Fancy Box Review – August 2014

This post may contain referral/affiliate links. Read the full disclosure.

Fancy Box Review - August

The Fancy Box is the original Fancy subscription box. They let you customize this box based on interests, but from what I’ve observed I think the only big variations in box depend on your gender preference for the box.

Fancy kindly sent me the August box to review.

Fancy Box Review - August 2014 Cards

This month’s theme is enjoying the last Sundays of Summer. There were also individual cards detailing each item included.

Fancy Box Review - August 2014 Coasters

Chevron Coaster Set – Value $15

I have a lot of coaster sets thanks to subscription boxes, but it looks like these ones will work outside too, so they’ll get some use!

Fancy Box Review - August 2014 Nail Polish

RGB Nail Lacquer in Coral #115 – Retail Value $18

I like the RGB formula, and it’s 5-free. This shade is listed as coral, but it looks more like a fiery red to me – I like it for fall!

Fancy Box Review - August 2014 Laptop

Cool Feet Laptop Lifts – Value $13

These are detachable and lift your laptop to allow for airflow underneath. I don’t usually get super practical items from Fancy boxes, but this is one of them – I need these!

Fancy Box Review - August 2014 Pillow

Queensboro Bridge Cushion – Retail Value $50

This is my favorite item in the box – I love the colors! We received another pillow by the same company in a Coco Rocha box a few months ago and it is so comfortable. (And it’s the only time our dog has loved a squirrel!)

Verdict: This is a great Fancy Box for me – I’ll use every single item, and I love getting a new pillow or two each season to update our living room, so this bridge cushion is perfect.

What do you think of the August Fancy Box?

  1. Good box!!

  2. I was so excited after seeing the pillow in this one that I ordered immediately, but was apparently too late. I’m curious what will be in my September box scheduled to arrive this next week. Still trying to find a spoiler somewhere. 🙂

  3. I changed my kelly rowland box to this one after the disappointment of the august kr box, and was happily surprised that I ended up getting this one instead of a new curation first, because I loved the reveal of this box! I got the RBG polish in “jungle,” and dark teal green that I truly love for fall so I’m very happy!

    • my mistake the color was “Tropic”

  4. Can you still get the August box? I LOVE the pillow!

  5. I like the pillow. Chevron is a popular print this year.

  6. This is a great box! I love every one of those items. I wish I had subscribed!

  7. I was thinking the same thing. I may have to get this box. Really unique items and that cushion immediately caught my eye. I love it!

  8. That cushion looks awesome!
