PLVSH Style Subscription Box Review – February 2016

This post may contain referral/affiliate links. Read the full disclosure.

PLVSH Style is a subscription styling service for plus-size women. They describe themselves as “Concierge Styling, Exclusively for Women Sizes 14+.” I love this type of box! When I signed up, I had to fill out a pretty in-depth questionnaire regarding my size, style preferences, and lifestyle in order for them to select pieces that are just right for me. Selections for each subscriber will (and should) vary.

My Subscription Addiction paid for this subscription. (Check out our review process post to learn more about how we review boxes.)

My package came with a pretty detailed list of everything PLVSH Style sent me, with costs to keep the items and explanations of why they chose each item for me. I feel that a lot of thought went into the process of selecting each item just for me. I like that!

On the reverse side are some important reminders of their terms and the process for returning the items I don’t wish to keep.

plvsh-feb-dress

BB Dakota Blackberry Twill Relaxed Fit – Cost to keep $65

OK, so this dress wrinkles easily! It wasn’t this wrinked when I pulled it out of the box, but I feel like every time I put it anywhere it gathered more wrinkles. It’s too bad, actually, because I love the color, it looks great on, and I love the style. It’s very simple, but it has a raw edge neckline that gives it that extra something special. This would look sooooo good with some funky jewelry! I just detest ironing, though, so I have to send it back.

plvsh-feb-jeans

NYDJ Burbank Wash Mini Bootcut – Cost to keep $120

Last month I was thrilled to see jeans from NYJD in my box! It was a little weird to see almost the exact same pair again this month, though. I also commented last month that I needed a smaller size, but they sent the same size in petite. I didn’t mean smaller length-wise! Ha! So, these are now too wide and slightly too short. Back they go.

plvsh-feb-pants

DKNY Black Leggings – Cost to keep $89.50

These leggings are super cool and could almost pass as cigarette pants! I love the zipper detail, too. The only problem is that the zippers are exactly where I don’t want to draw attention to my body, so unfortunately these will have to go back, too.

plvsh-feb-blue

Vince Camuto Short Sleeve High Low Blouse – Cost to keep $89

Yes! This blouse is a keeper! I LOVE this color for spring. I’m not usually a fan of hi-low tops, but the waist seaming in the back somehow makes this super flattering on me!

plvsh-feb-striped

Vince Camuto Stripe Layered Front Blouse – Cost to keep $99

This blouse was also flattering and it’s definitely a quality piece. Unfortunately the print is not my style, so I need to send this back.

Verdict: The snafu with the jeans aside, I think PLVSH is a wonderful service, and I love my packages from them. Their prices are a little steep, but the pieces are quality. Their service is concierge styling, and it’s really designed for women who are too busy to spend much time shopping, but need stylish / high-end apparel that fits well and looks fabulous. I think they really do a great job accomplishing that goal!

What do you think of PLVSH Style?

  1. Anna two real interesting and helpful reviews from you today, thanks! I think for the prices they charge on this service (though yes, quality is important!) and the seemingly personal nature of the items they present, the jeans mess is not a very good indicator of individualization and except for the one piece, the rest were a big miss on their part. Had they matched you with at least a couple of good, solid items I would say they were fairly successful but I think you should give them strong feedback about why you did not keep those items, and they should do a better job next time! I would not subscribe at this point until they can show true customization.
