These little notes were included in my box this month instead of the usual letter. Since there was no letter, I’ll just explain a bit about how it 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!
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. This might be confusing to you since my styling fee has been waived, but normally this line item would have your styling fee ($49) deducted. In this case, the original retail price for all the items was $296. If I keep everything in the box, my outstanding cost is only $173.60!
JudyBlue White Boyfriend Jeans – Price to keep $65
I recently tried some white pants from another styling box, and I noted at the time how fattening white pants seem to be on me. It’s really strange, but these white jeans are not fattening at all. In fact, they look really summery and kind of flattering. My husband likes them anyway, so these are a keeper!
Tie-Dyed Dolman Top – Price to keep $35
This top is such an easy win for me… I love tie-dye, I love this color, it looks great with the jeans, and it’s nice and oversized. Another keeper!
Gina Louise Original Crochet Collar Dress – Price to keep $65
This is one of Gina Louise’s original designs, and it’s just beautiful. The invoice notes that it is Modcloth inspired, and it definitely fits that aesthetic perfectly. Mint is not a great color on me, but I think I might give it a try.
Wow, this is a first!
White Bling Rhinestone Sandals by Anna – Price to keep $32
I like these sandals a lot, and they really tie everything together nicely! Sadly, I have weird shaped feet, so this type of sandal doesn’t work for me. I have to send these back.
Gold / Crystal Swirl Necklace – Price to keep $20
This necklace is really unique; I don’t have anything like it. It’s also really pretty! I am definitely going to have to keep this!
Verdict: I am still totally loving my subscription to Gina Louise Bling Box! I feel like this month my stylist pushed a little in terms of my comfort zone, but for the most part it was a good thing! Three of the items I received I totally love, and I’m warming up to the dress. The only thing that definitely won’t work are the sandals, but that’s nobody’s fault, really. Keeping three or four of five items is a sure win when it comes to styling boxes!
What do you think of the Gina Louise Bling Box? Are you going to give them a try?
