Since my last post, Lil' Lil'/Harmony has been officially welcomed by the other cats. It actually started about an hour after my last post. Little Girl started dashing around the loft, making playful circles around Lil' Lil'. Soon after, they were chasing each other around the entire upstairs. The next morning they were doing the same thing! We have also discovered that Lil' Lil' loves watching golf on television!

The Top

After discounts, this top came out to be $17.70. This is a keeper! I have very few white or cream colored casual tops, and even less slouchy ones. The ribbon can be tied looser, creating an off-the-shoulder look, but I prefer it as pictured above. The arm holes are surprisingly perfect. Notice in the last image that there is an extra piece of fabric sewn into the slit, so that an undergarment is not necessary (I am only wearing a bra). Another plus about the armholes, is that they do not touch my armpits, which means no discoloration over time!!

Additional Item Details:
~22.5" from top of shoulder to bottom of waist band
~15.5" band at waist
60% cotton / 40% modal


Nine West Booties

I am still holding on to my Nine West shoe order from an earlier post. I cannot seem to part with the open-toe booties. I really like them with these jeans (old pair of Taverniti's), as opposed to bare-legged. I will try the caged heels again around the house tonight, but if I still feel discomfort, those will be going back.

Meet the newest member of our family, Harmony. :) That is her foster name...still considering creating our own. I just call her "Lil' Lil'" right now...to distinguish her from "Little Girl" and "Littlest Girl". :) We adopted her through a local organization that fosters cats and kittens. When she was just weeks old, her and her siblings were found in a box in front of a Wal-Mart!! Poor thing! We can tell she was raised well by her foster family, as she is very affectionate! She loves rubbing her head and body all over, while purring non-stop! She still has not been officially welcomed by the other cats, but the hissing has stopped...not that it was ever terrible! Now they just touch noses, and walk away. Lol!

The Skirt

This skirt was the highly anticipated item of the order. I think I built it up too much in my head, because I am disappointed with the poofiness. I do love the pattern...darling! The stretchy waist is another plus. I wish so bad that I could wear it as a high-waist skirt, but that would be way too short! Not sure if this will be a keeper...leaning on yes now that I see it in photos. I am making the returns this weekend, so I have until then to figure it out. Thoughts?

Additional Item Details:
13" from top to bottom in back
11" band at waist
100% cotton


The Tank

I am surprised how well this top fit!! I love the jersey knit feel...I keep touching it! :p It has subtle "raw-edges" (as described by aerie). The pocket is fake, but pretty darn cute. This will go great tucked in to flowy skirts, or even untucked with jeans. This would work best layered over another tank...on the sheer side. The downside is that layering is not the best in one hundred degree Vegas weather.

Additional Item Details:
18.75" from center top to bottom in front
19.25" from center top to bottom in back
15.25" from arm holes to bottom at sides
80% viscose rayon / 20% cotton


The Necklace

I was able to pick this up for 70% off the sale price, so I figured at $5.02 each, why not get two? They are adjustable, so it works out perfectly!

American Eagle Corset Tube Dress


Featured Items


ae white corset tube dress
size oo
style#: 1396-9521
price: $39.50

ae multicolor chain
style#: 0482-1428
price: $19.50 $9.95

I re-discovered American Eagle last summer. I love that they offer oo and xxs sizes. I have had great experiences with their dresses. I recently received my 40% rewards discount in the mail, and knew I wanted to use it to get ready for the warm weather. I was able to time it just right during an additional 30% off sale items event. This made all my sale items 70% off! Expect more reviews throughout the week...I can only get my husband behind the camera for so long! :p

Unfortunately this dress is already sold out online in both oo and o, but keep an eye out. It is a new item, so it may pop back up due to returns. The necklace was a steal for me with my discount...only $4.18!

I love, love, love this for a casual spring/summer dress! The pretty dots and scalloped hem are great touches. Another big plus...it fits perfectly in the bust. I was very skeptical that the semi-padded bust would be too obvious, but it worked out well. Even better than I expected...I do not even have to wear a bra with this! An additional plus...it is double lined! One thing is odd, though...the ae description mentions a back sash, and even shows this in an image. Mine did not have this. In fact, I checked twice thinking I was crazy! :p

Additional Item Details:
25" from top to bottom in front
23.5" from top to bottom in back
12" band at waist
100% cotton (perhaps I can shrink it a bit so that it is shorter!)


More reviews throughout ths week...I hope to convert you into American Eagle lovers! :)

Bayles: An Open Toe Bootie








I need some help deciding. On Friday night I was putting together my dinner outfit (similar to the above with jeggings), and asked my husband if he liked the new shoes. He immediately gave a disgusted look, and told me I looked impoverished...because of the exposed toes. So, I am wondering if they are skirt/dress/shorts boots only. What do you ladies think? Or am I trying too hard to make them work because of the awesome price? Return or keep?



Felicidad: A Mid Heel Caged Sandal










Another pair that I want to work because of the price! I thought these would be a cute pair of work shoes. Unfortunately, the backs dig into my ankles. I keep thinking...perhaps the roughness will wear down?! Any tips for making it stop? Return or keep?

Nautical Stripe T-Shirt






I think we are all noticing the abundance of stripes at the mall. I especially loved the unique colors and bold stripes of this top. I even love the other color option, gold. As for the fit...amholes are perfect. Neckline is cute. The downfall is the bulkiness of this item. :(


Cotton Metallic Tiered Jacket














I really do not know my true feelings for this jacket. When I saw it on the rack, I thought the color was beautiful, and loved the style...it is something different. Not sure I like it on me. Plus, I was shocked when I saw the price tag. I would have guessed $60 or less, not $98!! So, I will be waiting for a sale. Any thoughts on the look?


Deep Cowl Neck Shell










The color is great, but I do not like how the cowl neck on this fell. Doubt that this will be a future purchase.
