Unboxing The Bizarre Chic Boutique May 2019 Review
This is my third Bizarre box and, with this May being an incredibly busy and special month for my family (several birthdays to celebrate, Mother’s Day, and my sister-in-law’s destination wedding), I was excited to see what other reasons I could find to keep the celebration going all month! Luckily, the insert card features a bit of information about the holidays that are being featured and even a few suggested ways for you to celebrate.
The first thing I noticed when I opened the box was the handwritten note. Those are always thoughtful and sweet touches, so I was excited to see what it had to say. I mean – how often do you get a handwritten note anymore? This one basically said that they weren’t happy with the sizing of the rhino bracelets, so they were including a mystery gift – fine by me!
Bonus item – Mystery Necklace
Since this item isn’t identified and is a “mystery” I’m assuming this is a variant item and that there might have been other items included as an apology for the bracelet sizing. I, however, am very happy with the little birdie that I received! It’s tiny – and honestly – a perfect gift to pass along to my special little niece who is very into birds (she’s 4).
The rest of the jewelry items are enclosed in this little whale pouch.
Rhino Bangle Bracelets – Listed Value $9.99 (This list price seems a bit low as a similar item can be found here for $29.97)
In honor of: Save The Rhino Day (May 1st)
Did you know that rhinos have been on earth for over a million years and are considered to be living dinosaurs? Rhinos are beautiful animals that are often hunted for their horns, and quite a few species are near facing extinction. While I knew that, I didn’t know that this obscure holiday falls on the same day as my son’s birthday – now, rhinos have a special meaning to me! As you can see in the photo, we received 2 bracelets (1 in silver and 1 in a brass finish) and I thought the sizing was fine. They fit my 6.25″ wrist perfectly, although they were a little snug to put on initially.
TIE Fighter Necklace – Listed Value $24.99 (A similar pendant can be found here for $10.00)
In honor of: Star Wars Day (May 4th)
May the 4th be with you.
This necklace is definitely going to go into my jewelry box to make an appearance next year when we plan to check out the new Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge in Disney. This necklace is on the longer side (measuring around 20”), the pendant is about 1” in width and about 1/2 inch in height, and features an opaque black crystal.
Cat Music Scarf – Retail Value $11.99
In honor of: International Jazz Day (May 25th or April 30th)
This scarf is huge! Measuring 70” in length and 32” wide, you can wear it so many ways! Suggested uses include wearing it around your neck, shoulders, or waist, or on your purse or hat. I could even see using it as a headwrap or some type of home décor – maybe tying it around a wreath or using it to cover a sofa table. Unfortunately, I’m a dog person – so this will go in the box of cat stuff that I pass along to my cat-loving mother in law!
Enamel Wine Necklace – Retail Vale $2.84 (Listed Value 15.99)
In honor of: National Wine Day (May 25th)
As some MSA readers know, I review quite a few bottles of wine every month, so this necklace is perfect for me! Measuring about 2 inches wide, and about ¾ inches tall at the highest point, it’s on a shorter chain and is perfect with a crew neck. I love the little crystal bling accents, and the fact that the wine poured into the glass forms the shape of a heart.
The Verdict: This is a pretty fun box to get. I love the curation of the Bizarre Chic Boutique box, and the variety of accessories that they include! I received five items this month representing four different holidays plus a special bonus necklace.
I struggled with the value estimation on this, because some items I found are priced higher online while some are much lower. Using the listed values, I calculate around $63 worth of product. Using the values I found online, I calculate $86, as the rhino bracelets alone appear to cost well above their list price, but are offset by some of the ones that I found for less than list price online. Anyways you slice it though, I think that the value is fair. This box costs $30 ($25 for the box + $5 shipping) so I feel that the products received exceeded the value of the box regardless of how you calculate the financials.
To Wrap Up:
Can you still get this box if you sign up today? No. If you sign up now your first box will be the July box.
Value Breakdown: Using the list price, the total value of this month’s box is about $63. At around $30 for this box ($25 a month plus $5 shipping), here’s what you are paying approximately per item:
- Rhino Bracelets (2): $4.76
- Star Wars Necklace: $11.90
- Cat Scarf: $5.71
- Wine Necklace: $7.62
