You’ve Got Red on You: A Loot Wear Review

Last month’s “Horror” themed Loot Wear subscriptions came with terrifyingly cool swag, and the debut of a brand new subscription geared towards men: undies! Here’s a breakdown of what each subscription came with:

  • Wearable: Alien
  • Loot Tees: Shaun of the Dead
  • Loot for Her: Edward Scissorhands Raglan
  • Socks: The Nightmare Before Christmas & The Walking Dead
  • Undies: The Walking Dead

I tossed my Alien wearable and Walking Dead socks in my laundry basket since I forgot to take pictures of each before wearing them. Whoops! However, you can get a better view of them in my unpacking video (at the very top of this post). I did style both the Loot Tee and the Loot For Her tops, so you can take a looksie at my Loot Wear ensembles and also my thoughts on them and the Nightmare Before Christmas socks and Walking Dead undies. 😀

Loot Tee:

I’m not one for scary things, but Shaun of the Dead is one of my favorite movies! When I found out there was going to be a Shaun of the Dead t-shirt for October’s Loot Wear subscription, I totally fangirled 😀 While I was a pretty disappointed I was sent a unisex shirt instead of the women’s size like last time, I still really dig the tee. I love how it incorporates Shaun and Ed’s respective weapons for the zombie outbreak, and also the subtle vinyl record.

Loot For Her:

This raglan’s material feels so much softer and cozier than the Princess Bride or Archer ones they released previously for the wearble subscription. Unfortunately they sent me a size M when I’m a XL/XXL, but it still fit me! It definitley would’ve been a lot more comfortable had it been my proper size. Another thing I like about the raglan is the design. You can’t really tell in my outfit picture since my boobs warp the design a little (#BigBoobieProblems), but Edward’s hands are shaped like a heart. That along with the quote from the movie is cute and heartbreaking all at once!

Socks:

Like I mentioned before, I forgot to take a picture of my Walking Dead socks before wearing them, so they’re not pictured here. However, I will say that I love them! Every time there’s a Walking Dead item, I always say that I’m not into that franchise, but damn if Loot Wear doesn’t always come out with cool wearbles and accessories for them! The maroon socks feature whit silhouettes of weapons that I’m assuming the characters of the show use to fight against the walkers (is that what the zombies are called in that show?), including Lucille, Neegan’s barbed wire baseball bat. <– I only know that because everyone and their mother have posted stuff about him since the latest season premiered. Also Jeffrey Dean Morgan is the kind of fine you don’t spell correctly: fiioooone!

EDIT: OMG. I was so busy thinking about how fiooone Jeffrey Dean Morgan is, I forgot to talk about how much I loved the Oogie Boogie and Jack Skellington socks that the socks subscription came with! I love the design on the socks with Oogie Boogie hovering over and unbeknownst looking Jack. The design also has a bit of a black light poster feel to them. And how cute is Jack holding that heart?! I thought the was “Horror,” not Kawaii Macabre!

Undies:

As you can see in my unpacking video, I was pretty surprised to see Loot Wear also included these Walking Dead chonies for dudes. They’re boxer briefs and the material is really nice and soft. I tried them on over my opaque nylons and you know what? They’re actually perfect to wear underneath skirts or dresses to help keep your nylons in place! I told my friend about them and they said, “You can stick stuff in the slot too!” And I was like da fuq are you guys talking about? Then it dawned on me and I thought, 1. there isn’t a slot for that, and 2. WHY WOULD I STICK THINGS IN THERE? That’s what a bra is for!

I am extremely excited for the month of October’s Loot Wear items because the theme is “Magical” and will have items from Harry Potter, Doctor Strange, Kingdom Hearts, and Adventure Time!!! Here’s a breakdown of what franchises will be featured for each subscription:

  • Socks: Harry Potter and Doctor Strange
  • Wearable: Harry Potter
  • Loot For Her: Kingdom Hearts (it’s supposed to be a knitted item)
  • Loot Tee: Doctor Strange
  • Undies: Adventure Time

Rocksbox Review

If you’re super into fancy baubles like me, you might like Rocksbox! If you’re not familiar, Rocksbox is a jewelry subscription service that loans 3 pieces of jewelry by designers such as Kendra Scott, Loren Hope, Wanderlust + Co, etc. It’s kind of like Netflix, but for jewelry! Everything comes in a fancy little box, and they conveniently include a return label for when you’re all done to ship it back. If you happen to fall in love with any of the pieces they send you, you can buy it for a discounted price too. And BTW, each box contains at least $200 worth of bling!

You might be asking, “But, Nina. How do they determine what kind of jewelry you get? Do they just send random pieces, have a set design to send with every box, or whuuut?” So lemme tell you! When you sign up for Rocksbox and become a “Shine Insider,” you take a survey so they can figure what you’re into style-wise and then you get to create a wish list. Once your wish list is created, a Rocksbox stylist will curate a box for you based on the pieces you chose and voila! 3 out of however many pieces you chose will magically appear at your doorstep! Or mailbox…. or, y’know, wherever you happen to pick up your mail.

And you’re not limited to just one box a month! Once you send back the first box you get, they’ll put together another one for you once they receive it.

In case you’re wondering, Rocksbox is $19 a month. But lucky for you, I have a special coupon code so you can get your first month for free!! Just use code CHEZFANCYPANTSXOXO when you sign up. ☺

For my first Rocksbox, I received a gunmetal bib necklace by Wanderlust + Co, a bracelet by Loren Hope, and rose quartz earrings by Kendra Scott. I thought all the jewelry was super fab, particularly the bib, and I had a lot of fun finding outfits to wear with them. As for purchasing any of them? I wasn’t totally 100% in love with any of the items and even with the discount that Shine Insider’s get, it’s still kinda expensive. The Loren Hope bracelet retails for $78, but the discount only saves you $8.

I think that the quality of the jewelry is top notch compared to some of the stuff I have from Claire’s and whatnot, so if you’re into investing in pieces this might be the perfect subscription box service for you. It’s perfect even if you just want to try things on for the fun of it! I’m trying Rocksbox out for the latter, because who doesn’t to love to play dress-up?


(check out the blog again tomorrow for more of this outfit I’m wearing!)

Don’t forget, using the code CHEZFANCYPANTSXOXO will get you a whole month of Rocksbox for free!

cheers
