Stitch Fix Review – November 2013

Stitch Fix Review - November 2013

Stitch Fix is a monthly clothing subscription service for women. For $20 they send you 5 items based on your size and style preferences. The $20 fee covers shipping and returns (only pay for the items you keep), and if you keep any items the $20 stylist fee is deducted from the item cost!

I’ve been subscribing to Stitch Fix for a few months now, and while I haven’t kept every item, I have found some amazing wardrobe pieces through this service – I’m definitely a fan!

Caramela Mabel Abstract Print Shift Dress – $58

(Stitch fix includes styling suggestion cards with each garment).

Stitch Fix Review - November 2013

This dress wasn’t for me. I wasn’t crazy about the print and I never wear shift dresses – they always look boxy and unflattering on me!

Tart Yusuf Embellished Shoulder Striped Top – $58

Stitch Fix Review - November 2013

I liked this top more than I thought I would when I put it on. I’m not sure how I feel about the shoulder pads though, and I don’t know how often I’d wear it, so I decided to send this top back too. (My approach to Stitch Fix is that I must absolutely love any item I keep since I’m paying full price for the items).

Aryeh Valeria Solid Shift Dress – $69

Stitch Fix Review - November 2013

Another shift dress – sadly this one had to go back too. It also seemed to be too big overall. FYI – each month you have the opportunity to give feedback on the items you received – I left a note to never get another shift dress – only fitted dresses!


Tulle Kirin Double Breasted Botton-Up Cardigan – $78

Stitch Fix Review - November 2013

Of course I had to fall in love with the most expensive item in this box! I love the festive colors of this cardigan, and it’s surprisingly fitted and flattering for such a heavy knit sweater.

This one’s a keeper!

Renee C Taber Foldover 3/4 Sleeve Sweater – $58

Stitch Fix Review - November 2013

I love the oatmeal colors of this sweater, but unfortunately the neckline wasn’t working for me.

Verdict: This wasn’t my favorite Stitch Fix, but I did get a great sweater out of it, so I’m still happy with this month’s fix. Hopefully my December Stitch Fix will include some fitted holiday-party dresses!

  1. Have you ever not received one of the items on the card? I got my first box today and a pair of black skinny jeans was supposed to be in my box but wasn’t. I was looking forward to them when I looked at my card and wanted to try them with 2 tops included (incidentally, those tops did not look good with denim imho and I own not black jeans at all). I emailed them to see if I could get those jeans and if they’d hold off till then for me to send it back, otherwise I will be returning 2/4 items I got. Being as I got my box 2 days before Thanksgiving, I don’t really have time to mess with wondering and didn’t know if you’d experienced anything like this or know of anyone who has?

    • I haven’t had that happen to me, but I have had to contact their customer care, and they emailed me back pretty quickly. Hopefully they can help you!

  2. Hi. i have a giftcard for 40 value for 24.99 posted on ebay. look it up! for those interested you do not have to be a new customer..20 towards styling fee and 20 towards any purchase. I cannot use and it was included in my last month’s popsugar box!

  3. Came to read about your blush beauty box (I didn’t get one this month) and got side tracked by your stitch fix review! I am so picky with drape, cut, texture, length, neckline and color that I doubt Stitch fix would add much value to my life. I just know what I like. I do like the sweater you kept. I also like the pattern on the first shift dress-but I am with you. I need princess or empire cuts, not shift dresses (damn Great Gatsby!).

  4. I loved my Stitch Fix this month. I never thought I’d actually keep everything but i will this time. I do have to say, the clothes are overpriced.

    For instance, I actually bought that striped shirt from Tart you received off of Groupon in June/July for less than $20, but Stitch fix lists the price at $54? I washed it three times before the embellishments came off of the shoulders. I still wore it cause it was a nice shirt, but the dye on the stripes is actually running into the white lines under my arms now. It’s a cheaply made shirt, be glad you didn’t waste your money.

  5. I got my fix last week and it was absolutely terrible. Nothing was even close to working, and the items were completely overpriced for what they were. I was really disappointed since my first fix was really great. (I kept 4 of the 5 pieces from that fix and wear them all the time.) I decided to try again next month in hopes that things get better. But if they don’t I definitely won’t be scheduling again.

  6. What is the Holiday Kit like? Anything good in it?

    • It had a recipe, and a card you could fill out if you wanted to gift a Stitch Fix subscription.

      • Really? That’s it? How disappointing. They made it seem like it would be something worthwhile.

      • Oh – one more thing I just remembered – a $50 “giftcard” to Naked Wines. (Not a real giftcard – you have to spend money to use it).
