Stitch Fix Review – February 2015

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

Stitch Fix Review – February 2015 Box

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 – February 2015 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 – February 2015 Blue Top

Honey Punch Raglan Lace Detail Top – Cost to Keep $58

This is one of those tops that at first glance didn’t seem too special to me, but when I tried it on I was impressed with how beautifully it draped. (It’s pretty rare to find a loose fitting top that is also flattering, so I’m thinking I will keep this one).

Stitch Fix Review – February 2015 Blouse

Daniel Rainn V-Neck 3/4 Sleeve Solid Blouse – Value $68

I was kind of disappointed to see this top was selected for me. It’s a very classic top, but I don’t think it really matches the style I was going for with my requests for this subscription. Trying it on didn’t change my mind either. This top is going back.

Stitch Fix Review – February 2015 Dress

Kensie Humphrey Streak Print Dress – Cost to Keep $88

This is hands down my favorite item in the box. I has an a-line cut so it flares out a bit, but the draping is perfect so it doesn’t make me look bigger than I am! The fabric is so soft too. Since I’ll wear it with leggings/tights, I’ll probably try to shrink it an inch or two in length through the laundry.

This dress is a definite keeper!

Stitch Fix Review – February 2015 Vest

Look By M Halden Draped Front Sleeveless Cardigan – Cost to Keep $54

This is a cozy black knit sweater vest. I don’t have anything like it, and I love vests, but I just don’t want to pay full price for any winter clothing after Christmas, so I’m sending this one back.

Stitch Fix Review – February 2015 White Top

Sanctuary Rennes Button Front Top – Cost to Keep $68

At first look, I didn’t think this looked like my style at all, but after trying it on I can definitely see myself wearing it with skinny jeans. The only issue is I’m not IN LOVE with it – and I don’t want to pay full price for any clothing piece I’m not pretty much obsessed with.

Verdict: I’m keeping the dress and probably the blue raglan lace top – both of the pieces are interesting, easy to wear and flattering – which means I’ll reach for them again and again when picking out what to wear. I can justify paying full-price for that! If I had kept all 5 items, my total would have been $237 (that includes the 25% discount for buying all 5 pieces, and deducting the $20 styling fee).

I think I’m going to try changing up my style profile each month to push myself out of my clothing comfort zone.

  1. $88 dress* Whoops.

  2. Really liked your Kensie dress, Liz! I got my February box last week and finally had the chance to go through it/post pictures this weekend. They sent me a really cute cargo vest that, though it wasn’t in the requested beige, still ended up being a win. There were a few other items that were nice but my rule with Stitch Fix is that if I’m still feeling on the fence by the time I’ve tried everything on/written up my post then back it goes.

  3. They have awesome customer service. The notebook for Christmas, the canvas tote bag for my birthday, and the newpoints program. Love it.

  4. I was curious if you are billed for all the items initially when they ship them to you and then refunded when you return unwanted items or if you are only billed for what you keep? It seems like a hassle to have to wait for a refund.

    • Nope – you’re only billed the $20 styling fee. 🙂

  5. I got my first fix in yesterday and I am loving this! I got skinny jeans that fit like a glove, a really cute THML Knit Top, a super comfy casual thermal dress, a dressy blouse with a keyhole cut in the front, and a funky Metal Oval Layered Necklace. In my note I had stated that I have a hard time finding jeans, I wanted cute sweater dress and flowy options for weekend wear, and needed tops that worked for my corporate office job – they definitely delivered. I can’t wait to do this again!

  6. They sent me the Daniel Rainn V-Neck 3/4 Sleeve Solid Blouse as well. I also was not a fan, and I wasn’t sure why they sent it!

  7. I finally caved and signed up for this. I’m always a bit more anxious about clothing subscription boxes but we’ll see how it goes. I’ve lost a lot of weight in the last year so I’m hoping this will help me liven up my wardrobe (which is basically jeans, tanks, tees and yoga pants at this point). But I work from home so I don’t want anything too fancy. We’ll see how this goes! Thanks for the reviews. 🙂

  8. I love the blue top with the lace on the sleeve – what does it look like from the back? Also, how do you know what you are being sent? It’s still a surprise each month for me as I don’t know how to check to see what’s coming and am not sure I want to. I love the surprise!

  9. I wish stitch fix would to a mystery/surprise bag a la golden tote or modcloth! I could totally see that going over really well. I would definitely go for that…Stitch Fix, hope you are reading this! : )

    • Yes!

  10. I received shipping notification for my latest fix today and I’m really excited to get it. This time I tried something different and told them what was on my fashion wish list: leopard calf hair flats, Celine bag, black leather moto jacket, denim cutoff shorts, chunky knit cardigan, Clare V crossbody (note: I know that there is no way Stitch Fix would ever send me a Celine bag but I like that style). And I just checked my checkout page after I received shipping notification and they definitely sent me a leather moto jacket and a cardigan. 🙂 I’m so excited to see if I love what they sent me! I think I’ll be updating my comments with them every month to let them know what I want most to update my wardrobe.

  11. I LOVE that dress. I’m a new subscriber to Stitch Fix, thanks to you and discovering your website through Pinterest. 🙂 Was happy with everything in my first fix except the jewelry, but it was cheaper to keep it. I’m addicted. I love having someone else dress me. Haha I wish i could get 2 fixes a month. It’s like Christmas! Have you tried Daily Look yet?

    • Lisa,
      After reading your comment, I headed over to Daily Look. I used to get their daily emails, but it got to be too much. They’re offering three months with no styling fee! I signed up. I’m scared that the items are going to be too pricy for me. With no risk to check it out, I figured now is a good time to see.
      I will say they totally ripped off Stitch Fix’s profiling system, which gives me little faith in their ability to match to my personality. If they’d just send me items on my Pinterest board I’d be a happy girl!
      Lisa, do you subscribe to Daily Look’s Elite box? If so, how has it worked out for you?

      • I haven.’t signed up yet. I get too many emails from them too. Haha I am considering signing up just to see, but I dont think their clothes look as nice quality as Stitch Fix. I can always return though so I still may. If you do, reply back your experience and I will too.

        • What a great idea! That sounds like fun! I signed up earlier today. My box will arrive the 23rd. They send more items than SF. I also thought SF’s quality was hit and miss. Thanks to them I now have a fondness for Kut from the Kloth jeans. Half of what I bought from SF I don’t wear.

        • Plus, Stitch Fix would send out of season pieces and charge full price for them.
