The Zoe Report Spring Box of Style 2017

 Spring Box of Style from The Zoe Report

Press Sample

Unlike a lot of people, I don’t typically get excited about spring. This might sound insane, but I love wearing boots and scarves and dark, rich colors. But something must have changed in me because this year I’m all about spring; spring fashion and spring beauty. Perhaps it also has a little to do with this season’s The Zoe Report Spring Box of Style. $100/quarter.

Spring Box of Style Box Detail Insert 

Inspired by the ultimate bohemian-style icon of the 60s, Talitha Getty, this spring’s box is packed full of gorgeous graphic prints and must have beauty necessities. The Spring Box of Style, valued at over $460, also pays homage to female-founded brands that are working to empower women with style and flare.

Spring Box of Style Bonus Item

Spring Box of Style Stella Artois Limited Edition Chalice

Before I share all the fabulousness of this box, let’s talk about the amazing bonus item all subscribers received.  It comes courtesy of Stella Artois in support of their #1Chalice5Years campaign with water.org. Perhaps you’ve seen the ads featuring Matt Damon talking about how buying one of these chalices can help provide 5 years of clean water for 1 person in the developing world.

This is an amazing cause and I’m thrilled to see these glasses included in our boxes. There are nine glasses in the collection, each representing a different country. I received the Uganda glass and it is truly stunning. Each glass costs, $13, which is a small price to pay for supplying someone with five years of clean water. I plan on buying a few more to support the cause. If you are interested, visit www.BuyALadyADrink.com.

Hero Item: Tribe Alive Custom Carryall – $238

Spring Box of Style Tribe Alive Bag 

“As a working mom on-the-go, I live for a chic-yet-functional carryall. Handmade by female artisans, this is truly a bag with a purpose, making it even more major to carry.” RZ

I typically carry the same bag all year long, except when I’m going out and need something smaller. Lately, though, my everyday bag has me feeling uninspired. I’m beyond thrilled to have a new bag to use this spring, especially when it is so gorgeous and very well made. The Tribe Alive bag is the perfect size for toting around anything this season throws my way. I also really love knowing that I’m helping to support the Indian artisans responsible for its design and creation.

The Totally Adornable: Adornmonde Iva Earrings- $62

Spring Box of Style Adornmonde earrings 

“Bold earrings are an effortless way to upgrade any ensemble. This modern take on a classic hoop is sculptural and unexpected.” RZ

 I don’t know how The Zoe Report editors do it, but somehow, they manage to consistently choose jewelry that I want to wear repeatedly. The Adornmonde Ivo Earrings meet that criteria.

Subscribers were given the option of choosing gold or silver. I opted for gold as I needed a new pair of gold hoops. What I like most about the Ivo earrings is that they offer you two options for wear. You can wear the bars alone or pair them with the hopes. Or if you are feeling truly bold you can wear a bar on one ear and the bar and hoop on the other. Not so sure I can pull that look off, but I’m willing to give it a go.

The Tied & True: Symbology Scarf- $50

Spring Box of Style Symbology Scarf 

“A bold scarf is one of the most versatile accessories a woman can own. This handcrafted exclusive can be styled so many different ways and instantly adds personal flavor to any outfit.” RZ

 This maroon and gold scarf is a standout piece in the Spring Box of Style. While I own several spring scarves, they don’t make quite the same statement at this one from Symbology. Nor are they made my female artisans from India and the West Bank.

From what I’ve seen, these shorter type scarves are making a comeback this season. I feel like the last time I wore something like this was when I was in college in the mid to late 90s. Right now, I have the scarf tied around the handle of my Tribe Alive bag. The pop of red and gold look amazing mixed with the white and black geometric pattern of the bag. I also plan to use the styling recommendations of the Zoe Report editors and wear the scarf like they do in France, loosely tied around my neck. And I bet it would look very chic tied around the wrist like a cuff.

 The Haute Hydrator: BKR Glass & Silicone Water Bottle – $35

Spring Box of Style BKR Water Bottle 

“With a renewed focus on wellness, staying hydrated is key to looking and feeling your best. This sleek design is one you’ll actually want to tote around, making it even easier to get your daily dose of H2O.” RZ

I’ve amassed quite a collection of different water bottles over the years, each chosen for a different reason. Although I’ve always wanted a BKR bottle, the price tag kept me from swiping my credit card. I’m glad to finally have one thanks to this season’s box.

There’s so much to love about BKR water bottles. Unlike most bottles, these are made from glass, which makes them much better for the environment. Plus, I don’t need to be concerned about the BPA or BPA-free controversy. Not to mention, the blush color of the silicon sleeve is stunning.  The size of this bottle is also perfection. It’s easy to tote around, slip into a bag, or into in the cup holder in the car.

The Skin Savior: Tatcha Polished Gentle Rice Enzyme Powder – $65

Spring Box of Style Tatcha Gentle Rice Enzyme Powder 

“As we move into spring, reviving tired winter skin is a must, and it all starts with a great exfoliator. Gentle on skin, this powder is my first step to a healthy glow.” RZ

 I’ve heard amazing things about this Tatcha Enzyme Powder so I couldn’t wait to try it. I’ve used a rice-based exfoliator/mask product before and enjoyed the results. You do have to get past the smell, but it is well worth it.The powder is super gentle, even on sensitive skin like mine, and does a great job of sloughing off dead skin cells. I can see why so many people rave about it. I really enjoy the smart design of the packaging as well, which makes it easy to pour out just the right amount of powder.

The Sweet Treat: Butter London Nail Polish “Piece of Cake”- $18

 Spring Box of Style Butter London Nail Lacquer

“A sleek mani is the ultimate finishing touch to any look and “Piece of Cake” is sheer perfection – a fresh twist on bold neutrals.” RZ

 There is nothing sheer about this pink polish. It’s highly opaque and really pops on my pale skin. I’m usually not a fan of neutral nail polish because it can end up making my hands and nails look dead. But I’m digging the way this bold pink looks on my digits. It’s very feminine, yet not too girly. I don’t know if it will be a go-to for me this spring, but I can see it making a few appearances beyond this week.

Overall: If you haven’t guessed by now, I adore everything about The Zoe Report Spring Box of Style. It remains one of my favorite subscriptions boxes. I absolutely think it is worth the $100/quarter investment, especially considering the value you receive in return. This season’s box alone was worth over $450. I know I will get lots of use out of every single item I received long after spring has turned to summer. Speaking of summer, I can’t wait to see what The Zoe Report has planned for Summer Box of Style.

  • Allison @neversaydiebeauty

    That’s a fabulous box! I love everything in it. The scarf especially is my style – looks very retro from the 1940s! I have the Tatcha Rice Powder and I love it. The butterLondon polish is so pretty for spring!

    • I love the rice powder too–this is a great sub box!

  • Brenda Harris Haire

    I haven’t gotten on the box train yet but this is tempting! I’m a wanna be minimalist so I always think about the things that I wouldn’t use. In this box, the only thing I wouldn’t use right away would be the scarf. It’s too hot in Texas for scarves in the Spring. In fact, it was too hot here all year this past year for scarves. I absolutely love the water glass! It reminds me of my Grandmother. She always made us set the table with a water glass. Oh how I miss her! She just passed in February. I just moved her dinning room table to my home this weekend. It’s still so raw. The glass idea is amazing! Thanks for sharing such good feedback and links for each items!

  • seems like a good box with some high ticket items in it. I love the nail polish color. Like you I tended to shy away from certain colors, but since I got some in a beauty box that have now grown on me I’ve learned to get outside my box.

    • That’s what’s so great about subcription boxes–they let you try new things!

  • Karen Yannacio Morse

    Loving all these items, and the BONUS Stella glass! I have one of those BKR glass water bottles that I got from Nordstrom saying, “NORDY Girl” and I adore it. Such a fabulous subscription box, but I expect no less from Rachel Zoe!

    The Stella Artois glass is the most item that get my attention. First of all because of the good cause behind it and second, it’s the staple of Stella Artois a special glass that enhances the taste of Stella Artois. The earrings meanwhile are simply gorgeous!

  • Lydia

    I have heard of this box, but I find it too expensive since I’m afraid I wouldn’t like the items. A few of these pieces are great, though!

    • It is an investment but luckily only 4x a year.

  • Lisa Marie Heath

    Woah – I love this box! What a great mix of items.

  • I don’t subscribe to any of these boxes yet. However, with awesome and quality items like these, it is definitely tempting.

    • It’s only quarterly so you aren’t spending money every month.

  • WOW this was a great box. I have been using the Tatcha rice powder for years, love it.

  • kim

    This is a great collection of fun things to get. I haven’t seen one valued this high. I don’t like Spring either.

    • I think it might be the highest value yet.

  • This looks like a great box! I absolutely love spring – it means that our very dark and cold winter is coming to an end. Of course spring in Maine means temps in the 50’s…if we are lucky. Today it is a lovely 40 and I still have my sweaters and scarves 🙂

  • TheNewClassy

    That enzyme powder sounds interesting. I think I could put up with the smell as long as it exfoliated my skin well. I have some skin issues that I think it could resolve for me.

  • Krystle Cook

    This bag is so cute! I would love to give this box a try and see what I like.

  • Toni Williams

    I’m glad spring is in the air. I love using the color blush as an accent color…especially as they have it in this box.

  • Rachel Catherine

    This sounds like a great box. I love the water bottle. I recently received one from another box service.

  • BKR bottles are so trendy on IG, I’ve seen them beautifully styled by some of my favorite accounts. Love the color of the one you got!

  • What a great box! Especially love that bag which looks perfect for spring!

    • It’s my new favorite spring bag.
