Stitch Fix Subscription Box Review – November 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)

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 $184 to keep everything – an average of $37 per item and a total discount of $88.
Each box comes with cards with styling suggestions for every piece, plus a little note from your stylist.
Market & Spruce Dido Mixed Print Top – Cost to Keep: $58
I seriously love this top. This color is so nice and something I don’t already have much of in my wardrobe. The statement part of this top is the mixed materials… the back has a gorgeous, colorful print – shown below!
Liverpool Elizabeth Super Skinny Jean – Cost to Keep: $78
Last year I bought some black Liverpool skinnies from Stitch Fix that have a wide elastic waistband, so they’re pull-on. I was just coming out of maternity jeans and I was so happy to find a pair of jeans like that. These are the same way, just with blue denim! The waistband is so comfortable and has a great higher rise so it’s very flattering. I knew I was going to keep these as soon as I saw them.
This is the back of the top – I love this pattern!
Le Lis Levine Crochet Detail Knit Top – Cost to Keep: $48
I love the color, I like the shape and fit, but I just don’t care for crochet details. The “cold shoulder” detail is very trendy right now, and I even like that, but the large, off-white crochet details do weird things with the eye when looking at it. I think it draws attention to my upper arms and makes them look big and leave my shoulders looking ambiguous and undefined. I know I’ll never wear this, but I might keep it for the 5-item discount and trade or swap it.
Sweet Grey Abbots Knit Top – Cost to Keep: $54
I’m on the fence about this top. I love a cute casual tee but I think the color blocking proportions do funky things to my torso. If this were tunic length, I think it’d be more flattering.
Outhouse Whitmore Bauble Stone Collar Necklace – Cost to Keep: $34
I love this necklace. It’s definitely my taste and I love that it’s a statement piece without being too flashy or overpowering.
The gray color will work really well with pretty much my entire wardrobe,
Also, I’ve found it a little difficult to find good silver collar necklaces (I keep finding cute gold ones), so this is just my taste. I liked it as soon as I pulled it out of the box!
Verdict: I really liked this fix! I thought my stylist picked some great pieces for me. I don’t love the tee or the crochet-detail top, but the price of the jeans, necklace, and mixed print top add up to just about the same price as keeping all 5 with the discount, so I might do that and try to trade the other pieces. I love that my stylist kept my total fix at only $184 total – I’m happy when they total to under $200.
