Stitch Fix Review – April 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).
And each box comes with a prepaid priority mail envelope to send back any items you don’t want to keep.
Alessandria Crochet Bib Lace Top – Cost to Keep $54
When I first looked at this top I didn’t think it would be something I’d keep since I have similar tops, but then I felt the fabric! It’s stretchy so it fits well and drapes well too. (90% Nylon 10% Spandex). Here is a close up of the detail:
Sam Hi-Lo Short Sleeve Tee – Cost to Keep $44
This is another item I was convinced I wouldn’t keep until I felt the fabric! This is by far the softest tee shirt material I’ve ever come across. I also love the color and the length, so it is a keeper!
Renee C Mixed Geo Print Pencil Skirt – Cost to Keep $48
This skirt hits me just below the knees, which isn’t a flattering length on me. At least this item was an easy decision – back it goes!
Kut from the Kloth Kate Distressed Boyfriend Jean – Cost to Keep $78
Stitch Fix has sent me Kut from the Kloth jeans before, and I’ve loved and kept quite a few of the pairs. These boyfriend jeans were a miss though. I think boyfriend jeans are hard to get right (at least for my body type). Getting just the right amount of looseness is key – and these were a little too big/loose and unflattering on me.
Sweet Rain Cardigan – Cost to Keep $48
This is a lovely lightweight spring cardigan, but I decided to send it back since I feel like I have quite a few of these already thanks to Golden Tote.
Verdict: I’m happy with my Stitch Fix mailing this month. Everything was a good match for me, but the misses were due to pieces not being flattering or being too similar to pieces I already own. I’m really happy with the two tops I kept – I think they are both pretty basic, and I’m sure I will wear them a lot this summer.
