Rachel Zoe – 2018 Summer Box of Style

Hello Hello!!! So yes it is summer now and I know it has felt like summer much longer than when the actual season started but that is how the weather works now.  The beginning of the season means that Rachel Zoe is sending out her Box of Style.  I believe it is still available if after I show you all this stuff and you are interested.   I will say that I love the products in this box.

Beach Cover Up

So I finally had a pool day and had time to really try all this stuff out.  I love this cover up.  The white color is amazing, I love how lose it and how light and airy it is.  It was over 100 degrees these weekend and while wearing this over a pair of jean shorts (right) I didn’t even feel over heated.  It was really great.  It also looks really great if you want to wear it somewhere other than the beach.  Since it is so lose and flowy if you wear it with jean I would tuck it in the front.

The detail up on the front is really nice, makes the top very unique and separates it from all the other white beach cover ups out there.  This is a Bindya Lace Cover Up.

Straw Beach Bag

This is a straw bag that was designed specifically by Rachel Zoe.  I love this bag, I don’t have anything specifically like this in my closet so it was really refreshing.  This bag is great it fits everything with room to spare.  I was sitting by the pool the other day and was able to fit my clutch, my towel, sunscreen, water bottle, some beer and a change of clothes.  I love that it is in black and not tan like most other straw bags.  There are no pockets inside but that does not bother be since it is specifically designed to be a carry all tote for the beach.  The straps are really amazing they are breaded black and white and I think it is a great extra detail.

Whenever Rachel Zoe designs something specifically for the box of style I am always impressed with it.

Beach Towel

So this was the item that you can choose between two options as a way to personalize the box a little bit.  I picked the lighter one, for no reason other than I am really liking the pink color that is through out the towel.  The other towel has a little bit more bold and graphic print and it was hard to pick between the two.  I have never had a towel that was fringed around the edge and looked this nice.  I was a little afraid that this would get dirty easily but I used it all day at the pool and even sat on it at the edge and still looks perfect.  The towel is actually a lot bigger then a normal towel.  I actually liked this more then I expected to, this is a Skova towel.

Fringe Earrings

AHHH!! So I have been wanting to buy a pair of fringe earrings for a while now I just haven’t been able to find a pair that I really like to commit to.  So when I saw these were in the box I got really excited.  These were a white fringe that were not too big.  The concern with these was would they be heavy.  Actually no they are not, they are quite light compared to other earrings this size I own.  I wore these recently to dress up a really casual outfit.

Lastly, Kate Glow Moisturizer

The timing of sending me a moisturizer we great, I had just used up all of mine and was looking forward to not having to buy another moisturizer.  So this is my least favorite product.  The smell is not my favorite but I prefer none scented (its just me), the scent is okay just not for me.  As a moisturizer it is pretty good but I would say compared to others it is not absorbed into the skin as quickly and tends to sit on top.  So I probably would not independently buy this product but I will continue to use it.

Overall I really love most of these products and think I will get a good amount of use out of all of them.  So the box of style is the most expensive subscription box, so is it worth it?  I think that if you are a beach/ pool person you will get a great amount of usage and it is worth it.

Rachel Zoe Winter Box of Style Review

Hello Hello!!  Now I am going to be very honest that this box was not shipped very quickly so I was really annoyed that it barely came in time for the new year.  With that in mind I want to talk about the winter box.  Now I debate cancelling my subscription for this every time it comes up because it is a lot of money.  It is $99 for each season, which I can do but I always think it is a lot of money.

Maker:L,Date:2017-8-31,Ver:5,Lens:Kan03,Act:Kan02,E-ve

The winter 2017 RZ box of style is by far the best one I have gotten, it is my favorite.  I opened it and unwrapped everything and was just super excited about what Rachel Zoe picked.  I couldn’t wait to wear the accessories.

So what did Rachel Zoe send?  She sent a box clutch (I chose marble print), House of Harlow earrings (Yes Nicole Richie’s House of Harlow), faux fur scarf, liquid eyeliner pen, essential hydrating oil, and a planner.  (I am least excited about the planner, mostly because I use my phone but maybe it will force me to write things down more.

Box clutch

Ahh!! I love it!!  This is great, you could pick it in the marble with gold accents to black with silver accents.  Both were really amazing and I would not have minded either but I like gold more than silver right now so that is the one I picked.  This clutch is big enough for your credit cards, phone and any other essentials.  I also love that it comes with a cross body strap, so it is very convenient to carry when out.

Earrings

They are gold and skarlie and they dangle.  They frame your face so well.  These earrings are just so amazing, they can literally go with anything.  In the pic on the left I am just wearing them with a sweatshirt and they feel amazing.  The one downside is that they are a little heavy, but since I wear them out I am not too concerned about that.

In the words of Rachel Zoe from the unboxing video “No one is going to punish you for being glamorous.”   You tell it Rachel Zoe.

Faux Fur Scarf

Maker:L,Date:2017-8-31,Ver:5,Lens:Kan03,Act:Kan02,E-ve

This scarf makes me feel so fancy and put together when I go out in the winter.  I am not normally a scarf person, I for the most part only wear them in the winter and think they get in the way the rest of the time.  This scarf is great, it is warm and a perfect length. Long enough to be beneficial but not too long to be in the way.  I love that one has a hole so you can thread the other side through it.

Others (eyeliner, hydrating oil and planner)

Don’t get me wrong I love these two but much harder to take a picture of.  The eyeliner is really great, creates a nice smooth line.  I use eyeliner every day so I use it all the time.  Hydrating oil is supposed to replace your lotion, I am not really a fan of the peppermint smell but it does work.  The planner is making me try to organize my life a little more.  It has these great quotes in it every month.  Here are a few,

Rachel Zoe: “style is a way to say who you are without having to speak”

Meryl Streep: “be strong enough to let go and wise enough to wait for what you deserve”

Diane Von Furstenberg: “life is very short. insecurity is a waste of time”

Review- Rachel Zoe spring box of style

Whats up, whats up?!  I love to get gifts in the mail, even if I am the one that orders them for myself.  So I do have a few subscription services that I do subscribe to, I am up in the air about keeping them.  I do like that they offer a lot of clothing and accessories that I cannot find anywhere else or that I wouldn’t normally pick out for myself, which I do really like.

The newest subscription I did was the Rachel Zoe box of style, this comes once a season, offers 5 products Rachel Zoe has picked out and is $99.  I have debated this one for awhile but I saw a preview of what was in the Spring box and was like I need that.  So what was in the box that I wanted?

This bag.

I saw this bag pictured/ advertised for the spring box and I had a 2 day debate about signing up and in the end I signed up.  The box was about embowering women entrepreneurs around the globe so every product was crafted by women (so I was more inclined to buy when I realized this).  I also just really love how this bag looks, it has a great spring pattern and leather accents.  It also offers a cross body strap which to me is necessary because I walk so much.  The black and white pattern means it goes with anything, and I currently am using it as my every day purse.  The few issues I have with the bag are the cross body strap isn’t that long so it is more of a messenger bag and the inside is not every organizational friendly.

So what are the other products?

First, is the scarf that is tied around the purse handles in the pics above.  I typically do not wear scarfs, well not typically I never do.  So getting a scarf was not really what I wanted, but I love the red color and the pattern.  And as Rachel Zoe suggested it looks really good tied around the purse.

The other products in the box are this water bottle, nail polish and earrings.  The earrings are amazing, I love the gold color (you got to choose if you wanted gold or silver), and they are versatile.  They can be worn with or without the hoops, I have been wearing them without them.  It works well when wearing them to work or going out.

The water bottle and nail polish are both in this pale pink color that I am really feeling lately.  I am not sure I am willing to buy a lot of clothes in this color so it is nice to have accent pieces like the water bottle and nail polish.

All in all I really liked this box of style and am happy that I subscribed, still unsure if I will continue to get the box.  But I will keep you posted.
