The pieces came nicely wrapped. They include a welcome and thank you note.
As a bonus, I received 3 hair ties.
A pre-paid mailing envelope is included for when it's time to return the clothing.
Naked Zebra Sleeveless Shift Dress
This cream coloured sleeveless dress features a high neck collar and faux slit pockets. In my style profile, I made note that I didn't want anything form-fitting so they met that request but I didn't like the fit of this dress. It didn't look very flattering and is a bit sheer which I didn't like.
Hem & Thread Twist Dress
At first glance, I kind of liked this style. I like that's it's sleeveless, the colour and the casual style but once I tried it on, it just didn't look right. The hemline is supposed to be uneven but it just looks sloppy and doesn't fall nicely, but the upper part of the dress did fit well.
Haute Monde Black Skirt
This skirt is gorgeous! It's definitely statement skirt that I would wear for a dressed up occasion. It's fully lined and has a zip-up back. It's got some weight to it but not too heavy that's it's uncomfortable. This is my favourite piece of all three.
à pois is ideal for anyone who doesn't like to wear the same thing twice or for those who want new clothing for a certain event or purpose like new a job. The clothing is pre-loved and they were in near-new condition and clean so that's good. As for customization, I'd say they did an ok job. I didn't like the two dresses and even though I loved the skirt, I didn't get a chance to wear it out. What I didn't like is that I have never heard of any of these brands and I couldn't find the pieces online. I believe they are wholesale brands which there's nothing wrong with but if I'm renting clothing I want to at least know the brand I'm wearing.
