July 2012 Little Black Bag My First!

**Update Little Black Bag merged with Pose in May 2014 and is now operating under the name Pose. I have since cancelled because I do no agree with the new policies that have been put in place.

Okay so if you guys remember I finally gave in and joined Little Black Bag and now my very first bag is here and it arrived a full day early! Lucky for me my mail guy knows how to get my attention because our doorbell is hidden.. long story.

Okay so it's cool but what is it exactly? Glad you asked here is the quick run down on what to do and how it works.
Sign up and take the style quiz, its' super easy and fun. Then pick an item from the gallery that you love no matter the price and add it to your bag. Once in your bag you'll be matched with some other products based on your style quiz results. Purchase your bag to reveal these items and start trading!  You can trade until your happy with or bag or for 7 days whichever comes first and you always have the option to ship your bag at any time.

Little Black Bag currently offers Handbags, Jewelry, Accessories, Beauty and Home products so there's something for everyone. It's $49.95 + $5.95 shipping for a monthly subscription or purchase one bag for $59.95 + $5.95 shipping.


Now that you know what it is lets get into this haul at the end of my 7 days of trading I ended up with
Nila Anthony Turquoise Doctor Bag - Retail value $80
Seed Bead Necklace in Yellow - Retail value $32
Ali Khan Skull Ring - Retail value $35
Betsey Johnson Rose Gold Bow Ring - Retail value $45
Betsey Johnson Blue Two Row Flower & Bow necklace - Retail value $45 
Bonus for July - Redken Hair Product
That's $237 retail value for this bag I only paid $53.72 I used FACEBOOK10 for 10% off this bag and I had a free item from my Klout perk.
Sadly I will be exchanging for credit my main pick the Nila Anthony bag because it has this warning on it from the manufacturer stating that "The materials in the manufacturing of this product might contain chemicals known to the state of California to cause birth defects or other reproductive harm". That was not disclosed on their website had I known I would have picked a different bag. I know its not a really big deal but I'm just not comfortable keeping it because of that. It's really too bad because the bag is super cute but I will say it is a bit more green in person than it is on the website. I already emailed customer service about this and they were super nice and understanding and have helped me with the exchange process all I have to do is ship it back to them.

As for the rest of my picks I really like them, the Bow ring is fantastic I'm glad I traded my butt off to get it lol. The necklaces are really nice too and I finally have a seed bead necklace and it's not black lookie there! ;)

Also if your on Makeup Talk there is a Little Black Bag group come hang out with other addicts and check out pictures of the products we have all received.

What do you guys think about my first Little Black Bag?

  3. I adore the bag, the yellow necklace and the bow ring! I know it's a great deal, but it is still a big chunk of money, especially for someone who is trying to save ;p

    1. I totally understand that is honestly what kept me away from it for so long was the price. Overall tho if you do do it you get a great deal even if you only pick up a few items they also offer skip a month feature. :)

  7. Nice! Seems like a pretty good deal. It's so annoying when they have to use harmful chemicals in stuff, good that you're not keeping it around.

  12. Um amazing, I love the yellow necklace and the bow ring, they are just too cute! That is too bad about the bag though, so weird they weren't up front about it in the beginning. At least you get to exchange it.

  13. WHAT? YOU GOT ALL THAT!!! OMG Girl! You did GREAT! All these items are fantastic, the bag is nice too! I am going to check out this service. As for the LUSH products, I am sort of surprised you didn't like the packaging. It has an eye drop lap experimentation feel :)

  18. Thanks for doing this review, Ashley! I have been wondering how LBB works, and it's super easy thanks to your explanation! I really like the skull ring and the neckalces and the color of the purse you got, but I would trade it in a heartbeat too after reading the warning! You'd think they'd not even include that if that warning had been read, huh?

  21. Wow, that warning is pretty terrifying. Why would a company need to use a chemical that can cause so much harm for a bag? That is just mind-boggling. And it's a shame because this bag is so, so cute! I read this post a few days ago and came back to it again today because I am that intrigued by this Little Black Bag subscription program. I love the trading aspect and I think I'll have to give it a test run.

    1. It really is, I did end up sending this bag back because of it too. LBB was great about it they gave me exchange credit so when I opened a new bag I had that added value to it from the exchange. They do that will all exchanges. Honestly I love LBB they really are the most unique subscription I've tried and once you get the hang of trading you can come away with some really great stuff.

      Now they offer a $49 bag with 7 days of trading worth retail of at least $100 (like this one) or a $29 bag with 3 days of trading worth at least a retail of $75. They are adding new items 4 times a week now too so there is always new stuff on there. If your going to sign up check out there FB page for then new member promo code. OR if you join now they have a birthday promo going on and you get an extra $20 worth of merch in your bag on them.
