Have you ever been super excited to get something in the mail….open it up and immediately want to cry? That’s what happened when I opened my first StitchFix box. I could not believe my eyes each time I pulled out one of the articles of clothing. It’s like they progressively got worse and weirder. I checked the label to see if they had confused me with my 65 year old school teacher neighbor. NOPE. It was addressed to me with a super cheery note from the stylist. Horrible. Like worse than my baby threw up on this and I still went out with it on anyway….horrible.
Anywho, here’s a breakdown of the items I got inside my Stitch Fix Box:
The first piece I pulled out was this Joann Textured Knit Blazer by 41Hawthorn. ABSOLUTELY FREAKING ATROCIOUS! I could not even think of an occasion that I would EVER wear this kind of jacket/blazer thing. NEVER. It is a VERY bulky quilted zippered blazer. The cut is very boxy and the sleeves were long on my petite frame. Verdict: Sending Back
Next up was the Paul Colorblock Mixed Material Top by Market & Spruce. While I liked the idea of this shirt the cut and color were not my style. This top literally drapes off my boobs and makes it look like I have absolutely no shape at all. In fact, it makes me look at lot bigger than I am. Gross. Color was also not a color that I wear. Just say no to earth tones! Verdict: Sending Back
This next outfit made of Trisha cut-out Back Knit Shirt by Pixley & Aiden Ankle Length Skinny Jean by Mavi Gold was the least offensive out of the lot. Phew! You can’t really go wrong with jeans and a tee shirt, right? But at a total cost of $192 for this ‘jeans & tee-shirt’ outfit, it makes it a little out of my price range for this kind of outfit. Verdict: Sending Back
The last piece was this Alexandriea Quilted Mini Skirt by Mystree. I’m sorry but 2 quilted articles of clothing in one box..is 2 too many! If I had a boring job and liked looking boring, I might wear that..but luckily that isn’t the case! Verdict: Sending Back
Lessons learned. I’m out $20 and very disappointed! I’ve even gone back in and looked over my style profile to see if there was anything in there that screamed dowdy, old, or matronly. But there wasn’t! I’m going to give Stitch Fix one more month before I discontinue the service!
