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.)
Let's take a look at this month's selections, shall we?
What's Inside This Month's Fix
Irene Faux Wrap Brushed Knit Maxi Dress by FORTUNE + IVY, Size 3x — Retail Value $58.00
My new stylist, Sara, really hit the nail on the head with this one. This dress is so gorgeous on—it hugs my curves wonderfully and I love the romantic flutter sleeves and high low skirt cut on this piece. High-low cuts kind of even out well for me due to my posterior being so ample. I love, too, that I don't have to worry about tripping in the front on excess fabric. Cute and safe—that's what I like! The fabric is buttery soft and so easy to wear too! I did simple styling with black open toe platform sandals from Torrid and silver hoop earrings my mama gifted me! This is the kind of dress that you could wear in the office or on a casual date with your honey! Due to the deeper toned colors, too, I feel like this could easily transition into fall with patterned tights, booties or platform Mary Janes, and your favorite bike style faux leather jacket.
Taylie Ruffle Strap Dress by Loveappella, Size 3x-Retail Value $74.00
Sara selected this sky blue gingham check dress for me as well this month. This makes me think of Dorothy from The Wizard of Oz in modern day. Shame on me for not styling it with some red shoes and getting my doggy to pose for pictures with me! The dress is made of a light weight, stretchy, cotton material. It is certainly great to wear during our warm, humid summers. I am not sure if this is my style though, per se. Maybe I would like it more if I layered like a mesh shirt or t-shirt underneath? I a not sure. The straps were a bit oversized and kind of fit strangely, but still a very cute detail. I paired this dress with some retro daisy earrings and my trusty Torrid shoes you will be seeing in every single summer review I do!
Brianne Twist Sleeve Knit Tee by Market & Spruce, Size 2x, — Listed Value $58.00
This top by Market & Spruce isn't bad, but not necessarily my favorite either. I think it is due to the background being this dusty pink color that my skin tone blends into. I need something more contrasting like a yellow or a black to make the print on it pop more too. That's my hot take, at least. I feel like this would look stunning on someone with a darker or olive skin tone—it would look so rich and lovely! The top itself is comfortable to wear, lots of stretch, and incredibly easy to wear. It looks great with jeans, but would be great with a pencil skirt or shorts as well. This would look great with dress pants and a blazer at the office or a skirt and wooden open toe platforms.
Warren Split Neck Blouse by Lush, Size 2x — Retail Value $44.00
Speaking of yellow pieces, my new stylist included this blouse. The material is light and great for all year ensembles since it can be layered in colder months. However, the fabric has barely any stretch. I could have stood going up to a 3x, it fits me oddly in my mid section. It is tight on my derriere and bunches at my waist in the front and back. Sadly, it didn't work for me, but this would look great on so many of you! This bright golden yellow top would look great with casual styling like I did with jeans and my white Mary Janes. For summer time, wear this with a tan or black mini skirt and open toed platforms or embellished sandals. In the fall this would look fantastic this with a raspberry or burgundy mini skirt tucked in with opaque tights and ankle booties topped off with a bulky cardigan for extra warmth.
Kaylee Skinny Jean by Liverpool in Indigo, Size 24w — Retail Value $78.00
Finally I got a pair of skinny leg jeans by the Liverpool brand. Listen, I know lots of folks are trying to say skinny cut, high waisted jeans are outdated. I am forty and lived through low waist everything in my late teens and early twenties, therefore, I am here to say LET US MIDDLE AGED BABES LIVE OUR BEST LIVES! I don't miss having my belly or butt hanging out of my jeans, gimme that comfort and security. Also, in the '90s I wore a ton of JNCO jeans and know the heart break of having the bottom of your jeans drenched, covered in mud, and shredded at the ends. I am good with these more tapered styles, thank you! That being said, wear what you like and makes you feel beautiful, my babes. If you are like me and prefer a a skinny leg...if you dig these they come in four other colors! I especially liked the grey and the green styles they offer on the site!
This month's Stitch Fix was a step in the right direction for my style preferences. My favorite selections from my new stylist, Sara, were the FORTUNE + IVY faux wrap dress and the Liverpool jeans. That dress is EVERYTHING! I just felt like a stone cold fox in it—so effortlessly cute AND sexy! I liked the Loveappella dress, but wasn't madly in love. The Lush blouse had fit issues, but the color and pattern were spot on. The Market & Spruce top was cute, but just not as bold as I prefer. I can already tell that Sara is ultra receptive to feedback, so I am eager to see how she and I can collaborate next month. I can't emphasize how important it is to provide feedback one each Fix to your Stitch Fix stylist. Not only do I provide direct feedback, but I also "bookmark" or list pieces as favorites on the site.
I also encourage that you provide your Pinterest and Instagram—these will give your stylist an idea of your body shape and what styles and fit you prefer. 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! The site gives you roughly a dozen items with you in mind that you can select as well for your box, so I might give that a whirl too! This is a wonderful option if you are a self proclaimed shopping fiend much like moi. 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, you simply cannot lose!
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 $290. 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.
