That’s right folks it is time again for my least costly and arguably most fun subscription, Ear Fleek. For those who don’t know, Ear Fleek is a monthly subscription where for $3.49 you are mailed one pair of earrings guaranteed to be nickel free.
I have to say as a subscription service, I have never had any problems with them. They bill on the 15th of the month and mail out the same day. In this case the 15th was a Sunday so they mailed on the 16th and arrived here on the 20th.
This month’s selection is a nice set of dangles that have a simple black disk circular pattern. I can’t say that I would actually have chosen them myself if I were in a store, but I like the way they swing from my earlobes, especially when I wear my hair up. These are not earrings I can wear with my hair down as my hair would et all tangled in them and ruin any effect they were supposed to have.
While I wouldn’t have picked them out at first glance, I do like them and will more than likely wear them. I wear a lot of black so the disk color is actually perfect for me. To be honest, I think that is one of the reasons that I really like this subscription. For very little money I can try out earrings I may not have actually chosen for myself and most times, I actually like them. In fact I don’t think I’ve actually gotten a pair of earrings from this subscription that I wouldn’t wear.
I chose the subscription category of ‘I don’t give a hoot’ letting them chose my earrings randomly instead of sticking to a specific category specifically because I wanted to be surprised and push myself out of my comfort zone at least a little. My thoughts are always, since I paid for them I might as well wear them at least once. Then after wearing them I generally like them so its a win.
I was worried that I would get a solely holiday earrings as it is December. I don’t really have a problem with Holiday earrings but the subscription does tend to come towards the end of the month which would give me a limited time to wear them. This way I get to wear them more.
In my end of year evaluation of my various subscription services, I can definitely declare that this is one I plan to keep in the new year. If you are interested in building your everyday earring collection, I’d suggest giving them a try. They have several categories to choose from whether you are in the categories of minimalist or more fun and funky. With the low subscription price, it is hard not to like Ear Fleek.
