Wishing Otherwise

My love/hate relationship with gadgets continues. As I am typing this, I wish I weren't.

Black and White on Gray

Necklace: UO. Tank: Loft. Blazer and pants: H&M. Flats: Tieks.
I go crazy before any exam. Same day I took my second Statistics exam where I blanked out in the last item, I got an email invite to the Honors Program Orientation of my school. Kind of love that my academic performance is finally being recognized because when I was in elementary and high school, all teachers saw were what we all did wrong and only the smart ones were expected to be smart. No I won't be attending the orientation in case you're wondering...or maybe I will?

When Cheap Becomes Cheaper

When I got $25 for eBay for doing on of Influenster’s campaigns, I decided to try and buy clothes from no-name stores I've never ordered from. I mean, what did I have to lose really? It was kind of free money and there are tons and tons and tons of stuff on eBay that I can buy.

There’s this one top that I have been eyeing on from an online retailer based in Korea (I believe) but I thought maybe I can find it cheaper on eBay so I copied the name and pasted it on eBay. Guess what! I found the same item for at least 50% less! The bargain shopper in me could NOT refuse this one anymore.

Online Retailer vs eBay
Here is also another great example, which I accidentally found while mindlessly wasting time online.
Online Retailer vs eBay

If you have not really been to the depths of shopping on eBay, you might ask, what are the pros and cons of buying from eBay?
  • Free shipping for most of the products.
  • Great customer service – their English is not perfect but they always try to make every customer have a positive experience. They even email to see if you’ve received the item.
  • Super cheap!
  • There is always a variety of items to choose from.
  • Buy it now option. ICYMI eBay is not only for auctions anymore.

  • It takes a LONG time to be delivered because it’s from China.

How Do You Like Boyfriend Jeans?

I have been sporting BF jeans since Ron and I started dating because of our random sleepovers and me not ever willing to wear the same bottoms two days in a row even when I washed it. However, I’ve never really gotten my own pair from the women’s section till Urban Outfitters’ sale last weekend where I got the UO boyfriend jeans in the pic above for only $15. *victory dance*

I have been playing dress up and I’ve learned that you can wear pretty much everything with boyfriend jeans—all you need is guts and know that BF jeans also work for wider hips (which I do have)! ;)

Neutrals are my jam. They’re easy to wear, mix and match and are the most practical pieces in anybody’s wardrobe. I’ve been wearing a lot of them lately. They make dressing out of the box more doable for me because they make wearing wacky tribal patterns and clothes with loud silhouettes subtler…if that makes sense.
