Stitch Fix
3.5 overall rating
255 Ratings | 56 Reviews

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. 

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

Keeney Knit Romper by Kaileigh, Size 2x — Retail Value $54.00


Usually, I try to leave my favorite item to review for last, but I couldn't resist posting this romper first! When I tried this on, I was incredibly impressed by the fit and style. It reminded me of another romper I reviewed for Stitch Fix. Don't you know, I actually DID review the same style romper in another fabric print in a 2021 review! I also decided to keep this one like I did two years ago! Talk about de ja vu! I am a strong believer in if you like a piece of clothing, shoes, jewelry, etc. to get it in various colors and prints or duplicates, especially if you get the items on deep discount. However, the ironic and hilarious part to me is that I decided on keeping this BEFORE knowing it was the same exact style piece I kept two years ago. Hey, if it works, it works, right? You are probably asking yourself, "What is so great about this romper that you have to have it in two different fabric prints?" First off, the material is so comfortable; it is incredibly soft and has ample stretch! Secondly, the tie at the waist cinches and snatches me in so wonderfully! I also love the longer sleeves-- perfect for wearing on cooler summer nights or layered with tights and boots in the fall and winter months. The cut is roomy, but not too baggy-- it fits like it was made for me. Lastly, IT HAS POCKETS! Deep ones too!

I opted to wear all orange accessories to go with my hair. Some babes choose to style items to match their make up, I go the extra mile to coordinate my shoes and jewelry to my hair. My orange Megan platforms from the Melissa brand add not only a touch of color, but some funky fun! I think this will look fantastic with the same shoes, tights, a faux fur trimmed 60s style coat, and over sized round glasses for an ensemble that is both retro, yet modern and on trend.

Morell Knit Midi Dress by Wisp, Size 22-Retail Value $78.00


Speaking of lovely, retro prints-- how adorable is this dress? I love the navy and kelly green, but that floral pattern is simply Chef's kiss! Mwah! This dress is made from a soft and immensely stretchy material like the Kaileigh romper. This dress is definitely something I would have worn in the office pre- pandemic all year! It is easy to just throw on, but you still look effortlessly put together. Trust me, I lived in dresses like these at the office and would get mounds of compliments. I could come in with no make up and my hair barely dressed but would still be told I looked like I was "dressed up" due to having a piece like this on. Go figure!

I did simple styling with the earrings my stylist, Jami, included for me as well my trusty summer shoes by Crocs. The weather is slowly cooling down here, so on those chillier later summer nights, I would just toss on a jean jacket. In fall and winter, this would look fantastic with a turtleneck layered underneath, tights, big statement earrings or a long chained necklace, and completed with ankle booties. I think a short sleeved button down underneath would look cute too!

Ollie Linear Crystal Statement Earrings by Towne & Reese, — Listed Value $30


Jami is aware of my love for all that is bright and bold clothing as well as accessories. These abstract earrings are charming and festive for the oncoming holiday season soon approaching. I just made myself gasp out loud thinking that Thanksgiving is roughly two months away! These earrings aren't heavy at all, but then again, I am accustomed to very large and ostentatious statement jewelry. Yinz will scoff at this: I do find them cute, but they are still too timid for yours truly. That all being said, I do enjoy these earrings and think they would add a touch of joy and warmth to an outfit as laid back as a t-shirt and jeans to a bright magenta dress for fun date or outing.

Smocked Tie Hem Blouse by Calvin Klein, Size 2x — Listed Value $79.50


I won't lie to yinz, I was a bit concerned this top would not fit me since the fabric has limited stretch. However, I was wrong, it not only fit but was rather roomy. The cut and style allow for this piece to be more comfortable. I love the bold cerulean blue animal print that almost reminds me of abstract ocean spray. The fabric is rather light weight, so it is phenomenal for these late summer days that run between the 70s and 80s. I threw this on with a pencil skirt, my previously mentioned Crocs, and fun silver hoop statement earrings. This would have been something I definitely would wear in my office days, whether with a skirt, trousers, or jeans. This would look great paired with a mustard yellow skirt and fun platform heals. I think the blue and yellow would look quirky and stunning together!

Berkeley Peplum Blouse by Nine Britton, Size 2x  — Retail Value $44


Finally, we have a bubble gum pink peplum blouse. I don't know about yinz, but I am a bit shocked that peplum tops are making this comeback. I was hoping they were left behind in 2010, but the older I get, I am accustomed to seeing all fashion trends return or repeat. Some, I welcome back with open arms. Peplums, eh, I am in different about. This newer variety seems to be more like peasant tops meet peplums. The fabric on this particular piece is incredibly light weight, but has a lot of give and stretch. Another example of this is the top Jami sent me for last month's Fix. I do like the color of this one, but I am just a bit ambivalent otherwise. Maybe I would like this more styled with low cut jeans for a more Y2K Britney vibe? Oddly, I apparently bookmarked this top! I do love that Jami sent me this piece so I could give it a whirl. You never know till you try!

The Verdict

This month's Stitch Fix had some pieces I absolutely adored! I am most excited about the romper that I purchased! I want to try to get in a wear of it before the weather gets cooler.  My stylist, Jami, truly takes to heart what might appeal to me in each and every selection. I always can see her efforts; she often will include items from my bookmarks to ensure I get a Fix with me in mind. I am going to make sure to provide ample feedback on my opinions on the style and fit of each item to Jami to help her further for the following month's Fix. I truly can't say enough how crucial it is to provide that information on subscription sites. Feedback is crucial! Not only do I provide direct feedback, but I also "bookmark" or list pieces as favorites on the site for further direction.

Not to risk sounding like a broken record, but I also can't encourage enough that you provide your Pinterest and Instagram links. These will be great assets to your stylist; you are providing visual aids on your style, body shape, and preferences on how to adorn and decorate your body. This is an essential tool to help your stylist send you your dream Fix! An additional 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. This is a great option for a self proclaimed shop-aholic much 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 $285.50 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 $194.12 for the whole box. Ultimately, that’s about a 31% discount!
