First look!

As always, everything is individually wrapped in black tissue paper.

First up! (you can see that darker circle… it’s because the item inside here spilled) XD

DSC_0765

One Love Organics Gardenia + Tea Antioxidant Body Serum ($39) – This leaked a little in its box, but it’s all good! It was still mostly full and none of the other items in the box were affected. I now have two of these because Popsugar sent out this exact product a few months back in their monthly subscription box. XD I’m sad to say that I have not actually started using that one because I’ve been using Fortune Cookie Soap products. However, this smells AMAZING. If you love the scent of gardenia (I DO), then you will love this. The serum (which has the consistency of a skin or facial oil) absorbs super quickly but the scent lingers, which is delicious.

This organic, gardenia-scented serum can be used on the body (with the spray!) to prevent and cure weather-chapped skin. You also can mix it with your daily moisturizer or sunscreen. This is 120ml/4 fl oz so it’s bound to last you a while!

Classic Fedora by Topshop ($48) – Oh man, I definitely didn’t know if I could pull this one off when I saw the spoilers. XD But I love how soft it is. Plus, the color is a beautiful olive that I think will look good with most skin tones.

The skinny black belt with the gold buckle kind of makes the entire hat.

The inside.

DSC_0771

I’m not much of a hat person because I find that I get “hat hair” too easily. XD But I kind of love this? Maybe because it reminds me of a hat that Sara Carbonero would wear. It’s almost a little boho. I don’t know how Rachel Zoe does it, but her curation is amazing and has been amazing every single box.

The next item! Or should I say items?

DSC_0773

Sloane Stationary Custom Notebook Set ($40) – DUDE. I am so in love with these beautiful notebooks! If you don’t already know, I love stationary and notebooks so any time a subscription box includes a high end notebook… I undoubtedly will love it. XD I use a notebook every day at work, despite how much I love my iPhone and computers. I just love stationary and writing stuff down. One says “it’s everything” and the other one says “shut it down“.

The backs!

DSC_0775

And what it looks like outside of the plastic sleeve! The cover is gorgeous and textured.

DSC_0776

And the insides are lined. 😀

DSC_0777

Of course, moving on…

DSC_0778

Fabric Fresh Classic by The Laundress ($8) – This was the second spoiler that was released for this box… and hilariously enough, a day or two later… full box spoilers came out! Anyway, this is the styling tool of the box! The last two were – styling tape and nippies. I kind of love that this box always includes one small but useful item to help lessen your every day struggles.

DSC_0779

This is 2 fl oz/60 ml and you can spray it on your clothes, linens, etc. to help freshen them up! It is nontoxic and allergen-free. I love the scent – it is truly super fresh and clean.

DSC_0780

And what’s this?

DSC_0782

Noa Rose Gold Ear Climbers by Shashi ($55) – Earrings! Unfortunately, I do not have pierced ears (but I probably will get my ears pierced one day… maybe XD). I love how delicate they are and I’m sad that I can’t wear them! Seriously, they look amazing when worn by someone. They kind of give off the vibe of a set of mini ear cuffs and I really love ear cuffs (the spiked ear cuff sent out in Nina Garcia’s first ever box is SO COOL).

DSC_0784

For some reason, I couldn’t get my camera to focus on the individual gems so you should go and see what it looks like up close/on someone!

DSC_0785

The backs!

DSC_0786

And the last item, the one you’ve all been waiting for (the one I’ve been waiting for ever since it was announced…)

DSC_0788

THE HERO ITEM!

DSC_0789

The leather clutch is fantastic and the button/closure is magnetic.

DSC_0791

La Boheme Rose Gold Watch with Dual Straps ($132) – LOVE LOVE LOVE. I wear a watch every single day and so when I found out that the hero item for the fall box was going to be this amazing watch? I just about died. This is GORGEOUS. I love the black dial that contrasts with the rose gold marks and case. Seriously so amazing. I don’t think any other luxury or style boxes have sent out a watch quite up to this caliber.

DSC_0790

The black strap was included too! You can easily change between the two colors, but I love the grey strap it came with because it’s just so unique. That black Cluse card? It’s your COA (certificate of authenticity). And now, a series of photos of the watch because I just love it so much.

Oh, did I mention that I love watches? XD

From left to right: Daniel Wellington, Cluse, Leonard and Church, and Amorstil. The last two are from Kickstarters! My next watch is going to be a Rossling Co watch, hehehe.

The Fall 2015 Rachel Zoe Box of Style!

Overall value: $322.00

Overall enjoyment: Rachel Zoe can do no wrong in my book! Her curation has been flawless with every box that she has sent out and I am so glad that I got the annual subscription. If you look at the items in this box, you’ll see that she’s even managed to curate a box with fall colors. I love this subscription. It is what I look forward to every single quarter and it’s worth the wait every time. I will honestly use everything in this box except the earrings – and that’s only because my ears aren’t pierced! Otherwise, I would totally wear them. I’ve been wearing the watch and I’ve started trying out that serum (the scent alone is amazing). Is it bad that I’m already eager to find out what the hero item will be for the winter box? XD

Oh, and before I forget to mention it… another awesome thing about this subscription is that Rachel Zoe includes a promo code for almost every single brand. So in this box, she included: a 15% off code to Cluse, a $25 off orders over $75 code to One Love Organics, a 15% off code to Shashi, a 15% off code to Sloane Stationary, and a 20% off code to The Laundress! The only one missing is a Topshop code.
