My first ever Stitch Fix Box! Review and unboxing video

Happy February, friends!! I just received my first ever Stitch Fix box in the mail, and I had to share! A lot of you have been asking me what I received, if I’m keeping the items and what I thought about the overall experience — so I thought I would put together a post to answer all those questions!

For those of you not familiar with Stitch Fix, here are the quick details:

  • Stitch Fix is an online fashion company that partners you with your own personal stylist.
  • The Stitch Fix experience is not merely curated, it’s truly personalized to your taste, budget and lifestyle.
  • Your stylist designs your fix by taking inventory of your Stitch Fix profile, Pinterest inspiration and individual fix note (where you can make requests).
  • The handpicked items just for you are delivered right to your doorstep.
  • To start your fix, you pay $20 for a styling fee (unless you use my link to waive your fee!)
  • You have three days to decide what you want to keep before mailing back items in a pre-paid mailing bag.

For my first box, I requested items that were casual, cozy and comfortable. I spent my last semester living and working in New York City and business casual was my typical attire. Being back to college in the Midwest, I wanted some pieces to build my cute casual wardrobe look. The items Stitch Fix sent me are spot on. They definitely checked out my Pinterest:

Before I get into too many details — I want to make one thing clear: I am sharing this post because it was something fun I tried and I genuinely loved the items I received! I do not have a partnership with Stitch Fix. All opinions are my own and what I think! I wanted to highlight my box because I love everything I received! However, I am excited to share that I do have a link you can use to waive your $20 styling fee! I will post that below!

Ordering your first box:

The first step in ordering through Stitch Fix is to set up your personal profile. In addition to checking out your Pinterest boards, your personal stylist gets to know your style taste by reviewing the style quizzes you complete and your filled out measurements. Once that’s complete you pay $20 for the styling fee and then wait for the box to be shipped (which takes about a week).

Ways to prep for your box: 

  • Customize your Pinterest boards or make one specifically for Stitch Fix.
  • Make sure to leave an individual note to your stylist if you have any requests.

The arrival:

Your home is your fitting room. Once you get your items, you’re free to try them on and decide what you do and don’t like. The items you don’t want to keep? You mail back in the pre-paid bag they send you. Paying for your items is the final step.

Inside the box, you will find the invoice that gives a detailed breakdown of your items and how much they cost. There’s also a styling sheet for each item — this tells you how to wear your pieces and what you can pair them with. It’s like Pinterest on paper and one of my favorite aspects of the box. There’s also a personal note from your stylist about why she chose each item.

If you buy everything in your box, you get a 25% discount off your total. You also get your $20 stylist fee put toward the credit. My box would have been a total of $318, but with the discounts I got exactly $100 off. It was cheaper and made the most sense to keep all the items, then return only one or two of them. That 25% off really helps.

To see my unboxing of the items I received, watch my YouTube video below! I also talk about why I think the items are a good price:

I love this Moda Luxe Brooks Crossbody Bag. The color is unlike anything I have in my closet and I love the size of it. There are great storage compartments and it’s cute! Price $58.00.

The Z Supply Buddie Varsity Stripe Knit Pullover in Dark Pink is my favorite. Price $50.00.

I also love the Jet Black Drake Scissor Hem Skinny Jean. Price $88.00. The Abby & Gail Beckette Open Back Knit Top is also so fun. Price $34.00.

I am so happy with all the items I got! My stylist Amanda did an awesome job and the stuff she sent me fits so well and is adorable! The only thing not pictured is the leather jacket which I am sending back to exchange for a different size. Overall though, I am really excited about how this experience went! I can’t wait for my next box.

I’d love to hear from you! Have you tried Stitch Fix before? Leave me a comment and let me know what you thought. Would you add the items I got in my box to your closet? Or what would you send back? You can find me on social media to share your thoughts :) @fearlesseyes97.

IF you want to order your own box (which I would definitely recommend) you can use my link here to get your $20 styling fee waived! What have you got to lose? A free box?! DO IT. Plus, you don’t pay for your items untill you decide what to keep. Why not try it! It’s fun to see what you get! If you order, let me know! I’d love to hear how it goes!
