Stitch Fix Subscription Box Review – September 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

Keep Track of Your Subscriptions: Add this box to your subscription list or wishlist!


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 $196.75 to keep everything –$39.35 per item.


Colette Dorada Faux Suede Raglan Knit Top – Cost to Keep: $37

This top combines 2 things I generally don’t wear: raglan tops and faux suede. The faux suede is the material for the sleeves. I love the pretty color of the sleeves but I just don’t think I like the top overall. Even though it fits well, something about this top makes me feel like it’s just not flattering to my torso, especially, I think, because the lighter color is the bodice material.

Liverpool Denise 4-Way Stretch Bootcut Jean – Cost to Keep: $88

Oh, Liverpool. How I love thee. These fit fantastically, are a fabulous dark wash (my jean love language), have a nice high rise, and are super long! (I’m tip-toeing a little for the photo because my booties are still packed away from moving at the beginning of summer). I’ve found that I fall hard and fast for good jeans from subscription boxes, so I’m really tempted to keep these. I just don’t wear heels often anymore since they make toddler-chasing much more difficult, and in the winter I generally wear boots that I tuck skinnies or leggings into. Since these jeans are far too long to wear with flats, I’ll have to really think about these.

RD Style Warren Airy Knit Cocoon Cardigan – Cost to Keep: $58

Even though this cardigan is a gorgeous wine shade and fits well, I just think the doleman-esque sleeves/shape isn’t one I’ll reach for much. I think this is a great sweater, just not for my personal wardrobe. This is going back.


Kut from the Kloth Benter Mixed Material Top – Cost to Keep: $58

KFTK is another brand I really love thanks to subscriptions, but I haven’t tried any tops from them before. This one is fantastic. The sleeves are a buttery knit and I love the maroon floral print of the main section. The floral material goes all the way around, too, which I especially appreciate over just a front panel. This fits great and is super comfortable. This is also a situation in which I don’t mind/actually like the different material/color sleeves. I don’t know if I can resist keeping this top!

Loveappella Wilson Contrast Sleeve Knit Top – Cost to keep: $48

I feel like I may sound a little like a broken record, but Loveappella is another brand that I’ve had an ongoing love affair with thanks to Stitch Fix. I’ve kept many Loveappella pieces, both maternity and women’s over the years, most recently a fantastic sweatshirt from my August fix. Anyway, this tee is comfortable and feels very high quality. The slightly longer-than-average length has me swooning, and again I like the sleeve accents here. This is a cute casual top, but I don’t know if it’s $50 special.

[yop_poll id=”44″]

Verdict: This was a great fix! I didn’t leave any notes for my stylist this month so I was excited to see what she’d pick for me and was pleasantly surprised. Also, I love when my 5-item price is less than $200. The only item I really love is the Kut from the Kloth mixed material top, but I liked trying out everything in this month’s fix.

  1. I just started with Stitch Fix and so far I absolutely love it! I have the app which makes it much easier to change my shipment dates, checkout and leave a note for my stylist. I highly recommend this subscription box to anyone. I love subscription boxes and I’m so happy I found this site as I can find more to sign up for!

  2. You look great in all. I especially love the first outfit. It looks effortless. The cardigan reminds me of something I would find in my grandmothers closet. No it factor for me. Just putting in my two cents in.

  3. Wine is your color! I love both the cardigan and the floral top for you! Will you update with items that you kept????

  4. The jeans look amazing on you! I am in the minority, but I don’t think the cardigan matches your tastes, it isn’t youthful or fun enough!

  5. The dolman-esque cardigan looks great on you and slims your waist and provides great contrast to your hips and bust and tucks under your bottom. I would definitely keep it.

    Keep the Loveappella t-shirt. Again, it hits your hips/waist where it should and the patterned shoulders add a nice dimension and broaden you out given your bust.

  6. I’m just going to be a broken record and say that I love the cardigan! I hope they send you more wine-colored clothing in the future… it looks great on you!

  7. As another tall girl, while I liked the color of the cardigan on you, I would return it for the sleeve length alone….I know I would be tugging on them all day!

    • Ha! I love the sleeve length since I’m constantly pushing mine up…then they get all stretched out…!

  8. Keep the jeans and get them hemmed to a perfect length for flats! And I agree with the other commenters – I LOVE the cardigan on you!!!

    • Agree–get them hemmed for flats. This is a great brand of jean and they wash so well (even the dark wash).

  9. KEEP THE JEANS!!! I like to wear my bootcut jeans with a bootie that has a 2-inch chunky block heel. They seem to be the perfect height for that little lift you need with bootcut jeans, but are comfortable enough to wear for all day, everyday running around.

  10. I LOVE that mixed materials top. I want one for myself but can’t find it online anywhere! You look so cute in it!

  11. I have to agree with those above…that cardigan looks awesome on you!

  12. The cardigan looks so nice on you!

  13. That first top is NOT a raglan top lol. It’s also hard to see what the faux suede looks like. I voted return though. It’s kind of blah. Love ALL the rest of it though. The cardigan is fantastic on you too even though you don’t care for it. Thanks for the great review!

    • Sarah – yes I realized the lighting is not fantastic with me further from the camera. I have tweaked and fixed this in my set up for future reviews… sorry about that! The sleeves are a green/teal/emerald color. 🙂

      • See they look blue to me. That color is fantastic with your hair color and complexion. If the whole shirt was that, it’d be a keeper! 🙂

    • I agree, that cardigan is beautiful, and it looks great on you. The only piece I voted on to keep. (The rest of the tops were lovely, just not for the cost, and the jeans aren’t practical)

      • Yes! I agree. The cardigan was by far the prettiest and most flattering piece! I love it on her.

    • The other 2 tops actually look like raglan tops to me. Isn’t that where the sleeve material connects to the collar and is cut diagonally across the arm to the side of the torso?

      • Yes, the second two tops are raglan, not the first. Raglan is the cut of the sleeve where it connects to the shoulder, not just a top with different colored sleeves.
