Fashom’s online concept: Try before you buy
When you live in a rural area the next mall may be more than an hour drive away. Thus, clothes shopping becomes a major hassle. Sure, there are online stores just a mouse click away, but many women want to try several pieces on before making a decision what to buy. Not everything that looks awesome on the screen, is your style, is a fit according to the measures in the size chart looks actually flattering when you put it on.
In a store, you browse (which is time consuming), take a couple of pieces you like into the fitting room. Then you buy what is the most flattering. Here is where Fashom comes in. Not only do they the work of separating out what pieces may be of interest for you accoding to your style profile and request of pieces (e.g. fall style). They also send the pieces you select from their suggestions to you to try out. How great is that? A perfect time saver for all of us who live somewhere in the middle of nowhere (and all urban fashionistas who have no time to do the time consuming search at the mall or even hate browsing stores for clothes).
You only pay for what you keep. Get a discount if you keep three pices or more. What isn’t flattering or you don’t like or whatever, you just send back. Love this concept.
My second Fashom box
The photo below shows what I picked from the stylist’s suggestion. I was looking for fall clothes. Fall is already knocking at the door up here in Interior Alaska. It’s windy and notably cooler than in July.
A tailored floral dress is great for fall
This tailored dress is made in the USA. It has a thin scuba-like fabric in black with a pink, burgundy, gray floral print on black. It can be worn now just as is, but as temperatures drop with a layering top underneath or a cardigan. It also will work with black tights and boots later in autumn. Here I styled the dress like a southern belle autumn church outfit. I got a lot of compliment when wearing this beauty. It’s a keeper.
Navy faux wrap dress
The print of this dress screams autmn. It’s also very special. While it also has short sleeves, it can be worn with a layering top underneath or a cardigan. The many colors of the print make the options very versatile. Adding navy tights when it gets cold is a no brainer. Love this dress. It’s also made in the USA.
I picked this skirt from the suggestions as I love pips (it’s an eternal classic pattern) and pencil skirts. The skirt looks great. However, it’s a print and not weaved. Thus, it’s not so me, but it looks awesome, right?
This skirt is very unique. Layered printed floral mesh with a polka dot waist band. On screen, it looked like it would go well with my orange, red, brown and black long-sleeve as well as with a couple of my short cashmere sweaters. however, the colors of my pieces were not great match with those of the skirt. Too bad. I really love it. But that’s what the try on concept is for. It’s even better than trying on at a store. You can directly compare the colors of the piece with what you already own.
Black white Moon print dress
This dress is super cute. May be too cute for a woman my age? Who knows? My younger me would have bought it despite it’s a bit too large. However, today I don’t feel comfortable anymore wearing it. Sure, I could alter it. But I don’t have much experience altering jersey pieces. Thus, I passed on this cute dress. 🙁
