Stitch Fix Subscription Box Review – April 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).

STITCH FIX APRIL 2016 - info 1

Each box comes with cards with styling suggestions for every piece, plus a little note 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 $287.50 to keep everything –$57.50 per item.

This is the first month that Stitch Fix is also offering shoes! I was so excited about this, but they only offer sizes 6-10, and I wear 11. They do have half sizes, though.

Crescent Rita Embroidered Tunic – Cost to Keep: $58

I really like this tunic – the cut and fit is fantastic for me, and I like the fabric. However, I’m not a huge fan of embroidery accents (or crochet – but both are in right now). If I liked everything in my box, I’d keep this. $58 is too much for me to spend on something I just don’t think I’ll reach for.

Tart Kaylie French Terry Blazer – Cost to Keep: $128

I was happy to see this blazer because I had actually pinned it! It’s incredible, and crazy soft and comfortable. It’s an expensive-feeling weight and it fits me well. Unfortunately, I don’t think I can justify the price tag. If I worked outside the home or needed a blazer more often than just as an occasional extra layer to an outfit, I totally would invest in it.

Kut from the Kloth Catherine Boyfriend Jean – Cost to Keep: $88

These boyfriend jeans are amazing. They fit great and feel comfortable. The only problem is… I already own these! I bought them from TrendSend a couple months ago. I have to at least give my stylist credit for hitting the nail on the head though. I’d totally buy these again if I didn’t already have a pair.

Alice Blue Lucio Henley Blouse – Cost to Keep: $48

This is another item I had pinned! This floral top is super pretty, and the cut is flattering. However, the pink is a very bright neon pink in person (it doesn’t show up as brightly in the photo), and I’m not a huge fan of sheer layers I need a cami under. I’m debating keeping it,

Gentle Fawn Tressie Shirt Dress – Cost to Keep: $88

I want to love this dress so badly. The floral is pretty, it’s fully lined, comfortable, and easy to wear, but I just don’t feel like the shape/design is doing me any favors – especially the crochet bib in the front. I think I might be too big in the chest for this to be very flattering. I think this dress would look amazing on someone with a smaller bust.

(FYI the hem isn’t asymmetrical – it’s just the wind blowing it/the way I’m standing that might make it look that way in the photo.)

Verdict: This month’s fix wasn’t as good as last month’s for me, but it was still great! I wish I knew I’d need the blazer enough to invest in it, the jeans I already had, the dress has some slight fit issues on my figure, I liked the tunic okay, and I think I might keep the floral top. So, all in all, I was pretty happy with it – there were just small caveats with most of the items that kept me from keeping them.

  1. My box was a bust this time – unfortunately I didn’t like even one thing, so I’m going to lose the styling fee. I was sent a couple of items that I specified to not send me (all shirts were sleeve less; wide legged pants that were made for someone who is 6 inches taller than me). I really feel like they didn’t look at my profile. This is my fourth fix, and I’m hoping it’s just a fluke as all of the prior fixes felt like they really focused on my profile (and making my Pinterest page really helped as well).

  2. I’m definitely going to agree with you on that last dress. It kinda reminds me of a granny nightgown. Love that floral blouse, though.

  3. Have you tries the Benson blazer? It looks a lot like the one you got and is under $80. FYI. I got it in a large and I usually wear medium tops. My stylist automatically sized it up for me, so it must run a little small. I love the pink tunic on you, but I totally agree that if you’re not going to reach for it, it’s not worth keeping. Pretty box overall!

  4. I’ve had nothing but horrific boxes the past 4 times. I’m done with Stitch Fix!!! They keep sending me things that are on my “no” list and nothing from my “yes” list or Pinterest. I’ve complained and I have tried to be patient but when you ask for something sexy and romantic for your anniversary and get pants that look like dickies. I was devastated and didn’t have a back-up, the box arrived an hour before our dinner reservations and we just cancelled everything, it was just too late to find anything else.

  5. I love that pink tunic top! I can’t seem to find any info about Crescent online though. I wonder if they are exclusive to Stitch Fix?

  6. I actually think that the dress looks great on you without the belt!

    • Ditto that! I was thinking the same – it’s adorable without the belt.

      • I agree! It looks great on you, but not with the belt.

    • Completely agree! Keep the dress! Ditch the floral top. It’s not very youthful. And maybe consider keeping the tunic. That color and shape looks great on you.

  7. Oooh love your box! Wish I got some of those! I got my first box this month and it had super cute patterned shorts, a pair of taupe sandals, white jeans, a pink blouse and a maxi dress. The jeans didn’t fit and the pink blouse had laser cut designs that were looking too flimsy. Other than that I was pretty happy with the selections!

  8. It all looked really great on you!! ! I love the tunic top on you, too! Gave you a very hour glass figure!!
