Birthday Haul - Fashion

Hello dear readers,

I've been quite busy in the past few days. My birthday was actually yesterday but I did get a head start on the party, hehehe. I wasn't really planning on shopping but my friend asked me if I wanted to go down to Chicago last weekend to celebrate our birthdays. I was definitely down for that. My co-worker suggested that I wear a dress so I decided to go shop for one. With that said, I did some last minute shopping and here are the things I bought for myself.


  • Blue/Green strapless dress, $22.00. This is the dress I wore when we went the club in Chicago. It looks very flattering on me and wasn't too short. I paired this dress with a pair of sky high green pumps. I wanted to find a white blazer to go with the dress but I didn't have any luck so I ended up wearing a white cardigan instead. I wished I had taken pictures but then again, we've been rushed and too busy dancing to be taking pictures. After a few minutes on the dance floor, I was a hot mess and I really didn't want to be caught on camera looking like I just came out of a sauna, lol.
  • Sequin leopard print skirt, $9.00. I guess this will be part of one of my future girls night out. I like that it's flashy and edgy. I usually prefer to wear pants but I'm going to incorporate more dresses and skirts for parties.

  • Lace cami, $7.00. I think it goes so perfectly with the silver skirt.
  • Silver satin skirt, $12.00. I love how flattering it looks on my figure. It also comes with a belt.

From Maurices
  • Peach satin blouse with lacy back, $19.20.
  • Light pink cami with ivory lace, $14.98.
  • Half sleeve teal top with lacy back, $9.95.

I spotted this gorgeous floral shirt at JcPenney for $25.00. I normally don't go for this style shirt since one side of my arm and shoulder is completely exposed but because the print was so pretty, I had to make an exception.

From Wet Seal
  • I picked up this black short sleeve top, 15.00. I might pair this with the sequin leopard dress next time I go out. I haven't tried if they would go nicely together but by picturing it in my head, I think it might work.
  • Floral print cami, $10.00. I fell in love with the watercolor floral print. It's too cute.
  • Lace mint top, $15.00. I don't have a color like this in my wardrobe. I'm a sucker for lace because I think it's sexy and feminine.

I received a $5.00 coupon from DSW for my birthday and figured I needed to see if I can make some use out of it. Honestly, I am a bit disappointed that they only sent me a $5.00 coupon. They made so much money out of me already. I shop there quite often. Anyways, there wasn't anything I really wanted as bad as these Michael Kors sandal heels. I normally rather wear a size 8 but they didn't have it so I tried a 7 1/2 and fortunately, it still fit. I would have been more comfortable with an 8 but half a size smaller was still doable. I just love how classy and sophisticated these shoes look. I paid roughly $115.00 for these.

I received a $10.00 birthday coupon from Victoria's Secret and I went and bought 5 pairs of undies. They were on sale 5 for $26.00. I didn't include pictures of them since I feel kinda weird posting pictures of my panties, lol.

Hope you enjoyed my haul. Thoughts?
Stay tuned for more birthday posts.
