Once Upon a Bookcase – October 2016

The October Once Upon a Bookcase is absolutely perfect for upcoming Halloween and is the first time they’ve done an absolutely exclusive case to the box!

This month’s phone case was an exclusive design to subscribers, featuring a brand new print inspired by Wicked.  I was really surprised to see such a unique and modern design with one of their cases!  I’ve loved the last dozen cases I’ve received but this one is just so different, it stands out from the rest of my collection with ease.

Also included was a necklace inspired by Elphaba with a green stone and spikes set in a silver metal.  I’m trying to figure out an outfit I can easily throw this on and make it work but so far, I haven’t quite found it yet.  Working on it though!  It’s super cute and I definitely want to show it off!

There was also a teal scarf for hair, purses, or the traditional use.  It’s really cute but a bit simple for my tastes.  I have quite a lot of scarves already so it’s probably just me, but I definitely think it’s cute!  Just not something I think I’ll wear.

Finally, the cutest freaking pen ever – a broomstick!  It’s so precious and I’m gonna use it for everything (well, not everything cause I don’t want to waste it too soon, but) I am going to be using this really regularly.  Plus, let’s be honest, I’m a nerd for anything that I can associate with Harry Potter, and it can easily be done with this.

This whole box was adorable, but there were just some pieces I didn’t quite click with.  I really loved the phone case and pen but the scarf and necklace just didn’t quite work for me.  I’ve always been so pleased with these boxes though, one meh box is not going to deter me!  I can’t wait to see what next month’s beautiful case is!
