ModCloth’s Summer’s Last Hurrah Sale Is Hurrah-Worthy


If you don’t already know, Mod Cloth is an online alternative/vintage/awesome clothing and accessory store featured over 700 independent designers. Unfortunately, high quality independent fashion can be expensive, and so for that reason I have always considered ModCloth a sort of fantasyland, like the world where Jenny Shimizu and Shane McCutcheon feed me grapes and remember my parents’ birthdays. Luckily, ModCloth is having an amazing sale right now with many items up to 70% off! Still no word on the Shimizu-McCutcheon grape collab.

Also, notably and by popular demand, Autostraddle now has an affiliate account with ModCloth, so anything you purchase via a link from this website, we’ll get a kickback!


Some of my favorite sale picks:
Fashion Fix Earrings in Pliers – $2.99



Drop Me a Line Blazer in Red – $23.99


The Places You’ll Rainbow Pants – $26.99



Acoustic Idol Top in Grass – $16.99



Strawberries and Boheme Dress – $16.99

ModCloth is a great business to support and even greater to support when things are cheap! Happy sale-hunting!

  1. OMGosh… Skinny ties *and* an amazing, indie designer sale?! Sometimes Autostraddle just gets me.

    I’m about to go spend an insane amount of money. To justify it, I may be wearing an inordinate amount of dresses to A-Camp.

  2. How many of you already own Modcloth stuff? I frequently perve over their collection, but when I find something that interests me, there’s always been enough negative reviews to make me hold back. (that lovely pink dress, for example, apparently looks really bad over the hips :( ) Has anyone had super positive experiences?

    • Yeah, I noticed that too! On all the dresses I liked, there were loads of negative comments about things not fitting, or – even worse in my opinion – being cheaply made, with stitching that gives out easily. People must be so disappointed with these clothes if they bought them full-price…

      Shopping for clothes is so stressful, online and offline.

    • I stopped ordering from them because they fucked up my orders three times in a row (sending me broken stuff, sending wrong items, items didn’t look like they did in the photos, etc.) and I’m in Canada so I had to pay shipping costs every time I sent things back. It’s true that they’re good at making amends when they screw up, but three times in a row is a bit much. Sad though, ’cause they do have some neat stuff.

    • I have several things from ModCloth… they’re all pretty good! I shop carefully, read the reviews, look at the material/construction, etc. There are some great finds, but there is also some cheap, poorly made stuff. If you go by reviews, you could search for “top rated” items.

    • I’ve got a couple of dresses from them, I find they’re good because they really check the sizes (thats why they can note that something runs large/small etc) but its pretty common for me to see a dress even in a store and think its beautiful and then when I try it on it just doesnt fit well or flatter me, so its understandable that you’d run that risk online shopping too. I just try to buy styles I know suit my figure.
