Fashion Nova Haul and Review •Vacation Edition
Oh Fashion Nova. The brand has built a huge following online. This isn’t the first time I’ve purchased from them and it probably won’t be the last.
I bought these items around Black Friday. I wanted some items for our then-upcoming cruise and was twiddling my thumbs unsure if my Romwe order would ship in time and thought “Oh Fashion Nova shipped my stuff really quickly before I could get stuff from them and it’ll definitely be here on time!”
Purchasing items so close to Black Friday was a big mistake. It took three weeks to be shipped from their place and then another week and a half to get to Guam. Also mErCuRy wAs iN rEtRoGrAdE so I knew better but I didn’t do better. SMH.
Order date was Dec. 7. Shippping date was Dec. 16. Delivered Dec. 29.
In that time I scanned twitter for ‘Fashion Nova’ and saw many a folks a-tweetin’ about delayed shipping. We all played ourselves.
I also ordered the Make A Splash Tropical Dress which was in stock when I sent them my MONEY but when they shipped my order it was out of stock so they sent me a refund. 👀😕
Here are the items I bought, as styled on Fashion Nova’s totally proportionate and realistic Nova Babes:
Joyce crop tee in white — it’s a simple nice square neckline top that had a bit of stretch and I loved. I reach for it a lot actually because it’s versatile and the neckline is interesting but still can be an easy thing to pair for work.
Bora Bora jumpsuit — This wasn’t as great as I had hoped it’d be. The material is perfect for a warm weather vacation because it’s breathable. The way it fit me though was awkward and I suspect it’s brcause I didn’t have enough chest to fill out the top. I also went on a cruise and by the time I decided to don this lil number of I maybe had a full blown food baby brewing and so I think it fit me weird in the tummy area. Plus the straps for sleeves are LOOOOONG AF and time consuming to do up. This is still good but if you’re in this then bitch YOU ARE STAYING IN THIS. Because once you undo the straps to pee, then you’ve got to allot another 10 minutes maybe to get the straps back on.
Walk All Day Overlay Short in camel— This was the most surprising item I bought because it was nowhere near the color of the photo. It’s definitely not camel colored. It’s more brown. Like a Milani Amore liquid lipstick brown which I preferred over this orange thing? This also was my favorite piece. So cute! So vacation. And it can go with a number of things. For me, not exactly 5-foot tall, the shorts were a good length and the material wasn’t seethrough.
Also both the jumpsuit and the maxi skort were too long so I hemmed them.
Other than that, I’d give this order a 6/10.
Items are cute and definitely things I can wear but shipping and the jumpsuit straps are too much stress for this type of situation. This doesn’t, however, deter me from scanning the FN website again… I Know, I know! I’m part of the problem! Halp!😓
Hope this helped you Nova Babes in your eternal Nova Body pursuits! Let me know how you like your FN orders!
