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 March 2018 fix. Yes, it’s a little late!
Gaiam Callaway Shearling Lined Knit Jacket ($88) This grey open wrap knit jacket with a white inner shearling lining on the inside is extraordinarily similar to one I received about a year ago. The inner lining actually extends and can be folded on the outside that works as a nice accent to the overall look. It works well with fitted clothes because it drapes over the body.
A new low in price gouging! I tore Stitch Fix a new hole over this – the actual price on this jacket was $68 – $20 less than what Stitch Fix tried to sell it to me for. The absolute CRAZY thing is that this happened on that nearly identical cardigan! Because I’m always late for everything I didn’t qualify for Stitch Fix’s price matching policy (which is within 7 days). It’s a dumb policy and incentivizes returns over selling the item.
Evolution By Cyrus Reena Hooded Pullover ($68) This all black hooded pullover is really comfy and totally my style. The fabric is soft and it’s long so it can be worn with a pair of leggings and boots.
It has a hoodie plus a kangaroo pocket, so this pebble knit pullover is all about cozy snuggly warmth!
Lemon Tart Hermanie Velvet Tie Back Pullover ($68) I like this knitted pullover because it has a toned down shade of pink.
It has a cute ribbon bow at the back which makes it very cute and stylish.
The ribbon at the back can actually be adjusted depending on how tight or how loose you want the neck line to be. I have actually seen some ladies wear this with the ribbon in the front, and that’s cool girl, rock your look, but I’m just going to point out the actual name of the item indicates that it’s worn in the back. Hmmkay.
Cotton Emporium Arin Cardigan ($48) It’s a navy blue fur cardigan that can be worn with plain fitted clothes as a bold accent.
This cardigan may be a little too much for my liking (hello Cookie Monster?!), although this one has great coverage and is really cozy.
Heartloom Langlee Plaid Poncho ($64) This black and white plaid poncho can be worn with a plain white t-shirt, jeans, and boots for a chic look!
It has a pretty simple but classy design.
It’s an open wrap poncho that can be easily draped over.
I’m glad that I’m back to my regular Stitch Fix and I loved that my stylist was thoughtful enough to curate a box of ponchos and cardis. I absolutely beg for them in my notes and I never quite get enough, until mid-February. I’m hoping this year I can get Stitch Fix to send them to me in the fall so I can max out their use. However, I think these are a great style choice for *me* especially considering I’m dealing with a transitional wardrobe post-baby.
