Nadine West | Like Stitch Fix, but cheaper

After one of my Stitch Fix posts, I got an email from Nadine West, a company that offers a service similar to Stitch Fix, but with a more budget-friendly price range.

Nadine West review

They offered to send me a box to try, and since you guys love my Stitch Fix posts so much, I said yes.

I filled out a style profile (a little less detailed than what Stitch Fix offers), and waited for my shipment.

The Nadine West shipments come in a bright pink padded envelope vs. a box like Stitch Fix.   I assume this helps cut shipping costs, which helps them keep prices down.

My package contained a pair of leggings, two shirts, a dress, a pair of earrings, and a necklace.

There’s no styling fee with Nadine West, and the pieces are definitely less expensive than even Stitch Fix’s least expensive offerings.

I know you want to see what I got, so, let’s get to that.

First up are these leggings ($24.99), which are super soft.   And they have pockets!

There’s a mesh panel in the side, and then the lower leg has cut-out details. So, you wouldn’t want to wear these on a cold day.

They’re really comfy for hanging around the house, though.

I’m slightly worried that the mesh side panels won’t hold up over time, but I guess I’ll have to wait and see.

This hooded shirt ($28.99) was not my fave.

My main complain is that the length was weird, especially on my long-torso-ed self.

It also was totally not doing me any favors in the belly area.

(and no, I am not freshly pregnant.   The shirt just makes me look like I am!)

When I saw the next top ($24.99), I was excited because it has an interesting neck and also because dusty rose is a good color on me.

But the distance between the neck straps and the bottom of the v-neck was too great.

I feel like the spacing looks weird, and also, it’s impossible to keep your undergarments under wraps.   A less-deep v would have gone a long way for this shirt.

(I showed Mr. FG this top and he said, “It looks like you’re wearing a ballet slipper around your neck!” He is not wrong.)

My last clothing item is this dress ($24.99).

This dress felt rather cheaply-made, and if you look at the waistline, you can definitely see that something is not right with it.   It’s uneven, and it’s not because I’m putting my hand on my hip.

Something definitely slipped through the quality control when this was manufactured.

On to the jewelry! I got a pair of gold dangly earrings ($9.99) that are a C shape. Gold’s back in, and my jewelry hasn’t quite caught up with that, so I’m going to keep these.

I also got a gold necklace ($16.99), which I’m going to keep. I like the way a long necklace dresses up a top!

How does this compare to Stitch Fix?

  • As with Stitch Fix, you can send unwanted items back to Nadine West with the prepaid shipping label, and you are only charged for the stuff you keep.
  • Stitch Fix feels like a more luxurious experience, from the website to the packaging to the quality of the clothing.   You pay more, but you get upgrades for paying higher prices.
  • Stitch Fix’s customer service is quicker and more professional.

Of course, Nadine West is more affordable than Stitch Fix, so if someone is wanting to try a stylist-chosen clothing service on a budget, Nadine West could be appealing.

On other thing: it’s nice to not pay a styling fee, but you do pay an initial shipping fee with Nadine West (return shipping is free).

The shipping fee is $9.78, and it gets credited toward anything you keep.   So, it’s kind of like paying Stitch Fix’s styling fee, except it’s half as expensive.

How do you get started?

Visit Nadine West, fill out a style profile, and use the code NADINE to get free shipping on your first order.

Would you ever use this service? Also, if you’ve used Nadine West, I’d love to hear about it.

P.S. Thank you to Sonia for taking everything but the jewelry photos for me!

I had tried Nadine West several times, and was consistently disappointed in the quality. It is a shame there isn’t something in between the two companies, as Stitch Fix is just way too expensive

I have received 2 Nadine West shipments. I have received a couple pair of pants (one being leggings/stretch pants) and a couple of tops with jewelry each time. I am losing weight and I wanted to gain a few pieces here and there and the price seemed allot nicer than Stitch Fix. I spent allot of time writing reviews of my clothing last time. They sent me the leggings again which I asked them not to because I can't wear them other than to the gym or home. I also requested that they send me fall/winter clothing. It was still all geared for warm weather. I work around computers all day and they keep it freezing cold so that they don't get too warm. Those light weight blouses won't work. I also agree that the style is geared toward a younger crowd. I don't care for the clingy clothing either. I do appreciate this blog it was helpful reading everyone's comments. I will give them another try or two and if I keep getting these stretch pants.... I'm bailing ship and sticking with Stitch Fix.

You mean A LOT, not allot.

I've been receiving Nadine West for about a year. I was really drawn to the lower prices. But you get what you pay for. I rarely keep something, if I do it's usually jewelry. As a plus size girl, the fact that literally every single shirt is a stretchy, clingy material is a problem. They also don't seem to listen to feedback.

I unfortunately did not have the “great” stitch fix experience. I received clothes that had holes in them (pants & shirts) seams that weren’t sewn (under the arms), pants that were petite when I am tall??? Shirts that my Grandmother wouldn’t wear and shoes too. The clothing wasn’t high quality or cute but had a high price. I guess you have to be a size 2 to get the good quality cute stuff!

I use Stitch Fix and Dia&Co (I'm a plus size woman) currently and typically request professional clothes for work. So far, so good for me and I'm trying to figure out which one to drop. My daughter (age 10, but developing quickly and in women's sizes) wanted in on the subscription box fun, so I signed her up for Nadine West based on the price point and younger styles. So far, we've been really disappointed in Nadine West - body con dresses, tight and clingy tops, and weird (in my view) fashion choices (similar to the pink top with the criss-cross neck). I just can't see spending $60 for a shirt for her - which I'd have to do if I sign her up for Stitch Fix - so we keep hoping that Nadine West gets her style figured out soon(we requested loose and flowy tops, full skirts, flowy dresses, etc.). As with any of these services, it IS fun to try something new and we enjoy 'being styled', so there is that :)
