My stylish surprise(s)

Hi all, I apologize for not posting yesterday. My room mate and I did a bit of spring cleaning around the apartment and that ate up a lot of my day. Anywho, let's get to the fun stuff. As I told you earlier in the week, I bought two stylish surprises from ModCloth, and guess what! They are here :]

I received a beautiful navy blue lace top by MM Couture. And...

I also received a maxi dress and/or skirt by BB Dakota.

I love both pieces and thankfully both fit just right. I was so excited that the items shipped so fast too (they got here yesterday but I didn't wake up to hear the mailman). Now that I have caught the ModCloth bug I want to go on a major shopping spree but must refrain (someone hire me?). After Japan and scoring my first "big girl" job - it is on.

I will show off my pretty necklace from Grace and Viola in my Wardrobe Wednesday post next week. I am off now to go run some errands. I hope you all have a beautiful weekend.

Did you get a stylish surprise? I would love to see what you got! Also, have you entered my giveaway? CLICK HERE for more details.

  1. i didn't end up getting one because i was scared i wouldn't like it, or more so, it wouldn't fit, since i am really varied in their sizes.

    these are GREAT - i have seen some girls that were so-so, but you got lucky.

    1. I had never bought anything from them before so I didn't know much about their sizing but hoped for the best. Thankfully everything worked out. And thank you! I still haven't seen anyone else's but hope to see some soon.

  4. The top in the first pic is absolutely wonderful! I have never heard of a stylish surprise and I think I wouldn't order one, too risky to be disappointed :)

  21. Hey I got mine on Saturday, too!! I love what you got. That lace top is right up my alley. And that BB Dakota skirt/dress just screams, "Vacation!" I totally envision it being worn on a beach...ahhh :)
    I'll have to post on the little tunic dress I received sometime soon. I've just been sooo not into my blog this weekend. I've slept in incredibly late and chilled out with my neighbor-friends...I haven't had the desire to stop and blog, ya know.
    Well, it looks like your $30 got you two awesome things! I'd say you did well on your first MC purchase.

    1. Yay! I am glad yours got to you quickly too. Thank you :] I have always wanted a lace top like that, and I definitely agree with you on the dress. I can't wait to wear it on adventures this summer.

      I can't wait to see what you go! I feel like a lot of people have not been in the mood to blog this weekend, so you are not alone. It sounds like you had a fun weekend though :]

      & thanks again! I can't wait to shop some more MC.

    2. (commenting from my phone so please forgive any typos, autocorrects, or anything of the sort. I'm on break and wanted to catch up on my faves.)
      Yeah dude I've noticed that 4 of the main blogs I follow have been idle and "cricket-y" as well for about a week now! Must be something in the air. Haha

  26. Gorgeous. That first outfit is divine. I'm trying to patiently wait for bare legs weather this way. I'm excited! Although, I always end up missing tights halfway through the season! <3
