I tried Stitch Fix for the first time last fall and have been getting monthly deliveries ever since. I received my October 2014 Stitch Fix, which actually happens to be my 13th Stitch Fix box! As long as I like / keep at least one piece from each Fix I am happy. I just don’t ever want to lose my styling fee.
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 USPS return label so you can easily ship back the pieces you aren’t interested in.
Stitch Fix ships via FedEx from California. You can schedule your fixes to arrive automatically on a monthly basis or on a date of your choice.
I didn’t even get a chance to sneak a peek at the items in my account before the box arrived. Once you get your shipping notice you can go into your account and click the “Checkout” link and it will show you a listing of the items received. It won’t show you pictures of the actual items, but you can at least get an idea.
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 it all (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 $376 and had I kept everything, I would have had to pay $267 (plus my $20 styling fee). In comparison, my September Fix would have been $262.50 to keep everything.
Here are the pieces I received:
~Look by M Wallace Zig Zag Border Infinity Scarf ($38): I absolutely love this scarf. The scallop detail is great, I love the color and it’s very soft. And perfect for the upcoming Michigan winter. Oh and the price is right! Verdict: Kept.
~Olive & Oak Alvin Striped Long Sleeve Sweater ($68): This sweater is fairly lightweight, but you could throw a long sleeved shirt under it for winter or just wear it alone in the spring. I like the colors and the stripes and really like that this one is a longer sweater. I look so boxy when shirts are too short. Verdict: Kept
~Kensie Jeans Kaleigh Ankle Biter Skinny Jean ($88): On one hand I really like these jeans. On the other hand I don’t know how often I will wear bright red jeans. Although, I do think with the holidays coming up I might get more chances to wear them than I think. Verdict: Undecided, but leaning towards keep.
~Skies are Blue Esmeralda Embroidered Knit Top ($54): This top is just not me. The embroidered area on the top is sheer and there is a also a sheer area in the same area on the back of the shirt. I don’t even know quite what you would wear under it, but I’m pretty sure you’d need something. Verdict: Returned.
~Tart Jessamy Twin Strip Cardigan ($128): I really like this cardigan, but I don’t like the price. It’s a longer cardigan with a slim fit which is great, and I like the color and the pattern on it. But I don’t know if I can get over spending $128 for a cardigan made out of a sweatshirt type material. Verdict: Undecided but learning towards return.
My Stitch Fix boxes are getting better and better (they were a little off for a while but I think we are back on track) and I think this was one of my favorites ever. Had I liked that blue shirt a lot (or had it been replaced with a piece I did like) I would have been tempted to keep the entire thing!
