February Little Black Bag

Little Black Bag  is a subscription service with a twist:  after you place your order, you can trade items with other buyers. And trading is half the fun! Received my $29.95 bag a few days ago that closed at the end of February, as shipping was crazy slow. I like that you choose your first item, then get 1-3 surprise items added to your bag that you can either keep or trade! I love surprises!

Here is the box I received. Pretty big considering I only had four pairs of earrings! Guess LBB has never heard of shipping envelopes?

Here are my goodies! Like I said, a pretty big box for four little pairs of earrings. *L*


Kenneth Jay Lane Disk Drop earrings. Wanted to show the difference between the picture on the site and in real life. Pretty similar looking, and the earrings are nice & solid but not too heavy.


Punch Multi Chain Bead Drop earrings. These are the earrings I opened my box with and although I traded them away at one point, I eventually traded back for them as I couldn't get them out of my head. Love the look of them, but they feel much too heavy. Was going to return them but with LBB's new return policy, decided to keep them instead. Thinking about cutting off the chains to remove some of the weight. Will change the overall look, but think they'll still look awesome!


Love Nail Tree Basket Weave earrings. Thought these would be flexible, but they're solid and unmoving. Still a cool design and think these are on their way to becoming one of my favorites!
By Philippe Protective Eye Hoop earrings. No matter how many pictures I took, I simply could not get a decent shot of these IRL. Saw these on someones unwrapping video and fell in love. Really like the whole evil eye theme. Tried to trade for the silver pair as I don't usually wear gold, but no luck. No matter, as these are cute enough that I'll wear them anyway! 

Because of the accidental cancellation of my original box (Hiccup with LBB), I had two experiences with trading on Little Black Bag and got most of it out of my system. Had planned on opening a new bag next month (so long as they had something I was interested in), but am going to hold off due to all of the changes that are taking place. It's all a little confusing, so am going to take a wait and see approach for now. Have been keeping an eye on some of the discussions going on about the new change, and I think it's going to be messy until they sort everything out....
