ModCloth Stylish Surprise: Spring 2017

Typically, I can't stand surprises. I am a proud control freak, and I like knowing what I am getting myself into. I am able to put all of that aside however when it comes to ModCloth's Stylish Surprise. Stylish Surprise allows you to select your size for either apparel, dresses, shoes, or accessories. The catch is you don't know what you are going to ultimately going to receive. It will be a complete surprise! This time around they also added home decor into the mix. I love that ModCloth does this, and it actually is a cool way to refresh your wardrobe. 

My box arrived in the mail a little over 2 weeks ago, and I am just now getting around to reviewing it. I know, bad blogger. I've been so busy with work and life, and I could not motivate myself to try these pieces on. I mean, I could barely pull it together enough to wear anything other than a t-shirt and leggings.

Stylish Surprise can be a total hit or miss, and it's always a bummer when some fugly clothes arrive. Last time I tried this I received a sweater that wasn't really my taste, and I was a bit disappointed. I am choosing to stay positive though. This is a mystery grab bag type of situation, so there really is no point in getting upset. My sister ended up loving the sweater in the end, so it really was money well spent. I ordered two apparel items this time around, and I could not wait to see what they sent me!

The first item I received is a black and white skull cardigan from the brand Hell Bunny. First of all, I find the name Hell Bunny hilarious. The cardigan is definitely right up my alley with the colors, and I love skulls. Unfortunately, the cardigan doesn't fit my broad shoulders or long torso. It fits really snug in the shoulders, and I could see this driving me crazy if I ever tried to wear it. I tried to find the cardigan on the ModCloth website, but I had no luck. I was able to find it here if you are interested in purchasing it. The sweater retails for around $58 from what I found online, so it is definitely a steal considering the $15 I paid for it. I already passed this along to my sister, and she loves it. It fits her way better than me!

The second item they sent me is blue capped sleeve blouse that features a bow from the ModCloth brand. This is something that I would never purchase for myself because of how I am allergic to capped sleeves, but I actually like how this blouse looks on me. The blue shade is feminine and perfect for spring, and the bow is a girly touch. I still don't like how the sleeves look on my arms, but this top will be cute with a cardigan or blazer. The only thing that might be a bit of a negative with this top is that it seems to wrinkle easily. I'll definitely need to iron this bad boy! I was also unable to find this top on the website, but I found a similar one that you can purchase here. I can't find this blouse online to figure out the retail value, but I think it's easy to see that it is worth way more than $15.

Overall, I am happy with what I got. I am disappointed that the cardigan didn't fit, but the blouse makes up for it. Plus, it's always fun to be able to pass something onto my sister. I have been looking on Instagram to see what other people received, and I have to admit that I am a tad bit jealous. Some people received some really gorgeous pieces. I will definitely try this again the next time around, and I might even try to snag one of the dress Stylish Surprises or maybe even a home decor one! Screw it, I might just grab one of each and see what happens...

Until next time! Xo
