    Honest Review of Rachel Zoe’s Winter Edition Box of Style

    I’ve been a subscriber of The Box of Style for three seasons now and I just received the Winter Box! Off the top of my head, I’d say I like it way better than the Fall Box which I frankly found to be a tad disappointing. It’s not that it didn’t have great, stylish things overall, but for me was a let down after the Summer Box. Summer Box of Style offered a ton of super stylish and often used items so it was admittadly a tough act to follow.

    But back to the Winter box…I do receive a small affiliate commission if you decide to buy the Box of Style through my links, however please know that all my opinions are honest and truly my own.

    It’s value is $458 and right now you can get it for $25 off! Click here or on the promotion box shown on the side of this post. So you can get the Winter box for the pay as you go option of $74.99 instead of $99.99! You’ll need to hurry though if you want it in time for Christmas or upgrade to 2 day shipping.

    I may give an item or two as a gift – literally everything is high enough quality and stylish enough to give as gifts – but most items I think are in the keep for myself category. Merry Christmas to me right?!?

    • The first big item is touted as The Everyday Adornment Piece: AF Necklace by Andrea Fohrman, Retail Value $200 . The design is very simple yet elegant and can definately be dressed up (as shown in the photo below) or down with something like a white button up or tee and jeans. I was hoping to give this as a gift to an older teen but when I saw it in person it feels too refined for her, so I’ll keep it. It is lovely – more in person than in the photo below due to it’s delicate nature. So all in all I consider this a solid win item.
    • Next, is what Rachel calls the The Luxe Layer: Maison Du Soir Robe, Retail Value $150. This chic robe is definately bold enough to wear as part of an outfit or is great for around the house too. I see myself wearing it layered over my leather leggings or skinny jeans and a light sweater and this is for sure a personal keep item. The Box of Style blog offers numerous outfit ideas for it that I think I’ll copy.
    • Now on to the smaller retail items. First, Rachel’s take on The Radiance Rescuer: Estee Lauder Revitalizing Supreme + Global Anti-Aging Cell Power Creme, Retail Value $55 for a 1 oz jar. I checked out the reviews on Nordstrom and it’s got 861 reviews and nearly a perfect 5 star rating average so I’m super excited to try this – especially this time of year! Second, a great scented candle (Rachel’s calling this The Cozy Essential) by Ethics Supply Co. in their Starry Night fragrance, Retail Value $38. It’s mellow, relaxing scent that’s described as a cool-night scent with hints of pinecone will create the perfect ambience anytime of the year. This description rings true to me and while I’m tempted to keep it, I think it will be a really nice gift for a friend.
    • And rounding out the box is the final item – Rachel’s take on Glam On The Go: Rachel Zoe x LORAC Hollywood Glamour Mini Palette, Retail Value $15. It’s offered in two palates and I opted for the more dramatic winter colors because the other more neutral and gold version seemed to be repeats of colors I already owned. It’s a thin and smaller compact which will be great to toss in my smallest purse for night’s out.

    The items in the Winter box are most definately worth the full value of the box! Especially if you grab it at the discounted rate!

    As always, I think the quality that Rachel curates for her boxes is stellar, and this season’s style is more of what I felt like I got in the Summer box. The Fall box was OK but the purse was up to her standards in my opinion – it looked a bit like Forever 21 to me. And the necklace although cool, is quite bold and I just haven’t worn it yet.

    I’d say The Box of Style is a great buy this season! If you order it, let me know what you think both quality and style wise.
