My First Styling Box: Fashom Review & Giveaway

My First Styling Box: Fashom Review & Giveaway

Happy 4th of July everyone! I hope you all have a safe and relaxing day!! We are spending it at the pool as a family. I wanted to pop in and share the recent Fashom styling box I received last week. There are so many styling box options out there to choose from. It's nice if you want to try new things or don't have time to shop for yourself. They make great options if you don't live in or near a location that gives you options to shop at a brick and mortar store, too. But I've actually never tried a styling box! I think I must have control issues and like to search for and know exactly what I am purchasing and for how much. But that means I might be missing out on things that a stylist can see would be flattering on me or suit my lifestyle. So when Fashom reached out to me I was intrigued to say the least. I really try to shop on a budget and after looking at their price points I was really pleased. Not to mention there are nice discounts for purchasing multiple options. If I had purchased all of these items it would have only been $152.60. You get a 30% discount for purchasing the entire box and 25% discount for purchasing 3 or 4 items. So here is a breakdown of what I was sent!

M&G Monogram Paris Open Back Top $36
My First Styling Box: Fashom Review & Giveaway
This top was really cute! I'm wearing a size medium and probably could have sized down, but tying the back a little tight makes it fit well. The back lace and tie detail are really cute and could show off a fun bralette. For $36, I thought this top was priced right. But I do have 3 other pink floral sleeveless tops in my closet so I ultimately passed on this one. Verdict: Returned

Andree By Unit: High Neck Embroidered Blouse $54
My First Styling Box: Fashom Review & Giveaway
This kelly green top is very lightweight and so pretty in person. I'm wearing a size small for reference and I think it fit TTS. It's made of a breathable material, but not sheer. It was the most expensive in the box, but my favorite item. I don't have any tops in this pretty shade. So this one ended up staying with me. Verdict: Kept

Moci by Purple Rain Floral Fit and Flare Dress $46
My First Styling Box: Fashom Review & Giveaway
Initially I really liked this dress online, but in person it was a little more tropical of a print than I normally go for. That said, it was so flattering! It is made of a stretchy, breathable material that was very comfortable to wear. It also is more fitted to the chest, but then flows out so when you eat to much ice cream (guilty). I'm wearing a size small for reference and it fits TTS. Although the print was not my favorite, I still liked that colors a lot. And the fit was what had me with this so it stayed with me. Verdict: Kept 

Gilli Wrap Chiffon Floral Print Dress $38
My First Styling Box: Fashom Review & Giveaway
I know how many bloggers and stylists tote the pros of wrap dresses, I just never found them to be very flattering on me. I have a rectangular shape and not much waist definition or curves. Anything that emphasizes the waist or is fit and flare to show off a smaller waist doesn't really do much for me. I find sheath type dresses to look better. Still, I found the short sleeve style and ruffles at the chest to be really fun! The small floral print and soft green background also caught my eye. This is a classic style I can see myself wearing for years and while I don't think it is the most flattering, I also don't think it is unflattering. So I decided to give the wrap dress a chance in my closet! I'm wearing a size medium and would say it fits slightly on the smaller size, but not an entire size smaller. Verdict: Kept

Blue Pepper Surplice Stripe Jumpsuit $44
My First Styling Box: Fashom Review & Giveaway
I love me some jumpsuits! This striped one is quite a bit more bold than I typically go for, but I wanted to push myself out of my comfort zone and try something new. You never know! The horizontal stripes and colors kind of give a little bit of a 70s vibe. I'm wearing a size small, and think it fits TTS. It felt comfortable on, but the large sleeves and wide legs made me look wide all over. Ultimately between the fit and the colors this one ended up going back. Verdict: Returned

Overall, I kept 3 pieces. Two dresses and one top stayed with me and I paid $103.50 for them all. The other two pieces went back. I'm pretty happy with my experience and open to trying it again. These are all pieces that I probably wouldn't have tried for myself and it was a nice push to get a little out of my comfort zone. My experience with Fashom was good. During the process I asked the stylist for more choices initially and needed a box extension. Both times communication was quick and I had a positive experience with them.
