Okie dokie folks, time for my monthly Stitch Fix Box update!
As I've shared before, there are 3 types of folks that I feel like need to consider a trying a Stitch Fix Box:
- those who have $20 to try it out as a gamble (the $20 will go towards any item you keep) and have enough self control to say NO to things that aren't really awesome in their box
- moms who work outside of the home and need to feel pull together enough for work
- anyone who needs a decent pair of pants or jeans that fit perfectly (they have the best jeans EVER, if you struggle with finding pants Stitch Fix is worth a shot at least one time!)
I have to tell you ~ I didn't want to love this box (or expect to love it!), but other than the purple pants (and kind of the bottom left blouse . . . ), I really do love everything else.
Which leaves me in a conundrum and is why I need your help today.
If I keep everything in the box, I save a whopping 25%.
And I really think I'll wear everything except the purple pants.
But I really do have quite a few clothes in my closet and I'm not positive I need these items.
Here's how the pricing breaks out:
Laila Jayde Dolman Knit Rust Colored Top $58 ($43.50 if I keep the whole box)
Laju Omaha Two Pocket Top $58 ($43.50 if I keep the whole box)
Papermoon Norris Split Neck Blouse $44 ($33 if I keep the whole box)
Z Supply Tamika Knit Top $38 ($28.50 if I keep the whole box)
Tinsel Penny Colored Dark Purple Jeans $48 ($36 if I keep the whole box)
Total if I keep everything (after my $20 styling credit): $164.50
Here's what I think I'm going to do.
My closet is in sore need of a cleanout, so I'm thinking I need to go through it quickly and see if I have anything similar to these items that I love just as much. If so, I can send it all back (except the flannel top I think?) and if not, I might just keep the box.
(I've heard there are Facebook pages where you can swap Stitch Fix clothing – I'm going to try that out!)
I very rarely have time to shop, and struggle with finding trendy clothes that make me feel amazing when I do go anywhere (since I really do stay home most days, all day long!)
And, because I'm a little taller and long-waisted, I rarely find tops at Old Navy or Gap that are long enough and still fit me, so having tops that fit me so well is such a nice gift for me!
(As I've shared before, I've struggled with my weight almost my entire life, and am just now for the first time in my life almost to my “dream of” weight so I kind of want to feel cute when I do leave the house each day!)
And . . . (I know I know, my last excuse trying to justify my expense here, right?)
My goal is to never pay full price for groceries, so I can splurge on things like this that I love.
I don't need it.
20 years ago I WOULD NEVER EVER NEVER HAVE KEPT IT.
But today, I'm tempted.
I really do love the orange blouse, plaid top and striped top, but I'm not still not 100% decided yet.
What do you think? Am I throwing my money away? Will I love these items over the next few years? Help me out on this one ~ leave a comment to share!
Good gravy. I just re-read this post and really am thinking I may send it all back except the striped tee that I can use my $20 credit towards. Because ~ what I really want (we're saving for a big project!) vs. what I want right now is at odds with one another. WHEW! Can you tel I'm on the fence with this one????
(****UPDATE: I ended up keeping the orange top and the green and white striped shirt which was wayyyy too overpriced but I really do love them and feel so cute when I wear them! I did a MASSIVE clean out of my closet over the last week and took 8 boxes to Goodwill (EEK!) and many of the things I kept that I loved our Stitch Fix items. So, there you have it ~ thanks for the feedback on this one, I loved hearing your tips and suggestions (and I did join a Stitch Fix Facebook group so in the future I may try swapping things out there. Woot!)
