Box of Style | Summer Box Review

 

I realize I’m a little late to this party, but better late than never, right?? I finally ordered my first Box of Style, curated fashion-in-a-box by the iconic and amazing Rachel Zoe. I had a 20% coupon code at the time which means I paid $79.99 for 6 items which I thought even if I don’t love everything in the box, I can pass along to friends and family as gifts. I also loved the element of surprise when I opened the box! This box definitely did not disappoint. I thought it would be helpful to share with you what’s in the box, definite keepers, and which items I plan on giving away as gifts. Here goes!

Helena Quinn Kimono. I absolutely love this kimono top!! The quality is amazing. The colors and print are so vibrant. I will totally be dressing this up by throwing it over a simple black dress or dressing it down with a pair of cutoffs and a white tee. You could even wear it as a beach cover-up! The kimono retails for $120. Final verdict – Keeper!

RAEN Sunglasses. I love the shape of these sunnies and you get the option to order the tortoise shell or black when placing your order. I so wanted to love these sunglasses because of the cateye shape but they seem too big for my face. I need your help – should I keep these or give to a friend. Final verdict – HELP!!

 

The Brave Collection Compass Necklace. I love the simplicity and meaning of this necklace. The chain is very delicate and the charm has a compass on it. The necklace is handmade by fair-trade artisans in Cambodia, and 10% of the profits are donated towards the fight against human trafficking. Verdict – Keeping!

Sole Society Straw Panama Hat. This hat is perfect for a day at the beach…the wide brim will protect you from the sun. The pom pom detail is absolutely adorable and gives it a very playful look. The quality is also great for the price point (only $27). I’ve never owned a Panama hat so the fit feels different for me. It kinda just sits on the top of my head, not really a fitted hat. So I’m on the fence with this one. I have 2 other straw hats that I adore, do I really need a third?? Final Verdict – Gift to a friend.

Beauty Counter Cream Blusher & Sunscreen. I’m grouping these last 2 items together. I’m a huge of this brand and maybe a little bias since I signed up to be a Beauty Counter rep a month ago. The mission of this company is spot on in that they want to put safer beauty and skincare products into our hands. Not only are they about cutting out the unnessary ingredients, but they’ve created highly effective products around anti-aging, sun protection, body care for our little ones, and so much more. Definitely check out this company and if you have any questions or find something you like, let me know!

I definitely plan on ordering the Fall Box of Style. The anticipation was so much fun! While there are a few things that I’m not 100% crazy about, I’m excited to gift them to a few friends and I know they will love it!
