My Stitch Fix Experience, A Review

Maybe it’s me. Maybe I’m just a picky person. Or maybe I’m just too damn poor for Stitch Fix.

I took a chance signing up with the service which, if you’ve never heard of it, sends you five items of clothing and jewelry once a month, or as many times as you wish. You can choose the buy the items once they arrive or send them back and pay nothing but a $20 styling fee. If you do choose the buy at least one of the items, the $20 becomes credit toward your purchase. Not bad, right?

So I signed up, fully aware that the items were in the $50-$100 range, whereas I usually spend no more than $30 for a single pair of pants or a top, for example. I’m pretty poor. But still: if there’s something I like then I can use the $20 as credit and maybe splurge a little.

Here’s my first Stitch Fix box:

I received a pair of maroon corduroy pants, a black and white shift dress, a knit striped sweater, a patterned top, and a black swing cardigan. I tried them on only briefly so I didn’t get a chance to take any pictures of the fit.


All of the clothes were high quality and beautiful, but none of the items really fit my style, or if they did, I already owned something similar (like the maroon pants). They also didn’t fit well at all. I’m pretty small, especially on top, and even though all the sizes were XS or S, they were all huge! I sent everything back and didn’t sign up for a second box yet. I don’t know when—or if—I will. Oh well! I guess it’s back to haunting clearance racks for me.

  • A few coworkers of mine are hooked on the site and suggested it to me, but I don’t know, I like bargaining hunting and I always have to try everything on (labels lie anyway).

    • I like bargain hunting too! And I can be very particular about the cut and fit of my clothing!

  • Okay, I think this is such a cool concept – you get SENT clothes from a stylist. Too cool.


    • It is! The concept is so cool but it just didn’t work for me. Maybe I’ll try again!

  • A friend told me about this and it sounds like a really cool idea. I don’t think I’d do it though because I enjoy shopping myself lol. Plus I like coming up with my own style and shopping for my own things and I think the company picking out items for me takes away from that.

    • I agree. I do like to be in control of the things I pick and not buy them just because they’re there (which is probably part of the gimmick).

      • My friend who told me about it hates shopping and picking out clothes so I think it’s a great option for people who don’t want to have to deal with looking for things on their own!
