So I’ve gone through some trials and tribulations with the Luxe Box over the past few months. November was a disappointment, December it was back on form, but January brings changes in Luxe Box, and I made a decision.
First off, the designers that participate in Luxe Box are all high quality, and nothing included in the subscription is ‘junk’. It’s just not for me. I want to make sure I make that part clear; Empire, Lamb, Moon, Ison, Foxes – all of them are quality and if their wares are your style, they’re very, very solid choices.
Luxe Box is making two big changes. Instead of the usual 12 items in each box, there will be 8 every month, and instead of the monthly rate of 1,500L to subscribe, it will set you back 1,000L to join the Luxe Box group. From a straight mathematical standpoint, that seems pretty fair, right? Lower the amount of items in the box by a third, lower the price by a third – all’s well. The thing is, fewer items means, say, two items that aren’t for me being the box being 25% “bad”. I’d rather pay the extra 500L and have a better chance of really enjoying my box rather than feeling disappointed at a quarter of my purchases.
So I made a decision. I made a small list of designers that have been in Luxe Box in the past. I’m going to check at the Luxe Box Boutique every month and if any of those designers are listed as participating, I’ll subscribe. If not, I’ll pass. I figure even one fat pack from Blueberry or Vinyl or any of the other designers on my list is worth 1,000L, and the rest is gravy, right?
