Stitch Fix (Fix#5) Review
Here’s my review of my 5th fix from Stitch Fix! Here’s what I liked or didn’t like, and what I will be keeping or returning!
For those of you who haven’t heard of Stitch Fix, it’s a personalized clothing subscription service. There is a $20 styling fee for each fix that is applied to any of the items you keep. You are sent 5 items, which vary each fix – they send blouses/shirts, shorts/pants/skirts, jackets, dresses, purses, shoes, etc. Generally, the pricing is pretty good – while I’ve had a few items that were a little pricey, most are about the same as getting that item in a store or boutique.
You can schedule a fix as often as you like, and before your first fix you are asked to complete a style questionnaire to help your stylist find pieces perfect for you and in your appropriate size. They also ask for a link to a social media account (typically people choose Pinterest) that they can look at to see what kinds of items and styles you prefer.
Also included with each fix is a style guide, which gives you ideas on how to style each piece. After you receive your fix, you have 3 business days to try everything on, decide what you like/what you don’t, complete their checkout process (which is super easy), provide feedback for the items, and send any items back. They include a return shipping label and bag to return your things in, which can be dropped of at any USPS location. If you decide to keep all 5 items, you get a 25% discount! How awesome is that?

And Stitch Fix isn’t just for women either! They recently started offering a men’s subscription, which would make an awesome gift for the man in your life, or just give them a little more variety in their side of the closet! They also have a plus-sized and maternity subscription too! How awesome is that?
This is Fix #5 for me! I started using Stitch Fix about a year ago after I returned from grad school abroad. I honestly hate shopping, and loved the idea of other people shopping for me essentially. Plus the pieces I’ve seen on Pinterest from Stitch Fix are pretty unique, and I wanted more of those pieces in my closet! A few of the fixes I’ve received, I’ve kept every item, and others I’ve only kept one or two. I usually always keep at least something, so that I don’t waste my styling fee!
For this particular fix, I was actually emailed by Stitch Fix offering to waive their styling fee! It’s been a while since my last fix, and they wanted to see if I would want another one. They also asked if I had any things in particular that I would want to see in a new fix. Talk about personal service!
Here’s what I got in Fix #5!
Daniel Rainn – Celia Split Neck Blouse – Return
When I first opened up my box, I actually laughed a little bit. I received a VERY similar top in one of my other fixes (see picture below), and while I liked this one a bit more, I didn’t want to have 2 of the same tops in my closet. It was really cute though!
(New blouse from this fix on the right, old one on the left.)
Le Lis – Alanna Tie Sleeve Blouse – Keep
This blouse was really cute! I loved the bow detail on the sleeves!
Nine Britton – Carlie Knit Maxi Dress – Return
This dress fit really weird, but at least the length was good. Being so tall, I have a hard time finding maxi dresses long enough! I wanted to love it, but it just wasn’t for me.
Skies Are Blue – Mayven V-Neck Blouse – Keep
I loved this blouse! It’s perfect for spring and very flow-y, though time will tell how it holds up!
Dear John – Finnegan Printed Cuffed Short – Return
These shorts were cute, but the were a little loose. They were also a little pricey for shorts ($58!), and I knew I could find similar ones much cheaper *cough old navy cough*!
Overall, I was underwhelmed with this fix. I always get so excited to get my fix in, but am always a bit disappointed with a few pieces. I definitely need to work on my Pinterest board and feedback so I make sure I get better pieces next time! Interested in trying Stitch Fix for yourself? Click here to schedule your fix!
