What is it? The Zoe Report Box of Style
How Much? $100/quarter, plus $15 shipping to Canada. Prices in US dollars. Canadian import tax/duty may be an extra charge*. 
What’s in it? Fashion & beauty picks from celebrity stylist Rachel Zoe valued over $350

Box of Style is a luxurious seasonal subscription curated by The Zoe Report Editor-in-Chief, Rachel Zoe, and her team. Each season, get a surprise delivery of stylish fashion and beauty finds valued over $350. Items come from established designers, niche brands, and exclusively-designed collaborations. Each box contains one "Hero Item", which makes up the bulk of the value, plus a selection of fashion, beauty, and lifestyle products.

The fall box was released in early September, but due to some shipping delays, my review box arrived a few days into October.

The packaging is fantastic! The sturdy black box is very fancy. I will be re-using this one! The corners and lid closure are magnetic!

I love the "Hello Gorgeous" text spot varnished on the inside lid of the box.

All the products inside are individually wrapped in tissue paper, which adds to the luxurious feel of this subscription and makes it feel like a special gift. It felt like Christmas morning while I was unwrapping everything.

The little booklet is full of information on the products and styling tips from Rachel Zoe.

Rachel Zoe Tassel Bracelet ($95)
This bracelet is from the Rachel Zoe Collection jewellery line. Rachel says wear it alone as a statement piece or layer it with a stack of your favourite bangles. It's smaller and more delicate than I expected, which is quite nice.

IT Cosmetics Brow Powder Universal Taupe Eyebrow Pencil ($24)
I already have this eyebrow pencil and I love it. My brows are so light I have to fill them in, and this colour is so subtle and natural looking. The pigment can be adjusted just by applying more or less pressure.

The brow brush on the bottom end (did you know it’s called a spooley?) makes this a multi-use product that I cannot live without! 

IT Cosmetics Vitality Lip Blush Hydrating Gloss Stain ($24)
Subscribers received one of three colours of this high shine, nourishing lip gloss. I received Wine Berry Flush, which is a lovely rich burgundy shade.

Here is the brow pencil and lip gloss swatched. I pressed hard to get a good swatch of the brow pencil. Normally when filling in my brows, I use a light touch for just a hint of colour. I love the gloss colour. It will be great for fall and winter.

Hollywood Lint Removing Sheets ($6)
I am a huge fan of the Hollywood line of products. I use Hollywood Fashion Tape regularly (it’s the best way to stop my button up shirts from gaping at the chest), and their deodorant removing sponge is a godsend. These lint removing sheets will be great for travel and on-the-go. These are definitely needed for the cape!

B-Low The Belt Gatsby Whip Belt ($105)
This slim leather belt wraps around the waist and features tasselled ends. The belt is 240cm long (94.5 inches). It’s meant to be wrapped around the waist twice, then tied off at the side.

Here is another look at the belt.

Now for the Hero Item of the season... 

Donni Charm The Colorblock Wonder Cape ($197)
This cape was made exclusively for Box of Style. It's super soft and cozy. The colour block style makes it a classic piece that can be worn several different ways. The info booklet includes four suggestions. I think this cape would be perfect to wear with leggings and a t-shirt on a long flight. I also can’t wait to style this with some of my work outfits and dresses. The office is so cold in the fall and winter!

 
I love the second look!

Here is my quick attempt at styling this beautiful cape.

Worn as a shawl and a wrap. So cozy!

 Cinched with the belt and worn as a scarf. I didn't love these looks.

Donni Charm is named after the founder's father, Donald. Each piece is "touched with a hidden angel wing charm, as a reminder of luck and love". The little charm is adorable.

WOW! The Fall Box of Style by Rachel Zoe included six products, valued at $451 US! This box costs $115 US for Canadians (including shipping*). In Canadian dollars, that works out to about $150 for nearly $600 dollars worth of product! I love that Box of Style includes a fashion item, a fashion accessory, a jewellery item, a styling tool, and full size cosmetic items. The curation is the best I’ve seen from any box in quite some time. Every piece works together, or alone. The cape, belt, and bracelet can be worn together to complete a look, or try each piece separately and expand your wardrobe styling options. Overall, I'm very impressed! The high quality products, along with the deluxe packaging, made for a very luxurious unboxing experience. Fashionistas everywhere need to check out Box of Style!
