I-ELLA The List Subscription Review - Soho Bag

I-ELLA The List is a clothing and stylist subscription service. They offer 3 different subscription options: Starter Bag ($59 a month), Soho Bag ($129 a month), and the St. Barth’s Bag ($389 a month). Each subscription requires a 3-month minimum sign-up commitment).

I-ELLA kindly send me the October Soho Box to review. (FYI – the October box is sold out, but you can still sign up for the November box if interested). Here are a few more details I-ELLA provided me about the Holiday Party November boxes:

We’re sending our girls lovely pieces perfect for a Holiday Party – think tulle, lace, brocade, metallic and more.
5% of the proceeds from the November “Holiday Party” Gift Bag will go to one of our members who was recently diagnosed with breast cancer.  (I-ELLA has already identified the member and full details will be released once the November bags have shipped).

I opened up the first brown bag to reveal these little gifts. (I-ELLA always includes a few beauty samples and smaller items in addition to the big ticket item(s) in each box).

Miss Jessie’s Super Sweetback Treatment and Super Slip Sudsy Shampoo Samples – Value $2

S.W. Basics oF Brooklyn Cream – 1 oz Value $12

I love S.W. Basics of Brooklyn products (I use their lip balms a lot!). This cream is made with only three natural ingredients: fair trade shea butter, organic coconut oil and organic olive oil.

Verdict: This box has a value of over $300! I think that’s a great deal for the value of the items, even if I could find this clutch on sale. (I can’t find the exact clutch print pictured anywhere online). Everything included in this month’s Soho Bag is a high quality item in my opinion, and the big-ticket item is a wonderful splurge.

And I love that they are donating 5% of the proceeds of the November box to a member recently diagnosed with breast cancer.

What do you think of this Soho Bag from I-ELLA?

  1. They are taking a break
    I didn’t receive my bag until I threatened contacting legal and it was only thru this site did I finally get a bag shipped
    So disappointed

  2. I have been trying to sign up, but i have no longer been receiving their monthly emails. and i’m pretty sure their site is down. i checked on and it said it was down. did they close their business or relocate? I really want to sign up : /

    • Hm, I think they may be out of business. 🙁

      • Comment

  3. Wow, I was about to sign up for this until I read the comments. I think I will stay clear of I-Ella.

  4. I received a USPS shipping label tonight – pre-shipping
    We shall see

    • i did too. coincidence? i think not…

    • did you get your box? i got my box today…. i got a long sleeve teal colored silk blouse… not season appropriate and doesn’t fit, a jeweled necklace in the shape of flowers, which i actually like surprisingly, a lip balm, and a bar of soap… the website states you can exchange items but i dont think i even want to risk working with them again.

      • Hi Ashley, I’ll do a review of the box tonight on my blog. I received a Cream colored top from Walter Baker $118 value found on his website for $69. A Karen Kane dress for $128 also found marked down and some hand cream for $8.00 says it’s a $254 value but I get a $146 value. Still more than I paid for at $129 but for as long as I had to wait, I won’t be ordering again. Thank you for the response though Ella.

        Oh both pieces are up for swap already.

        • kristen i would love to see your review can you send me a link 🙂

  5. She had set up Facebook so you can’t comment on the I-ella page on new or old comments.
    I sent another email & mention fraud & theft

    • she did that after i complained on there about my bag. lol

  6. I ordered my MAAY Soho bag in April, received a couple emails at the end of May that my JUNE bag would be shipped the next week. It’s now JULY and I have not received anything. Comments are removed from the i-Ella Facebook page. Emails are NOT answered. It’s past the 45 days to get my money back from them via a PayPal complaint. I think that was the plan. I think the company/business has gone under and Ella just doesn’t want to admit it to her customers. As a law enforcement officer I’m absolutely livid that I wasted $140 on this. This was supposed to be my birthday treat
    Thanks for NOTHING – NOT HAPPY at all – IF THEY come back in September – do NOT BUY.

  7. worst sub box ever!! horrible customer service!! i ordered the box in may and was charged. but never received the may box then one of the few emails i have gotten back stated i would get the lune box and it is now july 3rd and i have yet receive anything from them!!

    • I agree Ashley, it’s horrible, I feel like it was delayed long enough to get our money and not have a way to fight for it via paypal.

  8. I hope someone can help, I got on the list for the Soho, I’ve paid, I tried going on the site but it says I’m not registered – I know I filled out the style profile (with Maxi’s as my must as well) but I’m so lost on this one – I really am computer literate but so embarrassed by this.

    I want to know if I can upgrade for the next month as it will be my birthday present to ME!

  9. Have you gotten the smaller box? The starter kit? I cant seem to find anything on that one.

  10. It’s Nov. 19th and I have yet to receive my OCTOBER bag. I asked them last week for a shipment confirmation number. Although promised, I was never provided that either. Glad you enjoy yours. I hope to get mine….one day.

    • Hi Melissa,

      Our apologies for the delay. The List has been growing quite rapidly. You will have your gift bag within 3 business days. The girls and I are very certain you will squeal with delight 🙂


    • Melissa, Did you ever receive your bag?

      • EVENTUALLY…….it came in. It was way late….I forget exactly how late. I told her to remove me off the list. They are way more concerned with getting your money than they are getting the bags actually to you. After I complained on enough forums, she offered me a discount on their holiday bag. See…more money with no bag.

      • Eventually…….after a LONG time. The bag was great….but after the nightmare process…ill never purchase from her again. She shoots herself in the foot with horrible service. I asked her to take my name off the list.

  11. I love the list from i-ella. I received a fantastic pair of vegan leather pants in my box! Perfect for fall.

  12. The value is really nice! I’ve been putting off on these personal stylist type subscriptions because I am notoriously hard to shop for when it comes to clothing. So far, I haven’t seen a service that carries what I like. Maybe I’m not meant to try stylist subs. /shrug/

  13. I received an e-mail about the Holiday i-ella list. I was glad to be invited, but I can’t justify the $250 commitment with the holidays around the corner. The holidays are about getting something for my daughters-and they have their eyes set on American girl dolls and accessories. I like the s.w. basics brand a lot too!
