What is Nadine West? It’s a new subscription box service that sends clothing and jewelry. I wouldn’t compare it to Stitch Fix, because you only get one shirt a month (as well as two jewelry pieces), but it sounds fun and more affordable. Most of their pieces are $25 or less. But the best part is that there’s no service fee. Everything is free – they send you the package, you try it on, decide whether or not you want to keep anything, and send back what you don’t like. So you literally have nothing to lose!
That’s why I’m going to keep getting Nadine West, even though my first package was a huge disappointment. I’d read other reviews online that looked good, so I still have hope. But here’s a look at what I got.
Shirt (I returned the order form so I don’t have exact names or prices, but I know it was around $24.95).
I took one look at this and thought “no way.” On your style profile you can check off what colors you like, and light pink is most definitely not one of them for me. I am so not a light pink person. Plus, with the fringe it kind of looks more like a rug. When I put it on it was even worse, which is why you don’t have a picture of me wearing it. It had a really weird shape in that it seemed like it wasn’t long enough, but it was really wide. And it was totally see through, so you’d have to put a tank top on underneath. I didn’t feel like doing that so no picture!
The subscription box I was most looking forward to getting was my Stitch Fix! If you’re unfamiliar, here’s the concept: the company has you fill out a style profile, and you get assigned a stylist. This person picks out 5 clothing items they thing you’ll like and mails them to you so you can try on everything at home. You keep what you want and mail back the rest. It costs $20 per month, but if you purchase anything that $20 gets applied toward the price of the item.
In order to try and infuse at least a little Disney into this post, since it is a Disney blog, I’m also going to rate each piece based on whether or not I would wear them in the parks.
Colibri Solid Tab Sleeve Blouse – $48
I really loved this shirt. I’m not usually a fan of super hot pink, but I liked it here for some reason. The shirt itself was so soft and I loved how it looked… but it was way too big. You can’t really tell from the picture because I have both my hands on my hips, but I was swimming in it. I realize now that I’ll have to change my shirt size to a medium for future shipments. I would love to get this shirt again in a small. I think this might be a nice shirt to wear to the parks in the wintertime, when it can be cool and you want something with longer sleeves, but it’s still Florida so you want it to be light as well!

In her shop, Nicole offers lots of beautiful rhinestone shirt designs perfect the Disney lover, and especially for Disney brides. Her designs are creative and really high quality. She sent me an awesome shirt to review, and customized it for my anniversary! I can’t wait to wear it this September.
There are lots of beautiful, sparkly rhinestones. None of them fell off at any point – not during shipping, wearing it for awhile, or even going through the wash. Everything about it is high quality. I was also impressed with the shirt used. It didn’t feel cheap at all and was very comfortable.
I am so excited to bring you our first ever contest! Etsy shop Enchanted Bridal is hosting a contest with us. She makes incredible rhinestone transfer designs that I’m completely in love with – there are a lot of wedding related ones, but also holidays and more. She’s looking for some new ideas of designs she can make, and we thought Disney in your Day readers would be the perfect people to ask!
The design I picked out from her shop – I’m excited to wear it for Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party next week!
So here’s how you enter the contest:
Think of a design that you would like to see made into rhinestones for a transfer. Describe either in words or through a picture what it would look like. Post your idea here in the comments or on our facebook page. That’s it!
Up next on our featured Etsy Spotlights is a store called DoodleBug Bowtique. They make a variety of embroidered t-shirts and other items that can be personalized. They have a ton of interesting designs and their shirts would be great for many occasions, including a family trip to Disney World! It would be the perfect way to have matching shirts that are still personalized.
I was sent one of their t-shirts for review. The one pictured above is what I received. One of the things that I really like about this design is the fact that it’s a more subtle design, perfect for adults that may not want to be over the top with their Disney t-shirts. With a simple Minnie Mouse head in the pocket area, it’s a nice way to represent your love for Disney, and is a shirt that you could feel comfortable wearing not just in the parks, but on a daily basis.
