***Just got this dress today at LOFT for only $9.88***
Sorry for the terrible photos but just wanted to share in case someone wants to check out their local LOFT store! It was the only 00P left and fits really nicely! The picture does not do it justice!
____________________________________________________________LOFT is having a huge sale and most of it is up to 70% off! I normally order most things online but hubby had to go get his new iPhone this weekend so I popped in the LOFT store and found these! Hurry before they are all gone!!
LOFT white jacket- size 00p (on final sale for $29.88)
LOFT Dobby Military Jacket- size 0P- (on final sale for $29.88)
(Here is the tag as a reference in case anyone wants to call the store)
I was so mad I couldn't find a 00p because it would have fit much better. But I had to settle for a 0p because it was too cute and too cheap to pass up! I will still keep looking for other stores to see if I can hunt down a 00P. I tried to have the SA call a few stores but it was so busy, I could have sworn- the stores she called didn't really check! (*sigh*)

Alterations Needed. She is a huge fan and wears a size 23 but I have never been able to track that size down. So I tried on a size 24 at Nordstrom Rack but the waist was huge and the length was way too long. I happened to stumble upon the kids section at Nordstrom Rack and found a pair of Paige Denim in size 12 girls! They looked like they would fit so I thought heck- I'll try it on just for fun. Here they are!
Okay so I wanted to try a different area in the backyard...:)Click below to see my review!

****This giveaway has ended! Thank you to everyone who participated! I will announce the winner soon!****
I was honored when The Little Bra Company aka TLBC got in touch with me to host a giveaway and give one of my readers a beautiful bra! TLBC specializes in petite friendly bras with A and B cups and band sizes 28-36 and soon to have C cups (Fall of 2010). I think this is a GENIUS company who took notice of how many petite women are in need of a perfect fitting bra. I first found out about this company from AlterationsNeeded and ExtraPetite. It's just fantastic that companies are taking notice of our petite community!
Yvonne (retails at $56) smooth push up bra with gorgeous lace detail in their choice of size and color. It comes in Nude/Vanilla and Nude/Mocha. I love smooth cup bras because you can wear it under anything and everything. And the lace detail makes it ultra feminine!

Top: B.P. Nordstrom's Sweater- size XS (similar HERE)
Skirt: Theory "Joanie" Skirt- size 0
Shoes: Aldo Patent Pumps- size 5 (similar HERE)
Necklace: Ann Taylor Single Strand Pearls (still available)
This sweater top is so old but one of my favorites. Love the button sleeves and the fit. I am shocked that it hasn't started pilling up yet!
B.P (Nordstroms brand) has some cute shoes and tops. It's a Junior's brand so the sizing always runs small!

I finally got my LOFT items in the mail the other day and was so excited to rip open my box! Here are my reviews on everything. Up first is the Mini Spots Ruffle Dress:
On ModelFABRIC: The ruffles and the edges were super pretty. The overall material was nice but just didn't do it for me.

Chanel's iconic quilted look with chain link straps have been imitated by many designers and cheapie brands. If you like the "Chanel" look but don't want to fork over thousands of dollars, then there are many other great alternatives. This Marc Jacob's is so similar, I had to do a double take when I saw it online! It has the same quilted appeal and chain link straps. And this time, you are not giving up quality either and for a fraction of the price of the Chanel!

I have been waiting to officially break out my new Chanel purse I got for my b-day from Hubby but it's still in the box. It's so pretty, I am afraid to bring it out into the world:) I was really excited to show everyone so here it is!!!
Ah....it's so pretty!!! I decided to go with the medium flap with gold hardware since I already have a grande shopper tote with silver. I wanted something smaller that wouldn't weigh down my shoulders so much! Just to let everyone know, I literally spent 5+ hours in the Chanel boutique trying to decide on which purse I wanted....I was like a kid in a candy store. The SA probably thought I was insane!

I travel a lot and love to travel in style!!! This 2 piece Luca Vergani pink polka-dotted cosmetic cases is so perfect to travel with and totally cute enough to display on your vanity! Since pink is my favorite color, what better way to celebrate Summer than to give this pink cosmetic case set away to a lucky and lovely reader! I love pink/white polka dots!
CSN Stores was kind enough to sponsor this giveaway! Thank you CSN stores! They have over 200+ stores and I didn't even realize I have bought things from them before!
