PLVSH Style Subscription Box Review – September 2016

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

plvsh-september-2016-box

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.

PLVSH sent this info sheet with details on each item and a brief explanation of why each piece was chosen for me. I really like knowing that everything was hand selected for me!

Kiyonna Wrap Dress – Cost to keep $98

The color of this dress is amazing. I love it! But, as I mentioned in another review, I don’t think I have the assets required to wear Kiyonna. I’m undecided on this one.

Kiyonna Crossover Top – Cost to keep $64

I feel exactly the same way about this top, also by Kiyonna. I absolutely love the color, and the draping effect is gorgeous! I might like this top even more than the dress.

NYDJ Geometric Print Pants – Cost to keep $108

These pants are cute, but they’re just too big and too long. Plus I think they’re a bit pricey. I think I will send these back.

Nic + Zoe 4 Way Lightweight Cardigan – Cost to keep $108

I love this cardigan! It is nice and lightweight, plus it’s the perfect length. I also really like the charcoal color, it’s so versatile.

Nic + Zoe Perfect Tank in Milk White – Cost to keep $48

This is a really nice tank top and a great layering piece. It’s also a nice sturdy cotton. I just don’t think I need it right now.

Verdict: This month’s package from PLVSH Style was great, as usual! I definitely love the cardigan, but I’m not sure about the Kiyonna pieces. I think PLVSH is a really great service for women who are too busy to shop, or even just those who prefer to try on clothes from the comfort of their own home! Their pieces tend to be a bit pricey, but they always send pieces that are current and high quality. I’m a big fan of PLVSH!

  1. I’m confused by all of the comments re price. The point of spending more on good quality clothes is that you don’t have to replace them as often. Anyway, that’s how I feel, anyway ?. You look gorgeous as always, Anna!

    • I agree!

  2. The Kiyonna pieces are beautiful, but if you have doubts, you won’t reach for them in your closet. That said, if you want to keep them, there are fabulous push-up bras out there! Lane Bryant makes great ones. I think the cardigan has a great shape and fits nicely, keep it!

  3. Instead of buying their over priced clothing I think this sub is perfect for deciding what styles and colors work best for you. Then head out to less expensive discount department store for actual shopping. And then maybe buy an item from the sub that is just too perfect to pass on.

  4. your review is great. I think the items are way over priced and you could get them at a tj maxx for less than half these prices! these items are not anything spectacular! really like the blue dress on you 🙂

  5. Blue is your color!!!! I think you look great in that dress but it doesn’t look like a $100 dress to me. I think the pieces in this sub are ridiculously overpriced.

  6. A good cardigan is so useful. I know it’s pricey but if you have room in your budget…buy that cardigan!!!

    • no way! go to a store, and you could buy it for less than 40 bucks! go to a thrift store and you could buy it for less than 10 with tags on it…..

  7. The poll is fun! I kept wishing there was an option to vote “looks great but not for that price.”

  8. The polls and white tank top pic aren’t loading for me, but that blue dress looks great on you! I really like the red top on you too!

    • Thanks Megan!

  9. You need to keep the blue dress, it is perfect on you. Not to be crude, but you can buy some more assets if you feel it’s necessary, lol.

    • Lol tpop! You are too funny!

  10. You look great as usual ! I wish you knew how great you look in that dress !!!!! Just like the similar dress not so long ago. (Different sub) You do have what it takes for those dresses , I swear , I don’t give compliments I don’t mean, I am not mean to people, I just don’t say anything if I don’t have anything nice to say . (Thanks Mom for that basic lesson ?) anyway , as I suggested before maybe wear the dress at home for date night to see if you can get comfortable in it ? I know it is senseless to keep it if you won’t wear it , I just wish you would darnit, you can rock it !!! As far as price for cardigan, I am willing to pay for quality clothing that fits well. I think that it is very flattering on you so I would spend the money. I have both high end and low end pieces in my wardrobe. I spend more on timeless pieces because hopefully they are quality and will last ,and if I am purchasing something more trendy I tend to spend less . That is just my take on clothing prices ? Love your reviews and great photos ! Keep them coming please, I need new clothes and I am trying to decide on new clothing subs!

    • Thanks Nicole! I think we are definitely on the same page. 🙂

  11. Agree…that dress looks great on you!

    • Thanks Kari!

  12. I loved the red top and blue dress also! I think my problem here is, the price point for basic pieces. I do understand quality pieces, but I think I’d struggle paying $108 for a lightweight cardigan or $50 for a tank lol they both looked great but I thought, $160 for a tank and cardigan…
    And trust me, both are staples in my closet…clearly not to this standard though ?
    Love your reviews!!!!!

    • Thanks for your feedback, TJ. I understand, esp with the tank. I’m not sure why but I looooveeee the cardigan… 🙂

  13. I love the Kiyonna pieces on you!! They are gorgeous and look great on you!!
    I would return everything else – the pants are weird and the other top and cardigan are too pricey for what they are imo.

    • Thank you Courtney! Even the cardigan? lol Still deciding…

  14. You look stunning in those bright, crisp colors!! You should DEFINITELY keep the dress and top. I think they are some of the most flattering items I seen you model!

    • Wow! Thank you Beth!

  15. You look fabulous in that dress! That is definitely a keeper.

    • agree!

      • Thanks y’all!

  16. Wow you look amazing in the blue dress!! I loved every thing but the pants.

    • Thank you Rosa!
