Stitch Fix #5
I need your help with this one, you guys. I got my fifth Stitch Fix box last night and I’m stumped.
I have $40 in gift cards to spend from my birthday, and I don’t want to lose my stylist credit of $20, but I honestly didn’t love anything they sent me this time.
Here are some (poor quality) photos of what I got:
I like this dress, but again, it’s 100% polyester, and not the most flattering fit. It’s probably the thing that I’ll end up keeping though? It’s $78.
This dress has some cute beading on the top and a keyhole back, but it’s very sheer and flimsy, almost like something you’d get at Forever21. Not something I would keep, especially for $68.
I really like this shirt. It has a scoop-neck back, which I love (I tried to get a photo of it, but it was ridiculous), but it’s a little long and I don’t tend to wear t-shirts too often. The major problem, though, is that it’s $74. I would never pay that much for a cotton top in a regular store!
And here’s a red-orange top with blue piping that would be cute for the 4th of July, but is too plain and boring to really keep. I think it’s $64. Also, I specifically said I didn’t like the color orange in my last review, so I’m unsure why they chose this one for me.
The last thing I got was a sheer white sleeveless blouse. The note from the stylist said they knew I didn’t like sheer things (because I’d said as much from my previous box) so they included a white camisole to wear underneath, which was nice, but…they didn’t have anything that wasn’t see-through? I didn’t even take a picture because the shirt didn’t fit right either–it was way too short.
I’d asked for a printed skirt, a midi-skirt, or a fun yellow dress in my request–they said none of those items were available. Really? No printed skirts? At all? I don’t know, this box was frustrating, especially because they sent me two things I specifically didn’t like from my previous fix–an orange top and something completely see-through.
So I’m left with a choice between the $78 shirt dress, which I think would be a nice choice for the office and would transition well to the winter with tights, or the $74 t-shirt with the cute scoop back. With my gift cards, neither one will break my budget, but after this one, I think I’m going to take a long break from Stitch Fix. The quality just isn’t good enough to justify the price, in my opinion.
Has anyone else had this experience with Stitch Fix? Did you keep trying?
Also, which one should I keep??
