Ellie Subscription Box Review for January 2019

My January pick for my Ellie Activewear Subscription Box has a pre-Spring feel. I was saving this outfit for a Winter day when I wanted to feel like a field of wildflowers.

Customer Service Experience A warm Winter day rolled around giving me an opportunity to wear my January Ellie outfit. I tried on the leggings to discover they had a factory defect. No worries. I was curious about how Ellie's Customer Service would handle such an issue. I suspected it would be fine. I was right about that.

First, I logged into the website and easily found a Live Chat link at the bottom of my Account page. The Customer Support Representative started the chat right away.

Then, I told Customer Service my issue and that I had pictures of the leggings. I was instructed to send the pictures to via email. I sent an email, including my January invoice number, a description of the issue with the leggings and my request for a replacement pair.

I initiated the request on a Monday. By the end of the week, I had my replacement pair of leggings. This was lightening fast, no-hassle turnaround, so thank you to the Customer Service Representative who handled my issue.

The Jacket I'll confess that I've been wearing the jacket since the day I received it. It doubles as a coverup to wear to my yoga classes and a light jacket for casual outings.

This one is fitted in stretchy white performance fabric with long sleeves for keeping hands warm. The jacket has deep pockets to hold keys, cards and a cellphone.

As I wrote in my initial review, I love versatile athleisure jackets. This one is a great addition to my performance jacket collection.

The Sports Bra Like the jacket, this white sports bra with honeycomb detail has become a staple in my activewear wardrobe. This pretty basic works with everything in my activewear closet.

The detail on the sports bra is unique enough to wear alone and as peek-a-boo interest under looser tops. The fit is snug yet comfortable. I feel okay running in this bra, but Ellie gives it a low impact rating.

The Leggings The promise of Spring is in these capri leggings. They are made of a light performance fabric splashed by a floral print with white insets on the sides for a texture contrast.

Deep pockets for carrying your phone and essentials make these leggings great for casual outings. I plan to wear them on warmer Winter days or for sweaty fitness workouts.

My Favorite Piece My January Ellie box is a winner. My favorite piece, though, is the jacket because of its versatility in my life. This jacket will keep me warm on chilly runs, function as a stylish cover-up to and from the gym and become an athleisure staple for casual outings. #LoveEllie
