I recently received my second Fashom box. If you aren’t familiar with Fashom, it is a service similar to Stitch Fix, but it is budget friendly. If you missed my first Fashom box, you can see it here.
While I adore Stitch Fix, evidenced by the 71 boxes that I’ve received, it can be expensive. Fashom is definitely less expensive and with quality items.

Fashion from this Fashom Box
Andre By Unit Maxi Multi Floral Dress
If you’ve read my many Stitch Fix reviews, you know that I am not a fan of maxi dresses on me. I like how they look on other people but not on me. Since I’m new to Fashom, my stylist there didn’t know that a maxi dress is not my favorite and one was sent to me.
When I first put on this Andre By Unit Maxi Floral Dress, I was immediately impressed with how soft and comfortable it was. I looked at myself in the mirror and I didn’t mind how this dress looked on me.
Christ & Carol Floral Sleeveless Dress with Pockets
I also liked that this dress has a hi-lo cut but I felt like it was a tad bit short for a 50 year old. On a younger woman, this would be adorable!
All of the jewelry that I’m wearing in this post is from Rocksbox. My Kate Spade bumblebee necklace is a favorite for summer! Rocksbox is a jewelry subscription service that sends three pieces of jewelry that you can wear for as long as you like each month. When you send your three pieces back, or buy what you like, a new box is sent. If you’d like a free month of Rocksbox, sign up with this code: PAULABFF54.
I decided not to keep this dress because of its length but I did like it. It also is very budget friendly at $42.
SM Wardrobe: Aztec Print Shift Dress
I’m wearing this dress with a favorite pair of Danskos. I recently ordered these shoes from Target and I’m eager to try them with this dress. I tried the shoes on at Target in another color and thought that they were really cute and comfortable, so they should work well. I also plan to wear my new shoes with my Lilly Tinsbury Shift Dress. I’m attending Haven Conference later this week and noodling over what clothes to bring. My Lilly dress is definitely coming for an opening cocktail party and this one might be good for either wearing to the conference sessions or out to dinner.
Exquiss Paris Printed Top
Isn’t this Exquiss Paris Printed Top unique? When I saw the preview picture for it in my email, I wasn’t sure that I would like it but I did. The material is silky soft and the kind that would resist wrinkling in a suitcase. I also loved the ruffles on the sleeves and the neckline with the cut-out.
I paired this top with Old Navy pants (similar) and Jambu shoes (similar). I had the hardest time deciding whether to keep this top or to send it back. I couldn’t decide it I liked the two color split side combination or if I didn’t. Since I wasn’t 100% sure that I liked it and also since my husband didn’t give any opinion of this top (that means it is only ok), I sent it back. It’s $38 price tag was very reasonable.
Lime N Chili Crisscross V-Neck Short Sleeve Top
When I saw the preview picture for the Lime N Chili Crisscross V-Neck Short Sleeve Top, I had high hopes that it would be a soft and comfortable top to wear this summer with shorts. It was soft and comfortable but it also was too small in my arms and across my chest.
You can see that the top rode up in an unflattering way. If I really was in love with this top, I could have requested a larger size. At $35, it was reasonable priced, but it wasn’t the top for me, so it was sent back.

I really enjoyed trying my second Fashom box and I plan to request another box either in August or September. I find the quality of the clothing and the prices to be great. If other subscription boxes are too expensive for your budget, consider giving Fashom a try.
