Stitch Fix Women’s Styling Service Review – December 2019

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 December 2019 Review


Stitch Fix includes a prepaid USPS envelope for you to send back any returns or exchanges in which makes it so easy and hassle-free!


With the holidays coming up, they sent a card reminding us that this service makes a great gift.

This is my invoice which 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 $236.00, but with the 25% off (which they take off BEFORE deducting the $20!) and the $20 credit, my total drops down to $157.00. That’s a savings of $79.00 on these items.


Your stylist will also include a style sheet with some tips on how to wear the pieces in your Fix. They even include ideas for accessories which I find incredibly helpful! There is also a note from my stylist, Kacey. This month I requested a dress I could wear with leggings and I also pinned a few cardigans on my Pinterest board, both of which she tried to deliver this month, which I so appreciate!


Kassidy Om Hi Rise Relax Performance Legging by Gaiam, Size L – Cost to Keep $54.00

Kacey did include some leggings for me this month and while I liked them and thought the quality was pretty good, they are closer to a pair of athletic leggings than something I would pair with sweaters and dresses. I do love that they have pockets and if I was on the lookout for more workout leggings, these would be great contenders, but these weren’t a keeper this month.


Anaya One Pocket Pullover by Staccato, Size M – Cost to Keep $46.00

This is the sweater that my stylist recommended I pair with the leggings she sent. I don’t think they paired well together at all though since the leggings were more athletic and the sweater is a really nice quality knit, although it did arrive with the tiniest snag under the pocket. I really love this sweater; it is so soft and cozy and the colors are great. The rich camel color is so pretty and it actually pairs well with the gray, which I would never have thought would work. This was my favorite piece this month and while at first I was bummed over the snag (yes, it’s tiny, but I worried it would get bigger with washing and wearing) because they were out of stock in my size for an exchange, after a quick email to customer service, they were able to find another in their inventory to send to me! Customer service at Stitch Fix is always pretty great in my opinion.


Nelcy Knit Dress by Nina Britton, Size L – Cost to Keep $48.00

I think the only thing I like about this dress is that it has pockets. I really dislike the combination of the pattern and colors, and I do not like the way it looks on me at all. I think it’s something about the flutter sleeves with that A-line skirt. It accentuates my hips (something the pockets actually emphasize more) and it is not very flattering for my frame. I also don’t like the flutter sleeves at all. I’m not sure why I’m hating on this dress so much, but it did not bring me joy!


Penton Two Pocket Cardigan by PINK CLOVER, Size M – Cost to Keep $44.00

While I did not like the dress, I did love this cardigan! It is so soft and a nicer cardigan perfect for pairing with a dress for nice occasions and it even has pockets. While I really liked this and thought the quality was great, a basic black cardigan is something that I already have in my closet and I don’t really need another one. I did note that I would love this same cardigan in another color if possible though! I think it even makes that dress look better!


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

This dress is much more my style. I love the colors and the floral pattern is pretty. I think I like the tie sleeves, but I am still undecided on that feature. This dress was soft and the quality is good – I own another French Grey dress that I love, but this one hit me at the waist at a really awkward spot that again was not so flattering. Plus, I had asked for a dress with pockets specifically (can you tell that’s important to me?) and this one didn’t have any, so this was a miss as well.

The Verdict: While I definitely thought my stylist sent me pieces that should have worked and that she tried to meet my requests, this Fix ended up being quite a miss for me. I guess I really did like three of the five pieces, but I didn’t need another black cardigan or athletic leggings this month. I think I’m feeling the disappointment because I was specifically looking for dresses and neither option that she sent was particularly exciting or flattering for me. I think I’ll request the same thing next month in hopes that their inventory changes and that I can find a comfortable dress to pair with leggings for the rest of winter! While this wasn’t my favorite Fix, I still think Stitch Fix is a great service worth the $20 styling fee since I have the convenience of getting to try new pieces in the comfort of my home. It’s especially nice in these winter months when I like to hibernate in the warmth of my house!

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 $236.00. 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 $157.00. That’s a discount of around 33% for these items.

  1. I got so, so many stitch fix boxes over the years and they continue to disappoint. The clothing always seems to be off in some way, and I have had them send patterns and materials I specifically requested (in multiple places on their website) that I did not want.

    The last box I received, two of the items ripped almost immediately. They’re usually not awesome quality, just middle of the road which I am not here for at the price point. Fortunately their customer service was awesome and refunded me completely for both.

  2. I’m not a big fan of the flowery print thing but paired with the cardigan …honey PERFECT…

  3. The first dress, with the flutter sleeves, looks quite flattering and forgiving in design. It’s the thing I find most flattering in the box this month, but the color pattern was definitely not the best, so that pretty much will ruin buying a dress. Hope they will send you a box that you enjoy every item, next month.

    • Thanks so much, h! 🙂

  4. I love the sweater. I would never pair leggings with it. Yuck. The dress with the pockets looked nice with the cardigan on. You don’t want to be stuck with a sweater on constantly though.

    • Agreed! I liked it with the cardigan, but wouldn’t wear it without it! Glad you agreed on the leggings too! Thanks for reading, Michelle! 🙂
