I hate shopping. The time, guessing at what size I am in that brand, hunting for deals, etc…That’s why I stick with jeans and t-shirts if at all possible. However, I work in an executive office and I’ve been really needing some new work blouses. Because I’m always dissatisfied by what I find when I go shopping and my little sister has loved her StitchFix boxes, I decided to give it a go.
Unfortunately, I didn’t realize to ask her for a referral link so she didn’t get credit for it. Oops. But I did take her advice and fill in each box, even giving my measurements, and providing my would-be stylist with as much information as I could. I also updated my Pinterest fashion page and gave them that link (you can do that!).
I was a little anxious that this wouldn’t go well as I tend to be petite, yet with shapes that aren’t so common in petite women based on the clothes I’ve tried. Apparently more hour-glass figures are not typical petite figures.
Today the box arrived and I broke into it. Quite nice packing and they even give you a card with suggested outfit parings for each piece. This box was tops only as I requested.
I have to admit, it was very much like opening a box that someone picked for me with a little bit of a “just try this” feel. Much like when I shop with my older sister. She’s definitely the human version of a personalized StitchFix box!
Style Impressions – they took a lot of what I like in colors and styles and found a great selection. A+
Fit Thoughts – this varied a bit, but for me not trying them on, they did a heck of a job. The only issue was that I had mentioned deep v-necks not being my favorite as they tend to be too deep on me. There were two shirts with v-necks with the typical “gotta wear a tank top underneath” fit. However, the styles were awesome. There is an exchange option, but the fit was so close I doubt a different size would work.
Price – I love a good deal and these are all in the $50 range, which I would normally not buy at that price. However, they do have a 25% off if you purchase all 5 items and the $20 styling fee for each box is a credit toward whatever you buy. Basically, if I only picked my 3 favorites, I could get the final two for just an additional $15. That makes each item around $35 which is more in the manageable range.
I would definitely do this again and I’m 99% sure that I will keep all 5 items. I have 3 days to decide. Oh! And you can leave feedback on each item for fit/style/price/quality/size as well as comments to help them personalize a box next time.
However, I am curious if there are other companies out there that are similar and to try and see what the difference is.
