This month’s theme is “Boo”. A little sweet, a little scary. Let’s dive in.
BONUS Skulls Enamel Pin – Value $10.00?
I love that Penny + Grace has been including enamel pins as bonus items in their packages. This one has a really cool aesthetic. I like that it’s a little cartoony. Did you notice the sideways eye between the two skulls? Cool! The only problem is that the backing doesn’t go onto the post very far, so the pin feels a little precarious.
Skull and Crossbones Stud Earrings in Gold – Listed Value $12.95
These earrings are the perfect little pop of punk, haha! I like that they’re a cutesy style of skull earrings—more realistic skulls are a little too edgy for my taste. As with most Penny + Grace earrings, these are simple enough to integrate into a ton of different outfits. I’ve worn these a few days in a row now, and they’ve held up pretty well. No tarnishing or anything so far!
Barr Necklace – Listed Value $18.00
This necklace is really minimalist, which I like. It’s the kind of thing that I’d reach for if I needed just a little shine in an outfit. The sides of the bar have a bit of texture about them, so they kind of twinkle, too.
Evil Eye Necklace – Listed Value $22.00
This is the jazziest design I’ve gotten from Penny + Grace so far. Rhinestones? Very cool, Penny + Grace! I’m so used to their very understated, metal-only jewelry that this is a new twist. I like the subtle twinkle of this itty bitty pendant. It’s barely the size of my fingertip, so it doesn’t make a big, blingy impression. Instead, it provides just a smidge of visual interest, but the kind I could see people doing a double-take over. (I’m foreseeing a lot of “Ooh, what’s your necklace?” kinds of questions.)
The Verdict: This Penny + Grace pack was really cute. I’ve noticed that this subscription is starting to send several different charm designs per pack rather than, say, two or more pieces all featuring the skull and crossbones motif. I feel like that betters the chances of me liking at least one of the pieces—and in this case, I liked all three! I feel like the bar necklace is the closest to my typical style, but the subtlety of everything makes it all very wearable. Oh, and the pin? Right up my alley.
To Wrap Up:
Can you still get this box if you sign up today? No. Order between the 1st to 20th of the month to nab that month’s pack. Order between the 20th and the end of the month to get the next month’s pack.
Value Breakdown: The box was $19.99, with an estimated value of $62.95 (if you count the bonus pin). That means that, proportionally, I paid the following for the items inside:
- Pin – $3.18
- Earrings – $4.11
- Bar Necklace – $5.72
- Eye Necklace – $6.99
