I’ve been in zox VIP since about the beginning of February of this year (2021), so not a very long time compared to some of the OGs, unfortunately lol.
Which ZOX started your collection, and what is your most recent piece?
Wow. So many zox. I have 4 full binders of straps and singles (will need to get binder #5 here soon); I have the zox box 13, so many strings (string club), 3 hoodies, a V2 packpack with a bunch of closure and tension straps, a black daily, a couple lanyards, a gold bar, a puzzle, a few pearls and a few imperials.
What’s your favorite ZOX, and why?
My favorite zox at this moment would be “You Will Get Through This.” I got this single at a very low point in my life recently, and the quote on the card got me through a lot of really tough days. I took a picture of the card and had it set as my background on my phone just so I could read it literally any time I picked up my phone. And it truly helped me more than I ever thought was possible.
If you could design your own collection, what would it be?
If I were able to design my own, it would probably be centered around overdose awareness or geared toward recovery. Maybe something with the serenity prayer. My little sister passed away in 2012 due to an overdose, and I have had my own battles with addiction so that is something very close to my heart that I feel would be awesome to design and get out into the world.
What do you love about VIP?
VIP is the one place I can go where I know I’ll feel completely welcome. The people in VIP are so kind, warm, and so, so giving. It amazes me every single day the depths individuals will go for one another here. Zox came into my life when I really needed a daily reminder of certain things, and it’s honestly changed my life. The people here have changed my life. And I’ve made friendships here that I love and cherish every single day. People I have never even met in person treat me like family. It’s honestly so beautiful to see. Recently going through my breakup, I have had so much support here in VIP. I have never been treated so well without expecting something in return. I received so many surprise packages from so many different people wishing me the best and trying to lift my spirits. I couldn’t ask for a better group of people.
What do you love about ZOX?
I first and foremost love the artwork. That’s initially what got me wanting to collect. Specifically Twinkle. I love that I can match them with pretty much anything I’m wearing, and I love all of the sayings on them just as much as the artwork. There’s literally one for any mood you’re in. If you’re just needing something to pick yourself up and make you feel better - grab a ZOX. Lol.
Which ZOX are you planning on acquiring next?
I am currently in the process of finishing my CXII Apparel set. I have 2 left that I need to get and I’ll be finished with that set. But the ones I’m really really wanting to acquire next are the Game Of Thrones related straps. Those are definitely a need! I’m also hoping to get the black star “I think it means I love you” it’s one of my ultimate grails.
