When I found that Fancy was offering free shipping on Mystery Boxes I figured it was the perfect time to give them a try. I purchased a Women's Medium Box for $20 and was pretty happy with what I received. Mystery Boxes are available in three sizes, $10 for small, $20 for medium, and $40 for a large, both are also available in men's or women's boxes. I don't believe that the larger boxes have more items, I think the value of the individual items just increases with the box's "size."
When I first picked up my box I noticed that it was surprisingly light, and I felt a bit disappointed because I expected it to have a heftier weight. This disappointment clouded my judgment a bit with the initial unboxing and I felt underwhelmed. But after I actually considered the items a bit more I decided that this was a pretty good box for a mystery box, and that it had a great value.
- The Fancy Wayfarers ($30) - Unfortunately I have terrible eyesight so I need to wear my contacts if I want to wear sunglasses other than my prescription pair, and I'm currently out of contacts. I'm going to make it a point to schedule an eye exam though so I can start wearing cute pairs like these! I love the wayfarer style and the tortoiseshell coloring is fun, too.
- Sophie Sparrow Shark Tooth Necklace ($60) - When I saw the little bag in my box I knew it contained jewelry and I was hoping that it was a necklace. I don't really wear rings and could care less about earrings, so I was very happy to receive this shark tooth necklace. It's definitely my style and I love it!
- Bib & Tuck Lip Balm - I have no idea what the retail value of this lip balm is, but I'm guessing anywhere from $3-$5. It doesn't really matter to me, though, because I have a ton of lip balms already. Normally I like getting more, but I know nothing about this brand and couldn't find anything about it online, so I'm guessing it's probably not made from natural ingredients. I've posted it for swap.
- ncLA Designer Nail Wraps ($16) - I've used these before and I don't like them. I received a pack from Little Black Bag a while ago and I found that they didn't apply well and looked really cheap. At first I thought that maybe the pattern on my first pair was an exception, but after looking at these I think that all ncLA nail wraps are printed with the same poor quality. I've also posted these for swap.
Bottom Line: I liked and will use two out of the four items in my Mystery Box, which had a total value of $106 (not including the lip balm). I would probably use the lip balm, too, if I didn't already have a ton of them. Not a bad deal for only $20! If you're interested in picking up a Mystery Box, you can do so by clicking here.
