February 2017 Stitch Fix Subscription Box Review

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!

OMG It’s Kate! I really liked this fix and it’s because it’s my favorite stylist. [Don’t leave me again!]

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!

Stitch Fix is partnering with Give Back Box to provide a free-shipping donation solution!

Get a prepaid label from GiveBackBox.com, print it out, reuse your box, and send in clothing or household items you don’t want. This is great, especially as you return the Fix items you don’t want in a prepaid mailer instead of a box.

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 $334 – about $66.80 per item (after the styling fee I already paid for). This was a pricey box!

Everything in my February fix. It’s so fluffy I’m going to die! I begged for fluffy, cozy items and I got them!

RD Style Bliss Cowl Neck Sweater ($78) Excuse me, I’m having a fluffy moment here! This sweater is perfect for my wardrobe, both for mixing & matching purposes, and for it’s fluffy and cute cozy style! I found that I could style the cowl in a few ways and most importantly, it kept me nice and warm while looking polished, yet relaxed.

Leo & Nicole Violette Floral Mixed Material Pullover ($64) I like the bold vibrant cobalt with just a little bit of floral in this top!

It’s warm, but not overly so, and a great into-spring item!

Daniel Rainn Dona Ruched Front Knit Top ($58) This top was full of detail!  This has a smocked bodice with some interesting cutouts. I liked the shaping, which is perfect for my body type, and the not too busy floral pattern.

The back has a deep V with a strap across.

Market & Spruce Fred Textured Sleeve Cardigan ($74) Oh this is totally me. It really goes to show you how far a good stylist that understands your preferences goes. I haven’t asked Stitch Fix to keep me with Kate, but I certainly wouldn’t mind if she popped up more frequently, she’s super amazing, and seems to understand intuitively that of course I would wear this delightful plum cardi at least 3x per week.

What great detail, from the basketweave on the shoulders to the side pockets!

And the fun ribbing in the back!

Did I mention the side pockets? This one’s a keeper.

Splendid Flowa Faux Shearling Jacket ($198) OMG I love this jacket so much, but $198 is a lot of dough.  It has a great space dye knit on the outside, knit fabric sleeves, and faux shearling lining the rest.

It’s absolutely fantastic.

I really went back and forth on this piece. I love it, but the price was really a lot, especially as I don’t like to wear the same outerwear every day. I had this box for a little while and one day I was running out the door and trying to decide whether to keep the jacket and popped on my phone and found this jacket at $99 (oooh loving this one they suggested too!). I requested a price match and was denied because I had the box too long.

Sorry to break it to you Stitch Fix, but I would have kept both cardigans with the price match, now my entire box is going back. I’m miffed! I loved Kate’s selections for me, I think she did a great job and was responsive to my requests, but I don’t know anyone who would willingly fork over an extra $100 because they had the box sitting around on their floor a few extra days.  So this is your FYI on their price matching policy!

If you get this jacket in your fix be sure to request a price match! This box was a thumbs up on style, thumbs down for customer experience. My fault for sure, but I can still be cranky about it.

What did you get in your Stitch Fix this past month??

    Hello I seen your add on TV and was wondering if you carry plus/tall women sizes ?

    • Tom

      Hi Jody – Stitch Fix carries plus sizes now!

  • Jenny

    Oh no 🙁 That sucks because I know you were looking for a jacket like that. Did you look at Gap? I just got basically the same jacket there on clearance.

  • Virginia

    I liked the purple sweater (just my style) and the faux shearling coat. I’m sorry they wouldn’t honor the price match. I’m with you the prices were a little high.
