Stitch Fix Clothing Subscription Box Review – February 2018
Stitch Fix is a monthly clothing and styling subscription service. When you sign up you take a pretty in-depth survey of 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!)
My items are reflective of my style and price preferences, so your Stitch Fix may be completely different!
My Subscription Addiction paid for this box. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).

Stitch Fix for Women February 2018 Review
Each box comes with cards with styling suggestions for every piece, plus a little note from your stylist. They also show you how you can build a complete outfit with each piece. Super helpful!
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 $224.50 to keep everything – an average of $44.90 per item and a total discount of $101.50.
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. I love easy returns!
Moana Elbow Patch Pullover by RD Style, size L – Cost to keep: $64
I love the overall look and feel of this sweater, but the fit was a bit snug for my liking. The neutral color is perfect and would transition well from fall to winter or even winter into spring. This sweater is a cotton, acrylique, and acrilico blend so there wasn’t a ton of stretch or breathability to it. The patches on the sleeves give it a cute extra detail that I really enjoyed. I would absolutely be keeping this if the fit was a tad bigger.
Harrison Distressed Straight Leg Jean by Cosmic Blue Love, size 14 – Cost to keep: $88
I am obsessed with these jeans. They have an awesome structured look to them, like a more modern mom jean, but they have a ton of stretch (they are a cotton and spandex blend). They were extra comfortable and hit the perfect part of my waist that felt super flattering. I tend to get jeans with a little-distressed look to them so I loved that these had a bit of an edge to them as well. The perfect jean that will work with so many different looks.
Mishelle Cold Shoulder Embroidery Detail Top by Skies Are Blue, size L – Cost to keep: $58
I didn’t like this top when I first took it out of the box, but I really loved it on! The “cold shoulder” sleeves are not something I would pick out for myself, but I thought they were really fun and flattering. I could see myself wearing this to work or for a date night out with my husband. I love how it looks with jeans, but it could work with a skirt or a bold trouser. The fabric is rayon so there wasn’t a ton of give, but I thought the overall fit was perfect for my shape. Will you look at that extra embroidery detail on the edges? I love this top so much!
Prinsloo Ruffle Neck Blouse by 41 Hawthorn, size L – Cost to keep: $58
I really love the fit and color of this blouse. Now that I am home with my son full-time, I don’t know if this would work with my overall style and lifestyle, but I do think it is very pretty. I could see this being paired with jeans like I have styled here, tucked into a high-waisted skirt, or with a wide-leg trouser. It is made of polyester and nylon, so not a ton of give to it, which I think created some issues where the bottom of the blouse hit my hip area. This feels more like a work blouse to me, but I could see it look great with a leather jacket to edge it up a bit. I also loved the detail at the neck, had I gotten this last year when I was still working I would have absolutely kept it!
Lallie Cowl Neck Textured Knit Sweatshirt by Loveappella, size L – Cost to keep: $58
OMG, I want to live in this! This polyester, rayon, and spandex sweatshirt is just my style. You can wear it with jeans, leggings, or a fun jogger. The fabric is super stretchy and warm! The cowl neck makes this look a little more structured than a typical athletic sweatshirt, but the overall look and feel of this screams stylish comfort to me. Plus, this arrived in my favorite color, black!
Verdict: This month’s Stitch Fix was a great surprise! When I first looked at my order and the pieces right out of the boxes I wasn’t feeling any of the looks. However, once I tried everything on I really loved each piece for their own reasons. The style this month really hits the mark, matching my overall lifestyle and personal style preferences in a bigger way than last month. I would also say that the pricing matched the quality a lot better as well. My favorite pieces were the jeans and sweatshirt, but I honestly loved everything, even the pieces that I ultimately returned. This box was a big win for me! I can’t wait to see what March holds!
