FANCY BOX: July 2014 [Coco Rocha]

i always look forward to opening my Fancy boxes since you never know what to expect. 
sadly, i was not a big fan this month:
1) Passport Luggage Tag
Passport luggage tag-a luggage tag that's ready to take on the world!
retail value: $10


soo uhm, this is sort of flimsy... and pretty much asking for trouble.
2) Wallpaper City Guide: NYC
Wallpaper* City Guides present a tightly edited, discreetly packaged list of the best a location has to offer the design conscious traveller. Here is a precise, informative, insider’s checklist of all you need to know about the world’s most intoxicating cities.
retail value: $14


this could have been useful when i was actually in NY in May... neat idea but not that interesting to me.
3) Privé Zipper Pouch by Izola
Izola's zipper pouches are 100% cotton and lined with PEVA to keep the contents dry and tidy. Use in the bathroom, for travel, or for your desk to keep all those pencils and pens organized.
retail value: $28


i have plenty of bags i use for traveling but i guess i did not have one that was plastic-y inside so that you can throw a wet swimsuit in there (Google tells me Privé means private). but $28 retail value?! 
4) Universal Travel Adapter by Kikkerland Design
Worldwide compatibility, more than 150 countries. Ultra compact for travel, folds flatter than any other adapter on the market.
retail value: $15


not something i need right now but maybe down the road when i travel to Australia again. or perhaps... Europe!
5) Well Kept Screen Towelettes
Each pack contains 15 pre-moistened towelettes, useful for cleaning a variety of electronics and lenses.
retail value: $13


i've never once been like, ya know what i could really use right now? a screen towelette! 

this month was my last Coco Rocha box. i thought i'd stick around until my birthday month and then decide... unfortunately, this was probably the most disappointing Coco Rocha box i've opened thus far. the items all revolved around a fun theme - traveling - but they were very lackluster.
Fancy boxes are all about sending you goods worth over $80. well this box just made it. the total of the retail value is $80 but that's nowhere near what i think it is worth. i'm thinking more like the $30 range.

i'm going to try my hand with Kelly Rowland next month. but just the one time! and it might be time to finally wash my hands of this.
