postheadericon Shoe Dazzle!!!



Here are some shoes that I have gotten from Shoe Dazzle....Be sure to check them out and get 50% off your first purchase and 20% off the next!
Gracia
$39.95
Purchased for $19.97

MORE ABOUT THE SHOE:
Origin: Imported
Fit: True to size
Material: Faux leather
Color: Blush
Heel Height: 4.5"
*Platform: 1.25" *..*measurements are approximate and may vary by size

***The way that Shoe Dazzle measures the shoe....The heel height has already taken the platform into account. So these shoes are indeed 4.5"

HOW TO WEAR THE SHOE:
With a high-design shape and contrast trim, this pump has a retro, pinup-worthy appeal.



Gorgeous Gracia in polished faux leather looks adorable with dark or patterned tights, a flirty skirt and rhinestone jewelry. Her ultra feminine personality becomes all the more charming when juxtaposed with cuffed skinny jeans and a relaxed blazer.


 
 
 
 
 
 
Janine
$39.95



ABOUT THE SHOE:
 
Origin: Imported
Fit: True to size
Material: Faux leather platform pump
Color: Olive
Heel Height: 3.75" heel
*Platform:0.75" platform*..*measurements are approximate and may vary by size



***The way that Shoe Dazzle measures the shoe....The heel height has already taken the platform into account. So these shoes are indeed 4.5"




HOW TO WEAR THE SHOE:
Who can resist military styling on a charming faux leather platform pump?


Military styling is always on trend—echo Janine’s green hue with olive skinny cargo pants topped with a simple yet classic black tee. Finish the laid-back look with a bit of polish by adorning yourself with a sequined headband and shiny bangle.


I decided to go up a size and order an 11 in both pairs. I think that maybe I could have gone down to a 10 but since the heels are taller than I am use to and the fact that I have wide feet, I think I will stick to ordering 11s from the site. They do not slide off or anything so I doubt going down a size will do anything good for me. If need be I'd rather put those shoe thingys in the shoe to make them fit then to have to stretch a shoe out.

Shoe Dazzle shoes come with a pink shoe bag but one of the shoes did not. Strange. I have tried contacting the company but they have yet to respond.

OVERALL I absolutely adore the shoes and I am exited to see more....

Pink and Black London Tube Dress
w/ Rose
Original $64.00
Clearance $44.98
Purchased $12.49

I fell in love with this dress. I just thought it was cute to the max!!! It's a satin type of material. The top portion is a dusty pink color while the bottom is black. There is a rose on the side (in the picture on the right near the hip) which has rhinestones in the middle of it. I'm pretty sure the rose is removable as I saw a silver clamp where it is attached but I have not tried to remove it. I purchased the dress during the 50% off clearance sale and used a $10 off coupon to lower the price even more. I also got a 5% off diva style discount but that only took off a few cents. Pretty much the $10 discount paid for the high sky shipping Torrid has. They stated that it is a flat rate but my shipping was lower before the change...P.S. Did you know Macy's just did the same thing. GRRRRR!

Anyways....Here is more about the dress:

Party in proper style in this pink and black tube dress. Features removable lace and rhinestone rose pin, pleating design and sweetheart bust. Back-zip entry, elastic waist.


Size 1 is approx 30" from center front

Self: 58% polyesterr 38% cotton, 4% spandex; Contrast: 65% polyester, 32% cotton, 3% spandex; Lining: 100% polyester

Hand wash

Imported
 
So there you have it...the flower is indeed removable...lol. I purchased a size 20 which is my normal size in the store.
 
I have never purchased a dress from Torrid unless it is on clearance. They are just too expensive while the quality often does not match up.
 
I digress....Here are a few other dresses I am eyeing....
 
Come on 50% off!...Hopefully when I have money. LOL.

postheadericon Wet Seal Jacket

I don't really shop wet seal....A BIG reason is because they don't have items in store which makes it difficult to decide what pieces will work for me. In addition to that they don't have the clothes on models which further makes my decisions indecisive.....I have managed to order a few things in the past and only had to ever return one thing....so that's good. And I absolutely LOVE when they have a clearance sale. I've gotten $2 shirts and $5 pants before.......This time I purchased a jacket....


Originally$ $42.50
Sale: $21.25

This adorable jacket is the only look you’ll need this coming season! This leatherette jacket features a button front closure with a sash tie belt, Front slash zip pockets, and banded collar with shoulder epaulettes.

Shell: 100% Polyurethane - Lining: 100% Polyester
Wipe Clean Only
Imported
Colors: Ivory or Black


THOUGHTS:
I wasn't quite sure what size to get. I do know that when it comes to jackets I usually go up a size. Partially due to being able to fit thick shirts/sweaters under it and the other part due to having large arms. I started to go with a 3X but my experience with junior plus size jackets is that a 4X is always better for me. A 4X is the size that I decided to go with despite the size chart. I only hope it is not enormous, particularly in the waist area as I don't think I will have a major problems with the arms. Well maybe the length might be long but I like putting my hands in my jacket sleeves anyways...lol ....I hope that didn't sound strange.
 
Well...Definitely check out the site and see what lovely items you would like to purchase!


UPDATE: 1/28/11
I am sooooo glad I got the 4X. The jacket is indeed a junior size fit which means it is cut small. My chubby arms and my tummy take up the room in most tops. Honestly even though the jacket has some stretch in it, I could NOT have gone down a size. It just would have been too tight. I can zip the jacket up and be comfortable. I don't think I would be able to fit a "real" sweater under it....Maybe one of those thin ones from F21. Overall I am happy with my purchase and this is a great addition to my closet!

postheadericon Target Shoes!!!!

Last month I purchased some shoes from Target and I just wanted to share with you.....


Women's Mossimo Supply Co. Odell Sequin Ballet Flats - Black
$9.08




Women's Xhilaration® Sharee Studded Flats - Tan
$6.98(Now But I purchased when they were $9.98)



FIRST THOUGHT:
I ordered the black sequined ones because I wanted a black flat with a little something extra. I figured I would give these a try since they were definitely in my price range.

As for the tan shoes....Although they are cheaper now, my size is no longer available so I have no regrets on purchasing when they were a few dollars more. The reason behind the purchase is that I wanted a nude shoe. These shoes were the perfect nude for my complexion and they are sooo freaking comfortable!


FIT:
As far as fit goes I could have gone down a size. Previous experience with Target shoes made me order the larger size. I should have known better since these shoes were flats and not heels. But I did not return them as they are not too big where it would bother me. They don't slip off my feet at all. I really think I am a 10.5 in shoes but that size is sooooooo unbelievably rare that I either purchase a 10 or 11.

FINAL THOUGHTS:
I would definitely recommend purchasing the shoes. I would also take a look at all of the other clearance shoes. The tan shoes come in brown and black as well. The black sequin flats come in a blue color.

postheadericon Clarisonic Dupe

So I have been wanting a Clarisonic for a while but I honestly don't have the extra money for it. SO....I went on the hunt for a dupe. I checked out a few youtube videos and narrowed it down to two choices:

The Sun Body Polisher and Self Tan Remover for $49.95

Product Description


Sun's Body Polisher is designed to gently exfoliate, cleanse and smooth your entire body. The rotating removable heads off a variety of functions.

•LARGE BRUSH is used all over the body for a deep cleanse that loofah and other body sponges don't offer.

•SMALL FACIAL BRUSH cleanses your face by getting deep into your pores.

•FACIAL BUFFER aids in the absorption of your favorite moisturizers.

•PUMICE STONE can smooth out those rough areas such as elbows,knees, and heels.



KIT CONTAINS:



•1 Body Polisher

•1 Facial Buffer

•1 Large Brush

•1 Pumice Stone

•1 Small Brush

•Instructive Booklet





and the i-Skin Pore Perfecting System for $26.95

Product Description


•Reduces the appearance of visible pores, fine lines and wrinkles

•Reduces oily areas, dry skin patches and blemishes

•Twice as effective as manual cleansing

•Leaves skin feeling and looking smoother and clearer

•Increases product absorption

•For all skin types - gentle enough for even the most sensitive skin

•Used and recommended by skincare professionals

Intelligent skin care just got smarter with i-Skin's new water-proof Pore Perfecting System for ultimate deep pore cleansing. Clinically shown to be over twice as effective as cleansing by hand. Reduces the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, visible pores, oily areas, dry skin and blemishes. Leaves skin feeling and looking smoother and clearer. An essential product to complete your daily Anti-Aging skincare regimen and the perfect way to maintain healthy, clear and glowing skin. For all skin types. Includes Pore Perfecting Tool, Pore Perfecting Brush Attachement, Foaming Deep Pore Cleanser and Step-by-Step User Guide.



Ingredients:

Aluminum Oxide, Water, Octyl Palmitate, Safflower Oil, Cetearyl Alcohol, Sodium Cetearyl Sulfate, Stearic Acid, Propylene Glycol, Aloe Barbadensis Gel, Panthenol, Lecithin, Cetyl Alcohol, Wheat Bran Extract, Aminomethyl Propandiol, Methylparaben, Propylparaben, Phenoxyethnaol, Lavender Oil, Jasmine Oil.

And the winner was....
 
The i-Skin Pore Perfecting System. A major factor was price for me....Just to give you more insight on the clarisonic....You can get it in different colors. It cost $149 for the clarisonic MIA which is the cheaper of the available versions.
 
 
Say ‘hello’ to Clarisonic Mia


Mia is the new, go-anywhere Sonic Skin Cleansing System in a great compact size. The one-button, one-speed Mia fits your active lifestyle for beautiful, glowing skin wherever life’s adventures take you.

Kit Includes


Cordless Clarisonic Mia

Compact pLink® International Charger

Sensitive Brush Head

1 oz. trial size Gentle Hydro Cleanser



The clarisonic is rechargeable. The i-Skin takes 2 AA batteries and the system itself is not rechargeable. Also the clarisonic's brush head rotates while the i-Skin vibrates

Please keep in mind that I have never tried the Clarisonic....

I would have to say that as of right now I would definately reccomend getting the i-Skin instead of spending a load of money on the clarisonic. I've used the system twice and my face feels so different. I never knew it could be this clean...sad but true. It really exfoliates without being harse on your skin. The bristles are so soft that I didn't think it would clean my face but boy was I wrong! In only two days my face looks and feels smoother. A regular wash cloth just can't do it!

postheadericon Dylan's Candy Bar

Strawberry Licorice Candy Butter Cream

8oz. Body Butter Cream
$5.50

What it is:
A super-rich body moisturizer.


What it does:
It's time to indulge with Dylan's Candy Bar's Strawberry Licorice Candy Butter Cream, the perfect yummy-smelling remedy for very thirsty skin.


What else you need to know:
This unique, protective, non-greasy formula with Vitamin E, Jojoba Seed Oil, and Shea Butter (one of the world's best moisturizers) promotes healing of rough, dry skin all year long.


It smells sooooo good!....Doesn't really smell like anything strawberry though..lol. I really wanted the Body Lotion but sephora.com is all out and I was not about to pay triple the price on the Dylan Candy website. So I just picked this one up.

I was also able to get a free trial size of Bare Escentuals exclusive trio. The set includes:

Bare Escentuals bareMinerals SPF 15 Foundation deluxe sample (0.01 oz) with Mini Brush and Prime Time Primer sample (0.15 oz).



*Disclaimer by Sephora.com* You will be able to select your shade: Fairly Light, Light, Medium Beige, Medium Tan, Medium Dark, Golden Dark, or Medium Deep based on availability. Valid while supplies last. Not valid on previous purchases, nor with purchases of egift certificates or gift cards. Valid for Beauty Insiders only. One offer per order. Cannot be used in conjunction with other promotion codes. Sephora reserves the right to change or end the offer at any time. Learn more about the Beauty Insider program at any Sephora store or online at http://www.sephora.com/beautyinsider.

I wanted to try a mineral based foundation. I have tried one in the past but it made my face dry and didn't really match my color correctly. I always had to mix it with a little bit of regular (liquid foundation) to get my tone or I would look ashy. Maybe this one will be different. Even if not it's free! I picked Golden Dark.

BTW if you have a free standing Sephora store (not in jc penny) then you don't have to make a purchase to receive it. All you have to do is print out the coupon or show it to associate from your phone! If only I had a free standing store in my area.

postheadericon Barry M | Barry M ASOS Exclusive Lip Wand And Kohl Pencil at ASOS

Barry M Barry M ASOS Exclusive Lip Wand And Kohl Pencil at ASOS

Barry M ASOS Exclusive Lip Wand & Kohl Pencil
Originally $12.07
Sale $6.64

I had to order this from Asos. Barry M is not sold here in the states and I have been dying to try anything by this brand. I decided to go ahead and order from Asos as they offer free shipping to the US. The lip gloss is listed as being a bubblegum pink and the eyeliner is in black.....I also ordered:

Jelly Belly Trio Lip Balm Set
Originally $5.17
Sale $3.10

I probably could've found the set here in the states if I would have looked hard enough but with free shipping it didn't cost anything to just order from the site. They also don't charge tax! yay! The trio comes with 3 lip glosses in Bubblegum, Blueberry, and Very Cherry. I definately want the bubblegum and maybe the blueberry but I rarely like anything that smells cherry like so we shall see.


I have never ordered from ASOS before but according to the site I should receive my purchase within one to two weeks. This is acceptable to me since it is coming from the UK and shipping for free! (I think I mentioned that already...I just like free!)

postheadericon Plus Outfit of the Day

I just wanted to show pictures of what I had on today....I will start from the top and work my way down...=]

In my hair I wore:


2-pack
$1.50
I wore one on each side of my hair.

For the actual outfit I wore:


Floral Lace Open Cardigan
$24.80

I wore a white v-neck cami underneath it. ($3.50)

For bottoms I wore black jeggings:
$10.80 (I think)

For shoes I did a wordrobe change....The first pair ended up hurting my feet which is the reason for the change.

I started out with these:
Greeta Giada Boots
$27.xx
Hamricks

Madden Girl Zaney Boot
$59.95
DSW

I also wore my leaf bracelet from a previous haul, a ring from my bday haul, and some simple silver hoop earrings. I also wore two necklaces from f21...


As you might be able to tell everything came from Forever 21+ unless noted.

postheadericon My Review of Deep V-Neck Ruched Dress

Originally submitted at Maurices

This dress has a chic personality with a figure pleasing silhouette. The knit dress has an alluring deep v-neck and stitched gathering details under the bust line. The sleeveless profile keeps the look clean but casual. It's fantastic draping and length makes it perfect to wear to any occasion....


Nice Dress

By Charm from NC on 1/7/2011

 

3out of 5

Fit: Feels true to size

Waist: Feels true to size

Length: Feels true to length

Pros: Washes Well, Body Hugging, Nice Color, Nice Fabric

Cons: Wrinkles Easily

Best Uses: Casual Wear

Describe Yourself: Trendy/Stylish Dresser

Comfort vs Style: Style Driven

I purchased the dress in a teal color. I LOVE the color of the dress. It does wrinkle because when I received it the wrinkles were very noticeable. Like the previous poster commented it is hard to winterize the dress. Putting a tee under it makes it look funny. It is low cut so some may want to wear a cami underneath.

(legalese)

postheadericon shopcraze.com

So...Maybe I'm late but I just found this site called shopcraze.com and I am in love with it. You can get NYX products for cheaper as well as MAC samples!...

I ended up making one purchase and then going back and making another later that night. lol. Ironically enough the second purchase got here before the first. Go figure...Anyways....In this haul I only purchased 3 lip glosses and three eyeshadows.

Here are the NYX Round Lipgloss:


Honey
(a light golden brown that looks pretty clear when on my brown skin)

Natural
( a great nude lipgloss)


Soap Opera Queen
(I seriously think this is the wrong picture associated with this name. The REAL soap opera queen is more like this:

That's a BIIIIIG difference)


Here are the swatches on my skin:


I also purchased NYX Loose Pearl Eyeshadows:



White


Nude


Turquoise

Here are swatches:




The lipgloss were $1.95 each and the eyeshadows were $1.45 each. The only downside is that the site does not have a whole bunch of brands like Cherry Culture but the shipping and item price for many things are a tad cheaper.
