Mini Haul Part 2: Classic Clothing, Illict Rags Vintage, Rax Clothing and more!!

Dare or Spare, Haul, parent family fashion, Reviews

Hey guys! How’s everyone’s Saturday going? I hope that it’s going great. It’s going to be a lazy day for me today!

Anyways I wanted to stop by with part two of the mini haul! I know it has been a while since I wrote part one, but I had to wait on my items to come from the other sellers. Thanks to the snow storm, some of the items took a while to get here.

The first item is from a fellow Etsy seller, Rax Clothing! I saw this item while searching for a vintage sweatshirt. It’s a slogan from the Breck shampoo line.

The total cost of the sweatshirt was 25.00. I do recommend this seller! The shipping was fast and inexpensive. The packaging was nice and I loved my mini coloring postcard! Order vintage items here! http://www.etsy.com/shop/raxclothing

The next item was purchased from a bigcartel seller that is no stranger when it comes to LuLuChris58, IllicitRags Vintage! I did a feature on this boutique for Christmas gift ideas. Since I couldn’t convince anyone to purchase this vintage beauties for me as a gift, I purchased them myself! They are the Vintage Reebok Joggers!

Although they come off as a powder blue on the screen, they are teal. ( which was mentioned in the description). I only paid 16.00 for these! *I do need some styling ideas if you guys would love to share any.* I do recommend the seller. She has loads of hip vintage items from many different eras. Her packaging was simply and neat. I loved her thank you note that she included. The shipping is reasonably priced and I received my item in a good time frame. Check out her items here! http://illicitragvintage.bigcartel.com

The next item is from Classic clothing. Classic Clothing is a UK based clothing brand found on Big Cartel and Asos Marketplace. I decided to use the stock photo for two reasons. I forgot to take pictures in the top and of the packaging. The top was 23.00 in USD. If you are in the UK, the price will be a lot lower. I would recommend this company but be aware that if you are in the US, the shipping will take a while. It was worth the wait. Next time I wear the top, I will take pictures in it! Promise! Shop with Classic Clothing here! http://www.justclassic.bigcartel.com

My last item is a vintage inspired item from the Nicki Minaj Collection from Kmart! I purchased these online from Kmart and got them at a great deal. I only paid 10.00 for them and that included shipping! I will say that these jeans are made for the curvier girl. I ordered a 4 and when I received them they had a perfect fit. When I wore them to my nephew's party, they felt a little loose. Either way, I still like them. Nicki has a lot of cute and affordable pieces. From cute link necklaces to hip galaxy bombers, I'm here for it! My only advice is if your curves are hidden like mine order a size down.

What She Wore: To a Kid’s Day Party

Files of Style, Mommy's Corner, parent family fashion, What she wore, What She Wore/ OOTD

Hey guys! How is everyone? Yesterday my nephew celebrated his 2nd birthday at Chuckie Cheese. I figured that I could show you guys what I wore to his little day party!

20140223-152737.jpg

The breakdown:
Jacket: Local Thrift Store 6.00
Sweatshirt: Vintage shop Raxclothing( mini haul coming soon) 30.00
High Waisted Acid Wash Distressed Jeans: Kmart.com The Nicki Minaj Collection ( mini haul coming soon) 10.00
Turban: Scarf from Goodwill .50
Combat Boots: Kmart Bongo Collection. I got them three years ago so I think that they are no longer sold there. 35.00
Gold Chain: My grandmama gave me that chain, no really she did. I think she got it from Target. It doubles as a headband.

I figured that if I had to go to a party wear I’m chasing kids and low key trying  being a big kid myself, I had to be comfortable. I enjoyed myself and despite the fact that my nephew was freaked out by Chuckie, he had loads of fun too! What are some of your kid day party outfit ideas? I would love to hear from you guys!

Mini Haul Karmaloop, Rainbow, Body Central and Other Stuff

Broke Girls Diaries, Files of Style, Haul, Mommy's Corner

Hey guys! How’s everyone doing today? Who’s enjoying being snowed in? I figured this would be the perfect time to pump out a few blog post!

I’ve been shopping! I’ve been shopping! *drunk in debt* I wanted to stop by with a few items for you guys! This will be part one. Since Mother Nature will not let me be great, I am having to wait on more packages, lolx.

I would like styling tips and ideas from you guys as well! So let’s jump right into it!

I have two items from Karmaloop.com! I used my rep points to purchase two black crop tops for 6.12! That was the price for both items together, including shipping!

20140212-155030.jpg

20140212-155047.jpg

The top crop top has faux leather on the shoulders. The crop top on the bottom overlaps in the back!

I was needing some simple cropped tops so I figured those two items would do!

Next I have a Varsity Jacket from BodyCentral.com! I saw on ebates.com that there was a sale on all outerwear so I had to head over!

20140212-155603.jpg

This jacket was marked down to 10.00! With shipping and tax the item was 25.00!

Next item that I purchased was from Rainbow.com. Every time I think of this store I think of what one of my favorite youtubers calls a “Get it Girl Store”. Anyways, I came across an email stating that Rainbow was offering free shipping on items over 13.00! I had been eyeing a skirt that I wanted so I figured this would be the perfect time to grab the skirt!

20140212-163226.jpg

I love this skirt! I love the stained glass artwork style print. My grandad found the skirt offensive. How do you guys feel about it? Only con was that my skirt was coming unraveled at the seams but it wasn’t anything too bad. The cost of the skirt was 13.00 so I wasn’t too upset.

The next item was purchased at a store called Hammerick’s. I’m not sure if any states besides North and South Carolina has this store but this item should be available online.

20140212-163741.jpg

This shirt was on sale for 12.99. It’s sheer material and has the cutest little cats printed on it. My two favorite details are the gold collar tips and the opening in back! Also during that trip, I purchased a faux denim shirt for 7.99 but I’ve worn it already. It’s in my dirty clothes pile, lolx.

The next item was purchased from an EBay seller! I have been on the hunt for this for a while.

20140212-164457.jpg

A black faux leather skater skirt! I am so frugal at times so when I saw this item on google shopper for under 6.00 I knew I had to have it. I order it from an overseas seller, so the wait was long. I was fine with it. My only downside was that the skirt came wrinkled and just like the Rainbow skirt, the thread was coming unraveled. It’s not too bad for 6.00. I can make it work for me!

My next two items were from a quick trip to the thrift store in my town. I went in to purchase a few tees for work and I ended up finding these two pieces!

20140212-165812.jpg

20140212-165832.jpg

The camo jacket was 6.00 and the cardigan was 1.50. I think I may do a DIY project on the camo jacket. I know that I will distress it a bit. Let me know if you guys think I should add my DIY touch to the jacket and if I should do a post on it!

My last item was a gift from my boyfriend. He purchased it from GoJane.com.

20140212-170700.jpg

I’m not sure of the price that he paid for these but I’m loving these faux leather joggers!

That’s it for the mini haul! I hope that you guys enjoyed it! I want to know what was your favorite item and how would you style each piece! Also, I want to see what you guys are hauling! If you blog or make YouTube videos leave your link below or on any of my social media sites. Part two coming soon!

*Disclosure: Everything was purchased with my own money unless stated other wise! All opinions are my honest ones nor was I paid or compensated for this haul/review. Picture of Stained Glass Skirt belongs to Rainbow.com*

20131203-212617.jpg

 

Open wide because it’s time to quench the thirst ladies and gents! It’s Benny Biceps Thirsty Tuesday! Yes! You know that LuLu not only loves the kids but we love Tyler Lepley and them biceps!  How many of you guys were thanking God for blessing us with that eye icecream at the table last Thursday. I know that I was,lolx. Sorry to my boyfriend, lolx. You still my boo.

20131203-212553.jpg

So after looking at Tyler’s recent Instagram photo, I wondered what a date would be like with him? Would he cook for a lady? Would he cut cartwheels with somebody? Would he fold clothes with somebody? Ok, I admit I just want somebody to fold my clothes. Anyways I had a lot of thoughts going through my mind and I figured why not ask you guys if you had the chance to get a date with Ty how would it go?  I want all of my thirsties to use their imagination and tell me how your dream date would be with Mr. Lepley. I know you guys already think of this so why not share it with the world. I just ask to please keep it PG. Nobody wants to hear about how you would get Tyler to lick  mustard between your nasty toes or sip  your nasty bath water. Cmon, he doesn’t even look like a feet guy.

I can’t wait to hear the responses! Also can somebody please come fold my clothes? I will pay you, in gratitude points!

How to purchase.

You have up to three options for purchase. If you live in the upstate South Carolina area and would like to deliver and/ or pick up your item I will take cash. You have to actually appear in physical form, lolx. My other two options are google wallet and etsy!

Google Wallet

If you want an invoice on an item that you see on Instagram please email me at luluchris58@gmail.com. Please include in the subject line which item or items that you are wishing to purchase along with the word Invoice. You have 24 hours to pay for your items or they will be restocked.

Etsy

I do not list all of my items on Etsy because of fees. I have two special listings for the items that you see on Instagram but they are not listed on Etsy. The listings are “The Closet” and “Social Media Items“. If you look at the pictures on these listings then you will see that they are from the Instagram page. If an item is no longer available, I will remove the picture from Instagram. If you have an item that is priced more than the two listings, then I will list the item on Etsy for you as a reserved item. In the title your name will be included. This will make your price of your item increase by 1.20.

Any questions feel free to email me at luluchris58@gmail.com
