Q: Is the $25 monthly subscription fee the same as the $25 styling fee?Asked by Carla D., January 2020

Short Story: Top Rated Fashion Subscription answered...September 2020

Yep! It's the same thing. And your $25 styling fee gets deducted from the price of any items you keep.

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: Top 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 received my first box and absolutely loved it. I got two tops, a pair of pants, a dress, and a cardigan. I was super excited to get this box because I’ve tried a bunch of other styling services and the stuff they sent me never really fit right. I’m 5’0” and curvy and usually look better in petite sizes. I’ve been looking for work pants that are ankle length and work appropriate. They found me a great pair of ponte pants that are very slimming and comfortable. I’m also really picky with tops because they're too long a lot of times. They sent me a cute striped tee (not see through!!) and a blouse that both fell above my hips. Everything was good quality and reasonably priced. You also don't have to keep everything. You can ship back whatever you don't want. Definitely a winner and I can’t wait to get my next box!

Thoughtfully Put Together

Really high quality box. The packaging was beautiful! My box included a wrap dress and skinny jeans and both are great pieces that I could get a ton of wear out of. I was skeptical at first because finding petite sizes is really hard but everything fit nicely. They clearly paid attention to my quiz responses on what cuts/styles I liked and what I wanted to avoid. Highly recommend if you’re petite!!!

Just amazing! Everything fit perfectly and she definitely listened to what I was looking for. She even tells you what to wear with it.

Yea! I found a clothing service that offers clothes that fit me! I am 5’2 and curvy and everything fit great. I also had a few emails with the company and all correspondence was prompt and helpful. I received two dresses, two tops and a pair of pants in my first box. And I’m looking forward to my next one. I really like this company.

LOVE! My Favorite!

I am obsessed with this box! I've ordered it for two months at this point, and both times, I've kept ALL 5 items! All of the clothes they've sent have fit me perfectly and been exactly my style. I noticed a couple times that some items weren't marked as petite in size, but I can tell that the stylists certainly keep the petite frame in mind when working with these brands! I so look forward to receiving this box each month. Even when I've had questions via email, I've gotten prompt, friendly responses each time!

Finally a one stop shopping for amazing petite clothes. I have tried multiple clothes box subscriptions that claimed personal shoppers. Short story has come through, great customer service that you can build a relationship with. I already requested a second box!

Best Clothing Subscription Box!

I love this box. I have tried other ones and nothing ever fit right. I have kept almost every pair of jeans I have been sent and the clothing is always well put together.
I would highly recommend this box to anyone that needs petites.

5 stars!!

I can't say enough about Short Story! It's so nice to consistently have a selection of clothes that fit the way they should, but more importantly, my stylist really listens and responds to my lifestyle. Thanks for making getting dressed the least stressful part of my day!

Highly recommend

I have been loving my boxes! The stylist has been killing it, someone that finally understands my style. I was getting so frustrated finding clothes that fit me correctly that weren’t juniors or for older ladies until I found this company! Finally I can look stylish and age appropriate. I would totally recommend getting this box, you won’t be disappointed :)
