Here’s what I asked for:
- Style: Hipster Style
- Colors: Blue, Pink, Purple
- Graphics: Polka Dots, Animals
- Clothing: Shirts, Dresses/Skirts, Leggings
- Climate: Around the House
Most of my requests were met, but I didn't get the graphics I wanted. Instead, five of my six items were floral, another graphic option on the profile. Although I love flowers, I am particular about the style. Polka dots are polka dots, but flower prints run from cartoonish to dainty.
Be SpecificLesson learned? Be explicit about what you really don't want. Going forward, I'll state "no flowers," because my personal line of acceptability is too hazy to explain. I might also indicate that my Style Profile preferences on Style and Graphics outweigh those on Color, Climate and Clothing.
If you’re style-conscious and want to give Wittlebee a try, satisfaction might take a little more direction on your part. After noting the abundance of flowers, I received only one floral item in my next box.
Be FlexibleOn the other hand, flexibility is also key. Had I drawn a hard line about text, I might not have received my favorite item of all: a graphic tee from Lately Lily. The brand name is at the bottom, the train cars say “Peru Rail,” and I love it all.
For me, half the allure of Wittlebee is the element of surprise.
