Monthly XIO Bag September 2019 Review
The theme of this month’s box is “September Bling,” featuring five dazzling pieces that totally live up to this month's theme.
On the back of the info card, XIO lists each item featured as well as what each accessory is made of and its retail value. Each piece is made up of 925 sterling silver, and the gold pieces are plated 925 sterling silver.
"Hotline Bling" Hoops - Retail Value $55
XIO's baguette stones are always stunning; they definitely brought the bling for this month's theme, and I am living for it! The hoops have a bit of weight to them, but not enough to irritate my sensitive ears. This pair of hoops feels classy yet playful with the rough edges; I love the style, and I can't wait to wear these out on our next date night!
The "Blingy" Bracelet - Retail Value $48
Oh yeah! A matching bracelet to the stunning pair of hoop earrings! I am obsessed. I can't tell you how much I really appreciate the drawstring closures on XIO's bracelets, too. For the longest time, I was not interested in wearing bracelets because I would get too frustrated trying to work the clasps with one hand - not anymore! This beauty will also fit wrists of all sizes, no problem. If you want a shiny distraction on a boring day at work, wear one of these multidimensional pieces; it works every time.
"Mini Bling" Ring - Retail Value $35
Although simple, the Mini Bling rings add a little bit of sparkle to any look! Delicate jewelry has a special place in my heart, and I always reach for pieces like this for looks that are understated. Dress them up or wear them casually, this accessory is so easy to blend in with other pieces, and it is a comfortable fit thanks to the pliable, yet solid sterling silver.
"Single Bling" Studs - Retail Value $18
Single Bling Studs are just one single baguette crystal, but they are far from boring. I paired them with the Hotline Bling hoops, and I am loving the two together; they really light up in the sunshine! As far as posts go from XIO, I definitely think these are my favorites. You can pair them with anything for a cool, chic look, or go blingy like I did below.
"Subtly Blingy" Necklace - Retail Value $60
Subtly Blingy is a great name for this necklace. I love how they alternated with the dangling and flush baguettes, which is kind of reminding me of Tetris. As always, they nailed the delicate aesthetic! XIO provides a large 3-4 inch extender on each of their necklaces, so you can wear one as a choker or a bit longer for a layered look. This necklace also matches perfectly with the Single Bling Studs and the Mini Bling Ring this month. I wore all five pieces together for the total bling experience, and I loved it!
I love wearing my coordinating pieces from XIO!
The Verdict: Monthly XIO Bag's brilliant September Bling theme feeds my need for sparkle! Oooh I just love the varying yet coordinating pieces!! This month I received 5 accessories, which brings each piece down to $14—a great value! I love XIO’s jewelry, and I believe next month is their one year sub anniversary, and I am sure they have something festive lined up!
