May'11 - Week 2

A few weeks ago, emailed me a $50 off of $100 code. Yay! \(^o^)/
To get the code, sign up for their email updates and they will email you the code once in every 3-4 months.

With the code, I ordered 3 items, valued $161 total. After the 30-40% discount that the website was currently offering plus the $50/$100 code, my total came up to $59.35 shipped. But, I ended up returning 2 out of 3 of the items since they didn't look flattering on me.

The item that I'm keeping is a hoodie.

SUPERDRY Thumb-cuff Hoodie - $24.75 (Orig. $108. Sale $76)

I had been eyeing on this hoodie for a few months. I want it because it has thumb holes. The hood, I thought it had grey lining, but it actually has 2 real hoods. So neat. (^-^)

I made more purchases from ideeli website. That site sells things that I like lately. I wish the shipping fee was not $9.95 though.

PRESS Sleeveless Cowl Neck Top - $12 each (Orig. $35/each) + S/H

Unlike wifebeaters or tank tops, this kind of style of tops I can stay cool in the summer without have to reveal too much skin. My plan is to wear them to work, or when I see the in-laws.

COSTA BLANCA Maxi Skirt - $28 (Orig. $64) + S/H

My wish came true! \(^o^)/

In the previous blog entry, I posted a maxi skirt I'd previously purchased from ideeli. I also wished I had bought the navy one too. Well, ideeli had an "encore" sale of the maxi skirts last week, including the one I wanted.

I wish my waist was as tiny as the model's... (T_T) LOL

I spent my last $10 VS Secret Reward gift card and a $10 VS B-day code on a couple of tees. Pretty nice tees, as modeled. The sleeves hide fat arms really well. LOL (^_^)

VICTORIA'S SECRET Elbow-Sleeve Scoopneck Tee
$10.99 shipped (Orig. $25 for 2)

I purchased this dress from Kohl's website. It was sorta an impulse I used the 30% off and free shipping codes to buy this dress. It's cheap and I live 5 mins away from the store. So it's easy to return it if I don't like it.
I bought it in 2 sizes, just in case my usual dress size is too big or too small.
Well, the size small, the top half (bust) is slightly too small for me, but bottom half fits fine. The size medium, the top half fits better, but the bottom half is slightly too big/loose for my narrow hips. I'm keeping the medium one. I like the vibrant abstract patterns and the style, there are not many summer dresses that have wide straps and non-floral patterns.

AXCESS Brushstroke Empire Dress - $20.30 shipped (Orig. $54.99)

I purchased a winter coat on, because my other coat with fur-trimmed hood that I bought in 2009 now is too small for me. *sigh*

A few months ago, I think around January, Amazon had 40% off deal on winter coats. I was eyeing at this jacket at the time. After the 40% off discount, the coat was only $33, but I wasn't sure if I wanted to get it or not. When I finally decided to buy it, the 40% off deal was offer. (T_T) Without the discount the coat price was $70.
Week after week, the price gradually decreased. Finally, last week the price dropped to $35. I wanted to wait a little bit longer just in case it'd drop again, but hubby said to just buy it.

I paid partially with the Amazon gift cards that I got from Swagbucks. So it's a pretty good deal for a winter coat.

Big Chill Hooded Moss Micro Coat (Orig. $110. Sale $35.73) - $15.84 shipped

The coat is pretty well made. Inside the coat is lined with black fur fleece. My favorite is the hood. I didn't expect the hood would be so humongous! The hood is detachable too. I think the coat is true to size (women). It's not as form fitting as modeled on me, but that's okay, that way I can wear layers of clothes. If you want it form fitting or if you have a small frame, I think it's safe to get one size smaller.

I bought these today. Trade Secret store is currently having out-of-business sale. The styling tools (flat irons, curing irons) are up to 80% off. The smaller items are buy 1 and get 2nd and 3rd items free, such as hair styling products, nail polish, lotions, and facial care products. You pay the highest value one.
