Here is what I found.
Nadine West

Fun stuff,  pricing good, quality was marginal. I received two tops and two pieces of jewelry. I kept all four items. Customer service was excellent.

Stitch Fix
$20 + cost of items kept. If you keep all five items you receive a 25% discount. Stitch Fix is a personal styling service. Your fill out your style and size preferences online, then you are sent a package of stylish goodies to try on at home. No two Fixes are alike, and each one is hand–picked just for you.
OVERALL IMPRESSION: 3 stars
WOW loved my box of items I received. The items were higher priced than I would normally spend ($65-100 per item) but good quality unique pieces. I purchased two of the five items in the box.  Customer service was good.

Gwynnie Bee
Gwynnie Bee offers membership from 1 item out at a time for $49 per month up to 10 items out at a time for $199 per month. Gwynnie Bee is a monthly subscription service for sizes 10-32. Members receive unlimited access to a closet the size of a department store with unlimited free shipping each month.

Very efficient customer service. I really like the way they try to match you with very specific style requests. I spent about 20 minutes personally speaking to my stylist, and she asked some great questions. I especially like how they size compare on their site. For example if you wear a size 12 in J.Jill, it will match you to the correct size in another brand. I received my first box, packaged very well, with three tops. You try the clothes out for 30 days. If I don’t like them, I return them in the postage paid bag they provided. If you love one or all of the items, you can purchase them. The tops I received ranged from $57-$30, all name brands. All three tops fit great but I returned all three. Customer service was excellent.

Evereve Trendsend
$1 + cost of items kept. Trendsend is a personal styling service created by Evereve, a nationwide retailer specializing in styling moms. Trendsend brings the styling experience of Evereve’s stores to the comfort of your home. Your stylist will curate (?? How about “pull together” or “assemble” two to three full outfits, and may also send must-have pieces that coordinate with items you already own. Each Trendsend contains from six to eight items, including tops, bottoms, dresses and accessories.
OVERALL IMPRESSION: 2 stars
Outfits were great quality. Prices very high ($75-130 per item), and sizes way off. Customer service was a little lacking.

Wantable Style
This is a clothing styling subscription service (similar to Stitch Fix). $20 + cost of items kept. If you keep all five items, you receive a 25% discount. You fill out an in-depth survey about your clothing preferences, and your stylist picks out items for you.
OVERALL IMPRESSION: 5 stars
Really loved the box of items I received. The prices were much more affordable ($35-$65 per item) and quality was very good and unique.  The sizes were matched much better than any of the other subscription boxes I received.  I purchased two of the five items. Customer service was good.

Whether you’re giving a gift or simplyindulging yourself, these subscription boxes are sure to please. And the best part…you don’t have to leave your house to buy them!  ■
