I was feeling reckless earlier this month, and for some people that means drunken stupors, elopement, gambling, etc. For me, it meant subscribing to the Socialbliss Style Box sight unseen. There were no hints as to what to expect except for fashion accessories and “lifestyle products” (whatever that means) valued at $100, all for the rock bottom (?) price of $47.90 ($39.95 + shipping). It was a risk. Here we go…
The box was unmarked, so I wasn’t sure what it was when it arrived. The inside wrapping was very cute.
At first glance, the information card revealed the box’s theme: Rockstar. And my brain immediately went to Barbie & the Rockers…uh oh. The other side of the card revealed the January 2014 Socialbliss Style Box contents and their value:
- A “forever cool” (I’m guessing that isn’t trademarked…) black fedora by the Hatter Company (retail $22)
- A studded clutch (retail $55)
- A Strela Silver bullet necklace by Shield & Honor (retail $60, which seems crazy high, but there’s a great cause behind it)
- A NYX smokey eye shadow and lip color palette (retail $12)
The items were clearly thoughtfully selected to go with the theme and are really sweet (I’m overlooking the bullet here and focusing on the story behind it…). There is a nice variety of makeup, jewelry, & accessories, all detailed in the card. In my opinion the box is perfect for a college student, maybe a high schooler, or someone in their 20’s (sadly, I am no longer any of those). The style is not for me at all. I would look like the world’s biggest jackass wearing anything other than the makeup (and even that is a question mark, ha ha).
The nice thing about Socialbliss is they say you can return the box if you don’t like it. I’m sure I will be out the shipping (and probably return) fees, but I plan to see how a return works. I did only order one box (cancelled immediately) so that I could see how I liked the box before committing to more.
Another comment on customer experience: there was no shipping notification–here again, all I had to go by was their website, which says “should be around the middle of the month”.
What do you think about the box?
