OOTD: Styling a Granny Piece

What She Wore/ OOTD

Hey guys! Guess who’s back? First let me start off by apologizing for my LONG hiatus. I had a lot going on in my life. But enough with the excuses, let me jump right into the post. 

So I love thrifting! I’ve purchased so many different items during the summer that I can’t wait to show you guys through different post. The item that I am featuring is a Jersey Sleep Shirt orginally from Sears. The brand is Tropical Escape. I paid .50 for it from my local Salvation Army.

  
So I decided to style it with my vintage Denim Lee Jacket, my boyfriend’s Aztec five panel hat from Forever 21 and my Aztec print slip on’s from Rugged Warehouse by the brand Twisted. 

I chose this shirt because of the size, fit and style. I feel like the fact that it resembles a baseball jersey. I can’t wait to use this in my next segment. 

   
   
Deets: 

Jersey Sleep Shirt: Tropical Escape, Salvation Army, .50cents

Shoes: Twisted, Rugged Warehouse, 2.99

Denim Jacket: Lee, Goodwill, 1.00

Hat: Forever 21, boyfriend’s 
So guys let me know if you want me to recreate this ootd for you guys through polyvore!!!!

Yesterday was my birthday!!! I turned 29 years old! I work a full time job along side being a blogger and a home based business owner. I was really drained and I wasn’t going to do anything for my birthday. I finally realized that I was born on the best holiday ever, so the least I could do was partake in some of the festivities. 

I wanted to rock something that I haven’t worn In any ootd but still be comfortable. 

So what did you guys do for Cinco De Mayo? Not only did I eat some wonderful Mexican dishes, I went shopping! I have a birthday haul coming soon!!!!

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!

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
