Thanks you guys!
Much Love, Ayumi
I’ve been getting a little tired of wearing the same clothes everyday so I thought I’d stop by Plato’s Closet after school today to see what I could find and I hit the jackpot!
I would have a lot more clothes to wear but most of my wardrobe consists of little black dresses that don’t work out so well here in Hawaii. It’s too bad but what can you do right?
I ended up getting 5 things for only $17.28! 4 out of the 5 things that I got were half off! So I ended up saving $11.50 in discounts!
And I apologize ahead of time, my phone, however smart it may be, does not take the best photos.
First I got a cat shirt!
I just HAD to have it! I mean, come on, IT HAS CATS ON IT!
I might just wear it as is or I might bedazzle and stud the shit out of it but I haven’t decided yet…
Second I got a tubetop! It’s hard to find one’s that fit when you’re flat chested…it’s sad but true.
Cute summery top perfect for the beach or school. Looks absolutely adorable with a pair of shorts.
Next I got another white tube top. It was my lucky day, believe me.
I haven’t heard of this brand till just now but I found the website and it looks pretty cute!
But apparently it’s only open to Wholesale buyers only. Oh well.
Next is a cute picnic style top.
Brand: Old Navy
These REALLY match my cowboy boots! I love it! Makes me feel all country~
And last but not least is a flower pattern tube top dress! I found 3 tube top articles of clothing on one shopping trip! It’s a miracle!
The second picture is the true color of the fabric, the first picture does it no justice.
Brand: Forever 21
It’s adorable and fits perfectly! Summer time here I come!
I got some great finds and I am so excited! Yay for dressing well on a budget!
So Mark and I went to Target the other day and what do I find?
An Arrested Development Bluth’s Original Frozen Banana shirt!
But of course, like most of Target’s graphic T collection, they are all in Men’s sizes but I couldn’t give up the opportunity to get the shirt!
Who could possibly resist?
I’m usually a Women’s XS-S but the smallest one that they had was a Men’s S so I bought it and today I decided to DIY it so that it would fit my form better and it worked out just perfectly!
First I traced a fitted shirt on top of the new larger shirt and then cut the sides so it would be the same size as my fitted shirt.
Then I took the fitted shirt, got a piece of paper and outlined the sleeves. I then took the paper, cut the shape out and then proceeded to cut the shape out of the sleeves that I had just cut off from the larger shirt.
I then sewed the two right sides of the shirt and one of the sleeves together and then repeated on the other side.
After that I sewed down the sides of the shirt.
Then after I made sure it fit, I cut out the neck line to make it more feminine.
After that I turned the shirt around, made a cut in the back and made that into a bow for the back.
I then trimmed the bottom of the shirt and finished it so no seams would come lose.
I love my new shirt and Mark likes it too!
There’s ALWAYS money in the Banana Stand!
I hope everyone has a good Valentine’s Day or Single’s Awareness Day or what have you!
Or you can just have a regular Thursday, it’s up to you!
Either way, I’ve been having a fun couple of days baking goodies and sharing them with friends.
I’ve also been planning a lot of activities for when Eddie comes to visit for my Graduation! We’re going to do everything!
Shark cage tours! Kayaking! Parasailing! Jet skiing! Scuba Diving!
And so we both need to save some kind of money in order to do that so I told him,
“Whenever you want a drink, just say to yourself ‘Pirate’!”
There are some shipwreck scuba diving tours so I’m going to see if I can make that happen…
And so Eddie sent me this Valentine!
Although the more I look into it, I really do think we need to be certified…
Like I said, I’ll figure it out.
I got Mark a couple sweets but he got a little munch hungry so I gave them to him a little early…
Sooo…I went out and got a few more things for him that I know he’ll like.
Cute right? The bag I got at Walmart and the Japanese snacks I got from Nijiya on my way to school this morning.
I’m so glad they all fit in there. Yay!
And here’s my little Valentine’s Day outfit for today:
Decided to go a little school girl today, just because I thought it would be cute.
Still playing around with photo editor apps but it’ll work out eventually.
Happy Valentine’s Day!
So I’ve been posting a couple fashion NO’s here and there but my classmate wore the most fabulous pants the other day and I just HAD to share!
My friend here is wearing a classic plain black tank top with a gorgeous pair of Ralph Lauren Navy blue striped capris.
This simple look paired with sandals is perfect for the beach or for everyday life.
The pants are from Savers (thrift store) and were apparently only $7!
What a steal!
So ladies, stay classy and simple and it’s a win win for everybody!
I think those pictures that Getty took of her are SO flattering!
Who doesn’t love a little ZoidBey.
Thanks Comedy Central!
Made my day, that’s for sure.
And for those of you who are curious to see what photos that Beyonce are talking about here is a link to a fellow blogger’s page that has them all posted for you to see.
I don’t care if we live in Hawaii.
NO down to the knee sheer top/dresses people.
Not ones like these anyways…
Longer dresses not only make you look shorter but without a belt or darts worked into the outfit it also makes you look fat(ter) too.
I’m serious people.
And I don’t know if you can see in the second picture but it does nothing for your chests too.
It’s just flat down and awkward.
No more asymmetrical long in the back shapeless tops please.
And yes, I had to be a creeper to take these photos.
-Fake light blue sleeveless jean jacket
-Orange, Blue & Purple beach backpack
-Leopard jeans folded up
-Matching light blue tennis shoes
-Brown cowboy belt
-Pink (I’ve had it since high school) gel watch
What is she trying to pull off? The only two things that “match” is the color of the shoes with the vest/jacket and even that is a big FASHION NO. It looks like she’s going for a Peggy Bundy meets the 80s look. Too bad that SOUNDS cooler than it actually looks, at least on her anyways.
Ladies, when you’re going to wear a print, especially an animal print, it looks best if you match it with solid colors like white, black, grey and so on. The light blue makes everything muddled and confusing. People won’t know where to look or what to think of you. If you want to go beyond just the one animal print item the key is with the accessories. With basic solid colors you can wear accessories to bump the whole look.
Just saying ladies. Don’t make me take a picture of you on campus!
