Stitch Fix Summer Box Review for 2018

Stitch Fix Summer Review 

Ever since January, when I tried out my first Stitch Fix box, I have been having fun trying out a new box about every month. So far, I have kept at least 1 item from each box and I am ordering a box mainly to try to update my outdated wardrobe with some new, fresh pieces that are curated by a professional stylist. I am loving the Stitch Fix boxes so much that I asked for a Stitch Fix gift card for my birthday in May, so I was excited to get a box this summer so I could use my gift card if I found any pieces that I like.

What is Stitch Fix?

I’m sure many of you have heard of Stitch Fix, but if it’s something that’s new to you, basically it’s a service where you will have 5 curated items chosen by a personal stylist based on your likes & dislikes sent to you by mail, directly to your home. These items can be clothes, shoes & jewelry for you to try on in the comfort of your home so you can shop from home without doing any work.

Online shopping is huge right now, but for me, it still involves a lot of work in trying to decide what I think would look good on me & sifting thru numerous sites to find items I like. So, I love having a stylist who does all the work for me & knows what items might be a fit based on my style & size preferences.  It has been a big timesaver for me during a very busy season when I just haven’t had much time to shop for myself, either in stores or online.

How much does Stitch Fix cost?

There is a styling fee of $20 for when you order a box from Stitch Fix. However, if you keep any items, that $20 will go towards the cost of the item(s).  If you decide you don’t like any of the items, you can send them all back in the postage paid envelope and only pay the $20 styling fee! But if you decide to keep even just one item, that $20 styling fee will go towards the cost of that item, so you are only paying if you end up sending everything back.

So far, out of my 3 boxes, I have always kept at least 1 item, so my $20 styling fee goes towards that item, so I am not paying any money for this service, so it’s a win-win for me. The prices can be higher, so that’s why I have not always purchased the items, but I like seeing the items they pick for me, even if I don’t purchase, as it gives me ideas of what looks I want to try out for myself as they may send items that I wouldn’t normally try on in the stores.

How It Works:

Stitch Fix Style Quiz
  1. Head to Stitch Fix and fill out the Style Questionnaire. This is a very detailed Style Quiz where you can share your size, the look of items you prefer, colors, etc. You can even include links to Pinterest boards if you have any boards with styles you like {several of you readers recommended that I add a Pinterest board & I really feel that this was so helpful to show the stylist what I was interested in!}
  2. You will then be sent 5 items curated by your stylist within a week or two by mail. This box can include clothes, accessories and shoes (depending on what you asked for in your Style Quiz). This costs $20 to have a Stitch Fix box sent to you (however, if you keep any of the items, you can use the Styling fee towards the cost of an item in the box.)
  3. Review the items in your box & try them on, deciding what you will keep or if you will send any back. They will say you have 3 items to try on your items & then send it back. But I just recently realized that you can have up to 2 weeks, you just need to go into your account & select that timeframe in your account.  You can keep one, two or three items, etc & then send any items back that you don’t want. You will have a postage paid Priority Mail envelope to use & all you have to do is drop your bag at the Post Office mailbox within that 3 day timeframe. If you keep even one item, your $20 styling fee will be applied to your purchase of that item(s).
  4.  Discount for buying ALL of the items – If you choose to keep all the items, you will get an extra 25% off the entire box. This works out to an awesome savings on high quality items. If you only have 1 item you don’t like, it may be more worth it to keep the whole box for the discount & then maybe try to sell or swap with someone else for that item you didn’t want.
  5. Fill out the Box Feedback Form online at Stitch Fix – regardless of whether you keep all the items or return all the items or some of the items, make sure to fill out the Feedback form & checkout before you send back any items from your box. This is where you can have your $20 Styling fee applied to your order (if you keep any items).   This is really important to provide the feedback for each item about what you liked & didn’t like to provide that information for your style profile for future Stitch Fix boxes.

Stitch Fix Review of Summer Box:

Stitch Fix Kaileigh Wrap Dress

Stitch Fix Wrap Dress for Summer

Kaileigh Arnett Faux Wrap Knit Dress – $54

I love wrap dress & this dress is so comfortable, perfect for summer, with a pair of sandals for a casual evening or dress it up with heels.  I think I am going to keep this dress just because I love the style & the colors.

(You can also see the Silver Necklace that came in the box that I am wearing with the dress)

Stitch Fix Makers Estee Skinny Jean

Makers Estee Skinny Jean – $48

This pair of skinny jeans has an elastic waistband and it is the size that I always wear, but this is where different brands can all be so different with sizing, as this pair of jeans definitely does not fit, so no pictures of me wearing these jeans. :) So, I won’t be keeping these jeans.

Stitch Fix Kimono Top

Emory Park Caley Open Kimono – $34

I know that kimonos are definitely a popular & trendy item to add a pop of color to your outfits, perfect for summer. This top is very lightweight & they show how you can wear it with a tank top & pair of cutoff shorts. Or wear it with a red dress or romper & heels for a dressier look. I think it’s a bit too bold in the colors & print for me, though, I was hoping to love it just because it’s a great layering item.

Stitch Fix Chambray Top

ID: 23 Hayford One Pocket Chambray Top – $46

My stylist shared on the style sheet that this was the perfect must-have work-from-home top as you could pair it with leggings and boots for fall or black shorts & sandals for the summer. There really are so many different ways to wear this top, so it’s such a versatile piece & so comfortable too. The only reason I am hesitating on this is I didn’t think the fit was teh absolute best – if it was a lower price point, then I would keep it, but not sure I will with a higher price point for the shirt.

Stitch Fix Silver Necklace

Bancroft Maret Hammered Silver Statement Necklace – $34

I have such a limited number of necklaces that I like, that I really like the look of this necklace & I am all about silver. It’s definitely a necklace that could pair well with a variety of pieces. I haven’t decided yet on the necklace (I have until tomorrow to return, so let me know what you think!)

My Thoughts about my Summer Box:

Since I had a gift card from my birthday and the $20 styling fee that would go towards the price of an item, I decided I would get the dress for sure. I am still undecided about the necklace. I feel like I can find that type of necklace somewhere else at a lower price point, so I am going to look into it. But that’s what I love about Stitch Fix, even if I don’t get an item, it still gives me great ideas of what I like & what styles to watch out for when I do shop that might not be items I would typically look for.

That’s what I love about Stitch Fix is trying on new styles that I wouldn’t necessarily pick out & then the Style Guide they send with the box gives you several ideas of ways to wear those items. That is so helpful for me as fashion is not my strength so I love seeing the items that a personal stylist recommends.

It is a big timesaver for me so I don’t have to go to multiple stores to try on a number of items or having to search forever online. I can get overwhelmed with all the choices when I shop for clothes for myself online. So, I love having someone do all the work for me! And I don’t have to pay a thing if I end up keeping at least 1 item from my box (otherwise, you will pay the $20 styling fee). So, that’s a win in my book!
