We've all heard of Stitchfix, right? It's a pretty fun concept, for sure. But let's be honest. Stitchfix's pricing is a little out of some of our clothing budgets. Plus, when you get used to paying $3.69 for a shirt, it's hard to justify the cost of a mail-delivery styling service.
Now, I'm not anti-Stitchfix here. But I am for helping people save money and feel good about the clothes they are wearing. So, for the month of my #write31days challenge, I'm doing a weekly THRIFTFIX post featuring some of my dear friends.
This is my friend, Nicole. She blogs at Even Me and is basically my conference partner-in-crime. Nicole agreed to be my first ever Thriftfix guinea pig in hopes to find some new outfits for the Influence Conference, which we both just attended.
I had a general idea of the kind of things Nicole likes, or at least looks good in. So, I went ahead of her to Goodwill and compiled a rack of pieces that I thought would fit her aesthetic.
Here are the results...
Left: Chambray button-down from Banana Republic
Middle: Pink 3/4 sleeve top from Gap
Right: Striped 3/4 sleeve sweater from Gap
Left: Lilly Pulitzer tank top (too big)
Middle: Pink flowy tank top from Express (too flowy)
Right: J.Crew grey tank top (too small)
THE PLEASANT SURPRISES:
Left: Soprano brand black & white shirt (B&W party perfection!)
Right: 100% lamb's leather jacket ($4, what?!)
We weren't able to find a pair of killer jeans for Nicole this round. Jeans can be a challenge, but not impossible to find.
In the end, Nicole purchased 11 shirts (!), the leather jacket, 1 pair of shoes, and a vase.
The grand total: $53.76
And here is Nicole looking all fly in her secondhand threads at Influence! Great job styling your pieces, Nicole. Love ya, girl!
What do you think of the whole Thriftfix idea? I'd love your feedback!
