Hello lovely Stitch Fix ladies! My first box of January 2017 was such a huge hit that I could not keep myself from ordering another Stitch Fix before the month ends. My 52nd box came and with it brought, once again, five pieces of gorgeousness my stylist hand picked with such expertise.

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.
- 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 12, 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.
STITCH FIX PRICE MATCH UPDATE: I’ve heard that Stitch Fix matched prices if you can find the exact same piece in a lower price point elsewhere but over the many years I’ve been receiving the service, I’ve never experienced this myself. Until now that is. I fell in love with these BCBGeneration heels the moment I saw them. As its a well known, and widely available brand, I did a research and found them for less. I am happy to report that Stitch Fix Customer Service was SUPER helpful and they matched the online price for the heels. I LOVE Stitch Fix even more. (like that was possible 🙂 )
I can’t wait to show you all the beautiful pieces I got in my second box of January! Come on ladies, let’s begin.
Stitch Fix styled the Leota dress with a blazer & flats as well as a coat & glam heels.
Leota Reye Jersey Faux Wrap Dress ($88)
Style Tip: I love Leota dresses, and I have a gorgeous red dress from them you can see here. (which I wore to a holiday party) I think faux wrap dresses are so easy to wear, and very effortless to style chic. Every time I wear one, I feel so put together and feminine. It felt natural to pair this beautiful print with timeless accessories such as neutral pumps, and a updated classic satchel. I also added crystal earrings (Rocksbox keeper) for an understated glow around my face. ( You can get a FREE MONTH of Rocksbox here)
STATUS – RETURNED
I sincerely loved this dress. The faux wrap style is very flattering and the colors & pattern is pretty stunning in person. I did not keep the dress because of a few reasons. I have a lot of wrap dresses, I recently acquired a Leota dress, and because I usually can find high quality wrap dresses on sale at Nordstrom.
Dress: Stitch Fix ( Same Brand Wrap Dress) | Shoes: Old ( Similar Style ) | Bag: Rebecca Minkoff | Jewelry: Rocksbox (Get your FREE MONTH here with CODE: theboxqueenxoxo)
RECREATE THE LOOK
In the Stitch Fix styling cards, they put together two distinct looks with the Brixon Ivy top. One is a more classic blazer style, and the second is a glam look.
Brixon Ivy Jarred Lace Detail Cap – Sleeve Blouse ($68)
Style Tip: Stitch Fix does this type of tops so well; beautiful colors, lace details, and interesting sleeves. I wanted to pair this top with these sculpting pants, and introduced a second color in tones of pink with the light pink mini bag, as well as the ever so pretty laser cut heels that also came in this box. For accessories I chose burgundy drop earrings (from Wantable), and this sparkly ring.
STATUS – RETURNED
Although this is such a cute piece, I did not find it particularly flattering on myself. I think dressing for your body type makes such a big difference in how clothes look on you. My body is smaller around the waist, and I prefer pieces that at least has a slight bit of definition. I still love slouchy pieces, or cool tunics but they should have the right cut. ( I like this similar top, and this more defined style as well)
Top: Stitch Fix ( Similar Style I Love, Another Gorgeous Option ) | Pants: Skinny Sculpting Denim | Bag: Rebecca Minkoff Mini Crossbody | Shoes: Stitch Fix – BCBGeneration Drita Heels
RECREATE THE LOOK
Stitch Fix styled the lace shift dress with neutral coats in both outfits, and changed up the accessories for a more casual vs more feminine feel.
Renee C Mckayla Lace Dress ($68)
Style Tip: The lace dress has very interesting details and different tones of pinks, and reds. Pairing it with the laser cut heels was a very easy decision, the colors are in the same family, and create a continuity. I chose mini drop earrings in blue; love little details.
Status – Returned
This dress is beautiful, and I have not one thing against it. I recently bought this dress, as well as this one in lace. I simply could not justify purchasing this beauty. I did love it though. <3
Dress: Stitch Fix ( LOVE this lace dress, another gorgeous option) | Shoes: Stitch Fix – BCBGeneration Drita Heels Exact Style | Jewelry: Wantable ( All my Wantable Reviews)
BCBGeneration Drita Laser Cut Heel ($90)
Status – Kept
Remember, in the beginning of this post I told you ladies that I fell in love with the BCBGeneration heels from this Stitch Fix, and they price matched it for me! You are seeing these stunning shoes in the above photo. I can’t get over their color, and I am surprised that for such a thin, high heel they are pretty comfy too. Kept them with much happiness.
RECREATE THE LOOK
Both outfits Stitch Fix styled on the styling cards are looks that I could wear any day. I love all the pieces they paired with the cardigan.
RD Style Tawny Open Drape Cardigan ($78)
Style Tip: This cardigan is definitely my style. It’s warm, cozy, and it has an awesome print. I paired it with my high rise Topshop, grey moto jeans, and purple block heels. ( Mine is sold out; this style is similar) I added a bit more of neutral color with this olive satchel.
Status – Returned
I have kept many similar cardigans from Stitch Fix that has filled my cozy cardigan quote for now, however I LOVED this piece. Can’t recommend it enough!
