Stitch Fix Review

Stitch Fix

It’s all the rage right now. You’re seeing it everywhere on Instagram and blogs. What is it, you say? It’s quite possibly the most efficient and delightful way for folks with busy lives to shop.

Imagine having a personal stylist – I mean, c’mon, we all dream of having one, right? I’m pretty fashionably challenged and I never know what goes with what and I never really branch out of my comfort zone. To be honest, I’m ok with just wearing yoga pants and a baggy shirt all day. Jason, on the other hand, he’d like to see more dressed up and less “frumpy.” Disclaimer: those weren’t his words, those were mine – so don’t go chasing him down the street saying he calls his wife ‘frumpy’!

So with Stitch Fix, every month or so (you schedule it whenever you want), you set up a “fix,” and you get your own box of clothes delivered right to your front door from your personal stylist! You have to pay a $20 styling fee upfront but if you choose to buy any items of clothes in your fix, you can apply that credit towards the item! Say, I got a $28 sweater that I loved. I want to keep it. Well, I would only have to pay $8 more! :)

Now, you’re wondering, “wait, how do they know what I like and what I don’t? How do they know what fits me?” Relaaaax. They’ve got this. When you sign up (it’s invitation only right now so clicky on that link to sign up!) you fill out this really detailed style profile. They ask you what price range you want, what style you like, what you don’t like, what size you are in tops and bottoms, they show you pictures and you tell them whether that’s something you’d wear or not, etc. It’s really in depth so they can zero in on your style.

Ok, so now you have the box, what now?

You open it! Haha :) but seriously - each box comes with 5 items of clothing. Sometimes it’s 4 items of clothing with an accessory.

Each piece of clothing comes with a style tag. It gives you ideas and tips of what you can wear that particular clothing item with. How cool, huh? Like, I never would’ve thought to wear a denim jacket with this shirt. It really gets you out of your comfort zone and gets you to try new things. You don’t always have to love it. Sometimes, if it’s too out of your comfort zone – that’s totally ok! Just send it back! They give you a prepaid envelope that you just drop off within 3 days at your local post office when you’re running errands! 

Ok, let’s give you a preview of my fix!!

This was the Peter Pan collar dotted shirt. I LOVED how this felt. It felt like silk but it wasn’t, it felt like butter, though. I’m still really torn on whether or not to keep it. It’s $58. That’s really steep for a shirt, for me anyway. I never pay that much for a shirt. I’m still heavily debating it. I guess if you love something, you should keep it, right? ;)

This is the shirt from the side. I love how it’s short in the front and longer in the back.

I definitely kept this. The picture seems more aqua blue than it is in real life. In real life it’s actually mint. It was reasonably priced at $38 and…..the best part?

Ta-da! The back! It’s all lace!! It’s not super sheer either so I don’t *have* to wear a white tank top under (I still probably will) but isn’t it dramatic? Like you totally don’t expect that to be on a back of a sweater. Loveeee it. Also, excuse the giant tag that I totally didn’t tuck in.

This was meh. It made me look frumpy and short. It was a crochet dress, which just isn’t me at all. I don’t know, it just wasn’t really flattering. And they included leggings to wear underneath. I wish they didn’t do that cause that counted as an item of clothing and I literally have like 5 pairs of leggings at home already :( oh well. The dress was $58 and the leggings were $38.

Suuuuuper cute statement necklace!!! $38 (a little pricey for my taste, so I returned it)

At the end of your fix, you put everything that you don’t want back into this bag, log back into your Stitch Fix account and tell them what items you kept and which items you didn’t. You also have the chance to tell them why you returned it (or kept it) and how the style fit you and how the fit/cut was, etc.

Overall, I love this service! A lot of the clothes are one-of-a-kind and I don’t see anyone else with them – which is always nice especially since retail stores are so cookie-cutter these days. The clothes are really high quality too. Not some cheap stuff that you’ll wear out after two washes.

The stylist really tries to stick to your price range and sometimes they just can’t get the cheap items, but you never know, you may fall in love regardless! After a few fixes, they actually start to learn your style so the fixes after that become better and better because it’s more stuff that suits your style. Your wallet will get lighter too ;)

    Love this recap!! I’ve heard mixed things about Stitch Fix so I appreciate this review. Now if only I could fast forward to being the same size for more than a minute. :)

    Ahh I’m so torn about whether to sign up!! What do you think? Are you going to keep your subscription? This is a major life decision.

    • 07/25/2013 at 9:02 am

      Well, it’s not really a subscription. It’s not like it charges you every month. It’s only when you want a fix! So yeah, I’m going to keep my account open so whenever I want a fix, I can log in and schedule it :)

    looove stitchfix! I’m wearing one of my shirts I got through it today!

  4. 07/25/2013 at 9:32 am

    I am in LOVE with the back of that striped shirt! Love the necklace but I return all the accessories too. I refuse to pay more than $30 for an accessory. I’m tempted to just tell them not to send me accessories any more so at least I get more of the stuff I know I’m more apt to buy. So glad you finally got a fix with stuff you like :)

    Keep the peter pan collar top!! I love it on you and think it’s totally worth $58.

    I’ll be getting fix #5 in a couple of weeks and so far I’ve only kept 1 pair of jeans and 1 top. So while I haven’t had much luck with my fixes so far, I’m still going to continue to give it a go for a while. I’ve never loved to shop, and now that I have a toddler, it’s almost impossible to find the time. Fingers crossed that they’ll start to “get” my style soon!

    i havent tried it yet because I am sooo not into online shopping but I have been hearing great reviews. I loved your necklace and the lacy sweater – too cute.

    Love StitchFix! I’ll be on my 5th box next week and I can’t wait. Love how you can adjust it, too. I quit getting the jewelry because it was way overpriced & I’d rather have clothes. One thing I’m noticing that’s beginning to be a turn off is every piece of clothing is either hand wash or dry clean. Not thrilled about that, but the clothes are so cute it’s worth it for now.

    Love your choices! I might consider StitchFix after two events: 1)We figure out our budget after we finish decorating our house. 2)I lose my baby weight. lol!!

    Love the Peter Pan collar dotted shirt! I’ve been meaning to try this but when I looked at the website and their options they all sorta frightened me. You give me some hope though! You look adorable! :)

    I haven’t heard of Stitch Fix, but thanks for sharing. =) I’m considering signing up! Btw, loved the mint sweater, especially the back.

  12. 07/25/2013 at 4:53 pm

    So I get my first Stitchfix on Tuesday. I cannot wait! And seriously…I want them to send me that sweater. I LOVE IT!

    Oh my gosh, love this whole concept. Its like having a free stylist and minimal risk too!!! My birthday is next month and going to use some of the money to get my first fix!! I want that striped/lacey sweater bad.. adorable!!!

  14. 07/25/2013 at 6:05 pm

    Love that sweater! I get so jealous when I see people’s stitchfix posts because I returned all 5 of my items when I tried it! :( They totally didn’t get me. I’d love to try again but I don’t want to waste another 20 bucks!

    • 07/25/2013 at 6:12 pm

      Don’t worry – I feel the same. This was my 4th StitchFix box before I actually kept something!

    • 08/01/2013 at 8:33 pm

      It’s by Charlotte Tarantola.

  16. 08/10/2013 at 3:25 pm

    I keep seeing these around and would love to try! But, I just graduated and have no money. Haha.

    At least I still have Forever 21!
