Disclaimer: I was not compensated for this post. I receive complimentary products for review purposes. All opinions are my own.
I’m bombarded daily by emails to sign up for them. There are ones for makeup, shaving, teas/coffees, spices, jewelry, fitness, T-shirts, hosiery, baby, gourmet foods, healthy snacks, candy, crafts, wine and even ones for pets!
But the one that caught my eye was kidpik, a new subscription box that delivers personalized outfits designed exclusively for the girl, sizes 4 – 14, in your life and tailored to your budget. Now while I like to dress nice, I in no way claim to be a fashionista, so picking out clothes that are not only on trend but items that my six-year-old tomboy-ish daughter likes and will actually wear is always a challenge. So having a hand-pick stylist outfits, shoes, and accessories based on my daughter’s style profile was definitely intriguing.
The first thing we had to do was fill out a fashion profile that was pretty extensive. My daughter and I had fun filling it out together and I actually learned a lot about her tastes and sense of style. The profile was an interactive survey that after getting some basic details (top, bottom & shoe sizes), asked very specific questions about my daughter’s fashion likes and dislikes including colors, patterns, and types of clothing. For example, she might like dresses, but not skirts. She might like patterns and not solid colors.
It even asked her preference of dress/skirt length and jeans/pants fit.
Then to help them better understand her personal style we selected outfit examples that she liked from 5 different categories – Classic Chic, Trendista Junior, Girly Glam, Always Active and Miss Modest. I liked that you had the ability to select outfits from more than one category rather than narrowing it down to one.
The last item of the survey was to select the stores she likes to shop at.
We hit the send button and then all we had to do was wait for the kidpik box to arrive in the mail filled with approximately six high-quality fashion items designed to complete multiple mix and match outfits to match my daughter’s style!
My daughter was so excited when the box finally arrived, but I’ll be honest, I was a little apprehensive because I was not entirely convinced that she’d like any of the items the stylist-curated just for her. Here’s a video of her opening her kidpik box:
Appealing to my daughter’s sportier side – Fifty-Three Mesh Tee in white and Mesh Shorts in Neon Pink
For an on-trend look – Surf Sunshine T in Galvanized Gray & Rainbow Ombre jean shorts
For a dressier look – Tropical Romper in Black with Marcey Glitter Sandal in Blush
And perfect to wear with any of her outfits, a pair of flag aviators.
I couldn’t believe it; my daughter LOVED every outfit, including the sandals. Her kidpik box was a total home run!
So naturally, you’re asking, how much did all this personal styling & outfits cost? The styling was FREE, yes, I said FREE. And the cost for a box all depends on what items you decide to keep and what you send back (which they pay for). You have seven days to decide, and you only get charged for the pieces you decide to keep. The average cost for an entire box is $100, which is around $12.50 an item. If you decide to keep the entire box, you get a 30% discount – which brings it to around $70.
Pretty amazing, right? So I asked how can kidpik do that. Turns out that kidpik designs and produces all of their apparel, shoes, and accessories, which is the RUUM line of clothes. That is what gives them the flexibility and ability to deliver the best value to the customer and ensures the consistency in quality and fit of the clothes for the wearer.
kidpik offers three different frequency options. You can do a one-time trial box to see if this is for you; one box per season (4 per year) and two boxes per season (8 per year). There’s no commitment of any kid, and you can pause or cancel your account at any time.
The total price for all the items in my box, if bought separately would have been $93.50, but since we decided to keep all the items, we saved 30% bringing the cost down to $65.45. I thought that for the quality of the items, the styling service and free shipping (both ways), it was really a great value. kidpik took the difficulty, time and guesswork out of shopping for my daughter – and she has clothes she truly loves – I can’t wait for the fall box to get here!
Now it’s your turn to share. How would you describe your or your child’s personal style?
