Journal: Shopping Haul

Hey y’all!

I went shopping this weekend with my mom and got some great items! Old Navy had 30% off a few things and I stopped by Nordstrom Rack for the jewelry. 😍 I’m in love with the ring 💍 I was able to find a few matching Nadri pieces to finally create a set. For her designs you really have to hunt them down  and look carefully in store if you want a set! 😉

Fashion and Style: Outfit Planning

Hello everyone~

My boss is always mentioning that I should raid her closet and help her coordinate an outfit for work. With several years of fashion retail experience under my belt, I know my way around personal styling a tad. Although my coworker and I have our eyes gleaming at the thought of dressing up our boss together at her house, we know she is just kidding, although that won’t stop me from giving you these tips! 😀

Tip 1:

Always think about what accessories or individual pieces would go with what you already own in your closet. It will keep you mindful of what may or may not go together. For example, owning a skirt you may never wear as no tops you own look good, or go with it, that will lead to the skirt eventually being donated. Don’t waste your money and be mindful! Also, don’t waste money purchasing an entire outfit around 1 item, unless it already has some value to fit with the rest of your wardrobe.

Tip 2:

Run  you ides by a loved one! It’s always best to run anything you want to purchase with a second opinion. Hopefully someone close to you, as they will know your preferences, your style, and whether you already own something, just like the item you interested in, to prevent you from buying it, I’m looking at you sis!😈 You can also ask for stylistic help from the sales personnel,  I know from the company I worked at we had to keep up to date on trends and fashion styles to assist our clients. Depending on which company or brand you go to, the workers should be able to assist you stylistically. 😀

Tip 3:

Outfit planning is a technique I learned at work. What we did is create and coordinate outfits on our mannequins and displays on the sales floor and fitting rooms. It helped inspire customers to purchase items and coordinate similarly to the display or purchase the entire display off the mannequins. What I’m trying to say is, pre-plan your outfits. Try out you outfit idea on a hanger; top with a sweater together on a hanger, with a scarf wrapped around too, maybe hang a necklace above the top on the hanger. If you can see your outfit in front of you, you’ll be able to see what works together to coordinate or mix and match an outfit. I usually pre-plan outfits for an entire week after finishing the laundry. It helps since I’m usually short on time in the mornings before work. If all my outfits are ready, it gives me piece of mind as all i need to do next is make up and jewelry and I’m out the door like lightning.

Good luck and don’t forget to strike a magnificent pose and slay!😘

Shopping Haul

Hey guys!

I went shopping last weekend and I thought it would be nice to share with y’all what I got. I wasn’t originally planning to go out since I’m trying to keep up my savings but my sis needed a few things and the shopaholic in me took over at the end to buy just one item, even though it’s not for me. 🙃

My sis tried on all the shoes I asked her to and I must say those black Report shoes are too cute! She ended up buying these in store at Nordstrom Rack and a nude pair online.

While my sis was trying on more shoes I walked over to the handbag section with my mom and found these cute mini bags.

We got hungry and ate at Gordon Birsch and I had a mani mahi sandwich with sweet potato fries and a slice of my mom’s veggie pizza from her plate.

Last but not least, the item I bought that wasn’t for me. My boss asked me to buy a plant buddy for his office so I found an about $20 artificial one at Home Goods. My boss can’t grow a thing as he is a newbie so artificial is best, plus this looks super real! He said if he doesn’t pay me back, and he hasn’t yet, I can keep or return it. 😗 I’ve gotten so many compliments already on it just after a day so I may just keep it at my station!

6 Kawaii Toy and Plushy Lines to Enjoy

Hi Lovelies~
I love everything kawaii, and you can never grow out of it once you’re hooked. Just as you are never too old for toys, or celebrating Halloween for that matter, ha! 😛

Tsum Tsum by Disney
If you stay out of the loop of everything Disney, then you haven’t heard of the Tsum Tsum plush toy line. They are a huge hit in Japan and now the US, with even their own video game in the APP store (very addictive and better than Candy Crush I might add). If you watch Disney channel, you can even watch little short story adventures of these plushies during commercials from time to time. So cute! Continue reading
