What’s your fashion mood this month?

I love shopping.. ✓
I looove surprises ✓
AND I love receiving bulky parcels at my doorstep because it feels like Christmas! ✓

When the mood box from Her Velvet Vase arrived at my home, all of the above fell into place for me. Inside the box contained beauty-related goodies and super cute outfits all planned and styled by the HVV team! You’ll be pleasantly taken aback by just how many items they manage to squeeze into one large box! ;)

So what is the mood box, and how it does it work?

Think along the lines of a monthly beauty subscription box concept, but instead of only cosmetic products, you can expect all things fashion fabulous in the mood box – dresses, tops, skirts, bottoms, accessories, make up and more, sourced out and delivered to your very doorstep by HVV!

Choose from 3 different options of varying values that will best suit your needs & style – I went for Option number 1!

After deciding on Option 1, I had to fill out a little customization form to let HVV know what kind of fashion mood I was in and my size specifications –  to my surprise, the HVV team nailed my style completely. Two separate outfits were customized for me, 1 dress + 1 accessory each.

Here’s how I styled the outfits I got from my mood box:

I wanted something white / red colored with prints, the general theme being sparkly / elegant for my end of year events & festivities… and boom.

Super cute bright looking tube dress coupled with a metallic silver floppy clutch which I totally adore! I love the loud floral prints on this dress!

I was a little worried about not being able to fitt / not really liking the clothes from my mood box at first, but felt relieved when I found out that 1) you can exchange the items from your mood box if they are really not suitable, and 2) you can also specify in the comments section things you specifically do not want. As I’m bottom heavy and prefer flair dresses to emphasize a smaller waist line, I made sure to let HVV know that, and they understood my concerns completely.

My next outfit was a more wearable, everyday kinda sundress you’d find me in regardless of the time of the year.. paired with a big, floppy sunhat to shield me from the sweltering Singapore sun!

This pretty in peach maxi dress with peekaboo sheer details would be my choice for a girly brunch session, a weekend date with my boyfriend or just simply for being out and about in! I prefer to keep my style understated and simple (and practical if I may admit), so this works on many levels for me.

Don’t you think the concept of a surprise mood box would make a great gift for Christmas? It’s like buying a girl new clothes (our favorite thing!!!) without needing to rack your brains to figure out their style. Surprises make the best presents in my opinion.
