I wouldn’t normally make a video like this, but given how everybody is locked away due to having the nasty coronalurgee, it seemed as good a time as any to join in with the craze of unboxing videos.
Stitch Fix is a service that promotes itself as a stylist – you provide them with £10 and fill in a questionnaire about what you wear. You tell them your measurements, how much you are willing to spend and how far from your standard style that you would mind deviating. Then they deliver clothes based on your needs. Whatever you don’t like, you send back, and you pay for whatever you keep.
More than anything, my wardrobe needs a lot more colour. You don’t have to look far through pictures and videos of me to realise that my etiquette is very black and deep blue. Think 14-year-old who idolises Tony Hawk but doesn’t have the guts to stand on a skateboard. Except he is 29. If it’s another colour, it’s probably either a band shirt, or a novelty design from Qwertee or TeeFury.
I was once in ownership of a t-shirt that said ‘Nobody Knows I’m a Lesbian’ on it, although I have a decent enough excuse for that – all of my clothes were soaked at Download Festival, and that was the least profane, relatively cheap replacement shirt that I could find. I also wear the fleece that you see in this video a lot.
I went with the cheapest options on all of the items of clothing and still the five items added up to a value of over £200. If I’d gone for the highest option, it could have been up to a £1000. There was also a lot of reference to ‘next time’ (or “your next Fix” to be precise), as though it were promoting itself as a subscription service. I was half hoping for it not to work out, or I could end up very much out of pocket.
So, was it a success? Well, this comment from a relative of mine provides us with a clue…
Watch the video above to find out what went so wrong. That said, though things didn’t work out, that’s not to say it won’t for you. I might just have been unlucky this time around, but I’m not going to take the gamble again.
