Every once in a while, especially at the end of a season, Modcloth has what they call "stylish surprise". For $10, they will send you a random piece of clothing or pair of shoes in your selected size. Other than that, it's completely random. Could be a $200 dress or a $35 pair of shoes. It's up to fate.
Of course, I had to jump on this wagon. Because I love being surprised. But in the end, it didn't work out for me because I forgot that Modcloth is totally not my style. So it's my own fault. Either way, here's what I got. I bought both the clothes version and shoe version for $24 shipping included.
Seychelles Heels in Petunia (Originally $130)
There is nothing wrong with these heels. They are relatively expensive, well made and comfortable. But they are completely not my style. In fact, they're already up on Ebay.
Gilli Dress (I have no idea $40?)
Again. It fits fine and seems well made. But I don't like this color or style.
I'm sad this didn't work out for me. I really want to try a clothing subscription box or something, but I just can't find the right aesthetic.
