{Out of the Box}: February 2015 A&M Treasure Box Review

Out of the Box is a feature I do to showcase and give a brief review of products in the subscription boxes that I receive.

This review is a little different as I applied to be a reviewer on the A&M Treasure Box website, and was chosen to review their Whoa Baby!  Everyday Box.  I did receive the box for free in exchange for a fair and honest review.

Some basic housekeeping details first:
A&M Treasure Box offers three different box types:
  • Everyday Box ($22/month; 2-3 pieces of trendy, but a bit more subtle jewelry.  Value $40-60), 
  • Glam Box ($27/month, 2-3 pieces of bolder jewelry.  Value $40-60), 
  • Kids Box ($22/month, 2-3 kid friendly--ages 3+---pieces.  Value $40-60). 
Each box is billed on the first of the month and you receive your box the month AFTER you subscribe (so if you join today, you'll get the March box).

One other little tidbit that I love about this company is that Anel, the "A" in "A&M" is a teacher!  For me, it's really easy to forget to dress stylish in favor of comfort since I'm up on my feet and moving around all day.  A little bit of bling can help turn a drab outfit to fab!

So let me just walk you through what I got:
The package shipped in a manilla envelope, in a nice little box, wrapped in this pretty tissue paper.
All three pieces were in a little bag



But you don't really care about the packaging, do you?  You want to know what I got!


Left:  Sterling Silver Rhinestone Bar Pendant Necklace ($28)
Center:  Square Rhinestone Stud Earrings ($22)
Right:  Silver Geometric Bangles ($12)

First impressions:  
I really like everything in the box.  The bangles are definitely something that I'd choose for myself, and I really like the little ribbon that was wrapped around them.  I guess that was just to hold all of them together, but I really like it, and given the amount of craft supplies I have in the house, I could probably change it out to match my outfit!  

I can see myself wearing the earrings quite a bit, too.  I like that they're a little dressier looking, and because of that, just the earrings could really dress up an outfit.  I could also wear them with a tee and jeans.    

The colors of the necklace are really pretty, and actually go with a lot of my clothes.  But, it's a lot shorter of a chain than I like:
It was almost a choker.  And I don't have a very thick neck.  It was a little uncomfortable.  So, if I were to wear this again, I'd put it on a longer silver chain.  

All in all, I really like the A&M Treasures Whoa Baby! Everyday Box!  Thank you so much for the opportunity to review the treasures.
