June 2017 Stitch Fix Subscription Box Review

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

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!

Your return mailer is tucked right into the box. The styling fee for this subscription is $20, and shipping is free both ways. I put my return items out with the rest of my outgoing mail – couldn’t be easier.

Every box includes a set of styling cards with suggestions on how to wear the particular item. The styling cards have change a bit – before they showed a dressier and less dressy version, now they’re featuring multiple sets of accessories to pair with the garment, or 2 entirely different looks.

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 $154 – about $31 per item (after the styling fee I already paid for).

Everything in my June fix. This box gave me pause as soon as I opened it.

I looked again at the stylist note. It says right there “Everyone needs a cargo vest.”

Nope. Not me. Never.  I pretty much disliked this entire box, a real bummer. In case you do like some of the items – style is personal and so are body types. I don’t know why this stylist got it so wrong but I made my feelings known!

Tinsel Joen Cargo Vest ($74) This pink cargo vest has a covered placket and four gusseted pockets.

It has a cinch waist.

And a removable hood.

I like the pink color.

Kaileigh Felton Bell Sleeve Top ($38) This gauzey bell sleeve top is a light peach, see through, and a bit on the grandma side.

Renee C Norwood Split Back Top ($38) This t-shirt is inexplicably accented with see through gauze on the bottom.

Threads 4 Thought Hester Knit Dress ($44) I liked the fabric of this dress, but it wasn’t flattering, and I don’t care for the print.

The print was actually too ugly for me to keep it and use it as a nightgown, which I considered (I wanted to salvage my styling fee if possible!).

Papermoon Indira Woven Hem Knit Top ($38) I love the print and color on this shirt, but it shows my bra straps!

This fix was a pretty big dud for me. Truthfully I get really lazy and don’t update my pin board – but nothing on there (including the stylist note of no white, no see through, no grandma clothes, no color block, and no denim on top) should make them think that this was my style!  Last month Stitch Fix had some nice resources that I didn’t really look at (or post) and I’ll make sure to actually use them this month, and post for you! I need a lot of basics updated – like thin black cardigans and stretchy black skirts – that I wish Stitch Fix would send once in a while, or that you can opt in to!

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

    I just got my second fix and the cargo vest was in my box but I specifically asked for it after seeing this review. I asked for an olive colored one and got it and I love it. I’m so excited to wear it everywhere.

    Thank you for reviewing Stich Fix honestly. I just signed up for my first box, and was a bit nervous about doing so. I appreciate your honest feedback (and awesome pictures). I can’t wait for when mine comes in!
