Subscription Box Insanity: Haute Box (Apr. ’15)

Haute Box is here!

Haute Box is here!

One of the habits I’ve been trying to cultivate is that of putting more effort into connecting with loved ones and showing them in big ways and small that I’m thinking of them and care. So when I saw a free shipping discount for an artisan card subscription, I decided that this might be the incentive I needed to make some good on that thought!

Today’s review is for a boutique card subscription called Haute Box by Haute Papier. Haute Papier is a small business (female-owned!) focused on purveying fine paper goods. According to the website, “each quarter you’ll receive a fabulous box filled with Haute Papier goodies delivered straight to your door!” As I do have a bit of a glut of mass-produced note cards, a box of true stationery goods every quarter sounds like a wonderful bit of luxury to share with my loved ones.

I had been getting notices for awhile for the Julep Maven box. I finally decided to bite, though I’m not a nail polish fanatic.

Now on to this month’s box:

Stitch Fix was actually one of my first subscription box services. I still love it, but I am both very picky about my clothing, and also happen to have a ton of clothes in general. So I now only receive a “fix” every other month. This review is of my January fix. (See my other Stitch Fix reviews here.)

For this month’s fix I opted to be completely surprised. So I’m looking forward to seeing what my stylist has in store for me.

For those who have very sparse closets, this is definitely a service I recommend as it seems like Stitch Fix maintains quite an extensive collection of items. For the completely fashion-clueless, there are even style cards (see the picture to the left) that show you how to wear various items in each fix!
