Stitch Fix

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

Parika Tie Detail Ruffle Dress by Skies Are Blue, Size 3x — Retail Value $78


This dress was, by far and away, my favorite piece Jami sent me this month. You probably can tell simply by looking at me that my favorite color combo is orange with shades of pink. Certainly, this dress is more on the magenta/purple side, but it looks stellar with the orange floral print. This piece makes me think more of fall due to the deep rich shades, but since it is a lighter fabric, this could easily be worn all year. The waist has elastic to add definition and there is second layer of fabric in the skirt part to give more coverage. I opted to do simple styling by wearing this with leggings and boots, both from Torrid. I would top it off with a faux leopard print coat for some timeless pattern clashing. One could easily wear this dress in the spring with orange or pink platforms like these and over sized glasses as well!

Abby Knit Midi Dress by Nine Britton, Size 3x-Retail Value $58.00, On Sale for $54.99


The 90s are alive in this frock as well as the last one! I am loving it! I was a teen in the mid/late 90s, so this resurgence of floral slip dresses just takes me back. This particular dress is great since it is a midi length and is made of a soft, stretchy, breathable jersey/cotton fabric. This is a great piece you can easily throw on and look put together-- big win! I paired the piece with leggings and boots, but toss on a big, oversized, bulky knit cardigan in a mustard or rust shade and you are set for the end of winter/early spring weather. For warmer weather, toss the boots and leggings and go with a t-shirt underneath and cute Mary Janes or sandals.

Melva Cowl Neck Maxi Dress by Taylor, Size 22w, — Listed Value $98, On Sale for $28.97


Though the holidays have passed, it is still winter and the velvet shall still be worn! This rich purple maxi dress has loads of stretch and is incredibly comfortable to wear. I downplayed it with the boots I had on with every piece in this review, but I do like dressing down fancier clothing items. Imagine this dress paired with a black turtleneck underneath and a 60s inspired long camel hued leather coat with faux fur/sherpa trim. It would look phenomenal! You also, can obviously dress it up with strappy metallic heels and big statement, rhinestone hoop earrings!

Scene Sweater Rib Top by LNA, Size 2x — Listed Value $112


A black top is certainly great to have in your wardrobe, it is a staple piece! I feel mixed about the off the shoulder/ slightly asymmetrical style of this piece. It isn't bad, it just feels somewhat dated to me. The top has ample stretch, the fabric for being thin isn't terribly sheer, so that is a plus too. I was surprised, however, to see this piece priced at $112. Certainly, the style is fine, as is the quality too--but I would pay at max $40 or $50, if not less. This is an item that definitely will get a lot of wear since it is rather versatile, but I couldn't justify buying it myself due to the price. This top will look fantastic paired with a faux leather mini skirt, fishnets, and ankle boots for a night out on the town or with your favorite wide legged trouser and blazer for the office. The looks are truly endless with this piece.

Bagulaa Pant by Raga, Size 3x  — Retail Value $98


Okay. There is no other way to say it-- I absolutely hate these pants. I hate these pants more than anything I have reviewed in the last five years. I cannot mince words, I cannot sugar coat my feelings. These pants are a nightmare that will haunt me for years to come. I would punt them into the sun if I could.  The worst part is-- I thought these were going to be adorable from the previews. I have never been more wrong in my life. I hope you all know that I am snort laughing while typing up this review because it is just all so ridiculous to me! I debated on not posting all the pics of me in these pants since... the fit and cut on me is downright graphic/NSFW and leaves little to the imagination.

However, I pride myself on being transparent and honest with you babes. I am not holding back now! For one, the fabric is a strangely thin nylon/silk feeling material. It almost feels like the same fabric slips from department stores are made from. There is no give whatsoever. Yes, there is elastic at the waist, but that is all you got for flexibility from these soul crushers, my dears! They are meant to be flowy and breezy in style. On the model on the Stitch Fix site, they look darling and precious! I am curious to know if she sized up possibly to achieve such a fit. I am generally a 3x in bottoms, but you would think I had shoved myself into a 1x or 2x. The pants on me look incredibly low waisted and are digging into me in every crevice. I did not sit in them because I was concerned about them shredding off of my body, Incredible Hulk style.

Even though these pants were an abomination for me, it doesn't mean they won't serve you well! One's trash is another's treasure, my loves! I adore the color palette and the awesome retro print-- that is what made these pants appealing to me in the first place.  I can imagine these looking great for summer since they are an immensely light weight material. You could wear them with a white t-shirt and sandals at the beach. Toss on a jean jacket when it gets cooler out. If you aren't shy about pattern clashing, I say go all out and wear these with pink metallic platform heels and a leopard print crop top for extra flair. Or even better, replacing the leopard print crop top with a sequin crop top for disco ball realness! I love a bold, glitzy moment, don't you?

The Verdict

This month's Stitch Fix had some decent pieces! Jami sent some very thoughtful items. The Skies Are Blue and Nine Britton dresses were my favorite by far. Both had fantastic floral prints and color schemes. Your girl cannot resist anything orange and pink/magenta, of course! I am still trying to be more frugal, so I returned all the items this month. Upon sending the items back, 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. I have received various items in the past I have bookmarked, so I definitely suggest going through the site to do the same!

Not to risk being a broken record,  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 that much easier for your stylist to compile a dream fix for you! 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 selects. I love this feature because it allows me to tailor the box to my liking.

This is a wonderful option if you are a self proclaimed shopping fiend 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 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 $444.00. 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 $333.00 for the whole box. Ultimately, that’s about a 31% discount!
