Oh, StitchFix. I gave you a try a few months ago, and although the cost was high, I fell in love with my first box. The clothes were perfect for me. I got my second box back in December that I didn't blog about that was "OK." I kept one shirt that I couldn't live without. My latest StitchFix Box, this may be my last.
See I like StitchFix because they choose things I might not usually pick for myself. They had done a pretty great job at pegging my size and style. Their prices are a bit high, though. I have found that if it is a quality piece that I will wear over and over, I don't mind paying a little more. It is so easy to let that box of custom choices come to my door, even if I only keep 1 of the five it is worth it to me.
Latest StitchFix Box
I opened my latest StitchFix box yesterday and was less than wowed. The first thing out of the box was a pair of Jasmyn Lace Up Gladiator sandals that weren't my style (AT ALL). Like everything I get from Stitch Fix I give it a try first, but these looked to be Target quality sandals with a $90 price tag! UM...they didn't even come out of the box.
Next up was a pair of Dear John Finnegan Roll Cuff Chino shorts. I had high hopes for these shorts. They fit nice in the waist, and they were the right length, but they had an odd problem. The legs of the shorts were SO WIDE! They just looked awkward, at least to me. I couldn't justify the $54 price tag on something that didn't make me happy.
The fabric on this Kaileigh Viktoria Knit Dress made me squeal a little. I love the print, but the fit just wasn't for me. It hangs on me like a moo-moo. I tried a belt to see if it would help but not so much. While this dress is comfy, and I love the print, I didn't feel like it made me look like the best version of me for $48. So back in the box it went.
Another beautiful print fabric came out of the latest StitchFix box. This Kaileigh Conrad tie back top was fantastic, but it just fit me weird. The pricing on this wasn't terrible at $34. There was nothing wrong with it, and I did love it. It just wasn't for me. I tried to like it with a sweater but then wondered why I would by something that I had to cover up with a sweater? So back in the box it went.
Last but not least was this gray Market & Spruce Sam Hi-Lo Short Sleeve T-shirt. I knew I loved it when I saw it. The shirt was so comfy. It is a hi-low tee, and the back was low, at least on me. I am only 5 feet tall, so everything is long on me. I almost kept this but it is just a gray t-shirt, and I can find one of those at just about any retailer. $38 seems kind of pricey for a t-shirt too! Not the point of me having something special sent in.
So all five pieces were a bust for me this time. I couldn't justify keeping anything from my latest StitchFix box. The fit just wasn't that ideal for the high price tag. When they get a box right, it is perfect because if you keep all five items, you take an additional 25% off. This box just didn't have the "it factor" for me like my first box did. StitchFix has taught me to try on things that I wouldn't usually and step out of my comfort zone a little when it comes to fashion. I may just take those tips and head out shopping this weekend to see what I can find on my own. While I love the convenience of having those StitchFix boxes come to my door, the sticker shock is getting to be a bit much.
