I Love Cute Dresses

It pays to be a rewards member of Sears. I get to earn points and use points everytime I shop online or in-store. There are offers also that lets you put in 10000 points or $10 into your Shop Your Way members account which I used to buy these two cute little dresses some weeks ago. For a little over $8, I got to buy two dresses shown below and a pair of black wedge sandals. Aside from the points, as a member, all three items were two dollars less than what were listed on their site.

Great deals like these are hard to pass so I took advantage of them. The light colored dress on the left is a little loose though but I can definitely alter it a little bit to fit me. The black one I have already worn once and I loved how comfortable the dress is. The material is so soft ideal for warm days!

Shopping for Myself

I feel like I deserve to reward myself since I have been working so hard hauling some deals at different stores nearby. For weeks, all I have done was doing store hopping trying to stock up most of the stuff we need in the house. I feel exhausted and want to quit now since we got enough.

It is time to buy something for myself. It’s been quite a while now since I have not rewarded myself. These two below I purchased at Zulily are sure would make me feel beautiful, haha. The black and white maxi dress is only under $8 and the second photo which is you know look revealing maybe just under $6. Sweet deals, aren’t they? Not to mention they are free shipping. Zulily’s offer is I get free shipping on the second order if it is placed before midnight of the same day. So there I went, checked out and purchased these two aside from the other two items which are household items. Estimated shipping date will be on the 18th next month, way too long to wait but what else can I do?

purple sheer lace floral chemise – I chose this because summer is almost here and this I think would be comfortable during the warm nights for three months.

Sharper Uniforms for a Variety of Occupations

No matter what type of organization an owner is running, he may want his staff members to wear great-looking uniforms. Uniforms make it easy for customers to identify staff workers and also provide a consistent, professional appearance for people who work at the organization. A company such as Averill’s Sharper Uniforms provides outfits suitable for a broad range of occupational positions. Wait staff, hotel front desk personnel, store clerks, resort and country club workers, bartenders, security staff, delivery truck drivers and fitness center workers are examples of occupations that need uniforms.

Polo shirts, long-sleeved shirts and blouses, camp shirts, sweaters, vests and aprons are some products available from a uniforms provider. The company also can provide hats, scarves and neckties. The items can be manufactured in the organization’s color preferences and can feature logos and other graphics.

Some organizations want their employees to wear bright colors that make them stand out in a crowd so customers can easily find them. Another common choice is for the uniforms to be understated and matching in both colors and style. Bartenders and wait staff might all wear a tan polo shirt and black casual pants, for example. Retail stores and other operations typically like their employees to wear uniforms in colors that match the corporate colors.

Allied Shirt’s made in the USA Shirt

I thank Allied Shirts for the opportunity of me reviewing one of their products. I recently received this cool custom shirt in the mail from them. It is a mauve color with my blog name printed on it above the graphic that I personally chose from their website. I love the outcome of the printing for it is of high quality. The shirt itself is made in the USA which is very unusual for most of the clothing that can be bought in the US nowadays are made in China but Allied Shirt patronizes American made shirts.

I ordered a small size but guess, it is a little loose on me. I wished that they had an XS size for a proper fitting. Anyway, I am proud to have this shirt now to wear running errands outside at the same time advertising my blog to the public.

If you want to find a great deal on custom shirt printing, I would recommend Allied Shirts. You can choose as low as $2.95/shirt for basic tees. You can also browse their templates to be printed on your shirt. Templates under school, events and parties, college, military, religious, business and many others categories. Low price guarantee! Also, get 30% off promo and free shipping from them.

Photo below is the actual design I made online.

And here’s the photo of me wearing the shirt. It’s a little too big for me but I am happy with it.

Disclaimer: I did not receive any monetary compensation from the company, instead they sent me free customized shirt and free shipping in exchange of my honest review/opinion about the product.

Slimming Top

I know a few fashion bloggers that receive their clothing, accessories, handbags and other stuff free of cost by pitching companies and blog about them. While, I don’t do that often, I actually don’t mind paying for something that I can afford that I also like a lot.

One example is this striped slimming top that only cost me under $9 shipped. I love how it looks and its style. Although I don’t know yet if the material is good but I bought it from the clothing store that I bought several items from before so I trust this won’t disappoint me, material-wise.

Online shopping once in a while doesn’t hurt especially if you get the items for less than ten bucks plus they’re shipped free. I love it when I score great deals on clothing as well, who doesn’t want to save, you know?

Patriotic Women’s Sweater

I purchased this USA flag sweater online two weeks ago. It is my first clothing that has an American flag in it. Surely I am going to wear it when I feel most patriotic in a certain days. I love it and it’s warm perfect for mid Fall or Winter.

When I looked at the tag sewn on the neck of this sweater, I was actually surprised to see that familiar clothing name that is sold at Macy’s. The website I bought it from isn’t a big online store nor popular but look, they carry the same clothing line as Macy’s. And you Macy’s clothing are expensive unless they are marked down or in clearance.

I should have not doubted the quality of merchandise of the online store because… they are not cheap after all although their prices are way lower than in department stores.

For just less than $10 including shipping for a gorgeous sweater like this, I think I scored a good deal on this one.

I Love My New Floral Print Parka

When I saw this floral print parka online, I knew I was going to love it. Before I purchased it from Aeropostale, I read the reviews from customers who bought and tried it on before and yes, they are all correct with the description of this lovely coat.

When I received this in the mail, I couldn’t be any happier for it is what I expected, very lightweight and can truly keep me warm during cold bitter winter days. I love that it has a string around its waist so it gives my body a bit of a shape when I put it on. Oh not also forgetting to mention that it is not bulky. I only bought it for $9.09 after being on clearance and an additional 30% off. For me, nothing beats the price. Originally $129 and it came down to under $10, how awesome is that?

This is the lightest coat I ever own. The ones I bought years back are very heavy and bulky. I feel like a robot when I put them on but I was a newbie back then, I didn’t really know what to buy as long as it gives me warm in cold days and I like the style…. but now I am smarter which sort of coat or jacket to buy for myself.

Victoria’s Secret Promo Buy 2 Bras and get a Free Tote a $78 Value

I went to shop at the V.S store yesterday in the mall and did not plan spending more than $15 but I ended up buying two Pink bras. The temptation was hard to resist. I had a $10 bra coupon with me plus they offer a promo when you buy two any bras, you’ll get a free tote… that is without a minimum purchase.

I paid a bit over $50 for two bras, after using my coupon and got my silver bottom Victoria’s Secret tote and a SECRET REWARD card. I am okay if I just have $10 in my reward card and hopefully reduced that amount spent to $40. Promos like that doesn’t always come because they usually require customers to shop at least $65 or higher in order to qualify for a free tote.

I am happy with the tote because it looks prettier from the outside and is spacious inside. Although there is no velcro or magnetic closure, it is good enough to carry all essentials when traveling. This lovely tote will go to my mother and hope she likes it as I do.

Whenever I go shop for under garments or lingerie, I often thought of my sister, so the pink lacey bra will go to her. It is cute and is perfect for her age. I love her to death that is why I don’t hesitate buying her stuff for I know that makes her happy, besides, she is a person that knows how to appreciate the things that are given to her.

Sales Flooding Everywhere

It is the time of the year when people go broke even if they have a stable job because of the sales flooding everywhere, good thing there is a credit card that is ready to use anytime to the rescue, you stay at home and you will still have access to sales online. If you go to the mall, you will see big RED signs from each brand/boutique door trying to catch a customer’s attention to go inside their shop.

Either you know how to drive or not. There is truly no escape from shopping, I think!

For some, it is the perfect time to be shopping for summer outfits. Almost all stores are getting rid of their out-of-season clothing that they did not sell from last season so they are having really marked down items like the one pictured below. I took it at body central today where I spent most of my time after visiting Gymboree.

Body Central’s promo in-store is different from their website, right now they are having a buy 2 get 1 free whereas in-store it’s only buy 1 get 1 free. The only thing I am not willing to do is I get to pay for the shipping fee buying clothes online that is why going to the mall instead is practical. Plus, princes online and in-store aren’t the same.

When you go to the mall this weekend, rest assured and be prepared to spend some money due to many temptations you cannot say no. I got out of Body Central store today only spent $10+, I bought me a stylish printed fringed and striped maxi skirt (free, online price is $12.29) with double slits.

…. one of the skirts I bought is this striped maxi skirt with double slits. Yes, I am 30 years old but it doesn’t mean I don’t wear this kind of clothing intended for younger people, I still feel young at heart, you know?

Navy Flight Jackets at LandingZone.com

There’s something classic and very masculine about a man wearing a leather flight jacket. Maybe it’s the Top Gun movies, or maybe it’s something more ingrained into our culture, but a nice quality flight jacket can turn an appearance from casual to bold in a flash.

The leather is the key factor in the flight jacket’s appeal, I think. The lining is generally comfortable, and the pockets are always handy to have, but the leather exterior is what makes this kind of jacket my favorite. Some of the main advantages to this kind of full-grain leather are:
*Easy to clean
*Wind and water resistant
*Impact resistant
*Rough and tough for everyday life

These jackets require no babying. Conversely, they will take care of you quite well.

There are a few major popular styles of flight jackets, but my favorite would have to be from the navy division. With two front, buttoned pockets, interior pocket, shearling collar and ribbed cuffs, this jacket is extremely comfortable and utilitarian. The navy flight jackets at LandingZone.com are a great example of this kind of quality jacket, and the style runs true to the military heroes and the movies that portray them in our modern hearts.

No matter what kind of style you have today, wearing a leather jacket can give you that rough and tough style you need. These kinds of jackets are more than just apparel – they embody an attitude of man, class and style.
