Bolzano Purse and Accessories Club July 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!

Alisse Large Tote in Black,

Alisse Large Tote in Black - Retail Value $250 (member price $90)

I was so excited to see this as my purse for July! I prefer purses that have room for me to fill with unnecessary junk, and I also prefer purses with long shoulder straps. This fits the bill perfectly! I could use this as my purse for school, as it easily fits my 13-inch computer and it is roomy enough to also fit a textbook and some notebooks. I love the black leather with the silver details, especially with the chain shoulder strap. This also has the signature Bolzano working lock and key hardware and is made from cowhide leather, and this month is the first time my bag has arrived in a dust bag. I will be getting a lot of use out of this purse!

The accessories were packaged separately in this little bag and paper holder.

Bolzano Necklace

Accessories are a new product lineup for Bolzano, so I couldn’t find the jewelry I received online. This necklace features two interlocked hoops, with the silver tone hoop embedded with genuine Swarovski crystals and the gold hoop engraved with the phrase “Where there is love there is life.“ I like that this packs some sparkle while still being classic, but I will need to find a different chain to put this on as the current chain is too short for me to wear comfortably.

Bolzano Bracelet

Bolzano Bracelet

This silver metal corded bracelet features gold accents, and it has some elasticity so it can fit my bigger wrist comfortably while still being a good fit for smaller wrists as well. I like how this is minimal in style while still having a unique edge thanks to the mixed metals.

Bolzano Ring

This is exactly like the bracelet, only in tiny ring form! This isn’t as adjustable as the bracelet, so this is more comfortable as a midi ring on me.

Here I am wearing both the ring and the bracelet.

The Verdict: I always enjoyed Bolzano, but I am really loving this handbag and accessories version! I have been wanting to up my accessory game, and I really appreciate that classy yet stylish pieces were sent. I am also really happy with my gorgeous new tote bag—the quality of Bolzano bags are excellent, and I am happy to finally have a bigger handbag from the brand I can stuff full with all of the things. The accessories aren’t listed up on the website, so I cannot give a good estimate as to their worth, but like the handbags I have received in the past,  the jewelry seems to be of good quality. I look forward to what accessories September brings!

To Wrap Up:

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

Value Breakdown: Bolzano costs $33.95 per month including free shipping, and I received a leather handbag that is valued at $250 plus three accessories.

I wish they packed these purses better. I don’t think it looks nice being wrinkled up and can be hard to get it right. Not a hige deal but it bothers me just a bit. I am sure shipping is crazy though.

I subscribed based on this review. I understood that I could be a bag that was not my style, but figured christmas was coming so I could gift it. I just got my first bag today. While the style was cute, it is not made from leather, italian or otherwise. The description of the service in this review is: Bolzano is a monthly women’s accessory brand that prides itself on high-quality handcrafted Italian leather handbags. They offer a Purse only subscription as well as a Purse and Accessories subscription. I only use leather bags, I do not like the feel of vegan leather. I contacted Bolzano, and they said that they do not guarantee leather bags. I think that information needs to be on the forefront, as the description implies that you will be receiving leather bags.

I also received a vegan leather bag. I am not happy because I was under the impression that the subscription was for the genuine leather goods.

Reply ButtonReply


How do you know your bag is vegan leather? Is it marked so? I got my bag yesterday and it’s a large black tote style with a zipper on top. It says Made in China inside and had an unpleasant odor so I assume it’s plastic. I don’t see a tag with any material marked. The previous 3 bags I’ve gotten from them have been high quality real leather, so I’m getting out of the subscription since something has obviously changed.


This will be my second time commenting, if this comment even gets posted, my last one didn’t. I am getting the feeling that negative comments are being censored.

A lot of the comments on this review seem fake, like they are coming from the company. I haven’t seen any comments about inflated retail values. While this sub is still really reasonable, the retail values are grossly inflated FYI. Per their website, it says this brand is popular all over the world…yet why can I only find the bags for sale through the subscription service or on poshmark/ebay? No one is paying $400 for one of their bags..considering you can pay like $20 for this subscription.

And honestly if you’re getting a genuine leather bag for $20, that means it cost them $5 to produce it, and that would have me questioning what types of factories they are using. Working in the apparel industry, using a good factory its hard to get a simple t shirt manufactured for less than $6, even in polyester.

It’s getting kinda silly that whenever someone likes a box and says so people come along and say they are company shills. I am NOT part of the company nor do I have any reason to lie about the bags I’ve gotten. I’m not saying the RV is true value, if you have any experience with subscription boxes you know that RV is nothing. What I am saying is that I get a nice real leather bag that I pay $20 for and I like them. It’s worth the $20 for me and it looks like several others as well.

I am hoping someone reads this since it’s almost the end of Sept. I signed up for the purse only subscription, and got the coolest orange messenger bag! I get compliments almost everywhere I go. My only complaint would have to be the size, as it’s smaller than what I usually carry. I asked about pausing the subscription for various reasons and they offered me a quarterly option. I was so pleased with that and the customer service was wonderful..Nothing but good things to say about this subscription. 😄

Hi Jenny,

Sorry for any confusion. Your comments weren’t being censored, but since you used a different name/email, the moderation system flagged you as a new user, and any new user’s first comment has to be viewed by admin before it is posted to the site. Sorry again!

This just seems so very unreal in terms of the cost vs what you get, its kinda mind blowing.

I haven’t gotten my purse this month yet and I am really bummed that I didn’t add the accessories on. I love all 3 of those pieces of jewelry!

Please take a selfie with bag in future so we can get a better feel for size. Thank you.

I received a black satchel. It’s not something I would have picked, too much heavy silver .hardware, I dislike the way it’s open at top. But the value is definitely there. My first bag was a very roomy brown bucket bag, maybe too big for everyday use. I reluctantly canceled bc it just seems like it’s smarter to spend money on bags I choose myself. But it’s a fun sub to try, and the accessory bundle was nice ( gorgeous scarf and the same bracelet/ring set)

Oh,no, a lovely bag and nice jewelry……how can I resist?

I’m gonna be honest here – I don’t think that particular jewelry looks very flattering on you. Rings like that aren’t supposed to be midi rings, the bracelet is also not meant to be that tight. Maybe you should ask CS if they have bigger jewelry sizes?

I just received my 3rd bag this week so ket me share what I’ve gotten. The first month I received one of the BEST bag evers, super soft black leather and pretty much the exact shape as an LV speedy 30. Use it often. The second was a black leather smaller satchel type bag. I was using it for a few weeks and just swapped out the other day, it’s super cute but kinda small. Now this month I got a HUGE wine leather shoulder bag which is sooo soft but way too big for me. Going up for swap sadly. So for me it was 2 outta 3 and the first bag being so awesome made this miss not a big deal at all for me. I’ve been meaning to email them and mayube get something a bit more ME next month.

I really liked the first months bag. The second one wasn’t my style at all. I called them, they sent me a new bag right away, along with a return label for the original. I didn’t like that bag either. I packed up both bags, put the box in my car to drop off at post office the next day. My car was broken into that night, this was three days ago. They stole my “car” wallet, just packed with stuff, but nothing of real importance, luckily. But, they took my box! The bags box, and a couple other as well. I feel really badly about not being able to send back these bags. The CS is top notch, though the bags are not for me.

I received my second shipment today. My bag was a black Fiore, for my accessories I received the same ring/bracelet and for my third I receive a silk scarf.

They have followed my preference from the style questionnaire to the T.

Reply ButtonReply


I also Received the red Fiore bag. It is crazy soft leather but definitely not what I would Have chosen for myself. It is way too big for me as I change out my purses often then tend to not have much in them. I may list mine for swap. Gorgeous bag, just not my type.

I got a different bracelet, same silver wire with gold ends, but mine is a triple strand. I also received a gorgeous square scarf in red tones. Reminds me of Italian buildings but in a Van Gogh style. I love It.

A lot of these comments on here seem a bit scripted. You all know that the RV of these bags is super inflated…right? I don’t see these bags selling anywhere except as part of this subscription, and on poshmark/ebay/etc.
Either way, if these bags are your taste, that price tag is great for a leather bag, but I don’t believe for one second those RV’s.

I got the large ted fiore bag. Retail 400 bucks…member 200. I LOVE it. It us huge. Also got the same bracelet and ring set but not the necklace. Instead they sent a little red leather card holder. The purse is cow leather and lamb on ends. It is AWESOME. Customer service is great too. They are located in Florida. They also sent a black flower wristet zipper pouch. I had trouble getting sugned up online so they sent the wristlet as a gift. Wonderful for my yard sale adventures.

I am going to have to watch this one. It looks great! I’m sure my husband would be thrilled to see a purse sub. 😉

This is my third delivery from Bolzano and I cannot say how much I am impressed! All three bags I’ve received are exactly what I would love. I started the accessories sub last month and received gorgeous quality jewelry and….an additional bag! This month I received a silk scarf and the same ring/bracelet set as this review which I also love. I cannot get over the quality vs. the price. I’m a black purse junkie and although I mentioned a few other color options on my form (I really prefer black bags because they go with almost everything) I’ve gotten all black bags so far which I couldn’t be happier with. If this keeps up which I hope it will- I’ll never need to buy another purse/bag again. I’m only using my first one – the other ones are put away for when I’m ready for a treat!

I signed up a couple months ago and this is my 2nd bag. I found the one on the website just different color and its value is $398. Wow! I think to date this may be my absolute favorite sub box (I do not get the accessories only the purse) I do not need another purse in my life but I am going to continue to get this because I am so in love with it! With just the questions they are able to completely send me exactly what I love in a purse!

Wow! I can’t imagine needing a new purse every month, but this looks like a great value and I’ll put it on my watchlist. 🙂

I signed up Thursday night I didn’t get a email to ask my preferences. I went on the website and found out in Q and A and did my profile. I hope they send it soon. I’ll email them Monday.

It took them almost a week to send me the profile questions.

I received the profile questions when I signed up for the subscription.


This subscription seems unbelievable. I’d like to hear more from other people who subscribe. And more about the style profile.

Reply ButtonReply


I have received three bags and I love all three of them!!! (just FYI, my first was bright orange and I was a bit scared when I saw it, but I told them in my profile I wasn’t afraid of color – so think hard when you fill out that profile!!! BTW, I get TONS of compliments on it!!!) I did have some issues with the second shipment, but I contacted customer service (after midnight which was when I had realized I had not received the bag) and they resent my bag the next day. I had horrible trouble signing up, but again, customer service handled it quickly. I LOVE the accessories!!! I couldn’t be more thrilled with them. I was doing Ivory Clasp and was so bored with the same selections every month.. this has been PERFECT for me. I don’t care about “real leather” or if it can be purchased out of the US, I just want some cool purses that I may not have seen or purchased otherwise. I think it is all in what you want.

I got my 2nd box today. The bags seem well made and their customer service is great. I got a big black leather bag that i love.

Jessica where does it say the bags are made on the tag? I went to the website and couldn’t find any information. Thanks!

Mine says China.

You can buy necklace extenders for under $10 (sets of multiple lengths and metal tones) on Amazon. They wouldn’t show because they’d be in the back, and can be made to work with pretty much any lobster claw/spring ring-type clasp without requiring the use of any tools.

Reply ButtonReply


I did not get this bag. I got a huge bright red leather bag with reptile print and gaudy gold detailing. It is nothing like anything I own and it is not something I would normally buy for myself…

I surprisingly love it and can not wait to show up Monday at work with it.

Reply ButtonReply


I think I received the same purse as you. I’m trying to decide whether or not I like it. It’s huge compared to what I typically carry. There is a ton of pockets and the leather is crazy soft. It’s $398 on sale for $200 on the website. I can’t believe they send them out for $20.

Reply ButtonReply


I got it too.. I carried it when I dropped my kids off at college, I was so excited to have it. It holds SO much!!! Not sure I will carry it daily, but I LOVE this bag!!!


I love the purse and Jewelry I am really watching this sub even a couple months would be worth it
