The Arrival of My First LBB

Hey Girls,

Last week, I told you about a new subscription service I had joined, Little Black Bag.

Read more about it here:

Anyway, my first bag arrived, and there were some pleasant surprises and some products that were a little lackluster.

I got four products in my bag.  The first was my must-have item, a NYLA Star necklace.

When I first opened it, I was disappointed.  I am not sure what I was expecting, but it is tiny.  Super small.  However, after wearing it for a few days, I love it.  It pairs perfectly with other gold jewelry, and every time I see it in the mirror, I am reminded of how pretty it is.  You can also see it in the headband picture below.


According to LBB, this retails for $88.

My second item is a scarf by BRIANNEFAYE.  I don't love it, but I do think it adds a nice pop of color to an outfit.

LBB retail value: $32

My third item is a really cute headband by Pink Pewter.  I LOVE this.  I liked it on the website, but when it arrived, I fell in love.  It is really cute and is such an easy way to jazz up a blah hair day. 

Here is a pic of me wearing it at work.  My hair is lazily pulled back, and I still love the look.  Thanks, headband!
Sorry for the weird angle.  I wanted you guys to see the pretty headband!


LBB retail value: $23

Finally, I got something that totally surprised me.  These hoop earrings by Robert Rose turned out to be my favorite thing in the bag, and they were the item I wanted the least.  They are so cute on, and I have received a ton of compliments.


LBB retail value: $20

Overall thoughts, I am pleased with my first LBB.  I probably would not have purchased any of these items if I had seem them out in a department store, so it is a great way to try new things.

My sister also did LBB last month and was disappointed with the quality of the mechandise (especially handbags) she got.  We are both trying again this month, and I am getting a purse.  I will keep you posted.

Talk Soon,

T.
