Stitch Fix Kids December 2018 Review

In our Stitch Fix Kids box, there were several bright and colorful information sheets, a set of winter-themed stickers for my daughter and some information about their box challenge. I love that they encourage recycling of your box and that their stickers are changing with the seasons!

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 $210, but with the 25% discount (which they take off BEFORE they deduct the $20) and the $20 credit, our total drops down to $137.50.

This is the included stylesheet, which features pictures of all the clothing and a sweet note from her stylist, Isabel. It’s so cute how they have a little maze on the outside of it!

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!

Capelli New York Cayla Crushed Velvet Slip Ons, Size 13 – Cost to Keep $18.00

The color of these shoes says grey and that’s how they look in the photos, but in person, they have just a bit of brown to them. My daughter loved the velvet texture on the top of the shoes, but they were much too big on her right now. I would save them for the spring, but she has pretty wide feet so I’m afraid they might not fit well when she actually grows into them size wise. I did recently size up her shoes from a 12 to 13 on her style profile, but I really didn’t expect that they would send her shoes again so soon, so that’s my fault! This is only her fifth Stitch Fix, but the third pair of shoes that she has received.

Here are the shoes on her. They are a nice casual shoe that she can also dress up which I liked, but I wasn’t a real fan of the thick white sole.

Moon & Stars Brenna Fleece Tie Back Dress, Size 6 – Cost to Keep $22.00

This dress was our favorite item this month and easily a keeper! Liv almost exclusively wears dresses lately and I loved this beautiful floral pattern! The dress itself is super soft and just casual enough for her to play in, but the cute, colorful flowers and that fun tie detail on the back dress it up just a bit. The inside of this dress was actually lined in fleece so I think it will be a great warm dress for the winter when we find some leggings to pair it with!

Habitual Adele Crushed Velvet Tie Front Dress, Size 6 – Cost to Keep $36.00

You can probably tell by her face in the first photo how she felt about this dress! It was a fun, black, crushed velvet dress that was soft and cute, but it had this tie detail on the side in the front that the absolutely hated! She’s so particular about stuff like that sometimes.

It was sort of weird how one end of the tie was attached to some extra fabric, but it wasn’t really a wrap style either exactly. I thought the dress was okay overall, but she wasn’t having it, so this one went back!

Xtraordinary Allyson Knit Legging, Size XS – Cost to Keep $12.00

I loved the pattern and colors on these leggings and they were definitely “butter soft” but unfortunately they were huge on her! One thing I have noticed with Stitch Fix Kids is that the clothing sizes are definitely different from brand to brand and this month we experienced this a lot.

Flapdoodles Brigette Embroidery Detail Top, Size 6X – Cost to Keep $22.00

This shirt is adorable and I love the fun mix of sequins and embroidery on the flower, but this was another one that was much too big on her! It was a thicker knit though and would have been a nice option for winter!

Lucky Brand Zoe Skinny Jean, Size 6 – Cost to Keep $28.00

These Lucky Brand jeans were nice and I loved the dark wash (front view of them on her with the next item!). They were a bit big on her, but with the adjustable waistband, they would have been okay for her to wear for now once I tightened them up a bit. When I brought them out to try them on her I realized that the tag was coming off the back.

It actually looks like the tag was never really sewn on and maybe the machine missed the second half of it or ran out of thread? I don’t know if that should affect how I feel about the quality or not. Either way, she has enough jeans at the moment considering she never wears them since she chooses dresses and skirts 90% of the time.

Chenault Girl Lea Swing Tee, Size 6 – Cost to Keep $16.00

This shirt is super cute and definitely her style. I like the ruffles on the sleeves and the rhinestone butterfly with a little bit of sparkle! This swing top is a little big on her, but she will definitely get her use out of it well into the spring.

Nine One Eight Kourtney Lettuce Hem Top, Size XS – Cost to Keep $14.00

This shirt isn’t really Liv’s style nor is it mine. I liked the colors, but that’s about it. The sleeves almost felt a bit too short on her, although I think some of that is due to the lettuce hem making them look shorter. It was a pretty thin ribbed material and not very warm for a long sleeved shirt.

Paisley Sky Girls Stacy Knit Moto Pant, Size S – Cost to Keep $20.00

These black moto pants (more pictures below) were a nice thickness and I loved the fun details, but they were much too big on her again. The waistband was nice and stretchy, but not adjustable at all so these were just hanging off of her waist. I’m not so sure these are really her style anyway though, so we weren’t too upset!


Mia Chica Stacie Taped Sleeve Pullover, Size S – Cost to Keep $22.00

I really loved this last item, but Liv wasn’t too impressed. The heather gray with the nice bright stripes on the side was really cute, but it’s much too casual for her, which is probably why I liked it! It was a super soft, thin sweatshirt that felt very cozy and wouldn’t have been too bad a bit oversized, but she was swimming in it.

The Verdict: This month we had a lot of sizing issues with our Stitch Fix Kids box, which is disappointing, but we still found a few cute items that worked, so I’d say it was still a nice fix overall. This one felt like it was a good mix of my style and my daughter’s style and if some of the items had fit her better we might have been tempted to keep them as well. The sizing really does vary from brand to brand and usually, we can make it work since she is so drawn to dresses all the time, but since there were different types of clothing this month, it didn’t work out as well. One nice thing I do like about this subscription is that it pushes my daughter a bit outside of her comfort zone, although she’s a stubborn 4-year-old, so sometimes she just won’t budge! But at least she always tries them on for me. I think her stylist, Isabel, is great at picking items that Liv will love so I’m sure we’ll find more fun items next month!

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 $210-. 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 $137.50. That’s a discount of around 35% for these items!

  1. We also got the velvet dress and returned it! Way too fancy for my daughter, and the tie thing was just strange. Wish we’d gotten the floral dress–so cute on your daughter, and I’m sure mine would love it! We’ve had sizing issues as well, and the last pair of shoes we got looked like they could have fit me! (also size 13, but different shoes). I wish they offered discounts for keeping, say, 5 items, rather than requiring the full box. I feel like the chance we’d get all items that fit would be slim.

    • Hi Jill! Glad to know we weren’t the only ones that thought the tie was strange! Lol. And yes I agree it’s very rare that all 10 pieces fit correctly so a discount for less items kept would be nice! Thanks for sharing your experience! 🙂
