Well, it happened. I am sad to report that I finally got a bad Stitch Fix. And it’s not that it’s necessarily terrible, it’s just that it felt like this fix was curated for someone else. One of the great things about Stitch Fix is that their customer service is second to none, and when I expressed how disappointed I was this month, they immediately issued me a refund for the fee I paid (and I mean immediately – it was like 3 seconds later). I have not lost hope in Stitch Fix at all, but I didn’t keep any of my items this month.
The way it works is this: For a $20 styling fee, Stitch Fix assembles a box unique to you – your tastes, preferences, sizing, body shape, lifestyle, even your Pinterest boards are taken into consideration. You can choose to keep anything they send you, and the $20 fee is subtracted from the retail amount of whatever you keep. Likewise, you can send anything back and not pay anything more. Alright, so let’s see what I got this month:
Pixley Florence Colorblocked Dress – $68: I don’t hate everything about this dress, I only hate mostly everything about it. I can see this looking great on someone, but that person is not me. It reminds me a of a cheerleading uniform. The color blocking of green, white, and blue reminds me of the 70s. I like the draped waist and I like the fact that it’s sleeveless, but despite it looking light and flowy, it was actually rather heavy with the liner. NEXT.
Pixley Seanna Split Back Knit Tank – $48: Look, I realize this tank looks great in the pictures. It’s got interesting stripes and the split back thing is pretty cool. The thing that does not translate into photographs is the horrible, disgusting fabric that it is made of. It is springy to the point of being anti-gravity. I could not get the fabric to just stay put, instead the back swings open like it’s desperately trying to get away from me. NEEEEXT.
Skies are Blue Jemma Crochet Front Knit Top – $68: I don’t understand why they would send me this top. In my feedback to them, I have mentioned at least 3 times that I really hate crocheted anything and to never, ever send me something with crochet.The photo makes this look lacy, but it’s straight up heavy crochet. I hate it so much. I have also said how I don’t wear white shirts and I have my preferences set for tops to be as cheap as possible – there is no way on earth I’d pay $68 for a tank top. Ever. The icing on the cake is that they sent me an XL even though that is not my size. NEXT NEXT NEXT.
Market & Spruce Lana Lace Detail V-Neck Blouse – $58: I had a visceral reaction when I pulled this top out of the package. Once I composed myself I found it almost humorous – this shirt contains everything I hate in clothing, all in one article of it. White? Yep. Chinese knot buttons? Check. Paisley hippy detailing? Oh yes. Rayon fabric? I don’t know how it’s possible, but yes. Yes to all of those things in one glamorous, $58 tank top. I can’t. I just can’t.
Pixley Messi Lattice Neckline Knit Top – $68: This is the only top I would consider keeping, but it’s really only because the other items were so freaking terrible that it looks good by comparison. I like the cut-out neckline, which is a detail that I have mentioned to Stitch Fix that I like a lot. It’s black, which is also something I have mentioned I prefer. Unfortunately that’s where the positive aspects of this tank end. 1. It’s another $68 tank top. 2. It’s also an XL! Wtf? 3. The fabric is weird and crinkly. I have no idea what this is made of, but it reminds me of something my grandmother used to wear in the 90s. Ugh.
Final Rating: D
I don’t know what happened. Stitch Fix has never disappointed me before, so for them to fail so miserably at sending me anything I’d be remotely interested in is a bit confusing to say the least. Either my stylist this month was feeling a little under the weather or else this box was meant to go to someone else entirely. I am pleased that they were so glad to refund my styling fee because this box was one big mess. I will continue to subscribe to Stitch Fix because they have been awesome until now!
