Vine pattern pom pom Shorts – #fashionfriday

These pom pom edged shorts are pretty cute! They only come in Medium – X-large for some reason, so I decided to order the medium hoping that if they don’t make a small, the medium would fit a small person as well. They do fit, but seem just a tiny bit baggy. They are not going to fall off or anything, but it would have been nice if they actually made a small in these – cut to fit a smaller person better. If you are a true medium, just note they are made a bit small to fit a medium/small person. The material is lightweight and lightly textured and the teal green color is really pretty – I love the pom pom details! You can find this item here.

*Although I did receive these shorts at a discount to review on Amazon, I was not paid or asked to review them on my blog and am doing that just for fun. All opinions expressed are entirely my own.

So, I may have gone a bit overboard with all the discounted stuff to review for Amazon, as I received these the end of August and am just now putting them up on the blog. I have since stopped reviewing stuff from Amazon for the time being, but still have several more clothing items to review before I get to the end… You’ll just have to be patient and wait if you want to see what all I got.

Seems to be the story of my life lately. Always waiting. Waiting to hear the test results from my moms surgery. Waiting again to hear an ‘All’s clear!’ on cancer for her. Waiting to hear back if I got parts I auditioned for. Waiting to hear from people… Sometimes life seems to be a big waiting game. But in the meantime, let’s have some fashion fun!

Clearance sales, Butterfly tee & Star shorts #fashionfriday

I love shopping clearance racks because I hate paying full price for anything I buy. And even a sale price isn’t good enough for me. I want a bargain! I’m looking for a super good deal when I’m shopping.

A couple of weeks ago, I got one of those ten dollars off anything in the store  post cards from Khols. I love those things! It really is good off anything in the store – even the clearance racks. And, because I like a good deal, I went directly to the clearance racks. I’ve got to get the most bang from my bucks as possible.

I found several things I liked and hauled them all into the fitting rooms. One by one, I weeded all but three items out. The two that were the best deal were still under $10 total, but the third item was $16.20. Hmmm. I like deals even better than that, but I had the $10 off coupon, so I finally decided to get all three items. I ended up with a dress for $6, and butterfly tee for $2.80, and the shorts with $10 off with my savings postcard. If I had a Khols credit card, I could have saved an additional 10%-30% with a scratch off card they have at the registers. I usually just bring my mom along so I can have her use her discount for having a credit card if there is one, but, this was an impromptu trip when I realized my 10 off card was expiring soon, so I took off quickly and didn’t stop to drag her along for additional savings. Ha.

I still don’t have pictures of me in the dress, but I did go out and get photos in the butterfly tee and star shorts – while practicing doing my own photos for days when I don’t have help photographing items for product reviews. They have a nice back-to-school feel to them, so I thought I’d post them now for all of you who are going back to school or have kids about to go back to school or have already started back to school. I’ll try to get photos of the dress for another Fashion Friday. I’d put a link to them on Kohl’s on here, but I can’t even find them on the website any more, so I’d guess they are gone now, or you could scour your local Kohl’s clearance racks to find similar items.
