Rachel Zoe Box of Style Spring 2015 Subscription Box Review Box

The Rachel Zoe Box of Style from The Zoe Report is a brand new subscription box from Rachel Zoe. I am a huge fan and love her taste, so I think this may be my favorite subscription box launch of the year so far!

This box was sent to us early for review purposes. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).

Rachel Zoe Box of Style Spring 2015 Subscription Box Review Details

Rachel Zoe Box of Style Spring 2015 Subscription Box Review Cuff

Miansai modern screw cuff – Value $200

This cuff is 14K gold-plated brass. I absolutely love the design and simplicity of this bracelet – and it is a bracelet I can actually easily put on myself!

The only word of warning I have is that it fits me almost like a glove, and I have smaller wrists, so this might not fit everyone.

Rachel Zoe Box of Style Spring 2015 Subscription Box Review Sunnies

Tom’s Traveler Sunglasses – Value $68

Rachel Zoe Box of Style Spring 2015 Subscription Box Review Toms

I was expecting a pair of fab black sunnies from Rachel in the first box – so these are perfect. I also love the fabric case that comes with them.

And of course, I love the TOMS brand, so that’s another win. The blue tips on the shades are a fun nod to the brand too.

Rachel Zoe Box of Style Spring 2015 Subscription Box Review Mascara

tarte Lights Camera Lashes Mascara – Value $20

This is one of the mascaras I use most often – and I’m thrilled to have more of it. (It’s also one of the few mascaras I will actually pay for since I get so many in boxes – I love it that much).

Rachel Zoe Box of Style Spring 2015 Subscription Box Review Zoya

Zoya Custom Nail Trio – Value $30

Colors: Haley, Zoe, and Chantal

Zoya is one of my all time favorite nail polish brands, so this is another item in the box I love. (Even though I have more nail polish than I can ever use!)

I also love that Rachel worked with Zoya to create the “perfect custom opal color.” It was also used in her Fall 2015 fashion week presentation.

Rachel Zoe Box of Style Spring 2015 Subscription Box Review Tape

Stylin’ Tape – Value $10

While this isn’t the most exciting item to me, it makes perfect sense for this box, and it’s also one of those items that when you realize you need it, it is too late to go buy some, so it will be good to have on hand. (And props to Rachel – the black faux snakeskin envelope makes this the most stylish fashion tape I’ve ever seen).

Verdict: This box has a value of $328 – for a $100 box I think that is amazing. I’m in love with pretty much everything in this box – including the packaging. It feels so luxe and well put-together. And I love that Rachel included two of my favorite beauty brands in this box! And I can’t wait to wear the cuff and sunglasses!

I really appreciate that they release the main hero item in advance – I think that’s a great way to predict if the box will be a good value for you, while still getting a surprise out of the other items.

What do you think of the first Rachel Zoe Box of Style?

  1. I am so SAD that I missed out on this! Please let me know if anyone wants to sell theirs…

    • People are selling the full box on ebay… But the prices are really jacked up high!

  2. I think the bracelet is my favorite thing I’ve ever received in a sub box. It is well-made, elegant and a little edgy and totally different from anything else I own. I haven’t removed it since I opened the box. And I thought the sunglasses were going to be waay to big, but Zoe was right, they do seem to flatter most faces. The mascara is luxe ,and while not thrilling, I will use it when I get through my stash. I’m a little over nailpolish and already own fashion tape, so will be trading those, but even considering that, the box is totally worth it. Excited for summer (even without peeking at the hero item).

  3. Is there a purpose for that giant rubber band that comes on the sunglasses case? Liz doesn’t have it pictured, but it seems so big that it must have a reason for being.

    • I was curious about that too…

  4. I bought this box for the bracelet even though it’s gold and I prefer silver however, it’s very cool and different (I like things a bit edgy). When I saw the teeny little super-cute tissue wrapped bracelet I was definitely worried! No fears though, to my surprise it fit perfectly and the biggest bonus is that I can put it on myself! It’s a very solid high end piece of jewelry and I’m thrilled with it. I even have a bit of wiggle room. I’m one that presentation is part of the value for me in boxes and this did not disappoint! Individually wrapped items, beautiful boxes, even nice tissue. That made this feel very luxe. I think it’s a very well curated box. I’ve never used fashion tape but I love the faux snakeskin envy it’s in. It’s slim enough to slip in any bag. Also loved the look of the Toms but not sure they look great on me. I’m keeping them and letting them grow on me. I didn’t notice any promo codes but I’ll have to re-read my insert. Worth every penny I paid and it’s a birthday gift to myself. I can’t wait for the summer box. Thanks Rach!

    • Promo codes are in fine print under each item description – some worthwhile codes too.

  5. Will be selling my box that just arrived yesterday. Will sell for what I paid for it and that will include shipping to you! Any interest, let me know!!
    nadelaney@gmail.com

    • I’m interested – just emailed you 🙂

  6. EEK!! I Love the boxes!
    (yep, just the boxes lol). If anyone was planning on just getting rid of/ throwing away some or all of the empty boxes, I would love if I could somehow get em. Please, contact me:
    nothing_wicked@mail.com
    Thanks Bunches 😀

  7. Loved the Spring box! I think the bracelet is fabulous. I mix it with some silver and gold bracelets I wear. I also thought everything in the box was stylish and I will use everything in it. I also must comment on how impressive Team Zoe customer service is. My Spring Box didn’t have the insert card. Team Zoe responded right away and they are sending me the insert card. Can’t wait for the Summer Box.

    • I’m happy to hear this because mine was missing the card as well. I emailed them earlier, so I hope they send me one also. I was looking forward to the discount codes.

  8. LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE!!!

  9. I complained when I saw the spoilers but now that I have the box… I love it. The bracelet is way more awesome than I had expected, I had originally thought I would just sell it because it wasn’t my taste (gold). But I absolutely love it and it made the box worth it!!

  10. I have a 6.5″ wrist measurement and I was able to put the bracelet on but there was no wiggle room. For those who are still looking to sell their box, Ebay is a quick, easy way to make your money back and then some. Many people are selling the items piece by piece (for ridiculously inflated prices and they don’t seem to be selling well) but the entire box seems to be most in demand. Selling the entire box, even if at a considerable mark-up, seems to be the best way to go. Also, use original photos, not the generic website photos everyone else is using. My box sold quickly. Plus I got a discount on shipping (about 25% less) by printing my priority mail shipping label through ebay rather than USPS.

  11. Anyone still have a whole box that they want to sell? I have a friend that wants it. Thanks!

  12. My box came too! I was sooooo nervous that the bracelet wouldn’t fit but it’s perfect!! ( I have a 6″ wrist) The packaging was amazing, the best I’ve ever seen. Such care and love went into this and you can tell. I loved the card included with all of the discount codes and the wording from RZ made it more special. The sunglasses are too large, was hoping they’d be like my Ray Bans. I’ve never swapped but if anyone has interest please let me know. 🙂

    • My mom is dying for a pair and Im not letting go of mine! I would be interested in swapping or buying at a discount.

      • Are we talking the sunglasses? I really wanted to train case from popsugar resort box if you have that to swap.

        • If you haven’t found someone willing to sell their glasses, I’m open to swapping or selling mine. I can’t pull them off.

  13. Got my box today and I am super impressed! It’s nice to see such high quality items! The bracelet is simple and beautiful (and it FITS, sigh of relief.) They sunglasses are high quality and I’m looking forward to bringing them with me to Disney World in a few weeks. I love Zoya nail polish, so that’s a win. And I’ve never tried that Tarte mascara so I am excited to finally have it in my hands. Fashion tape is meh for me, but I will keep it around as I’m sure it will come in handy at some point during wedding season. YAY for this box. Looking forward to the summer edition!

  14. I received my box today and I love it! I even love the beautiful gift box of nail polishes and I don’t do my own nails at home – but they are beautiful and so nicely presented. The sunglasses are too large for me but the case is beautiful and the gift box is so nice… I’ll just swap or gift those easily …

  15. It finally came today! Despite my early grumbles, I do like the box. The bracelet is gorgeous, but man is that thing tiny! I have small hands and wrists: usually I have to take out links, and bangles just sort of fall off, so I was surprised to see that this fit perfect. Great for me, but I can’t imagine that this would be comfortable on most women, if it fit at all. I was also concerned that it would not be comfortable at work because I use a computer all day, but I think the curved part is comfortable enough. I’m still on the fence about the glasses, they are much bigger than I imagined, but of better quality than I expected.

  16. Hi Everybody,

    If anybody is selling the box or the bracelet, I am interested!

    Thanks,
    Janet
    jkrulee@hotmail.com

    • Thanks to a fellow MSA “sub box junkie” I was able to purchase a box. LOVE!

  17. If anyone would like to make an offer on the TOMS sunglasses, please email me at vsindsr@gmail.com

  18. I was trying really hard to not see the spoilers this month (thanks to PSMH shipping late I experienced the joy of being surprised I figured I’d do that with the Zoe box) but was thwarted with a video post on FB by the Zoe Report. And after hearing how small the bracelet was, I was starting to get sad about how this box might turn out. But once I had it in hand, I was so VERY pleased with the contents! The bracelet JUST fits in that nook between my wrist bone and hand and only slides up an inch or so and I have small wrists (<7"). I wear it with the bar on the inside of my wrist and that works best as I type all day. I tried on the sunnies and sent a pic to friends joking about how they looked on me, but to my surprise, they actually looked really good! Not my style at all (love my aviators) but headed to vacation soon so they will be my traveling sunnies 🙂 The mascara is wonderful and I'll be applying the nail polish tonight (how have I not gotten a sample of Zoya before?). I'm sure the tape will come in handy when I least expect it. Now that I'm back on the spoiler bandwagon, I'm excited to see what the "hero" item is for summer! Hopefully they take note that many that have purchased the box aren't one size fits all!

  19. I should have checked the measurements of the bracelet before buying! My wrist is like, a half centimeter too big based on Liz’s measurement. I received my box and love everything else, but didn’t even bother unwrapping the bracelet to avoid making me more sad. But the sunglasses are super cute!

    Bracelet available for swap or purchase for half price. 🙁

    • I would like to buy the bracelet from you

    • I’m interested in the bracelet. How much are you selling it for?

  20. I passed on this box because I wasn’t sure if the bracelet will fit. I can’t wait to see what is the item released for the next box. I may sign up!

  21. I love this box! The only thing I wasn’t overjoyed about was the fashion tape, but I love that the insert gives tips on how to use it. I probably won’t use all of the promo codes, but the value of the items and the discounts from the promo codes make the $100 price tag well worth it. I signed up for the quarterly subscription rather than paying up front for the whole year, but I have a feeling I’ll be changing that!

    • What promo codes were there?

      • Nevermind! I totally missed them on the card. Haha

  22. I’m so sad I missed this box. I’m new to sub boxes so I’m learning all about the good and bad of subs thanks to Liz and everyone who posts comments.

    I just signed up to be on the waitlist for the summer box. What are the chances of getting a summer box?

  23. Loving this box, but I’m worried my Miansai bracelet is defective. Is anyone else having trouble getting the screw to stay in place? I screw it in and it keeps falling out! I’m scared I’ll lose the bracelet because of that! Any suggestions?

    • yes! i have been having the same issue. i keep tightening it every 5 minutes, LOL. I wish there was a tighter screw or some sort of lock mechanism.

  24. So Chic! Every piece is amazing and I would use either for myself or give as a special gift.

  25. Mine arrived today!! Ooh I love the bracelet!! I have freakish 5″ wrists (my baby bracelets still fit) and while it rotates around it is not uncomfortable at all. Everything else is a bonus and will definitely be put to use. I may swap the sunglasses, I love Toms, but not sure that shape works for me. I wish this sub was every other month but I prefer quarterly if it’s going to keep the quality and service stellar like this box. Rachel hit it out of the park!

  26. If anyone is interested in selling their entire box, please email me at aihutch@yahoo.com

  27. While I think this is really a great box, not enough of it is working for me (darn you big wrists) so I am looking to sell my box if anyone is interested, figure it would be easier to sell as a whole instead of individual pieces. Looking for $100 and I’ll just eat the cost of shipping. Anyone interested?

    • Interested! What is your email!

    • If still available, lmk…I was so sad when I missed this box. Thanks!!

    • I doubt it is still available but I would be interested in purchasing your box. Please let me know if it still is krissystout@me.com

    • I’m looking to buy the whole box !

  28. I have to say now that I have the box in my hands, I really, really like it. Thank goodness the bracelet fit me just fine so it appears I’m one of the lucky ones. I This box was very much worth the money spent. I’m sticking with this one for now.

  29. This box looks amazing 🙂 I love Rachel and this box is so her! I’m glad that I held off on buying the first one though because I already have that mascara and I don’t wear bracelets often……..but I reeeeeally want to get on the waitlist for the summer box!! Isn’t it everyone’s dream to be styled by Rachel Zoe?!?! I love how personal she made this box!

  30. I don’t have small wrists, but I don’t have large wrists either and the bracelet did not fit. Not sure I’ll be able to sell it either as it looks like there will be tons out there (because of it not fitting, not because folks don’t like it). I’d wear it if the dang thing fit!

    As for the rest of the box, love it! Thought it was very well done and really seemed to come from the mind of Rachel Zoe.

    • Hi Rene – if you’re interested in selling the bracelet, please let me know at beforeandafterbaking at gmail.com. Would love to buy!

  31. My wrist measures 7-1/4″. Just bones, no fat. I was so sad that the bracelet didn’t fit. Liked the rest of the box.

  32. I enjoyed unwrapping each package and thought every item was well thought out for this box. It really felt that Rachel was involved in every part of this box which I appreciated. I also liked that there is a discount code on the card for future purchases for each brand. I can hardly wait to see what the next box brings and I am glad that I signed up for the annual subscription.

  33. Such a fabulous box! I didn’t buy it (I have soooo many boxes already ) and I regret it. I could definitely use this cuff and sunglasses (love gold). I have too many nail polish and mascaras but stylish tape would be totally new and useful item for me. Now I have to decide if I want to spend $100 for her next box….

  34. I knew I would not wear the bracelet since it is gold tone, took the chance with the rest of the box and am happy with it. I have small wrists so it fits ….. however the highest value item being the bracelet and not one size fits all, they should have had a sizing option, or a bracelet option. There are many people that have standard or larger sized wrists and its not right for them to get a box with a bracelet that wont fit.

    • Are you interested in selling the bracelet? 🙂

  35. Great review! I feel unless I can get a sneak peak every time, I wouldn’t purchase. $100 is commitment.

  36. Love, love, love, love, love!

  37. This box looks so well thought out and great value. That bracelet looks gorgeous. I didn’t sign up for this box, because I primarily wear silver jewelry (although I have more and more gold now thanks to sub boxes) but I wish I had.

  38. I splurged on this for my birthday and I am getting super bummed because it is sounding more and more like the bracelet won’t fit me, I don’t have huge wrists but I do not have small wrists either, ugh. 🙁 I like everything else for the most part but I am bummed that I can’t use the highest value item, especially since I like the look of it! Crossing my fingers that maybe somehow it will fit….

  39. Do I wear the bracelet with the bar on my inner wrist/Palm side or on the other? It does fit both ways and I like the look both ways. Anyone know?

    • I wasn’t sure either and like it both ways but the photo of the cuff on the Barneys New York website (the link Liz provides above) shows it being worn with the bar on the outside of the wrist so I guess that is the intention. 🙂

    • I looked it up, because I was curious as well, and all pics have the bar on top of the wrist. This box will have me feeling quite fancy! Cant wait til tomorrow!!

      • Thank you, girls! It’s so cute on. I think I will wear it to work tonight.

  40. When I saw the bracelet spoiler I knew it wouldn’t work for me 🙁
    I have large wrists and often the bracelets in boxes don’t fit me
    Awesome box though

    • Would love to know if you’re interested in selling the bracelet! I’m new to this sub and so sad to have missed first couple boxes!!

  41. This is seriously the most perfect box I’ve ever gotten!

    I have small wrists (under 6 in) and the bracelet was loose/perfect on me.

  42. Wow what an amazing box. In fact, probably one of the best curated boxes I’ve ever seen. If I had gotten this box, I woulda sold the cuff and that would make this box free! The sunglasses (my favorite part), nail polish, mascara, and tape are all amazing.

  43. I am just so pleased with everything about this box. My favorite part is the sunglasses. I love her style and she has such an attention to detail. Plus I have to rave about the shipping situation. PSMH takes 3-4 weeks to Hawaii. My Rachel Zoe box was here in 4 days. Swoon…….

    • I was so shocked we received it the same day as everyone else! I’m torn on the sunglasses… They scream mainland to me.

  44. Beautiful box! Quite pleased!

  45. Love this box! Beautiful presentation and well-out execution from start to finish. ❤️ Easily in my top 3 favorite boxes right now.

    • Hi Chris, just curious, what are your top 5?

      • Hi Natlovesmelody! My top 5 changes frequently but right now that would have to be Box of Style, LLB, RawSpiceBar, Julep, My Pretend Place (kids). 🙂

        How about you?

  46. I have to admit that as the owner of M-L wrists, I am now more glad then ever that I missed this box. It’s lovely, but I just measured my wrists as 6.75. Not good when that is THE main item….

  47. i wore my bracelet already today, i love it! I do have very small wrists so it worked well for me. I know some people are complaining about the box but I really love it. It screams LA to me, which is good because I live in LA

  48. What I especially like about receiving this box is that everyone gets the SAME items– no box envy for me this time, and the values given don’t seem to be inflated…

    • Thank you! I’m starting to realize I’m happier with boxes that have little to no variation.

  49. I have smaller wrists so I really hope that this fits. Does anyone have the measurements either of the bracelet or what their wrist size is since you both mentioned it fits like a glove?

    • My wrist measures about 6 inches around if that helps!

      • It does, thank you.

    • I have regular wrist and it fits perfectly, neither too tight or too lose. I do have to specify S-M when buying bracelets that are sized.

    • The inside measurement of the bracelet is 6.25″ which is pretty tiny. I have small wrists and I think it’ll just fit me also.

  50. I love this box and will use everything in it! I have small wrists too and thought it was just me it had a kind of snug fit on.
