The invoice has contact info if I have any questions on my box and shows me as a reoccurring order. It is a pretty standard invoice.

Cotton Paisley Print Scarf Bandana (retail price ranges. I found similar ones at 12 for $11.99 here)

There is something very classic about a paisley print bandana. Just glancing at bandanas like this makes me think of my grandfather who owned a gun shop and was a huge John Wayne fan; Gramps wore bandanas like this around his neck often. I, myself, amassed quite the bandana collection in every color from my local craft store; I used them as hair wraps when I was in college. Isn’t it wild how many memories can be incited from simply looking at a bandana?! Nostalgia aside, because this item is rather common and easy to find, I wasn’t incredibly impressed with this bandana’s inclusion. I will give Pinup in a Pack props though for including such a versatile and classic accessory, though.

Fruit earring set (cost unavailable)

Truth be told, I am a sucker for any kind of fruit designs!  Whether it be on clothing, house ware items, or vintage accessories— I probably am salivating over it. A lot of jewelry accessories focus on cherries and bananas, so I really love that these watermelon earrings were featured in this fruit salad collection. This set also makes me nostalgic for trips to Claire’s as a kid; sifting through racks and racks of earring sets for the perfect one. These are kitschy and youthful, but not necessarily earrings I would wear every day. I wore the watermelon earrings all day at work and I can happily say they did not make my ears itch like some costume jewelry pieces do!

Set of Two Wooden Bangles (price unavailable)

These bangles may be my favorite of the items in my first Pinup in a Pack! First glance at these made me want to hop in a tiger print dress of mine and go out for a night on the town. The wooden material is very light and these bangles could be worn lower on the wrist, but they are big enough they could go up closer to ones’ elbow. These wooden bangles are so versatile that they pair well with an outrageous Saturday night ensemble to a toned-down business casual look for the Monday after at the office. 

Verdict: This is my first Pinup in a Pack and I have to say I am left feeling a bit mixed, which may be due to my high expectations from creeping their Instagram page. For $19.99, I feel that the cost is fair, in part due to the fact that it includes the shipping fees. I hope the next box includes accessories like sunglasses – especially cat eyes or at least something that feels a bit more special and less common and accessible. That all being said, the accessories I did receive pair well and definitely have a retro theme. I am very open and eager to see what my next box will be like.

  1. Nicole, you make everything look so stylish, or rather you are so stylish! I love your clothing reviews because you pick more daring, fun styles, it is very inspiring! 🙂

    • Jann, I am so sorry I am late on responding! Thank you! That means a lot to me!

  2. you are gorgeous, but I’m kinda disappointed in this sub. Nothing exciting and can be found for much cheaper elsewhere.

  3. You’re so gorgeous, Nicole!

    • Awe, Ash! Thank you so much!

  4. I feel like going to Claire’s and paying $4-6 for the earrings, bandanas like that are $1 at Wal-Mart…and I don’t think the bracelets are worth much and they don’t scream pin-up to me. The bandana is the only really classic style accessory and it is so affordable elsewhere. I like your review, this box is just a big no on value though.

    • I agree a good bit on that, C. I am hoping for a better box next month because the ones they had prior looked so adorable and made me want to try them out. Fingers crossed for the September box!

      • Fingers crossed you get something amazing then!

        If you’re into vintage stuff (and I’m not promoting it here just mentioning a sale I found in case this is somehow not supposed to be in comments), I just got myself a new lipstick off of the Besame Cosmetics website and any order gets one of their foundation sticks ($25 usually) for free (won’t show in bag, but anything through 22nd will include one). It’s only one color a pinky light-medium beige, and while I’m porcelain fair I’m going to use it for some gentle contouring probably. Free shipping over $20 too.

      • Also your hair is a little more orange than my natural color but close! Gingers unite!

  5. I love this idea! I would have been annoyed if I received this box too. I don’t even think it’s worth $10.

    • Yeah, the bandanna frustrated the heck out of me because you can get those just about anywhere. I will give them props that it is a classic look, but I am really hoping the next box is a better one!

  6. I love your reviews! When I saw the heading I was SO intrigued,and then I saw what you received. There is another box that delivers a lot more for your money. It’s called the Rockabilly Box.

    • Thank you, Katie! I just checked them out and that looks like a fun box. Plus they have a hair devoted box too! WHOA!

    • Yikes! I just looked up the Rockabilly box and I must have it! Thanks so much for mentioning it…. where has it been all my life?

  7. You look adorable and I love the concept of this sub.

    That being said, I would be disappointed if I got this box. I will keep my eye on this subscription though and hope the next box is better!

    • I agree, Jackie! Looking at their IG I had such higher expectations. The items in their actual store are so cute. I was hoping for some sunglasses and a more unique scarf. I am holding out hopes that the next one will be an improvement!
