Stitch Fix Clothing Subscription Box Review – September 2017

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

Stitch Fix September 2017 Women's 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 $241 to keep everything – an average of $48.20 per item and a total discount of $107.

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 is by far the most helpful piece of info in the box because it inspired outfits I wouldn’t have thought of otherwise!

Jan styled my last couple of boxes and I was happy with her curation! I don’t recall asking for a new stylist, however, Emilie styled this box and focused on some cooler weather items based on my style and feedback from last month. Let’s see what I got!

Bay To Baubles Jasmin Layered Necklace, n/s – Cost to keep: $34

I was happy to see a piece of jewelry in this month’s Stitch Fix. This multi-layered gold chained necklace was shipped in a standard jewelry box with padding, which I appreciate. However, it arrived pretty tangled and took a minute to figure out how it all worked. Once on, I was super happy with this piece. I’m all about symmetry and this piece speaks to that in a really cool way. I’m a fan of gold over silver jewelry, so another reason this is a win. The bars aren’t the highest quality, but the price is right for this piece.

Edyson Marsha Ponte and Faux Leather Jacket, size S – Cost to keep: $88

I received this box the same week as The Golden Tote, so I took an opportunity to pair this jacket with the mystery dress sent. A winning combination, no? The jacket is mixed media – faux burgundy leather on the majority of the front and back yoke, and then a burgundy polyester knit on the sleeves and rest of the back. I like how the inside of the faux leather has a suede look and feel, which also adds a nice contrast.

The back of the jacket has seamed paneling, which provides structure to an otherwise lightweight, flimsy fabric. It also provides a nice true to size fit, similar to a moto jacket.

There are three button-looking snaps on each sleeve as well. You can fit your hand through the opening without unsnapping, but they’re a nice detail nonetheless. This is a great on-trend item!

Soaked in Luxury Rossie Embroidered Sleeve Knit Sweatshirt, size S – Cost to keep: $74

Even when I’m dressed casually, I’m never super casual, so this black sweatshirt is the perfect balance of what I look for when dressing down. It is made of traditional lightweight sweatshirt knit and complete with raglan sleeves and banded cuffs and hem that you’d expect. The neckline is a little more relaxed and there’s an overall looser fit.

What I love the most about this sweatshirt is to no surprise, the embroidered sleeves. A thick floral pattern is embroidered on each sleeve and adds just enough style to elevate a casual outfit. Even though the quality of the embroidery is there, $74 feels a little steep for a lightweight sweatshirt. I’m on the fence about keeping this, but will likely return it because of the price point.

Liverpool Jolie Distressed Released Hem Skinny Jean, size 4 – Cost to keep: $88

Liverpool is a denim brand you will see a lot in Stitch Fix boxes. And these are drastically better than the pair sent last month! This pair of jeans has essentially everything I’m looking for: dark wash, minimal distressing and rips, and a funky hem, which in this case, is raw edge and unstitched. They fit like a glove and are a great price too! The only issue is I own an almost identical pair from DailyLook Elite. Honestly, do I need another pair?! This denim-addict says maybe yes!

Pixley Jackie Collared Poplin Top, size S – Cost to keep: $74

I have mixed feelings about this top. On one hand, it’s made of crisp, white poplin and has super rad bell sleeves. On the other hand, the poplin is a poly/cotton blend (so not breathable) and is an unflattering fit. I am a home sewer who relies on patterns, so I hope you can understand when I say, I feel like I made this from a pattern. The fabric feels like something I’d pick up at a fabric store chain and there are details like the collar that is just too big for the size sent. There is some serious tailoring that would be needed in order for me to keep this – especially with the $74 price tag!

I do absolutely love these sleeves and can understand why Emilie sent this option to me. There is a nice ruffle at the sleeve seam!

The collar opens in the back with a button/elastic keyhole detail.

Verdict: This month’s Stitch Fix box was not the best I’ve received, but also not the worst. I generally liked everything sent but found small issues with a couple that will prevent me from keeping the whole box. I’m also not terribly pleased that 4 of the 5 items fell in the $70-90 range – a little more price variety would be great in the future.

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. But after months of receiving this box along with Wantable Style Edit and Trunk Club, I’m way more excited for the latter, not only for the brand and item variety but also the relationship I’m building with my stylist. Emilie seems cool, but what happened to Jan, Stitch Fix?

  1. I got the that weird white shirt too and was initially excited until i tried it on. I think the material is too stiff for bell sleeves. Overall, though, i really love my Stitch Fixes. They are able to find my sizes, and styles. This month i loved everything and kept it all so got the 25% off discount! There was a sheer burgundy sweater that sweeps almost to the knee that is amazing! Had something to wear when friends called – it was awesome. Can’t complain about 5 items for around $200.00.

  2. I just got my first fix today. It was a maternity fix. I actually liked all of the pieces except one stylistically but the prices were too high. Im generally pretty stingy with clothes but I thought it was time to elevate my wardrobe. Unfortunately I just can’t justify spending nearly $60 on a top that is thin fabric that looks just like every other top I see at Target, especially since maternity clothes are for short term wear. I only kept two pieces, one reasonably priced, and one because I needed a dress. I signed up for quarterly fixes just to supplement so I will go ahead and get at least one more. I might be too much of a cheapskate for this kind of thing.

    I agree that all of the pieces looked good on you except the white top.

  3. Mind. Blown. I had no idea you sew!!!! That’s sooo cool!! I look at the clothing sub reviews for sewing inspiration!!! (You can totally make a sweatshirt that looks just as awesome as this one for waaaaay less, but I know you know that now that I know you sew!!! LOL!!!) We allllll have a raglan pattern in our stash! 😀 😀 I love it when my various worlds collide!

    • Also, I bet you’ve been to the FabricMart store, huh?! I’m so jealous lol.

  4. No to the Pixley Jackie Collared Poplin Top. Everything else is fine.

    • Agree!! No to the white top…YES to everything else… 🙂

  5. oh my gosh, I ADORE that sweatshirt! Wish it wasn’t so pricey, that’s agreat piece.

    • Totally agree, Elise!

  6. Lol! “A fabric store chain” told me all I need to know! Comung from generations of home sewers, my mother would never let me shop at a “fabric store chain.”

    • Thanks, Steph! There are a few awesome local fabric stores in Pittsburgh, so I didn’t want to lump them into my opinion on this fabric 🙂
