Thred Up - This is the only company I found that offers a styling service and super cheap prices. That's because they're a consignment shop, and the items you receive are second-hand. You fill out a quiz and let them know what items or designers you love. Then they send you a box. Anything you don't like you can send back. You're not limited to their goody boxes either. You can just shop on their website, and I highly recommend you do that. There are great bargains to be had, and new items come in every day.
Stich Fix - This company had me fill out a quiz and then sent me clothes based on my answers. All of the items fit beautifully, which is tough for me. The styles were great, but the cost of the clothing was high for the quality, and some of the items seemed cheap. For example, I paid over $100 for a pair of jeans, but after one wash the seams were coming undone.
Wantable - This was very similar to Stitch Fix. I filled out their quiz, and they sent me a box of clothes. The items were about the same cost and quality as Stitch Fix. The difference between the two was the note from the stylist. With Stitch Fix I got a card that showed how to mix and match items including photos. Wantable did not do this. Instead I got a quick note telling me to wear one shirt with one pair of pants, and that was it.
Daily Look - This was similar to Stitch Fix and Wantable. However, the quality of the clothing sent was better. There was no styling card, and instead I got a note from the stylist. Of all the companies I tried, this one took the longest to deliver.
Natalie Attired - I filled out a quiz, but this one was much more detailed than any of the others I took. They even wanted photos including a head shot and a full body shot. The clothes came quickly, and they all fit well. I loved the style, the quality was good, and I kept everything. I also got a card on how to pair each item. This would be my choice of the four mid-range styling services I tried.
Trunk Club - This one is part of Nordstrom, and thus the clothing is higher-end with a lot of designer items. I took a quiz, and then a stylist sent an email showing items she had picked out for me. I was asked to tell her which ones I didn't like, and then she replaced them with other items before finally shipping everything out. The photos looked great, but when I got the items, I did not like any of them.
Allume - This is the other high-end option. I filled out the usual quiz, and then a stylist sent me looks via email. She also scheduled a time to go over my tastes via texting. Once that was done, I could pick out which items from the email I wanted to buy. These were then shipped from numerous companies, and I had to pay shipping costs for each separate company. That would be the negative. The positive is Allume finds deals and deep discounts on designer items, so you can save money. You can also go to Allume's site and shop directly, without working with a stylist. I would pick this company for high-end styling services.
So there you have it. I now have more clothes in my closet, and I even get compliments on some of the items I wear. It was fun to try, but I think I'll stick to having my friend take me shopping. Thank you Liza!
