For this December 2018 Stitch Fix review, I requested jewel tones, red pants, lightweight tops, and the color mustard. My stylist hit on every request!

For this December 2018 Stitch Fix review, I asked for more of the same, pretty much. I mentioned that I really liked the shirts from my last fix and that I’d like to try a pair of colored pants, maybe in red. I also mentioned being open to jewel tones, and all things in the color mustard.
Once again, I had a new stylist. In her note to me she mentioned all my requests and how she tried to fulfill them. I know that sometimes there is chatter online that the stylist don’t read the notes and often send things you specifically ask for them not to send, etc. While, I haven’t had this issue, but I do avoid mentioning things I don’t want. I just focus on what I would like.
Stitch Fix also offers add-ons. In my last fix, I added the Wacoal Red Carpet Strapless Bra. For this fix I requested the Cosabella pajama set to try.
Before I get into the full review of the items I received, let me tell you a bit about Stitch Fix and how it works. If you are already familiar with Stitch Fix, skip on through until you get to the December 2018 Stitch Fix Review heading.
What is Stitch Fix
If you already know what Stitch Fix is all about, go ahead and skip over this part. If you’re new to Stitch Fix, here is a brief summary of what you can expect.
Stitch Fix is a clothing subscription box. You can sign up to receive boxes on certain intervals, or just order a box whenever you want (this is the option I always choose so I don’t have to remember to cancel etc.).
Each box you order will come with 5 items. These items are clothing, shoes, accessories, and jewelry. Stitch Fix now offers add-ons as well. These are items like camisoles, underwear, and bras that you can order in addition to your 5 items.
When you first sign up, you’ll fill out a style survey. Be brutally honest with this section! You’ll also have the opportunity to add any notes when you schedule your fix. I usually use this area to request certain items that I may have seen in other reviews or on Pinterest, or to request certain types of items. You definitely don’t want to skip this part. I find that being really detailed in the notes section helps to ensure that you get items that you will love!
After everything is filled out, choose the date you’d like to receive your fix.
How Much Does Stitch Fix Cost?
You pay a $20 styling fee that is credited towards anything you purchase. Shipping is free both ways. Buy what you love, return what you don’t. If you buy all 5 items, you’ll also get a 25% discount! And yes, if you don’t buy anything, the $20 fee is not refunded (as it goes towards the time to curate the items and their shipping costs). There has only ever been one time that I didn’t buy a single item.
The cost of the items varies. You can set your price ranges in your survey. Stitch Fix even carries designer brands now!
Now that that is out of the way, check out everything I got this month below!
December 2018 Stitch Fix Review
The items that I received in this December 2018 Stitch Fix box are definitely good for transitioning from fall to winter. Some would even be great in spring, like the cargo jacket!
MIX by 41 Hawthorn Kallon Brushed Knit Hoodie ($38)
When I looked at the items that I was getting this month, I immediately knew that I was not going to keep this shirt. It gave me flashbacks of high school (am I dating myself?!?) and that’s not a time period, fashion-wise, that I want to go back to.
And, after trying it on, I felt exactly the same. It’s just not for me.
With that said, this top seems to be in high demand in the Stitch Fix Facebook Group that I am in. I will say that it is super soft.
41 Hawthorn Queensland Dolman Jersey Knit Top ($44.00)
I love this shirt! It’s super lightweight and hides all the trouble spots. I love that it can be dressed up or down and the deep purple color definitely meets my “jewel tones” request.
It definitely looks better on than it does on the hanger.
It does fit a little big on me, so I am requesting an exchange for a size down. Thankfully, it’s available!
Market & Spruce Tawnie Split Back Opening Pullover ($44.00)
This top is definitely a lightweight sweater, similar to the one I received in my last fit. I do like that the neutral color can pretty much go with any color pants.
I just don’t think it fits right on me. I think it’s just too big and makes me look really frumpy!
Tinsel Chapleen Cargo Jacket ($88.00)
I’m not sure if my stylist looked at my past fixes or not, but I just received a dark green cargo jacket in my October fix. I was hoping for this mustard-colored one then.
This one isn’t lined, like the green one I have. It also felt really bulky, so I would need to size down for sure.
I went back and forth on whether or not to keep it, because I do love the color, but ultimately, I decided to return it.
Lila Ryan Zuri Skinny Pant ($88.00)
I loved that my stylist was able to fulfill my red pants request! These are so soft and I love that the color is more of a dark pink-red!
They are a little wider in the lower half of the leg, but I have skinny calves and it’s not so wide it looks baggy.
Cosabella Pajama Set ($78.00)
Stitch Fix extras don’t always include pajamas, so I jumped at the chance to try these. I have heard a few women mention how soft they are.
And, those ladies are definitely right! This set is super soft and cozy. The fit was just too big for me, and unfortunately, there are no exchanges available. I’m not sure I would keep them anyway. $78.00 for pajamas would be a huge splurge for me and I usually only spend that much money on pants and handbags, if I really love them.
Overall I thought this December 2018 Stitch Fix box was really great. I think that my new stylist did a great job and really tried to meet every request I had made this month.
The total for my December 2018 Stitch Fix items (not including the add-on pajama set) was $322.00. If I were to buy all 5 items, I would receive a discount of $80.50 which would bring the total to $241.50. Since I am not buying all 5 items, I won’t be getting the discount this time around.
For my next fix, I am going to make some specific requests. I’d really like to try the Toms Kala Suede Booties, more Lila Ryan pants, Kut From the Kloth jeans, and lightweight shirts and sweaters. I know that specific requests can’t always be filled, but at least it offers some guidance as to what I like at the moment.
I’m also going to work on updating my Pinterest Board and look forward to seeing what shows up in January!
