Stitch Fix Review – June 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 this is my invoice sheet. It lists the prices per item and the discount I’d receive by keeping all 5 items.
May Pink Gander Lace Back Cardigan – Cost to Keep $48
This cardigan is made with a soft t-shirt material, and I love the nautical stripes. I’m not sure if I would have preferred it without the lace in the back though:
I’ll probably end up keeping this – even though I have quite a few similar items!
Daniel Rainn Deena Crochet Back Blouse – Cost to Keep $68
I liked this top much more than I thought I would! I liked the abstract print, but wasn’t sure if it would be flattering on – but it looks good, and the fabric drapes well too. And it is another lace open back design:
(Maybe I should update my style profile to let my stylist know I’m always cold and need more coverage!)
Renee C Tula Shift Dress – Cost to Keep $58
This dress was a complete miss for me. Shift dresses are already a challenge for me to pull off with my body type, and the cut of this one wasn’t flattering at all – the fit in the bust was too loose too.
Skies are Blue Manna Tie Front Knit Top – Cost to Keep $48
I like the Skies are Blue line (thanks to Golden Tote), but this top isn’t my style, and the tie front isn’t flattering.
Market & Spruce Sawyer Space Dye Dolman Sleeve Knit Top – Cost to Keep $58
I think I have a thing for dolman sleeve tops – Stitch Fix keeps sending them to me, and I keep keeping them! This one is super soft, and will look good with jeans. Here is a close up of the knit detail:
Verdict: This shift dress and tie-front top were misses this month, but everything else was a good pick for me, and the Deena Crochet Back Blouse was something I wouldn’t have picked out on my own, so I like that Stitch Fix pushes me out of my comfort zone a little each month.
What do you think of the Stitch Fix subscription service?
