GiGi New York Rachel Convertible Clutch, Retail Value: $195

This design is an exclusive collaboration with Box of Style!

It’s a foldover leather crossbody bag with removable straps and a tassel zipper pull.

I’m SO impressed with the quality of this bag! The navy leather is gorgeous, and the craftsmanship is phenomenal!

I’m all about cross body bags lately – I LOVE not having to hold onto a purse, so this is my ideal hero item. (And I didn’t have any navy bags!)

Open flat, this bag measures about 13 X 10.5 inches.

And the gold hardware!

This bag can double as a laptop case, too.

Here it is with a mini laptop. It also fits my 13″ MacBook Pro perfectly. (And works as an iPad case, too!)

Here it is on:

The purse definitely has a luxe fancy vibe, but I think you can dress it down easily with jeans, too. What do you think?

La Soula Two Diamond Ring Set, retail value: $176

These are made with 14K Gold Plated Brass. They are based on a ring size 6, but they are super easy to adjust.

And there are teeny little diamonds embedded in the gold!

Very minimal sparkle + diamonds in a subscription box? Yes, please!

I decided to try wearing them as a classic + midi combination:

What do you think? How are you planning on styling them?

Oribe Supershine Light Moisturizing Cream – Value $52

Full-sized Oribe, AKA a beautiful and elusive subscription box find! I get excited even for samples of Oribe, so this is awesome!

If you haven’t sampled Oribe before, you are in for a treat! It’s a super-luxe hair care brand that makes your hair look and smell amazing! This cream is perfect for everyday use, too. It made my hair super soft without adding any weight. And again, the scent! So fab!

NUDESTIX Pulse Gel Color in Pulse – Value $24

NUDESTIX is another beauty brand I love! (I’ve purchased full-size versions of their lip crayons after sampling them in subscription boxes.)

And each NUDESTIX pencil comes in their signature tin with a mirror inside the lid.

And it also comes with a sharpener!

This color is described as a “glossy rose with plum undertone.”

It’s moisturizing, shiny (but not sticky/glossy), and provides a good wash of color. I love this for my lips, but you can also use it on your cheeks.

Here it is swatched:

Odeme Gold Catchall Tray – Retail Value Listed $45

(I couldn’t find this specific tray size on the Odeme site, so I’m listing the value from the card.)

This tray measures 5 X 7 inches with an inch edge.

It’s a porcelain tray covered in a gold metallic finish – so pretty!

And it’s the perfect size to be a catchall on your nightstand or to add a metallic accent to your coffee table.

Skinesque 3-Step Brightening Charcoal Mask – Value $37.50

This brand is new to me, and I love that they formulated this set without: parabens, sulfates, phthalates, mineral oil, and synthetic dyes!

Inside you’ll receive 5 individual masks – and each mask has 3 steps!

First, you use the Gentle Foaming Cleanser to make sure you skin is completley clean. This was just as gentle as I was expecting, and the formula is creamy and hydrating. (It didn’t foam that much for me, though.)

Next, the Hydra Essense! “Hydra+ Essence is formulated with niacinamide and adenosine to provide intense hydration for healthy and supple skin. Sodium hyaluronate retains moisture to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and promotes collagen formation.” I applied this to my face and neck, patting it in, then it was mask time!

Step 3: The charcoal mask! You wear this for 15-20 minutes, and let the excess serum absorb into your skin when you remove the mask.

I found the whole process to be really relaxing! My skin felt hydrated and soft after, and I love that you get the whole set in a travel-ready pack!

Verdict: I’ve been saying this every season lately, but this is my favorite Box of Style box of all time! The cross-body bag is something I would have paid retail value for – it’s that good! And I’ll be wearing it all the time! The delicate rings fit my jewelry tastes perfectly, and all the beauty products are great formulas and items I will use daily. (AND they have a luxe home item in the box, too!)

And this box has a retail value of $529! Every piece feels high-quality and luxe, too. I’m so impressed!

What do you think of the Fall Box of Style?

  1. I am selling a compilation BOS box w/the following 8 items: from Summer ’17 box- Helena Quinn Custom Kimono, Sole Society Panama straw hat, Raen Durante tortoise sunglasses; from Spring ’17 box- Symbology scarf & Stella Artois Chalice glass; from Winter ’16 box- D.L. & Co Birch candle, & Juicy perfume sample; from Fall ’16 box- B-low the belt leather Gatsby wrap tassle belt. *All items are new/never used or worn & in orig packaging (of course some things were tried on). I will sell box for $65 OBO. I also sell on Poshmark & am willing to list there if anyone is interested & buying on Poshmark makes it easier. Just trying to weed through all of the stuff arriving & not being used. P.S. the candle is of excellent quality & smells amazing. I suffer from migraines & am sensitive to smells, so I don’t anticipate ever lighting it. Please let me know if you are interested. Thanks!

    • Still have combo box? Could not find it on Poshmark

    • Marissa, I will buy!

    • I’m interested. robinysix at Thanks

    • Do you still have this? Interested if so. barbdibble64 @ gmail dot com

    • That’s a GREAT combo!

      I’m interested too if you don’t any takers vmarias at

      (I LOVE my kimono, but it’s so fragile. I’m terrified I’ll snag the sh*t outta it.)

    • Hi i’m interested. Let me know if it’s still available. I’m also on Posh.

  2. Really disappointed to hear the Odeme and La Soula tray/rings have such terrible quality for some. And if some of them are arriving in terrible condition, I’m wary of how the ones arriving in “good” condition will hold up. Really turns me off to this box. But thank you for those that wrote about their experience. I was so close to subbing just for the rings.

    • I am one of those subscribers who had issues with the quality of the tray and the rings. It’s terrible. My tray had black scuff marks and the silver on the rings had two different finishes. The teensy weensy diamonds is an overstatment. I couldn’t even seen them with a magnifying glass. I have other La Soula pieces and it was the reason why I was so excited about this box. The quality of the leather is not good either. It’s made in China and feels like cheap “Made in China” leather. I’m probably going to cancel. This subscription is too pricey to have such terrible quality issues.

    • I loved the rings but have lost both already! They just slid off my fingers and I don’t know where it happened. I don’t believe they are worth $176 so I’m not that upset about it, but be careful with the rings ladies!

    • I’m on the wait list for the swap site but I want to put this entire box up for swap. I’m very disappointed in everything and tried to cancel but they had already billed me 😐.

  3. I am not a fan of the embossed print on the purse/laptop case. However, I have been craving a navy handbag and crossbody styles are always a perk when they aren’t too small. This is a wonderful size. Just wish the grain was solid or suede and not a weird embossed print design. Ahhh, so anyway. You cannot see the diamond in the delicate rings unless you hold it close to the eye. They are precious and fun and easily adjustable. I’m a sucker for a good mask. This 3 part design is a fun new item to try. I used one last night after boating all day. My skin is super soft. And, instead of one, this is a multi pack. Sadly, this is my favorite item in the box. I also adore cute colored catch-all trays, but mine is badly scratched. Too noticeable to use. Looks second hand or from a dime store basement with all the deep scratches. Otherwise, had it been in new condition, it would have been a favorite. I reached out, with close up photos, and asked to return my defective tray for a new one. We shall see how that nets out. I’m sure hoping I can swap it for a new one. I really like it. Box is good. Would have raved about the crossbody had it been solid or suede. Love the navy! Great choice. Just not a fan of that pattern. Not ugly at all–just not my personal taste.

    • Does anyone call customer service when they get damaged items so they are replaced?

      • I didn’t call, but emailed customer service about replacements and they were very helpful. My replacement tray arrived damaged and so ended up getting a partial refund because they ran out of inventory. I’m still waiting on replacements for the rings from La Soula.

    • I agree on the bag. I’m not a fan of super-glossy and croc-print, but had it been a suede or other solid it would be much more my style. 🙂

  4. This is a fabulous box! I love, love, love the bag. It is smaller than my usual bags, but will be nice traveling or on a day where I don’t need to carry a lot of things. I love the tray, and it looks great on my desk. I’m a beauty junkie so I’m totally happy with all those items. The rings were my least favorite item, but they look good and will make a lovely gift. I have not been disappointed with any of my RZBOS boxes!

  5. I would not purchase this box for the rings. One of my rings was severely tarnished, and the diamond quality is atrocious. The bag is lovely, but definitely not the shade of blue that was advertised. It is more of a midnight navy, imo.

    • It’s not tarnished. It’s that they’re not properly coated & the brass is showing. I, too, have a defected ring. Mine is “gold.” My Orebe gold tray is defective also. It has a large black scratch on it & a smudge that can’t be removed. I’m upset, as this is my 7th box with them & their quality has always been great. Until now. I reached out to their C.S. so we’ll see how they handle it. Sigh.

      • I received my box yesterday and both of my gold rings are severely tarnished, so upsetting. Ive bought cheeper rings that don’t even compare to the condition of these rings. Its a joke. Very upset. In addition my gold tray had markings, looked like fingerprints all over when i took out of box. I sprayed pledge on it and looks a little better. However, overall I am disappointed in the condition of items in this box.

      • I highly suggest that everyone and it seems there are a lot of people, contact BOS and either get a refund sending the box back or at the very least express in great detail the unsatisfactory of quality, etc…..demanding refunds is probably the best way to insure that she/the company doesn’t continue to use cheap materials in the future, we would hope anyways.
        If people don’t than this will continue to go on in the future and unfortunately happen again.
        It isn’t enough for people to just discontinue or stop receiving the subscription.
        Just my opinion…..

    • One of my “Gold” rings was also severely tarnished, and the other was just slightly ugly, It looks black where the diamonds are located. My tray had scratches AND fingerprints on it. I did contact cs about the rings, they responded within a day and said they would send out a new set.

      • UPDATE: The replacement set I received is of the same low quality

      • Grrrrreat! If that happens to me, I’m contacting BOS for a refund. This is ridiculous!

    • I got a “2-toned” ring too. Looks like from a bubble gum machine- soooo cheap. I need to message CS. Ugh.

      • I had to contact cs several times to get a replacement for a defective piece of jewellery. When I finally got it they mailed it incorrectly and I had to pay a charge to get it from the post office. When I told them they would not cover the charge! Will never buy another box from a company like that. Hope your experience is better than this, but brace yourself!
        All the best

      • I received a response today from RZ customer service about my damaged rings which apologized and copied La Soula. La SOula then forwarded it to someone there who is going to mail me new rings. But I agree with others that the quality of the replacements will be in question since so many were damaged/tarnished/badly dipped or whatever.

      • Ugh!! I haven’t heard back yet from CS on my rings or tray issues. At this point I really think they should be giving us a partial refund on this box. What a hassle. I’m not happy with the quality of the clutch either. This whole experience is enough to get me to cancel my subscription. I expected way more from RZ.

  6. My box arrived today which was a surprise as I had no notification. Rings were tarnished, which was not as upsetting as the purse. Once I removed the tissue paper, the tissue fibers are stuck to the purse, almost embedded in the leather. Such a bummer 🙁 Just have to see what customer service tells me as they usually take a few business days.

  7. Do NOT purchase this box if the rings are a big selling point for you. My rings arrived EXTREMELY tarnished, there was little to no gold on them at all. I have reached out to CS but BOS is not known for great response to customer complaints.

    • UPDATE: I emailed CS Friday afternoon and received a response on Monday evening saying that they were shipping me new rings and provided me with a contact person at La Soula if I had any issue with the new rings.

  8. Box of style customer service is the absolute worst. They trick their customers into signing up for a subscription and then make it absolutely impossible to cancel. I’ve been contacting them for three weeks six different times with no response, I’ve even insgrammed them, etc and finally had to file a dispute with my bank. No way this company will last if they have people treating customers like this!

    • Stop payment. If you laid through PayPal just call them or your bank or credit card. I had to do it with stupid Spotify. I suddenly couldn’t log into my account and there’s NOWHERE to contact CS on their site. They were taking the monthly fee so I just called PayPal. Easy.

      • Thanks! Did you get a refund? I finally found a customer service number on a message board and got mine cancelled but they refused to give me a refund. Such a joke! I got the fall box and its total crap so I tossed most of it.

      • No. PayPal didn’t refund my money. That would’ve had to come from Spotify. I also would’ve had to somehow prove I couldn’t log into my account. I was only out like $20. I swear there’s no CS info anywhere on Spotify. They have message boards and crap to help customers figure stuff out. I’d never sign up with them again. One day my account didn’t work. My user name and PW are always pretty much the same. I knew what it was and the darn site would not take it.

  9. So I saw a discount code for $20 off FOX20 if anyone is interested! You may have to use a new email but it worked for me.

  10. Last month I was erroneously charged 8 times (at $107.24 each) for one fall box. I contacted CS about the billing error right away when the charges were still pending, but all 8 charges ended up going through. My checking account was credited back in full the following week, but CS’s lackluster response (a “sorry for the inconvenience” email) really disappointed me. BOS is a lovely subscription box and the value is certainly there, but I won’t be purchasing it again after this experience. I understand billing errors are not uncommon with BOS, so thought I’d give everyone a heads up.

    • I don’t think the box has dedicated CS. Rachel Zoe also has her fashion line and online shop and I think the same people who do CS for it end up doing CS for the box as well when they have time.

  11. Were you able to zip the bag after you put your MAC in it? I have a 13″ Mac Book Pro and cannot get it zipped.

    • I really like the navy purse, but figuring out how to use it properly has been challenging. My laptop is too big, so I have been filling it half up and then folding over the top with the tassel. It is quite chic with dark washed jeans. Today I acquired too many items in my travels so I just stashed them in and zipped the top closed. It turned into a rectangular slouchy bag. The straps are at a unusual mid angle, but wearing it cross body seems to work.

      I also like the tan small purse that has 2 tassels from past season. It is tiny, however, but cute. One of the tassels came unraveled, and the owner of the company handled the issue and was was wonderful. They repaired it at no charge and shipped it back to me.

      Love the Helena Quinn kimono! Love the fact that the back has darts and shaping. It fits me beautifully. I purchased a black beach dress to wear under the red caftan from a couple of summers ago and it is perfect under the Quinn kimono.

      I had no issues with the golden tray and duo of rings. I thought they forgot my diamonds until I got out my magnifying glass. i wear them on either side of a diamond and ruby channel band. Looks fab.

  12. I would get this box, but unfortunately the price is a little too high for me, even when it’s seasonal. Too bad because I like almost everything in this box.

  13. Hi ladies,

    Can you please tell what is the shipping weight of the box. Thank you

    • 4.1 lbs 🙂

      • Thanks !

    • Mine says 4.6 and my confirmation also said an Odeme Compact Mirror was in the box. Did anybody else get this?

      • If you’re an annual subscriber, you get an extra item in your last box. I guess this is it. The summer one included a passport holder for annuals ending in the summer. I asked their CS about that and that was the response they gave me. Hope this helps!

      • Are you an annual subscriber? The compact mirror might be the annual gift this time around.

  14. I wasn’t sure I wanted this box, but after this review now I’m kind of on the fence. If it goes $30 off like the last one did, I’ll definitely get it!

  15. I just got my box today and I LOVE LOVE LOVE it! Everything is perfect! I for one am excited to use everything in this box. I don’t normally buy products like these, but I love getting them as a surprise. The bag is gorgeous and will get a lot of use this fall! Rings stated RV is a little over priced imo, but still pretty. Cannot wait to try out the Oribe (totally something I would never think to purchase for myself, but I’m totally excited to use this!). The lip gel is a nice color and the tray will come in handy. I am already excited for winter’s box, haha!

  16. If only I didn’t just quit my job and wasn’t arguably unemployed right now, this box would be mine!!!
    Another beautiful BOS!

  17. Does anyone know if the add on’s ship separate? My box was missing the add on that I was charged for.

    • E-mail them. I had the same problem last box ) actually I only got one of my add ons) they sent them in a separate shipment at no charge of course. But you have to be on top of it. Their CS IS THE WORST!

  18. Going to ask a dumb question – With the Nudestix, am I missing something? Not sure I understand the sharpener… How do you get more of the color tip to come out? I’m assuming there’s more in there somewhere as it’s a full size product but for the life of me, I’ve twisted and pushed everything I can think of, and nothing… Can a girl get a little help please? 🙂

    • You just sharpen it like a regular pencil.

  19. So glad I canceled FFF. I wanted to decide which one was actually worth my money after seeing this months reviews. I am going to purchase this box, and subscribe to this one instead. I think the quality of the items are just much better than what I had been receiving in FFF. FFF is not bad, its just not for me.

    • Same here! This is the last season on my annual FFF sub, and I have $25 credit I’m going to use on the next box, and then I’m cancelling that one in favor of this one… I have both, but this is more my style…

  20. Thank you for reviewing this!! I’ve been dying to see a review… I am now over the moon excited for mine to come!!! I got the shipping notice a couple days ago. Eeeek!

  21. I am new to this box…how much of a discount does it typically end up going for, or does it usually sell out? Thanks!

    • Wait awhile because this box ends up being discounted for $20-$30 in several weeks. It’ll be posted here when the price drops.

  22. I like the bag a lot but there’s nothing else in the box I really need. I would have preferred to see another fashion item rather than the tray – I’ve already gotten two trays from various PopSugar boxes so I don’t need another!

    • I know! Trays are such frequent box items. I mean, I get why, but I have more than enough now! They make good gifts, at least, but at this point they’re not a very creative item to include. I loved the phone battery from PopSugar – I used it during Harvey! That was a verrry useful, unique, and stylish item to boot!

  23. Yup, glad I didn’t get this box. I know I’m in the minority. The color of the bag was …again…not as advertised. Loved the color of the original spoiler for the bag, but really dislike the color of the bag Liz received. To me it’s dull and not luxe. To all who love it though, enjoy.

    • You’re not in the minority at all. I personally don’t like the bag. I hate that kind of texture, and it’s too small for me. I think it’s overpriced and I too don’t need another tray! It must be nice to get these sub boxes for free just to give an obviously favorable opinion.

      • It looks, feels, and smells very “not leather” to me. Has an outlet mall/factory store nuance.

      • I agree. The purse feels like pleather at best. I thought it was plastic when I first felt it.

  24. This box looks amazing. I was carrying the white bag from summer 2015 and the card case from winter 2017 today. I like that the curation for BOS is luxe but also pretty timeless.

  25. Hi everyone! I have a question for my fellow plus sized gals who get this box: how do things fit? I’m afraid that the bag strap will be too short and the rings too small. 😭😭 But I wanted the bag and rings sooo bad!!!

    • I read that the rings are adjustable. I am a size 8/9 so I am interested to see how that goes. I love everything about this box, including those rings!!! I really don’t see an issue with the bag. It hangs low on the model, which I think is ideal for all shapes and heights. I think it will be ok. My box is going to be delivered next week (east coast here) so I can’t wait.

      • I’m a size 8/9 for rings and the fit is fine.

    • Usually everything is just fine! I actually haven’t had any issues, I love this box

    • My personal feeling is that tiny bags look silly on a big frame… I’m about a 14-16 and small bags only make me look bigger..and the bag look tinier.
      Last box we got a kimono and of course, it’s one size and it fits over the arms but is too small to tie shut 🙁
      This fall box is really disappointing… they usually have much better stuff. So lame. I’m bummed, as this is the only box I get, but I passed on it this time.

    • I’m 5’6″ and wear a 16. I’m curvy so I do not like crossbodies that sit high on my waist. I didn’t measure the strap drop when I put it on for you but it truly would work as a crossbody were I to use it. At the tightest setting, it goes on easily and sits exactly where I would want it with the fold just an inch below my waist.

    • The rings are adjustable. I’m also a ring size 8 (or 9 depending upon hand or finger). Had no trouble fitting rings where I want them. However, Like the purse, I was not as fond of them in person. More Poshmark inventory.

  26. This box is one of the best lifestyle boxes I have seen. I am impressed and excited!

  27. This lipstick color is right up my alley, but I wish RZ would include makeup from some more higher-end, fashionable brands like Chanel, Tom Ford, YSL, CD (a girl can dream lol). Or better yet, she should just focus more on fashion (clothes, jewelry, cute accessories, etc) and include few to none beauty products in my opinion. However, this is a pretty decent box overall, and I’m excited to receive it. Last year’s winter box is still my favorite BOS of all time. Jumping ahead here, but I’m kinda hoping for a stunning evening clutch with crystals in this year’s winter box!

  28. Ok I was a little ticked off with an issue surrounding my ring choice but I received my tracking and see that CS was able to revise my choice to the rose gold option. So happy! I hope my box gets here before I leave for vacation next week- I am dying for that chic gorgeous bag!!!! Pretty much worth the cost of the box for me, since I just spent $300 on two fossil bags (my fav, don’t judge😜😜)
    The only thing I’m iffy about is the catch all but I do feel like it matches with the jewelry holder from FFF so I’m going to store that away for xmas gifts 🙂

  29. I don’t know if it’s possible for me to love a box more than I loved the summer BOS, but I love this a lot.

  30. I absolutely love this box!! I cancelled after summer because I wasn’t super impressed anymore but the navy bag and rings lured me back in, lol. Just ordered it yesterday with the $15 off, can’t wait to get it! I will use everything for sure.

    • I tried so hard not to get this box but after these spoilers I cannot resist! Danger I have no will power!

  31. HOME. RUN. What a fantastic box. THIS is why I sub to BOS. True luxury items, outstanding quality and up-to-the-minute styles. Can’t wait to receive my box.

  32. I haven’t bought a box in a while (until this one) because there’s usually a bunch of stuff I don’t use or want. I like a lot of this box, but there are a few items I’m not that interested in. Is there a thread on the forum for giveaways or donations? I’d like someone to enjoy the items, especially if they can’t afford to treat themselves at this time.

    • That’s very sweet of you 🙂 it’d be cool if there was a way to give things to someone Houston

      • I am in Houston too. I live just North of the city and roads continue to be flooded. It is a MESS. I wish I could afford this. I just saw the advertisement for this on Extra. I had never heard of it before. I think I will have to pass on it due to the high cost. I will check back to see if it gets discounted but I still think it will cost too much for my budget.

        Thanks everyone for the reviews.

    • I think you could probably start a pay it forward thread

      • There are a lot of small coastal towns that lost everything (Port Aransas, Rockport, and many more), not just Houston. I live in Corpus Christi and was fortunate to have minimal damage.

      • That sounds good — may do that!

  33. This box is glorious. Worth every penny. I seriously cannot wait for this to arrive. That bag is stunning.

  34. Dying to get this box but I seriously will be living on the street if I don’t cut out the spending! Let’s hope they offer a little more of a discount and I’ll find a way to justify!

    • Me too and me too!!

  35. How long is the bag’s strap at its longest? I’m, uh, large and the straps of most cross-bodies are too short on me so it looks awkward.

    • I saw an image of it as a shoulder bag, it doesn’t have to be a cross body if that doesn’t suit you.

      • Alas, I also have slopey shoulders, so I just don’t use shoulder bags. And I have more clutches than I can use, so I’d need to use it as a cross-body.

      • Tamara, if you love the bag, and the strap length is the only issue, maybe you could get some strap extenders. I know it’s not ideal, but at least it could still possibly work for you.

    • I just packed mine up again after checking it for someone else. I didn’t measure strap drop, however, I am 5’7″ and a size 16/18. I’m curvy so I don’t like them short or high on my waist. At it’s shortest setting, this is a very comfortable crossbody. It sits an inch of so above my waist and is very roomy going on land off.


      • BELOW….NOT BLOW.
        I quit.

      • I read this and spit water everywhere!!

  36. I really want the gold rings but I’d end up swapping the rest of the box (just personal style- the stuff is nice). If the RV wasn’t so high I’d try swapping for the rings. Can’t decide if I should buy the box just for the rings or try to swap for them or just let them go.

    • I love everything but the rings (I just don’t wear jewelry). I was thinking of getting the box. Maybe we could work something out?

    • I am a subscriber, but before I could afford it, I found a lot of her pieces on eBay. I scored the bag from the Spring 2917 box for only $25!!!

      • I’ve also seen stuff on poshmark. I really loved pieces from last fall’s box, and may end up buying them from there.

      • What’s the Spring 2917 box? I like the bag and masks, but I’m on the fence about the other stuff.

      • never mind i figured it out

  37. I want the gold rings so bad!!

    • I just received my box & listed the gold rings for swap. Very pretty; just not my style.

      • I don’t belong to the swap group unfortunately

  38. This particular box isn’t a great fit for me, but–as always–RZ and her team have great taste. Hope everyone who got the box enjoys!

  39. I’m excited for the bag. But the rings kind of remind me of tongue rings. Hopefully after seeing them on I will get over it.

    • Me too!!

  40. Glad I sat this one out and saved $100- would’ve swapped all of it.

    • Agreed; I cancelled because I only made use of 1 or 2 items from every box. Found it’s better to swap for the item(s) I wanted versus buying the entire box and swapping away every item but 1 or 2.

  41. This box will be mine. Oh yes, it will be mine.

    • On a side note: I’m not a current BoS subscriber and this will likely be a one off box for me. I have read some comments from past subscribers detailing how hard it was for them to cancel. Is this true or has anyone had a positive experience? I’m seriously thinking about buying a Visa gift card to pay for the box rather than give them my real credit card number in case it is a hassle to cancel. Is that overboard? Thanks!

      • I got 2 boxes and cancelled without too much hassle. I recommend requesting to cancel via chat on their website. I think most of the problems were how long it took CS to respond to emails and then being beyond the next charge date. They do not refund or replace or anything….

      • You just have to email them saying you want to cancel- there’s no way to cancel from your account.

      • I’ve cancelled a few times and have never had a problem. It’s even better that way because then you use the coupons if you want to sign up again. Just make sure you do it in plenty of time before the next box charges.

      • I’ve never once had an issue. I’ve cancelled here and there, but always end up coming back. I had a cancelation not go through once, and I just emailed them. They refunded me right away even though it says no refunds after you’ve been charged. Based on my experience, I’d feel confident in ordering it as a one off. Just cancel your subscription as soon as you get it. I wish they would give a heads up before they charge, but other than that, they’re great.

      • I have never had a problem with cancelling.

      • I paid for the Summer box and was charged 10 days later for the fall box and still didn’t get my summer box for another 12 days after that! I tried contacting CS because I have a HUGE problem paying full price for a second box before even receiving my first. The reply, when I got one was basically, “You’re s.o.l., sorry”. Anyway, I do like this box but haven’t received it yet. But would’ve wanted it to be my choice whether to re-up or not. So…..yes, the complaints are valid.

      • I wrote an email off of my account, “Customer Service Question/Comment” & the same removed my credit card off of the account, so even if they tried to charge it, there wouldn’t be a way to do so. I did it really close to the deadline, so I thought I better add back up, in case they charged before they saw or processed my request. All worked out perfectly. But, they did in fact try to charge my card… So, I’m really glad I removed it. (either that or I put an expired one on there) 😜
        I don’t think they have a great or easy way to cancel. Most likely on purpose.

        After seeing this box though, I’m pretty sure I’m going to sign back up. I’m such a sucker. Plus, I know the Winter box is always amazing! 0-willpower.

      • If you want to cancel and just get this one box, I would send a request in to cancel as soon as you get shipment notification. Their customer service response time has improved lately, but when I cancelled a year ago, it did take a few weeks to get an answer. The biggest issue is response time, and that there’s no option (like on FFF’s site) to cancel on your own without working with a rep. They weren’t difficult to work with – just not enough of them.

    • LMAO

    • I feel the same way about this box. 🤤 😂
      I got the fall box and had no problem cancelling whatsoever.

  42. Love seeing the purse in action. I think this will be my favorite box from them for the year unless winter beats it. Excited to try Oribe for the first time since I hear so many great things about the brand and I need a catchall for my bedroom.

  43. As I have said before- BEST BOX EVER! I get serious FOMO and have been buying too many boxes lately, and seeing this box makes me think I should just dump the rest and stick with this & PS. Zoe never lets me down. Don’t need the rest.

  44. omg that bag is the most beautiful thing I have ever seen in a sub box. I need that in my life

    (or anyone else who received this purse):

    Is the bag made of embossed leather (ie cow) or is it actually python? I found a bag with the same style of leather on the GiGi website but it was unclear to me if it was made of cow or snake.


    • It’s embossed leather. Hope that helps! 🙂

      • That does! Thanks so much! 🙂

  45. Great box! PSMH LE Fall has some big shoes to fill…

  46. I’m in search of the silver rings. If anyone wants to swap them or do a box split, please let me know. You can get to my swap profile by clicking my name or my email is thoozie (at) gmail (dot) com

  47. I always love the RZ boxes, but I never actually bite on purchasing. If this one ends up being discounted significantly, I might go for it. I do realize it’s worth it, I’m just cheap, lol.

    • Nicole, I’m right there with you! 🙂

      • Me too!

  48. Liz, you look fantastic! Thanks for modeling the items for us.

    I love this box. Everything seems perfect for fall.

    • I agree, Liz makes everything look great !!!

  49. Didn’t they run out of the silver rings? I’d wanted the box but only if I can get silver.

    • They only have normal gold left, at this point. Maybe look out for someone willing to swap?

  50. Another home run from RZ BOS! I was obsessed with the Summer 2017 box, and this one looks amazing, too. I hope they continue including home decor pieces in future boxes. So excited to receive this box!

    • I like luxe home decor things too! I enjoyed the candles in the Winter 2016 box and I am excited to get the tray! I actually want another one.
