Black Silver Threaded Turban (retail price unavailable, but I found a similar style on eBay)
I have been trying to muster the courage to try incorporating more hats into my wardrobe as of late. It has always been a challenge for me due to my big ol’ pumpkin head. Ask my mom! She tells people how she had to get separate hats for toddler me because snowsuit hoods never fit my ample noggin. So, when I saw this Gloria Swanson in Sunset Boulevard-style turban, I was a bit intimidated. The stretchy fabric’s silver threading makes it a standout piece. I could seed this turban pairing well with a flowy, fringed kimono with skinny leg jeans and flats or with a bell-sleeved crushed velvet dress.
Glitzy Spoopy Spider Earrings - Retail Price $1.99
These earrings definitely are creepily glamorous, aren’t they? They aren’t necessarily earrings I would wear on a regular basis, but they are fantastic for Halloween! Sadly, this pair’s quality is a bit questionable. While I was unboxing them, a rhinestone fell off of one of the earrings. I reached out to Pinup In A Pack on the matter and they apologized and promised to send out a new pair. They gave me the option of the black I received, gold, or silver as well. I selected the black replacements. Their great customer service doesn’t go unnoticed with me. I really appreciate their promptness and how they handled this situation.
Retro Black Bead necklace (retail price unavailable, similar style on Etsy)
This plastic bead necklace is a great piece for Halloween costumes, but also for all year round! I was concerned this necklace wouldn’t fit my neck; it did but it is a bit snugger than I would prefer. The clasp was a task to turn to do and undo. It took me a few minutes to get it on and off. A necklace like this is common that it could be easily found at a retail chain like Claire’s or Kohl’s. That being said, I do feel like goes great with the other styles included in this month’s spooky selections.
Verdict: I loved the Halloween theme to this box! I liked the old Hollywood style turban the best; it seemed like the most unique piece in this month’s box. The box cost is $19.99, which makes each item worth over $6 - a reasonable value. I am impressed with the good customer service I received regarding the earrings as well! Any business that is accommodating and willing to assist in matters like this win me over. I am eager to get my replacement earrings and also to see what’s in store for November’s Pinup in a Pack!
