Guys, we need to talk about Stitch Fix.
This post is sponsored by Stitch Fix, but all opinions are our own.
I’ve been a huge fan of Stitch Fix for a little over a year now. I randomly discovered them while watching subscription box review videos on Youtube. At this time, I was obsessing over menswear subscriptions boxes such as Sprezzabox and Gentleman’s Box. I’m not sure if you guys can tell, but I like to keep things a little more androgynous. So it only makes sense to take a peek at men’s subscription boxes.
At this time last year, I was contemplating giving Stitch Fix a try but two things were stopping me, money and time.
I had little to no money and when I did have money, I wasn’t sure if I wanted to use that money on subscribing to a subscription company that would do the shopping for me. I’m thinking “I’m already broke, do I really want to use my extra money to have a stylist shop for me?” Ideally, my answer would be “yes! do the shopping for me!” but I couldn’t risk not being absolutely satisfied with what my money was buying me. So, unfortunately, I had to pass on subscribing to Stich Fix.
After having to pass up the opportunity to subscribe to Stitch Fix before, you can imagine how thrilled we were to get the chance to work with them. Hannah and I each got a Fix of our own to test run. We were super excited for this opportunity because… hello? This meant a personal stylist would be doing the shopping for us!
We both sometimes struggle with always coming up with that perfect combination for an Instagram-ready look.
(Actually, we don’t really care about looking perfect on Instagram, we just want to look cute.) Thankfully, Stitch Fix offered us (and anyone who subscribes) the opportunity to receive hand picked pieces that fit our own style. I must admit, although I was beyond excited, I was also nervous because I’m more androgynous. I usually shop in the men’s section for tops and the women’s and boy’s section for bottoms.

Let’s talk about how it works.
Step 1: Visit StitchFix.com
Step 3: Select “Get Started” where you’ll be directed to the sign-up page.
Step 4: Fill out your Style Guide.
Step 5: Schedule your Fix.
Step 6: Recieve your Fix and use the 3-day try-on window to try on all of the products your stylist has sent.
Step 7: Pay for the items you love and return the items you don’t love for free! Yes, we said free!
Step 8: Leave reviews of all of your items to give your stylist a better idea of what you like and don’t like.
The Stitch Fix sign-up process is super easy and fun.
This is probably because we are ready to go anytime there’s a quiz involved. Regardless, we were totally impressed. The Stitch Fix Style Quiz asks a series of questions about your size, measurements as well as your personal style. They are thorough, and we love it! The style quiz helps to learn what your style is like so that your personal stylist can find the right clothes for you.
Enough about my obsession with Stitch Fix. Let’s get into what you’re really here for, the review.
StitchFix sent us boxes packed with goodies. In my fix, I received two full outfits. This includes two tops, two bottoms, and sneakers. Yes, you even get shoes and accessories, if you’re into that.
My Fix was a tough one.
I filled out the women’s style profile because I wasn’t sure if I could get away with filling out a men’s style profile given my tiny size. Upon receiving my box, I soon realized how slim the inventory for androgynous women was. However, even though the tops weren’t completely my style, I loved the distressed boyfriend jeans they sent me. I was also excited to get sneakers, which I really liked!
After filling out the “post-fix” survey, I was told by the StitchFix crew that filling out a men’s style profile would be the better choice to ensure that I receive items that fit my style. If you are a woman with a more androgynous style, I recommend you fill out the men’s style guide upon signing up. Despite this miscommunication, I am still a huge fan of StitchFix and I will be filling out that men’s style guide on my second go-around.

I really respect that they were able to find pieces I like from a selection of women’s clothing.
I have a really hard time doing that myself! (which is why I love boy’s sections). I also am impressed because it’s my first box. Subscription services that are personalized like Stitch Fix usually get better with time. As you tell them what you like and don’t like, your stylist will get to know you better, and each box will get more and more tailored to you!
Though my fix was easier than Ariana’s because I do like and wear women’s clothing, I tend to be very picky. I’m definitely a do-it-yourself type, and I find it hard to explain what I like, just that I know it when I see it.
While I love subscription boxes, I was a little bit of a tough sell on the “shop for me” concept.
However, I changed my mind about this even before my fix arrived. One of my favorite things about Stitch Fix is that they check your social media, even your Pinterest! This was really exciting for me because I am so picky. I loved that my stylist would look over my Pinterest style inspiration boards, and check Instagram to see what I wear and like.
When my fix arrived, it definitely lived up to my excitement.
I got a denim button up, denim skinny jeans, a striped dress, a white bell-sleeved top, and a blue and gold layered necklace.
Of course, my favorite pieces were the jeans and button up, which I paired with some denim heels I already own. I also wore the layered necklace, which I actually really liked as well.
My final thoughts are positive.
The vibe of my box was great. Even though the dress and top weren’t my favorite pieces, I still can see how my stylist represented me. For my first fix, I’m definitely impressed. I can’t wait to see what comes in my next fix!
