Free People Modern Kimono Dress Review

Well... I didn't love it.




This is the Modern Kimono Dress $168 that I am talking about.
First of all, the dress was a bit heavy. And I do not have enough boobs.... lol

I could probably wear a tank or something under... The dress is thick enough, so I don't think you'd need a slip, but if you prefer the white, and wear black underwear... hmm you might wanna consider a slip lol


I ordered size 6, as the model in the pic is wearing size 6. I am size 2 in Anthro dresses.
I always order the size models on the pic is wearing.

And it looked like this on me.



Little bit of a night wear like.... Maybe it doesn't look good on Asian skin?? I love the model shot though.

I may buy the blue one when it hits sale. I am gonna go check the blue one in store when I return this one!!


Here is the close up photos of the dress!



It's just prints... If this dress was from Anthro, there would be some sequins or beads or something.. You know what I mean??


There is a good news about this dress, though!!


I found out that this dress is sold everywhere!!

BloomingdaleZappos, SouthMoonUnder (They are on sale on this site, but I never purchased anything on this site.. or never heard of it before..)
Macy's, Nordstrom, ShopBop, and Sak's Fifth Avenue...

You know what that means?

They will more likely go on sale. So... I will wait!!!

Plus, I spent waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay more than I should spend this month... I should be good till my birthday month!! Yippie!!!

Boots! Boots! BOOTS!

So... I sold couple of my favorite boots this month...


And... I bought more boots... this month..


What am I doing...


Well, at least I bought boots with no heels!!


First pair is.. A.S.98 Jaq Boot from Free People. OMG, look at them! They are gooooorgeous!!!
Love love love them!! I got the green color but there are black ones available for few sizes!

I ordered size 38, I am a true size 8. They fit. but I feel like they are little narrow. I can't wear thick socks with these. I should probably get 39 if I ever see a black pop back in my size..lol



Next two pairs.. Bed Stu Gogo Boots are from Anthropologie. I think they are sold out now but you might find them pop back sometime!!  In fact there are size 7 in brown available!




See the buckles?? Black one comes over the zipper.. and brown doesn't.. Black ones might be defect.. but my feet can fit in there, so I didn't care... If you bought a pair... let me know how yours look like!

I got these in size 8, and they are TTS. I can wear decent socks and pretty comfy!

Guess what, though!! I found the boots in other sites!!

Zappos for $260 in three colors!! And Nordstrom has Black for $$274.95 and Brown for $211.10


OHHHHHHHHHHHH

before I publish this post... I need to warn you...

These Bed Stu boots......................

SMELLS!!!!!!!


STRONG Leather PAINT smell!!

I've been keeping these in my trunk. LOL If I take them out in the sun for couple days, I think they will be okay, but it's been raining here a lot, so I hadn't had chance yet..



So, be warned..

Anthro day tomorrow? Well, Free People 25% extra on sale already! AND Reviews!!!

OMG! It's finally Friday!! It was a looooong week... Maybe because of the Day Time Saving? I mean.. that thing mess things up...

Anyways, I am glad it's Friday!



So..  I check FP site every morning, and I found they are offering extra 25% off sale staring today!

Good thing.. I can get PA!! I ordered these boots last week. And a dress. They are on the way, so I am not sure how they'd look like, but I am pretty excited!!




Free People actually carry more dresses that I am eyeing over Anthroplogie right now. 
They offer Free Shipping over $150, and I have a store nearby, so it's pretty convenient for me!!

I was checking through the sale.. and found these beauty...
There is only one size left... I wish they had my size on these boots..


GOOD NEWS!! I found these beauties on full price here! I am gonna stalk them for sale!


Did you hear about Anthro Day news? People are saying there will be 20% off everything. I think last Anthro Day was 15% off everything. We shall see what's gonna happen tomorrow!!! I hope they will offer Free Shipping with it, though... There are few dresses I want to order, if they have 20% AND Free Shipping. lol

I am planning to buy this perfume tomorrow. I've wanted it for a loooong time... but never really had a chance because I always spend the money on clothes.. I know... it's sold out online.. It went sold out last time I posted it on my blog.. lol but there are two left in my store!!! 

Last time I went to Anthro, I tried on some dresses, and jackets.
I had to drag Rachel out of bed for that!! <3 I went to Starbucks, getting ready to go into the store...lol


I am going to get couple PA tomorrow, if the 20% is real!! Fingers crossed!!



This dress run small for me, I sized up to 4. I tried both sizes 2 and 4, and I liked the fit of size 4. 
It comes with slip, but the most dresses in the sale room didn't have slips anymore... It's a cute dress. I almost bought it, but I put it back because I don't love it. It's too girly for my taste. And check this picture down below.

Hope you can see it. The detail is pretty, but it started to pill already. Most of the dresses on the sale rack had worse pilling than this, If I get a dress, I don't want it to last for one year. I need it to last for along time.. Anthro.. you are not F21..

So, I passed.

But it IS a pretty dress!!!

 Next is.. Knit Field Jacket $158 by Marrakech
Oh my!! It's an Online Only item but I found it in my store, I had to try it on. (I had it in my wishlist already.. It comes in greenish beige color too, but the color way is sold out.. sad..)

I hope I can get PA for this. This is MUST HAVE!!! I didn't buy it on the day, but I went in the next day, and brought it home!

 Okay, the fit.. I am wearing size S in this one. I could probably size down, but I like the length and there is little space for layer. It's PERFECT!!
I bought another Marrakech Jacket that Rachel showed me on that day. 

This, I had to order my normal size S from store. If she didn't buy this and  mention it, I would't have noticed it. It doesn't look so special until you try it on!!! I LOVED the back detail. 
I think this brand is pretty awesome!!


I am wearing my normal size S. I could probably size down, but length wise, I like S and this was the last one in store. 
I was going to get the Arcata Patchwork Dress or this, and I decided to take this home. 
It's pretty.. but.. it wasn't love for me, so I returned it.. You'd find something like this everywhere in Japan. So maybe that's one of the reason I don't love. 
I love something that is unique, but pretty, and can wear it even when I am super old.. 
Plus, little too fancy to wear with my daughter around. 
But maybe if it's $40... hmmm nah, maybe not.


This is another "Japan-ish" dress. But I liked it. It fits perfect, I am wearing size S, it's comfy and I can see myself playing with my daughter in it. I will most likely buy this when it's on sale. :)

.....
I used to own a dress in the same color, and I loved it, so I had to try this on. But I don't like the lace detail.. I am wearing size S, fits TTS but the length? something was off.. Pass..

MEH 100%.. I don't like how the shoulder looks. I didn't check if it was padded? Maybe I am wearing a wrong dress with it. or wrong size. I grabbed S I think. I could easily go down. Anyways, I don't love this. so, PASS.




There are couple online order items from Anthro that I am receiving pretty soon. 
I will try to make time to post it when I receive them!!


Oh wow... I didn't take any OOTD this week.. Maybe because I was too busy building IKEA furniture! LOL 

Have a wonderful weekend!!!

Happy Weekend!!

Wow, I woke up this morning and was going to stay in bed... but I got up..

Why?


Because I wanted to order some bras on Victorias Secret. LOL


I am obsessed with their front hook Very Sexy line. I have blue, black, green, wine, more black, pink, etc... but I don't have beige!!!! I think they don't normally make beige because the whole point of those bras are so it'd look cool if the back shows. (They are also called strappy bras) But for me, I like the front hook. They keep my tiny boobs in bras and makes them look nice!







BUT!!

I finally found it. They are online now. 

I've been trying to go check out the store but something always comes up, and I never had a chance to go. So, I am just going to order online! Why not, right!??  

They are running Very Sexy event right now. Some of the line is cheaper through this Sunday! YAY!!





Where do you buy bras?? I started with VS when I moved to the states. (I thought that's the only place you can buy bras in the states) But I found some other places, and tried them. I never tried Nordstrom, I heard they are good. And I came back to VS, and now I am settled. 


This week, I was feeling pretty lazy. Maybe because of the rain... gah, I hate rainy days!!! so..... BORiNG!!!



 Double Breasted Shirt Dress (sim here and here)
Free People Malena Rider Boot by Pour La Victoire
Reflected Buckle Belt (sim here)
Diamondknit Infinity Scarf (sim here)
Uniqlo Heat Tech Black Tee (sim here and here)


The funny thing about this outfit was... that I was trying to sell this dress. And nobody really wanted it, so I just gave it another chance.. and I love it!!!! I think I just needed to learn how to layer this dress. I am thinking, maybe denim shirt next time. I will see what I can do!!! 

Tie-Back Tank
Crumpled Placket Cardi (sim here and here)
Cropped Crepe Wide-Legs (sim here and here)
Jeweled Cocoon Necklace


I bought this tank from someone on FB!! And the necklace is from my beautiful friend, Linda <3 Thank you!!

I just realized... well, the most of the things I am wearing is from last year, or older from Anthro. But I can find super similar items that are in store now!!  

This is the reason I haven't bought new arrivals lately. They need to bring something interesting, not something similar!!! I don't need 10 similar dresses!!!!!!!!!!

Something unique, but something I can wear for years, not just trendy stuff... 

Am I asking too much!??



Saturday, March 5, 2016

I am not good at naming title.. but here are some reviews..

Howdy! How was your week?? I can't believe it's been a week since the last post!! Time flies!!

I finally got to go to Anthro, and tried on some cuties!!


The sale room was almost empty. And new arrivals, ummm there wasn't anything that "OMG, I have to have!" dress. Last year, or couple years ago, there were so many of those.. My husband says I have enough clothes, and don't need any more. Is that why??

NO girls have enough dresses!!

Come on, Anthro!! I am waiting!!!



Welp... This caught my eye, though. This kimono. Detail was so pretty, and it has arm holes!! LOL (Last kimono I ordered online, it was just a scarf.. it was called Kimono but, no armholes.. just put it over shoulders... really??  I returned it.. Don't name a scarf kimono and charge so much!!!!!!!


It comes in one size, but they do have petite online! 
I am trying the regular one, length is perfect for me, 5'7". 
It's creamy white, and embroidered, so I might just have to buy it full price, before people ruin it!!

 and... yay! for washable!!


 Here is the popular Marlee Bib Tee $88
I am wearing S. I think I could go with XS. I wish this was a dress... It would have been so cute!
Fabric is soft, but not thin. amazing detail. I almost bought it, but decided to wait for sale. 
It is a bit too "girly" for me. 
I had to have my friend Rachel help me decide, though! Thank you, girl!! 
And soon, she will show up on this blog!! (Right, Rachel!?)


Back of the neck has two buttons and yes, washable, baby!!


 I decided not to look at tops or skirts a while ago. 
There are so many things I have to buy if you look everything, you know... 
I just stick to dress only!!!

BUT... sometimes, there are exceptions. I just found this tee on a hanger. I just had to buy it. 

I am wearing size M. (I normally wear size 2, S) 
SUper soft and light weight. I believe it's TTS but this was the last one they had, and I like the loose fit on me, so I brought it home!


 I finally tried on the Arcata Patchwork Dress $148
I am wearing size S, believe it's TTS. It is cute, but I am trying to avoid prints. My closet is full of prints!! (Thanks Anthro!) And it's already hot in CA, so I am going to wait for the sale. This should be on sale already!! 
Love the stings on the chest,though. I see this thing everywhere this season! 
I MUST have one, at least, right!?

 And the last thing I tried on, was.. Drawstring Midi Shirtdress $138
I am wearing size 2, feel like TTS. It's little meh, for me. I like it though, maybe I need a belt with it?
It looked like I am in pj.. It is comfy, though! will wait for sale, then I will consider! lol



I am little lost here...  I find more "LOVE" items in Free People than Anthropologie these days... 
It is nice that they have extra % off every other week.. but it's little too much!! Please WOW me with some amazing clothes like you used to!!!!


Right before I checked out, I found some gorgeous jewelry.. that I MUST buy.  
Oh but I am not buying at full price. I learned they go on sale eventually. LOL, sorry but I am not buying them full price, Anthropologie. I can wait for your sale. :P

These are so cute!! Bracelets are must for summer!!! They come in three different colors. I want the green and blue!! <3



And check out these pretty earrings! I think I am done with huge ones. I want ones that I can wear daily! I added these in my wishlist!!



It's time for my recent outfits!!

gah... I have to add my name on them.. be right back.... 


here, they are!!! (this is annoying!)

After re organizing my closet, and clearing things that I don't wear, I am starting to realize what I should buy, and what I should not buy. 

I've spent so much money on something I don't need. Just because they are good deal, or pretty.. NO, don't waste money on those!! Save the money for what I really love!
You should do that too!!

Anthro Addicts must have shopping rules, otherwise, you will lose everything at the end!!!


What is your style these days? Do you have any rules for your shopping?? Do you have any MUST HAVE that I am missing out???
