|They even help you to accessorize. Such a blessing for the accessory challenged like me.|
The way that StitchFix works is that you pay a $20 stylist fee, and then they send you 5 pieces of clothing/accessories. If you keep all 5 pieces, you get 25% off of the cost of the clothes, and they also credit you for the stylist fee toward the cost of the clothes. Unfortunately, if you don't keep all 5, there is no discount, but you still get the $20 stylist fee to put toward your purchase. I was pretty impressed with this first box, and if all of the items had fit, I would have kept the whole box. Because I'm not getting that wonderful discount, I ended up returning 2 of the five items, so that I would pay the same as if I had kept all 5 items.
I do have to say that I kind of expected the cost of each individual item to be less expensive--the cost is more along the lines of Kohls or JC Penny's when it is full price, than Target. I also hate that 2 of the 3 items I am keeping is hand-wash only. One of them, a cardigan, won't be washed very often because it is outer wear, but I actually almost returned the shirt because it is hand wash only. I love my washer, and am always looking for ways to make my life easier. I may see if I can wash it in the delicate cycle inside out, since the front of the shirt is all lace, and I don't want it to get snagged.

So, I have one new outfit from the box, and I will definitely be doing this again. It isn't really economizing on clothing, but if they last a decent amount of time, I'm willing to pay a little more for the items. I definitely won't be going to a monthly cycle, though. I can't justify that much money on clothing each month!
|The outfit without the cardigan. I really like the way these jeans fit!|
|And with the Cardigan. Amazingly, Ginger was cooperating for the picture...A real rarity!|
