Artisan Chic! Your Bijoux Box August 2017 review #YourBijouxBoxStyle

Your Bijoux Box August 2017

sample/affiliate links

August brings another Your Bijoux Box, this one full of artisan chic pieces that are a perfect way to wind down these beautiful summer months. This month Your Bijoux Box sent me a gorgeous bracelet, a reversible necklace, bright modern earrings, and a surprise fourth item, a lightweight scarf that will transition right into fall. 

The August Collection from Your Bijoux Box is a coordinated set of three jewelry/accessory pieces that complement almost any outfit, dressed up or dressed down. Each monthly box has three items for women (this month there were three items plus one extra item). The boxes are curated by stylists so although these are customized, everyone gets the same jewelry each month, although August has different style options for some pieces and different metal options for the earrings. A monthly subscription is $36 and there are options for a three-month ($103) or six month ($206) subscription. They ship to the US and Canada.

Deepa Gurnani Bracelet

Deepa Gurnani Bracelet: This is a stunning artisan bracelet that is handmade in India. Everyone gets a slightly different style because they are all made by hand. Isn’t it beautiful? I love the detail. The bracelet is hand-embroidered with resin crystals and has a suede backing. This has a lovely, laid back vibe.

Triangular Necklace by House of Harlow: Love this deco-inspired necklace that does double duty – it’s reversible, with one side black leather and the other metal geometric designs. Styles vary, so other boxes have different treats, but I am thrilled with the one I received.

Huaca Pyramids Hoops by House of Harlow

I love how over the months the different pieces really complement one another – I love wearing this particular necklace with the House of Pyramids hoops from last month’s box.

Paloma Earrings

Paloma Earrings: I think the Paloma Earrings are my favorite items in this month’s box. Mine came in silver, although some boxes have the gold option. They are truly gorgeous. Modern, sleek, just beautiful and they show up so well with my long dark hair!

Life of Fashion Scarf

The bonus item this month is the Life of Fashion Scarf, a lightweight scarf that has a lovely mix of colors – taupe, grey, and chocolate. It’s wonderful for slightly chilly summer evenings and is a perfect scarf for transitioning into fall.

The August 2017 Your Bijoux Box is an excellent assortment of artisan chic pieces that are great additions to my accessories collection. Your Bijoux Box is a really fun subscription box and they have some great anniversary specials this month, so it’s a perfect time to sign up if you haven’t already!   – Lisa

April 2017 Your Bijoux Box #YourBijouxBoxStyle

We are already more than halfway through April – time is flying – and the best part about it are the subscription boxes that I find on my porch each month!! April has already been excellent thanks to the latest Your Bijoux Box.  It truly is an outstanding collection this month.        sample, affiliate links

Your Bijoux Box April 2017

Your Bijoux Box April 2017

The April Collection from Your Bijoux Box is a coordinated set of three pieces that complement almost any outfit, dressed up or dressed down. Each monthly box has three jewelry items for women (this month there were three jewelry items plus two extra items). The boxes are curated by stylists so although these are customized, everyone gets the same jewelry each month, although April was special – there were multiple styles of necklaces available, so each box had a real surprise. It’s been really cool to check out which style of necklace everyone else got, although I am totally happy with the necklace I received.  A monthly subscription is $36 and there are options for a three-month ($103) or six month ($206) subscription. They ship to the US and Canada.

The April Collection featured Karen Kane pieces which made me dance a happy spring dance since I adore this line. All the pieces coordinate so well I found myself wearing every single piece on the same day…I think that’s the first time that’s happened for me with a subscription box collection.

  1.  Karen Kane Gold Hoops ($31):  apparently the styles vary a bit on these earrings, with some styles thicker and a bit smaller. I couldn’t be happier with the ones I got. The shape is interesting – just a bit oblong, and even though they aren’t a closed hoop I had no problem with my hair getting caught in them. I have nothing like these classically beautiful gold hoops so they were the beginning of my major happy dance.

2. Goldenrod Statement Bracelet: this pretty chunky bracelet features greenish/gold crystals and an adjustable size. I love the toggle and hoop closure which is so much easier to navigate than a clasp. Sometimes I wear it loose, sometimes I go for the snug fit, but however I wear it I know it looks stunning. This is a great bracelet.

3.  Karen Kane Pink Reversible Pendant Necklace (up to $120):  I’ve seen lots of gorgeous versions on other blogs who review Your Bijoux Box, but I think I like my style of necklace best!!  My Karen Kane Necklace is a multi-tasker, with one side a rectangle of tiny crystals that are incredibly brilliant, and the other side a soft and feminine peachy peach rimmed with gold. Take a look at some of the other blogs and their reviews, like My Subscription Addiction, Subscription Box Ramblings, and Hello Subscription so you can see a few other necklace styles.  (I definitely got the best one, although they are all super pretty!!).

4.  April Flowers Hair Pins:  These two feminine and gorgeous hair pins were the extras in this month’s box. I am loving hair jewelry for spring and I actually think these two little surprises just might be my favorite items in the April Your Bijoux Box. They are so cute together on one side, but sometimes I use one for each side to mix it up a little.

The April Collection Your Bijoux Box is a beautiful way to start off your own spring happy dance.

March 2017 Your Bijoux Box #YourBijouxBoxStyle

Your Bijoux BoxThere are some moments that are just exquisite. The feeling of brand new socks. That first hot, salty McDonald’s french fry. A perfect place to park suddenly becoming yours. Coming home after a trying day to find a subscription box on your porch. I recently had all four experiences in one day which culminated in finding my March 2017 Your Bijoux Box calmly awaiting outside my door!                  sample, affiliate links

March Collection Your Bijoux BoxThe March Collection from Your Bijoux Box is a coordinated set of three pieces that complement almost any outfit, dressed up or dressed down. Each monthly box has three jewelry items for women (although this month there were three jewelry items plus one extra item). The boxes are curated by stylists so although these are customized everyone gets the same jewelry each month. A monthly subscription is $36 and there are options for a three-month ($103) or six month ($206) subscription. They ship to the US and Canada.

The March Collection was a celebration of St. Patrick’s Day, with an emphasis on spring green good-luck jewelry that makes you feel like a million bucks. This month they had a delay due to some supplier issues, but I really appreciated the communication and continued updates regarding shipping.  I still got my box in time for celebrating the holiday with my beautiful new items!Your Bijoux Box Tessellation CuffYour Bijoux Box Tessellation CuffYour Bijoux Box Tessellation Cuff

1.  Tessellation Cuff ($78) – this is a gorgeous art deco piece from the House of Harlow 1960. It’s a fascinating cuff – I keep looking at it and finding more details. If you have nice arms, this is a great way to draw attention to them. Depending on your arm, you can wear this on the upper arm or at the wrist. It is a bit adjustable. I have really skinny arms so I like this on my upper arm, but my daughter prefers it as a bracelet. It’s gorgeous, and well worth the price of the box alone.Sama Cuff

Some people received the Sama Cuff instead. It looks beautiful, but I think I like the Tessellation Cuff even more.

It lays nicely and doesn’t tangle up. I love pairing this with a plain white t-shirt and skinny jeans.  Your Bijoux Box Emerald EarringsYour Bijoux Box Emerald Earrings

3.  Emerald Earrings:  These match the Emerald Layered Necklace. They are surprisingly light and don’t pull on the earlobes. I am a huge art deco fan so this month’s collection of jewelry is just perfect. I love the vintage glamour.

Your Bijoux Box Life of Fashion Scarf

4.  Life of Fashion Scarf:  My daughter Marina is modeling the fashion items for this month. The Life of Fashion Scarf is an infinity scarf with a graduated cream and green print. I don’t have a lot of green in my wardrobe so this is definitely a welcome addition. The scarf is soft and so pretty…and it was perfect for St. Patrick’s Day. I wasn’t pinched once because I had my green!

The March Collection Your Bijoux Box was a fabulous celebration of spring and St. Patrick’s Day with pieces I can wear all year long. Have you signed up for Your Bijoux Box yet? It’s a great time to do it…just think of that exquisite moment when you find the box of sparkly surprises on your porch!  – Lisa

Ringing in the new year with my January 2017 Your Bijoux Box #YourBijouxBoxStyle

Your Bijoux Box January 2017I like surprises. Well, not HUGE surprises…like when the doctor told me I was having a girl but he turned to be a boy. That’s a bit much in the surprise category. But I love knowing that a box of baubles, Your Bijoux Box, is on the way to me every month and I love the surprise that comes with it…I never know what is going to be inside but I always know it’s going to be pretty and fun!                                                                         sample, affiliate links

  2. Petra Pearl Collar:  This is an elegant collar necklace with faux pearls. It looks grown up but it’s very fun to match with dressed down clothes like a white t-shirt and a black moto jacket.House of Harlow BraceletHouse of Harlow BraceletHouse of Harlow BraceletHouse of Harlow Bracelet
  3. House of Harlow Bracelet:  This beauty retails for $58. I am head over heels for this Nicole Richie art deco bracelet with a boho vibe. It goes with everything and gets a lot of attention, even though it isn’t an ‘in your face’ piece. It’s lovely.

There are two cute extras in this month’s box – an Anne Taintor Lip Balm and Purse Sized Emory Boards. Anne Taintor is an artist and she is known for pairing mid-century imagery with modern slogans. Both of these immediately went into my purse and have already saved me from a few lip and nail emergencies.

I seem to love every month of Your Bijoux Box more and more! I highly recommend this wonderful monthly surprise of sparkle.   – Lisa

Glimmering baubles in Your Bijoux Box December Collection!


Your Bijoux Box The December CollectionSometimes everything just works out. A week ago, I found out at the very last moment that my husband and I were invited to a black tie affair. I rarely go to anything black tie, but I had a dress ready thanks to a recent Stitch Fix order – this Maggy Sophia White Floral London Fit and Flare Dress:maggie-london-sophia-white-floral-fit-and-flare-dress
I winterized it with a darling Alice Blue black jacket, also from StitchFix. I just needed the right jewelry.  Lo and behold, my December Collection of the Your Bijoux Box arrived!! Everything inside was exactly what I needed to perfectly accessorize my party dress.                          sample, affiliate links

Your Bijoux Box The December CollectionThe December Collection from Your Bijoux Box is a coordinated set of four pieces that complement almost any outfit, dressy or dressed down. Each monthly box has three jewelry items for women (although this month there were three jewelry items and a pretty scarf!). The boxes are curated by stylists so although these are customized everyone gets the same jewelry each month. A monthly subscription is $36, and there are options for a three-month ($103) or six month ($206) subscription. They ship to the US and Canada.

Here’s what is in December’s box of bling:

Your Bijoux Box The December Collection David & Young Scarf

David & Young Scarf ($30) – I love love love this scarf. The geometric pattern is beautiful, the colors go with everything from a winter coat to a slinky dress and it is super soft and cozy. Awesome.

Your Bijoux Box The December Collection Holiday Bracelet by Deepa GurnaniYour Bijoux Box The December Collection Holiday Bracelet by Deepa GurnaniYour Bijoux Box The December Collection Holiday Bracelet by Deepa Gurnani

Deepa Gurnani Beaded Bracelet ($50) – This is a very cool, retro, sort of steam punk/art deco piece that has lots of sparkle and tons of personality. It is handmade by artisans and imagined by former couture beading designer Deepa Gurnani.

Your Bijoux Box The December Collection Juliette DropsYour Bijoux Box The December Collection Juliette Drops

Juliette Drops ($26) – Wow these are stunning. These crystal drop earrings add fun and bling to a maxi dress and will be fantastic to pair with a silky sundress this summer. Total romance.

Your Bijoux Box The December Collection Juliette CollarYour Bijoux Box The December Collection Juliette Collar

Juliette Collar ($38) – My exact words when I pulled this shimmering beauty out of the box: shut the front door!! Freaking fabulous. It was just perfect for my black tie event, but it also looks incredible with a simple white t-shirt (like the Citizens of Humanity Premium Vintage Esmay T-Shirt), skinny jeans (like the Rag + Bone Frayed Skinny Jeans), and black Acne Studio Pistol booties. citizens-of-humanity-vintage-esmay-t-shirtrag-and-bone-frayed-skinny-jeans

Quite honestly, I would have been thrilled if Juliette Collar had been the only piece in the box!

Your Bijoux Box The December CollectionAdd it all up – these four beautiful pieces are worth $154, a fantastic value for a $36 box. You can buy each item separately at Your Bijoux Box if you want…or you can get a single box without the automatically renewing feature. I am loving Your Bijoux Box more and more every month and I hope you decide to get your sparkle delivered too!!  – Lisa

My first Your Bijoux Box – October jewelry fun!

Your Bijoux BoxIt’s been way too long since I’ve happily discovered a subscription box on my porch, and I forgot how much fun they are!  I recently received the Your Bijoux Box for review, and it is a pretty neat little box of sparkly stuff – this month the box had jewelry AND cosmetics.

One of the best parts of a subscription box is opening it up.  This box is on the smaller side, but I definitely did a little dance of joy when I saw all the pretty bags inside.

Each monthly box has three jewelry items for women.  The boxes are curated by stylists, although these are customized – everyone gets the same jewelry each month.  A monthly subscription is $36, and there are options for a three month ($103) or six month ($206) subscription.  They ship to the US and Canada.

The October Your Bijoux Box has three jewelry items PLUS an eyeshadow palette – extra fun!  But first, the jewelry:

Ombre Tortoise Pendant

Ombre Tortoise Pendant

The Ombre Tortoise Pendant is right on trend.  I am seeing these long necklaces with square pendants everywhere.  This one has color crystals in beautiful fall amber, gold, and orange.  This is exactly what you need to pull together an outfit with a crew or boat neck sweater.

Tortoise Layered Bracelet

The Tortoise Layered Bracelet goes perfectly with the other items.  It’s a combination of chunky gold and tortoise-shell, and I love the easy adjustable fit.

Ella Amber Earrings

The Ella Amber Earrings are sooo pretty.  The amber is sparkly enough to stand out with my dark hair, but these babies are still casual enough for every day.

Spice Me Up Eye Palette by City Color

Spice Me Up Eye Palette by City Color

Since this is my first Your Bijoux Box, I didn’t realize that every month there is a bonus item in addition to the 3 jewelry items.  The bonus in the October box is a Spice Me Up Eye Palette by City Color ($9).  The fall colors are beautiful!  All of these shades are metallics so they all have some sparkle.  The pigmentation is ok, but with a primer or some mixing medium they last a long time and the colors really pop.  It’s a fun palette to play around with.

 

Overall, everything matches – even the eyeshadow palette – but it isn’t too ‘matchy matchy’, you know what I mean?

Good news:  Your Bijoux Box has coupons!  Sparkles10 gives 10% off any order, so your best value for this one would be the 3, 6, or 12 month subscription.  Or, use the coupon WELCOME for an extra piece of jewelry!  Only 1 coupon per order.  They also host a monthly style contest. #YourBijouxBoxStyle a photo wearing or displaying the jewelry to win an overflowing box of sparkles! Share it on Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, or the Your Bijoux Box Blog.

And if you want a single box without the automatically renewing feature, they offer gift options. And don’t you think you deserve a little gift?  I do!!  – Lisa

Function and fashion of olympic proportions: Maria Shireen bittersweet Bracelet

Raised handsOK, I want to see hands — how many of you wear an elastic hair tie as a bracelet, just in case you find yourself wanting to get that hair off your shoulders and out of your eyes? My hand is definitely up.  Now, however, it’s up so I can show you my gorgeous golden bracelet that also houses my hair tie!

Maria Shireen bracelet red white blueThe bracelet accessories line Maria Shireen sent me this very chic and modern bracelet from the bittersweet collection ($45).  It is incredibly fashionable, wonderfully functional, and is perfect for working out or going out.

Maria Shireen bracelet

Maria Shireen braceletsMaria Shireen has two different collections, bittersweet and Luxury.  The bittersweet signature bracelets are made of stainless steel and come in three different finishes: silver, gold, or rose gold. The line has five different metal designs, plus two BPA-free fun-looking plastic designs for those younger fashionistas. The Luxury Collection has two sterling silver styles in three color varieties, including silver, gold, rose gold.

IMG_1225IMG_1227
Each Maria Shireen bracelet is more than a statement piece – it’s very practical as it can be worn with its elastic hair tie. It takes you right from time-challenged soccer mom to chic and stylish mom. I absolutely love how you can mix and match with whatever color hair tie you happen to have.

IMG_1229IMG_1238The founder, Shireen, used to wear her hair ties around her wrist (like most of us do). Her hubby noticed that the hair ties left a dents on her arm, so he designed a bracelet that looked great and held her hair ties without cutting off her circulation. The rest is history!

With my hair tie...

With my hair tie…

...and without!

…and without!

This bracelet is a fantastic piece of jewelry that I wear all the time. And if you need a great excuse for splurging on a little something for yourself, take a look at the gorgeous USA 2016 Medals Set ($110)!

I hope you will head on over to the Maria Shireen website at mariashireen.com and go for the gold…or the silver…or the rose gold!! – Lisa
