Liz’s Pinterest Board Stitch Fix Review
I recently started subscribing to Stitch Fix again after taking a break for a few years, and this is my fourth shipment! And thanks to MSA reader suggestions, I made a Pinterest board with my style preferences and asked my stylist to match the board as best she could for this shipment.
If you aren’t familiar, 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 as well as free returns. 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 paid for this box. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).
Stitch Fix now offers services for Men, Kids, Maternity, Petite, and Plus Size!

Each box comes with a free return bag. All you have to do is package up anything you want to return and send it back. Super easy!
When you first sign up for Stitch Fix, you’ll fill out a survey to give your stylist specifics on your size, style, clothing needs etc. And the best part is you can also leave notes for exactly what you are looking for. In my case, I told my stylist that I love maxi dresses and that I need bold tops that are good for filming unboxing videos. (That means eye-catching but not distracting.) As you can see on the note included from my stylist, she used that feedback!
And there are also cards for each piece to give you styling ideas.
This is the invoice that was sent in the box. As you can see, it provides specifics on the brand, size, and price of each item. They also give instructions at the bottom for how to check out and either purchase or return your items. My total came to $417, but with the 25% off if I keep everything, it would be $332.75.
OK, here are the pieces:
Violet & Red Rachel Suede Bootie SIZE: 8.5 Cost to Keep $99
These suede booties have a side zip and a smidge of a heel. Love the classic look (I feel like these will be in style for years), and they are super comfortable. I usually go with at least a 2.5 inch heel on any shoe to look a little taller/slimmer, but I’m going to keep these for days when comfort + style are equal priority 🙂
Harper Lane Hanna Hooded Grommet Sweater – Size M Cost to Keep $68
This sweater seemed like a perfect interpretation of my Pinterest board. The grommet details give it just a subtly edgy vibe, the knit is cozy, and the hoodie part seems perfect for layering.
And here is a closer look at the jeans I’m wearing:
Sam Edelman The Boot High Rise Frayed Hem Bootcut Jean – Size 6 Cost to Keep $98
Confession: I requested high rise, boot cut jeans from my stylist because I saw Rachel Zoe wearing them in the booklet from the Fall Box of Style, and thought she looked amazing. My stylist totally delivered on what I requested, but now I’m realizing I should have been more specific. I’m not digging the frayed edges, and ideally, I would prefer a darker wash. These are going back with feedback, but this misstep is on me!
Bagatelle Faux Leather Moto Jacket – Cost to Keep $88
My Pinterest board is pretty much a love letter to Moto Jackets, so I was very happy my stylist picked up on that! And this color was unexpected!
I like the burgundy wine color with the black metal accents, too.
And there’s even zipper detail on the pockets:
So here’s my question for any moto jacket experts – should I go a size down so that it looks more fitted when open? I’m really like the look of moto jackets open, so I think I’d be OK with not being able to zip it closed. (Right now this one is feeling a smidge too loose for the look I want.)
Market & Spruce Tawnie Split Back Opening Pullover – Size M Cost to Keep $64
This top is over sized and comfy with added crossover detail on the neckline, and a split back opening featuring a black fabric panel. Again, it’s a good basic, great for layering, but I’m not sure it’s something I’d spend $64 on.
The Verdict: This is my first time trying Stitch Fix based on a Pinterest board, and I’m impressed! This is definitely the way to go – I feel like helping my stylist visualize the look I was going for worked so much better than using just my text style profile. If you’ve tried Stitch Fix before and weren’t happy with the results, I recommend giving it a try again with the Pinterest approach.
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!
