PLVSH Style Subscription Box Review – February 2016
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.)
The Subscription Box: PLVSH Style
The Cost: $25 styling fee, which is credited toward your purchase of any items in the box
The Products: 5 plus-size clothing items selected for you based on your Style Profile
Ships to: US
Ships via: FedEx, and any items you wish to return must also be returned to a FedEx location
IMPORTANT: You must use a credit card (not debit) with this service, and the card must allow a pre-authorization of a charge up to $500.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
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!
