A few times a year Modcloth, an online vintage clothing retailer, offers a “stylish surprise”. I’m a sub box fanatic and I’ve been wanting to try out this mystery bag for a while. When it went on sale in August I snapped up three mystery items. Lets dive in.
Whisker Sweet Nothings Top $11.99 (regularly $24.99)
This wasn’t part of the stylish surprise, but it’s too cute not to share! This Rise + Fall cat tank went on sale for $11.99 so I couldn’t say no. I have no will power, what can I say? This is a cotton poly blend and is the purrr-fect tank for a cat lady like me.
Nanette Lepore Scarlet D’Orsay Heels in Dusty Pink – Mystery Shoes – $10
I was hoping for boots to be honest but these shoes are cute! The only problem is that the size 6.5 is much too big for my feet. I find that bizarre as I can often fit a size 7 but these are still a half size too big. This pair can be found at Nordstrom Rack and Amazon for $89, but they can also be found on sale anywhere from $22 – $50 depending on where you look. I gave these to my Mom, she was thrilled with them.
Blu Pepper Top – Mystery Top – $15
I think I would like this top a lot more if the material wasn’t so thin. I need another layer underneath if it’s to be worn out anywhere, and I’d rather layer over a top than under it. Does that make sense? I’m still not sure what I’m going to do with this one.
Fun 2 Fun Top
This top is billowy like a maternity top and the pleats start high on the chest so if you have a fuller chest this will accentuate in all the wrong ways. I’ve been wearing this with a chunky infinity scarf and cardigan sweater to tone down the look of the pleats. I still feel like I’m drowning in material.
I’m disappointed in my Modcloth Stylish Surprise. The only thing I really liked was the shoes and they don’t fit! I guess I’ll take this as a reminder to spend my money a bit more wisely and pick out sale items I like for the same price next time!
