Blues Jean Bar Express (July 2014)

I received my quarterly Blues Jean Bar Express┬átoday! I always get so excited when the huge suitcase of a box shows up on my front doorstep. The clothing was packaged beautifully as usual with tissue and twine. I didn’t receive as many outfits this time but I was happy with the variety of items I received. The only issue I had with this month’s shipment is that I would have liked it to be more summer oriented. After all, it was 85 degrees out and I was trying on long sleeves and jeans. I think that made me not love some of the items that I may have liked if it was October instead. I also did receive a duplicate item, this is only my third box so hopefully they keep a better eye on not sending duplicates – unless is a different size for an item, cause they’re really awesome about doing that if you need a different size!

The Blues Jean Bar #2

The Blues Jean Bar is about the greatest thing to hit “subscription boxes” since the OG of monthly subscription boxes, Birchbox. BJB, as I affectionately call it, is the most personalized and attentive clothing styling service around. You pay $1 to start and then complete an in-depth style profile and a lovely person from BJB picks out four to five outfits just for you! To top it off shipping both ways is included, you can keep your clothes for ten days to try on, and there are no monthly membership fees, purchase minimums, or hidden catches! Normally I’d say this is all too good to be true, but I promise you – it’s the best thing ever!

My lovely stylist Marnee, communicated with me about what I was looking for and exactly what sizes/styles worked for me. My first box was a little off on sizing (largely my fault), but this box hit a home run – outta the park! In full disclosure, I was given a credit to use towards a pair of jeans, but I loved some other things and spent my hard earned money on those as well! Without further a-do, here’s what I received (and I apologize for the bad pics, I was sick, and going out in the sun for a pretty background was outta the question!):
