Stitch Fix Review – March 2014

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

Stitch Fix Review - March 2014 First Look

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!)

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

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 - March 2014 Cards

Each fix comes with styling suggestion cards and a letter from your stylist. In my experience, the letter is very detailed and shows that my stylist really looked into my preferences when putting my “fix” together.

Stitch Fix Review - March 2014 Purse

Urban Expressions Booker Fold Over Crossbody Bag with Zip Detail – Cost $54

I love the bright coral color of this bag, and the zipper detail is about as edgy as I can go, so this bag is a food fit for me.

Stitch Fix Review - March 2014 Lining

I love the lining print too! I’m debating about keeping this one – it really just depends on if I think I’ll wear it enough!

Stitch Fix Review - March 2014 Maxi

Papermoon Waters Diamond Print Maxi Dress – Cost $78

I was so happy to see a maxi (my favorite clothing item ever) in this box! Unfortunately this dress was a few inches too short on me, and I can’t justify paying $78 for a maxi that isn’t perfect, so I’m sad to say it goes back to Stitch Fix.

 Stitch Fix Review - March 2014 Jacket

Mavi Kalie Denim Jacket – Cost $98

This is probably the most well-made denim jacket I’ve ever tried on. Even though I just got a denim jacket from Golden Tote I’m thinking about keeping this one because I know I will get so much use out of it that I can justify the cost!

 Stitch Fix Review - March 2014 Dress

Angie Mathilde Cap Sleep Abstract Print Dress – Cost $58

Sadly, I can never pull off dresses like these. (This kind of waist band always ends up creating a blouse-y top that isn’t flattering for me).

 Stitch Fix Review - March 2014 Double Top

Ezra Ophelia Layered Tank and Stripe Knit Top – Cost $48

These tops are actually sewn together at the shoulders. I liked it on more than I thought I would, but because I can’t change up the layering with this top I think I’ll send it back since I don’t think I’ll wear it enough to keep it.

Verdict: This box was a mix of hits and near-hits for me. I think I’ll likely keep the denim jacket and the purse, and I’ll pass along my feedback on the rest of the items to my stylist. I am really happy to see that they started sending spring and summer items in March though! In the past I feel like they’ve been a little behind in the new seasons, and I will only pay full price for an item if I can wear it for an entire season!

What did you think of your Stitch Fix this month?

  1. I also received the coral purse and I totally love it. Like you have gotten the jean jacket that I love. I will say that all of the jeans I have gotten from stitch are amazing, nothing like I have ever even tried on before.
    I did have that weird $1000 blunder on my bank statement which was corrected.
    I keep getting sleeveless tops even though I have more than once asked not too. Most of the longer sleeve tops I gotten are totally sheer and see through. But they work nice now that it is getting warmer.
    I’ve been with stitchfix since Oct but I think I’m about to get burnt out for a while and may take a break. I’ve even gotten the same top twice. Lol

  2. I have purchased my entire Stitchfix for a few months now. I gave the stylist a LOT of feedback after my first fix was a total fail, and I continue to give feedback with each shipment. I don’t do Pinterest, but I’m very specific with my measurements and my needs and wants, and I also don’t want any accessories – clothes only, so I think that helps. Everything I have received has been excellent quality and pretty high-end feeling, with the exception of some medium-quality blouses that were priced accordingly. I enjoy the styling suggestions. I guess we have totally different tastes (or maybe bloggers get more random boxes), because my fix looks TOTALLY different versus yours! My only issue is that the more I buy, the higher dollar value items they send me, and I’m not dropping $350 next month unless something is freaking gold-plated!

  3. I decided to splurge on myself with a stitchfix box and it was horrible. I’m 26 and they sent me items with a style better fit for a much older woman. It was like they hadn’t looked at my pinterest board at all. Also there was an item with no other label on it except for a stitchfix label and they categorized it as an XS when it clearly was more like a M. $20 lost and that’s the last time I used that service. I really think they send out a large proportion of bargain bin items with the rare normal and stylish items that you may or may not ever receive in your box. Too risky to bet 20 bucks on.

  4. I got my 1st fix today! I got a bracelet that I did not like at all, a blouse that made me feel 20 years older, & a pair of skinny jeans that I loved but were unfortunately too big for my taste. I also got a maxi skirt that I absolutely adored, but it wasn’t perfect for me & I didn’t want to spend $58 on something that wasn’t perfect. I ended up keeping a pink (usually I dislike pink, but this was a good shade of pink) Dolman striped top that I saw on a lot of reviews. I’m glad she sent a colored Dolman top, because others I saw were grey & I own too much grey. I did see a green one, but I also own too much green haha
    Anyways, I asked for her to keep sending maxi items & jeans. I’m also going to request spring items. Can’t wait for April 30 for my next fix!

  5. I love the purse and the maxi dress…too bad the dress was a little short. My second Stitch Fix shipment was sent out today, and I should have it by next Tuesday. I peeked at my account to see what I’m being sent, and I’m a little disappointed by the descriptions…more Aztec print stuff (which I received in my last box and sent back), an $80 pair of skinny jeans, and a jean jacket (I just got the Golden Tote jacket, so I don’t need another one). Maybe I’ll pleasantly surprised, though…fingers crossed!

  6. Hmmm…I received my first fix today but I’m not really thrilled with anything they sent, especially since they sent me 2 sweaters, a button down long sleeve shirt and boyfriend jeans even though spring just began and its been a never ending heat wave in California (where I live.) I think I’m sending 4 out of my 5 items back. 🙁 I think a personal shopper with Nordstrom might yield better results but I think I’ll try this for another month and hope that this one was just a fluke.

    • Be sure to give your stylist lots of feedback on the items that you returned and if there are specific items you want them to avoid or to focus on, leave those comments on your profile as well. Hopefully, they will improve with feedback.

  7. My first fix is scheduled for April 16. I’m so excited! I really like what they sent to you and I’ve seen a few other reviews that looked great. I’m kinda picky–ok, I’ll admit it–I’m VERY picky. But I think being so picky has kept me in a (lack of) style rut. I have an open mind as long as there is no polyester involved!

  8. Well, it was bound to happen. I have subscribed. I need to stop! I don’t have all the money in the world like I’m acting like I do!

  9. I am due to get a fix in the next week. I have not been thrilled with many of the items I’ve received recently, but your fix give me some hope! My friend got that same bag in a bright green and it is super cute! In my profile told them that I was willing to pay more for items, but I didn’t want to get any of their “house” brands. I’ve found them to be very cheaply made and aren’t worth the price at all. Hopefully my next fix will be a step up!
