New LBD

Hi everyone! Can you believe that Christmas is only one week away??

Today I’ll be under the Wish Family Tent for Make-A-Wish Hawaii’s 4th annual Jingle Rock Run, to style little girls hair and make them feel like princesses for the race.  I’m hoping that the weather cooperates with us because I did see some rain in the forecast. Either way, I’m sure we will have a blast!

The dress I’m wearing today is my most recent purchase and I’m completely obsessed with it. I styled it with some gold kicks here for a cool laid back look. Like it?

Lesson Learned

This tale begins with a dress:

About a year ago I came across the most adorable LBD on Nasty Gal. I had to have it. But there was one problem…it was sold out! Terrible, I know.

I contacted customer support to ask if they would restock  the dress and found out that they sometimes bring back popular items, but I would need to continue checking back. I did continue to check back pretty religiously for the first couple months, and then about 1 to 2 times a month afterward. No luck. 🙁

Now comes my downfall. I found an image of my ever coveted dress online, but the head of the model was cut off in the photo. Curious, I went to the website to see what it was about. The site was called YOYOMELODY.  I knew it was too good to be true and that it was risky, but the price was so inexpensive that I decided just to order it.

The dress I’m wearing below is what I received. Luckily I don’t hate it, but I also don’t love it. And you’ll never guess what! Days after I got this dress in the mail, I discovered that Nasty Gal had brought the dress I wanted back, but it sold out again!! Why me?!

I currently have myself on a wait-list for this LBD and my fingers are crossed that I can have it soon!

Have you ever fallen for a bad knock-off, or any knock-off for that matter? I’d love to hear your story in the comments below!

Laced Up

Good morning dolls! Happy Humpday!

Today I’m sharing one of my favorite new dresses. I got this little lace-up number for my birthday over a month and a half ago, and I’m just getting around to sharing it with you! Sorry for the delay, but not sorry for you, because if you decide to buy one for yourself, it’s now on sale.

In my birthday spirit, I’m also wearing my Alex and Ani Pisces bracelet along with my cupcake bracelet from them that my bestie got me a couple years ago. It’s almost like March never left 😉
