Cruise/Back to School Shopping Haul

IMG_0420
This post is long over due… My 7-day cruise is steadily approaching (September! Whoohoo!), so I’ve been trying to buy things that I could wear for it. Not to mention school is starting back up in August, so I also took this as an opportunity to do a little back-to-school shopping. I went to thrift stores and department stores.

I’m not going to go too much into detail like I usually do with posts like these… Also, a lot of wrinkled clothes so brace yourself lol.
But anyway, on with it!

Here are the things I got from the Thrift Store:

(I noticed in the photos a lot of the dresses/tops look short. Which is my fault, weird angle I took the photos in.)

I don’t like this dress lol. I thought I would, but uh.. no. I’m going to cut it in half. Turn the top into a crop top and the bottom into a skirt.

(again, sorry for weird photo angle) Here are the things I got from the Department stores (Belk, Rue 21, Marshall’s, etc.):

I like this dress a lot, it looked ugly to me hung up on the hanger, but I decided to give it a chance and it’s actually reallllyyy cute on!

I’m thinking of selling this dress, maybe on eBay or something. It’s a size Medium, I couldn’t find a small, but I thought I could get away with this… I was wrong lol. It’s too big :/

Adventure Time Nail Art

Hey everyone, I just finished my nails! I did an Adventure Time theme, and while it was really fun to do… It wasn’t easy. So, while its not the most perfect, I’m still pretty proud of what I’ve done! :P Aside from some nail polishes, I only used acrylic paint and a brush.

(And I know, I need to clean up my right hand, but I’m giving it time to dry first!! :P)

(Lucky) Fashion Find! Poka Dot Dress

I had this really cute blue and white polka dot dress that I found at a thrift store a few years ago, it was seriously one of my most favorite dresses!

It’s a heart shaped dress with pleats in all the right places and white buttons going down the front.

Unfortunately a red article of clothing found it’s way into my wash while I was doing laundry, turning the white dots on the dress a pinkish colour. I was devastated. -_-

Oh, but that wasn’t the only thing that ruined it…. On top of that, bleach later found it’s way onto my beautiful dress!

Now that just pissed me off.

I was never going to be able to wear this dress again!!

Until one day… I went to the thrift store. This store didn’t have anything especially great, not to mention that for old second hand clothing a lot of it was overpriced.. I wasn’t expecting to find anything great.

But low and behold……

Price: $3.99
Size: 4
Brand: MODA INTL

I found it! The exact same dress!!! Aaah, I was beyond happy. It really put me in a good mood for the rest of the week hahahaha.

I still have the ruined dress, take a look.

(same brand/dress, size 6)

I was going to throw it out, but now I’m wondering if I can bleach the whole dress (100% Rayon fabric) and turn it white…?

Hmmm…
