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

Beatriz Button Down Smocked Back Midi by 41 Hawthorn, Size 3x — Retail Value $68.00

 

My stylist, Sara, selected this dress for me because "of the bold black and white checkered pattern and fun, summer style!" I am all for it! This piece is very classic; it can easily can be worn through out the years! The material is light, easy, and breezy! I envision wearing this to see a movie or band play in a park or to a bridal or baby shower as well. I also appreciate the elastic stretch panel on the back-- it allows this dress to fit if you are in between sizes or if you want to layer a top underneath. Though I styled the dress alone, one could easily wear a short sleeved t-shirt or blouse underneath for versatility and multiple dimensions.  I could also see this translating into different seasons-- imagine this with a turtleneck underneath, tights, booties, and a faux fur coat. Make a monochromatic look by wearing a black and white polka dot pussybow blouse and platform Mary Janes as well! The looks are endless. I kept it simple and fun for the summer by wearing this with flower sunnies by Zee Opticals, my fave blue jellies from Torrid, and Chairy earrings by Purple Banana. The word of the day, kids is: CUTE!

Beatriz Maxi Dress by 41 Hawthorn, Size 3x-Retail Value $78.00

 

I was confused looking at the dress names for both of these 41 Hawthorn dresses. I get it now, though! They are both the same cut and style with the smocked back, minus the button down detail. Different fabric prints and lengths, too. I should have taken advantage of the adjustable straps in the back because I simply do not know what is going on with the fit in the chest of this dress-- it looks a bit lopsided. Sorry folks! That user error issue aside, I think this dress is absolutely adorable. I love the abstract paint blob floral print. The primary color palette with touches of sky blue and pale pink against the black background truly pops. Dresses like these are great for summer because you can just toss them on and look put together. When I worked in the office, I would leap out of bed after pressing the snooze button twenty times, throw on a dress like this with cute shoes, and somehow get a bunch of compliments at work. It always blew my mind! You too can look amazing on the go in this dress! I paired this dress with bejeweled, chunky, plastic hoop earrings to bring out the colors on the dress and my favorite summer platforms from Torrid! For cooler days, just throw on a jean jacket or light knit cardigan.

Vivienne Knit Midi Dress by Nine Britton, Size 3x, — Listed Value $58.00

 

The V in Vivienne stands for VA VA VOOM, does it not? Or maybe the V is for vamp, but either way, this dress is going to make you feel like a GODDESS, I assure you! The style and cut reminds me of a pinup wiggle-style dress a sultry vixen like Marilyn Monroe would have worn. The dress is made modern with the stretch jersey knit fabric and the abstract polka dot print. I love this material-- it is buttery soft, has loads of stretch, and is incredibly comfortable to wear. Wear this on a date with your honey with a fringed shawl-- all eyes will be on you! Or heck, just wear it for yourself, because it will make you feel super duper cute! I did simple styling with this piece by pairing it with rhinestone disco ball earrings and my aforementioned Torrid platform sandals.

Tia Jumpsuit by 11 Honoré, Size 22w — Retail Value $248.00

 

Sara also included this 11 Honoré jumpsuit that I had favorited. 11 Honoré is a plus size clothing brand that is very high-end and upscale. I have only tried out one other piece from them in my late Spring Stitch Fix review, so I was eager to give another piece a go! I must say, this material in the jumpsuit surprised me. It is rather substantial, a thicker canvas like material, but somehow buttery soft with some stretch. There is elastic in the back and the tie at the waist to ensure you get more of cinched and fitted look. I love this detail-- your girl hates a boxy, ill-fitting jumpsuit. I appreciate the rusty tomato shade, but I feel this might look even better in fall than summer time. I definitely would have worn this in the office despite all the buttons-- that is a drag when you have to use the lavatory! This could be worn at the office, at brunch with friends, or a the club to see your favorite band play. I wore the same earrings and shoes as I did with the Nine Britton dress, but there are so many ways to style this number. These would look great with large acrylic statement earrings and gold ankle booties or large gold hoops and star-printed platform wedges or boots. This piece is incredibly versatile and can be worn so many different ways that the price point makes it worth it! All in all, I am pleased with this jumpsuit and am eager to try other 11 Honoré pieces in the future, especially if they are as well-made as this jumpsuit!

3/4 Sleeve V-Neck Rumple Blouse by Vince Camuto, Size 2x  — Retail Value $74.00

 

Finally, we have the green floral print Vince Camuto shirt that Sara selected for me. I love the bold kelly green of this piece-- it is incredibly vibrant! I appreciate the thoughtfulness being selecting this piece, but it is a no-go for me. Firstly, I have issues with the fit-- it is too tight. I certainly could have stood to get the 3x. It bunches up at the middle section, especially in the back right above my butt, due to my hips and because the material has limited stretch. The other issue I have with this piece is that it has a few damage marks. On the right sleeve between the wrist and elbow, there were some scratch like marks on the fabric. That all being said, I might sing a different tune had the blouse been in better condition and been the right size for me. This is a top I definitely would have worn in the office either with jeans, dress pants, or a skirt. I opted to show it to yinz with my black platform Torrid heels and a black stretch pencil skirt. To up the sass quota, wear this with hot pink wide legged dress pants, heels, and oversized sunglasses for a kitschy, retro vibe!

The Verdict

This month's Stitch Fix had so many great pieces. My favorite selections from my new stylist, Sara, were the 11 Honoré jumpsuit and the black and white checked Beatriz dress by 41 Hawthorn. Both pieces are so versatile and such classic styles. I know I would get so many outfits all year from both pieces. I also loved the other 41 Hawthorn dress that she included as well the slinky and sexy Nine Britton dress. The only item I really had issues with, sadly, was the Vince Camuto top she picked just for me! I am so sorry, Sara, but your thoughtfulness is extremely appreciated! I love how receptive to feedback Sara has been-- this month's selections being proof! I am eager to see how she and I can collaborate next month as well. 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 can't suggest enough 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. I love this feature because I love to shop and I am very particular on styles and fit on my body.  This is a wonderful option if you are a self proclaimed shopaholic like me. 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 $526. 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 $374.500 for the whole box. Ultimately, that’s about a 31% discount!

This box was a winner. You wear clothes so well, Nicole! I am a huge fan of quickly putting on a dress to look pulled-together. My favorite look on you here was the paint-blob floral but I also think the green of that blouse really suits you.

So every time you need to go to the bathroom, you have to unbutton the jump suit? Seriously??? Why would anyone bother to wear this ?

Yes, Julia that is how rompers and jumpsuits work. You have to essentially get naked when you use the toilet. There is a great video meme by one of my fave tiktok users that touches on it: https://www.tiktok.com/@shinypretties/video/7115202761255324971?is_copy_url=1&is_from_webapp=v1&lang=en hahaha. Personally, I love how they look as a one piece, but yeah the bathroom part can be a total drag. To each their own on it, for sure!

Lol! I love the look of jumpsuits but just can’t deal with the hassles of undressing to go to the bathroom. Skirts and dresses FTW!
