ASOS Petite Shopping Haul

Hi Ladies,
Things are still crazy with the move...actually, things are absolutely crazy! I won't go into details now, because I'm still in shell shock, but let's just say it involved 2 days in a car with a howling cat, sleeping on the floor of a 100 degree apatment, bathing in the kitchen with paper towels...TWICE and some other stuff that I've probably blocked. I'm probably only going to get a chance to post twice this week and I know I'm so behind on keeping up with commetns. :( I hope things will calm down by next week! Miss chatting with you guys! Here's a post that I wrote a few weeks ago....

I took advantage of the sale that Asos had a few weeks ago. I love it when they do those 50% off sales, especially since most things were all arond $30! (If you don't know, Asos carries Petites, Misses and Plus and ships to many countries.) Unfortunately, I didn't fall in love with anything, especially since its so late in the season.

So, I felt that this Petite Chambray Swing Dress looked liked a nightgown on me. However, I tried it on with a belt to see if I like it better. It's better, but I'm not in love. I also would need to shorten the straps, so I wouldn't have continuous "wardrobe mishaps". I got a size 10P, which is the normal dress size for me. I would definitely size down.

I felt the same way about this swing dress. I bought a 10P, but it fit much better in the chest.
 

 

I don't know....I'm not loving all the emphasis on my chest area and I think the length is too short?? (I bought a 10P.)

I think it's definitely too short and it was tight under my arms, even though I bought a 12P. What's up with that?

New Subscription Box - Lip Factory Review

Hi Ladies,
I decided to try a new makeup subscription service that was a little cheaper than Wantables. Lip Factory is only $22/ month and they provide makeup products customized to your skin tone and prefernces. I have to say that I wasn't overly impressed with the selection. Firstly, it bugs me to recieve dark blue eye shadow in the middle of summer and secondly, I'd tried the NCLA nail wraps before and didn't like them.

One plus was the blush...it's a beautiful rosy/ coral shade that blended in beautifully with my skin. The lip stick and gloss was pretty, but I felt that they are more of a winter color. Oh well, I probably will not continue with Lip Factory, but it was fun giving it a try.

Have a great day! (BTW, I should be on my way to Cali when you are reading this!) EEEEEK! :)

Striped Blazer and Denim Trousers

Striped Blazer and Denim Trousers
Hi Ladies,
Just a quickie post today! I'm packing and wrapping stuff up at work, so things are crazy! I wanted to quickly point out that I love denim trousers by Banana Republic. When my weight fluctuates, I just buy a larger size and I find that they fit well over a large range of sizes...they go up to a 16 regular and 14 in petite. Anyway, just a thought if you are looking for denim. Take Care :)
