The latest news with Stitch Fix revolves around this video, where a blogger received a box containing a pair of red shorts with two tags: one from Stitch Fix (price of $68) and one from Nordstrom Rack (price of approx $25). The blogger was dumbfounded, hurt and immediately blasted the company and canceled her subscription. But let’s be honest. Companies like Nordstrom Rack, Marshalls, TJ Maxx and model their businesses by selling things WAY below MSRP. Stitch Fix purchases clothing from the SAME wholesalers and adds their own tags. Companies all across the world follow this same practice. It’s nothing new, and the companies will sell the items for various prices. Normal.
So, besides the MSRP pricing, a business of saving you time and styling your boxes around your personal style, while pushing you to try new items and things that you may not have otherwise found is why Stitch Fix is so awesome. I will continue to order boxes, purchase pieces that I like (and think are priced right) and save myself time and dressing room heartache. (I’ve even been known to wear the items to the store for a minute to see how it really wears – you can see a tank top I bought in the photo below… sort of). Best $20 I’ve ever spent… (And if you want to try it, here’s my refferal link: http://www.stitchfix.com/referral/3275254)
