This welcome letter was included in my package, along with an information sheet about how the service works. Basically, you pay your styling fee and receive your box full of clothes and accessories. You have three days to decide what you would like to keep and what you want to return. They send a return envelope so you can send back anything you don’t want to keep, and the postage is pre-paid so you don’t have to pay to return things. You’re charged for what you do keep. It’s that simple!
These are my invoices for the package. The retail prices are listed, but as a Bling Box member, I get a special VIP discounted price on the items sent. If I choose to keep everything in the box, I get a 20% discount on the whole thing. And of course, my styling fee is deducted from whatever I decide to keep. In this case, the original retail price for all the items was $442. If I keep everything in the box, my outstanding cost (after the styling fee) is only $207.20! That’s a really deep discount!
New subscribers get a free gift in their first package!
My free gift was this super cool bronze cross necklace. It’s very unique, but it’s not really my style. I think it’s a little too cool for me to wear! Fortunately, I know someone who would love this, so I may end up gifting it.
Rock & Royal Jeans – Price to keep $60
These jeans are also super cool! They are distressed down the front of both legs, but they have a very DIY “I mended these myself” stitching throughout the distressed area to keep them from falling open completely. If I hadn’t just bought about 75 pairs of jeans from subscription boxes, I would totally keep these!
Long Lace Bell Sleeve Top – Price to keep $50
I really should have a piece like this already in my closet, and I’m kind of surprised I don’t. This is very flattering and would look amazing with the jeans and a black cami. The only thing I’m not sure about is the neckline – I prefer my neckline to be more open, so I’m on the fence about this piece.
Halle Black Lace Tunic – Price to keep $60
I am totally keeping this! This is super flattering on, and I’ve never seen anything like it before. It’s slightly sheer except where the embroidery is, and the pattern is funky and awesome. My stylist asked me to send a picture of myself, and I had one handy of myself on stage. (My husband and I are musicians and we play in public occasionally.) This tunic will be awesome to wear on stage because it has fringe on the bottom but not on the sleeves, which definitely interferes with playing. Plus it looks gorgeous!
Multi Kaftan – Price to keep $40
I love kaftans! I’m a little picky about the material, though, but this one is perfect! It’s a nice lightweight cotton. I love all the colors and the fringe, too. This is a keeper for sure! Bring on summer!
Chambray Lace Button-Up by Hayden LA – Price to keep $55
I usually love everything by Hayden LA, but this tunic just doesn’t work for me. I like the idea behind the garment, but I have slope-y shoulders and big arms, and the lace just accentuates that. This piece has to go back, unfortunately.
Chiffon Scarf – Price to keep $18
I love the colors and the pattern of this scarf, plus it’s nice and lightweight for spring. That’s a good price for a nice scarf, too. I’m keeping this!
Aviator Sunglasses – Price to keep $10
I already have at least two different pairs of aviator sunglasses, but I love the gold trim on these! I might have to keep them.
Handmade Charm Bracelet – Price to keep $15
Peace, OM, music… I seriously could not have chosen three more apt charms for myself if I had tried! I love bangles with this kind of opening, too, so I can get my gigantic hands through them. This is definitely a keeper!
Verdict: Clearly I am loving my Gina Louise Bling Box this month! I love that my stylist sent accessories with the clothing, it’s so much more fun that way! My stylist was great at selecting items that really suit me, too. I feel like a lot of thought was put into this package! I think their prices are also very reasonable. I love that they carry a wide range of sizes, too! If you are someone who loves boho fashion and boutique shopping, you will absolutely love the Gina Louise Bling Box!
