Two weeks ago a post popped up on my FB from Equestrian Fashion Outfitters. It was for their 'mystery boxes'. They have two- one for horses and one for riders. The rider one promises a pair of breeches and '1-3' casual items, an accessory and a horse treat sample. All for $199.
I hemmed and hawed about it. I was intrigued by the surprise and I do love a bargain.
In the end I pulled the trigger and placed the order. You tell them your size and discipline. The problem with sizes is that they are very brand dependent. So I sent an email to clarify my sizes.
It arrived within 2 days.
The box itself was not impressive but then clothes don't always take a lot of space. When I opened it I was shocked by how much was in there.
An Isabel Werth long sleeve polo, Isabel Werth full seat breeches and socks. Plus a coordinated horse bonnet.
Plus some boot lifts and horse treats.
All the tags were still on so I did the math (how could I resist) at the cost added up to $499. This is a steal even if the items were year end clear out. Even Ed thought it was a good deal.
Everything fit, although the breeches area bit lower cut than I like, but they are not terrible. The jacket I love. I've been looking for one like this and I'm glad I didn't purchase one.
The quilted (shiny, puffy!) coats are all the rage in Europe and especially the Arabian horse show scene. I'm like the only one slummin' it in a Columbia polarfleece. (My mom sends us them every year for Christmas so we have like 6 of them in the house!) I feel so out of it when little old ladies and men are sporting the puffy coats.ReplyDelete
Despite our wardrobe overflowing, my husband refuses to wear polarfleece in public. I asked him why, one day, and he said, "I don't wear pajamas in public."
I love polar fleece. Except when the horses are shedding. LolDelete
Wow. That's a great deal and you even got good stuff. I don't like the horse boxes because they're always full of random stuff I wouldn't want or already have that barely equal the cost of the items. But this box looks good.ReplyDelete
I was glad I took the risk.Delete
Oh man you’re brave for going for it haha - I’m way too much of a miser and have been way too underwhelmed by some of these box situations. This one is awesome tho - esp love that jacket !!ReplyDelete
I don't know that I would have if I hadn't had experience with this store before. I felt very brave though hitting 'checkout' :DDelete
I love those kinds of boxes.... but I usually end up with things I have no use for. Looks like your box was a win though! I really like the jacket!ReplyDelete
Well they tell you the categories of what is in it, so I knew I was getting clothes.Delete
omg wait... I love those. Thanks for the review I might actually take a leap on that one. I wonder if I can request purple...ReplyDelete
I don't know if you can request a colour but it never hurts to ask. :DDelete
Surprise boxes are super fun! I don't usually spring for the pricey ones cause I'm not that brave, but this was an awesome one! Really nice stuff!ReplyDelete
I wouldn't agree that you are not brave. :) I've seen your cow boots. :DDelete
Great stuff! I've never done that now I'm considering it.ReplyDelete
Oh oh. I guess I am an enabler. :DDelete
A great deal and so much cute stuff!ReplyDelete
so much cute stuff. :)Delete
Wow that’s awesome. I’m pretty frugal but at over half off? That’s awesome. Do they have these often or was this a one time deal?ReplyDelete
It is a one time deal. They advertise ahead of time to build hype. I suspect it's to clear out last year's inventory.Delete
Love the jacket!ReplyDelete
Me too. :)Delete
Everything is so cute! You are braver than I am though, I just couldn't take the risk at that price point...ReplyDelete
It was a bit of a leap. I don't think I would have done it if I hadn't dealt with them in the past.Delete
