Marlyn Schiff Chunky Chain Statement Necklace – Value $78

This necklace is nickel and lead free, and it has a serious weight to it! It’s a really well-made necklace and I like that it is all one color – it makes it much more wearable for me since it is such a statement piece. Here is a closer look at the detail:

Deux Lux Croc Embossed Vegan Clutch – Value $58

I’ve received a few Deux Lux bags thanks to subscription boxes over the years, and I am always impressed with the quality. I think the print and embossing on this clutch are so unique! Here is a better look at the texture of the bag:

And there is even an inner zippered pocket:

I think this is my favorite item in the box!

happy-rebel-box-rings

Arbotique Designs Sterling Silver Midi Rings – Value $12

These can be worn a few different ways. I like them stacked on my pinkie finger:

And they work as midi rings, too:

happy-rebel-box-eyelashes

Eyelure Texture 154 Lashes – Value $8

Bonus candy!

These are some serious faux lashes! Here is a closer look:

Someday in the future, I hope false eyelashes don’t intimidate me so much!

happy-rebel-box-essie

Essie Cashmere Matte Spun in Luxe Nail Polish – Value $8

This nail polish is a midnight blue with subtle shimmer and a matte finish. It’s darker than I usually wear, but I totally see how it fits the Happy Rebel Box!

Verdict: This box has a retail value of about $164. That’s pretty good for a $100 box – especially their first one. Personally, I would have preferred less of the value to come from jewelry, but I get that it totally makes sense for the theme – girls night out. I also appreciate that this box doesn’t feel “matchy” but all pieces work well together.

My favorite item in this box is the clutch – I have nothing like it and I absolutely love it!

I’m hoping to see more gold items and home items in future boxes – that’s more in line with what I was expecting based on some of the initial promotional images.

What do you think of the first Happy Rebel Box? What do you want to see in future boxes?

  1. I really dug this box & will be waiting, watching & considering. can’t leap in that fast at that price, but if I see another round I like…

  2. I actually really like that bag and the coordinating nail polish – not that I have any use for them, but I am so tempted to buy them from the shop!

  3. I loved this box. The only thing I won’t use in the box is the false eyelashes. I don’t think they misled anyone with the video of what they posted and what type of items to expect. I think they did a great job with their first box and hoping their second box is even better. Are people expecting goth type of items because it clearly states modern, chic, edgey style for women. I’ve gotten so many compliments on the items I’ve worn from the box. Great job Happy Rebel looking forward to your next box.

  4. I’m holding out for a sub box like this to finally do a techy related theme for women…not just pure office supplies etc like I see in a lot of boxes and especially not ear buds found in every box. I want some serious rebel geeky tech swag.

    • Great suggestion, Cat! What types of items would you most like to see in a tech box? Would love to hear your ideas!

  5. I really love this box. Every item is beautiful. I love the jewelry. Liz, don’t be intimidated by lashes, their so pretty on once you get the hang of it. We all started just like you. I remember my first time I wore them and didn’t realize one was stuck on my lid. Did my husband tell me anything? No… He thought that was the new look. ?. But now I have it down and I enjoy them so much. I hope one day you will be able to enjoy them too. ?

  6. Wow. Where did all the negative reviews go? There were like 43 comments. That’s pretty shady.

    • Maybe some were tired of voicing the incredible disappointment at how much we wasted on this box – only to have the owner respond to each message

      • True. The owner seemed interested in what people had to say. I respected that….up until all those reviews were deleted.

        • I don’t think reviews were deleted. Sure, interest is great and can be respected, but a little TOO much to respond to every comment. Some people were really unhappy spending $380 and this was the first box that landed on the doorsteps (with drugstore polish). The other post (reveal – with the comments) is still there. That was the reveal (some time back). This is the actual review of Liz’s box.

          • I agree- way too much owner interaction on the reveal. It gets inappropriate and uncomfortable after a few of those.

      • At least I know I’m not completely nutz yet. I made a post, and then all of a sudden when I got notification of responses, there were a million posts and nowhere was mine to be found. LOL, then I looked again and there were only a few responses. I just figured I’d finally lost it for good. 😀

      • Oh no, I apologize! I didn’t realize that there were two different post! You are totally right.

  7. I’ll have my eye on this one! Right up my alley but not currently in the budget.

  8. I was really happy with this box and it ships from a neighboring town here in Texas!!! The clutch matches the Deux Lux wallet that was paired with the weekender bag that Deux Lux offered not too long ago, it was a great set to travel with recently! Looking forward to the next one!

  9. As a former rebel… This is very generic and overpriced.
    Spend $50 at Target and get a much edgier look, with a cooler necklace selection!

    • I am and always will be a rebel (and I bet you still have a rebel heart!) and I agree 100% with you on this. Generic, overpriced, nothing “rebel” related in the least. IMO completely boring. (My 77 year old mum who never in her life was a rebel wears nail varnish in those types of colours, they’re so accepted now.) What, you stick a skull (completely mainstream BTW) on the box and it becomes a “happy rebel” box? Too bad they don’t understand what the word rebel means.

    • Yeah, former punk girl who still keeps her first pair of steel toed boots locked away in a special box in the attic…

      This seems about as edgy and “rebellious” to me as a small town Southern sorority sister in 1963. Dullest edge I have ever seen!

      And I am of the mind if you have to advertise yourself as “edgy” and “rebellious” then you likely are not. The products should show the edge without the words.

      • Odd, never got notification of your response?
        Wear those steel toed docs! Hey, you can always say they’re classics now as they have become classics.

        Yup, no “edge” at all, great description, gave me a good giggle?

        Agreed, if you have to advertise as “edgy and rebellious” then you either better understand what those words mean, or are a poseur. (Gah, haven’t said that in decades!) Even my teen says things like “I know you’re cool because you don’t say you are, me too”, that pretty much sums it up! ⚡️Jet

  10. I like the bag, I think spine when I look at it! But I work for a chiropractor so that may be why!

    • I thought so too and I am not in the medical field…(although one of my degrees is in biology).

  11. Personally, I was hoping for more of a skull/goth/rock vibe. The necklace is the right color, but I’d never wear it. It’s tacky looking. The purse is nice I guess but again, not my style.

    I’d love to see home decor, but I totally don’t think this box should ever have gold anything in it.

  12. Better than I thought it would be. Of course, I’m one of those weird people who lurves false eyelashes. The necklace is really pretty, not so much rebel to me, which I like.
