Stitch Fix Kids October 2018 Review

In our Stitch Fix Kids box, there were several bright and colorful information sheets and a set of stickers for my daughter.

This is the invoice that was sent in the box. 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 in the pre-paid postmarked envelope they provide. The items for my daughter came to a total of $252, but with the 25% discount (which they take off BEFORE they deduct the $20) and the $20 credit, our total drops down to $169.

This is the included style sheet, which features pictures of all the clothing and a note from the stylist. It’s so cute how they have a little maze on the outside of it! I didn’t ask for anything specific from our stylist this time, but it looks like she chose items based on the feedback I gave on our last box.

Just a note: My daughter is 4 and is incredibly tall for her age. She has been wearing 5T, but she is getting too tall for it all, so I asked for size 6, which means her skinny little 4-year-old body is swimming in most size 6 items, but at the rate she grows, I’m sure it won’t be long before it fits her!

Dr. Scholl’s Lucia Embroidered Bootie, Size 12 – Cost to Keep $40.00

This month we received an incredibly cute pair of booties that my daughter loves! (She is wearing them in a lot of the pictures, FYI). These are a nice medium brown and feature a zipper on the heel so that she can get them on and off easily. The heel is very low, and they are a nice substantial pair of shoes. That is quite the price tag for these though, and as much as we both love them, I just can’t spend that much on a pair of shoes that she will likely outgrow before the season is over.

I love how the little bit of colorful, embroidered flowers make these boots feel just a bit more feminine and special. I am definitely going to do my best to hunt down a more affordable version if I can!

Nine One Eight Kimmie Twist Front Top, Size 6 – Cost to Keep $18.00

This shirt is cute and stretchy and features a fun knotted detail in the front to make it even more interesting (more photos below). It is a bit large on her, and while it’s very cute, I think that the way this material is, it will lose shape very quickly. That combined with the fact that it’s already a bit big, which makes my daughter want to pull on the sleeves more for some reason, means that this will probably not last us very long. She also wasn’t crazy about it, and at this point, if my little fashionista isn’t in love with something, it will not get worn.

Silver Jeans Co. Mary Knit Denim Overalls, Size 6 – Cost to Keep $40.00

She has not worn overalls since she was in infant clothing, so I wasn’t sure how my daughter would feel about these. Fortunately, she loves them, and so do I! They are so cute and have tons of great details like the real pockets on the front, the rolled cuffs at the bottom and the pretty little buttons. I was afraid that overalls would never fit her since she is so tall, but low and behold, they do! This was her (and my) favorite item in the box, and while it is a splurge for us, I am thinking that the styling fee will help offset the cost! I also think that she will be able to wear these into spring, too because the cuffs roll down to extend the length of the pants, and she doesn’t quite fill them out yet width-wise. Are these justifications enough to convince my husband, yet? Haha!

Peace Love World Shira Ribbed Jogger, Size 6 – Cost to Keep $24.00

These pants are just a huge miss for us! They look very sloppy and are absolutely huge on my daughter (more pictures below)! They are probably pretty comfy and something I would wear myself for loungewear, but they didn’t seem nice enough to wear as anything other than pajamas or house clothes (and especially not at that price). They do have some cute pink, yellow, and blue stars along the side of one leg, but you can barely even see them since they are so baggy on her.

RUMI + RYDER The Long Sleeve Graphic Tee, Size S – Cost to Keep $20.00

My daughter loves this rainbow shirt, but it’s really just a thin, long-sleeve t-shirt. While it’s cute, I don’t think it’s quite worth the price tag this time. I do love how it has the color names on the back, complete with some gold, metallic lining and the fun “chasing rainbows” text on the sleeve.

Cotton On Kailani Legging, Size 6 – Cost to Keep $12.00

These leggings are cute but thin, and I really feel like we will have a hard time finding shirts or dresses to go with them since the colors are so bright. They were fine, but nothing really special, and I didn’t even think they paired that nicely with the unicorn sweatshirt they recommended.

Nine One Eight Kaity Fuzzy Graphic Pullover, Size 6 – Cost to Keep $26.00

The fuzzy unicorn shirt is cute and fun, but I’ve definitely seen a lot of cuter ones out in stores (H&M). Plus, white doesn’t really suit our home full of three children 4 and under! It’s very soft and warm, and the subtle sequin details are nice. It should be my daughter’s style, in theory, but it just didn’t stand out to us for some reason.

Nine One Eight – Olivia French Terry Ruffle Skirt, Size XS – Cost to Keep $20.00

The skirt is totally my daughter’s style, but we are on skirt overload at the moment, since she just received some for her birthday. The skirt features both silver and gold stars, but I couldn’t get the silver to show up in photos for some reason. I love that it has several layers and is super ruffly. It doesn’t have built-in shorts underneath of it like some do, which might have given me some more incentive for letting her keep it to wear in spring.

Mia Chica Jules Skater Dress, Size 6 – Cost to Keep $24.00

This dress is so pretty! It’s a soft jersey knit material, and I think it’s beautiful! It’s actually a bit more mature-looking, which might be what appeals to me. I love the little keyhole detail on the back and that this is somewhat form-fitting, but with a fun flared skirt. I really wanted to keep this, but in addition to skirts, she also just got some dresses for her birthday, so it’s not a necessity right now. If only it had red or green, I would totally make this her holiday dress!

And of course, the best part is that it has pockets! They are really low on the dress though, and I’m not sure if it’s designed that way, or just that the dress is actually really big on her.

Miss Selfie Blakely Fuzzy Trucker Jacket, Size 6 – Cost to Keep $28.00

This fuzzy jacket is so cute and pretty thick, so it should provide some warmth. She really liked it a lot, and if it had a hood, I would definitely have kept it. But she has 3 coats (of different thicknesses) now, and none of them have hoods!

Here is a close-up of the lining, which is a nice soft cotton.

The Verdict: This month’s  Stitch Fix Kids box was a lot better than last month, but I think that I’m starting to wish that they followed the adult model and sent five pieces at a time instead. I feel like it’s a little overwhelming for my daughter to pick through and determine what she really likes, and for me, it’s hard to determine which pieces I actually think she will wear! I’m not sure about other kids, but my daughter tends to wear the items that she loves over and over again, so sending 10 items means we would end up with a lot of clothing items that we don’t wear if we kept it all. If they really nail your style and you’re looking for a full wardrobe, it might work out for you, but I think I’d much rather freshen up her wardrobe a little bit at a time since her style is constantly changing. I do like the clothing items that they send, and I’m always able to find at least one item that we love, which means the styling fee doesn’t go to waste, but it just feels like a lot of clothing each time! Plus, I would be much more likely to keep it all if it were five items at a time. Overall, this was a great box, and the value could have been there if we loved everything and kept it, but a few of the pieces were a bit overpriced to me and a couple of them just didn’t work. It might have been worth it for those overalls though! 

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 we got, but you will probably get something that fits your child’s style and size even better than the looks above! Sign up and see what they choose for you!

Value Breakdown: This box cost $20 with free shipping and returns. The total retail value of the items inside is $252. The invoice lists the cost of each item next to it, but if I keep all of the items, then I get a 25% discount. The $20 styling fee for the box is applied to the purchase no matter how many items you keep, and in this case, it would bring the total down to $169. That’s a discount of around 33% for these items!

  1. If your daughter already has a ton of clothes, doing a Stitch Fix with 8-10 pieces every month is going to be overkill. You might want to spread them out to every 3 months so you have a better chance of actually needing the clothes. It seems like a waste to get 10 items a month and keep only one thing.

  2. Great box! My daughter has received a monthly kidpik box for over a year and keeps 50-100 percent of the box each time but she is getting a bit old for their style. She is 12 and wears a size 10 so she could use this box for a few more sizes. I would have kept everything but the joggers and the long sleeve tee in this box. Our kidpik boxes are usually just over $100 and we only get 5-6 items that are exclusively kidpik brand. I would like this box for brand variety and potentially older styles. I think we might have to make the switch- I don’t think her closet can handle both haha!!!

    • Oh I forgot to add…. your daughter is absolutely adorable!!!

      • Thanks, Candice! 🙂 This definitely sounds like a box your daughter might enjoy then! She would probably have some fun with it since she sounds like she knows her style and what she likes! 🙂

  3. Let that girl keep the boots! They are adorable! If she wear the same items over and over then I’m sure you will get your $$$ worth. If your not sure on the size lasting thru the season then maybe it’s time to up the size on the profile.

    I do agree this is way to many items for a growing child to receive at a time especially when there is a discount for keeping it all.

    I would like to see this reviewed by someone who needs/ can afford the items for their child. Or at least have the review written in a different way that doesn’t give off that vibe. Also, to suggest or stear the stylist in a direction to see if it is followed or ignored.

    Can you tell them to send the cheapest options if pricing is an issue for you? Box of items $25 and under? Only send 5 items? To only send solid colored bottoms? To skip on skirts and dresses since on overload? To only send hooded jackets? Only size up on bottoms and dresses? To ask for a specific length or longer but a smaller size or adjustable waist? To send mature looks only or to exclude them all together? Or further more to specifically request the pieces you are looking for? Could I ask for jackets only and get a box of jackets to choose from? Or boots only?

    • Hi Beccaox,

      Thanks for reading! The boots fit my daughter now but her feet grow pretty quickly, which is the problem with those. 😞

      As for asking the stylist for specific items, you certainly can and I have in the past, but that doesn’t necessarily mean that’s what they will send you since their inventory is somewhat limited.

      I also do have my profile set to the lowest price available, but again, that is not necessarily something that they are able to accommodate each time.

      Unfortunately, you can’t choose the number of pieces they send to you either. Hope that answers some of your questions! 🙂

    • I sort of agree about the boots. They’re super cute, and the price isn’t that bad, but they look really stiff don’t they? Like they would possibly be uncomfortable on the shins. IDK.

  4. You can get similar booties at Crazy 8. My daughter has a pair of gold ones.

    The rainbow graphic tee is very similar to Cat and Jack tees from Target. Those cost like $7.

    • Oh awesome! Thanks, Cookie! 🙂
