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!
Information card tells you that you can add “extras” to your next box of Stitch Fix.
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 April 2018 fix.
Octavia Araya Suede Satchel ($64) This pretty satchel is ideal for daily use. It is quite stylish too with its weaved pattern on the sides.
The back of the satchel comes with a small pocket with zipper. Perfect for those small items you just can’t do without.
Inside the bag is another zipped up pocket for the more intimate and personal stuff. You will find that the satchel is quite roomy so you can put everything you need for the day.
You can also convert this satchel into a sling bag with the strap included.
It’s great whether as a work bag or just as a casual bag.
41 Hawthorn Angelo Cargo Anorak Jacket ($108) This cargo jacket looks amazing with its pale pink color with large pockets up front.
It has strings at the bottom and you can zipper it up to keep your jacket from flapping around.
The hoodie can cover my head easily enough. Meanwhile, the button collar is ideal for protecting your face from biting wind.
It’s huge, but really cozy to wear. An awesome transitional piece from winter to spring. Or for 2018 from winter to summer!
Tolani Vinsen Silk Tunic Dress ($164) Tunic dresses never go out of style. The silk tunic in this month’s fix has a gorgeous pattern that makes me think it’d be perfect to wear on a vacation somewhere in a tropical island.
It’s flowy when worn. All that’s really missing is a beach hat and an oversized pair of sunnies!
Daniel Rainn Estefany Lace Detail Split Neck Blouse ($64) Casual and comfy, this blue split neck blouse can be paired with either jeans or leggings.
I like the crocheted detail on this top! The color is not something I’d usually pick but it looks really good.
Olive & J Karyn Criss-Cross Back Sweater ($58) There’s no such thing as too many sweaters. It’s a go-to piece of clothing for lazy days! This off-white marl knit sweater can be easily paired with jeans or leggings for a comfortable off-duty look.
The criss-cross back design makes it standout from the usual sweaters. It’s breathable and the material is really snuggly too!
I’m quite happy with my stylist’s choices for me this month. Just like last month, I appreciate that they sent me comfortable pieces of clothing ideal for my transitional wardrobe post-baby. I totally adore the hoodie jacket and the sweater, and the tunic dress is something I’m looking forward to wearing on a vacation. The bag was just okay, it could have been better if they sent another dress instead – I personally prefer more color in my bags. Overall, it’s still a good box and I just love the convenience that Stitch Fix allows when it comes to picking new clothes and staying fashionable yet comfy.
