With the holidays approaching, I bet you have a lot to shop for. For me, I can always use a few more cute skirts + winter sweaters, and I have a few holiday events I want to look good for! Online shopping is definitely my favorite way to go, but sometimes I get disappointed because I purchase something and it (1) doesn’t fit or (2) doesn’t look anything like the picture. Also – with my favorite sites being overseas, sometimes the sizing can be completely different! And is there ANYTHING worse than sending something back, and having to wait for a refund on your credit card? Makes me anxious just thinking about it! Especially if I am trying two sizes of a rather expensive dress (because they both are charged on my card!).
So enter Try.com, an online service that allows you to try the items before you buy them. Pretty genius right? Why didn’t I think of that??! It works really easily! Either with the app, or on your laptop (with the try.com extension added to your browser) you can shop at any of the Try.com retailers (and they have amazing stores like Zara, ASOS, Forever 21), order what you want, and you don’t have to charge it to your own credit card. Once you receive your package, you now have 7 days to try the items on, keep what you love and return what you don’t within that timeframe! Now you don’t have to worry about waiting for a refund and you get a chance to try the items at home.
For my first Try.com order, I knew I wanted to get something for the holidays, something leopard, a skirt to wear with OTK boots and a few other items! I chose to order from ASOS because of the wide variety of items and really great prices. Usually, I skip this site because the sizing is UK, so things tend to fit differently. However, with Try.com I wanted to give it a chance.
For my Try.com haul, I got a lot of amazing stuff. I knew I wanted something leopard, but wasn’t sure exactly what – so I went with two different pieces – I top and a dress. I also ordered some sweater dresses, another formal dress, a new purse in a lovely green, and a few other pieces! Here is a little of my haul:
The leopard top was totally worth the price (& I usually don’t splurge!) but its well made and I can style it with the leopard skirt I already have or a pair of jeans! The blazer and burgundy skirt ended up going back as both didn’t fit right. The seater dress I fell in LOVE with but it, unfortunately, was just too big! Bummer! I am so stoked about the green crossbody, how gorgeous is the color? It felt SO good to get to try these items with being obligated to keep them or send them back and wait for my refund!
My favorite items that I ordered are definitely this white silk cami and the checkered skirt, which I styled below. The fall foliage made the perfect backdrop!
If you want to try Try.com yourself, for a limited time, you can get $25 off a $100 order with My Code! Totally worth it – happy shopping!
