Be Fashionable In An Affordable Way

Dolled UP by Fang Red Sheer Belted Graphic Top

LA Class Snake-Print Top

JFW By Just For Wraps Pink Stripe Maxi Dress
 Who's to say that you have to buy expensive clothes to be fashionable? If you are patient enough, you will find some very reasonable prices on clothing, shoes and accessories online and even-in stores. Now that summer is almost over, this is the perfect time to buy summer clothes. I know there are some that thinks it is useless to buy summer clothes now since the cold weather is coming. Actually, in my opinion, this is the time to buy a bunch of them, your money won't go to waste because you can always wear it the next summer and plus the good deals and savings you'll get buying off-season clothing! DUH! 

I never buy clothing that are over $10, I always buy those that are on sale. What's the difference? Sale or not sale, they're still brand new! Anyway, this week I got some pretty good deals on clothes! Like I said on my previous post I bought some that were as low as $2 and they weren't cheap quality either. They just didn't come from unknown store, like it is a very reputable store who sells expensive and high quality clothing and other household stuff. Anyway, above pictures are few of my favorite tops that I bought from that store, but I am not keeping those, they are truly pretty in person! The maxi dress is already sold and some others that I didn't include...

I L♥ve Bargains!

Who doesn't like bargains? I'm pretty sure everybody loves to get a bargain on things everyday! I know I do but I'm pretty aware that bargain only comes once in a while! But if one is really want to save some money, all he/she has to do is to look around online. That's what I do mostly everyday. I never miss checking my favorite stores online to see if some kind of promotions going on.

Anyway, talking about bargains. I bought 10 clothing online and only paid a little over $25 for them, no tax and free shipping! Now, tell me if that's not a bargain! They're not cheap clothing either, they came from a very reputable store! The prices that I paid there were as low as $2! Those tops that I ordered I am selling on Facebook. Passing the savings to others because I sell them for a very reasonable prices!

A few minutes ago I just ordered more stuff. I got 11 items in my cart and paid a little almost $26. I always try to reach $25 because that is the minimum amount in order to get the free shipping. Not too bad in my opinion, unlike some other stores, you have to purchase $50 or more! I really love this store now! I saved so much money buying from them. I also make sure that every item that I buy there I'll wear and in my size so that if nobody buys it, I can wear it for myself and it won't be wasted!

Bye-Bye To My First Coach Handbag!


Yup! After listing it on ebay and on Yardsale on Facebook for how many weeks, my first Coach handbag is finally gonna get sold! The other night, after thinking about to just keep it as a remembrance I deleted the listing on yardsale on Facebook but didn't do it on ebay because there were 2 watchers on it. I was thinking that if it wasn't gonna sell that I am not gonna list it on there again. But last night somebody just put a bid on it, the listing will end in a few hours! 

So this is bittersweet for me! I mean I really like the handbag but for some reason I just don't feel like using an expensive handbag like Coach. Well, it's not officially sold yet until I receive the cleared payment but I am very certain that this person who put a bid on it will pay for it!

I Redeemed My Coupons From VS Today

I finally got the chance to redeem my two VS coupons at their store today. Thanks to my husband for dropping me off at the mall, although he was kinda upset about it because it was out of his route but still did it and I got to shop at the mall for a few minutes. 

Anyway, I had a coupon for a free lace waist highugger underwear and a coupon for $10 off a purchase. I decided to use the $10 off coupon to buy the same underwear that I am getting for free. So instead of paying $26 for 5 I got 6 and paid a little over $17 for them tax already included. I think it's pretty good! I so love their hiphugger underwear but I don't have any plan to keep them. I already listed on Yardsale on Facebook to see if it will see. Anyway, below are the underwears that I got at Victoria's Secret. Aren't they sweet?LOL


Aside from the good deals that I got from VS, I also got a bargain from JCPenney. I went there with the intention to just window shop. I went to the shoes clearance and was just looking around until I spotted this very cute snake print high heel shoes on clearance for $6! Unbelievable to my eyes, so I grabbed it although it wasn't my size because I am planning on selling it on yardsale on facebook! hehe...so here's the shoes below...

I Got My IPod Today!


Here's what my IPod touch look like. I was really surprised that it came today. The estimated delivery date was between Thursday and next Tuesday. I'm surprised that it came a day ahead and I haven't even received my case and screen protector for it which were shipped first.

Well, I'm not complaining that it came early, in fact I am super duper excited when I saw it waiting for me in the mail. I got to play with it and set up some accounts on Itunes and Apple, etc. The bad news is I can't put any songs on it using my computer because my USB on my computer somehow got damaged which I don't know how. Even the one on the back of my CPU is not working! WEIRD indeed!

But anyway, I'm gonna get my laptop out tomorrow and try to put some songs on it so that when we go out tomorrow or some time this week I can bring it with me and listen to some songs or do some other things, play games or check my Facebook if Wi-Fi is available!

Green Zebra-Print Case For My IPod!

I bought this zebra-print IPod case the same time I bought my Ipod the other day. What I love about this case is, it's a combination of two my favorite things, green color and animal print! They already sent me a shipment confirmation for this case, so it'll be coming first. I think it is very cute, don't you think?

I Just Bought An IPod Touch!

So I just bought myself an IPod touch today on Amazon. I don't know if that was the right thing for me to do or not. The minute I clicked the "Place the Order" button I said to my self "Uh oh, why did I just do that?". I am really weird sometimes. I'll be wanting something so bad and when I buy it, I sometimes regret doing it...

I should have slept over it and should have thought about it really good but oh well, there's no turning back now. I just hope that I will have a change of heart the minute my IPod comes in the mail!

Drooling Over This Trench Coat



Here we go again, me fighting the addictive side of me! I can't help but drool over this trench coat. I just want to buy it right now but I just couldn't! I have been wanting to buy a trench coat for quite a while now and this one seems like the perfect one I am looking for! The price is not too bad, it's selling for $39.99 at Century 21 department store on Ebay, price is compare at $160.

Not too bad actually but the question is do I really need it? Of course not! It'll be another money wasted if I buy it and I'm trying so hard to save a little bit in order for me to send to my family in the Philippines, hopefully soon. It's just the addictive side of me that's making it hard for me and I must resist! I'll be just drooling over it I guess!

Selling My New And First Coach Handbag


Yes my title is correct! I have been trying to sell my new and first Coach handbag since the next day it arrived. It's not that I didn't like it, in fact, I really love everything about this handbag. What made me decide to sell it is because, it came to my realization after talking to my sister online the other night, that I shouldn't be doing things like this. I mean I know I can decide for myself if I want to buy myself a new handbags or anything else that my heart desires as long as I pay it with my own money but it is just doesn't feel right to me. 

My family in the Philippines is having so much problems right now and I should be helping them instead of buying expensive handbags that I am not gonna use. I am trying to help them the best I can but I can help them more if I don't keep wasting my money on things that I don't need. So right now, this Coach handbag is listed on ebay and on Pinay Yardsale on Facebook. I just hope that it will sell pretty soon so I can at least save some of the money to send to my family in the Philippines!

Back-To-School Shopping

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Famous Footwear. All opinions are 100% mine.

FF-BiggestVictory-GIF_300x250(1).jpg

School shopping is always fun for me. I love to sho for school supplies with my son, it's like I am going to school with him as well. I am so excited for him going in the first grade and I am sure he is too. He's gonna make more friends this time since their class is gonna be a lot bigger than when he was just in the kindergarten...

Anyway, we are finally done with his school shopping. We got everything that he necessarily needs to have to start school this coming Thursday. From school supplies to new clothes to new shoes. But I am still thinking of buying him more shoes since I found this BOGO + 15% off Famous Footwear Coupon and take note, that if you are a rewards member or if you sign up right now, that 15% off becomes 20% off! Although he already has several pairs, it wouldn't hurt if he'll have few extras. We all know how rough 6-year old kids are. I'm sure those new shoes won't last long. And since Famous Footwear is having this sale, I want to take advantage of it to save a little bit of money!

I love the fact that they have so much style that you can choose from and top name brand shoes too like Nike, Converse, DC and more! Plus they offer this free rewards program where you can earn point for every dollars you in-store and online. You can accumulate points to earn certificate of up to $100 a year! Even when you sign up right you will get a discount. And also before I forget to mention, you can print a coupon and redeem it in-store between August 2-18! Wonderful promotions indeed! Perfect time for the back-to-school shopping!

COACH SIGNATURE STRIPE MULTI PRINT HOBO


There's my new and first Coach Signature Stripe Multi Print Hobo handbag! It arrived earlier today. To be honest, I was a little worried about it's size. When I first saw it online I thought it was too small but then when I looked at the second picture with a mannequin carrying it, it didn't really look that small. So I decided to buy it, hoping that it would be just the perfect size for me..

I am so glad that I decided to buy it, although the design is just kinda plain on this handbag I really like the prints on it. It is very pretty in person. And just for the record, this handbag was originally priced at $260+ and I only paid a little over $93 for it including shipping and tax. The sale was very exclusive that only the invited guests can see it. I am just glad that I was one of the invited ones!

My First Coach Handbag

Picture above is my very first Coach handbag that I purchased the other day using my own money. It kinda felt good that I was able to do it using my hard-earned money but at the same time I was a little hesitant to do it because I do not want to regret spending that kind of money. I mean even if this handbag was on sale, it was still a bit expensive for me but decided to buy it anyway since I really liked the style on this one. There are a few that I would really like to buy but they were out of stock.

Anyway, when I first saw the handbag I thought it was kinda small but then when I read the measurements and saw the second picture which is on the left, I didn't think it was that small anymore. So after debating for a few minutes, I finally decided to buy it. I thought that if in case I wouldn't like it in person I could always sell in online! I have a very good excuse don't I? LOL! Anyway, I couldn't wait to get my first Coach handbag. I think it'll be here early next week! I really hope I would love it in person!

Yeppeeyyy, my new baby has arrived earlier today! I got so excited when I saw the UPS truck pulling up our driveway. I am so happy that I got this handbag because it is just so gorgeous in person! Guess also sent me a perfume in a sample size, so sweet! I couldn't wait to use this handbag but it'll be a while before I'll decide to use it! I'm very excited though!

Love This Newly Bought Zebra-Print Top


I am so glad that I decided to buy this zebra-print top at JcPenney last Sunday. What I love about this top aside from its zebra print is it's style. I love the ruffly-looking bib design on the front. It was on sale for 8 bucks, I thought it was still a little too high but I went ahead and bought it anyway. At first I wasn't gonna do it because I couldn't find size small which is my size but decided to just go ahead and buy it thinking that I would be able to sell it online...

So when I got home, I tried it on and was really surprised that it fit so well. It's a little loose around the belly area but I kinda like it that way. I don't know if the size is wrong or I am bigger than I thought! LOL! Well either way I still love it and I am so happy that I decided to buy it. I don't have any plans whatsoever on selling this anymore! I am keeping it for myself! I actually wore it to church Sunday, paired it with dark skinny jeans and the criss-cross wedge sandals that I bought at JcPenney too! I thought it looked pretty cute, too bad I didn't get to take picture of my whole outfit that day but maybe next time...

Coupons From Victoria's Secret

I was really surprised earlier when I received not one but two coupons from Victoria's Secret. As you can see in the pictures, I got a coupon for a free lace-waist cotton hiphugger underwear worth up to $10.50 and another coupon for a $10 off a purchase! So sweet of VS for sending these coupons! 

I still have until the 27th of this month to redeem these coupons, I am not sure as what to do yet. I don't know if these are worth driving to the mall because I can only redeem them in-store. I do not want these coupons to be wasted and plus I love their hiphugger undies! 

I could either give it to somebody who loves to shop at VS or try to sell them on this yardsale on FB. I'm sure somebody would want it! These are some good coupons right there! I am not gonna let it go to waste for sure!

She's Finally Mine!


I got really frustrated last night when I found out that the Guess handbag pictured above was out of stock! I had the intention to buy two the other night when I saw it on sale on Guess' website, one to keep for myself and one to resell online but I didn't buy it right then because I wanted to wait for a few days because I was timing it's arrival in a certain day next week for some personal reason. 

Anyway, when I found out that it was out of stock, I was really mad at myself. I did not believe that this would be available again tonight. I feel so lucky! Although there is only one left, it's okay I think the last one was meant to be for me! I can't wait for this handbag to come in the mail next week. I just hope it won't come on days that I don't want it to come!

Anyhow, what I love about this handbag aside from it's sale price (I only paid $48.99 for it and it's original price was $128. I think that's some pretty good deals right there!) is it's color and of course it's size! It measures 17 ½” x 3 ½” x 14 ½”. I love roomy handbags where I can put all my junks in it! LOL! Oh gosh, I couldn't wait to touch and use this handbag! I am just loving it!

Guess Watch Interchangeable Straps And Handbag

I want this Guess watch with interchangeable straps so bad! For years, I have been looking for one just like or similar in the picture above. It is on sale right now on their site for $89.99, still very expensive for me! I guess my quest of searching for one will continue on until I find one that I can afford! I really like the color combinations on the straps. Too bad it is still expensive. If they'll knock off about $20 of the price I would not hesitate to buy it right now!

Another thing that I am eying on their website right now is this very cute handbag on sale for $48.98. I am so tempted to buy it because the original price was $128, it's over half the price off and I so love the style of this handbag and of course the color. Anyway, here is the handbag below that I am talking about...

Why are these good deals always happens after I already spent my money on junks! It sucks to just drool over something...I love Guess so much and I don't know for sure if I'm able to let this one go!
