This post is linked with The Pleated Poppy for What I Wore Wednesday.
You saw in my March Newsletter I’ll be showcasing Fabletics all month as my Style Wheel Big Deal. For my first outfit I selected the Olive Capri and Norwalk Tank. The pants have a tripple keyhole detail at the hem and are made of a thick, stretchy material that has already been washed numerous times and held up very well. The tank is loose fitting and has an adjustable tie-hemline. I love that I actually found a work out top that boasts purple and turquoise–it’s like they were thinking of TAOLB while designing it! The attached sports bra allows for 2 vents in the back, an element that has proven handy during especially sweaty work outs. #swimsuitseasonisapproaching
I have loved joining Fabletics, and I hope you will take a minute to read all the way to the end of the post where I answer some FAQs. My favorite part obviously is how fun and colorful all the outfits are. My least favorite part is that all the best pieces sell out very quickly. So if you see something you love, it’s best to go ahead and purchase it or you run the risk of missing out on your size.
So lets talk about Fabletics for a second, and let me answer some FAQs:
What is Fabletics?
Fabletics is an online subscription retailer that sells women’s sportswear and accessories.
How does it work?
When I became a member back in January, the site prompted me to take a short “pop quiz” to better equip them in selecting what type of work-out clothes are best suited for my lifestyle: jogging, yoga, etc…A personal, customized look book is sent directly to my Inbox each month. I can shop the looks directly from the email, or I can log onto the site and shop the entire collection. **Members must make their purchase(s) by the 5th of the month or a charge of $49.95 will be applied to the credit card on file. The option ‘skip this month’ is available and must also be selected by the 5th of the month.
Is it expensive?
Not at all! Members enjoy a 50% discount with each purchase. Guests are welcome to shop, however aren’t able to take advantage of the member discount. Any charge over $49.95 receives free shipping.
If something doesn’t fit can I return it?
Returns are very simple to make and free for the customer. Log into the account, click My Orders at the top and select the piece or pieces returning. Exchanges and returns for Store Credit are free. Returns for a full refund contain a $5.95 re-stocking fee. This fee is not per number of items returned, but is applied to the entire return transaction. Original tags must be attached in order to return.
How is the Quality?
Excellent. The pants are thick and stretchy, and have held their color and shape well after many washes. All materials used are high quality and the cut is very true to size.
Can I purchase Fabletics at a store?
There are actually 6 Fabletics stores throughout the US–3 on the East coast, one in Cincinnati, one in St. Louis and one in Woodland Hills, California.
That’s all I got for today.
