ModCloth Clothing, Accessories, and Decor Stylish Surprise Review – July 2018
A few times a year, ModCloth announces their “Stylish Surprise”, where they sell select mystery items you at a deep discount. We’re talking typically pricier pieces for around $10-$20! You choose the category and select the size, but otherwise, you don’t know what you will receive until it arrives in the mail; hence the surprise! It can be a bit of a gamble because you can get anything from their wide range of styles and aesthetics, but that is the fun of it all!
FYI – no boxes are currently available for purchase. Stylish Surprises sell out incredibly fast! The great thing about Stylish Surprise, though, is there always seems to be another one right around the corner.

ModCloth Stylish Surprise Review of Decor, Accessories, Tops, & Outerwear
As with normal ModCloth orders, the box comes with an invoice.
“I Donut Care” Desk Plaque – Estimated Value $29
My value is estimated off of similar desk plaques because I couldn’t find this exact one on their website. This is my Decor surprise. The Apartment/Decor category is usually the first to sell out and I’ve never seen it in stock when I’ve ordered. I know these Modcloth Stylish Surprises are fundamentally random and notoriously hit or miss. I’ve heard of people getting everything from a plastic wall hook to a pricey Bluetooth speaker! I got a punny desk plaque. It’s well-made and would be cute for the right person, but it’s unfortunately just not my style.
Shining Smiles Lip Scrub and Balm Set in Rose – Retail Value $25
I guess this is my Accessories surprise. There’s no Stylish Surprise category for beauty or body that this would fit in better. It’s definitely not an accessory, though. That being said, the products are nice – the scent is sweet and flowery, and the scrub has a good grit to it and comes with a little spatula to dig out of the pot. I’m pretty disappointed I didn’t get an actual accessory though.
Collectif Regularly Scheduled Sass Button-Up Top – Retail Value $45
This is my Top surprise. The design of the top itself is actually great – it fits like a glove and is really quite flattering, although just a little short on my torso. I just don’t know what to do with this print. In my head, I’m really thinking, “do I dislike the print more than I like the cut of the top?” The flamingos just aren’t me – they might be more so, if they were less realistic-looking if that makes sense? I want to love this top so badly, but I’m just not sure if I’ll actually wear it anywhere.
Verified Visionary Coat – Retail Value $199
This coat is my Outerwear surprise! It’s quite a nice coat – the quality is obvious. The fabric is a completely embroidered textile. The construction is solid, too, and it has pockets! I’m really happy with how it fits me. It’s definitely not something I’d pick out for myself and I didn’t love it when I first pulled it out of the box, but it has grown on me! I think the print is pretty, although not something I normally wear. I think I want to give it a shot, and style and wear it, but that’ll have to wait until Fall and cooler weather. I have to say, though, that I have had great success with outerwear from Modcloth! I’ve ordered it two or three times and the items I’ve received have been chic and high-value.
Verdict: This Stylish Surprise was interesting! I was happy to grab a decor surprise for the first time in years, even though it didn’t end up being something I love. Both the top and the coat fit me really well and are flattering, which is a win! The prints for both are just outside of my comfort zone, but the quality and designs are lovely.
I paid $55 plus $5.99 shipping for the $15 Top, $20 Outerwear, $10 Accessories and $10 Decor surprises. I received $298 worth of items!
