Pinup in a Pack February 2018 Review

Baby Pink Heart Shaped Cat Eye Sunglasses (Retail Value Unavailable, similar found here)
My favorite holidays are Halloween and Valentine’s Day, so I was excited to see so many sweetheart themed pieces in this Pinup In a Pack! I always get post-holiday pumped to see the rows of heart shaped candies and valentines whether I am single or have a love (shout out to my awesome boyfriend for taking the pics in this review, btw). These soft pink sunglasses are the perfect marriage of two things I love: cat eye shaped glasses and hearts! These specs make the typical Lolita heart shaped glasses seem far less sassy in comparison. The glasses are pretty solid and are well made for a novelty accessory. I opted to style these like a good bad, not evil kind of girl would: with my red, faux leather jacket and leopard print mini-skirt, of course! These sunglasses will be able to be worn all year too, especially in the summer poolside in your favorite swimsuit!
Silver Heart Cloud Earrings (Retail Value Unavailable, similar found here)
This earring set reminds me of many trips to The Icing and Claire’s as a teen. There was always a sea like rack of novelty earring sets up front next to a merchandise display for whatever boy band was popular that month. These button earrings are definitely a blast from the past! I also appreciate that the earrings come in three different sizes. If you have more than one ear piercing in your ears you could wear multiple pairs at a time for an adorable look. These earrings are rather light and not terribly high quality, but they are rather cute.
You Said You Would Always Bring Me Flowers Scarf (Retail Value Unavailable, similar found here)
Who needs a bouquet of flowers when you can wear a scarf with them on it always, am I right? This scarf is made of a silky satin material and also a mesh, see-through fabric as well. It is long enough that you can tie it on your neck, bag, or in your hair which makes it an immensely versatile and classic accessory. I decided to style the scarf in two of the three ways mentioned to show its adaptability with this single ensemble. Imagine how this piece would look with a pastel shift dress and flats on a spring day or with a button down dress shirt, slacks, cardigan, and heels at the office!
Verdict: I am a sucker for a great theme and enjoyed the thoughtful Valentine’s Day pieces selected for the February Pinup In a Pack box. My favorite item this month far and away was the heart shaped cat eye sunglasses. The scarf and earrings are precious, but they were not terribly high quality items. Overall, I enjoyed this month’s box and enjoyed wearing some of the pieces I received on Valentine’s Day!
To Wrap Up:
Can you still get this box if you sign up today? No, the February box is not available, but you can find similar pieces at Pinup In a Pack. Also, you can sign up for the March box now!
Value Breakdown: This box is $19.99 and that includes free shipping. Three items are included in each box making their estimated value around $6.66 each. I found a similar pair of sunglasses for $3.95, earrings at $2.45, and scarf for $1.98 on eBay. Those three items total $8.38 which means I paid $11.61 more for my Pinup In a Pack box! Do keep in mind the similar pieces are not exactly like the ones I received, especially the earrings which were a smaller stud style than what was included in this month’s box.
