Wee Blessing Kids Clothing Box Review – October 2017
Wee Blessing is a professional children’s styling service. They send four outfits for each child, based on style and price preferences. When we signed up, Wee Blessing had me answer a pretty detailed bunch of questions to get a sense of my children’s styles.

This Wee Blessing shipment is for both my son and daughter. There were 4 outfits sent for each of them. In our box we received a welcome letter including directions for returning unwanted items, a packing list detailing each item with the price and a mailing envelope to send back any items we weren’t keeping (at no charge).
Wee Blessing also sent an announcement for their new Men’s and Women’s clothing services too!
We’ll start with the clothing that came for my six-year-old son.
Children’s Place Here Comes the Heat Long-Sleeved Tee – retail $16.95 (Wee Blessing price $7)
This 100% cotton tee was a big hit with my son. He likes shirts that have pictures on them, especially if they’re sports, space or animal related. We have shopped at Children’s Place and have found their clothing to hold up and wash well through many wearings.
Gymboree Cuffed Jogger Pants – retail $24.95 (Wee Blessing price $10)
Pants with elastic waistbands are preferred by my son and these were thick and soft. I’m sure he’ll be wearing these weekly all fall and winter. They match nicely with the baseball tee too.
Taylor Vintage Reversible Zip-Up Hoodie – retail $69 (Wee Blessing price $29)
I’ve never heard of the brand Taylor Vintage and was very surprised when I saw that this sweatshirt retails for almost $70! It’s a thinner weight sweatshirt that will be a great layering piece for the fall. My son liked the green color palette and it fit him well.
Urban Pipeline Khaki Jogger Pants – retail $40 (Wee Blessing price $17)
These were the only item in the entire box that we didn’t care for. The thick ankle elastic cuff just didn’t feel stylish. I wish these khakis had been a regular straight leg and they would have been perfect for the upcoming holidays when he dresses up a bit.
Hollywood Burnt Orange Living Cool Bear Tee – retail $18.00 (Wee Blessing price $8)
This is the exact type of shirt we would have purchased had we seen it in a store. My son’s favorite color is orange and he is obsessed with all things “Bear”. The shirt is soft cotton and was his favorite item in this season’s Blessing.
Paper Denim & Cloth Navy Slim Fit Twill Pants – retail $52.00 (Wee Blessing price $24)
I wouldn’t purchase pants for my son at this full-price price point because he just grows out of things so quickly, but I’m thrilled to get Paper Denim & Cloth pants for under $25! These pants have a slim fit without being tight (a must for my son) and are in a neutral grayish blue color.
Tommy Hilfiger Blue Buffalo Check Shirt – retail $39.50 (Wee Blessing price $16)
This thick plaid flannel shirt by Tommy Hilfiger is so warm. I love the red, blue and white colors and my son liked how soft the shirt was. It’s a tad big so we just rolled up the sleeves and hopefully can get two seasons of wear out of this piece!
Polo Ralph Lauren Navy Drawstring Pants – retail $49.50 (Wee Blessing price $18)
The next best thing to elastic waistbands is a drawstring waistband according to my son. These pants looked great with the flannel and fit well too. They had a mid-weight feel to them and deep pockets.
Now let’s move on to the outfits that arrived for my four-year-old daughter.
Lucky Brand Apricot Waffle Knit Shirt 2 Piece Set – retail $55.00 (Wee Blessing price $24)
My daughter loved both the color of this waffle knit tee and the lacy hem detail at the bottom. It came with leggings in a denim-colored blue and style. She loves the softness and mobility that leggings provide while still have that “jeans” look.
Gymboree Giraffe Long-Sleeved Tee – retail $19.95 (Wee Blessing price $9)
This is an adorable tee with an earmuff wearing giraffe asking, “Is it spring yet?” My daughter loved this shirt and though the sleeves were a bit long that’s because I ordered a size up to ensure she can wear these pieces all winter long and into the spring.
Gymboree Fuchsia Playwear Pocket Leggings – retail $29.95 (Wee Blessing price $13)
My daughter loves these bright pink leggings with pockets and a false snap front to give the appearance of pants with the ease of elastic waistband leggings. Pink is her favorite color and these will match most things in her wardrobe.
Gymboree Royal Blue Diamond in the Ruff Shirt – retail $22.95 (Wee Blessing price $10)
This fun shirt had a Parisian feel to it with the royal blue stripes, ruching on the sleeves and beret-wearing dog. My daughter was a little thrown at first that the sleeves were ¾ length and kept yanking on them. Once I explained that’s how they were meant to be she got over it and loved the shirt. The dog is covered in a glittery finish and he’s got a crystal studded diamond on his leg that added a nice touch of bling for my girly girl.
7 for All Mankind Medium Wash Skinny Denim Jeans – retail $55.00 (Wee Blessing price $24)
Wow, 7 For All Mankind jeans! What a great deal to get this high-end brand of jeans that I would never buy for full price for only $24. They have some fading and a nice skinny fit that my daughter prefers her pants to have. These are such a score; we love them!
Jenna & Jessie Amazing Day Striped Glitter Tutu Dress – retail $42.00 (Wee Blessing price $19)
This dress is adorable with the ¾ ruched sleeves, ruffles on the shoulder and gold-heart spattered tutu skirt. The only thing I don’t care for is that it feels thin and a bit cheap because it’s 100% polyester. I’ve found the polyester clothes I’ve purchased before pill up after the first wash and dry in the laundry. So I prefer to buy cotton whenever possible. While I wouldn’t pay $42 for this dress, I think $19 is a very fair price for the cute design and unique details and my daughter loved it.
The kids feel more comfortable modeling together, rather than separately so we took paired pictures for this review. Here they are in some casual outfits they’d wear to school.
Here they are in their more casual and comfy outfits.
Here they are looking slightly more dressed up with jeans instead of sweats/leggings.
Here they are in their dressier looks.
Verdict: This was our favorite Wee Blessing box to date. Almost every single item was a big hit with my kids (and me)! The retail value of the 15 items is over $534. Using the Wee Blessing prices they would be $228, but if you keep the whole box you’d only be charged $205. That’s more than 50% off so the value is absolutely there in my opinion!
My son liked everything he was sent this month other than the khakis and so did I. My daughter loved everything as well. The brands this month were a good mix of more high-end like Lucky Brand, Tommy Hilfiger and Ralph Lauren and less expensive like Children’s Place and Gymboree. I also thought they did a great job of sending a mix of casual, everyday clothing and some dressier options for both kids. What I was most pleased with was that the clothing didn’t come splashed with company names which is something I tend to avoid when buying their clothes and we have seen in Wee Blessing from the past. I feel like they are learning my preferences and doing a great job of meeting and now exceeding my expectations. For $5 shipping and free return shipping I think this is a great box to try for your kids.
