Like probably everyone else I adore Modcloth. Super cute, quirky, vintage inspired clothes, that offer a wide range of sizes? Who could resist. I know I can’t.
One of my favorite things about Modcloth is the Stylish Surprise. Basically, when they want to get rid of inventory, Modcloth lets you buy a random item for $5 or $10. You have no idea what you are going to get, you just pick the category (Accessory, shoes, dress, etc) and your size. It’s really fun and excited and you pretty much always get something super cute!
I’ve gotten it once before and I was pretty happy with it! This time I decided to splurge a bit and get something from every category (and two from the dress category). Overall, I’m pretty happy with it.
I made a video for my youtube channel with my initial reaction to my items.
I love all these items. I would have loved to model them, but I haven’t really had the chance to wear them yet!
The first dress I got was this teal dress with hats and mustaches in the print. I can’t tell you how much I adore this dress. I love the color, I love the bow, I love the pattern and the cut. There is only one problem. It doesn’t fit. I ordered a size that I thought would be good, and overall it does. There is one area where the zipper wont’ zip at all. Honestly, I’ve been having a hard time with my weight lately and clothes have been fitting strangely. I’m working on losing some weight to hopefully remedy this problem, so hopefully by summer I’ll be able to wear this dress! It seems like it’s more of a summer thing anyway.
Dress number two is more of a vintage inspired one I think? I think it is very cute and not something I would pick out normally. But I like it. I do have to figure out how to style it, since it’s not something I would normally wear. But I’m excited to break out of my fashion box and rock this dress!
This shirt is great. It’s really classy and gives off a nautical vibe. Maybe it’s the blue and white stripes? Once agin with the weight thing, but this shirt is a little tight. I haven’t been able to find any images of it online so I’m not sure if it’s supposed to be so form fitting. The material is a bit stretchy so I’m assuming it’s supposed to be a little form fitting.
This is the only item that I’m not 100% happy about. I just don’t wear earrings. I have a horrible time with them. I’m allergic to nickel and probably some other metals (I have a hard time wearing sterling silver also). So these are just not going to work out for me. But that’s the gamble with the Modcloth Stylish Surprise! You never know what you are going to get. I think I have a friend who would like these very much.
I also got a pair of shoes, but I forgot to take a picture of them. They really aren’t anything fancy. Just a pair of beige sandals. They will be super cute to wear in the summer! You can see them in my video above!
I can’t wait for the next Stylish Surprise!
