I received my first Nadine West Bag today!
Shiny pink mailer aside, I was excited to see what I had been sent.
Nadine west is an online subscription bag that is COMPLETELY FREE and TOTALLY NON COMITMENT
In theory, this is a great idea: you sign up for a subscription, (you do have to enter your credit card info, and they put a hold on a $1 to make sure it goes through-I’ll explain this in a moment) fill out a little info about your self- including your pricing and size preferences- and they send you fun tops and accessories that they think you’ll enjoy. Once these are received, you can either choose to keep them, in which case you will be charged (see? I told you I’d explain), or send them back with the free shipping label that comes in the bag
Here are the things I was sent this month
This scarf was all right. It wasn’t awesome quality, but it was pretty with its muted turquoise and corals, it would go with a lot of my clothes…. If I didn’t have one that already looks the same… that I bought for around $5.00. For this one they wanted $17.99, and while it wont break the bank, it’s more than I want to spend on an item like this. So back it goes.
This was cute, but they were asking $9.99 for it, a stretch bracelet with plastic beads. Not totally unreasonable, but too much for the quality of the item, in my opinion. Also, I just don’t like stretch bracelets, I’ve always had larger wrists, and they rarely fit me correctly. It went back into the bag after one glance.
I hated this option. Yes, its boho, yes its turquoise, two of my favorite attributes . BUT- and this is a big one- It was horrible quality, the WHOLE pendant was plastic, it had no weight to it, and it came with this weird snake chain that did not mesh well at all. For this they wanted $17.99?
That went back as well.
All in all I am not yet pleased with Nadine West. This is my first month though, and they are a fairly new company, so I’ll stick with them and see if they take my preferences into account next time. On the survey/ return slip that comes with the bag they ask why you returned items. I filled them out accordingly and hope that they will see that.
I really like this concept, and I hope it gets better. You can choose the style of tops you like and whats preferable jewelry wise. The profile test is really easy to take and only lasts a few minutes. I was hoping to see some plus sizes in the clothing, but there are no plus options yet. I also wrote that I would rather have accessories over clothing because I don’t think any of the clothes will fit, but I guess we will see if they stick to that. Has anyone else tried this subscription? What do you think?
Lets keep Trying Nadine West!
