Coco Rocha Fancy Box: First Box


Fancy Boxes didn't exactly strike my fancy the first time around. If you remember as I do, I ordered the first ever Fancy Box and was pretty disappointed. It was an assortment of products that didn't really strike me in any way. They made good gifts though. I knew I was waiting for Fancy to come out with something else. Then the curators started lining up! Ashton Kutcher, Pink, Verbal (a DJ I think?) and then the one that I was waiting for came: Coco Rocha! I'm a fan of hers. I think its cool she's a Canadian and a modeling force to be reckoned with. She's been on numerous mag covers and designer runways. And now she's a Fancy Box Curator! I jumped at the chance of signing up! I waited for Fancy to put out a coupon code for a decent discount on the Fancy subscriptions and one came out for $25 off your first box. I jumped on it. They sent out an email saying that the box was shipping late. And it arrived almost out of the blue today!


The box came with its own trading cards! Just kidding. That's what they remind me of. They are the product cards. Kinda cute, eh?


 From left to right:

American Apparel Opaque Over The Knee Socks: I think these would be cute with a skirt or for the days I don't shave my legs!

The Little Dictionary of Fashion by Christian Dior: I saw this on Fancy and wondered what it was and how a great read it might be. Now I don't have to wonder! Its got just about every fashion related word in it right down to even colours, plus some of Dior's personal thoughts and experiences.

China Glaze Nail Polishes in Sun Worshipper and Concrete Catwalk: Hurray! China Glaze is always a welcomed sight.



Cool Jewels Ice Cube Tray: Really cute. Now my drinks can be blingy? Hehe

Spike Chain Bracelet: I don't own anything like this but I have a great leather cuff that this will go great with.

L'Occitane Shea Butter Hand Cream

Overall, I really liked this box. I am super excited for the next one.  The cost is going to be $56/month. Pretty steep but I think I will enjoy getting this Fancy Box! Check out The Fancy here.

And a shameless plug: Beautiful Onyx & Mick now has a FB Page! Please visit and like! And I will be doing a special Canada only giveaway to celebrate with all my Canadian Lovelies. Stay tuned!

  1. It's a great box with many different things ! But it's a little bit too expensive for me...

  2. Hi! The shipping to Canada is steep but since the box value is around $80 it's still worth it... my question for you is did you have to pay any taxes/fees for customs import? Things valued $20 or less is exempt but I've held off on ordering this one and some other higher value ones because I don't want to get dinged at the border.

    1. I emailed customer service before I signed up about this very issue and they assured me I would not get charged duty as per their agreement with Fed-Ex. And should I get charged, all I have to do is let them know and they will refund me in full. Hope this helps!
