Spring Dresses 2015

Wearing a dress is what I am most comfortable with during this kind of season. I just can’t think of a perfect outfit than a nice, floral printed dress. I have two girls so I am more than proud to say that they are my living doll, who I can dress up whatever I like.

Below is of me and the girls with our beautiful dresses. This was taken at Baptist church nearby during egg hunting on Saturday. It was a bit cooler that day so I decided to put on cute little cardigans to my girls that coordinated with their dresses.

Mind you, I bought their dresses last year when stores had their end of season sale while mine, I have had it for maybe three years now but rarely wear it. One of the many things I like about dresses is that, I don’t have to spend so much time trying to figure out what sort of bottoms and tops to give to my girls in order to match because I am not good at that. With a one piece of cloth, they can easily put it on and I don’t worry about a mismatched outfit.

Buy 1 Get 2 Free Aeropostale Socks

I just know when I see pretty good deals, if I miss to buy that item in my first visit, I just couldn’t sleep until I buy one for me. One example are these Aeropostale ankle socks I bought last week. I didn’t buy them when I first saw them as I had other items in mind why I visited their store at the mall. When I went home that day, I couldn’t stop thinking about the socks.

Socks are a must-have for me in winter. Besides, I have a 7-year old girl that constantly needs socks for school. So I went back to the mall and made sure I got me 9 pairs of socks with nice prints in them. Aeropostale sale for socks was buy one get two free! Each pack contains three pairs for $10.50. I paid a little over $11 for 9 pairs of socks, yeah!

Each pair is just $1.30 after tax, a few cents more than what is individually sold at Walmart. Aero for me is the winner quality-wise. Walmart’s socks are stringy inside which could trap your little toes when you put them on in a hurry! Hurry to your nearest Aeropostale store and see if you can still score this awesome sock deal!

Over $50 Savings from Aeropostale

I am so crazy with good deals! If I find one and I know it’s a good one, better be fast and grab it before it’s gone. Two days ago Filipinas had frenzy shopping on PS Aeropostale website due to free $10 plus free shipping deal. I was one of the lucky ones who got to use four codes and made four transactions that only cost me $1.34 for I exceeded on the minimum amount that I should order, that’s fine! Paying that very little amount for five items is way better than paying $50 or more out of pocket if I didn’t use codes for my items.

You see, I see it as a blessing in a form of clothing. They are almost free if I say it. These warm fleece pants are comfortable and feel good to the skin. Some people who have money are willing to pay that amount but I am not, even though they were on sale but they would still be too much for our pocket. Thank God for the opportunities wherein I can still shop for clothes we need but pay too little for them.

Aeropostale has done a good job shipping these items, they came very fast and also they included $30 worth of coupons for next shopping. I love it!

Shopping at Rue21 Under $8

For some Rue21 clothing store isn’t popular for them but it has become one of my shopping destinations when I go to the mall. When they say 50% off additional clearance items, it means deep discounts on their clothing. Unlike Wetseal or Forever21, I noticed that even though they say BOGO clearance items, you’d still pay at least $7 or $10 a piece which for me is deceiving.

Here is an example of what “deal” is. For a chevron print dress, originally priced at $17.97, I got it for $5, the second item is a denim vest with hood for $2. Original price was $21.97. I am glad I’ve waited purchasing a denim vest for I found such a deal for it. Total cost for two items is $7.58. I saved a whooping of $32.94 in Tuesday’s shopping trip.

I have been wanting to buy a vest, I looked elsewhere, even online stores but I just couldn’t spend so much money on a very small piece of clothing. Thank goodness Rue21 has it for a lot less! Happy shopper I am as always.

Labor Day Shopping

The best destination when it comes to holidays like Labor Day is the mall! I am talking as if I have unlimited budget, lol. Well, if you are a thrift shopper, you will go wander around the mall and take your time to dig for really deep discounts on whatever it is you are thinking of buying.

Here’s my deals today. First stop was CVS pharmacy and did not expect to find these white Gildan men’s shirt in their clearance rack, 90% off the original price which was 3/$12. Final price, it costs me 40 cents each. Only 5 pieces left so I bought them all for my balik-bayan box to send to the Philippines. If my brothers don’t want them, plenty of my cousins and uncles who will want them.

Another purchase that I think I got me a discount are these two PINK bralettes. I am in need of them to make me feel comfortable for my walking exercise. They would make a great cover up of my flesh under a roomy tank for walking or working out at the gym in the future. Full-priced $19.95 each and I made it down to $10.77 each including tax due to store coupons that I received when Victoria’s Secret sent me catalogs in the mail. Not only that, I also snagged me two FREE undies by using free underwear coupons! How sweet is that?

While a lot of customers are partying on 7/$26.50 panties, I don’t. Why buy if I could have free panties?
What about you folks? What did you do on Labor Day? Did you find great deals too? Don’t be shy to share them in my comment section.

Hollister Clearance Buy One Get One Free

One of my favorite shops to buy my clothing is Hollister. The material they used are soft and feels good on the skin plus, they have a wide array of selection when it comes to coats, jeans, flip flops, swim, sweaters, long sleeves and summer outfit. Aside from that, when they say “sale” it means deep discounts on their merchandise.

For instance, I scored these long sleeves stripes perfect for Fall for just $5.49 a piece and a $10 Hollister bra. You don’t normally spend a little over $20 for these clothing when you buy them in full price. The promo buy one get one free on clearance should still ongoing, so if you have a chance, head on to the closest Hollister store near you and shop for Summer/Fall outfits while supplies last.

Light Long Sleeves for Under $5

When one is in a tight budget, he or she would do anything to make ends meet. With that said, you don’t need to sacrifice buying some clothing for yourself for there are plenty of ways to save at the same time buying the things you need.

Another great find I found at a thrift store are these light long sleeves for under $5. These aren’t just mall clothing, these are GAP, Aeropostale and Mossimo. Two of which only priced $3.33 and the GAP is $4.94. Mind you, these were new with original tags still on when I found them. Luckily, two of which are my size, they are perfect for Fall.

Another awesome find is this GUESS lunch box. Who would have thought that I could only buy it for only $1.99? I may not need it right now but I know someday, I will. This can be used to ball game events where transparent bags are needed or for putting lunch boxes in it to work.

So this is my recent haul I made. What’s yours? Do you shop at Goodwill or thrift store too? I do! I should not be embarrassed admitting it for these stores aren’t the “wet market” type. Their clothes are neatly hanged in a clean environment. People I’ve seen who shop at these stores are office workers, elderly, myself and many others that you wouldn’t think you’ll find them digging in thrift stores.

It is just a sense of practicality why a lot of people would rather go there instead of spending so much money on things that they know they can buy for a lot less than in the mall or elsewhere.

Great Deal on Girls Adidas Yoga Pants

It pays to be petite and skinny for if you find a deal on small children’s clothing, you’d be able to snag a pair or two yoga pants for only $4.97 each pair. I found this deal at Costco two weeks ago. I did not expect to score these deals, really plus the fact that it’s Adidas which normally sold for over $30, nothing is sweeter than that.

I bought three pairs, one for me size medium which fits me perfectly. One for my little sister, a large size and a black color, small size for my firstborn. I don’t see yoga pants sold at this price so often and wished I bought the purple color so I can have two pairs.

I always love it when I find low prices on clothing or everyday household items. Because it enable us to save some money. Why would spend full price on something when you know you could pay less for it, right? Practicality is what I am up to for I was born from a poor penis!

Saturday Mall Shopping – Chevron Print Kind of Day

I left in the house early this morning for I was concerned that it will be too crowded at one store which happens to have a day sale for flip flops. As early as 9 a.m we were headed to our first stop, CVS to grab some things which is on the way to the mall. Second stop is at Old Navy, they are having an in-store special today only for solid flip flops cost $1/pair, normally sold for $3.50. I bought ten pairs, you might think it is too crazy to buy that many pairs. Mind you, most of these pairs will go to the Philippines for my family.

As expected, the crowd was massive, the checkout was a bit slow albeit there were four people working at the register. The line was too long that it almost wrapped around the store inside. Anyhow, I chose to go there so I was willing and patient enough to stand in line.

After Old Navy, we went back to the mall and shopped some more. Last destination was Rue21. There I hauled pretty nice prints clothing and paid 50% with the use of a store coupon sent to me by a friend. Total was $44 plus tax and was able to make it down to only $25.95. It was a Chevron print kind of day for me. Look at my haul below. First photo was the two flounce top maxi dresses I tried on, I was torn between those two prints, I was gonna buy both but realized I love Chevron more.

…. Another thing I bought for me are these cute Chevron print top and a white cropped bottom. Yes, I know I still got a few new clothing hanging in my closet with tags in them but I know these make me happy. Eventually I’ll be able to wear them, so no worries. I had a good time shopping today and saved at the same time.

Going out to breathe a fresh air without my little one is what I needed. I spent most of my days at home now that it’s getting very hot outside so I think I deserve the shopping spree I did today.

3 Tips For Punk Life

Since the whole point of punk is to buck authority and think for yourself, it can be difficult to know where to start when outfitting and accessorizing your new lifestyle. When no one will tell you anything, how do you know what to do? Consider this a secret guide to becoming more punk.

1: Get The Look

Most punk fashion revolves around tough, hard-edged things like combat boots and bondage straps on your pants. Red plaid is also a hot commodity; you’ll find it everywhere among the punk crowd. Check out thrift stores, vintage boutiques and other alternative retailers to start building a wardrobe with attitude.

2: Read The Literature

Clothes are only the window dressing of a true nonconformist lifestyle. To be punk, you have to think punk, so get comfortable with authors like Kathy Acker and Charles Bukowski. Their views on anarchy, commercialism and the world at large are sure to influence how you see things yourself.

3: Meet The People

The one bad thing about punk is that it can emotionally and politically isolate you from everyone you used to know. Look for like-minded individuals in your area who have an appreciation for free thinking. They’re the ones who will take you to bars, concerts and protests with other punks, and they’re the ones who will truly understand you when no one else does.

These are just three ways to embrace the punk lifestyle. Don’t worry, you don’t have to tell anyone that you got advice. It can be a secret between you and this website!
