Nadine West Subscription Box Review + Coupon – November 2017
Nadine West is a subscription styling service for women sizes small to 3X. Subscribers fill out a style quiz and are sent an outfit every month based on their style preferences. The best part is that there’s no styling fee—just a small shipping fee that is credited toward the cost of anything you keep.
This package was sent to us at no cost to review. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).
The Subscription Box: Nadine West
The Cost: $9.78 is charged to your account when your package ships (to cover shipping) and that amount is put towards the cost of the items you keep. If you return everything, however, that amount is not refunded.
IMPORTANT NOTE: A couple of months ago, several readers expressed concern over the shipping charge of $9.78. Please note that this is a recent increase! However, existing subscribers keep their previous rate, which I think was $6.50.
The Products: Each pink package will include 2-4 items. Typical combos include a shirt or scarf and a couple pieces of jewelry and other accessories.
Ships to: U.S.
Keep Track of Your Subscriptions: Add this box to your subscription list or wishlist!
Nadine West sent along this invoice in the envelope, which lists the costs of each item. There’s also a return shipping label included in the package. If I return an item, I won’t get charged for it. If I keep it past the return deadline, I will get charged for it. Remember to drop your return in the mail by the deadline listed on your invoice to avoid unwanted charges!
Before we dive in, I’m usually a medium (6) on top and a large (10) on the bottom, so I set my preferences accordingly (they just take letter sizes rather than numbers). Hopefully, that helps you gauge how things fit!
Wrap Me Up in Your Love Cardigan in Beige – Listed Value $24.99
This jersey cardigan is the kind of handy garment that’s nice to have on chilly days. It’s not very thick, but it is comfy and neutral enough to go with a lot of different outfits. I liked the oatmeal color and the long, scrunchable sleeves.
Laila Top in Pink – Listed Value $14.49
This top ended up being way more flattering than I thought it’d be! I like the pretty, effortless way the front billows over me. The back is longer, which is good from a leggings-wearing standpoint, but I almost wish it was the same length all around. The color is really pretty, though. (Hey, I’m a millennial—it shouldn’t be surprising that I love millennial pink!) I just wish it was thicker! This top is super unintentionally sheer. There are a few weird stitches inside, too.
Stonehenge Earrings – Listed Value $14.99
These earrings are made from silvery metal that’s been hammered to give it a bumpy, more rustic texture. They’re simple, but I like simple earrings that go with anything.
Stonehenge Necklace – Listed Value $24.99
This silvery necklace has a similar rustic texture as the earrings, plus a pink gem in the center that matches the top I got. It’s not quite my style, but it is a unique design that I could see someone really liking. I like long pendant necklaces like this one—you can throw it on over a plain top to give an outfit some extra oomph. My qualm is that the chain is made from that tight kind of weave that can pinch the teeny hairs on my neck.
Ethnic Elephant Bracelet – Listed Value $13.99
This bracelet didn’t really do it for me. These kinds of vaguely Asian-inspired patterns aren’t my fave, and the quality doesn’t feel all that great (it was a little sharp on the edges). The good news is it’s adjustable, so it can bend to fit your wrist. Plus it matches the color of the other jewelry in this month’s package, if not the design.
The Verdict: Last month’s package was a fun one for me, but this month’s selections were a little… meh. Nadine West always picks pieces that are super comfortable—the cardigan was comfy and cozy for being so lightweight, and the top was billowy and easy to wear. But I don’t know if I’ll keep these pieces—the quality didn’t feel like it matched the price points in my opinion. Take that with a grain of salt though—I’m lucky to have access to lots of shops close by, plus the time to spend on shopping now and then (which I enjoy). If I didn’t, I think Nadine West could be a handy way to get new comfy pieces without having to drive a long distance or spend lots of time on shopping.
To Wrap Up:
Can you still get this box if you sign up today? No, but just because what you get is curated to match your style.
Value Breakdown: The items are supposedly worth $93.45. To just try them on, it costs only $9.78 (which goes towards the cost of whatever you keep), and you can return whatever you don’t want.
