Kikay Style: Kimono Style Floral Dress

Hello everyone! How are you doing? I know I have been #MIA for weeks due to a busy #mommyhood life. I have two little hyper active boys that I have to deal with. By the time they’re in bed I’m also too tired to write anything. My brain just doesn’t work. And when I’m too tired, I couldn’t think of anything but go to sleep.

Anyway, today I’m sharing this very pretty dress. I’m not a dress person, to be honest. However, when I see one that I like, I have to make sure also that the material feels soft and cool to my skin. This dress is perfect!

This Kimono style summer dress is made out of floral print fabric. It also features an elastic waistband and a string tie at the back of the neck.

Now, this dress is quite long. I’m only 4’11” and this dress is way too long for me. I had to wear 5-inch heels during this shoot because I don’t want to step on the bottom part of my dress and ruin it. U-uh, no way!

Knit Sweater Kind Of Day

It’s Spring season, however, it doesn’t feel like it. It’s been raining for days and it’s really nasty outside. Even my furry baby (my dog) doesn’t wanna go out. So, for days I’m back to wearing sweaters. Just the lighter ones, not those thick sweaters. This knit sweater I am wearing below is just perfect!

I don’t know why, but I get to feeling cold too quick, especially in this kind of weather. I’m from a tropical country (Philippines) and I love to feel cozy all the time. Who doesn’t want to feel cozy anyway? Right? Spring is not my favorite season at all. When it’s not raining during Spring, I will be so miserable because of my allergies, and I can’t stay outside longer because of the pollen. Thankfully, the rain helps reduce my allergies to pollen. On the other hand, when it’s raining, I can’t wear t-shirts because I always feel cold too quick. Hmm, what should I do? Can anybody relate to this?

About this sweater? I got this from Belk like a year ago. I love this sweater so much. Honestly, this is my most favorite and comfortable knit sweater ever! Also, I only paid under $10.00 for this including tax.

Zipper Back Off Shoulder Crop Top For Under $10

//pagead2.googlesyndication.com/pagead/js/adsbygoogle.js (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I’m not a crop top type of person and wearing this Off Shoulder Crop Top from SHEIN was, in fact, a challenged for me. It looked really nice and cute in online photo so I decided to purchase this top and give it a try. It’s under $10.00 only! I was so excited while waiting for it to arrive. I just couldn’t wait to try it on. I ordered the Extra-Small ( XS ) size because that’s what I wear. As soon as this top arrived, I tried it right away.

This top is not only cute but also hot! The only specific thing I don’t like about this top is the bust area. It’s a little too wide for me and I am wearing the Extra-Small. I would recommend that if you wear a size Small and you would like to get this top? Make sure to get the Extra-Small. I think this top runs a little bigger.

Time to Stock Up

5 Thrift Store Shopping Tips

Shopping at a thrift store or in short “thrifting” is not for everybody. Some people don’t even wanna hear the word “thrift store”. Some people loves it. I’m one of those people who love thrift stores. Every time I shops at a thrift store I always get out with a very big smile, and always proud with the stuff I found. Just don’t be afraid to dig and get your hands dusty/dirty.

Below, I’m gonna share with you my shopping tips before I go to any thrift store.

Casual chic style fashion.

Ain’t this vest so cute?

START WITH A PLAN

Don’t just go to a thrift store or even in any other store without a plan. Think about what you want to look for. Be specific and write it down. I have to write down stuff all the time otherwise I forget. Yes, I’m that forgetful (sounds awful right?). One of my biggest for writing down what I want is to have a guide also. I love vintage stuff. Honestly, they’re like candies to me. But having a guide or note I can actually focus and prioritize what’s on my list.

BE READY TO GET YOUR HANDS DUSTY/DIRTY

To those who hasn’t been to a thrift store, get ready. Sometimes the dust can be overwhelming. Some thrift stores ain’t that dusty, but some are, just saying. If you’re not willing to get your hands dusty or dirty, then you should stick to shopping at the mall or a boutique.

TAKE YOUR TIME

Thrift store can be overwhelming. I spend an hour or two every time I’m thrifting. So, before you even go thrifting, make sure that you have plenty of time to spare for it. No need to rush, there’s no fun thrifting if you’re rushing. You might miss a diamond somewhere because you’re rushing and don’t wanna look around, hahaha. There’s plenty of great stuff or great deals at any thrift store that’s worth checking out. Time, time, time….because baby, all you need is time.

CHECK YOUR PICKS

Once you found the stuff from your list don’t get too excited. One thing you should do first before you even check out is to check your items. Make sure there’s no holes, ripped stitches, or stains. Ripped stitches ain’t that bad if you can sew then great! I can’t stand stains so I always check my picks not just once just to be sure.

ALWAYS THANK THE PERSON AT THE REGISTER WHEN CHECKING OUT

Before leaving the store, always thank the person at the register with the great deals you have found. Everyone loves to hear that. It lighten up someone’s day.

A Pop Of Pink Flowy Dress In Winter

Follow my blog with Bloglovin

I’m not a winter person. I really can’t stand cold. Even though I have been living in the United States for ten years, but I’m still a tropical person. However, I maybe don’t like the cold weather, but I love the winter fashion looks – from the boots, scarves, cardigans, coats and head caps.

I’m loving this High Neck Flowy Dress. The material is so soft and cool to my skin which I love the most. The fact that I can also wear this style in spring time is an additional points for me. The size I’m wearing here is extra-small. However, if you wear extra-small size you probably should get the “small” size. The extra-small size shoulder width is a little bit narrow. Not so much though, just a little bit.

ABOUT THE COLOR?

As a matter of fact, I was not a “pink color” fan, but that has changed after I got this dress. I realized that the pink color looks good on my skin. So, yay!! I’m pleased with that. I love that the style and the color of this dress go really with my furry scarf (the one I’m wearing here is sold out so I’m linking a similar one ), tan high heel boots, and this cute Brahmin crossbody bag ( this style is also sold out, I’m linking similar one here ).

Winter Fashion style.

Artsy Kind Of Day:Saddle Bag Custom Designs

My original plan for today was to bake a cake. Did I do it? Yes, I did! Unfortunately, while baking it, I got distracted with something else; I forgot about it and when I remembered, it was a little too late, I burnt my cake. My efforts; the ingredients; the time was wasted. Well, time to move on.

After that “cake thingy” incident I decided to go ahead and create some arts (my stress reliever) as I mentioned before. Today, I’m gonna share a few of my custom saddle bag designs on ArtsAdd. My store on ArtsAdd is pretty new, I need your support by ordering something there that you might like. It would be wonderful! So let’s go ahead, shall we?
