Ann Taylor Kamela Wedges – size 7.5

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!

Reviews » DVF Lucy Crepe Jumpsuit

by dietingfashion on November 19, 2013

dvf6

I fell in love with the Diane Von Furstenberg Lucy Printed Jumpsuit in Wing Dance Mini New Apricot. It was love at first sight. Unfortunately it was sold out on shopbop.com. I just had to have it and I shelled out $460 to get it from Net-A-Porter.com (double the price than on shopbop.com).

Sorry for the phone camera pictures. I did not find this jumpsuit appealing enough to break out the DSLR. I ordered a size 10 according to the size chart online. However when I tried it on, there were so many problems with the jumpsuit. It made me wish I had listen to the reviews around the internet.

The size 10 was based on a 31″ waist which is accurate. Fits me to true to size. But that’s the only place it fit me. The inseam was too long. I was already wearing 5″ heels and the pant legs were still dragging on the floor.

Because of the Kimono sleeves style, there was no shoulder definition. The boat neckline was too large on my frame and it puddled downwards. I understand it supposed create a waterfall effect but what happened was the two button closures on the back of the neck were heavier than the material. The neckline kept pooling backwards causing the front neckline to become a mock turtleneck (and it bit into the skin of my neck) while the back drooped too low.

And the worst part of the jumpsuit was the zipper part with hook and eye closure plus its 3 tiny snap on buttons along the side of the jumpsuit. My fingers are pretty slim and I usually have no trouble with tiny closure, but it took me about 5 minutes to snap and hook these closures.

The print is gorgeous and the material is a satin silk like crepe that is so comfortable. I so wished this was a keeper. DVF makes beautiful clothing that’s feminine and easy to wear. I was very disappointed this jumpsuit did not work out. It was swiftly returned and Net-A-Porter.com was quick to refund in full. I guess I should be happy about that. It did make me feel better that I did not have to waste time or money in the end.

Have you purchased something with high hopes and it disappointed you? Comment below and let me know!

Post Partum » Week 36 – The Jumpsuit

by dietingfashion on November 2, 2013

bcbgjumpsuit3

When I saw this BCBGMaxAzria peplum jumpsuit during the ShopBop Fall Sale, I knew I had to have it. My only concern was the sizing. I purchased a Medium (the largest size they had at the time) and I crossed my fingers hoping it would fit.

I was very surprised at the fit.

bcbgjumpsuit1

I still have to get this jumpsuit altered especially in the pant legs (too roomy) and alter in the top at the sides (my post pregnancy boobs are gone – so sad).

bcbgjumpsuit2

I think this jumpsuit is a great formal and professional outfit in one. The fit is perfect, the material is wrinkle free, and minimal alterations. I would love to wear this to a business meeting or even to date night (when will that ever happen?).

Outfit: BCBGMaxAzria Peplum Jumpsuit (here)
Shoes: Mui Mui Criss Cross Patent Leather Platform Heels sz 7.5 (Ebay)
Bag: Chanel Classic Quilted Medium Caviar
Jewelry: Banana Republic Necklace and Jewelmint Bracelet

Keep an eye out for my next post on another jumpsuit. Unfortunately, it did not look as good and I had such high expectations for it.

Post Partum » Week 35 featuring the Cropped Cape

by dietingfashion on October 26, 2013

juicycape1

Totally loving this weather! (Except when it makes my kids sick.) It’s a cool day at 64 degrees. The sun is out, no more rain and out comes my turtlenecks and sweaters. My kind of weather.

juicycape2

I decided to reach for my Juicy Couture Cropped Cape today. I really like the high cut sides that makes the cape flare out. I forgot to take a picture of the lining which is a beautiful print of (I believe) Cherry Blossoms.

juicycape3

I have been exhausted lately. So exhausted I have not exercised or stayed dedicated on my Paleo diet. I try my best to stay grain free. Probably one meal a day, I’ll have something with grains. It’s just so easy to reach for something with grains like rice, pasta or bread.

juicycape4

Exercising at home or going to the gym has been nonexistent too. My gym membership expired so that’s been keeping me at home. That’s no longer the case since I just found out I could renew online. Awesome!

My gym membership expired and my kids have been sick for the last 3 weeks. Wow. Am I sleep deprived or what? I felt like I was a zombie. I barely ate until I felt like I was coming down with something. When your kids are sick, you forget to take care of yourself. Luckily, I live near so many restaurants that I’m able to pick up something to boost my energy and keep my immune system revving.

Unfortunately, I stopped my Paleo diet. I need to start it up again. If you follow me on Instagram (@dietingfashions), I have been taking pics of my grain free meals. I find that eating “clean” (no grains or beans) really helped me lose the weight so far.

I still have 12 more pounds. Hopefully I can lose the final 12 pounds by Christmas.

I had purchased this dress on Loft.com back in August. It was a bit tight but the extra 2 pounds I lost since then helped me fit in this dress. The dress is very demure but sassy with the stripes. I really like the pleated skirt because it helps to hide the tummy. The nipped in waistline defines my post partum waist instead of making me feel like a blob. The fabric is a stretchy material that is lined. I didn’t have to alter this dress. But I do feel the neckline to the armpits are a bit too tight on me. It’s not too uncomfortable. The sleeveless part of the dress is cut a bit too far back so my bra straps tend to give a peep show.

Overall I really like the dress and I think it’s going to be one of my favorites for a long time.
