I was so excited to day to receive my first "Little Black Bag" in the mail today. I just started my subscription this month and am loving it already! For those of you who have never heard of "Little Black Bag" it is basically a type of monthly subscription which is a fun shopping experience. Here is how it works
Each month you receive a box in the mail.
The box contains one item you pick (which you go to their website and choose your first item from a huge selection of designers such as Steve Madden, Betsy Johnson, Badgley Mischka, BCBGeneration any many more designers.
They then place two more items in your bag that they choose. You are always able to see what is in your bag online. So basically if you do not care for the items that they put in your bag you spend the month swapping and trading with other ladies on line. It is really a fun experience! If you want to learn more about the subscription you can go to the website at: www.littleblackbag.com
The concept is loosely based on a Japanese tradition in which retailers sell mystery bags to their customers. So basically a group of friends would go to the store and purchase a mystery bag. They would all then go out to lunch with their bags and then open them. They would then swap and trade their items and have a great time!
SO WHAT WAS IN MY LITTLE BLACK BAG FOR THIS MONTH:
Large BCBGeneration Tote (This was the item I chose): Retails for $88.00
Spring Street Wood & Chain Tassel Earrings: Retails for $18.00
NCLA Nail Lacquer in Venice Beach Vixen: Retails for $16.00
So all in all I am very happy with my first bag. Now the fun starts all over. It is time for me to go pick another item. The subscription in $49.00 per month. Which is not bad when you look at what I would have paid if I purchased them on my own retail.
Also what I love about this subscription is that you don't have to do it each month. If you don't want to participate one month just easily decline your subscription that month online. Or if you want to send your months subscription to someone else for that month, they allow you to do that. This is great when you have a birthday gift you need to give someone.
Hope you all have been having a great week so far!
