Stitch Fix, Revisited
I just want to start out by saying thanks for your support and kind words on yesterdays’ post. It means a lot to us! It may feel a little abrupt to jump back into my typical content, but just know that I will do my best to respond to any questions and keep you updated on his status.
I didn’t like StitchFix originally because I had time to wander and shop for clothes, but now I have other things I’d like to do instead so having someone help me choose is rather nice!
So, the biggest difference between StitchFix and Trendsend is that StitchFix costs $20 as a styling fee while Trendsend is completely free. That being said, the $20 you spend to receive your StitchFix box can be credited to anything you purchase from the box. But, if you don’t want anything, you are still out $20.00.
I didn’t have any luck with my Trendsend box, but I did have a bit of luck with my StitchFix box!
This top was great for one solitary reason. It represented everything I dislike in a single shirt. I don’t like sleeveless, I don’t like this clingy fabric, I don’t like bright colors, I don’t like busy patterns, and I don’t like a flowy neckline. So, in a way, it affirmed my distaste. Nothing personal against blue shirt, but it was removed with a quickness.
This top was cute but I knew it was going to be too short when I held it up. And in fact, it was. It could be cute under a cardigan in the fall, but it wasn’t just right for me.
Oh I should mention I’m wearing some denim that came in the box as well. They fit GREAT but were a just a little bit too loose in the waist, although plenty tight in the butt if you know what I’m sayin’, so off they went.
This top looked SO cute in the box that I was excited to try it on. The front was boring, but the back was really cute! In the end it went back because it was a little hot, even for fall/winter here in Raleigh, and it wasn’t worth the price to me.
GUESS WHICH SHIRT I KEPT?
Okay, so, after doing both Trendsend and StitchFix, I will say there is a little bit more pressure, as in “I hope I like something because I already paid $20” kind of thing when opening my StitchFix box.
I really enjoyed the process with both boxes. It was fun to be surprised upon opening them up, and the convenience of trying everything on in my home, with my other clothes available to pair it with, was great.
I’m not sure how regularly I’m going to be requesting these sorts of things, but it’s nice to do to change things up! And between the two, I’d happily try both again to see what a second round of picks looks like based on my feedback. I’ve heard a lot of women say that it takes a few times before the stylist really learns your styles and preferences, and that makes a lot of sense.
