Bolzano Purse and Accessories Club March 2019 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.

Susanna Sapphire – Retail Value $145

This bag is large and in charge- if you’re the type to sneak in all the snacks to a movie theatre, this is the purse you want. I think the light blue paired with brown accents is very chic, and I love that it has an outer zipper pocket along with a roomy interior that zips completely closed. I am not sure what materials were used to make it, but it felt very sturdy without being stiff.

Bolzano Purse And Accessories Club March 2019 - Model

Here is my friend modeling the bag! For perspective, she is 5’4.

Flower Necklace

Normally I really enjoy the jewelry from Bolzano, but something went wrong here. This necklace reminds me of something I would have worn as a young teenager- not as a young professional. The flower charm is on a black cord, and no information about the material used for the flower was provided.

Blue Scarf with Fringe

This scarf is so pretty! It is big enough to be wrapped around several times for warmth, but the material is lightweight so it can be worn during a breezy spring day. I love the contrast of the blue and brown design, and while I don’t *think* it is silk I am really happy with how soft it is.

Bolzano Purse And Accessories Club March 2019 - Purse Companions

Bolzano has a new purse add-on program called Purse Companions! For $10 a month (or $8 if you are a quarterly subscriber), you receive 2-3 beauty products.

Desi Eyeshadow Palette

I couldn’t find this palette online, and I will be honest and say it has been a long time since I have received an eyeshadow palette with foam applicators. The pigment was actually pretty good, and most of the shimmers applied with ease.

These beauty sponges are a lot firmer than the original beauty blender, but they still blended out my makeup well.

Moisturizing Gel Gloves

These gloves have a coating of gel on the inside that is designed to moisturize your hands. I love hand masks, but I honestly didn't feel like my hands were more moisturized after wearing.

The Verdict: Bolzano is such a great subscription for those who love having new accessories at an affordable cost. For $33.95 I received a cute, quality purse, a necklace, and a scarf. Then, for an extra $10 I received 3 beauty products. For me, personally, I prefer to have my beauty products to be a bit more high quality, so the purse companions option may not be the best fit for me. I do think the overall value is still great- The value of the purse alone is $145, and the necklace and scarf surely add to that. If you are looking to up your accessory game on a budget I strongly recommend checking out Bolzano.

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. If you have your heart set on a particular piece, reach out to customer service and see if they can help!

LIMITED TIME DEAL: Receive a FREE Black Ceramic Watch with the purchase of a 3-month subscription! (Value $125).

(Shoppers will need to add both the 3-month subscription and the FREEWATCH products to their cart in order for the deal to work!)

Value Breakdown: The purse and accessories subscription from Bolzano costs $33.95 per month including free shipping. That is like paying $11.32 each for the necklace, purse, and scarf. The purse companions is an extra $10 a month, which means each of those 3 items breaks down to $3.33 each.

I am a staunch believer that pineapple doesn’t belong on pizza and when I’m not working as a family law attorney I enjoy hiking the Louisiana trails (alligator sightings are a favorite!) or relaxing with Duchess, my cat. I’m a sucker for anything labeled a mystery box and I’ve never met a bath bomb I didn’t like.

I received that one in my January or February shipment, my mom liked it so I sent it to her.

I had been been happy with my bags, they are all good quality and the ones I gifted had been well receive.

Now I do feel the accessories has gone downhill, one of my first had Swarovski crystal and looks and feel good quality, but after that they had decrease the amount I received and the quality seems off.

I recently cancel (hoping CC did actually cancel my account) because I have too many bags, and well I was not happy with the accessories.

Overall, whoever packed my bags did follow my questionnaire, they all good quality, not sure if all are leather, seems you cant never know. The accessories went down, so I’ll save my $ on that.

I wasn’t happy with my bags at all. They do not match my style at all according to how I answered the questions. I complained after the first bag which was really stiff and CS via chat said that it was because bags have certain “profiles” so I should adjust my answers. I did but they sent another stiff bag, and it was black, just like the first one. I also didn’t get the watch so their answer was that I had to pre-pay for all 3 months up front. They asked if I wanted to go ahead and complete the 3 month payment so I could get the watch and I agreed, but they didn’t process it properly so I was charged a month at a time, and still no watch. The last purse was a sage green color which I like, but another stiff “profile” with a harsh chemical smell.
And don’t get the accessories (jewelry) as it’s cheap and childish. Out of 3 pairs of earrings and 3 necklaces I like 2.

I’ve been subbing for about 6 months now. I really like my purses, but I believe they have all been leather. I actually prefer vegan leather, pleather, vinyl…whatever you want to call it. I no longer purchase any apparel or accessories made from animal skin except these bags.

That said, I have only received one bag I don’t like. For me the attached “B” logo works great since it’s also my initial.

I did get this same bag, but mine is a deep orange and I LOVE it and get complements on it. I pack a LOT of stuff in my bag if there’s room and there have been bags whose straps have broken pretty quickly from the weight. These seem to be holding pretty tough.

I sort of wish I didn’t do the accessory add-on, because I haven’t really liked the tiny jewelry and I don’t wear scarves too often, but I keep hoping I’ll like something.

Overall, I switched to this from Ivory Clasp because Ivory Clasp was more $ and was getting truly boring, sending me identical bags in different colors every month. This is a bit of fun each month, and I use almost all the bags.

I switched from Ivory Clasp to Bolzano for the same reason! I got in at $19.95/month for the purse only subscription and have been quite happy most months. I would have loved to get this purse however! My purse for March was very professional looking and does not suit my lifestyle but like I said for $20/month, most months I am very happy!

I like that the purse is big but not feeling the design. Scarf is very pretty. Necklace…not so much.

I’ve been trying to cancel my subscription because I’m not happy with the bags I’ve been receiving. I tried contacting customer service a few times by various methods. I finally had a response from Bolzano asking if there was any reason why I wanted to cancel. I answered them and thought they had sent through the cancellation. Apparently not because I’ve been charged again and again received a bag I don’t like. I’m still trying to get a response to email and messages but no luck yet.

That exact eyeshadow palette is available at Ross for a few dollars in several different color combos. The necklace looks like a cartoon splat mark lol

Reply ButtonReply


That eyeshadow pallete is the worst idea Bolzano has come up with yet. People who value handbags know the difference between a $5 pallete and a $50 one. Most following this blog subscribe to beauty boxes that have outstanding value. We knke the difference. To send this pallete shows how much this company values it’s customers.

BTW anyone still advertising this company as “italian leather” is less credible in my opinion. There is nothing I have seen sent to me within 6 months that holds a candle to “quality leather goods.” These are beautiful budget purses. You are getting what you pay for with this sub. which is style and variety if you are lucky. Nothing upscale or designer and certainly not leather anymore. They need to step up their game. We know quality over quantity and too many have been duped for me to remain silent.

That exact eyeshadow palette is available at Ross for a couple bucks in tons of different color combos. The flower necklace looks like a splat mark. Not worth the cost. That purse is kinda fugly.

LOVE that purse! What a great deal for $33.95!!!

I was a member for several months. All they ever sent were big leather bags, that were not my style. When the last one got here and I didn’t like it, I emailed their CS and they were nice. They offered a different bag, and sent it with packing to return the first one. When I got the new one, I didn’t like it either lol I boxed up both bags and put in it in the backseat to drop off at PO in the morning. Of course my car was broken into that night. They took everything, even my lipstick and balm I keep in there, which creepy and weird. I just gave up after that. I’m glad I did, since every review about them had, what I considered, ugly. No leather would have canceling anyway.

I finally canceled. They started with nice leather bags and have since sent vinyl. I complained several times and they finally sent two small leather bags for last month. This month, back to the fake stuff. Plus it has a horrible chemical smell. I didn’t receive any communication back from them when I emailed, so I hope I’m not billed again next month.

You have not cancelled they make it really hard to cancel I had to call my credit card company so they would not charge me any more

Reply ButtonReply


I’ve been having a problem with them getting back with me to cancel.

I subscribed on the 13th.

I still don’t having tracking or a handbag.

Reply ButtonReply


They never send me tracking information. I am always afraid my bag will be lost or stolen in transit. The large bags are too large for my taste. Their customer service is terrible. Saying one thing and doing another. I sent 4 emails and they still charged me today regardless on how many different ways I have gone about cancelling.

I honestly love my bags (vegan leather and all.) Some of the accessories/scarves are beautifully made but seem a little too old school for my tastes. The qualty and design is aesthetically pleasing and durable. I am slim 5’9″ These larger bags make me look silly in comparison and are hard to carry comfortably. My profile spec. states no large bags. I also now have 4 with the same top handle which is also a pain to use when out running errands. Again, not my preference but hard to tell what category they are in to update their survey properly.

I’m hoping the company will listen to our concerns and change their ways. They have a decent product. The value is wonderful for the price but their website and execution is why I am trying to cancel. It is not worth the aggravation for a purse collection I don’t even need.

Reply ButtonReply


Their purses are good quality in my opinion. I haven’t had any issues with them and the zippers work well.

Their customer service could use improvement though. It was a major hassle to cancel when I just wanted a break for a few months to save money and was planning on coming back. But with all the issues I had, I doubt I will sign back up unless they go to the option to cancel online instead of emailing them.

Yay! So excited to see a picture of someone holding the purse. Thank you so much!

Also when Bolzano started the huge draw was that it was all 100% leather bags. So that’s change now?

Reply ButtonReply


They ARE mainly a duty- free shop vendor. I had thought so, and the search terms ” duty free shops” plus the Bolzano brand name brought up a whole ton of info.
So, the Retail Price of the bag means nothing at all.
Just info some people might like to have if they resell their leather bags ( Balzano does send some leather bags).

Reply ButtonReply


When this subscription first launched, they said ” Leather bags” and I did get teeny tiny leather bags probably OK for a 12 year old girl. I cancelled really soon.

The packaging and so forth that my few bags were sent in before I cancelled screamed ” DUTY FREE SHOPS” to me. I could just see these boxed and tied purses being sold in one of the many duty free shops at international airport shops around the world.

I think that’s their main customer base, and the subscription deal is a completely afterthought. I’ve never seen the brand anywhere in the US for sale, but I don’t shop at TJ Maxx or those bag outlet types of stores either. ( They aren’t in my general shopping area).

My advice? Save up for the truly great, long lasting primo bags of your choice and budget. If it means a bag a year, then get a fab bag per year of YOUR CHOICE. 😉

I would rather save a little bit and buy a nice purse than buy from questionable brand with overinflated RV values.

Agreed. I don’t understand why anyone would want this sub. The bags all look cheap to me. But you know, in this world you really only get what you pay for.

Some people like plastic cheap purses. Why is beyond me.


Thanks for checking.

Thank you so much for FINALLY showing the actual size by modeling it.

Those gloves look ideal to add your own hand cream on your hands and “hand mask”. I appreciate the gel inside so the glove won’t absorb the lotions or creams and fit better than the plastic hand masks would and I could keep my dexterity and do things around the house if I wanted. Plus washable.

You never stated what material the purse is made of. I’m assuming not leather, and just something man made.

The link on the Bolanzo site offers no information either about the materials.
