Disclaimer: This is by no mean sponsored and it is my true thought on the product.
Redbird is two vintage-loving sisters (Sarah & Karen) behind the scenes styling and putting together boxes. One day they hope to have a whole vintage-loving team but in the meantime they need to limit the amount of subscriptions they carry.
They have two different sizes on boxes. The Marie Accessory Box, 50 dollars a month, and it includes 4 authentic vintage accessories. The Lorene, 100 dollar a month, and it includes 6 authentic vintage accessories and/or clothing items.
They also have pre-made boxes that are a bit less expensive.
I myself would want to say they are vintage matchmakers. When you subscribe you do a personal test and answer questions about what style you like, era, colors etc. And from that information they pick out things that would fit just you and your taste.
I was extremely skeptical that this would work. I know i have a very picky taste. Or at least I wanted to think so. And that no one could find things for me.
But most of reviews I have seen seemed positive. But again I couldn’t say they got things I really wanted myself. So maybe it was because we don’t have the same taste.
But my curiosity took over and i needed to find out about it. So i was one the “waiting list” for awhile. And finally I got a chance to try it out.
Considering it was my birthday, 22 September, I got super excited and thought it felt like a small birthday gift for myself.
Then the package came, 28 September. I was super excited really and after opening it, I was shaking. I was so happy with legit everything I got. I was very clear in what I liked and didn’t like. So I think the more clear you are on what you want, the happier you will be with the result.
I know myself as a librarian its hard to hit a home run when someone just asks for something good. We all have different aspects on what makes a good book. So the more information on what you like the easier it is for us to find something just for you.

And now for we all been waiting for; my goods!
I’m a person who like these colors on myself. I cant do screaming bright colors, I mean I can. But I feel very pale in them.
So these are my colors, or the ones that works for me. And in jewelry i’m more a gold person than a silver. Again because silver makes me look pale.
I’m also a BIG fan of Christmas. This is not for the present but for the family gatherings and traditions. I’m a big family oriented person!
All this I told Redbird and they hit a home run in everything they sent me!
Now for the goods I got:
I got 3 brooches; look at that xmas tree. It made me almost tear up inside. It looks like a brooch my mom had when I was a kid. I wanted it so bad and then she drooped it. The other two are just as beautiful in my colors and everything.
Then I got 2 necklaces one gold with white pearls and one gold and orange. The white pealed one I requested on their Instagram and they gave it to me! I was so happy I made a small dance.
As a quick note, they do wash all their clothes before sending them out. So everything is in top notch when you do get them.
I got a black dress that fit me so perfectly, it gets my cats hair all over it. But every girl need that one black dress. I matched this one up with a red knitted shirt and a puffy white petticoat.
Then I also had 2 shirts, when more fancy in white and gold buttons. And one more daytime in a beige, brown and green color. Many said they didn’t like the second one as much. But I really do. I’m very earthy in my colors and it fits so perfect with a brown or green skirt.
I also got a handbag. It was probably my least favorite one. This does not mean I don’t like it. I just, I think its rather flashy for my. Nothing I could use in my daily life and I do get a small 80’s feeling to it. I will wear it next when i go out tho.
And to top it off, I got a 100% silk scarf with a Christmas motive.
And some pictures of me wearing some of the things. I hope you have time to check Redbird out. They are and have been amazing to me in everything they have sent and the service. I heard they will take on more subscribers on 1 November. So consider looking into them until then! If you love vintage you will love this box. Its everything and more.
