For years now I’ve been longing for StitchFix to ship to Canada so when I heard that a similar business started up just down the highway, I jumped at the chance to try it out.
Frock Box is a personal styling service that ships hand picked items right to your door. No more hauling the kids to the mall or suffering through terrible change room lighting. How does it work? When you create your profile, you answer a few questions and describe yourself and your style. Your stylist will choose some items based on your preferences. Once you receive your items, you can decide what you want to keep and what you want to send back. You pay for what you want to keep and if you keep the entire package, you get 25% off. Plus, your subscription fee goes towards your purchases. There is no charge to ship anything back. You just pop it into the package it came in, reseal it and drop it off at the post office. Even for a busy mama like me, it was an easy process to make the returns.
I received the Favourites Box, which got me 5 handpicked pieces for $24.95. Please excuse my awkward, sub-par self-timer photos, haha.
(the fifth piece is the jean leggings I’m wearing as well)
Everything fit perfectly with the exception of the maxi dress which was too long for my short self. This was a pleasant surprise because I have a really hard time with sizing with my post-baby body. I really, really loved the twist back top but wasn’t really in love with any of the other pieces and I ended up sending all of the pieces back. I already had a very similar top to the black tunic and everything else was too casual as I’m hoping to acquire more pieces that are work appropriate but can be dressed down for weekend wear as well. This doesn’t discourage me from continuing with the subscription because I realize it will take some time for my stylist to get to know my style. My only wish for the service is for the option to update your profile with your tastes, etc. You can email them your feedback, however.
I love that they source their jewellery from Canadian vendors and that they’re located right here in Alberta. #shoplocal for the win. Also, they have a shop to buy individual pieces from past boxes, including that twist back top I’m wearing!

Disclaimer: I received my Frock Box free of the styling fee in exchange for my thoughts. All opinions are my own, because I think this is a seriously great Alberta company.
