Noracora Blue Floral Print Dress

For today's post I'm wearing this beautiful blue floral print dress from Noracora.  I'm wearing a size medium and the fit is very good.  The dress zips up the back and the fabric is thin but not see-through.  It is somewhat silky and it kind of reminds me of lining fabric. 

 The dress also has pockets which I think is a cool touch. I know there are a lot of women that love a dress with pockets, if that's you then this is a great choice. 

I love the blue and pink flowers that are a part of the print on this dress. It is the perfect sprinf and summer dress!  The shade of blue in the background it so pretty, too!

I will be reviewing several other Noracora dresses in the upcoming week.  I had never heard of the Noracora brand before but I am very pleased with their products. They have lots of other clothing options, not only dresses, as well as accessories.

LovelyWholesale Red and Black Floral Maxi Dress

For today's post, I am wearing this red and black floral maxi dress from Lovelywholesale.
I am wearing a size medium.  The fit is perfect, other than the length.  I am 5'2", and I took about 5 or 6 inches off the bottom of this dress and hemmed it.  I am also still wearing it with heels, so keep that in mind if you are my height or any shorter.

The fabric is stretchy, and you just pull the dress on, from top or bottom.  The sleeves have elastic, and that could be a little looser for comfort.  

I decided to add red accessories to complete the look for this outfit. I think the dress looks great on it's own, as well.  I think adding a black or red belt would also be a nice touch.  I love dresses like this.  They are so easy to wear and look nice, with little effort. 
At only $15.49, this dress is a great deal! It also comes in a sunflower print, which is just as pretty as this print!

Pink Tropical Print Blouse

I love the lace skirt I am wearing because it goes with so much in my wardrobe.  I have not worn it as much lately, though, because I think it is especially perfect for spring.  Lately, it's been so hot that pretty much anything I put on feels sticky, and miserable.

It is going to feel like 111 degrees this Friday here in Virginia, but things will be cooling down next week.  I am very much looking forward to that!

My implant is still bothering me.  I keep biting my cheek, so I finally called to make an appointment to see if something can be done to fix it.  It is going to be a while until I get seen, though.  
I just hope I ever get this tooth thing over with!

Green Nautical Print Dress

I like these nautical print dresses.  This is one of about 6 or 7 print dresses I bought, they were all the same halter type that I purchased from Falles while still living in California.  I think they were all only about $2.99 each.  

 I like shopping at Falles but unfortunately all of their stores in Virginia closed this year. 

I thought the background of this photo is so pretty with all of the flowers.  It's always fun to take a photo in a place like this when given the opportunity.





AW Bridal Review

Today I'm doing an AW bridal review. You may remember that I reviewed one of their dresses before. I was really happy with the quality, the fit, and the fabric. 

AW bridal really does its best to make their site a one-stop shop for everything bridal. Their new arrival section has dresses starting at $49.99.  You can choose by color; you can choose by style; they also have so many options for bridesmaids dresses, as well as wedding dresses! Then the accessories with everything - sashes, petticoats, tiaras, wedding gloves... Pretty much anything you can think of - even ties for the grooms!  Then there are personalized gifts; everything from cake servers and bottle openers, to robes and lingerie.  

This beautiful robe here is perfect for any occasion, but I can especially see wearing this for a beautiful spring or summer wedding.  If you love the romantic color and girly look of beautiful florals, this robe is definitely a wonderful choice. It also comes in a navy blue and a light blue, but the pink is definitely, by far, my favorite.   The sizes also come in sizes Extra Small to Extra Extra Large. 
https://www.awbridal.co.uk/awyp180u6wcp-uk/

There are so many lovely choices at AW Bridal® UK that you could spend hours looking at everything.  And I almost forgot to mention they also have a d├ęcor section with everything from tablecloths to napkin rings and cake toppers. You name it; AW bridal most likely has it.  

Be sure to check out Allure Bridals® to get all kinds of fabulous wedding inspiration. Their photos are stunning, and, even though I'm not planning my wedding, I still enjoyed looking at this site.

I also spent quite a while looking at Etsy dresses.   Yet another great site to find all kinds of dress inspiration.   I prefer the classic look of lace and ruffles.  If it looks like something evocative of romantic, Victorian times, then it is most likely a dress for me.

Also, be sure to check out AW jackets for bridal.   This first faux fur cloak is so amazing!   I can't believe the price, only $40.  If you're going to have a winter wedding, I cannot imagine a prettier thing to wear.  This really does make me think of a beautiful "Winter Wonderland" snow princess.   I have always had a thing for cloaks, capes, and opera capes.

https://www.awbridal.com/patricia-faux-fur-cloak-color-ivory-awpj160u006cp-en/

Next up, we have the Serena Applique Lace Jacket.  I love the detail at the bottom of the sleeves.  If you know me, you know that I am such a fan of lace that this would actually be a great choice for me. I like things that are reminiscent of Spain as well.  And this totally reminds me of a flamenco dancer.  At $20, I think the price is really amazing, too.

 https://www.awbridal.com/serena-applique-lace-jacket-color-ivory-awpj130u047cp-en/
Last but not leas, we have the Calliope Photo Fur Wrap.  This one is a classic for sure! It comes in sizes Small through Large, and it's at an unbelievable price - only $12!  This is a really great option to just keep a little bit of the winter chill away, but not ruin the look of your beautiful gown.

Dresswel Floral Midi Dress

I love the print of this floral midi dress from Dresswel.  It reminds me of birds of paradise!  I am wearing a size small, and the fit is pretty much perfect.  The shoulder straps are adjustable, and the dress buttons  down the front.  There is also elastic at the back for ensure the perfect fit.  I wore this dress today when it was very hot and humid, and I found it to be very light and comfortable.

  I was happy to discover that the fabric was not see-through, as is often the case with lighter color fabrics.

 Dresswel has lots of other really cute options to if you're in the market for cute summer dresses at really great prices.  This dress is only $16.99 and comes in sizes small through extra large.

Tropical Print Mini Dress

It's been a very rough week. Monday I went to the dentist and it was supposed to be my last appointment. Unfortunately the sanding and fitting of the crown took almost 3 hours and the crown was screwed and unscrewed into my mouth probably 30 times. It took so long that they were not able to actually finish it that day so I had to come back Wednesday and that meant getting up at 5:00 a.m. again and traveling about 80 miles. 

Now the tooth is in but I just still feels too big and it is also causing me to bite my cheek. My cheek is finally feeling better now but the tooth just still does not feel right; it feels like it's pressing against my right cheek. If it doesn't not finally feel better I'm probably going to have to go back yet again and have the crown sanded down. I almost wish I had never started the process of getting an implant. This December will make 2 years since I started.

It's because of all this I have been missing several days of posting.  Hopefully I will recover from it all this weekend.

Shein Summer Swinsuit Ideas

For today's post, I am sharing three summer swimsuit ideas from Shein. All of these suits are $15 or less!

Use coupon code :Q3libertad to receive 15% off any purchase until September 30th!

 This blue and white floral print suit one is such a pretty print!  It reminds me of willow ware.  I have always liked the white and blue color combination, and I was happy to see that it in on trend this year.

I am wearing a size medium in this suit, and the fit is very good.  If I could change one thing, it would be to make the shoulder/sleeves a little more elastic.   

I love that this Shein suit can be worn as a bodysuit, as well.  This would look to pretty with a skirt worn over it.  That also makes this a great suit option for travel, since it performs double-duty.  That is always something I look for and am happy to find in any clothing item.

The fringe on this next swimsuit if just so over-the-top, I love it!  I have never seen fringe this long on anything else that I know of.   I am wearing a size medium in this suit, as well.  The fit it good.  The bikini bottoms are easily adjusted to fit smaller, or larger.   The padding in the cups is thick, and stiffer than some.  I like the effect okay, though.

I really love the print and tassels on this last high waist swimsuit.  It is jut so pretty!  I am wearing, once again, a size medium.  The fit it pretty good, though the waist of the bottoms is just a tad loose.  My waist is 26 inches, by the way.

The top has adjustable straps, and ties in the back.  I like suits that tie in the back because it makes it so much easier to get the perfect, comfortable fit.

Southwest Design Top

The southwest print top I am wearing is one I bought from a thrift store in Califronia.  I think this is the first time I have ever worn it!  I liked the open "fringe" detail that runs down each side.  I thought it went well with the brown leggings I bought a few years ago from Walmart.

Nautical Top and Shorts

I think I bought this cute anchor top several years ago but this is the first time I've worn it.  The top is a size large but I think it fit me well anyway. I thought the top went really well with my white shorts.  I particularly love the white shorts because of the buttons that are on them. 

I have been a fan of the nautical look for a while now. The white leather sandals are a pair I bought for around $5 from low more it.  The pearl earrings I'm wearing were purchased on sale from Walmart. They came with a matching necklace.

Gray, Pink and Black Dress

The dress I am wearing is one I bought in the Los Angeles fashion district several years ago for just about $2.  It may look like a top and a black skirt but it's actually all one piece and a dress.  This is the 1st time I had worn it in years the last time was when we went to dinner at the RainForest cafe.  

The pink beaded necklace I'm wearing is one I got for $1 from Lowemart.  

The pale pink heels are ones I purchase from Goodwill last year. They go with so many things and I have gotten so much use out of them.  I thought everything went very well with my handbag.
My bag is new from Popjulia.

Dress AB

For today's post, I am sharing some of my favorite dress choices from a website called http://www.dressab.com/ .  There were so many beautiful dresses that I had a hard time narrowing it down to just these few.  Dressab is one of those sites where you could spend countless hours looking through all of the pretty choices they have.  Now is still a great time to do some summer shopping!  I don't know about you, but I always buy for the season I am in, right up until the weather changes, and, whenever I see something I adore, I buy it, without regard to what season it's for.

 Use code BLOG5 for $5 Off when you order!

First off, I will start with a few beautiful design bodycon dresses.

This first one is, of course, a favorite of mine because it is plaid.  For those of you that have been following me for a while now, you many remember that my husband loves plaid, and since I met him, it has become a bigger part of my wardrobe.  Vaughan still likes to pick out new plaid pieces for me when he sees something that catches his eye.   I like this dress in particular because of all the metal details that add interest on what could otherwise be a simple dress. I also like wearing belts, so it is a nice touch that this one has one included.

Street Plaid Sashes Stitching Irregular Bodycon Dress

This new dress is the opposite  of my first choice.  The lace and color are beautiful, and formal.  I could see wearing this to lots of nice events in the spring and summer.  I have always loved a good, neutral lace.  The shape and fit of this one in particular is stunning!

Elegant One Shoulder Lace 3/4 Sleeve Sexy Bodycon Dress

Next up, let us get to the the really glamorous items - the women party dresses!

I really like the shade of blue in this first dress.  I have always liked the lighter blue, dreamy shade like the one in this dress.    I love how interesting this dress is, with the buttons going in different directions, and the asymmetrical hem, and the lacing on the shoulder!  One thing, for sure, that you can say about this dress, is that it is unique and interesting!  There is just so much going on, and so much to look at!  I love pieces like this.   The dress is very different, yet still classy and beautiful because of the lovely shade of blue.

Chic Asymmetric Stripe Lacing Falbala Skater Dress 

The last dress is such a lovely shade of pink.  This shade of pink is, basically, the pink version of the blue shade above.  It has also been a favorite of mine for years now.  It is just such a romantic look!  I love all the details on the fabric, and the mermaid hem.  I have always loved skirts and dresses with the mermaid hem, too.

Mint Green Dress

I hope everyone had a great weekend. Last night Vaughan and I went to see fireworks in the Meherrin, Virginia with our family. It really was such a spectacular show. 

Before we went out we did a lot of work organizing our pantry, tiki bar and kitchen area yesterday.  We are still not done with the organizing project. Hoprfully it will all be done by the end of next week.

The mint green button-down dress I'm wearing is one that I found for about 49 cents from Ross. There was no damage to the dress or anything like that. I can't believe they actually sell clothing for that little.

 I decided to wear the floral hat that my mother gave me and the platform heels that I purchased from good willThe tie scarf thing that I'm wearing around my neck was $1 on sale from Walmart last year. I thought this outfit was the perfect Spring look.

Cactus Print Blouse

I decided to go with a Western theme for today's outfit of the day. This pink and green cactus print blouse is an item that I purchased from Amazon. I still have a fondness for all things Southwestern, especially the Seguaro cactus. When I see a print like this, it reminds me of my travels to the American Southwest.

I decided to wear the blouse with this denim skirt that I have had for years. The skirt is a thrift store item, as is the blue leather belt that I am wearing. Love that the belt is also a Southwestern themed belt. 

The shoes are a pair that I bought from a thrift store a year or so ago; they are very comfortable to wear, and they go with a lot of different things because of their neutral color. 

I decided to do something a little different with my hair today, too. I braided it and then pinned it up on each side.  

For jewelry, I just decided to wear a pair of simple beaded earrings.

Popjulia Chain Strap Hand Bag

The thing I love most about this handbag from Popjulia is the pink trim!  It is such a pretty shade!
The size is also great for when I want to carry a little more.  I thought the bag when great with my neutral outfit of the day, and I am looking forward to seeing what else I can style it with in the future.

I love how stiff and structured the bag is, and I am very happy with the quality.  The inside is  very bright, beautiful red!  I love the unexpected color.  The outside colors are perfect for all year around, as well.  I think I will be getting a lot of use out of this bag!  There is a large zippered pocket on the inside, and also the top of the bag has a zipper across the middle opening.

The bag also comes in three others color combinations!

Popjulia has lot more than just hand bags, so be sure to check them out and use 38%off Code : PJSNS38 when you order!
