You may remember that a few months ago I switched my Stitch Fix frequency from once a month to once every three months. Though I do miss the treat of seeing a Stitch Fix package on my doorstep each month, there was no way I could afford to keep the entire box month after month.
Receiving just four boxes a year also allows me to more seriously consider keeping the entire box, which is a smart financial move since a costumer receives 25% off everything if one decides to keep it all. If I decided to keep everything in the box I just received, each piece would equal right at $35.60 per item.
I’ve mentioned before that these clothing pieces are by far the best quality clothing pieces I’ve ever owned, so $35 per piece seems like a solid deal to me. (I’ve never had a ton of dolla bills for super expensive, high quality clothing, so I really love that these clothes “wash and wear” so well time after time after time.)
Time to show you what I got! PS: I took these pictures in seven minutes flat on a rainy day with a fussy baby laying two feet away. Please excuse my silly selfie faces, wonky hair, etc. Thanks in advance. 😉
Delaine Belted Shirt Dress
Usually I decide to send something back and then immediately regret it once I see it in pictures; I actually had the exact opposite experience with this dress. When I first received my box I reached for this dress and fell in love. I thought surely this was a keeper. Then I saw it in pictures, and now I’ve decided to send it back. Though I know this would be a great modest choice for an Army event, I just don’t love the way it fits me. You guys know my long-time motto – If I don’t absolutely love it, then back it goes.
Alan French Terry Asymmetrical Zip Cardigan
This top is comfortable, versatile (it can be worn zipped or unzipped), and nursing-friendly, but I just find it bizarre. I can’t get excited about this one.
Anita Skinny Pant
I don’t want to say goodbye to these pants! They are incredibly comfortable and the color is stunning, but my body is still changing post-baby and I don’t think they’re a smart investment right now. Plus the length is about four inches too long (the first pair of pants in almost two years of receiving fixes that weren’t the perfect length). Bye bye pretty pants. I’ll miss you.
Felder Belted Tunic
How do I tell my stylist the reason I’m sending this one back? I love love love the fit of it, but the print and feel of the shirt reminds of that of a men’s oversized dress shirt. I just don’t feel my best wearing this one. I tried to love it and tried it on four different times, but I can’t justify holding on to it.
Lorenzo Split Back Top
I actually don’t currently own any flannel shirts because I usually don’t find them very flattering, but this one grew on me quickly. I actually wore it to the pumpkin patch the other day and loved how comfortable is was. Definitely a keeper. Plus… that split back!

What is Stitch Fix?
Stitch Fix is a stop-anytime apparel subscription service that sends customers five pieces of clothing and accessories once a month (or more or less depending on one’s preferences) based on price points that one designates in her profile. Stitch Fix stylists hand-pick what to send each customer based on one’s online profile created upon sign up. Customers are charged a $20 styling fee upfront per shipment, but the styling fee is later applied to any item(s) the customers chooses to keep. If one chooses to send back all five items, Stitch Fix keeps the $20 fee. A customer’s best bet is to keep at least one item since $20 has already been paid. Stitch Fix also includes a prepaid bag to send all unwanted items back. If a customer chooses to keep all five items, she gets a 25% discount off of the entire box. So awesome!

Answers to your questions
Q: Do I have to receive a box every month?
A: No. A costumer can choose from one of the following frequencies: once every 2-3 weeks, once a month, or once every three months.
Q: Can I cancel any time?
A: Absolutely. You can also change your frequency any time. You can do both of these within your profile.
Q: How is the quality of clothing over time?
A: Honestly incredible. I’ve purchased over 20 items from Stitch Fix in the last two years, and I still continue to reach for them time after time. Some of them (many of them) are going on their third winter, and they’re still in great shape. I’ve never had clothes hold up as well as I have my Stitch Fix pieces. WITH THAT BEING SAID, I’m very particular about what I keep. I’ve received a few pieces that I knew wouldn’t probably hold up as well, so I returned them. I won’t consider keeping something unless I know I’ll get solid use out of it.
Q: Do you find the sizing to be accurate?
A: Yes. I still don’t understand how they do it! My profile is very honest about what my body type is like, so I’m sure that helps stylists.
