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.

I Prefer to Shop Online Sometimes

Admittedly, I prefer shopping online sometimes than going to the mall especially if shopping for my family back home. Although we tend to pay for the shipping and we cannot physically touch the items online yet I find it easy to find the things I really want to buy. Items are laid out neatly in front of me with just a click of a mouse.

We are only less than ten minutes away from the mall but going there is sometimes a bit tiring plus the fact that, the items you see online might not be available in-store or they don’t have the same promotions offered online. Aeropostale is the brand of clothing I buy for my brothers, they are comfortable, nice colors/prints and true-to-size. One instance, I browsed for men’s clothing online first before heading out to the mall, unfortunately, almost all of the nice items were gone at the mall so I went back home and shopped online for the things that were cheaply priced.

I didn’t mind paying for the shipping because I loved what I bought when the items arrived to our front door. I’d rather pay an extra five bucks for my items rather than forcing myself to shop the ones that are leftovers by other customers in-store. I would be very disappointed if I did.

I paid less than $30 for all the items photographed below, that’s including shipping and tax. Men’s shirts are V-neck style in stripes which were not available in-store.

Designer Sweaters for Less than $10

I should not underestimate the kind and quality of clothing that thrift stores are selling because it has proven (based on my shopping experiences) many times that they are the best places to shop for designer clothing at a fraction of a price. I feel in cloud 9 when I scored really great deals on my new Fall/Winter outfits for this year. I went to McCart Family Thrift Center not knowing what I could dig in their racks, with an open mind, I started going through each hanged clothes from babies, men’s and women’s of my size, then I went to their housewares and shoes.

I got several items in my cart and paid a total of a little over $60 for 14 items. Take note, what I bought aren’t just your usual brand of clothing that everybody can afford. I found me a Banana Republic sweater top, Calvin Klein, Guess jacket, Gap very soft long sleeves top, a pair of new Skechers shoes for only $12.95. Now if that doesn’t sound SWEET to you, I don’t know how you call that. Photos below are some of my haul at the thrift store last Saturday.

Look at photos below and tell me if they aren’t pretty, truly I feel lucky to have found such items that didn’t break my budget. I should have known that I can also wear designer clothing without spending so much money on them.

How about you ladies, do you also shop at consignment and thrift stores? Tell me what sort of stuff did you find there if you have shopped there before?

… this lovely open sweater here cost me only $4.94 and it still had a tag on it when I bought it. Take note, it is made in Italy not from China. It is really pretty in actual in grape color.

I didn’t really think that I could buy me this Calvin Klein new with tag sweater in beet red for $4.74 and Guess jacket for $3.33, although the jacket didn’t have a tag and may be a slightly used item, yet it still look like new. It’s a kid’s size and large but it fits me so I’m wearing it with pleasure.

You Can Be Clothed and Still be Sexy

A woman dresses to impress and express herself. How she dress up depends on her mood and her personality. A lot of women would express their sexiness by wearing tight and short clothing, others can be too revealing and almost wear nothing to attract attention. A few, dress just right and majority of them dress modestly.

There is one woman that I so admire. I have not met her in person yet I look up to her when it comes to fashion because I find her very sexy. You see her photos below that I snagged from Facebook, they are my favorite shots of her with her gorgeous maxis. I just can’t help but admire her sense of fashion, the styles, colors of her dresses and the overall look of this woman.

To me, a woman can be clothed and still looks sexy. I don’t need to see a lot of skin in order for me to tell she’s sexy. Manilyn, for one. She doesn’t reveal too much of her skin, her clavicles show, long skinny arms are exposed yet she still look decent, respectable, simple and gorgeous. Not to mention she wears her natural looks which makes her more beautiful. She is a modern woman yet she retains her conservative and innocent look of herself.

Agree or disagree but that’s how I see her.

…. photos not mine, I don’t own them. These are all Manie’s property. I hope she won’t kill me to find her photos on her lol.
