I don't shop unless there's something I need/want to get right away, so the only way I'm going to add new clothes is to have them chosen for and delivered to me.
This time, I had a different stylist (a new one each month seems to be their method of operation) and her name was Jennifer.
The first thing I pulled out was a bracelet. I thought I had "no jewelry" clearly marked all over my style profile, but somehow "bracelet" was unchecked...meaning she would of course send me a $28 bangle. I have very small wrists and this barely fit me. What a waste of an item. I can pick out my own jewelry. I need clothing to wear.
The second was an anorak. An $88 anorak that looks of equal to or less than quality to my $40 Target anorak. Also, it's 20 degrees in Colorado this month and I don't know what I'd do with an anorak until spring. Another wasted opportunity.
This pullover looking winning. However, it clung in weird ways and wasn't super flattering. I like the style, color, and material, but not the cut. It wasn't long enough. Again, if items like this aren't long enough to be worn with leggings, I don't even know what we're doing with them in the first place. It was $64.
This dolman style top (I hate the word dolman) was something I didn't expect to like. However, it was soft, neutral, and clung in all the right ways. A keeper. It was $48-$20 styling credit.
Some jeggings. Some $78 jeggings. These jeggings had a super-high, super-thick, pleated waistband and that was such a turnoff. I did try them on. They were just oddly tight. I could've made them work. But $78 for leggings. With a weird waistband? Never. They were so soft though. I really wanted them to be perfect. Perfect jeggings that I would wear at least once a week (maybe twice) for 9 months out of the year: that would be worth $78.
The total for my box with the discount would've been $209, which wouldn't have been a bad deal with all things considered. I just didn't love the items enough. So that was kind of a missed opportunity on their part. I considered getting it all (even the dumb bracelet) before I started trying things on.
Anyway...I don't know how I feel about the idea of keeping up with Stitchfix. I feel like the "stylists" are as qualified as I am to "style" and write little notes about how one can put clothing items together. Anyone with a working eye, a pair of skinny jeans, and a scarf could figure it out.
I'm feeling very judgmental right now, apparently. They're making it to easy for me to write not-so-good reviews.
