The folks at The Zoe Report Box of Style graciously sent me the Winter 2016-17 box for a test drive.* The items were gorgeous! The card stock of the box was nice and thick.
Everything came beautifully wrapped
You get a booklet that tells you about the items in your Box of Style, and tips from Rachel Zoe on how to, well, style them. You get beauty tips from RZ, too.
Let’s look at the beauty stuff first. The reason I wanted to try this Box of Style was because the email I got had Box of Style x Sunday Riley as the subject line, and I’ve been dying to try Sunday Riley skin care for awhile. I’ll do a separate post at the end of the week and share my thoughts about it.
I love the candle, hat, and card case. I also love that the candle and card case were created exclusively for Box of Style. I’ve put the candle in my room. It smells like a pine forest. Pine reminds me of the holidays, my favorite time of year.
And the card case has room for business cards, or for your ID and money if you just want to run to the store. It also keeps things organized when you go out at night, and want to carry a smaller bag.
I tend to gravitate toward smaller, under-the-radar brands, so it was fun to discover D.L. & Co., Soia & Kyo, and Dagne Dover. I’d never heard of them before, so I checked out their web sites. They make beautiful things!
The ‘hero item’ is the ‘Zoey’ necklace by Dylanlex. Its look is pretty timeless, if you ask me. It has an adjustable clasp, so it can be styled in a couple different ways. Like the candle and card case, it was created exclusively for Box of Style.
I’d never heard of Dylanlex before, either, so I went onto their web site as well. The Liam bracelet and Sway brooch have that vintage vibe I’m into. They have gorgeous rings, too.
Tell me. Do you like the subscription lifestyle/beauty boxes (eg., Birchbox or Memebox) that seem to be so popular? Do you think they are worth the money? Let’s talk discovery commerce in the comments!
This year, I’m doing the Eyecandy Project 52 photography challenge. Every week, we have to take a picture inspired by a prompt, such as From Above. Some prompts are relevant to the time of year, some are more evergreen. I’m thinking I’ll post my more successful efforts here about once a quarter. Wish me luck!
