Trying Fashom for the First Time

Hi friends and happy Monday! Today I’m excited to share with you a new subscription service. Chances are by now you’ve already heard of it, but I’m trying Fashom for the first time. Fashom is really making the rounds through a lot of my blogging buddies.

I’ve been intrigued with the idea of a subscription service for quite a while, but being the #controlfreak I am, I just wasn’t sure it would be for me. There are quite a few different option out there like Stitch Fix and Trunk Club, but Fashom seems to be a little more pocket book friendly.

Disclaimer: I was given credit to purchase items in return for this post, but all opinions are my own. Y’all know I’m a straight shooter😉

I’m sure with all of these services you fill out a profile. I was surprised with just how thorough Fashom’s was. They asked everything from sizes you wear (as you’d expect) to hair, skin, eye color and measurements. They check your Pinterest boards and Instagram if you have it, and if you’re a blogger, they check that too to get a feel for your style. They really want to get this right.

Here’s the part I really like. You actually get to approve and pick what is sent to you in your box. Your stylist picks 8 pieces she thinks you’d like and sends them in an email for you to pick 5 for shipment. If you don’t like any of them….send them back to the drawing board. Total transparency here friends, first time out of the gate, there was only one piece I was remotely interested in, so I asked for more options. I also gave even more details about my preferences such as necklines, fabrics and even brands.

I received this adorable shift dress. There are patch pockets on the front, but you can’t even tell in the pictures. It was fully lined and I loved the cut of the neckline. The only thing I wasn’t crazy about was the fabric. I am not a fan of rayon/polyesters and that’s what this was made of.
Verdict: Returned

Fashom THML Top - Coast to Coast

This top was one of the pieces I was most excited about. I love the color, the neckline, the embroidery and of course the fringed detail on the bottom. It would have been and easy 100 except it was (whomp-whomp) polyester. I was on the bubble of letting that slide, but ultimately just couldn’t deal.
Verdict: Returned

I’ve never made it a secret that I am not a t-shirt kind of gal. Having said that, this one almost made the cut. The color is dynamite and of course the v-neck is my fav. It has the cutest little gold pineapples, a cuffed sleeve and curved hem. The fabric was nice and thick, but I just didn’t think I’d wear it more than once or twice and I’m trying to purchase things that really make my heart sing. This one just made it hum. HA!
Verdict: Returned

Fashom THML Shift Dress - Coast to Coast

DING! DING! DING! We have a WINNER!!!! This little dress checked all the boxes. Cotton? Yes thank you. Lined? You bet. Adorable details? You know it. Halter neckline? Yes ma’am, and we all know I’m a huge fan of that.
Verdict: Kept

Lastly was a cute little cami style top. Loved the colors. Burgundy and rust. Adjustable straps are always a win in my book and the fabric even though it was rayon felt more like a cotton. I’ve got quite a collection of similar tops and just didn’t need another. BTW…this was the one item that was sent in my first email that I approved.
Verdict: Returned

You can access Fashom both online or through an app on your phone. There is a $15 styling fee that is applied when you submit your request to be styled that will be applied toward the purchase of any items.

Here’s how it works:

  • FILL OUT YOUR STYLE PROFILE & SUBMIT A STYLING REQUEST
  • Tell us about your style, size & price preferences & then submit your request to be styled. You’ll see a styling preview within 2-3 business days.
  • REVIEW YOUR SELECTED ITEMS & PICK WHAT SHIPS
  • Your stylist will send you items to review. You pick 5 pieces to be shipped to your doorstep within 2 days. It’s free shipping & returns. No subscription required. If no items are picked within 2 days, your FASHOM stylist will send you their choice of 5 pieces.
  • KEEP WHAT YOU LOVE & SEND BACK THE REST
  • Try on your hand-selected items & keep what you love! We send you a prepaid envelope for easy returns. You have 3 days to try ‘em on. Only pay for what you keep! Give us a review and a feedback so the stylist can help you better next time.

Fashom donates $1 to Second Chance Rescue NYC for each box sold. This organization strongly aligns with FASHOM’S mission to offer clothing and apparel made with sustainable vegan materials only. 

Use my referral code HERE to try Fashom for yourself. You’ll receive $10 credit and so will I, then you’ll also have your own code to share with friends.

I’m going to try again, but wait a few weeks until I get back from traveling and it’s a little closer to fall. What do you think? Are you going to try Fashom for the first time?
