It has been a week since my last post, but I’m officially back from my business trip! And of course, I had a pile of boxes waiting for me as soon as I got back. The biggest surprise for me was my Elizabeth and Clarke box, since I ordered it way back in September and had completely forgotten about it.
Elizabeth and Clarke is a clothing subscription service that ships out once every season; they specialize in neutral colored tops, which I absolutely love (I’m all about neutrals!). Each season you can preview the collection and select which items you want. All their styles are designed in house and produced exclusively for them, so you won’t find any of their pieces anywhere else! The quality is super amazing for the price that you pay ($30 for one shirt, $50 for two shirts, and $60 for three shirts) and I think they are coming out with an option to re-order shirts from previous collections soon.
I like that they send a postcard with all the items in the collection on it. It will be really helpful for reordering in the future! Also, something that I think is really awesome: all the shirts are named after inspirational women named “Elizabeth”.
The Davis: I really love this peplum top! It’s hard to show the quality of clothing in a photograph, but this material (Ponte de Roma knit) is very thick and structured but also has a bit of stretch for a very flattering fit. Unfortunately, it’s a bit too big for me. I bought this in size 2 after consulting the size chart (I usually wear a size 4 in JCrew clothes), and it’s still a bit large! For anyone interested in trying Elizabeth and Clarke, I would definitely recommend sizing down.
The Barrett: This is actually from their Fall 2013 collection that I missed out on. I emailed customer service and they were very helpful and let me substitute it as a piece in my winter box! So for anyone interested in older collections, it’s worth it to email or call to ask if there is any availability. I’m also just really impressed with the responsiveness of their CS team!
Again, with this shirt I loved the fit and the material but this shirt was very large. Even for a slightly oversized fit, I needed to exchange it for a smaller size.
Overall, this was a great introduction to Elizabeth and Clarke. This was my first shipment from them, and I now know to size down for most shirts. I’m hopeful that my future purchases will fit perfectly on the first try! Luckily they offer free exchanges and returns! Each shirt was $25, and I think they are worth way more than that. The quality is so impressive and the styles are flattering. Not to mention their customer service is wonderful. Right now you can order from their Spring collection, which as 3 new styles and 2 “favorites”. I’m thinking I’ll try The Hutton and The Arden for my next shipment. How about you?
