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
Lurex Mock Neck Midi Dress by BB Dakota x Steve Madden, Size 3xx — Retail Value $79
Honestly, this might be my very favorite of the selections sent to me this month! This BB Dakota and Steve Madden collab is fantastic as a staple sleeveless midi (though, more on my 5'6 frame a maxi), but has some added glitz with the glitzy green threading. We are going into holiday season and this would be an awesome dress to wear to the office holiday party and other festivities. The dress is made from an extra stretchy, comfortable knit. I probably could have stood to get the 2x, but I liked how the 3x hugged my frame, but not too tightly. I opted to pair it with some disco ball earrings, silver Kira wedges from B.A.I.T Footwear, and a checkerboard faux fur coat by Eloquii that I reviewed for Dia & Co earlier in the year for an elegant, yet kitschy ensemble. One could also make this more casual by pairing it with platform sneakers or Crocs, hoops, and a faux leather biker jacket. Sadly, since I already have a lot of glam holiday dresses, I couldn't justify keeping this beauty!
Eloise Mixed Media Sweater by Design History , Size 2x-Retail Value $78.00
I generally love a puff sleeve, and this top is no exception. I love that you have a knit material paired with a sheer organza like fabric. This amplifies the piece and takes it from something more everyday and ordinary to something more chic and formal. A shirt like this looks equally great with a pencil skirt and glitter platforms to jeans and flats for an Audrey Hepburn inspired ensemble. I am a maximalist at heart and decided to style this top with the same wedges and earrings as I did the last piece, but paired with hot pink, crushed velvet, stretchy wide leg pants from Target last year (find similar here) and my fave Sasha glasses from Wherelight. For date night, pair this with a black faux leather mini skirt, black tights, ankle booties, and a beret for a very sexy, yet classic look. FYI, this top is on sale on Stitch Fix too, so get it while it's hot!
Holly Puffy High Neck Sweater in Green by Vero Moda, Size 2x, — Listed Value $68.00
This was definitely my second favorite item, and a piece I almost kept. I regret sending it back since it is now sold out on the site. I also must apologize for some of the pictures of these outfits from behind. My photographer, aka my boyfriend of six years, and I did not notice the tags. He was pressed for time and we were trying to get all these shots while it was still light out. I am a stickler, so it is driving me bonkers each time I look at these pics, but I digress! Let's get back to the greatness of the top. For one, the knit is not too thick and extremely stretchy and comfortable. I love how it looks with this five year old Eloquii skirt I reviewed from Dia & Co when I first started with MSA! Paired with silver hoops and shoes, this top could easily be paired under a sleeveless jumpsuit or overalls for a super adorable look! Then, of course, I love this bright lime green color! Our winters tend to get cold, so I love to bring pops of color into our grey atmosphere during that time. The puff sleeves give a touch of 80s nostalgia for me that I love as well! Wear this with faux leather leggings and heels or oxfords for a fire look this holiday season!
Ullia V Neck Woven Dress in Navy by FORTUNE + IVY, Size 3x — Listed Value $54.00
Whelp, if this is not a Thanksgiving or Friendsgiving dress, I don't know what is! The shades of the floral pattern just scream fall to me. I paired this piece with open toe sandals, but honestly this would look phenomenal styled with mustard or rust colored tights, tan ankle boots, and a deep navy or cognac coatigan. I personally go for bolder and brighter prints, but I can recognize the preciousness of this dress. The fabric itself has limited stretch and is sheer on the sleeves and bottom layer on bottom hem. I could also see styling this like an extra from Almost Famous in a fur trimmed suede coat, pattered fishnets, large oversized sunglasses, and a large brimmed hat for a retro late 60s/early 70s look.
Bandana Flower Wrap Miniskirt by Madewell, Size 24 — Retail Value $79.50
And finally, we have this adorable skirt from Madewell. The flower bandana inspired print is super cute, but goodness gracious, TRUE wrap skirts and I do not get along. I struggle with the wrap dresses as well. It takes me an extended period of time to determine what string goes in what slit and how to tie it in a manner that doesn't look atrociously sloppy. This skirt, I have no idea if I have it on correctly, but I tried for yinz! This piece was rather roomy. I am glad my stylist sent me a size 24, but I wonder if the 22 would have fit better or would have been too tight. This particular skirt was a tad loose in the waist, but it worked out with tucking in my turtleneck shirt. The material has limited stretch and is rather lightweight. This is ideal for spring, summer, and early fall. In the winter, if you choose to wear it, it could look awesome opaque tights or fleece lined leggings paired with a combat style boot and a thick coatigan. In the warmer months, go without the tights and style it with platform wedges like mine or sneakers as well as a t-shirt and jean jacket or faux leather moto jacket for fall. The looks you can turn out are endless with this cutie of a skirt!
This month's Stitch Fix had some fantastic pieces! Jennifer sent along all items that I had picked out. Overall, I feel the items selected were seasonally appropriate and great for the upcoming holiday season. I especially loved the BB Dakota x Steve Madden dress and the Vero Moda sweater. The greens are both great for the winter holidays and beyond. I made sure to provide ample feedback on my opinions on the style and fit of each item to my stylist. 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 my stylist sent me was one, of many, items I have bookmarked. This is such a wonderful tool!
I have said it once and I will say it again, 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! Each month after providing my feedback and my my next box date is selected, I am given the option to choose five of the pieces from a dozen or so my stylist chooses. I love this feature because it allows me to tailor the box to my liking. 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 can't 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 $358.50. 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.
