Stitch Fix Review – August 2015

This post may contain referral/affiliate links. 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)

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.


And this is my invoice sheet. It lists the prices per item and the discount I’d receive by keeping all 5 items. With the 25% discount and my $20 styling fee factored in, this box would cost me a total of $221.50 to keep – approximately $44.30 an item.


19 Cooper Rover Abstract Print Zip Back Blouse – Cost to Keep $58

I wasn’t crazy about this print when I pulled it out of the box, but I ended up liking it when I put it on. I like it, not love it though, so I’m not sure I can justify keeping it at the $58 price.

Here is the zippered back:

41Hawthorn Carla Crochet Detail Blouse – Cost to Keep $58

I have a theory that Stitch Fix sends lots of loose fitting blouses because they are more likely to fit well (and not be returned). This works fine for me in this case – I don’t have many red tops, and I like the detail on this top:



RD Style Tavo Cocoon Cardigan – Cost to Keep $64

This cardigan is SO cozy! I’m debating keeping it even though I own similar items. I like the detail on the shoulders too:



THML Ingrid Embroidered Halter Top – Cost to Keep $54

This is another top I’m debating about keeping – I like the neckline, and I don’t have anything similar in my closet.


Sweet Grey Jody Maxi Dress – Cost to Keep $88

I’m a little obsessed with maxis, so I’m glad my stylist took note of it and sent this! The material of this dress is really soft, and I really like the cutout detail in the back:


I can actually wear a normal bra with this back! I really want to keep this dress!

Verdict: This is one of the best boxes I’ve received in my subscription – and the first time I’m debating keeping all five items to get the 25% off discount.

What do you think of Stitch Fix? Have you received any boxes that you ended up keeping entirely for the 25% discount?

  1. Just went to update my style profile on stitch fix – and they have added questions about shoes!!!! For example, what is your shoe size & under the never send section they have added booties, flats, heels, sandals, etc. I think this means they are expanding to shoes too!!! I am so excited!

  2. I would love to try that maxi dress. Hopefully the cut-outs in the back aren’t too loose or low that people standing beside you can peek down into your dress!! The cocoon sweater is nice too but I bought a similar one last weekend at Old Navy. I reactivated my account today and asked to have maxi dress added to my fix to try. I never had any luck getting the specific pieces I requested in the past which is one of the main reasons I deactivated my account. Hopefully their purchasing/supply volumes have improved over the past few months.

  3. I received a dress in one of my fixes that looked just like that tank by THML. It’s such a unique design, I didn’t keep it but it was cute! I love that cardigan as well, I’m going to request a new one in my next fix. I love the ones they send, they are so comfortable and cute!

  4. I really like the cardigan and the embroidered halter and the back on the maxi is so cute! This past fix for me was the first time I returned more than I kept and only the second time I didn’t keep the whole box. I didn’t dislike any of the pieces but I was trying to be picky since my July Golden Tote came in the same day and I was feeling a bit guilty having so many new things at once! 😀

  5. Funny, I return every single loose blouse they send me since I’m petite and they all look horrible on me. I’m still hoping they catch on!

    • Me too! They never fit me properly. I finally wrote a note to my stylist requesting no more loose fitting blouses. I hope my next fix will have more form fitting clothing!

    • Me too! I keep sending the same feedback: I hate loose tops, because I have big boobs, so the fabric drapes straight down from there like a tent. Stop sending me loose tops! I would have quit already if not for one stylist who sends me great stuff…it seems like every once in a while, she must be on vacation when they do my Fix, and I get the same crap again, as if they’re not even reading my case history. I have just about given up on Stitch Fix.

      • Lol about the big boobies. I’m in the same boat sporting a set of DDs. Loose blouses make me look like I’m wearing maternity clothes. The last thing I want to hear is “when are you due?” Especially since the rest of me is pretty slim/petite.

  6. I love that maxi dress! My fix is scheduled to arrive tomorrow. I am heading to Thailand at the end of the month and mentioned that and requested clothes for the trip that would work in warm, humid weather. Fingers crossed that they come through with some amazing stuff.

  7. Love that Thml embroidered tank!

    • Me too! It’s SO cute.

  8. i like the new background!

    • Thanks! We just moved and I’m trying to figure out where to take pictures – I ended up hauling the dress form outside 🙂

      • I was like did Liz hire a new writer who is also obsessed with maxis? No way.

        • hehe 🙂

      • My favorites are the crochet detail blouse and the cardigan.

        Can’t beat the natural light outside. Surely you wouldn’t mind hauling that dress form outside every time you want to review clothing? 🙂

        • Definitely wouldn’t mind – need to think of something else though when it starts snowing! 🙂

          • Snow would be an interesting twist!
