Unboxing My First Stitch Fix

Looking to update your wardrobe but don't have the time to shop? Let Stitch Fix do the work! A stylist will send you 5 pieces based on your likes and needs.

Spring is in the air, which is the excuse I’m using to update my wardrobe for the new season. After reading countless posts about Stitch Fix, I decided it was time to give this popular styling service a try.

How Stitch Fix Works

  1.  Fill out a style profile and share your likes and dislikes with your stylist. I recommend putting together a Pinterest board.
  2. Schedule your box. They can be sent to you automatically or you can schedule a box one at a time.
  3. Pay $20 when your box is styled.
  4. Get excited while you wait for your box.
  5. Open your box and try on everything your stylist sends you.
  6. Decide what to keep and what to send back. (You have 3 days to do this.)
  7. Share your thoughts at check out so your stylist has a better idea of what to send you next time.
  8. Send back any pieces you don’t want. (Shipping is free!)

Now, on to the good stuff. I made an unboxing video to show you what’s inside my first Stitch Fix!

The Subscription: Stitch Fix
The Cost: $20 a box styling fee (The fee is deducted from the items you purchase.)

Inside my Fix

Looking to update your wardrobe but don't have the time to shop? Let Stitch Fix do the work! A stylist will send you 5 pieces based on your likes and needs.

I was really happy that my stylist read my note and sent me a selection of tops. I prefer button downs, but her note explained why she sent each top, and the styling cards are helpful in deciding how to wear each piece.The packing slip is detailed, and I appreciated that it broke down the cost of each item and included the total cost as well as the Buy 5 Discount total.

One of the nice things about shopping through Stitch Fix is that the $20 styling fee goes towards your purchase, and if you decide to keep all 5 items, you get a 25% discount. The retail cost of this box is $296.00, but with the Styling Fee Credit and Buy 5 Discount, it would only have cost me $202.00.

Top #1 – BRIXON IVY Jarred Lace Detail Cap-Sleeve Blouse – $68

Loved the color of this top, and the lace detail is pretty. I’m not a fan of sleeveless tops, so I decided to send this one back. Verdict: Sent back. 

Papermoon Bastille Tulip Sleeve Blouse from Stitch Fix

Top #2 – Papermoon Bastille Tulip Sleeve Blouse – $44

Loved the color of this top, too, but the sleeves really made this one a winner for me. I like that this blouse looks great with jeans but can, also, be dressed up. I predict that this top will get a lot of wear. Verdict: Keeper.

Collective Blouse from Stitch fix

Top #3 – Collective Concepts Rilo Button-Up Blouse – $68

I really liked this top when I pulled it out of the box, but as you can see, the blouse is very sheer. Since I didn’t want to bother with wearing a cami under it, I decided to pass. The sleeves were, also, a little tight, but that might have been fixable had I re-rolled them. Verdict: Sent back.

Alice Blue top from Stitch Fix

Top #4 – Alice Blue Corren Pleated Front Blouse – $58

Loved the pleated front and heart print on this blouse. I debated about keeping this top, too, but decided that the fit wasn’t quite right for me. It was just slightly too tight at the bust/shoulder. Verdict: Sent back. 

Skies Are Blue top from Stitch Fix

Top #5 – Skies Are Blue Haldis Henley Blouse – $58

Another really cute top but the tiny buttons refused to stay buttoned, so this one was an easy pass. I loved the style and the color, but large buttonholes and tiny buttons spell disaster. Every time I moved the shirt came undone. No thank you. Verdict: Sent back. 

Thoughts

Overall, I’m really happy with the styles and colors my stylist sent me. Because I am petite, finding clothes that fit right can be a challenge, so it’s probably not surprising that the top I decided to keep was a petite size. Since I was only planning on keeping one blouse, the fit issues with the other tops didn’t bother me. I don’t need the temptation to buy the whole box!

I’m happy with my first Stitch Fix experience and plan on doing this again – maybe for my birthday, which is coming up soon. I wish I could afford to do this every month, but my wallet has other priorities right now, like voice lessons. As much as I wish there wasn’t a $20 styling fee, I felt like the service lived up to the price. My stylist did a great job of picking out styles I would want to wear, and I like that the fee is put towards your purchase. Also, I found the prices to be reasonable. As much as I like to buy things on sale, I didn’t think these prices were bad.

Would I recommend Stitch Fix? Yes! It’s a fun way to shop from home and avoid mall dressing rooms. Plus, it’s nice to have someone picking out clothes for you and offering styling suggestions. If you want to try Stitch Fix, I’d love it if you used my referral link! When you refer a friend, you receive a $25 credit, so it definitely pays to share the love.

  1. So fun! I’ve never heard of this before, but love all the tops you were sent–especially the blue and green tops which look stunning on you! I have a hard time finding blouses that are a bit longer, not sure why but seems like everything is tailored with a shorter hem lately? And these are uber flattering 🙂

  2. I love the lace detail on the blue shirt. And the tulip sleeve shirt is great, too. I think I would have kept both the tulip top and the lace top, even though I’m also trying not to buy as many sleeveless tops, lol. I’ve thought about using Stitch Fix in the past, but I generally don’t like most of the items in their selection. But you scored since your $20 fee will go toward your $44 top!

  3. Love that your mailman is in one of your photos! Lol! I think I would have kept the top you kept, too! I rarely keep more than one item, I just CAN’T afford it! I usually try to do Stitch Fix every other month.

  4. I am a fan of Stitch Fix and have had it for about a year now. I have one come once a month and some months are awesome and others are not as great but it is fun to see what they picked. I agree that pinning and feedback is key!

  5. Sounds like a good service. I often wish I could have someone choose clothes for me, because I feel like I have good taste but finding things that fit is usually a problem. I’m not sure I’d find enough I’d want to keep to make the $20 styling fee worth it though. It’s good it goes toward your order, if you buy something (like you did) but I have a difficult time finding things that fit right. haah

  6. i got that tulip blouse in my fix last month, but in black. i LOVE it in green. so much better because you can actually see the sleeves. so pretty!

  7. Really cool idea! My next thought, after that, is that someone should give this a spin in the vintage repro world and make it available to customers around the globe (though, I do realize that the shipping costs might quash that side of things).

    Great choice on the top that you kept. Such a pretty colour!

  8. As you know, I’ve tried it before and it is… alright as far as boxes like this go. I waver because there’s often something I want to keep in a box, and it is nice that they have things that you cannot get at a story. Plus, my mother has really great success with it and my sister has enjoyed getting it too, but maybe I’m just too particular?

    I liked all the tops on you, but the devil really is in the details and if something doesn’t fit right it is not worth keeping (as cute as the pleated shirt was on you!) I like the one you kept though

  9. How fun! I’ve seen a few mentions of Stitch Fix across other blogs, but I really appreciate your detailed review and showing all the contents and info sheets included in the box. The level of detail on the blue lace top is gorgeous. Bummer it was a cap sleeve style because I’m not a fan of those either. But it’s nice to see that they include really special statement pieces and not predictable basics. Thanks for sharing!

  10. I’ve heard so much about Stitch Fix and you got some pretty cute items! I’ve been wanting to try it until I saw a review where she was sent dirty clothes… eek. I just wish they’d make sure all their stuff is clean before sending them out.
