Trendsend: Stitch Fix for Moms

Hi fellow subscription box fans!  I was really excited to try this service since it says they are for moms.  I took a peek in their online boutique to make sure that I liked some of their stuff then requested a box.  It took a few weeks to arrive (no big deal since I already had others on the way). I got irritated though after reading their FAQ page and realized that they don't price match.  In other words if something in their boutique goes on sale after your box ships, you DO NOT get the sale price.  That's really crappy in my opinion especially since it's their clothes.  It's not like I went to Macy's sale rack and am requesting a lower price.  I really think they should reconsider this policy. Anyway enough chit chat as I climb down from my soap box.  Here's what I got:

1.  Peyton Jensen Johnny Racerback Dress $68
     This was super comfortable but way too big on me.  Felt more like an overpriced swimsuit cover
      up.  Verdict:  Returned

2 & 3. Eight Sixty Floral Seamed Tank $49.99 & Joes Jeans Livia Boyfriend $179
           This shirt was not my style at all.  I keep requesting no all over floral prints because they are 
           not flattering on me.  The jeans were probably some of the softest denim I've ever felt.     
           However, the rise was a little high for comfort and I just couldn't stomach the price tag. 
           Verdict: Returned both.

4 & 5.  Junk Food Summer Forever Tank $48 and Cloth and Stone Easy Pocket Short $78
            I kind of liked this top although it was a little big.  "Summer Forever" is perfect for my life 
            here in Florida.  However, it was priced at $37 on the Evereve website and no price matching.             I still didn't love it more than other graphic tees I've seen at Old Navy for much less.  The   
           shorts were a linen material and wrinkled easily.  The color also wasn't my favorite.  Verdict:
            Returned both.

6 & 7.  Michael Stars Scoop Tank with Tie $58 and Under Skies Cabo Soft Short $48
            This top was a little too big (was labeled "one size") and made me feel big.  I didn't like the 
            was it looked with the shorts.  The shorts were really comfortable and versatile.  I felt like 
            they could be dressed up or down.  I think I was really sold on them when I paired with a 
            navy tank top instead.  However, these were one of those items that was more than $10 
            cheaper on the Evereve website.  Therefore, I returned them and bought off the Evereve site
            for a better deal.  Yes, I know that I'm paying for a service but it makes me mad they won't 
            price match on their own site.  Verdict: Shirt returned and shorts purchased separately.

Have you tried Evereve's Trendsend yet?  Did you have any keepers?
