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
Marianne Textured Sweater by French Connection, Size 2x — Retail Value $78
I don't know if it was Ashley's intention, but I love that this sweater and skirt give off a modern day Velma from Scooby Doo! I wish I had the knee socks, because I would have went all out! Alas, I do love this sweater, period. The color is so vibrant, the knit is comfortable, and I know it will look fantastic whether paired with this skirt, jeans, faux leather leggings, or baggy printed wide legged pants. This piece is such a versatile staple and truly injects warmth into a foreboding season like our impending winter. I love that it is not too fitted or oversized either, it fits like a dream. I opted to pair this with the Skies Are Blue skirt, my trusty white Mary Janes, and retro earrings I adore from Undoubtedly Mad!
Paper Bag Waist Skirt by Skies Are Blue in Burgundy, Size 3x-Retail Value $54.00
This is absolutely perfect for the fall. I love the rich tones of the wine burgundy shade and in my mind, corduroy screams fall! The fabric reminds me of many a picture day in elementary school where my mom would have me in a strongly pattered, bold sweater with matching corduroys. I used to give her guff for getting me bright pink ones, but I take that back. I would wear some bubble gum pink corduroys now as an adult, too. I digress!
This skirt has loads of stretch and a great paper bag style elastic waist. I am pretty bodacious though and my rump and belly are on full display-- I am not mad about it! I do wish that the vertical buttons weren't on the front. The tension is noticeable when looking directly at them. Otherwise, this skirt is great. I love it with the sweater that Ashley sent my way. I can also envision it paired with a body hugging black turtleneck and knee high boots a modern, yet very hip 60s throwback look. Complete the ensemble with a bold, long, statement necklace. Also could go more casual and pair the skirt with your favorite vintage band t-shirt, faux fur trimmed coat, tights, and ankle booties. So many great looks from one single, adorable mini skirt!
Julian Knit Jumpsuit by Kaileigh, Size 3x, — Listed Value $68.00
Oh my gosh, yinz! I absolutely fell in love with this jumpsuit. It killed me to send it back, but I couldn't justify keeping it since I have quite a few jumpsuits. This one is so perfect and I felt so beautiful while wearing it. I love the length of the sleeves, the v-neck that shows the ittiest bit of of cleavage, and even the cut in the legs. I love how they are slightly wide, but not too wide. The cropped style works great on these too. The fabric has loads of stretch and this piece was comfortable and easy to get on and off. I paired these with warmer weather jelly sandals since it has been in the 70s in my neck of the woods; they are off white so Beverly Sutphin CANNOT come for me! If you want to make this more fall oriented for the cooler weather, there are a few easy ways to layer this piece to make it more cozy. You can opt to wear a turtleneck under this, either black or maybe an or orange or green to bring out the pops of color in the flowers. Also, can layer with a longer sweater/cardigan or coatigan as well. Top the ensemble off with ankle booties and a wide brimmed hat and you are ready to meet up with friends for a pumpkin spice latte.
Did I mention... IT HAS POCKETS!
Amandine Knit Dress by Kaileigh, Size 3x — Listed Value $48.00
These style dresses are generally my favorite. I love the crossover style bodice, it is so flattering on my chest. The floral print is great on this-- it isn't too summery, so you can easily transition it into cooler months. This looks great with sandals, but it will look equally fantastic with a black faux leather biker jacket, black opaque tights, and black western booties or combat boots for a more 90s look. Think of Janeane Garofalo as in the early and mid 90s for example mixed with her character, Vickie Miner, from Reality Bites. Not only is this dress cute, but it is incredibly stretchy and easy to wear.
Elisse Knit Surplice Dress by 41 Hawthorn, Size 3x — Retail Value $54.00
Okay, so if the last dress screamed Vickie Miner to me, this one does so much more! So if you have ever seen the movie, Reality Bites, you might be familiar with a scene where Lelaina and Vickie are in a diner, smoking and conversing. This dress reminds me of Vickie's in that particular scene! Her's was most definitely vintage (if not then, it is now since the movie is close to thirty years old), but this modern take provides isn't polyester and probably provides not only more breathability in the fabric, but also stretch. This dress definitely nods to styles of the 70s and 90s; it is timeless, yet modern. This is a piece I easily would have worn at my office job with a cardigan, tights, and Mary Janes. This would also look great with a jean jacket or thick knit cardigan and knee high boots for an ultra fall outfit!
This month's Stitch Fix was, to be blunt, pretty awesome! Ashley picked out some stellar items for me. I LOVED the jumpsuit and both dresses she included. Heck, I actually liked every single item she sent my way! I also appreciated that she took the time to really check out my profile on Stitch Fix and pictures that show my style. I truly can't emphasize how important it is to provide that information on subscription sites. Always give feedback! Not only do I provide direct feedback, but I also "bookmark" or list pieces as favorites on the site for further direction. The skirt Ashley sent me was one, of many, items I have bookmarked. This is such a wonderful tool!
I know I sound like a broken record in saying this, but I also can't encourage enough that you provide your Pinterest and Instagram. These will be great assets to your stylist; you are providing visuals on your style, body shape, and how and what you prefer to adorn yourself. Providing all this information makes it easier for your stylist to be able to curate items for your dream Fix. Another plus is that you 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. This is a wonderful option if you are one that loves to shop till you drop such as 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!
