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!
You will also receive a return envelope in the box where you can put the clothes that you don’t want to keep. As long as you are in the United States, you don’t have to put a stamp on it.
Stitch Fix has also included an envelope containing suggestions from a stylist.
Inside the envelope are a mini mag and another information card.
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 set of styling cards has suggestions on how to wear a 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!
Items are always well-packaged!
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 January 2019 fix.
Market & Spruce Walley Faux Suede Drape Jacket ($88) I am quite pleased to find a faux suede jacket in this month’s box. The drape design on the front makes it stylish and captivating.
I like the way the jacket falls nicely around my body, as well as its dark violet color (my fave!!).
Fortunately, they added zippered pockets on the jacket so I can slip some personal stuff inside. I can’t wait to try this one out!
41 Hawthorn Amanda Button Down Blouse ($64) Talk about elegance in a blouse! This top is ultra-feminine with its pink floral design that stands out from the black background. This is perfect for the office or even a date night.
The sleeves are long and the cuffs are a bit tight but still comfortable.
The back portion of the blouse is a bit longer than the front which looks quite charming. You can pair this with black pants or slacks and strappy heels or boots.
Kut From The Kluth Benter Mixed Material Top ($58) It’s another long-sleeved top featuring floral prints, but this time, it’s more like a pullover. The floral graphics printed on the front are really pretty.
I love the vibrant color of the floral prints here where you’ll find white, yellow, orange, and red.
The back remains black. The gray sleeves complement the look. I thought this was a GREAT way to add some color to my “mostly comfortable wearing black” wardrobe.
Harper Lane Cervetti Neckline Detail Pullover ($64) What sets this apart from other tops is the detail on the neckline. The fabric is quite soft and cozy to wear which is perfect for the cold weather that we currently have.
Check out the design on the neckline! It certainly adds the right charm to this pullover, don’t you think?
Market & Spruce Antonie Cotton Blend J-Pocket Cardigan ($68) I also got a J-pocket cardigan from Market & Spruce which works nicely with different colored tops. I like how this cardigan flows around my body and it’s long too!
I love the details on this cardigan as they add texture and character to it.
Check out the pockets on this cardigan! They come wide and deep to easily slip my hands into for that casual feel.
My Stitch Fix for this month is packed with interesting choices and more floral pieces too. The faux suede drape jacket is a favorite of mine because it’s not your usual design and color. Of course, I am going to keep it along with the J-pocket cardigan because they come in handy all throughout the year. They did a good job in finding pieces suitable with my style, so I’m really pleased! ‘Til the next fix!
