It seems like most people had a better experience this year than last year, so I’m glad I bit the bullet! I ordered a Tops Box and a Surprise Me Box, then broke down and ordered the Luxe Box at the last minute, all in 2XS. (I was secretly hoping for that beautiful leather jacket, but alas!)
I got my Luxe Box first:
Mary Dress (Black) – $160 value: LOVE THIS, can’t wait to wear it to work
Isabelle Luxe Twill Sheath Dress (Black) – $150 value: This is a little boxy, but I’ll definitely wear it to events. Very simple and chic.
Kniko Pleated Midi Skirt (Eggplant) – $150 value: This one is a little snug, definitely more on the 6 side than the 8 side… I’ll be selling/swapping this one.
Rodarte x Universal Standard Blouse (White) – $150 value: I thought this would be far more ridiculous than it actually was, but unfortunately, it’s Dry Clean Only, and I just can’t do that to myself. Selling/swapping this one too.
*This box included a note about a bonus item, presumably the Rodarte blouse. A bit shy of the promised $650 value, but both dresses were on my wish list, so I’m thrilled.
Then, I received my Tops/Surprise Me Boxes about 2 days later:
Beas Coat (Black) – $230 value: So pleased. This was on my wish list and slots into my wardrobe perfectly. BEAUTIFUL piece.
Seine High Rise Skinny Jeans 32in (Black), size 6- $90 value: These ones are a big snug, but that’s my fault for being overconfident in my sizing… I may try to sell/swap these so that I can try an 8.
Elbe Shirt (White) – $85 value: Super tent-like on me, but I have a friend who might love it. I’m going to offer it to her, then sell/swap if she doesn’t want it.
Foundation Turtleneck (Black) – $60 value: Great basic, fits well. Definite keep.
Tee Rex (Slate) – $50 value: This is the best t-shirt ever. I’m going to see how it washes, then order them in every color.
Dolci Top (Fig) – $50 value: Not a fan of the cold shoulder look, but the color is beautiful. Selling/swapping.
Maia Stovepipe Sleeve Tee (Navy) – $50 value: I’m always dying for nice navy tops because I made the mistake of incorporating some navy patterns into my work wear. This one fits nicely and has a great shape to it. Score!
*This combo box also included a bonus item, so I ended up with 7 total between the two.
Overall, I’m very happy with this experience, and I was glad to get some broad exposure to the brand. I’ll definitely be back for more pieces from the existing collection (still drooling over that leather jacket…), and I’d definitely take a chance on mystery boxes next year if I’m in the market for some wardrobe expansion.
