It is subscription box review time again. I am back with a second Nstyle Box from the fabulous blogger At Home With Nikki. This is the box for February and I guess you could say it is a “favorite color” theme, take a peek…
I am so excited to share this post. Stitch Fix, now offers plus-size clothes in sizes 14W-24W and 1X-3X. If you have not heard about Stitch Fix, it is a wardrobe styling service. You tell your stylist what you like by answering a series of style questions and they handpick clothes and accessories for you and then send you a box of goodies. My box had 5 items – top, dress, jeans, cardigan, and a necklace. Checkout my unboxing and styling…
This first box was pretty nice. The price range for the items was $50 to $100 dollars and the quality was excellent. But I have to say, I thought it was a bit pricey, for example, the jeans were $78 which is above the price I generally pay for jeans. The top was $44 and the necklace was $34. Now, there were two more items in the box, a maxi dress priced at $78 and a cardigan at $48. Both were good but not great. The shape of the cardigan was not attractive on me and the maxi was way too long and showed my arms – not my best feature.
Although I loved this outfit, I opted to return this fix which is super easy with a prepaid envelope provided.
Overall, on the pretty scale, I would say my first fix was Pretty Awesome. The items I liked were on point with my lifestyle – casual and comfy. But the prices were a bit more than I would want to pay. I scheduled a second fix because I am so thrilled the good folks at Stitch Fix value the plus size shopper. I cannot wait to share my next fix with y’all. You can try Stitch Fix and let me know what you think.
Has anyone tried Stitch Fix?
Linking with these lovely bloggers.
I am so excited about this post. If you’ve been in the blogosphere for 5 minutes, then you have most likely seen an eShakti Product Review. I have seen them and wondered about this company. Soooo when I checked my Inbox and saw the email from eShakti offering me a product to review, I was ready to shop for something special!
eShakti is an India based international fashion design company that makes custom clothing for women size 0 through 36. They sell a very wide range of clothing including dresses (seems to be the most popular item), tops, jackets, skirts and a section for wedding attire. Jane, the representative was awesome. She sent a link to over 200 products. I mentioned wanting to rock more dresses in my OOTDs, so I selected:
Graphic floral embroidery split neck dress with inset waist and textured banding in a charming poplin accentuating the retro A-line style.
Slips on over head; partial side zip closure.
Sleeveless, bra strap keeps.
Bust darts to shape.
Wide box-pleat skirt.
Side seam pockets.
Cotton, woven poplin, pre-shrunk and bio-finished, light crisp feel, no stretch, midweight.
I provided my measurements to ensure a good fit. Some of the other features of this dress are the pretty floral print, detailed embroidery, pockets-love pockets, and a nice lining! I also selected the sleeve type and hem length. The fit is pretty good. I think I over measured because I didn’t want the dress to be too snug.
I like this dress a lot and was pleased with the quality of the fabric and the construction of the garment. It’s very lady-like and quite comfortable. The neck and waist detail are the stars of this dress. The normal price point is $79.95 which is very reasonable for a custom-made dress. The delivery time was very quick around 7 days. I really don’t have any issues with this dress or ordering process. One suggestion, make your measurements very precise for the best fit.
