My Spring 2017 Box of Style is here! If you aren’t familiar with them, Box of Style is a seasonal subscription box by Rachel Zoe. It promises to include $300 favorite fashion, beauty and lifestyle items hand-curated by Rachel and The Zoe Report Team. This box launched in Spring 2015, so this is their second full year.
From Rachel Zoe:
For this edition’s box, my team and I focused on highlighting incredible female-founded brands. I couldn’t think of a better season to bring to life our mission of empowering women by living a life in style.
Everything was wrapped in tissue paper which made it extra fun to unbox. Even though I knew what was in the box, I didn’t know what I was unwrapping.
The Spring 2017 Rachel Zoe Box of Style included the following items:
~Adornmonde Open Circle Ear Jackets ($62): Subscribers could choose these earrings in Ivo Gold or Silver. I opted for the silver because I seem to get more gold pieces in subscription boxes than silver pieces. They are nickel-free and brass-plated and would work with so many different styles. The dumbbell drop stud earrings are 25mm while the rear jacket back drop is 34mm. They are big, but not HUGE. Note: Adornmonde was founded by Niki Allworth with the simple purpose to design beautiful, limited edition jewelry.
~Tribe Alive Bag ($238): I am not sure why, but I was expecting this bag to be different? More structured maybe and I thought the fabric would be thicker? Those were my personal expectations though and were based on nothing other than looking at pictures online. I plan on using this bag this spring/summer, but need to figure out how to project the cloth from getting filthy. There has to be some sort of scotch guard spray I can use on it right? Note: Tribe Alive was founded by Carly Burson to utilize her passion for fashion as a platform to help alleviate poverty around women around the world. The partnership with Box of Style employed over 150 Indian artisans in three cities.
~Symbology Scarf ($50): The colors and pattern on here are beautiful! I know I won’t wear it around my neck, but I love the idea of tieing this on a handbag or tote or liven it up a bit! Note: Symbology was founded by Marissa Heyl after a trip to India inspired her to combine her lifelong passion for design with women’s rights.
~Tatcha Polished Gentle Rice Enzyme Powder ($65): This is a daily, gentle yet effective exfoliator, cleanser, and toner for dry skin types. I have used it before (it has come in other subscription boxes) and love it. It’s expensive though which is why I never repurchased. I am thrilled to see this in here and have already started using it. Note: Tatcha was founded by Victoria Tsai and inspired by Geisha beauty rituals and their mantra that less is more.
~BKR Glass & Silicone Water Bottle ($35): Another love! In my world, you can never have too many water bottles, and this will be a gorgeous addition. As silly as it sounds, drinking more water is easier when you have a bottle you like looking at. Note: BKR was founded by friends Tal Winter and Kate Cutler as an antidote to cheap plastic bottles, and the key to skin that glows from the inside.
~Butter London Nail Polish in “Piece of Cake” ($18): This pale polish is everything. Had I not just painted my nails two days ago this would be on them. It’s going to take a few coats, but I will be making it happen soon. Note: Butter London was founded by entrepreneur, Sasha Muir with the help of premier fashion manicurist Nonie Creme as the first healthy nail lacquer.
~Sponsored Item: “Buy A Lady A Drink” Limited-Edition Chalice by Stella Artois ($13): This box also included a Limited Edition Stella Artois Chalice. Every Limited Edition Chalice sold helps provide five years or clean water for one person in the developing world. Sponsored items are designed to be a bonus item and never take away or account for the value of the box. This was one of my favorite sponsored box items of all times. We’ll use the Chalice and love that by including this in the box, Box of Style is spreading awareness and doing some good across the world.
All totaled the Spring 2017 Rachel Zoe Box of Style had a value of $468 (not including the Chalice). WOW! That is an incredible value, and I will be using everything in this box, so it’s a hit with me!
