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).

About Nadine West

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.

This is the invoice that was sent with my package. The return date is listed on the invoice.

Open Triangle Necklace

Open Triangle Necklace - Cost to Keep $24.99

This necklace is really pretty, but it's not really my style. I am not really into statement jewelry. I think this would be awesome for someone who is, though! You can see pictures of me wearing this necklace below.

Wow. This bracelet would be very cool on someone with slender wrists, but as you can see, it is way too small for me. I feel like it's cutting off the blood supply to my hands. I like the idea, though. The hieroglyphs are cool and this would be something I would really like if it fit properly.

Sparkling Comments Earrings

Sparkling Comments Earrings - Cost to Keep $16.99

I love these earrings! They are so pretty and shiny, and the disco balls make them perfect for New Year's! I also have to mention that my nine-year-old some complimented me on these. Seriously, if a piece of jewelry is pretty enough to capture the attention of a nine-year-old boy, it's definitely a keeper! You can see these earrings in the pictures of me below also.

Distressed Jeggings - Cost to Keep $27.99

I wish you could see how small these jeggings are. I think they are very cool and funky, but they are so small. They sent the size I requested, but to say they run small would be a massive understatement. When I pulled them out of the package, I felt kind of like you feel when you pull a pair of pantyhose out of the package. You look at them and think, wow, how on earth will my body fit into these? With pantyhose, they just open up and stretch and fit your body right in there. Not the case with these jeggings. They have remarkable stretch, but I'm a solidly plus-size woman, and I can't even imagine my teenage niece fitting into these.

Turn Up the Heat Top modeled

Turn Up the Heat Top - Cost to Keep $28.49

This chiffon top, on the other hand, is awesome! I love the colors! It's pretty sheer and lightweight, but I think it would work great as a layering piece. It would also work well here in Georgia in the fall, as it is still pretty hot here through at least October.

Open Arms Top modeled

Open Arms Top

Open Arms Top - Cost to Keep $22.49

I'm not really sure where to start with this cotton jersey top. I actually had high hopes for it when I pulled it out of the package, as I really like the idea behind the exposed arms with a knot in the center. I think that's a really pretty detail. Otherwise, the cut and size are all wrong. I recently saw an interview with Rebel Wilson where she questioned the practice amongst plus size brands of making everything extra long, and this shirt is a good example of what she is talking about. I am an inch or two shorter than "average" height, so I expect sleeve lengths to be an inch or two long. These sleeves are maybe six inches too long. I am also long waisted, so I don't expect tops to hit lower than my hip (unless they are cut/labeled tunic), and this top definitely exceeds that. Here's a picture:

This picture, while not flattering, shows what a difference the length of a top makes. All the scrunching is not really attractive, but you see how altering the length of the top gives me a bit of shape and makes my legs look way longer. It's not Nadine West's fault, but I wish designers would consistently make plus size clothing for women in the average height range. I totally understand that some women are plus size because they are super tall, but the majority of us are not. I just wish this top fit better! I like the sleeves and the softness of the top a lot!

The Verdict: I love Nadine West! Having said that, I have mixed feelings about this month's box. I LOVE that they sent more pieces! It's so much more fun to try six pieces than four! I also love the earrings and the striped top! Everything else was a bit of a bust, though. I think if you want to treat yourself to a styling service on a budget, Nadine West is the way to go! Their pieces are not always the highest quality, but they are consistently the least expensive.

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 valued at $134.94. 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.

I really love the chiffon top with the statement necklace on you! I know you said it’s not really your style, but I think you’re rocking it. Also, LOVE that your 9 year old noticed your earrings! That is so sweet!

I received my first pair of pants from Nadine West this month and I had a similar reaction. As soon as I held them up I new there was no way they would even come close to fitting. So I checked the tag, thinking they must have sent the wrong size, but the label showed my size. I didn’t even attempt to try them on. The waist was so small I don’t think it would fit around my thigh let alone my waist. Their tops always fit well, so I’m not sure what’s up with their pants sizing, but there is definitely an issue there…

Thank you for pointing out the height issue. I have this problem time and time again, especially with jeans. What absolutely blows my mind is that I buy petite sizes and I’m even on the tall side for petite, but these things are almost always way, way too long!
