Stylish Rainboot & Anntaylor Sweater

Hello Everyone:

Happy monday  : )  hope everyong had a great weekend.

I have been looking for a stylish rainboot that is lightweight, and also provide comfort.  Finally, I found the Sperry Top-sider Hingham.  It's a quilted rainboot and it's lightweight.  I love the quilted texture mix with the rubber.  I purchased this rainboot when piperlime has extra 20% off. ( yeah!)
They are so adorable, so fun and comfortable, I will wear them rain or not!

Anntaylor also have extra 40% off sale items in the store this weekend.  I tried on the  Funnel Neck Sweater in malted almond in XS, but the cut for this sweater was huge.  I love the softness of this sweater.   I looked online today and this sweater was still available and at 60% off.  I think i might order this sweater in XXS online.

Did anyone get anything this weekend?

J Crew Honeycomb cable sweater

Hello Everyone:

I had a little time before my class started today and decided to drop by J crew. Oh yeah, I was lucky.
J crew is having extra 50% off  the already reduced sale items.  I spotted the Honeycomb cable sweater (Here)( few of the bloggers been blogging about this sweater for a while) , I decided to give it a try.  Only 2 colors was left in the store, and luckily they still have my size.  I tried on the red, and the light baby blue/green color.  Overall I liked the texture, and feel of the sweater.  I will definitely need to wear something underneath the sweater so I don't feel itchy ( since the sweater has wool in it)  hey, for the final price of $21  for a J crew sweater, I had to buy one.  I ended up getting the baby blue/green color.

I also tried on a lace skirt from J crew ( is on sale for $30), I can't decide to buy or not to buy.  what do u guys think about the lace skirt?

AnnTayLorLoft Sweaters

Anntaylorloft is having extra 60% off.  wow, that's the biggest sale I ever seen for Anntaylorloft.  I went into the store and was hoping to score some items.  There are tons of sweaters on sale, but nothing really catch my eyes.  I tried couple sweaters on, and didn't really like them. 

Here are the items I tried.

I love the cream color, and open front of this cardigan.  It only has XS left ( The one I tried on )  I think it's still a little big for me.

Verdict: Pass

I tried  on LOFT Lurex Cotton Cozy Cable V-Neck Sweater.   Love the purple color, but don't know about the v neck trim, somehow for me, this sweater looks kind of cheap with this type of neck trim.  Plus, XS is too big for me, I had to rolled up the sleeves.

Verdict: Pass

I tried the same sweater again in silver XSP.  The sleeves are perfect in length.  However, I wish the body was a little bit longer. 

Verdict: Pass

The  LOFT Lurex Cotton Cozy Cable V-Neck Sweater ($34.99 plus extra 60% off ) comes in many different colors.  Check it out online (Here)

Did anyone find anything during this mega sale?

Flat Shoe With Elastic

Hello Everyone, hope everyone is having a great week so far.  I am sure every girl has at least one pair of flat shoe.  Doesn't matter how much we love high heels, sometimes our feet need a little rest.  Recently, I bought a pair of black leather flat shoe from Loehmann ( a very good deal) , and it's the first time I bought a flat shoe that doesn't stay flat, and shaped like a U.  I know couple of the big brand name make this type of flat shoes (ex. Tods, Tory Burch)  and I seen many ladies wearing them.  I always wonder are they really comfortable? Does the back of the elastic hurt?  I just can never seems to convince myself to get one.  This pair of new black leather flat shoe changed my view.  It's super soft leather, and has the key element I love on the top ( Bow ^^ )

If anyone is like me and thinking of getting one of those type of flat shoe, couple key points to watch out for:
* try them on ( of course )
* get a half size bigger then u normally wear ( ex. I normally wear size:7, I got my in size: 7.5)  so
   the back of the elastic is not too tied.
* Usually the leather kind will be much softer then the manmade kind.
* try the shoe again and walk around some more at home, before you actually wearing them outside.

Buy or no buy?

Hope everyone is having a great weekend  : )   Usually I tried to go shopping at Marshall once a week.  I liked to see what they'r having in the store, and hope to find some bargains. ( yeah!)  Sometimes I am very lucky and find lots of good deals, sometimes I am just not in good luck.  I enjoyed the moments of finding "treasures" at those discounted store, and also enjoy browsing, trying different clothes.

My finding this week:
Black Fur Collar Cardigan by Vince Camuto marked down $45 (Here) The faux fur is removable. I think the length of the cardigan and the sleeves is a little bit too short for me. But I do like the removable fur collar.

Verdict: didn't buy it.

Khaki Belted Poncho new item in the store $19.00.  Poncho is in this year, and this ponco is light weight, and is similar to a trench coat.  I liked the waist belt so it still give you shapes.

Verdict:  didn't buy it.  already had a trench coat, and a black wool poncho. 

I went home empty handed this week from Marshall, hopefully better luck next time.

Home Made Duvet Cover

Do you have some flat sheets that never get use?  What can you do with them?  How about turning the flat sheet into a duvet cover?!  Recently, I just made a duvet cover for a good friend's toddler.

The flat sheet size: 66" x 94".   She needs a duvet cover size: 36"x50".  I fold the flat sheet in half, and measure the length and width I needed and make marks.  ( remember to leave seam allowances)

1.                                                                                   2.
3.                                                                                  4.

Since the flat sheet is folded in half, one of the side didn't need to sewn together.

5.                                                                               6.


Duvet cover is done.

If you'r making an adult size duvet cover, take 2 flat sheets ( every sheet set will include one flat sheet, which means you will need 2 sheet sets.  The duvet cover will be reversible)

There are many options for the closure of the duvet cover, you can make botton holes, or sewn ribbons and tie them as closure, or hand sewn some snap buttons on.

Thank you for reading  : )
