Stitch Fix Review – September 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!
My Subscription Addiction pays for this subscription. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).
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. (For reference, I requested casual items with a Free People look).
Market and Spruce French Terry Moto Jacket – Cost to Keep $68
I absolutely love this jacket and was expecting it to be a very expensive cost-to-keep item – so I was surprised it’s only $68! The bottom of this jacket flares out a little more than I would like though, so I’m debating about keeping it.
Collective Concepts Sandro Abstract Dot Print Racerback Tank – Cost to Keep $58
This tank on the other hand is more than I would like to spend on a basic printed top. It’s fine – but it’s not a show stopper for the price. It goes back in the pre-paid envelope!
Mavi Gold Bennie Straight Leg Jean – Cost to Keep $138
If you are looking for pants/jeans and want to be able to try them on at home, I highly recommend Stitch Fix. This pair fit me perfectly, and I love the pants and jeans I’ve received from them in the past as well. I’m OK with paying a premium for a quality well-fitting pair of jeans, so I think I’ll be keeping these. (I know I’ll wear them enough to justify it!)
Now I have to see if Mavi Gold carries high-waisted jeans too…
Papermoon Yorba Abstract Floral Print Kimono – Cost to Keep $48
I guess kimonos are having a moment this season! I would keep this one, but I just got a very similar kimono in the August Golden Tote!
Kut from the Kloth Marquis Heathered V-Neck Dolman Sweater – Cost to Keep $58
This sweater was so big, orange and intimidating when I first pulled it out of the box! It looks pretty boxy on the mannequin too, but it was surprisingly flattering when I put it on – and so cozy too. I’m thinking of keeping this and pairing it with skinny jeans.
Verdict: I think this box is the closest I’ve ever come to keeping all 5 items! (If I kept all it would save me $87.50 with the discount). I’m still picking which items I’m definitely keeping, but I’m happy with this box. The look is what I requested – casual. And the most structured item is made with a very informal material, so it works too.
