CYPRESS & 5TH AUGUST 2016 - items 1

Must Have Off the Shoulder Top – value: $35?

This top is so dreamy. I’ve noticed that off-the-shoulder is back in but I haven’t found the right shirt to make me want to try it. When I saw this top I couldn’t resist. My favorite part is that it has spaghetti straps – other off-the-shoulder tops I’ve seen look tight at the shoulders to keep it on/in place. These straps also make it so I can try to get away with wearing a bra with nude or clear straps.  I also love the print and the accent at the top. Bonus: I can see this pairing great with an edgy leather moto jacket for the fall.

Cielo Jeans Black Skinnies – value: $40?

These jeans are okay. They fit alright except at my knees? Which I didn’t really know is a thing – I haven’t run into that issue before. I guess the way they’re tapered or shaped just doesn’t work for my shape and I’m left with some awkward knee bunching. Also, they’re a short inseam for me so I cuffed them once. I can make the length work but the fit is just funky for me.

Multi-Colored Tassel Stretch Necklace – value: $28?

This necklace is great! I wouldn’t have put all these colors together but I actually love it. Tassels are usually too boho for me but with this necklace I think it’s so cute. Plus they’re all on an elastic string so you can double it as a shorter necklace or you can wrap it multiple times and wear it as a bracelet.

And the colors (especially the lighter peach color that is also in the tassel) go pretty well with the top.

And here’s how it looks worn as a bracelet. It’s different for my tastes but I think its super fun and I don’t have anything like it already.

Verdict: Overall, I’m happy with my Cypress and 5th picks for August, but I wish the jeans fit a little better. I think I can make them work though (especially maybe with some tall Fall Boots) so I’m not too bummed. I am, however, thrilled with a pretty trendy top and cute necklace that are both a little out of my comfort zone but I love on. As far as value goes, I got what I estimate to be about $103 in value. You can also think about it as $24.93 per item (from the $74.95 cost of the box), which I am also happy with!

  1. I’ve been doing Cypress & 5th for two months now. I really love it. I look forward to it. It’s also very easy for me since I have been waiting for a lung transplant, I can’t really go out and shop. It takes so much energy. Everything fits very well. It’s nice because this way I have a few nice outfits that will last. I can wear out with friends or to a nice occasion if I need or after transplant will have some nice clothes to wear to work since I think most of their styles look nice enough for that too. The add on prices for additional pieces are pretty reasonable too. I found it is an affordable way to work some nice things into my wardrobe (other than my go to jeans, t-shirts & long sleeves. It did take me some playing with my profile to hit on my style, but once I did…I was happy with the selection of pieces.

  2. Love the necklace! Did it have any type of tag on it or a name on it? I don’t subscribe to this box but would love to try and buy the necklace.

    • Lisa, it didn’t, unfortunately!

    • Hi Lisa,

      I’m Jennifer from Cypress & 5th. The necklace/bracelet is $25. Let me know if you want to order it and I’ll send you a link!


      • Hello Jennifer, Thank you so much for replying! I would love the link. Thank you so much! 🙂

  3. I always love your reviews, and I think the outfit looks great. If the knee-bunching bothers you, I bet a tailor could take care of it and it shouldn’t be too expensive.

  4. Love the shirt and the necklace! The jeans are kind of meh, but I suppose acceptable. I wonder if the knees get better or worse after washing?

  5. I’m a huge fan of this brand! Everything I’ve received from Cypress & 5th has become a go to piece for me.

  6. You look stunning in that off the shoulder top!!! It’s perfect. I think the necklace really goes well with the top as well. The jeans look great- can’t tell that there is anything wrong with the fit in the knees.

  7. Love the necklace as a bracelet.

  8. I am in love with that top!!!!! Looks amazing on you!!! So jealous lol

  9. Love all of it on you!
