Friday Favs – new series

Happy Friday!  I’m starting a new weekly series called Friday Favs.  I’ve been thinking about this for ages as there are so many great things I see and read throughout the week.  So every Friday I’m going to share my Friday Favs which could be about interior design, fashion, seasonal stuff…..anything goes. 

Today’s post is all about fashion…..specifically about a new subscription box that I discovered, fell in love with and ordered.  And no, this is not a sales pitch…..I just love getting a box of goodies in the mail every 3 months and want to share it with you.  Rachel Zoe is a California based fashion designer and stylist to many celebrities in Hollywood.  She also has a great newsletter called the Zoe Report for update-to-date news on all the fashion trends and styles you need to know about.  And she has Box of Style.   To better explain exactly what it is…..I will quote how they describe Rachel Zoe’s Box of Style on their website: 

“Imagine getting a sleek box containing over $350 worth of products hand-selected by Rachel Zoe and The Zoe Report editors delivered right to your door—sounds too good to be true, right? Consider your stars aligned, because that’s exactly what you get when you spend just $100 on a Box of Style. Bringing Rachel’s unparalleled sense of glamour to the masses, this coveted subscription box ships seasonally—that’s four times annually—and is filled with an expertly styled assortment of fashion, beauty and lifestyle obsessions that’ll keep you looking and feeling chic year-round.”

When I saw what was included in the fall Box of style, I had to order it.  This is what I got last week in the mail.  How chic is this box! I was so excited……it felt like Christmas morning!

And what was inside made me jump for joy!  This image is from their Instagram page and summarizes the contents of the box….you can see each piece here.

Every box has a hero item, and in the fall box of style it was this gorgeous colour blocked cape by Donni Charm.  When I saw it I had to have it……and of course everything else inside!

 Isn`t it gorgeous? I knew I could wear this cape throughout the cold fall and winter months.  And because there are so many fashionable ways to wear this cape, I decided to `model` 3 different looks on how to style the cape and the beautiful leather tassel cinch belt that also came in the box.  This is me pretending to be a fashion blogger 😉 

Look 1: 

I`m wearing the cape casually loose around the shoulders – which is how I wear it most of the time around the house.  I took the belt and used it as a choker for some added panache!

They actually reposted this picture from my instagram page…how fabulous is that! LOL!

Look 2: 

For an effortless look, just wrap the tassel belt around the cape…..for a very chic ensemble.

Look 3: 

Here, I wrapped the cape around my neck as a cozy scarf.  Then I got my daughter to wrap the belt around my wrist as a very cool bracelet.  Perfect for chilly mornings walking my doggie.

The Winter Box of Style is getting ready to ship in December.  They showed us a sneak peek of  the hero product and it is this stunning necklace!
