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

Audrey Cropped Button Front Cardigan by Love Ellie, Size 2x — Retail Value $46


Fall is here and it has been fairly warm in my neck of the woods, but the weather will soon be turning. A cardigan like this one is perfect for layering or wearing it alone like I did. This piece fits perfectly-- not too oversized or too tight. The knit is thick enough to keep you cozy, but not too thick either. I would have loved to receive the pink version of this sweater, but I have no complaints since it matches the Skies are Blue skirt so well! This cardigan will be a staple for the fall and winter months; you can easily wear it with a mock turtleneck maxi dress and ankle booties or your favorite band shirt and jeans. The looks will be endless, making the $46 price tag a heck of a deal!

Croc Embossed Mini- Skirt with Slit in Olive by Skies Are Blue , Size 3x-Retail Value $54.00


Wow, what a chic skirt! I love faux leather skirts this time of year and this one certainly delivers. The fabric has so much stretch and give, dare I say it-- this skirt is rather easy and comfortable to wear. Up the 60s/70s retro vibes in this by pairing with a black long sleeved turtleneck, opaque black tights, knee high boots,  oversized round glasses, a long chain pendant, and newspaper boy hat (optional). I did simple styling since it was still rather warm out by wearing this with the Love Ellie sweater and completing the look with MCLC Balancing Act mules.

Scout Tie Front Cropped Top by Daisy & Delilah, Size 2x, — Listed Value $46.00


Koran also sent along this retro top that gives me peasant blouse vibes of the late 60s. It would easily look great with a pair of jeans, especially flare legs, but I love it styled with the Skies are Blue faux croc skirt. Due to our little heat wave, I styled with Mary Janes. Imagine, though, this outfit paired with opaque tights, ankle booties, and a long coatigan for extra Autumn vibes.

Iza Off the Shoulder Dress by City Chic, Size 22w — Listed Value $99.00


Normally, I would make a gripe about a summer dress being included in a fall box, but our weather has been in the 70s lately. We have been having a second summer of sorts, a last hooray before we get a blizzard next week, I am sure! I digress, let's get back to the dress! This dress is adorable and the cherry pattern would have been something 2002/2003 Nicole would have drooled over. I was obsessed with anything with cherries back then. I had little cherry earrings and plastic alligator hair clips that were cherry shaped for my bleach blonde "anime hair" (as a boyfriend back then called the style). I even had a wallet/cigarette case that was bedazzled in rhinestones in the pattern of cherries. This is a bit of a full circle moment to be wearing something at forty that I loved at twenty, but all the fashion y2k styles have been steeped in nostalgia for me. I love the stretch bodice and the fit of this dress is so dang flattering. The fabric is lighter and ideal for warmer weather months. One could easily winterize this with fishnets and creepers or saddle shoes and a faux leather biker jacket or cheetah print faux fur.

I almost forgot to mention-- IT HAS POCKETS!

Rica Knit Crop Jumpsuit by Kaileigh, Size 3x  — Retail Value $58.00


Okay, before anyone makes a comment about how this is not appropriate for cooler weather months, I beg to differ. The fabric is a slinkier stretch material; thick enough to be able to be worn all year. I did model the jumpsuit alone, but this can easily be layered and look phenomenal. For a more casual ensemble, I would pair it with a white novelty or band shirt underneath, Chuck Taylor sneakers, and a jean jacket. For a more retro look, I would opt to style it with a long sleeved mock turtleneck, chunky heeled pointy too ankle boots, large hoop earrings, a fur trimmed 60s inspired coat, and large oversized glasses. The jumpsuit is so stretchy and easy to layer with, the looks will be endless.

The Verdict

This month's Stitch Fix had some fun pieces! Koran sent along all items that I had picked out. Were some of the items less seasonal appropriate than others-- yes, but each piece can be made to worn all year. The beauty is, I can tell my stylist that for the next box. I can request more sweaters, lounge wear, or coats if need be. 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 know I sound incredibly redundant, 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 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 $303. 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 $207.25 for the whole box. Ultimately, that’s about a 31% discount!

That City Chic dress takes you back to the early aughts, Nicole, and takes me back to the 90’s and my love of all things Mary Engelbreit!
Thanks for the great review and I’ll take a cue from you and not mention seasonal appropriateness! 😉

Hahaha you are a-okay! And omg, I had forgotten about Mary Engelbreit. I googled her for a refresher– I see what you mean! I remember her work being everywhere during that period, and pretty distinctive! I am a bit late on responding, but if you celebrate Thanksgiving, I hope you had a great one, Maddie!
