I didn’t get too many subscription boxes today, but one I did get was my September 2014 Stitch Fix.

If you aren’t familiar, Stitch Fix is a personal styling service for women. You provide your style, size, and budget preferences, and they will send you a package of stylish goodies to try on at home. There is a $20 styling fee that is applied to your order should you decide to keep any / all of the pieces.  If you don’t keep anything, you don’t receive a refund of the fee. And if you keep all of the pieces, you get a 25% discount on everything!  Also, I should mention that you are only charged once you “check out” at Stitch Fix.  You have a few days to try everything on and the box comes with a bag and a prepaid return label so you can easily ship back the pieces you aren’t interested in.

The Box

Stitch Fix ships via FedEx and takes less than a week to arrive to me.

I didn’t even peek at my Stitch Fix this month so it was a surprise to open it up and see what they sent me.  If you are wondering how to see what you are getting, you can go into your account after it ships and click on the checkout link where it will show the items in the box.

The Information Card

Stitch Fix comes with an information card which includes a listing of everything in the box, prices, and then a total of how much everything would be if you kept everything in the box (it deducts your $20 styling fee and the 25% discount for keeping all of your items).  Just to give you an idea, my box had a merchandise total of $370 and had I kept everything, I would have had to pay $262.50 (plus my $20 styling fee).  In comparison, my August fix would have been $195 to keep everything.

Here are the pieces I received:

~Sanctuary Shelston Solid Trim Waffle Knit Sweater ($69): Meh.  I don’t love the colors on this and it’s just boxy on me.  Not a fan.  Verdict: Returned.

~Daniel Rainn Portreri Graphic Print Scoop Neck Blouse ($68): This is another miss for me.  I don’t hate the pattern, but this style doesn’t work on me.  The material isn’t forgiving and sleeveless stuff isn’t what I need going into winter. Oh and it had a little stain on it.  Verdict: Returned.

~Mavi Yasmin Skinny Jean ($98): These remind me of maternity jeans, but in the best way possible.  I have a very similar pair to these from Stitch Fix though so I don’t need a second.  Verdict: Returned (but I liked them a lot).

~RD Style Rhonda Knit Back Faux Leather Jacket ($78):  I am surprised that I am going to say this, but I like it.  It’s really not something I would have picked out / tried on myself, but I think it’s a keeper.  Verdict: Kept

~Vanessa Mooney Syklar Cylinder Bead & Nugget Layering Necklace ($58):  This necklace is totally me and I love it.  More often than not I love the jewelry that Stitch Fix sends me.  Verdict: Kept.

Well I said it last month, but I really mean it this month, I am going to revamp my profile, do some pinning and see if I can’t get myself a Stitch Fix where I want to keep everything!

    I enjoy seeing what people receive, but I don’t think I will ever subscribe. It is too much work for me. Still I enjoy looking at the clothes.

    That first sweater looks a lot better in their picture than it seems to in real life. I wonder how much Photoshopping they did?

    Glad to see another review of Stitch Fix. I don’t really have the budget for it right now, but I like seeing the range of options on different blogs, because people can have totally different taste.

      The colors are probably a bit off in my picture, but it’s really just big. LOL.

    They sent you something with a stain on it?! Wow! I don’t know if I’ll ever subscribe to stitchfix either… I don’t think I’ve ever seen something that I really loved in anyone else’s box! Plus I’ve heard stories about them marking up the pricing on items, which isn’t a huge deal considering them convenience of not having to go to the store, but it doesn’t seem like a fair deal to their customers.

    1. Jennifer

      It was hard to see, but it was at the top of the shirt.

    I’ve been using stitch fix for 5-6 months now. At first I was getting some great stuff. Lately, everything has been “meh.” My stylist keeps sending me very loose fitting tops when I specifically ask for fitted. Maybe that is just the current style??
    I agree with the other posters on the price. I had a top in my most recent fix for $78! That seems extreme.. I can understand a dress at that price….similar to macys.
    I’m going to give it one more month, but I may discontinue my subscription.

    I love seeing what people get, but wish you would post pics of you actually wearing the clothes!

    1. Jennifer

      Ugh. I know. It’s so far outside my comfort zone though. Maybe one day!

  6. Amanda

    Thinking of trying this but their prices are insane!!

    Ps any codes for discounts ever out there??

    1. Jennifer

      PopSugar once had a code for the styling fee, but I have never seen a code for the actual clothing.
