Today, we wanted to chat about how to make your Frock Box subscription work the best for you! While this service offers new styles and an element of fun each month, we realize it’s not always for everyone. Trusting your personal stylist to make choices based on your size and taste can feel daunting, and we want to make the experience as seamless as possible for you! All we ask in return is that you try things on with an open mind – you never know which piece will end up working for you until you try!
Below, our Stylists have compiled some tips on how to get your best box yet!
Our number one tip for getting styles that are suited to you, is to provide an up to date Pinterest board! Pinterest is such a valuable tool in our business, it’s where we go to see what new styles we should bring in and what’s trending. We even wrote a separate post on how to make your Pinterest page work for your subscription – check it out here! When seeing your pins, we look for common themes like colour palette, types of clothing and pairing options. We highly recommend making seasonal boards, since the palettes and styles you’d like for Fall are sure to change for your Summer wardrobe! Your boards are also a great indicator of what’s popular among subscribers, so that we can buy product that you’re wanting!
Our first glimpse into each subscriber is all the info in your Style Survey. Here’s your chance to really introduce yourself and your life! We love hearing about what your day to day is, so that we can envision how your wardrobe needs to work for you. If you feel like you’re writing too much – you aren’t! It’s all so helpful!
On your feedback forms that you receive in your box each month, there’s space to write out comments on each piece. We love receiving these back, filled out in detail, so that we can learn what works and what doesn’t for your style! The more precise you can be, the better picture we’ll be able to make about what it is that you’re looking for. Language can be tricky when it’s only through written form, so the more details, the better! We also recommend reaching out to your Stylist via email if there’s a wish list you have in mind for your wardrobe, a special occasion coming up that you’d like pieces for, or just to touch base about the items you’d like to receive! You can contact your Stylist via email at [email protected] – we love hearing from you!
While our goal each month is to fill your Frock Box with styles and pieces you’ll love, sometimes fit and styles don’t quite work. That’s all part of the process! Especially for new subscribers,as it can take a few boxes for your Stylist to get a real sense of what you’re looking for and how we can style pieces that you’ll love. We like to think of our process as a changing room, taking in 5 different pieces and hoping for some keepers! An advantage of this subscription is that since you’re trying on the items in the comfort of your own home, you’re able to play dress up with the pieces you already have in your closet! Maybe a pairing piece we sent wasn’t quite right, but you have something similar in your wardrobe that makes the outfit work – we call this a major win! When shopping at the mall, sometimes it can be hard to envision how a piece will work within your wardrobe – wonder no more, Frock Box allows you to try pairing it right away!
