Stitch Fix Clothing Subscription Box Review – July 2017

This post may contain referral/affiliate links. Read the full disclosure.

Stitch Fix Womens July 2017 Clothing Subscription Box

Stitch Fix is a monthly clothing and styling subscription service. When you sign up you take a pretty in-depth survey about your sizes, your style, and pricing preferences. After choosing when you’d like to receive your delivery, your stylist handpicks 5 items based on your preferences. 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!)

My items are reflective of my style and price preferences, so your Stitch Fix may be completely different!

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 $255.25 to keep everything – an average of $51.05 per item and a total discount of $111.75.

For anything you plan to return, Stitch Fix instructs you to complete a checkout process online so they know what to expect coming back, and it also allows you to provide feedback about the items. They include a USPS prepaid mailing bag in your box too. You just pack up the items you don’t want and drop the bag off at your post office. Last month, I left the bag for my mail carrier and they picked it up! So convenient!

Each box comes with cards with styling suggestions for every piece, plus a little note from your stylist. This was by far the most helpful piece of info in the box because it inspired outfits I wouldn’t have thought of otherwise! I also really appreciate that my new stylist, Jan, acknowledged the feedback I provided on past boxes and curated this box based on past Fixes and reviews, along with my Pinterest board.

Lucky Brand Aviee Lace Up Flat – Cost to keep: $69

This month’s accessory is a cute pair of blush faux suede flats. I love the color and they are super comfortable on. Elastic creates a crisscross across the top of my foot which also adds to the comfort. My first thought was, “I’m definitely keeping these” but that was before I saw the $69 price tag. I’m willing to invest in unique and functional pieces, but this price seems a little steep for a rather basic pair of flats.

My first complete outfit consists of three items Stitch Fix sent this month, including the flats!

Loveappella Atherton Lace Sleeve Knit Top – Cost to keep: $48

The first of two tops this month is this navy blue knit top with crochet sleeves. The top is rather long on, but fits true to size and is made of a soft and comfortable knit. I like the uniqueness of the crocheted sleeves, which are equally soft. It’s unlikely that I’ll keep this item, but kudos to Jan for sending a top inspired by lacy items I pinned to Pinterest!

Just Black, Kiah High Rise Uneven Fray Hem Skinny Jean – Cost to keep: $88

Yay for a nicely fitted pair of high-rise denim! I don’t have a pair of medium wash jeans without distressing, so I am strongly considering keeping them. They fit like a glove and are cut with an ankle length, which I have been enjoying all year. And in the fall, I know I could continue pairing them with low booties and an oversized sweater.

This is officially the summer of unique, “what will they do next?” denim hems. This hem is frayed and cut asymmetrically, which I think looks cool on. Overall the jeans are super casual but feel sophisticated, likely due to the lack of knee distressing and rips.

Guest Editor Sesi Off The SHoulder Tie Sleeve Top – Cost to keep: $64

Also a predictable inclusion to this summer’s clothing boxes is the cold shoulder and off the shoulder trends. I have been semi-open to the trend but hadn’t found a style that looked flattering or that I felt comfortable in. Until now. This top is adorable! The main reason I like it is for the fabrication. This top is a loose fitting cotton that feels like poplin or dress shirting. And since the sleeves are also loose, it feels more cool and sophisticated instead of like I’m trying to hard in a tight-fitting knit style. The white and gray stripes would have made this the perfect top to bring on my Parisian vacation last month. Oh well, I can relive the memories with this top!

I also really like that the spaghetti straps are thin and adjustable. I feel secure and comfortable in this top even though it’s a looser fit.

Daniel Rainn Dora Crochet Detail Dress – Cost to keep: $98

Last up this month is a 100% rayon bold floral printed dress with crocheted sleeves. I dress rather casually day to day, so I’m not really in the market for a daytime casual dress. However, this style fits really well and the quality is there for $98. It is nicely lined with a thick black polyester and accented with black crochet on the sleeves and neckline. The floral print is super funky and I like the mix of color.

The back of the dress includes a tie which can cinch the dress to show off your figure or can be untied to wear as more of an A-line dress. I like the versatility here and think this dress would work with a myriad of body types.

The back also includes a keyhole and button closure.

Verdict: This is my sixth Stitch Fix box and just when I gave up hope, Jan comes through with my favorite box to date! The shoes, cold shoulder top, and jeans are totally my style and I can appreciate the floral dress and crocheted top also sent. Even though the latter two are not keepers, I feel the past feedback and style preferences provided have finally been heard! And, I’m happy to say that I’m looking forward to next month’s box.

All in all, the $20 monthly styling fee (which also includes free shipping and returns) is a low-risk way of shopping for clothes in the comfort of your home.

  1. I would love to have those shoes. I do get stitch fix but they have never sent me those. I wonder if anyone knows where you can purchase those shoes?

    Also does anyone have an opinion on if stitch fix or Wantable is a better box?
    Thanks

  2. I am finding Stitch Fix to be overpriced. If I saw those price tags in a store, I would look for something else. You can find much cuter clothing at a thrift shop. I tried Stitch Fix five times and only kept two items.

  3. I really like that off the shoulder top! I’m actually jealous of your box, this was my first Fix and I made sure to reiterate in my info that I do not like to show my arms but they included 2 sleeveless dresses. That top would be perfect for my concerns! 🙁

  4. Has anyone had returns issues with StitchFix? I returned three items this month, all in the same package, and StitchFix sent me an email saying I had only returned one item. They graciously offered to “adjust my receipt.” When I explained I did indeed return the disputed items, they apologized, but I’m really concerned that they are either disorganized, or they have thieves in the mailroom, and ultimately that cost will get passed on to me.

  5. Hi! What do you think about the overall quality of their clothes? Is it worth the original or discounted pricing? Between this review and some of my coworkers feedback, I’m interested in trying it out. But I’m also trying to stay within budget and can’t help but feel a bit bourgeois if I subscribed. The idea of having a stylist seems so luxorious!

  6. This is a really cute box for you. The fit is really nice. My favorite is the jeans, shoes and navy top. I don’t care for the other top or the dress, but that’s just a personal choice. The first outfit looks so cute on you! This is the best box I have seen you review.

  7. Gorgeous box. I would want to keep it all.

    • Yep, this box was definitely a good one!

  8. Wow, kudos to the stylist for doing that much research to try to get you a better box. I’m impressed.

    • Me too! So happy with my stylist and this box’s curation!

  9. The jeans look adorable on you. Love the hem! I would skip the dress though. Way too much for what it is and the style is kinda eh…

  10. I would keep the whole box-even the shoes. I tend to spend more on staple pieces then unique items.

    • Yep, I decided the shoes were too good to pass on 🙂

  11. I know you said you weren’t in the market for it, and it’s really up to you, but if I were you, I’d keep that dress. It’s a beautiful dress, and it really looks so amazing on you. It really seems made for you! Perfect fit, and perfect for your style too!

    • I agree. Really lovely….

    • Thanks for your kindness! I ultimately decided to return it, but I hope Stitch Fix sends other unique dresses in the future!
