The box it comes in is fabulous!
|Cons||Even if you request an item, you can’t be sure you will receive it.
I had fit issues with the first few boxes and some really ‘off’ stuff sent. You have to persevere as it definitely gets better with time!
|Expensive. If you were to keep your entire box, it would easily be $500-$1000!
As you can see all the items on the Evereve website, it’s less exciting than Stitch Fix where you have no idea what you could receive!
|I personally thought the quality of the clothing was very poor
|Overall impressions||The original and my personal favorite! I love the element of surprise, the personal notes from your stylist, how closely they look at your Pinterest board and the style of the clothes.||I love the fact you get entire outfits and sale items. However, it’s a bit too expensive for me and not really my style. Definitely more ‘boho chic’ and ‘edgy’ than Stitch Fix.||Not a fan. I thought it was poor quality clothing and impersonal (both the stylist’s note, styling advice and customer service).
|Rating (out of 10)||9…it’d be 10 if it was a little cheaper!||7…mainly due to style||3…not impressed!|
