I love the thrill of the hunt that comes with shopping sales. And, when it’s a surprise sale, I find it even harder to resist. Earlier this year, I nabbed a Golden Tote Surprise Grab Bag that had mixed results, but that didn’t stop me from shopping another surprise sale.
Occasionally, Modcloth, everyone’s favorite retro inspired online retailer, offers mystery items at a great discount. Naturally, I had to scoop up a few items and opted for the Stylish Surprise – Apparel and the Stylish Surprise – Shoes. Watch the video to see what I got…
Modcloth Stylish Surprise Unboxing!
Qupid Gold D’Orsay Ballet Flats
These darling Qupid D’Orsay flats normally retail for $34.99, but as a stylish surprise, they sold for only $10. Sadly, these shoes run big and don’t work for me.
Sangria Tan and Ivory Missy Floral Shirtdress
This vintage inspired dress is so pretty, but unfortunately there was a mix up. Instead of being sent an apparel item (top/bottoms/coat), I was sent a dress and in the wrong size to boot. Thankfully, Modcloth has excellent customer service, and they issued me a refund since I was sent the wrong item. This Sangria floral dress normally retails for $79, so getting it at the stylish surprise price of $15 would have been a great steal had the dress fit.
Modcloth Stylish Surprise: Hit or Miss?
I really liked that the shoes and the dress matched. I don’t know if that was on purpose, but I love little details like that. Ordering surprise items is always a risk, and while both pieces were a good match for me style wise, neither piece fit. My normal shoes size is 6 US/36 EU, and the flats I received are 6 US/36.5 EU. So, they’re a half size too big. While the dress is darling, I didn’t order the dress stylish surprise. That wouldn’t have been a big deal had the dress fit, but a size 12 is definitely not the size I ordered.
As I mentioned above, Modcloth has great customer, so I can’t complain about the dress since I received a refund. Plus, I don’t doubt that I’ll be able to find a good home for the shoes.
I’m not having great luck with surprise sales, but you know me. This won’t be the last surprise sale I shop. If you are tempted to try your luck, there are still a few Modcloth Stylish Surprise (apparel, shoes, dresses, and jewelry) options left!
