I was a little more anxious than usual to get this month’s Stitch Fix box because I did something that I usually don’t do, which is cheat and peek ahead of time at what’s in the box. I saw the shipment email come across my inbox, and for some reason my curiosity got the best of me! I went straight to the “check out” portion of my profile to see what was headed my way, and I was really intrigued by a few pieces. Sure enough, they did not disappoint!
This collection of items represents a classic case of “What should I keep” vs. “What do I want to keep”. Everything fits perfectly as usual (I still for the life of me can’t figure out how they nail my size), so that’s not the issue. The issue is that two of the items are more basic and garments I would wear regularly (i.e. the items I should keep). The other two items are more eye-catching and pieces that I would likely only wear a handful of times (the ones I want to keep). You’ll see what I mean…
Stitch Fix Review
PINK CLOVER Denver Knit Top
I purchased a black top that’s similar to this one back in September (same little knot and sleeve length), and sure enough I wear it at least once every 10-14 days. I simply love basics like this! This material is insanely comfy too, so I have no questions about whether I would get my money’s worth out of this top. Do I need it right now? No. Would I wear it constantly if I did keep it? Yes. Adding basics like this is a smart choice, but since I don’t have the budget to keep the whole box this month, it’s going back.

Treat yourself to your first fix!
- Create a profile.
- Schedule your first fix.
- You’ll be charged $20 when your box ships.
- Pick what you want to keep from your box, and then put everything else back in the prepaid USPS bag.
- Go back online to your Stitch Fix profile and check out. The $20 you already paid will be deducted from your total, so if the shirt you want to keep is $35, you’ll only pay $15. If you send all five items back, you’ll lose your $20. You best bet is to fill out your profile as accurately as you can because then you’re almost guaranteed to love at least one thing in your box.
- Hang new item(s) in your closet and feel your confidence boost the first time you wear it out and about. 🙂
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 his or 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, he or she gets a whopping 25% discount off of the entire box. So awesome!
Stitch Fix offers services for men! We gave this a try for Jamie back in November when his box was free, and we liked it! He kept two items. He got his second box last month and has worn the polo he kept so many times already! My brother also tried it, and he said it’s really boosted his confidence. He plans to receive one box per month to slowly increase his professional attire (he is single and hates to shop, so this is beyond perfect for him).
