Frock Box is a monthly women’s clothing subscription service. Each month subscribers receive a package on their doorstep with hand picked clothing and accessories based on their profile.
I have an addiction to subscription boxes. I love getting surprises every month – it’s like a monthly gift to myself just because. I often get caught up in doing everything for everyone else in my house that I go without looking after myself so subscription boxes are a fun way to treat myself without having to remember to.
Of course, it’s always a bonus when you can find a great Canadian subscription service for something useful – like clothes! Honestly, I have a ridiculous amount of clothes but none of them fit. They are all my pre-pregnancy clothes and I am not sure if I will ever be a size 3 again. Unfortunately I am not the best at heading out to women’s clothing stores and finding whole outfits that work well together – especially with two kids in tow.
I desperately need a stylist and to update my wardrobe.
You can imagine my excitement when Frock box reached out to me and asked me to check out their service. Basically a dream come true and an answer to my problems.
There are four boxes to choose from depending on your price point and what you’d like to receive.
- Frock box Gold – $49.95 (2-3 outfit items)
- Frock box Platinum – $94.95 (4-5 outfit items)
- Frock box Favourites – $24.95 (5 outfit items. Try it on at home, keep what you want and return the rest. (You are billed only for items you keep))
- Frock box Jewel – $39.95 (one hand-picked jewellery or accessory by a Canadian made vendor)
Shipping is included in the cost of the box too which is really nice.
The sign up process for Frock box is easy enough but involves creating a style profile by entering your personal details including your size and style preferences. You can also choose the types of items you’d like to have sent. Frock box also offers sizing from XS – 3XL !
I had my friend Karen model the clothing I received since I can’t trust anyone with my camera. Thank you Karen!
I ordered the Frock box Platinum and received a dress, leggings, a t-shirt, a cardigan and gloves.
The first item was this My Beloved striped dress which features a horizontal stripe pattern, scoop neckline and quarter sleeves with a cuff. It’s a nice and lightweight dress that pairs well with the black Tri-Union leggings I was sent.
The leggings fit quite well and I have not noticed them sliding down as often happens with tights. They are also fleece lined, seamless and ridiculously comfortable. Perfect for a Canadian winter!
Next up is this super cute Geegee leopard print open cardigan. I love animal print and adore cardigans – so this is basically a match made in heaven. I love the gold shimmer throughout the knit of the sweater. It’s also pretty versatile and can be worn draping and open or you can wrap it up around yourself.
It pairs nicely with the Emma’s Closet t-shirt I was sent. It’s a basic hi-low t-shirt that is both comfortable and quite flattering and its neutral colour makes it a great staple piece.
Last but not least are these chic looking gloves. They are so sophisticated looking, but also soft and warm. The thumb and forefinger have been designed with another material to allow you to use your devices without having to take off your gloves. This of course is a serious problem for me, but I also just like the look of this detail paired with the buttons running up to the wrist.
Overall I am quite happy with my first Frock box. The outfits are flattering and comfortable… and they are outfits! Not just random pieces. While I can’t determine the overall value of the pieces I do feel you get your money’s worth between the pieces themselves, shipping and the fact that they have been styled for you. This is such a great option to get complete outfits at a reasonable price. I actually decided to continue on with another Frock box on my own and can’t wait to see what arrives next month.
