Stitch Fix Clothing Subscription Box Review – March 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 March 2018 Review
This month I received a card informing me that Stitch Fix is now including ‘extras’ in monthly boxes. All you have to do is update your account if you would like to receive any of the pieces.
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 $179.50 to keep everything – an average of $35.90 per item and a total discount of $86.50.
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!
Honey Punch Raymund Graphic Cocoon Cardigan, size L – Cost to keep: $74
I love an oversized cardigan, but there was something about the blend of colors and pattern that didn’t work for me. The fit and cut were perfect, pairing really well with this white tee and jeans, but I could see this working well with a dress and boots. The fabric is a rayon and nylon blend so it was very warm and comfortable. I could see myself getting cozy in this on the couch over the weekend in slippers. I just wish the color combination was a bit different otherwise I would absolutely be keeping this one!
Mix by 41 Hawthorn Tumer Essential Knit Top, size L – Cost to keep: $28
I love a basic tee and am always in search of a white top that I can keep in my closet for the season. This top is a modal and spandex blend so it was very stretchy, but it was very see through which I didn’t love. The overall fit was a bit snug from what typically I like, and the sleeves were that cropped cut that doesn’t seem to be very flattering on my broader shoulders. As much as I love stocking up on basics, this tee fell a bit flat for me in terms of overall quality and fit.
Loveappella Simina Mixed Material Knit Top, size L – Cost to keep: $48
Oh, this top had a lot going on! I love a pattern on pattern look, but the black and white mixture of patterns on this top was just a bit much for me. The fit was super comfortable, in a rayon/spandex/polyester blend. I loved the length, but I thought the neckline and sleeves were a bit too young and unflattering on my figure. I could see this pairing really well with a denim or leather jacket and skinny jeans or a skirt. Unfortunately, the overall style wasn’t for me.
Rune Maesen Mesh Detail Moto Legging, size XL – Cost to keep: $58
These leggings are incredible! They are a spandex/polyester/nylon blend so there is so much stretch and they are extra breathable. I love the little mesh cutouts that give them a bit of an edge from plain black leggings. These would be great to wear to workout in, or just to wear with a cute sweater or tank to run errands. I am constantly chasing after my toddler so I love having a stretchy pair of pants that I can easily throw on while still feeling put together. These are a winner for me!
Nau Gracia Split Back Knit Top, size L – Cost to keep: $58
This top is perfect for my lifestyle! It is super soft, made from organic cotton and recycled polyester, and really moves with you. The split back is great because it doesn’t fly open like other tops I have tried in this style, so you don’t have to worry about wearing a tank top under it. I love how this looks with the mesh leggings, but it would look just as great with jeans. This is a basic that I know I will get a ton of wear out of!
Verdict: This month’s Stitch Fix was a bit all over the place for me. I didn’t love many of the pieces this month, but I am obsessed with the leggings and split back top! I will say, though, one big reason that this month was a bit different is because I am newly pregnant with my second baby! I made a note to my stylist that I was hoping to have my March box come in regular sizes, and then I would switch to the maternity styles for April. My stylist was amazing and thought about my growing bump when picking this month’s pieces, so I absolutely understand why she selected each of these pieces. I’ve never tried Stitch Fix maternity so I am so excited to see what April has to bring! For now, I will be living in this black split top.
