I won’t lie, I do like to shop. As in, actually stroll Newbury Street or through a strip mall and go shopping– I’m not one of those people who prefers to just order online [if I do it's because I've been sucked in and made an impulse purchase-- oops!]. BUT that personal preference didn’t make my experience with Express Box by BJB any less enjoyable… because WHO does not love coming home to a package, especially one full of outfits upon outfits personally selected for you?
Here’s the gist: you may already be familiar with The Blues Jean Bar, the ultimate boutique for finding denim in a super comfortable setting, but recently they introduced BJB Express, and jeans are just the beginning. Six hand-picked outfits curated just for you and sent straight to your doorstep. You have 10 days to figure out which pieces you love and which you can live without, and you pay only for what you keep. Shipping to you + back is free; all you are charged is a $1 deposit.
So if you are one of those ladies who hates to try on clothes in public dressing rooms, gets flustered in crowded shops, or just can’t find the time to shop in a manner other than online, this is the service for you. If you love it, keep using it! You can have a box sent to you as often or infrequently as you like; this is the Birchbox of the fashion world but without the monthly subscription obligation.
The most fun part of this all [besides the Christmas-morning like feel of opening the box]? Filling out my style profile and seeing what stylists Scottie and Marnee put together for me!

Funny enough, I think BF made the smartest comment of all about this shopping service: I may have not picked up some of these pieces off the rack on my own, but once they were already in my house and I was free to try them on at my leisure, I didn’t want to have to send them back!
The Blues Jean Bar is offering my readers 20% off any purchases you make from your first Express Box. Sign up for your box here, and in the referral portion of the application, mention shell chic’d for your 20%-off discount! Remember, you will only be charged for what you decide to keep, and I hope that discount entices you to keep a bit more :)
