One of the online boutiques that I adore is Modcloth. They offer clothing, accessories and home decoration pieces that are very unique. Most of their items have a retro and vintage feel and they carry a wide variety of brands.

While browsing their Website about six months ago, I discovered what they call a “Stylish Surprise”. This is when they offer a piece of clothing, accessory or decoration for an amazing price. I was not aware of these offers before this first encounter so unfortunately missed that round of the surprise. ( Here is my April Modcloth Stylish Surprise review)

Now let me tell you these usually sell out in about 24 hrs (sometimes less). Modcloth has some serious fans. A couple months ago though I finally caught the sale on time to order the apparel “Stylish Surprise”. It was $15 and they guaranteed to send any kind of clothing from tops to dresses and even coats; in the original price range of $29.99 to $299.99.

I love a lot of their clothing so I jumped on this deal. Have I also said it’s a mystery ha ha. I think I have established enough evidence on what mystery deals mean to me. I can’t get enough of the suspense and feel like I am in an Agatha Christie book; doing serious detective work to uncover the big secret of the elusive dress.

After about ten days of wait, I received an exquisite dress from the brand Darling adorned with a charming flower embellished peter pan collar and flower detailed waist. The original price of the dress was around $130 so this was an incredible deal and the fit of the dress is spot on. I guess with this purchase luck was on my side.

I kept it simple with the accessories as the dress is enough of a statement.  The earrings are from Wantable and the bracelet is Jewelmint. My current obsession peep toe lace booties, also seen here, finished off the look.
