Stitch Fix Subscription Box Review – January 2017


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: U.S. only

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


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 $194.50 to keep everything – an average of $38.95 per item and a total discount of $92.50


Each box comes with cards with styling suggestions for every piece, plus a little note from your stylist.


Absolutely Khloe Sleeveless Open Cardigan – Cost to Keep: $48

This cardigan is definitely a miss for me… I never wear cream or vests so this just doesn’t fit at all into my wardrobe. I do have to say that the material was amazing and the quality felt very nice, though!


Loveapella Leigha Tie Back Knit Top – Cost to Keep: $48

This is a great top! The fit and length is perfect for me and I like how it drapes in a flattering way. The little floral accent on the shoulders is cute, too, and goes perfectly with these pants. The deal breaker with this for me though is the back, which I’ll show you next.

Liverpool Adele Skinny Jean – Cost to Keep: $88

Liverpool seems to be a brand I get some hits and misses with. My absolute favorite pair of pants from Stitch Fix I ever bought are Liverpool, but I feel like I’ve experienced inconsistent sizing across their styles. This pair was quite snug on me even though it should have been the right size.

That being said, construction and quality felt nice as always, and the color is really pretty. I already own a pair of burgundy skinnies, but these are a lighter color that would transition well into Spring.


Here’s a closer look at the little floral print on the shoulders!


Here’s why I chose not to keep this top (and really, this is the only reason – I loved it otherwise): the back cut out is too big. I like the tie-back top but I struggled to keep my bra straps covered just to pose for a picture. This is still an adorable style, just not for me.


Laila Jade Carlique Raw Edge Neckline Knit Top – Cost to Keep: $54

I absolutely kept this top. The fit is spot on and the material is so comfortable and soft!  I love wearing grey and basic, high-quality tops, and the length is perfect for me, too.  I’ve already worn this a handful of times since getting my fix!


Skies Are Blue Yasmin Swing Top – Cost to Keep: $48

The fit of this top is fantastic, too, but I don’t personally care for the print. The color is okay but I just don’t know if I’ll reach for it.

Verdict: This fix didn’t feel as personalized to my style as usual, but it still had some pieces I liked in it. I really love all the tops, but only kept the grey v-neck because it was the only one I really loved and knew I’d reach for. Everything fit great, too, except the jeans.

  1. Wow you look amazing in that swing top!

  2. I used to to do Stitch Fix until I finally decided to call it quits because my stylist could not get it right. Not too mention the prices were ridiculously overpriced! These were items that could be found at TJMaxx, Marshall’s, Ross, Macy’s and WAY cheaper! I hated the fact that they kept my $20 for something I didnt even like. Grr.

    • I agree, these items may be found at TJ Maxx, but I can never find what I like in my size 🙁 I live in a city and our stores get picked over SO FAST and they are so crowded on the weekends. I don’t mind paying extra for convenience (especially now that I have an infant son!).

  3. Just wanted to say that you looked great in that swing top. The color was perfect!

  4. For those who continue to use Stitch Fix and regularly enjoy your items, can you recommend your stylist’s name and how many fixes you think it took for them to really “get you”?

    • My stylist is Heather. She sends me great items, but out of the probably 10 fixes I’ve received, I’ve only ever kept all of the items once. That was my third box. In fairness, I don’t have any social media accounts linked, so all she has to go on is whatever’s in my note (I’m not sure – do the stylists get to see the feedback on returned items?) There’s usually only one item that I end up keeping out of the box. I find that a lot of the “skinny pants” are just expensive leggings. I’ve cut back how often I get them, but I’ve still gotten some pieces that I love to death.

    • I have had 2 stylists in about a year (forgot their names, it’s been a few months) – and I have a Pinterest Board for “2017 Style” that I update before each SF order. I also ask for specific items like an A-line dress or a cute new jacket, also specify colors or prints I’d like to see, or an event I am attending. I asked for a cool statement necklace for my birthday, and my stylist totally delivered. I like that they pick out items that I normally would never choose for myself, but they look great! I am adventurous but not overly trendy… maybe other folks feel differently about their level of excitement in their boxes, lol.

      PS – the maternity SF boxes are really awesome also. I just ordered, but it was full of versatile pieces. And, it certainly made me feel prettier to have a few nice maternity clothes (other than Target clothes) in my closet.

  5. Unfortunately, Stitch Fix was not a hit with me. The prices are too high, and I can find more interesting items at a thrift shop.

    • I agree! I shop mainly consignment, thrift, and sale racks…or places like TJ Maxx, Ross, and Marshall’s. These prices are crazy high for some of these things. But for those who don’t like to shop and have a bigger budget than me, I can see how it would be helpful.

  6. I do too! That pink top is wonderful on you. The open cardigan, yuck. Shapeless and unflattering. Really didn’t care for the keyhole in the back shirt either. I too wear a lot a lot of grey.

  7. I actually really love that swing top on you!!
