The Subscription Box: Cypress & 5th
The Cost: Choose from the following subscription levels:

The Products: “An assortment of in season, on-trend clothing for you to pick from each month.”
This invoice is included in your package and has each product listed. The name of the product and size you ordered is included, but not the price. I wish the price was included so I knew the value. I did see that some of the products are available in their online shop, so I could find the value that way.
I love it when companies send a free return shipping label along with your stuff! Most companies do these days, but there is still the odd place that doesn’t, and it is so annoying.
Another helpful little card included in the shipment is this one, which lets you know about how all of the packaging for your box is made from eco-friendly materials.
Laguna Tee – Value $28.00
As soon as I took this blue shirt out of the bag, I was excited to put it on because it was so incredibly soft. The ribbed texture and raw edges make this light blue t-shirt slightly edgy, too. The fit wasn’t my favorite, but that is basically because I don’t like anything that is too short. I am a long-and-flowy-top kind of person. I paired this with high-waisted jeans, but I think this could be cute with a high-waisted skirt or some cute overalls. I do also feel that $28 is a little much for this t-shirt.
Full Circle Necklace – Value $18.00?
I really like the style of this simple “gold” necklace. The length is about 16 inches, and the simple gold circle pendant is something that can be worn with anything! I couldn’t find this necklace on their online shop, so I just guessed at the value above.
Earth Fare Wrap Bracelet – Value $21.00
While this is a cute bracelet, it is not at all my style. I prefer simpler jewelry items, especially the older I get. The green hues featured in this piece can be worn with many colors, which is nice. The style is very bohemian, so if you are into that, this is a great piece for you.
Olive Off Shoulder Blouse – Value $39.00
Because I have a larger bust, off the shoulder tops/dresses aren’t something I have tried until now. Strapless bras don’t exactly do enough for me, so these types of tops aren’t my faves. However, once I got this on, I didn’t hate it! I wish that the length had a couple more inches added, but it wasn’t too bad.
Joanna Navy Work Blouse – Value $32.00
This navy short-sleeve blouse was my least favorite item in this box. I thought the fit was way off—in fact, you can see that the back didn’t line up. Not sure what was going on there. I also really don’t like polyester tops like these anyway. I liked the detailing on the back, but I wish it would have been made better.
Happy Hour Darlin’ Dress – Value $45.00?
My biggest disappointment with this “dress” was the graphic print on the front. I mean, what in the world does “Happy Hour + Darlin’” mean? Maybe it’s because I am in my 30s, but this did not resonate with me at all, which means I would not wear this out in public. I am already not a huge fan of clothing that says anything. I did however, like the material of the dress because it was a thick, stretchy, t-shirt-type material. This is supposed to be a dress, but it was a little short for me, which is why I chose to wear this with skinny jeans. You could also pair this with leggings. I just took a guess at the value, since this isn’t currently listed on their site shop.
The Verdict: Overall, I wasn’t super impressed with my first Cypress & 5th box. I had to estimate the value of a lot of the items (my estimated total value is $183). Since the cost of the box is $129, the average cost of each item would be about $21.50. The quality is what I would expect from a subscription box, but the style wasn’t quite there yet. I know there is some trial and error with these things, so I definitely want to try this box some more to see if this can get better.
