Last month I received my first ever Gambettes box and I adored it so I was excited for the October box to arrive which it did last week! Last month I received a pair of cute polkadot tights and a pair of gorgeous lace tights and while the October box isn’t quite as amazing as the September box, it’s still fantastic.
Each box arrives containing two pairs of tights, specifically chosen to fit with the current trends and are inspired by the chic streets of Paris for £13.90 per month. That’s only £6.95 per pair which I think for the quality is a really good price point, in my opinion. Additionally, they are delivered straight to your door!
The October box contained two pairs of tights, the ‘En coulisse’ and the ‘sur scene’ tights, the first has a mini scales pattern and are 50 denier in thickness/opacity; while the second pair are black fishnet tights which are 20 denier. I have both of the pairs in a medium which is a great size for me as I’m currently a UK 8/10. Both pairs are made in Italy, the quality is great and I love how they are packaged!
Let’s start with my least favourite, the Sur Scene black fishnet tights (20 denier). Ok, I don’t hate them but I don’t think they suit me but that’s one of the great things about this kind of subscription box is that you get to try products that you wouldn’t have otherwise and while, I probably won’t be wearing these very much (unless I want to freeze as it was one degree this morning), I will be using them for halloween looks – google it!
The ‘En coulisse’ black mini scales tights (50 denier) are definitely my favourites out of the two as they are much thicker and appropriate for autumn in northern England and I love the pattern. It’s different to the others I have which are either plain or have a distinct pattern as this one is quite subtle. They’re comfortable, soft and they fit really well for me although to be on the safe side, it might be best to size up for your first box or check out their fantastic size guide.
