I found the skype convo to be quite awkward. My stylist looked all cute and professional sitting at her desk where I looked shlumpy and exhausted on my bed. It didn't feel like I was chatting with a long lost friend. It felt like I was wasting time. I'm not sure I told her anything by skype that I couldn't have said by email or in some other online way.
Anyway, I again described my style as Boho. She asked if that was a style that I wanted to keep. When I said yes, she sounded somewhat disappointed. I then told her that I love all colors - orange, pink, greens... She squealed with excitement and said, "oh, this is going to be fun!"
While my T&P style fairy was picking clothes for me, Stitch Fix box #1 came and was horrible, so I wrote an email to my T&P style fairy with comments about the pieces I got in the hopes that my comments would help her put together a better box. She said that my comments were super helpful and she expressed excitement that she was going to be the one to turn this around for me!
I felt hopeful.
My T&P box came and it was horrible. I was supposed to get 5 or more items, and I only got 4. Strike #1. I got:
- Khaki pants. Boring color. Not boho.
- A grey t-shirt dress. Boring. Not work appropriate. Not playground appropriate. I don't have any other occasions.
- A black maxi skirt. Boring. And, I really don't need another black skirt in my closet.
- A blue sweater which looked like a bathrobe on me and which shed sneeze producing angora.
In the end, we didn't have a skype convo, I sent everything back, and I told her that I may try T&P again down the road.
Meanwhile, back in my closet, I really need some new clothes! I resorted to my tried and true consignment stores around the bay area.
