You may know by now that I’m obsessed with Stitch Fix and I’ve been wanting to try Stitch Fix Kids for quite some time now, but haven’t been able to justify spending that amount of money on kids’ clothes when they surely have plenty. But with Kindergarten right around the corner for Raley (someone hold me 😥 ), I decided now was a good time to give it a try. She has plenty of clothes to get the year started, but I knew she would be needing new clothes when the cooler months start to roll around. I let her new stylist know this, and she sent several items that she will be excited to wear to school during the fall and winter months.
Raley has developed a love for clothes (we’re in trouble!) and I knew she would be so excited to open this box on her own, sort through it, and try everything on. With Stitch Fix Kids, each box contains 10 items of clothing rather than just 5 that comes in the adult boxes. This is because kids’ items are smaller, and don’t cost as much per item as adult articles of clothing do. She’s my little model and didn’t mind one bit trying on all of her new clothes and posing for me (I love scrolling through photos of her and seeing her little personality come out). Keep scrolling to see what she got and what we thought of each item!
Stitch Fix Kids Review
Item #1: Third Wish Clothing – Raye Tulip Hem Sequin Graphic Pullover
I mentioned in Raley’s style profile that she is super into mermaids right now and her stylist sent this pullover because she said the colors were “mermaidy.” She loved the colors and the sequins, so this one was a keeper (plus it’s so soft!)
Item #2: Rumi + Ryder – Nora Ruched Ankle Legging
These leggings are soft and the ruching at the ankle is so cute! They were a tad long, but they fit in the legs and waist, which is perfect because R tends to go through a growth spurt each year after her birthday. I’ve made the mistake of sizing down when buying fall clothes before her birthday because they fit at the moment, but inevitably, every year she grows out of them by January and I’m having to buy more to get us through spring. I’ve learned to just go ahead and size up!
Item #3: Sophie & Zeke – Jennifer Shift Dress
This very well may have been MY favorite item in this shipment, but it was SO BIG! I love the little pockets and the elbow patches, but it fell halfway between her knees and her ankles and I couldn’t justify keeping it when she wouldn’t be able to wear it for at least another year (she’ll grow this fall, but not that much!) I had planned on exchanging it for a size down, but they were sold out! 🙁 So this one went back.
Item #4: Four Threads – Raelyn Peasant Top
This little peasant top was super cute and flowy, but it was also a bit big. Luckily, they did have this one in stock, and we were able to exchange it! This is the first time I’ve ever exchanged anything through Stitch Fix, but it’s super easy. When you’re checking out, just select “exchange” then you’ll be prompted to select what size you want. If the size you need is in stock, they will send you that item for free (you never pay shipping!) Just throw the item you’re exchanging in the pre-labeled USPS bag with all the other items you’re sending back, and drop it in any USPS mailbox.
Item #5: Chaser – Ariella Graphic Pullover
Item #6: Rumi + Ryder – The Tulip Back Performance Hoodie
I love tops like this that can be worn on their own or thrown over other “athleisure” style outfits. I can see her wearing this in the fall over an outfit, taking it off if she gets warm in the classroom, then throwing it back on for recess. She likes this because it has a hood, a front pocket, and thumb holes. I think the overlap in the back is adorable.
Item #7: Flapdoodles – Mali 2-pack Knit Legging
This was a 2-pack of leggings (unicorns + a grey pair) so I actually got 11 items in this shipment! She loved the unicorns and, like the other leggings, they fit, except they were a tad long. She’ll grow into them so we definitely kept these. In the meantime, she can still wear them either scrunched up or rolled up at the bottom!
Item #8: Truly – Eran Sweater
This top was soft and comfy, but a little big and not necessarily her style. Neither one of us absolutely loved it, so this one went back.
Item #9: Warp + Weft – Lily Skinny Jean
I mentioned earlier that I typically size up for pants because she tends to grow into them by Christmas, but these were a size 6T and WAAAAYYYY to big. They even had an adjustable waist, but it didn’t help much. There’s no way she’s growing into these pants during this school year so they went back. I didn’t bother exchanging them, because I wasn’t sure how the next size down would fit + I think I can find jeans for cheaper. Also, she’s not a huge fan of denim. She’s more of a jeggings kind of girl.
Item #10: Rumi + Ryder – Val Fit and Flare Dress
She loved this dress (she loves anything with pockets!), but like the navy and white striped dress, it was way too big. Luckily, they had the size down (XS) in stock, so I was able to exchange it.

Sales Tax: $15.54
This totaled to less than $20 per item. This may be a little more than I would normally spend at, say Target, but I know that these are quality items that she will get tons of use out of. Obviously the best value would be to keep all 10 items because you get the 25% off, but it just didn’t make sense to keep them all this time. Interested in giving Stitch Fix a try for yourself or your child? Keep reading!
Want to try it out? Here’s what you do:
1. Create a profile (if you use this link, you’ll get $25 toward your first order)
2. Fill out your style profile (be honest and as specific as you can)
3. Schedule your first fix (you’ll be charged a $20 styling fee at time of shipment which will be applied as credit toward anything you decide to keep, unless you use the link above, in which case the $25 credit will take the place of your styling fee.)
4. Try on your items in the comfort of your own home and decide what you want to keep. (Remember, if you keep all the pieces in your box you get 25% off your entire order.)
5. Place the items you do not wish to keep back in the prepaid envelope and drop it in any USPS mailbox.
6. Go to your online profile and check out – be sure to leave specific feedback about what you liked and didn’t like about the items in your shipment. This will allow your stylist to better dress you in the future!
A few other things I like about Stitch Fix:
– You don’t have to hop around to different stores searching for something you’re looking for. If you would like a specific piece of clothing or if you have an upcoming event that you need an outfit for, let your stylist know before scheduling your box.
– You can set your price point wherever you’re comfortable with, so that you will get items that are within your budget.
– Returning items is free. Just use the prepaid, pre-addressed envelope and toss it in any USPS mailbox.
– You can stop at any time. You can schedule recurring boxes (every month, 2 months, 3 months, etc.) or you can request them on demand. You are fully in control.
– The initial $20 styling fee is applied toward anything you decide to keep from your box. It is most beneficial to keep at least one item from your shipment, or you will lose the $20 styling fee.
– If you give honest feedback, as time goes by your stylist will get to know your style better and will send you items that you are more likely to keep.
– The quality of the clothing is top-notch.
