Halter Dresses Are a Very Cute Choice

Halter dresses are a very cute choice, but they’re often considered seasonal. Very few people want to wear a halter dress in cold weather for obvious reasons. They’re stylish, but they don’t do much to keep you warm. However, if you have a halter dress in your wardrobe you’re sad to see left behind for cooler weather, don’t despair. Pulling off a halter dress in the winter is just a matter of careful accessorization. With proper outfit assembly, you can keep it working nearly year-round.

The first rule of seasonal dress is layering. Most dresses work just fine with an appropriate coat over them. This has the added benefit of being easily removable when you move indoors. This has the drawback of making it less-than-obvious that your dress is a halter dress, but often this is all it takes to let you survive the trip out.

Next up is scarves. For cooling days in autumn, sometimes all you need to accessorize a halter dress is a good scarf. Scarves aren’t as thorough at keeping you warm as jackets, but they do a lot to keep your neck and shoulders warm, which is where your dress fails in this regard. Finding a matching scarf is an excellent option.

Universally, tights allow dresses to work out-of-season much more easily. A good pair of tights is priceless. If you can find a set that keep you warm while still being stylish, you’re absolutely golden for future wardrobe enhancement.

These are just the basics, but with proper outfit assembly, there’s no such thing as clothes for summer only!

Nice Print Ribbed Tanks for Under $2

It doesn’t hurt to buy Walmart brand clothing, does it? Although Walmart normally sells their products for cheaper prices compared to other store, that doesn’t mean the quality is cheap or is not presentable. I love shopping at Walmart for my girls’ clothing sometimes, you know?

I found these nice printed ribbed tanks at Walmart on clearance last weekend and bought five of the tanks. For $1.50 each, who doesn’t want to buy that? I could wear these tanks for running errands outside the house or sending my kindergarten to school. They are pretty, aren’t they? Who can tell they are from Walmart?

… I bought 3 pieces of the camou print for me and my two girls. I love matching tops/dresses with them..

… prints for little girls but they fit on me and love the prints, so why not buy them? XL size for a kid is equivalent to Small size in junior. I felt lucky to have found these tanks for they were really cheap.

Chocolate and Black Chevron Maxi Dress

I so heart this dress below, photograph not mine. I saw this on an online boutique last night and I am drooling with this dress. I don’t have that many maxi dresses and buying another one in Chevron print wouldn’t be bad, the only thing that hinders me from buying this particular dress is the price. It costs $40 or in any other stores but I am not willing to pay that price knowing that it will come down eventually to under $10.

Call me frugal but there is nothing wrong being one, right? I can’t seem to get over with this dress, it has been on my mind all night long. All I could do for now is to stare at it and wait for the right time to shop for chevron prints. Hopefully, before summer ends, I can buy me one or two of these prints.

Shopping for Dresses is My Weakness

Dresses! Why are you so beautiful? Why are you so tempting to buy? How can I say no if seeing beautiful styles, prints and colors on one of the online stores are having all dresses for sale for $7.99 each? I found myself checked out three items in my cart just thirty minutes ago. I put them earlier but closed the window and was not going to buy them but then this little devil inside me pushed me hard to open the website again and buy them.

Blame me if I like dresses, I am a woman and dresses are my weakness not to mention, they are affordable. Dresses attached below were the items in my cart, waiting for their arrival next week and hopefully they will fit me good. I trust my selection and size, I have shopped from 10dollarmall before so I am good of the items I picked.

I love their prints and colors, as you may notice they all have some blue-ness in them, can you tell blue is my favorite color? They are MSRP for $64.99, $49.99 and $24.99 – sold on the mentioned site above for $9.99 and they’re on sale today until Sunday for $7.99 plus shipping. All three items totaled below $30. Amazing deal I got there, don’t you think? I am a happy shopper as usual!

My Aeropostale Haul

This post is long overdue. But anyway, I am one of those people who loves to shop smart and anticipating for deep discount sales either in-store or online. Aeropostale had their biggest Bulldog sale a few weeks ago. My tactic was, I checked their online prices for tees and then in the weekend I visited their store and see if they are the same.

Guess what? Their physical store at the mall was .99 more. It took me days before I could visit their store so there wasn’t much left when I did so when I went back home, I checked out the items that were already in the cart. I didn’t mind paying for $4 shipping because I got prettier items online than in the store, besides, it made me save a few cents purchasing online because their normal shipping is $7 but they had a shipping promo that day so I still believe I got a deal. And oh not forgetting, I am getting a few cents back by shopping online through ebates.

I bought 4 pieces of men’s tees for $5 each for my brothers in the Philippines despite the fact that they do not appreciate the things I give them, two pieces aero bikini for my little sister and a color block yoga capri for myself. I know shopping is nice but you have to be smart enough when and what kind of stuff you’re buying so there will be no shopping remorse afterwards.

Zaggora High Rise Hot Pants Capri I Own

I am one of those bloggers who was given a chance by this popular brand for a review. I am glad I own one Zaggora pants now to become my partner during my home work out. I have used them twice so far since its arrival and yes, I honestly love wearing them. They are stretchy, comfortable, they look nice, they feel good in my skin and most of all the company claims to help my body burn more calories by helping me to generate more body heat with their patent pending fabric.

Here is a little information about the company.

The Zaggora Hot line of clothing was tested by ETScience based at the University of Southern California in the US between September 2012 and January 2013 and at The University of Brighton in the UK between September 2011 and August 2012. The line, which is made with their patent pending Celu-Lite technology, was shown to:

• increase the metabolic rate during exercise by up to 18% vs. a standard garment when Zaggora clothing was worn for at least 30 minutes during exercise.

• be safe during high-intensity aerobic exercise since core body temperature did not exceed acceptable exercise-induced elevations

Photos above are of me wearing my neon yellow Zaggora high rise hot pants but I chose to fold it over in the hips and calves to add style and color block effect on the pants. Guess, I will be more motivated to lift weights now that I have this pair of pants and hope to burn calories in the next days.

Totsy’s Summer Dresses for Under $10

I don’t mind spending money on dresses that are really my type and I could wear over and over again. I just hope that when the items I purchased at Totsy’s today will be comfortable and will fit me good when they arrive. I have been looking for a halter type dress both online and in-stores but I couldn’t seem to find what I really wanted.

Totsy  sent me their blowout sale ad in my email and I took the time browsing for their dresses. How lucky I am for I found these dresses shown below. First and fourth photos are surplice halter dresses for $6 each original price was $32. The second photo is for Jadyn which cost me $5 more than my dresses. The third photo is an elastic waist tank dress for only $7, original price was $82.

No regret after spending $36 on clothing today for I really got a pretty good deal in all items I checked out at Totsys. With that price, I bought 6 dresses in total (2 items aren’t shown in photos). And oh take note, I didn’t pay for the shipping by the way. Right now, they offer free shipping promo for orders $35 and over. Isn’t that so sweet? I found the dresses I wanted plus I didn’t have to burn my gas going to the mall (I even doubt if I can find the same style and price there knowing that I am going to have my two girls with me, shopping these days isn’t easy with kids in tow).

No other clothing website can beat that, I believe, not even Body Central, Forever 21 or Alloy. I am a happy shopper here today!
