Formio Subscription Box Review – September 2014
Formio is a jewelry subscription service that sends you four accessories and a clutch with every package. When you sign up, you create a “wish list” of accessories and purses to receive in your subscription. You can wear your accessories as long as you like, and then pay for what you want to keep and send the rest back in a pre-paid return envelope.
Because each subscriber’s selections are so personalized, my Formio box will be different than what other subscribers receive. You can see Formio’s complete catalog of accessories here.
Formio sent us this box for review purposes. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).
The Subscription Box: Formio
The Cost: $18 styling fee per month, keep items as long as you like, plus the cost of whatever you choose to keep.
The Products: 4 accessories and a clutch
Ships to: US
Vivre Collection necklace, Shooting Star – value: $28
This necklace is the free gift with subscription by using the code GWPMSA. It’s a pretty, simple, rose-gold necklace just for our readers!
Versaille Collection Clutch: Midnight Velvet – retail value: $78, cost to keep: $52
This clutch is made of black velvet, and the chain is actually gold (I know it’s hard to tell from the lighting). For day-to-day, I prefer to carry larger purses, but it’ll be nice to have this clutch for special occasions, and the velvet works well for Fall and Winter coming up.
Manhattan Collection Necklace, Galleria Mod – retail value: $46, cost to keep: $26
Manhattan Collection, Upper East Sider – retail value: $79, cost to keep: $48
I like both the necklaces, but my favorite is the Galleria Mod necklace – simple pieces work better with my everyday style!
Vivre Collection bracelet, Turquoise Breeze – retail value: $44, cost to keep: $26
This bracelet is really pretty – I like the turquoise, and elastic-brand bracelets always seem to be the easiest for me to wear.
Manhattan Collection earrings, Uptown Stroll – retail value: $54, cost to keep: $26
Verdict: One thing that I like best about Formio is that you create your own wish list of accessories to get, so you know you won’t receive anything you wouldn’t pick yourself. I’d definitely recommend this subscription if you like to wear gold jewelry (there’s definitely not an equal selection of silver vs gold). Personally, I prefer silver accessories but my skin tone is pretty neutral so I can wear both, especially as Fall and the holidays come around (I always seem to embrace metallics more during that time of year!). They also have a nice variety of styles in their selection, so I feel you can find items for both casual and more formal outfits.
