Bolzano Purse Club May 2018 Review

After signing up I was sent a questionnaire that asked me about the colors and patterns I prefer, styles and purse shapes that I liked, and any other information I would like the Bolzano team to know!

I am not going to lie, getting this purse made me feel like I was back in the early 2000’s. The way the top bunches up to look like ruffles was the epitome of style back then, but I am not really feeling it today. However, I do appreciate the amount of space the purse actually has. There are three separate compartments inside the purse (one on either side of the zipper compartment, and then on each end of the purse there is a utility pocket with the signature Bolzano lock and key hardware. The cowhide leather is buttery soft, and I appreciate the classic black color.

Bonus Mother’s Day Gift!

I am not even sure what to call this, as I have never seen anything like it before and I cannot find it on the website. That being said, I am kinda digging it! This is like a tiny wallet that you can hold by the handle or slip over your wrist for events when you can’t bring a purse. I can’t fit my phone in this, but it can fit cash, cards, and a lipgloss comfortably. I think this is an awesome bonus gift to include!

Verdict: The more I look at this purse, the more it grows on me. This definitely is not a purse I would ever consider to be my style, but I love how much space it actually has considering how small it looks. The beauty of this subscription is that you get a new leather handbag every month, so it probably won’t be a perfect fit every time. That being said, the quality of the leather is lovely, and I look forward to seeing what next month brings.

To Wrap Up:

Can you still get this box if you sign up today? You can definitely still sign up, but what bag you get depends on what you enter into your style profile and what the stylists pick for you. 

Coupon – Now through 6/8, get your subscription for $19.95 a month! No coupon required – just link here.

Value Breakdown: Bolzano costs $45.00 per month, but I received a leather handbag that retails for $118, plus a bonus bag. What a deal!

  1. I just got my leather purse a couple of days ago and I love it. It is a messenger bag. Black leather with a silver flap. I expect to get some that aren’t totally my style but if that happens I can always gift it. Their customer service has been great. I couldn’t sign up online so I called and it was no problem. Also this is a new sub so I am willing to stick with them as they iron out the wrinkles for 19.99 what a great deal.

  2. I’m also curious like another commenter, IS IT THEIR BRAND ONLY???????

    • Yes their brand only.

  3. I got the coolest purse. It’s dark grey metallic with a dark Navy metallic flap and the strap has 3 big metal rings on one side and one on the other and is grey metallic. There’s an outside pocket perfect for my phone. This is not an everyday purse. It’s too small!!

  4. I asked for large bags, and what I’m getting looks like a child’s purse. I totally do not understand why they asked what we like if they are not going to curate to our profiles.

    Also, when I told them I didn’t like the color or size of my bag, they sent me a replacement- same teeny size, but in boring black instead of tan. I do not wear tan family shades in anything, but do sometimes wear nude heels, of course.
    The tan thing had burnished brass all over it. Looked like they were trying to have a Medieval style crossbody bag, LOLOL.

    I do not like that the reviews have displayed much larger bags than what I’m being sent.

  5. the bags reviewed always look soo cute. but of course the one I get in the mail is boring and ordinary. bolzano, please just let me pick, eh?

  6. If I order the one month for $19.95 will each subsequent month also before $19.95

    • Clarification: will each month after be for $19.95 also?

    • Yes it will!

  7. Love the purse and wristlet!

  8. Wow, even before seeing your opinion, I also thought that it looked very early 2000s!

  9. Do they send you other brands or just theirs?

    • from what i can tell it’s pretty much just theirs

  10. That tiny wrist wallet is adorbs. Just think if you keep the purse for a while it will be stylish again in a retro way 😉 Anyways, I’ve been toying with getting this sub – Can’t make up my mind. Ahh

  11. I am digging the wrist wallet.
