Stitch Fix Clothing Subscription Box Review- October 2017

Being a mom of four children, three with autism, I do not even pretend that I have a chance to go shopping for myself.  Even if I ever were to get out without any kids (hahahaha!), I lack any form of style!  So when I first found out about the Stitch Fix Subscription box service, I was instantly sold on the idea!

Stitch Fix is a monthly clothing and styling subscription service. When you sign up you take a pretty in-depth survey about your sizes, your style, and pricing preferences. After you choose how often you want your subscription to come, your stylist will handpick 5 items based on your preferences.

The fee for this service is $20, and that includes free shipping and free returns. And if you keep any of the items they send you, you get to deduct the $20 fee from the total. If you keep all five items, you also get a 25% discount! 

(Note: The items I receive are reflective of my style profile as well as price preferences.  Your Stitch Fix may be completely different based off yours.)

This is my invoice sheet. It lists the prices per item and the discount I’d receive by keeping all 5 items. With the 25% discount and my $20 styling fee factored in, this box would cost me a total of $167.50 to keep everything – an average of $41.87 per item and a total discount of $82.50

Your Stitch Fix  comes with instructions on how to complete your check out online.   In that process, you leave your feedback on the items you received.  This helps your stylist learn more of what you like and dislike.

Then you just pack up the items you don’t want and send them back.  Since it is a priority mailer, you can just schedule online through usps.com for free carrier pick up! This is perfect for us!

Each box comes with cards with styling suggestions for every piece, plus a little note from your stylist.  My stylist Tiffany is doing great so far!  I love that they give you a personal message to help build that relationship!  I love the extra tips so that I can incorporate items already in my closet.

Stitch Fix Clothing Subscription box Review October 2017

I love fall, so I had a feeling I was going to fall in love with the items sent this month!  So with Stitch Fix Clothing Subscription Box #4!

Jolie Fia Cold Shoulder Knit Dress, Size XS $38 (black)

One thing I have fallen in love with Stitch Fix over is the textures of the clothing so far.  This knit dress is silky soft and so comfy!  I love that is a perfect fall piece!  You can wear it as it, or style it up with a cardigan or leggings.  I am sure this will be paired up with a denim jacket quiet often!  That reminds me, I need to let my stylist know I need a new denim jacket!  This one is a definite keeper!

 

Nine Britton Rhea Knit Top, Size XS – $42.00 (Burgundy)

This was one of those that I had to try on (then see a photo of) to truly fall in love with.  I instantly loved the color and the amazingly soft texture.  The fringe like pattern was a little different for me.  I do like that my stylist has been pushing me a little out of my comfort zone each time though.  This is a shirt I would never had tried in store, but I absolutely love it.  I cannot wait to layer it up with scarves and cardigans!

Liverpool Elizabeth Super Skinny Jean, Size 0P – $78 (Blue)


I often see the Liverpool brand in Stitch Fix  reviews.  After receiving a pair this month, I totally get why!  They are so comfortable and fit perfect!  On my last fix, I explained that I have yet to find a pair of jeans that fits that isn’t marked “petite” or “short.”  On our box #3,  Tiffany completely delivered a perfect pair of jeans.  With there being another pair of perfect fitting jeans in this box, I am beyond thrilled! I absolutely love them (and so does the hubby!). Here is a link directly to the Liverpool Elizabeth Super Skinny Jeans!

Collective Concepts Roma Wrap Blouse, Size XSP – $58

This was the complete push out of my comfort zone!   You can totally tell in my unboxing video that I was a little thrown off by it.  That, and a complete doofus and nor able to put it on in a timely fashion, lol!  Even once I had it on, I wasn’t sold.  When it came time to take pictures, my husband instantly told me he loved it.  This also caught me off guard.  After he took the photos though, I completely fell in love too.

The material is silky and I love the shade of blue.  This is a perfect shirt for nicer occasions, or every day events.  It all depends on whether you dress it up or down.  Pieces like these are ideal for every women’s wardrobe!

 

Octavia Ester Plaid Infinity Scarf – $34.00 (Burgundy)

This is a such a cute scarf.  I do love scarves, but this one instantly screamed my daughters name.  Though the boxes are for me only, this is going to be that one exception to the rule.  Our oldest will be 15 this winter and this scarf perfectly makes up her school colors.  With her being a cheer leader and pretty much only wearing school colors ever, this will be a perfect birthday present for her.

Unboxing Stitch Fix Clothing Subscription box Review October 2017

You can tell by the pictures that everything came out great, but that isn’t always how it feels when you open a box.  This is why it is so important to try on each piece. I love the idea of having your picture taken by a friend or family member so you can see it from how everyone else sees it!  To show you the difference, this is our unboxing video.

What do you think?

Stitch Fix box was a complete win. I am ecstatic with each piece and will be keeping each one!  I love that Tiffany is learning my style so well.  At the end of the day, the $20 monthly styling fee (which also includes free shipping and returns) is a low-risk way of shopping for clothes in the comfort of your home.  If you use any link in this post, you will automatically get your $20 styling fee waived so you can try Stitch Fix risk free!

I love my Stitch Fix box this month!  What did you get in yours?
