I’m excited to share my October FASHOM unboxing video and blog post! It’s my first time trying out this personal styling box and I can’t wait to see what fits!

The last thing I want to do is wrangle my kiddos in a dressing room while I try on clothes. That’s why I like to try out fashon boxes.
This week, I tried out FASHOM, an affordable personal styling service.
What sets the FASHOM box apart from other clothing subscription boxes is that it’s NOT a subscription box. You don’t have to commit to receiving them every month. Just pay as you go.
They offer high quality, budget-friendly clothing that is exclusively vegan. And the company is women-led.
I didn’t know much about FASHOM, so I did some research before I signed up. I always think it’s important to read reviews and find out exactly what to expect!
What You Need to Know about your FASHOM Box
Fashom is a wallet-friendly styling platform that believes that promotes body confidence in everyday women.
YOU KNOW WHAT’S IN YOUR BOX
Your personal stylist will curate about 9 items for you and you pick the 5 you’d like shipped to your house. I love this!
THERE’S A DISCOUNT
Instead of only offering a discount if you buy the whole box, FASHOM will give you 25% off if you buy 3-4 items. And if you keep your whole box, you get a 30% discount.
The average cost of an items is somewhere between $35-$50.
YOUR FIRST STYLING SESSION IS FREE
I love that you can try it risk-free! And if you move forward, the styling fee is just $15 and that goes toward your purchase.
PLUS, you can schedule a private video chat with the FASHOM styling team to get a better understanding of your style.
IT’S NOT A SUBSCRIPTION BOX
You don’t have to commit to getting a box every month or quarter. You can request them any time you want.
THEY GIVE BACK
For every box sold, FASHOM donates $1 to Second Chance Rescue NYC.
How to Use FASHOM
FASHOM is super easy to use. First, fill out their style profile on their website or app. This covers sizing, budget, and style preferences. Do you like casual outfits or are you more dressy? Need a date night look or an office wardrobe?
Your personal stylist will get back to you within 3 business days with 9 garments she has personally picked for you.
If you don’t like this selection, you can let you stylist know and you will get another round of looks.
Choose the 5 items you’d like shipped to your house.
It will say that it will take 12-14 days to arrive, but mine arrived within 3 days.
You will need to give them your credit card info the first time you use FASHOM and they do a $50 credit card hold. This hold isn’t permanent and you’ll get it back once you receive your box.
If you sign up for FASHOM with my referral link, we each get $10
What Was Inside my FASHOM Box?
I was really excited to get my FASHOM box in the mail! I told my stylist I was looking for Fall items to refresh my wardrobe.
DREAMERS | LONG CARDIGAN
Living in Seattle, I’m always wearing layers. One of my favorite layering pieces are long cardigans. You can wear them on their own or put a coat over them.
Retail Price: $54
What I liked about this Long Cardigan
It’s OMG so soft! I couldn’t stop petting it because it was so snuggly soft! That’s exactly the type of cardigan I like to wear around the house or out and about.
The color is neutral so I can wear it with a lot of different tops and I can dress it up or down.
What I didn’t like about this Long Cardigan
I liked EVERYTHING about it!
FINAL VERDICT: Keep
BON AMI | ALANA FLORAL TOP
I’m trying to add in a few more “professional” pieces into my wardrobe. I’ve been going to a lot more networking events and conferences and I’m always scrambling to find items to wear.
Retail Price: $38
What I liked about this Alana Floral Top
I like the feel of the fabric. It lays really nicely and I can easily put a camisole underneath for added warmth.
I also like the autumn coloring of the floral print.
What I didn’t like about this Alana Floral Top
This shirt is boxier than I usually wear. It definitely looks better under a cardigan or blazer.
FINAL VERDICT: Keep
BON AMI| KATERINA FLORAL TIE WAIST TOP
I’m also on the hunt for cute date night tops. I like shirts that are unique in some way and that are great stand-alone pieces.
Retail Price: $42
What I liked about this Katerina Floral Tie Waist Top
I love that it’s adjustable, so I can get a nice, fitted look around my waist. It’s also a very flattering top. And the color is perfect for the holiday season.
What I didn’t like about this Katerina Floral Tie Waist Top
I can’t put my finger on it, but I just wasn’t drawn to this top. I think it looked good when I tried it on, but it just didn’t “wow” me.
FINAL VERDICT: Return
CHRIS & CAROL | MIXED PRINT BASEBALL TEE
I’m a super casual type of Mom, so I’m all about the t-shirt and jeans look. I tend to go for neutral colors or good layering pieces.
Retail Price: $39
What I liked about this Mixed Print Baseball Tee
It’s so insanely soft and comfortable!
What I didn’t like about this Mixed Print Baseball Tee
I wasn’t a fan of the floral print and I’m not into the stripes/floral mix.
In hindsight, I should have let my stylist know when I saw it in the preview so she could have picked a different item for me.
FINAL VERDICT: Return
JUST USA | SKINNY JEANS WITH HEM BITE
I can never have enough jeans. I’m always out and about with my kids and jeans are a wardrobe staple for me.
I’m all about the distressed jeans and changing up my look without giving up the comfort of jeans.
Retail Price: $53
What I liked about these Skinny Jeans with Hem Bite
I’m obsessed with the hem detail (and the name Hem Bite!)
And I’m so excited that they fit me in the waist! I have the hardest time finding jeans that fit me correctly and I’m impressed FASHOM got it right on the first try!
I also don’t own any high waisted jeans, so I think these will be a good addition to my Fall wardrobe.
What I didn’t like about these Skinny Jeans with Hem Bite
Because they are high waisted, there is a bit of a pouch when I sit down. I think that’s just what would happen with any high waisted jean, though.
FINAL VERDICT: Keep
Overall, I’d say my first FASHOM Unboxing was successful!
My stylist Elena did a great job selecting a variety of items for me to choose from. Everything fit surprisingly well
These are super cute Fall items that would fit into anyone’s wardrobe easily.
I can’t wait to wear my “hem bite” jeans and super soft cardigan as we head out on some fall adventures here in the Pacific Northwest!
