Stitch Fix Subscription Box Review – August 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

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 $166 to keep everything –$33.20 per item.
Pixley Hawn Mixed Material Top – Cost to Keep: $54
I had pinned this shirt to my style board once or twice, so I was really happy to see my stylist sent it to me. I really like it but I’d need to size up. (The weird bunching at the chest wasn’t necessarily due to size – I just didn’t notice and fix it while taking photos, sorry.) It’s just the kind of bright and bold patterned tank I’ve been all about this summer.
The back is a grey knit, and I love how the colorful trim carries over to the back.
Laila Jade Tierra Cap Sleeve Top – Cost to Keep: $44
I love wearing tees (and stripes!), but I’m not sure about this color on me. Also, the material is thin enough that I would need to wear a camisole underneath it and I just hate wearing redundant torso fabric.
Le Lis Parsons Knit Top – Cost to Keep: $38
This tank has mixed prints of the pink and white stripes and a pretty floral fabric which shows up on the back and as the trim on the front and arm holes. This fabric is soft and buttery and it’s super comfortable. I also love that it’s a light color without being see-through.
Unfortunately, it’s not bra-friendly, which is a must for me, so I’m going to have to send it back.
Loveapella Raijo Lace Detail Knit Top – Cost to Keep: $48
This top is beautiful! It’s so soft and comfortable and stretchy. I love the lace detail on the top and it fits really well, though I think I could also size up and get a more flowy/drapey look.
Loveapella Sevila Funnel Neck French Terry Sweatshirt – Cost to Keep: $64
I think this is my favorite item in the fix, and the one I know I’m definitely keeping/not possibly sizing up in. The fit is great for me and its super comfortable. It’ll be perfect for fall or layering on chilly days as the season transitions.
Verdict: This was a great fix! I loved all the colorful tanks. I think my stylist could have sized up for a couple items so I’ll have to add that to my feedback. I also really appreciate the price point – under $200 for everything.
