The Style Box from August 2014 Review



The August 2014 box theme was “End of Summer Daze”, and contained the following:

  1. Laser-Cut Tote Bag, Sugg. retail $48  (No pockets… No likey.  I am OCD about storage, so I need pockets!  This leather-like tote is a pretty plum/purple color, but I’m not crazy about the laser-cut detail.  It came with a basic beige drawstring bag to store it in.  I’ve listed this on ebay!)
  2. Papillon Visor, Sugg. retail $18  (Made of straw-like paper with a bow in the center & velcro closure… I don’t know who in their right mind would wear this visor.  It is just awful.  A sunhat with the top center missing… Eww.  I haven’t seen anyone wear a hat like this, since Mrs. Schumacher, the old lady character from the ‘Dirty Dancing’ movie who stole wallets! LMAO!  I will definitely be selling this on ebay.)
  3. Turquoise Necklace by Influence, Sugg. retail $18  (My favorite item in this box!  It is very boho chic.  Acorn shaped Turquoise stone with gold tone chain.  A piece that will never go out of style.)
  4. Double Bar Cuff Bracelet, Sugg. retail $12  (Simple silver tone cuff that it so versatile!  A solid metal bar runs adjacent to a twisted metal bar.  I can see myself wearing this often!)
  5. Bare Escentuals Retractable Lip Brush, Sugg. retail $7  (Compact, at only 2-inches long, this will be a great tool to create the perfect pout on the go!  I’m excited to use this.)
  6. Metallic Hex Tattoo by The Pi Collection, Sugg. retail $4  (Having more than a few real tattoos myself…  I of course love this temporary metallic body art.  This one is a line of bronze hexagons that would probably wrap perfectly around my finger.) 





20140830_213608 estimated a total value of $107.  I paid $42.95 including shipping.  (I purchased a 3-month subscription to save some money.)  My sixth Style Box has me considering whether or not I will renew for another 3 month subscription.  Although it’s still a great value for what I paid, sadly has not delivered style I like, on the “main” item in all 6 boxes so far!!  If you are interested in giving it a try, go for a 3, 6 or 12 month subscription for the savings!!

Value aside, I give this box 2 paws.
