I received an order from Birdsnest on last weeks mail plane and I am really excited to share with you what I ordered, what fit, what didn’t fit and what I am sending back. Birdsnest have introduced a new initiative called the Birdsnest Changeroom. It is so fantastic, you are going to love it.
Basically it is the ultimate try on session, with the freedom to order up to $1,000 worth of styles to try before you buy! When you upgrade your order to a birds nest Changeroom for $9.95, they will send up to $1,000 worth of gear for you to try on, and a paid returns bag to send back anything you don’t love.
This means you have the freedom to try everything on before deciding what to keep, and you only pay for what you don’t send back!!! How great is that. If you choose to pay with a ZipPay account, there are no upfront costs at all. What have you got to lose.
How fantastic is that?! Especially when you are unsure of sizing. Just order a few sizes and keep the one that fits.
So what did I order? I am so glad you asked. Here they are…
Cotton Wrap Dress currently on sale:
I’m wearing a size 12
Rasaleela Georgie Capri – Currently On Sale:
I’m wearing M/L
Bird Keepers Swing Dress – $69.95
I’m wearing a size 10 but do wish that I ordered this in an 8 to try on as well (I ordered a 12 & 10), it is a very relaxed fit, but my goodness it is comfy, it is like wearing a nighty during the day – I am in love with this dress!
Handpicked by Birds Bright Spot – Currently On Sale:
I’m wearing a size 12
And the verdict? Well I will tell you something for nothing my friends…. Birdsnest have sooooooo many items to choose from on their website. So many! In the dress section alone there are hundreds I am sure. I sifted and sifted and sifted and found these few that I was keen to try. I have quite a classic style and must admit that I did find it a little hard to find something that met my fussy/classic taste. I was a little disappointed with the lack of pink clothing… you all know how much I love my pink don’t you. Anyway, you can thank me later because I have saved you the hassle of hunting for yourself.
With all 4 dresses I ordered 2 sizes – a 10 and a 12 – and have decided to keep 2. I will be keeping the navy Bright Spotty Dress and also the Bird Keepers Swing Dress. They are both super comfy, great length and nice and cool. I think he Bright Spotty number will be great to travel in, those long days I spend in the car. Both will be fantastic for our beach holiday and they will also be wonderful to wear here at home. I can dress them up or down.
I think the Rasaleela Georgie Capri dress (the green patterned one) looks better in the photos than it does on, I found the neckline a little low for my liking and the pattern colouring isn’t really to my taste. Having said that it is a lovely cool cotton dress. Really nice length (I am 165cm tall). It is a beautiful dress, just not for me.
The White Cotton Wrap dress is also lovely, comfy and cool but I just didn’t feel the love in this one. I don’t think it was very flattering on me, made me look quite wide and a bit busty. Having said that it fit me no worries (size 12) and definitely didn’t gape at the neckline and the wrap part at the legs didn’t gape either, I would have been very comfy wearing this out and about.
That is another great thing about Birdsnest. Every item has “reviews” where people give their honest opinions, so you usually know to order up or down or where the problems are. I should have known to order a much smaller size in the swing dress because the reviews told me, I just didn’t think it would be so big.
I did want to order a couple of other dresses but they didn’t have the sizes I needed. So I requested an email to let me know when they come in. Although with Boarding School and holidays coming up I think I should stop spending, so sadly won’t be ordering these. I just love that green spotty number. And imagine how comfy that sleeveless dress would be.
So tell me. Are you already a Birdsnest fan? I am sure many of you are. And if you aren’t…. have you been living under the same rock as me? ha ha ha. I hope I have given you some shopping inspiration. It is so good to have online clothing businesses like this when you live remotely. They are always so fast with their delivery too. Often our mail up here can take weeks to get to us but Birdsnest orders always arrive within the week.
Their 365 day returns policy is also not to shabby. You have nothing to loose. Thanks so much Birdsnest for offering such a great service. You guys really do rock our world.
