PopSugar Special Edition Resort Box

Recommended Posts

Anyone who is getting a replacement bag looking to unload their slightly damaged one on the cheap? or trade? lemme know

 

 

 

edit: nevermind, I found one on eBay.  I expected these to go for a lot more considering its supposed to be a $280 clutch/pouch.

I think I'm going to send them an email. I know mine isn't the worst but it's so disappointing and looks like an arts and crafts project and rushed that I'm bringing this to their attention. Even if nothing is done to benefit me, maybe they will do a better job next time.

I plan to immediately shower so I can test out the towel, body wash, and face mist, and am planning tomorrow's outfit around the bracelets.  WOOHOO!!!                
 

I love the body wash (tropical pineapple-coconut) and spray!!  Hope you like your box, too!

I was thinking about doing that as well (cutting around myself). But, the tip of the leaf on one side was cut off with mine .. and I don't know if I'd be able to cut closer to the stitching without making it worse?

Anyways, I wrote them an email about the lavender color .. it's simply not a navy/navy clutch and it looks weird being like that on just one side. So, I'm hoping I can exchange it. I doubt they'd just send out an additional one without asking for a return of the one we already got.

 

I've never complained to them about anything either and have gotten most of the LE and regular boxes. So far, there were only minor issues. Right now, the shopping bag of my fall LE edition is coming apart at one side .. which is disappointing after just 6 months (though I do use it frequently). But, that's certainly not PS fault as it was in perfect condition when I got it. Otherwise, there was never anything that would make me contact them. Never any missing items or problem with leaks or anything .. really. Which is why until this box, I've always been very happy with them.

 

The socialbliss boxes don't appeal to me at all for some reason. Not my style I guess.

700 I clipped a bracelet I got from Anthro on my clutch and I think it takes it up a notch. I'm wearing a blue dress to a wedding next month and I think I this will be perfect. I love everything in this box! Did you see the body wash can be used as SHAMPOO? I'm about to try that tomorrow! I'm sad it took forever to arrive but overall I'm pleased. I ordered two boxes so have some lovely duplicates that I may it may not gift. ;)

This is the reply I got from customer service yesterday about my clutch:

 

Thanks for reaching out and we apologize that you received a damaged R.B. of McD Clutch! We are currently working with the vendor in order to send you a replacement! We will reach back out shortly once a resolution is made! Thank you for your patience!

Best,

POPSUGAR Support

 

Hmm...I hope they get back to me soon, especially since other people seem to be getting their replacements shipped already.  I'm totally fine with getting the all navy clutch.  I just hope they are going to send one to me!

That looks really good!

Not to be a Debbie downer but I suspect the replacements of the clutch will have similar issues, it seems to be a widespread issue not just a few damaged clutches. I got the all blue one and same issues, I don't think I will even bother....sigh

Maybe now that the boxes are already shipped they won't be so rushed.  I suspect they were rushing to meet a deadline they couldn't make, and that's why lots of the boxes were late.  Also, hopefully now Popsugar will look them over more before mailing the replacements out!

That looks beautiful! I love the clutch too. I ordered the bicycle chain from the company and I think it will be a great addition. I feel bad for the people who has issues with their clutches, but mine looks very nice, so hopefully the replacements will be better. It would have been even better if they had included the chain and lined it, but I don't mind it the way it is. It definitely has a handmade quality to it. reminds me of a lot of items I see at Anthropologie, Urban Outfitters or the boutique shops that sell indie designs. It kind of reminds me of my Clare Vivier clutch.

 

The towel is AMAZING! I almost wish I had ordered two boxes so I would have another. It is bigger, softer and way prettier than I had anticipated.

 

I love the face mist. I am a lover of face mists in general and this one is particularly luxe, feels nice on the skin and smells lovey.

 

The Lav and eyeliner are nice touches. I didn't really need more beauty items and I wish they had only included maybe one or two instead of three, but they are all very nice and well thought out.

 

The bracelets - WOW. Love them, love them, love them. I traded for an extra set and they look incredible double stacked. I think I'll be wearing them all summer long.

 

The candy - what a perfect addition. We always get taffy when we go to the Oregon coast, so this was fitting.

 

Overall, the box was a hit for me. My April box came today too, and I almost didn't know which one to open first! I was so excited I couldn't wait to get home and opened them both in my car..haha. I'm hoping that Popsugar keeps up the quality of the monthly boxes. I think that last two have been fantastic.

I had no intention of complaining it wasn't that distracting, but while I was playing around with it in front of the mirror I noticed that the exposed zipper snagged on my ikart scarf! If I had been anywhere not directly looking at myself, that scarf would be ruined. :( I recommend playing around with it so you know what to expect. ETA: It wasn't my ikart scarf that it snagged on, it was another light weight scarf. I forgot I tried on both.

I agree. They are sending me a replacement, but I'm not really expecting much of an improvement regarding the zipper. If it's just the pull, I can cut it off and use something else .. But, I was truly bothered by the difference in the leather color .. it's the first thing I noticed when taking the clutch out of ours wrapping. So, as long as I'm getting a true all navy one or navy/tan I'm going to be very happy.

I got an email from PS today saying they'd send a replacement but didn't mention if it were the all blue or the two-toned clutch or how long it'd take. As someone else mentioned, I am hoping that now that the boxes have shipped, perhaps they will do a better job constructing the clutch and send a decent one...

I got an email too and they said they would be all Navy.

I'm also supposed to be receiving a replacement and I agree with all of the above comments. They didn't mention what cold the replacement would be but I'm impressed with their customer service and looking forward to the replacement.

LOVE the towel  Oh my goodness is it soft.

 

Because there were issues with the clutch I decided to check the items in the other box I was going to gift.  Good thing I did.  The second clutch puckers in places.  I decided I should check all the items.  Good thing I did.  The one gold bracelet with the three stones has a tiny chunk out of one of the stones.  I feel bad asking Popsugar for replacements.

I received the twins of your boxes (quads?). I am amazed at the poor quality of these clutches. It looks like they were hand stitched by a drunk. Both of mine have two different leathers on them, so the front looks different from the back. Lettering is already rubbing off, zippers don't close, tabs on the zipper aren't evenly finished, side seams don't line up. And one of my bracelets has the same stone with a chunk missing. I am shocked that these clutches came from a high-end designer. When I took a few semesters of fashion design in undergrad I wouldn't have been allowed to turn something in that shoddily made for my first project.

 

These boxes plus the leaking hand soap in my April one have made up my mind about canceling PS. It has had such a steep drop in quality since November (Michael Stars scarf) and with Social Bliss destroying PS in every regard I'm going to stick with them and save ~40$/month.

I don't think I'll purchase a PS Special Edition box again.  I did like everything, but the delay and the cheaply made clutch, made it not all that worth it.  I do think the value was good.  But, I'd rather just buy the few items that I really like once the box comes out (because ladies are always selling and trading afterward).  I'm totally wary of "made just for Pop Sugar/special edition" items like the clutch now.  Seems like it's such a gamble on what the final product is going to look like. Obviously, these "special" clutches for us are a major step down from what RB of McD usually make.

Wow, that's not even what I'd call a second in quality. So sorry you recieved what is surely something that should have ended up in the round file (trash). I am shocked. I think we all signed up for this box with just a bit more expectations than a regular PopSugar box. I really enjoyed March's box and am looking forward to Aprils (if it ever gets out of the clutches of the mail system :). I am supposed to finally get my resort box tomorrow. And I really think that the March and April boxes seem to have better quality, curation, overall usability and enjoyability than this resort box does. I feel saddened that I paid well over twice as much for this "special" box. For what began as a special treat for ourselves or a friend has turned into a headache for so many.

The clutch is a dud. Is it even worth bothering for a replacement? I really love everything else though. I washed my hair with the body wash and it's fantastic. I love that I have 2 towels and 2 sets of bracelets to stack. And that face mist rules. I'll be using that in Vegas soon enough. Not to mention the taffy! Sheesh! I may actually seek that one out to repurchase!

I'm getting a replacement clutch from PS in navy--I'm happy with the resolution.

 

I feel like overall sisco berluti (who normally make more expensive bracelets) did a better job for this PS box than RB of McD, who sacrificed quality to get their name out there. A simple, well-made, all-linen navy clutch might have been a smarter bet if they wanted to cut costs on materials...imo.

Oh I am so sorry with your experience at PS.  So frustrating to have not have PS check the quality of the items before they were sent.  I am surprised to that the designer would have ok'd these clutches to be sent out.  Have you contacted PS?  They are really good about replacing items.  One of my boxes is for me and I will never use the clutch in the way it is supposed to be used so I only asked to replace one of them.  Looking at it again it had the two different colors on the leather too.  Having these defective clutches does take away from the rest of the box.  I really love the towels.  So your twins (quadruplet) set is awesome.  Do you like anything in the box?

 

I do think that Social Bliss is great.  Loving the curation of their boxes.  And with the last bag they gave the offer to send a strap for the purse.  And it was sent out pretty quick.

This is my bag. I was one of the first to receive my box.

The zipper doesn't close all the way and the right side isn't sewn so it lays flat. It puckers so when I put it  down on a flat surface and try to smooth it down, it pulls in and up making the bag look weird and cheap. I also think I have two different types of leather. The front with the letters is the "nicer" softer leather. The back piece is harder and pebbled.  There is also ink just outside of the seams.

Don't even get me started on not having a liner!!!! 

A good friend of mine has a "real" #2 from this company. The bag is AMAZING.  It's beautiful. The leather is supple and had not a single mark on it when she received it. The "real" thing is truly a work of art with fine craftsmanship.  Sadly, these aren't even close to what the real one is like.

Have any of you contacted R.B of McD about the bag?  I wonder what they have to say about it.  I know you would need to go to popsugar for a replacement but the manufacturer might have some answers?

The product is a sterile solution that should be applied externally, treating them with the growth lines of the upper eyelashes and eyebrows.  Perfect eyelashes complete the look of your eyes; they add beauty to you and make you look attractive. Fuller eyelashes not only define your eyes but also sharpen your facial features. Eyes with long lashes look bigger and brighter. Whatever might be your skin’s complexion, your sharp features make you glow even in your dark skin color. The cosmetic market has a wide variety of eyelashes of different colors, length, density, and curvy ones etc. which you can wear with ease. But are these fake eyelashes are much being easier to apply or they are actually hassled. Putting fake eyelashes is a tough task and make the process troublesome is to make them intact for a long duration, controlling your hands to not to touch them. Using fake eyelashes is a temporary solution; it does not give you a natural look.
