My experience with Fashion Nova

Everyone and their mother knows about FashionNova, however, if you need a slight background about the company, this is how I can best describe it. 

FashionNova is an online Instagram store with 11+ million followers and has A-Listers such as Kylie Jenner and Cardi B promoting their clothes.

Contrary to popular belief, I don’t consider myself a fashionable person or a fashion blogger by any means. Therefore I never found the urge to buy from the highly popular Instagram stores. To be honest, I don’t know a lot of them in the first place. Usually, these stores get slightly sketchy as to how everything is so cheap and I always end up way too sceptical to buy. However, I took the plunge and bought from FashionNova. 

I placed the order on the site on the 26th of November (Cyber Monday). It took a while for them to get back to me, in fact, the next email I received from them was on the 9th of December. In the meantime, I started to worry. Since I had reservations regarding if I should buy from there or not in the first place, this wasn’t totally a good sign. However, I made it a point not to hassle since I purchased my items on one of the busiest days of the year.

On the 9th, they sent an email letting me know that 2 of the items that I ordered are out of stock and won’t be shipped with the rest of the items. This didn’t really sit well with me. It took so long to hear from their end regarding the order and the first time I hear back it’s them letting me know that some items I was expecting with my order won’t be arriving. To make matters worse, they did not refund the money but gave me a gift card instead. I didn’t see the problem at first, however, I had no idea how the clothes would fit or if I would want to buy from there again, so a gift card did not make a lot of sense. Apart from that, if I bought from there again, I’d have to pay for more shipping and customs. 

Regardless, the remaining items got shipped and I could not wait for them to finally arrive. Initially, the clothes were for my December trip to Paris, however, I started to realise that I should consider packing other clothes for vacation.

Once they arrived, I could not be happier with my order! The clothes are incredible quality! absolutely gorgeous materials, especially for the price!

My favourite piece of clothing is definitely the black skinny jeans. Super stretchy and with great quality material. I practically have to force myself not to wear them every day. They can be so versatile, you can dress them up or dress them down, however you want.

Thoughts overall

Starting with the cons:

  • Most probably, you have to pay customs
  • You might not get your full order and won’t get your money back
  • You might have to wait for your order a long while as this did not just happen to me.

The Pros:

  • The prices are great!
  • They have trendy clothes
  • the quality is amazing!

So do the pros conquer the cons? maybe. I’m still deciding if it’s worth getting clothes from America considering there are amazing stores in Europe. However, the quality of the items makes me consider buying from there again.
