My dear Stitch Fix ladies; after a particularly busy Saturday (hey what’s new 🙂 ) I couldn’t wait to sit in front of my screen and share with you my 46th Stitch Fix box. Every month, it is such a pleasure to style my Stitch Fix pieces, and share them with you. I love hearing what you lovelies think of the items I get, be it here, on social media or via email. <3
Let me tell you this; Stitch Fix is starting to make me forget about summer a little bit (not an easy task) and it’s helping me get more, and more into the mood for fall. I mean just look at the rich autumn colors I got below. Gorgeous right?
UPDATE: October Stitch Fix Review & $50 Stitch Fix Gift Card Giveaway is live!!

Today I am starting with How Stitch Fix Works, and my tips on How to Get your Best Box. Highlights from my SF reviews follow and of course I show you how I styled my September pieces. Don’t forget to check under the photos for style tips, outfit details, and the status of each item.
How Stitch Fix Works and How to Get Your Best Fix
- At Stitch Fix Website, you fill out a VERY detailed style profile. They ask everything from your height, weight, to top and bottom sizes. You include details on the types of styles you like such as glamorous, preppy or boho as well as a bunch of info on how you want things to fit.
Theboxqueen’s Tip: Be as honest with yourself here as possible. I remember when I first filled my style profile, I answered the Q’s with more of what I dream my style to be rather than what was actually needed for my current lifestyle. I am a mom of three young kids. I love glam style, and incorporate that into my life here and there. The truth is most glam pieces are not functional for my everyday life. I now ask for more casual styles.
My suggestion is to fill out the style profile even if you are not ready to order just now; it’ll give you an idea on your style and you’ll get a sense on what Stitch Fix is about.
- You pay a $20 styling fee upfront. This is applied to your keepers, so if you keep at least one piece you don’t lose it. Also when you keep your whole box ( like I did a couple times so far) you get 25% off the entire purchase. I always keep at least one piece as I would hate to lose my styling fee.
- Make a Pinterest board that is a good representation of your style. Pin types of Stitch Fix pieces you like as well as your own photos so the stylists can see who they are styling and your fashion choices.
Theboxqueen’s Tip: Here is my personal Stitch Fix Pinterest Board. I pin what I like from Stitch Fix here as well as how I styled previous pieces so the stylists can get a better idea of what I like, my body type etc. I think these all help them find the best pieces for me. Feel free to join me there to see what I am liking from new SF items, and my new SF outfits.
- Leave detailed notes to your stylist when you check out. When it’s time for checking out, they ask you for feedback on your fix. Write why you loved your keeper item(s), and the specific reasons why a piece didn’t work for you.
Theboxqueen’s Tip: I always make sure to include details such as ” The waist was a tad too tight” or ” The color wasn’t flattering on me” or ” The skirt was two inches too short for my taste”. The more specific the better.
- Make requests but know that there are no guarantees. One fun thing about Stitch Fix is the surprise factor, and how it pushes you out of your comfort zone.
- If you don’t want to wait too long for fixes, sign up for automatic shipments. You can determine the frequency. I usually go for once a month nowadays but I may make it more frequent again once the new season rolls in.
- You have three days to decide, and mix and match with your own clothes. When you are done, you send back everything you don’t want to keep; in a prepaid envelope included with your box. Love how quick and easy this system works.
- Now Stitch Fix offers exchanges. I love that SF now offers exchanges. Do you love your items but need a smaller or bigger size? Just let them know to make an exchange.
- Stitch Fix now offers petite, and maternity styles and recently started Men’s Styling. YAY!!!!!
I get a lot of e-mails with the question ” What do you ask for in your personal style profile?“.
I ask for pieces that are suitable for a mom of three kids under the age of 11, but who also loves cool, trendy items that can easily be mixed and matched. I think you can definitely be a mom, and stay chic especially with comfy pieces high on style. In addition, I ask for colors, a variety of textures, and prints. I think these bring life to your closet, and also to your existing outfits.

Ready to see my September beauties? I can’t wait to show you. I kept a top that I can’t stop wearing.
Market & Spruce Auria Embroidered Dress ($74)
The colors of the Market & Spruce dress scream fall. The red orange, mixed with greens, and blues, looks so pretty. I also really liked the shape, and fit of the dress. The little V neckline is very flattering, and the waist hits me at just the right spot adding definition. (and has a slimming effect)
Style Tip: The cute dress (love the similar color in this one, and similar print of this stunning dress) makes a statement on its own. I added beige Mary Janes. (similar style I like) I love this color of shoes, they go with pretty much every other color. I added a darker neutral bag in brown, and earrings I got (and own) from Rocksbox with a green stone. (as well as a ring, and bracelet from the jewelry service. Get your Free Month of Rocksbox with CODE: theboxqueenxoxo)

I absolutely loved this dress. It is getting chilly here. Today it was raining all day.The fabric of the dress is thin, and summer like. It just felt more summer to me than fall. (and I am really building that fall/winter wardrobe)

Dress: Stitch Fix (Similar Color, Love this Similar Style) | Shoes: OLD ( Love this Option) | Bag: Rebecca Minkoff Sold Out – Keeper From this Trunk Club ( LOVE this similar Option) | Jewelry: ROCKSBOX (Get your FREE MONTH of Rocksbox here with CODE: theboxqueenxoxo )
Pixley Heston Tie Neck Top ($58)
Style Tip: This outfit is my personal favorite of the bunch as it has 3 Stitch Fix pieces in one look. I thought the tie neck top, the zippered skinnies in taupe, and the navy wedges blended in beautifully together.
I recommend you try navy and burnt orange in an outfit too. I think they make a gorgeous pair. I just added my new tote, and these earrings in green and my outfit was complete.
Let’s first start with the Tie Neck Top. (Love this solid color option, and this patterned similar style) It has a fabric similar to the dress above. I like the details on it, as well as the bell sleeves that are oh so in style. The burnt orange color is very eye catching as well.

I picked up this similarly styled top recently. (although mine is patterned) With this fabric being as lightweight, I did not feel like I needed another one. If you are lacking a piece like this in your closet, I must tell you the Stitch Fix version is super cute. It also has the bell sleeve detail which is very much on trend.
Blank NYC Mikey Zip Detail Skinny Pants ($88)
Blank NYC (this is a similar pair from the same brand) is a brand I own a couple pieces from and one that I really like. This pair was no different. It had a fashion forward design, and cool details that gave it an edgy feel.

If you don’t have a similar pair of pants, don’t wait! Request them from Stitch Fix this moment or get the pair I have. I can’t begin to tell you how much I reach for this type of skinnies. They have the perfect amount of edge to be paired with romantic, girly tops, or to be worn with casual knits for a stylish everyday look.
Top: Stitch Fix ( Great Option Here, Love this Style Too) | Jeans: Stitch Fix (Same Brand Similar Style Option 1, Same Brand Similar Style Option 2) | Boots: Stitch Fix (Love this similar Style ) | Handbag: Tory Burch Small York Buckle Leather Tote | Jewelry: Rocksbox (Get your FREE MONTH here with CODE: theboxqueenxoxo )
DV8 Glinda Wedge Bootie ($88)
The third Stitch Fix piece in this outfit is the DV8 Glinda Wedge Bootie. I love the boots bright navy color, and velvety material.
Status – Sent Back
I thought long and hard on this one. I did want to keep these boots. I do have this pair of wedges in black, and very recently also acquired this great pair of boots (that you’ll see in the outfit below). I could not justify the purchase.

Fate Shae Sleeveless Pullover ($58)
The fifth item from my September SF box was this sleeveless sweater. I love its blue toned grey color, its cowl neck, and its longer back.
Style Tip: I kept this colorful, flowy skirt from Stitch Fix a long while ago. I love that I like it enough to wear it even after over a year. (which justifies my Stitch Fix selection process for me :- ) ) I love how the neutral grey calms down the busy skirt. I also love my new ankle boots with the look. The modern, round toe pair make the outfit look updated too.

Status – Kept
I love this sleeveless sweater. I’ve worn it at least five times so far, ( See it here worn with skinny grey jeans) and enjoyed it so much in each outfit I used it in. When it gets very cold, I’ll wear it under jackets, and cardigans.
