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

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
acne-studio-pistol-booties

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

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

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

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

Wantable July 2015 Accessories Collection is here!

Wantable July 2015 Accessories Collection

*July’s collection was sent for review, we include affiliate links for Wantable personalized accessories so we can build credits for future collections*

I love the days I find a Wantable package on my front porch. I never have any doubt that what’s inside will either be items soon to become a staple in my wardrobe, or else ones that go a little outside my comfort zone and challenge me to take a risk. This month, all my items are staples…nothing outrageous, but lots that fit right into my accessories wardrobe, rounding it out nicely and adding versatility.

Wantable July 2015 Accesorries Collection Ellen Scarf

Wantable July 2015 Accessories Collection Ellen Scarf

The Ellen Scarf (retail value $28) is a beautiful light scarf with paisley grey print on an off-white background. I love it because it is so versatile. It works great paired with everything from denim to a summer dress. I brought it with me to the movies because the cinema is always so cold and it was a perfect weight to carry and also give me a little warmth.

Wantable July 2015 Accesories Collection Caroline Bracelet

Wantable July 2015 Accessories Collection Caroline Bracelet

The Caroline Bracelet (retail value $19) is simple yet beautiful. This cuff bracelet is made of brass and has stunning chain link accents. Again, versatile is the word – I wear it with jeans shorts and a white t-shirt or with a summer maxi dress.

Wantable July 2015 Accessories Collection Pamela Necklace

Wantable July 2015 Accessories Collection Pamela Necklace

I can never have enough long necklaces, so I was happy to find the Pamela Necklace (retail value $17). This is a silver necklace with gold bead accents and a double chain. The longer chain ends with a coin pendant.

Wantable July Accessories Collection Earring Trio

Wantable July Accessories Collection Nala Earring Set

The Nala Earring Set (retail value $19) was actually a mistake in my collection! I was supposed to get the Shanny Ring, but got this fabulous earring trio instead. I think I got lucky! I love the little golden feathers and the other two stud earrings are really pretty when worn together.

Lots of staples that add versatility to my wardrobe in this collection! I am once again a happy camper. With a retail value of $83 this month, Wantable continues to be a subscription service well worth the monthly price.

Wantable November 2014 Accessories Subscription Box

Winter is the perfect time to go bold with accessories, and this month’s Wantable Accessories Subscription Box came with four great pieces to perk up my collection.

2014 Wantable November Accessories Subscription Box

The Wantable Accessories Subscription Box is $36 a month, and I typically receive 4 or 5 different selections in each package they send me every month.  I changed up my preferences a bit to go even bolder; here’s what I selected for this month:

Wantable 2014 November Accessories preferences

Not much I don’t like!  I actually think I will bring scarves back into the mix for next month to round out that collection.  This time, I added to my earring collection with a statement pair and a classic pair.  I also received a gorgeous watch and a beautiful bold, long necklace.

Wantable 2014 November Accessories Mariah Earrings 3

The Mariah Earrings ($17) are truly beautiful in person, I don’t think the pictures do them justice.  They are total glam with black and white stones, gold trim, and rhinestones.  Perfect with a simple black cashmere turtleneck sweater, jeans, and black leather boots.

Wantable 2014 November Accessories Cece Earrings

On the other end of the spectrum are the Cece Earrings ($18).  I am astonished at how substantial these pretty hoops are!  This is a fantastic addition to my classic earrings collection.  They complete and add polish to any outfit.

Wantable 2014 November Accessories Mabel Watch

I am beyond happy with the Mabel Watch ($28).  Isn’t it gorgeous??  The tan leather band perfectly complements the large classic face with gold and rhinestone accents.  And the pave rhinestone trim really makes this watch a stunner.  Love it.

Wantable 2014 November Accessories Sloane Necklace

My fourth item is the Sloane Necklace ($32).  This is a unique, geometric long necklace that is wonderful on its own or paired with a simple scarf.  The metallic fringe and gold shield pendant hang from a gunmetal chain, and these mixed metals are right on trend.

Total overall value of my Wantable November Accessories Box is $95.  Pretty terrific for a $36 box, and since I love every item it’s definitely worth it.  At this time of year, another great idea is get a single box for $40 and then gift each piece – if you can part with anything!  Each item comes in a pretty black velvet bag.  Just pop it into a gift bag and the holiday shopping is done without even leaving your house.  Brilliant! – Lisa

Wantable October Accessories Subscription Box

2014 Wantable October Accessories 9
This month’s Wantable Accessories Subscription Box has some wonderfully bold selections!  Not only are there great pieces with mixed metals and natural stones, there’s also an item that I am proud to wear because it supports childhood cancer research.

Headbands of Hope Everest Headband

Wearing my Headbands of Hope headband

Headbands of Hope Everest Headband (retail value $14.85):  This is a very cool fabric stretchy headband that can be worn so many ways.  It works as a classic headband or as more of a headcover.  The best thing about it?  For every headband purchased, one is given to a girl with cancer and $1 is donated to childhood cancer research.

Ayla Earrings

Ayla Earrings

Ayla Earrings

Ayla Earring (retail value $17):  aren’t these awesome?  No one can really tell they are rock goddess skulls unless up close.  These are perfect with a classic, sedate outfit for a subtle rebel touch.

Nicolette Necklace

Nicolette Necklace

Nicolette Necklace (retail value $24):  This is a long double-chained statement necklace with distressed metal, amber stones, and a fringe of chains.  I wear this with a dark solid colored top and play up with the necklace shades in my makeup.

Cate & Chloe Savannah Bar Earrings

Cate & Chloe Savannah Bar Earrings

Savannah Bar Earrings

Savannah Bar Earrings

Cate & Chloe Savannah Bar Earrings (retail value $54):  Yes.  These earrings alone are worth almost $15 more than the price of the box.  I have long dark hair, so these silver bar earrings are exactly what I need.  They show up when my hair is down, and are so elegant with an updo.  Gorgeous.

All together, my box has a retail value of $109.85.  I swear, every month is better and better.  I can’t wait to see what next month brings!  – Lisa

Wantable September Accessories Box

The latest Wantable Accessories Box is ready for fall: crisp weather, sweaters, and layering!  The new collection features classic pieces with an edge, lots of metallics and geometric shapes, and multi-toned pieces, all with a feminine flair.

My loves, likes, and dislikes

My loves, likes, and dislikes

I thought it was very interesting that the selections Wantable sent me this month include three pairs of earrings, even though earrings are in my ‘like’ section.    But you know, I have bracelets, watches, and rings all in the ‘dislike’ section, so I guess I have limited categories from which the stylists can pull.  I am going to do some major surgery on my preference list for next month.  Regardless, every piece in my September box is a winner and I am extremely happy with my selections.

Carly Headband

Carly Headband

The Carly Headband (retails for $14) is two beaded strands of alternating pearls and beads on an elastic band.  The band is very comfortable, and the silver beads and pearls show up nicely on my brown hair.  Often I find elastic headbands sort of collapse on me and slide off, but this one stays in place and doesn’t hurt my head.  Color me happy!

Gracie Earrings

Gracie Earrings

The Gracie Earrings (retails for $15) have a dangling trio of shimmery silver hoops.  These are so much prettier in person, photos just don’t do them justice.  They are very delicate but attention-grabbing at the same time.

Faye Earrings

Faye Earrings

Faye Earring up close

The Faye Earrings (retails for $22) are small but thick silver hoops with sparkling rhinestones.  These are very expensive looking, the rhinestones are quite convincing!  This is a perfect pair of classic hoops that will go with anything – definite anchor earrings to strengthen a jewelry assortment.

Box for the June Stud Earrings

June Stud Earrings (retails for $41) are truly beautiful studs from Cate & Chloe.  Even the box is to die for!  I am seeing versions of these knotted mesh studs everywhere, and this silver pair is elegant and intriguing.  They are a little heavy for my second piercing, but Lobe Wonder (a miracle product that takes the pressure off ear lobes so heavier earrings hang perfectly) takes care of that.  I love these paired with the Faye Earrings, or with the Gracie Earrings for contrast.

Wearing the Carly Headband, June Stud Earrings, and Gracie Earrings

Even though I didn’t have a wide assortment of type of jewelry, the pieces I received are top-notch and in styles I love.  Plus, Wantable is still an amazing value – this $36 subscription box has a retail value of $92.  If you haven’t signed up yet, now is the time for Wantable to pump up your fall accessory wardrobe.  – Lisa
