Stitch Fix Review – February 2015
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).
Honey Punch Raglan Lace Detail Top – Cost to Keep $58
This is one of those tops that at first glance didn’t seem too special to me, but when I tried it on I was impressed with how beautifully it draped. (It’s pretty rare to find a loose fitting top that is also flattering, so I’m thinking I will keep this one).
Daniel Rainn V-Neck 3/4 Sleeve Solid Blouse – Value $68
I was kind of disappointed to see this top was selected for me. It’s a very classic top, but I don’t think it really matches the style I was going for with my requests for this subscription. Trying it on didn’t change my mind either. This top is going back.
Kensie Humphrey Streak Print Dress – Cost to Keep $88
This is hands down my favorite item in the box. I has an a-line cut so it flares out a bit, but the draping is perfect so it doesn’t make me look bigger than I am! The fabric is so soft too. Since I’ll wear it with leggings/tights, I’ll probably try to shrink it an inch or two in length through the laundry.
This dress is a definite keeper!
Look By M Halden Draped Front Sleeveless Cardigan – Cost to Keep $54
This is a cozy black knit sweater vest. I don’t have anything like it, and I love vests, but I just don’t want to pay full price for any winter clothing after Christmas, so I’m sending this one back.
Sanctuary Rennes Button Front Top – Cost to Keep $68
At first look, I didn’t think this looked like my style at all, but after trying it on I can definitely see myself wearing it with skinny jeans. The only issue is I’m not IN LOVE with it – and I don’t want to pay full price for any clothing piece I’m not pretty much obsessed with.
Verdict: I’m keeping the dress and probably the blue raglan lace top – both of the pieces are interesting, easy to wear and flattering – which means I’ll reach for them again and again when picking out what to wear. I can justify paying full-price for that! If I had kept all 5 items, my total would have been $237 (that includes the 25% discount for buying all 5 pieces, and deducting the $20 styling fee).
I think I’m going to try changing up my style profile each month to push myself out of my clothing comfort zone.
