I hated to spend the money but I did like some of the items in the box last year. The items I didn't want I traded or sold so it still worked out.
The special edition boxes come in a sturdy box than can be reused.

illesteva sunglasses from Italy
Derek Lam 10 Crosby Fragrance
Swell water bottle and dry shampoo
Contents of the PopSugar Special Edition CFDA Box.
Lemlem Split Cover Up. Value = $198.00 - this says one size but sadly it doesn't fit us curvy large busted gals. I hope I can trade or sell this.
3.1 Phillip Lim 10th Anniversary Limited Edition 31 Nano Second Pouch. Value = $195.00 - I love this little bag. I should've taken a side view but it's a perfect size for throwing in a tote or when you don't want to carry a purse.
S'well Shadow Water Bottle. Value = $32.00 - I love the s'well bottles! They seriously keep liquid cold for hours! My only complaint is that it's not big enough.
Derek Lam 10 Crosby Frangrace Collection Gift Set. Value = $95.00 - how fun is this? I smelled each one of these and in the bottle they smell great.
Elizabeth and James Nirvana Dry Shampoo. Value = $28.00 - I don't use dry shampoo but I know I will be able to trade this.
Illesteva Leonard Sunglasses. Value = $177.00 - These sunglasses are packaged so luxuriously. The case and nice and even the cloth bag. Unfortunately there is no way I pull off round mirrored sunglasses.
The total value of this CFDA Special Edition Box is $725.00. There are three items in the box I will use for sure. Those items add up to $322 so while not a fantastic deal it's still a deal. If I can trade or sell the other items then it will be perfect. I really wish the cover up would've fit. I have a couple of beach trips planned and I could use a new cover up.
Verdict: This collaboration box was awesome!
