Stitch Fix Review: September 2017

After my last box was a fail, I wasn't super eager to try another Stitch Fix. However, I ended up with a $25 credit (thank-you, person who knows who you are!) and I received an offer to waive my styling fee. So this box was risk-free. Sorry, but I didn't have time to take modeled shots this time.

Quick rundown if you aren't familiar: Stitch Fix is a clothing subscription box. You fill out a style profile, pay $20, and are sent 5 items picked for you by a computer algorithm and finalized by a human stylist. You have 3 days to try on the clothes and decide what to keep. Your $20 styling fee gets applied to any items you buy and if you keep all 5 items you get a 25% discount.

In my notes I had asked for a casual weekend fix. I have quite a few work clothes, and I was hoping for some cold-weather items that I could cozy up in on the weekends. I was thinking joggers, cute sweatshirts or hoodies, and comfy cardigans.


Laju Kinchi Pocket Duster Cardigan, SIZE XS: $88

I had asked for a long open cardigan with pockets in a neutral like camel or olive, so they did listen to my request. But this particular cardigan was super heavy and felt like plastic-y acrylic. It was also huge and the sleeves were way too long. I felt like I'd been swallowed by a 1970s afghan. Not a fan.

Verdict: Kept for the discount, sold to a buyer on Facebook


Current/Elliott Stach V-neck Tee, SIZE XS: $78

First, let me acknowledge that a $78 t-shirt is inherently ridiculous. But honestly I kind of fell in love with it. The color is the perfect marled grey, it fits perfectly--loose and comfy but the vee isn't too low, and it's so soft in that already worn-in perfectly sort of way. I would not have paid full-price for it. but with the credit and the discount I felt it was worth it. I actually did a last-minute switch with another grey tee and included it in my fall capsule so you will be seeing more of it this month.

Verdict: Kept (but feel slightly embarrassed about it)


Look by M Alpine Plaid Wrap Scarf, One Size: $38

I was hoping for a square blanket scarf but this one was a wide but not that long rectangle. I actually have a scarf very similar to this that I was hoping to replace (b/c it's too wide and not long enough) so this one didn't work out.

Verdict: Kept for the discount, sold to a buyer on Facebook


MPG Sport Malibu Laser Cut Detail Legging, SIZE XS: $54

I will hand it to Stitch Fix that they found a pair of leggings short enough for me. These hit me right at the ankle. Unfortunately, I already have several pairs of black leggings, including a pair very similar to this. It's really hard to see the cutouts as they are very subtle, but they were on the ankles (shown) and on the waistband.

Verdict: Kept for the discount, sold to a buyer on Facebook


Gorjana Leucadia Beaded Fan Necklace, One Size: $90

And lastly, my favorite item from this box. when I saw the preview, I didn't think i'd like this at all. But in person it grew on me because it's like a statement necklace but a bit more subtle. Again, I probably wouldn't have wanted to pay full price, but with the discount I thought it was reasonable.

Verdict: Happily Kept

I did not receive any long sleeve sweatshirts or thicker pants but for the most part they listened to my requests. I ended up with 2 new things that I'm happy with. After selling the other items plus applying the discount + credit, I think I ended up paying roughly $55 each. I'm not terribly unhappy with Stitch Fix, but I think after my buying moratorium ends I might try Trunk Club again.
