A Stitch Fix Review: The Wins & The Fails

I’ve gotten four fixes from Stitch Fix so far (see what I loved about my first one here), and I’m still really enjoying this service. I love that I can keep what I want and send back the rest, and I’ve had a chance to try clothes I never would have picked up on my own. I love the styling ideas that come with each piece, and I’ve gotten more comfortable with the prices—ahem, except ridiculously expensive tank tops—because I really can feel the difference in quality.

Because of their great referral program, I’ve also gotten a few pieces free, although I paid for my latest fix out of pocket because I loved the pieces so much!

StitchFix #2

Although they announced their maternity line in March (shortly after I found out I was pregnant!), I decided to stick with regular clothes for a couple of months. In March’s fix, I got the most gorgeous maxi skirt. I love this skirt so much and wear it almost every week. It’s soft and silky, never wrinkles and has a nice stretchy waist that’s been perfect as my belly grows. I also kept the button-up roll-tab top, although I’m regretting that decision a little bit now because I’m not sure I’ll be able to wear it while nursing, which means I’m looking at a year or two before I can wear it again!

When I got this box, I felt like including an accessory (a necklace in this case) took away my chance to get something I might have really loved, and I almost went in and removed that option from my profile because I wasn’t sure I’d ever keep a $30 accessory.

Wins:

  • Market & Sprice Char Ikat Print Maxi Skirt, $58
  • Skies are Blue Hilden Roll-Tab Top, $54

Fails:

  • Zad Meagan Cut Out Spade Layering Necklace, $32
  • Olive & Oak Juliette Sheer Panel Blouse, $54
  • Skies are Blue Uruguay Pintuck Detail Top, $48

StitchFix #3

After my first two fixes, which I really enjoyed, I was really disappointed by April’s box. The clothes weren’t my style, and my stylist included skinny jeans despite my note about my pregnancy and needing clothes that would adjust as I grew. Thankfully, there was a cute pair of earrings included. At this point, I was glad that I’d left accessories on my style preferences since I kept the earrings to avoid forfeiting my $20 styling fee!

Wins:

  • Zad Leanne Infinity Drop Earrings, $28

Fails:

  • Liverpool Nik Skinny Jean, $78
  • Splendid Ruben Tab-Sleeve Open Cardigan, $78
  • Pixley Edmond Chevron Print Henley Shirt, $54
  • Pixley Polly Dotted Chevron Tie Waist Tunic, $54

StitchFix #4

This month, I got my first maternity fix, and I was really excited to open it up. I fell in love with the striped knit shirt (which has lace sleeves and a pretty lace panel down the back) and the coral cardigan. My sister got the same cardigan in black, and we both love them because they’re really soft, comfy and lightweight, perfect for summer. I’m also excited to have a colorful cardigan to add to my collection.

This fix included yet another high collar sleeveless shirt, even though I keep leaving feedback saying that I absolutely do not like that style shirt, so that was a little bit disappointing. It also included a ribbed tank top…for $38. Now, I’ve definitely realized the benefits of paying more for clothes since beginning this journey, but you will never convince me that that tank top is worth four times as much as the ones I get at Target or Old Navy. Needless to say, both of those went back.

Finally, I debated for a long time about a dress that was included in this month’s fix. In the end, because it was black, I just wasn’t sure I would actually wear it all that often, which felt like a waste when I’ll only be pregnant for another 5 months. If it had been a lighter color, I probably would have kept it because it looked and felt great!

Wins:

  • Pixley Martina Slub Knit Open Cardigan, $48
  • Loveappella Maternity Knit Top, $54

Fails:

  • LA Made Maternity Lua Maternity Tank, $38 (what?!)
  • Loveappella Maternity Augusta Maternity Dress, $68
  • Market & Spruce Colibri Floral Print Sleeveless Top, $44
