*Add to cart*
Hey party people! Hannah and Kayla comin' at ya hot to tell you all about our experiences trying out various clothing subscription boxes.
Hannah loves shopping and has missed being able to visit stores and try on clothes during the pandemic. Kayla hates shopping and would be thrilled if she never had to set foot inside of a department store ever again. So, we decided to try out StitchFix, Nordstrom Trunk Club, and thredUP to see if we could find clothes that fit our style, price range, and comfort level.
First up: StitchFix ($20)
Stitch Fix is a personal styling service that ships clothes to your door and offers free returns. After taking some styling quizzes and swiping through looks, you can schedule a box! Your stylist will then send you 10 potential items based on your preferences, and you can pick five to get shipped right to you. Then, you can try on the pieces, keep what you love, and return what you don't. The $20 shipping charge then gets subtracted from your grand total if you decide to keep anything.
Tribal Fia Straight Print Pull On Trouser — $58
Nine Britton Dalia Brushed Knit Top — $44
Vigoss Lola Straight Leg Jean — $68
Intimately by Free People Hayley Racerback Lounge Brami — $28, and Pink Clover Esperanza Double Pocket Open Cardigan — $48

Next: Nordstrom Trunk Club ($25)
Nordstrom has their own contactless shopping option now too, called Trunk Club. You fill out your sizes and preferences, then you get to schedule a trunk! You are then shown a trunk of 10 items, and you can decide if you want to keep or change those items out. You can even opt for a brand-new trunk. Whenever you are satisfied, you can get the trunk shipped to you for $25. If you decide to keep any of the clothes, the $25 will be subtracted from your grand total.
Treasure & Bond Rib Tank — $25, 4th & Reckless Beckett Belted Jacket — $75, Liverpool Los Angeles Ripped Cuffed High Waist Girlfriend Jeans— $98, and Steve Madden Michigan Sneaker — $79.95
Here I am flexing this fit:

Finally: thredUP ($10)
ThredUp is an online consignment and thrift store. You can shop regularly, or opt for one of their goody boxes, which is what we tried! The goody boxes cost $10 for shipping, and if you keep any clothes, you get that $10 subtracted from your total. They send you 10 items, then you get to try them on, keep your favorites, and return what you don't want.
