The Zoe Report Box of Style Spring 2016

Rating: Like It!!!
Cost: $100/quarterly box; $350 yearly subscription

I received my Zoe Report Box of Style this week and I hadn't looked at spoilers yet, so I was so excited to see what was in it! I'm not even sure I'd seen any spoilers out before I got my box. I love that this box ships right away in the beginning of the month and doesn't take weeks to show up!

This is the most exciting view, especially when you have no idea what is going to be under the tissue paper!

And everything inside is individually wrapped in black tissue paper. My daughter helped me unwrap everything and was having so much fun with it!

This box is all about Spring and I was excited to see what was in this box. I missed last year's Spring box, which was the very first box and it was amazing! The Box of Style always includes a information booklet of everything included in the box. And as usual I took pictures of every page. I love reading these to see how Rachel Zoe would style everything!

The Hero Item included this month was the Shaffer LA Leather Bucket Bag. Retail price $150. Everyone received a custom Caramel Leather color. When I saw this spoiler, I knew it wasn't my style, because it's a bit too bohemian. Plus I'm a mommy, so my festival days are over. And from pictures I thought it was going to be kind of large, but this is quite small, and fairly simple, so I'm warming up to it and it just might become my go to bag for running around on weekends. My work bag needs to be much larger, but I can kind of see myself using this for vacations and shopping trips. I actually really like the tassels and simple shape of it!

I forgot there was another spoiler released until I opened it up and remembered. The Jouer Creme Eyeshadow Crayon was the other spoiler released before the boxes shipped. Retail price $24. Subscribers received one of 8 colors. I received Mosaic, which is a silvery blue shade and I love it. I was so happy with the color chosen for me. It is different than anything I own and I know I will wear it. I have blue eyes and pale skin, so I feel like it will work nicely on me!

The next item included was my favorite. I received the Jules Smith Pave Bar and Stone Cuff in silver. Retail price $45. Some subscribers received gold. I would have been happy with either, but prefer silver. This is so delicate and pretty. I love it! Some people may complain because it is small, but it is adjustable, so it will fit everyone. I personally love bracelets that fit small wrists too, because I often have the problem of them being large, so this is perfect for me. And I have earrings that will work with it perfectly, so I can't wait to wear it! It's different and unique, yet simple, which I love!!!

Also included was LSTN Sound Co. Wembley Earbuds. Retail price $100. These are wooden and so chic looking. Plus the proceeds provide hearing aids to help someone hear for the first time through Starkey Hearing Foundation! I don't use earbuds much, but I may start, because these are so lovely and I want to use them.

The next item was Klorane Dry Shampoo with Oat Milk. Retail price $20. I've tried this dry shampoo before and I like it, but it's not my favorite brand. I do have quite a bit of dry shampoo right now, so I may end up gifting it to someone that will enjoy it.

The final item included was Hollywood Fashion Secrets Oil Blotting Tissues. Retail price $5. I probably should use products like this, but rarely do. I do have quite a few weddings to attend, so I may throw these in my bag for those shiny moments, when you need to be camera ready!

And I saved my favorite surprise for the end. All subscribers received a bonus sample of La Mer The Concentrate! I've been wanting to try something by this brand FOREVER, but it's much too expensive for me, so I've never been able to. And now I can, which I'm so excited about. I just hope I don't fall in love, because I can't afford the $340/$440 price tag!!! Hopefully I can make this sample stretch for quite a while if I love it! And for that price, I'm hoping for miracles!!!

The Spring Box of Style was a well curated box. I'm not sure I'm overly excited for any one product included and I think I liked last year's Spring box better. Maybe once I start using the products, I'll change my mind. It definitely was still worth the price and I feel like if I decide to skip one of these boxes, it will be the best one yet. I can't wait to see the summer hero product. I hope they release it soon.
