a NEW YEAR, a NEW WAY TO SHOP


Today I am excited to share a new store, Bungalow Clothing with you. This fall Bungalow reached out to me to discuss partnering up, and I have to admit at first I thought, "What makes you different from other boutiques?" 

It turns out, a lot. 

Unlike other stores where you fill up a shopping cart, Bungalow treats online shopping like filling a dressing room. They send you your selections, you try them on and they only charge your credit card once they have received your returns.

The best part? There is no fussing with packaging, and no trips to the mailbox. You simply text Bungalow when you're done and they arrange a FedEx pickup to your door. You have 10 days to try on the items and zero commitment to buy anything. 

So, I thought, I'll give it a try. Then I thought, what would I really like to....

1. Be able to try on in the privacy of my own home
2. Have a lot of choices (they aren't charging your credit card up front, you can feel free to order as much as you want). 

Besides swimsuits? Jeans. You see, I really dislike trying on jeans in stores. I always feel rushed, and I have made more than one guilt-purchase because of a pushy sales person. 

So, I ordered five pairs of jeans (some in multiple sizes).


When they arrived I was impressed by the packaging (the box came with a convenient suitcase style handle), but I was also confused. The box was really big. Like, way too big for just jeans. 

Enter the other big thing that sets Bungalow apart...


I opened it up to discover that not only was this box filled with jeans, but it was also filled with beautiful jackets, tops and dresses. At first I thought, "Oh no! I got someone else's order!"

However, after calling Bungalow (you get a real, very friendly, person immediately I realized that I had missed half of the Bungalow concept. Not only do they send you what you ordered, but they also have a personal stylist suggest items that they think align with your style. 

You know how when you try on jeans at a store and the sales person gives you a shirt so you can tell what it will look like all styled together? Same idea except it's curated especially for you. 


Because it was my first time, the extra items ended up being a bit too big on me, but I did keep two pairs of jeans. One skinny (that you'll see tomorrow) and one wide leg that I will share soon. 

After talking with Bungalow more I also found out that if need a different size, they will send it to you right away (without waiting for the other items to be returned). 


I love these boyfriend jeans, this jumpsuit, and this gorgeous emerald clutch.

Right now you can get 25% off your first purchase with the code "trybuy." 

Try it out and let me know what you think!
