Many of you may be aware of shopping services such as Stitch Fix and Thred Up that provide clothing and accessories delivered to your door. Saves the time and trouble of shopping. Perhaps some of you have even tried one of these services. Shopping is never a problem for me - I can always make the time - but I wanted to test this service for you, my clients. So I tried Stitch Fix and here are my results.
I signed up and provided plenty of information as to size, color, style, my profession, how much I wanted to spend and what I hoped to get from them, etc. Each shipment has 4 clothing items and 1 accessory. In my first shipment I received a pair of fantastic Trina Turk black pants which I love. Its a great fabric, feels wonderful on the body, and a great fit. I also received a royal blue long-sleeved Calvin Klein silky blouse, which I kept. The other items were so "not me" it was ridiculous. So I sent them back with paragraphs (practically an essay) of why I didn't like them and wasn't keeping them and what I wanted out of the next shipment.
In the next shipment I kept a pair of gray casual slacks and sent everything else back with several more paragraphs of yada yada yada. In the third shipment I returned everything. They sent a pair of navy pants and a navy jacket from two different designers that did not match. And a pair of the ugliest shoes I have ever seen. When I sent everything back I cancelled my membership at the same time.
Would I recommend them? If you don't want to leave the house and you are okay with someone else "shopping" for you, you may like the experience. The packages come beautifully arranged and it is fun to see it on your doorstep and open it up. Very exciting. But I was looking for things that I wouldn't be able to find myself in SW FL - and that didn't happen. And, I found the Trina Turk pants online in navy and at $40 less than what I paid through Stitch Fix. (Of course I bought them!)
I may try another service and if I do, I'll be sure and report the results.
