A little over a month ago I launched a new blog with my two sisters, Wild Heart Collective. This has been something we have dreamed about doing together for a very long time so we are thrilled that it is finally a reality!
We will be sharing style posts, tutorials, recipes, local oklahoma city gems, and much more. We would love for you to follow along!
I will occasionally write here on Shabby Loves Chic and I will keep up my personal social media accounts, but for the most part my blog focus is Wild Heart. If you’re interested in collaborating please email firstname.lastname@example.org
I am so excited about this new journey and look forward to sharing it with all of you! xo
There are so many places to shop online these days! Especially if you throw in the option to shop from somewhere overseas! There are quite a few super affordable overseas online shops, like Buying Dress!
I was super excited when Buying Dress allowed me to pick out two new coats to review and post here on my blog. I chose a new black coat and a shorter camel colored one. Take a look!
Overall my experience with Buying Dress was great! Really great customer service and lots of items to choose from! However, there were a few hiccups/faults and I have to be honest about those…
This camel colored coat is so cute! Only flaw is that it’s definitely not a “coat”, more like a jacket. Much thinner than what is described and fits a bit snugger than I had hoped. But a great price!
The black coat I thought I was ordering was THIS one. The one I received in the mail was the one below.
Cute! But so not what I thought I was ordering, which is frustrating. This coat is also much thinner than I had hoped. But I love the fit and simplicity of it! And for $33?! It’s almost a no brainer.
If you like cute, yet affordable clothing and you don’t mind waiting a month or more to receive your items…then purchasing from Buying Dress is just for you! I would definitely suggest running over and taking a look at what they have to offer!
Have any of you given overseas shopping a whirl before?! What was your experience like?
In just a few short weeks I will be 29. The last year of my twenties! I’m not sure what turning 30 will feel like, but these weeks leading up to 29 are weird. I’m sure I will have a few more elaborate thoughts on the matter as the day gets closer!
Until then, here is a little birthday wish-list I put together…
What started as a temporary 6 month move to Oklahoma to spend some time with my family has turned into more. We have decided to stick around for awhile. Buy a house. Settle down for a bit. (This could be 2 years? More? Less? We kinda like to not have much of a long term plan when it comes to where we live! Hence the fact that we have moved 4 times in 3 years of marriage)
I had this very romantic idea of house hunting before we we actually ever started looking to buy. In my mind looking for our first house would go something like this…. we meet our realtor for a day of looking at houses. We walk through a few we hate, one or two maybe’s, and then we walk into ‘the one’. At this point the hallelujah chorus plays, I cry like the day I picked out my wedding dress, we sign the papers and BAM we are sitting on the floor of our first house eating pizza surrounded by boxes that need unpacking. Now, for those of you seasoned house hunters, home buyers, etc. I’m sure you are all snickering and thinking about how naive I must be. And I agree with you – super naive. I blame it on romance movies & novels.
The last 4 months or so of looking for houses have gone more like this…
1. spend hours everyday pouring over listings on trulia 2. drive around our favorite okc neighborhoods looking for sale signs that weren’t there the day before when we drove by 3. meet with our realtor and walk through a million hideous homes, a few semi-cute ones with the most awful kitchens you’ve ever seen, and one or two adorably perfect homes that go under contract before we can even think about putting in an offer. 4. realize God is trying to teach me some serious patience and trust in Him through this process.
The most perfect house is out there, I know it! So I will search everyday, work on my patience & practice singing the hallelujah chorus so when the right house comes along I’ll be ready.
Anyone else been through this same sort of experience?
