This is a review of the large boho box.
This postcard was included. It gives some idea of the types of items they sell in their boutique, but no information about the specific items included in the box.
On the reverse side of the card is their social media information, plus a coupon code for 10% off your next purchase!
The first item I pulled out of the box were these super cute and cozy leg warmers! I love the rich chocolate brown color. They are adorable and will make really cute boot cuffs!
This scarf is super soft, lightweight cotton. I love tassels!
I love the look of turquoise and red together. One thing I love about boho jewelry is that it immediately transforms the look of very simple clothing, which I prefer. This necklace will get a lot of use!
This is actually my favorite piece in the box! I am obsessed with coin belts and jewelry! It seems so dramatic and exotic. It makes quite a statement, so I probably won’t be getting as much use out of it as the other necklace, but I think this one makes me happier.
The last piece is this double-banded bar ring. It has a very trendy yet simple feel. Fortunately it fits! I didn’t provide a ring size and it’s not adjustable, so it must be luck.
Verdict: I absolutely love all things boho, 70’s, and funky, so everything in this box was a big win for me. It’s completely my style! That being said, I have to say that I find it a little strange that none of these pieces are for sale online in their boutique, and even their sold out items still appear online (with a “SOLD OUT’ note) for quite a while. Their website says that the small boxes will have a retail value of $40-50 and large boxes will be worth about $75-90, but without any information on the card about the items, and none of the items for sale in their online store, it is impossible to tell. I think the value of all five of these items combined would have to be more than the $50 I paid for it, though, so I am happy with the value anyways. It would just be helpful to know!
I also have to mention that they did charge me sales tax, which I emailed them about earlier today. The boutique is in CA and I live in GA, so I don’t think there should be sales tax levied in this case. It’s only $4.xx, but I would still rather not pay it if I don’t have to!
What do you think of the Ox Box?
