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.

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

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”

Online Shopping

Hello, hello!-  So I was talking with someone a few weeks ago and somehow online shopping came up and they told me that they never online shop.  And this blew my mind, I was a little dump founded and didn’t know what to say.  Maybe its just me but I almost exclusively shop online, this is partially due to malls sometimes make me claustrophobic since there are so many people crammed into one space.

So I just wanted to share some sites that I shop on really often and some that I have been testing out and its working out.  Now I know people will ask about sizing issues and aren’t I nervous I will buy something and it won’t fit?  Yea I am but most places have free returns so I don’t worry about it as much.  Pants are the one item that I will not order online, just because they are so different across the board and you really need to try them on before buying.

Ellie Clothing

I found them on Facebook about 3 years ago and since then I have bought so much from them that it is a significant part of my wardrobe.  This is my favorite place to look for items that no one else will have (they are located in Alabama and I live in the North).  They have great colorful tops and some amazing dresses.  I love their dresses, they can be worn casual or formal, I have worn them bumming around but also to work marketing events.

My recommendation with them is to follow them on Instagram because a lot of their stuff is not on the website but they will put stuff on their Instagram and you can comment and be invoiced.  This is really where some of the best stuff I have bought from there came from.

So obviously since they are half my wardrobe I couldn’t insert a picture all of the stuff I have bought there but here are a few.  The ones on the left are the ones I wear to fancier events and the two on the right are so awesome I wear them all the time in the summer.  I haven’t worn the green one yet but I seriously cannot wait to wear it, the cut outs on the bottom are amazing.

Amazon

I love Amazon, I have Prime so it is a no brainier that I order clothing and accessories off of here.  I really love it because you can typically find what you are looking for at a really reasonable price.  I have recently bought some great items that I really love to wear.  A lot of the stuff I have bought are casual but I have also bought my trench coat off of Amazon and I love it.

Lately I have been buying accessories on here,  the purse selection is on point.  I don’t even really look at any other site when I am looking for a new purse.  To me shopping elsewhere for a purse is not worth it because Amazon has a better selection at a better price.

Ah the purses, my favorite part front one, middle purse, and back one.  I have talked extensively about the other two in prior posts.  But I’ll reiterate this romper is awesome and this shirt is so comfortable.

New York & Co.

I usually look for work dresses on here but typically only buy if they are sizes S, M, L.  Last year I bought 2 of the same dress in different colors, and it is one of my best dresses.  I highly recommend, but I could not find the exact one I did find this one.

So those are my staples of my online shopping problems, there are a few other sites that I have bought a few things off of but have not developed a really good opinion of.  The times I have ordered have been good.
