For a long time, I've been completely obsessed with the idea of subscription boxes but never have looked into loving one enough to trying them. I knew this would change as more and more started to become available - especially since there's so many now - but this happened sooner than expected when I received my very first Rocksbox Box last week!
First of all, if you're feeling skeptical toward subscription boxes like I was, let me be the first to tell you that they are SO worth it!! I don't know about you, but an exciting mail day is such a good day! ; ) Jewelry is by far my favorite accessory so a subscription box like Rocksbox with designer jewelry in it is like a dream come true!
Rocksbox is different in that you don't actually automatically keep everything you get in the box; you receive three pieces of designer jewelry and essentially you can pick and choose the pieces you want. If you don't want any of the pieces you got, send them back or if you do, you can purchase them at a discounted rate offered by Rocksbox. I absolutely love this idea - it isn't often that you can find designer pieces at any sort of discounted rate but with Rocksbox you can and it's a pretty awesome discount too!
The monthly rate is $19 plus whatever you decide to buy - but Rocksbox was kind enough to give my readers an awesome discount - with code dailydoseofdesignxoxo you'll get your first month absolutely FREE!! So you can try it out and see if you like it and if it's for you - I took advantage of this opportunity at first and it has been so worth it - so I highly suggest doing so too!
When you go to sign up, you'll be prompted to take a style quiz (who knew quizzes could be fun?!) and you'll get a stylist assigned to you to help you pick pieces that match what you like as best as possible. My favorite part about this process was selecting pieces to add to my wishlist - my next favorite part was actually receiving some of the pieces that I really had on my wishlist!
I was so anxious to receive my first box because I really didn't know what to expect and I also was really excited to see what kind of pieces my stylist had found for me. This is what your box will look like when you receive it:
Is this not the cutest box and packaging you've ever seen?! I'm so obsessed - before I even looked to see what pieces I got I was already in love!
And the fact that they personalize it with your name like this is the absolute best feeling! There's something about personalized things... I swear ; )
Here's what I got:
Slate Crystal Chain Bracelet:
I seriously LOVE this bracelet so, so much! This wasn't on my wishlist, but I absolutely love it. I'm considering buying this piece for my mom because I think she loved it even more than me! It's so beautiful and it can be worn every day, with a dressed up outfit or even as a stackable bracelet, you know how much I looove my stackable bracelets!
Moon & Lola Necklace:
This necklace was on my wishlist and as much as I love it, I won't be keeping this piece. It looked MUCH bigger online and I'm always looking for new necklaces but it's super tiny in person and I'm not totally in love, so it'll go back - but it is super dainty and pretty.
Kendra Scott Skylar Earrings:
Oh my GOD, these are possibly my favorite Kendra earrings EVER!! I have a couple pairs from the Danielle line but the shape of these Skylar drops is so beautiful and the opal color is insanely gorgeous in person! No picture could do them justice, but needless to say I will most definitely be keeping these earrings! It isn't often that you find Kendra pieces (that are new anyway) on sale and the fact that I can get them with a discount through Rocksbox is the absolute best.
Overall I've been SO happy with my first Rocksbox! It's one of the subscription boxes (of the many that there are) that I would 150% recommend trying. This is also a great gift idea - with Mother's Day coming up, I'm highly considering getting a subscription for my mom! I think it's a super fun idea and gives you something to be so excited for when the mail comes.
Another awesome perk about Rocksbox is that you have the potential to have FOUR different boxes per month - with free shipping both ways and the return label they send along it's super easy to switch it out weekly. That way you really are getting your moneys worth for the $19 monthly fee! The best part is - you can try this (four times!) for FREE for an entire month with my code (dailydoseofdesignxoxo). You can cancel at any time, and cancel before your next months' boxes ship too.
Have you tried Rocksbox before? What's your favorite piece that I got this month?
