Stitch Fix for Kids Review

Fashion Advice

I mentioned in my last Stitch Fix review that I was going to try their latest offering, Stitch Fix for Kids. Stitch Fix provided me with a $20 credit to cover the styling fee of this program. My daughter is entering 4th grade in a few weeks and has outgrown most of her school clothes from last year. She is old enough that she knows her style, what she likes…

Summer StitchFix Review
