You all know that I love me some Stitch Fix, so when I saw a similar box called the DailyLook ELITE box, I took them up on their 3 month free trial (the monthly $20 styling fee is waived for 3 months) to test them out!
How does it work?
It is very very similar to Stitch Fix. In fact, when I was taking the DailyLook ELITE style quiz, I could have sworn that it was exactly like the one I took for Stitch Fix. Upon further investigation, I realized it is slightly different, but not much. Like Stitch Fix there is a styling fee (mine would start after the 3 month trial period) but it is not clear to me if the styling fee is deducted from the cost of any items you keep. With DailyLook Elite you will receive 6-8 items in your monthly box compared to 5 from Stitch Fix. Like Stitch Fix, you keep what you like and send back what you don’t
When I received my DailyLook Elite box I noted that it was much bigger than my Stich Fix boxes. Although that was to be expected since I would be getting more items, but it still made me excited. Included with the clothing was a note from my stylist Scot as well as an itemized list of the pieces and the pricing. I was happy to see that I received items within my budget and I was surprised to see that there were even clearance priced items in the box! Since you can purchase items on DailyLook without subscribing to their ELITE box, they have the ability to have sales and such unlike Stitch Fix, so that could be a plus.
Let’s take a look at what was in the box!
Item #1: Sheer Checkered Top
When I first saw the top I was intrigued by it as it is very different. It did look a bit boxy but I tried to keep an open mind. As it turned out I couldn’t even put it on, it was far too small (even though I entered the same sizes as I get through Stitch Fix) and the material didn’t have any stretch to it to even attempt it.
Item #2: Glamorous Polka Dot Circle Skirt
I thought this skirt was very cute although I typically prefer more form-fitting skirts and dresses as the flared look isn’t very flattering on me. Unfortunately, I couldn’t even test out how it would look as like the checkered top, this skirt was way too small.
Items #3: Tribal Utility Knit Jacket
Finally something that I can put on! Sadly this jacket was just not my style and I thought the quality of it was sub par.
Item #4: Plunging Fit and Flare Dress
This dress is actually very cute although the neckline is far too plunging for my tastes and the dress itself was far too short as well. It did look cute on but it was a bit snug and I really do not have anywhere to wear it to. Plus I didn’t like the feel of the fabric.
Item #5: Pleated Fit and Flare Dress
This dress was ok. As with the previous dress it was a bit too small as well and the fabric was uncomfortable.
Item #6: Pleated A-Line Midi Dress
I love the color of the dress but the rest of it is just not me. It is too much dress for my petite frame plus I couldn’t even get it on to try it out. Another item far too small.
Item #7: Hudgen Fit and Flare Dress
The teal color of this dress is very pretty but it was too small and the neckline is far too low.
Item #8: Bed Ready Blouse
Funny name for a shirt eh? The shirt fits but it is just blah looking. I didn’t even bother with taking a picture with it on.
Overall my first Daily Look Elite box was a miss. Some of it was due to sizing issues but a lot of it was due to a lack of quality and blah pieces. I am going to give it another try next month as I am still in my trial period. I’ve adjusted my sizing so that hopefully more items will fit next month and I have left feedback for my stylist that will hopefully result in a box that is more me. Stay tuned!
