Stitch Fix Subscription Box Review – November 2016

Hello Subscription may earn compensation via links in this post. Read the full disclosure


Stitch Fix is a personal styling subscription box. Your stylist will send you 5 pieces based on your profile for you to try on at home and hopefully fall in love with. There are no coupons for Stitch Fix but if you hit the jackpot and keep everything, you save 25% on your whole fix (read below for details).

Don’t forget – Stitch Fix now has boxes for men, and size exchanges! Guys can now sign up for Stitch Fix, and handy size exchanges are available right from the app or website. Checkout will indicate what other sizes are available, and this is fabulous!

Everything always comes wrapped so neatly! It makes it really fun to open!



Every box includes a set of styling cards with suggestions on how to wear the particular item. There’s usually a dressed up (right) and dressed down (left) version for each piece of clothing. I do wish these cards were accessible in your Stitch Fix profile. If you email them they’ll send them via PDF.

I find the styling cards very helpful. I am not a naturally good-at-fashion person and these help a LOT. Even if I don’t keep the pieces I use them as inspiration – like my own personal fashion editor!


Here’s how Stitch Fix works: fill out your style profile! This includes style, budget, what you’re looking for, and you can get as detailed as you want with the notes to your stylist. It really really does help to provide notes to what you’re seeking, and a Pinterest board if you have one!

You will also receive a separate paper with a list of your items. You’ll be charged a $20 styling fee and shipped five items to try on at home. If you keep anything your styling fee will be applied to your order, but if you don’t, you will pay the $20 fee.

The styling fee is so worth it – I never go clothes shopping anymore. I just wait for my fix! If you keep everything you get a 25% discount, so it pays off to be specific in your style profile . You will check out and get charged through your Stitch Fix account. Return the pieces you don’t want in the prepaid mailer (free shipping!).


If I kept everything in the box, this fix would be $232 – about $46 per item (after the styling fee I already paid for).


Everything in my second fix for November. Here’s my first one if you missed it! I love my fixes, I have my frequency set at 2-3 weeks!


Le Lis Etal Cowl Neck Knit Top ($54) Unfortunately this top was a miss for me! I like the space-dyed look of this top but it was really wide and wasn’t flattering. I was bummed because I liked that it was a warm and cozy sweater without too much bulk.


Papermoon Bastille Tulip Sleeve Blouse ($44)  I liked the sleek look of this top/shell, plus the added interest at the neckline and shoulders meant that it would go well with a luxe holiday cuff! The rich burgundy is perfect for this time of year and I thought this was a great day-to-night piece!


The back had some detailing too. This was a really classic pick!


Skies are Blue Nelby V-Neck Blouse ($58) I thought this was really similar to an item in my last pick. I am not wild about the floral pattern but it’s trendy and in season, just my personal preference.


This top had cute detailing in the back too!


Le Lis Aldama Scoop Neck Blouse ($48) Now this one looks a little dumpy on the mannequin but suits me perfectly! The scoop neck is great, as are the 3/4 sleeves. I saw this and immediately thought of wearing it with a neon-bright statement necklace!


Octavia Ellis Elephant Print Infinity Scarf ($28) I love that they sent me this scarf and I really wanted to keep it, but to be totally honest we had to style the crap out of it to even show the elephants when it’s on. It was too fussy for me – if you just put it on like a normal infinity scarf you just can’t see the elephants.


And these elephants are too amazing to hide! I was disappointed about it but hopefully, I’ll get some more critter prints soon – they’re my favorite.

This was another great fix, although all the pieces didn’t work for me I found one that I really loved and needed to be in my closet now! After so many fixes (they have now surpassed my age!) you’d think I’d get tired of them, but I really don’t. They have saved my sanity and my wardrobe!

    Loved the burgundy blouse and the printed blouse. I am getting spoiled seeing everyone model their clothes. Your turn next.
