introducing: popbasic!

Do any of you subscribe to monthly beauty boxes or even Graze/snack boxes? Subscription boxes are something that have become quite big in the beauty world but have you ever thought of buying a box every month that include a few basic items that can transcend any season? Popbasic are a company that offer this and although they are based in the United States, they ship worldwide... For free!

This month, the Frankie box retails at $78 with the collection consisting of a grey marl long sleeved top, a white leather belt with a rose gold buckle and a polka dot scarf. The grey tee is soft and fits well - I am a big fan of basic long sleeved tees because I like wearing them on placement. I need comfortable basics that can be dressed up when paired with a pencil skirt or a smart pair of tailored trousers and this top fits the bill in that respect. The sleeves are easy to roll up too (sounds trivial but I find that some tops have sleeves that roll down of their own accord - bad because the uniform dress code states that we must be 'bare below the elbows').

The white leather belt can be worn on the waist or on the hip. The scarf wraps around my neck comfortably with seriously soft fabric that feels luxurious against my neck. It is large enough to also be worn wrapped around your shoulders, like a shawl - useful if you're a student who sits in lecture theatres or work in an office that only has two temperatures with one of them being freezing cold.

I like how the box comes with a small postcard that introduces the items in the box and also provides outfit ideas.

Overall, this was a box that was a pleasure to unwrap after a long day at uni - the items will suit everyone and they are all of decent quality. The price may seem a bit steep for those in the UK, especially when you compare them to Primark prices, but looking back at some of the other Popbasic boxes, they do have boxes that may provide better value for money!

Thank you, Madeline from Popbasic for sending me this box to review :)

NB: Although I received these products as review samples, I have reviewed them just as I would have if I had paid for them.
