Today's post is going to be a bit different. Instead of just posting what I purchased, I'm goin to post a picture I how I wore it!!!
I decided to wear my denim animal print shirt from Ashley Stewart. Underneath that I wore my nude cami from Forever 21. For my pants I wore my faux leather distressed leggings from Wet Seal. For accessories I wore my Ashley Stewart ALux hoop earrings and my Wet Seal iridescent skimmer flats.
I hope you liked it! What are you excited most for now that it is fall?

Yes I purchased more from Wet Seal. I just can't get enough! Over the weekend Wet Seal had denim for $15! My local store didn't have the jeans I wanted so I ordered online.
I came across some crop tops from the straight sized section and decided to give them a try. I want to do a high waisted skirt with the crop tops. I haven't been able to find a reasonably priced plus sized crop top so when I saw these, I "added to cart"! Take a look...
No free shipping this time around but it was such a good deal that I didn't mind too much. Hopefully the tops fit... If not ebay they will go!
Have you checked Wet Seal out yet?!?

Of Wet Seal that is! I made another purchase because they have had some killer deals! If you don't shop with them then you are missing out!
I'm so excited about the boots! I wish I could have gotten the moto boots in black too but they sold out of my size! They have free shipping mostly on Fridays so you can catch a great deal in top of a great deal!
Did you know the plus size is now in stores? Be sure to check your local store to see of they have it!

I LOVE clothes! I've been looking for a cute body con dress with sleeves. Asos.com had the perfect dress. I found a coupon code to take a few dollars off and with free shipping, I stayed under $20!
My grand total was only $17! I purchased an 18. I could've gone down to a 16 but I have big upper arms so it would've been a little tight but I think it would've stretched a bit. On me the dress is almost knee length and I'm only 5'6". Now all I need is a place to go. Lol.
What accessories and shoes would you pair with this dress?

I know I shouldn't but I just couldn't help it! Forever 21 had an amazing clearance sale. I stocked up on a few things...
I received an email stating that the knotted square earrings were oos. Bummer! But everything else was shipped! The shorts have been on my wish list for quite some time so to get the on clearance and then with 50% off for Labor Day was amazing!!!
I also made another purchase a week ago....
I really wanted the bodycon skirts. They were such a good deal so I couldn't say no!
What have you purchased lately?

I am elated that Wet Seal has finally decided to put their plus size in stores! I'm even more excited that my local store got it! That's a rarity in my state. I did have the pleasure of going into my local store but I was disappointed at the selection. There was such a small plus section compared to the rest of the store. I'm assuming they just want to see how well it sells before they go all out. Hopefully!
With that said, I did make some purchased online because they has a bigger variety.
Three orders in a matter of days! Lol... I might have a problem. With deals so great I just couldn't say no!!!
I'm going to go back into my local Wet Seal to see what's new. Did your Wet Seal get the plus line?

I have a habit of ordering online! You can find the best deals!!! I made two online purchase in the past couple of weeks... For clothing that is. One haul from Wet Seal and the other from Forever 21.
Up first: Wet Seal
I have been wanting the star leggings for so long but every time I went to order, I took them out of my cart. This time I got them! The front panel leggings where new to the site and I immediately fell in love with them. The galaxy skirt is from the straight sizes but the print was to die for. I just couldn't resist. The shoes were a filler to reach my $40 quota in order to get my discount. But for $3, how can you say no? With free shipping and tax of $1.48, I paid $23.47 for everything!!
On to Forever 21:
I have been eyeing the skater skirt for quite some time but it sold out before I could order it. Luckily for me f21 brought it back! Although the bandeau top was paired with the skirt I'm just not sure I want to wear it together but I loved the print too much to say no. The hello kitty phone charm was calling my name. Because I needed to reach $21 to get free shipping, it was a no brainier to buy! With tax of $1.52 and free shipping, I paid $23.92 for the three items!
As alway I have some things in my cart from other stores... Lol. I think Asos will be my next purchase...

About a week ago I received an email from iron fist customer service with a code to get an additional 60% off. I just couldn't pass it up.
I got such an amazing deal!! I've been needing some new flats for work and I thought these would be that little extra something to complete any outfit. I really love the fact that Iron Fist makes the flat, heel, and wedge version in all I their shoes! Since my job requires me to stand for long periods of time, heels and wedges are out of the question. These flats will allow me to keep it professional and still cute!
I think the discount code no longer works but they do still have an amazing clearance section, so check them out at ironfistclothing.com!

I get the most amazing deals sometimes! I caught a great sale at Wet Seal and HAD to purchase.
I picked up me four pairs of shoes that included a pair of high top sneakers! I also picked up my mom a pair of canvas flats for only $6.
The coupon code I had tool $10 off of a $40+ purchase so I threw in the cami. It's such a nice color!
My subtotal was $42.54. With 25% off and the discount, I got $20 off bringing my sub total to $22.54. With free shipping and tax of $1.52, I spent a whopping $24.06! A major score!!

I received an email from Torrid that stated you get free shipping on a $25+ purchase so I decided to take a look. On instagram I've seen a picture of a pair of gorgeous shoes floating around but I never bothered to find out where they were sold. Needless to say I found them!!!

I don't normally post H&M hauls because I don't really shop there. The one near me doesn't sell plus size so I don't make many purchases.
With that said, I couldn't pass up a couple of shirts! I was surprised they fit because they are from the divided red line which is cut smaller for teens.
Both shirts were $14.95. My Mickey tank and my Notorious BIG tank will be hot for the summer.
I was thinking of posting outfit of the day pictures. Would anyone like to see those?

Is it just me or is old navy downsizing on the amount of bigger sizes it carries in store. I went into my local store and could not find anything above a 16 and even those were far and few in between!
I checked online and managed to see an ample amount of clothing but I hate paying shipping for only a couple of items. Especially when I think if they would only carry it in stores then I wouldn't have to worry about shipping cost. I'm just not a fan of free shipping at a certain amount when no stores near me carry a size 18 or 20 at all! And that includes stores up to 2 hours away! That's ridiculous!
Although a lot has changed at old navy (most for the worse in my opinion) I did purchase two pairs of shorts (online in a size 30 from the straight sizes) during their 50% off shorts sale. I wish I could've purchased more but being since I have not ordered or purchased in so long, I'm not sure of my size.
I decided on a couple of twill shorts both of which have wonderful prints!
To make this deal even better, I used two giftcards I had which took off $25. I also had a discount code that took off 15%. With the expensive shipping of $7 and tax of $1.91, I only spent $5.18 out of pocket.
Despite this great deal, if I had been able to find my size in store, I would've saved even more!

So as my loyal readers may know, wetseal has a junior plus line. I actually think the sizes are much more true to size and they go up to a 24 plus size, while Forever 21 stops at a 20.
I haven't been shopping at wetseal too often lately because I strongly believe their clothing is overpriced. Many of the items I can get from local stores like Dots or Rainbow for much cheaper and I can try their clothing instead of having to order online.
Anywho, wetseal had an amazing deal that I just could not pass up! I've been eyeing a pair of denim shorts with stars on them for quite some time now. They were on special for $15! I also picked up a denim shirt because they are so hard to find in my size and two pairs of canvas sneakers. In all I only spent $22!
I used ebates so I will be getting 2.5% back and I was able to get $20 and free shipping. How could I say no?!?

I'm a sucker for all things coconut scented! While I was browsing the many isles of Walmart, I came across these little babies and decided to give them a try.
Because they were less than $1, I thought I'd try them out. For starters the pads are very thin...
While using them I felt like they would rip. kind if like a wet napkin. I'm not sure if they are meant to be doubled or if they stick together but it would seem that in order to fit 32 pads into this container, they would be singles. With that being said I used two on each hand. Although I liked the scent, they just didn't work to remove my nail polish effectively. I had to add a little regular polish remover to the pads and they worked like a charm. The regular liquid remover did not seem to interfere with the coconut smell. I did feel like there was a slight residue left on my fingers after use.
All in all its just a waste of money regardless of how much, or in this case little, they cost. The smell is okay. Non of that acetone smelling stuff like usual. If you plan on using the pads with your regular remover just for the scent then by all means have ago at them!!
Slightly stained from the nail polish I used (saved by the blue by wet n wild), but the combination of liquid remover and pads took the polish right off.

I've been feeling a little under the weather lately. I think it's a combination of work and allergies...To take a load off I decided to treat myself to a little home relaxation.
I found some bath and body works candles that I completely forgot I had! I found minis of both "coconut leaves" and "pink sangria". They both smell so wonderful! Coconut leaves smells just like the name. It reminds me of a breeze blowing the scent of coconuts my way. Just a nice wash of coconut without being overbearing. Pink sangria is a fruity scent. It reminds me of a tropical scent you would breathe in while relaxing on an exotic beach!
I decided to light up pink sangria! I swear it was like aroma therapy. Although I still feel under the weather, I feel more relaxed!!
What do you do to relax when you're feeling a little blue?
