@Home Fitting Room


This is series I like to call the At-home fitting room.  The mr. hates shopping so I do most of mine online to spare him the agony.  I usually only like to shop from stores that offer free shipping unless I come across something that I really really like.  Usually, I purchase online and then return in-store.  It's just a system that works for me.  This first blush colored skirt is from Forever21.  I believe it was from their Love21 line. This skirt is like a combination of boho and girly.  It's a little on the thin side so I'd suggest a slip underneath.  Unfortunately, it's currently sold out online but maybe you can find it in-store!  Here's something similar  


This one is from ASOS (from the River Island brand).  I have been looking for a circle skirt.  The first one I purchased as a polka dotted one from Forever21.  It was beautiful and the quality was great! It's too bad it ran a little large.  This one is a good fit.  Unfortunately, I think it's out of stock atm.  I apologize.  I purchased this skirt 2 weeks ago but didn't get around to posting.  In case they restock it, you can find it here



Now this last dress is still available! I had also been looking for a fitted lace dress.  I really wanted a different color (I think it was mint green) but they were all out of my size.  The one in dusty pink was also out of my size. darn.  However, I'm kinda glad I went with the navy.  I think I'll get more use out of this color.  I could probably wear it in other seasons as well (ahh the perks of living in California).  It's not quite as fitted as some other lace dresses perhaps because they run a little large for us petite gals.  I'd still recommend it.  It looks 10x better in person.  You can find it here

I hope you found this post helpful!  I'd love to see your latest finds as well!  Maybe I'll see something that I MUST have. We can enable each other ;)

  1. That first skirt is gorge! You gotta really look at F21, but they've got some hidden gems sometimes - that's why I prefer shopping their site versus going to their stores because I can't ever seem to find anything when I am in-store!

  5. I love the first skirt, I saw that at my F21 as well, and then remembered that I had a similar skirt at home so I didn't get it, plus the return policy at F21 is exchange or store credit!

    The vintage crocodile bag in today's post was purchased from an ebay retailer that solely deals with vintage exotic skin handbags :)

  10. I love the lace skirt and lace dress, both look so cute on you. I think it's good that you ended up with the navy because you could probably wear it more than the other colors. :)

    I'd love for us to follow each other and keep in touch!
