Stitch Fix Clothing Subscription Box Review – June 2017

Stitch Fix Women's Clothing Subscription Box - June 2017

Stitch Fix is a monthly clothing and styling subscription service. When you sign up you take a pretty in-depth survey about your sizes, your style, and pricing preferences. After choosing when you’d like to receive your delivery, your stylist handpicks 5 items based on your preferences. 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!)

This month, my box arrived with the box folded but not taped or sealed shut. Thankfully the contents were intact and all was fine!

My items are reflective of my style and price preferences, so your Stitch Fix may be completely different!

Stitch Fix Women's Clothing Subscription Box - June 2017

A couple weeks before my Stitch Fix box was mailed out, I received an email suggesting I take a look at Stitch Fix’s new arrivals Pinterest page and pin styles I was interested in. Since I haven’t had the best success with previous Fixes, I thought it would be good to see if this feedback would help my stylist. Let’s find out!

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 $226 to keep everything – an average of $45.20 per item and a total discount of $102.

For anything you plan to return, Stitch Fix instructs you to complete a checkout process online so they know what to expect coming back, and it also allows you to provide feedback about the items. They include a USPS prepaid mailing bag in your box too. You just pack up the items you don’t want and drop the bag off at your post office. Last month, I left the bag for my mail carrier and they picked it up! So convenient!

Each box comes with cards with styling suggestions for every piece, plus a little note from your stylist. This was by far the most helpful piece of info in the box because it inspired outfits I wouldn’t have thought of otherwise!

Report Footwear Liam Embellished Sandal – Cost to keep: $50

Happy to see footwear again this month! I am familiar with Report Footwear and like their styles and like the strappy look of these sandals. They’re made of a gray faux suede and are easy to put on and take off, thanks to the back zippers. However, I do not care for the silver diamond accents; personally, I feel they cheapen the overall look of the sandals. And for $50, I didn’t see the value in keeping this pair.

Napean Sea Rd Foley One Pocket Top – Cost to keep: $58

The first of three tops this month is this plaid long-sleeve button down. The fabric is soft and lightweight and the colors of the plaid are nice, but the cut is a tad large. The sleeves are very long, in particular. I bummed to see Stitch Fix sent another plaid top, especially a long sleeved option heading into summer. My style preferences are romantic and edgy, both of which this top is not. It’s good quality, just not for me.

Cosmic Blue Love Adrianne Distressed Boyfriend Jean – Cost to keep: $88

I was happy to see a pair of boyfriend jeans, especially a pair that look like what I pinned from their Pinterest page! These are great; they’re a lower rise than I typically wear, but they sit perfectly on my waist and hips. The distressing is only on the front of the jeans and just enough.

They arrived cuffed twice but that felt too capri in length so I ended up unrolling a bit which I like much more when wearing with booties. These jeans are definitely my favorite from this month’s box!

Le Lis Adea Faux Suede Button Back Knit Top – Cost to keep: $58

This top is a mix of faux suede on the bodice and a soft knit on the front and back yokes and sleeves. Both fabrics are a charcoal gray, so it makes for a nice monochromatic top. When I first pulled this top out of the box, I thought I’d really like it on, but there’s something about the cut that is throwing me off. Maybe the length?

Or maybe the buttons in the back!

Daniel Rainn Camden Crochet Detail Top – Cost to keep: $74

Last up this month is a white boho-looking top. It’s a sheer fabric with crochet so I was glad to see it’s lined. I was able to confidently try this on without worrying about what I’d have to layer underneath. There’s a simple crochet pattern that runs throughout the front and back of the top, along with a split neckline, finished with ties. I thought this top was OK, but definitely not worth $74.

Verdict: This is my fifth Stitch Fix box and I think it’s time to take a break. Looking back at each of my Fixes, I’ve been disappointed more often than happy with the curation. Although I think my feedback is being read, my style doesn’t marry well to the brands or clothing Stitch Fix specializes in. And I’m bummed the time spent to pin styles on Pinterest didn’t really impact what I received, aside from the jeans.

All in all, the $20 monthly styling fee (which also includes free shipping and returns) is a low-risk way of shopping for clothes in the comfort of your home. However, beware: after taking a look back at my style profile, I have yet to receive the trends and quality items I see in the profile’s “style” section.

  1. Just got my first box after holding off for months since filling out the survey (The waived styling fee finally made it worth a shot). I was really afraid after using a personal styling app called Tailor that SF wouldn’t know how to handle my desire to avoid “trendy” items, but I was pleasantly surprised! All the items I received were indeed direct reflections of my Pinterest board and given information, though never the less all but one were just slightly “off.” I hope feedback would lead to fine tuning, but I’m not sure with my budget at the moment that it’s such a good idea for me order another fix.
    As for the one jacket that I fell in love with, I’m currently kind of torn because it’s far more than a thrift shopper like myself is used to spending on one item ($88!) but I can almost justify it.
    With pricing in general I will point out that you can adjust your cost preferences for each type of item, but the two lowest options are “the cheaper the better” and “$50 – $100.” All the items I requested to be as cheap as possible fell in the $40-$50 range, so that was kind of disappointing. Meant sending back things I would’ve kept if they were half the price.
    Overall I enjoyed the experience of being surprised and was impressed that the stylist already seems to get my style. If you’re on a tight budget though beware, because their whole business is run on the psychology that once something’s already in your house it feels easier to buy it.

  2. Thank you so much for reviewing and putting up the prices as well. I was back and forth but was iffy when no pricing was given. working mom of two in this economy, yeah cannot afford it. maybe later on in the future..

  3. So since my first box is late a “huge” issue for me because the app keeps saying it’s arriving today (it’s 5:45pm as we speak)! And USPS hasn’t a clue where it is either, this box is going to need to really wow me.

    • I hope you received your box. I received my first about 3 weeks ago and loved everything in it. My stylist seems to get my style already.

  4. I got my first box today. I’m really happy with it. I’m using this to try clothes I normally wouldn’t try on.

    There’s one top that I will wear to work but I’m not in love with. If I returned it, I would have spent the same amount after removing the 25%.
    Everything else was fantastic.
    I did get a sleeveless top and I said I didn’t want sleeveless but I actually loved the way it looks on.
    My first box is a winner for me.

  5. My box arrived today. I had pinned about 20 things and noted that I really wanted a top in yellow, orange and red by Renee C. They sent a grey striped shirt. I asked for white pants. They sent tan and black checked. 1 shapeless baby doll shirt with ruffles in blue, I had said “no blue”. 1 dress that exposed my back (which I like to keep covered, noted in my preferences) and was of very transparent material. The final piece was a shapeless tan cardigan. I guess I should throw it over the dress?
    It all went back with an email to them to refund the fee. What a pile of cheap crap. 🙁

    • I’m sorry to hear that, Dot! I love the pinning feature, but not sure how it’s communicated back to the stylist, other than adding it as a note to your stylist or including it as a Pinterest link in your profile. Hopefully, next month will be better for you!

    • Totally agree. Some of my items were at least cute – but the quality was not worth the price (not even close!). Why would anybody waste money on this subscription?

  6. I love your booties! They are so cute.

    Everything else is just meh. The crochet top would be great if it was $50

  7. The sandals was cute, everything else just look out of season.

  8. Maybe I’m not seeing it but I think the black shirt looks lovely and the buttons included. However no one knows what looks best on you better than yourself.

    • Thanks so much! I agree it’s a cute top, but just not for me 🙂

  9. I tried two shipments. The clothes are expensive. Their fit seems off. I was sent one top. Though it was cute, it had a strong smell of dye. I was sent a very nice pair of jeans. I did not buy them. I can’t bring myself to pay 88.00 for a pair of jeans when I can get a pair just as nice at Macy’s on sale for $30.00. I repeatedly told my stylist I have heavy thighs and therefore cannot wear skinny jeans. I was sent about 3 pair of skinny jeans or slacks.

    • Thanks for sharing your experience, Cindy! I got some really great feedback in my first review that it takes a few shipments to start seeing your style, etc. I’m glad you’re providing your stylist feedback and hope future Fixes are better for you!

  10. I am so not comprehending their insistence that long sleeved, plaid, button down shirts are a “thing” for spring and summer.

  11. I think I’ve given up on Stitch Fix (unless they do another month of waiving the styling fee). My first few boxes were good, and they sent me what became one of my favorite pairs of jeans, but it all seems to have gone slowly downhill. I found that if I’m specific in requests to my stylist when I schedule a Fix, I’ll get what I ask for, but I’ve had the best success when I give her a general idea, like summer work tops, and tell her to surprise me. But, I can’t justify​ keeping one item that I’m “ehhh” on just to make it worth the $20 anymore.

    • With me, they didn’t get what was work-appropriate. And I work in a business casual sort of office. T-shirt material is not work-appropriate.

    • At the beginning of the year, I purchased a year of unlimited styling for $49, but after this year is over I think I’m giving up, too.

      I think my style and body type are just too specific for the Stitch Fix algorithms and I need more individual attention from a stylist, not a computer. My last few boxes have been pretty disappointing and I think I’m already on my 4th stylist.

      I also don’t think they are very good at quality control and feel like they try to pawn off old inventory on me. In one of my boxes, I received two damaged items and when I reported them, CS told me that there weren’t any replacement items in their inventory. The same thing also happened when I tried to exchange one item from another box for a size up.

      It was fun while it lasted, but I think the novelty has worn off. I’m thinking about trying Trunk Club next/instead.

      • Great feedback, Elle! I receive and review Trunk Club and it’s by far my favorite (even though the clothes are more expensive). Hope you try it and like it too!

    • Great tips, Mandy!

  12. You would probably hate 3/4 of the sandals in my closet. I have SO MANY with rhinestones on them.

    • Ha, not true, Ragan! I love unique touches (this pair was just not for me) 🙂

  13. There is so much mismatching of the plaid pattern across the seams of that shirt it hurts to look at it!!

    The black top is awkwardly designed as you mentioned.

    I do like the white top, but agree it’s not a $74 one.

  14. If any of you follow sales, Stitch Fix generally has items that have been previously clearanced out. I found out they rename clothes after finding an expensive shirt on the rack that I bought from SF but couldn’t find anywhere with name of too provided.

    Also, I’ve never seen them do edgy.

  15. I tried stickfix when looking for very specific types of clothing that I was struggling to find myself. It worked great for that, and my stylist really took my preferences into account. I will probably reserve this service for those times because I can do enough damage to my wallet shopping on my own for most things and probably find better deals too! But my single fix experience did work out great.

    • So glad to hear it, Michelle!

  16. with the exception of the sandals, that really feels like a fall box to me… I’m wondering what your stylist was thinking putting that together in May?!

    • Agreed. Why are they all long or 3/4 sleeve tops. We are coming into summer. You can get any of these tops at a discount at this time of year.

  17. Those jeans look awesome and I like your sandals, but you’re right, the tops are off. I’ve got my 4th box coming June 3rd and it’s a “make or break” for me. My first box was awesome but the last 2 have been a little more lackluster.

    • Thanks! I hope your 4th box is awesome, Anne!

  18. Well,your stylist got the jeans right. They are very cute and look good on you. But going into summer soon the long sleeve tops do not make sense to me. And I would not consider any of those tops “romantic” or “edgy”.

    • Okay,maybe the crochet top is “romantic”,but it is lined,so not screaming warmer weather.
