4 Outfits from 6 Items

by dietingfashions on November 20, 2011

I have a lot of clothes that I don’t wear because it was pushed to the back of my closet or I could never find anything to go with it. While organizing my closet I found this lovely Ann Taylor Loft Shell from its Spring 2011 collection. It has been breezy, a bit chilly lately in Houston, TX, but the day I found this shell, Houston was having a somewhat humid 75 degree weather. I thought that it was a sign that I needed to see what I can wear with this top.

Top: Ann Taylor Loft Cream Shell sz S
Bottom: AX Armani Exchange Jeggings sz 28
Shoes: Banana Republic Cheetah Ballet Flats sz 7

Very comfortable outfit. I could totally see myself in this outfit when I’m shopping, or picking up the kids from school. I did notice that the shell looks boxy on me, so I decided to add a boyfriend blazer for work.

Blazer: Ann Taylor Boyfriend Blazer sz 6

I wore this outfit to work with the blazer. The blazer is a bit large on me. I bought this blazer as I was losing the baby weight. It fit then but I lost about another 5 lbs since then. So when I button the blazer, it’s loose around the waist. I probably have to get this blazer altered so it’ll be more fitted.

After work, our family planned to go out to eat. A blazer is too business like so I pulled a cardigan for our family night out. By evening, the weather became cooler around mid 60s. The fur collar totally kept me warm around my neck area. The shell isn’t cut too low but around this of the season I tend to get sick so easy that I just want to keep myself covered up.

Added: Ann Taylor Loft Removable Fur Collar Cardigan sz MP

This last outfit was inspired by Lauren Conrad and Fash Boulevard. Her Lauren Conrad outfit was super cute that it made me think how I can work with my Lauren Conrad Pleated Chiffon Skirt that I just got at Kohls.com.

It’s a basic outfit that can be turned into a work appropriate outfit with a blazer or wear it with a cardigan for a causal look. Up the flirty, romantic factor by switching jeans for a trendy skirt. I’m very happy with the looks. I normally don’t wear skirts because I am not comfortable running after my kids in a skirt. But after seeing myself in this really romantic outfit, I think I’ll incorporate more of it in my daily wardrobe choices.

Is there a piece of clothing that you plan on rockin’?

LC Lauren Conrad Kohl’s Purchase

by dietingfashions on October 28, 2011

I purchased from Kohls.com the following:

LC Lauren Conrad Pointelle Sweater – I bought the Doeskin and the Marsala colors. I love sweaters and I love the sweetheart mock neckline.

LC Lauren Conrad Striped Pleated Shorts


LC Lauren Conrad Pleated Chiffon Skirt
– I purchased it in the color Cafe Tint.

LC Lauren Conrad for Kohls Outfit - Marsala Color Pointelle Sweater + Pleated Chiffon Skirt

The skirt is a bit tight even at my usual size 6. The skirt is made to sit on your waist. It is beautiful and flowy. My daughter loved it. She kept lifting the skirt up and feeling the chiffon.

I rather have gotten the Cream colored Pointelle Sweater (like the one Lauren wears) to match better with the skirt. But it is unavailable right now. The sweater is really nice and thin. Very delicate and the thread can easily come apart.

Pleated Stripe Shorts with Pointelle Sweater in Doeskin

I never worn stockings with shorts before but it’s doable. I got the shorts in a size 6. It fits alot better than the skirt did. I do like how this outfit turned out. Very causal but with heels, it looks a lot more glamorous like an outfit for the clubs. Though after standing in heels for the entire day, my feet hurts now.

Do you like the outfits? Which do you prefer?

Ebay Shopping Spree – Late Night Edition

by dietingfashions on October 17, 2011

It is impossible to shop during the day. Bright and early I get up to take my two kids to day care/ early learning school. Then jet to work from 10am – 7pm. Come home to give the girls a bath, prepare their meals, read their bedtime story and tuck them in to bed. By 10 pm, I am EXHAUSTED.

I don’t know if any other moms experience this, but I am constantly awakened during the night. I’m either running to see why my little one is squealing at midnight as she tries to find her pacifier lost in her blankets, or re-tucking my older one after she fell off her toddler bed. But last night, I shook from sleep to realize that I can now SHOP to my heart’s content.

I purchased two things on Ebay:


LC Lauren Conrad Ballet Flats for $14.99 + $ 9 shipping. These were last season, but I have been looking for cute pink ballet flats for a while now.


Zoku Quick Pop Duo Maker + Zoku Tools – $39.99 + $9 shipping
Original price of Zoku Pop Maker is $39.99 + Zoku Tools $19.99 – Saved $10 bucks and Tax.

I cannot wait to receive these items.

LC Lauren Conrad Fall 2011 Collection

by dietingfashions on October 16, 2011

I am adoring LC Lauren Conrad’s collection this Fall 2011. It is hip yet with a ladylike flare. I think this collection focused more on a relax style that could be dressed up for special occasions.

I purchased from Kohls.com the following:

LC Lauren Conrad Pointelle Sweater – I bought the Doeskin and the Marsala colors. I love sweaters and I love the sweetheart mock neckline.

LC Lauren Conrad Striped Pleated Shorts


LC Lauren Conrad Pleated Chiffon Skirt
– I purchased it in the color Cafe Tint.

LC Lauren Conrad Fall 2011 Collection

I also used a 20% code I had found – Kohls Friends & Family: 20% OFF with code OCTFF20. exp 10-16-11. Plus I used the link from my Discover Card shops to receive 5% cash back from the purchase. Kohls is also running a special for purchase over $75 to get Free Shipping.

I haven’t received this shipment yet. I will see if I’m keeping any. But I’m hoping everything looks as good as it does online.
