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!

Want items from Karmaloop.com at 20% off? Use code LULU58 at checkout and save big!

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*
