Stitch Fix Subscription Box Review – September 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)
The Products: 5 clothing and accessory items selected for you based on your Style Profile.
Ships to: US Only
Keep Track of Your Subscriptions: Add this box to your subscription list or wishlist!
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 $196.75 to keep everything –$39.35 per item.
Colette Dorada Faux Suede Raglan Knit Top – Cost to Keep: $37
This top combines 2 things I generally don’t wear: raglan tops and faux suede. The faux suede is the material for the sleeves. I love the pretty color of the sleeves but I just don’t think I like the top overall. Even though it fits well, something about this top makes me feel like it’s just not flattering to my torso, especially, I think, because the lighter color is the bodice material.
Liverpool Denise 4-Way Stretch Bootcut Jean – Cost to Keep: $88
Oh, Liverpool. How I love thee. These fit fantastically, are a fabulous dark wash (my jean love language), have a nice high rise, and are super long! (I’m tip-toeing a little for the photo because my booties are still packed away from moving at the beginning of summer). I’ve found that I fall hard and fast for good jeans from subscription boxes, so I’m really tempted to keep these. I just don’t wear heels often anymore since they make toddler-chasing much more difficult, and in the winter I generally wear boots that I tuck skinnies or leggings into. Since these jeans are far too long to wear with flats, I’ll have to really think about these.
RD Style Warren Airy Knit Cocoon Cardigan – Cost to Keep: $58
Even though this cardigan is a gorgeous wine shade and fits well, I just think the doleman-esque sleeves/shape isn’t one I’ll reach for much. I think this is a great sweater, just not for my personal wardrobe. This is going back.
Kut from the Kloth Benter Mixed Material Top – Cost to Keep: $58
KFTK is another brand I really love thanks to subscriptions, but I haven’t tried any tops from them before. This one is fantastic. The sleeves are a buttery knit and I love the maroon floral print of the main section. The floral material goes all the way around, too, which I especially appreciate over just a front panel. This fits great and is super comfortable. This is also a situation in which I don’t mind/actually like the different material/color sleeves. I don’t know if I can resist keeping this top!
Loveappella Wilson Contrast Sleeve Knit Top – Cost to keep: $48
I feel like I may sound a little like a broken record, but Loveappella is another brand that I’ve had an ongoing love affair with thanks to Stitch Fix. I’ve kept many Loveappella pieces, both maternity and women’s over the years, most recently a fantastic sweatshirt from my August fix. Anyway, this tee is comfortable and feels very high quality. The slightly longer-than-average length has me swooning, and again I like the sleeve accents here. This is a cute casual top, but I don’t know if it’s $50 special.
Verdict: This was a great fix! I didn’t leave any notes for my stylist this month so I was excited to see what she’d pick for me and was pleasantly surprised. Also, I love when my 5-item price is less than $200. The only item I really love is the Kut from the Kloth mixed material top, but I liked trying out everything in this month’s fix.
