Happy new week ladies! Another October Monday started. Here in the PNW it does look like fall today; rain, dark clouds and all. The kids had the Monday blues, and after many hugs and kisses, they were off to school with my husband. After everyone left, I sat down with a huge mug of boiling tea, and of course my sidekick Emma, to pick my accessories favorites from Modcloth to share with you. Why accessories this time? Because it’s finally time to show you the Modcloth Stylish Surprise Shoes I received about two weeks ago.

UPDATE JULY 2017: Shop the latest Stylish Surprises Here!!!

Before I show you my Stylish Surprise Shoes, I want to take a moment to talk about my accessory +shoe picks available at Modcloth right now. For me, as I would guess for you ladies too, one of the most fun parts of dressing up in fall is the accessorizing. I love to express myself, and my mood through my style choices, and there is something refreshing about layering with scarves, gloves, and cute boots. There are just so many more options in fall that can go in one outfit.

I found two weather appropriate boots at Modcloth. The Kick-Me-Up Bootie in Burgundy is a great piece to try the fringe trend in a small dose, and the deep burgundy the boot comes in is absolutely gorgeous. Both Feet on the Campground Bootie is your perfect everyday piece to wear with leggings and skinny jeans. The price point of both of these boots are amazing too.

The girly bows on the Foggy Morning Gloves would cheer me up on a chilly day. The Turn Back Time Necklace  is one of Modcloth’s Most Loved Necklaces and I have it myself. I also can’t get over the beauty of Keystone State Weekend Bag. This bag is big enough to fit your essentials for a weekend getaway but it could also work for carrying your kids’ gear.


When Modcloth offered their Stylish Surprises this fall, about a month ago, I ordered both the apparel and the shoe surprises. You can find my most recent apparel Stylish Surprise styling in this post. I tried the Shoe Stylish Surprise once before back in 2014, and received lovely long lace up boots. This fall, I was hoping once again to receive cold weather shoes. Happy to say I got my wish.


Stylish Surprises are complete mysteries and they are the true definition of luck of the draw. I like surprises and more importantly I like the brands Modcloth carries. I wanted to take my chance and for $10 it was a super easy decision.

Usually the shoe, and accessory Stylish Surprises sell out in literally a minute. I announce these promotions on TheBoxQueen Facebook page so make sure to follow there if you are interested. I felt lucky even just by being able to snatch up one of the shoe surprises LOL.


I ended up receiving these B.A.I.T granny lace up booties in Haku English Plaid Berry. This was one of best shoes I could receive as I would probably never order these myself. Now that I have them in my hands, I absolutely love their out of “my” box style. They also ended up being an incredible value considering I paid $10 for $82 boots.

Style Tip: You can pair your granny lace up boots with leggings, long dresses, or maxi skirts. The boots obviously have an old school style. I wanted to pair them with a trendy item for some contrast and chose this fringe vest that is a recent purchase on major sale. 

I added my latest favorite, panel leggings (I also styled the burgundy ones in this Elizabeth&Clarke Review as well as this same navy one in my  October Stitch Fix Post) and chose this Free People patterned top also on sale, to bring a bit of cheerfulness.



Top: Free People | Fringe Vest: Jolt | Leggings: Sun & Shadow | Boots: Modcloth B.A.I.T ( sold out) | Jewelry: Wantable ( Sept. box pieces) | Shoulder Bag: Calvin Klein past season (same brand similar 1, similar 2)

    The booties look adorable. It’s so hard to find pointed toe boots for the fall. The vest is perfect for fall… overall, Modcloth has surprised me again!

    Wow, you really lucked out! And I like how you’ve set up the graphic for this. I’m an affiliate for ModCloth also, but my posts don’t look nearly this nice. I’m going to use this as a template for my next post. I do love their clothes – they have some very unique items.

      I’ve loved Modcloth for a long time. They carry such a great variety of brands and styles. Every time I visit their online store I find something I adore. So happy you liked the graphic I put together 🙂 Happy Monday. XOXO, Elif
