Lux Retail Therapy: Subscription Based Shopping
New York-based start-up Birchbox kicked off the trend of subscription based shopping services that (shop for you) in 2010 by sending women tailored cosmetics samples. Now, with dozens and dozens of new sites that cater to your shopping needs... you can get anything under the moon right to your door step! Here are a few awesome subscriptions that can cost as little as $10 or top $100 a month for luxury items.

The Ms. Collection - Start by filling out your style profile. Each month, The Ms. Collection’s stylists will curate a box of 3-5 clothing items and accessories just for you (either a full outfit or a mix of separate pieces).
