Modcloth's Stylish Surprise 2016
For shoes I received:
Down and Desert-y Flats - I probably would not have picked these out for myself but they will be good for knocking about in. They retail at $29.99 so not to bad a buy.
Lucky Penny Bootie in Pebble - These will be great for the winter so I will put them away until then. They're leather and retail for $139.99 so a steal at $10
Abroad Boots - These remind me of riding boots. I have some great outfits in mind using these as long as the weather gets cold enough here this winter. They retail at $159.99 so another steal for $10.
So Wrapped Up Sandals - I love the cut out on the these sandals but I'm not a fan of the wrap lace style so I think I will cut them down to just an ankle tie but they will definitely be worn this summer. They normally retail at $24.99 so $10 isn't bad.
In dresses I got:
Always in Style dress - I can see this simple jersey dress will be getting a lot of wear from me. It is so easy to dress up or down and accessorize in a number of different ways. This dress originally sold for $49.99 so the $20 I paid for it isn't bad.
Chantilly Dream Dress - When I pulled this dress out of the box I wasn't very impressed however it looks a lot better on. It needs a belt though. This dress normally retails at $64.99 so for just $20 I'm pretty happy.
Start with Sophistication Dress in Black - This dress is lovely but sadly too small for me. I think it would have been a little on the short side compared to what I like to wear anyway so I' going to give this one away. This one originally retailed at $54.99 so I got a good deal on it.
So all in all not a bad haul. Not my best but there are definately some items I will wear. Will I do the next Stylish Surprise sale? Of course! I dream of the day I open my order and see a Miss L Fire or Swedish Hasbeens box peaking out or a print I recognise from Tatyana or Bernie Dexter. Hey a girl can dream cant she?!
