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! There are polka dots, cherries, fun prints and guess what? If you get two, shipping is free!

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?

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' ;)
