RocksBox Review


I have fabulous new monthly subscription service to share with you all. You may be thinking, 'not another subscription service...,' but this one is different! RocksBox is a membership-based jewelry styling service. As a member, you pay a flat rate of $19/month to trial unlimited designer jewelry, sent to you 3 pieces at a time.

You start by taking a style profile. This is how RocksBox learns your style and puts together jewelry selections they think are a good fit. You can also put in special jewelry requests. You'll receive 3 pieces that are tailored to your style. You can wear them and show them off to your friends, and then do one of two things: 1) Send them back for new pieces to accessorize with or 2) Buy them! If you fall in love with one of the pieces you have the option to buy it at a discounted RocksBox price.

I think the best part about RocksBox is that you get to try out new jewelry that you may not have picked out for yourself on a regular shopping trip. In my first RocksBox, 2 out of the 3 items I would not have picked out for myself, but after pairing them with dresses during my weekend in New Orleans, I fell in love!

Here's what I got in my first box...

There was something about this bracelet by David Aubrey that reminded me of the time I spent in India. Maybe the jade and gold pairing? At any rate, I loved it. I wore this around New Orleans while we were exploring and out at night. The 5 strands of jade make it look like you are wearing several different bracelets. 

This is not a necklace I would normally pick out for myself, which is the point of RocksBox. It gets you to try new, edgy styles that you normally wouldn't dare to wear. The House of Harlow Fringe Pedant got me many compliments! I LOVED this necklace. It hung pretty low, down to my belly button, and was super edgy. I wore it with a black dress the few times I wore it, but would have also went well with a solid color top or dress or a neutral color. 

This CC Skye Pave Dome Ring screams cocktail party or black tie affair. I wish I could have kept it for my holiday party in December! I love pave settings. This picture does not do it justice. It sparkled beautifully. It could also be dressed down with jeans and blank tank. 


After you receive your items and wear them out you can then log into your account and give feedback on each item. This will help RockBox select the next set of items you receive. I can't wait to see what I get in my next RocksBox shipment. I love the idea of having new accessories to keep my outfits fresh. Sometimes a single accessory can change an entire outfit. 

Have you heard of RocksBox or received a box yet? If so, what do you think so far? Leave a comment or tweet at me with @MyRocksBox #RocksBoxiFabbo

What's Your Favorite Piece of Clothing?

My favorite piece of clothing is also my staple piece: my black Tinley Road blazer from Piperlime. It transitions well from work to night, with jeans or over a dress. It's a staple in my suitcase for every trip I go on. I especially love the cut of this particular blazer: cropped in the back and lifted shoulders is flattering to my figure.

How I Wear My Michael Kors Watch


Michael Kors is releasing their  new Limited Edition Runway Watch for fall. The Paris themed watch is going to debut on October 15, and is the second in a series of destination inspried watches, following the New York version. 

This watch is BEAUTIFUL. The intricate design of the Eiffel Tower on the backside is amazing. Paris holds a special place in my heart since my husband proposed under the Eiffel Tower in Vegas. When we went to Paris after we were married, he reenacted his proposal under the real Eiffel Tower - J'adore Paris!


To celebrate the debut of this new watch, Michael Kors kicked off its #MKTimeless social campaign. Fans can post photos of their Michael Kors watches to Instagram or Twitter with the hashtag #MKTimeless for entries to win a watch of the own.

In case you are wondering, below is how I would rock my Michael Kors Paris Limited Edition Runway Watch. This watch is perfect for going from day to night. I would rock it with a blazer during the day, and then slip off my blazer to leave a black dress and ankle boots for night. 

Love your Michael Kors watch? Show them how you wear it! Share your photo on Instagram or Twitter with the tag #MKTimeless for a chance to win the Paris Limited Edition Runway watch.


Michael Kors is also rewarding the top 3 bloggers who drive the most social interaction a watch for keeps and a watch to giveaway to a lucky reader! So please tweet, share on FB and leave a comment below!
