Rachel Zoe Box of Style Fall 2016 Review + Coupon
The Rachel Zoe Box of Style from The Zoe Report is a subscription box from Rachel Zoe. Each box includes a hero item which is revealed before boxes ship, and other fashionable items and accessories, plus a few beauty products and styling tools, too. I am a huge fan and love her taste, so this is one of my favorite style subscription boxes!
This box was sent to us for review purposes. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).
The packaging on these boxes is always amazing! (Each item is individually wrapped in black tissue paper.)

Donni Charm Wonder Cape – Value $197
This piece was made exclusively for Box of Style, and I think the color blocking makes this a classic piece. The cape/scarf is SUPER soft – exactly the type of material you want for anything you are wrapping yourself in! (It’s made in the USA – 55% Viscose, 38% Cotton, 5% Wool, 2% Spandex.)
B-Low The Belt Gatsby Wrap Belt – Value $105
This belt is made to be wrapped around your waist twice and then tied. It works well with the cape to give it a cinched look, and I’m excited to pair this with a lot of my simple maxi dresses to define the waist and give the pieces a bit of a new look.
UPDATE: This belt is leather, made in the USA, and measures 86 inches long (NOT counting the tassels).
Here is the cape paired with wrap belt:
This look pushes me out of my fashion comfort zone – and I like it!
I also tried styling the cape as a scarf, and I think this is going to be my go-to piece for the winter:
And while I can appreciate a bold look, the piece as a cape isn’t an everyday wear item for me, but as a scarf – definitely!
In these photos I’m also wearing this bracelet:
Rachel Zoe Tassel Bracelet – Value $95
Yes, to a Rachel Zoe Collection item in this box! I’ve been waiting for a Rachel Zoe item, and I hope this trend continues for future boxes. This bracelet is the right color and the right amount of tassel for me too. I can’t find this piece on Rachel’s site yet, but this fringe ring was just listed, and it is 14K gold plated, so I’m assuming the same is true for the bracelet.
(This bracelet is 7 inches long, with a 1-inch extension for a total length of 8 inches.)
Every Box of Style comes with a styling tool, and this one might be my favorite, yet. These are super practical to put in my purse, as I usually realize I have lint all over myself once I arrive somewhere, and not right before I leave the house – so a lint roll at home is useless!
(This set is a 2 pack of 30 sheets each.)
IT Cosmetics Brow Power Universal Eyebrow Pencil – Value $24
IT Cosmetics is one of my favorite beauty brands, and this pencil was the first item I ever sampled from the brand – it got me hooked! This shade is a universal taupe, and you can adjust the shade by how hard you press it. It’s a perfect eyebrow tool for me, and I love that their formulas are free of parabens, phthalates, and sulfates.
Subscribers will receive one of three shades. (I received the shade Mauve-O-Lous Darling.) Unlike the brow pencil, this lip gloss is new to me! In addition to being a gloss, this also provides a stain, so you get a lasting color even when the gloss is gone. This shade worked well for my skintone, and I like that the formula isn’t sticky – my major pet peeve when it comes to lip gloss!
Here are both shades swatched:
Verdict: As always, I’m really impressed with the value of Box of Style, how well everything works together, and I appreciate that Rachel Zoe and the editors at The Zoe Report never play it safe. I know I’m going to get items in this box that I won’t get in any other subscription! And it’s good to be pushed out of my fashion comfort zone a little bit! Plus, having IT Cosmetics in this box is an extra bonus for me – I absolutely love the brand!
