October My Little Box: Diane von Furstenberg Edition


A collaboration between My Little Box* and Diane von Furstenberg initially feels a little odd because their aesthetics are quite different. My Little Box is whimsical & sweet whereas Furstenberg's designs are bold & eye-catching. But I suppose their shared celebration (probably not the right word, I'm not being very articulate today) of women means this perhaps slightly unexpected partnership does make sense. 


  • 'Be the woman you want to be' print
  • Diane von Furstenberg for My Little Box scarf
  • A kiss from Diane lips pin/brooch
  • My Little Beauty Micellar Water
  • Kerastase Hairspray
  • L'Occitane Hand Cream
Honestly? I don't think that this is one of their best boxes, but this is where it all comes down to personal taste. The scarf and the pin just aren't my kind of thing, but I appreciate that a lot of people will absolutely adore them. I'm all micellar-water-ed out, preferring oils to anything else to remove my make up, but I don't think I'll struggle to find a new home for this particular bottle.

The print is lovely, with an inspiring quote and the usual sweet illustrative style that I've come to expect from the talented My Little Box team. My Mum has already pinched the Kerastase hairspray and I'm always happy to have a mini L'Occitane hand cream on hand because they're always lovely.

I don't know. I suppose the box just feels like it's missing something this month and perhaps it's because their previous boxes have been particularly impressive. This isn't a bad box by any means, it's very well curated, with a lot of care put into the little details and it's still the subscription service I would recommend over all others at the moment. I hope they manage to regain their magic again next month.

  1. I would agree with you - the scarf and other pieces included wouldn't be to my taste, but I can imagine others really loving it. I guess that's the risk with beauty boxes, it's still a nice surprise to see what's inside! x

  5. I haven't received my box yet but I think I agree with you, the scarf really isn't my style and it looks like the box is missing something this month. The mini hairspray and hand cream are especially useful this time of year though so it's not lacking the thoughtful touch xx

  6. I have to agree that this does feel like an odd pairing! The print is gorgeous and the scarf is definitely something I'd wear, so I think I'd be pretty happy with this box :)

  11. I have to say I agree with you on this one, but the print is lovely and kind of makes up for it being a bit disappointing :/

  13. I completely agree with you, this months box wasn't to my tastes at all and I didn't think their individual aesthetics complimented each other at all :/

  15. I never really noticed it until you mentioned it, but she is definitely the epitome of loud print and boldness.
