I was given a credit to Fashom in exchange for my honest review. All opinons are mine alone, and I only share products and services that I use and love. Thank you for supporting the brands that support my blog!
Hi, friends! Today, I’m back with a new-to-me style box and a giveaway for you!! Fashom contacted me about trying their style service and hosting a giveaway* for my readers. I know how much you all love giveaways, so I thought it’d be a great fit. All of the rules for the Fashom style box giveaway are listed at the bottom of this post. It is only open for a week, so make sure to request your style session soon.
Fashom is a little different than other styling services I’ve tried in the past. Here are a few ways that make them stand out:
- YOU pick what ships to you; you are previewed choices from your personal stylist and choose which items you want to try on at home.
- You will receive a 25% discount if you keep at least 3 items, and a 30% discount if you decide to keep all 5.
- The prices are very budget-friendly that average out to about $35.
- There is no subscription fee & your first styling session is on them. After that, the styling fee is only $15, which is applied as a credit if you keep something from your order.
The most resounding feedback I get from my style content is that you want more affordable options. I hear that!! I love finding affordable pieces as well, so I’m diving in to give you a review of Fashom.
Signing up is so easy. You create your account, answer questions about your style preferences and size, and then you request a box. The process was very simple and straight forward.
When your stylist selects pieces for you, you are sent an email letting you now it’s time to select your pieces. You are sent to a link that has pictures and information about the items, and you either accept or reject them. You can accept five pieces.
When your box arrives, it’s time to try them all on and decide what to keep. Your styling fee (if this is not your first box) gets applied to your purchased items. When you’re done, you keep what you want and send back what you don’t. It’s super simply! Here are items that I was sent in my first box:
This first top is perfect for work. It’s blue and white striped with functioning buttons. The arms have grommets, ties, and ruffle detailing. That sounds like a lot, but adds a lot of interest to an otherwise simple top. The fit was a not right for me. It fit at the top but pulls at my hips. Sadly, this is going back.
This came at the perfect time. It’s been so hot lately! This maxi dress is lined and has a red, white, and black pattern. This isn’t a petite size, bu tit’s actually the right length for me. I am very happy with the fit! What do you think? Should I keep this one?
This is also a great work option. This is a a floral print button down top. It’s long sleeved, which I don’t care for. However, I’ve rolled them up and I like it that way. The material was a scratchy and made of polyester. Generally, I try to avoid polyester. I know I have a few pieces that I love in my closet that are made with polyester, but it generally tends to be a blend. I am sending this one back.
Next up, I put these two items together in an outfit. This top is super soft, although it does have long sleeves. I just am not a fan of long sleeves, because are almost always too long for me. You can’t tell in the picture, but the sleeves actually reached towards the end of my thumbs. The material is so soft, the sleeves won’t stay rolled up. So, that’s not an option. I really love the color, so I’m torn on this one. What do you think?
These pants are reminiscent of ones I bought years ago and completely wore out. I wouldn’t have chosen this pattern for myself, as I generally avoid patterns on my bottom half. Should I mix it up a bit and keep these pants? I’d love to hear your opinion!
Overall, it was fun to try a new style service. I will add my feedback to my account to let my stylist know what I liked and what I didn’t. There are a couple questions that pertain to the entire box. I want to know if they offer any clothing in more natural fabrics. My items were mostly polyester, and it’s a fabric type I try to shy away from. Their ethos is to offer affordable, vegan options which is really great and falls in line with my cruelty free beauty routine. My other question is where their products are made. Some of the labels did not have a country of origin, so I will ask them if they have any information regarding that.
My honest opinion is that this a great, affordable option for anyone looking for budget friendly options. You have a lot of opportunities to give your stylist feedback both before and after you receive your box. Like all style boxes, there is a learning curve for the stylist. They don’t know you, and you don’t know them. It might take a box or two until they nail your style
