Box of Style + Link Ups #H54F

Lately I have been a sucker for fashion and beauty boxes. Part of me is always worried about running out of ideas for the blog, but part of me is also looking for ways to expand my horizons and find new fashion lines. Boutique-ing is a great way to find new fashions, but a beauty box exposes me to things I could not find in my local stores. For a while I have been debating whether I wanted to invest in the Rachel Zoe Box of Style. How do you not love Rachel Zoe and how she put stylists on the map, on top of building a styling empire. I have looked at it a couple of times, but as you can imagine it's not cheap. They ship four times a year, one box per season, and as most boxes work if you subscribed for the whole year they give you a discount. For one year it is $350 or $100 per box. I saw the contents of the summer box on Meet at the Barre and it was gorgeous! Then along came an opportunity to get $10 off a box. I submitted and I got it! I figured I could swing $90 for the one box and then decide from there what was possible or if it was worth it. So I ordered and waited, patiently.

Two weeks ago the box arrived. It was beautiful and all black, so Rachel Zoe it hurts. With Rachel, presentation is everything so I was not surprised that everything was wrapped up perfect. It literally felt like opening a Christmas present and I kept finding new things. I was in fashion heaven! So let's get started shall we?




This watch is so beautiful and I wear it everyday. I have not switched out the bands yet but I love that there are two!! That is always the hard thing about picking out everyday accessories is you want it to work with everything. With both a black and grey band you are definitely covered. I also love the black watch face, which is so different, but surprisingly easy to read. Love, love this!



This is probably what I was  most excited about. I was just thinking I wanted a wool fedora for the Fall. I am obsessed with hats.I will say hats are not always obsessed with me, but it's their too bad because I am wearing it anyway. I can't wait for the temps to cool down so I can be one of those cool fashion girls in fedoras and John Lennon sunglasses. It's going to be great.



Honestly, I have only used this a couple of times. Maybe I need to use it more but I am not 'Tom Cruise on the couch' excited about it. I may try to use it more on my legs as I can never seem to hydrate those enough, especially as the air gets dryer. I will give an update as I try this further.



These are a tie for my second favorite item in the box. I kind of chuckled to myself when I opened these as I just had finished lamenting to a friend about ear climbers. We love and hate them because they never stay in place. I had high hopes the because these had more of a hook that it would secure them in place. Alas, it did not work. BUT they are so cute and actually look cool and purposeful when they hang down. These are a new staple.



These legitimately made me laugh. I love the little phrases on the cover and think they are cute and stylish. I wish had a fancy office to put them in, but my sad little office is not fancy enough for this. I will find a way to use it. I will, I will!



I used this a couple of times on my pillow to see what I thought. It has a fresh, clean linen smell which is one of my top 3 favorite kinds of scents! Heaven, I'm in heaven! This will be great to bring with me (well technically I am on my trip) to keep my clothes smelling new and fresh! Excited to have this arsenal :)




And that's all she wrote she folks! Really loved this box. Debating if I should try my hand at the winter box as well. What do you all think? Do you think this is all worth $100? Leave me a comment below I would love to hear from you!

Always, linking up with these lovelies!
