As some of you might already know, and if you didn't know now you will, I have a thing for monthly subscription boxes. It's like monthly surprise gift to myself. You never know what you'll find inside, and I don't know about you, but I like surprises. How can you not!?
In general I don't do reviews, but when I-Ella contacted me and told me about The List, I couldn't refuse. The List is a monthly subscription program in which they provide you with a personalized gift bag filled with designer goodies and beauty samples.
Jacket - H&M (similar)
Dress - Wren (more description below)
Ring: Tiffany and Co.
The dress will transition nicely from Summer into Fall. Just add tights and a jacket or blazer, flats or even some cute booties and you got yourself a fabulous Fall look.
