April 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!

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 $266 – about $54 per item (after the styling fee I already paid for).

Everything in my April fix.

Urban Expressions Torrey Zip Detail Satchel ($68) Yay, it’s a tote! Stitch Fix always sends the CUTEST in-season bags!

This one is nice and roomy with loads of pockets!

I love that it has handles, and a removable strap, so I can choose to carry it any way I want.

The great indigo tones are always in for spring!

I get… a little obsessed with the Stitch Fix purses, sorry for all the pics!

Collective Concepts Tevita Crochet Detail Top ($64) This flowy top is great for transitional weather, with long sleeves, but it’s lightweight.

The lace detail is fun!

Pixley Martina Slub Knit Open Cardigan ($38) So in love with this SOFT lightweight cardigan and those built in pockets.

This is totally the perfect coverup for a chilly office.

Abby & Gail Harria Side Lace Up Knit Top ($38) Never judge a book by its cover!

In this case, when I took this shirt out I was a little agog at this lacing detail and didn’t like it at all.

When I tried it on though it was super cute, and I thought it was perfectly matched with my style – always try on every item in your fix!

Nine Britton Elizzah Dress ($58) Also a GREAT style for me! Full of detail but easy to wear!

This dress features a tie bodice as well as a snap to keep things closed up.

I love the floral detailing!

This was a great month for Stitch Fix! I took a month off because of travel and I’m even more excited to have my Stitch Fix – because who has time for a spring wardrobe update when they’re busy catching up? I thought the styles were really well matched to my weather, too – warmish one day, snow the next – but good all season long. I felt that my stylist really took my style preferences into consideration (which include not having to wear a second layer under my clothes, white clothes, etc.). I love easy to wear fun styles and this month was excellent!

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

    I especially love the gray top with side stitching. An added touch that will surprise people when you lift/move your arms.
