Stitch Fix is a monthly clothing and styling subscription service. When you initially sign up, you take an in-depth survey that asks you about your clothing size, personal style, and price preferences. Your stylist handpicks five items based on your preferences within the survey. 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!)

Stitch Fix Plus Clothing December 2017 Review

Stitch Fix invoice

This is the invoice that was included. It shows in detail the items selected for me and the brands, sizes, and cost of each piece. The total comes up to $292 after all the discounts if I opt to keep everything—which is a $124 total savings! That is like getting the KIYONNA velvet maxi dress for FREE! That is a killer savings!

Stitch Fix styling cards

Also included is this sheet with a note from my stylist, Candace. She is always receptive to the feedback I provide and consults my Pinterest, which I appreciate! She states in the note that she included the green velvet maxi due to similar items I have posted on my fashion Pinterest. She also provides helpful styling tips for each piece she picks out for me. The visuals are one of my favorite details. Not only are these tips helpful in my styling, but to show the versatility of each piece when I consider which potential piece to purchase! Now say “potential piece to purchase” five times fast, I dare ya!

Stitch Fix included an informative ad regarding how to gift a subscription to their service for a friend or loved one as well. Give the gift of fashion to your favorite guy or gal!

Kristy Velvet Dress by Love and Legend, Size 24w – Retail Value $84

Candace is well aware of my obsession with velvet items, so it comes as no surprise she included this fantastic dress. I am familiar with the Love and Legend brand since so many items are included in my Trunk Club boxes by them. I love this dress because its aesthetic is Mrs. Roper from Three’s Company meets Sabrina from Bewitched. This dress has ample stretch and the bell sleeves are out of sight! This would look great paired with patterned tights and knee-high boots. The dress is a bit baggy on me, but I still like the loose fit. I am curious what a size 22 might look like on me instead, though, especially if I did opt to make the purchase. Stitch Fix does offer to send different sizes in pieces if you are considering keeping them. That is always something to keep in mind.

This above the knee skirt has a great deal of stretch and hugs the curves incredibly well. I also love the faux suede look and feel. I paired this skirt with a bodysuit from ShoeDazzle that will be in an upcoming review. The cut and style of this skirt make it rather versatile. You could pair this skirt with black tights, booties, a large brimmed hat, and a turtleneck for a chic casual look or with flats and your favorite band shirt for a laidback weekend ensemble. The only negative is the cost, but again that could be justified by the adaptability of this skirt.

Bailee Lace Bell Sleeve Blouse by Truly Poppy, Size 3x — Retail Value $58

When I first saw this top I kept thinking of Seinfeld’s puffy shirt. I felt it may be too extreme with the lace cuffs, but once I tried this top on I could see the appeal. The fit is great. It is not terribly stretchy, but the cut was perfect on my frame. Some mixed media tops are done poorly and hang terribly, but that is not the case with this blouse. I am rather impressed with how the bell sleeves hang. I loved Candace’s suggestion of pairing the top with the faux suede skirt and choker she included, but I opted to wear it with some jeans for a casual look. This also would look fantastic with dress pants and pointy heels for a great work ensemble.

I have another dress by KIYONNA in a bodycon/wrap style, so I was excited to try another by the brand. This dress is incredibly luxurious and glamorous. The stretchy fabric paired with the adjustable tie sash helps you customize how the dress fits. I prefer my dresses to hug my body and this gorgeous one does that incredibly well. I paired the dress with a faux fur shawl, gold booties, and the necklace included in this month’s box for a perfect New Year’s Eve outfit!

Reina Collar Necklace by Baublebar

Reina Collar Necklace by Baublebar – Retail Value $68

As you all may or may not know, I am a sucker for glitzy costume jewelry. Candace definitely does and included this glitzy number in her offerings this month. The beauty of a choker like this is that you can wear it with a dressy ensemble or add some pizzazz to a more laid-back outfit. I would wear this with dresses, but even low cut band shirts, a moto jacket, booties, and skinny jeans. I adore the style of this necklace and that the baubles are set in brushed gold, but I did not like how snug this necklace is. I have a thick neck, but anyone with a larger neck than mine would need an extender for certain.

Verdict: Another stellar box from Stitch Fix this month. Time and time again I have to commend my stylist, Candace, on how attentive she is to details and to my preferences. I appreciate how she consistently references my Pinterest monthly for her selections. Stylists like her really take pride in customizing the experience for their customers and that does not go unnoticed with me. This makes the $20 stylist fee more than reasonable, especially since if I choose to keep an item it applies to what I purchase. I give Stitch Fix an A+!

To Wrap Up:

Can you still get this box if you sign up today? Stitch Fix curates its boxes based on each individual’s preferences as well as what’s available. What you get might not be the same as what I got, but you also might get something that fits your style and body even better than the looks above! Sign up and see what they choose for you!

Coupon – For a limited time, use this link to have your first styling fee ($20) waived!

Value Breakdown: This box cost $20 with free shipping and returns. The total retail value of the items inside is $416. The cost of each item is listed alongside it above, but if I choose to keep at least 5 items, I get a 25% discount. The $20.00 cost of the box would also be applied to the purchase, meaning I’d end up spending $292 for the whole box. Ultimately, that’s almost a 30% discount!

I have had such horrible luck with Stitch Fix. I wish I could get your stylist. Mine never seemed to listen to any of my reviews, nor did she try to emulate my Pinterest board in the 5 boxes I got. Every box was a complete let down. Is it worth it to try again if I request a new stylist?

Jenn Rhoda

The green dress with the fur details is beyond stunning. I wish I found a stitch fix stylist that knew me so well. I hope you’ll post another stitch fix in the future. I love your style.

Nicole Rieder

Thanks, Jenn Rhoda! I am glad you enjoyed my review! That dress is stunning. The faux fur collar is my own. I think my mom got it for me some time ago at JC Penney? If you liked this review, check out my other ones for Stitch Fix! I also do ones for Dia & Co, Gwynnie Bee, Trunk Club, and CHC Vintage!

Courtney

This review is actually really confusing to me, because for my December box from Stitch Fix, I specifically asked for holiday party items in velvet and sequins and rich brocade. Instead, they sent me a bunch of stuff that fit none of those criteria, with the exception of ONE loose velvet jacket, but the cut was totally matronly and ugly. And on the note, my stylist said “sorry we couldn’t get you more velvet or sequins!”

I thought it was weird that they didn’t have more holiday items, but now that I see what was received for this review (which I happen to be the exact same size as), it’s making me think that either they save the best stuff for people on their PR lists, or alternately my stylist is just completely incompetent.

Nicole Rieder

Awe, Courtney! I am sorry you have had such a poor experience with Stitch Fix this month. I know in my experience using pinterest for my boxes has helped. I would like to think I am not given special treatment due to me reviewing. Especially since we are paying customers like you and insist on no special treatments. Last month I got a ton of velvet and sequin options, so maybe they were slightly lower since then due to the demand for holiday items. But definitely try out that pinterest board and share it with your stylist! I hope that helps!

Courtney

Thanks for the tip. I actually do have a Pinterest board I share with them, and I even went to the trouble of curating a special “holiday” board that I added to my notes for my December box, which had a green velvet wrap dress pinned VERY similar to the Kiyonna dress in this review. So I’m sort of baffled that I didn’t receive something like that now that i know it was an option.

I’m going to give it one more shot for January, but sadly I think if Stitch Fix doesn’t step up their game for me, I’ll just cancel and do my own shopping from now on. I love a good sale, so I’ve also been thinking about canceling Stitch Fix anyway just because it bugs me a little that they will never pass on a discount to the customer, even when I see that the item they have sent me is on sale on the retailer’s website for 40%+ off when I receive it in my box.

AmyM

The green velvet dress is beyond stunning. Perfect cut, fit and obviously, color. From one ginger to another, never pass on a perfectly fitting green dress. You will leave to regret it.

Nicole Rieder

Thank you, AmyM! I loved that dress! My stylist sent me another gorgeous burnt pattern green velvet dress last month. Both were difficult to ship back! hahaha. But I agree. Green on a redhead is like cookies and milk!

Betty

I LOVE the blue top/orange flowers you are wearing with the skirt. It doesn’t look like it was part of the box?…but love the shirt. Where did you purchase it?

Nicole Rieder

Hey there, Betty! Thank you so much! That shirt is from Shoedazzle and will be in an upcoming review!

Betty

Thank you!

Rie

The green velvet dress was made for you, both the color and fit. Love the blue top too!

Nicole Rieder

Thank you, Rie!

Nicole Rieder

Hey there, Betty! Thank you so much! That shirt is from Shoedazzle and will be in an upcoming review!

Amy

I completely agree-you need them in your life!

Nicole Rieder

Oh, Amy! It was SO tempting to keep them. I sent them back, though.

Bex

This is the best box yet. There’s not a single piece I personally wouldn’t wear, and that necklace is beautiful. I’ve got my fingers crossed I’ll get the chance to try this box out soon because it seems so superior to other clothing subs I’ve tried.

Nicole Rieder

Bex, it is definitely one of my favorites. I also love Gwynnie Bee since it is a rental services and you get to select the pieces yourself. I definitely can’t suggest Stitch Fix enough, though. Especially if you have a stylist like Candace!

Teisha

Velvet becomes you, and thaat shirt! Personally, I wouldn’t keep the skirt, for the cost, and because everything else is so much more flattering! You know how to work lt!

Nicole Rieder

Thank you so much, Teisha! Yeah, the skirt was a bit steep, but so cute on. I didn’t keep anything sadly! It was tempting, though!

Kim

Oh my Lawd, both of the velvet dresses look so fabulous on you!!! Seriously, they are perfect for you😍

Nicole Rieder

Thank you so much, Kim! They were so gorgeous!
