and Rachel Pally make the most flattering maxi dresses ever. They also both tend to run a little long, so I usually have to get my Rachel Pally dresses hemmed, and can usually just shrink Tart a little in the laundry and wear heels with it).
Needless to say, I REALLY want to keep this dress. (I usually try to get Rachel Pally and Tart dresses when they are on sale, but now that it’s in my hands I don’t want to part with it!)
Ezra Genovia Diamond Print Belted Dress – Cost to Keep $58
This dress just isn’t my style at all – dresses with this tunic type of cut tend to just look very boxy on me.
Verdict: I really appreciate that my stylist took my notes from my last fix and applied them well to this box (I asked for all dresses – mostly maxis, and more casual pieces – nothing too preppy). Of course I ended up loving the two most expensive pieces in the box. I’m still debating if I’ll keep both of the maxis.
