Stitch Fix Review - October 2013

Stitch Fix is a monthly stylist-service clothing subscription for women. Every month your stylist sends you a box of 5 clothing and accessory items based on your size and style preferences. I first signed up for Stitch Fix a few months ago, and I love it! The clothes are great quality, you can pick what price-point you want for the items, and there is free shipping and free returns, so you only pay for whichever items you pick. (And if you keep all 5 items, you get a 25% discount on the entire order!)

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

Stitch Fix Review - October 2013

41 Hawthorn Multi Color Chevron Infinity Scarf – Value $34

I was thrilled when I saw this print in the box and immediately starting unraveling it in hopes that it would be a circle scarf! I lucked out – this was a keeper!

41 Hawthorn Herringbone Vest with Black Piping – Value $68

At first I thought I wouldn’t like this vest, but then I decided it might be a good idea to own at least one vest that isn’t made of faux fur, so I tried it on. And then I fell in love with it. Another keeper!

Mystree Gareth Open Draped Sweater Jacket – Value $98

This sweater was so cozy! I love the look of it, but I just wish it had a button or zipper to close it. I love the open look, but wanted a little more versatility in this piece for the price.

I sadly put this one back in the pre-paid return envelope.

19 Cooper Cathleen Split-Neck Tulip Sleeve Blouse – Value $68

I normally never wear blouses, so this was another item I kind of assumed I’d be returning before I even tried it on.

It even looks a little boxy in the picture Stitch Fix included, but it turns out the cut is super flattering on. I couldn’t part with this blouse!

Ezra Belted Floral Print Dress – Value $68

Stitch Fix Review - October 2013

If I had liked this dress more, I probably would have talked myself into keeping the entire box to save 25%, but it just was too big in the top.

Verdict: I think my Stitch Fixes are getting better and better! I love my three items from this month’s box, and I’m even getting better at getting my return envelope to the post office in time (you have 3 business days). (I’m really bad at getting to the post office).

Have you signed up for Stitch Fix yet? What did you get in your October box?

  1. I just got my second stitch fix as well. The first one was just ok. I kept a blouse and a necklace. The second one was amazing! I got 5 items that can all be coordinated with each other which I love. I got a chunky teal cardigan, a teal and navy stripe v neck blouse, stretch navy skinny jeans, a gray top that covers midsection well, and a long chunky forest green infinity scarf.

    One problem – the navy shirt was too small. If I got all 5 items there was a $90 discount, which covered the price of the shirt and the scarf alone so I really wanted to buy all and get the discount. I dropped them a note and they said, it is uncommon for this to happen but they happened to have the shirt in the next size! The process is for me to check out paying for the whole box and ship back the blouse. They will exchange it for the larger one when received and it is a final sale. So wanted to pass this option if someone else gets a wrong size but loves the piece. Also I put tons of photos in Pinterest and my stylist mentioned she reviewed that so I highly recommend putting one of those together so she gets an overall view of your style

  2. Cute stuff! I lovelove that scarf + vest! I get my first StitchFix next month + I can’t wait!
