POPSUGAR Must Have Fall 2017 Limited Edition Box – Spoiler #1

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

We have the first spoiler for the POPSUGAR Must Have Limited Edition Fall 2017 box! (POPSUGAR sent us this item early so we can answer any questions you might have about it.)

The POPSUGAR Must Have Limited Edition Fall 2017 box will include:

Hat Attack Lightweight Layer Black Poncho – Retail Value $88

When the weather gets a little chilly, this stylish poncho will keep you cozy atop a dress or pair of jeans. The on-trend cover-up can be work off the shoulder or as a boatneck, depending on how you adjust the incredibly soft material.

This is a soft, 100% acrylic knit, that you can wear as a boatneck style, or diagonal.

Here’s how I’m wearing it:

My fall/winter go-to look is: leggings, boots, long-sleeve mini dress, and a vest. I’ve been thinking about getting a poncho and/or a moto jacket for alternative vest options, and I’m digging the poncho look!

And we’re doing something a little different for this spoiler! Several MSA reviewers are modeling it so you can see how it looks with different styles and body types!

From Jess:

I love the lightweight, open knit of this poncho! It makes for a versatile transition piece leading into chillier months (seriously though — is it fall yet?). It’s also awesome that you can throw it on over a tee shirt and jeans for an instantly polished look, and that’s exactly what I did here. Being that I’m currently 27 weeks pregnant, loose and comfy is the name of my game. I finished the look with my favorite suede mules, some bold earrings, and a unique bamboo clutch to make a bit of a statement.

From Anna:

I’m not super into the boho/festival trend. I wanted to create a look that felt more like the countryside of Sweden than the mainstage at Coachella. To do that, I knew I had to match the breeziness of the poncho with something structured, like this striped, collared shirt. The wood-soled platform shoes have a 70s vibe that complements the retro feeling of the poncho, but again, their simplicity and structure saves the look from seeming too hippie for my tastes.

From Nicole:

Ponchos pair incredibly well with jeans and boots for the fall, but I wanted to try to go in a different direction. I paired the poncho for both looks with an effortlessly cool and classic long sleeved striped top. I couldn’t decide what look was my favorite, so I decided to showcase the poncho and my striped top in two different looks. I wanted to bring a pop of color, so I threw in the whole paint can with my golden Eloquii neoprene pencil skirt. I topped off this bold look with knee high black socks and my T.U.K leopard buckled creeper oxfords. You can’t go wrong with leopard print, am I right?

For my second look, I wanted to feel like Iggy Pop if he wanted to go “Search and Destroy” for a haunted hay ride in a cozy poncho. I put on my favorite ASOS Curve spandex black disco pants and my new Torrid boots that have this fantastic stud and chain detail. You won’t be a forgotten boy or girl in that look!

From Sara:

Wow, the open crochet is lightweight, but also surprisingly warm! I love to pair oversized tops with skinny denim or leggings, so this poncho is a match made in heaven with my beloved faux leather leggings from Trunk Club. Since there are no sleeve holes, I decided to shift the poncho a bit to create a boat neckline, rather than a v-neck in the front and back. Combined with a couple neutral textile accessories in my wardrobe, this outfit is full of texture and getting me excited for the cooler weather heading my way!

What do you think of the first spoiler? Is it helpful to see the spoiler modeled this way?

  1. I keep hoping one day Popsugar will do a LE Spa box. Maybe for Mothers Day or something. Just think, Cozy luxe bath robe, chocolates, fancy stemware, mud mask, oil diffuser, etc etc. SO MANY possibilities. How fun would that be?!? Please Popsugar??

    • I LOVE that idea…. “Queen for a Day”…… we may have to build our own box!!! 😀

    • Oh my goodness. A luxe, non-polyester, real, cozy bath robe is something that would be wonderful and yet I don’t think I’ve ever seen it in a box. Millions of throws, towels, scarves, and blankets, but no robe! I hope someone does this. I would buy at least 2, maybe more!!!

    • OMG! Best idea ever! That box would surely sell out.

    • I’m all in on this theoretical box! haha

    • I would love if they did a spa box even if it was limited edition I would buy it, can never go wrong with doing an at home spa. Especially in winter months 🙂

    • Add me to loving that idea, I would buy that box!

    • It would be nice to see one of these during the holiday season. I would rather have something like this versus the Neiman Marcus boxes. I am so wanting a real silk robe but they are so expensive!

    • Love that idea!

  2. A few thoughts:

    -Glad some of you love it!! Always happy to see PS doing well and people being happy with the boxes.
    – I don’t hate it. I’ll use it. Doesn’t seem very exciting to me, though, nor very fashion-forward. Also not very luxe given that it’s acrylic and RV is $88. But that’s ok, I will wear it.
    -Really wish this was shipping sooner because it would be perfect (cozy!) for the plane to Europe this fall!
    -I am happy that although it doesn’t seem too luxe at $88, that leaves $350+ of value! I also appreciate that the RV isn’t suuuuper inflated like most pieces in these boxes. Although $88 is a little high, it’s to be expected that the values are a little inflated.
    -Love the new approach of all the models! Really helps.
    -I’m a teensy bit tired of the one-size-fits-all stuff. I think that it either looks huge on smaller people or doesn’t fit larger people most of the time, and that’s not really fair to most people. Would much rather they take our sizes and send us something more custom.
    -Hoping for some nice luxe skincare and some fun jewelry!!

    • Good thoughts….. I second your last ……. hoping for some nice LUXE skincare and fun jewelry!!! (I’ve already gifted this spoiler… )

  3. It was SO helpful to see the poncho styled different ways, on reviewers with different body types. You all look fab!

    • I second that! Love this idea and you all look awesome!

  4. You all look great and kudos for showing options for everyone. However, it doesn’t tempt me at all. Not a poncho gal and definitely not a ‘fringe’ gal.

    The next spoiler would have to make me drool in order for me to get this one. That’s okay, I have bought too much lately!

    • Totally agree. Easy pass for me.

  5. I’m more of a blazer girl than a poncho girl, but you all look great!!

  6. Love both the spoiler and the idea to show it on a variety of models. You all look fabulous, and I’m glad I ordered this box.

  7. I love seeing the poncho on different body types! It looks great on everyone!

  8. Everyone looks cute. But, that said, there is no world in which an acrylic poncho is worth $88. There is nothing luxe about that poncho- you really could get lambswool or even a cashmere blend for that price (or on sale for that price). That’s about what I paid for a gorgeous cashmere blend one from garnet hill last year. This looks like something you can easily pick up at target.

    • Love the Garnet Hill brand! In general, I would also prefer natural materials to synthetic. But I also acknowledge that it makes sense for sub boxes to include synthetic materials–many subscribers may have allergies or ideologies (such as veganism) that would prevent them from wearing fabrics like wool or cashmere.

      • Thank you, Jessica!!! There are quite a few of us who prefer bunny hair to stay on the bunny!!! And that goes for any fur, skin, wool, silk, feathers, etc. Do not think that just because the final product may not actually kill the animal (like wool), it is still incredibly cruel. The animal is slaughtered when he or she stops producing the same amount or “quality.” Get all the happy cartoonish images out of your head and instead, watch some “real life” videos. 😔

        • Upon re-reading my comment, I realize that it came off as somewhat confrontational. I didn’t mean it this way. I just meant that advertising and farming collectives are responsible for giving us all “happy animal” advertisements that couldn’t be further from the truth.

          • I feel the same way Punkykiki. Animal based fabrics are not for me.

          • I don’t hate on synthetic fabrics in general (I <3 rayon), but acrylic is from hell. Unless you like itching.

    • I seriously value your honesty. I was thinking the same thing but wondering why most of the people in the comments seemed to be okay with how cheap it looks. If it were cashmere or wool, it would be another story. If this is the only spoiler they intend on giving out, its a terrible one. I hope that they give us a one up else I will be bailing on my plans to purchase a fall box this year.

      • Moe Q …. in total agreement – all the girls looked super cute but – I’ve gifted mine and am hoping that the rest of the box is better – I will forever wait for spoilers will all boxes going forward – and yes, a cashmere wrap can easily be bought for $88 by Thanksgiving at any Macys….

  9. I would never EVER buy a poncho, so I’m happy to get one in a gift box. I love that my subs take me out of my fashion comfort zone! I never thought I’d wear a kimono either; but I’ve gotten tons of compliments on the one from RZBOS!

  10. Thank you so much for having people of different body types on here! It is so great to see someone who looks more like I do to decide whether or not I want to invest this kind of money on a limited edition box.

  11. I usually don’t wear ponchos but darn it if it doesn’t look great on everyone! Just ordered. Thank you for this post!

  12. I had an acrylic black poncho like this years ago and it pilled and snagged on everything. I donated that one to Goodwill and won’t be getting this one. I think BOS has spoiled me for fashion items, last Fall’s poncho/scarf was nicer than this, IMO, and more versatile.

    • Right? BoS nailed it!

  13. I love seeing it modeled on the different women! It’s nice to see a variety. 🙂

  14. Still on the fence…but Liz, I love the boots!! I know you said Amazon, but do you have a link?? Those are definitely a must have for fall!

    • Sorry! I just realized it wasn’t clear that the Amazon text was clickable! Click here.

  15. I’m assuming this box will go on sale at 50% off so I shall pick it up then!

    • As far as I know the LE box has only gone on sale once before, the summer box. It came as a total surprise.

    • The Fall box has sold out the past two years and I have kicked myself for waiting. Not doing it again this year – I went ahead and purchased 🙂

  16. I love ponchos and black is always a great color choice, but this one isn’t my style. This box is a pass for me unless a great spoiler comes out.

    • Same. I got 3 ponchos in that stupid mystery bag from cents of style and they pill and drop fuzz on everything SO bad. They are adorable looking but a total nightmare. The next spoilers would have to be amazeballz!!!

  17. That pinch is too “Grandma” for my taste. Blech.

    • Poncho *

  18. Let me summarize the comments to save people from having to read through them.

    OMG I love it! OMG I hate it! Not another poncho! Yay another poncho! I hate to wear black! I love that it’s black! Why did I waste my money on this?! I’m so stoked that I bought this!!

    I feel like I could put this comment on every spoiler and review for FFF, PSMH and RZBOS.

    • Lol! Too funny – accurate!

    • I think this is a good sum up of the comments on most MSA’s posts! 🙂

      … now back to working my way down all of the comments. 😀

      • 😂🤣😂🤣

  19. Finally! Acrylics are hit or miss – but I love the look of this poncho! I bit and purchased since this box has sold out the past two years. I don’t want to be kicking myself a third year in a row 😉

  20. Love your awesome necklace, Sara!

    • Thanks so much! <3

  21. I’m with Andrea – I NEED that bamboo clutch – the heck with a poncho I’ll never wear. Mine will be up for swap.

  22. I’m a sucker for a poncho. This is very tempting but I’ll wait for a few more spoilers.

  23. Since this is “spoiler #1” does that mean there is going to be a “spoiler #2” in the very near future? 🙂 Thanks!

    • Hi Meg,

      I don’t know when the next spoiler will be, but there will be another one. Hope that helps a bit! 🙂

  24. I love ponchos, just not on me. For now I am glad that I skipped this box. Will wait for the next spoiler.

  25. LOVE IT! I am so glad I splurged on this box and I can’t wait to see what other goodies will be in there!

  26. Liz, I need those boots! Where can I get them?!?!!??

    • Good news – they are pretty cheap! I bought them for $32 + shipping on Amazon (link)

      Hope that helps! 🙂

      • Liz, I love the boots too! Since some of these boxes keep you in the know do you get paid for hyping up their goods?

        • Hi Katie,

          We do use referral/affiliate links in some posts, (see the disclaimer at the top of all posts), but we never do sponsored posts. As a rule, all content we post is info we think MSA readers will be interested in. (And since so many people love POPSUGAR and talking about POPSUGAR spoilers, we thought it would be helpful to MSA readers to do a little more in this spoiler post for a one-size-fits-most item.)

          Hope that makes sense!

          • Great idea Liz! Thanks for doing this. It was great & fun to see how the poncho wears on everyone. 🙂

          • Thank you, Luna!!

      • Hey Liz,

        Thank you for posting the link to the shoes.
        Quick question- how do you feel about the heel height?
        All day shoe or just a night out? lol

        • They weren’t an all-day shoe for me. (At least not at a standing desk!) I think a night-out is a good way to look at it! 🙂

  27. Acrylic is my #1 fabric to avoid so this is an easy pass.

  28. OMG you all look fabulous. That bag that Jess is holding is so nice! What is it and where can I buy it? I need one more spoiler before jumping in – thank you so much for this lovely photo shoot. You are spoiling all of us with what you do.

    • I was going to ask about Jess’ bag too. I’m probably dating myself but I had something like that in the late 70s or early 80s. I want one now!!

    • That’s a Cult Gaia bag. I’ve been drooling over them for months but haven’t bought one yet because I can’t decide on which color to get lol.

      • I am so surprised by the price of that bag. As I said in an earlier comment I had this style bag back when I was about 13 or so ( a looooong time ago). I know my parents wouldn’t have spent that kind of money! We lived in the Bay Area and visited Chinatown a lot and that’s where I probably got mine.

        It was also a cool thing to weave a scarf through it somehow on the inside so you couldn’t see everything inside the bag. Like I said, keep your stuff…you will want it again someday….lol

  29. Love seeing everyone model! It’s super helpful when trying to decide how it will look.

    Is there any way you could tell us how tall everyone is? I’m always worried about the length of things since I’m fairly tall. Likewise, I think those on the shorter end of the spectrum might appreciate it too!

    • Sure. I’m 5’7″. (And wearing 3 inch heel boots). I’ll reach out to everyone else to get height measurements. Thanks for the suggestion! 🙂

      • Thanks! I wonder every time you model something so I’m glad to know!

  30. Forget the poncho – I NEED THAT BAMBOO CLUTCH!!! Seriously though, thanks for having so many different models for the poncho. It really helps!

    • The clutch is called the Cult Gaia Ark large bamboo clutch if that helps!

      • Thanks so much!! *off to buy*

        • Thanks! This shows that you really should keep everything because some day you WILL want it again! Sorry Marie Kondo 😝

  31. I want to buy this box just because of this fun, adorable post. It’s like Super Friends, MSA version.

    • OMG! Love this comment! Thanks, Jenn! 🙂

  32. I have enough sweater and ponchos for someone who lives in Fla. However, the good news is that the box still has over $350 of value left!

    • Ditto on SoCal living – sweaters and ponchos are rarely worn….. BUT, looking forward to what the other $350.00 might bring……. 🙂 GREAT job ON all the looks ladies!!!

  33. Love all the models. Great idea! I bought the box but I am not a fan of ponchos. I’m very short and they tend to come down to my knees. I’ll reserve judgement, however, for when I receive it. I wasn’t too keen on the beach shrug in the resort box this year but it looks amazing with my navy swimsuit and I’ve gotten so much wear out of it this summer.

  34. While this is not “me”, I think you ladies all look amazing in it!! Love how Liz has it styled. Super cute ladies!

    • Thanks so much, Kristy! 🙂

  35. You all rock! Even if I could pull this off it’s not something I would purchase. I guess I’ll hold out for holiday time box.

    • Thanks, Michelle! 🙂

  36. So not into the poncho this spoiler just saved me $100.00.

  37. Sold! That looks amazing on every one of you. Thanks for all the great styling ideas. I have never considered myself a poncho person but I am excited to rock this.

    • So glad to hear this post was helpful! Thank you, Paige! 🙂

  38. I love the spoilers, so glad I went ahead and got the box!!!! Also love the spoiler #1 mini review with different styles and body shapes! So helpful, makes me more exited to receive! Everyone looks AWESOME!

    • Thanks, Jennifer! We had fun with this, so I’m thrilled to hear you’re excited about it 🙂

  39. Y’all are adorable. <3

  40. I really like this spoiler and I LOVE that you showed it on different body types and style. It looks really good on everyone and has many more styling options than I would have originally though. Living in AZ, pieces like this are generally all you need for winter warmth, so I’m happy to have another one.

  41. Love having more people model. Thank you.

  42. Liz, you are my fashion icon in that outfit! 😍😍

    Everyone else looks amazing in the poncho as well and showcasing it off on different body types with different styles is a great idea. Thanks for the fantastic and fun spoiler.

  43. You all look fabulous! What a great idea to have so many models.
    It’s still black, though, and not a colour I ever wear. Particularly in such large amounts.
    Popsugar, you haven’t tempted me with this spoiler.

  44. Y’all did a great job modeling, and I appreciate the multiple styles and body types to get a better idea how I could wear this.

    However, this is an easy pass for me. I’m not loving the wrap in FFF, so I’m definitely not going to spend another $100 on a box based on a poncho alone. I look forward to more spoilers, though! 🙂 Ya never know….

  45. I love it!! Can’t wait for the box and it was awesome to show so many looks on different people!! Thank you!

  46. I love how all you guys modeled the poncho ! That was such a great idea ♥️ It’s so nice to see it on different body shapes .

  47. How cute are you all?! I kind of want to cancel my Sept PSMH and FFF boxes just to get this. The poncho is something I’d definitely use.

    • …….. Amber, if you don’t cancel the others to get this and want only the poncho, please let me know….. this is something I can easily part with….. and I’m very reasonable!! 🙂

  48. I’m a curvy girl and I appreciate all the beautiful models! Look forward to my first LE box!

  49. I appreciate seeing it on different body types. It is okay. Hopefully the rest of the box will be more interesting 🙂 I only ordered one so far but was hoping to order a second one to gift out.

  50. So far so good, this is looks adorable. Hoping that the second spoiler will convince me to purchase! Been really disappointed by my favorite boxes for the last few.
