Boohoo Plus Haul + Review

With so many events coming up I realized that I needed to purchase a few party dresses, so I decided to check out boohoo.com. Boohoo has been quite popular for some time so I knew that my chances of finding something would be good and I was right. Luckily I was able to find a few dresses that aren’t too revealing but they’re still good to go out. What makes it even better is the fact that they were having a 50% off sale on the dresses, jumpers and shorts!

What I Got (from L-R)

Plus Immie Slinky Swing Dress in Mink $26

Out of everything I had ordered this was my favorite but sadly this dress is too big and the color is more muted then I would like. Also, I didn’t really care for the material it felt kind of cheap even for twenty-something dollars.

Isabel Shimmer Plunge Swing Dress in Purple $20

I’ll admit I added this at the last minute so I could get the free shipping but I also really liked the color. This dress is a tad bit too big and the deep V is a little too low but I could make it work with the right undergarments. I’ll just need to find a solution before it gets cold.

Shay Caged Open Shoulder Swing Dress $26 – No longer available 😦

Another favorite of mine… well I’ll just say I loved 3/4. I don’t have any issues with this one. It looks so cute on and could be worn to class with the right accessories.

Katie Strappy Neck Skater Dress in Black $35

The pièce de résistance. I had planned on wearing this to the Summer 16 Tour but then I decided to wear something more casual so I’m still trying to find a reason to wear this out. Just waiting on the day to come 😦

Would I purchase again?

Most likely but I need to figure out what sizes work best for me. I ordered most of these things in a us 16 but they were too big for my liking. Hopefully I can catch another sale so I can get a nice amount of things!

If you’ve purchased from there let me know what items you would/wouldn’t recommend!

The Best Makeup for Back to School | Under $20

Getting up and going to class can seem like such a tedious task especially if it’s super early in the morning. From experience I can tell you a few things that will make it better; having a easy morning routine and a cute outfit waiting to get worn. To help with your makeup routine I decided to put together a list of my go-to drugstore items that can create a beautiful full face of makeup. And no you don’t have to wear a full face of makeup everyday, I surely don’t have the time for that LOL.
