House Of CB Review – Huge Fashion Haul

House Of CB Review – Huge Fashion Haul

Sharing my House of CB review today. I’ve been shopping and buying things online from House of CB http://www.houseofcb.com ever since I stumbled upon some stunning instagram photos. Their fashions are out of control fabulous and I’ve made enough purchases to give you my dead honest review of the quality, pricing, sizing, shopping experience, and even the shipping and size chart. I purchased everything myself with my own $ money, the company has never contacted me to write a review etc. Here’s my Un biased review about House of CB.

I first stumbled upon the House of CB London (CB stands for celebrity btw) while browsing instagram. It was love at first sight, I browsed the website and totally wanted like ten things right away. OMG! Exciting.

Prices

Most things on the website are expensive. I was shocked at first…like hey this blouse costs $157.00 Daaaang that’s expensive! But after closely examining the quality of the blouse online. (they have great photography on their site) I said OMG the quality is AMAZING! The fashions are all dazzling, yes you will pay top dollar rightfully so.

Quality

You’re paying for quality! The quality is outstanding A+. Everything is so well made and gorgeous. I feel like a princess opening their boxes, or a celebrity! I’m always amazed. Stunning fashion every time, and there’s been a lot of “every times” 😉

Sizes

The sizes for House of CB run small.

I’m a 34B and their size small fits me perfectly.

According to their size chart, they recommend that I order a size XS but that’s way too tight!

In my personal experience with blouses and jackets. I used their size chart and match my measurements, however maybe because I have a long torso I needed to go one size up to medium. House of CB offers free exchanges and free shipping on exchanges as long as the garment has not been worn/soiled with makeup etc.

Shipping

You must be present for your delivery. (or have someone sign for you at your address- you cannot have your neighbor sign)

The shipping at House of CB is fast, free and impressive! I ordered this blouse on a Tuesday night and received it Friday afternoon. Shipping is FREE. 🙂 The only thing I hate about the ordering/shipping process is that upon checkout, you have to confirm the fact that a signature is required upon delivery. You cannot request to leave it with a neighbor or have a young kid sign for it either. Your sig is required. It sucks for me because I have to make sure I order on a Tuesday evening because I’m off on Fridays…lol. If you miss a delivery three times in a row, it’s sent back.

There’s also a security wrap around each garment. A white chord that’s there to protect the company in case you want to return an item. If you cut the rope/string you can’t return the item. LOL I love that they do this.

My first purchase, the Saccala Blouse 

This blouse is probably better quality than my wedding gown. LMFAO. Needless to say, I purchased the blouse. BTW all the clothes have a nice name; this blouse is called, “Saccala” $157.00 It’s a dusty pale pink / dusty rose blouse with lace. It’s semi sheer (wear a beige crop top under) short sleeves and cute lace high neck. The intricate sequins is what the website photos lack. The blouse in person is incredible, A+ in person. The sequins sparkle, I really wish the website had a better photo of the sequins! The lace/ sequins are wedding gown quality. STUNNING! This is my favorite blouse in the world! Might leave it in my Will. lol 😉

Unfortunately when I ordered this, it was too small. I used their size guide and I think their clothes run small. I ordered a small and had to get a medium. The small was skin tight and uncomfortable, so glad I went a size up.

My second purchase, the “Suri” the Lilac sheer lace bodysuit

This lilac bodysuit is crazy gorgeous. It’s another piece I fell in love with. The color and lace is jaw dropping. However, I’m 5’7″ and I have a long torso and I don’t do too well with body suits 😉 I wish I also ordered this perhaps in a larger size because of the length issue. I could barely snap on of the snaps. LOL. Grrrr….. I don’t want to sound like I’m complaining, (I should have ordered a size medium, I love it. However, I made it work, wearing high waisted jeans. Yay! I wore a light beige lace bra underneath. It looks amazing. Heads will turn when you wear this sweet body suite out for dinner. lol. Meow. 😉 The lilac color pictured on the left is more accurate in person btw.

My third purchase, the “Dena” Rose Gold Satin Bomber Jacket

This is my new favorite bomber jacket. The color is on trend, rose gold! The satin is so luxurious it’s well made and I adore the small gold accent zipper side pocket and buttons. It’s too cute! I love wearing this jacket with ripped jeans. This color is everything and so hard to find the right shade of “rose gold” This bomber jacket SLAYS. It’s dressy/casual and so fun to wear.

Notice how the dena jacket is a nice muted color. Not too pink. Perfect for Fall colors! Elegant color! 🙂

My fourth purchase, the “Fabienne” Rose Gold Satin Duster Coat

You’re probably thinking, holy cow, how much stuff did she buy? Yes… lots. lol. Ok, I HAD to have this duster coat. I said I wasn’t going to buy it because I didn’t think it would be a practical color but OMG I was soon wrong. This is an amazing satin duster coat that I can’t live without now that it’s in my life. I love wearing this out to dinner over my dress. It’s so fancy! Very well made like everything else and the color and silky look to this jacket is mesmerizing. The photo of the model wearing it looks like it’s a thin material but it’s not. It’s a lot more heavier, structured and solid. The color is not the same rose gold as the Dena jacket above, it’s a little more rosey and brighter. Lovely. I caught a group of girls checking out this jacket and overheard them talking about well made jackets… 😉 This jacket is stunning! I’m so happy I got this jacket. I honestly couldn’t stop thinking about it and checking it out online since I saw it.

My fifth purchase, the “Coryn” Rose Gold Silky Duster Coat

This jacket has some amazing sheer sleeves. This coat looks so sexy, yet you can wear it with anything. The neutral rose gold color is so flattering on everyone. I love wearing this to work over my blouse and pencil skirt. I also wear it on the weekends with ripped jeans and pumps. So comfortable and effortless style. It really is well made. You will have to throw this in the dryer to release the wrinkles occasionally. lol. The color is accurate on the left down in the photo below.

My sixth purchase, the “Rei” Blush High Neck Bandage Dress

(This is the famous blush pink dress worn by Nikki Glaser wore to the Roast of Rob Lowe September 6, 2016)

This dress will accentuate your curves and nip/tuck right where you want it. 😉 This dress will give you a booty! This thick luxurious material wraps you tightly and securely 😉 This is one elegant and sexy dress. The high neck was a tad too long for me, I need to get it altered but it’s fine. The dress has a nice shimmer. It’s perfect for any occasion! I actually wore this with my pink “fabienne” duster coat. I also wore beige pumps and beige COACH purse. I love this dress. I can’t wait to find an excuse to wear it again soon. I wore this in Las Vegas at the Wynn for a fancy dinner there at the SW. Yes, I did receive compliments from guests 😉

House of CB dresses are so sexy and on trend. They have a dress to accentuate your body type, from bandage dresses, bodice dresses, two pieces, bandage dresses, structured, loose, and maxi dresses. You’ll find something unique and fall in love just like I did.

My overall shopping experiance at houseofcb.com

I love seeing “what’s new” OMG, they’re always making my jaw drop. I also love seeing people on instagram share their outfits they purchased #houseofcb . I’m happy with the company and they’re doing a great job in my opinion. I will be taking more photos of myself wearing these outfits. I have lots of photos / selfies I shared on my snapchat (elegancebyjen) and on  my instagram: (freshjen). however the quality of the my photos with my camera phone are not great quality. So I’ll be taking new pix soon! 🙂

People have asked if the House of CB ships from London, here’s my shipping screenshot:

From the United Kingdom to my house in San Diego, CA. USA

  1. Hey, stumbled on your blog whilst searching for reviews on the Coryn rose gold duster jacket..because I was sitting on the fence about purchasing this due to not knowing the quality of this jacket. Based on the images i’ve seen online, i think this jacket is priced absolutely reasonable, as I was expecting it to cost a lot more. If its okay with you, would you be able to tell me which size in the Coryn duster did you end up going with? Their site states that it is true to size and do not go up or down sizes, but then you said they run small, and i’ve never bought anything from H of CB and really want to be sure prior to ordering because i never bother to return items that don’t fit. I’m inbetween sizes and not sure whether to order size XS(2-4US) or S(4-6US) I’m hoping you will reply! as ill hold off on putting an order in until then. Thank you! (btw I love all the items that you bought, especially the lace short sleeve top, and the duster coats!)

    • Hi Leah!
      The Coryn rose gold duster is my favorite jacket! I purchases a size XS.extra small. Honestly it’s perfect for my shoulders, the size chart is good but for the tops I go one size up. Jackets I stay true to size. I prefer draping this jacket on my shoulders paired with a cocktail dress. Heck, this jacket makes any outfit look SLAYED. 🙂 I’m a 34/b and this jacket is perfect for me in size small. I’m a US size 4 or 5.
      I have been shopping house of CB for 6 months now, if you love the jacket and it’s in stock for your size, get it. I’ve missed this jacket before and had to wait for it to restock. Good luck!!!

  2. Hey Im a size 36b and im 5’2 134 pounds and in pants I wear about a 27 or 28 but my tops usually are a small Im really confused on what size I should get in a dress

    • Hi Honie,
      The tops from House of CB run a little small. I’m a 34B and I had to get a size small. From their chart, they recommend XS for me but it’s too tight. Especially if you wear a pushup bra go a size up!
      Jen

  3. Hey, i wanted to order the dena rose gold bombet jacket. I noticed in some of the photos of the jacket without models it looked more tan/beige. How do you find the colour does it look more tan/beige in person or does it look rose gold like the the pictures the model shows?

    Thanks in advance!

    • Hi Antastasia,
      Correct, it’s a neutral , muted color more tan dusty rose. It’s not a classic “rose gold” not like the long Fabienne duster coat. Honestly at first I wasn’t crazy about the color but it’s perfect for Fall/winter. It’s very elegant and my favorite bomber. I hope that helps.

      • Do you have any pictures of it that you could post? It looks like the perfect shade of rose gold on the models but more neutral when its shown by itself. I notice the same thing when I look at the Coryn rose gold duster coat. It would really help me decide as I only have pictures from their official website. Thanks in advance 🙂

  4. Well, this is great when you are a happy customer. I’ve purchased some bandage fabric leggings and the zipper came apart the first half of the day I worn them. Company refused the refund and doesn’t reply to me anymore, I’ve been blocked on their FB page from posting bitter comments; so watch out – refunds are non existent in house of CB, they hate to give you your money back and customer services are simply suck. Disappointing, asinine really as they will be nobody without simple customers like you and I. Company that claims to dress up celebrities with a very cheap morals indeed. I am not the only one

    • Hi Lena,
      I have not had any bad experiences shopping house of CB so I’m shocked to hear you had a bad customer experience. Their return policy is strict I think because each item is very expensive. Everything is un returnable once you cut the tag. That’s horrible about the zipper though! Their clothes see so high quality. I hope you can get your zipper fixed asap! xo

  5. Hi Jen your blogpost is amazing!! I have a question about the suri bodysuit. How small does it run? Can you please upload a picture of the bodysuit on your instagram so I can see how the fit looks on your body type. Thank you <3

    • Hi Jessica!
      Thanks, I’ll post my pix on here soon. The color of the body suite is more blueish purple than what I expected. I have a long torso, I’m 5’7″ and I can BARELY snap it closed LMAO. Plus I have some junk in the trunk LMAO. I recommend you order up a size from what is recommended on their size chart. It’s a GORGEOUS bodysuit regardless. I purchased size small and the fit is perfect, I went a size up from their size chart. I cannot wear low cut jeans because the sides of the bodysuit sneaks up the side.
      Jen XO

  6. Hello,
    Hopefully someone can answer this question. Has anyone noticed a pattern or during what times house of CB does their 3 for 180 sales? Those are amazing and I’ve been waiting for one to come around so I could snag a bunch of stuff!

    • THEY’RE HAVING ONE NOW

  7. Hello am 5,8 and I am 166 pounds I want try there jeans am usually 10 but scared I am just to fat for this store

    • Hi Paloma,
      I don’t think they’re known for their jeans. In my experience purchasing from house of cb, ALWAYS go up a size in whatever clothes you’re purchasing. Their size chart is skin tight lol. I hope that helps.

  8. This place is a SCAM! So i bought this dress. It had a card that said can’t be returned/exchanged if any makeup, oil etc is on it. So i tried it on right when i got out of the shower, it did not fit… and that was that. I returned it to exchange it for a different size.

    I hadn’t received any sort of email confirmation about my exchange. So I emailed and they said they’d look into it. I get an email back saying there are sweat marks on it and security tags tampered with and that I’ve worn it!! THEM: “However, I have been advised by our return team your item shows signs of being worn (sweat marks on back and chest areas) and our security tags looks like it has been tampered with.”

    Ummmm hello!!! it did not fit! Which is why I wanted to exchange it! Complete BS!!!

    DO NOT ORDER FROM HERE. Read the reviews, i wish i did before ordering. Apparently they do this all the time. Refuse to exchange or refund and claim there are stains. It’s their shtick! That’s $160 thrown away!!

    • Wow, That sounds bizarre.
      They do have a very strict return policy. However, when regarding the average price of one item is at least $100. I can understand this from a luxury online store such as House of CB. If I received an item that looked like it was returned and had looked like it was tried on or stretched, I’d be pissed.
      Their security tag is a long thick ribbon that is secured by a gold stapled button. If that’s tampered with, the return is void. They have a lot of precautions explaining all this when you’re shopping online. Also in the paperwork they give you in the shipment.
      I recommend you always order one size up from their size chart, otherwise it will be skin tight.

      Sorry to hear your unpleasant experience.
      Jen

  9. Has anyone bought any denim? How do they run?

  10. Hey, you seem to have had a great experience with house of Cb however most of the reviews online have been rather negative, just wondering your views on this as you seem to be one of the few with a good experience regarding House of CB.

    • Hi Emilie,
      I love the quality and fashions there. The only thing I strongly recommend is that you go a size up in their size chart unless you want super skin tight clothes. I hope they adjust their size chart. Other than that, I wish recommend their clothes.
      Jen
