The packing for the box reminded me of Rachel Zoe Box of Style and special edition boxes!

Everything in the Happy Rebel Spring 2016 Box!

Deux Lux Croc Embossed Vegan Clutch ($58) Even the clutch that’s included in this box is well-protected in a cute storage bag.Happy Rebel Box Spring 2016 (5)

Deux Lux is well known for producing fashionable synthetic (vegan) leather pieces. They’re high quality and a really great choice for this box!

I loved the design of this clutch! The cool and black color choice was perfect, as was the reptile-skin embossing and the center design that looks like vertebrae! It has a touch of metallic accents that’s perfect.

Here’s a closer look on the inside of the clutch. There’s a small inside pocket to  keep valuables in for a night out.

Lindt Extra Dark Lindor Truffle (Bonus!) Dark & Delicious!

Essie Cashmere Matte “Spun in Luxe” Nail Polish ($8) This is some seriously dark blue polish! Dark enough to qualify in my inner 15 year old’s “my nail must be as black as my soul” requirements but still somehow perfect for every day wear with the right amount of blue (and the cashmere matte finish, which isn’t totally matte but turns out not entirely shiny).

The blue-black nail polish is perfect for any girl’s night out and match the clutch really well!

Arbotique Designs Sterling Silver Midi Rings ($12) These rings can be worn individually or in stacks. They’re pretty and well made but I would probably just wear them on my pinky. This artisan uses recycled silver for her pieces!

EyLure Lashes Texture No. 154 ($8) To me these eyelashes scream burlesque. Like something retro and pin-up-y! They’re fun! The adhesive is included and they’re reusable. I’ll give them a try, but they’re pretty wild!

Marlyn Schiff Chunky Chain Statement Necklace ($78) This is basically the grown up version of my silver dog collar, which I keep in my souvenir box (ahhh 15!). I like how it provides that look/idea while still passing as normal. It’s a piece that’s pretty versatile and one of my favorite ways to wear a necklace like this is with one of my geeky subscription box shirts!

I think this box is good for someone who embraces edgy fashion with an open mind and isn’t particularly married to a specific look or style – it’s definitely an “I’m not 15 anymore but I still like to preserve elements of that style” box vs a full-on goth/punk/whatever other niche group you can think of look box. More of an edgy city chic where you can incorporate the items into your own look and style. I thought it was a great curatorial decision to stick with silver for this box and I thought the mature elements of macabre in the clutch probably satisfied most subscribers! I’m definitely hoping for an improved value on the Summer box.  While the total value of the items are almost $165, which is definitely not bad for a newcomer like Happy Rebel, I’d like to see this box pack a bigger punch for a $100 price tag! It was still super fun and I’m personally in love with the clutch!

    Thanks for the great review, Brandy! Glad you love the clutch. And yes, our purchasing power will grow with out subscriber base and we will pass that additional value on to our members! We already anticipate a higher value for our summer box! #DocMartens4Life 😉

    I don’t NEED any of these items (I have so many clutches, so much jewelry and plenty of nail polish that I rarely wear) but I really LIKE all of them! It’s probably because I like these types of things that I have to many of them already… so it makes we WANT the box but at the same time I won’t actually buy the box.

    Hearing about your teen goth phase is fun! Great review!!

      LOL that was your test to see if anyone actually reads what I write! There were maroon lips involved too. Lots of doc martens. I still have my patent leather docs. because obviously. 🙂
