Social Bliss Style Box Review – January 2014
The Social Bliss Style Box is a new fashion and accessory subscription box. They guarantee a value of at least $100 in each box, so of course I had to sign up as soon as I heard about it!
They are a brand new subscription (this is their first box), so I’m hoping they work out some kinks in their site soon. (I never got a shipping confirmation email, and I wish the account section on their site gave you more information about each monthly box, not just that you have a current subscription).
The Subscription Box: The Style Box by Social Bliss
The Cost: $39.95 a month plus $7.95 shipping
The Products: $100 to $200 worth of products. Each box will contain an assortment of popular one size fits all fashion accessories and lifestyle products.
Each box comes with a card detailing the items included. This month’s theme is Rock Star!
The Hatter Company Fedora – Value $22
I don’t think I can pull off the look of this fedora – it may have to go to a much more fashionable friend!
Leather Studded Clutch – Value $55
When I first saw this clutch I assumed it would be made with faux leather given the cost of the box, but according to the card it’s made of leather. (I can’t find a brand or and labels in the clutch, but Social Bliss provides all values on the card included).
This clutch also comes with a detachable wristlet strap. It seems to be very well made, and even though the spikes were a little intimidating to me at first, this clutch is growing on me!
NYX Cosmetics Smokey Palette – Value $12
Even though I have way too much NYX makeup from subscription boxes – this palette is too cute! Plus I think the colors are perfect for the Rock Star theme.
Shield and Honor Strela Silver Necklace – Value $60
This necklace is designed from a spent .308 caliber bullet and encrusted with various sized Swarovski crystals with a silver plated lobster clasp at the top. I thought the crystals looked a little randomly placed on my necklace, but I checked the site and the look is intentional.
The story behind the brand is very touching too – and the proceeds of sales support families of fallen war heros!
Verdict: I paid about $48 for this box and received about $150 worth of products – the value in the first box is impressive! I think they did a great job curating a Rock Star themed box, but some of the pieces just don’t fit my personal style. If I could make any change in this box, I would love if they did a few style themes each month, and let you pick one. (That way you still get the surprise, but are more likely to use and keep all the items!)
I’m still impressed with this box though, and I can’t wait to see what the February theme will be!
What do you think of the first Social Bliss Style Box?
