Popsugar Must Have

Happy Friday!! I am not one for monthly subscription boxes because after a while I feel they are pretty redundant. BUT this Popsugar Must Have x CFDA box is unlike any other subscription I have ever received. It does come with a hefty price tag of $225, but the contents in the box are worth up to $700! They had a deal on Gilt City for the box for $125 and I had a credit, so it was the perfect way for me to try this out!

Popsugar collaborated with the CFDA for this box and 50% of the proceeds went to supporting American Fashion! Fashion allows me and others to express our personality through our style. One of my favorite things about Fashion is individual style and how cultures affect the way we dress. The CFDA is a not-for-profit trade association that consists of more than 500 America’s womenswear, menswear, jewelry and accessories designers. They hold annual awards as well support the future of American Fashion. CFDA helps to develop emerging designers, with education, resources and scholarships. The United States is home to some of my favorite designers and headquartered to some of the biggest names in the game!

Lets discuss the contents of this box!

Lemlem Split Cover Up– Retail $195

I am excited to wear this for my trip to Puerto Rico in February, but honestly I would never spend almost $200 on this coverup. I was really happy to get this as a gift in here and I had never heard of this brand before so thanks to Popsugar for introducing me to a new brand!

 Illesteva Leonard Tortoise with silver mirrored lenses– Retail $177

Probably my favorite item in this box! I cannot wait for it to be sunny again in Chicago so I can wear these sunnies 🙂

3.1 Phillip lim 10th Anniversary Limited Edition Nano second Pouch– Retail $195

Made with nice leather and a perfect little makeup bag I can use to throw in my purse. Another item that I think is fantastic to have and the quality is great, but I wouldn’t jump to buy with the price tag attached.

Elizabeth and James Nirvana Black Dry Shampoo – Retail $28

This fragrance dry shampoo smells AMAZING! I have already used it three times since I received this box in the beginning of the week. The perfume smell is a little overwhelming at first, but it tones down pretty quickly and absorbs oil well.

Derek Lam 10 Crosby Fragrance Collection Set  -$95

This collection has 10 distinctive fragrances based on one street, 10 stories and 10 moments. I have been looking for a new perfume for a while, so its great to try a different scent everyday with this super adorable fragrance set!

S’well Water bottle– $35

This bottle was made exclusively for this collaboration. I purchased a black s’well bottle at a target over a month ago and I highly recommend purchasing one, it keeps your cold drinks really cold and warm drinks very hot. They are a proud sponsor and supporter of UNICEF and since 2015 they have donated over $200,000!


Overall I am super happy with the contents in this subscription box and can’t wait to see what comes in the next limited edition box! Thanks Popsugar and the CFDA! 🙂 What’s your favorite monthly subscription box?

Hope Everyone enjoys their weekend!
