This is a review of the deluxe box.
The packaging on this box is beautiful! The box itself is so sturdy and lovely that I will definitely put it to good use. There was an information sheet that was sent with this package (not pictured), listing the items within. Although it makes it a little harder to review the contents, I actually think it’s really classy that they don’t list the retail value of each item. I like that they let the contents speak for themselves! Note that what I was sent may be very different from what other subscribers were sent.
Squiggle Scarf by Vivienne Westwood – Value $100-ish (link is to a similar scarf)
I love this scarf so much I had a dream about it. It’s 100% silk, and in my dream I washed it at some awful setting, and when I pulled it out of the dryer (gasp!), it was tattered and pilled. It’s a Vivienne Westwood, y’all! I could cry tears of pure joy.
(I’m so sorry my finger is stained with paint in the second picture! See my upcoming Surprise Ride review for more details.)
Esha Slim Line Bangle and Esha Round Gemstone Bangle by Rivka Friedman – Value originally $150 each, most recently $35 each
These are no longer for sale on the Rivka Friedman site, or anywhere that I can find them for sale online. I did manage to find some out-of-stock remnants of these items online from the most recent sales, and this is about what they were going for at that time, so I believe these values to be fairly accurate. In any case, these are very pretty bangles, and they have a nice weight to them! They are elegant but not boring.
Pave Gem Fan Back Earrings by Rebecca Minkoff – Value $58
I love these earrings! I am slowly getting on board with the three-piece earring movement, and turquoise is one of my favorite colors in jewelry. I can tell these will be getting lots of use!
I love everything from House of Harlow, and I might love this necklace most of all! I’m sorry I keep saying I love everything – I have a big heart. These pendants have a good weight to them even though they are still pretty dainty. This necklace is 100% my style, too!
Element Clutch Air by Lancaster Paris – Value $88
Although this clutch is not completely my style, it is so beautiful and soft, and wonderful real leather. I really appreciate that this has a cross-body strap, too. I get so excited to get quality purses in subscription boxes!
Verdict: I’m more than a little obsessed with 5th Avenue Style! This month, three of the pieces were easily identified as currently available online at original retail prices. This is exciting to me because I feel like some of the pieces I’ve received in the past have been from distant seasons, and I’m glad to see some change. Regardless of the season, everything 5th Avenue Style sends me is quality and stylish! I will wear everything they sent this month, and I especially adore the necklace and the scarf. And the earrings! The value this month adds up to about $368 using sale prices (and obviously much more using original retail prices). It blows my mind that they can provide such a high value for $159!
