Stitch Fix Review – August 2014
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!
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
Each box comes with cards with styling suggestions for every piece, plus a letter from your stylist. (FYI – my box is all dresses per my request. I’ll probably switch up my preferences this coming month for fall though.)
Renee C Striped Maxi Dress – Cost to Keep $54
I loved everything about this dress except the fit! (It was too tight in the hips, and also dropped waist styles are never flattering on my body type!) This one immediately went in the pre-paid return envelope after I tried it on!
Market and Spruce Colorblock Maxi Dress – Cost to Keep $88
I always try on the clothing before I look at the invoice so that I’m making my decisions purely on if I love a how a piece looks on me – not on the price, and unfortunately I fell in love with the most expensive item in the box! I think this one is a keeper!
Kut From The Kloth Braided Maxi Dress – Cost to Keep $78
(I should mention that I requested lots of maxi dresses in my fix, so that’s why there are three this month!) I liked the color of this dress, but it’s a little too loose and drape-y for my taste – it’s going back.
Mystree Abstract Printed Dress – Cost to Keep $54
I think this one is another keeper! I really like the print and colors, and I think I can transition this piece to fall with some leggings and a cardigan!
41Hawthorn Callafia Print Wrap Dress – Cost to Keep $68
The silhouette of this dress is very flattering (I love wrap-dresses), but the print and the length make it feel a little too formal for me. (I had requested only laid-back casual looks in my style profile, and I felt like this dress didn’t match up with my requests). It’s going back because I already have a ton of formal dresses in my closet that still have tags on them, and I don’t need anymore!
Verdict: I found two dresses I really liked with this subscription, and two near-hits so I’m happy with this Stitch Fix – but I’m still waiting on the day when I love all 5 items and can use the 25% discount offer!
