March'11 - Week 4

I bought a quilted handbag !!!

There's a story behind it! LOL
A couple of weeks ago, hubby and I had dinner w/ my sister, her husband, and their friends. There was one woman carried a quilted handbag, I thought it looked familiar, it looked like the one I saw on ASOS site.
I wasn't into quilted bags before. Not my style. But then, I thought it actually looked pretty cute. So, I bought myself one with the ASOS 20% off code.

ASOS Quilted Lock Across Body Bag - $21.59 shipped

I like it! It has a twist-lock closure. It's sturdy/not flimsy. The man-made leather quality is pretty good. It's roomy and it has a zipper compartment in the inside. The chain strap is a bit heavy, it's a good thing, that means it's not made of cheap plastic. Good price too!

Today, at Costco, I was supposed to be only buying some food for dinner with the in-laws, but I also ended up buying a couple of tops for myself. Heheh..

When I was on my way to the cashiers, my eyes caught this white-gray striped knit cardigan. Other color is black-gray. Very comfy. I luv it! I wish I could buy both. LOL

DKNYC Open Cardigan - $19.99

Then, I stopped again when I saw a bunch of tummy toning camis. The cami has a hidden panel around the mid-section area. It smooths out unwanted fat bulges, so it makes your midsection look more toned and your hourglass-shape is more noticeable. I love it !!! I want to get moreeee !!!! I wish it's a bit cheaper though, like under $10.

There are 3 different types: ribbed cotton, tailored (smooth cotton), and lace-trimmed. I really want the lace-trimmed in black. Maybe next time, when I go to Costco again.

Tummy Toning Cami - $15.99

March'11 - Week 3

George - 7 -in-1 Convertible Dress - $20.97 shipped

I bought this dress from Walmart website. I always wanted a convertible dress! But most of them usually are expensive, a bit revealing, impossible to wear a regular bra under it. I hate wearing strapless.

I really like this summer dress! I like the criss-cross look on the bust part.
It's simple and not revealing. The material is decent, soft and not sheer at all.
It's true to size (women's). Thank goodness. I almost bought it in 2 sizes.

The clothing tag has description of how the dress can be worn 7 ways.
The styles are easy to figure out.
  • Stretch cotton
  • Convertible: can be worn 7 ways
  • 1:With scoop-neck in front, wrap ties in front and over opposite shoulders. Cross in back, bring to front and tie in a knot. Pull shoulders down to make sleeves.
  • 2: With v-neck in front, wrap ties across front and over opposite shoulders. Cross ties in back and bring over shoulders to create scarf.
  • 3: With scoop in front, wrap ties across back and over opposite shoulders. Cross in front, cross in back, and bring to front. Tie in a knot. Pull down at shoulders to create sleeves.
  • 4: Repeat number 3, but pull shoulders down to create off the shoulder look.
  • 5: With scoop in front, wrap ties across front and over opposite shoulders and twist straps. Cross straps in back, bring to front and tie in a knot.
  • 6: With scoop in front, wrap ties around back and cross over opposite shoulders to create a scarf.
  • 7: With v-neck in front, wrap ties around the back. Bring to front and tie in a knot.

    March'11 - Week 1

    One day, I found a $10 off of $25 JCP code on Slickdeals. I used it to get this coat and had it ship to the JCP dept store. Shipping is free if you ship the order to the store.

    The coat is very good quality, though it's only as thick as sweatshirt, so it's not winter-friendly, unless you wear a couple layers of clothing under it.

    I'm addicted to Nordstrom Rack online.

    Everyday, I find the time to check out the site to see if there's anything new on sale. They are always adding new stuff. They have limited stock and size. So if you find something good, you've to snatch it ASAP.

    One time, I saw this sweater on the site. I loved the color , good price, but it's not available in my size. Bummer. A couple of days later, it's available in my size and I snatched it right away. Then, it's out of stock again, so they only had 1 left. ;-)

    Color is as pictured. It's a nice, warm and soft open cardigan. True to size.
