My First Little Black Bag

Yay!
 I have not gotten a new bag in almost 3 years. I am not sure why. I guess I would rather buy other things....? Who really knows and who really cares? Not you, I am sure! lol! Needless to say, I needed a new bag.

Little Black Bag: (def.) 
a monthly subscription service. You can choose a name brand bag, accessory, jewelry item, or beauty item. Check out. You receive 2 more things in your bag. You can trade these things with other people. You have 8 days to trade starting at the beginning of the month. There are a couple different ways to trade. I talked about how to do exactly that in my video. 

You pay $49.90 a month, every month for 6 months. Or, you can choose to pay around $60 1x. However, you can cancel at any time. That is why I signed up for the 6 months. If you choose to do the 6 months, remember to cancel! Easy as that! I wish I could afford a brand new bag every month + more, but I cant! I am still debating on staying for Oct. because my birthday's on the 8th. I don't know. Still undecided.

BCBGeneration - Corey Striped Tote
$88 retail value
This was my first pick. I had my eye on it for the whole week. Not looking back, I clicked to check out and I could have kicked myself because there was a gorgeous mint satchel I would have wanted even more! I tried to trade it but every person I asked or tried to trade with wasn't going for it! Damn! All and all, I did choose this out of anything I seen in the gallery the first time so I am happy with it. 

Tip #1. Wait as long as you can to even check out to see if they update the Gallery before trading is over.



It is a nice structured bag and I have a feeling it will last a long time. It has a lot of room! It will never feel crowded and unlike other bags this size, you can find anything in it at anytime. I hate that about other bags, when you feel like your bag is a never ending black hole and sucks all of your belongings into it, never to be found again. I think this is probably due to the fact that it is so structured. Has a zippered pocket on 1 side and 2 open pockets on the other. 1 for your phone. Or you can use it for mints, gum, and lotion. Another pocket for lipsticks. Clearly.




Then I got jewelry!


All the Rage - Pyramid Stud Earrings 
$20 retail value
This was something I was traded. When it comes to trading jewelry and smaller things, that part seemed to be a lot easier. I have barely no gold jewelry and I thought these were a good jumping off point to start negotiations! Luckily, I didn't want to negotiate anymore and I got exactly what I wanted with these earrings! They have these in silver too, btw. They don't weigh down my ear, and are both classic and edgy if you ask me! So cute!



ZAD - Feather Necklace 
$16 estimated retail value
I can't find the retail value anywhere online and they don't offer it on the site anymore! They had another style feather necklace from the same brand, Zad, at $16 retail value. I thought this would go perfect with the Pyramid Stud Earrings. This also was exactly what I wanted to trade, so I was a happy camper! Although on the site, it showed the necklace fit really long on the manikin, going past the boobies. In real life, it fits much smaller. I was happy to find out it fit much smaller than expected. I like shorter necklaces, anyway. Just be sure to do some research, search some blogs, and find some pictures of the item on Google if your not sure if something is true to size on Little Black Bag. 



total retail value $124
I paid: $49.90

Final Verdict: 
So Much Fun! I am hooked! I wish I could afford every month, but I know next time I am in the market for a new bag, I most likely will only order from Little Black Bag. How can you beat $50 including shipping for 3 items totaling out to $124? You really can't. Unless you find a good sale. Then if you do, tweet me about it! Like I mentioned before, you may cancel any time before the bag ships. That means if your in trading still and your not happy with your bag, cancel it right then and there! It also shipped on time. Another plus.

If your interested in joining, I have an invite link for you! If you use it, I get an extra item in my bag for the next month to trade! Then you can invite others, and get something free too! Happy Days!

thank you for reading!
