I tried FabFitFun's Style Box

October 8, 2019 Baltimore, MD, USA

Between blogs and opportunistic Facebook ads, I thought I'd heard of every styling service out there. When the e-mail invitation came to try a style box from FabFitFun, I was surprised. I had no clue this was a thing! Since they waived the styling fee for the first box and ebates Rakuten was offering cash back, I figured it was worth a try to see how they'd style me and how the overall goods and experience compares to other style boxes, notably Stitch Fix which has become my personal favorite.

  • 6 items in box
  • Quick, easy style survey
  • Wide range of price points.
  • Good grasp of style on first try

  1. No "exchange" option at checkout, only buy/return
  2. Hard to reach customer service quickly 
  3. Website can be confusing as the regular and style boxes are accessed from the same site.

Here's what they sent me:

Gina Ruffle Sleeve Top - $42

This is cute and something I definitely would have tried on had I seen it in a store. The brand is Skies are Blue which I have also received from Stitch Fix boxes. It fit fine but ultimately I didn't feel like it was flattering on me, so I returned.

Taylah Side Tie Tank - $19

It's green! And so cheap! I was in love with this right away. According to the stylist's note, each box has a "bonus" item at a lower price point, and this was the one. Kept.

Waffle Knit Button Long Sleeve Top - $46

This was super comfy but not my style at all. I avoid tie front tops, and honestly, this shirt felt pretty flimsy for $46, more like something you'd grab from Walmart. Returned.

Mia High Waist Skinny - $89

These are Kut From the Kloth, another brand I've received from Stitch Fix, and they fit like a dream. Their denim is pricier than I'm used to, but so amazingly comfortable. I would have kept these, but I realized during try on that the pair was damaged. Since I can't request an exchange at checkout, I'm currently waiting on a reply from customer service to find out how to proceed.

Drape Front Open Knit Cardigan - $42

This was so thick, soft, and comfortable! I'd happily sleep in it. Returned only because I don't need another black cardigan right now.

Nora Small Hoop Earring - $30

I polled all these pieces on Instagram and these earrings got a unanimous yes from everybody! Funny, because I knew right away that these weren't my style and I wouldn't be keeping them. It was fun to see what you guys thought, though!

The Verdict

As far as first boxes go, this one is the best I've received. 4 of the 6 items were ones I'd have at least tried on in a store, and nothing had me thinking "why on earth would they even send me that?". Everything fit and I feel like they understood my personal style. I appreciated the range of brands and price points. While the process is not as robust as Stitch Fix, I think it's worth a second try. What do you think - should I go for it?
