Bolzano Lux Handbag & Accessories Review – October 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 $300!
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 October 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!
Bolzano Red, Ivory, and Black Crossbody Purse
I. Love. This. Bag! Seriously! Last month Bolzano sent me a beautiful mustard yellow bag that I have been using every single day, but now I am going to have to give that one a rest because I am head over heels for this crossbody! Measuring at 8″ X 6″ this purse doesn’t fit as much as the “Gabriela” purse I received last month, but it is lighter, and sooo sexy! Last month I received a content card with information about the purse I received so I knew what materials it was made of, while this month I didn’t. I’m not entirely sure what this purse is made out of, but I can tell you it is very soft, and it seems very well made. The stitching on the material is immaculate, the zipper glides smoothly, and the clasp opens and closes without a hitch. The chain handle is also very sturdy, and gives the purse a really fun, unique look. I like that it has a clasp as well as a zipper, so items aren’t able to fall out. And while it doesn’t have an inner zip pocket, it fits my wallet, cell phone, and lip gloss perfectly. The color is also another hit because red is my favorite color, and I adore the ivory stripes! Of course, I can’t forget to mention the “B” keychain charm which stands for “Bolzano” but I can’t help but say it also stands for “Becca!” This purse was definitely a home run for me! (For size reference, I am 5’7″.)
“Go for it Girl” Card Case
This month I also received a card holder made out of a mystery material. It is beige and black with “Go for it Girl” in shimmery silver font. There are 3 pockets for credit cards, coupons, cash, and a driver’s license. The stitching on this piece is very neat, and it fits in my bag perfectly! They also sent a really sweet card printed on very heavy cardstock with words of positivity and a note stating that Bolzano is donating to The Down Syndrome Foundation this month!
How cute are these little gold round earrings? I really like how simple and fun these are, and that they match the purse! They have regular posts for the backs, fit comfortable, are light, and add just a little extra shine to any outfit!
Not only did we get cute earrings, but they also sent the matching necklace! I really do love gold jewelry, and I am really impressed with the fact that all of the items tie in together so well, and everything coordinates. I will definitely be wearing this piece a lot!
Havana in Love Eyeshadow Palette from Hankee Pankee Cosmetics – Free with a 3-month Lux subscription purchase
Bolzano kindly sent this “Havana in Love” eyeshadow palette from Hankee Pankee cosmetics to review, as it’s currently being offered for free with a three-month subscription purchase ($129.00) while supplies last. I’m here to answer any questions you may have about it! First of all, my son’s name is Hank, so I obviously love the name of the company. Because I have never heard of this company, I did a little digging, and couldn’t find out much information. That being said, I had to just jump in and check it out! This lovely pallet features 12 colors: 9 shimmers and 3 mattes. I noticed the lighter colors were a lot less pigmented than the darker shimmers. I did use this palette to create a smoky eye look in the photos where I am modeling the purse, and was pleased with the staying power. I just wish it would have included more information such as the ingredients and a little bit about the company.
The Verdict: I gotta say, I am a fan of the Bolzano box! This is the second purse I have received, and I really felt they looked at my profile and found a purse that they knew I would love. Everything about the purse is wonderful, and I am really amazed at the quality of it. While the accessories usually aren’t my favorite, this month I really liked them and appreciated how well they went with the purse itself. If you are in the market to up your accessory game on a budget, I 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 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 4 items, so you are paying about $10.98 an item.
