Epic Little Black Bag Haul

11 Jun

This is my third and most amazing haul to date from Little Black Bag. I’ve been a tiddle bit addicted to that website lately. If you’re unfamiliar with Little Black Bag, please take a look at my review of the service here.  To give you a brief synopsis: You are given 3 to 4 items and you have 7 days to trade them with other members of the site, and when you’re happy with your bag, you can ship it. There is no limit to the number of items or value you can potentially accrue in your bag. 

Little Black Bag haul:

Betsey Johnson Blue Crystal Drop Earrings

Betsey Johnson Rose Studs

Betsey Johnson Polka Dot Double Heart Drop Earrings

Carol Duplaise Multi Row Chain Pearl Braclet

Disney Couture Rose Gold Hoop Earrings

I loveeee that the stones in the hoops are pink!

Disney Couture Pink Ribbon Crystal Necklace

All the Disney Couture comes in a silk pouch like this

Steve Madden Rose Gold Aviators

One of the lenses has two deep scratches :(

All the Rage Ivory 4 Stone Bangle

BCBGMAXAZRIA Pink Ribbon Watch

Kenneth Cole New York Pebbled Metal Bangle Watch

Big Buddha Embossed Ostrich Shoulder Bag

Latch in closed position

Latch in open position

The retail value of everything in my bag was an impressive $540. The BCBG watch alone retails for $85, which is way more than the cost of the entire bag.

The only thing I don’t like are the Steve Madden Rose Gold Aviators and those are what I opened my bag with surprisingly enough. They feel super cheap, like dollar store sunglasses. And mine arrived with two deep scratches in the left lense. Everything else is amazeballs.

If you want to check out the service, go to www.LittleBlackBag.com and start your bag. You don’t get charged until your bag ships, you have 7 days to trade and you have 5 days to cancel.

    You weren’t kidding when you said Epic haul! I’m really impressed with LBB but need to resist it but it’s getting hard to seeing how much awesome stuff they offer. Those Betsey Johnson Rose earrings are super cute :)

    What an amazing haul!!! I’m so jealous. I’m not very good at the trading part of it all. I’ve only gotten one bag from them. When I see something amazing on their website that i have to have I will open another one. But I need some tips from you LOL

    • Chelsey June 11, 2012 at 8:45 pm #

      Lol I swear it gets easier the more you do it! And I had a mega advantage with this bag because I opened with 8 items. One of the tricks I do though is trade each individual item up as far you can, then accept multiple item trades for it to trade up and get more stuff in your bag. If something isn’t trading up, then either trade sideways (for stuff of the same value) or trade down to something that trades better.

        Thanks for the tips. :)

    Im super jealous. I’m pretty sure we closed our bags on he same day and mine has not even shipped yet. I also did my third bag and it’s amazing how much easier it gets ith some practice to get an amazing haul. awesome job.

    • Chelsey June 11, 2012 at 8:43 pm #

      oh wow, that’s crappy! I would call them and make sure nothing in your bag was out of stock. I’ve heard that happens sometimes and it can hold up shipping. Hope you get it soon tho!

    what an amazing haul! lucky :)

    I’m so jealous! My 1st bag is suppose to arrive tomorrow, I can’t wait! I’m hoping the color of the bag is what I want, really nervous about that. I went nuts the last 9 hours or so when I looked at the measurements of the earrings I picked and saw they were way longer than I would wear. So it was a mad rush to trade ’em quick, so I landed up going from 4 items to 2 items. Hoping I like the BJ cat earrings and MB bag I landed up with. The trading is addictive and fun. I want to open another bag before the month is up :) I’d call ’em about the glasses, I hear customer service is good.

    • Chelsey June 13, 2012 at 3:43 pm #

      WOOHOO I hope you enjoy your first bag :) I did contact customer service about it and I sent off my return package. They’re giving me an exchange credit for my next bag.

    How were you able to start with so many items?

    • Chelsey June 13, 2012 at 3:42 pm #

      I had two extra from a referral credit and coupon code, then I picked a lesser valued item ($36 aviators) to open my bag with so it automatically generated a bunch of items into my bag to reach the $100 minimum bag value.

    I wanted that buddha bag so bad when I was looking on the site debating if I wanted to start the service. I just can’t spend the money yet :/

    Such a great haul and deal!

      Thanks!!! If you open with a cheaper item you will typically get more items in your bag. It works great if you have the time to trade up throughout your 7 days :) I am SO addicted to the Betsey jewelry now too. They’re all SO CUTE!

    I just opened my FIRST EVER little black bag tonight and am super excited! Very envious of your LBB skills, still trying to get the hang of things but your tips/tricks have helped! Love your blog!

    • Chelsey August 1, 2012 at 3:36 pm #

      YAY!!! How do you like it so far? I remember being sooo nervous when I opened my first bag lol. I was scared to trade anything in fear of messing up.

      • Kendra August 1, 2012 at 4:20 pm #

        That’s exactly how I feel! Lol. But it’s still an awesome idea!!

  14. Liliya August 1, 2012 at 3:33 pm #

    How do you manage to get so many things? do you have any tricks how to trade?

    • Chelsey August 1, 2012 at 3:42 pm #

      I spend the first few days trading all of my items up up up and accepting the most trade-able double offers I get. Then trading those items up up up. It takes a lot of time, patience and persistence but it pays off!

    Hi the Madden Rose gold Aviators. Do you still have them? if so can you provide the model #? I had a pair and have been looking for another one for quite some time now….thank you!
