Denim Cool Beats Outfit: Starting the New Year with FabKids.com

Disclosure: I received a sample product to help facilitate the review. All opinions stated are genuine and my own.

The night before last we met good friends for dinner at a restaurant. Having gone out of town for Christmas this year, we missed our annual 'holiday get-together' with them. This particular set of friends lives a pretty good distance from our home, and consequently we only see them a few times a year. They were pretty surprised to see how tall my youngest has gotten, and they were instantly enamored with the Denim Cool Beats outfit we selected for him this month from FabKids.com.

FabKids Boombox Graphic Tee 

The Denim Cool Beats outfit comes with the long-sleeved Boombox Graphic Tee pictured above. I loved the bright blue on this one, and the retro boombox made it cool for him, and for us! Most people from my generation remember popping a cassette tape into a boombox and kickin' out the jams. That's what this picture reminds me of, and that makes me smile. Those were fun times...and music was the world!

FabKids Classic Straight Denim
in medium wash

The outfit also comes with the Classic Straight Denim bottoms. These pants are heavy-duty denim (great for the winter!), and they come in either light or medium wash. This is the medium wash pictured above.

What sells me on FabKids is not that their selections look great (and they always do!), but that they are made to last. We have a few of their outfits, and each and every one of them has been washed over and over again, with no fading or wear to show for it. That means better value for your money, and who doesn't love that?

Fun options are always integrated into the clothing too-
such as the 'Have a Rad Day' sign printed on the inside of the waistband.

Practical waist adjustment elastic on the inside of the pants.

I also love that FabKids has a built-in waist adjuster (elastic) on the inside of the pants. My son is the right height for his age, but he's very thin. In order to get pants that are long enough for him, but still fit at the waist, I always look for the waist adjuster. That way I can simply pull the elastic on each side, several button notches, and woohoo, a perfect fit (up and down, and around!).

See that box barely visible in the top-left corner?

Back to the restaurant, we had a grand old time visiting our friends. And do you see that gift-wrapped box in the corner of the picture above? You can just barely make it out on the top left...

That box had a remote-control car in it for little man.
Remote control cars, lead to very happy faces in our house. ;)

Inside that box was a remote-control, climb-anything car for a certain FabKids-wearing fab kid that I know. ;) Let's just say, remote-control cars make for happy smiles in our house. :)  That, and our visit last night with grandma and grandpa coming over officially concluded our holiday. It was a long holiday season for us, and a bit unusual at that, considering we traveled, but it was still awesome. I'm happy FabKids was a part of it.


FabKids is a monthly subscription service that allows you to select an outfit of choice, and have it delivered right to your doorstep. Each month you are charged (unless you don't want to be!) the pre-designated amount for an outfit. The credit goes into your FabKids account, and you can order any outfit of choice, when you want to order it. In any given month, if you don't want to be charged for an outfit, you simply note that by the due date (the due date to say you don't want to order anything for the month). There's no obligation or minimum number of anything to buy, ever! And you get what you want, when you want it. It's as easy as that, really, and we love it!

Founded in part by actress Christina Applegate, the FabKids line of clothing is fresh, stylish, and fun. And in addition to that, they've always got some great deals going on over at their website. Right now they're offering 20% off the first outfit or item for new members (membership is free).

He looks great in his new outfit. I do think he's starting to look more like a big kid. It's fun seeing him grow up.

Masshole Mommy said...

What a cute outfit. He is looking so grown up lately (sorry), but he is losing that baby look and starting to look a little older <3

Ben Butler said...

I love his outfit. I don't know about anyone else, but I believe that denim never goes out of style.

Tiffany said...

Love the rad day slogan!

I'm a big fan of kids jeans. These look very quality! Love the outfit

This is a great subscription. I always liked the pants with adjustable waist for my son. We had the same issue with the waist always being too big.

He looks like an all american boy. I know my boys would love that shirt w/those jeans :D

Pam said...

My daughter had to have pants with waist adjusters when she was younger. It was either that, or only pants with an elastic waistband.

Sharon Ruggieri said...

Can't believe I've never heard of this. I gotta get in on it, though my heart did sink a little to read that the boom box is not considered retro ;)

Ronnie E. said...

A little model! :) He's super cute in his jeans and t-shirt. I didn't know about waist adjusters - now informed!

He always looks so nice in his FabKids outfits! They do a good job with what they put together.

Censie Sawyer said...

Great concept!! I love this outfit. Cutie!

Nicole Ramage said...

I've been dreading the day that my baby boy can no longer use the extender sides on his pants, and starts to lose the baby chub cheeks and starts looking like a little boy. Unfortunately it's right around the corner. He just told me that the boombox shirt is awesome.

Elizabeth O. said...

He looks so great in his new outfit! I’m checking this out for the kids!

Jennifer Juro said...

It seems as the kids are getting older its harder to find good clothes for kids. Your little guy is a cutie and I love his outfit!

I love the denim pants, especially the Have a Rad day printed on the inside. These are so mom approved! I love FabKids!

Rebecca Swenor said...

Fab kids has amazing clothes for children indeed. I also love that the pants have an adjustable waist band inside the pants. This was always a plus when I would buy pants for my kids. Thanks for sharing.,

Growing Up Madison said...

Your son always look so adorable in his outfits from Fab Kids. Gotta love Fab Kids with all their cool clothing.

Jade Schwartz said...

What a cute outfit and he is very cute too. For whatever reason I could not make my 12 yr old son wear denim jeans. He said it feels uncomfy. This might fixed his problem. I will check out more of their products.

Shabby Chic Boho said...

What a cute outfit and handsome fellow. Abbys favorite outfit is from Fab Kids and I can't blame her. It's plum cute.

I've never tried shopping at FabKids. But learning that it's affordable, I'm going to check it out the next time I'll shop for my kiddo.

Oh my goodness that outfit is awesome, I love the stitching on the waist of the jeans haha!

I love the entire outfit. The jeans are my favorite. I love that they still have the adjustable waist, too.

I have a hard time finding jeans that fit my son. I'll have to try these out.

nyctalon said...

I shop at their sister site - Fabletics - and can definitely attest to the fact that they make quality clothes - might have to check out FabKids for my nephew!

Heather @ Girl Gone Mom said...

My daughter hates jeans. The only kind I can get her to wear are jeggings from GAP.

Debra Rutt said...

That's such a great kid outfit! My son has never been a big fan of jeans until recently - he'd dig these and the cool boom box shirt!

Maddi'sMommy said...

That is super cute :) I wont buy pants without an adjustable waist for my kids.

He looks so comfortable and handsome! I love their system of credits and automatic shipments

Love the adjustable jeans. Those work great for my boys!

Lesley said...

Same here. My son is so skinny in the waist and long in the legs that the adjusters are great.

Jillian Fisher said...

I totally forgot Christina Applegate has a kids line. I will have to get my boys a couple things!

Angela said...

Your little guy is such a cutie in his new clothes! Really great outfit!

Aimee Fauci said...

God Bless the adjustable waist line! I have read so much about this company and love the variety of of clothing, especially for boys!

Chrystal Mahan said...

I am digging that shirt. Honestly, if they had one in my size I would totally wear it. I also wish my jeans told me to have a rad day too. It would make me feel super special. Who says adults can't have any fun?

Mama to 5 said...

I love that they have adjustable jeans, that is big with me and I only buy them with this feature.

Michelle Martinka said...

He's growing up so fast! What a cute outfit!!

Kelly OMalley said...

It is good to know that the clothing is durable. It is hard to buy clothing only to have it fall apart after just a few wears.

Erika Awakening said...

Man I wish they would make more clothes adjustable like that. Very cute outfit.

Cher Littleton-Megasko said...

I've never heard of this. It's an interesting concept. This outfit looks great on him!

Kendra from Headband for Today said...

I'm checking this out. It seems like a great way to build my son's wardrobe without me having to think about it. :)

Stefany T said...

These are adorable clothes. I keep saying it, but I really need to look into this more!

Taya Elery said...

Very cute clothes. I like the fact that they have the adjustable waistbands.

Michelle Martinka said...

Amen to the waist! Nothing ever fits right without adjusting in our house!

Celebrity VIP Lounge said...

I have heard of this site and I would definitely like to try some of these pieces for my kids. Amber N

Chrystal Mahan said...

Me, too! I want a pair of jeans that say that inside!

Christy Garrett said...

This is a super cute outfit. I know that my kids always need adjustable waists because they are super skinny.

Amanda Ripsam said...

Casa Vilora Interiors said...

What a handsome young man! I love his outfit!

BonBon Rose Girls Kristin said...

I love FabKids! My kiddo has the cutest clothes from there!

Alysia from My Domestic Dish said...

I love this outfit- he definitely does look as if he's having a rad day :P
Those elastic waist adjusters are a God-send eh? I love them! When one snaps though.....ohhhh no. I get so panicked and then I remember, "Oh yeah, when I was a kid, I used a belt" and go to dig one out haha.

Kiwi said...

These are the people from JustFab right? Its cool that they have a kiddie version...he definitely looks stylish in his attire!

Margarita Ibbott said...

I love that you can adjust the pants. My son is pretty skinny so I always need that feature in his clothes.

Manu Kalia said...

I make Fabkids the number 1 online shop for kids apparel I just went to their site and we were amaze on the design. So cute t shirt you have there.

Lisa Rios said...

The boy looks pretty in this outfit. I always choose FabKids for my kids's outfits as well. Great to know that these jeans are adjustable. I love the subscription box idea as well. Thanks for sharing.

Czjai Reyes-Ocampo said...

Love the entire ensemble! Will check FabKids out and view their entire collection. :)

Kay Adeola said...

That outfit is really nice I think the Tee my oldest son would want if he saw it :).

Ann B said...

This is a great outfit. I love the blue color on your little guy. The boombox on the front is great.

Russ R. said...

Oooh, lucky kid getting the denims and the top.
FabKids is one of the trusted brands when it comes to kids clothing. It's stylish ( yup, even for kids ) and is a total value-for-money. My aunts get my cousins a lot of stuff from FabKids.

April Grant said...

My son would definitely benefit from this but he wears uniforms and barely gets use of the clothes in his already packed closet. I love that they are elastic inside because my son is also the right height, but often the pants are too big in the waist.

Stephanie C. said...

Great outfit! haven't heard of this brand, but I think these would look great on my son. will definitely check it out!

Paula Schuck said...

I have been hearing about this brand this, past week or so. Makes me want to check them out. The elastic adjustment on waist bands is golden. I need those.

Felicia Carter said...

These are great clothes. He looks absolutely adorable.

Teresa Moody said...

It's good to see someone try this company. I've been wanting to try them out but didn't know how good they were.

~ Noelle said...

He looks so grown!!!
You are so lucky to get to work with this company... I would LOVE it :)

Debi Gerhart said...

My son's loved denim when they were growing up. They loved it so much they HAD to have denim jackets.

Jaredamy said...

I have still yet to check JustFab out! Not sure why, but your post made me want to check them out now! Heading over!

Erica Bodker said...

Your son is so darn cute. I didn't know that JustFab did kids as well. I will have to check them out.

couponhauls said...

I am a huge fan of Fab Kids. There is no other company that offers good priced trendy items for boys.

Katarina Kovcin said...
