  1. Painful and expensive leason learned. I just wasted $56 on clothes. Now I know better than to buy mystery boxes of clothing. I got a beige chiffon dress with fuschia pink flowers that looks like an ugly cake – like those nightmare online dresses from China. The two tops look like they’re from Goodwill. At least the romper is nice in wine color which I can use at home because it’s too short for outside. I will stick to mystery beauty boxes from hwre onwards. Clothing is personal πŸ™

  2. How do you sign up for this subscription, is it a monthly one? I’m confused I went to their site but didn’t see anything about a monthly sub. Can someone tell me how mod cloth works?


    • I think this was a sale they had (so a one-time, or periodic thing), not a subscription. Probably to clear out unsold inventory!

  3. Ooooh, now they have a stylish surprise with home goods available…

  4. I wish I had luck in the past but after buying a stylish surprise 3 or 4 times and being super unhappy with each one…I’ve sworn them off!

    • My strategy is to buy 3 and if I really like 1 then it’s still a decent deal. If I can swap away the others even better but if not someone at Goodwill may like it. It looks like these surprise bags used to be $15 in previous years for apparel, so they’ve lowered the price to $10

  5. I am so glad I saw your post Friday! I love looking at ModCloth but everything is way too expensive for me to actually buy! I didn’t know that the sizes run small…. so I hope whatever I get actually fits. I ordered a shoes box and apparel. By the time I got to the website the accessories had sold out! Can’t wait to see what I get!

  6. Thanks for the heads up! I grabbed one clothing in M ( I usually wear small or xsmall in womens) and a womens fancy box. Thank you everyone for the tip to grab a size up! I’ve never received anything from either brand so I’m excited!!! πŸ™‚

  7. Damn I’m so mad I missed this! ahhh!!!

  8. Crap! I’ve never shopped from ModCloth and now I worry I should’ve bought one size up… Wah! Too late now… Incentive to hit the gym yet this morning!

  9. SO BUMMED that everything’s sold out but Apparel, but I snagged one of those. Like everyone, I’m wondering if I should have bought an L instead of M. Forgot that everything on Mod Cloth runs small.

    Wahhh, I feel sad that I missed shoes and accessories. Wow, I spent one day away from my computer yesterday and look what happened! (I saved money – LOL!)

  10. Missed the shoe deal, all sizes sold out….and the accessories deal, but did snag one apparel box….if it’s too Junior my daughter can have it. Or I can consign it if neither of us likes it!!! (hoping for a dress!!!!)

  11. I find that most of the things I have purchased from mod cloth run small. I hope I didn’t make a mistake by ordering 2 large. Maybe I should of gotten a medium to even it out.

    • I have the same concerns as you! Hopefully the larges will fit, even though I usually wear a medium. If not, maybe we will get lucky and there will be people who ordered mediums, and need larges, who will get the same or similar things and want to swap!

      • I worried about that too, so I contacted their customer service to see if I could change my order. After an hour, it’s too late, but they gave me a free shipping code so I could buy the other size. The customer service rep told me they have a swap group on facebook too.

  12. I ordered 2 apparel boxes

  13. Kicks self for not getting shoes….i totally forgot I need new shoes!!!

  14. Thanks for letting us know about this Liz! This is my first time trying out mod cloth and I’m excited! I just ordered 2 clothing in 2 different sizes (M &L). Now the wait… It’s like waiting for Golden Tote!

  15. Thanks for the heads up on this! I am a huge modcloth fan and combine that with my addiction to getting surprised with all my subscription boxes, I couldn’t click on the link fast enough! I just ordered 3 clothing surprises. Can’t wait to see what I get!

    • Yay! I can’t wait to hear what everyone gets! πŸ™‚

  16. I couldn’t resist either and ordered 2 of the clothing surprises. I would have tried the shoes, but they were all out of my size. πŸ™ Thanks for the heads up on this one!

  17. *dreamy sigh* I can’t wait for my surprises to show up.

  18. Does anyone know if there shoe sizing is like Charlotte Russe shoes or do they run small?

  19. I’m mostly break yet I couldn’t resist! (Yay for credit cards) I got 2 shoes and 4 apparel (in 2 different sizes). I wasn’t sure which size I should get since my waist and hips are drastically different in sizes. The internet is killing my wallet! But I figured 4 outfits and 2 pairs of shoes for $50 was a great deal. And whatever I don’t like I can swap or sell πŸ™‚

  20. Sooooo stoked! I got 2 shoes and 2 clothes! I hope they ship quicker than they usually do.

  21. I have always wanted to order from ModCloth, but it’s too expensive for me. So I easily caved on this & got 1 apparel & 1 shoe. It took forever to get through, then it wouldn’t let me get to my shopping cart. But I just checked out & I’m so excited to finally be able to say I can afford ModCloth πŸ˜‰ unless they’re hideous, I’ll probably be pretty happy πŸ™‚

  22. I got the clothing one with shipping $14 – never shopped with them before. I would have done a shoe too but I don’t wear flats AT ALL and since you can’t choose I thought not.

  23. Liz, you should make some kind of post where we can all submit our pics of what we got when we get them! It would be fun to see what everyone else got!

    • I love that idea! We’ll do it! πŸ™‚

      • That’s an awesome idea! Yay! I ordered an apparel and shoe surprise. Bummed I missed the accessories.

  24. Can we swap the items in the swap section if we get something we don’t like? πŸ™‚

    • Yep! I’ll add Stylish Surprise to the list! (I’m excited to see what everyone gets!)

      • The internet and PayPal are the devil and you are in league with them with the swap site! Seriously, I don’t even have to get up to go to my purse to get a credit card anymore! And with the option to swap, I might as well order a few extra to see what I get. I already went wild on the Fancy mystery box and now this? I have no self control at all. None. Period.

  25. Is the shopping bag frozen for anyone else? I want to spend some money and they won’t let me! >:(

    • it froze for me

    • I just called them, because I wanted in on this. They said they are having a problem because sooooo many people are trying to order, but that once they get back up and running (their techs are working on it) that they will continue to run the sale, so we should still be able to get something! Yay! Just keep checking on it, because they had no timeframe.

      • I was able to check out just now – looks like it is working again!

    • I finally got through! I ordered one shoe and clothing! Yay a! I can’t wait!

  26. Just bought a mystery shoe=] I’m just as excited as everyone else!

  27. I ordered 1 clothing and 2 shoes! I’ve never shopped ModCloth before and I’ll be honest I’m a little scared at what I might get. I love some of the items on their website, but some I know I couldn’t pull off…I just couldn’t. But I also couldn’t pass up this deal.

    How is the quality of the clothing/shoes?

    • I’ve ordered many things from Modcloth, and in my experience, the quality has been all over the board due to the fact that they carry so many different brands – generally pretty decent, though! Most of their shoes are faux leather.

    • I love the clothing and it’s usually fairly good quality. The shoes, however, are mostly not my style, and the couple of pairs I bought were uncomfortable.

  28. Ohhhh! How exciting, thank you for the notification. I bought 1 shoe and 4 apparel for a total of $50, which made me eligible for free shipping. πŸ™‚ $50 for all that? Heck yes! Even if I’m happy with one thing, I’ll consider it a win. Can’t wait to see what everyone gets.

  29. Just ordered 2 apparel surprises. Fingers crossed. $4 shipping ($24 total with the 2 items). Did anyone have any coupon codes? Already a great deal but just curious.

  30. I wish I’d seen this when there were still accessories! I happened to have an $8 credit, grabbed two clothing items and one shoes, keeping my fingers crossed I end up with one item I like!

  31. I have no self control …. I got 1 apparel and 1 shoe. Accessories were sold out!

  32. I was so excited when I found out, and complete fluke too! I had signed up for the mailing list just so I didn’t miss out on it this time. Last time I found out about it just after everything sold out. I just happened to go onto their Facebook page and people were talking about it, doesn’t sound like they were overly public about the announcement. I’m so excited to see what I get!

  33. Oh I love ModCloth, but it can be so expensive. Definitely grabbed a clothing and shoe item!

    Also, I’m oh so impatiently waiting for your Golden Tote review for this month. I LOVED mine!

    • I’m still impatiently waiting for my Golden Tote to show up! (Hopefully it should be here at some point today). The wait is killing me! Glad you loved yours though! πŸ™‚

  34. I LOVE ModCloth. I’m super tempted to get a clothing box but I’m two different sizes on top and bottom. If I order a small it definitely won’t fit my bottom half. I don’t know what to do!

  35. I just ordered 2 apparel and 2 shoes. Gah! I love that Modcloth offers plus sizes as well. This was too good to pass up.

  36. Yea never heard of this got the apparel one, so we see how that goes. Was going get accessory too for my mom, lol, if I didn’t like something… she like any and all jewelry especially bracelets.

  37. Thanks for the heads-up; I usually get an email from them but not this time! Also, I’d like to point out that the clothing and shoes surprise boxes are usually $15, so it’s an extra good deal this time around. πŸ˜‰

    One time they me sent a silk strapless maxi dress by Line & Dot that was worth $188!

    • They *sent me* that dress… geez, my second typo in 20 minutes commenting here… maybe I should call it a day…

  38. Boooo! The accessories box is already sold out!

  39. I’ve never ordered from ModCloth before–I just went ahead and bought one clothing and one accessories box! Keeping my fingers crossed! What is it about mystery boxes?

  40. And here I was saying yesterday that I’m not going to by any more clothes, and I go get 1 apparel, 1 shoe, and 2 accessories πŸ˜‰

  41. Got 2 of each. You’re killing me smalls!!

  42. Oh how fun! I’ve never shopped at ModCloth but ordered the accessory and apparel ones! Unfortunately they didn’t have my big ass size 11 in the shoes or I’d have gotten that too!!

    Apparently I am totally celebrating (I got a BIG RAISE last Wednesday) by shopping today since I also order the mystery fancy box. πŸ™‚

    • Congrats on the Big Raise!!! πŸ™‚

  43. Oooh, I just got one of each. Love ModCloth. LOL, Liz, you have my whipping out my credit card left and right today! Haha!

    • Haha! It’s these March Madness deals! πŸ™‚
