Catch of The Month | June ?

I have ordered this two skirts way back, but they were delivered in June… I can call this “Getting ready for the summer”, even though it is raining outside and I am sitting here with long sleeves on.

Let’s just go with it…

πŸ™‚

Ok, I will do a little bit of reviewing this skirts, since you really don’t know whatcha buying until it gets here.
I am positively surprised with the short one with heart pattern, because I have won it on an auction and I think it was 5 dollars, something close. I had no idea (because it is not specified in the description) that the skirt has shorts under layer. You can imagine my face when I put it on for the first time haha… πŸ˜€

For the green one, I knew I wanted something green, on the scale to emerald shade and I got my eye on this one. Costed about 10 dollars – pretty much the most expensive thing I have bought on e-Bay in 4 years I am there. It is good, but I did a lot of calculating and decided that I will order n L size they had. I am an UK M or medium size, but having always been S or small it is hard for me to make that mental shift. I love my M, but Asian measures are extra small. The shirt fits me excellent, but I wanted something more loose… I think I will make some remakes. πŸ™‚

You can see my obsession with emerald shade of green this summer even on the nail-polish. I love it. It was about 2 dollars.

You can even see on Polyvore my current mind-set… Where is the purple hair? Coming soon… πŸ™‚

Catch of the month: October

Catch of the month: October

So…. Yes, I AM aware that it is mid-November πŸ˜€ I think I’m gonna have to make myself reminders for this category… πŸ˜‰

I wanted to say something about it also, because I noticed a lot of similar stuff going on on internet (blogs, YouTube, FB etc.). I want to explain why I have this category. It is not a review of nothing, which fashion bloggers do with cosmetics for example, and it is most certainly NOT me bragging – “oh, look what I bought last month” πŸ˜• Coz that’s just plain stupid for me.

I do it because I want to show everyone that you CAN get well dressed and make yourself happy in shopping even if you have a very limited budget. I am very proud in finding sales and good bargains, that is something I am proud of…not ashamed. So, I want my readers to be proud to. It’s awesome if you have all the money you need to buy everything you want, but most likely that is far from truth. So, don’t you think you should be ashamed, not for one minute. Or be sad because you can’t buy Prada or Gucci or Whatever-brand. Names are just names, put YOUR name on your clothes and jewelry through your unique style! And show it off like it’s Dolce Gabbana because the names have the power we give them.

You’re a star. OWN IT! πŸ™‚

A little about October items – sister bought me this skirt and palestinian scarf, both in textile house for 10 kunas (about 2 $) because she knows I love palestinian scarfs and this kind of skirts. And the lightning necklace I bought on e-bay for 1.05$. I’m gonna explain my obsession with lightnings maybe another post. Or maybe I already did, in Do I like fall…at all.

Review of vacuum storage bag – as promised.

So… You know those vacuum bags that are sold practically everywhere? I bought one, as I said at one of the recent posts. I was very curious and had some summer clothes I want to store to make more room in my closet. And my bag has arrived this week. And my bag is a piece of crap. For what it supposed to be.Β Actually it is a piece of plastic bag, nothing more. “Yaaay”. I’m so glad I bought only one to try this concept… πŸ˜•

I don’t know is it the problem in the way I bought it, or the seller, or they all suck? I bought it on e-bay among hundreds of bags just like this one, so do they all suck? If you have bought one please tell me your experience.

Mine looks great – except it looks different thanΒ the one they put on the picture:

But when I put my clothes inside and vacuum out the air, it only takes few minutes to be exactly like it was before. I could literally watch the air coming back in. From where? – I haven’t got the slightest idea because everything is firmly sealed. So, yeah, you could say I’m disappointed.

Well, had to try. πŸ˜€
