Stitch Fix Review




I shared on Friday about getting my first Stitch Fix! I've been toying with the idea of getting a Stitch Fix box, but I knew the pieces were a little more expensive than I usually spend. When I was a stay at home mom, I was worried about falling in love with something that was just out of my price range. But can I just tell you that I wish I had done this sooner!

If you haven't heard of Stitch Fix before, let me fill you in on this wonderful subscription box. For $20, a stylist will send you 5 pieces of clothing based on your style profile that you fill out on stitch fix.com. This profile includes the basics like sizing, the fit you prefer to wear your clothes, and then you rate what styles you like best. You can even let them know if there's certain styles or pieces that you are hoping to incorporate more into your wardrobe. You can also let them know if there's certain things you don't want, colors, accessories, or certain pieces.

If you don't like something that your stylist sends you, you simply leave feedback on the piece and send it back in the prepaid mailer that is included in your box. Then, based on what you would like to keep, you check out on the website. The $20 that you pay for the box goes towards any purchases that you make.

You can even let them know whether you need an outfit for a date night or special occasion, and they will deliver. The great thing about Stitch Fix is that you  can schedule your fix and much or as little as you would like!

I let my stylist know that I was hoping for more clothes that were casual chic or boho in my wardrobe. I also let them know that I am a mom to a toddler and only work part time so pieces that are versatile and comfortable were high priority for me.

Here's what I got:

Just Black High Rise Distressed Straight Leg Jean $88

These jeans fit me so well! I was really surprised because I really figured if anyone else bought pants for me there was no way they could pick out something that actually fits, and fits well. The price is out of my usual price range on jeans, mostly because I'm cheap. I'm on the fence merely because the price, but I do like the fit!
(Side note: photographing yourself really makes me realize that I need to get back into shape again)

LoveAppella Long Sleeve Lace Keyhole Back Knit Top  $58.00

This is my absolute favorite piece! It's so comfortable but way nicer than just wearing a t-shirt, especially on my days off. This one is for sure a keeper. My hubby loves it too, which is definitely another reason to keep.


MTLA Georgia Shawl Collar Cardigan  $78

This was my second favorite piece from the fix. Again, it's definitely more than what I would usually pay for a sweater. But, it's super comfy and a lot higher quality than a lot of the stuff that I normally buy. Honestly, it's between the jeans and this sweater to keep! (Hopefully I will keep myself reined in and not keep all three :)

Octavia Tina Checkered Infinity Scarf  $34

I loved this scarf, so soft and perfect for the ice cold Ohio winters. But, since I loved the other pieces so much, this one will be sent back for the sake of my bank account. Sad to part with it!


Papermoon Woven Back Knit Top  $58

This was the only piece that I really wasn't over the moon about in my fix. I love the idea of it, and I really like the high/low aspect of the top, but I think the flowers are just a little overwhelming and I don't really like the length of where the front of the shirt hits me. It has grown on me, but for $58, if I don't love it then I don't want to spend the money.
So, all together, I was super happy and excited about my first Stitch Fix! It will definitely be something that I will do again.

  1. You got some GREAT things for the first box! I'm all about a good pair of jeans, so that would be a keep for me. And that black shirt is so cute! I love things that have a little extra detail.

    1. I was pleasantly surprised with everything and how well everything fit! I did end up keeping the jeans, mostly because I really need another pair and I've got so many sweaters (as much as I basically live in them in the winter!) It was a bit more than I usually pay but worth it because I like them so much.

  2. You definitely got some cute stuff! I'm where you were—I've heard a lot about it and have always been curious. But, the prices seem a little out of my comfort zone. Maybe I'll just give one a try. Thanks for sharing!

    1. I like that it isn't an annual subscription so you can do it whenever you want or if you need specific things. I think it's definitely a fun try at least once :)

  3. You look adorable in everything! Even though you don't feel comfortable in the floral top, it does look good! But if you don't like it, you won't reach for it, and not worth the money. Love your review!

    1. I really did love the style of that shirt! Honestly, if I didn't like everything else I probably would've bought it. It was so hard to choose.

  4. I like the cardigan. Looks warm. Could use that right about now. All the outfits look nice on you.

    1. I did too, so much. I ended up going with the jeans just because I really did need a new pair of jeans. And thank you I appreciate that :)
