First I have to apologize, this blog post got pulled over from my previous blogging platform and it just messed up all of the code. All of the pictures are low quality and weird sizes and there are spacing issues and issues with fonts and sizing. I tried to fix it, but even I have my limits. Sorry for any of the frustration this may cause you as a reader.

(After complaining that I have to go to the bathroom, Matt pulls into the “Do It Center” parking lot)

Matt: You still need to go to the bathroom?

Me: Yeah, let’s “Do It.”

How does the FabFitFun Style Box work?
 
Type of subscription: clothing
Frequency: you schedule your next box after every return
Amount of products received: at least 5

Cost: $20 per box (which is credited towards any items you buy) and free shipping + the cost of whatever items you decide to keep

In March I received an email from the FabFitFun style team offering me the chance to try their style box. They claim that it’s an “exclusive” offer, but I kind of have the feeling that anyone could enroll if they wanted to. FabFitFun has no idea that I am a blogger, and I do not believe that their decision to ask me to participate in this beta program was influenced by it. 

If you’ve ever heard of Stitch Fix or Trunk Club, this service is very similar. Upon signing up you’ll fill out a personal style profile. You’ll then receive a follow up email, asking if you want to show them a few of your favorite outfits or a Pinterest clothing board if you have one. You’ll receive five items in the mail to try on in the comfort of your own home. Keep what you like, and return what you don’t. They provide you with a pre-paid return envelope. You have three days to decide. You’ll receive an email with your checkout link. Submit your purchase, and drop your returns off at FedEx. If you keep all of the items you’ll receive 25% off of your entire purchase!
 
It’s that easy!
 
I pay for this subscription.
 


Box #3

For this box I took the initiative to email Style customer support and tell them about how much I disliked my previous box. I added that I was really interested in the destructed trend, as well as crop tops, cold shoulders, and bodysuits. I was really trying my hardest to make this next box work, so I gave her some upcoming events in my life for inspiration: a concert and a baby shower.

From the look of my style card, Kendra really took my notes to heart and put together a box with all of my suggestions in mind.

Elwood Cutout Tee – $32

This shirt is made out of a soft and stretchy material that makes it super comfortable. It has ruching along the sides which gives it some form as opposed to just laying like a normal t-shirt. The color is a speckling of black and gray and the neckline features a cutout that gives this shirt a sort of edgy appearance.

KEPT.

Bowery Destructed Sweatshirt – $34

This sweatshirt has everything I was asking for: cropped, distressed, unique.. But, eh.. for some reason I just really don’t like it! Maybe it’s because it was a little large, although I get the feeling this style is supposed to be worn a little big. Or maybe it’s because the pattern is camo, which isn’t something that I would normally wear. I can’t put my finger on the exact reasoning. I just know that when I put it on my body I thought, eh..

RETURNED.

Century Legging – $52

I used to be of the opinion that you couldn’t go wrong with leggings, but somehow FabFitFun has managed to send me yet another pair of the most uncomfortable leggings that I’ve ever tried on. These leggings are a classic black with zipper pockets and a lace up heel detail. They would be really cool, if they weren’t so stiff.

RETURNED.

Highland Dress – $40

My stylist, Kendra, sent me this dress with the possibility of wearing it to a baptism. Soak that in for a second. A BAPTISM. Let’s subtract that fact that this dress is obviously a size too big for me, and made for someone with much longer legs. The only person that should be showing this much boob is a mom, breastfeeding. I can just imagine the looks I would get, strolling into church in this little number. In all fairness, she also said that it could double as an outfit to a Taylor Swift concert, but this just doesn’t scream T-Swift to me.

RETURNED.


Alomar Moto – $68

Although I am a lover of moto jackets, this one didn’t really resonate with me. I liked the distressed features but, like the leggings, this jacket was stiff and not very comfortable. I considered purchasing it, but I think it’s only because I was so sad to have only purchased one item per box for all three boxes.

RETURNED.

The verdict: 1/5
Eh.. I had really high hopes after first receiving this box, but every item I tried on made me more and more depressed as I went. On the one hand, I could visibly tell that Kendra was trying to match my fashion wants and needs, but on the other hand.. I still hated all of the clothing that she chose! I don’t know what to do.. Should I give it one more month? Or cut ties here? Decisions, decisions..
 
Thanks for reading!
