Q: Do I only get charged $25 for the box and then if I decide to keep any of it then I pay for the items themselves after I get the box?Asked by Lauren F., March 2020

Short Story: #1 Rated Fashion Subscription answered...March 2021

Hi Lauren, that's right, the styling fee is $25. Our stylists will then curate your box using all the preferences you share with us in your style profile. We will ship your curation to your door (free shipping) and then you get to try everything on before deciding which pieces to purchase. For anything you purchase, the $25 styling fee you paid is credited toward it. For anything you'd like to return, we include a free prepaid shipping label for you to mail back those items. Hope that helps!

Hi Lauren, that's right! You get your items, try everything on, and then decide what to buy. For anything you buy, the $25 is credited toward it. If you don't find anything you like, we'll work with you to tweak your size or style for your next box. The more you share with us, the better our styling is!

I just received my first box yesterday and I am very happy to say that I will be keeping all if the items. The box shipped very quickly. All of the clothes fit perfectly including the jeans. My stylist, Breezie, honored all of my requests on what I was looking for and what I didn't need. She picked out the perfect color palette and styles for me. It is a great feeling to know that I have a place where I can purchase clothes that fit me correctly and are flattering. I will be ordering again.

Okay so I placed my order on April 20th and although it says they'll ship out your order within 3 days of doing your style profile well that's just not true cuz it's now April 27th and guess what no tracking number hasn't shipped I actually haven't heard a word from them since I put in my style profile so I don't know what's going on but I ordered this because it says they'll ship out within 3 days cuz I need it quickly so very disappointed about being lied to essentially!😫💔🖤

I’ve only received one box but I’m very happy with the selections. The items arrive in a box which is much nicer than a bag. Easy returns. I plan to continue this subscription.

Great box!

Never received shipment - it was a gift to my daughter who was asked to give them a card number before shipping - that was not my understanding of how this worked.
I would like to get a refund of the $25 that was paid

When I saw this box on CrateJoy, I knew I had to try it. When it comes to clothes, I am alway settling or having to get things altered due to the fit never being just right. In my first box, the most perfect pair of jeans was picked for me. I adore the style, the fit, and the quality is phenomenal! Who knew jeans could look and feel good. They have become my go to jeans. I also got a new shirt in an everyday, causal style that I absolutely adore. Even the pieces I passed on were high quality and the right fit for me! To say I am empressed would be understating it. I can’t wait for my next box! No more settling for me.

The BEST styling service!!!

I’ve tried most of the other styling boxes — you know them — and been disappointed by fit and quality. Short Story, though, absolutely aces it. For reference, I am 5’2”, weigh 190 pounds, and usually wear a 16-18. Regular sizes are always too long in the torso and rise. But my Short Story stylist found me three tops and two bottoms that fit perfectly and flattered my apple shape, including the best-fitting, most comfortable jeans I have had in decades. She also paid attention to the details in my requests (no black, longer sleeves, etc. ) I can’t imagine shopping without this service. They do the sourcing I can’t do. And the quality is good, the prices reasonable. I am thrilled with Short Story.

Finally clothes that fit! I can't say enough about Short Story. They are wonderful about picking out pieces that fit me and match my style. Shopping for petite clothes can be so difficult and time consuming. All of us short ladies know what it is like to try and find jeans that fit! Short Story nailed it and sent me a pair in my first box that fit perfectly! Try it out-you won't be disappointed. :) Rachel
