What is Rocksbox?

I've had a few inquiries so I figured it was time for me to explain.

What is Rocksbox?

According to their website; "Rocksbox is a membership-based jewelry styling service. Members pay a flat rate of $19/month to get access to a personalized rotating closet of designer jewelry, sent in sets of three at a time."

Basically, they send you a pretty box with three pieces of jewelry based on a style profile that you fill out - and when you get bored you send it back and they send you three new pieces. Included is a pre-paid shipping label so all you do is re-seal the package, slap on the label and put it in a mailbox. Easy peasy :)

I guess I'm moving up in the world because Rocksbox asked me to be one of their "It Girls" (thanks, guys!) and gave me a code to share with you. With SHOPPINGGALXOXO you get your first month free. Fun & free, what's not to like?

I shared my first box on Insta & Facebook - and everyone seemed to go gaga for that Charlene K agate blue quartz cuff. It was hands down my favorite piece in the box.

I made sure to put it to use and wore it to the wedding I attended last week :) Looks great with my $20 Rebecca Minkoff sample sale clutch, right?

The other pieces didn't exactly work for me. The wires on the Margaret Elizabeth faceted drops in moonstone were rather flimsy, plus I need more contrast for my coloring.

I almost wore these Perry Street daisy crystal earrings to the wedding but I felt they cheapened my look so I went with the cuff instead. Pretty, but not for me.

I sent them back hoping for a better mix in my next box and this is what I got:

I was happy they sent me these Gorjana Mave shimmer drop studs that I requested (you can set up a wishlist and request pieces!) but the rest of the box didn't pop for me.

Recognize my new 90% off Hache leather jacket?

Confession - I didn't wash my face that day. I actually worked out and ran out without showering because I was running late. Sometimes as a mom you do what ya gotta do. I put on my House of Harlow sunglasses (Century21, 75% off, $15) to hide the fact that I wasn't wearing any makeup - just some pink Revlon gloss (I think it's one of their lip butters). I can't believe I got a decent pic anyway LOL.

I also mixed the Gamine Celeste bracelet in gold in with my thrifted and Rack bracelets, and I have to say it was a nice addition to my stack.

The Jenny Bird palm rope necklace in turquoise is pretty but not my style anymore. I used to wear longer necklaces when I was heavier to create as many vertical lines as possible. If it was Summer I might have tried it with a plain white T but it's still pretty Wintery over here.

I'm hoping for a box with bolder pieces next time - I've actually already mailed these back. Even if you aren't thrilled with the selection you just send 'em back and try again :) No commitment! If you do like something they give you $10 a month towards your purchases as a "Shine Insider" plus a discount on each item in your box.

Don't forget, it's not too late to use my code SHOPPINGGALXOXO to get your first month free! Hope you love Rocksbox as much as I do :)
