Bolzano Lux Handbag & Accessories Review – September 2019
Bolzano is a monthly women’s accessory brand that prides itself on high-quality handcrafted Italian leather, vegan leather, and nylon handbags. While they used to offer a purse only subscription, it looks like they now only offer the Lux Handbag, Accessories, & Beauty Subscription.
This is a review of the Lux Handbag, Accessories, & Beauty Subscription for $43.95 a month.
Once you sign up, you are sent a style questionnaire and Bolzano’s team of stylists pick the bag and accessories you will receive each month. The total value of each month’s box is up to a $300 value!
This box was sent to us at no cost for review. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes.)

Bolzano Lux Handbag, Accessories, & Beauty September 2019 Review
After I signed up, I was sent a lengthy questionnaire that asked me about my color and pattern preferences, purse style and shapes that I liked (or didn’t like) and any other information I would like to share with the Bolzano team to ensure a good match!
Attached to the outer bag was this pamphlet including info about the brand Bolzano.
Inside the pamphlet features the story of Bolzano’s designer, Leylani Cardoso – an incredible businesswoman!
I also received an informational card with details about the bag I received this month.
Bolzano “Gabriela” Bag – Listed Value $198
Fall is in the air, and I am in love! Look at this beautiful mustard yellow, PETA-certified, vegan leather bag! Measuring at approximately 15” X 10” this large beauty can fit all of your essentials plus more. I am loving the sewn on handles for carrying in hand, or on the shoulder, with the versatility of adding the included strap for a crossbody. Not only does it have an additional inside pocket, and non-zip pockets, but it also features an outer zipper for extra storage. The bag itself is soooo soft and well made! I am a purse addict, and I have to say, the zippers and materials used to make this purse are top notch. There is no uneven stitching, fraying, or “sloppiness” about it! It even has little feet on the bottom for added protection. I also love the fact that it comes with a silver “B” charm for a little added glitz, especially because B is my initial! It looks like it was made just for me! For size reference, I am 5’7”.
I love how pretty they package the items! It’s like unwrapping a birthday gift!
Desi “True Red” Lipliner by Chelly Cosmetics
Here we have a bright red lip liner made by Chelly cosmetics. This color is definitely bright red, and gives me more of a summer vibe than fall, but it applied nicely and didn’t bleed (I am wearing it in the above purse photos.) I was unable to locate brand online, but it says it is made in Miami, Florida.
Rose Gold Eyelash/Eyebrow Tool Set
How sweet is this packaging? I love the glitter backdrop so much that I am saving it for scrapbooking! These 3 tools are really neat! I love the eyelash curler, and the scissors, but actually had to look up what the 3rd item might be… I’ve only tried applying fake eyelashes once and it ended in disaster, so maybe I will give it another whirl with this handy dandy fake eyelash applicator!
Black Cosmetic Bag
After the beautiful mustard bag this plain black cosmetic bag is a bit of a letdown, but my husband actually nabbed it up for his toiletries! This 4” X 6” black, nylon pouch features a zipper and netted divider to keep things organized.
See how nice and roomy it is? My husband is pretty pumped!
Another stash of goodies!!!
I’m not sure if I mentioned this, but not only do I hoard purses, but I also have a thing for scarves, and this one is gorgeous! I love the color combo and the fancy woman with the tiny skulls! It seriously couldn’t have captured what I love more! I didn’t feel like it was the best match to tie onto this month’s purse, but I loved it around my neck with the jean jacket. I also plan on wearing it in my hair!
Silver Cuff Bracelet
I seriously think this box was made just for me. I adore this silver cuff! It fits my large wrist perfectly, and the cutout design is comfortable and trendy. I can pair this with so many outfits- I am actually going to wear it to work tomorrow!
Last but not least are these navy blue tassel earrings. I have to admit, I am not a fan of tassels… I see them everywhere and slightly groan each time. BUT after I tried these earrings on, I actually kind of liked them. I am a sucker for anything navy, and these really looked cute with my white skirt and navy top combo. I guess I don’t hate tassels as much as I thought!
The Verdict: I love the Bolzano box! This is my first time reviewing their monthly box (I previously reviewed their Mother’s Day Special in May) and I am such a fan! As I said above, I am obsessed with purses and accessories, so this is a perfect match for me! I feel like my stylist really took my profile seriously and found me the perfect items. If you are looking for beautiful purses and accessories on a budget, I highly suggest this subscription!
To Wrap Up:
Can you still get this box if you sign up today? You can definitely still sign up, but the bag and accessories you get depend 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!
Value Breakdown: For $43.95 I received 8 items, so you are paying about $5.49 an item. I think this is an incredible buy, especially for that gorgeous purse!
