    I personally *love* this box! As someone who's barely 5'0", regular-sized clothing just doesn't work – and as enticing as the less expensive childrens' clothing section is, I just can't bring myself to sport a sequin rainbow unicorn tank. The stylists who curate these boxes really know what they're doing, because my wardrobe has been seriously upgraded since I first subscribed and I am loving every minute of it. I also love that you can give individual feedback on each clothing item you receive (including your opinion on prices) so the stylist knows what to throw into your next box while still sticking to your budget.Brittany Gibson
