There isn’t a traditional information card or invoice included with the subscription box, but rather a personalized handwritten card with styling suggestions. I really enjoy the personalized and thoughtful touch of this card and the handy styling tips that were included.

Leopard Beaded Purse—Retail Value Unavailable

This bag has a handmade craftsmanship to it that I truly appreciate. The top flap and strap are made from a faux fur leopard print with black beading detail on the purse and back of the strap itself. The bag is small but large enough to be able to carry essentials like cash, cards, a lipstick, and phone. The bag is versatile, but I opted to pair it with a mauve faux leather biker jacket from a previous ShoeDazzle box, cowboy booties, a mini-skirt, and floral blouse from an upcoming Stitch Fix box. I love clashing patterns, especially floral against a leopard print. They really enhance one another well! This bag will add some va va voom to any casual ensemble you style it with.

Black and Red Beaded Necklace—Retail Value Unavailable

I have gravitated towards beaded necklaces for years, so I absolutely love this piece. The black and red 80s era necklace is made of plastic beads in various shapes and sizes. I paired it with a fantastic jumpsuit from a recent Dia & Co box (review coming soon!). This necklace will look fantastic with a vintage style short sleeved sweater and red pencil skirt with heels for the office or with baggy vintage t-shirt, skinny leg jeans, flats, knit beanie, and an oversized cardigan for a casual Friday or Sunday Funday look!

Black and Gold Cloisonné Earrings—Retail Value Unavailable

Years ago, I had a bit of an obsession with cloisonné pieces, especially unicorn pieces. I was straight up obsessed. I know I would have squealed if I had found these understated beauties at the flea market! These classic black enamel cloisonné earrings look great paired with the black and red necklace included in this month’s box, but would also look wonderful paired with gold accessories as well. These romantic earrings are incredibly adaptable making them a great value also!

Nicole and her CHC crew know that I am a sucker for all the leopard print things, so I am not surprised by the inclusion of this bracelet. These plastic bangles have vivid neon florals and wild animal prints that can be worn together or alone. The only negative is I could not get these over my hands, but I plan on gifting them to a friend with smaller hands. My loss is their gain!

Finally, we have this jewel-toned, frosted, marble, plastic bead necklace. The beads have a tiger eye like appearance that appeals to me. I chose to pair the necklace with a red bodysuit to complement the deep and vibrant colors featured on this necklace. The piece is lightweight and isn’t too short or long where it hits on my chest.

Verdict: This month’s selections work wonderfully together and enhance each other well! I appreciate all the textures and color schemes in the pieces sent to me this month. The bangles didn’t work for me, but I can easily gift them to a friend that will get great use from them. Consistently, CHC sends me thoughtful boxes that are obviously hand- picked for me. It is such a special service; it feels more like getting a care package from a long lost friend than a subscription box service.

To Wrap Up:

Can you still get this box if you sign up today? Each box is curated with one of a kind accessories, so your box will likely look different than mine.

Value Breakdown: This box is $55 for five accessories and shipping and handling. Five items at $55 come up to $11 per piece. That is an awesome value!

  1. Cute bangles but I feel like they aren’t really worth the cost.

  2. Hi Nicole As always you look wonderful! I recently purchased a bag close to this one you just received. I added a large vintage brooch to mine and it really added that perfect punch of “oomph”.

    • Sounds cute!

    • Michelle that sounds adorable!

  3. Beautiful as always. I want those bangles soooo bad!

    • Wendy, weren’t they precious?!
