Today, I’m sharing something fun that I haven’t done in forever – I got a shipment from Stitch Fix this month! It’s been years, literally, since I last ordered a Fix. I was really active with Stitch Fix when I was working in an office and needed some variety and nicer work attire, but once I started staying home with the girls, I found myself in athleisure/workout clothes more often than not.
Soon after I had Blakely, I started dressing up more often and not leaving the house in my workout clothes (except for the girls’ school days when I go to Pure Barre!). I’ve found a lot of style inspiration on Instagram obviously, but I haven’t seen much lately that I feel inclined to buy for myself. That’s why I decided to give Stitch Fix another shot! I have never purchased all five items in a box, but I usually find one or two items in each box that I know will be a good addition to my closet – this is a good way to slowly build my wardrobe with only things I really like. Keep reading for my January Stitch Fix review to see what I kept!
Stitch Fix Review and Try-On Session: January

So I didn’t give very specific feedback about what I wanted in this Fix, other than sharing my Pinterest Style board with my stylist. I could tell she actually took a look at it because, for the most part, she channeled the styles I’ve pinned recently. I don’t really have a ton of things on my ‘want list’ at the moment, because I don’t love buying a lot of winter clothes at this point when the weather could warm up at any point (Memphis weather, it’s insane) but it’s still too early for warm-weather items. Here’s what I got:
RD Style Crew Neck Sweater
This was such a cozy sweater and while I’m a huge fan of them, I have 2-3 gray sweaters in my closet that are similar enough that I had to pass on this one. I did love the length because it would work with my Spanx Faux Leather Leggings! But…I’ve finally learned that I don’t need multiple pieces of clothing that basically look the same and my wardrobe is much smaller than it’s ever been – and it actually makes me happy!
Girly Helen Scarf
I love scarves in theory, but I really don’t wear them often at all. In fact, scarves are probably the one thing in my closet that I have too many of! This pattern was so pretty and I loved the colors, but I returned this one as well.
Just Black Grace High Rise Super Skinny Jean
I have actually been on the hunt for a pair of dark wash skinnies and these ended up being just what I wanted. This is the first pair of high-waist jeans I’ve tried and I thought they were really comfortable and flattering. The issue I usually find with ‘skinny’ jeans is that they aren’t fitted enough between the knees and ankles, but these are truly skinny jeans. They’re also super stretchy while still structured somehow. I love dark wash denim because it’s so easy to dress it up or down, depending on where you’re headed. These were definitely a keeper!
Emory Park Dulce Short-Sleeve Top
So, I loved the color of this shirt but I’ll be honest, I’m really not a fan of the lattice/crisscross neckline that is seemingly popular these days. I also don’t love tee shirts – I’m more of a blouse type of girl when it comes to short sleeve or sleeveless tops. The material was super soft and comfortable, but the style just ultimately wasn’t for me.
Evolution by Cyrus Scallop Edge Cardigan
I love a good cardigan and this one was pretty amazing. However, I have several in my closet already and decided I probably wouldn’t wear this navy blue one enough to justify keeping it. To be honest, after I went through the Stitch Fix checkout process, I tried it on again and kind of kicked myself for not keeping it because of how soft and cozy it was – but let’s be real, I definitely don’t ‘need’ it, so no regrets.
Overall Stitch Fix Review
I was really pleased with the picks my stylist chose for me, especially without me providing any specific requests! My favorite thing to keep from my Stitch Fix boxes are wardrobe staples, because I know I’ll get the most use out of them. The dark wash skinnies fit the bill in this case – I know I’ll wear these over and over all year round.

Give Stitch Fix a Try!
I first used Stitch Fix in 2015 after so many friends raved about it and as you can see, I’m still coming back to it years later! I love the element of surprise and having someone choose clothing items that you may not pick for yourself, but that you end up loving. Since I first signed up for Stitch Fix, they’ve added a Men’s and Kids’ option, so it really is a great option for the whole family!
You can create a Stitch Fix profile here and request your first box for you or a family member. There’s a $20 styling fee (sometimes this fee is waived, though!) and it goes toward anything that you keep from your box. There’s also a prepaid mailing envelope enclosed with your box to easily ship back what you decide you don’t want to keep. My general rule of thumb is to keep at least one thing (if I like it enough!) so I don’t lose that $20 styling fee!
