ModCloth Stylish Surprise Box Review – March 2016
A few times a year, ModCloth launches their “Stylish Surprise” – mystery items at a deep discount (you get to pick the category and size).
Here were the categories and prices this time:
- Dresses: $20
- Apparel: $20
- Shoes: $15
FYI – this is completely sold out, but make sure to sign up for notifications at the end of this post to get an email alert the next time the Stylish Surprise is available!
My Subscription Addiction pays for this box. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes)
I got one Apparel Surprise, one Dress Surprise, and one Shoes Surprise.
Soda Shoes Boots
First up – my shoes! Look how cute these boots are!
I was really happy to see these boots – and I got them for only $15! That’s a value I’m thrilled with because these feel like pretty good quality.
However, there is one big problem I have with them…
They’re a size 7.5. I wear (and correctly ordered) size 11. I looked at the box and discovered that the issue was that the box is marked as size 11 but the shoes aren’t, and whoever picked my shoes didn’t check them first.
I contacted customer service and asked about exchanging them for a new surprise in the correct size, but since the stylish surprise is sold out, they (understandably) didn’t have the inventory to do so. So, they just refunded me, which I’m still happy with.
Threads Supply Hooded Coat
This coat is amazing. It’s thick and heavy, feels nice, and fits like a glove. And the sleeves are long enough!
It’s also completely lined with this great red plaid fabric. I’m thrilled with this coat for $20.
Alythea Grey Floral Maxi Dress
What a great dress! It’s hard to see here, but the lining only goes to mid-thigh, and it’s just the semi-sheer floral fabric that goes all the way as a maxi. I wasn’t sure how I’d like this dress but I really love it. The print is gorgeous, and the fit is good, too. And hey, the top is even nursing friendly!
Verdict: Again, I’m very surprised at how happy I am with my items. I loved my items last time, too, and thought maybe it was a fluke but here we are! Even though I can’t wear the shoes, customer service was prompt and easy to work with, and left me with a satisfied solution. I’m also a little surprised the clothing fits me so well (again), since my past experience with ModCloth clothing has been hit or miss with sizing (especially in the hips and bust). My first ever ModCloth Stylish Surprise was a few years ago and I don’t remember if I got a dress or apparel, but I remember it being something that was totally not my style, so I wasn’t expecting to have a second time around that I’m really happy with. For $55, I’m thrilled!
