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

Alexandria Tiered Puff Sleeve Dress by Bobeau, Size 3x — Retail Value $58


This dress was one of the items I gave my okay for my stylist to send. I wasn't sure how I would feel about it, but figured I would give it a whirl. So, there are pros and cons. The dress definitely fits, but is kind of baggy. I would be concerned to size down though, because I feel it would be too tight in the chest. The material has a bit of stretch, especially at waist. It is comfortable and would be cute with an oversized, long cardigan and platform combat boots or Docs or in the warmer months with some chunky sandals and big flower power earrings.  I did simple styling by pairing this piece with black fleece lined leggings from Torrid, white loafers, and a pair of acrylic Divine earrings that my darling cousin gifted me. This is a very easy piece to wear to the office, to run errands, or to hang with your friends for a Sunday Fun Day!

Leelie Printed Long Sleeve Faux Wrap Shirt by Calvin Klein, Size 2x-Retail Value $79.00, On Sale for $54.99


If you don't know this about me, I love shades of chartreuse and lime. A lot of folks find these colors distasteful, but I couldn't disagree more. They are so vivid, fun, and make me think of  late 60s and early/ mid 70s decor I love so much. I was pleased to get this shirt since it features so many shades of green and yellow against a black back drop. The top is ultra stretchy and comfortable to wear, plus it shows off the right amount of cleavage. I styled it with a citrus green faux fur coat, my favorite cream western booties, and my go to fleece leggings for a stylish ensemble that is also great to wear whether you are going out for dinner or lounging on your couch binging tv shows with your honey. This would look phenomenal paired with a faux leather mini skirt, fishnets, wristlet bag, statement necklace, and black ankle boots for a fierce look to wear out on the town as well.

Viv Turtleneck Bodysuit by Madewell, Size 3x, — Listed Value $49.50, On Sale for $28.97


Initially, I was a little concerned when Jami sent me a bodysuit. It can be so hit or miss for me getting them on. The crotch buckle is always a struggle! However, Jami sent me one in a size 3x and it was so much less stressful to get on. The material has a lot of stretch and I was able to get it buttoned without an issue. The material is a bit thinner and I thought I could see my chest a bit through the fabric, but I can't see that in the pictures whatsoever. Since I had my leggings on, I wanted to wear the bodysuit over them to show you how it looks better. This outfit had me cracking up because it reminded me of my stage crew years in high school musicals. Made me feel like a plus size Ann Margret, but without any dancing skills. This bodysuit can be worn with anything from torn jeans, over sized glasses, and sneakers, a blazer and trousers for work, or your favorite mini skirt, faux leather biker jacket, and glitter platforms to see your favorite band. The looks will be endless.

Maya Stretch Satin Midi Slip Dress by 41 Hawthorn, Size 3x — Listed Value $72


There is something so quintessentially 90s about slip dresses. I remember being in middle school and living for wearing mine with a t-shirt underneath with slouch socks and FILA oxfords I found at Marshall's. I would complete the look with a beaded choker and be on my way. I think pre-teen NAR's jaw would have dropped over this ensemble. The Madewell bodysuit paired with this stretchy, satin slip dress is simply everything! This piece wasn't too clingy or too baggy-- the fit was just right.  I completed the look with my leggings and chunky Chelsea boots from Torrid. For a touch of a 70s vibe, complete the look with long suede jacket with faux fur trim on the lapel, sleeves, and bottom hem as well as oversized Michael Caine glasses for a funky touch! This would also look adorable paired with a white t-shirt, platform sneakers, and a denim jacket come the spring time. You also could wear it alone with slinky heels, but I personally love how slip dresses look layered.

Caitriona Skirt by Skies Are Blue, Size 3x  — Retail Value $54


I had to do a double take when I first saw this skirt. Initially, I thought this was the same wrap skirt by Madewell that I received back in November. Very similar in print and colors, yes, but not the same. I am so glad this isn't a wrap skirt, because I struggle with getting those on EVERY TIME! This skirt is a pull on, stretchy, tiered red and white floral. This is another piece that reminds me of the early/ mid 90s. I styled it with the same bodysuit, leggings, and boots as before, but in addition paired it with acrylic earrings that spell out SHAKE APPEAL and clear Hetty frames from Wherelight. This would look adorable in warmer months with a crop top and sandals or sneakers as well. This could be a great piece for a Valentine's Day date too!

The Verdict

This month's Stitch Fix had some great pieces! Jami sent some very thoughtful items. Overall, I feel the clothes selected were seasonally appropriate and are versatile enough to be worn throughout the year-- a big plus! I especially loved the 41 Hawthorn slip dress and the Madewell bodysuit-- separately and together! I loved both, but sent them back-- just not in my budget post holidays. 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 be 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! 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 a self proclaimed shop-a-holic 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 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 $312.50. 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. The $20 cost of the box would also be applied to the purchase, meaning I’d end up spending $214.37 for the whole box. Ultimately, that’s about a 31% discount!

That shirt is amazing!

I’ve only gotten one fix (kept everything, the stylist did a great job) but it’s a bit on the pricey side. I really wish you didn’t have to keep the whole box to get the sale price, especially since I normally ship 50% off or more. So I’ve been shopping freestyle during sales. Down the road if I need more clothes I may get another fix, but for now I need to downsize, not get more. 😂

One thing I recently saw in an email was an option to do a yearly upgrade (I think it was $59) so that there is no styling few for the year. The $59 goes towards purchases just like the $20 fee does. That might be a better way to do it for those who get multiple fixes a year but don’t usually keep everything.

Jennifer, thank you so much for the information! I had never heard about that before and I have been reviewing Stitch Fix for years! You learn something new everyday! You are right, sometimes it is more cost effective keeping the whole box in those instances!

Loved everything on you as usual but especially the slip dress. I confess that I have a love of chartreuse also. It somehow goes with my blonde hair but it shouldn’t. Lol.

Calico Cat, thank you! That slip dress was great. And chartreuse doesn’t get a lot of love. It is a great color and looks fantastic paired with oranges and yellows. I could never hate it! Thanks for reading my review and taking the time to comment! I appreciate it!
