Relish Clothing review #1

I say #1 because there WILL be more.  I'm in love with almost everything that arrived in my mystery box!  I ordered a Medium sized box - 6 or 7 items - for $149 US plus $30 shipping to Canada.  I can't remember why, but at the time I ordered there was a 10% discount so in total, I paid $164 US or about $215 Can.  For me, that was taking a risk.  I don't tend to spend that much on clothes but I knew my closet needed some TLC.

I am NOT a fashionista - I need all the help I can get to look presentable.  I don't mind shopping, but I really don't know what looks good, what's in style, etc. so all the help I can get is a good thing.

What I need is real clothes and that's exactly what I got.  These are all staple items.

I still need to spend quite a bit of time styling the outfits, but here's what I got:

1.  Esley Blazer
This is a knit blazer that can perfectly dress up a pair of jeans but with the comfort of wearing a sweater or cardigan.  I had asked for this and in this color.  They did size me up to a Medium which was the right thing to do as a small would not have fit.

I did a quick search and found in on sale in a variety of online boutiques for between $60 and $75.

2,  Creative Concepts blouse
Another one that I had pinned as an item I liked from past boxes.  It does run large in size so this size Small is big, but is still fine.

I found many Creative Concepts blouses online (and in Stitch Fix reviews) priced around $60.

3.  Le Lis long sleeve t-shirt
Perfect everyday t-shirt, but the mixed media gives it a little more style.

Similar Le Lis long sleeves are about $40 online.

4.  Paper Moon Cardigan
Wow this is comfy, oversized (so probably not flattering) and something I will live in this fall and winter.  It has pockets and a hood, and covers my butt perfectly.

Similar Paper Moon cardigans are about $40 online.

5.  12PM by Mon Ami dress/tunic
I think it's a bit long on me for a tunic and it's too darn cold here to wear it as is as a dress.  I'm going to try to style it with boots, caridgan and tights and see how I can pull it off.  It is SUPER soft and comfy!  Even though I'm not that into fashion, even I know that Ombre is 'the' thing right now.

I've seen this exact same dress online priced on average of $50.

6.  Beulah Moto in Teal
These are perfect!  They fit like a glove (I was sized up to Medium which was the right call) and are so flattering.  I can't wait to start styling these.  I had some teal jeggings that I thought were nice until I got these!  My favorite in the box.

These are priced at $50 online.


I'm very happy with the items I got.  I feel the value was definitely there.  For $164, I got about $300 worth of clothes.  I have already ordered another box, this time a $199 large box.  The shipping cost is the same, so decided I may as well as pay $50 more and get 2 or 3 more items.

Looking at these pictures, it's obvious I need to do some styling, but I'll wait for my teenager to help me with that!
