PopSugar CFDA - Special Edition Box

In April PopSugar announced yet another special edition box. This box is a collaboration with the Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA). The price of this box was quite high at $200 but came with a guaranteed value of over $600 and 50% of the proceeds would go to the CFDA Foundation. Like other PopSugar special edition boxes this one sold out quickly even with the high price. 

I have been eagerly awaiting this box.....

Like the other special edition boxes this one came in a nice black box. The writing is in rose gold. 

Diana von Furstenberg book and Apolis + Clare V. Market Bag

Other treasures in the box. 

Close up of the earrings. They are brass so they have some weight to them. 

I think this Marc Jacobs bracelet is gorgeous!

How fun is this Anna Sui lipstick! I love the packaging but I wish the color were different. 

Contents of the PopSugar Special Edition CFDA Box. 

Maiyet Poison Dart Stud Earrings. Value = $395.00 - These earrings are made of brass and 18k gold-plated. They are heavy but  I don't think they will pull too much. 

Anna Sui Lipstick. Value = $30.00 - Love the design of this. I wish the color were different though. Maybe I can trade someone for another color?

Marc by Marc Jacobs Logo Bangle. Value = $80.00 - This bracelet is gorgeous but it's too small for me : (

Milly Nail Polish Set. Value = $36.00

The Woman I Wanted To Be by Diane von Furstenberg. Value = $28.00

Apolis + Clare V. Market Bag Value = $68.00 - This is a great bag! It's super well made with a waterproof lining. I love this bag.

The total value of this CFDA Special Edition Box is $637.00. That is 3 times the price paid! I know it's silly but my favorite thing in the box is the market bag. I have a weakness for bags and this is a great bag. I might even see if I can trade for another one. I also really like the stud earrings which is good since they are the most valuable item in the box. I am shocked that they are so expensive though. I checked out the Maiyet website and they have a $24,000 necklace! I like the Marc Jacobs bangle especially the dark gunmetal color I got but sadly it's too small for me. The nail polish colors aren't exciting but it says it's one coat coverage which I'm a fan of. The book is ok. I may read it eventually but I'm not really into Diane von Furstenberg.

Verdict: This collaboration box was awesome! 

Everyone Loves A Treasure
