Stitch Fix: Frequently Asked Questions, Insider Tips and My First "After Baby" Fix Review!
I’ve been wanting to do a review on Stitch Fix for a while because if you follow along with my Facebook page then you know I absolutely love the service they provide! In short Stitch Fix is an online service where a fashion stylist hand picks clothing and accessories based on your style profile then ships them right to your door. Once they arrive you have a few days to try them on in the comfort of your own home, decide what you like and then checkout online. If you keep all the items that's perfect, you don’t have to do anything else except rock those fabulous outfits! If you decide to only keep some of the items then you ship the rest back in the prepaid envelope that comes with your Fix from the get go. So simple, easy and fun!
I have been receiving fixes for a year now and have been asked a lot of the same questions on how the service works so I just want to answer some of those and provide some tips in case you're curious too!
How much does it cost? Everyone pays a $20 styling fee in order to have the fix shipped and then that same $20 is applied as a credit to whichever items you choose to keep. I always keep at least one thing to get my money's worth! The price of your individual items depends on your profile settings and what your stylist sends. Personally, I have mine set in the lowest price bracket and my items range from $20-$90 which for high quality, boutique style items isn’t bad!
Also, if you decide to keep all 5 items you get a 25% discount so sometimes it’s worth it just to keep all 5 because you’ll pay less then if you only keep 1 or 2.
Insider Tip: There are Fix groups all over Facebook where women will put up their items to see if anyone is interested in them so that everyone can benefit from the 25% discount if the original receiver of the fix isn’t planning on keeping everything. I did that with one of my fixes where I wanted 3 of the 5 items but it was cheaper to keep all 5, so I sold the other 2 online right away!
How does the referral service work? By referring friends, family and followers to try out Stitch Fix you earn credit towards your own fixes. For every person that orders a fix with you as their referral you’ll earn $25. Free money towards clothes just for telling people about how much I love Stitch Fix? Yes please!

How often do you get a Stitch Fix? Personally, I just schedule them randomly and it’s about every 2-3 months. You can however get put on a schedule to receive them more often, even twice a month if you want!
Do you like what you get? As a whole yes, most of the pieces I’ve gotten I love! There have been a few misses and pieces I just didn’t need so I didn't keep them because for me Stitch Fix isn't about building a huge wardrobe it’s about having fun and getting a couple new things here and there because let’s be honest this mom of two doesn't have time to shop in store!
Insider Tip: When making your style profile make it as specific as possible. If you know you hate animal prints then make sure you select that because otherwise how else is the stylist going to know? Also, make a Pinterest board with styles of outfits you like and link it to your style profile so they can get a feel for YOUR style. Lastly, if you are wanting something specific or have a special event coming up let your stylist know! With this Fix I’m about to show you I had attached this message for my stylist and she definitely came through…
“I just had a baby 8 weeks ago so I’m looking for pieces that I’m able to breastfeed in and are a little forgiving while I lose the baby weight. So please no jeans at this time but I would be interested in some olive colored leggings or jeggings. Lastly, I have been in LOVE with the vest look and pinned a couple to my Pinterest board for you to check out!”
So now the moment you’ve been waiting for my most recent Stitch Fix! Let me start off by saying I love how my stylist always attaches a personalized note like the one below. It just makes me feel special and like she actually listened to my needs instead of just picking out random things like sometimes sales associates do.
I about died when I opened up the box to see the PERFECT vest! Gray which is one of my favorite colors to wear and herringbone. Huge thank you to my stylist for this one, us Minnesota girls just get each other! I also loved the olive colored, herringbone jeggings by Liverpool. They are super comfy right now as I’m getting back to my normal jean size after having baby number two. Stripes already fill my closet but I couldn’t pass this one up because the fit is perfect for being able to nurse in and is also very forgiving.
The scarf was HUGE and although I do love plaid I wasn’t all about the neon orange. I wanted to keep it so bad because it would be great for a nursing cover, poncho style top or scarf but I just knew I wouldn’t grab for it so I ended up selling it on one of the Facebook swap sites I mentioned above. I got what I paid for it so I was happy and I’m hoping the new owner loves it! Lastly, the floral printed top is both functional for breastfeeding and forgiving but I’m still not sold on it because it fits a little snug through my chest. I kept it because it was cheaper to keep all 5 of my items then just 3 but I’m going to keep the tags on it just in case I decide to sell if it still doesn’t fit right after I lose the rest of my baby weight.
All and all this fix was a huge hit! I knew going into it that it was going to be a little more difficult because my body is still getting back to normal and breastfeeding really does impact the style of clothing you can wear but my stylist did an awesome job at accommodating those needs. I’ve already been rocking some of my new pieces and cannot wait until I schedule my next Stitch Fix!
Let me know what you think of my pieces in the comments below and don’t hesitate to ask any questions about Stitch Fix that I didn’t answer. Lastly, I highly encourage you to just go out and make a style profile for fun! You don’t have to do a fix right away or ever but it’s still kind of cool to have it as an option when looking for new clothes or trying to find something for your next special event.
