Stitch Fix November 2016 Review

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

stitch-fix-november-2016-boxStitch 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 $211 – about $42 per item (after the styling fee I already paid for).


Everything in my fix for November.


Daniel Rainn Bevvy Crochet Detail Floral Knit Top ($68) Loved this top – especially the splash of fun fall florals!  I thought it would make me look pregnant, but it turned out to be an incredibly flattering look, probably something to do with the deep neckline.


The back amply covered my ample rear end, and kept the focus up top! This was a great choice for someone who’s more round in the middle like me!stitch-fix-november-2016-6

Brixon Ivy Mandrake Embroidered Bib Blouse ($64) I absolutely loved the style of this top, but it was quite snug. The website said that I could size up, but the app didn’t say that, although I looked at different times, so if you do need to exchange you might try looking at both. Style -wise this was perfect. Ultimately I decided not to exchange because I wasn’t sure if the larger size was fit (this was really snug! I mean, I got it on my body and all that but was afraid of exchanging to get stuck with something that wouldn’t fit).


Market & Spruce Galapagos Cross Bar Dolman Knit Top ($54) My stylist really nailed this fix – dolmans are some of my favorite shirts!  I loved the soft enveloping fabric!


The back brought a lot of interest to this top with the woven cross bar accent.


Market & Spruce Alberta Lace Shoulder Pullover ($74) This was another favorite, although it was pricey for what it was – a grey sweater with lace accents on the shoulders.


The style was definitely cute, and definitely me!stitch-fix-november-2016-11

Pixley Abriella Waffle Knit Cardigan ($48) Ahhh heaven – now you know what I item decided had to be in my closet! I was delighted by everything about this cardi – purple, waffle, and…


The drape at the bottom forms the pockets! This cardigan was amazing!

I really loved this fix and was sure to give my stylist feedback on exactly why I liked it! I nearly always find at least one item that I can need to add to my wardrobe to expand my seasonal possibilities. This month the purple cardigan was an auto-buy, and I was close to just keeping the whole thing (the only reason I don’t is because there’s always another fix to love!). I especially liked how this month was really fall-oriented – Stitch Fix is getting good at matching clothes to weather demands of your area!
