If you have a little girl, chances are you (like me) have succumbed to the draw of the adorable fashion options available for her these days. Jeggings, leggings, and sparkly shoes....ah, just delightful. It makes it even better that Addie has already developed a love for tutus, ruffles, and things that shine - so we get to play dress up in our everyday life.
However - taking a one year old to the clothing section of a store is not an ideal activity. She is a little bit greedy - points to everything and screams if I don't hand over what she wants. So while we take some time to work on gratefulness and not being selfish, I was happy to find another shopping option: FabKids!
FabKids is the newest fashion club from JustFab. It was started by a team of parents including mom/actress Christina Applegate and it's a convenient way for parents to shop.
How does it work? It's an outfit club, which means that every month, parents can select an affordable, high-quality outfit for their kids.
I'm not much for buying clothing online for myself - I just don't trust the fit - but shopping for kids is a little easier since their sizing is more standard. FabKids currently offers kids clothing in sizes 2-12. Each month's outfit includes 2 pieces for $29.95. That's a little more than my normal clothing budget, since I tend to shop clearance racks and consignment sales, but if you are looking to save time and find the latest fashion for your little one, I think the price is more than fair. If you purchased a full price two-piece outfit at a fancy baby retailer, it would almost certainly cost more than that.
For Addie, we were sent the ikat dress - which features a snazzy black and white print - plus a pair of coordinating yellow leggings. Can I just take another moment to rave about baby girl leggings. The cutest.
Addie thinks that this outfit is excellent, primarily for its twirly capability. The tunic dress has a very flared skirt that even I admit would be perfect for spinning. I love the accent of the yellow leggings against the black and white pattern - it's a very trendy, yet also kind of retro look.
Addie has been consistently wearing size 18-24 months and 2T this summer, so we ordered a 2T for fall. It is just a tad big (mostly in the shoulders), but I think it should fit perfectly as we move into the fall/winter season.
Since FabKids is an outfit club, when you sign up, you are agreeing to be charged each month for an outfit. You have until the 5th of each month to "skip the month" and avoid the $29.95 charge. After your $29.95 is charged, you're given a credit to the website and you can pick whichever 2-piece outfit you like the best!
Wouldn't a subscription to this service make a fun gift for a girl who is a little bit older? Imagine how cool it would be for a kid to pick out their own outfit each month and wait for the bright pink box to show up with their selection inside? Don't worry, it's not just about the girls....boxes for boys are blue!
All orders over $49 ship for free, so if you have multiple kids and want a subscription for each, you would be locking in free shipping on those orders, too.
We adore this outfit and think the subscription service is super cool. It's not in our budget right now to have outfits delivered every month, but I am for sure watching for each month's new look book to see if there are any must-haves for Addie's wardrobe!
