Little Black Bag Review

 I have been subscribed to Little Black Bag since February, and just decided to show you my April bag so far.  I do have a few issues with the selection and shipping and tax...... While all of you don't get taxed , except us lucky ones in California  ( sarcasm in my voice) , plus shipping cost, the $49.99 LBB ends up costing Californians $60 bucks!! ( GRRRRR)   Most of the items are older products, so yes you could shop TJ Maxx, Ross, Marshalls for the same discount, probably even more.  I don't usually shop at those stores. No particular reason, I just don't.  So I think this is a good idea , but still have reserves on it.
$60.00 every month for a subscription is not cheap, but you can skip months if you like.  Also they have new stuff everyone Monday , as from my own personal experience I notice.

 Comes wrapped in black tissue paper, and you can exchange your items if you are not happy with them, which I should have done with a few products from my Feb bag but didn't and threw away the slip... My Bad.

 The trading does get kind of addicting and fun, I mean some people  turn their  3 or 4 items into 9 and 10 items , I have even seen someone have 18 items, and half of them were like $60.00 and over items. That is insane to me.  But good for her and her trading skills.   So here is what I got for my April bag,  a BCBGeneration glitter crossbody bag ( annoyed glitter goes everywhere) , and a pair of  Betsey Johnson sunglasses, which I love, and in my opinion , one can never have too many sun glasses.

 This bag is on Zappos site for clearance already, and I have no clue about the sunglasses, but I am sure the same on them too.

 Make sure you pick an item that you wouldn't mind paying $60 bucks for , and yes I say 60 because that again is what I have to pay.

I wish LBB would give free shipping to californians to off set the tax and maybe if you buy more then 1 bag a month, you get a discount on additional bags..

Have you got LBB yet??  What are your thoughts?
