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).
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.
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!
Every box includes a set of styling cards with suggestions on how to wear the particular item. The styling cards have changed 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, but not necessarily dressed up and dressed down.
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!
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 on your style profile. You will check out and get charged to your Stitch Fix account. Return the pieces you don’t want in the prepaid mailer (free shipping!).
Everything in my February 2018 fix.
MZ Wallace Medium Sutton Tote ($225) Made with quilted oxford nylon this tote bag is a scaled down version of the classic Sutton duffel. I received it in grey.
Since the color is neutral, it’s easy to pair with various outfits whether for work or just for casual days out.
As you open the bag, you will see that the interior is lined with the same material and comes with built-in pockets.
You have the option of using it as a shoulder bag or as a cross body bag with the long strap. Since I recently had a baby and was getting Stitch Fix maternity, they suggested I use it as a diaper bag.
The metal accents on the bag have a gold finish. Meanwhile, the shoulder strap is removable.
It comes with a pouch you can use with the bag to organize your stuff.
Beauport Parissa Reversible Knit Dress ($68) This knit dress in purple and blue can be worn in two different ways since it’s reversible.
The fabric is soft. It’s also long so you can wear it on its own.
There aren’t a lot of details, and it’s great because I like minimalist and versatile clothing. You can also vamp it up by adding a slim belt if you want to emphasize your curves. I was a little weirded out by the reversible dress aspect but it was cute!
Sweet Grey Keanon 3/4 Sleeve Crossover Knit Top ($54) This red overlap top has a 3/4 sleeve. I like the loose silhouette and the deep v-neck design.
The material used is ribbed and it is long at the back for more coverage. This is ideal to wear on those days when it’s not too cold to layer your outfit, but not too warm to wear a sleeveless or short-sleeved top.
The sleeves are fitted and the front is a little loose that achieves a draping effect. It gives the illusion of a layered outfit without the additional garments.
Sweet Grey Carlisle Mixed Material Top ($78) Comfy yet stylish, this top features a lace front with a nude inner material.
The back is plain and made with breathable material so your top doesn’t look too busy. Just the right amount of eye traffic!
The length of the top is ideal to pair with jeans for a casual yet well-put-together outfit.
Laila Jayde Aleese Raglan Open Drape Cardigan ($58) This mauve cardigan has a drape front that sets a more relaxed mood to any outfit.
The details on the shoulder adds a little structure to this piece. It is lightweight but functional. I ended up swapping this one for a smaller size.
If you’ve read my previous Stitch Fix reviews, I’m sure you know that I wasn’t too happy with their Maternity selections for me. This month, I’m back to my regular Stitch Fix and although I didn’t like everything they’ve included, I can say that the selections are way better. The mixed material top is my favorite, and I had to keep the cardigan too. The bag was also a nice inclusion! Hopefully, we’ll see more improvement in the next months because with 4 kids I so do not have any time for shopping!
