Fashion & Lifestyle Haul What I Bought
After seeing so many posts about different bloggers sale purchase I wanted to show you what I picked up so I’m back today with a haul that I have accumulated before and after Christmas with the incredible sales and I do have some purchase back from October as well that I popped in. So since I never did a collective haul nor have I did a fashion haul so this is both combined. Now I’m excited to show you some fashion, beauty and a few lifestyle bits I treated myself to!
I am sharing with you a pretty big clothing haul and my first which I wanted to do before but didn’t know how to take pictures of them but I found a way so let me show you what I picked up. I started fashion school and did a whole post introducing that here if you want to read about that. I’m taking Fashion Styling so of course I needed new clothes to style myself in leading me to spend a lot of money but of course it was a treat to myself as well. I bought a few clothes from Forever 21 and it is my absolutely favorite store to find cute stuff that fits me and that I like so it is a big plus! You’ve also seen some of the pieces in some outfit posts already but at least you can also see them worn.
Lace Sleeve Tee
| Price // 755php | LINK |
This was the first blouse I picked up and just loved the sleeves on this. I got this at the Forver21 SM Southmall Grand Launch Event as well as the next top. I was invited and of course I needed to get something there which ended up being this tee. I love it and I love that it can be feminine or I can add some edge to it. It isn’t too sheer and the material is nice but the sleeves are just to die for and did I mention I love the lace trend right now.
Grey Floral Cutout Tee
| Price // 915php |
I fell in love with the print on this tee and thought it was a great shirt that I could just throw some jeans on with but when I saw the back of it I second guessed it as in the back it is open and I thought do I need this but at the last minute I picked it up thinking I will find use out of it like pairing it with a cute cover up or a tailored blazer to make the look more formal so that’s what I did and I don’t regret it as it is so pretty and as they same business in the front but party in the back.
Pink Floral Peplum Top
| Price // 605php |
This top was picked up at another Forever 21 in SM Aura as I couldn’t wait in such a long line at the event opening so I decided since I was heading to that mall and they had a branch there I picked up the rest of my shopping and picked up most of the items from there. It’s strange seeing how different they are and styles they have in stock. I choose this and though it isn’t summer or spring I loved it and wanted it. They had a few spring clothes in the corner and I don’t know why I was so attracted to that section but maybe all the pink and pastels lured me in. I was trying for more fall clothes so I talked my way out of many other pieces from that section. It is my first peplum top and I’m excited to style this.
Short-Sleeved Peplum Top
| Price // 765php | LINK |
I saw this and grabbed it in my size right away. It was the first thing I picked up and I saw this when I went there from a previous visit but was only browsing. I feel like I am going to have fun styling this as it is a thick cream peplum blouse that can pretty much be styled with anything I feel like. My next purchase was made me get it even more though. I also love the material it is made out of and it is pretty good stuff and very balloon like which makes me feel and look feminine while wearing it.
Paneled Knit Leggings in Burgandy
| Price // 295php | LINK |
These are amazing and I saw this right besides the cream peplum top
and I knew that would be an amazing outfit. Can you imagine these
leggings with that cream peplum paired with a black bag and shoes with
gold accessories? It is fashion heaven right there for me and this will
pretty much be my staple fall outfit from now on and I will wear it as
much as I can trust me. I have other ways to style these as well and
thought they were some great leggings plus the color is to die for this
season and they are thick so a good plus as well. What more can you ask
for? There are no words to describe how happy I felt picking those two pieces up.
You cannot go to Forever 21 without browsing their jewelry and bag selection and im always guilty of picking something up and I did end up buying a few other things as well and have become obsessed with the jewelry the most and I have now been trying to pick up a few more pieces each trip to build up a collection. I also cannot leave without buying a bow that matches the outfit I bought that day. It is a serious crime if I do. So these are my picks from that trip.
Structured Faux Leather Satchel
| Price // 1,590php | LINK |
I really want a Michael Kors bag but right now I don’t have a budget just to splurge on a bag like that so I went for the next best thing and got a dupe from the high street. I always loved looking at the bags at Forever21 but never bought one until now. I was in need of a new bag and this time I wanted it to be black and classic looking for once as I have never owned one and I thought it would be very basic to pair with a lot of outfits. I seen this style of bag on many fashion blogs and I consider it the “fashion blogger bag” and I really wanted one myself just not a name brand for now. The price was actually quite reasonable and seems like such good quality and I will probably get a lot of use out of this so get ready and you’ll be seeing this in many upcoming what I wore posts.
Polka Dot Hair Tie Set
| Price // 165php | LINK |
I needed some hair ties so I saw these and thought they were pretty so I picked them up. I have seen these everywhere and needed to try them myself so into the basket they went.
Ribbed Hair Bow
| Price // 160php | LINK |
I saw this bow and cannot leave Forvever21 without a bow to match one of my outfits or sometimes all. If you know me you know my bow and this one was a cool texture and I have another top in this shade so it would give me another reason to wear it. i just love me my bows and you probably should see my collection but i need to collect more I tell you.
| Price // 160php |
A floral bow was a must as well as I thought it would be neat with my grey floral top and it just looked so cute and was the last one so I was weak and picked it up as well. I would be wearing this all spring I think and isn’t it adorable.
Pink Dream Nail Polish
| Price // 160php | LINK |
Okay I was attracted to this nail polish right away by the counter and picked it up. I didn’t care about seasons or trends but needed I and I tried it and loved it so much. I can;t wait to wear it all summer and pair it with so many things and designs.
Diamond Bow Earrings
| Price // 225php |
I love me my bows and I needed some classic earrings and saw these so I knew they had to be mine because look at how cute they are and I will probably never take these off and these will become my signature earrings I am telling you.
I needed some new shoes and I thought getting some flats would be great as they used to be my favorite before I became a sandal convert. I go to Payless since this is the only place that currently has my size
and they have some good shoes that re also cute and fashionable so that
as good they opened one here. So here is the shoes part of the haul.
Dime ID Bracelet Flat
| Price // 899php | LINK |
The first pair was shoes I would have never thought I would buy but I went with it and thought they were cute and different for once from what I usually get. I think this is a flat but also a kind of loafer style look which I am embracing now and think it is cute and gives a different feel than my ballet flats. I love the detailing and the color of these and think since it is still a neutral color it would be great with many outfits and can be worn with different things as well. I’m proud of this purchase and think they would look nice in my shoe collection.
| Price // 799php | LINK |
These were the only black shoes they had at the time and I wasn’t really feeling the others but this pair caught my eye. It is a lovely shiny black and it has a need bow and lining around it and I thought it would look better than my simple just black ones to give some color for once. The are pretty snug but comfy and overall just lovely footwear I cannot wait to pair with outfits.
Montego Bay Club Flat Flip Flops
| Price // 299php | LINK |
I needed a new pair of flip-flops and since I wear them year round either sometimes out or around the house I knew it was time to pick up some basic ones and I have already owned a few of these and love them so much so I end up going to Payless just for these sometimes. They are the perfect size, have cute styles and really affordable for me.
Of course I wouldn’t forget about purchasing anything beauty related and picked up two things from Lush after resisting myself that it could wait and I could buy more later and which I am planning on because those Lush hauls all over my bloglovin feed have convinced me that I need to pick something up as well. I blame all the blogs I follow for making me do this and yes I am eying you guys. So after popping into Lush I came out with two purchases and here they are!
D’Fluff Shaving Cream
| Price // 995php |
So first thing I picked up from Lush and the reason to go there was this.I’ve heard a lot of good things and wanted to try it myself. I was in need of a new shaving cream and was planning on getting this to do my legs as they grow a tad too fast for my liking so I wanted to try this out for that. I love strawberry and it is one of my all time favorite scents and I cannot tell you how many strawberry scented products I on because it is a tad bit embarrassing and I had to go out and add this making it grow even bigger. The scent is amazing and I cannot wait to try it in the shower and how it is like. I’ll be doing reviews on these too a little down the road after Ive used them enough times but I’m excited for my new Lush purchase.
Aqua Mirabilis Body Butter
| Price // 750php |
I’ve been curious about this after seeing it in various youtube videos and blog posts and I took those people advice and picked it up after I of course tried it in store on my arm and it felt amazing so I had to get it after it left my hand so soft. I got the tin with it as I had no other place to put it and it looks so cute in it but when I repurchase this I’m probably not going to get the tin unless I end up buying another body butter. It is definitely a lovely product and Lush is becoming one of my fave beauty stores to visit and I love popping in to see the products and just smelling the store leaves me happy.
And lastly the essentials or just random stuff I saw and thought I needed in my life. I get sucked into buying things that I think I need but only want them so it is a vicious cycle and tell me I am not alone with this. So I got stuff at a bookstore, a boutique and also a Japanese store which is sort of like a 99cent store or Dollar Tree that sells all kinds of stuff for 88php that come from Japan. I love that store and it is a definite weakness not to leave there without buying something as you can just pick up so many things you need or think you need in my case.
| Price //150php |
I go through headphones every 2-3 months I’m thinking because they some how always break so I end up buying some fairly cheap ones and yeah I could go all out and buy some good ones but I don’t want to in case they do break and it will be sad and Ill regret them even more if I end u break those so these don’t really hurt if i end up breaking them. I think the shop where I get it from are okay and I do like the colors and styles they come in. These will be lasting me though because my current ones still work but it has one ear out. They are so cute thought and the color matches all my gadgets which is so pretty together.
| Price // 88php |
So I wanted to drink more water and take it with me while I go to class or out and about so picking up a water bottle was a necessity for me. I wanted a pink one but they didn’t have any I liked or thought was big enough so I went with this one that looked so clean and modern and just so sleek looking instead. It holds 6 ml of water which I think is an okay size and its easy to drink out of which is good too.
Water Bottle Holder
| Price // 88php |
Okay I saw this right beside the selection of water bottles and I thought it was such a cool idea and really think it would go to good use. It can keep it cool and prevent it from spilling which is a plus as well. Also the design on it is so pretty and has such a lovely print so I couldn’t pass this up.
The World According to Key Chain
| Price //199php |
It is a rare thing to see my name on a key chain. It is rarer to see my name spelled correctly on a key chain. So when I saw this I knew I had to get it as I knew I would probably not see one again for a while. I know it says ‘Jackie’ right on there but sometimes I see Jacque or Jacky which is not how I spell mine so it was a shock I saw this. I love my nickname but I hope one day I could find my real name, ‘Jacquelyn’ spelled correctly on one of these things. I do like it and it isn’t just a key chain but inside it is a tiny book with the history o my name, some facts about the name and just random tidbits thrown in there. I think some of it is spot on but at times it isn’t and I think it isn’t my real name so that’s why it only half matches but either way real cute.
Heart Clip Key Chain
| Price // 88php |
I got this to go long with the other key chain and to get another one to replace the one I have on my keys which is all banged up now. I love these and they are so useful and also cute too. It could also go with my key chain above and also on my bag and my mini bag because I’m always needing a key chain but never have one so I now I do.
That is it for my first collective/fashion haul and hope you enjoyed perusing all the stuff I bought It was that much but I did enjoy showing you pieces of what I got for myself as I do love reading these kinds of posts and they let me see whats out they and just be nosy to see what other people buy. I hope to do more in the future but right now I’m good and will be saving up to buy more stuff later on which I normally do. Thanks for dropping by and how you enjoyed!
