RocksBox: A Review

Before I left for Europe, I decided to try my hand a one of the monthly box subscriptions.  It took me awhile to figure out which one I wanted to try but after doing a little bit of research I finally settled on trying out Rock Box.

I think what finally swayed me toward RocksBox was the fact that Kendra Scott was part of the package.  And I've been DYING for a pair of earrings and one of her necklaces for a while now so when I saw that you could pick some of her jewelry in your Wish List I knew this was one to try.  

I've had two boxes since starting my subscription and have been pretty happy with both boxes.  Here is a peak inside.  

***************



I got my first box the week I was leaving for Europe.  I wore the bracelet once but didn't wear either of the other items.  I loved the color of the earrings but found they were a little too heavy for my taste.  I'm used to wearing studs and trying to ease into wearing more dangly ones.  




As for the necklace I loved it.  But since it was such a statement piece I didn't really have an outfit to really show it off the week I had it because I was doing lots of last minute errands and things for our trip.  I packed it with the few of pieces of jewelry I was taking and thought I would wear it with one of my outfits while in Europe.  Sadly I completely forgot I had it in my bag.  So it never got worn.  



I didn't end up keeping anything from this box even though I did like two of the items in it.  

Box number two was pretty much the same.  This time around I got a pair of Kendra Scott earrings and was SO exited.  The only thing about these was the color.  I like the turquoise, but I want something that is a little more neutral, that will go with anything.  




I also really liked both necklaces.  They came together and I assume were meant for layering.  At least that's how I styled them the day I wore them to school last week.  I posted a picture of it on Instagram and on the blog last Friday.  But just in case you missed it, here is is again.


I LOVED the smaller necklace.  I have been looking for a delicate necklace that I can wear all the time and was so excited when I saw this little diamond bar in my box.  I would have kept it, but at the time I had the box I just couldn't justify spending $40 on a simple little necklace at the time. 


I think I'm going to try it for one more month and then will decide whether or not it's really worth the $19 a month.  I will say, the anticipation of getting the next box has been so exciting!  Because it's a complete surprise what your stylist will put in it.  Plus I'm not great at picking out jewelry for myself so this eliminates me having to go out and look for some on my own.  Oh and you can send the box back as soon or as late as you want.  So you can receive as many boxes a month as you want.  Just remember that shipping time is kinda long.

Once I get my next box, I'll let y'all know if I decided to stick with it past the third month!  Hopefully the next one has something I'll want to keep! (Like the neutral Kendra Scott earrings!)

Have a great Thursday! :)

So, once you pay the $19, do you get to keep any of the stuff? Or do you have to pay on top of that?

I've never done a subscription box...I like the idea! I LOVE getting stuff in the mail! I'm not sure I can justify a couple extra hundred $ every year, though... Thoughts?

I love those Kendra Scott earrings but totally agree on a more neutral pair :)

You have gotten some really pretty pieces! The second box looked like it worked perfectly for you! :)

I've really been wanting to try RocksBox, so I might have to give it a try! I'm pretty much obsessed with Kendra, so getting some of her pieces to try out would be fun!
