Maybe its just the fashion blogs I read but I've been noticing more and more sponsored reviews as of late. You know the type. The blogger gets something for free and then mostly raves about how great the product happens to be. Now I am totally fine with this. Truth be told I do the same thing in a heartbeat if given the opportunity but sometimes I wounder how genuine the raves are. Its not that I think anyone is being dishonest on purpose but I think its hard for anyone to say less then nice things about a product that they got as a gift.
So in a round about way that lead me to this post. You see a few weeks ago one of the blogs I read was raving about fabkids. Usually I would not have paid much attention to a post about buying kids clothes but Elijah seems to have outgrown 90% of his winter clothing and I just haven't been getting as much sewing done in general this season so I was caught at a weak moment. It also helped that they were doing a buy one outfit for $39.95 get a second free deal meaning I could get each kid one outfit if I signed up. I decided to go ahead and give it a go and figured while I was at it I'd write an unsponsered review here on my blog.
The site has creates a profile for each kid and then recommends a few 3 piece outfits that they think you will like. Sounds nice and it is except that the recommended outfits didn't really suit my kids style as well as some of the other outfits on the sight. Not a problem as you can pick from any outfits not just the recommended ones and I may not have done the best job on the survey being as many of the brands it references are far out of my kids clothes price range. So here's what I picked.
Emily's outfit consisted of a pair of leopard print pants, a cute shirt, and headband. The pants are a little loose at the waist but stay up and have elastic cuffs. The shirt has shoulder ruffles, sequins, and a lining under the applique so its not itchy. I really didn't think a headband would work with her glasses but this one does.
