Stitch Fix Review! The Pros, Cons, & Why I Love It!


Hey Friends!
Today, I’m doing a review of my most recent Stitch Fix box!

What is Stitch Fix?

Stitch Fix is a personal styling service that sends you 5 items based on your style profile that you fill out on their site! I love Stitch Fix because of how detailed you can be in your style profile- you can specify what not to send (shoes, jewelry, bags, etc.) or let them know what you really want (for this one, I requested a maxi dress!). You can also link up a Pinterest board so that they can see the types of clothes you love!

Once you fill out your style profile, you pay $20 for a styling fee and order your box! They’ll send you 5 items, you can try them on with clothes you already have, keep what you want, and then send back what you don’t (in a prepaid bag included in your box!). The great thing is, the styling fee goes towards any item you choose to keep. They also offer a pretty nice discount if you decide to keep all 5 items they send you! They include  a style card with ideas on how to style each item!

Is Stitch Fix a monthly subscription?!

No! Well, it can be! You can sign up to receive a fix automatically (monthly, quarterly) or you can just go to your account and order one when you’re wanting to treat your self! 😉

Here’s the 5 items I received, what I loved/didn’t about each item, and whether I kept the item or not!

Item #1 : Light Blue Sleeveless Top

Pros: This shirt is really comfortable! It has really cute, simple detailing that gives it a nice feminine touch, it’s a great versatile color, and it’s sleeveless (hello NC heat!)

Cons: Hand wash only (you can request that they not send you hand wash items, I just throw mine on a delicate cycle), wrinkles VERY easily

Status: Kept and LOVE

Item #2: Colorful Top

Pros: I love that this shirt is colorful! I requested some colorful tops in this fix because I tend to always buy black / white / tan colored tops and needed some pops of color! I love that this shirt buttons up, but the buttons are hidden by a strip of fabric.

Cons: The armholes on this shirt are a little bit big, so sometimes my  bra can be seen. This isn’t a huge deal, but definitely something I’m aware of while I’m wearing it.

Status: Kept and LIKE

Item #3: Ivory and Grey Striped Jacket

Pros: This jacket is really comfortable

Cons: I don’t like the metal detailing, the sleeves are a tiny bit long, and IMO it’s a weird fusion between trying to be nice but also casual.

Status: Kept to receive the discount (I knew I loved the other 4 items, and when I calculated the cost, it was cheaper for me to keep this jacket and get the 5 item discount, than to send it back)

Item #4 : White Halter Style Top

Pros: This shirt has beautiful detailing that make me feel very pretty and feminine, it’s very comfortable

Cons: This shirt is quite sheer! It has two layers of fabric, but it’s still pretty see through.

Status: Kept and LOVE

Item #5 : White and Pastel Halter Style Maxi Dress

Pros: This dress makes me feel so beautiful! I love the colors, I love that the sides are cut, so the skirt part doesn’t feel constraining

Cons: The lining only comes to my mid-thigh, and the fabric is pretty sheer, I don’t like the butterflies printed on it (although I love the colors)

Status: Kept and LOVE!
