Stitch Fix is a personal styling service. When you sign up, you take an in-depth survey of your sizes, your style, and your pricing preferences. After choosing when you’d like to receive your delivery, your stylist handpicks five 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 Fix may be completely different. 

FYI, COVID-19 Updates: To learn more about Stitch Fix’s extended return window, any potential fulfillment delays, and more, read all of their service-related updates here.

My Subscription Addiction paid for this Fix. (Check out our editorial guidelines to learn more about how we conduct reviews.)

First Impressions

 

Let's take a look at this month's selections, shall we?

What's Inside This Month's Fix

Celia Sleeve Detail Dress  by 41 Hawthorn in Purple, Size 3x — Retail Value $74.00 (similar found here)

 

This purple floral dress might be my pick of the litter from Torey this month. I used to steer clear of purple in my wardrobe, but over the years I have begun to embrace it in a variety of hues. I love this particular shade of purple because it is more blue-toned. The magenta flowers have a great contrast, yet complimentary tone against the background. I am never one to be scared off by tight or short pieces, but I would have loved this piece more so if the material had more stretch. At times, it is a bit cumbersome and I know if I bent over without a concern someone would be seeing a full moon in the middle of the day time! This is adorable for warm weather months styled with platforms, oversized sunnies, and a large brimmed hat for maximum 70s vibes. Even though this is a wonderful dress for the summer. you could definitely wear it in cooler months with black tights, a cardigan, and chunky Mary Janes. We stan a versatile piece that can be worn all year!

Cap Sleeve Knit Button Down by Sanctuary in Peach, Size 2x — Retail Value $48.00 (similar found here)

 

Aye, I ain't going to lie to yinz: this was not one of my favorite items Torey selected for me this month. Now let me start with the pros, I actually appreciate the style of this piece. The fabric has loads of stretch, the cap sleeves are adorable, the cut is cute as heck,  and I didn't have much bulging issues on the buttons. Those are all very important criteria, friends! My issue: the color. I cannot deal with this pale peach that blends into my skin tone. This isn't to say that this wouldn't look precious on someone else, especially in jean shorts and sneakers or a romantic floral skirt and platform sandals this summer. It is just too muted for me and I am not feeling it. I would LOVE this top in black or a shade of green, orange, or blue... but this color is just too tame for me and makes me look a bit washed out. I imagine this looking phenomenal against someone that has a richer, deeper, golden skin tone... it would pop in the most beautiful way!

Sky Blue Satin Asymmetrical Skirt by Skies are Blue , Size 3x — Retail Value $58.00

 

When I saw this skirt included in this month's Fix, I had flashbacks of being in high school and college in the late 90s/early 00s. The youths are all going wild for y2k fashions that were popularized by the likes of Britney Spears, Lindsay Lohan, Paris Hilton, and Ashley Tisdale. I remember skirts like these being worn with the chunky foam Steve Madden sandals, puka shell necklaces, baby butterfly hair clips, glitter gel allover the arms and decolletage, and very thinly plucked eyebrows of that era. My life flashed before my eyes busting out this piece! I was a bit eager to see how it looked because I have been on the hunt for a skirt to wear with this Swimsuits For All suit (that I intend to wear as a bodysuit) since the pandemic began ten million years ago... or so it feels! I was pleased that the skirt fit, it has a nice elastic waistline, and the fabric is more giving than I had initially perceived. I don't hate it, but I don't love it on ME either. I emphasize me because this looks AMAZING on the model on site and will look great on a lot of you babes out there too. I just didn't like how this fit me and the asymetrical cut was further made obvious by my ample dupa pulling up the fabric in the back. I think if this were shorter, like higher/mid calf and didn't have the asymmetrical cut I would be buggin' (as Cher Horowitz, another style icon, once said in the movie, Clueless). It just makes my 5'6 frame look that much shorter, in my opinion. Don't let this all hold you back from giving this cutie a go, though! This could be your dream piece to wear at the beach. I did simple styling by pairing with my new favorite jellies from Torrid, pale pink retro style sunglasses, and some baby blue flower power earrings for a very pastel palette for spring.

Aiden Satin Keyhole Back Blouse by 11 Honoré in Blue, Size 20W — Retail Value $98.00 (similar found here)

 

11 Honoré is an upscale, higher-end clothing brand that caters to plus size women. I love that because I feel that women of all sizes should have access to luxury brands. I, myself, have never tried any of their pieces-- probably because perusing their site the majority of their items range from hundreds to thousands of dollars! Don't get me wrong, I do like treating myself periodically, but the price range is a little too rich for my blood. I was excited to try this shirt, but knew even if I liked it I wasn't going to spend the nearly $100 for this top. I think the most I have paid for a shirt was either from Nooworks or Big Bud Press, which I did so willingly since the companies provide unique designs that are sustainable. Now, looking past the sticker shock, I get why Torey sent this. She was trying to get a sweet matching moment with the skirt. The top and skirt are very close in color, but are sisters and not twins. The difference in the shades is too much for me to ignore, but I wanted to style the top and skirt together as my stylist intended. The material is satin and has no stretch, so I definitely had a lot of fit issues. I need that stretch if it is a longer top that grazes my table top butt. I need it for my ample bosom-- they need their room too! I would need this to be looser, because the back does this weird pin hole pucker on the back of me. It is sad really, because I think this could have had potential! I opted to complete this outfit with oversized white flower power earrings from Femme de Bloom and the Balancing Act mules from MCLC.

Luna One Shoulder Knit Jumpsuit by Kaileigh in Black, Size 3x  — Retail Value $58.00

 

To round out this month's fix, Torey sent me this chic, classic black jumpsuit! Any time I have a one shoulder top on, I can't help but feel like a plus size Debbie Harry! I love this jumpsuit because it has loads of stretch, it is easy to wear and get on and off, and just looks absolutely divine! This is the kind of piece you could wear to the club or a formal event like a wedding. I styled this number with earrings made by yours truly and the same MCLC mules mentioned before for an outstanding black and white look.

The Verdict

This month's Stitch Fix  sadly wasn't a home run. I didn't hate the pieces, I just didn't like the majority of them for me. This fix felt a bit less thoughtful than ones I have received from Torey in the past. My two favorite pieces were the 41 Hawthorn dress and the Kaileigh jumpsuit-- they felt like they fit my style and personality most. The other three pieces weren't for me-- I gravitate towards warmer and brighter colors. These were all very muted cooler tones and the fit/cut/style was questionable on two of the three pieces. Even though this Fix wasn't the finest I have received, I still feel Torey can deliver next month, as she has in the past! I will ensure giving Torey lots of feedback on this Fix. I can't emphasize how important it is to collaborate with your Stitch Fix stylist. Not only do I provide direct feedback, but I also "bookmark" or list pieces as favorites on the site.

Also, I always suggest to give your Pinterest and Instagram-- this helps give your stylist a visual of the styles that appeal to you and ones you wear. It also allows them to see how you are built and how you prefer your clothing to fit. Providing all this information  makes it easier for your stylist to be able to curate items for your dream Fix. Do keep in mind that you also have the ability to personally select pieces for your Stitch Fix as well! This is a fantastic option if you are a shopping fiend much like myself. Were you also aware that Stitch Fix now allows you to shop on their site for clothing items, accessories, foundation garments, and also shoes without getting a monthly Stitch Fix sent to you? This is ideal if you aren't interested in getting a monthly Fix. You can check out their site and buy their in-house brands outright! With all these ways to enjoy Stitch Fix, what are you waiting for?

Can you still get these pieces 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 personal styling service has a $20 styling fee with free shipping and returns. The total retail value of the items inside is $336. The cost of each item is listed alongside it, above, but if I choose to keep at least 5 items, I get a 25% discount. The $20 cost of the box would also be applied to the purchase, meaning I’d end up spending $232 for the whole box. Ultimately, that’s about a 31% discount!

Hi Nicole, great review as always! Have to assume that your stylist went to the SF cupboard and the cupboard was bare because this mish mash doesn’t make much sense for you/your tastes. Can’t imagine that she thought that $100 satin t-shirt went at all with that skirt. There are different shades of the same color but those pieces are so off.

Oh well, there’s always next month!
