Liz’s Pinterest Board Stitch Fix Review


This post may contain referral/affiliate links. If you buy something, MSA may earn a commission. Read the full disclosure.

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!

  1. EVERYTHING looks great on you! I could see how those jeans would be out of your comfort zone – I also prefer dark wash and less “fussy” details – but you totally rock them. Seriously.

    I want that Harper Lane hoodie for myself!

    I update my Pinterest board regularly and I am still not sure how much it helps. I still think it’s strange that they don’t have basics like a “long sleeved black tunic sweater” in their inventory.

  2. I literally gasped when I saw those jeans. They are so good on you!

    • Haha OK it’s settled – I’m keeping them 🙂

  3. Everything looks perfect except last piece, pullover. The jeans are just made for you. Jacket and hoodie look awesome together. I would definitely keep first three pieces.

  4. Ehrmigawd! Those JEANS are my FAVORITE thing!!! 😍

  5. The jeans look amazing and so trendy. I love everything you received.

  6. I love everything in this box, and I never think that. i love love love those jeans. I like the moto jacket a little loose myself.

  7. Liz what are you keeping? I noticed on these clothing subs no one says what they kept! I’d love to know what they thought was worth the cost. My stylist is awesome I kept my entire fix this month.

    • Since there’s the 25% discount when you keep everything, I’m starting to reconsider keeping the jeans thanks to the comments here 🙂

      • You should!! Those jeans are so cool, and the fit is amazing!! Do you still get the discount if you need to exchange something for a different size?

        • Thanks! I’m not sure about the size exchange, I’ve never done that before. I’ll find out 🙂

          • Thanks :o)

          • The jeans would have been awesome without the frayed hem. The fit is great, they look amazing on you, but that detail just kills it. I don’t like all the weird hems on jeans. I just like a nice boot cut pair that makes my butt look good.

          • Just chiming in to say you can still get the discount with a size exchange if you keep everything!

          • Oh great! Thank you for letting me know!

        • Following this thread since I subscribe to Stitch Fix. Yes – you can exchange for a different size. I’ve done so, and they made it very easy. Hope that information helps.

      • Oh Good! I loved the jeans.

  8. Liz as usual everthing looks amazing!

    • Thank you! ❤️

  9. In regards to your question, I think the Moto jacket looks great on you as is, I think. I would wear it like that. However, the looks also really works like you said you preferred, sized down with the jacket open, so long as the arms are either stretchy or still roomy enough you can move around in them. I’ve sized down in the past to have a slimmer profile, and while it looked great, I quickly regretted it because of the fit through the shoulders.

    Also, I know those jeans aren’t you’re taste, but you rock them! They look like they belong on you!

    • Thanks so much for the advice, Jess! The shoulder area in the jacket is a good thing to keep in mind!

  10. Love your entire box.. I would size down in the jacket, but everything is perfect. I need to request a duplicate of your box. I adore those jeans!

  11. I think Stitch Fix must not have anything in their warehouse that fits my preferences, because I made a Pinterest board back when I signed up with tons and tons of items on it, all fitting a similar profile, and it’s like they didn’t even look at it, even though I kept reminding them in the feedback that it existed.

    I can totally see how they got what they sent you from your board, but I just don’t do neutrals, and that’s what they kept sending me. (Well, and also things that didn’t fit at all, like a dress so big I could put it on over another dress, or pants for someone about 6 inches taller than I am.)

    I can shop at places like Macy’s and Kohl’s (online anyway, the stores around here don’t ever seem to have my size in stock) so it’s not like I’m *too* out there in terms of what I like, but I gave up on Stitch Fix.

  12. My stylist just sent a scalloped edge skirt that I had pinned to my board. And before that a green cargo vest. They really pay attention, which I guess means I should pay more to my board! Also, if you’re not planning on zipping, I would definitely size down.
