Doing the best she can to raise happy, healthy children

Monthly Archives: March 2017

It’s been a couple of months since I’ve had a fix. I was pretty excited to find it sitting on my doorstep yesterday. I always rush in and open it. Its like Christmas anytime during the year.

We are travelling next month for a combined my graduation and mini family vacation. This time I specifically asked for a dress for graduation and something to wear for possible meet-ups with other students. My personal shopper’s name is Jin and she’s amazing. She reads my comments and looks through my Pinterest page. I love that what i pin and comment on is actually used for what she sends me.

I didn’t keep everything this time. Honestly, it wasn’t because I didn’t care for the items. It was rather more because of the fit. Dresses are difficult for me to find that fit me well. I’m a pear. And so finding dresses that fit my top and then doesn’t always fit the bottom. And I hate when the dress isn’t long enough that when I sit it slips up so I’m not sitting on the dress.

With out further delay, here is what i received:

20170317_164317This is the 41 Hawthorne Carla Crochet Detail Blouse. I love this blouse. I feel like I can pair it with either dress pants and go to work or slip on some jeans and head out for dinner The downfall to this top was it was a little lower cut for me. I may need to put a tank on underneath. The price for this piece is $58.

20170317_164403This second piece is the RD Style Union Open Drape Cardigan. Its a nice basic black cardigan. I know I’ll be able to use it with several of my current clothes. I love that. The prices for this one was $58. So, a little pricey for what it is.

20170317_164515I could hardly hold my excitement when I saw these jeans. I don’t have anything in this style and I love the holes. It is the Mavi Ruxin Distressed Boyfriend Jeans and was priced at $98. Sadly these jeans were entirely too small. But, I now Know that I need a pair this style.

20170317_164543Oh my! Beautiful dress! I loved the print and rich colors of this dress. I was excited to maybe wear this to graduation. This dress is the Maggy Landon Henrietta Dress and is priced at $118. Boy did I want that dress. Unfortunately it was too tight when I tried it on. it also inched up when I sat. As I mentioned above, that is not something I like.

20170317_164712The last item was a Navy dress with a white rope design. It is a wrap dress and was very pretty. It is very pretty and so comfortable to wear. This would be great for casual evening out. I felt it was maybe a little big maybe especially in the chest. I was also a bit concerned, with the material, it may stretch out. This dress is by Sade New  York and called Martey Knit wrap Dress. It was priced at $78.

The total was $410, minus $102.50 if I bought all the pieces. That minus the pre-paid styling fee, my total for all 5 pieces would be 287.50.

As you can see, I got some really great pieces. unfortunately, a couple didn’t fit well. Knowing I wasn’t buying all 5 pieces, I opted to only get two that I knew I would love and use a lot. I ended up keeping the 41 Hawthorne shirt and the black cardigan. I’m looking forward to adding this into my wardrobe.
