Dressthat.com Homecoming Dresses


Hi dolls,

Do you remember your high school days? Mine were quite a few moons ago but I still swoon over the dresses the ladies wear at prom in the movies, Grease, Back to the Future and even Footloose! Equally beautiful are the homecoming dresses by dressthat. The wonderful thing, is that at dressthat, you'll find trendy, avant-guarde, fashion statement dresses as well as more classic, vintage-style dresses. I'm not talking only about homecoming and prom dresses. They're also specialized in wedding dresses, bridesmaid dresses, quinceanera dresses, cocktail dresses and just all special occasion dresses you could think of! You'll also find accessories and vintage inspired dresses (which I'd wear every day, obviously not only on special occasions :)). Dressthat offers such a vast selection of so many different style dresses, at great prices. Here are a few examples of cheap homecoming dresses by dressthat:






These are just a few beauties by dressthat, but there are so many more colors and types of dresses on their website to satisfy your taste and body type. You should  definitely browse through their selection of items and dear vintage lovin' readers: take a look at their ''vintage dresses'' selection. Wow!

KAWAII BOX - REVIEW and......GIVEAWAY!!!


Konnichiwa everyone! That's hello in Japanese, by the way ;) 

Are you a fan of all things kawaii (''cute'' in Japanese)?? If yes, well I know the perfect box for you. If you're not a fan, well, you will become one. Yes, because nobody can resist the cuteness of kawaii! I like kawaii things, my mother likes kawaii things and my cousin's baby loves kawaii things. In fact, I think Kawaii Box is for all ages and it makes everyone smile! So, what is Kawaii Box?

Kawaii Box (www.kawaiibox.com) is a monthly subscription box that contains from 10 - 12 handpicked, Japanese and Korean, kawaii products (from useful stationery, to delicious snacks, to adorable accessories and more!). What I like best about this box (apart from its super fun contents), is the surprise factor. Each month, you don't know what you'll be getting. You do know however that you'll be getting something (10 - 12 things to be precise, that are) very kawaii! 

There are different subscription plans (click here for more details) at great prices and Kawaii Box offers free worldwide shipping! They always send a tracking number and I have to say that I received my box really quickly even though I'm all the way in Italy. Now, let me show you my July 2016 Kawaii Box:
There's a little card with a list of everything in the box (in case you don't read Japanese or Korean!). July's Kawaii Box contains 11 items:
Let's take a closer look at each item:

1.) Fruit Day Card Case (So useful and SO cute! Y'all know how I love pineapples! I know where I'll be keeping my business cards from now on.)

2.) Doodle Gel Pen (Yes, there are cacti all over this pen!!! <3)
3.) Jewelry Seal Deco Stickers (to beautify your boxes, mirrors etc.) I'm gonna stick a few of these on my cell phone's cover, just because!

4.) Hearts & Bows Stickers. These are almost too kawaii too use! I think I'll be sticking these on birthday cards and letters :)
5.) Tohato Caramel Corn. These are Japanese corn and peanut puffs, with added caramel paste. So oishii -yummy! 

6.) Coris Soft Candy Stick - chewy, cola flavored, Japanese candy. 
Needless to say, I love this too ;)
7.) Kawaii Comb (I'm gonna be using this one a lot. It'll easily fit in my bag and it's perfect for creating my bumper bangs!)

8.) Cute Animal Pill Case.  While travelling, going around with huge bottles isn't ideal so this is also very useful. As you can see, there are four compartments:
9.) Kawaii Jump Rope (Holy Smoke! If this isn't incentive to get you jumpin'......;))
10.) Round Neko Plush Charm (extremely soft!! You can hang this around your bag. I'm keeping it far away from my chihuahua!)

11.) Pusheen Sleep Mask. Velvety! I've always needed one of these; might even use it on a plane next time I travel!
I think it's pretty obvious that I am very happy with my Kawaii Box =)
My little Rocky was equally impressed and tried to snitch my kawaii goodies:

Konnichiwa a tutti! Vi ricordate i miei post precedenti di Kawaii Box?
Kawaii Box (www.kawaiibox.com) è un servizio in abbonamento che spedisce una volta al mese, una scatola strapiena di oggetti, accessori e merendine giapponesi e koreani.

Cowgirls and Apples! ZAFUL Review


Howdy Guys and Gals!

Today I'm going to show you two fantastic items I got from Zaful (www.zaful.com). In my previous post, I showed you my wishlist, featuring retro inspired items from Zaful. From that post alone, you can tell what a great online store Zaful is! They sell a vast variety of clothing, swimwear, shoes, accessories in so many different styles (from vintage inspired to the latest trends). The prices are low, the quality is high and yes indeedy, they ship worldwide. 

Now, I love early country/hillbilly music and western fashion, so my eyes popped when I saw the below dress by Zaful! It's even prettier in person:



I couldn't find any horses or real life cows to pose with.......
 but I did bump into this cow statue:
Thank you to my friend, Bibi, for having snapped these pictures! <3
I love the flattering cut of the dress. There are two little flaps on the chest area and there are two straps which you tie into a bow behind. I just love that because it nips in the waist and plus you know, bows are pretty :) 
The material of the dress is soft and light; I wore it under the scorching sun, at the beach, at night, on an airplane and I'm surprised how comfortable it is (even after having a huge burger and even huger milkshake). In a rush, I stuffed it into my bag and scrunched it up into my suitcase but it's still in tip top shape! The color is gorgeous too, being a brick/rusty shade of red. It's available in other colors; red is my favorite but the black version is beautiful too!
What I love the most though is the fabulous print! 
Look at all the pinup cowgirl cuties <3
I think this is the kind of dress you can dress up and dress down. I'm wearing it with flat ballerinas in these photos but I've worn it with red sneakers for a more casual look and with black heels it makes for a great party dress! Oh and I'm sure it would look might swell with cowboy boots!! 

As you can see, the dress reaches right above my knees which is perfect for the summer. I've been running around in it and surprisingly the material hasn't made me sweat at all! As for sizing, I followed the size chart on Zaful's site and chose a size M, accordingly. The dress fits me perfectly; yay for precise size charts! 
You know what goes well with this cowgirl print dress?? A straw bag! 
Even better when there are apples on it!!! 
This Weaving Apple Pattern Gingham Tote Bag from Zaful is a beauty.
Apart from being cute, whimsical and very original, it's sturdy and roomy.

I'm really happy with my dress and bag from Zaful. I confirm that not only are the items gorgeous, they're also of great quality. I was equally impressed by the efficient customer service and super quick (and tracked) shipping. 


I think I'm gonna go heard some cattle now.......
and then go apple pickin' ;)

My Zaful Wishlist


Hi there Cats and Kittens,

Hope you're enjoying the summer! I have another Wishlist that I just have to show you and this time all of the items are from www.zaful.com

Let me expose you to the objects of my desire and let's see if your eyes get tempted too! :) Click on the pink text for more details:
'Cause a girl can't have enough fruity dresses!
Imagine sipping on a Pina Colada......
 or biting into a watermelon wedge while wearing these! ;)
I love nautical style and tropical prints. I never thought I'd be into leopard print but it's actually very rockabilly and this bikini screams Bettie Page! 
Clockwise from top left:
Can you refuse polka dots and stripes?? No siree!

I've always liked vintage, Mexican style outfits. One day, I'll show you some Mexican inspired looks of mine. In the meanwhile, the above top and skirt 
would make a muy bonito ensemble!
Yup, I'm already looking for winter dresses and these two are perfection - 
so classy!
Many of you may know by now how much I love rockabilly (real, original 1950s rockabilly) and country music. I'd love to wear these two western style dresses above with cowboy boots, strummin' my ol' guitar. Tweedle dee! :)
               Oh and I just gotta have this music note skirt (too)! 

             ****************************************************


Niente male la mia nuova Wishlist vero?? Ho scelto dei capi ispirati al vintage, al rockabilly, al western....degli abiti ''fruttati'', bikini stile marinaro e con stampe tropicali...e ho anche aggiunto un po' di stile vintage, Messicano, che mi è sempre piaciuto. Poi non potevo non includere la gonna con fantasia a note musicali!!! Tutti i capi sono di ZAFUL. Conoscete questa marca?? Ciao bambole!

Rosegal Dresses Review

Hi Guys and Dolls,

In my previous post, I showed you my Wishlist, bursting with retro-style items from www.rosegal.com and in today's post I'm going to show you two dresses I got from this fantastic, online clothing shop!

Rosegal has a great selection of clothes and accessories, both for women and for men. By accessories, I don't mean just hats, sunglasses and jewelry. You'll even find makeup, party supplies and kitchen tools at this online store! What impresses me is not just the vast variety of items that you can find at Rosegal, but also the affordable prices (and free world wide shipping!) and the vintage-inspired selection!!! You all know how my eyes turn into big hearts when I see anything vintage-style! Rosegal caters to every taste however. Whether you like classic, fifties style fashion or cute, modern, Asian fashion or eccentric, statement clothing, Rosegal will ensure your shopping cart is full :)

Without further ado, here is the first dress I received from Rosegal;
This is the perfect, red, rockabilly, halter dress! 
Look at the polka dots and cute little buttons in the front! <3 
I like how the dress nips in the waist and I love the sweetheart neckline. 
Both qualities make this dress very feminine and flattering! 
As you can see, this is the kind of dress that looks amazing with and without a petticoat, thanks to the 1950s style, floaty skirt: 
Being a halter dress, there are two straps that you tie around your neck, easily adjusting to your body.
Shake, rattle and roll down the stairs! Haha
 This dress is 95% cotton and 5% spandex. It's soft and it has just the right amount of thickness, being neither too thin nor too thick. I'm really impressed with the quality. As for sizing, I followed the chart on Rosegal's website and chose the smallest size, S. The dress fits me to a T so I can confirm that it runs true to size. Lengthwise, this dress covers my knees, reaching a bit below them, which is exactly what I like and look for in a '50s style dress. 


On to the second Rosegal dress!

I chose this dress because of the gorgeous, Hawaiian inspired, floral print! 
I love it because you can dress it up and wear it to a cocktail party or 
you can wear it on a lovely summer's day, at the beach. 
Yes, this dress has pockets!!! <3
This dress is also great quality, made out of stretchy material that perfectly hugs your body in the right places! I chose a size Small, following the bust and waist measurements, indicated on Rosegal's chart and you can see that it fits me perfectly. The dress also came with a cute, little belt made out of the same fabric. Oh, and did I mention that the dress has pockets??

      ....And the Final Verdict is.....


There's nothing not to love about the two dresses I have from Rosegal! The dresses are dreamy, the prices are very convenient, the quality is great, as is the service. Not only is the staff efficient and quick to respond to your queries, can you believe that I received the package in only 4 days?? I'm very satisfied with my experience at Rosegal. I hope you found my review helpful and I'm sure you'll find some eye candy (for you to wear!) at Rosegal.
