Modcloth Stylish Surprise!

I’ve spent who knows how long I’ve spent drooling over all of the stuff on Modcloth. There are just so many cute and interesting pieces on that site! Recently I bought a pair of shoes from there and ended up getting some store credit from that purchase (long story). I decided that I’d use that store credit to get the Stylish Surprise!

The Stylish Surprise, if you didn’t know, is a random item (Most likely from last season). Basically you pay $10 and you get a mystery item. I got all three types: Apparel, Shoes, and Accessories.

I made a video with all of the items I got, so check that out!

However, there were a few problems. The dress is super cute and makes good “business wear” but the zipper is broken. It won’t zip up anymore. I have no idea how I got it UNzipped. I’m going to have to get one of my friends who is better at sewing zippers to fix it for me. Other than that, it’s fantastic.

The necklace, isn’t really my style, but it’s kind of nice to have something different.

And the boots. Oh god, the boots. They are so cute but they sent me the wrong size. I’m working on possibly getting them replaced. Tall boots are something I really want to be able to wear, but I have really big calfs so a lot of the times if they don’t have a zipper I can’t wear them. I don’t know if I’m going to get the same style, or if I’m going to get a completely different pair (or no exchange at all), but even if I had these boots in my size I don’t think I could wear them. If nothing works out then I’ll probably find someone to trade shoes with.


Overall, my Stylish Surprise was an enjoyable experience. Even though there were problems, Modcloth has excellent customer service so they try to solve your problems if you have them. And I paid $10 for a dress with a broken zipper that probably started out $50+ It’s really no big deal.


I’d definitely purchase the Stylish Surprise again!


UPDATE: Modcloth got back to me, about the shoes. They are sending me a free pair and a 10% coupon for my next order! Modcloth’s clothes might be expensive, but their customer service is top notch!
