ModCloth Stylish Surprise

ModCloth is an online store that is filled with fun, unique, retro and awesome clothing in a wide range of styles and sizes. They also have shoes, gifts and things for your home. I love ModCloth and have been shopping with them for a few years. They are very descriptive in their clothing which helps when trying to find the right size. I've only had to return a few items due to sizing but their return policy and process is very easy to navigate. 

Every few months or so, usually seasonally ModCloth puts out what's called a Stylish Surprise box. Each item is $20 and it's a mystery as to what you will get. They offer boxes for dresses, clothing (includes everything but dresses), home, accessories and shoes. 

I've been 50/50 on the boxes but the things I do love are great. The things I don't love so much I sell to friends or put on eBay. If I can get the price I paid back then I'm a happy camper. You can also list unwanted items on the MSA swap site since this is mystery box. 

I used stock photos because they look way better than any picture I can take.

Contents of the Stylish Surprise Box:

Modcoth Presentation Perfection Dress - Original retail price: $79.99 was on sale for $23.99 but now sold out. 

I paid $129.00 for this box after taxes which worked out to $21.50 per item. If I paid full price for these items it would've been $464.94. All of these items were on sale at one point and if I found them on sale in my size I would've paid $191.94. I was pretty excited about this box because I loved everything in it which was a first for me. Usually I get a couple of items I'm not too excited about. All of these items were on sale at one point but I couldn't tell you when. The bummer part is two of the items didn't fit. I love the Hot Air Baleen tee and it says it's a xxlarge but I swear it's more  like a large. I even checked the tags to see if they sent the wrong size. There is no chance of this shirt ever fitting me. The other item that didn't fit was the bugle joy skirt. I'm going to hold on to this item though because I've been low carb eating and I'm hoping to fit into it soon. The other item I'm iffy about but only because I live in California is the jacket. I absolutely love the jacket and had been eyeballing it on their website. I never bought it though because I have a closet full of jackets that I never wear because it doesn't get cold enough in California. I LOVE this jacket though! The dresses are absolutely perfect and they fit! I can't wait to wear them, especially the ice cream cone one. How perfect for summer. 

Verdict: I love the stylish surprise boxes - even if they don't work out perfect every time.
