Lace Black Panty (Thong Cut)

Va-va-voom! This black panty from Spree is both sweet and seductive. The delicate lace floral design is super flattering and very feminine. I’m a big fan of the material too, which is soft and comfortable for all-day wear. This thong cut dares to bare all on the backside, so get ready to show some skin. ;)

Crisscross Lace Panty (Cheeky Cut)

The Crisscross Lace Panty has a very unique look. The garment features a grey and pink crisscross pattern that’s accented by cream-colored lace. The lovely lace trim also borders the waistband and leg openings. My favorite part of this panty is the charming rose detail at the front center. The Cheeky Cut shows just a little bit on the back.

Halloween Panty (Thong Cut)

I was totally hoping that Splendies included a themed panty to celebrate Halloween! This fun, spooky garment from Love Libby features a sheer black material with playful orange polka dots. The cute orange accent bows and orange ruffled trim add a nice touch too. This festive panty will definitely help you get into the Halloween spirit.

verdict

I was definitely pleased with my October shipment from Splendies. The Halloween Panty was very festive and fun. My favorite item from this month’s collection is the Black Lace Panty because it has a very classic, sexy look. This subscription box is an incredible value and you just can’t find panties at this price and quality anywhere else. Trust me, I’ve looked! Do you love these cute panties too?

NOTE: A regular Jewelry Subscription box will include one trendy accessory each month. For review purposes, I received three pieces of jewelry to show the range of looks and styles available from Jewelry Subscription.

Silver Cuff Bracelet 

This gorgeous silver cuff bracelet will add some major style to any outfit. The cuff is adjustable too, which makes sizing easy. I really like the lovely filigree pattern in the two bands which gives this accessory some classic, old world flair.

Silver Leaf Necklace

How pretty is this delicate, fall-inspired silver leaf necklace? I love the mix of thin leaf shapes and multiple stands of silver chains. This piece has an awesome layered look that makes it a stand-out piece. Wear this necklace with a simple black shirt for an eye-catching effect.

Owl Earrings

These earrings are so much fun! This statement piece is super quirky and I like the bold owl design. The multi-colored gem stones are really vibrant and add a nice pop of color against the brass earrings. Pair this accessory with a bohemian-inspired dress for a cool, hip look.

verdict

The featured accessories from Jewelry Subscription definitely exceeded my expectations. Each high-quality piece could be paired with a number of different outfits. My favorite accessory is the silver cuff bracelet because it has a more classic look and it fits my style the best. Jewelry Subscription makes it easy to stay on trend and I can’t wait to see what’s delivered next.
