Stitch Fix Review – August 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.
And this is my invoice sheet. It lists the prices per item and the discount I’d receive by keeping all 5 items. With the 25% discount and my $20 styling fee factored in, this box would cost me a total of $221.50 to keep – approximately $44.30 an item.
19 Cooper Rover Abstract Print Zip Back Blouse – Cost to Keep $58
I wasn’t crazy about this print when I pulled it out of the box, but I ended up liking it when I put it on. I like it, not love it though, so I’m not sure I can justify keeping it at the $58 price.
Here is the zippered back:
41Hawthorn Carla Crochet Detail Blouse – Cost to Keep $58
I have a theory that Stitch Fix sends lots of loose fitting blouses because they are more likely to fit well (and not be returned). This works fine for me in this case – I don’t have many red tops, and I like the detail on this top:
RD Style Tavo Cocoon Cardigan – Cost to Keep $64
This cardigan is SO cozy! I’m debating keeping it even though I own similar items. I like the detail on the shoulders too:
THML Ingrid Embroidered Halter Top – Cost to Keep $54
This is another top I’m debating about keeping – I like the neckline, and I don’t have anything similar in my closet.
Sweet Grey Jody Maxi Dress – Cost to Keep $88
I’m a little obsessed with maxis, so I’m glad my stylist took note of it and sent this! The material of this dress is really soft, and I really like the cutout detail in the back:
I can actually wear a normal bra with this back! I really want to keep this dress!
Verdict: This is one of the best boxes I’ve received in my subscription – and the first time I’m debating keeping all five items to get the 25% off discount.
What do you think of Stitch Fix? Have you received any boxes that you ended up keeping entirely for the 25% discount?
