What Is the Box of Style?

I found out about Rachel Zoe's Box of Style though the Covet Fashion game and was immediately intrigued. A box of over $400 worth of fashion items delivered to your door for only $99? It seemed too good to be true. With a special coupon offer to get an extra $25 off (to offset the $15 cost of shipping it to Australia), I thought it was worth giving it a go.

I would like to take the opportunity here to state unequivocally that I am not in any way affiliated with Box of Style, as the rave review which follows may cause you to think otherwise.

What's in It?

Box of Style is a collection of items curated by Rachel Zoe each season (4 times a year). There are some small choices, such as the size of a belt or the colour of a wrap. This is also a small selection of other heavily discounted items that you can add to your box as well.

How Does It Work?

Once you subscribe, the current season's box will be delivered to you. Following that, you will receive a new box each season with fashion and beauty items relevant to the season.

Box of Style offers two subscription types—annual or seasonal.

  • I went with seasonal, which gives me the option of cancelling any time before 15th of the month prior to the shipment of the next box.
  • An annual subscription means that you will have to wait until you have received all four boxes before you can cancel. The upside of the annual subscription is a small saving—they're currently offering the annual subscription for $349.

Is It Worth It?

I would have to give a resounding YES!

There's nothing quite like the anticipation of opening up a box of goods that I probably would never have gone out and bought myself. It's almost like having a stylist choose items for you—in fact, I guess that's exactly what it is!

These are items that on their own I probably would look at and think they were a little pricey. But when they're grouped together into such a well-priced package, it seems fun rather than extravagant.

To be honest, I wasn't expecting to love every item, but for $99, I thought I could afford to give a couple of things away. As it turned out, each item is lovely, and I'll be keeping 'em all!

Example Box Contents

This is what came in the Summer 2018 box, all for the cost of $99 (USD).

This synthetic black and white tote is light, durable and stylish. Perfect to pack enough for a day at the beach, I think it will survive being packed in my suitcase for Hawaii.

I don't wear a lot of big earrings, but these are big enough to be interesting yet soft enough to not overwhelm a petite face. They'll go with everything in my summer wardrobe!

They currently retail for $63.

Bindaya St Barth's Cover Up

I was probably most nervous about this item, as I'm a rather small person and my response to anything "One-Size-Fits-All" is usually 'Yeah, right'. But I have to say I was pleasantly surprised. It's very wide, but the fabric is so lovely and soft it hangs beautifully without looking bulky. It's also short enough to throw over bathers to walk down the street and is much less transparent than I thought.

There is one dilemma with this cover-up. I'm really pale—almost as white as this cover-up and usually I fake tan when I'm on holiday. But if I fake tan and wear this cover-up, it's probably going to discolour the fabric a bit. I'll have to think about that one. For anyone with even a little bit of colour, this cover-up is a great addition.

It currently retails for $115.

I love Kate Somerville products. I thought this moisturiser may turn out to be a travel size, but it's not. It's a full size moisturiser that retails here in Australia for $95, so this box is looking like better and better value!

Skova Travel Towel

Okay, this towel is BIG. Perfect for a picnic on the beach. It has a gorgeous print—there was a choice of colours but by the time I ordered mine, there was only this left but I love it. The great thing about this towel is that even though it's large, it's not bulky. Light and easy to fold up and throw in your tote bag.

It currently retails for $53.

Fall 2018 Box of Style

The Fall 2018 Box of Style also had pretty amazing-looking contents:

  • a lovely black or burgundy Capelet (like a big open cardi)
  • a wrap belt
  • a full-size bottle of Caudalie Vinoperfect Radiance Serum
  • an Ettika 18k gold tassel necklace
  • a Beauty Pie mascara
