Stitch Fix Review – January 2014

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

Stitch Fix Review - January 2014 Review

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!)

I love online clothing shopping, but I tend to stick to items I know I won’t likely need to return, so I don’t take many risks. What I like about Stitch Fix is that my stylist usually sends me a few items that are totally me, and one or two items that push me out of my comfort zone a little bit.

Stitch Fix Review - January 2014 Card

Each Stitch Fix comes with a card showing you styling ideas for your items. There’s also a letter from your stylist explaining why they picked each item and they usually include some suggestions too!

Stitch Fix Review - January 2014 Pants

Liverpool Anita Ponte Pant – Value $78

I’ve had great success with pants from Stitch Fix in the past, but these ones were a little loose in some areas, and I my approach to Stitch Fix is that if I’m paying full retail price for the items, they have to be the most flattering clothing items in my wardrobe. These pants don’t pass that test, so they will be getting returned!

Stitch Fix Review - January 2014 Tunic

41 Hawthorn Polly Abstract Chevron Tie-Waist Tunic – Value $48

This is one of those items I wouldn’t have picked out for myself, but it turns out I like it a lot! It’s the perfect length to wear with leggings, and the belt keeps it looking fitted! I think this one is a keeper!

Stitch Fix Review - January 2014 Sweater

RD Style Wilkes Colorblocked Raglan Sweater – Value $58

This sweater is very cozy, but SO not flattering on me. I can’t wear boxy pieces like this. (I’ll need to make a note on my account so I don’t get anymore!)

Stitch Fix Review - January 2014 Dress

41 Hawthorne Maddy Ponte Fit & Flare Dress – Value $78

This dress is gorgeous and so flattering. I think 50% of the dresses I own are fit and flare, (And the other 50% are maxis), so my stylist did a great job picking this dress! I would have definitely been more excited to get this dress at the beginning of fall, but it’s such a classic piece that I know I’ll wear it for a while.

Stitch Fix Review - January 2014 Cardigan

Moon Collection Alexander Aztec Knit Drape Front Cardigan – Value $68

This is my favorite item in the box! I have been obsessed with cozy draped cardigans this season, and this one is perfect for me. (And I can justify keeping it since I don’t have any other cardigans or sweaters with similar colors).

Verdict: The January 2014 Stitch Fix was a good box for me! I think I’ll end up keeping 3 items, and if the pants had fit perfectly I would have kept them too. I’m still waiting for a box though were all five items are a hit so I can take advantage of the 25% off deal!

What did you get in your Stitch Fix this month?

  1. Mine is on its way but I can tell already its going right back to them when I get it. They are sending me a $125 tie die maxi skirt and some other $100+ dollar items I never asked for. For $480, I can buy a lot more than 5 pieces of clothing with this stitch fix. So sad this month.

    • Do you know you can adjust your settings to match the prices you want right? I agree, some of these things sound so expensive but I placed my price range so nothing is over $100 per item. Ironically, they found me a pair of jeans that were exactly $100 and of course they didn’t fit. All I kept thinking was, there is no way I am buying a pair of pants that “kinda” fit for $100. Anyway, just thought I would mention that you can adjust the prices yourself.

  2. Man, you get all the good stuff. My fix is in the mail and I’m already super disappointed. I asked for pants and received no pants. 4 shirts and a maxi skirt. One of the shirts is sleeveless. I can’t even THINK about sleeveless shirts right now. The average temperature has been a whopping 18 degrees. They’ve also been completely ignoring my price preferences.

  3. What were the actual prices per item? 🙂

    • Sorry for the confusion, the value listed is the cost of each item if I decided to keep it. (Stitch Fix is a full-retail price service, but if you buy all 5 items you get a 25% off discount).

  4. i feel like the sweater would actually be really cute over the dress with some tights and short boots. 😉

  5. This is one of the best selections I’ve seen in a while.. I’d have such a hard time returning anything (well, unless it didn’t fit well)!

  6. Love the sweater and the tunic. Wish I had clothes shopping in my budget since I love everything you got.


  1. Stitch Fix Review – February 2014 | My Subscription Addiction - […] stylist included this piece since I loved the open cardigan in my last fix. It definitely is my style,…
