In 7th Grade I had a goal to win Best Accessories in the “Best Dressed” section of the year book. My mom took me to Claire’s and let me pick out some fun jewelry. For a month straight I wore an armful of rhinestones bracelets that matched my outfit, multiple necklaces, rings on every other finger, and topped off the look with statement earrings.
Would you be surprised if I told you I lost? I have to admit I had no idea what I was doing and I looked pretty ridiculous. The girl that did win was ahead of her years in the fashion department and really knew how to style pieces together.
I will never forget that year because it’s when my passion for accessories and jewelry truly began. It’s also when I learned I had NO idea how to pair items with an outfit and I could learn a thing or two from that girl. (Who was actually super sweet and did help me style some outfits!)
Now, I love jewelry even more because it lets me transform my outfits into something spectacular and sometimes all you need to finish a look is a dainty necklace or a statement ring.
That’s why Rocksbox grabbed my attention. I am a sucker for monthly subscription boxes. I love the idea of fun new things being shipped to my door with little effort from me. So after seeing SO many posts about Rocksbox, I decided to give it a try.
When you sign up you take a quiz to help your stylist send you the perfect items. They ask you what metals you prefer to wear and, your necklace, bracelet, earing, and ring style. As well as what trends you are wiling to try. You fill in your ring size and anything else you want your stylist to know. Once you are signed up, (USE CODE: PICKINGDAISIESXOXO TO GET YOUR FIRST MONTH FREE) your stylist will put together 3 pieces valued around $150 a box and ship them to you! You pay $21 a month and are free to wear the items for as long as you like. Once you are done and ready for another box, ship back the items you don’t want to keep! If there is something you can’t part with, use your $21 credit to apply towards purchasing the piece.
HOW IT WORKS
For your first month they will send you a box of 3 pieces that were picked out for you by your designer. Wear the pieces for as long as you want and when you’re done, ship back the ones you don’t want. You only pay for what you keep and you can apply your $21 credit towards the piece. Once you have either shipped back the items you didn’t want or bought the entire box, they’ll charge you $21 (remember- you apply this towards the items you keep) and ship you a new box!
I am a sucker for subscription boxes. I think it makes shopping fast, easy, and convenient. Plus half the time I forget and it’s an AWESOME surprise every month. What drew me to Rocksbox is the experience of the box. Sometimes in subscriptions you get items you would never use but are stuck with it.
Rocksbox allows you to only keep and pay for the items you really would use. So you don’t have a pile of useless, unused items at the end of the year. I also struggle with buying jewelry. I want to look cute with accessories but find myself getting clothes instead. It seems like most jewelry in stores is cheap and tarnishes overtime or turns your fingers green-GROSS.
Rocksbox ships high-quality, fashionable jewelry made from metals that you don’t have to worry about tarnishing or turning you green. Each item is unique and stylish. It helps you throw together the perfect Insta-worthy outfit.
I also found the value to be worth it. Every so often they have top designers (like Kendra Scott) included in your box. The price to buy is extremely reasonable and I like that you can apply your credit. There are also items I may not have bought for myself but once I tried them on, I couldn’t live without it. (Like these gold hoop earrings-OH MY GOSH BURY ME IN THESE PLEASE!)
SIGN UP FREE MONTH
This is for sure a subscription I am going to keep. Plus the holidays are coming up and if I get a piece my mom, aunt, or sister-in-law would love, I will just use my credit on it! Knocks out having to buy a Christmas (or birthday present) for me! If you want to try Rocksbox for free, use code: PICKINGDAISIESXOXO to get your first month free!
