According to Cents of Style, these images are of the types of items that could be included:
Now onto the mystery items!
Misia Printed Tunic, M – Value $30?
I had trouble tracking down this style so I based the value on other tops at Cents of Style.
Not really my style, but I am trying to add more tunic length tops into my wardrobe, so let’s see.
This tunic feels like a sack on me. There is too much fabric and not enough shape. It is a bit stretchy and the fabric is soft though.
I really like when tunics have side splits, so I’ll give it that.
So much fabric!
The arm length feels a little weird too. It either needs to be a couple of inches shorter or longer.
Reborn J Sweater Dress, M – Value $34.95? I’m linking to a very similar dress on Cents of Style.
Fall is here and I’m ready to find a flattering sweater dress for my tights and booties. This light tan sweater dress is pretty lightweight and super soft.
It’s calf length and very swingy, but it definitely adds bulk where I don’t want it. Maybe a darker color would have been better? This dress is also sheer, so I put a black tank dress underneath. It would have been better to have a nude color.
Pockets! Love that, but they hit exactly at the widest part of my hip creating two bulges on either side. Not the cutest.
Again, this seems to highlight the width of my shoulders and make me look bulkier than I would like.
Black and White Thin Scarf – Value $14.95? (based on other Cents of Style scarves)
This is my favorite item in this mystery bag and honestly, the only one I feel is flattering. I know, not saying a lot considering it’s a scarf. But, it’s a great scarf. Light and airy, it is perfect for fall layers without adding much bulk or warmth. It’s a nice big rectangle too, so perfect to use as a wrap.
Verdict: I paid $16.95 for this bag, so that works out to $5.65 an item. That is a super low price and makes the risk of this mystery bag not so scary. I really liked the scarf but the other two items just weren’t great for me. Both the dress and the tunic were on the example photos (in different colors), so they did a good job of giving a true representation of what you could have received. In terms of size/fit, it is hard to tell based on this mystery bag, but I feel like sizes may vary a lot with Cents of Style.
