I haven’t purchased a single item of new clothing in over a year! I have picked up a few items used but I don’t think I have done too shabby in being choosier with clothing. It hasn’t been difficult since I hate shopping for new clothes anyway but I have walked away from a few cute pieces that resulted in major FOMO. I actually do need some cool weather clothing and have a huge discount coupon from Modcloth to use. I’ve been curating my order for over a week, it’s getting a little ridiculous and I think it’s time to check out. If you’ve never shopped at Modcloth, it used to be an online-indie boutique that offered tons of different, offbeat designs from a variety of labels. Now, they are owned by Jet.com – yup, owned by Wal-Mart. I don’t love that they are owned by a store that I refuse to shop at. I don’t feel that the quality (for better or worse) or cost of the items has changed, I can still find all of my favourite labels there but I wish they were owned by anyone but Wal-Mart. Even before this, an issue that I’ve always had with Modcloth is that the quality doesn’t always match the price. I’ve purchased some shockingly cheap-feeling items, since they are primarily an online retailer, it’s a gamble but I’ve never had an issue returning items. So anyway, here’s what’s in my bag!
Pam Breeze-ly Long Sleeve Tunic – I love these tops and they come in a ton of colors. They are perfect with leggings, tucked into a skirt, with jeans – super easy to wear and so flattering. I have my eye on the olive and black.
Palpable Perks Knit Top – I have this top in the navy, I really like it and am surprised at the poor reviews! It’s a basic top with a touch of flare from the cute bow-tie embellishment. I tend to wear a cardigan or blazer over it as the fabric is on the lighter side but overall very comfortable. I’m picking up the basic black, shocking 😛
Ready to Ruffle Knit Top – The texture of this one looks totally adorable and I like the ruffled neck line. I’m torn between the tan or the green, I will probably go tan since I don’t own anything this color.
Admired Archivist Knit Top – I feel like I’m purchasing a lot of basic tops but most of my work tops are a little worse for wear (thank you, natural deodorant).
Spotted in Dots Mid Skirt
Oh, Hello Polka Dot A Line Skirt
Just This Sway A Line Skirt
All or Nothing Pleated Midi Skirt
Print Appeal A Line Dress – I have a weak spot for critter patterns such as this, more of my clothing is embellished with raccoons, dogs, elephants, cats, bats, etc than not.
Crazy for you Leopard Cardigan – I mean, what can’t I wear this with?!
I think I’ve made some solid choices, many of these items can be worn in winter as well. I’ll report back on what I think of everything, like I said, it’s always a bit of a gamble. Let me know if you’ve shopped at Modcloth before and what you thought!
