Cute clothes delivered to my doorstep? Yes, please!
I’ve done four boxes and with every box I’ve been more and more disillusioned.
There’s a reason I haven’t done another Stitch Fix review–I just kept waiting and waiting for something I could actually show off.
I knew I was paying a premium on the clothing–it was the mark-up for convenience right?
But last month, my box came with a tie-dyed maxi dress that was practically see-through and they were trying to charge me $78 for it…
The month before, I even returned all the items and simply lost my $20 deposit on the box, because I couldn’t justify keeping any of the overpriced items simply so I wouldn’t lose $20.
I also put my subscription on hold, as an attempt to decide whether it was worth keeping the subscription, or if I should just cancel.
The Stitch Fix Scam Video
And then I saw this video–and it sealed the deal:
I rarely shop at Nordstrom Rack unless I need some basics. There have been too many times where I’ve shopped there, and will try on a whole shopping cart full of clothes and leave the dressing room empty-handed, simply because most of the clothing is ill-fitting.
You can read Stitch Fix’s response to the brouhaha here.
I’m not buying their explanation, and I’m definitely not buying any more Stitch Fix. But I am spreading the word to help any other frugal-at-heart blogger save their pennies.
In the end, I decided I just wasn’t going to support this Stitch Fix scam anymore. Clothing to my door is not worth the 80% markup.
I’ll drive myself to the mall, thankyouverymuch.
BUT–if you are in the mood for some cheap & chic clothing., I highly recommend checking out your local JC Penney’s (I am not being sponsored or compensated in any way for mentioning JCP–I am just a very satisfied customer!).
I recently visited my closest store after another blogger did a review on their cute and comfortable shorts. I always have a problem finding comfortable shorts that don’t show off my butt cheeks, but I fell in love with their A.N.A. misses shorts and bought two pairs (you do need to go up a size because it’s misses sizes). I also ended up getting about 10 pieces of clothing for about $80, including a $15 coral dress on clearance that I’ve received endless compliments on (they only have two colors left).
So that’s my fashion service announcement for the summer.
