OASAP-Fashion Hunter-Contrast Colored Striped Short sleeve Loose T-shirt- {Review}

** See end of post for how you can become a Fashion Hunter and review clothing for free from!

I am pretty picky when it comes to fashion. I know what I like, but I tend to have a really hard time finding things that I LOVE, that are worth spending my money on. I recently stumbled upon the most amazing clothing and accessory website,! This website is amazing. It has so many clothing items to choose from, you will be browsing for hours! What is also nice is that they have a ton of variety. While some of the items didn't quite match my personality or style, the other items were EXACTLY what I look for in my ideal wardrobe.

So what IS my style? I adore femininity. Lace. Ruffles. Bows. Polka dots. You get the idea! And because I love that style so much, I decided to go out on a limb and try something from OASAP that I love, but something I wouldn't usually pick for myself. I decided to go bold. Stripes. Bright colors! I was not disappointed. I decided to review the Contrast Colored Striped Short Sleeve Loose T-Shirt!

This shirt fit very true to size and is made with very high quality materials. I love the loose look, yet it isn't too baggy because it has the elastic band around the waist. I loved that it was different than the normal things that I buy, yet I still felt like myself! This is a great shirt that can be dressed up with heels for a night out in town, or do what I did and throw on a pair of shorts and flip flops and run your errands in it. I love having both options!

Here are a few other items that are on my wish list!

                                   Petal Edged Short Sleeve Chiffon Blouse- I love this whole outfit!

                      Short Sleeve Pleated Knee Length Dress- obsessive!

 Cut-out Vamp and Bowknot Pointed Toe Flats-  are these not amazing?? 

Now do you see what I mean? Head on over to and take some time to look through all that they have to offer! OASAP ships FREE everywhere, every time! Also, if you sign up for their emails, you will get a 20% off coupon code in your inbox immediately!

 Oasap can help you get trendy looks for less! It's a great time to pick up a few new outfits for back to school, or for all of us moms who just need some retail therapy so we can look our best, even when we might just feel like frazzled moms!

Tuesday, August 14, 2012 Review & Giveaway!

Saying this might make some of you cringe, so I apologize in advance... but Halloween is around the corner! Personally, I think I am ready this year. It has been a busy and HOT summer for us, and thinking about leaves, pumpkins, and kids all bundled up makes me giddy. I also LOVE Halloween, it might be my favorite Holiday of the year! Something about the spooky parties, silly costumes, and the endless candy. I LOVE CANDY.

But with Halloween comes the dreaded task of choosing costumes for the family, a task that can at times be daunting if you don't have the resources or time to make your own costumes. Not to mention the over-priced costumes at local stores, or picked-over cheapos at Walmart and Target. Well, I just found out about the greatest website ever that has your solution- costumes for all ages, sizes, and price ranges! has been around since 1954 and has been on the internet since 1997. They are different from other costume supply stores in that they offer costumes ALL year long! So if you are in need of a costume for a party mid-year, don't worry, has you covered! offers a huge selection of everything you could need for your costume- adults costumes, kids costumes, plus sizes, shoes, accessories, wigs and more! Their inventory is huge,  and when I say huge, I mean you can't even imagine the selection they offer. You will have more choices to choose from than ever before!

I was asked to review a Women's costume from their store, so I chose the Bygone Witch Costume for Women. You can find this in the Halloween costumes for women section on their website. In my opinion, everyone needs a witch costume in their box of costumes, and this one was perfect! This costume gives you the option of making it a "sexy" costume ( although this is a family blog, so I opted to keep it rated G) with a plunging neckline and velvet dress. This set also comes with the hat, which is awesome because it matches the dress perfectly and if you have ever wanted a nice witch hat, you know they can get costly when purchased separately. The sizing was spot on. I normally wear a small and ordered a size Medium and it was a little bigger than I had hoped. But better than being too small, right? I would definitely say that if you plan on purchasing this item, order the size that you normally would.

So approach this Halloween holiday with excitement, because ordering a costume has never been easier with They ship really fast, always have great coupon codes that you can use, and their exchanges are free, so no worries about ordering a wrong size. You won't be disappointed, I promise!!
