When Rachel Zoe’s The Zoe Report came up with their own subscription box offering two years ago, aptly called ‘The Box of Style’, I was able to resist.
The price was $99 but it guaranteed that the items would cost at least $300. Paying 1/3 of the price, not a bad deal at all. Yet, I hesitated. I wanted to wait and see how the curation process went and if subscribers were receptive to the selected items.
The feedback was generally positive.
There were hats, sun glasses, tote bags, jewelry, and fashion staples, such as a stylish and comfy cape, that reflected Rachel Zoe’s bohemian chic.
But whenever I would say “Ok, I am going to give them a try”, the box of style given at a particular season would be sold out. It would happen so fast. So I would have to wait for the next one, which comes in the following quarter.
But not every box of style is something I would covet.
I recall seeing this Spring 2017’s offering, which had a tribal print bag, a candle, BKR glass bottle, nail polish, a scarf, nail polish, and a pair of earrings. They look really nice, but I decided to pass. I was not keen on the handbag and I already had a BKR glass bottle.
I had a similar sentiment with this past Summer 2017 box. It had a kimono, large sunnies, sunblock, necklace, lipstick, and a straw Panama hat. They were cool pieces, but I had too many similar items already.
And finally I get an alert that they have two spoiler reveals for the Fall 2017 box. I immediately checked it out.
A leather cross-body bag that converts into a laptop case. AND it has a beautiful dark navy blue color with a striking tassel! AND it is made by Gigi NYC, a premier New York Handbag designer. Oh wow! The retail of this piece is $195.00.
And then the second reveal is a pair of La Soula rings with two diamond accents on each side. These rings are made to be worn as a stack or to enhance the other rings in your finger. They are easily adjustable. They retail for $176.
If you are not familiar with La Soula, this is a quintessentially chic yet affordable line of diamond jewelry by designer Kimberly DeTomasi. Famous Hollywood celebrities and Singers, like Jennifer Lopez, Chelsea Handler, Carrie Underwood, Selenis Leyva, Morena Baccarin, Victoria Justice, wear her line.
Both items alone cost $371. Whoa! And yet there are 4 more items in the box. That means the Fall 2017 Box of Style will be the biggest and most luxurious box yet!
Did I get one?
Of course! And guess what? It is nearly sold out already. The Box of Style allows you to select the color of La Soula ring you want (Silver, Rose Gold, or Gold). Both the Silver and Rose Gold are already sold out with only the Gold remaining. I personally think any color would do. It is actually very stylish to wear mix metals on your fingers.
So I finally became a subscriber and I could not be more excited! My Box of Style ships out this month! So do expect an un-boxing post very soon!
