I can’t believe it’s already Sunday. This week has been a true whirlwind. (well which one isn’t) During the week I have been busy with my regular mom duties, along with doing some behind the scenes work on this blog.
I’ve been preparing my first reader survey I plan to share with you soon. I really hope you participate, and give your valuable feedback so I can continue on improving theboxqueen,
and make it a fun, happy, and inspirational place for you gals. ( There is also going to be little surprises for a couple random participants wink wink 🙂 ) The survey will be up sometime in the next weeks.
UPDATE MARCH 2017: Shop the latest Stylish Surprises Here!!!
I’ve even managed to squeeze in a boutique opening into a Thursday evening which I’ll share with you soon, and Friday night was a oh so very needed mom’s night out. Friday was also extra fun as I received my Modcloth Stylish Surprises. I am sharing with you my first one today, the dress surprise item. (You can find previous reviews here)
Modcloth Stylish Surprise is a about twice/three times a year promotion Modcloth offers. It’s one of the best deals around as you get to choose dresses, shoes, and apparel for about $10-$15, and the catch is what you receive is a total surprise.The dress surprise I received is this Myrtlewood colorful dress with a V neck collar, and full skirt. This brand’s dresses on Modcloth are between $79 to $109 so there is no question for $10 this is a beyond spectacular deal. I especially liked the print on the dress; it reminds me of my favorite impressionist Monet’s water lily paintings.
One of the reasons I like receiving surprise items is to try on looks I wouldn’t purchase on my own. Trying new things I wouldn’t immediately gravitate towards broadens my style horizons, and lets me experiment outfits that bring out different sides of me. This dress is that kind of a surprise item. I wouldn’t have picked it out myself, but I am very happy to have received it. It brings out the girly side of me. This dress makes me feel like a princess. 🙂
Although it’s likely Modcloth won’t have another Stylish Surprise for at least a couple of months, their sale section has really cute stuff. I am including some of my favorites below, you can click on them to see their brands. How adorable are the D’Orsay flats, and what an amazing price! Use code YAY15 to get site wide %15 off today!!
I’ve used the bow belt also seen here to add some lovely color to the already cheerful dress. I think it helped intensify the Cinderella effect. 🙂
