This is a review of the deluxe box.
The packaging on this box is beautiful! The box itself is so sturdy and lovely that I will definitely put it to good use. This is the information sheet that was sent with this package, listing the items within. Although it makes it a little harder to review the contents, I actually think it’s really classy that they don’t list the retail value of each item. I like that they let the contents speak for themselves!
Links and Stones Multi Strand Necklace by RJ Graziano – Value $137.50 (on sale at Neiman Marcus for $103)
I don’t normally like “big” necklaces, but I think in this case I’m going to have to make an exception. This necklace is absolutely stunning!
This should give you a better idea of what the necklace looks like on. I love the pink stones, they look like rose quartz. I can’t think of where I will wear this, but I can’t wait to have an opportunity to wear it somewhere!
Cone Shaped Drop Earrings by Erickson Beamon Rocks – Value $45?
These earrings are gorgeous! I love the colors, and the dangling spikes are really cool. I actually was able to find these online, but only in an old giveaway on EBR’s facebook page, where I learned that this style is from last summer or possibly earlier. I am guessing at the value based on similar EBR earrings. Fortunately, gorgeous never goes out of style!
Concave Textural Ring With Swarovski Elements by Walter Baker – Value $48
Walter Baker is a clothing designer primarily, so I was only able to find a few rings that were designed by him online. The ring did have a tag that says $48, and looking at his other rings online I think the retail value is similar. I love the blue bag it came in! It makes it feel very luxe.
Here’s a closer look at the ring. It is so shiny and it has gorgeous Swarovski studded accents! I’m wearing this ring right now, and I may never take it off!
Alexis Cross Body Bag by Aimee Kestenberg – Value $158 (on sale at Stein Mart for $79.99)
This is real leather, y’all. I’ve never received a real leather purse in a subscription box before. I almost don’t know what to say!
Check out the silver metal tassel, and the leather-wrapped silver chain! This purse is so soft, and it’s elegant, but with an edge. I just love it! I think it is from a few seasons ago, though, from what I could tell about it online.
I cannot wait to start using this purse! I just hope my kids don’t mess it up somehow!
Cross Line Abstract Scarf by Kenzo – Value $300?
Holy Smokes! It’s a Kenzo scarf! Not only that, it’s a modal / cashmere blend! I was completely blown away when I saw this included in the box. I couldn’t find this exact scarf online, but I found a similar one for $310.
Here’s an idea of what the scarf looks like on. I love blue, and I love line art / line prints, so this is a massive, multi-part win for me!
The Verdict: This might be my favorite luxury box I’ve ever received! I am super impressed by the quality of the items, and even the sale value ($576) is astounding. I think I’m totally in love with everything that came in this box! The only thing I think I should mention about this box is that yes, some of the items, maybe even all of them, are from previous seasons. With a name like “Fifth Avenue Style,” I think I was a little surprised to learn that. I expected that most things would be current or maybe even not yet in stores. For myself and most other women, even some currently walking down Fifth Avenue, wearing items from previous seasons is pretty normal, but it’s still something that I think should be pointed out. Otherwise, I am totally over the moon with this box!
