As I have said before I have lusted after a lot of the clothes on ModCloth for a long while but I am always wary as it is US based and I am afraid of the postage and the dreaded customs. So when I heard that ModCloth a couple of times a year have a big sale selling their stock from $5.00 to $20.00 depending on what you are getting I was in. The catch is you don't know what you are getting so for $20.00 you get a dress that originally retailed between $30.00 or $299.00, a bit like fashion lucky dip. As I figured it could be sold on, that $20.00 is like around £13.50 and that I like a surprise I was in.
The only problem was I was bang in between sizes so I ordered a 2XL and a 3XL, which at $40.00 meant I incurred a hefty £13.44 customs charge, a rookie error and if I do this again I will order the dresses separately as the postage is less than customs.
So what did I get for my $40.00 I got a beautiful blue and green dress in the 2XL and a really pretty purple dress which Katt Cupcake also received in the 3XL which unfortunately I didn't have the boobs to fill out so it has been moved on to a better home.
The dress is really lovely in a sort of moleskin/velvet and has an exposed brass zip with a lovely angel wing as the zipper, being a bad blogger I have not got a photo of this. I have gone for a vaguely 90's styling crossed with school girl chic on this dress as it reminds me of dresses from that period and catholic school girl plaid.
And my Janine Basil Solar system headband.
I also wore my Urban Decay Catfight lipstick but it had worn off a bit by the time I took these pictures and my Dolly Cool Virgin Mary Kitty necklace.
Some other lovely bloggers also got the Stylish Surprise and are posting today so share the love and have a look at what they got.
