Our New Summer Outfit from FabKids.com!

Disclosure: I received an outfit from FabKids.com to help facilitate this review. All opinions stated are genuine and my own.

His new June outfit from FabKids.com

I posted about FabKids.com during the school year (if you're interested, you can find that post here). FabKids is an awesome clothing subscription service started by a group of moms that include famous mom, Christina Applegate. The service offers an outfit credit to you each month for $29.95. You don't have to use the credit right away, and if you let them know by the date designated each month, that you don't want an outfit, you can skip paying for the credit all together. It's all totally up to you!  If you do decide to use your credit, you can select any two pieces to form an outfit that you like (or agree to have the one shipped that they suggested-the outfit above is one that was suggested). Then all you do is sit back and wait for the pretty box to be sent to your door.

He's a very active little boy (who is also going through a phase of sticking his tongue out for pictures).
He needs high quality clothes that let him move.

When starting a service subscription with FabKids.com, you'll take a short quiz in order to get suggestions for your outfits. I have an active 6-yr old boy, and you can see from the photo above that they suggested the perfect outfit for him. A nice cool (haha, figuratively and literally speaking too, since it says 'Mr Cool' on it), soft t-shirt that gives him some room to move (and boy, does he move) was selected for his top. And some classy lightweight shorts that can be dressed up or dressed down were selected to finish the look. You can use your credits any time you want to get any two piece outfit, and it can be one they suggested, or one you like better instead.  For us it's a fabulous service because my son outgrew all of his summer clothes from last year!! All of them. With FabKids, there's no need to drag him to the store to try on outfits (something he's not overly keen on anyway) when I can just pick and choose what I like online, and have it delivered right to our front door (they guarantee easy returns too, though we haven't had to return anything we've received). 

'Mr. Cool' got to select some sparklers to help celebrate the upcoming holiday.
It was an idea that turned out to be particularly appealing to him. ;)

A couple of days ago, I took little man to the store in his new outfit.  Since the shirt says "Mr. Cool" on it, I thought we should do something cool. With the Fourth of July just around the corner, I thought it would be fun to let him pick out some sparklers (when you're 6-yrs.-old, that's very cool!). It turned out to be a great idea. ;)

My son is still in that mixed sizes stage (his shirt is a bigger size than his shorts), but that's okay, you can mix and match whatever you want (style and/or size) at FabKids.com.


FabKids.com has clothes for girls and boys, and they often have great sales going on too. Right now they have a $10 pants sale going on that I'm about to go check out myself. There's a $10 dress sale going on too, if you have a little girl. ;)

If you join now, the first outfit is just $15 + free shipping! Individual styles start at $9.95.  You can learn more about the fun (and very useful/convenient) service by visiting their website.

You can also follow them on Facebook, Twitter, and/or Pinterest.

Love that cool outfit! I like that you don't have to use the credit right away. I don't tend to buy clothes for my son every month, and when I do, I'm usually shopping online.

This is cool! My boys would like it because they hate shopping and my girls would like it because they'd get a box of cuteness in the mail.
Subscription boxes are so in right now!

O Rosey, Great post and great video. I love seeing footage (behind the scene stuff) Glad you were in on it. Have a great weekend. I don't feel any symptoms yet and my dr said I could have the original meds & that should be a big improvement on me. Now just #5 July and #6 in August. DONE! CANT WAIT!!! ♥, Renae

We used to belong to a service like that... but for us, I just buy when something grabs my eye, so this wasn't the way for me... (and I am also a big sales hunter. ha haha)

Michelle Martinka said...

Such a cool outfit for such a cool kid- AND he looks comfortable in them- most important when dressing our kids!

Christina Shirley said...

Very cool! I always think about FabKids for girls, but I need to remember they have boys stuff too!

Ms. Latina said...

Love that Mr. Cool tee! He is totally rocking it. And, those prices are phenomenal. I always saw it as a waste to spend tons on kids clothes since they outgrow it so quickly, which makes the FabKids prices so attractive.
