The packaging in this box is always so beautiful!

This is the invoice that was included in the package. Even though it would be helpful in terms of reviewing this box if they would list values, I have to say, I think it’s kind of classy that they don’t.

Allen Bucket Handbag by Sorial – Value $150

This bag is breathtaking. It’s an off-white with gold woven into it, and I just can’t stop looking at it. This is so beyond perfect for summer. I don’t know if I’ve ever loved a purse so deeply.

Brooklyn Cuff by Evocateur – Value $338

Holy smokes, look at how beautiful this bracelet is! Sterling silver! Wow! Unfortunately, this stunning cuff barely fits on my wrist, so I’m not 100% sure what I’m going to do with it. Especially now that it’s one of the most valuable pieces of jewelry I own. I did notice on Evocateur’s website that it comes in different sizes, so maybe I can exchange it somehow.

5th-ave-summer-comb

Encrusted Comb by Colette Malouf – Value $134

Look at this gorgeous comb, encrusted with swarovski crystals! Are combs making a comeback? I sure hope so; I love the way they look!

Dream Catcher Pendant Necklace by Rebecca Minkoff – Value $148

Dream catchers, long necklaces, and gorgeous jewelry are three of my favorite things, so of course I love this necklace! I am also a big fan of Rebecca Minkoff’s designs in general. This is a rhodium plated brass with glass and resin accents.

Threader Earrings by Rebecca Minkoff – Value $58

One reason I am a fan of Rebecca Minkoff’s designs is that they are often really funky and cool, and these beautiful rhodium-finish earrings are a great example of that. I added the second picture just to show how insanely shiny they are! I love them!

Verdict: I am totally blown away by this Limited Edition Summer Time Box from 5th Avenue Style! Everything in it is beautiful, seasonal, and high quality! Additionally, everything in it is from the current season of the respective designers. Which makes it even more amazing that 5th Avenue Style was able to offer a box of items with a combined value of $828 for $270! It’s also definitely worth noting that $828 is well over the promised minimum value of $700. I am completely thrilled with this box!

What do you think of 5th Avenue Style’s Limited Edition Summer Time Box? Were there any variations with what you received?

  1. I just checked out the cuff that I really, really wanted. It costs $348.00. Conisdering that I have a kind-of weird sense of style, it might be cheaper for me to just wait to see what people are getting and only buy the items that suit me.

  2. Hi Anna, thanks for the review! I love seeing what others get with this box. I also received a Sorial handbag in the same woven design, but a crossbody style and taupe color. It’s really nice, but just not “me” so up for swap it goes when I get a chance to take some photos. I received the museum art bangle (was really hoping for the koi!) and while it’s so beautiful, it’s too large, so up for swap it will also go. Here’s a link to it on their site:
    http://evocateurstyle.com/category/bangles/art-flower-bangle Just in case you’re interested, I’d love to swap for your cuff.

  3. I love that bracelet. If anyone wants to swap for it please let me know!

  4. Anna what a pretty bag and I’m so glad to see someone else’sbox. I got a pink Sorial tote that was perfect for me. If anyone wants to compare boxes I posted mine on the forum under 5th ave. You can save time using the search feature there. If you decide to get this box make sure you fill out the survey about what you like and your favorite styles. My box was a great match for me and my jewelry was more toned down which is what I requested. I love my Evocataur cuff( I requested the Koi one) and that was the main reason I bought the box. I have larger wrists and the size large fit me. Thank God or I would have been bummed. Also they usually have a spoiler item that you can chose yourself so if you do want that choice subscribe early.

    • Is there an option to choose gold only jewelry? I’m allergic to any other metals. I’d love to try this box out one day but I want to make sure I will be able to wear the jewelry.

  5. I love love the bracelet and my wrists are very small–I will try to swap!

  6. I keep checking 5th Ave reviews to see how they’re progressing. While this is the best overall box I’ve seen from 5th Ave in six months, $270 is approx double what I’d pay.

    The children’s size bracelet can only be worn by a very specific group of people, otherwise it’s a dust collector. The bag simply looks cheap, and actually has a low retail value. Like the idea of a dreamcatcher necklace and hope hair combs do come back, (I prefer a pair vs. one oversized) but the quality does not match the stated value.

    The sub has included a few current pieces rather than its typical ‘so last season’ accessories, that’s a plus. Still, at this price point, I can find current season sales and curate for myself.

    5th Ave does have plenty of potential, more so for those who enjoy the surprise factor. I’ll keep them on the back burner.

    • I agree. Hopefully the bag looks and feels better in real Life than it looks in the pictures. As for the bracelet, not my personal taste but I do like the colors. The jewelry, I’m actually impressed with – I usually like dainty jewelry but those are nice and eye catching. I don’t want to be mean and bash this subscription, but all these items, I can find and buy equally good quality for much less than half the price of this box. I understand that it’s lux but it’s not enough for me to spend that much money on potential items. Good review though!

      • It doesn’t sound realistic that you can get five pieces of this kind of accessories for $135. I can not wear cheap jewelry; I prefer to buy it only from reputable sources – to make sure the quality is good, and it is safe for my skin.

        • It is called overstock.

          This box seems to bring out a real snobbery in people. I am not sure why. I don’t have the same taste as Anna, but I am happy she likes what she gets. She is sweet and writes thoughtful reviews. I get a little tired of people calling the things she likes low quality and cheap when they have actually never seen the products.

          • Dear Nelliebelle,
            I completely agree with you and am afraid that my previous comment was misunderstood.
            I actually wrote in favor of 5th Avenue Style and tried to explain that it is not possible to buy similar quality branded items for $135 as some people here suggest. Also, I do consider 5th Ave Style a reputable source and one of the few I can really trust.

  7. Bucket bags aren’t my thing but I’m really intrigued by this box. Tempted to sign up for the next one.

  8. Great job, 5th Avenue!

  9. I want that bag! Anyone want to swap theirs?

  10. Purse isn’t my style but its still cute, Love the jewlery, but I dunno about that comb, $134, really? I know Swarovski is pricey but knowing me I’d break the thing and lose all the pretty lol!

  11. OMG that cuff. It’s amazing!!!!!!!!!

  12. That bag!

  13. I am in love with that bag and the threader earrings!

  14. If I got this box (assuming I would ever be able to spend $270 on a sub box without my husband flipping out!), I would have been overjoyed with just the purse & the cuff (the Rebecca Minkoff jewelry is a stellar bonus though!). They are both so incredibly gorgeous! The colors in the cuff take my breath away. It’s so intricate & obviously well made. The purse is beautiful and I definitely want one for myself! What a fabulous box!

  15. After having box envy on a daily basis, I’m shocked that nothing in this box is my style. The pieces are all quite different, but I wouldn’t have kept anything.

  16. I am in love with that purse!

  17. I don’t think I have enough to swap for that bracelet-but I would LOVE it ?!!!

  18. That bag is stunning!
