Stitch Fix for Kids Review

Hi friends! How are ya? Hope you’re having a lovely morning. I’m catching a barre workout today, editing the podcast for tomorrow (be sure to catch it here!) and heading out swimming with the girls. Just living that Tucson summer life until school starts again! 

Their back-to-school wardrobe got an awesome boost when their first Stitch Fix boxes arrived a couple of weeks ago. They’ve seen me get fixes for years now – since Liv was a tiny baby! – and would often ask where their boxes were. (Thankfully Mac and Mia was created so they could have a similar experience. We’ve done a few of their deliveries and love them.) When I told the girls that these Stitch Fix boxes were for them, they were soooo adorable and excited about it. They couldn’t wait to open them.

To be totally honest with you guys, my last few Stitch Fix deliveries have been a bit of a bummer. They sent me some weird pieces including a dress with intense palm tree print all over it, so I didn’t have super high hopes for the kids boxes. I thought maybe we’d keep a few things and just kind of get the feel for it, especially since it’s a newer service.

I was BLOWN AWAY by all of the amazing stuff they sent for the girls!

Our first Stitch Fix Kids delivery:

I had filled out their style profiles online and it was fun to note their personal preferences and the types of styles they usually enjoy. For example, Liv is a little more sporty than P, and also a little bit more adventurous on the fashion front. P only wants to wear dresses right now – she basically acts like she’s on fire if I try to suggest shorts and a top for her to wear – so they sent her quite a few new dresses in her fix.

Right away, Liv was stoked about the new rose gold sandals. The fit her perfectly and she’s been wearing them to church and out to dinner ever since.

She loved all of the clothes she received so much, we ended up keeping everything in her box. It was a fun mix of dresses for school, tops, shorts, and the beloved sandals.

P immediately started trying on all of the dresses in her box. She wore a beautiful red Kate Spade dress the rest of the day and was as happy as a little clam.

We ended up keeping almost everything in her fix, except for a pair of shorts and a top she’d never wear. 


Some of the things I loved about the kids’ fixes:

– They really paid attention to the notes in their style profiles. I had answered that a giraffe was Liv’s favorite animal, and she received a shirt with a giraffe on it. I feel like the fixes were extremely personalized for each girl.

– The price points!! I was expecting it to be expensive, especially since Mac & Mia is pretty pricey. I was surprised by the prices, because most of the shirts were $14 to $20 and the most expensive piece was P’s Kate Spade dress at $34. 

– High quality. The clothes all felt like they were well-made and like they’d last playtime, school, and running around. 

– CONVENIENCE. This is my #1 favorite thing about Stitch Fix: they pick items just for you that you can try on at home and send back what you don’t like. Shopping with the girls is a little crazy right now – they just toss things into the cart with wild abandon and I almost always forget the most important items on our list – but they still need new clothes. Trying on at home is a thousand times easier than lugging them to the mall, especially when they’d rather be playing or doing something fun. 

If you’d like to try out Stitch Fix for kids, my referral link is here! 

Friends with kiddos: where do you shop for school clothes? Do you shop with your kiddos or prefer to do it solo? 

Where did you do most of your back-to-school shopping when you were a kid? I still remember Mervyn’s vividly haha.

Hope you have a great day and I’ll see ya in the morning with this week’s podcast episode all about acupuncture.

    I love your blog so much! Wish you had some workouts for us 60+ gals, not much out there in terms of heart rate- joints. Lots of slow yoga -ish , stretching options but cardio —-not much.
    Have I been under a rock? Move? To your beloved Tucson and the benefits of your beautiful family nearby? Heaven! Move tidbits? So happy for all of you.
    Enjoy the summer! Our eldest just moved back to our area with the 2 grandkids…. fun times! Pool and outdoor stuff is wonderful with them. Take care!

    Oh wow those prices are decent! I tried SF, several boxes, and most of the stuff I felt like was too expensive for what I was getting. The fun of the box and stylist was cool, but I couldn’t handle paying like double + for what felt like something I could get at TJ Max. Anyway, this post turned into a rant! But glad it’s working for your family! I like your posts about your fixes and would even like to see a post of the fails!

    • Fitnessista on August 1, 2018 at 12:55 am

      i could definitely post some of the fails! my last box was a huge fail haha

    I started getting stich fix when you first promoted it like 6 or 7 years ago. I got fixes pretty regularly for about a year and then once I built up a nice collection of pieces, I decreased to receiving them on an as-needed basis, which is usually only once or twice a year now. The last couple of years, since they’ve become more mainstream, I feel like they’ve gotten sloppy and not as personal. I received some other Elizabeth’s StitchFix a few months ago! yikes!

    • Fitnessista on August 3, 2018 at 7:34 pm

      it definitely doesn’t feel as personalized as it used to. my last fix, all of the pieces were totally random.
