Stitch Fix Subscription Box Review – January 2016
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 $182.50 to keep everything – approximately $36.5 an item. I’m really happy to see lower price points for Stitch Fix with this box!
41Hawthorne McQue Solid Lace Sleeve Blouse – Cost to Keep: $48
I like this top, especially the color. But it was just a bit too tight in the bust and a tad short on me.
Papermoon Amedeo Tulip Sleeve Knit Top – Cost to Keep: $48
This top was too tight, and I’m not a huge fan of the cap sleeves. Those two factors don’t play well together, and they made the arm holes stretch too big as well. This one’s going back.
Market & Spruce Mainy Pullover Sweater – Cost to keep: $68
I love a good sweater (and polka dots), and this sweater is not bad! I like it, but I have so many sweaters that I feel are more flattering/better colors on me than this one, so I won’t be keeping this.
41Hawthorn Lizzy Colorblock Striped Sweater – Cost to Keep: $68
This is a great sweater! I really like the colors, stripes, and fit. The sleeves and torso are nice and long on me, and it’s quite comfortable. A keeper!
Octavia Madera Fold-Over Clutch – Cost to Keep: $38
This pewter-colored, fold-over clutch is nice, but just not my style. It does have a shoulder strap, too, by the way. More detail photos below.
For a fold-over clutch, I really like all the pockets it has. It has four pockets (2 zippered).
The pockets are all lined in a really pretty print, too. It’s a nice bag, all in all!
Verdict: All in all, this fix was okay. I would have really liked if the fit was a little better for me, but I’m happy to have an awesome new sweater! And I know I can give my stylist feedback about sizing up for tighter-fitting items.
