Selling Some of My Old Clothes

Hey everyone,

I’ve lost some weight recently (I’ll post about it soon!) and some of my clothes don’t fit me anymore. Since I REALLY need new clothes because my clothes are all big now, I’m selling some shirts. I’ll be adding more and more to it every so often. But I have like no money to buy clothes, so this is my only hope, haha.

If you guys want me to send you pictures of me wearing some of the pieces, just message me and I’ll be glad to! Please, seriously check them out. I really am dying here on money, lol.

Thanks and check it out!

OOTD: :)

So here are picture from my friend’s birthday party two weeks ago. I got this shirt at Forever 21, it’s called the Sheer Button Up Top. Online, they only have it in black currently but let me tell you, it’s ADORABLE in the white. Like seriously, I loved this outfit. I got so many compliments from my friends. I love the way it flares out at the side (you can see it in the first and last picture).

My one complaint is the way it gets longer at the back. I mean, this is more of a personal problem. I only had one cami and it was a lot longer than the front of the shirt. It’s hard to explain, but I folded my cami so it was shorter. It’s just that when I wear the cami at it’s regular length, it was longer than the shirt in the front. I really can’t explain this, lol. So my one piece of advice would be to make sure you have a shorter cami to wear under it because it’s see through, obviously.

I wore this shirt with a CC cami underneath, then I wore dangly earrings (they broke, so I don’t have a picture of them), an Anne Klein watch (the one I wanted for xmas!), and the necklace was from Urban Outfitters. I paired it with guess what, my black Bandolino boots. A better idea would have been to wear my brown boots, but they have heels on them and since I walked to my friend’s house, I didn’t want to wear heels lol. I also wore a brown headband with it. Oh! And CC jeans.

I really like this shirt. I wore it two nights ago too when I went to the city. It’s more of the kind of shirt you wear going out. It’s a cute shirt, but seems a little dressed up in my opinion for class or something. I also think it needs to be accessorized in order for it to work really well. I also unbuttoned my first two buttons so that the cami showed over the top. When it’s buttoned all the way, it’s kind of blah in my opinion.

Yay! Comments? xoxo

SALE ALERT/Torrid Look Book Review

Yay! My favorite thing to post EVER are about sales; so check out this cray cray sale at TORRID!

Torrid rarely has “good” sales. It’s like 5 dollars off a pair of jeans or something stupid. But this, for once, is actually really good (considering their stinginess). They are offering buy 1, get 1 50% off on everything. I think that’s really really good for them. Also, they added an extra 50% discount to their clearance. They are also continuing their old sale from the New Year, which included deals such as $20 off boots, $9.99 twist tees, $29.99 denim, etc. etc. But beware, it’s not as good as it seems.. it’s select pieces and by now, most of the clothes are sold out. But still, shop your butt off at Torrid. If I had the money, I definitely would. They added some really hot new arrivals that I’m really loving, so make sure you buy me some clothes (size 1, please, thanks xoxo). 😉

On another note, I really like the Torrid’s new look book, Sweet Escape. I love the colors. I remember when I first start out buying clothes from Torrid, EVERYTHING I owned was black. Even when they tried to create pieces with colors and stuff; I just never liked the outfits that much. But this year, they are seriously making a change. I’m so excited! Here are some of my favorite pieces.

From right to left.
Coral Pleated Double Layered Tank Top  – I never really liked this shirt when it is showed on the model by itself. However, I’ve seen other people wearing it (on some other blog) and on this model and gosh, I love it! I saw the shirt in the store and it doesn’t look like this at all, it looks as if the first layer overlaps and I feel like that makes the model look frumpy. But here, it doesn’t. I really want to check it out myself! B+ (only because I’m not fully sure of how it would look on me)

Coral White Navy Color Block Tube Dress – I really like this picture on the model in the look book. But when scrolling through the clothes in the beginning, this dress didn’t look half as nice. The colors are so much bland in the picture online and I know there are some lighting adjustments and effects on these pics, but seriously. It looks ADORABLE on the model! However, I do feel that the belt really adds a nice touch to the outfit. A-

Blue And Pink Color Block Pocket Tank Top – I’m happy to say I bought this top already! Last time I was at Torrid, I grabbed this shirt. It is really cute. It’s simple, but the hot pink pocket on the front really adds a nice touch. I know you can’t see the back from the picture, but it also has a really cute back to it too where the pink is shown again. I can’t really explain it, go to the picture though! But the colors are a lore bright in real life, so I definitely think you should all buy it! I love this shirt. My only complaint is that I’m in between sizes right now and got the shirt in a 1, but it’s kind of small. Rawr. It’s just an incentive to lose weight. So, I’ll give it an A-

Overall, I really like this look book. I love the colors they use and the model looks great! I seriously love how they are really going out there and trying to make clothes that look like what everyone else would be wearing. I feel like I could walk into any skinny store and buy these clothes. It’s so nice to know that although we’re purchasing plus size clothes, the clothes don’t necessarily look like they’re made for “bigger” people. Perff! xoxoxoxo

City Chic Purchase Review

Okay, so I went on a shopping craze on Cyber Monday, buying 200 dollars worth of City Chic items. Because of their sale, I was able to purchase 11 items. HOW CRAZY? City Chic’s prices are normally pretty expensive (at least for a college student), so I was able to buy 6 shirts, 2 camis, 1 jacket, 1 pair of jeans, and a pair of leggings. Come on, that’s crazy. That’s like buying from Forever 21, except you’re getting free shipping AND better quality clothes.

I didn’t know if I really have lost that much weight in the past week, but all of my clothes were SO BIG on me. I didn’t get it. I’m normally a size small at City Chic and fit into a size 18 pants. And normally, my City Chic shirts are on the smaller size. Like they fit well, but they’re kind of tight and I always wear it first in my dorm to stretch it out a little before actually going out in the outfit.

Here are some of the shirts I bought:

  • Glitter Chiffon Top:  It was simply too big for me. Normally, I’d get over bigger clothes and keep them just incase. However because of the cut, it made me look frumpy. I’m also not really a fan of flutter sleeves. I like my shoulders covered. The design was weird, but unique and cute.
  • Suedette Frill Top: Again, too big. The straps weren’t adjustable, so my bra was constantly showing. It felt amazing though! The first thing I did when I pulled it out of the bag was touch it for like 5 minutes, haha. It was just really baggy.
  • Peacock Feather Top: I wanted this shirt so I could wear it with all my new feather earrings I just bought. I thought it would be the ultimate artsy outfit. But again, it was way too big. It was baggy around my stomach and was really long on me. The design was cool though and the peacock detail really sticks out!
  • Puff Elbow Sleeve Top: Literally, my favorite shirt ever. I bought 3 of these shirts. One in black, one in the gray heart design, and another in the bow print. They all look amazing! I am keeping the black and gray one and am returning the bow print. The bow print had a little too much going on for me. But I really want the white polka dot shirt! 🙂
  • Pleather Biker Jacket: I don’t know what CC has against me and their jackets, but none of them ever fit. I first ordered a leather jacket in a small and it didn’t work, at all. Like I had trouble putting my arm in it and gave up after 5 minutes. So then when I bought this leather jacket, I made sure to get a medium and STILL, it doesn’t fit. Like it was nowhere near close even zipping. I don’t know, I’ve given up on CC jackets. Like do I really have to order 2 sizes up for a jacket? I was only wearing a cami too when I tried on the jacket.
  • I also bought a pair of leggings and they fit fine. Wish they were a little thicker, but they were on sale for 6 dollars so I shouldn’t complain. The jeans I bought were amazing. I ADORE CC denim. Wish i could buy their whole store’s denim.

To be honest, I’ve really never had a problem with CC purchases. Everything’s always fit and I’ve never really had to do returns. But I had to return 5 items today. I don’t think it was CC’s stylist’s faults, the cut and everything works well on the model. I just don’t understand why it didn’t fit me. Let’s just say that I went down a size 😉

Anywho, comments? xoxo

Christmas Wish List 2k11

Trying to decide what I want for Christmas this year is extremely tough. There’s a certain amount of money my mom spends each year, so I don’t want to get my hopes up by asking for too much, but I still want a lot of things, lol.

My list is kind of pathetic, but that’s all I can think of right now. It’s sad because we all know the day after Christmas, I’ll come up with about thirty necessities I need and won’t be able to get them because my mom just spent mad paper on my Christmas gifts. Lol.

BTW IF YOU WANT MY ANNE KLEIN WATCH, DON’T BUY IT FROM EBAY. THAT’S MY WATCH. AND IF YOU’RE GOING TO BUY THE SPORTO BOOTS, DON’T BUY THEM IN A BLACK 9.5, THAT’S MY FUTURE PURCHASE ALSO. Thanks 😉

What’s on your Christmas list? Comment, I’m interested. I need more ideas too for my list! Happy Holidays! xoxo
