How to Be More Trendy with Accessories
fashion appears to come very naturally to some people…and i am not one of them (we know how i dressed in high school). i am not even kidding when i tell you that 3/4 of my closet and almost all of my jewelry is picked out by my mom. she is super fashionable! whenever i’m back home or she’s out here, we go shopping and our conversations go like this:
mom: “oh this is cute – try this on!”
me: “ew no.”
mom: “just try it.”
me: “fine” and then i do because mom voice is a real thing. then i usually love whatever the item is. she’s good.
she also loves to put her family in matching sweaters:
she has an eye for fashion (those are the cutest matching sweaters ever) that they just don’t make a contact lens for – if they did, i would buy it. that is how almost all of my clothes and jewelry come into my possession. however, she lives 1,274 miles away from me so it’s not feasible for her to always dress and accessorize me (oh and i guess i’m 28?) i am often left to my own devices – until now!
as we know, there are a ton of subscription boxes for just about everything under the sun. i sort of rolled my eyes at most of these because i felt like no way would they be able to deliver good stuff to all these different people with different styles. this is where i was incredibly impressed with Rocksbox! want to be more trendy with accessories? hire my mom or check out Rocksbox!
for just $19 bucks a month, they will send you 3 pieces of hand-selected designer jewelry (that means it’s real cute and based on a survey you take so they understand your style)! AND you can send it back as often as you want in that month to get new jewelry! i got the hook-up for you for a FREE month to try it out – just go to Rocksbox and enter the code newwifestylexoxo !
i emailed Rocksbox to let them know i had my high school reunion the following week and i wanted something “cool but not too cool…you know?” and then they did know!
i super love that necklace (by SLATE) and if it weren’t for being on a super strict budget at the moment (more on that later), it could have been mine for $34 instead of the retail price of $56. totally reasonable!
to be honest, i was hesitant that my stylist (you get a personal stylist!) would send me a massive colorful necklace or a super sparkly bracelet. i have to be in a very particular mood to wear colorful anything. give me all the grays and blacks, with a dash of cream and i’m good. that’s totally what i got and i was so impressed. i also told her in the survey i don’t wear earrings (gauged ears) and she heard that loud and clear to not ever send me earrings.
the ring is by kendra scott (apparently a fancy designer) it was unique and totally my style! the instant i put it on i was like “ohhh look at me!” it was $52. i just started typing on my computer so i could see the ring in action.
the bracelet was my jam too – chevron in silver? yes please. that one was $76.
yes, i have hair on my arms because i am a mammal.
when my husband was taking the various photos, he said “how do fashion bloggers take their photos?” and i said “well…they are always looking off in the distance at something way more interesting than the camera” so here you go:
i’m quite impressed with what Rocksbox features (and how everything is so cutely presented when it arrives to your door). plus, they give you free shipping there and back, with a label and package all ready to go. it’s super easy which is great since i’m super lazy sometimes, especially when it comes to making myself look less like a 17 year old boy.
use the code newwifestylexoxo to get a box totally free to your door now! happy friday!
