I decided that a cold Saturday afternoon was a pleasant way to embarrass myself in the neighborhood by trying on the dresses that arrived from the Modcloth January 2016 Stylish Surprise Sale. While my neighbors walked their dogs and took down Christmas decorations, my husband and I gave them plenty of gossip to share among themselves. I’ve purchased dresses from Modcloth in the past that I loved. Will I love my mystery dresses?

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 items I received are summer items. My husband was reluctant to zip up the blue and white Taylor Dress resulting in my awkward pose. I left a little gap between the dress and the wrap to show you that it is sleeveless. The wrap is from the December Artistry Gifts Box.

The 100% polyester dress is lined and has pockets.  I’m not sure how I feel about the dress yet. It’s hard for me to tell without it being properly zippered. It was comfortable to wear.

My husband’s favorite

The Pink Owl Navy Blue Dress is a size smaller than the other two dresses. I found with ModCloth I need to order a size up in dresses.

I decided to pair it with the bath towel from the Globein Jan Benefit Basket. The 100% polyester dress needs to be laundry by hand in cold water and dry flat.

My neighbor stopped walking his dog to watch.
Everything is covered.

The dress is comfortable to wear. I was able to walk around without showing anything extra. I feel like I should be wearing 5″ stilettos and trying out for a subscription box blogger reality show.

I joked with my husband that there would be another wedding renewal dress in the box. The 1950s Style Ivory Cotton Sateen Scallop Brenda Swing Dress by Queen of Hartz fits. This white dress is my second wedding type dress from a ModCloth Stylish Surprise Sale.

Ignore the bad hair day. I wanted to show that I paired the dress with the necklace from the January Your Bijoux Box.

The dress is 97% cotton and 3% spandex. I feel like I should be going somewhere special.

I agreed to wear the second dress for a night in with my husband. I’m not sure how I feel about the other two dresses. I hope everyone enjoyed seeing what I received. Remember my husband and I are not professional stylists!

    Great review as always! I am still waiting to see what I was sent. OMG if we both get wedding dresses I will laugh. I can creepily keep asking my cat to marry with me, I mean… we are ALREADY living together! 😉

      I can’t wait to see your dress! There are people on the internet that will marry you to your cat!

    Boobalisious and great legs! So not fair. The dresses all look nice on you and fit well. The Pink Owl is a little short but opaque tights as Sarah suggested would work.

    What is your normal style? I’m a dark colors kind of girl and only into flowers or lace as accents so these aren’t for me personally. Modcloth and I aren’t super compatible but I like their stuff on other people!

      Thank you for the compliment! I’m a jeans and sweaters kind of girl. I do wear color because it makes me look more vibrant.

    I can’t believe i posted the Blue Owl Dress. I would never wear it outside of my house. I’m too old for short dresses.

    • Brandy

      but you have such nice legs!!!!

      • PA Anna

        Thanks!!!

    • Sarah

      I think you looked lovely in that dress, you could always pair it with opaque tights if the length makes you uncomfortable. I ordered a dress and two apparel items, they haven’t arrived yet. The last Stylish surprise I received was a bust so I’m hoping for something more my style this time.

        Thank you Sarah! I did not think of wearing tights. Be sure to let us know what you receive! I hope it will be more your style this time.

  • AngelaR

    I like the feminity of the styles of the dresses.

    • PA Anna

      I agree!

  • Brandy

    You are SO brave to wear that SHORT dress in the cold!!! It looks good! too bad mine didn’t come today, i could’ve worn a wedding dress (but my wedding dress was navy blue so…)!

      I can’t wait to see your order!
