Review: Baublebar

Just in time for the ball, I received my package from Baublebar. I purchased it but opted for a forwarding service so I could trial it instead of using their international shipping. I'll admit there wasn't any savings to using the forwarding service but this is ideal for shopping from websites that don't offer international shipping.

Baublebar generally offers a wide range of styles, perhaps most famous for how fashion savvy they are and consistently collaborate with celebrities, Youtubers, bloggers, designers and other individuals of note. When I saw the Phased Out Bangle Set from the Emma Roberts collaboration, I couldn't get my mind off of it and thought it would be a good birthday gift to myself. I don't normally spend that much money on costume jewellery either, so it was a little pricy for me.

I liked how the bangles could be snapped into place and the shape of them are great for people who have small wrists (which I don't have much of a problem with). I had high hopes for the bangles and was slightly disappointed when I received them. They looked much better on the website but that's thanks to great lighting and a good photographer. Nevertheless, the quality of the jewellery is good but I'd say you get average value for money here.

I admire Baublebar as a company, providing great customer service and implementing a loyalty program. They have stylists available to match pieces of jewellery to what your style is. They also have a strong social media presence.

Would I repurchase? Probably not. They don't cater many designs to my taste. However, if I ever come across another piece that I love and cannot get my mind off, I would buy from them again.
