The List, by I-Ella

Hi everyone, I hope you had a great weekend. One highlight from my weekend was when I received my gift package from The List, by l-ELLA. The List is a monthly subscription program where members receive a gift bag of new designer goodies (clothing, handbags, shoes and/or accessories). Also included are various free beauty product samples.  I was offered a chance to review one of their gift bags and was immediately thrilled with their in-depth style profile. It gave me the opportunity to relate my personal style and I couldn't wait for the experience.  I must say, this gift bag nailed my style which is hard to do with my funkiness. Here is how the process works:

1.)  Members choose a gift bag (Starter, $59 (+shipping));  SoHo, $129 (+shipping);  St. Barth's $389 (shipping included))

2.)  Complete their style profile including such information as your age, style (are you Upper East Side Princess or a SoHo Chic), and other information. This process is so in depth, down to your daily skin process to shoe size. They even want a photo that shows your personal style.

3.)  I-ELLA then puts together a fashion gift box of designer items and free product samples. Some designers on the past have included Gorjana-Griffin, Linea Pelle, Sam + Lavi, Kara Ross, Smashbox, Chanel Nail Polish, and many more.

4.)  I was totally surprised by my package in the mail!

My fabulous Wren Brocade Pants and Armour Lipstick

Each gift bag has a theme and mine was selected as 'Sex and the City Style'.

 The personal letter in your gift bag breaks down all of the designer items and their retail value. The gift bag I received was the "Soho" at $129.00 and the value of all of my items was $283.00.Each bag will contain 3 – 5 items with 1 – 2 being featured designer pieces.

 Each item has came individually wrapped and honestly I tried to unwrap them slowly like Christmas, so I could enjoy the moment!

 This this theme is based on Carrie Bradshaw 'Sex in the City' as she is a writer. They sent me a Caroline Gardner Notebook. The theme for next month is 'October Surprise'. Here is the link for next month gift items.

 Other items in my gift bag included my Armour Lip gloss (love, love), Blithe&Bonny soap, and Herban Essentials Lavender Towelette.

Lastly, my most favorite item is the Wren Brocade Pull on Pants that fit me perfectly.  (items that do not fit can be exchanged) 

My favorite part of the gift bag was the quote by Carrie Bradshaw which said, "Don't forget to fall in love with yourself first."

So, if you are interested in getting a special gift bag personally made by your by your own personal stylist then check out this out  http://www.i-ella.com/thelist/.
