Fashionistas and Friends,
Moved My Fashion Haus outside today to bring you a look at the pieces in my very first Fashom Box. You may have seen some of my blogging buddies sharing Fashom Boxes in their posts recently. Kellyann at This Blonde’s Shopping Bag received some darling pieces – check out that yellow dress! Jill at Doused in Pink recently shared her goodies from Fashom, too. Love the dress she received and the Exquiss Paris printed top. Before we get to my box, let me tell you a bit about Fashom.
What is Fashom?
Fashom is an online styling and fashion service. After seeing some pretty great clothes shared by other bloggers, I was mucho excited when Fashom asked me to collaborate with them! Went directly to their website to learn a little more about how their styling service works. And to fill out a style profile, pay a styling fee (but your first styling session is free!!) and submit a styling request.
The style profile was pretty thorough, asking about my sizes in shirts, pants, dresses, my bra size, shoe size, and the measurements of my waist and hips, along with my weight and height. I was prompted to select my skin tone and hair color, and even upload a photo.
Then I was given photos of outfits to rate…which did I love, which did I dislike. And finally, there were some questions about how much I spend on average for different pieces of clothing. How much for accessories? How much on dresses, etc.
My Stylist Worked Her Magic
About 3-4 days after I completed my style profile, my stylist put together about 7 pieces based on my style profile. I was able to see the pieces she selected through my account with Fashom. From photos of those pieces, I was asked to choose 5 items that Fashom then sent to my home. I chose a pair of skinny jeans, a kimono, a blouse, a tee and a tunic.
Once the box arrived, I was given 3 days to try on the clothes and determine which pieces I wanted to keep. Hard decision because I really liked everything very much. The great discounts offered by Fashom make it even easier to keep everything: 30% off for keeping all 5 items in your box, 25% off for keeping 3 or 4 of the pieces.
APNY Apparel Natural Crepe Kimono…
was the first piece that caught my eye. The colors were a watercolor palette of blues and greens, lavender and light yellow. The fabric was silky and light. And the piece could be worn several different ways. It was cut in a rectangular shape with 2 arm holes but could be worn so that it was open front or even draped across the front and open in the back. One size fits all. It paired perfectly with the…
Just Black Colored Skinny Jeans…
that weren’t black at all. I am not sure how to describe the color. Maybe a watery Caribbean blue-green sea foam. Whatever its name, the color is cool and refreshing for summer. And these babies fit this grandma like a glove! They are a 29 and probably a bit snugger or skinnier than I have been used to wearing. But PC gave them a 2 thumbs up. And the jeans had just enough stretch to keep them very comfortable, while retaining their behind-hugging shape.
For this outfit, I added a light yellow Loft Outlet tee from my closet and some metallic sandals. I rediscovered a pair of chandelier earrings my daughter Brennyn had given me years ago that were a great bit of bling to complete this outfit.
Did a sloppy tuck…emphasis on sloppy…while standing out in the yard. Forgot I didn’t have on a belt. But that’s kinda the way I roll.
I love this outfit. Can you tell? It makes me happy. I feel confident and put together. Thank you, Fashom. These pieces are keepers.
Freesia Paris Printed Top…
is the third piece I kept. I think the print caught my eye first. Not sure why, but I rarely wear red. Not intentional because I think it might be one of the colors I wear best.
This floral print is happy and sweet and has so many great colors. Will be able to wear this with all kinds of options. Paired it with Loft ankle length black pants. But wouldn’t it be cute with blue or yellow? With a cardi? And denim jacket?
Dug up an old Old Navy statement necklace that had both shades of blue and the pop of yellow in the print of this shirt. I like the high-low hemline and glad that the sleeves have roll tabs so I can wear them up or down.
This next photo is kind of an up-the-nose shot but I wanted you to see this print up close. Cheerful, fun, don’t you think?
That really is a dreadful pic! I didn’t realize how bad until now. Just focus on the shirt!! Oh, and glance up just long enough to see that I put my false eyelashes on again. Liked wearing them for my Stepping Outside My Comfort Zone pin-up photo shoot. Didn’t have any glue, though, so they are hanging on by a promise.
This blouse was a keeper.
In a perfect world, where PC isn’t about to lose his job, I probably would have kept everything in my Fashom Box. But I am trying to be good, trying to keep my spending in check. The APNY Aztec Tunic Top and the Renee C. Floral Lace Top were very pretty. And the fit was great, too. The tunic was semi-sheer and I would probably have needed to wear a cami underneath. But I can’t wear a cami without a bra, so that would have been 3 layers.
The floral lace top was a big temptation. The lace panels made this top more than just another tee. The pink color was more like a blush. So feminine. I kind of wish I had kept this because it sure would have made a great date night top with black skinny jeans and my moto jacket. PC liked this piece better than the kimono. Tough, tough, tough to send it back.
Fashom was founded in April 2015 by Mitali Saxena.
FASHOM began as a mobile social platform celebrating the everyday self-expression and unedited unique styles of real people—the everywoman and everyman—around the world.
Sharing and exploring global fashion by real people—on filters, no photoshop, no retouching, FASHOM now reaches over 100,000 fashion-savvy users world wide.
In December of 2017, FASHOM set out on a new path to bring personal styling services to its community.
The mission was simple: help users find fashionable pieces that fit their tastes, budget, and lifestyle.
And now, Fashom is donating $1 for each box sold to Second Chance Rescue, whose mission is to reduce animal overpopulation in shelters, rescue and rehabilitate critically injured and neglected animals, and connect the community to services that enable animals to remain in their homes. No wonder wearing these clothes felt so good!
This was such a pleasant experience. All of the clothing was very well made, reasonably priced, unique. I wholeheartedly recommend Fashom and will be signing up for another box in the near future.
Have you tried online style boxes before? If so, what has your experience been? Would love to know about your experiences. And would like to invite you to try Fashom. And then let me know what you think. I feel certain you will be as pleased with this service and their clothing as I am.
Thank you, my fashionable friends, for stopping by.
Hugs and kisses,
