Rockets of Awesome Girls Clothing Box Review – November 2016
Rockets of Awesome is a quarterly clothing and accessory personal styling service for kids. There is no upfront styling fee, and you pay for whatever you’d like to keep.
When you sign up for Rockets of Awesome, you answer a few questions to help their merchandising team understand what your kids like and dislike. Based on your answers (and using an algorithm) they hand-select items for your child. So your box will look different than mine!
This box was sent to us for review purposes. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes.)

Opening this box was so much fun for my daughter. The box itself has designs inside, perfect for coloring. There was a welcome booklet personalized with simple directions for returning unwanted items. Each box comes with a price sheet listing each item of clothing and price. Rockets of Awesome designs and manufactures their own independent line of clothing (sizing available in 2-14).
Long Sleeve Stripe Mix Top – Price to keep: $28
This shirt is fabulous. My daughter loved the fit and design. It was soft cotton with a bit of stretch and then a contrasting ruffle hem that added length making it perfect for leggings or skinny jeans. Plus pink is her favorite color!
Long Sleeve Flounce Tee – Price to keep: $28
My daughter loves this gray t-shirt. The contrasting white fabric at the hem is flowy and lengthens the shirt making it ideal for skinny pants.
Long Sleeve Oolala Tee – Price to keep: $22
Oolala! My daughter calls this her eyeball shirt and thinks it’s hysterical! The cobalt blue is a gorgeous color and the cotton is soft.
Leopard Leggings – Price to keep: $16.00
These pink leopard print leggings have gold glitter on them and fit my daughter well. I think this print is so cheery and fun! These are a size 4/5 and she just turned 3 years old. I don’t imagine these would fit her in a year though so I would say order up a size for your child when it comes to pants.
Long Sleeve Pocket Tee – Price to keep: $18.00
This pocket tee has a hi-lo hem which I think is a great detail. It’s soft and lightweight. This will be a great layering piece when the temperatures drop.
Deep Lake Long Sleeve Glitter Hem – Price to keep: $28.00
This deep blue sweatshirt is a thick knit with a sparkly tulle hem. The hem detail really makes it special and fancy. This top was slightly more form-fitting than the other tops that arrived this month.
Metallic Skirt – Price to keep: $24.00
This skirt is too large for my daughter right now, but I’m sure the way she’s growing it will fit within the year. It’s unique and shiny!
Skater Skirt – Price to keep: $22.00
This skirt is also way too big for my daughter right now, but we love the style. The basic black will go with so many of her tops, but the flounce gives it some extra style so it’s not boring.
Stripe Tulle Dress – Price to keep: $36.00
This was our favorite item in the box. My daughter fell in love with it just as much as the dress Rockets of Awesome sent in our previous box. The gray and white striped top is thick and warm like a sweatshirt. The skirt is neon pink tulle which is beautiful. I love the pink zipper detail down the back as well.
Pull-on Jegging – Price to keep: $24.00
These pull on jeggings are stretchy and comfortable for my daughter. They are a great neutral pair of pants we will be reaching for frequently.
Heart Crossbody Bag – Price to keep: $16.00
What a fun purse; it’s covered in white iridescent glitter with googly eyes and even eyelashes! My daughter has been carrying it around non-stop with her plastic cell phone and brush.
Metallic Stripe Sweater – Price to keep: $28.00
I’m so happy to see a sweater included in the box because winters here in NJ are very cold. This black sweater has silver stripes and was soft and slouchy.
Here is my daughter in the striped sweater and leopard leggings. Some of the items in this box didn’t seem to go as well together as last time so I’m sorry if these outfits aren’t matching that well! I just tried to have fun with it and let her be spunky.
Here’s my daughter in her striped and tulle dress. She told me she is a princess when she wears this dress!
Oolala shirt with eyeballs!
Flounce tee and leopard leggings.
Here is my daughter wearing the jeggings, pocket tee, and crossbody bag.
This is the skater skirt (held up with a binder clip at her waist!) and the sparkly hem sweatshirt.
Striped shirt and jeggings.
And finally, the silver skirt which was swimming on her and the striped sweater. I tucked in the sweater to try to keep the skirt up and also to show off the cute pink waistband!
Verdict: We had a lot of fun unpacking and modeling our Rockets of Awesome box. Rockets of Awesome sends boxes four times a year, but you can skip a box if you prefer to get them less frequently. Shipping back the items you choose not to keep is made simple with their pre-paid return label. Based on the colors I had mentioned my daughter likes when I initially signed up and the kinds of clothing she wears (girly, sparkly, and fun) I felt they sent us items that were a perfect match. Everything is very well made too with thoughtful details. We sized up for my daughter for this box and some of the items are large on her, but the 2/3 were too small last time around so we seem to be in between sizes at the moment. Rockets of Awesome sends unique, fun clothing that my daughter loves and I definitely recommend this subscription for your young fashionista.
