Stitch Fix Women’s Styling Service Review – November 2019


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

Stitch Fix is a personal styling 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 Fix. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).

Stitch Fix for Women November 2019 Review

As you can see, the included invoices 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 $254.00, but with the 25% off (which they take off BEFORE deducting the $20!) and the $20 credit, my total drops down to $170.50. That’s a savings of $63.50 on these items.

    This is my style sheet that includes a note from my stylist and features the five items I received along with different outfit suggestions and accessories that might pair well with them. This month I asked for some high waisted jeans and it looks like my stylist, Kacey, sent one pair for me to try.

      Valencia Curved Hem Pullover by Pink Clover, Size M – Cost to Keep $44.00

      This first top is my favorite! It is so incredibly soft and I love the color, and of course, the striped pattern. The material and shape feel very flattering and it is nicely made. This is a viscose/nylon blend and it has just a bit of stretch to it making it super comfortable to wear. It’s warm, cozy, and cute! I also really love the rounded hem at the bottom.

        Grace High Rise Super Skinny Jeans by Just Black, Size 10 – Cost to Keep $78.00

        These are the jeans that my stylist sent and I think they are more of a mid-rise than high-waisted, or maybe that’s just how high-waisted jeans look on my hips? They are comfortable, stretchy, and pretty comfortable, but not quite what I was looking for. They are also super long on me, which is surprising because I am tall and sometimes have issues with pant length. While I don’t mind long pants at all, I am really unsure about what to do with them when I wear booties! In the first set of photos with the blue sweater, I rolled them up, but in these photos, I left them down and went shoeless to show you how long they are. What do you do when your pants are super long and you want to wear booties? Roll them or tuck them in?

          Tarlio Brushed Cowl Neck Knit Top by Mix by 41 Hawthorn, Size M – Cost to Keep $38.00

          This cowl neck top is cozy, soft, comfortable and pretty much everything I want in a winter top, but I really am not loving the colors in this one. I love oatmeal and I love gray, but I don’t love them together here and I feel like they wash me out a bit. This one was a nice piece, that I probably would have kept had it come in another color or pattern.

            Jayden Elbow Patch Pullover by Pink Clover, Size M – Cost to Keep $46.00

            This top is just as soft as the blue striped sweater I received and is made from the same mix of viscose and nylon. It feels like a quality sweater and I love the striped sleeves and even the elbow patch design here, but the solid gray fabric was not flattering at the front. It seemed to accentuate everything I prefer to hide and even made my bra stand out a bit. I wish I felt more confident in this one because it is cute, nice quality and pretty cozy. It’s just a bit too clingy in all the wrong places.

              Murphy Brushed Knit Dress by French Grey, Size L – Cost to Keep $48.00

              This dress is really cute and another comfortable piece! I love the colors and the floral pattern and it is a perfect dress to wear with leggings and a cardigan or jacket. I wasn’t crazy about the silhouette of the top half of the dress and where the waistline hit on me. I was really on the fence about this one, but ultimately I decided to send it back. Although if this dress had pockets, I might have been tempted to keep it, not that pockets are a necessity, but they definitely would have tipped the scales a bit for me!

              The Verdict: I thought my stylist did a great job of sending quality pieces that suited my style this month. All of the clothing was super soft and comfortable, too. I appreciate that my stylist attempted to send me some jeans as I asked, but they weren’t quite as high-waisted as I am looking for, unfortunately. I do wish she had sent more than one pair, as well. The two tops I didn’t like were near misses and the dress was a close one as well. I’m just at the point where I try not to keep it if I don’t absolutely love it so I don’t end up with unused pieces in my wardrobe.  Overall, I think this Stitch Fix collection was great and I love the convenience of this service which is totally worth the $20 styling fee to me!

              To Wrap Up:

              Can you still get this Fix if you sign up today? Stitch Fix curates its Fixes 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!

              Value Breakdown: This styling service cost $20 with free shipping and returns. The total retail value of the items inside is $254.00. The invoice lists the cost of each item next to it, but if I keep all 5 items, then I get a 25% discount. The $20 styling fee for the Fix is applied to the purchase no matter how many items you keep, and in this case, it would bring the total down to $170.50. That’s a discount of around 33% for these items.

              1. My Subscription Addiction paid for this box. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).

              2. I just tried Stitch Fix and was very upset that they sent me several tank tops in November. I had to send it all back. My boyfriend was fascinated by the entire process and signed himself up. He got a nice pair of jeans and four long sleeved seasonally appropriate tops.

              3. I agree! This entire box looks like they bought the stuff that nobody wanted last year from Old Navy.

              4. Just got that sweater in burgundy. It’s soooo soft and comfy!

              5. Please keep those jeans. They look stunning on you, and show your off beautifully shaped legs.

                • ***Show off your

              6. Nice review! Loving that first top!! I cuff long jeans when wearing with booties. The tucked in look doesn’t look good on me. I also like pairing with ankle length skinnies, which are my go-to for wearing with tall boots too–less fabric to roll/tuck inside my calf socks!

              7. $78 for those jeans?! Lots of people have mentioned the pieces looking “Old Navy like”, which I agree with. That’s totally my style as well. That being said, Banana Republic (owned by the same company as Old Navy) has actual high waisted jeans (that go to the belly button), in various inseams and they would be much cheaper than $78 because they have promos and coupons regularly. If you are looking for a pair, that’s straight where I would go!

                • As much as I’ve shopped OldNavy I don’t think I’ve ever tried Banana Republic! I’ll definitely check them out! Thanks for the tip Heidi! 🙂

              8. I’ve received 3 orders and finally returned the entire last shipment and put it on hold while I decide if I want to keep trying them out. (I kept the first two but still haven’t worn a piece because she doesn’t understand fall in California is not heavy sweaters). My stylist obviously just sends random pieces without looking at my bio or comments and requests. I had to beg for her to start sending pants instead of dresses, even though my bio says I rarely wear dresses/skirts). Then she finally sends pants in the third box, but sends two pants of the same cut that is on my don’t send (I asked for straight leg, she sent very flared boot cut). I asked for outfits and she still sends separates that don’t match the bottoms. I don’t see any stylist curating, just grabbing pieces and sticking in a box.

                • Oh no! That’s not good at all! Have you asked to switch stylists? That might help! I really wouldn’t hesitate to reach out to CS if it’s that far off from what you’ve asked for! 🙁

                • Brandi, I have the exact problem. I don’t like straight legged jeans and like boot cut so I get straight legged. I’ve asked for outfits to since I’m terrible at putting clothes together. I haven’t got one outfit yet.
                  I also think this subscription needs to say what age group it is for. Maybe I’m crazy, but I’m 65 and paying for someone to wear out my jeans just goes against my grain. When they have holes in them is when they go into the pile that gets worn when doing rough dirty work.

                  • Hi DEEANN! I totally understand! I think that the stylist can certainly make or break your experience – especially when they aren’t going by what’s in your profile! I don’t enjoy distressed jeans either and I noted that in my profile and have had good luck in that area fortunately. My mother-in-law is actually very particular about her clothing but she has a stylist who seems to be able to meet her style which is much more modest than most. I’d reach out to customer service and request a new stylist and see if they can pair you up with someone who understands your style a little better!

                    • I plan on doing that. I thought I’d give her one more try. I’ll be getting it any day but it didn’t look promising.

                      • Hopefully it will surprise you and you’ll love it in person! 🤞

                  • Hiya! While I was happy with my first box, I’m afraid to get another one. When I look on social media showing what people received I am not impressed. I’m 63, and I don’t see much for my age group. I don’t like to look like an old lady at all, but I have to dress age appropriate. I think their clothes are not classy at all; I want to look like I have a million $$ even if I don’t! I’ve been having much more luck on resale websites where I can buy new with tags on. There’s nothing like getting a $200 skirt for $50!

                    • I agree with you. I think you can do much better on sites like Poshmark. You can get high end, designer clothing for very reasonable prices. Sub clothing box prices seem way overpriced to me. I think it’s better to “invest” in better quality clothing that will last several years or more. All this “fast fashion” ie. cheap clothing is piling up in our landfills.

                • Ask for a different stylist! Mine always tries to send what I ask, I always get outfits and I’ve loved nearly every item she’s ever picked. She pays attention to what I write and request.

              9. These pieces look like something you can get for less money at Old Navy, but at least there’s the convenience of home delivery.

                • They do! But I will say the quality is much better! The fabric is more substantial and more luxe than a lot of pieces I’ve owned fromOld Navy.

                • I came to say the exact same thing! I looked at the pictures and immediately thought-Old Navy.

              10. Brandi,

                Question for you, do you keep the same stylist every month? I did for awhile and she became a complete miss (was awesome for awhile and then I feel like her shopping window for me become a lot shorter). I am now having trouble with new stylists, getting my requests even with detailed notes. Any thoughts or advice? I just got my box and was really underwhelmed with everything. I asked for a semi casual Thanksgiving outfit and I got a lounge around the house jogger 🤔

                • Hi Jennie,

                  I have had the same stylist for a few months now and I always request her since she’s been doing a great job, but around this time last year I had a different stylist and I began having some issues similar to what you are having. I believe I did request a new stylist or maybe they even switched me based on my feedback? But I did have to try a few others before coming across my current stylist with a couple misses along the way! I do think it makes a huge difference once you find a stylist really hears your requests though even though it may be frustrating to keep trying new ones. I would recommend reaching out to CS if you think a certain fix was way off – I’ve always had a good experience with them and I think they will try to make it right! Hope my long-winded response helps! Lol. Hopefully you’ll find your perfect stylist soon! 🤞🤞🤞
