Stitch Fix Review – September 2014

This post may contain referral/affiliate links. If you buy something, MSA may earn a commission. Read the full disclosure.

Stitch Fix Review – September

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!

My Subscription Addiction pays for this subscription. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).

Stitch Fix Review – September 2014 Cards

Each box comes with cards with styling suggestions for every piece, plus a letter from your stylist. (For reference, I requested casual items with a Free People look).

Stitch Fix Review – September 2014 Jacket

Market and Spruce French Terry Moto Jacket – Cost to Keep $68

I absolutely love this jacket and was expecting it to be a very expensive cost-to-keep item – so I was surprised it’s only $68! The bottom of this jacket flares out a little more than I would like though, so I’m debating about keeping it.

Stitch Fix Review – September 2014 Tank

Collective Concepts Sandro Abstract Dot Print Racerback Tank – Cost to Keep $58

This tank on the other hand is more than I would like to spend on a basic printed top. It’s fine – but it’s not a show stopper for the price. It goes back in the pre-paid envelope!

Stitch Fix Review – September 2014 Jeams

Mavi Gold Bennie Straight Leg Jean – Cost to Keep $138

If you are looking for pants/jeans and want to be able to try them on at home, I highly recommend Stitch Fix. This pair fit me perfectly, and I love the pants and jeans I’ve received from them in the past as well. I’m OK with paying a premium for a quality well-fitting pair of jeans, so I think I’ll be keeping these. (I know I’ll wear them enough to justify it!)

Now I have to see if Mavi Gold carries high-waisted jeans too…

Stitch Fix Review – September 2014 Kimono

Papermoon Yorba Abstract Floral Print Kimono – Cost to Keep $48

I guess kimonos are having a moment this season! I would keep this one, but I just got a very similar kimono in the August Golden Tote!

Stitch Fix Review – September 2014 Orange

Kut from the Kloth Marquis Heathered V-Neck Dolman Sweater – Cost to Keep $58

This sweater was so big, orange and intimidating when I first pulled it out of the box! It looks pretty boxy on the mannequin too, but it was surprisingly flattering when I put it on – and so cozy too. I’m thinking of keeping this and pairing it with skinny jeans.

Verdict: I think this box is the closest I’ve ever come to keeping all 5 items! (If I kept all it would save me $87.50 with the discount). I’m still picking which items I’m definitely keeping, but I’m happy with this box. The look is what I requested – casual. And the most structured item is made with a very informal material, so it works too.

Do you subscribe to Stitch Fix? What do you think of the styling – does it meet your requests?

  1. Mine was a huge hit this month. I actually kept all 5 items…a dress, jacket, blouse, necklace, and beautiful scarf. I had a friend help make the decisions and agreed that everything was a must keep.

  2. I finally quit stitch fix, it just didn’t suit me in terms of age-appropriateness, styles, fits, and cuts.

  3. Can you expand on what you’ve put down in your style profile? I always love your fixes and find that mine aren’t really up to par with my style.

  4. I just love the jacket. So much so, I requested it in my fix. Then they go and send me a horizontal striped version. I even had asked if they had it in black or darker that would be great. Who in their right mind would want it in horizontal stripes? How insanely disappointing. But what is bothering me even more is why is it $74 for me to keep and $68 for you? There really can’t be a mark up on horizontal stripes?!?!?

  5. LOVE LOVE LOVE the Kimono!!

  6. Sometimes I think they kinda ignore my requests and just go with what they want to stick in the box. I had a gorgeous maroon cardigan that was so incredibly cozy and soft. Perfect for my crazy Colorado fall weather. BUT it was way too big. Ug. Mine are always either a hit or miss. I wish they’d stick to the same stylist for you if you like them. I think they would get to know you better if they did that.

  7. I would totally buy that moto from you if you keep the whole box.

  8. I received a pair of Mavi jeans in my August Stitch Fix box and absolutely loved them as well. I am so picky about my jeans that I was SHOCKED how well they fit me (and I’m a tall gal so its hard to find a long inseam). What I did learn is they don’t make a high rise, but they make a mid rise inseam, which is good and modest enough. I do like your selections though, and that jacket on top is super cute (not something I would’ve picked out at the store, but likely something I would’ve kept in my fix).

  9. Liz,
    That jacket fab, and I think you need to keep it. Lol!

  10. You always seem to have such good luck with your fixes! I’ve had five total, and absolutely three of them! The other two (my first one and my most recent one), though, were spot-on. I like being surprised with their picks, but I hate being let down! We’ll see how my box next month goes…

  11. I love what they sent you this month. I subscribe to Stitch Fix and used to really love it but lately I’ve been disappointed. I comment on every item I receive, I updated my profile and I even created a Pinterest board, but my August box was absolutely awful. Fingers crossed I get your stylist next month and fall back in love with Stitch Fix!!

  12. Great fall-transition Fix! I’m on #8 and have yet to keep everything, but still hopeful…just waiting for that one perfect shipment & then will immediately request that stylist permanently.

  13. I do subscribe to Stitch Fix. I made a Pinterest board, as they suggested, of clothes I like. Their clothing choices were fine, I had asked for clothes for a casual business lunch. I received a long patterned skirt, a solid navy blue top, a 3/4 sleeve blouse, a dress, and a greenish/black top.

    I kept the skirt, the navy blue top, and the blouse, paid $126 after my $20 credit. The dress didn’t fit, the other top wasn’t a good color for me.

    I chose the every other month plan, so my next one will be in October.
