Southern Mom Loves: Box of Style Winter 2018 Select Edition Unboxing + a Discount Code!

Box of Style Winter 2018 Select Edition Unboxing + a Discount Code!

Wednesday, January 9, 2019

I was provided with a box to help facilitate this post; All opinions are my own. This post contains affiliate links. 

Hey, guys! I'm back with an unboxing of the always fabulous Box of Style by Rachel Zoe! Unfortunately, the Winter Edition sold out before I was able to get my hands on it, so I received the Winter Select Edition instead. It contains some of the items from the Fall 2018 box, so it's a great one to get if you have regrets about not getting that one. Let's unbox it, shall we?

If you haven't seen Box of Style yet, it's a luxury subscription service curated by designer and editor, Rachel Zoe and delivered 4 times a year. Each season, the box contains at least 5 statement staples (fashion, beauty, and lifestyle) to elevate your everyday look.

This season's box has a retail value of $444 for only $99.99 (quarterly subscription) + I've got a discount code for you! It's a great way to score hundreds in luxury swag at a STEEP discount and have a personal stylist on tap to pick out the hottest products of the season for you.

It's the #1 luxury subscription box available and some of the brands in past boxes have been Kate Sommerville, Ettika, Mara Hoffman, Miansai, Topshop, Cluse watches, La Mer, Luv AJ, Tatcha, Sunday Riley, GiGI New York, Oribe, & Kopari, among others, so you're sure to get some drool-worthy products every season.

This Box of Style included a gorgeous tote bag and the actual "box" came shipped inside of the tote, so I'll start there.

This is the Jules Kae Exclusive Vegan Leather Tote (retail value $150). It's a stylish neutral bag in a blush pink that will go with everything, but also elevate your outfit with its polished details like rose gold hardware and whipstitch-detail handles.

It's large enough for a laptop and travel essentials so this could be your new go-to carry-on bag or the perfect bag to run errands around town.

Now to dive into the actual box. The Select Edition includes 5 luxe finds to keep your winter glamorous and cozy and this one has a retail value of $444.

It includes the tote bag and watch from the Winter box, 2 items from the Fall box, and 1 new item.

The first item out is the Ettika Chloe Tassel Necklace Exclusive (retails for $80). This layered, 18K gold-plated, crystal-accented necklace allows you to achieve the look of 4 layered necklaces in 1 simple piece and you can wear it as a choker or as a longer layered piece to switch up your look.

I actually have this necklace from the Fall box, but that's your gain! I'll be giving this away to one of you on my social media, so look out for that soon.

Next out of the box was the 3rd exclusive, The Soho Watch by Eddie Borgo (retail value $115). Now, this was the one item out of the Winter box that I was hoping to get and I feel like I scored big! This watch is fabulous!

This elegant rose-gold watch features an intricate woven metal strap. Wear it alone as a sleek statement piece or layer it with mixed metal bracelets for a fashion-forward effect.

I love adding a pretty watch to an outfit and this one didn't disappoint. <3

Next out of the box was a product from the Fall box that I was more than happy to get again, the Caudalie Vinoperfect Radiance Serum (retails for $79). This has become one of my skincare staples but is a bit on the pricey side so getting the full 30 ml size again is fantastic!

It's ideal for all skin types and proven to even out skin tone to enhance your complexion’s radiance. It works a treat to reduce my dark circles, so bring it on! I really wouldn't be sad if it was in the upcoming Spring box, too. ;)

The last, and newest, addition is the Tarte Sex Kitten Liquid Eyeliner (retail value $20). I'm a big fan of Tarte and liquid liners, so I was happy to see this one, too. (Also, how cute is that kitty top?!)

A sleek cat eye goes with everything, so I think this was a great product to include, especially for those who aren't that adept at liquid liner because the extra-fine felt tip makes for foolproof application. You can swipe or stamp it on.

Wear it alone for classic polish or intensify it with a metallic smoky eye for evening.

So that was Box of Style, Select Edition 2018! I'm a little disappointed I didn't finally get to try a Sunday Riley product (it was in the Winter Edition), but overall, I'm super-happy with the box and I didn't mind getting a few duplicate items. The necklace is so boss that if you have it already from the Fall box, you're sure to have a friend that would love to have it, too.

Also, members get exclusive access to the Box of Style Boutique, expertly curated with the best pieces at special prices including beauty, home and entertaining, jewelry, clothing, and accessories that can be purchased a-la-carte or bundled for even more savings. I know from experience that you can get some amazing deals here, so it's a great added benefit to the box subscription.

As promised, I have discount codes! Use the code VDAYAFF25 for $25 off the Select Edition Box or ANNUAL20 for $20 off an annual $349.99 subscription at this link: to get the discount.

Plus, for the Spring Season (boxes available now!) you're going to automatically receive a FREE Amazon Echo Look with an annual subscription!

As always, once they're sold out, they're gone and you'll have to wait for the Spring box. Until next time! XOXO
