I am not normally a Debbie Downer on "the blog", but I felt obliged to rant a little bit about Mod Cloth. I promise I will try to limit my grumpiness in this little place of peace going forward. I just couldn't help myself today.
So, a few weeks ago Mod Cloth posted on Facebook about a limited quantity "Grab Bag" promo. I love their website and most of the products that they have to offer. When I saw this, seemingly amazing offer, I jumped on it.
The deal was spend $20 and get $70 worth of merchandise. Right there, I should have remembered the old saying, "If it's too good to be true, it probably is". My excitement over took my intelligence and I purchased the grab bag in matter of minutes of reading the Facebook post.
We all like surprises, right? Most of us like Mod Cloth, right? So, it seemed, at the time, like a win-win situation, right? WRONG!!
My package arrived and I couldn't wait to see what $70 worth of stuff I got for $20. I opened it as fast as I could, ripping and tearing the box in lightning speed.
Then I just froze, jaw dropped, eyes as big as quarters and with a big gulp....and said out loud, "SERIOUSLY"?!? This is it? This stuff looks like something from a freaking gumball machine or from The Dollar Tree.
So, here it is folks...this is what I got for $20 + shipping...looking back, after the anger passed, I actually can laugh about it now. I mean, it is pretty comical!
|Reusable tote (kind of cute), TIGHT blue camisole that hits my mid-thigh, neon yellow tube-top bra, Holly Hobby bow clip, peanut earrings and a flower headband|
|This is the UGLIEST bow and print I have ever seen! My little girls didn't even like it. It looks like it's from Holly Hobby or Little House on the Prairie.|
|Gold earrings shaped like peanuts...I have to admit, I have actually worn these twice. My friends laughed at me and asked, "Are those nuts on your ears?"|
|This is okay, but really not my style. I will most likely never wear it.|
|Brand of the neon bra and the waaaaaay too long tank. No, I will NOT "See You on Monday" or any other day of the week for that matter. I know neon colors are the latest trend, but this? Come on!|
Okay, you tell me, did I expect too much? I am being bratty? Be honest. And, yes, like I said before, I can laugh about it now. It gave me something to blog about, right?
Cheers to NEVER participating in a "grab bag" promotion again! Oh, the lessons we learn in life.
