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.

Full spoilers were released way back in late November. Click here for a refresher. I've been waiting a long time to get my hands on this baby!

This review is quite late because my box only arrived January 11th! The winter mailing encountered quite a few shipping delays. Winter boxes are supposed to ship mid-December, but hundreds of subscribers are just receiving their boxes now. It's not clear what caused the delay, but even my review box, which is separate from subscribers, got caught up in the fray. My box shipped December 30th. It was delievered to the post office January 11th, with a $24.50 COD fee due for taxes and brokerage fees. Other Canadian subscribers that I've chatted with paid around the same.

First look!

The info booklet includes a note from Rachel Zoe.
"Between glamorous parties and cozy nights at home, winter calls for chic yet effortless on-the-go style. This season's ultra-luxe white box is filled with my and my team's favorite finds - everything you will need for winter and beyond. Take your look from desk to dinner and stay refreshed in between! I hope you are as obsessed with it as much as I am!"

Box of Style also launched a referral program. Refer five people and your next delivery is free!

Soia & Kyo Oliva Cable Knit Hat ($50)
This toque was offering in black, vanilla, or merlot and subscribers were able to select their preference. I received all three colours earlier in December as part of a blogger preview (see here). Vanilla is my favourite, followed by black. Both look fantastic with my grey winter coat. This toque can be worn slouchy with the cuff unrolled or as is.

Clinique Lip Color + Primer in Berry Pop ($18)
 Rachel Zoe says a bold lip is the quintessential accessory of the beauty world. This is a great dark berry hued colour, perfect for all skin-tones.

Juicy Couture Viva La Juicy Fragrance - Purse Size
The "Spotlight Product" is a new feature, which includes a sponsored sample product. It's fun to get little extras!

Dagne Dover Exclusive Leather Card Case ($50)
This leather card case was designed exclusively for The Zoe Report. Similar styles on the Dagne Dover website are coated canvas, so this is a real treat for Box of Style subscribers. We also received a 25% off code for Dagne Dover, but you need a US shipping address.

I have an old silk brocade card case that I picked up while in China. It's a little worn out now, so this is the perfect replacement! There are two interior pockets and one exterior.

Dylanlex Zoey Custom Necklace ($200)
This pieces was designed specifically for Box of Style. Typical Dylanlex designs retail for $300 to $1000+. This piece is really pretty piece with good weight to it. The necklace measures 18" long from end to end. It can be worn as a choker, or use the 4 inches of extender chain to wear it "bib style". On the back side of the connectors (the bar that connects the bib to the chain), there is an engraving marking this as an exclusive item for Rachel Zoe's Box of Style. This necklace helps promote Dylanlex's new DLNLX line, which features everyday style for $45 to $195.

I received the necklace as part of the blogger preview back in December and wore it at Christmas. I liked the look, but found it too short. I even wore it on the last link and it still seemed off. I had to keep adjusting it all night. I think the design works better as a choker.

This is a re-post of the snap I shared in December.

Sunday Riley Tidal Enzyme Brightening Water Cream ($65)
I've been looking forward to this cream for months. I have heard such great things about it! This water cream brightens, soothes, and hydrates.

It's incredibly light and feels great over or under makeup. This will do wonders for my winter-dried skin!

D.L. & Co The Zoe Report "Birch" Custom Candle ($50)
This birch candle offers a relaxing woodsy scent. Use it to enhance your at-home spa experience or make it the focal point of a chic table setting.

The glass jar of my candle was covered with greasy fingerprints. From reading other reviews and forums, others experienced the same. Not the best quality control with this product.

The Winter 2016 Box of Style from Rachel Zoe included seven items, valued at $433 US! While it's disappointing that the winter box shipped so late, I'm happy to have all the products now. The card case and Sunday Riley cream have already been put to use!  

If you'd like to get your hands on this one, it's still available. Use promo code WINTER10 at checkout to save $10 on your seasonal subscription. Code is valid until January 31st.

  1. Love your review and pics!
    I just joined box of style and I also live in Canada. I'm wondering if you can tell me if you received a proper tracking number to track your box.
    I feel like the emails I've received regarding tracking info are not making sense. And I'm also wondering if I am unable to successfully track my box, what if I am not home when it comes?
    Any response would be appreciated.

    1. Because I get an influencer review box and it's not an actual subscription, I don't get a track number at all.
      Typically if you aren't home to receive your box, Canada Post will leave a delivery notice and you go to the nearest post office to pick it up. The instructions would be on the delivery notice.
