Stitch Fix Review – July 2015

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


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).


The Subscription Box: Stitch Fix

The Cost: $20 Styling fee (Pay for whatever items you keep minus the $20 credit)

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).


And this is my invoice sheet. It lists the prices per item and the discount I’d receive by keeping all 5 items.


Ezra Scarlett Striped Dress – Cost to Keep $58

I like that this dress is a nice basic, but has enough going on to keep it interesting. The torso part of the dress didn’t fit as well as I would have liked though, so it is going back.


Fun2Fun Torrance Lace Blouse – Cost to Keep $38

This might be my favorite item in the box this month. I love the diagonal lace detail – and it’s a reasonable price too!


Pixley Zipper Detail Top – Cost to Keep $54

Every time Stitch Fix sends me a green top in this shade I end up keeping it – I guess it works well with my skin tone! I like the mesh details on the straps too.


Loveappella Lyndrel Knit Top – Cost to Keep $48

This top is so soft, and it has just a slight hi-low hem. $48 is on the high-end for me for a basic tee, but then again I end up wearing basics more than anything else, so maybe those are the pieces I should be spending money on!


41Hawthorn Lisbon Stud Detail Blouse – Cost to Keep $58

This top was a little too bold and billowy for me! I had a feeling it wasn’t going to work when I pulled it out of the box, and I confirmed that when I tried it on!

Verdict: This was a pretty good Stitch Fix for me. The only piece that seemed out of place is the last top, and if it had been a different item, and the dress had fit better, I would have kept all 5 pieces.

Sometimes Stitch Fix can be hit or miss for me, but this box is mostly a hit. What do you think of Stitch Fix?

  1. What happened to the coupon code “limitedtime” that was just sent out in your email? It’s saying it’s invalid on Stitch Fix’s website.

    • The coupon doesn’t seem to be working right now, so I emailed StitchFix about it. (I took down the post for now until the coupon is actually working). Sorry about the confusion!

  2. I have been a longtime subscriber to Stitch Fix. The last several boxes are a huge miss for me. The one I just received the items were so off and of low quality I did not bother to try anything on. I have purchased many things from them in the past and there has been a downward shift in style variety.

  3. My July box also contained 2 striped tops. I kept one of them, but I noticed that they keep sending me striped tops b/c apparently I always keep them. Same with little gold necklaces (which I also got and kept this month). I guess they know what I like, but I wish they would provide some more variety…

  4. i guess I am still struggling to understand the value here. I can get much better deals from banana republic during sales or dept stores. It’s not like this stuff is super original. Can someone explain what is the up side to this service?

    • I’ve subbed to SF in the past. I guess the value is getting clothes delivered to your door that you can try on at home with pieces you already own. You have 3 days to decide (and not get charged for anything). So you don’t have to leave the house and you don’t have to pay upfront.

      Another value SF is selling is a stylist. Supposedly they follow you on Pinterest and listen to your comments and send styles specifically tailored to your tastes. I found it to be hit and miss. I have SF items hanging in my closet that I’m not sure why I bought and I never wear. I do have a few items that I love, too (but paid more than I would’ve if shopping in a retail store).

      You’re paying more for curation and convenience.

  5. My July box was a hit! I kept all five items – maxi dress, statement necklace, peasant embroidered tank, red and white striped top for the 4th and a gauzy floral blouse. Somehow these boxes alwatys come just when I need them. I get a monthly box since last September and have only had one or two “dud” boxes where I kept just one item. At this point I almost exclusively buying clothes from Stitchfix with just occasional buys from Nordstrom on the side. If I could set up my whole life to buy by subscription, I just might do it 🙂

  6. I love that black tank as well!! Wish I would’ve got it!!

  7. Liz I love that coral top if you want to out right sell it. What size is it? I have a $20 stitch fix code too if it would work. For you, you are welcome to it.

    • Sorry – I sent it back! 🙁

      Maybe try requesting the top in your next fix though?

  8. It’s hit or miss for me. It has been a little while since I have bought a piece. There has been nothing lately that I have loved and wanted to keep.

  9. After trying them for three boxes, I am done with them. I purchased three tops from the three boxes. I am now trying to sell one on eBay since it really is just meh, and my favorite one shrunk down to unwearable when I washed it following the care instructions. I emailed about it but they have not responded. I’m thankful I didn’t waste too much money on Stitch Fix – the pieces are fairly low quality.
