Have you ever taken a gaggle of fussy kids into a clothing store dressing room? If so, then you know it’s pretty much like getting a root canal with no laughing gas or even a plastic toy after. In one word, it’s misery.
That’s why I try to avoid it at all costs. But once in a while, mama likes new clothes. So I’m so glad I found a great alternative: Fashom.
Fashom ships me several styles to try on and choose from in my own home. And they’re all handpicked by my personal stylist. Yep, I have a stylist. I’m that important, y’all.
Sounds cool, right? Here’s how it works and what I love about it.
I was given a complimentary credit in order to purchase some items from Fashom so I could share my experience with you. All opinions are authentic and my own.
You start by filling out a style quiz about what you like, your sizes, and what types of pieces you’re looking for.
There’s a $15 styling fee, and that $15 is applied as a credit when you purchase an item. But the styling session is always free on your first box!
What I really like: Not only did I get to add feedback about what I like, but also what I don’t like. I was also able to leave notes about the fact that I live in a hot climate so I needed pieces that were for warm weather throughout the year. All of this made it the most thorough style quiz I’ve ever taken.
Over the next few days, a stylist pours over your style quiz. They search for several items that they think will be perfect for you from their selection of clothes that are ethically sourced from around the world.
2-3 days later, you’ll get an email when they’re done so you can go on the website to see the pieces they picked out for you.
Out of that selection, you get to pick five items to be shipped to you. You’ll need to do this within 48 hours.
What I really like: I love that you get to preview the items before they send them to you. That way you can avoid getting stuff you know you won’t like.
The five items you pick are shipped to you, always for free. The website indicates that it could take 10-12 days to get your package, but I got mine in less than a week.
Then the fun part! You get to have your own little fashion show in your home. No small dressing rooms with bad lighting and screaming, fighting kids. Just you, maybe a glass of wine, and your personal mirror.
Why I loved my try-on session: So many things...
- First of all, all the sizes were spot on.
- They were the exact type of clothes I indicated I wanted in my style quiz. Lots of the pieces were comfy and cool and they added in a few really fun, flirty pieces too.
- I discovered a few things I loved, that I never would have picked out for myself. Like this flowy pink palm leaf top that you can wear a couple of different ways. It’s my new favorite!
After you decide what you want to keep, you indicate it on the website and pay for it. Then ship the rest back inside the shipping bag they provide for you, always for free. You need to do this within three days of receiving your package.
The more you keep, the more discount you get. If you decide to keep all five pieces, you’ll get 30% off and if you keep 3 or 4 pieces, you’ll get 25% off.
And for each box, Fashom donates $1 to Second Chance Rescue NYC.
And that’s it! Now you can enjoy your new Fashom finds! And there’s no subscription.
