Fashion // Style by Portobello – Vintage Fashion Subscription Box

September 25, 2015

I think everyone is familiar with the concept of beauty boxes these days, there are now so many types and brands to choose from (I reviewed a nail polish one yesterday!) However I’d never heard of a monthly fashion box before, and certainly not a vintage fashion subscription box...until now! Style by Portobello* got in touch to tell me about their monthly vintage fashion box which delivers a selection of hand picked vintage accessories right to your door, bringing the delights of Portobello Market to you, no matter where you live.


Style by Portobello is the first service of its kind, and is a really great initiative for those who love one off vintage pieces but  aren’t able to get to the famous Portobello Market, or perhaps don’t want to root around to find the perfect accessory. Style by Portobello does all the hard work for you! For £35 a month you will receive three or four hand selected items which you know won’t be seen on every Tara, Dee or Sally walking down the street. 


In my box I received three gorgeous accessories – a leather bag, bejewelled brooch and black bead necklace. The bag is navy leather with a delicate silver chain strap and silver hardware detail on the front. It’s a really great size for going out and will be perfect for the Christmas party season.



The black bead necklace is fairly classic, which on one hand makes it a little non-descript but on the other means it will pretty much suit anyone’s style and taste, which is just what you need in a subscription box service.



The brooch is absolutely gorgeous! The colours are stunning and I’ve been loving brightening up my boring black work blazers with it. My grandmother used to wear really similar pieces so it’s really nice to have something like it myself.


I really loved trying out the Style by Portobello box. I don’t own many vintage pieces and the monthly service is a great way to expand my collection. I really like that all three items are super wearable and I think would suit most people’s style. While it’s a bit of a gamble signing up to receive surprise items it certainly is fun and you know you’ll be getting hand picked one-off pieces which is always nice!

Would you like a mystery fashion box, or would you prefer to choose your own treasures?

    It seems like an interesting concept, but i would rather try and face the crowds at the market and choose what things I really like. But it seems you were lucky with your box! Not sure I would be willing to risk 35 pounds…
