What’s in it? See below

Frock Box is a Canadian clothing subscription service that sends handpicked clothing and accessories right to your door each month. Sizes range from Small to 3XL, so there is something for every woman. To start, take the style survey and tell Frock Box about yourself and your tastes. Frock Box does the rest. 

The following subscription options are available:
  • Frock Box Gold: 2-3 items to create a complete outfit. $59.95 per month ($9.95 shipping)
  • Frock Box Jewel: A handmade piece of jewellery or accessory by a Canadian designer. $29.95 per month ($3 shipping)
  • Frock Box Favourites: 5 individually priced clothing items. Try them at home; keep what you want and return the rest. You are billed only for the items you keep. You are charged a monthly styling fee of $24.95, which counts as a credit towards your purchase that month. Keep all 5 items and receive a 25% discount. Shipping is free (including return shipping).

I last reviewed Frock Box in April 2016. Click here to see my past reviews. I was in need of some new fall clothing, so I thought I would give it another shot!

With Frock Box Favourites, your stylist picks 5 items based on your profile and preferences. The style quiz is very in-depth. Along with selecting pictures of outfits that most closely match your personal style and indicating how you like to spend your free time, you have the option to check off what items you would like to receive and leave out items you don't want.

Your first Frock Box ships within 10 days of your order, and then every month thereafter. 

The insert sheet details each item and provides space for you to mark what you're keeping and what you're returning. It also provides an opportunity for you to leave notes for your stylist. The mailing bag includes a pre-paid mailing label. Once you have tried on your pieces, place the items you don't want into the mailing bag with the feedback sheet, affix the return label, then drop the package off at the post office. Unwanted items are to be mailed back within 5 days (verified by tracking number), otherwise you will be charged for all the items. 

Destiny 101 Tunic with Lace Slit Bottom (Frock Box Price - $44)
This first top was a complete miss. I didn't even had to try it on to know I hated it. I'm not a fan of tunic length tops and I hate the lace.
Verdict - Returned

Umgee USA Washed Sleeveless Knot Top (Frock Box Price - $44)
I like this shirt in concept but there are a few issues. First, it's about two sizes too large. Second, why would I want a tank top in the fall? I want cozy, cold weather clothing!
Verdict - Returned

American Bazi Power Stretch Skinny Cargo Jogger (Frock Box Price - $59)
These pants are hit and miss. I love the skinny cargo style and the cranberry colour. I hate that they are low rise fit. Hello, muffin top! If they were mid-rise, I probably would have kept them, but I also found them for $29.99 US on Amazon so I'm not sure they're worth the Frock Box price.
Verdict - Returned

She + Sky Long Sleeve Ribbed Batwing Cocoon Wrap (Frock Box Price - $54)
I love this sweater. It fits great and it's cozy, but not bulky. The perfect item for fall!
Verdict - Kept

Route 3 Flutter Sleeve Blouse with Necklace (Frock Box Price - $44)
This blouse comes with a detachable necklace. I like the concept but the necklace is an incredibly odd length and looks kind of strange. The top itself is nice, but does nothing for me. 
Verdict - Returned

My October Frock Box Favourites shipment included five clothing items. It was great to try everything in the privacy of my home. I was able to get a good sense of fit and try styling some of the items with other pieces from my closet. In the end, I selected one item to keep and returned the rest. If I had kept all five items, I would have scored a 25% discount, bringing the cost for everything down to $159 plus tax. One item is still a success in my books, since I get to use my styling fee credit. The sweater costs $54, minus the $24.95 styling fee. The cost to me is $29.05, plus tax. Not a bad deal at all, plus free shipping and returns!

  1. I got my first box this month and loved everything! I got a tank too and wondered why it was in a Fall box also. But I wear cardies or shrugs with everything so I wasn't bothered. I just love the blue lace top you hated LOL
