Rocksbox Review: December 2016

Happy New Year Loves! Hopefully everyone had a great NYE weekend. It’s the beginning of the month…You know what that means? It’s time for a Rocksbox review! With this set, I was sent two items on my wish list and one that was randomly chosen. My stylist for this set was Jessica, and she hooked me up!

But before I get into all the glamorous details…

Check out my first Rocksbox review!

Let us continue…

 

Rocksbox Stylist Memo

Being the December baby that I am…I was hoping that I would just love this set so that three things could happen…

1 | I could wear them for my birthday festivities

2 | Keep them as a wonderful gift to myself

3 | Give you guys an AWESOME review!

Needless to say all of these things happened! I will be keeping two of the three items. Why not all three? I’ll let you know in just a bit…Keep reading.


Compare & Contrast

When looking at the pictures, I noticed something that isn’t shown clearly. This is not a bad thing for me, but it could be for someone else. The necklace is a vintage gold color, while the ring and earrings are a bright yellow gold. They compliment each other, but they are not the exact same shade.


BONUS: I HAVE A GIFT FOR YOU SO KEEP READING! IF YOU FOLLOW ME ON INSTAGRAM & TWITTER… YOU ALREADY KNOW WHAT I’M TALKING ABOUT.

When I opened the box, the first piece I pulled out was my Olivia & Grace Hexagon Pave RingFrom the photo on the site, you can not tell the size of the actual ring. It could be a huge cocktail ring, or it could be a dainty little ring. The ring is medium in size, and the pave detailing around the stone make this piece look so elegant. I would feel comfortable wearing this ring whether I am dressed up or down.

Diasehs Olivia & Grace Ring

The color of this ring is in Moonstone, but it also comes in another color that can be seen here!

The retail price for this ring is $115 USD

The Rocksbox Shine Insiders’ price is $81 USD


The last time I received a Perry Street necklace was in my first Rocksbox set, and I immediately fell in love with the brand. They have yet to disappoint me. The Perry Street piece I received in this set is the Faye Statement Necklace . This necklace is tastefully crafted, and not too bulky. I like that! With the colors that were used, the piece needed some simplicity in the style. As my stylist Jessica mentioned above…The color combination is beautiful. However, it’s the topaz that brings everything together. That’s what sold me on this piece.

The retail price for this necklace is $59 USD

The Rocksbox Shine Insiders’ price is $50 USD

I’m keeping this necklace! It’s mine…no questions asked. They have more of them I promise.


The last piece in my set is by Anita K. The Sweet Little Something Stud Set is a tiny treasure. Why do I say this? They are perfect for a few different things…

1 | If you don’t want to wear large stone or statement earrings

2 | If you have a second or third ear piercing and need some complimentary studs

3 | If you have on a large statement necklace and need some simple earrings

 Anita K Earrings

But…but…but…I will not be buying them. Why you ask? It’s not because I don’t like them…I lose studs like the average girl looses bobby pins! I know deep within my spirit that if I kept these earrings that I would only be able to locate one set of the three in about a month.

The retail price for this set is $63 USD

The Rocksbox Shine Insiders’ price is $53 USD

Resort 2017

What is a

This year, from May 30th to June 10th, designers are presenting beautiful pieces that fall into the category of “Resort Collections”. These collections have also been called “Pre-Collections” or “Cruise Collections”, and the shows are held in New York every year.

 The addition of these collections started when designers started making pieces for their clients who would jet-set or cruise in the warmer months. The presentation of these collections benefits designers by helping them see what grabs the attention of buyers. When designers create pieces for the upcoming season, you may see aspects of their previous Resort Collection in the new designs.


CompareandContrast

We are going to compare Rachel Zoe’s Resort 2015 Collection (top) with her Spring 2015 Ready-to-Wear Collection (bottom).

Rachel Zoe Resort 2015 DressRachel Zoe Resort 2015 JS Rachel_Zoe_007_1366 Spring 2015 DressRachel Zoe Spring JS

These styles are very similar, and all four outfits include tricolor tweed with fringe detailing. With just a few changes and additions in the tailoring, she created different looks that are both chic and wearable!


03-josie-natori-resort-17

This tunic dress is by designer Josie Natori. The colorful brush stroke pattern is definitely one of my favorite aspects. With the fabric being semi-sheer, it’s breathable, and can take you from day to night with ease! The accessories paired add an edgy contrast. This year, Josie Natori is celebrating her 40th year in business, and with that many years in the industry, she definitely knows a thing or two about style!

05-rachel-zoe-resort-17

I am in love with this floral dress designed by Rachel Zoe! The fabric loops together in the front to create a soft empire waist, and this creates a flattering shape that is ultra feminine. This is a design trend that Rachel Zoe is known for. The mint in the floral detailing and the chiffon fabric soften up the darkness in the dress to create the perfect look.

Bonus: This dress is perfect for all shapes and sizes. The bust area is spacious enough for a larger chest, and is not super low cut. If you have a smaller chest, the rope detail will play up that area! If are trying to conceal your midsection, the waist starts a bit high (flowly material is your friend). If you are a bit more narrow, the empire waist creates shape for that extra curve you are looking for!

09-rachel-zoe-resort-17

This tan, cable knit sweater dress is also by Rachel Zoe! You can definitely put this piece in the Boho catergory. It is slightly see through, and with the fringe detailing at the bottom, this makes for a sexy, yet comfy piece that would make a great addition to anyone’s closet. Pieces like this are the golden ticket for those of you who at least once a week scream…

“I don’t know what to wear!” or “I’m going to be late!”

You can just grab this one and go.

Bonus: The nude coloring, vertical cable knit design and fringe paired together will elongate the body for a very slimming, yet lengthening effect. Who would pass up a dress that makes your legs look amazing? Fringe with benefits!

14-sally-lapointe-resort-17

While the designer, Sally LaPointe, may not be so colorful (She normally wears all black)…This sleeveless, knit turtleneck definitely makes a bright and bold statement. This citron green was the pop of color in her Resort 2017 collection. In addition to this burst of color, the high neckline really caught my attention. Also, let’s not forget to mention the deep side cut outs that give a little sultry exposure.

Bonus: A piece like this can easily be pushed into the many different categories. Switch it up! Dress it up with heels and a statement clutch or down with distressed skinny jeans and oversized glasses. Are you up for the challenge? If styled correctly, this piece could definitely get you featured in the Street Style section of Vogue.com.

protagonist-resort-17-23

This technical day trench by Protagonist is a versatile must have! The sunburst orange color can take you from season to season. The interesting thing about this coat is that is has no buttons, and that can benefit many body types. Women with a larger bust do not have to worry about buttons struggling to stay together, and women with a slimmer frame gain curve due to the belted waist (Sneak Peak). For those who are trying to shy away from their curves, this coat draws attention toward the face with the oversized notch lapels and tailored cuts.

44-jonathan-simkhai-resort-17

Jonathan Simkhai has really outdone himself with his jumpsuit, and while this is one of many lace pieces in his collection, it is most definitely my favorite. The detailing in the top portion was inspired by the glass ceilings of the Grand Palais in Paris, France and the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II in Milano, Italy. This jumpsuit definitely falls into the evening wear category, and would make an amazing wedding reception outfit.The flared pant hugs the hips to add shape, and with a train this long, it elongates the leg. You will not need a lot of jewelry (if any at all) with this outfit due to the intricate designs.

Bonus: Simkhai was one of the three recipients of the 2015 CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund. He was awarded $300,000 to invest in his label! This award comes with an additional yearlong mentorship with an industry veteran to help the recipients with their businesses. Talk about #Winning!

Rocksbox Review: April 2016

Instagram | Facebook | Twitter

It’s the 1st of May, and that means I’ve gotten a good feel for my recent Rocksbox set… I can’t just open the box, and give a review. What kind of person do you think I am? Now if you searched for “Rocksbox Reviews” then you know what you’re looking for. If you stumbled upon this via Google, my Instagram, Facebook or Twitter, you might be asking yourself…

What is a Rocksbox

Let me see if I can make this short and sweet…

Rocksbox is a jewelry service that presents its members with a subscription box every month for a flat rate. The pieces are all designer brands, and come in an array of styles. If  this is your first time hearing about this company or want even more details…

Check out my first Rocksbox review!

Let us continue…


Lauri Stickynote

Now I am going to tell you right now….I have not and will not wear this necklace and these earrings together.


I’m just not, and this is due to the fact that the necklace is BRIGHT gold and the earrings are a ANTIQUE brass. The second reason is …I am not a fan of huge earrings and a long/huge necklace at the same time. I need some kind of balance. If you like that type of thing…by all means…Be my guest. The ring I will wear with the necklace or by itself!


compare and contrast

 We all know that the things we want to get online do not always look the same in person. These pieces however are GORGEOUS! The pictures from the site do not do them justice whatsoever.


BONUS: I have a gift for a few of you, so keep reading! If you follow me on Instagram & Twitter… You already know what I’m talking about.

The Kendra Scott Rayne necklace took me by surprise. I don’t know why, but I did not expect the piece on this necklace to be as big as it is. I love it! I am such a flower child at heart, and this type of necklace is right up my alley.

The color of this necklace is in Slate, but it also comes in 35 other color variations that can be seen here!

The retail price for this necklace is $80 USD

The Rocksbox Shine Insiders’ price is $64 USD


These Loren Hope Abba earrings in the color Deep Sea make my heart sing! I will admit that they caught me off guard at first. I was afraid that they might be heavy. You know you thought it too! They are actually very light weight, and the perfect size. I put them on  my wishlist because I wanted to try something out of my comfort zone. This teal color is one of my favorites, so I couldn’t pass them up.

The retail price for this pair of earrings is $78 USD

The Rocksbox Shine Insiders’ price is $66 USD


Minimalist jewelry is definitely trending right now. Sophie Harper is know for presenting very delicate pieces, and this dainty little ring is the perfect accessory. You can wear this ring for a dressy occasion or a casual girl’s day. I fell in love with this collection when I received my first Rocksbox, and I think this will definitely be my go-to brand for simple pieces.

The retail price for this little treasure is $33 USD

The Rocksbox Shine Insiders’ price is $66 USD


Fact: If it hasn’t crossed your mind already, let me enlighten you. All Rocksbox jewelry is sanitized before being sent out. I carefully examined all of these pieces, and they are pristine! I am a complete germaphobe, so I did my research.


I know you want to see what the hype is all about.

Rocksbox Review: November 2015

I have never been one of those people to crazily stalk my mailman on the day that my package is to arrive, but this week I did that. Now don’t give me that look…I know that I have to be patient, but these beautiful pieces are something to really be excited about! I mean what fashion-loving girl doesn’t want designer jewelry? My point exactly.


I’m sure if you have never heard of this company… you are thinking to yourself, “What is a Rocksbox?”

See I knew you were thinking that. Let me explain! Rocksbox is a company that specializes in designer jewelry. They are like a magic genie, but better! You get three pieces of jewelry in every set. Each set is based on your personal style and a wish list that you create.

It gets better! You can return your set at any time to get a new one. That means if you want to keep your pieces for a week, send them back, and then get more… You can do that!


At this point I’m pretty sure you’re thinking that this is going to cost you an arm and a leg. WRONG! The fee is $19 a month, and you do not have to pay shipping either way.

What happens if you get a piece that you really love & want to keep? Each month they give you a $10 credit towards a purchase.

Just buy it!


 

BONUS: I have a holiday gift for you, so keep reading! If you follow me on Instagram & Twitter… You already know what I’m talking about.

Enough with the breakdown. Let’s have a look at what’s in this box!

The Pave X Ring in Gold by Sophie Harper (Retail: $48 Insider: $38)

This ring is very comfortable to wear, and it catches the light just right. I am very picky about ringsso I am surprised at how I immediately fell in love with this piece. For those of you that aren’t the biggest fan of gold jewelry, this piece does come in silver!

The Astrid Necklace by Perry Street (Retail: $60 Insider: $48)

Ok you guys, I have a confession…My name is Alexandra, and I am a statement necklace JUNKIE! That’s one thing I love about Rocksbox. They have statement necklaces galore! The aqua in this necklace gives the perfect pop of color.
