My spring tote set from Gem La La has finally arrived! Gem La La is an affiliate of t+j designs. I discovered t+j designs from a necklace of the brand, that I received in a SocialBliss.com Style Box. A 10% off coupon was also in the Style Box and I bought 4 necklaces from their website: tandjdesigns.com …and I loved them all. So naturally when I received the email that they started the jewelry tote business Gem La La… I signed right up! I paid $119.99 for the 4 tote plan and saved 30% in doing so. Now every 3 months/ Season, I will receive 5 – 6 pieces of jewelry and accessories in an exclusively designed reusable tote. Here’s what was inside my first Gem La La package:
- 3 pairs of earrings (I only like the double pearl pair… and even so, I wish I got the pave` ones)
- 1 bracelet (this bracelet seems like something is missing on the ends… like cones or spikes. I really don’t like this bracelet… at all.)
- 3 statement necklaces (I only like the one on the far right with the rectangular gems… the other two are hideous to me… nothing I would ever wear!)
- “Ooh La La” Tote (mine came with a giant stain on it… Ewwww!)
This tote set cost me $30 and Gem La La claims you will get $200 worth of jewelry. I don’t think this even comes close to being worth $200. I’m not crazy about any of the pieces… I could live without all of them and will likely resell most of them on ebay. As for my stained tote… what a gross disappointment for my first set. They also emailed a teaser, that a pair of crystal winged earrings would be in the Spring Tote… I really wanted those and wish they’d kept their word on that. There are so many pieces of jewelry on t+j designs’ website that I love, which I haven’t bought, …in hopes that some would end up in my spring tote set. Sadly I was wrong… very wrong. I’m hoping the Summer tote delivers pieces that are more my style!
I give this Gem La La tote set 1 paw.
