This is What it’s Like Shopping Online at Fashion Nova
Fashion Nova fell onto my radar six months ago after I had developed a major girl crush on Instagram star Tammy Hembrow. She had posted a clothing haul from the e-comm store, and I immediately started surfing the online.
I’m fairly short, 5 feet to be exact, with a petite frame. I typically wear a size 25, so finding denim in the right length and size isn’t always easy. I decided to put Fashion Nova to the ultimate test and start my shopping spree with a search for the perfect denim, skimming through 25+ pages to find the right pair.
To be honest, I was a bit hesitant because Tammy Hembrow’s booty is substantially larger than your average, so I wasn’t sure how the fit would work for me. But with other influencers like Kylie Jenner and Khloe Kardashian sporting denim from the website, I was determined to find out if the hype was real.
The prices are all in US dollars, making the cost superficially low — when shopping, remember to add about 30% onto your order for conversion. Shipping to Canada is free if you spend $75, though you might incur duties depending on how much you spend. The shipping is also very fast; my order came in less than 7 business days, which works out well if you’re shopping for a special occasion!
Fade Into You Jeans, $39.99
Quality/Fit: Great! I decided to go with a black ripped denim in size 1. The quality is good; they have a ton of stretch which allows for more than a singular body type to look flawless in them. The jeans are a cotton and rayon blend, with a bit of Spandex, making them super easy and comfortable wear. Pant legs are always long on me, so that was to be expected, but they don’t bunch too much at the bottom, giving me the option to leave them as is, or fold them for a different look. The front and back pockets are real, which I love because where else do you put your phone when you’re having a no purse moment?
Dark Distress Jeans, $39.99
Quality/Fit: These jeans were such a good purchase. I wear them all the time because they are tight and hug my body quite nicely. This pair is a size 1, as well. One issue I typically notice with different styles of high waisted jeans is that they squeeze your body too tight, leaving you with a faux pregnancy bump (not a good look). These jeans seamlessly hold me in without suffocating me to death. While the high waist on these jeans is a bit excessive, I think it’s merely because my measurements are not ideal for adult clothing… unless I’m buying a t-shirt to wear as a dress.
