Stitch Fix Review – October 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. Turns out my stylist is still the girl who did most of my fixes while I was pregnant!
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 $227.50 to keep – approximately $45.50 an item.
Pixley Montgomery Cross Front Knit Top – Cost to Keep: $48
This top is so comfortable and I feel it’s very flattering. I love the wrap-front and that it’s sleeveless without having any issues with bra straps showing. I love everything about this shirt!
Liverpool Mira Skinny Jean – Cost to Keep: $78
These skinny jeans are everything I could ask for from a pair of skinnies. They fit like a dream and the rise is perfect and gives me just enough help with the post-partum tummy. They’re pull-on, actually, and they have plenty of stretch – you wouldn’t believe how comfy these are. I’m definitely keeping these; I actually had a pair of black skinnies in my cart from an online store and now I have these and don’t have to wonder or worry about ordering online!
Andrew Marc Florina Faux Leather Moto Jacket – Cost to Keep: $98
By the feel of it, I could tell this was a really quality leather jacket. So much so that I was actually surprised that the price was only $98. I like the way it looks but unfortunately, I just don’t wear jackets that hit me this short in the torso because it’s Fall for about 2 weeks here in Michigan and then you need a heavy/warmer coat for 5-6 months.
Skies Are Blue Kimball Crochet Panel Top – Cost to Keep: $48
This shirt does me no favors at all. Oh, well, this is definitely going back.
Gilli Judy Textured Pencil Skirt – Cost to Keep: $58
Pencil skirts generally don’t work for me, and this one was no exception.
Here is a better look at the detail on the Skies are Blue top.
Verdict: Even though I’m only keeping two items (the wrap top and skinny jeans), I’m really happy with this month’s Stitch Fix because of how much I love those two things. This is my first non-pregnant Stitch Fix, so both my stylist and I have just a little figuring out to do between my post baby body and the changing of the seasons where I live.
