Okay. I recently subscribed to Fab Fit Fun because — let’s face it — I have a problem. And then, to make matters worse, I discovered that they have a new clothing subscription service that is similar to Stitch Fix! I had to try it, guys. I just HAD to.
In summary, the service really is extremely similar to Stitch Fix. You fill out a style profile, and they send you a box with five items. You can return any unwanted items in your free return bag via FedEx. The styling fee is $20.
There is one major difference, however, from Stitch Fix. FFF sends you a free gift! I’ll review that too at the end of this post.
Overall, I was extremely impressed by how well my FFF stylist understood my style. I think this might be the first subscription box where I looked at what I got and thought, “damn, she nailed it.” I just gave her my style profile, a few sentences about what I like, and my Pinterest board, and she just understood me. That’s amazing. Despite all of this, I didn’t get to keep any of my items because of fit issues, which makes me SO sad.
Here’s what I got!
Plaid Ruffle Sleeve Woven Dress ($54) — RETURNED: I love everything about this dress: the fit and flare style, the pattern, the v-neck, and the black trim. But I’m just not in love with the dress on me. I thought it was comfortable, but the cap sleeves weren’t my favorite and I had to keep pulling the v-neck up so that it wouldn’t look too low cut.
Free People One I Love Cami ($58) — RETURNED: I’ve been looking for a white v-neck camisole so I was excited to receive this. However, it was also too low cut on me. The back dipped low enough to show my bra strap, which I hate. Also, the quality wasn’t that great. I don’t think it is worth $58.
Le Petite Noura Denim Skirt ($52) — RETURNED: This skirt was really cute! I liked the dark wash and buttons. It looks pretty decent from the front but, from the side, it wasn’t flattering at all.
Free People Baby Rib Tee ($34) — RETURNED: I wanted to keep this so badly but I just couldn’t justify it. The shoulders were too narrow, and the arm holes were too tight. Just not the most comfortable situation for me.
High Waist Slim Pants ($52) — RETURNED: These pants were a surprise! They were stretchy, almost like a yoga pant, but the style was very business casual. In the end, I thought that they were too tight to wear to my office but too fancy to wear casually so I had to pass on them. Also, one of the seams near the bottom of the right pant leg was defective, so not really the best quality!
Living Proof Perfect Hair Day Night Cap Overnight Perfector: This was the “free gift” that came with my box. I guess it technically wasn’t free because I paid for my styling fee and didn’t keep anything. But I love it! I have it in my hair right now, and the smell is actually intoxicating. I actually haven’t washed it out yet, but my hair does feel and look softer, so that’s a plus. Honestly, I would just buy this for the smell alone!
I’m really glad I tried out this box, and I might give it another whirl in the future knowing how well the stylist understood my style. But for now, I’ll hold off. Maybe in the fall!
Thanks for reading!
