After a few disappointing boxes, I was pleased with Rocksbox box nine. It arrived in less than a week, faster than any other shipment and it contained pieces that I seriously considered keeping. I took a look at the stylist on my previous boxes and although I'm only given their first name, it seems like "Lisa", who styled box nine, also styled two other boxes. The "Lisa Boxes" have been notably better than the ones sent from other stylists.
Kendra Scott is a hit or miss brand for me. Over the years, I've purchased a few pieces from Kendra Scott via Nordstrom, but often I'm not drawn to the brand. I was sent the Kendra Scott Rayne Silver Necklace in White Pearl.
Out of the box, I wasn't sure about the necklace. It's clunky. However, when paired with a green sweater, the appeal factor shot up. It's complimentary and I like the long length.
I gave thought to how it would work in my wardrobe, trying to pair it with several outfits and ultimately, I declined the necklace, because I didn't think it would get frequent wear.
The Sophie Harper Pave Square Studs in Silver are very pretty.
l love the sparkle, size, shape, feel, et...nothing to dislike. However, I have several similar pairs from other brands.
The most unusual piece was the Nakamol Mixed Green Wrap Bracelet. This bracelet comes in several colors and I had it on my wishlist.
Green is my favorite color. I have tons of green in my wardrobe, including mint, which this bracelet would perfectly compliment. The bracelet has a spring/summer vibe and aesthetically fits with the style of my warm weather wardrobe. The bracelet seemed like a keeper.
The problem was the way it clasps. It's one giant beaded string with knots and loops to keep it tied. This creates an excess of material that needs to either hang loose or be tucked. I tried both options, both were awkward and itchy. It looked nice from the top, but messy underneath.
Although I didn't purchase jewelry from this set, I feel a renewed hope that Rockbox is starting to understand my preferences. Originally, I was going to give my Rocksbox experiment a ten box try, so let's see how they do with box ten. If they knock it out of the park, I may need to keep going! Truthfully, when the boxes arrive, I still feel like a kid on Christmas morning. It's a sunny spot among the bills and junk mail.
