I’ve tried a few personal stylists / subscription boxes before and been largely disappointed by the results. (For context, my style is colorful, eclectic and a little oddball.) Enter Julia, who stared deep into my soul and understood that I was a gal in need of a vintage ice cream skirt (and two vintage sweaters and a fabulous dress and a bedazzled Tory Burch jacket, all pictured). She NAILED IT, and I couldn’t be happier.
Re: customer service: During the ordering process, I screwed up my CrateJoy survey, so Julia didn’t receive my specs or Pinterest style board, resulting in my first box being expertly curated, but not for me. Once we figured out what happened, she was quick to resolve the matter – even though it was my fault, not hers – which was super awesome and appreciated. In sum: A happy customer who cannot recommend this service enough.
This box brings something I’ve not seen with any other clothing subscription box yet, and that’s an option to get some vintage pieces from your favorite era! I love the idea of getting some 70’s style in my closet.
I just received my 1st box. It contained 2 tops, a pair of jeans and a dress. The items and colors are appropriate for the current season. My favorite item is the Lane Bryant jeans I received! They fit me really well and went great with the tops. The dress is very pretty, I love the little miniature rose pattern on it. I had one top that didn't fit me well and will be having to return it. The box even included a return shipping label which makes it really convenient if something does not work out.
I recommend on giving them a try. Snag a vintage piece you've been craving or get an outfit without the stress of trying to find something yourself. Plus, isn't it nice to have someone else pick out something especially for you?
I love my curated thrift box.
I wore the body suit, pants with suspenders, denim jacket and flower earrings. Love. My 18 old daughter loved it so much. It’s hers now. I love the black skinny jeans but, they are too large. I contacted support and received an email within one day. I returned them using the label that was included in my box.
I ordered this based off a YouTube video. I chose the "intellectual chic" and "classic casual" style. I did not like a single piece of clothing I received. Also, as shown in the pictures, the package showed up with the clothes busting out of the package like the package was a size too small.
I did not have a good experience with my personal box. However, Julie emailed me back very quickly and was extremely polite and easy to work with. I understand running a business is not easy, but she handled my complaint very well.
I was surprised when I got the box because there should have been 2 items but I got 3 items instead. I got a very nice card where they said I got an extra item. VERY KIND of them. THANK YOU :D
I loved the dress and shirt but the blazer was too big.
Everything else fitted perfectly.
There were very few defects on the clothes which impressed me. It is after all thrift clothes.
I can really recommend this subscription box <3
Just received my 70’rocker boho deluxe box. And got 4 cool pieces this top, a west a long shirt and some pants. I will absolutely get this box every month. And maybe try different types of style. Cause I don’t have one I I love I can figure it out with a little help
My most recent box was AMAZING. A vintage coach purse and a mix of pastel goth and boho rocker chic! This entire outfit (besides my headwear) is all from my box. I got a Kodak reverse tiedye shirts, an adorbs crop plaid jacket, and some super well tailored cords. A Curated Thrift does an amazing job and they are super easy to customize with and communicate with . Create a pinterest board of your style and they know what's up. Two thumbs up!
Absolutely beautiful! I was nervous about this subscription box, because I was scared I would receive something that was not my style at all. When I got the package I sat down and I got the most beautiful blue silk maxi dress! This business put so much effort into curating my order, and they packaged it so nicely with a nice note in it. Very impressed, thank you!
Julia is so thoughtful in her picks for me. I'm not an easy person to please when it comes to clothes, and she understands that and still manages to find me things that take me just enough out of my comfort zone where I feel like I've upgraded, but not in an over-the-top way. Plus, for environmental reasons, I'm thrilled to get quality used clothing without having to rummage through a thrift shop! And even better, I know how much it will cost every month.
I have tried 4 other clothes subscription boxes and I have been let down by each one. Julia such a personal approach - she looked through my Pinterest to understand what I really want and she has the talent and intuition to build off it.
I got a beautiful designer shirt in mint condition, and it was so beautiful I yelled out in delight. I also received a beautiful soft leather jumper that is extremely chic and actually I've always meant to buy for myself but could never find one that I liked.
I almost don't want to tell anyone about this service because it's such a gem, but I need A Curated Thrift to thrive so I can continue to rely on it. Subscribe! You will love it.
Original review”The shirt I received was fairly drab (long sleeves, white color with brownish floral print) but in good condition. It was definitely not worth the cost though. I also received a free vintage t shirt for being a first time customer but it had stains on it. I’m really bummed because I was very excited about this box. To be fair, the company offers exchanges if you are dissatisfied but I was so underwhelmed that I just didn’t want to bother. :(“
UPDATE: Very soon after my review came up I was contacted by Julia from the company and offered a refund. Julia said I didn’t have to return the items (I will because that’s only fair) and apologized about overlooking the stains on the t shirt. She said she totally understood my decision to cancel and that the company would work hard to ensure the quality of products for future customers. I’m so grateful for such wonderful customer service and I regret not having contacted them directly about my concerns. Therefore, I’d like to update my review as 5 stars because, although the product wasn’t my cup of tea, the company goes above and beyond to ensure customer satisfaction. Thank you!
I absolutely loved my first box! I love the boho style and the 2 shirts, 2 pairs of pants and vest were absolutely perfect. I truly felt that a lot of personal care was taken to match my style. I also loved the beautiful pair of gold earrings for my birthday which made the box extra special! I wore one of my outfits today and I got so many compliments. I am so excited for my next delivery. This box is the best!
I waited all day to get this box and was NOT disappointed! I am a more grunge style and every box I've tried SUCKS because they only offer more girly selections. Finally a human being who understands I want to be a badass and a girl. Very thoughtful and personal in picking out the perfect outfits. Well worth every single penny!!!
JULIA! MY LOVE! THANK YOU!!
I received a jumper a blouse and a lovely gray sweater or curated and one outfit that was very cute! Contact with the curator has been positive and quick and I look forward to my next shipment!
I love getting my box! But I really love Julia's attention to detail and her responsiveness. I've emailed her a few times with feedback and she's awesome with communication. Everything she puts together coordinates and is stylish. I LOOK put together. And if something doesn't fit, there is the included shipping label for easy returns.
Also, I love the compostable, eco-friendly packaging. This is the mission. Keep it up!
All of my shipments are adorable and I love it! It is so fun!! I’m looking forward to the next one! I absolutely look forward to this treat every month! I really appreciate the curator’s kindness and thoughtfulness that goes into the pieces I receive. They become valued treasures that I cherish and enjoy wearing. I receive many compliments because they are stylish and unique. I absolutely love the concept of sustainability and this couldn’t be more in alignment with my values. So happy this exists and recommend 100%. Shipping is so fast too!
I absolutely love this box. I was a little hesitant at first so just ordered one box but after it came I loved it so much I immediately signed up for more. The clothes are my style or what I wish my style was - each piece so far has fit me well, is great quality, and is something that is a new go-to piece in my closet. You will not regret trying this box!
I really love this subscription. And julia is my personal curater. I enjoyed most of my clothing and the only reason for that was my own fault. I wasnt as very detailed as i should've been in what kind of style i am what i like etc. Had nothing to do with the stylist or curated thrift. I understand now that you can email your curater and be as specific as you would like. I opted for the deluxe box for every other month! Im getting my second box in sept and this time i gave alot more details and she welcomed that!!! I love that about her and im soo impressed with how excited she still is to find clothing for me. That excitement,energy, and care i appreciate and im extremely excited for my sept box! Hats off to Julia!! 👌👏👽💀 thank you!!!
I'm only one box into a 6-month subscription, but the first box was pretty great for a first attempt! 3 of the 4 are in my regular rotation--a plaid blouse & 2 sweaters (gray and black). Not normally things I would pick out for myself, but they look great on and add something different to my wardrobe. Julia was very quick to answer my email regarding returning the 4th piece, and adding a note to my profile.
After having tried StitchFix (EXTREMELY hit-or-miss with me; and far pricier...not to mention I really prefer vintage anyway) and even ThredUp's "Goody Box" (also very hit-or-miss), it seems like A Curated Thrift already understands me better! Can't wait for my next box!
I received my first box today and I'm ecstatic!
I have liver cancer and it's hard for me to get out.
The hand picked pieces are wonderful, very much my style.
Julia is a gem!
I feel like a little kid at Christmas watching for the next box.
Thank you Julia and A Curated Thrift for the joy you've brought me!
Just had my second piece arrive this week! I love both so far, they have fitted perfectly and are very much my style. I love Julia's personal notes, you get the feeling she loves curating for her customers! Thanks Julia, such a cool idea!
Everything was great. Fit was perfect.
Better than expected! I've subscribed to the Standard box for a couple of months and have yet to return anything, which is more than I can say about other clothing subscription boxes I've tried. Also very impressed with the customer service.
[update, below] SO MUCH TO LOVE ABOUT THIS BOX! I can't say enough about it. Every box I receive is full of great quality, well-fitting pieces in exactly the styles, colors and sizes I love! The price point is incredible -- you'll not find a better deal anywhere. And the best part is it's great for the environment! This is a winning formula and I highly recommend working with Julia. She goes the extra mile to find items you love, launders and packages everything beautifully, and includes thoughtful styling tips or notes in every box that will inspire or make you feel great about each shipment. She's super responsive to questions and her communications always make me feel important. I have never been disappointed -- I look forward to my box every month - and by some magic, everything always fits! I've been telling all my friends and many of them have already signed up. Don't hesitate -- you'll love this. I've had many different subscriptions over the years and have quit them all over this one. This is hands-down my favorite and I plan to continue subscribing forever :) UPDATED: not sure why it says I've only been here a month but I've been receiving boxes for a year. Still love the service, products, mission. Still enchanted with the whole process. 100% recommend. Best fashion curation service around!
I didn't know what to expect but was looking forward to my first box and was not disappointed. I'm not the easiest person to shop for or please, my tastes are a bit alternative so I was happy to see one of the options was punk or alternative. I received a really cool varsity type jacket for my first item so they nailed my esthetic.
