It’s been a cold wintry day here. Time to share the rest of my order from the Modcloth January 2016 Stylish Surprise Sale. I’ve worn the two shirts this winter that I bought from the March 2015 Surprise Sale. I’ve purchased dresses from Modcloth in the past that I loved. Will I like my mystery apparel and shoes?

ModCloth offers “Stylish Surprise” mystery grab bags a couple times a year. Last week they offered:

ModCloth Stylish Surprise Dresses – $20 (XS-4X)

ModCloth Stylish Surprise Apparel – $15 (XS-4X)

ModCloth Stylish Surprise Shoes – $10 (5.5-10)

You can buy as many as you want as long as they’re in stock – you select the size, and there’s free shipping at $75, so most people buy multiples.

Modcloth confused everyone by having the sale in January instead of March. Further confusion is upon me because the apparel items I received are summer items. The 100% polyester shirt is hand wash cold and line dry. The material makes me think the shirt should be paired with a blazer. However, it is low cut and see-through. I don’t’ see it being appropriate for a professional work environment. I have no clue what to do with this shirt.

The S Line Black Label sheer white shirt reaches to my knees. It has pockets that you can easily see in the picture. The material is 65% polyester and 35% cotton. I’m not sure what to think of either shirt. The first shirt might work with a jacket or blazer. I could wear the second shirt over clothing that I don’t want to ruin. Maybe Modcloth is preparing me for my next career of winning the over 40 white t-shirt contest?

Shoes!

Will I fare better with the shoes?

The Quipid Ballet Flats in Blush are flat. They fit comfortably although I felt like I was walking on bare ground. The shoes have possibilities.

The City Classified Aaron Low Heel Oxford has a velcro strap. My 16-year-old took the last picture and did not tell me the Velcro strap wasn’t lined up. The shoes are comfortable. I will wear them if I can line up the velcro straps properly.

I loved the two shirts that I received in the March 2015 sale and been wearing them all winter. This time, I did not like the shirts as much. I ordered an apparel item for my sister. She received a gorgeous green short sleeve top with detailing on the bottom. I wasn’t able to use her cellphone picture because the quality was poor. I’m jealous!

I was hoping for either wild crazy shoes or boots. I will wear the shoes. I like the Oxfords a lot. I do plan to order again if they run a sale in March!!!

    I’m so confused,lol. I ordered 3 dresses, 6 shoes, and 2 apparel. Spring/ Summer items? I thought that the last SS was for that. I received sandals, flats, and summer clothing during the last sale. I was hoping this was fall/ winter items…..Surprise! Now, I am not as curious/ excited to see what I receive. I guess I will be ordering during the next SS, whenever it happens.

    • PA Anna

      Bonny, I agree. I thought it as going to be fall/winter items. Let us know what you receive!I do wonder if that means ModCloth will be holding more surprise sales this year.

      • BONNY

        My order will be arriving tomorrow. I will let you know what I receive. If I can figure out how to post pics, I will.

        I received 3 summer dresses. 1 was so ugly that it was actually cute! A tight 50’s black and pink sweater with a satin emblem on the upper right chest ( the kind that you see with the poofy skirts and saddle shoes in the movie Grease). 2 flats, one pair of black Patten leather wedge heals, 3 sandles. And a summer shirt.
        I would guess that they will be having another SS soon! Next time, I’m going to order each category separately. I noticed that they try to fit everything into one box.

        • PA Anna

          It sounds like an interesting assortment! Any favorites?

          • BONNY

            My favorite was the sock hop shirt, but it didn’t like my boobs. The red and black ocean themed dress is so quirky and well made, but not quite my style.

          • PA Anna

            Too bad about the shirt It sounded fun. I keep hoping a dinosaur dress shows up in my surprises. I would wear it out with my little guy.

            let me tell you about my lularoe watermelon dress…

      • BONNY

        I will take pics and try to load them for you guys.

          • BONNY

            I couldn’t figure out how to upload my pics. When do you think you’ll get your SS items?

          • Brandy

            They got posted a few days ago. I think if you look on the sidebar they are hanging around. I will come back and send you the link when I am back at my desk.

    The shoes are cute. I like the button down shirt. It looks like a shirt you can you use over your regular clothes while painting or doing other arts and crafts.

    • PA Anna

      It does! i feel the urge to create.

    You can wear a nude came under those shirts. I think it’s more professional-looking to do so regardless of sheerness.

    Those shoes are so cute! I’m kicking myself for not taking the lunge.
