ModCloth Stylish Surprise

ModCloth’s Stylish Surprise is launching next week! (Thank you Megan so much for the heads up!)

If you aren’t familiar with Stylish Surprise, ModCloth offers deeply discounted mystery items a few times a year. I believe the prices are usually $5 or $10 per item, and you can pick from dresses, shoes, accessories, apartment items etc. (Check out my review of a past Stylish Surprise).

I will do a post as soon as I know the sale is live, so make sure to sign up for the MSA daily newsletter if you’d like a reminder. ModCloth also notifies their app users when the sale is live too!

  1. Just FYI Modcloth FB hinted at it being today…

  2. Does anybody know at what time the Stylish Surprise items usually go on sale? Like, 8 o’clock PDT or something? I’m in Europe right now, so I’ll have to plan my day accordingly if I want to snatch up anything.

    I was super bummed I did’t get to buy anything at all last time around, because I didn’t get any notification from the app, then the site kept crashing and then everything sold out super quickly. ๐Ÿ™

    • I am pretty sure they keep west coast customers in mind, so it would likely be sometime after 8 AM PST. Hope that helps!

      • Ah, cheers, Liz.
        I’ll keep an eye out after 8 AM PST, then. ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. FYI — ModCloth just posted on their FB that prices have increased. Now it is:

    $20 – Dresses
    $15 – Other apparel
    $10 – Shoes
    $5 – Accessories/Decor

    $20 for a dress you won’t know will fit is a lot, in my opinion… Seems like lots of other ladies feel the same way, based on their comments on FB. I was hoping to splurge on several dresses this time around, but looks like now I might try for only one… Boo.

    • Thanks for the update! $20 is too much of a gamble for me, $10 was ok but $20 too risky. One dress was cute but not my style at all, and the other 2 were the exact same just different colors and didn’t fit, I’d be really mad if I had spent $60 on them. The shirt was really cute though, not my normal style but fit great and was cute.

  4. I have NEVER managed to snag one of these. I want ALLLLLL the shoes! All of them! ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. How much are the modcloth boxes now? I did a quick search but I saw apparel for $15 and $10. Whats the current pricing?

  6. Love this!

  7. I had one awesome one and one really bad one. Dare I try again!

  8. Thank you for the advanced notice! This WILL be the time I finally get in before they get sold out!!!! Woo!

  9. I love ModCloth! I am getting in on this box for sure!

  10. I’m definitely going to try to get in on the Modcloth boxes. I’ve never ordered from them and this seems like a fun, low-risk way to try them out.

    • It is low-cost, but definitely not low-risk, they send out some CRAZY stuff! lol

      • HA! I’m up for the surprise.

  11. I signed up for the Luxor box and emailed them. Received a quick reply and felt less apprehensive. They used PayPal as they felt more secure and felt subscribers would feel more secure as they could control it. They are working on adding a membership area on the website as I asked how would they be able to include apparel without this. They stated that the apparel would be done with a voucher and you could then choose sizes and colors, etc. They stated that I would not be disappointed and that they want the first box to be a surprise. Everything Luxor said in the email made sense and was reassuring.
    Back to the ModCloth. I got the surprise dresses last time and was disappointed. Got a top instead and a long mother of the bride type dress that I would never wear. Contacted them about the top and they said they ran out of dresses and sent that instead. They did refund me the cost and said I could keep the top.

      Thank you for the details about Luxor Box, I’m still trying to decide. I really don’t want a lot more products since I’m overloaded with products already.

      For Mod Cloth, I can’t decide what I’ll get but I’m definitely going to try to get some items this time!

  12. Oh my gosh, I’m so excited! I’ve been waiting for this! I’ve never gotten one before. I hope I can get one before they sell out!

  13. I have seen your reviews on this and have been waiting for another one to happen! I love clothes (too much) and didn’t know about it the last time! Thanks so much for letting me know!

  14. I’d love to be able to get this again! Last time I found out within an hour after it launching and everything was gone in plus sizes. It’s amazing how fast their stuff goes.

  15. Liz,

    Why aren’t you posting about Luxor box? Is there an issue with them we should know about? I am worried about subscribing to a box you won’t acknowledge.

    • Same here. I was going to but decide not. I actually asked them a question on facebook message to see if it is mainly spa/beauty products and they never respond. Treasures from around the world can be beauty itms also. I do not need any more beauty items.

      • I thought Liz posted she was to receive a reviewer’s box. I’m passing on it for now because it’s too ambiguous.

        • That would be cool since I saw they only gave them to a few bloggers. I just got worried when I saw she didn’t post their launch and hasn’t answered others questions in comments about it….

      • I wish they had hints or something. I wonder why they are keeping it so hush hush? Not a lot of media…. I got suckered in to lock in the lower price. Figured I could cancel if I didn’t like it.

    • No issue I’m aware of – I just don’t know enough about it yet. I do a “new subscription box alert” post for only about 5-10% of the boxes I learn about. My criteria for what boxes I post about is generally: Am I excited about it? Does it seem legit? Do I have a good sense of what subscribers will receive if they sign up now?

      We do list all new boxes we find out about in the directory though:

      Hope that helps explain! ๐Ÿ™‚

      • That makes me feel better then!!! Thanks for the reply.

  16. Thank you for the heads up!
