I am thinking that a lot of my feed today will be filled with bloggers sharing their loot for the Lilly Pulitzer for Target collaboration.  I will be honest, I have been sucked into many times with these collaborations and end up with some things that I really love (like my Prabal Gurung lace up heels) and things that I hardly wear.  I think I was buying it because it was the "It" item.

I think this collaboration is spot on with colors and style of Lilly Pulitzer and there are some really cute pieces.  But I thought to myself, do I really want to go to the store and stand in line before the store opens or stay up super late to hopefully buy something?  

I don't own any items from this brand and never even look at the items on a lot of the flash sale websites.  The price point for the actual Lilly Pulitzer items are not crazy out of reach like Altuzarra or Prabal Gurung which I know I will never own.  I am not trying to sound like I can afford to buy things at full price but from a price point perspective, I could probably find similar pieces on clearance maybe just a bit more priced than Target's price point.  With these thoughts, I decided to skip it.  If there are items left over if I go to the store, than I will buy it - other wise, I am passing.

Did you pick up anything from this collaboration?

Today, I am so excited to share with you about Rocksbox.  For me, they are the jewelry site of Netflix. For $19 a month, you start on their website a short survey and select items on your wishlist.  Your personal stylist will hand pick and send you 3 name brand items (approximate value of $200) for you to enjoy.  The items are yours to wear until you decide what to purchase or return.  You can return pieces anytime for new items.  If you love what you received, you have the options to purchase for keep at a discount.

For my first box, I received:
1. Gorjana Greer V-Neck Necklace at a discounted price of $52
2. CC Skye Punk Heiress Ring at a discounted price of $78
3. Perry Street Lily Earrings at a discounted price of $34

Since I wear more statement necklaces lately, I have not worn too many big earrings.  I tend to stay away from big earrings in general because they are typically too heavy.  Surprisingly, these are so comfortable.

The necklace & rings have been on me non-stop - I am in love them!

If you would like to try Rocksbox, they are offering a one month free subscription to try it.  Use code:  happinessatmidlifexoxo at check out.  Give it a try, what have you got to lose?

Rocksbox is offering me a 3 month subscription to try out their services.  So far I have been impressed with the easy and speed of delivery.  It comes in great packaging and the pieces are of good quality.
