Last week, I saw that ModCloth had another Stylish Surprise offer so of course I took advantage of it. I got a dress and an apparel item, which I assumed would be a top but this time it was a skirt.
I'm aways so nervous opening up the package. What will be inside? That's what I love about Stylish Surprise. You never know what you'll get!
My dress is a gorgeous navy blue color with a fun orange and white poppie floral pattern. When I saw the pattern in the package, I squealed. It's so sophisticated and classy. The neckline is higher than I'd usually pick, but the A-line skirt at the bottom is totally my style. I'm okay with the more conservative neckline because the skirt is so much fun. It also came with a cute accent belt which I always like. My waist is one of my favorite body parts so I always like accenting it.
Opening my Stylish Surprise package, I was surprised to find a skirt. I was expecting a top but I checked my invoice and it said "Apparel" item so hey, a skirt is apparel so fair is fair. I can't return the skirt but if I could, I would. It's not my style. But it's not hideous. It could look a lot worse. It goes down to my knees and has two strong pockets in the front of the skirt. I'm not sure how best to wear the skirt without it being overpowering so that's why I don't love it.
See? It's a thick, heavy skirt, with two pockets. I wouldn't have bought a skirt with pockets but I would have bought a skirt that color, preferably a little shorter cut. It feels very retro.
