I can’t believe I’m writing a Stitch Fix Kids review! I’m smiling from ear to ear about it!
I’ve been receiving boxes for 3.5 years (!!), Jamie’s now received four boxes, and so it just seems fitting that the girls’ clothing needs can now be met this way too. It’s a whole family affair, and boy oh boy do we love it!
Stitch Fix Kids Review
Last week on Instagram Stories, I shared my excitement as I snooped online at what would be arriving in Sadie’s first box. The items looked adorable and the brands were some of my favorites, but the prices were steep (for me), so my expectations were low as far as what we’d be keeping. I usually buy our girls very “middle of the road” priced clothing (think Old Navy, Target, and Carters with a few “splurges” from 50% off sales from Hanna Andersson and Nordstrom), so $42 for a casual dress for Sadie wasn’t justifiable.
Her box showed up two hours later, and my girls went bananas going through it! That alone was worth ordering a box! I couldn’t stop laughing!
Hadley has always been my true to size girl. When she was 18 months, she wore 18 month clothes. When she was 3, she wore 3T. Now she’s almost five, so 4T clothes are getting small. She’s always just been very easy to shop for, especially online.
Sadie is my tough one. She is built very differently than Hadley, so she’s currently fitting in 24 month, 2T, and 3T clothes. I expressed this in her online Stitch Fix profile, so her stylist sent her a mix or 2T and 3T.
Sure enough, this meant that half of the box was too big for her, so in hindsight I should have stuck with requesting what she wears 90% of the time, which is 2T. Having some 3T items wasn’t a bad thing though because four items actually fit Hadley! Riddle me that one, but we got lucky!
We had a little “Stitch Fix Kids” try-on session right there in our kitchen, and it was immediately obvious that the whole box was a keeper. I just needed to look over the prices first. Everything was soft, durable, and absolutely flipping adorable!
Sadie received 10 items (one pair of shoes, one pair of shorts, two pairs of pants, three shirts, and three dresses), and keeping the whole box means that we were able to purchase everything for 25%, bringing the total box to $168. I was completely floored!
I started thinking about how much I would pay for all of this if I went to Old Navy or Target, and it would likely be just as much, and these brands are way longer lasting (Hanna Andersson is magical as far as how long I can get use out of their clothes for the girls – wow!) During the spring I went to Target and bought five throw-on dresses for Hadley that were all $19.99 a piece + tax, but these items are only $16.80 a piece, including tax. Woohoo!
Hadley’s box also had 10 items (three dresses, a pair of shorts, a romper, a pair of TOMS, three shirts, and one pair of leggings), and her total box was $166 after the 25% discount. Everything fit great (and she loved it all which is the important part!), so we hung it up, checked out online, and are good to go!
A few additional thoughts:
- I’ve shared many times that 95% of the time I only buy clothes for me and the girls if they are a “wash and wear” kind, meaning no dry cleaning, no ironing, and that last and hold their original appearance after being washed a zillion times. This alone is the single biggest reason why we buy our clothing from Stitch Fix. There is trust there that I’m not throwing my money away on clothes that I’ll have to quickly replace.
- This is totally personal, but having two girls definitely helps with justifying clothes for Hadley because I know two kiddos will hopefully get use out of whatever I buy. No shame in the fact that Sadie’s clothes are 75% hand-me-downs. Hand-me-downs help save so much in the clothing budget, so I’ll continue to fill her closet with them until she starts to complain. 😉 Heck, even Hadley wears some adorable hand-me-downs that we get from friends sometimes! So grateful for that!
So, our back-to-school shopping is done, I think! I bought them a pair of Mini Melissa’s 50% off last month in anticipation for school, so I think I’ll stay out of the stores until I find a wardrobe gap somewhere that needs to be filled. I already know that I’ll grab them each a pair of boots for the winter (last years were from Target and Hadley loved them!), but otherwise I think they have all of the basics they need to kick off the year.
So stinkin’ fun that Stitch Fix was able to save us a trip out to do back-to-school shopping. We’ve had so much going on lately that I don’t mind having this task taken care of for us. 🙂

Hi! I’m Erica, and I absolutely adore sharing my life on this website with you! I come here almost daily to blab about all of the things related to being a regular wife and mother in today’s ever-evolving society. I share about our new home, what’s on our kitchen table, what we’re hanging in our closets, where we’re traveling to next, my crazy 5 a.m. work outs, how I make time for girlfriends, our faith, and much more. We always have a lot of balls in the air and somewhat thrive on the chaos. I believe in the power of story-telling as a form of inspiration and entertainment, so I’m here to do both! I was born and raised in north Alabama and recently re-planted roots here again after my husband transitioned out of the Army (he is now in the Reserve and it’s going so well!) I’m a super proud mom to two little girls (ages 5 and 2) who seem to be the stars of the show around here (for good reason – they’re pretty great!) I’m so glad you found me and are here reading! I hope we can get to know each other here on the blog as well as Facebook and/or Instagram. xoxo
