The first thing I saw in my box was a thank you/contact card.

My Story Ribbed Cross Neckline Sweater – Value $35?

(96% cotton, 4% spandex; hand wash cold, line/hang dry)

I really don’t wear a lot of white, but I love this little criss cross neckline trend that’s been going on lately. This sweater has a looser fit to it – if it were any larger I wouldn’t wear it. But I’m fine with the fit because that’s probably just the design, and it’s still flattering. It definitely seems like a nice transition piece into Spring!

Hers & Mine Drape Cardigan – Value $28?

(95% polyester, 5% spandex; hand wash cold, line/hang dry)

I wasn’t sure I’d like this sweater when I first pulled it out of my box but it is so soft and comfortable! The sleeves are nice and long, too, which I love. The fabric feels a little slinky and is lightweight, so it’s perfect for a Spring layer. Here, it’s shown open but I also really like it tied in the front, shown below:

Not a style I usually wear, but I think it’s cute and really flattering. This isn’t something I’d think about picking up myself but after trying it on, I like it.

Ella Mara Floral Hoodie – Value $30?

(95% rayon, 5% spandex; machine wash gentle, tumble dry low heat)

The floral print and colors of this hoodie are so pretty! The fabric is soft and comfortable, too. It’s a lighter weight hoodie which is, again, great for Springtime/transitional weather. My one comment is that this hoodie seemed to have a smaller fit – a little snug in the top/shoulders and especially the sleeves. It still fits okay, but I would think that this size large would fit more comfortably on a size medium. If you’re someone who tends to wear snugger hoodies then this would be fine, but if you’re like me and like some comfy wiggle room in hoodies, a size up would fit better.

Umgee USA Tote

This tote is a pretty pink and has a Umgee USA design printed on both sides. It’s a well-constructed, simple, canvas tote. It’s handy, but it’s not something I would consider a fashion accessory or anything, but that’s okay because it’s just an extra bonus subscribers got with this box. I’ll probably use it for groceries or toddler toys and books for the car.

Verdict: I had a fun time with my first Citrus Hill Clothing Mystery Box. I was pleasantly surprised to like the tops more once I tried them on, and I like the theme of Springtime Sweaters – not something I would have thought of, but all three items are great transitional pieces! However the page for this box says that the items fit true to size, but I thought the hoodie ran small. The white top may simply be designed to have a looser/tunic-esque fit, but the fact that one item has a looser fit and one item runs snug means I couldn’t just size up for the box to get a hoodie that fits me better, because then the white sweater would be too big on me. I really like the look of the floral hoodie but I think it’s just a bit snug for me to reach for as it is.

The value is a little hard to estimate for boutique brand items, too, so I estimated based off what I know of boutique brands from my other subscriptions. I’m good with what I got for the price, which really comes out to $25/top – all in all, I’m happy.

What do you think about Citrus Hill Clothing Mystery Boxes? I am looking forward to seeing their future themed boxes!

  1. Don’t put rayon in the wash, there is a good chance it will shrink. The sweaters are cute.

  2. I really like all the pieces, they look great on you! Too bad the hoodie was a touch small, it’s really cute!

  3. Got one of these too and am happy. My favorite is the floral one and yes, I think it feels and fits like a shirt with a hood rather than classic hoodie.

  4. I love that floral hoodie on you! It doesn’t look too small, but I know what you mean about it just feeling too small.

  5. I love Citrus Hill, everything I’ve bought from them has been excellent quality boutique items at great prices. I’ve tried their outfit bundles and mystery boxes, and was pleased every time. Their customer service is also stellar, I had an issue with shipping, and they were so sweet and made sure everything was taken care of. I highly recommend them!

  6. Haley, do you happen to know if they ever carry plus sizes? The only sizes I see are S M L. You look cute in all three of the tops you got!

    • No, they tried it but the outfits didn’t sell.

    • Depending on what they find they will sometimes carry XL but not anything larger than that

  7. So happy to see you reviewed Citrus Hill! I got their Valentine’s mystery box & it was amazing!! I am loving all 3 of these lightweight sweaters (my Valentine’s box had a few more items but not all sweaters) & hope it is still available for purchase! Finally someone created a boutique quality mystery box for a price I can afford to take a chance on 😉

  8. I really like the white sweater on you- very flattering and just adorbs. Not as big a fan of the other two tops, but I agree with you- the floral hoodie needs to be a size up- I think I’d like it better then too.
