Stitch Fix Subscription Box Review – April 2016
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)

Ships to: US Only

Each box comes with cards with styling suggestions for every piece, plus a little note 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 $287.50 to keep everything –$57.50 per item.
This is the first month that Stitch Fix is also offering shoes! I was so excited about this, but they only offer sizes 6-10, and I wear 11. They do have half sizes, though.
Crescent Rita Embroidered Tunic – Cost to Keep: $58
I really like this tunic – the cut and fit is fantastic for me, and I like the fabric. However, I’m not a huge fan of embroidery accents (or crochet – but both are in right now). If I liked everything in my box, I’d keep this. $58 is too much for me to spend on something I just don’t think I’ll reach for.
Tart Kaylie French Terry Blazer – Cost to Keep: $128
I was happy to see this blazer because I had actually pinned it! It’s incredible, and crazy soft and comfortable. It’s an expensive-feeling weight and it fits me well. Unfortunately, I don’t think I can justify the price tag. If I worked outside the home or needed a blazer more often than just as an occasional extra layer to an outfit, I totally would invest in it.
Kut from the Kloth Catherine Boyfriend Jean – Cost to Keep: $88
These boyfriend jeans are amazing. They fit great and feel comfortable. The only problem is… I already own these! I bought them from TrendSend a couple months ago. I have to at least give my stylist credit for hitting the nail on the head though. I’d totally buy these again if I didn’t already have a pair.
Alice Blue Lucio Henley Blouse – Cost to Keep: $48
This is another item I had pinned! This floral top is super pretty, and the cut is flattering. However, the pink is a very bright neon pink in person (it doesn’t show up as brightly in the photo), and I’m not a huge fan of sheer layers I need a cami under. I’m debating keeping it,
Gentle Fawn Tressie Shirt Dress – Cost to Keep: $88
I want to love this dress so badly. The floral is pretty, it’s fully lined, comfortable, and easy to wear, but I just don’t feel like the shape/design is doing me any favors – especially the crochet bib in the front. I think I might be too big in the chest for this to be very flattering. I think this dress would look amazing on someone with a smaller bust.
(FYI the hem isn’t asymmetrical – it’s just the wind blowing it/the way I’m standing that might make it look that way in the photo.)
Verdict: This month’s fix wasn’t as good as last month’s for me, but it was still great! I wish I knew I’d need the blazer enough to invest in it, the jeans I already had, the dress has some slight fit issues on my figure, I liked the tunic okay, and I think I might keep the floral top. So, all in all, I was pretty happy with it – there were just small caveats with most of the items that kept me from keeping them.
