As you may recall here, I loved my first fix with Stitch Fix. I was so obsessed with it that I scheduled a second fix because I was convinced it was too good to be true.
According to what I received in my second fix, it was.
I’m actually so confused as to how my first fix, which is supposed to be the worst one, was so much better than my second fix. Everything that was sent to me looked like it was from ROSS for $5.99.
There’s absolutely nothing wrong with shopping from ROSS, however if you’re trying to charge me a MINIMUM of $58 per item for material that was probably manufactured from China for 49 cents, we have a problem. I’ve worked in clothing, my dad had a clothing company, and I love fashion enough to know what constitutes a piece of clothing being quality and what constitutes it to be poor.
Let’s set aside the material for a second (but you best believe I’m gonna go right back into it) and talk about the design of the pieces. Sorry, but none of it was cute. Why am I even apologizing for the fact that everything was ugly? The prints, the design, all of it was just so bad. The jacket they sent me had so much potential to be cute and something I would wear but I didn’t keep it for 2 reasons: price & material. It was flimsy due to horrible material, making it not worth the $88 Stitch Fix wanted me to pay for it. I am someone who wears a jacket at all times, meaning I will splurge on a good jacket, but this was definitely not something I would pay more than $10 for from downtown LA in Sante Alley.
If I’m going to spend an average of $65 dollars on an item, it better be freaking amazing and a staple in my closet that I will keep for at least 2 years.
Ugh, I’m honestly so disappointed by this! I refuse to believe that every fix from here on out will be like this, so I’m going to give it one more try before I make any final decisions. Maybe it was just a bad month or I specified what I wanted in the wrong way, I don’t know. So I will give Stitch Fix the benefit of the doubt on this one and come to a real conclusion. You know what they say…three strikes and you’re out.
