Here's the second serving of my dream outfit series. I decided to do another since they are loads of fun! Here's some of the latest stuff I'm wishing for these days. Yes there will be loads of platforms and dresses! Anyhow, for this first outfit you'll notice that all the accessories give back to the dress. What I mean by this is that the colors are all pretty close to what you find on the dress. Yup pastel. These freaking earrings are so cute-- but are a bit brash if you're into that sort of thing (I know I am). I'm a sucker for the sunnies because of the mod-air they give off. The bag is perfect for travel and for pastel palette outfits since it's so basic. The shoes are a bit pricey but I love platforms and white shoes work wonderfully with such a bright outfit. As for the dress it's, in my view, the centerpiece. The socks need no explanation since who doesn't love frilly socks?
I'm really loving the quirky pine-apple bag here. It really reminds me of the design Moschino produced. Which is a hefting $700 by the way. This outfit is based around some trends like 'hologram' shoes as well as some summer-y themes: flowers, pineapples. Also Tiny Tim! Yes you probably have heard of him (but not even know it). That's because his song: Livin' in the Sunlight, Lovin' in the Moonlight is featured in a distinct cartoon called Spongebob Squarepants. The pineapple bag and the dress reminded me of Spongebob so I decided to also incorporate Tiny Tim's album into this as well.
I love wearing darker outfits too you know. I really dig items that look unique and odd. This outfit is pretty eye-catching but also is a little bit subtle as well-- okay maybe those socks scream 'witch house' but I mean you feel me right? Also I wasn't sure how the dress would fit on the shirt but this is all completely conceptual so forgive me if I'm being a little off here. Here's a little secret *I actually own the shoes* I couldn't resist anddd who doesn't love cut-out boots! The sunglasses make me think of Wildfox's Bel Air shades as well as Chanel's vintage sunglasses. And we can't forget about the gorgeous black pony bag! How cute is it!? It definitely feels a lot like this designer bag (bonus points if you can name it)

Wholesale 7 Haul #2

Hey everyone I've got another mini wholesale7 haul coming at you. It's been a long time since I've bought products from wholesale7 but out of the blue I just decided to grab a few things that caught my fancy-- now here I am back with another haul for you guys. Again, I bought all these items with my own money none of this was sent to me free. If you're interested in a tutorial in how to buy things on this website as well as another review click here. If you want to see a review of shoes from wholesale7 click here.

Okay so let's move onto the haul I received.
Starting with the stock photos

What I received:
Okay, first of all the description on this thing says it's "rubber" which is a blatant lie. There is nothing rubber about this (I suppose if you consider PU leather rubber ?) but the wing embellishments on this baby feel sort of like porcelain? or plastic definitely not cheap feeling plastic though it's very sturdy. The thing I don't really like about it is how it feels really bulky and heavy since the wings are made of a heavy material. It looks exactly like the picture and everything but I noticed there are minor scratches or blemishes on the left sandal. Still pretty pleased though!


What I Received

I don't really have any complaints about this item. It looks strikingly the same in the stock photo (even has the same logo on the bottom go figure). I don't think I've ever gotten an item from this site that was so similar to the stock photo-- yes I'm saying this site is usually hit or miss and these platforms happen to be my biggest hit yet! Okay I lied about having no complaints I do have one: the way it was packaged was stupid since it damaged and wrinkled the left shoe's little gold thing slightly :c You can see it on the picture if you look closely. Although what can I really expect with how packages are treated in transit these days?

What I Received
Okay so it's pretty obvious that the flowers in the stock photo are way brighter than the actual dress. But I could sort of tell that the photo was retouched and the brightness seemed like it was amped up. So I was already expecting it to be this way. I'm a little mixed because I actually prefer the flowers being like this. I'm really happy with this dress the pattern reminds me of one of Wildfox's sweaters. It's perfect for summer since it's chiffon and has short sleeves! I'm really happy it's shaped the same and there were no loose threads!


What I Received
Haha, I know it's strange how I posted two pictures of this item but I just wanted to show you all how amazing the sides on these platforms are. It's as if there are pyramids on them. They aren't even printed on like they are actually shaped like that and jut out and everything.These shoes are uh-may-zing. Again wholesale7 gives me a break by giving me something that looks exactly like the stock photo. Even the logo on the bottom appears to be the same. Also these are my favorites since I really love unique looking shoes. I just can't find anything bad about these shoes so I am giving them a 5. c:
