For this October 2018 Stitch Fix review, I requested more pieces to transition into fall. I asked for floral dresses, lightweight cardigans, a jacket, and more!

This is my second fix from Stitch Fix to start transitioning into fall clothing. I did get a box last month, but only kept a cardigan. For this October fix, I had the same stylist. She really does a good job trying to send me a little bit of everything that I ask for.
For this fix I, once again, requested clothing that would be great for fall. I requested more casual items for all days I’m sitting sidelines on the soccer field, as well as a floral dress to pair with lightweight cardigans, and a jacket. I also specifically mentioned a few brands that I’ve seen others getting and would love to try myself.
Before we get into the items that I received, here is the run down of what Stitch Fix actually is, how it works, and how much is costs.
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’s out of the way, let’s get to it!
October 2018 Stitch Fix Review
Collective Concepts Tanis Crochet Detail Dress ($78.00)
I requested a floral print dress after receiving a gray and white knit, striped, short-sleeve, hooded dress in my last fix to pair with a cardigan. It just made no sense to me so I was sure to be more specific this time around
I like this dress, but I don’t love it. Dresses with elastic waists like this don’t always look great on me. I felt this one made me look really wide, but with a cardigan that was completely unnoticeable.
While I am still on the fence as to whether or not I will keep this for myself, I did purchase it since it was basically free with the 25% discount.
VERDICT: KEPT, but may sell in a Stitch Fix B/S/T Facebook group
MIX by 41 Hawthorn Martina Slub Knit Open Cardigan ($38.00)
Another great cardigan for fall! It’s lightweight and loose fitting. It looks great with dresses or with jeans and a tee!
For only $38 (before the discount!), this is really great quality and I can see myself wearing this one a lot!
PINK CLOVER Chip Elbow Patch Knit Top ($38.00)
Pink Clover was one of the brands that I had specifically requested. While this shirt is really cute and super soft, it just feels more like something I’d wear to bed rather that out and about.
I made sure to mention that in my notes since I did end up buying and reselling this shirt.
VERDICT: KEPT, but sold in a Facebook group
good hYOUman Sullivan Graphic Jogger ($78.00)
LOVE. I can’t even describe how incredibly soft these pants are! I have mentioned I would love a pair of joggers for quite some time so I was super excited to get them and even more excited that they were from Good HYOUman.
There is a cute little inscription at the bottom of one leg too!
41 Hawthorn Chaplin Essential Lined Hooded Anorak Jacket ($94.00)
I was hoping for one of the dark pink jackets like this, but had a feeling I’d get green. I don’t have a proper jacket for fall or spring and this one is perfect!
It was a cute navy and white striped lining inside, a zipper, buttons, and a tie! The only thing missing is side pockets, but I figure I can just use the front ones if needed.
We are planning a trip to the Pacific Northwest next year and I think this jacket will be perfect for that as well!
Overall, I feel my stylist did a great job sending me a little of what I asked for. I didn’t love every item, but I did appreciate her taking my requests into consideration when she made her picks.
The total for everything was $326.00. I did receive the 25% discount of $81.50 which brought my total to $244.50.
I do feel the price of the jacket was quite high, but it is really well made and heavier than it might look. The joggers are also a little pricey, but in my opinion they are definitely worth every penny!
