My February 2014 Fancy Box arrived with no fanfare–usually I receive a shipping notice, but this month the box just showed up! I wasn’t feeling the need for house knick knacks or gadgets so I changed up my categories this month–limiting it to only “women’s”. I was curious how that would affect the selections, so let’s take a look.
First observation–no basketball-sized box this month! The box was almost (if not) exactly the same size as Pop Sugar Must Have.
The contents included:
- Eva NYC galaxy ceramic styling iron (retail $80)
- Gipsy tights (I’m guessing these are the contrast heart tights, which retail for $16)
- Style Book II: Pattern and Print (retail $29.95 but is under $21 on Amazon)
- Twistband hair tie set (retail $7)
Fancy includes info cards for products, which is nice.
Photos of the unwrapped goodies are below.
I think the box is pretty good–limiting the categories worked better for me. The tights are adorable; they have 2 red hearts that lean slightly hooker-ish, but my bigger problem is that they are “one size”. How the hell can a pair of tights be one size, lol?
The book is also really cute–it’s a hefty 400+ pages, but compact in size and great for any fashion lover. As for the hair ties, is there a subscription box that hasn’t included these? I have mid-length hair and have been pulling it back more since I have about 300 of these things now, but might swap or gift these. I’m not sure how I feel about the styling iron. I am very low-maintenance, so never curl/style my hair, but it’s nice to have one of these contraptions if I ever decide I want to scald my scalp or get my hair tangled up in an appliance :).
This is the last of my 3-month subscription, so after I post my Tyler Florence box, this is it for me and Fancy!
