unboxing // nadine west #1


I recently signed up for Nadine West, a budget-friendly fashion subscription box. It's set up similar to other fashion shopping boxes - they send you some items, you only keep and pay for what you love, and send back the rest in the same envelope with the enclosed shipping label.

The best part is you can choose your frequency to receive boxes, either every two weeks or every four, and you only pay $9.78 for shipping, which is then applied to anything you do end up keeping. Your package is styled to things that you input into your profile, and you can choose things you don't want and even colors you don't wear (for instance - I stated I don't wear orange). Each item is under $35, but most average about $18.

My first box I got to try for free with the code NADINE, which deducted the initial shipping cost, and I even got a $3.00 discount if I kept anything. I chose to receive a package every four weeks to beef up my work and workout wardrobe a bit before I go full time at the office and start regularly going to the gym. I received six total items: one top, two bottoms, and three jewelry items.
Here are the clothing pieces I received. The Ballet Floral leggings ($30.99) had really cute mesh panels on the backs of the calves, but the pinkish floral print just wasn't me. Had these been black I would've been all over them, but these went back. The Not Your Gramma's Cami ($18.99) was a stretchy material and had cute detailing across the chest without being too low cut, so I'm keeping this one to go under cardigans this fall. The Bow Tied ($19.49) shorts were another thing I wanted to love, but I just can't make shorts like this work for my body type. I loved the color, but these went back.
First I'll say that all of the jewelry went back. These were super cute pieces, but they don't fit my current style. The Knot Me ($14.99) bracelet was cute, but I would've preferred it in gold. The Beneath My Wings ($14.99) earrings are just something I'd never wear, and the Starlight Starbright ($26.99) necklace was adorable, but was too similar to a starfish and I'm a mountains-not-beach kind of gal.

I wasn't disappointed with the selections in my first box as they're still feeling out my style and the items were really cute. I'm excited to see how they take my feedback and put together my next box!
