A watched package never delivers....or so it seems. My anxious wait for my third Rocksbox set, included checking the UPS delivery status several times a day. I mailed back my second set on a Wednesday, and my third set arrived the following week, on Thursday. Tuesday was Veteran's Day, so no mail, bringing the turn-around time to exactly a week. The package actually arrived before the UPS Estimate, making me question the reliability of the tracking.
I had high hopes for this third set. Based on the photographs on the Rocksbox Website, I liked all of the pieces.
Here is what I received.
And my stylist note. I really like this personalized touch.
First up, the Loren Hope Blythe Necklace in Merlot. I had added this statement necklace to my wishlist.
I didn't like the chain, it's clunky and an odd rusty/silver color. Not pretty. I did like the stones. Here is a closer look at them.
How to pair this? I have very little in my wardrobe that works with the wine colored stones. I ended up pairing it with a navy and cream colored TopShop sweater. It's been so warm in Los Angeles, that I haven't yet broken in this new sweater! C'mon autumn, I'm ready for sweater weather!
I was most excited about the Sophie Harper ZigZag Ring Set. It's a set of three interlocking rings.
Unfortunately, it was not as delicate as it appears in the website picture. The ring was huge and clunky. I didn't like it at all. Here is a picture of me wearing it.
I gave myself a quick, at home manicure for the picture ( clearly something that I should leave to the pros). The nail polish was also something new, a gold glitter with light pink flecks: Butter London's West End Wonderland. I bought it last winter and forgot about it, but I love it for the holidays.
The last item was a pair of Kendra Scott Tessa Stud Earrings in Iridescent Drusy.
Love, love, love the sparkle of these earrings. It doesn't show up in the pictures, but they absolutely glittered and are a pure white, like fresh snow. Beautiful color. The shape was nice too. If the price-point had been lower, I probably would have splurged, but at fifty-two dollars ( the discounted price), I just didn't love them enough.
Here's a shot of the necklace and earrings.
I can't wait to see the goodies in box four!
