The Perfect Stitch Fix and Why I Returned It

Have you heard of Stitch Fix?  Of course you have.. it is AMAZING!  Just in case you haven’t, here is the bottom line- you pay a styling fee ($20) and you get a box of hand chosen clothes delivered to you each month.  When you get the box.. you try everything on and decide what you want to keep and if you want to return anything.  You pay for the clothes once you decide!  I love this concept.  I mean, who has time to shop for themselves?!  The last thing I bought for myself was a salad from Wawa and the last time I went clothes shopping was… I don’t even know!  Stitch Fix was at the top of my list!  I quickly went through the process and waited, receiving my ‘fix’ a few days later.  I loved everything- it was just my style and all of the pieces fit like a glove!  But I still ended up returning everything and this is why.

Keeping all of those pieces would have been a dream. It really would have been!  But unfortunately, to keep everything would have meant spending $300+ on 6 pieces.  I was heartbroken to have to return it.  Of course, you don’t have to keep everything, but the individual prices weren’t much more affordable for my financial circumstances..  I’m a teacher.  My favorite was a beautiful burnt orange cardigan.  I would have totally kept that if nothing else- but that alone was $60.  In my classroom, a $60 cardigan is a booger target, paint magnet and sharpie disaster waiting to happen.

Bottom line: I simply could not afford to keep any of the pieces.

I know, I know.  But, I’m early into my 9-5 career with a growing family and want to spend that extra cash on fun things with my family!  Who doesn’t?  That’s why I have developed my newest offering- THE WARDROBE BOX.

What’s a teacher got to do with fashion?  Great question.  I’m not going to bore you with those details during this blogpost but I will have one up about my journey to September Lane Personal Style Hub soon :).  Promise!  In the meantime, let’s talk more about these wardrobe boxes.


Here are the highlights:

  • Take a quick style audit survey {here}.
  • Spend $12.95 and choose 5, 7 or 9 pieces to be sent right to you every six weeks!
  • Each box can include clothes, shoes, jewelry and accessories.
  • No one item will be more than $50.  Can your current subscription box boast that?
  • No styling fee, no commitment to keep and no crappy boxes :).
  • Keep and purchase what appeals to you and return everything else.

Created for a Teacher, by a Teacher.
But of course we don’t discriminate-
any woman is welcome to purchase!

We are so pumped to debut these boxes.  Get started with yours right here!

Now of course, as I said earlier.. this isn’t knocking or trying to break down Stitch Fix in any way.  I really did love it and think the concept is amazing!  I just wanted to bring to light a more affordable option for women that are in the same position as me!  Don’t forget to share this post if you agree!
