Bolzano Purse and Accessories Club Fall/Winter Preview 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.

Carlotta Handbag – Listed Value $149

When I pulled this handbag out of the dust bag I literally gasped—it is everything I want in a purse! I am in love with the eggplant purple color, which is perfect for the fall and winter fashion I have in mind. It features an outer zipper pocket, and the interior is divided with a middle separator. This bag is quite roomy and can fit all sorts of unnecessary clutter that I love to carry around with me. This also features key rings on the side to attach a shoulder strap. The strap is supposed to come inside the purse, sadly mine was missing. Luckily, the Bolzano customer service is fantastic and they promptly shipped me my shoulder strap and it should be here in a few days! This purse is a preview of the fall/winter collection, so hopefully, current subscribers receive this gorgeous purse soon!

Rock Studded Wrap Bracelet

Rock Studded Wrap Bracelet

This is such a unique bracelet! It features rocks attached to the leather band, and surrounding the stones are tiny seed beads adding sparkle. This has two snap closures so it is adjustable for different wrists, and I love that the purple band compliments the purse.

Paris Scarf

This scarf features the Eiffel tower, a four leaf clover, a Fleur de Lis, and the word “Paris” in a style that evokes Louis Vuitton. The scarf feels very silky, but there is no tag identifying the actual materials it is made with. I have never been one for tying scarves to purses, but the bright colors of the scarf made me think it would pair well with the purse.

Here it is tied on. Admittedly, I don’t actually know how to tie a scarf to a bag, but I love the pairing!

The Verdict: This is my favorite purse yet from Bolzano! I feel like they absolutely nailed my taste based on the answers I gave on my style questionnaire, and the quality is really out of this world for the $33.95 price of the subscription. I don’t know if I would walk into a store and pay $149 for this (to be fair, I didn’t buy my current Michael Kors purse until it was severely discounted- who wants to pay full price for anything?), but I definitely this subscription is a great value if you love new purses. Also, am I the only one who think the scarf looks tied onto the purse? I feel so chic now.

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 the subscription promises to send a handbag and accessories worth at least $250. Each of the items in the box has an average cost of 11.32.

  1. I just signed up with the black friday deal. My first purse arrived in record time. I got the same bag as pictured only in a beautiful navy blue. It also came with a scarf and a cute bracelet that is black not purple. The scarf is beautiful, feels luxurious and unlike this purple version it is done with a Parisian theme that feels timeless. Very classy ensemble. I love this subscription so far and can not wait for this months pick.

  2. I have been very disappointed– my first bag was a big FLAT faux croc with off-white lining and was damaged by poor packing– there are handle imprints on both sides of the bag. That was 8/28. I had emailed them and they said to mark my wish list, but never mentioned or offered to replace the damaged bag. I signed up for the by 3 months get 4 bag + accessories and have yet to receive another bag. website does not show any shipping or tracking… There was no paperwork, return label or hello/thank you etc. Has this happened to anyone else?

  3. When I unpacked this purse my first idea was that the pack may not be my correct style. I was agreeably amazed when I began to look all starry eyed at the pack! Since I have unpacked this tote by Bolzano, I have worn it consistently to work! It is formally my present work bag.

  4. Any update on when this purse will be available? I emailed them and they haven’t replied to me. I really want this bag.

  5. I will say they have very fast email response. I cancelled a few months ago and emailed them today about resubscribing. Unfortunately they can’t give me the $20 a month again, but they offered a GWP which I appreciate.

  6. Wow! I’m loving that eggplant purse.

  7. Wow, very tempting!

  8. I love that purse! I’ve been a subscriber to this for several months and have only been slightly disappointed once when they sent a slightly too big black bag. Even that one was great quality; just not my personal style. I was fortunate enough to sign up pretty early and so only pay $19.99 a month — for a real leather bag!!!

    • I was able to get a quarterly subscription from them. I got a great orange messenger bag from them that is perfect for fall, but could not see getting a new purse every month, so thru email I was offered that. Can’t wait to see what I get next! And my bag was real leather Suzanne.

  9. I too am curious about the size and if it’s real leather.

  10. I had this sub for three months. I told them I like big bags on my survey. The first bag was so small I couldn’t even put my wallet in it. There was a note with it saying they read my comment on liking big bags.
    And that this bag looks small but it holds a lot. It was tiny. I carried it once to the movies with my phone and a pack of gum in it. That’s really about all that would fit.

    I thought I would give them one more month. The next bag was the same style as the little bag, just bigger. I didn’t like it. Never used it.

    So I emailed them to cancel. They said no problem it would be canceled. They did not cancel my sub. When I got the email they charged me for the next month I emailed them again. On the same email so they could see I asked before. I told them I wanted a refund. Nothing, no response.

    Then they shipped my bag. Actually this is the first bag I liked. It was not leather. It was made of a nylon material. So I emailed again. This time they answered. “I’m so sorry, your sub will be canceled immediately. “

    Hopefully This wasn’t to confusing, I felt like I needed to warn people about their customer service. I was beginning to think I was going to have to call my credit card. They need to make it so you cancel yourself on your account page.

    • This is why I haven’t tried this sub. I really only like big bags. Just about every bag I have seen from reviews are on the small side. The fact your bigger bag was a “nylon” bag and it wasn’t canceled the first time you asked just solidifies my reason for not subscribing.

      • I have had them for three months and have only received large bags. I received a nylon bag that had genuine leather accents and trim.

      • I’ve been with them 3 months and they’ve all been large bags, as I requested. All were leather. One was a huge brown bucket bag. One was a large black satchel type (not my style, but I gave it away) and then a crossbody/shoulder bag with awful green leather accents that I snipped off, and the leather on that one is so luxurious and gorgeous. I don’t know why others have had trouble getting large bags.

    • Thanks for your feedback, Linda. This is the type of stuff I want to know before I try a box.

  11. What’s the purse made of ?

    • They are all leather usually, have not seen one that isn’t actual real leather. 🙂

      Another thing that should be in the review I think. 😀

      • According to the Bolzano website this purse is vegan leather, which is disappointing.

  12. This will be my fifth month with this sub and so far I’m happy with it. One home run, one pretty good, one I gifted to my Mom in law and the other I swapped for something I really wanted. I’m going to try to remember to email them and tell them I love that bag and would like that as my bag this month if possible.

    BUT could you maybe model the bag so we cna see the actual size on a person? There are no measurements above and while I love the bag biog or small it would be super helpful for others I’d bet. I know not everyone likes to model stuff and put their pics online but to be fair that’s really the only way to tell the size….. maybe a friend wouldn’t mind holding it?

    • I agree. Show the bag worn with a real person so we can see the size,
      Love the scarf. Hate the bracelet.

    • I second the please post a picture of you wearing the bag for size reference.

      I have a little tripod and shutter button for my phone I’ve used for pics before. It’s a great way to snap pics of you need to set the phone down.

    • I also would like to see photos of you holding the bag to get a better reference for size. I also agree about the measurements and materials being posted.

      It’s helpful to see pictures of it carried over the shoulder and carried in hand. I think my mom would love this and it’s been a bit since I’ve sent her a purse subscription.

      You could probably even use a cellphone tripod and remote shutter button to snap them.

      That bracelet is really cute and I need to have it. The scarf isn’t really my style but I’d imagine it amounted to very little of the overall value and can be gifted, donated or used as a headscarf for masking.

    • I agree, a pic of you carrying the purse would be very helpful. Otherwise great review!

    • I agree what that suggestion! It would be really helpful to have an idea of sizing. 🙂

      • I agree that a picture would be helpful.

        • Post with a magazine next to it… that’s generally what I do and shows scale well but agree with others would love to see you rocking the bag and bracelet!

  13. I LOVE that purse…deep purple is my favorite color! The color is exactly what I want and am currently looking for!! This review and more specifically that purse is tempting me to subscribe!!
