Another month, another Stitch Fix. And the last one of 2015! Pretty wild that we’re already into December. If you’re not familiar, Stitch Fix is essentially a personal styling service for those on a budget or with time constraints for shopping. Sign up, fill out a style profile, pay a $20 styling fee (that you can put towards your Fix), and wait for your box of 5 clothing items (maybe with an accessory or shoes, too!). You then can try each item on in the comfort of your home, select what you want to keep, and send the rest back in the prepaid mailing envelope.
I started my Stitch Fixes back up earlier this year and it seems to have hit a weird patch. My beloved stylist, Kimberly has vanished. Last month I had a new stylist, and again this month, a new one. Perhaps I’m a difficult customer? Who knows.
And that brings me to my bad news. I had another bust of a Stitch Fix. The good news for you? I’m starting Christmas early this year with a giveaway. Even if Stitch Fix isn’t always 100% on point for me, I thought it would be fun for someone to be able to try their own Stitch Fix risk-free by offering a $20 gift card to cover your styling fee. Even if the box isn’t 100% perfect, the experience and surprise still are! More on that below, but first, let’s take a peek at my December Stitch Fix!
Stitch Fix December 2015 Review & Styling
Liverpool Loren Bootcut Jean, Size 4P $78 – Returned
I’m petite, but when it comes to bootcut/flare jeans, I want them to just barely graze the ground. Unfortunately, these were too short. They fit everywhere else, though, so these weren’t a total dud.
En Creme Gonya Split-Back Pullover Sweater in Dark Gray, Size Small $58 – Returned
Well, this was much sheerer than I thought when looking at the photos… so sorry for the lack of tank top underneath. Honestly, this just felt like it wouldn’t hold up well, as the material was already fraying in spots, and I didn’t like the oversized length of the sleeves.
Pixley Amboy Raglan Sleeve Trapeze Knit Top in Burgundy, Size Small $48 – Returned
The material of this top seemed like it wouldn’t make it through a run through the washing machine. It’s incredibly thin and felt very cheap. Combined with the fact that it was too tight in the shoulder and chest, this was a no-brainer to send back.
Sweet Romeo Mika Open Drape Cardigan in Navy, Size Small $68 – Returned
When I first pulled this out, I was excited about this as it felt so comfy and cozy. It is… however, I think it’s a bit too oversized for my taste. I already own enough oversized/very casual sweaters that I just don’t feel like I need any more.
Skies are Blue Charlene Plaid Cotton Button-Up in Burgundy, Size Small $54 – Returned
I own a very similar plaid blouse to this, which I think is a better cut and fit. This button up was also bizarre, as the button holes seemed to be cut far too small for the buttons to fit through. If you can’t tell, good, because I did not have this buttoned up for the photos… #RealTalk
And now for the part you’ve been waiting for – the giveaway! This giveaway is open to any location that Stitch Fix gift cards can be redeemed, and they ship to. (You can check that on their website here.) Giveaway will end at 11:59 pm PST on 12/13. Best of luck!
What did you think of my Stitch Fix? Am I too critical, or would you have sent these items back too? I’d love to hear your thoughts in the comments!
Oh no, such a bummer it wasn’t a good box again! The third shirt is so cute, but i know what you mean about not wanting to keep it due to the quality. Hopefully your next box is a bit better.
Thanks Carly! I hope so. They offered a re-do since the last two boxes have been misses, which was a nice gesture.
I’ve been wanting to try stitch fix for forever, but I’m so worried I’ll hate everything! I’d love to see some cute tops that I can wear to work, but also style cute to wear on the weekends!
I feel ya, it’s definitely a gamble but generally they do pretty well! Thanks for entering, Erin!
You’re definitely not too critical! I think sometimes I should be more critical of my fixes. I’ve had a couple I initially like and then end up not wearing too much because I wasn’t as picky as I should have been in the first place.
Ah that’s a bummer! I’ve had it happen too – I recently cleaned out my closet again and really don’t wear my some as often as I thought I would.
If you want a good stylist, Jenn, I highly recommend Ariann! You can request her in the notes section for your next box. Since I got her four or five boxes ago, my selections improved drastically!
Awesome! I will definitely ask for her next time. They did reach out and offer to re-do this Fix so we will see how it goes!
The plaid is so cute! Too bad the buttons were weird…and no, I couldn’t tell until you said something!
Ha, thanks Christine, and glad it wasn’t that noticeable!
I want a warm cozy sweater.
Thanks for entering, Jill!
I’ve never done a Stitch but I would want to see what work appropriate clothes they would send me. Especially since I’m 6′ so most work clothes are way too short or not cut right for me.
Love your honest review!

Thanks Laura! I’d be curious as well – I know they carry petites but not sure if they have tall items too!
After discovering trendsend, I’m definitely not going back to Stitch Fix any time soon. The things they sent me recently felt so cheap and I just couldn’t pay the high price!
Trendsend sounds pretty cool – I’m thinking I need to try out a few alternatives in the new year! :)
I would like to see a faux leather jacket in my first stitch fix if I were to join. I really enjoy reading and seeing your stitch fix reviews. Thanks so much.
Thanks Christy! Glad you like them :)
I like the raglan top, but the rest was definitely bust. I didn’t realize you were short until you mentioned it once, and normally you don’t LOOK short, but those jeans definitely emphasize it.
Ha, I know right? I’m 5’3″ so definitely petite but those high waters make it even worse!
Always sucks when you have to send everything back! But I totally understand not keeping things unless you love them!
Definitely a bummer but agreed, it’s important to only keep what you love.
I love solid print blouses(:
Thanks for entering, Ashley!
I’m having similar bad luck, a new stylist every Fix but none of them are really ‘getting’ me. I know I am particular and my notes are very specific, but that’s pretty much how the service is supposed to work. Maybe I’m just being cynical, but I tend to think that now that Stitch Fix has been around for a while they may be pushing the stylists to do more in shorter time and they are being spread too thin. Also, the stylists they employ now are more than likely current/former customers as opposed to people with a real fashion education who would make better selections for strangers.
I think you’re definitely onto something there, and have felt the same way! Unfortunately I think they’re limited to about 15 minutes per Fix, and I imagine a lot of them really don’t understand much about what clothing styles work best on different body types.
i don’t think you are too picky at all. if you don’t love something, why pay for it? i don’t want to lose the $20 styling fee when i do stitch fix, but i’m not going to lose any more cash by buying something i don’t love!
Very true, and exactly why I sent it all back. I almost kept the sweater since it wasn’t terrible, but I really don’t think I would have worn it! Fingers crossed the next one is better.
I would want to see some plaids! I’m obsessed with that pattern for the holidays.
Thanks for entering, Samantha!
I like the raglan top. It’s eye-catching!
I just blogged about my first 0/5 so I feel your pain!
Aw bummer! Hope our next fixes are better! :(
i thought the baseball tee was pretty cute!
For my next fix I’m going to ask for tops to wear with my new Lysse leggings and maybe some jeans. I can’t wait to grow my wardrobe in 2016!
Thanks for entering, Natalie!
I actually loved the striped sleeve shirt! :)
Have never tried Stitch Fix….but I do love plaid.
Thanks for entering, Sandy!
I’m feel the same way. I’ve only received one box so far but I wonder how much they really listen, or can, to the notes.
Definitely seems like they’re limited a lot by stock and sizing. Hopefully we get better future boxes!
I would love to see elbow patches, pointe pants and sweaters in my next fix. I feel like there hasn’t been a great selection so far this fall
I’ve noticed the same thing, Kelly! Thanks for entering!
I am really hoping for some sweaters in my next fix!
Thanks for entering, Brianne!
I have never tried Stitch Fix, but I would love to see a nice jacket.
Thanks for entering, DJ!
I want a top with sequins and faux leather leggings in my next fix!! :)
Thanks for entering, Bridget!
I would love a cardigan in my fix!
Thanks for entering, Krista!
sorry nothing worked out from this box :(
Thanks Jane, it’s alright, there’s always next time! ;)
