Modcloth Haul

Friday, August 8, 2014

I have loved Modcloth from afar for years. In college, I used to rabidly go through their website to bookmark all my dream and wish list dresses. I love the vintage feel to their apparel, but sadly could never afford the spendy price tag that came with the items I wanted. Finally having a big kid job that carries a paycheck, I decided to take the plunge and pick up a few items that I had been coveting. 
The first item being the Air of Adorable dress in Balloons. I fell in love with this dress online and it immediately went in my cart as my dress splurge. I mean come on, little hot air balloons with little faces on them? How could anyone resist? The dress came and it looked just as adorable in person. It did have some weird items in the pockets though like kleenex tissue and a wrapper for a crayola crayon? I thought that was a little odd as it didn't say anything about the dress being worn before. Turns out, it didn't matter anyway because the dress was a little too tight in the bust area for it to be a proper fit. I ended up returning it since there was no ability to exchange it for a slightly bigger size since it was completely out of stock! I returned it for a store credit, hoping to find another Modcloth dress to love in the future!
How cute is this hidden owl coffee mug? I love the scallop details on the brim and the curly handle. It makes me so excited to get up and make coffee in the morning so I can play peek-a-boo with the little owl inside!
Another thing I picked up was this little kitchen essentials storage set. I love the way it looks on the counter and it fits all my little knick knacks.
This has to be my second favorite item from my Modcloth purchase, aside from my new hidden owl mug. This Prim & Proper makeup bag combines polka dots and bows, two of my favorite things, and is large enough to fit all of my clunky makeup with space to spare! As a bonus, it is very easy to wipe clean on the inside should there ever be a spill.
The last item I got was actually a gift for my boyfriend, who is also a coffee lover. It seemed only fair that if I got a new mug that he should too. He really digs the camping mug vibe and this Anchor the Call mug also incorporated my love of adventure and nautical themes! (anchors & adventures...squeal!!!)

What do you think of Modcloth? Is a favorite go to site? Do you enjoy the vintage appeal? Ever had weird things appear in the pockets of their outfits? lol...Let me know in the comments below!

  1. I've never shopped on Modcloth before. Do you think it is worth it? I'm kinda weirded out by the random things in your dress pockets. Sorry it didn't work out. It looked cute. Hopefully they get more in stock! - Kellie

    1. I think it can be worth it to find a really standout outfit for an event or something that has a strong vintage feel to the style. I was super weirded out about the random things in the pockets, but it could have been a one time occurrence as everything else in my package was awesome!

  2. I have always lived looking at the clothes fr Modcloth but I am too nervous to buy something without being able to try it on first. Too bad the dress didn't fit. It's very cute!

    1. I have the exact same reservations so I always closely look at a company's return/exchange policy before I buy so I feel a bit better if it's a super easy process to return, which it was. All I did was print a label, pop it back in the box and send it off. Also, Modcloth has this great review section at the bottom of each item where verified buyers show off how the dress fits on them that can be a real help! I had a slight suspicion that it might not fit in the bust, but it was the only size they had left remotely close to me so I thought I'd take a shot!

  4. Love the anchor mug!! Oh wow I can NOT WAIT for the Stylish Surprise to happen again! Love Modcloth but their sizing is really difficult for me as well. Strange about the stuff in the pockets! I would hope that was a fluke. Great post thank you for sharing. :)

    1. Thanks Joely! My boyfriend loves his anchor mug! Every time he uses it, he feels the need to lean over to me and whisper 'I'm an adventurer!' LOL

    1. I checked it out for years before I made a purchase! I would suggest starting off with small things that won't be a huge disappointment if they aren't what you expected, like little household items or cute notebooks!

  6. I've checked out Modcloth before for shoes, but I never bought anything because I was skeptical about if the value was worth the price. Your post makes me sound like I'll have to go for it, I love that coffee mug!

    1. Ya, I've heard it can be a hit and miss sometimes. I always read the reviews before I think about making a purchase. This way, I can be sure other people have vetted a dress or top before I make the jump!
