Gina Louise Bling Box Subscription Box Review + Coupon – May 2016
Gina Louise is an emerging boho fashion and accessory brand that recently began offering a monthly subscription styling service called the “Bling Box.” I love all things boho, so I was excited to have the opportunity to try them out!
Gina Louise kindly sent us this box to review. (Check out our review process post to learn more about how we review boxes.)

This letter was included in my package with important reminders of how this 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! She was also kind enough to wish me a Happy Mothers’ Day!
This is my invoice 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 $488. If I keep everything in the box, my outstanding cost (after the styling fee) is only $245.60! That’s a really deep discount!
Patchwork Lace Sleeve Denim Jacket – Price to keep $125
Have you ever seen such a unique denim jacket? Gina Louise spoke of this in her letter (above) – this is one of her unique designs! It’s one-of-a-kind! I love it! I can’t imagine any other circumstances under which I would buy a jacket in May, but I am definitely keeping this jacket!
Style & Co. Linen Pants – Price to keep $52
I’m kind of on the fence about these pants. I don’t usually wear light colored pants because I have messy children and pets. These are really nice and lightweight, though, with a good flow, and they are actually kind of flattering for light colored pants. They’re also petite length, so they are a good length for summer (I typically fall in between petite and regular). I can’t decide!
NY Collection Sparkle Top – Price to keep $45
Another conundrum! I don’t usually wear beaded tops because I feel like they belong to a more mature generation. But, this top is really flattering, and the stones actually look kind of cool.
Woven Kimono – Price to keep $54
I’m not sure why this is listed as a kimono, it’s a blouse, but it doesn’t matter. I love it! This is a keeper for sure!
Handmade Guitar Pic / Peace Earrings – Price to keep $18
Oh my gosh I love these earrings! These are totally my style, and I can’t believe they are handmade! I am keeping these, too!
Gunmtal / Gold Austrian Crystal encrusted Necklace – Price to keep $37.50
Wow, this necklace is beautiful, and it’s got a good weight to it. It’s also totally my style. Another keeper!
Verdict: I am totally loving my subscription to Gina Louise Bling Box! I can’t believe how quickly my stylist grasped my style and embraced it completely. I absolutely love four of the six items she sent this month, and the other two I like but don’t know if I can commit. That’s a fantastic win rate on a styling box, in my opinion!
What do you think of the Gina Louise Bling Box? Are you going to give them a try?
