Style » Texture Weave Peplum + Stretch Pants

by dietingfashion on October 15, 2014

weavepeplum

Zara Weave Printed Top – size Small
Retails: $49.90
J. Crew Factory Gigi Stretch Pants – size 6
$44.00
Ann Taylor Kamela Wedges – size 7.5
old (similar here)
This has been my go to outfit for the past 2 months.
I love this outfit. The top is so cute and flirty with the peplum. It has a fun texture that is casual but can be dressed up professional for work. I first got my usual Zara size Medium but it was too baggy. I would suggest sizing down for this top. Other pluses are the print and material – does not wrinkle! Easy to put on quickly and walk out the door. The pants are super stretchy. They feel like leggings only thicker fabric. J. Crew pants are always higher quality. The Gigi Pants have snagged, ripped, or bent out of shape. It holds up pretty well and can be machine washable.

Discount tip: Retail price is $44, but I got it for $30! My sister in law purchased it using her College ID. If you don’t have a College ID, you can use your college email to get the discount. If you don’t have one, borrow one from someone. I believe it’s an additional 15% off.

Any discount tips for any other stores? Comment below!

by dietingfashion on September 30, 2014

The ones you keep – you will be charged a discounted rate off it’s retail price. Use this link to get 1 FREE Month of RocksBox.

infinityring

Gorjana Infinity II Ring in Gold
Retail Price: $40
Member Price: $32
Beautiful rings, very dainty but feels flimsy. I do believe Gorjana jewelry are usually not quite as sturdy as some other jewelry brands out there. I would love to constantly wear this piece but I believe it would not hold up very well with my day to day.
lolaspike

Urban Gem Lola Spiked Earrings
Retail Price: $30
Member Price: $24
Though I love edgy styles of clothing, I have to be careful about edgy jewelry. I’m a mom so spikes are pretty much out. My kids even though they are girls, they love to climb on me and wrestle – especially my 19 month old. Spikes would be a cause to visit the ER. Maybe later on when the kids are older.
mini-nicole

Melinda Maria Mini Nicole Necklace
Retail Price: $98
Member Price: $78
 This is my favorite piece this month. I love the dual facets. Very good quality necklace, unfortunately, the hook is very cheap. It’s just a hook closure, not even a claw. In order to hook and unhook, I had to bend the hook. I do think it will not hold up to every day use. For the price, it’s not worth it if it’s not going to last.

What are some pieces you received this month? Please share!

Review » RocksBox Jewelry Subscription

by dietingfashion on September 8, 2014

IMG_5135.JPG

RocksBox is a monthly subscription service that selects 3 pieces of jewelry based on your style profile. For $19/month, you received not 1 but 3 pieces of jewelry from brands like House of Harlow 1960 , Gorjana, Margaret Elizabeth, CC Skye, etc.

By signing up here, you will get 1 Month FREE. Yes, FREE for 1 Month. No code needed.

Wear the jewels for as long as you want, and return them to get 3 new pieces of jewelry. Now let’s say, you absolutely love, LOVE, love the pendant you received. Go to Rocksbox.com, log into your account and purchase it at a discounted price. Really ideal right?

If you are like me, I change my mind so very often. Certain jewelry pieces might be worn so many times in a span of a month, but then get hidden below another piece as the seasons/moods change.

What I received:

IMG_5136.JPG Margaret Elizabeth Teardrop Bangle in Blue Chalcedony

Retails at $88

RockBox price: $70

IMG_5137.JPGUrban Gem Cindy Studs in Light Pink

Retails: $25

RockBox price: $20

IMG_5139.JPGHouse of Harlow 1960 Sunburst Pendant Necklace in White

Retails: $58

RocksBox price: $46

My favorite piece is the House of Harlow 1960 pendant. It is gorgeous. Unfortunately, at 2 inches in diameter, it is large for my frame. No keepers this month, but the idea of RockBox is to experiment. The search is endless for that statement piece that pulls your outfit together and with a RockBox personal stylist on your side, it is inevitable you will find it.

My Review: It has potential. Rocksbox is considered a rental program to me. You are renting for the time being. If you like it, great – you can purchase it for a discounted price. If you don’t like it, return it.

The good thing is if you pay in advance $180/ year, membership is essentially $15 a month to wear jewelry pieces you don’t have to own.

The cons: You can receive merchandise that has been handled. If you look closely at the House of Harlow 1960 pendant, there are small poke marks in the leather.

Have you experienced RockBox? Thoughts?

My first experience shopping at H&M was in New York at its flagship store near Times Square. I remember perusing the store being completely overwhelmed. I purchased a striped white blazer that I frequently wore through my college years. There was no H&M in the south at the time. Thank goodness this has changed and now there’s 2 H&M stores in Houston and online shopping (my preferred method of shopping).

Shopping » Zara Autumn 2014 Picks

by dietingfashion on August 26, 2014

I did not pick up anything during Zara’s bi-annual sale. I’m not a sale person – meaning I don’t go crazy and wait for a sale to happen. (Doesn’t mean, I don’t try and wait for a sale. I tend to buy and then the very next week there’s a sale.)

I was able to pick up some things in the Autumn 2014 collection that just began to pop up online. Some items caught my eye in a big way that I bit the bullet and way overindulged my shopping addiction. Unfortunately some items will be returned due to just bad sizing.

What I Kept
zara-blazer-zips

149.00 USD
This blazer is a polyester blend jacket with double zips as pockets on both sides. Unfortunately the pockets are fake. Otherwise, I purchased a Medium and it fit very well. It’s got padded shoulders that gives me a lift and I love the draped collar. The draped collar creates a relaxed yet polished look that I really like.

zara-pleated

39.90 USD
The hunter green color is absolutely beautiful for fall. The pleated details of the hem and bell sleeves are so feminine. The only problem I had with this top is the button loop closure in the back. It is tiny and so hard to button. But it’s an easy fix – just add a bigger/loose button loop. I didn’t even have a problem that this is a crop top. I purchased a Medium and it fit really well. The Medium is very true to size for me. It is a Zara slim fit at the torso.

zara-slipons

59.90 USD
I began to love these loafers/moccasins type shoes recently after over-wearing my heels for months and months. My feet were in bad shape. (Feet cramping up when wearing or not wearing heels). I pulled out my Shoemint rose gold loafers but the soles are a little rough on my arch. I fell in love with these Zara slip ons and they are so comfortable. The toe box is a little snug and my big toe indents through the top. Otherwise very roomy and comfy.

zara-weave-1

49.90 USD
This is a textured animal print that is lightweight with a flirty peplum hem. It is so cute. The back is a 4 button closure which I don’t even open. The neck opening is large enough to slip over your head. I first purchased a Medium – my usual size. But Medium was hanging on me. Small fit a lot better. So purchase a size down. Check out some more pics of this Weave Animal Print Top below.

zara-weave-2

zara-weave-3

What I Did NOT Keep

zara-boot-2

159.00 USD
I really wanted to love these almost knee high boots. They are super tight! I am a 7.5 and the heels fit but getting my feet into the boot was damn fucking hard. There is hardly a stretch to the shaft. The heel is supposed to be 3.35″ as stated online but to me it was 3.5″ high, shaft is 13″ high but the opening is only 4″ width (with no to very little stretch). Such a shame because it’s a beautiful boot. I personally do like the contrast of the leather heel and the faux leather shaft.

zara-silk-1

79.90 USD
Beautiful romantic top and it’s SILK! But it has an odd seam down the middle of the shirt. Go to Zara.com and zoom into the image. Zara tries to filter the seam out, but the zoomed photo you can see it. Another problem, the under side of the shirt is a half inch seam allowance on both sides. Therefore, the sheerness of the shirt makes the one inch of fabric exposed. BOO to Zara to filter the seam/fabric from the online images! I purchased a Medium but it is too large. The tulip/dolphin hem is awful and unflattering. Order a size down if you’re interested. Very awkward blouse.
Any picks or skips that you would like to share?
