In about 2 weeks I am going to be heading to Maui, Hawaii for a wedding! I am so very excited! So, to prepare I decided I definitely need some awesome Summer dresses because let's face it, it's ALWAYS Summer there! At least in my opinion. :)

I had searched Google for a website to buy some dresses from that wasn't the usual sites I usually purchase from like Forever21, Cotton On, Charlotte Russe, or any of the boutiques I shop at.

So, I came across a website called 1015store.com.
Once you check it out, you're going to think just what I thought...this is WAY too good to be true! 

Just about EVERY single thing on the site is $15.00. Which is crazy to me because the stuff they have is SO cute! I thought it looked pretty sketchy so I googled around and tried to find some reviews on the site to see if anyone had any bad thoughts about it and turns out, I didn't find a whole lot. 

I decided to order one dress to try it out and I have to say I am completely pleased!

This is the dress I bought...

I thought this would be perfect for Hawaii and would stand out!
The only negative I would have to say is that the lining of the dress was SUPER short. I got a medium and it fit me really well in the top thank god. It has adjustable straps so I was able to tighten them. I am a 34DD and so it's always hit or miss. 

I went to our local fabric store and tried to find the same lime green knit lining and couldn't find anything close so I bought an off white that look awesome underneath of it. I'm going to take it to get altered so I can actually wear it without anything showing! :)

Also, the package came VERY quickly. About 4 days or so. It was awesome! 
Needless to say, I will be buying more dresses from this site!

Here are a couple of my other favorite items...

Check the site out! You won't be sorry!

So apparently I have a problem...I CAN NOT stop shopping Sales right now.
I am currently about to go to Hawaii so finding sundresses in September is kind of easy since all the Summer items are REALLY on sale right now.

I have literally been going crazy finding the best stuff! So, I wanna share a few of the awesome finds I just recently picked up!

First off..this skirt...so excited about it and don't even know what to pair it with just yet. But, I know it'll translate perfectly into fall.

Skirt: Forever21: Black Lace Skirt
Love this girl's blog BTW. She's gorgeous and has the best outfits!

This skirt is so so so cute...I haven't gotten it in yet, but I can not wait!
I paid $8.39 for this skirt!
It is on sale at Forever21 and they are doing an extra 30% off their already marked stuff. So, that brought it from $11.99 to $8.39!

I also got this from that sale...

I thought this would be great to pair with some really bright accessories some pink wedges I have! To brighten the whole look up! This dress was $15.99 and with the sale came out to $11.19. 

So go and check them out right now! Can't beat additional sales on sales! They have a TON of gorgeous items right now!

Is It Fall Yet?

I am so ready for it to feel like Fall weather here in Texas!
I am ready to bust out my boots and sweaters and all the cute stuff I only get to wear a couple times a year due to the HOT weather here! :)

I've made a couple of Fall purchases lately...like these I just got from Target!

I have been trying to decide if I like these for the longest time...and I have found a few pairs I've wanted but the price tag was too much for me to pay for something I wasn't sure about.

So, I was on Target's page the other day looking for some dresses and I found these that were on sale for $20! These are going to be great for fall to pair with skinny jeans and a flowy top. 
I think if you are like me and you are unsure if you like them, then the $20 price point would be perfect to pay!

From reading the reviews on them EVERYONE on there LOVES these and says how comfortable they are and well made. So, can't beat that! They also have them in an assortment of colors!


I am also planning on ordering these from one of my favorite places to order shoes online: GOJANE.COM

They have the best deals on shoes and they are always made well. Right now they are running a promotion for 20% off! Use code SEPT20R

I had to retire my favorite boots last year they were similar to this but had the cutest bows on the sides. I've had them for years and they were practically falling apart...so I'm thinking this will be a good brown boot substitute! 

Check out some of the other styles they have too! They do free shipping for orders over $60!


OOTD -- Outfit of the Day post. Since, I pride myself on finding great stuff for great prices just about anywhere...so I'll start sharing some outfits!

Extra long tank : Cotton ON
Sweater : Old Navy
Leggings : Charlotte Russe
Boots : Target
Bracelet : Juicy Couture
Ring : Forever 21
Earrings : Rock and Republic - Kohl's 

Just to comment on a couple things I'm wearing, I am obsessed with the extra long tanks from Cotton ON. I have them in black and grey maybe 2 of each. They are awesome to layer with and to wear with just about anything. I believe they were 2/$20.

The sweater I bought this last November at Old Navy, it was on sale, I got it for $20.

The leggings from Charlotte Russe I have probably like 4 pairs. I think they are the best. Comfortable and affordable. 2/$12.

The boots from Target I've had for about 2 years, but, I have seen this style of boot at just about any shoe store. Go Jane has a lot of this style boot.

The bracelet from Juicy Couture, I posted about on a previous post, super cheap with their Winter sale that is still going on right now. Juicy Couture.

The ring is an old purchase from Forever 21 and the earrings from Kohl's were a gift but all their Rock and Republic jewelry is on sale right now.
