  1. I got this dress in burgandy:

    I also got this dress in a different print than shown:

    These are styles of dress that I would typically buy.

    I got two shirts as well. One is a plain t-shirt, but very much what I would typically buy (although for cheaper). The other is definitely outside of my comfort zone, but I’ll see what I can come up with to make it work. That’s part of the fun, right?!

    I’m very pleased overall with the purchase! I will do this again when it comes back up.

  2. I received my items. I have ordered clothes (and shoes, home, accessories) from ModCloth before and have learned that with my body shape I need to size up. In the past the only item I have ever had to return was the dresses. I love their styling so I had high hopes for this Stylish Surprise.

    I ordered 1 dress, 5 apparels and 2 pairs of shoes. The dress, even though sized up, still did not fit and truthfully was personally not something I would pay for.

    Out if the apparels 1 was the wrong size. It was the cutest item in there and I can’t wear it. πŸ™ It was 4 sizes too small. How that happens I do not know. I looked at the packaging and somewhere in the packaging process someone put the wrong item into a bag that said my size but wasn’t. I called customer service. They were great. Refunding my money and I do not have to send the item back. I will actually donate this item.
    The other apparel: 2 were pretty but too large (because I sized up like I normally gave too). So they look like maternity tops on me. 1 was not my style but fits the vest although it clings to ny belly a little too much. The other us a cardigan that I have on my wushlist in several others colors. I got mustard yellow which does not look good in my skin tone. The good thing is now I know how this cardigan guts on me. Ugh…not so great.

    The two shoes were the most shocking. I love 98% of ModCloth’s shoes. Well I got the 2% that I think are hideous.

    II still lice ModCloth. That same day I ordered some other items that I love. So, I will continue to shop there but no more Stylish Surprises for me (unless U can grab an accessories or home item). With what I spent I xiyld have gotten 2 shirts abd a pair of shoes I loved but I got (as my husband says of subs in general) a bunch of stuff I wouldn’t pay for even if it was on clearance. Le sigh…

  3. I just received my stylish surprise… I ordered a dress, an apparel item and a pair of shoes… I ordered both the dress and the apparel in medium. The dress they sent is a large. It’s a lovely dress, but will never fit. I’m bummed. Sent customer service an email, hoping they can do something about it, but I don’t have high hopes.

  4. I just opened my order! I got a dress and an apparel item. Shoes were already sold out.

    For the dress, I received the Georgia Gallivanting halter/strapless dress in navy dots – here is a picture:

    I love that its a convertible strapless dress and that it is retro. It is well made and lined.

    For the apparel, I received a really pretty Lila Clothing Company floral tank that is more like a halter top. The background is a soft green with roses in a dusty pink color. Also fully lined, soft, and very pretty. I could not find a picture of it, but its very pretty.

    I was very happy with the surprises!

  5. I posted the pictures of my order. I got two dresses, an alternate clothing item (in this case a skirt) and a pair of shoes (in this case a pair of tall boots). I actually was pleasantly surprised with my items! One of the dresses was a really cute navy blue with small crescent moons on it. I feel a lot better about my mystery items from ModCloth than those I received from the Golden Tote mystery sales.

  6. I received both of my items! The dress is absolutely lovely and fits perfectly however it is a homecoming (prom?) dress and I am 27 years old but I may see if I can pull it off for a wedding this spring with the right accessories. It is strapless hits about mid calf with a tan lining overlayed with black tulle, it’s very well made! For the apparel I received a really pretty mustard yellow button down long sleeve blouse, my only complaint about it is if I leave 3 buttons undone it is a bit risquΓ© (but nothing too terrible) however if I only leave 2 undone it’s too tight however I can always throw it on over a tank top. Over all I am extremely happy with both items and I’m looking forward to the next stylish surprise:)

  7. I am SUPER irritated with what I received. While one dress was beautiful and fit perfectly… they sent me another dress that was NOT the size I ordered at all!! I am so upset. Then I call their customer service and no one is there because of an “event”… How are you going to label something as “all sales finals” and then send something that is not the size selected??

    • Oooo, that is a nice dress! Congrats on the score! My box was delivered this morning but I’m stuck at work until 5pm. Can’t wait to get home and see what I got!

    • OMG! That’s super lucky!! I’ve been totally eyeing the black one, but burgundy sounds just as pretty! Great for fall.

  8. I received my order yesterday (I paid for expedited shipping), and I had ordered 2 apparel and 1 dress. The apparel items were a cute mint-green lightweight sweater with cream-colored lace accents and a tulip-print blouse (which is cute, but the wrong colors for me – green, orange, and yellow!). The dress is an adorable burgundy colored 50’s-style knee-length dress that has a really cool neckline – it is almost triangular. It is super flattering (ie: stretchy!), fits me perfectly, and I don’t have anything else like it – so I’d say that’s a win! πŸ™‚ It’s my first time ordering from ModCloth, and I’m super impressed!

  9. I received my order today, just thought I would share what I got, I purchased 4 pairs of shoes and 2 apparel items, for the shoes I received:
    1 pair sandals from Chinese Laundry (Kaley in Black)
    1 pair of wedge sandals from Report (Dorsett in black)
    1 pair of lace up super high healed booties from Natural Breeze (skyler-01)
    1 pair of flats from Machi Footwear (Sarah in pink multi)
    for the apparel I received:
    American Apparel lightweight sweatshirt with a cute elephant design
    Everly sleeveless blouse
    I really like all the items except the booties, i was hoping for boots but the shoes I got were nice and I will wear them, also I received all the items I purchased (didn’t get an email anything was out of stock), I hope everyone gets what they ordered and likes what they receive!

    • I received my shoe order today. I received a cute pair of burgandy and suede flats. An awesome pair of tan suede fringed wedges ( my favorite!) An aweful pair of nude colored jelly sandles, and a really sharp pair of black ( leather look) ankle strapped sandles with a unique look. 3/ 4 isn’t bad. Unfortunately, I live in Ohio and will have to wait to enjoy these until next year. I think the spring sale will have all of the fall goodies.

    • Thanks for sharing!

    • Ooh, you got a really nice variety! Especially the shoes. I ordered 2 pair plus 1 dress – this is my first order ever from ModCloth and I think it should be arriving today or tomorrow. I hope I like at least 1 of the 3 items so it will feel worth my $44!

  10. “Unfortunately, we were unable to fulfill a portion of your order due to an oversale — we’re so sorry! You have not been charged for the oversold item(s), and your new total is listed at the end of this email”

    Bummed that was for 1 apparel item πŸ™ at least I’m getting two dresses.

  11. Has anyone else gotten emails that part of their order can’t be filled because they oversold?

    No shoes for me even though I had my confirmation email at 9:03 am. Really?

    They sent a code for 10% off a future order in the next 90 days.. πŸ™

    • No, but for those intetesred in dresses I got an alert that they have dresses. It was size XS – L.

    • May I ask what size you ordered?

      • I ordered a 9.5 for the shoes.

        • Bummer. I almost ordered 9.5 because I wasn’t sure how ModCloth shoes fit (I find their dresses fit small). I ordered size 9 with no problem, haven’t received my order yet though.

          • I’ve ordered shoes and clothes from ModCloth before. While their clothes run small (for future non stylish surprise orders read the reviews they are usually spot on regarding sizing) I never had sizing issues with their shoes.
            I can’t wait for my order. It first was scheduled to get here yesterday and then sometime during the day yesterday it was updated to a 20th delivery! Which is nuts because as far as I know FedEx does not deliver on Sundays…

  12. I was thinking….In the spring sale, they sent boots, so I hope that I don’t receive a whole bunch of sandles, lol.

    • I was so hoping for a coat or boots but you’re probably right. It will probably be end if season stuff they want to clear out…

      • Oooo, that would actually work for me! I had to size down in the shoes because they ran out of my size so quickly. I usually go the 1/2 step down if the shoes are open toed/sandals so I’d love sandals in this case. If I do get awesome boots that are too tight I will be very sad…

  13. I purchased earlier in the day. I purchased 2 each of the shoes, apparel, and dresses.

  14. I love SS, but I’m also cautious as last time, I received two of the exact same dress… that did not even come close to fitting.

  15. I got 4 dresses and 4 apparel. The shoes were already sold out in my size. :/ I miss the old prices, but these are still a deal for ModCloth. It makes it hurt a bit more if you get something you don’t like, though.

  16. Wasn’t overly thrilled with the last few rounds but I also had $20.00 of credit since one of my dresses from the last round of SS has a huge hole in it. I’m also kind of in between sizes so I decided to just get a M & L of both dresses and apparrel and 2 sz 10 shoes. I hope the shoes work for me at the very least (last time I go the most HIDEOUS pair of jelly/plastic red pumps with a big heart on the toe – EWWWW!! lol)

    Ohhh Stylish Surprise – I can only blame myself when I get a box of ugly πŸ™‚

  17. Did apartment stuff sell out immediately or was it never available to begin with?

    • Never available it seems. Same for Jewelry/Accessories.

    • Just dresses, apparel, and shoes this time :/

  18. I had a couple of pair of shoes (size 8.5) in my cart – I was having some trouble checking out using PayPal on the ModCloth app, so I switched to credit card. In that time, the shoes in my cart sold out ?. Looks like things are going fast!

    • I had the same problem – they ran out of my size (8’s) so I added a 7.5 & 8.5 and hoped for the best but by the time I pressed the place my order button the 8.5’s were gone too. Very frustrating! Especially when some people were able to order 5+ pairs…

    • Same thing happened to me too πŸ™ Bummer!

  19. I got three pairs of shoes, 8.5. I then went back a few minutes later, that size is sold out. I have gotten great boots in the past, so I hope I get lucky again. Or at least something I can wear to work and be on my feet all day.

  20. Modcloth is all vintage stuff right? (Excuse my ignorance)…

    • Vintage-inspired – everything they send will be new! πŸ™‚

  21. I might have gone a little overboard this time. I ended up with 8 apparel, 7 pairs of shoes, and 5 dresses.

  22. Of course this had to go live when I was stuck in a meeting and they are all out of shoes in my size! Boo!

    • Same here:(

  23. I got 4 pairs of shoes and 6 dresses. Crossing my fingers that it is all different brands/designs. πŸ™‚

  24. There hasn’t been one of these in a while! I think I’m going to skip. I could get a dress for my sister for her birthday (in January). Hopefully they will do another one before Christmas, and I will get to it in time! They are already sold out of my sizes. :/

  25. I’ve never bought anything from ModCloth or looked at the clothes on their website… I’m not sure it’s really my style, but I just bought 1 dress and 2 shoes! I’m pretty sure that’s a sign of a shopping addiction. (I was hoping they wouldn’t have my sizes left, but they did, so I bought.)

  26. I still have the top that I got last mystery bag new with tags on it πŸ™ it never fit right. HOWEVER, I found my favorite pair of boots ever from the mystery bag (and boots almost never fit me!) so I ended up just getting 4 pairs of shoes this time! They still have 8.5 by some miracle!! Thank you so much for the reminder Liz, I wouldn’t have even checked until later if I didn’t see the email!

    • Yay! Fingers crossed you get more great shoes and boots! πŸ™‚

      • Thanks! I hope so, if not at least I can try and swap them!

  27. I missed this going on sell and shoes in my size are already sold out. That’s what I wanted most since last time I got a great pair of boots. Plus raising the prices and paying shipping it isn’t a really good gamble anymore. The dresses I’ve gotten, 1 out of 5 I liked and I’ve only gotten two apparel items, one I liked and the other I can’t even swap. Passing this time, I always want home accessories but miss it every time.

  28. Hey Liz, I gave you heads up too right when it debuted (well slightly after since I STILL missed home). When I checked out at 945 and again right after, all sizes were still available. Now over half are gone. I wanted accessories so bad and was ready this time and they didn’t do it! Boo! Oh well. Finally got shoes, 3 pairs! I’m hoping for no heels but if I do get them watch my swap page and I’ll trade with someone who does like heels. Most of theirs are small heels though which is good. Hoping for brogues or flats! Also got 3 apparel and 1 dress (didn’t really like my dresses last time). Yay so happy!

    • Hi sorry I missed your comment. For some reason it was under the Nicely Noted review. I’ll update this post. Thanks!

  29. I bought 2 dresses and 1 apparel item- because you know, everyone seemed excited about it and I just couldn’t help myself. 1 dress surprise= receiving 1 dress, right? After purchasing- looked at their selection, and some things are really cute, and some are really not my style.. fingers crossed that I get the cute stuff!

  30. My first order – I bought a dress and a pair of shoes. Hopefully I like them!!

  31. The shoes in my size always sell out the quickest which is a bummer because I remember when Liz reviewed shoes she bought and they were cute. I didn’t have a good experiencing in terms of sizing with their apparel… So I went with 2 dresses. I am sincerely hoping they are super gorgeous and they fit!! So fingers crossed!!!!!

    • How do you find the sizing? Running too small or too large?

      • I feel they can run small. I always size up.

  32. I got 4 pairs of shoes. Shipping only 4.00. I chose not to purchase clothing, sizes were sold out. I’m hoping I get a pair of boots! Fingers crossed.

  33. I got 1 dress, 3 apparel and 2 shoes. I can’t wait to see what I get! I really wanted the home but missed it! I was surprised my sizes were still available.

  34. Thanks for the heads up!!! I was able to snag one of each. I had to go large instead of XL on the apparel item so fingers crossed it’s something I can make do with, I’m in between.

    • Weird because I had to get L as XL was sold out in apparel! I would prefer XL.

  35. I got 2 apparel, 1 dress, and 2 shoes. Eee!

  36. I got a dress and 2 shoes!!! Clothing item was sold out in my size and size above πŸ™ or I would have bought more.

  37. The shoes in my size sold out as I was checking out. πŸ™ Oh well, next time I guess.

  38. I think they did raise prices…but I got 4 shoes, 1 dress and 3 apparel items. Fingers crossed! I would have gotten more than one dress but they are soooo short and I am 5’9 1/2. Basically plan on wearing with leggings only if you get a dress from them and are over 5’5.

  39. I ended up with two apparel, two dresses, and a pair of shoes, plus a tunic and a cat hair clip so I could use a $20 off $100+ coupon I had. This is my first time purchasing anything from ModCloth, so I’m hoping it all fits!

  40. I just chatted with a very nice employee who resolved my small issue in like 10 seconds. She was fun to talk to and efficient! Thanks Sarah L.!

    I asked about home and accessories. She said they didn’t do acc this time, but that home sold out right away. I can’t believe I missed that department AGAIN lol. Maybe my 5 pairs of shoes will console me when they get here. πŸ˜€

    • Wow, I saw the boxes at like 9:40a ET and Home wasn’t an option. Guess it sold out within 40 mins then. Bummer.

  41. I ordered 3 pairs of shoes and 4 apparel items. I can’t wait to get them.

  42. First time for me! Last time, by the time I went to check out everything was sold out! I got 2 pairs of shoes and 2 apparel items! Excited!

  43. Did they raise the prices on these? I thought everything used to be 10 dollars. Not such a good deal anymore IMO. I still have things from last time I can’t trade.

    • These are the same prices they had in March 2015. Haven’t been raised since then.

  44. I guess it’s official…. No home or accessories. πŸ™ Let’s see how long I give up on this hope and stop checking their website every few minutes like a mad woman.

    • Yeah, that and the fact my shoe size was gone has me saying, no thank you.

  45. I bought 2 of the dresses and 2 of the clothing. I love the Mod lines and am so excited to see plus sizes there. Thanks for the heads up I am excited to see what I get. πŸ™‚

  46. Ok I got 3 pairs of shoes, 1 dress, 3 apparel items. I’m sooo pumped! Wish there would have been accessories this time:(.
