Frugal Fashion Find: Affordable & Stylish Sunglasses

Frugal Fashion Find: Affordable & Stylish Sunglasses | #SunglassWarehouse #frugalfind #fashion #sunglasses
~Thank you to Sunglass Warehouse for providing product for review. As always, opinions are still 100% my own.~

Just in time for our end of summer vacation last week, I discovered an awesome frugal fashion find – Sunglass Warehouse. You may already know that I love sunglasses and always have a pair (or two) in my purse, plus a handful lying around the house. Well, the obsession has just gotten stronger.

Thanks to Sunglass Warehouse, I now have a pair for just about every mood. And since sunglasses never go out of style and are always in season (because the sun isn’t going anywhere), they’re good to have around.

When I’ve been in the car for 5 hours, all I want are some oversized sunglasses to hide how tired my eyes are.

The options at Sunglass Warehouse are affordable too. For $10+ you can get a stylish pair of sunglasses, and so long as you care for them properly, they’ll last for as long as you need them.

You would think that for just $10-$15, you get what you pay for, but this frugal find will surprise you. I’ll be honest, I wasn’t expecting much when I ordered my sunglasses. I ordered about six pairs by the way, two of which were for my boyfriend.

When they arrived, we found that some of them have spring hinges on the sides so that they fit well. I find this is a great feature when you have kids too, because if they get a hold of the sunglasses, chances are they’ll bend the sides outward. With the spring hinges that actually allow the sunglasses to do this, it provides a less likely chance your child will break them.

And not just that, but I also found that I could see objects and colors more clearly and vividly with some of the sunglasses on. Without wearing them, the sunlight just dulled the colors of cars and trees, but wearing the sunglasses with polarized lenses put things into better perspective.

I don’t wear prescription glasses, so it’s not a matter of needing clarity, but for those sunglasses that featured the polarized lenses, it was a nice bonus for my frugal find. Now I feel like I’ve been deprived of vivid vision my whole life. Polarized lenses really do offer a completely different view.

With literally hundreds of sunglasses to choose from, and various shapes and color combos offered, there’s no doubt in my mind you’ll find more than one pair you love and at a price you’ll love even more!  I already told you I got six pairs and there are still more I want! Shipping is also free with U.S. orders of $25+.

Which pair of sunglasses do you like the best?

Pretty in Polka Dots

Pretty in Polka Dots | #SocietyPlus #polkadots #skirt #plussizefashion #fashion #womensfashion

~Thank you to Society+ for providing a skirt for review. This post contains affiliate links, in which I will receive a small commission for your purchase. As always, opinions are still 100% my own.~

As a young adult, I wasn’t much into wearing skirts and dresses. And to be honest, even now I’m still a jeans and tank top kind of girl, but I do have an array of dresses and skirts in my wardrobe that I like to pull out from time to time.

My skirt and dress collection is growing much more rapidly now than anything else in my closet. I feel feminine and pretty when wearing a skirt or dress, and what woman doesn’t want to feel those things?

Pretty in Polka Dots | #SocietyPlus #polkadots #skirt #plussizefashion #fashion #womensfashion

Yesterday was no different as I pranced around in my new Makena Polka Dot Chiffon Skirt from Society+. I have to admit after I put my outfit together, I felt a bit like a 1950’s housewife, with the flowy skirt placed higher on my waist and the bulky yellow necklace, but I had a “pretty in polka dots” vibe going on and nothing was going to ruin it.

My son had soccer practice yesterday and typically I wear my usual yoga pants and tank top of some sort, or in other words, my mom-wear. I needed a change, even if just for the day, and as we walked from the car to the pier where his practice takes place, I noticed I was getting many more stares than I ever noticed before. I realized I wasn’t blending in anymore, but rather, I was standing out and in a good way.

Pretty in Polka Dots | #SocietyPlus #polkadots #skirt #plussizefashion #fashion #womensfashion

To all of my plus size ladies who are reading this – you do not have to hide. Get out of those dark, black clothes and let yourself shine. Whether you stand out with polka dots or want to flaunt your curves in a bright pink skirt, or even a tutu (all of which Society+ has), don’t be afraid to be you. This just so happens to be one of the things I love about Society+.

Society+ offers the young, fun, and vibrant clothing women want, but that plus size women can never find in a regular store. And not only that, but the company is devoted to diversity, in size and everything else.

Pretty in Polka Dots | #SocietyPlus #polkadots #skirt #plussizefashion #fashion #womensfashion

When you shop Society+ you will only find real plus size women, modeling real plus size clothes. Not an average woman modeling the same piece that’s supposed to work on a plus size woman. Well, I don’t know about you, but I’m not average. I am above average and have always strived to be in everything I do. There’s absolutely nothing wrong with that!

As for this Makena Polka Dot Chiffon Skirt, I love that I can wrangle my kids and look good doing it. The little one made a run for it across the grass at the pier, but there are no steps at the end. In fear that she’d run clear off the edge onto the walkway, I had to chase her and snatch her up before she had that chance. As you can see both kids thought it was pretty funny. There’s something fun about wearing a flowy, non-restricting, and twirl-worthy skirt to play with your kids.

Pretty in Polka Dots | #SocietyPlus #polkadots #skirt #plussizefashion #fashion #womensfashion

The only thing I dislike about the skirt is that it’s a little large, but that’s no fault of Society+. I am a size 18/20 in literally every other brand and I measured myself before ordering. But after getting my new skirt I think it’s safe to say I can comfortably size down to a 14/16 and that’s what I should have done with this skirt. It has an elastic waistband, which is comfortable in itself, but as I walked around it inched its way down a little bit and I found myself adjusting it quite often.

Other than that, my new Makena Polka Dot Chiffon Dress is a great addition to my wardrobe and I can’t wait to style it a different way!

One Tribe Apparel Is Conscious Thai Boho Fashion for Your Soul

Are you a free spirit? One who lives a life of love, passion, and adventure? A true hippie soul? Or maybe you aspire to be? One Tribe Apparel is the tribe for you! #OneTribeApparel #consciousfashion #ElephantNaturePark #Thailand #Bohemian #womensfashion #fashion #harempantsforwomen #sponsored

Are you a free spirit? One who lives a life of love, passion, and adventure? A true hippie soul? Or maybe you aspire to be? Let me introduce you to the tribe you need to know about – One Tribe Apparel.

One Tribe Apparel is a fashion brand that began when two travelers fell in love with Thailand’s Bohemian styles and decided to bring those styles to the west in a socially conscious way (I’ll get to that in a minute).

Are you a free spirit? One who lives a life of love, passion, and adventure? A true hippie soul? Or maybe you aspire to be? One Tribe Apparel is the tribe for you! #OneTribeApparel #consciousfashion #ElephantNaturePark #Thailand #Bohemian #womensfashion #fashion #harempantsforwomen #sponsored

The first thing you’ll notice is the bright, vibrant, and intricate designs that One Tribe Apparel offers. The harem pants for women are absolutely stunning and are great for travel, yoga, lounging around, and more. With seven unique designs and 50+ beautiful prints, you’re sure to find the perfect combo to fit your soul.

One Tribe Apparel was created to bring bohemian apparel from around the world back to the west and to capture the serendipitous magic that happens when travelers meet as friends and part ways as family.

One Tribe Apparel goes beyond harem pants too, with Aladdin pants, shorts, leggings, crochet and kimono tops, boho handbags, and yoga bags and straps. To show it all off, One Tribe Apparel has created a first of its kind, International Crowdsourced Lookbook, featuring photos of real One Tribe community members modeling their apparel. The Lookbook uses visual storytelling to showcase One Tribe Apparel’s unique styles across six continents and 16 countries. It’s a definite must-see!

Remember I mentioned One Tribe Apparel is socially conscious? All products are sourced and made in Thailand by local artisans who get paid fair wages and have good working conditions. On top of that, for every product purchased, One Tribe Apparel donates to the Elephant Nature Park in Chang Mai, Thailand. The Elephant Nature Park rescues and cares for endangered animals, allowing them to roam freely in a safe environment.

What’s not to love about One Tribe Apparel? Inspired by Thailand’s Bohemian style, encompassing the free spirit of travel and culture, and a worldwide love for conscious fashion, One Tribe Apparel is perfect for a life of love and adventure. Are you ready?

I’ve heard that some schools in the mid-west have already started their new school year. Sounds crazy, right? Classes don’t begin here until September, but that hasn’t stopped us from gearing up for the first day, by shopping all the back to school sales.

Save on Uniforms with Gymboree's Back to School Collection #backtoschool #BTS #Gymboree #schooluniforms

One of my favorite places to get new threads for my kids is Gymboree. The options are stylish and my favorite part, affordable. My son is starting kindergarten this year and his school requires uniforms. So for us, shopping for t-shirts and all the fun clothes isn’t part of our back to school routine.

But we do have to get him khaki colored shorts and pants. Those are the only items we have free will as far as where to purchase them. All of this tops, sweaters, and even jackets have to bought through the school, with the school’s name on them.

Of course, I immediately turned to Gymboree for the khaki shorts and pants. And not just those, but basics like socks too.

Right now everything in the Back to School Collection is 25% off through July 31st! On top of that, if you have any Gym Bucks to spend, you can redeem them by July 30th on top of the discount.

Wigs Are an Easy Way to Change up Your Hairstyle #BlackHairspray

Wigs Are an Easy Way to Change up Your Hairstyle #BlackHairspray

Let’s talk about hair changes for a minute. I have always been one to sit on hair changes for weeks, months, and sometimes even years. I can easily come up with a fun new do, but actually taking the plunge and making it happen, that’s another story. Are you the same way?

With short human hair wigs from Black Hairspray, changing your hairstyle is as easy as ever. Black Hairspray offers a large array of fun and beautiful short human hair wigs. Whether you’re looking for something curly, wavy, or straight. Black, auburn, blonde, or a fun color like purple (I’ve had purple hair before). Black Hairspray has got it all.

Wigs Are an Easy Way to Change up Your Hairstyle #BlackHairspray

My favorite thing about wigs is that you don’t have to alter your own hair when you want a change. Wigs allow the freedom to go from one color today to another color tomorrow, or from straight hair today to wavy hair tomorrow, and without all the time consuming and chemical-filled processes of making such changes.

Since the wigs at Black Hairspray are 100% human hair you’re getting nothing but the best in quality, along with a truly natural look, and at amazingly affordable prices. What’s not to love?

Not sure you’re the right customer for Black Hairspray? Guess again! Black Hairspray has clients ranging from professional stylists, to working moms, students and beyond. So why not take a look and choose your next hairstyle?

Have you ever tried a wig?

Keep Color in Focus & Stay Fashionable this Summer with Ottica #SummerFun

Since the weather has warmed up, we’ve been getting outdoors and enjoying the sunshine so much more. And whether we’re playing at the park, going for a walk, or enjoying city views, I always have sunglasses on.

Can I just tell you how much I love sunglasses? I wear them year-round. Suns out? Sunglasses on! Snow on the ground? Sunglasses on! Leaves starting to fall off the trees? Sunglasses on! Not only do they protect my eyes and keep color in focus, but they are one of my favorite accessories. I feel more put together (even if I’m really not) when I wear sunglasses.

There’s a good chance my sunglasses obsession is getting out of control, but I don’t see myself stopping any time soon. In fact, I recently got the opportunity to check out Ottica.com and get a new designer pair!

Keep Color in Focus & Stay Fashionable this Summer with Ottica #SummerFun #sunglasses #fashion #Ottica

Right from the start I knew I’d be able to find an amazing new pair of sunglasses. Ottica offers sunglasses for both men and women, and has a variety of brands, sizes, styles, colors and materials. Brands include Ray-Ban, Versace, Coach, Michael Kors, Tory Burch, Carolina Lemke and Burberry, and there are 113 pairs of women’s sunglasses to choose from, alone!

How did I find my perfect pair? Well, it was hard mostly because I wanted to get every single pair, but I eventually narrowed it down by trying them on. You’re probably like, trying them on? How did you try on sunglasses if you’re ordering online?

It just so happens that Ottica has a feature where I can upload a photo of myself and virtually try on different frames. How cool is that?! Here are a couple of pairs I “tried on.”

Keep Color in Focus & Stay Fashionable this Summer with Ottica #SummerFun #sunglasses #fashion #Ottica

I’m thinking about going back and ordering these!

 

Once I found my perfect pair, which was a pair of blue tortoise Michael Kors sunglasses, I simply added them to my cart and checked out. I first tried paying my balance via PayPal, but it wouldn’t process for some reason. After switching to a credit card payment, my order went through just fine, though.

Keep Color in Focus & Stay Fashionable this Summer with Ottica #SummerFun #sunglasses #fashion #Ottica
Just look at these beauties! Each pair ordered comes with its own carrying case and lenses cleaning wipe, too!

If you require a prescription, Ottica has you covered too. It’s still the same process, with a few extra added steps. I personally don’t need glasses, so I didn’t have to go through those few extra steps, but it looks pretty easy to do.

Pick your frames, choose what type of lenses you need, upload your prescription and voila! And Ottica not only offers sunglasses, but you can also get your everyday prescription glasses too.

After making my purchase, I received email updates every step of the way. From a purchase confirmation, to notification of when my sunglasses were sent to production, to notification of when the production process was complete, I was received updates about it all. And before I knew it, my sunglasses had arrived in the mail!

Now all that’s left is for me to enjoy my new sunglasses and explore the concrete jungle this summer!

Keep Color in Focus & Stay Fashionable this Summer with Ottica #SummerFun #sunglasses #fashion #Ottica

Spring is in full swing and summer will officially be here in just a few short weeks, so if you need a new pair of sunglasses, head over to Ottica.com. I promise you’ll find the perfect pair to protect your eyes this summer and still stay fashionable.

Shipping is free, returns are free and if you require prescription lenses, you can get 50% off your first pair by joining the Ottica Club (just click the brown banner at the top of the site that says “Get 50% off all lenses.”)

Meet the Other Shibajuku Girls

Miki was introduced in Series 2 of the Shibajuku girls, but Koe, Yoko, Suki and Shizuka were introduced in Series 1. This time around, though, the girls have got new outfits to fit their unique personalities and qualities.

Koe – An animal lover with electric blue hair, her love for furry friends is written all over her outfits and accessories. Koe is always rocking some kind of animal print and wants to own a zoo one day. How fun?!

Yoko – With a love for the color black and accessories suited for a rockstar, Yoko loves to look as edgy as she can. She is a superstar guitar player who dreams of one day becoming a writer. In her spare time she loves watching spooky movies and especially those with spiders. Eeeeek!

Suki – Suki is what I call a girly girl. With hair almost as colorful as her outfits, Suki rocks purple, blue and pink locks. When it comes to accessories, no amount is too much, and her earmuffs make her extra unique. Did I mention she loves rainbows and her favorite food is cupcakes? Yum!

Shizuka – She’s the quiet one. Smart and super shy, but you’d never know just from looking at her outfits. Shizuka is dressed from head-to-toe in hot pink, including her hair. And guess what? She’s super unique with one blue eye and one green eye! Watch out fashion world, Shizuka’s working on her fashion designs and they’ll be hitting the runway before you know it!

Namika (Series 1) – Namika is an earth-friendly gal. She loves learning, especially if it involves science, and enjoys hunting outside for bugs. Her favorite place to visit is the Great Barrier Reef. She’s a great friend and is always willing to lend a hand to anyone.

What makes Shibajuku Girls unique?

Aside from the different personalities, qualities and fashion styles that each Shibajuku Girl possesses, the dolls themselves are unique in their make. Each doll is 13” tall and has a fully posable body.

I’ve been playing around with Miki myself, and love how flexible she is as a doll. Like a real person, Shibajuku Girls have flexible joints not only at the neck, shoulder and hips (like typical dolls feature), but also at the elbows, wrists and knees.

I never had anything like this in a doll when I was growing up!

It’s funny to watch my daughter sit and wave at Miki, as I bend her elbows and hand as though she’s waving to her.

On top of that, the eyes are made of glass, giving a more realistic look. I didn’t even notice this at first, but I love the overall attention to detail!

Get a Shibajuku Girl: Shibajuku girls are starting to take over some of my favorite retailers, including Target ($24.99) and Amazon (Series 1 – $29.99)!

You’ve probably seen the memes and graphics that say “Always be yourself. Unless you can be a mermaid. Then always be a mermaid.” Now, I like mermaids, but I like myself even better!

All I’m trying to be is me. I may not be the perfect mom (who is?). Or cook dinner every day (take out please!). Or clean the house daily (this home is lived in). Or put myself together with full makeup every day (ain’t nobody got time for that). Or even get out of my PJ’s for that matter.

But that’s me. Take it or leave it.

And while I may not be or do these things every day, I AM a loving and caring mom, my kids are ALWAYS fed, and the messes around the house show how much FUN my kids have. As for wearing PJ’s all day, let’s just say I’m a SELFLESS person who puts others’ needs before mine.

The new "Be Series" graphic tees from Cents of Style is everything we need to aspire to be what we want. Me? I'm choosing to just be me with my new "Be You" tee and hopefully I can inspire you to do just that, BE YOU! #CentsofStyle #BeSeries #BeStory #fashion #womensfashion

All of this makes me super awesome! I just hope the world can handle all this awesomeness because I’m not changing me for anything.

And ya know, I think you should “Be You” too. Besides, there’s only one YOU! No imitation or duplication available!

This is why I love my new “Be You” graphic tee from the Cents of StyleBe Series.” I wear it proud and hope that when you see me in the streets (or in the grocery store, haha) you’ll remember to stay true to yourself and make life easier by just being you. Whether you shine bright or lay low, always BE YOU!
