FabKids Girls Subscription Review + Coupon – December 2019

FabKids (little sister brand to Fabletics and JustFab) is a monthly clothing subscription for boys and girls that allows you to shop in two ways – you can shop the regular store, or you can sign up for their VIP membership. VIP memberships work like this:

  • Take the FabKids quiz for your child (for multiple children you can add a kid) to note their size and style preferences.
  • Each month, FabKids releases a new collection and they will curate looks that match your child’s preferences which you can view in their personalized Fabshop.
  • Shop those looks at 40% off what you’d get just paying retail, or skip the month. You have to make your decision by the 5th of the month. If you do neither, the $29.95 monthly membership fee will be saved to your account as a credit, which you can put towards other outfits later.
  • As you shop, you’ll also earn points that can be applied towards future purchases.

My Subscription Addiction paid for this subscription. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).

FabKids Girls “Pre-Black Friday Deals” December 2019 Review

 

When you sign up they will ask you a few questions about your child: their name, age, clothing size, favorite weekend activity, and which outfit you prefer out of a few options. This helps to personalize your child’s “Fabshop” each month. If you have multiple kids you are shopping for, there is an option to “add a kid.”

One of the perks of FabKids is that they have some great sales and you can really score some fantastic deals if you shop at the right time! This time I received an email a few days before Thanksgiving granting me early access to Black Friday sales which were about 40% off of retail. I had already been eyeing a dress for Liv for Christmas, so I jumped on this opportunity since I know that items do sell out in specific sizes.

While everything was on sale, they basically took it all off as a percentage at the end instead of providing individual values so I don’t have access to the previous sale prices for you, but I’ll try my best to remember and do a little breakdown at the end to show you the savings! Since I did shop early and not in December, I made sure to simply log into my account and skip the month to avoid a December charge! (If you’re forgetful like me, we do post “Pick or Skip” reminders each month, which can be helpful!) Now let’s see what we received!

 

Side Ruffle Bootie – Retail Value $42.00, VIP Cost $29.95

Liv doesn’t have any nicer boots yet and we have had a difficult time finding some to fit her so when I saw these cute booties in pink (her favorite color) I figured we should give them a try! I believe they were marked down to $14 during the sale which is a great deal! I love all of the boots and booties I’ve received from my JustFab subscription and these are the same comfort and quality AND they fit her! She loves them and I am happy she has a cute, dressier pair of boots to wear all season!

 

Fab Metallic Holiday Legging, Size S (6/7) – Retail Value $16.00, VIP Cost $12.95

These leggings were a fun choice that I think are perfect for winter! The detailed pattern features metallic gold throughout and they feel festive and fun. These are comfortable and fit her well, as do most of their leggings and I think they were marked down to either $4 or $6 during the sale?

 

Sugar & Spice Tee, Size S (6/7) – Retail Value $22.00, VIP Cost $16.95

This top was just the right amount of holiday cuteness and it was on sale for $6 (or $8?) so this was an easy choice, especially since I was shopping for just one more thing to get free shipping! It’s just a basic tee, but it fits her well and looks cute with the leggings we ordered.

 

Fab Winter Floral Legging, Size S (6/7) – Retail Value $16.00, VIP Cost $12.95

These leggings fit much like the first pair but feature red and pink florals against a black background. I love that they feel like a pair of winter leggings with the poinsettia flowers, but could easily transition to spring, too! They were also on sale for either $4 or $6.

 

Bell Sleeve Lace Dress, Size S (6/7) – Retail Value $36.00, VIP Cost $29.95

This dress is the one I had been eyeing as the perfect Christmas dress for her! The lace is soft and stretchy and it really is so pretty in person. I love the layered ruffle sleeves and the pleats in the skirt. This is a comfortable dress that still looks nice enough to wear for a special occasion. She loves it and felts so pretty in it! It also pairs well with the winter floral leggings which I wasn’t so sure about from the online photos. This dress was on sale for somewhere between $15.00 and $19.00 if my other estimates are correct!

The Verdict: I was pretty happy with this entire shipment from FabKids this month since I was able to take advantage of their Black Friday sale a bit early! I did go back and do the math and I saved $6.00 by shopping early as opposed to on Black Friday, and while I may have saved a bit more by waiting for Cyber Monday, they did sell out of a few of these items in her size, so it worked out okay for me this time. I think that the difference was pretty minute anyway, so whichever day I shopped, we still got a great deal! We ended up paying a total of $53.89 (including taxes and free shipping) for $132.00 worth of items ($102.75 with VIP prices)! That averages out to about $10.78 per item which is pretty great considering those five items included a pair of boots and a nice dress!

To Wrap Up:

Can you still get this box if you sign up today? Yes! As of publication, these pieces are currently available, but sizing is limited!

COUPON: Get two pairs of shoes from $9.95 + free shipping when you join! No coupon needed - just use this link.

Value Breakdown: The total retail price for these items is $132.00, but the VIP total is $102.75. That’s a VIP savings of about 22%, but with the great sale they had going on, we only paid $53.89 (with taxes and shipping) which is a total savings of about 60%!
