sunday shopping spree. sweet dresses. June 14, 2009

So, when I write “sweet,” I don’t mean “suh-weet!” I mean “people will think you are sweet.” You know? Kind of saccharine and innocent? Like that. But moving on: today, I have six different dresses, from six different retailers, and I love every single one of them. Maybe it’s because I’m really into dresses, or maybe it’s because I like indulging in my girly side once in a while. No matter the reason, the fact is, they are here, and they want you to buy them! Well, I guess I’m just putting words into their non-existent mouths, but you get what I mean.

woven tea party dress.

I don’t go to any tea parties, but if I did (and I desperately want to do so), I would definitely wear this dress, with a large sunhat. And maybe some gloves? You get the picture. As the cheapest dress, at $22.80, it seems as if my hopes of wearing this dress (regardless of whether or not it’s at a tea party) are not lofty. Get it here, at Forever21, and you can choose from sizes small to large in this color (fuschia, or pink) or orange.

drawstring plaid dress.

Okay, first off: doesn’t this dress look purple? Doesn’t it?! Sigh. Is it just me because I can’t tell if I’ve been looking at the computer too long? Well, anyway, the reason that I ask so fervently for agreement is because Papaya says it’s “light grey,” which I know must be wrong. Oh, well. Get it here, for $26.99, in this color or a nice navy. It comes in sizes small to large.

black and white plaid corset dress.

Some people probably won’t agree with me that this is a sweet dress, but I stand by the fact that I think it is. Sweet like a school girl. Or something. Get it here, at Hot Topic (where else?) for the ultimately sweet price of half-off! Yes, that’s right. It’s now $30.98, instead of its original tag of $62.00. This plaid is the only color, but the range of sizes includes extra small to extra extra large. That’s my commercialized store! Spreading punk to the masses!

daydream sun dress.

I think this dress can claim the title of “Sweetest Dress of Them All.” It’s white, for one, and it has that pure innocence look about it, don’t you think? Cutiemues is selling it for $52 here, and it comes in sizes small to large.

Cultural Trust Dress

cultural trust dress.

ModCloth always has the most elegant and endearing dresses. I love them. Even though this dress is quite black, I think that it is still a sweet dress for its neckline, ruffles, and darling buttons. Who doesn’t like little buttons in a sweet dress? No, really. Tell me who, and I’ll kick their ass. Ahem. It comes in sizes small to large here, for $64.99.

delightful blue petal like prom dress.

Last (but certainly not least, as you will soon see when I write the price), is this gorgeous, ethereal dress. Sure, the name has the word “prom” in it, but I could easily see it being worn at a fancy dinner or something equally high-class. Although, I’m not really sure how you would sit down in this thing. I would think that the “petals” would be a downright bother. If you don’t think so (or don’t care), Unique Vintage sells them here, and it’s on sale for $88, in sizes extra small to large. But! If this gorgeous blue isn’t your thing, it also comes in white, pink, orange, and black, where the choice of sizes and the price is the same. Secret: I think this dress would make me look like a fairy, and that is precisely the reason that I like it.

thrifty thursday. rose hair accessories. May 28, 2009

Hey, there, dear readers! It’s time for another Thrifty Thursday! This week, I found five different hair accessories that will appeal to your floral (and frugal) sides. Just like every Thursday, each product listed will be under $20, so here we go!

floral bobby pin set.

I LOVE these bobby pins! They are simply adorable, and while other sites are selling them for up to twenty dollars, Forever21 is only selling them for $3.80! And you get six! They also come in four different color choices! CAN YOU TELL I AM EXCITED?! Ahem. Anyway, get them here, and choose from the combinations of hot pink and cream, red and black, white and turquoise (pictured because it’s my favorite), and hot pink and blue. This set is definitely the best deal of the bunch.

black and red check lace flower clip.

This little number is for the more wild readers out there, who decide that they need a little pattern (checkers, in this case) on their rose accessory. Get it here at Hot Topic, for $8, you wild things.

Homecoming Court Clip

homecoming court clip.

A more traditional rose clip is available at ModCloth, here, for $14.99. I guess if you like your hair clips pricier (and hopefully well-made), then these last three roses should float your boat.

Vintage Inspired Crimson Felt Flower Hair Clip / Pin

vintage inspired crimson felt flower hair clip/pin.

Felt? Huh. It’s very interesting and kind of arts-and-crafts-y. Right? Well, if you want your rose to look like a Girl Scout at summer camp made it (which is not necessarily a bad thing), get it here, at Plasticland, for $15.

full bouquet clip.

The last one on this list is arguably the most exquisite. But what else would you expect from Anthropologie, really? A lot of their accessories are to die for. But don’t die; just get it here, for $18, and choose from grey, ivory, pink (featured above), and coral (which is an orange-ish color).

So, what are you waiting for? Who doesn’t look good with a flower behind their ear?

sunday shopping spree. coats. May 10, 2009

It’s that day of the week again! I love the Sunday Shopping Spree because it gives me an excuse (even more than this blog gives me) to hunt for cute things that fit a theme. Yay! Okay, this week, I found nine different coats for you, dear reader, from five different retailers. Rejoice in the coat! Yes, I realize that it is very nearly summer, but you could always buy these coats in preparation for winter. Right? Right! On to these lovelies, in ascending price order:

CHOCOLATE

twill self belt jacket.

Well, considering the name has “jacket” in it, you can guess that it is not really a coat but is quite cute nonetheless. This, um, jacket is $22.50 here at Wet Seal and comes in three colors: chocolate (or brown, which is pictured above), khaki, and white. You can buy khaki or white in sizes small, medium, and large and chocolate in small.

houndstooth wool swing jacket.

Yeah, yeah. I realize that this one also has “jacket” in the name. Whatever. It’s adorable. I love swing jackets. So there. If you want this cute thing, go here to Forever21, where it is $29.80 (again, with their weird prices). The site only carries this one color, in sizes medium and large. Very retro. Also, it probably won’t keep you warm. Just saying…

Wuthering Heights Jacket

wuthering heights jacket.

This next one definitely won’t keep you warm and is called a jacket, as well. And looking down the list of things to post, only one item is actually called a coat. Maybe I should have called this Sunday Shopping Spree “Jackets,” instead? Oh, well. I don’t really care to change it. Moving on! I love the name for this piece: Wuthering Heights Jacket. I hated the book, but the name calls up images of romanticism, which is also true for this jacket. Just look at. Super cute. Buy it here, at Modcloth, for $47.99 in sizes small, medium, or large.

Fawn Brown Canvas Bib Jacket by Tulle Clothing

fawn brown canvas bib jacket.

Yes, another jacket, under the guise of “Coats.” I hate you all. Anyway, this deer-colored (Get it? Fawn? I crack myself up.) jacket is quite nice, and you can find it here, at Plasticland for the not quite so nice price of $56. The site says that the jacket tends to run small, so check out their size chart before you buy. This jacket comes in sizes extra small to extra large, so availability shouldn’t hold you back.

Green Cord Cropped Swing Jacket by Tulle Clothing

green cord cropped swing jacket.

Oh, my goodness, another swing jacket! How did that get there? The swing jacket fairy must have dropped it here… It would be a shame not to tell you where to find it, now wouldn’t it? Yes. Of course. So… buy it here, also at Plasticland, in this gorgeous green color that comes in sizes extra small to medium. Once again, the site says that this item runs small, so I’m sorry for those readers who wear larger than a medium. Feel lucky, though, that you don’t have to spend $59 on this swing jacket and go buy that houndstooth one.

in the city jacket.

Okay, so even though this caption says, “jacket,” it really means “coat.” Look at it. It’s obviously a coat, right? Right. If you want to buy this misnamed black coat, get it here, at Cutimus for $68 in small, medium, or large. Look at all those buttons… and the bell-like sleeves… and the sash… Le sigh.

Polka Dot Retro Cropped Jacket by Tulle Clothing

polka dot retro cropped jacket.

Fine, this one deserves the jacket name, but I swear it’s the last one in the list that is a jacket and not a coat. Does that make you feel better, dear readers? I hope so. Buy this adorable polka-dotted charcoal jacket here at Plasticland for $86. You can get it in sizes extra small to large, which should be true to size.

Magical Mystery Tour Coat

magical mystery tour coat.

Finally! The one true coat in the list. I know you’ve been waiting for it, and isn’t it gorgeous? Look at that magnificent color! It’s almost blinding how purple this Magical Mystery Tour Coat is. The name even goes with the color, doesn’t it? Buy it here, at ModCloth, in sizes extra-small to large, for the magical price of $99.99. Maybe all those nines are somehow special and mysterious? In the my-money-is-gone-before-I-knew-it kind of way.

Notre Dame Bell Trench

notre dame bell trench.

Lastly, a coat that is called a trench. Oh, well. It has a pretty, retro feel to it, and you can buy it here at ModCloth for $104.99, which will remind you of Notre Dame and why you didn’t go there in the first place. Private schools are so expensive… This coat comes in sizes extra small to large and is definitely worthy of that bow.

buffalo plaid tube dress. what a name. April 25, 2009

This dress is quite adorable. I love bows, and I especially love them on the bust. Don’t ask me why. Because I don’t know. Anyway, I can see this dress being worn with black tights and heels or with high-tops and some funky bracelets. I love it, and I want it.

BLACK/WHITE
buffalo plaid. in a tube. dress.

It’s only $14.99, from the original $29.50, and it also comes in pink and black. Personally, I like the white and black better, but you can find both here, at Wet Seal, from XS to L. Beware, though: their sizing tends to run a bit small.
