Stitch Fix Review – March 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).
Skies are Blue Darcey Heathered Knit Draped Cardigan – Cost to Keep $58
I like the Skies are Blue brand (I’m always excited when Golden Tote includes any of their items in a tote). This cardigan is very soft and cozy, but a little too similar to a few other pieces I own to keep. (And I don’t want to pay full price for a sweater in March).
Henry & Belle Maja High Waisted Skinny Jean – Cost to Keep $98
I’m always on the hunt for a new pair of flattering and comfortable jeans, so I love when Stitch Fix sends me jeans I can try on at home. These are perfect for me – the high waist is the right height, and they have the perfect amount of stretch. They are a keeper! I’m also surprised to see that these jeans retail for $149 on the Henry & Belle site!
Mystree Gerrie Open Stitch Sweater – Cost to Keep $68
I like this sweater for layering, and it seems like a good piece to transition from winter to spring – it is in the maybe keep pile.
Fun2Fun Shivan Split Neck Blouse – Cost to Keep $48
At first glance this blouse did not look like me at all, and trying it on confirmed that! It’s a big print in an unflattering cut for my body shape – this is going back.
Olive & Oak Marley Split Back Knit Top – Cost to Keep $44
This fabric of this top is so soft, and it is a little sheer, so it will be great for layering. It’s a relatively low price point too, so it is a keeper!
Verdict: With the exception of the floral blouse, this box was a good match for me, and I’ll be keeping 2 (possibly 3) items. If I had kept all 5 items, my total would be $222, or about $44.40 an item. (That’s after the 25% discount for keeping all 5 items, and my $20 stylist fee).
I’m hoping my April box has more Spring themed items though – I’m done with winter even if the weather in Pittsburgh is not!
