Birthday Purchases by Peacockmeg featuring leather belts
So these are all of the items that I purchased this beautiful birthday month. A few of them (unfortunately, less than I would have liked) I purchased on a trip to Scottsdale earlier in the month with my b-day discount. Not knowing how much moola I would get from the fam, I held back (and the hubby was so kindly finding things to do at the mall while my heart pitter-pattered around the store trying to find the items that I had researched online..... afterall, this was a furniture shopping trip and I had coerced him into taking me to Scottsdale Fashion Square). Anywhooo... home I went with my items and back online I went a few days later. Adding to bag...adding to bag, thinking "I'll edit this later and only get what I REALLY want", well, sure I edited, but not quite as much as I had intended. I LURVE (a 2 year old I know says lurve instead of love and it's stuck with me) the shoes, the bracelet, I NEED some skirts/dresses to break my denim rut and a few nice tops to add to my collection.
Tuesday my items arrived and it was.....magical. Shoes = FABULOUS, Bracelet = fun, Tessera Dress - OMG, I LURVE and will be fabulous this summer in dreaded 100+ heat. Almost everything went well, EXCEPT two items I'm not sure of: The Amhara Skirt and the Voila Top. The skirt is shorter than I had hoped (I hate my legs) and the Voila top is looser than I would like. It's a pretty top (more fall color than spring, but nothing a chunky turquoise necklace can't fix) and will look great under cardi's, but let's face it: Cardi's, unless they're short sleeved and really lightweight, will be a thing of the past in a few short weeks here in AZ. So, I will take some pics, hopefully this afternoon, and have you all weigh in. P.S. I'm REALLY loving this new Eureka Cargo Skirt and think it would be a better length for me, but it's just so darn expensive for a cargo and I've already done enough damage (even though it was b-day $ and some other I had saved up, it still feels naughty!) . Hmmmm, decisions, decisions...
In the meantime, here's me in all of my dorkiness trying on a few of the items the other day. Please bear with the pics, I haven't braved asking my husband to take them for me and I don't have a tripod.....yet
Bathroom/Backyard/Living Room Reviews:
Lunar Cycles Top: This got some bad reviews, but as a pear shape, I lurve it. Sure, the material isn't silky smooth, but mine doesn't feel like sandpaper either. Here I have a basic white tank on underneath (Old Navy maternity top...So, what that I haven't been pregnant in a year...it's long and who cares?) Anyway, it makes me feel like an ethereal angel...okay, well, not the angel part, but I like the "wingy" sleeves. KEEPER
Loving the beach towel in the background. NICE!
Mountain Avens Bracelet: Will go with a lot of things. Comfortable and adjustable. KEEPER
Winners Circle Tee: This is another that hasn't been a favorite among reviewers. However, since I'm a 'Stuck-at-home-WOW-I-get-to-go-to-the-Grocery-Store' kind of person, this is a nice shirt to throw on and look decent. This is an XS, which fit me better than the small that I tried on in the store. I love the color with my eyes and took a crazy-eyed picture to show that. KEEPER
